Thanks to everyone who endured the buggy gameplay today and helped me find new bugs. Things are much more stable now. The server will remain open and hopefully if things remain stable I will add stats soon.

Inter-server group chat (IGROUP) added. With it, you can chat to people on our other server

Commands:
/joinigroup
/leaveigroup
/i message
/igroupinfo

This is in addition to the normal group chat (/joingroup /leavegroup /g /groupinfo)

Update:
The server now supports invisible objects.

Maps previously converted will have to be reconverted but this should be the last time that is needed.

The server is looking really stable, I'm very pleased with it. There will be a small delay for the rest of the features due to commitments I have in real life. This is why the last few days of development have been relatively sluggish as well. But once they are resolved (in a week) the previous fast pace of development will restart.

Since we are probably the least well-known of the "ND replacement servers" I urge all ND members to ensure that their clanmates and friends are at least aware that this server exists, while it's still easy to talk with them. We started late (less than two weeks ago: the day ND's closure was officially announced) but are at comparable levels of progress to servers that have been in development for 4x as long. But this potential will go nowhere if we have no players. I realise I'm partly to blame for not finishing everything before opening the server but I have the feeling the vast majority of the DD/DM players from ND don't even know about us. We will see what happens when ND closes, I guess.

Lastly, it's not very important, but you can now rename your account (see the website's Tools section).

/setworld and /getworld added. Unlike some other servers /setworld isn't restricted to just 0-100 or numbers at all. For example you can type /setworld strawberries or something totally secret so no one else can join your or your clan's secret world.

- Chats are now separated. To send a global message use /global. To save any confusion, /g (group chat) has been renamed to /c.
- Anti lag for velocities

Still working on fixing other bugs and adding more maps
