Some random thoughts

First, about the update. We were thinking to release it this past Friday, but it has been delayed a little bit for the following reasons:
1. The Mac version maintainer is away until 26th, so releasing the update meant that the Mac users can't play for a while.
2. If there were any problems we might not have been able to atend to them because of the Christmas (we, the developers, are humans too).
3. We can do more tests and add more stuff at once (for example the new spawns were not ready yet, but now they are).
We really hope that we can get the update going by the end of the year.

Second, I finally got started with writting an article about the MMO economies. I promised this article a while ago, in the last part of the Eternal Lands Postmortem series.
The first part should be ready in early January, so expect to see it on Devmaster.net in month or less.

Finally, on totally unrelated note, I bought the game Galactic Civilizations 2, Dread Lords.
It is a great game, sort of like what MOO 3 should have been. My only complaint is that you don't have any control of your ships during the combat, something MOO 1&2 had. Given the wide variety of weapons and ship defenses it is very important to optimize the way your ships attack, and the computer doesn't seem to do a very good job at it. But it's a great game nonetheless, and if you enjoyed MOO 1&2 but hated MOO 3, you should give this game a try.
