=68 Landrush Schedule

landrushThe new =68 map is created and ready to go!  Everyone can access it, regardless of level, via the telepad hidden away at the southwest of Root.

This map is more build-focused, and as such does not spawn mobs and has a totally flat terrain.

While everyone can view the map now, no one can build until their Landrush phase opens up.  If you try to place before your Landrush slot opens, you'll get a countdown of exact time remaining.  Here is the schedule for landrush:

  • 1/6 - Ultimate Landrush ($500+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/7 - Super Landrush  ($200+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/8 - Normal Landrush  ($70+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/9 - Open to All

Account Security Tips

It's important to keep your 8BitMMO account safe.  Lately, some 8BitMMO accounts have been targeted for theft.  Please take the following steps to ensure the safety of your account:

  1. Be sure you have a good password set.  Simple passwords can be easily guessed and thereby hacked, so it's good to change your password if it is weak.
  2. Be sure you have an e-mail set.  If your account is compromised, it can only be saved by having an e-mail associated with it.
  3. Never give your password to anyone.
  4. Avoid modifications that contain executable code.  Several instances of "trainer" programs have captured account passwords unbeknownst to their users.  No "trainer" or "exploit" programs can give you free plat.

The Implausible Zone

Over the weekend I participated in the LD34 gamejam.  I wrote and made some art for a short Comedy/Adventure game, which was produced in roughly two days.  It's pretty rough, but people at the jam site seemed to think it was funny, so hopefully you will too 🙂

March of Industry – Now on Android

I've been meaning to get March of Industry running on mobile for a long while now, and so I've been spending a little bit of time here and there to make it happen.  It's finally ready to share, so you can now play it on your Android phones & tablets (I don't have an iPhone, so no iOS version.  Sorry.)

The mobile version is the same as the PC version, but with touch controls.  It even uses the same account system as PC version, so your save files will automatically sync between mobile and PC. It fully supports blueprint modding, translations, and GIF captures also.

I am giving the Android version out free to anyone who bought either the PC MarchOfIndustry.com (Stripe) or Steam copies of the game.  (This includes Steam codes given out as Novemberbit rewards).   Just go to this page to download the APK.

And if you didn't, then FYI it's unreasonably cheap in Google Play.  😛

Vote for your Exclusive Novemberbit Hat

Thanks to everyone who joined for the hatstream today.  We made SEVEN potential NovemberBit hats.

The Novemberbit reward page has been updated with a voting system.  If you've backed $49+, you can vote for the official Novemberbit Exclusive Reward Hat.  The winning hat will only be available to the $49+ backers.

The hats that don't win will either be discarded, made available for public purchase, or added to my secret hat stockpile.

HatStream2015VoteAlso, wild grass has been fixed so that it gives the correct number of wild grasses.  If you previously claimed them, you can reclaim to get your additional +1 wild grass.
