This crept up on us and we almost forgot about it. Today is exactly 6 years since we released Alien Assault Traders Version 0.10 on August 4th, 2003.

It's kind of amazing to think we have been running a server with the game and developing it for over 6 years. I downloaded the 0.10 version yesterday to see what we had released. It has been so long I had forgotten. Man, it was a jumbled mess of coding. :) The entire download is 2.4 meg and the latest release is over 7 times larger. It really is something to see how much work has been put into the game over the last 6 years. If you would like to compare please download 0.10 and check it out. If you are a PHP programmer don't laugh too much. ;)

We would like to thank all of the players who have stuck with us over the years and especially those who have donated to keep things up and running. Some of you have been with us for years and we appreciate it.

Thank you all and we hope to keep giving you more years of enjoyment.

Thanks from Tarnus and Panama!

Congratulations! It's a good game in which you've invested so much time.

Congrats, PJ and Tarnus.
I think I came on board with .11 or .12, so I have seen a lot of improvements.
Those early days took a little bet of fiddling to get things to work. I remember dialing into Max's computer in the states to try and get things working for him. No mean feat for a Kiwi bloke from downunder. :)

This new code is great, much easier to install and for admin's a lot easier to see what is happening within the game.

Now would be a nice time for some of our 'graphic designer' players to come up with some new ship images. :D :D

Well done team.

cheers

Thanks :D

And YES!!!!

We would love to have a good graphic designer create new graphics all the way around for the game. :) We need to face lift in that area. :)

I know some online games have had people create their graphics for free. It would be great if that could happen here as we really don't have the funds to hire someone. Sigh...
