News regarding The Forest release

Here are some things i have planned regarding this site for the upcoming Forest release in around April:

  • The current login (username/email/password) will be replaced with Steam.
    This will be more secure, no more activation mails and no forgotten passwords.
    Old usernames will stay (e.g. in Gallery).
  • "Coop" will get an overhaul.
    Everything except the dedicated server list will be removed (i.e. Settings, Search, Host, Players)
  • User placed markers will be reduced.
    Users will only be able to upload screenshots and place the marker "Good Spot" to mark their favorite place to build their base.
    Everything else will be used from ingame items/places. I.e. no markers in the wrong place.
  • A fresh start
    Most user placed markers will be removed.
    Screenshots and the latest "Good Spot" markers will stay.
