Site news 12 August
I am aware that the Infocenter is very out of date and my apologies for that. However, I'm very busy updating all sections. I started with my favorite part, the Traits, which are now completely finished. The plumbot and pet traits have been recently added.
I will try to update the rest of the Infocenter asap.

Also I added a gallery viewer to the site. I will update all galleries the coming days but for now you can check the Into the Future page how it works.
