Commadner jao: That just means that his server was off-line.
Croxis, why don't you run your server 24/7? That way, unless it crashes, more people (from other timezones) can beta-test.

My server is up 24/7. Late last night it crashed due to a small bug I overlooked. It is now fixed and server back up.

Should I be hitting 770fps when on the front page?

Yup. Because there is very little geometry being drawn the raw fps will be very fast for performance testing reasons. Normally the frame rate will be capped at your monitors refresh rate (no point in drawing faster than the hardware).

So:

- yes, camera is now only horrible  :D
- Some buttons in GUI aren't visible (for example the "OK")
- How can I esc from a city?

Anyway... congratulation!

Oh, and I forgot to say that the camera moves to N,E and O but not to S when hovering the mouse above the edge of the window.

Looking good. The sky model is awesome, but try making the camera spin/zoom with its target at the surface of what the mouse is pointing at. Black and white 1/2 and tycoon city new york used such approach, it is was quite good for handling the camera.

In the city view I still notice a little camera bug (moving after zooming).

Then, when typing city name, WASD as camera control should be disabled...

Anyway, the new camera looks very cool!

Notes added on my todolist. Not exactly sure the camera behavior you are speaking of victor, but I hope it will fix itself when i update the terrain system.

Note: I'm working with the upstream developers on a particular bug with some backend systems, so there might not be much visible progress for until we get it resolved.
