"Steel Force®: A simulation online game" Update: Beta Build 2010-09-08/006
Hello fellow community readers!
I trust you are doing well so far in the new school year session. As summer has officially end its season here in the most of the USA states, we are moving forward to the fall/winter seasons ahead.
By now you should be seeing the leaves turning colors and falling to the ground. The fall crisp air smell and cool breeze is an already sign that the summer has concluded for this year. But don't let that let you down, there's always a way to still enjoy great amusement/theme parks that are still open til October! So hang in there and study hard!
Steel Force Update: Sorry for the slow progress! :(
This is another huge milestone for us as we are slowly but surely working on the simulation for Dorneyonline.com website. We've been getting emails and Facebook postings in our facebook group on the status of the simulation and even the release date "summer 2010" on dorneyonline.com website.
First things first, we are sorry that its taking longer than expected. We already knew that working on the new coding of Flash 'ActionScript 3.0' would be a challenge for us and as well re-learning the language since the previous simulations to current on Themagical's website is under the 'ActionScript 2.0' code (with the help of disney magic of course making it come alive). ;)
Thank you for your cooperation and patience with us. We are confident that waiting on us and as well working on the performance of the Steel Force Simulation, we know you'll enjoy it as much as we continue to create it and see it come to life!

-New Visitors Functions: Entering Station/Unloading from Train: (New Milestone) Visitors are now entering the Station to be waited to load into the train. After ride cycle is over, they are clicked to be unloaded from the train with 'Unload Train' button in the control panel.
- Control Status Bar Added: This will show actions that have been made on the control panel. This will show you what was currently used at that current time.
Thank you so much for being patient with us as we are working on the Steel Force simulation and as well enjoy reading our blog.
We'll keep you updated once new information comes available.
Until Next Time!
