Antispam on te4.org

Recently there have been a few spams getting through on te4.org.
I do not like spam!

So I have now setup the site so that to be able to post blogs/... on te4.org you need to be verified.
To be verified is extremely easy: login in the game itself with your account and you will be authorized to post as before (this is obviously fully transparent for people already using an online profile, next time you start the game you will be authorized automagically).

If you can't/don't want to do it, just use the contact form to contact me and I will enable your account.

Have fun!

Celebrations!

Many things to celebrate today!

We finally hit the 5000 played days, this is about 13 years and 8 months of play time!
We also hit the first thousands euros of donations.

This is bringing me much hope for the future, as in those cases, more is always better :)

My fellow players, please, continue to have fun!

New te4 server incoming, higher fee

Hi my fellow players

 

You might have noticed the te4.org server had quite a few hipcups in the last days/weeks/months.

I have decided get a new server for hosting.

It will have 16GB of memory (2 in the current one), a quad core intel i5 2.66GHz (dual core 2GHz in current one), 2 TB of hard drive (512GB in current one) ! That's quite the next step!

And it will only cost 20euros more per month (for a total of 50/month).

So if anybody feels generous, do as Canderel did, make a reccuring donation, this way I can sleep well, knowing the server will always be paid :)

 

It should be available in about a week :)

 

Until then (and after that!) : have fun!

Donations fixed, reward coming soon!

When trying to donate some people got a very uniformative paypal login page, this is now fixed and you may all enjoy the act of donating to the game that brings you pleasure and fun! :)

 

Also, coming next beta, donators will get a little fun reward in game: custom tiles!

All donators, when logged on their online profile, will be able to use a custom tile for their character, chosen from a list of over 180, ranging from special clothing to downright madness, check out the video for some examples:

 

PS: There are a few donators who didnt donate while logged or from an email known to the system and are thus not credited as donators, when beta29 comes if you are in this case contact me and we will fix the issue swiftly!
