A Decade of Cyber Nations

Posted by admin , 06 January 2016 - * * * * * · 1,116 views

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Cyber Nations. I always like to look back on history and it seems appropriate to do so today, so here we go.
I registered the Cyber Nations domain name in 2003 with the hopes of creating a web based nation simulation game but I was unable to come up with a working model and I quickly abandoned the project. I l...


Cyber Nations Logos: A brief history

Posted by admin , 04 September 2015 - - - - - - · 2,701 views

So what's the deal with the logo changes in Cyber Nations ? Well I was fiddling around with an image editor this weekend and I liked some of the effects that it was capable of producing. The biggest thing (for me) is that I was able to pretty closely replicate the current logo and save it as a true transparent image. The old CN logo was designed by a play...


Game Advertising and Referrals

Posted by admin , 06 August 2013 - * * * * - · 2,144 views

In an effort to try to increase the player base in Cyber Nations I'm currently testing some new ad campaigns on Google and Facebook and a couple of other sites. Now, I've advertised heavily in the past, but over time I started to see fewer and fewer players actually stick around after clicking on an ad. I feel like the changes that I've made in the game o...


Tournament Updates: Behind The Scenes

Posted by admin , 17 June 2013 - * * * * * · 1,085 views

As you know, I decided to go all out on the updates for tournament round 26. This round features the largest amount of updates that I've made for a new tournament round, and a few of the updates were minor and were not announcement, but were updates none the less. One of the big updates was the alliance announcement system, a feature that had been request...


Tournament Round 26

Posted by admin , 15 June 2013 - - - - - - · 4,033 views

I've been hard at work the past couple of days making some updates for Cyber Nations Tournament Edition Round 26. One of the things that a lot of players have asked for is the ability to create alliance announcements, which has now been implemented. I included the ability for alliance members to post comments on an announcement as well as the ability for...


War Stories

The game has been collecting war destruction stats for about 3 weeks now and already some players have put up some massive damage totals. http://i227.photobuc...zps09e0da14.png  Cyber Nations as a whole has destroyed/lost 63,806,849 nation strength in just the past few weeks. http://i227.pho...


I wonder if he regrets it?

Posted by admin , 29 January 2013 - * * * * * · 1,887 views

With the new war details screen and the ability to see damage infliced by each side in a war, I came across this. Granted, stats for wars began on the 26th and there's still a few days remaning in this war, but I wonder if Momonishiki regrets declaring war on CubaQuerida at this point? http://i227.photobuc...yber Nations...


Where the players are from

Posted by admin , 26 January 2013 - * * * * * · 1,536 views

I was cruising Google Analytics this morning and took a peek at the Cyber Nations visitors map and thought I would share. This is broken down by city over the last month. http://i227.photobuc...zpsfaebbe4e.png  To my surprise, a city in the USA is not top on the list. That honor goes to London....


Hello there long lost emails

Posted by admin , 14 January 2011 - - - - - - · 831 views

This morning I received a report from a player that they had sent me an email some time ago but I never received it. So I started sending test emails to myself and I never received those emails either. I logged into my hosting providers site just now and found 242 rather important emails from just the last month that I had never received. Apparently the...


iPad - What is it good for?

Posted by Atlas , 25 December 2010 - - - - - - · 819 views

So after my last entry here, which dealt with getting a new phone (I ended up getting a Droid), I am now thinking about getting an iPad.

But is this thing really worth buying? What can I do on it that I can't do on my phone? Is it just another useless toy? It would be larger/better for, say, reading...but other than that?
