    We just wanted to let you know that we have moved to a new host as well as upgraded the forums. Somethings might break and this is a normal process as we fix and tweak any changes and compatibility issues.

    Please let us know if you end up having any issues so we can fix them asap.

    Have a wonderful week!

    This sounds good but I am just curious if there will be any noticeable difference from the old servers. Like, are the forums going to be more responsive/reliable to include the official in-game Empyrion server? I hope I don't come across as condescending or nit-picky, I am honestly curious for education's sake if it is a step up or just a lateral movement for whichever reason that prompted the migration. The forums and game seemed fine to me already.

    Either way, sounds like good news. Whatever enables these awesome Devs to continue putting out cool content is fine by me!

    The forums were moved to Germany from Canada. Some might have a small hit and some will have a increases load speed on the site. That being said none of this effects actual game servers at all. I use a Proxy system as well so even if you are in the East you should get decent load times still though on the site. The forums were also updated, cleaned up, and tweaked a bit. So performance might of just gotten better naturally as well.

    The only thing I've noticed is that I can' upload screenshots from the game without editing them now. The size limit for attaching images to posts has now been reduced.

    Steam screenshots must be smaller then, they work fine.

    Yesterday I tried uploading an F7 screenshot and received a pop up to the effect that the upload was too large. It worked after I reduced the .jpeg to 1280X1024 from 1920X1080.
