A sudden popularity explosion forced us to take The Universe into a serious maintenance, to make sure it offers high quality gameplay and performance. Don't be shocked if a nice feature got removed. Most of them are temporary, so we can bring a better version back later on.

Thanks to the big community we were able to find a lot of bugs, which are now fixed. Our Staff Team is now 4x bigger, the community 16x.

Big updates:

  • The Universe is now a network of multiple protected and connected servers acting like one.

  • Cleared the Cosmics perk '/block'. Will be updated with a new perk in the near future.

  • Renamed the Cosmics perk '/privatechest' to '/vault'.

Things that work a bit differently for now, because we just wanted to open the server:
