*Horse races will now be open for bets for 3 hours, instead of 2.

Version 1.6.0->
*Gangs need to have at least 5 persons in order to receive power ranking. (There was the thought to need 5 persons in order to create a gang but this would be a bad thing for newbies. So we made it the easy way. A "gang" after all it is a group of people.)

Version 1.6.1->

-New server (Booty Master will get a second server, this means that two servers will run on the same time. The current one will not stop but will keep running. Players will be able to have characters in both servers. Each server will have absolutely NO connection with each other). This will probably happen at July 15th. Probably the rules will be the same for both servers but there may be some differences. Update will be set at a different time too (Probably 12.00 game time).

Version 1.6.2->
Gang members need at least 15 power to send mass messages.
