While I understand your decision not to contribute in the development of Egosoft games anymore, this is still the site of reference for players looking for help and information with the game, no other Rebirth site or wiki offers the amount of information and accessibility present here. It will be a great service to the players if you keep it up to date with latest developments. Anyway thanks a lot for your efforts so far, they have been a great help to many players.

hi there, it is possible for me to update the site with the new files - as long as it doesnt require a recode. I think its doubtful egosoft will do any major changes to their XML structure... although didnt I update some sections to v2.5 already? Confused

I don't think this game will ever be particularly amazing, and definitely not nearly as good as the X3 series ever were. However it would be interesting to see your personal take on the 3.0 patch Roguey, and to see this website fully updated with all the latest ships and their information.

I think this one year Anniversary update will be the big break or forever fail patch for this game.

Thanks for the answer Roguey, I mostly only check station/wares information but I link your site quite often for people looking for the best place with information about the game, so happy to know that the site is being updated. Thanks again for your work, it is greatly appreciated.
