Work on H.T.O. 2.0 has been resumed! Expect a release date soon! Extended testing and work is being carried out.
This is version 1.3, it was my original concept for Hal's Traders Back in August 2012, if you are a first timer and don't want a significant challenge then this may be the version for you, though I strongly recommend either the Pure Edition or better yet, the new Master edition coming April 2013.
