Not even the end of the world slows this place down. It's like they have no idea what goes on outside their own building!

Bureaucracy has a life of its own. That is why "Cracy" (crazy) is part of the word!

I'm not sure the game can actually shut down unless they issue a General Unbuilding Permit. (Crosses fingers, hopes bureaucracy prevails.)

"...they have no idea what goes on outside their own building!" Staying true to the bureaucratic form! ;)

We whittled it down to one server, and the lag is hilariously bad even when there's only one player in the world. You'll run into a quoin and it takes several seconds to register what happened.

Oh, and there are no more animals, all the trees are dying, and houses and towers have vanished. Bureaucratic hall aside, this is not the Ur you remember! It's a depressing, dead one. But hey, at least the rook is gone.

We're running around repopulating areas with life and houses and whatnot for various archival purposes. I took this snap because I'm making animated gifs of all the animated stuff in the game, and I wanted a variety of bureaucroc looks to work against. All of those gifs will be coming to the encyclopedia soon!

LP...is there going to be a downloadable version of the encyclopedia? I would srsly pay real mohnay for that.

Little Poundcake
Hmmmm we hadn't talked about making it downloadable. We're just going to leave it up forever, but augmented with assets and gifs and stuff.

Little Poundcake
"Indefinitely" is a better word than "forever," as forever is a very, very long time. Let's just change that previous comment to read "We're just going to leave it up indefinitely".

No, but I'm pretty sure we can still whip up some onion rings for you. Give me 5 minutes to pull my frying pan out of my pack and pick up an onion.

LP, thank you for all of your notes and snaps from 'the other side'. We all miss it terribly, and while on the one hand it's sad, it helps a little (well, helps me at least) to know and hear what's going on, and it's comforting to know that, for now at least, you're still in there. <3

I'll be so glad to be able to look at the Encyclopedia for a good long while. And in my mind the world is still alive and busy - it's just on a different server than the one you're on, LP! :D

A downloadable Encyclopedia would be awesome!! But I'm also quite happy with the "leave it up indefinitely" part. Glad to hear that not everything will go away at the end of the year.

Could you please populate my street with a cute lil pink roofed house, a seven floor tower, 11 piggies, 2 butterflies, and 42 jellisac mounds.....for archival purposes ;)

Indefinitely?? Oh, wow, that's way more than I ever hoped for! Thanks for doing so much to honor our love for this game! And I'll echo VS--I love seeing the snapshots from the inside. It's like a comforting postcard from home.

Part of me is jealous of you LPC, but 90% of me knows there's not enough Kleenex in the world for me to cope with a week in a dying empty world :-(

The trees were dying once before, a terrible sight, and it makes me sad to envision them now. No animals? Civilization gone? Sigh.

Yes! keep the website up indefinitely! and lol zoey. and little poundcake, if you don't let me in, i'll just leave you with half a server and it'll be even more laggy.

Thanks for the news about the encyclopedia! I suppose in theory it would all be findable via archive.org or similar, but this is so much more awesome, and hopefully keeping a server up (or a Cloudfront-fronted S3 bucket, whatever) to serve relatively modest amounts of static content isn't so much of a burden.
