Forgot to Buy Escape Pod

Quick question:

If I forgot to purchase an escape pod in the current running game here, are all of my planets and ship/IGB funds gone?

Just wanted to point out some of my follies in trying to install BlackNova Traders (BNT) on a home web-server to tinker. Easiest Always Isn't When I downloaded Black Nova Traders off of SourceFor...

Re: Poll of interest of BNT recode?

It would be interesting to learn if the re-coding will be done using PHP5 or if it will instead be done using the newer PHP7.

Re: New Game in Beta

Thank you for the head's up. I couldn't get the mailer within BNT to work at all. The reference to a mail-server was one of Google's. Since you'd sent me this e-mail, that reference was removed from config.php. One of the things I'd attempted in the last week was to set up a home-based e-mail server...

To possibly resolve this: Make sure your browser is set to allow cookies for the domain (website) where I am running the game. Also, make sur...

Re: monetising BNT

You pointed out how some game admins might be taking advantage of free domains/hosting, etc. It is possible that a hosting provider company allows their "free" hosting service inside of an HTML frame, giving them the ability to have framed ads on the sides, top and/or bottom; not to mention those ma...
