It has now been well over a year since the last round of this beta ended. I am sure some of you would agree that the air in Skytopia has gotten a little bit musty.

As such, I am happy to announce a game reset coming. To those of you who have not been around for one of these before, don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds.

As the game is in beta, it is sometimes necessary change game mechanics and shift the makeup of the world. Accompanying this is a reset of all in-game characters. Basically, you'll be back in a junker again.

Here's a list of what will happen:
  1. Characters are NOT being deleted. You will not lose your name or your account.
  2. Characters will be placed back in a Junker.
  3. Players will have their skills and skill points reduced back to 0.
  4. Players funds will be set to 10000 (their starting amount).
  5. Influence on the skylands will be zeroed out.
  6. Reputation on the skylands, as well as other stats will be zeroed out.
  7. The skylands will be shifted about.
  8. Plane stats will change, as will their tiering.
  9. Your crew will go back out into Skytopia to look for work (however, we will save the contact information for one of them so that you can remeet them at a later date).
The game will be brought down on November 3rd, 12:01 AM (Central) and will be brought up around November 9th (this second date is liable to shift around a bit, but we'll *try* to have it up by then).

The Olympics will happen before the reset.

I'm sure a number of you are wondering on the progress of things.

Overall, things are going well but are not quite ready for release. We've done a lot of work but we also want to make sure that we can test it as much as we can.

You'll be informed well in advance for when the servers come back up. As to a specific timeframe, I doubt it will happen any time before next Monday.

It is looking like the game coming back up may be further delayed. A number of real life circumstances have caused some things to slip.

The unfortunate thing is that right now we're in a state where a lot of the old systems have been thrown out/rehauled. We *could* roll back and just release with the old systems and perhaps a new map, but at this point we've come quite far and feel it may be worthwhile to continue work so that this release is a big one.

That doesn't answer the question of when we'll be back up though, does it?

Well, it will not be up on Nov 17th, and I deeply apologize for that. You will have at least a day's worth of notice for when the game comes back up.

At this time, I don't have a fixed date. The developers are meeting on Tuesday and will hopefully have more concrete details ironed out.

Game is *NOT* coming up tonight.

It is ready to be released, but we need to be there to monitor it when it comes back up. Currently, we are planning on sleeping.

The game should be back up by Noon, Monday, Central Time.
