Highrise Version 0.0.3 ALPHA
Highrise Developer is a game based off of the original simtower, with better graphics, more features, a cleaner, user customizable UI, and just about any feature you can think of, thanks to it's open source nature, and planned plugin system.

I am working to combat the spam issues on this website, it seems that the bots continue spamming a topic until the server doesn't output the comment form anymore, since the comments actually exhaust the server's memory. I'm working to create algoritms to identify likely spam posts and reject them.
Incedentally, everyone has been busy lately, so not much has gotten done on the highrisedev front. The spam issues continue to plauge the forum as well, and there we don't have as much control to take care or the problem automatically-- just try and figure out how to modify phpbb...
Preparing for Alpha 004

I'm currently busy with some projects like work, fixing the house and harvesting pecans.
Soon I'll update the UI and go with some ideas we put on the forum about buttons and showing activities from tower. I will use OpenGL with some home brew classes that provide buttons and text boxes for the feedback IE People can't reach the Sky lobby on Level 15. This will incorporate a future enhancement to load from XML, JSON or homebrew files.
More to come.
