It is Friday so we would like to keep you informed about the latest updates and improvements, as usual. Brace yourself for a pretty long list!
Let's start with a hot topic: new languages. To keep it short, here is the next wave of eRepublik languages : Serbian, Croatian, Greek, Turkish and Bulgarian. When? One or two weeks at most and your wait will be over! Also, don't forget to send us your feedback ( message to the Feedback department ) in order to let us know about mistakes, or to suggest improvements for already existing languages. Thanks!
National Chat Room law: this law allows you to vote for any private chat room to become the National Chat Room of your country. This has several advantages, one of them is the possibility to self-moderate the chat room. If you want to learn more about this feature have a look at our Wiki page. Happy chatting everyone!
A payment by SMS update now allows citizens in the following countries to buy GOLD by SMS : Turkey, Ireland, Czech Republik, Netherlands, Portugal, Malaysia and Singapore. Welcome!
Citizenship glitch: new born citizens now receive the citizenship of the region's original country. This way, at registration, new citizens receive the correct citizenship, regardless if another country had occupied the selected region. Furthermore, in order to make our new born citizens' first steps easier, here are some more modifications: they start their e-life with 100 wellness (instead of 50) and reach experience level 2 with only 6 Experience Points (EP). Also, they'll be able to fight from level 3, move from level 4 and send e-mail invitations from level 5 onwards. This will make the exploration of the New World much more interesting during the first days.
Hospital glitch: We continue with some news for food companies. You will love it: your products will become much more important in our daily lifes. The old "trick" to use hospitals as a substitute for food and houses is going to change: a citizen will be able to recover from a hospital only the wellness lost in battles, in that day. The maximum wellness which could be restored through healing does not change, it remains related to the hospital quality. So, if you want your character to be happy and healthy you'll have to buy other products, like tasty food and cool houses. The hospital will only heal your war wounds, which makes sense, not like going to war in order to get healthier. Of course, the new modules introducing customized products and time management will add interesting possibilities: for example, you could sleep more to recover more wellness...but why would you waste your beautiful e-life sleeping?
And last but not least, a surprise for you: we are about to launch a new eRepublik forum platform! We've been working on this for several weeks, and right now we are approaching the final phases. The new forum will be much more attractive, with a clear structure of forums and subforums, some new section and also with national forums (which will be implemented gradually). Apart from the improved structure, we'll have lots of new features which forums veterans missed so much; features like the search function, quick reply, quote and multi-quote, languages, easy and plentiful formatting options, polls, nice layout and many other “small details”. Well, the devil's in the details, and at the moment we are importing the existing posts and topics in a separate section of the new forum called "Legacy". If no unexpected events occur, the new forum will be live in a couple of weeks at most, offering all of you a really cool communication tool. We will give you more details in a future Insider.
And yes, we'll return to the new modules series soon with an Insider about Customization Points, which will push the “qualities” concept one step forward.
Well, that's it for today,
Your eRepublik team
