I'm not sure yet. I invite a new group every time a new update is released, and I don't know when the next update will be finished.

When you start it with Desura, Desura should notify you there's a patch available.

That's good to hear :). You can request an invite for one of the next playtester groups on olvand.com .

Depends on what you mean by a lot :). I've got over 300 names right now, but that number will get smaller and smaller as I increase the tester group size.

Yes, Desura/IndieDB says so, but it is actually in a closed pre-alpha testing phase. You can sign up to be a tester on olvand.com.

Pubs will be blueprints (like all houses), roads can be crafted directly from softstone :)

Both jukeboxes (that's what you mean, right?) and darts are wonderful ideas, although if I include something like darts, I'll probably make it a little different from the real game - I want all the minigames to be unique.

For the spawn places - I have some special ideas for that, but more about that later :).

Yeah, these achievements are almost impossible to get at the moment, I may remove them someday. I'd say your best chance is inviting friends.

About the persistent characters: hmmm, that would have quite a lot of implications for how you play the game, so I need to give it some thought. Interesting, though.

Good to see I can even create the impression I've got progress when I haven't touched the project for a whole week :P. And congrats Cheesetale, you deserve it :).

By signing up for an invite on olvand.com. I invite new players in groups, to make sure the servers (which are run by volunteers) don't melt.

Thank you for your suggestion, but I have to admit I'm not sure if I understand it correctly; does 'mayoral changes' mean adding mayors of towns to the game? At the moment being a mayor is nothing more than being able to change the laws for towns you founded. How would that relate to IRC?

I think you might be right that giving the portal a bigger territory keeps the problem away longer, so I'm going to follow your advice if giving portals their own territory is really needed.

About the limited distance: enormous cities is not something I necessarily want to avoid, as long as I can make cities look varied. I am actually afraid the other thing will happen: 300 cities on every server with only 2-3 houses. But we'll see :)

Thanks for your comments, very interesting!

Thanks for your interest! Unfortunately, if I would say here that I put you in the next tester group, there are dozens of people who would want the same. I'm very sorry :(.

Not sure, actually, I haven't had any complaints ;). I think when 2-digit players tried to reset their accounts, the server got confused and did nothing. Anyway, like MartanZ said, it's fixed now.

Haha, building good bots would take months, if not years. However, I agree that the lack of people to play with is a bit problematic; I plan to add minigames which can also be played alone once I'm done with the city building stuff.

Haha, nice :). What Desura calls 'released' is actually the date on which the game was first available for download, but still nice.
