    This might be a little bit early to ask. But I was wondering if there is maybe info about perhaps a Gold Rush being made for this year as well. Last years Gold Rush was fun, loved the Magurgs. So wondering if there is a continuation planned for it :)

    Thought so, too... but the moment somebody messes up a team setting after playing an all-nighter, everybody runs the other way screaming "scam". And it's still too damn easy to screw people, so this paranoia is totally justified. You can't easily play with people you haven't known before. It would be good for the game and its social function if Gothenburg sat down over things like that instead of the squandering of time with useless UI tweaks. This would add a new dimension to Gold Rush and other events.

    There will be a Gold Rush as usual this year as well but that is all I can tell you at this time.

    Just revisiting the above and getting the impression that the tongue-lashing was premature, superficial and unjustified. I'm sorry if that is the case, can I blame those before me for getting sucked in? ;)

    I don't think they sat down with the goal of making cosmetic changes to the mission tracker. They implemented new features into it for this: http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?283869-Fight-With-New-Technology!

    I am there at Fort Medusa just now where there is a robot invasion going on. "Yet again" might be the initial reaction, but it's actually cool and quite fun. New is this: The mission tracker pops up the moment you enter the area and gives you two progress bars: One is a timer for the current round, the other a personal progress tracker which appears to be tied to the damage you deal.

    It seems to me that this would enable exactly what has been requested so passionately during last year's Gold Rush, namely a proper instance timer tied to overall mission progress. And it can do more than that by the looks of it. The clunky appearance might get overrhauled in coming patches and is likely just taken from a standard set of UI elements like the ones commonly seen in OpenGL applications. Implement funcionality first, take in feedback, then finish appearance.

    I'm just guessing of course, but it seems totally logical to me now. Mathias, did I say too much?

    I hope you are right when it comes to the look of the window. I personally don't care for the extra stuff showing up, and I certainly do not like the idea of the tracker popping up on its own if it is closed. It's too big and it is missing the show more/less arrows next to each mission entry. Right now it's all or nothing.
