Due to some players having problems with the player online time limit we have added a countdown timer at the bottom of every page in the footer. This is a real time countdown timer based upon how much time you have left for the day. If the game allows unlimited online time this timer will not be displayed. We will be removing the time left in the score box as it is not needed anymore.

One thing players need to remember is to ALWAYS use the LOGOUT link in the game. If you do not, the game will continue to deduct your online time until you time out. So you could lose up to 5 minutes of online time if you do not logout.

We have added another change for players who have run out of time. The game would count those players as being online even though they were out of time. The players could still take up a player slot. This kind of defeated the purpose of having an online time limit for freeing up space for other players.

Players who have run out of play time are no longer counted as being online. They will still show as being online on the Rankings page but they will not be counted in the total players online. This will allow other players into the game.

We have also removed all NPC players from the online total. If the Federation, Independent or Alliance players are being used they will no longer count in the online totals.

That's good. May I suggest making it so that you can access the message menu thing (screen directly after login) even if the game is full, just to chat, without the main menu link? If it's too much trouble, or would take up too much space, that's ok, but that would allow players to chat via messages and shoutbox. It may be silly, but that's half of what I like to use this game for.
