Guess who's back, back again, SMU's back, tell a friend
Ahh! Don't you smeel it? The great vacationing is upon us yet again! So what better way to enjoy that summer sun (or winter cool, for you Aussies and other hombres south)... than to scurry right back inside to the nearest PC and play some good ol' StompzCraft! And what a glorious time to be a part of our growing, reviving community! SO. Let's get started, with...
A congratulations! Meet Elimarand and Fredrow, a lovely builder/play-tester duo and our newest moderators! I have the upmost confidence these two will serve the community well with their amazing creativity and dedication. Come say hello!
- Building Materials make a stunning debut, as Sandstone tops our buying trend with over 1,700 units!
- Red Bricks reign as the best profit boon, swelling to over 4,400 UNITS. Good lord.
- Produce finally on an upward trend, with each shop reaching full quota!
- Meat and Lumber tick upwards!; Gems/Minerals in a surprising wane...
And boy what an update this is. As of now, all adminshop stock will be on a revolving reload. Every 12 hours, the stock for the shops will reset, giving folks more opportunities to buy & sell on a daily basis. As such, prices will be adjusted, but let's just say these markets are gonna be... booming. So long, repetitive mob-grinding! Hello sweet, sweet venture capitalism.
But do not fret, dear citizens! Our darling [Devmin] DiamondExplorer5 is underway with a video & text tutorial to explain all the complicated workings of the adminshops (these will be posted to the website); there should be an in-game tutorial as well, soon enough.
The long-awaited Pets shops are finally here! Head on down to the newly-renovated Farmer & Sons' Feed & Stock and check 'em all out!
EMERGENCY REMINDER: Player-owned shops are currently shut down at the moment due to an oversight when implementing the plug-in, causing latency and connection issues. [Dev] Abs0rbed is reworking the system from the ground-up; ETA is expected some time this weekend. We will be sure to keep you guys updated.
n.: a period of sustained increases in the prices of stocks, bonds or indexes.
As always, be sure to stayed tuned for next month's Economy Report for all the latest updates, notices and more. Heaven knows I will.
First off, a very special... and incredibly important update:
This is a graph of the voting sites we're currently connected to. If you look at that drop-off around September of last year... we were basically dead. Kaput. Done. No one was here. But now, nine months later... it's finally happening, guys. All of this work is finally paying off. We're coming back. Yeah, there was a slight drop, but we're way better off now than we were before. I know I've kept saying "great things are coming" and "we're working on it", but now... there it is. There's the proof.
And, my god... the things we got in store for you guys. I can't even begin to say all the things we got in the works. All of the plug-ins being updated, all of the features being added (one I'm sure [TechSupport] JesseWayne21 will be happy to explain), all of the reworking and rebuilding in-game going on right now... it's too much. Like, look at this:
This is Desert 2. It was just a buncha shoddy tents I threw together not too long ago... now look at it. This is only a smidgen- a crumb- of the stuff we got in the works. If I were you, I'd definitely stick around this summer/winter, because things are gonna get wild.
Ooo... y'all thought we forgot, huh? As we've stated a few SMUs (or posts in general... I forget) ago, we were gonna keep an eye on our towns and see how they develop; best examples will be guaranteed an Established Town Portal spot in the PortalHub @ Spawn. Well, that time has finally come...
Congratulations to Eagles Landing (mayor: [Helper] ST3V3P), Viridis City (mayor: randomness777) and Duke City (mayor: Ladyroguemelody)! Be sure to contact any available Admin, server builder, [Owner] Lemo or myself so we can get squared away with your new Established portal plots!
Speaking of new things, we also got a bunch of new towns to introduce! Say hello to Roanoke (mayor: KirinLight), Santos City (mayor: dawson667) and Puddletown (mayor: [Mod] Dinosmore)! I wish you all the best of luck in your new endeavors!

So I've already expressed what a pleasure it is to have this classy, sassy lady [Mod] Eli on our server, yes? Like yo, she's a great builder- wicked good. Puts my stuff to shame. And she does it all so fast, too! Built Desert 2, built all of the other BuildHub renovations, still building more of them and TONS of other things... and what better example to show her prowess than in her own residence, Eliestate.
Located on the edge of Duke City and skirting the Great StompzCraft Road, her house is a sight to behold for weary travellers' eyes. 'Tis a grand estate indeed... and unfortunately, Eli left her front door open so I weasled on in for an impromptu MTV Cribs tour.

I cannot wait to see what crazy things [Mod] Eli comes up with next... actually, I know some of the crazy things she's up to, so I can't wait for you guys to see what's around the bend! Y'all don't be strangers now, yuh hear?
(pictured: it reads "Adventure awaits..."... cuz shaders. Yeah.)
Ohsomanythingstosay. *Ahem*... there's just so much we got going on right now. So, so much. This is just the "short list" of things we got in store:
Reworked, Redone & New Plug-Ins
A "Proper" Tutorial Area
New BuildHub Biomes
New Perks & Abilities
Completely Original Works
... and that's just the stuff I get to say vaguely. I implore you, stick around this summer... you're in for a treat. This has been yet another StompzCraft Monthly Update... with many more to come. See ya server-side.
