Version 5 Progress Update

Credit Shop

Some weeks back I posted my intentions for Street Crime. I am conscious that it’s now been a month or so since this update and I haven’t posted any further progress reports. So here’s what I have been up to;

  • I have collated information from various sources and found new bugs with the help of many of you (you know who you are, and will get a full mention in the credits of the new version).
  • I have moved the game to new servers.
  • Put the foundations in for better more robust development of the game going forward.
  • I have squashed a number of bugs (these are currently in testing)
  • And I am redeveloping several areas of the game. They are getting a medium sized overhaul and it will change the dynamic of the game. I am excited about this.

The question everyone wants to know is whether or not the game will be reset when the work is complete. The answer, yes. Let me clarify on a few things that will happen when the reset happens;

  • The game will be entirely reset.
  • Each player will need to sign up with a new account
  • If your email has/was used on a previous account, a lookup against memberships/credits/some credit items will be made and these items will be returned to you.
  • Stricter rules around duping will be implemented
  • Assets will be slowly released into the community

I expect to make a new code release to the game shortly. However, I do not have a date for the proposed reset, just yet.

I’ll be sure to try and post more regular updates in the future.
