Hello there, everyone!

Soooooo, I wanted to annouce something, but I didn't want to make a whole new thread specifically for it, since is not really that important... Is more like a notification than an announcement.

So I created this thread where we'll post anything that the community deserves to know, but isn't quite big enough to get its own thread.

Anyway, the point is that Gecko Gekkota found a way to make all new users receive a DM with a link to the TOS, Rules and FAQ. Basically she created a welcome bot, that will automatically send a welcome message to all new users as soon as they confirm their accounts.

This bot is Jim The Welcome Bot.

This means that there's really no need to send them the links via profile post, as we all been doing. Obviously, you can welcome all new users if you want, but the link to the Terms of Service/Forum Rules and FAQ is really not necessary anymore.

That's it. Have a nice day. :)

This Jim's a little shy in groups, but always happy to welcome a new face. By all accounts he was a little lonely back in his reality

Gecko, I changed it a little;)
Looks more like a welcome message now, I'm sure Jim'll be able to follow the new script with ease

Great! Now Mars and you don't have to waste time to welcome anyone now!
That was one of the main drives behind this, it's tedious work that requires catching every newcomer. Now there's no need to worry

To all Team Frontier users:

I've increased the amount of lines you can put in your signature to 8, and the amount of printable characters to 80.

That is all. Enjoy the rest of your day.

A section has been added to the "Questions and Answers" thread in the mods section.

See here.

It consists in a list of the most relevant mods, based on the opinion of several modders and players. Mods are sorted by category so that you can easily find what you're interested in.
You're a fan of SpaceX? Just have a look, you'll find instantly all SpaceX related mods.

For information, a version of the guide is also available on Steam, with a link to all repositories in addition, so that mods can be downloaded from there in case the forum is down.
