Hi! I've been working on Colony v6.0 and we're doing some testing and technical things now. It should be out really soon. Anyway, here are the notes:

Anti-Hacking
New features are being added into 6.0 to make it harder for hackers. Using more server-side code so that it's not easy to breach, and also you will automatically be de-synced from a hacker if the game thinks that he is hacking.

Friends List
Added a friend list feature. You can add friends by user name, so you can see whenever they come online, chat with them directly whether you are in a game or in the lobby, and also you can block users.

Balance Changes
Influence Cap raised to 200.
Prides: Now cost 40 Influence, up from 35.
Gladiator: Price reduced. Weapon range and damage increased slightly.
Sakata Spider: Price slightly reduced. Range, speed and HP slightly increased.
Meditec: Now takes slightly few seconds to deploy.

New In-Game Commands

/add [username]
Adds that player to your friends list.

/remove [username]
Removes that player from your friends list.

/friendlist
Displays a list of all your added friends, and shows whether they are online, offline, or blocked.

/block [username]
Block that player from sending you private messages.

/unblock [username]
Unblock the player.

/w [username] [message]
Sends a private message to the user. He/she has to be on your friend list for that to work.

Note: The usernames in all friend list commands are case-sensitive.

That's all for now :) I'm still trying to figure out a way to create a kind of spectator mode. No promises though!

Ahh, interesting Krin.

The friends list is a good idea, as has been suggested quite often.

New features are being added into 6.0 to make it harder for hackers. Using more server-side code so that it's not easy to breach, and also you will automatically be de-synced from a hacker if the game thinks that he is hacking.

That's also good to hear.
Influence Cap raised to 200.

Yes. I like that.

Well, the spectator thing should be good. Nice to watch players play and learn their strategies. =)

Ouch, and Sir, please lessen the upgrades cost bank - treasury A BIT, and the upgrade length VERY MUCH lol, everyone makes 2 banks instead of one treasury, and i think thats strange.

Also, why is the upgrade length of outpos/forge tier 1 - tier 2 much longer than from tier 2 - tier 3? D: Late game is bigger than early game, but hell, i havent calculated everything now. I havent expected 6.0 to come so early! Great work Sir! :DDD

and also you will automatically be de-synced from a hacker if the game thinks that he is hacking.


Make sure that the game KNOWS he's hacking, and not think.

This is great Krin. Now I know what will be the new updates. Thanks.
