We had another important upgrade to our site today, with all of our application servers receiving a lot of work. We have improved the loading times of the site by over 2,000% by optimising our php servers to full work how we need them to. We still have a lot more work happening on the site, which you will really start to notice happening soon. We are upgrading the RAM on all of our servers with 1GB or less of RAM. We have spent over $12,000 on RAM upgrades this week to make sure each server will, from Friday, have 4GB of RAM to work with. This will also help the site run a lot better, allowing us to cache a lot more data. Then from next week, all of our flash games are moving to their own network so that they can be optimised fully to load a lot quicker and to remove their lagging of our php servers. Thank you for your patience for the last few weeks, and for all of those who have purchased account upgrades, as they have helped to fund a lot of this.

SLATER PARK has received a much needed makeover. As with the server upgrades around the site, we treated Laimay to a new $250 drawing tablet for her artwork on the site. Shes had the same tablet for 3 years, since we started the site and really needed one that still worked! This map is the first piece of artwork shes used it for..

We can now officially tell you the Maintenance is now complete. As far as we know, the sites upgrade was a success and we are now finished. There is still a small possibility of some more problems, but these are unlikely. We would like to thank you all for your patience over the past two weeks, you should start to see the benefits of the upgrade from now on.

The Election results are in. The Snobbish Party has won , receiving 76% of the vote. Already in power, they have decided that they will declare war on Queen Eleka. This means that the war will start within the next couple of days! Keep checking the news for more updates.

We are not expecting any more major problems over the next few days and if the site manages to stay up all weekend, it will mean that the maintenance is complete.

Thank you all for your patience while we were performing important Maintenance. We experienced a lot of problems when our new system went into production and it has taken us all weekend to fix. We are not certain that all problems are fixed, but there is a team of experts all working with me on the work and at least one of us is avaliable 24/7 so any new problems that do appear should be fixed as quickly as we can. It will most likely take until the end of the week for us to get everything finished.

This Huthiq likes it's gothic new look!


We have hidden a Mommi Avatar for you to find and also released the default Lati avatar.


Five new Voodoo Dolls are restocking too...

The mutant, zombie and prison versions of the Kidlet have been released.


This is just a quick update you let you know about Maintenance we are currently having. For the past week, our new servers were being set up and installed. It will be another 1-3 days and then the site will have up to 24 hours of downtime. It could just be 4-6 hours, but we are allowing up to 24 hours for the site to be closed. This is to ensure it is tested and working properly. This maintenance will be very successful for us to put an end to the lag we have been experiencing recently and will allow for the war to start right away. It was delayed by two weeks because we were worried that the site would be totally unplayable with the large numbers of people that will be taking part. We will give you more news about the maintenance as soon as we have any.

The mutant, zombie and prison Lati are also now avaliable.

Minipet Island Land War - Part 3

The King is dead! Long live the new King!

We regret to inform you that our beloved King, the renowned Baspinar XII has perished. The castle was in mourning last night after genetic testing was completed by the Enpiah DNA laboratory proving that the remains that people have been fishing out of the Maradan river did in fact belong to our missing King Baspinar XII and not his great great multi-great grandfather Baspinar I as was formerly believed.

News has reached us that the new King, Baspinar XIII was immediately crowned during the night in an emergency ceremony at the castle. Not wanting to delay in these worrying times the normal public ceremonies and celebrations were set aside in order that Marada should once again have a King to protect us. As I'm sure every Maradan is aware, Baspinar XIII is the (rather unfortunately uglier) identical twin brother of our former handsome king the late Baspinar XII. Born just nineteen seconds later than his brother, he was natuarally next in line for the throne.

A proclamation has been issued this morning from our new King:

My fellow Maradans, I bring to you this morning the sad news of my brother's death. He is believed to have met his end at the hands of evil minions of the false Queen Eleka. This dreadful witch is sure to bring nothing but harm to our peaceful kingdom, and we do not recognise any claim by her to the Southern lands!

The question now remains as to what shall be done about this threat to Marada. As I believe in modern methods, and fairness for all our subjects, I have decided that the question of action against this traitorous interloper should be handled by the Maradan parliament rather than by myself. All Maradans are therefore called immediately to vote at the castle in a special referendum on the subject of war!

You can now vote in the Election inside the castle for what should happen next.

NEW WORLD
With Queen Eleka's return and the strange disappearance of King Baspinar, it was possible for Queen Eleka's Castle to reopen. Its really deserted right now, but as the Queen gets more settled, I'm sure more will be happening there...


We would like to thank everyone for their patience over the past couple of weeks while we completed very important Site Maintenance. The majority of the maintenance has been completed, so we shouldn't have any major downtime or errors again for a while. We hope you can now notice the improvements around the site, in terms of speed and bugs being fixed.

As the Plot/War event will begin soon, we thought it was time to release the new Layout for the whole event. The event is scheduled to last until the end of March - beginning of April and the war will involve new quests, restocking and of course, the new Battle Arena that will be out soon.

There will be another Email Newsletter sent over the next few weeks to let everyone know about the plot. Each newsletter will have a special code where you can collect free Account Upgrade credit and MP from the Vault!
