    I got a message when I logged into SmallWorlds today..

    "SmallWorlds will be taken offline Monday 21th October @ 2pm PDT
    The site could be down for up to 8 hours while we upgrade to the next beta release."

    SmallWorlds is scheduled to close in less than 15 minutes, there's a thread in the Forums here. It's Monday the 20th though.. haha

    Oh wow. Guess I have to wait until tomorrow to go to Spacies @_@

    Must be a big upgrade, the last time they did a new release it was a 4 hour outage

    Smallworlds is finally back, woot! Looks like they have added some cool stuff, and when you get a chance, stop by Island Bar and Mission! LOL, just had to add that!

    ADDED 20 MINUTES LATER: I'm really not liking the new Smallworlds. Stuff costs way more now, food that used to be 3 tokens costs 50! And a popular mission only gives out 20 tokens. AND each mission you CAN ONLY PLAY ONCE A WEEK! I dont know about this...

    VIP monthly membership AND an item shop? Sounds a lot like subscriptions/crowns, huh?

    I think the mission once a week thing is a bug, I ran into Tony Fendal in there and he doesnt think thats correct.

    Also, it looks like the missions were reset with the new build, which is why it is paying so low

    Thanks for posting the info. I have been having issues and can not log in to SW since the most recent build.

    Just learned my log in issue is related to hotmail accounts.

    Well, no. We still have all our stuff, but prices on everything have gone up. You now see food that costed 3 tokens now costs 50, and rooms costs more to buy.

    Yes but they gave us 10 times the tokens we had, so the prices aren't as whacked as you think

    They announced on their forums that when the reset happens nobody will lose their stuff by the way. To lazy to go get the link :rotfl:

    They are cutting us back to level 20 but you keep your rooms and items

    Your friends ;) may want to change to another email like Yahoo or Gmail to get them back in business. Once they establish a new a mail account, click the change email link, instead of resend verification.

    Oh btw, sorry to say this but...

    The once a week thing is not a bug. I just saw Tony again tonight, and he just wasn't aware of the change as of yesterday.

    This is the way it is working now >_<

    You can only do a mission once a week
