  1. June Update!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Itís been quite a while since my last progress report. Things are coming along but there is still a little ways to go with the graphics update.

  2. January Update

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

  5. Architecture Snap Update!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Iíve patched the latest build with minor changes not including the upcoming graphics update. This build features the architecture snap feature that makes aligning similar construction parts to each other much easier.

    In addition this patch is a preparation for the upcoming graphics update and War System. A lot of the code has been cleaned up with many functions prepared to be compatible with the DirectX 11 changes. These changes should not have any ...
