Hopefully this will be close enough. There are still some issues that need worked out of this whole system.


Thanks, as always.

Anything we can do to help in any way?

You know what, midnight and midday have always really confused the hell out of me when referring to am or pm. And now I come to think of it, I have always wondered if midnight referred to was the start of a new day or the end of the previous day... So guess I was neither right nor wrong in this case.

Report any issues on the forum, and make sure to keep playing. Every time we lose a player the site dies just a little bit.

I was going to keep my mouth shut, but that would not be true to my nature.

There's probably nothing on earth that is going to prevent the slow eventual decay of Nuklear LORD. However, if you want to hasten the process, just randomly shut down the realms for days at a time. Nuklear LORD is like cigarettes, or any other bad habit. Give people a little break from it, and they will find other ways to waste their time.

I can appreciate that winning is super important to some people and that if they lose a day or someone gains a day on them, they whine and cry about how things are unfair. However, pandering to the uber competitive few makes life kinda shitty for the fort or fifty of us who aren't all that concerned with whether we lost a day or not. Maybe I'm wrong about this, but watch and see, I bet we have ten percent attrition across the realms due to this little three day hiatus.

I'm aware of and concerned about exactly that. The fact is that we didn't have a lot of choice, this is a complicated system to get working, and I was forced by circumstances to move it to a new server without a lot of time to prepare.

Regarding the future of the site, I'd like to see it not completely die, especially when plenty of other simple games are roaring in popularity. I have some ideas, maybe they can be discussed in another thread.

Thanks for the reply.

I knew the server switch could not be avoided. It seemed we had a further delay by choice so that everyone could play their day, maybe I didn't fully understand the circumstances.

Your work is appreciated
