Welcome to those users who have registered an account. As soon as the project was officially announced on my Python blog, there was a large amount of user registrations. Please feel free to use these forums to discuss anything about how you would like the game to mature, and what you would like to see the game have in particular.

Currently, it is not playable, but as said in the previous thread, the backend data models are there, all I need to do is tie everything together. I hope to spend some time later this week doing this.

Also, feel free to comment on the overall look and feel of the website. It currently uses jQuery UI, and some bootstrap. The bootstrap is only used for the layouts, everything else is jQueryUI.

It's coming along

I've got some good news today.

I have added a few new features which you can test out and let me know what you think. This is more of letting you see what the backend has and uses, and is not what the final product will be.

Hosts you click in the auto-completing address bar will now resolve to an IP address and bring you to it's page. This page is here for your viewing pleasure of what's exactly available in the backend. Once the game is playable and live, this page will no longer exist.

Here's a sample URL:


Almost at a playable state

After over a month, it is getting so close to being playable. Unfortunately it has taken so long as I have been very busy with another project, which is making me my income. Don't worry though, I will not abandon the development of this game. I really want to see it succeed.

So, when you sign-in now, and click "Play", you should receive a message that you were given a new host of your own. This is the first step into making it playable, is giving the players their initial hosts to play around with. The hosts are not booted when you get them, but feel free to the press the link to start her up. I made sure that it will be bootable right away.

Once it is booted, you will see a new set of tools on the left pane to manage the host itself. This has been built for many many weeks now, but since you never had your own host, it never displayed these completed tools.

Something else you may notice in the Tools, is "Running Tasks". This is currently fully operational, and has been tested for file/log deletions, and file download/upload among hosts. Things you do to your own host will occur instantly and doesn't use the Tasks. Actions performed using the "future" tools will use the Tasks. Currently there is no limit on the amount of tasks, but this will change in the future once a good amount is known, or I develop some sort of upgrade to enable larger amounts of tasks.

Feel free to talk in the forums and try out the user permissions stuff for the time being. Let me know if you any questions/concerns or suggestions. Bug reports would be very helpful too.
