We made them more accessible to tablets and phones. It's a forum system known as nodebb and it's pretty slick. It also had built in realtime updates to posts and a chat system. So a bit more responsive and nice to look at than SMF which is what the original is. We do plan on replacing those forum section button/logos with something more unique when Hex has the time to design them.
PS - Since we lost all former content we didn't see much harm in updating to something more responsive. Is it too phone app looking?

Not a fan of the new layout. Maybe it's just because I don't have a smartphone, but I find it seriously clunky to navigate and I can't imagine myself regularly checking this version for updates like I did the last.
Our goal, whether through REDSHIFT or on our own, will be to release an open-source version of our Evennia Engine, broken down into modules so that anyone looking to develop their own games in Evennia will be able to use any (or all) of the game systems that we’ve created. We believe, pretty strongly, that we’ve developed some of the best RPI-like systems ever – between advanced movement, stealth, position, object manipulation, roleplaying tools, combat, AI, somatic/status effects, GUI, in-game communications, skillgain progression, DOME, and more. We want those systems, ultimately, to be fine-tuned, packaged neatly, and available to anyone with the hunger for making a game of their own.
Just wanted to say that what you guys and the evennia team are doing is awesome. Open sourcing work that you've invested so much time and money into can't have been easy and I really appreciate it.
For navigating the forums if you go to the top you can click the unread button or the recent button which will show you all newly updated threads. It's a little different than skimming by sub-forum but it's pretty intuitive because it shows thread name + subforum. As for open sourcing work we will be doing that but there will always been some code which was specifically tailored to PRS that we'll keep for ourselves. Likely this wouldn't be of interest to anything but a scifi space game and thus not really great for modular open source because of how niche it is.
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

qwerty: ask jcarter. I think he's giving it away

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
