State of Shock
by: Frizz on Wednesday the 19th of August 2020

After a flurry of activity with the pandemic, life is returning to (somewhat) normal.

I've enjoyed diving back into Drop Shock, adding new content, tuning old code and ensuring the server can be around for the foreseeable future. With normality returning I won't have the time I had over the last few months but there are still updates I'd like to make (albeit at a slower pace): specifically concerning the "large army" planets and creating a content / gameplay loop that works for them (similar to what was done to Konu, Aldus and Rynn).

It was wonderful having this time to re-connect with all of you; I hope you'll be able to hop back in from time to time so say hello to old friends and fight a few battles.

Sha'Kahr Hive is Back!
by: Frizz on Sunday the 02nd of August 2020

The Sha'Kahr have returned to Hadeas!

Keep an eye out for their bases and new tactics ...

- Phase Shielding is now capped at 66% (was 95%)
- Chat Images are back =)
- A bug with Movement Orders to the edge of the map has been fixed
- Account creation has been re-activated!

- Several players requested that Construx Sets be sell-able; turns-out (if you scroll to the bottom of the Trade Construx page) they already are =)

New Server Today!
by: Frizz on Wednesday the 22nd of July 2020

We will be migrating to our new, updated server today around 5pm EST. There will be an outage as the old server is switched in to maintenance-mode and data is migrated to the new system. A DNS change-over will also occur which may make the site appear un-reachable.

Directions will be posted to reddit to help accessing the new site. Please avoid deploying to a planet after 4pm EST to avoid losing access to your forces during the migration.
