Hello everyone. I wanted to give you a quick update on the new website. Originally we had wanted to deploy this today, Wednesday, Nov 2. However, the site is not quite done yet. I'm working with a new framework that is much better than the old site, but its taken me more time to get used to its quirks than I planned. At the same time, I also have a lightbulb go off this morning about how to handle Em-8ER's metagame in a very elegant fashion. I think I will be able to combine terraforming, community goals, individual goals, resources, invasions and progression in a very simple and elegant way. I'm pretty excited about the simplicity of the idea and how well I think it could work. I wanted to spend some extra time developing it and making it a part of the new site. It should not take long, as the idea is very simple to explain, which is why I like it so much. I don't yet have an ETA on the site, but I just transferred over all the old blog posts and am reformatting them now. Then I need to write the new post on the progress of the in-game THMPR model, which is looking very sweet (thanks, Joe!). I'll keep you posted on a daily basis and let you know when we are close. Thank you!
