Thanks, Kamil, Crate and Raven - i appreciate your feedback. Sorry for being idle for these 1.5 weeks - was away and busy on my job.

 Regarding issues and suggestions - i have applied fixes for most issues you discovered. I will send additional notification when they all will be fixed.

Regarding suggestions - there will also be several changes to make gameplay more ballanced.

Currently working on:

- new monster creatures, new buildings, new objects
- updates to scenario. Finally it is going to be a well-formed map with NPCs and monsters, unlike it is now.
- AI for guards and city inhabitants
Regards,
Andrei

Hi, for 35 USD a year you cant have a server to your custom java game server with:

php, cgi, asp, tomcat, and more. You can load your server

If you want it, tell me I can help you with that.

just wanted to say that the project will stop for an unspecified period of time.

I am really depressed with what is hapenning now in Belarus. I really wished that me and my family's commitment to democracy and freedom will not interfere my job, my private life and this project in particular.

But things have changed - i've got problems on my day job because of my activities, my father has been assaulted today and is in hospital now..

I really wish i had some time to work on a project, but will certainly not in the next couple of months. I am planning to find a job far away from here, move to a quiet place and take care of my parents. No more games, sorry. Wish me luck folks.

I'm very, very sad to hear that!!

We here (Germany) have been following very closely what is going on in Belarus its in the news every day. Its very depressing but I do believe the whole world is watching the developments very carefully, you are not alone!

I wish you all the best for the future and hope you will soon find the leisure to continue with your game. It is very sad to see you go. Your project and commitment is an inspiration to me and a lot of people here.

The best of wishes to you and your parents and hoping to hear from you soon with good news!

Yes very sad news, I wish the best for you and your family. Here also in Canada, we hear about the situation in your country daily and for what i have heard, many governments, the OCDE and other international organisms are also watching it carefully. Best luck for the next days and hope to see you soon here after the happy ending.

Sorry to hear that! I wish you best of luck. May things turn out well in the end for you and your family. Techno is a great project and even if it's on hold now, i'm sure you'll be back working on it one day.

Take care,
