    Your actors for Denis Villeneuve's new Dune film

    He was good in that BR short (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ9Os8cP_gg). Good choice for Rabban.

    Dune Tabletop Games Coming

    It looks like the movie release has some side effects: https://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/79891/dune-board-miniature-tabletop-role-playing-games-c "With this master license, we are excited to collaborate with our peers and leverage their unique expertise to realize a complete spectrum of game types and authentic experiences,' continues Brisigotti. Slated for late 2019, their first collaboration is a tabletop role-playing game from Modiphius, publisher of celebrated games such as Star Trek Adventures, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Conan, Mutant Chronicles, Achtung! Cthulhu, and Tales from the Loop.

    Possible Emperor Remake?

    I believe both Dune 2000 and Emperor used engines written by Intelligent Games out of the UK which were never used by other Westwood titles. I might be mistaken but I don't think Emperor and Generals share the same data formats so the work they're doing wouldn't be relevant to Emperor.

    The Old Timers' Notice Board

    He comes around every so often. You can @ people now so we'll see if he still has notifications on. Paging @Edric O.

    Site Updates

    I've updated the forum software to the latest version, 4.2.1: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/invision-community-42-r1030/ If you notice anything odd let me know and I can try to fix it.

    Why no response from Terminal contact email?

    That would be me. The website hasn't been updated in some time and the forum downloads section transitioned to be the source for maps. You should be able to upload the map to this thread and then I can add it to the forum downloads section: https://forum.dune2k.com/files/category/53-the-terminal/

    Site Updates

    I've updated the forum software to the latest version. If you're curious this is all the things that have been added/changed/fixed since our last update: If you see anything broken let me know.

    While the website itself isn't focused around Transport Tycoon you are free to discuss it. This is general discussion after all.

    What happened to the forum editor?

    When I upgraded the forum software from 3.x to 4.x the editor changed quite a lot. But that was at least a year ago so it shouldn't have changed too much since then. Having access to the "raw" mode wouldn't be much easier because under the hood it is all HTML now and not BBCode like it used to be. I'm also not sure if I can even enable that mode for anyone but the admin account. If you want to just quote selections of a post you can highlight that text and then a "Quote this" link should appear. Does that make it easier? Also, as an aside, if you are writing and hit "Enter" that will create a new paragraph but if you hit "Shift-Enter" it will just be a line break.

    Yep, I upgraded it at the same time, forgot to mention it.

    @Nyerguds, I also like the power of BBCode but it seems like that option is going away more and more with each release of IP.Board. It does a lot of other things well though so I don't really plan on switching. I did just upgrade the forum software to the latest version so perhaps that has fixed some of those bugs you were experiencing. @X3M, posting has been fairly steady for the last year. Obviously nothing like it was years ago when the Dune games were more active. Here are the release notes for all the versions between what we have now and what we had before: https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/41142-r49/ https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/41132-r48/ https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/41131-r47/ https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/4113-r44/ https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/41123-r46/ https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/41122-r45/
  14. Good to see you're still at it Stefan.

    How Do I Upload A Map?

    Are they maps hosted in the downloads section?
