Many people have said the game is dying or is dead or have asked if that is the case.
I have spoken to the games developer and as it stands there are no updates planned in the near or far future. The game WILL stay up and running and be maintained as it currently is but do not expect any further updates. He didn't say there will NEVER be any more out right but definitely don't expect there to be any.
All I can suggest is to keep playing as you normally have been. As stated above the game will remain up and running. There is still plenty of open land on map 66 and in the south half of map 68.
There are no plans for a wheneverbit this year. Sim did not say there wouldn't be one out right it is still possible that there could be one just DO NOT expect there to be one.
Autocap has been spotted. For those who don't know. Autocap is a bot that Sim uses to update the world map. It takes a long time to do but eventually we should get a world map update.
World map is updated. Although sadly it bugged out for map 68 so that is still not shown.
Do not know if this is going to be fixed. Might have to wait till next run.
