"Made the HUD_MapRandomizer actually random"

Thank you, I found this troubling as the IP route was always the same.

"Tuned the World Map a little bit, to be easiear to see the names of the target/fav locations"

Yea, I had trouble with this as I always started the game off doing a couple missions until I got enough credits for MapRandomizer so I could bookmark all the links in InterNIC, but when fav'ing InterNIC and Uplink ISS it was difficult.

Now I can start playing the game again as hopefully I can hack the banks again :D

Aaaaactually... It seems that the banks are not fixed >_< A user reported the bug again, so back-up your user file (.usr file inside the users folder) before trying to steal money!

Pleasant surprise of an update! Really excited to see this go gold soon. Just recently nominated Uplink too for Test of Time award, such a great game still made even better with this mod.

Awesome dude! Btw is there any reason this version is much smaller than previous?

Yeah, I forgot to delete some sound working resources from the previous version's package -_-
They don't affect the mod in any way, though.

Hello! I have a question... In Vanilla Uplink, you were able to upload all your software to a server somewhere out there in the world and if one was arrested, you could create a new user and get back into that machine and retrieve your software. That doesn't seem to happen in UplinkOS, or at least it didn't happen to me. With the new user created, the system I saved my stuff to never reappeared.

Hey Leondal,
That actually sounds more like a bug in vanilla. If you get arrested (disavowed), it's game over and once you create a new user, the world gets regenerated (hence, not being able to find the server in question).
If you're actually referring to destroying your gateway to escape the police and not able to find the server after that, than yes, it is a bug.
Can you please confirm about your situation?
Cheers!

Well fooey... That was a very handy bug then. It's been a long time since I did the trick, so maybe I did use the detonator and go retrieve my software afterward; I thought I just tucked my software away and went back to get it later.

Nothing to see here, move along... These aren't the droids you're looking for!
