Hi all -[/font]

The largest change in this release, that most of you won't care about, is that we completely rewrote our command system. We can now amend access rights for any of our commands, add exceptions as we like, and measure their usage far more efficiently. The system is fully tested and documented, like most of our code.

Other changes in this release include:


  • FEATURE: JavaScript commands are now powered by an entirely new backend.
  • FEATURE: Participation in any fighting game on our new infrastructure will now share statistics with you.
  • FEATURE: Nuwani now has the ability to connect to Discord! We're currently testing its reliability.
  • FEATURE: Mentioning @Nuwani on Discord will now award you with.. a wee┬átoken of appreciation.
  • FEATURE: An experimental "/scanall" command has been implemented, to show status for all players.
  • FEATURE: Fights created through "/match" can now give participants any number of lives.
  • FEATURE: Many fighting games have been converted to be powered by our JavaScript infrastructure.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Access rights for all┬ácommands can now be amended using "/lvp access".
  • IMPROVEMENT: See available benefits on the server through the new "/benefits" command.
  • IMPROVEMENT: A "/discord" command has been added to show you how to join our server.
  • IMPROVEMENT: It's now possible for the "/fancy" command to turn you in to a shark.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Various new scrambled words have been added to our inventory.
  • FIX: Using match shorthand commands such as "/sniper" will now default to starting the match.
  • FIX: Free games will now have a more concise announcement message on the server.
  • FIX: Awarding negative bounties will now give a more descriptive error message.
  • FIX: Continuous games will now let you know when other players join or leave the game.
  • FIX: Crushing vehicles will now award you a larger sum of money, more in line with our actual economy.
  • FIX: Various vehicles cannot be saved as house vehicles anymore, through a block list.
  • FIX: The "/whois" and "/whereis" commands have been restricted to permanent administrators.
  • FIX: An experimental fix for the desync that happens when killing someone with a knife is included.
  • FIX: Various new benefits for VIPs have been listed in the "/vip" command.
  • FIX: The "/guide" command won't let you know about "/weapons" anymore, which is now freely available.
  • MISC: We're experimenting with having the ability to watch any┬áminigame, e.g. "/haystack watch".
  • MISC: All our commands now have descriptions, allowing for automation of "/commands" & co.
  • MISC: A series of clean-ups have kicked our Playground feature up to standards┬áagain.
