With the registration system complete and our first patch released, Hamled is now working on getting user-submitted flags and sails working again and on restoring the transfer system so we can resume processing transfers between Antigua and Roberts. After that's done he will look into the best way to bring the forums back online.
While Hamled is taking care of that, Fodderboy and I are moving forward with the cannon changes described in recent dev logs. We are also planning to release some new items (including some new ships!) in early December. We'll have more information about what you can expect in the new builds soon, stay tuned!
