Legacy is 18 years old now so seems like as good a time as any to do a general update on the state of things. It's been many years since I did so there is quite a bit to catch up on I guess. I'll start with the most relevant things.

Legacy is still, after 18 years, running at a profit. It only costs about $1,200 USD per year to run the server so it's not a major expense. Even if it didn't generate any revenue though I'd keep it running regardless as I've grown quite attached to it. I see we still had 230 players login last week so that's nice to see. Thanks to everyone who still plays and a special thanks to all the volunteers who keep it running.

Hunted Cow Games recently got a re-brand to orange. It's also still running at a profit with the majority of our revenue now coming from Operation: New Earth and Warhammer: Chaos and Conquest. We now have about 40 employees (mostly artists) and we're currently hiring a couple of Junior Unity Developers. Almost everybody is working on our 3rd game in the build and battle series which is essentially a re-skin under a new (but still secret) intellectual property.

In the company I now head up the programmers as the CTO. Day to day I'm working on the PHP based server-side for the games, keeping the older 2 running while adding features for our newest project.

My free time is split between family stuff, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (that I started about 4.5 years ago) and working on a personal game project called Star Vortex that is a single player ARPG I'm making in Unity, mostly in the evenings and week-ends (https://zorguk.itch.io/star-vortex). There are no deadlines on this project, it'll be finished whenever it is finished.

Beyond that everything is going fine. My family is doing well and my daughter turned 3 years old in April. Hope you all have a good anniversary!

That's the anniversary gift boxes up for Legacy's 18th birthday! I've been speaking to the your mother and I think it's time you moved out and got your own place. But hey, at least you're old enough to drink now... in the UK anyway.

You can also buy 'Twisted Tea' in Joe's Merchandise to celebrate and there is a Toolbox in the gift box this year. Thanks to faelust for making all the artwork so I didn't have to.

The Voluntary Devs and Voluntary Helpers have made the difficult decision to temporarily freeze the Warfare system in order to address excessive lag we've been observing the past 12 hours. The lag has been identified as an issue that is beyond the control of the Voluntary helpers and Voluntary Devs, and we have informed Zorg to look into the matter.

We understand that the Warfare system is a popular and important feature for many players, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we believe that taking the time to properly address the lag issue will ultimately lead to a better overall experience for all players. During this time no side shall gain any metal therefore no one gains or loses points during the downtime. The map will essentially be frozen.

We are hopeful that Zorg will be able to quickly isolate the cause of the lag and push out a fix. In the meantime, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work to improve the system. We will continue to keep everyone updated on the progress of the fix and will work as quickly as possible to bring the Warfare system back online.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
