Finally it is finished. A HUGE update for the game that completely overhauls the core aspects of hosting adult websites.

To start off: Some of you might dislike some decisions I made. But I made these decisions to prevent another reset altogether.

Hosting overhaul
Completely redesigned hosting mechanism. There are now 5 hosting service types to offer: Shared Hosting, Dedicated Server, Virtual Private Server, Cluster and Cloud.

But to prevent working around legacy code, I had to delete all existing hosting providers. Sorry about that, but again, this prevented a complete reset. I know a lot of you had invested much in servers, but it would take me a lot of time to even write a script to refund that money. Hope you understand.

Mind that CPU usage is re-balanced as well.

To not get every website offline after this update, I have created a Cloud service provided by AdultWebsiteTycoon. I migrated all the existing, active websites to that Cloud service. You are free to start your own provider and leave this service, of course!

Hosting provider alerts
To get a good overview of your hosting company, all kinds of alerts are now visible on the main screen of your provider. If you have not paying customers, if a server is down, etc, all will be listed on the main page.

For all the new information about the new hosting mechanisms, check out this guide.

Build your own website CMS
From now on, a website can not be online without a CMS. A CMS is basically something like Wordpress, Joomla, etc. But these CMS systems are designed, developed and maintained by you!

Again, to get everyone started with existing websites, AdultWebsiteTycoon has created a very basic CMS for every website type. But these CMS'ses won't get developed any further with new features, so I hope to see that you guys start a Web Design company very fast and develop your own CMS!

This means however, that the current CMS assigned to the existing websites is pretty basic. This will lead to a simplified website layout with less options. I hope that users will develop their own CMS systems soon so that the features return.

Check out this new guide for all the information you need to know.

Website failure system overhaul
In addition to the new CMS system feature, websites can get disturbed with bugs caused by unmaintained CMS system and CMS versions. Read all about that in the same guide mentioned above.

Specializations
In the game, you can now have only one specialization. Currently, there are two specializations: Hosting provider and a Web Design company. So you can only own either of those two. In the future, additional company types will come into the game, which will have the same limitation.

Starting girlfriend additions
New players are allowed to choose the weight and length of their starting girlfriend, as well as a preferred hair color.

Highered daily GTH cap
GTH of non premium users will now refill to a max of 32. For premium users the new value is 64.


Last but not least: I tested this quite extensive, but of course, (major) bugs can be introduced. Please, PLEASE report these on the Bug section of the forum, even if something benefits you. Let's make this a better game altogether!

Yes. I realise that. That's intended. The current CMS is pretty basic. I hope that users will develop their own CMS systems soon so that the features return.

As much as I don't like it, the specializations was a good call. It prevents full on monopolies in the business. AKA: now I have to rely on at least one other player to run all my stuff efficiently

A small nerf has been applied: From now on, you can spend 5 GTH to apply 3 develop points instead of 5. I noticed that developing is currently too fast.
