Newtown Shops

Chest shop in red black and white color scheme
CastIronDuck Tool & Die

In our ongoing quest to bring you new ways to play with the toys we already have, Solly and I spent some time Thursday night configuring Newtown to have shop plots. If enough people take advantage of these plots, we’ll have an actual shopping district. Here’s how it works:

  • Resident plots may not be used for shops.
  • Residents and non-residents may claim an embassy plot set up for the purpose of having a shop. There are signs labeling these plots and explaining how to claim.
  • Shop plots cost $20,000 to claim and $10/calendar day in automatically deducted rent. The cost of rent is subject to later increases for balance purposes.

If all the currently available shop plots get used up, we’ll make more.

As always, you can set up chest shops anywhere, including at your own town.

Thanks for the memories

We’ve had a few crashes lately due to running out of memory. Accordingly we have purchased a service upgrade from 4G of ram to 5G, for an additional $3/month minus a 10% recurring discount for a total of $2.70.

The total cost of running VoidTree is now $29.37/month.

If the server ever reboots out from under you, please post in #reports on Discord. Your report will help us track down any error messages.

Voting for VoidTree

Since we added in the option to vote last week, we’ve had various issues with it not working while offline, rewards not working, etc.

I am happy to announce that voting for VoidTree has been tested and works on all 4 links, regardless of whether you’re actually online while you vote. You can open your rewards packages with /openpackage.

Milestone

Today we exit alpha and enter closed beta. Most players won’t notice much in the way of changes. We’ll be working on balance and polishing our code. As always, tell us on Discord if you’re having any issues.

Supporting VoidTree

I have been reliably informed that “donation” has a very specific meaning to the IRS. As we do not want to taunt happy fun tax authorities, “Donating” has been changed to “Supporting VoidTree.”

Cheers!
