Item Trading Redesign

. Finally we're pleased with what we have created and we're re-opening it to the public.
Take a look at our new Trade Listings

Users Banned And Website Unavailability
Many apologies for the downtime and ban alerts that many of you received this morning.
Our server ran out of disk space and because our database was uncontactable users were falsely being redirected to our banned page, which of course you arent really.
We have been working with our hosting partner to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future and have doubled the available disk space gving us plenty of room for growth.
As you can see, normal service has been resumed but if you are experiencing any additional errors be sure to drop myself or sp0r a PM or post on our forum.
On a side note, if you haven’t already be sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook (links at the top of the site), we will keep you up to date on issues like this in addition to bringing you updates of the latest features were implanting to the site.
Imports From Game Data
Just completed a script that allows us to directly update our database from the game data, this should mean updates come through a lot quicker and should be more accurate.
Just updated all items in the database, if you come across anything weird let me know
We are pleased to announce our latest feature, our H1Z1 resource calculator. This tool allows you to quickly build up a list of raw materials for any number of crafting requirements which you can then share with friends and allows both of you to work on collecting the items together, updating the list as you all update it.
Link to our H1Z1 Resource Calculator
Map Search Function
Added the ability to search our ever expanding database directly from the map page, all requests open in a new tab leaving your map placement intact.
PHPBB Embedable Maps
PHPBB forum owners can now take advantage of our new forum map share feature. This functionality provides forum users with a simple way of sharing a map location using a new BB Code and a map share id.
Visit the Map Share Help Page
for more information.
