Update List

Post by Snaek » Fri Jun 24, 2016 8:27 pm

We started keeping regular records of update notes in 2012 and have since then amassed a rather long list, even in their abbreviated form. The scroll has become overwhelming. We've decided to archive the Updates log from previous years, leaving only the current year's worth of notes visible via the in game UPDATES command. We hope this will make it easier to check for new updates as well as revisit old updates to see how far we've come.
