Good news! The site has been growing steadily and has upgraded today to a much bigger and better server! It should now run noticeably quicker and more smoothly, especially during the busy hours. Please let me know if notice a difference while your going form page to page.
I’ve been wanting to HD videos for a while now, but that wasn’t possible on the old server. As you know, I’ve been releasing animations in Flash format by default, and SD video for mobile phones. With the new server, it should be very manageable to do HD video, and I’ll try it out on the next video. If things go well enough, I might make HD video the default animation option over Flash. Flash does have a much lower file size and doesn’t take nearly as much bandwidth to load, but video formats have video controls and is more accessible to various devices.
Anyway, I’m glad the site has been upgraded again. It outgrew it’s first server back in last October, and now it needs an even bigger one for all the people using it. I’ll be happy get an even better server in the future when we grow even more.

Player Creation of the Week: TheReaper’s Castle
TheReaper got builder about a month ago for this castle nearby Foxx’s Pokemon track. It was difficult to take a screenshot showing how nice it looks in game, but this shot shows the courtyard, a tower, and the staircase leading inside.
What the Fox is up to this week: Pokemon Pixelart!
The Foxx major project on the server has been making pixel art of all 151 original Pokemon for a few months now. He recently finished Sandslash. The Pokeball railroad has its start in spawn by the Foxx’s house. When viewing the Pokemon by rail, please take care to stop before the end of the road, as it seems many people have fallen off the end like in a cartoon. Have fun looking at the pixel-monsters and try not to die
