Queosia 6.5

As we prepare for the next "big version" of Queosia (7.0), many small fixes and enhancements were needed. These are all part of the current 6.5 engine.

Major changes include:

  1. "At war" status now remains active when you restart a level. Previously, restarting the level caused this status to terminate immediately.
  2. Another change to the "At war" status is that it gets terminated when you level up. Previously, the status remained, and you were at war with a non-existing country, until that country levelled up.
  3. To prevent countries from "freezing", that is: all actions stopping, people who are constantly logged in, are now automatically logged out after 2 days, and need to log back in.
  4. If the end of the timelimit is approaching, a warning appears, so you can prepare for the next level. This information has always been available ("Start of level" date under "Level" menu), but we feel this will remind more people to get ready before the time is up.
  5. As gameplay in the 1/A group is different from the gameplay in the 4 lower levels, a welcome message is sent to everyone who reaches the 1/A group. This points out the major differences, and directs everyone to the 1/A help, which has all the information you need to get started in the most exciting group of the game! :)
Good luck!
