Hey, guys. The following things are missing from Season Two as of the time of this posting (with thirty-five minutes 'til launch):

To be added ASAP:
Mounts - these will be added back in as the night wears on.
ScrapBots - this will be finished off and launched next week, with any luck.
Boss Monsters - as with ScrapBots, these will be sorted out this week.
Robots, GoBots and Jokers - these will be sorted out in the next few days.
Mutant abilities - next couple of days, since folks will be going on to this race sooner than Robots, GoBots and Jokers.
Homepage info (right now the home page is blank!) - next couple of days, before I start advertising.

To be added this month:
Dwellings.
Stamina-based PVP.
Improbable Labs.
Mount Accessories.
Monster Submission Hut.

Lower priority:
Cobblestone Cottage.
New Equipment.

So... when does the Island officially come back online? I see that as of 5:00 PM EST, I only get PHP errors when attempting to log in:

PHP Formatted Code
Warning: require_once(lib/local_config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/improbab/public_html/common.php on line 45

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'lib/local_config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /home/improbab/public_html/common.php on line 45

I get the same error message.

I guess I COULD do some housekeeping instead of playing the game.

Nah.

So where's the link to the forums on the new Improabble Island? I don't see it anywhere. I always found it handy.

Also, what's the link to get to the season one server? So I can resync with my clan members?

Edit: Oh, and why is there no longer the option to buy a permanent account in the Hunter's Lodge? Or is that the one thing that carries over from Season 1? I do try to log on at least once a week, but sometimes I get really busy. I'd hate to lose my account if I got busy for a month.

Also, it seems that apostrophes are messed up in descriptions (replaced with ?):
At your next step, a donkey limps out from behind a bush, wobbling on legs made out of steel, wood and what looks like rubber. Normally you would be agog at such a sight, but your stay on the island has beaten your reasoning faculties into a whimpering heap that doesn?t even try anymore.

There were a few other monster descriptions that looked odd due to this.

Is that consistent across all of the monster descriptions with apostrophes, or just some of them?

(I remember having to tweak some of the monster descriptions because their authors had written them in a word processor which changed ' to "ultra-fancy-curly ' that doesn't work in anything but the word processor")

WHERE IS ELIAS?

For some of us, he's a wise teacher and a close friend.

I saw that when I looked. Look again.

I still don't see it. I know I grabbed the permanent account back in season 1, so I thought maybe it just carried over.

It might just be some of them in that case, I know another one that had ? all over it was the passive-aggressive co-worker.

Oh, and I remembered the url for Season One - http://seasonone.improbableisland.com/ . Perhaps there should be an easy-to-find link somewhere, I forget where it was originally mentioned.

Also, why can't I edit posts in here after a certain amount of time? Are they only editable until they are viewed?

@Sessine: I've had a better idea. YOU can rebuild Elias, and tie him in to the new IItems system so he gives out different things. I'll open up the Labs soon and post some coding tutorials.

Same goes for the ņ symbol in the Piņata monster description.

The Cig prices have just been put back to how they normally were - I offered more cigs for a buck a couple of times when I was really skint and needed the cash. They were originally seven for 100dp's.

Requisition - yes, that has been made more expensive, because monsters pay out far less Req now. Trying to get a handle on inflation, here, so we don't end up with newbies walking around with millions of Req like in S1.

Ah, so it *was* 7, I couldn't remember. And yeah, inflation should be easier to keep under control now that eBoy is here to save the day, and I don't really need all that much Req by the time I hit level 15. I mostly spend all my money on healing or equipment.
