Auction System: We're in the process of moving auctions from a forum platform to an in-game platform. This means that players will be able to see what properties are available for auction, place a marker on their map to find them, and be able to view them in-game and place a bid without tabbing out or visiting the forums. The process is intended to be automatic, so when you win, the property is yours. This is a big step up from how we handle it right now (it's purely manual, and very work intensive) and should yield better accessibility for all players.
Tester Recruitment: If you're interested in joining our staff team, then keep an eye out for tester recruitment opening next month. As a reminder: you can keep track of this recruitment thread if you intend to apply when they're open. This thread will be updated when they're open.
Custom skins/objects/mapping: We're always open to adding custom skins and objects, especially now that we have the streamlined system that does not require a server restart. If you have something that you'd like to see on the server (and you made it, or have the author's permission) then you can send it over to Davis. Similarly, if you're interested in joining our server's modding/mapping teams, see here.
Verified Discussions: This is a reminder to check out the Verified Discussions forum and, if you're interested in contributing there, be sure to read the announcement about it. This continues to be a more productive area to generate discussions with the community.
Contact: My inbox is always open for queries and comments. If you want to strike up a conversation with me about something that concerns you, or want to flag my attention to a discussion that could use input or management's opinion, feel free to reach out to me and let me know. I try to respond to every message that I receive despite the amount that I get on a daily basis. Forum PM (on these boards) is always the best way to get in touch with me and guarantee that I see your message. Please do not rely on Discord as a means of getting in touch with me directly.
Welcome back to the following tester who will be reinstating into the tester team:
Congratulations and I look forward to seeing you around the server and the forums! Please contact Bennemus to take the next step and be welcomed back into the team. He is the point of contact for the Tester Team as your Head of Testers.
Thanks for reading,
