This week was very strenuous. After working for months with the developers of SFML, we finally fixed the long dreaded client freeze! Finally fixing the client freezes was exciting... but I wanted to add more (of course), so I added a lot more items, objects, and features.

The new world is 4000x4000 (x4 the last world!), so there is now plenty of space to explore. Continents allow factions to claim areas of the map and dominate resources. The fresh world will allow newbies to join in and immediately start playing and exploring. If you have any troubles, talk in our newly formed "global" chat.
