Well it been around 11 years, and regardless of the decay of the community, SHH still thrives!

Just to see how far its come, look here.

This link will take you to an archiving program that allows you to look at the previous versions of websites, its loads of fun!

The more tiny look of the site is funny indeed.

Hm, decay ... and still thrives ... Maybe, the nature of things is change, and an older state passes while a new state takes its place?

Surely, the most exciting time of making brand new magic discoveries in the editor or of shaping really naturally-looking surfaces for the first times, is over.

Maybe it has been rather about refinements in the following years. Map difficulties becoming harder, scripts more complex and elaborated.

Two things of less importance which I don't miss from the times of beginning: reviews consisting of but "I had joy playing the map - 5/5", and Walkthroughs of superficial character.

I remember those days. Doesn't seem all that long ago till I read the date Had a lot of fun in the very early days of SHH when we were still trying to build the site.

Wow that is really a blast from the past, Mere. I remember those days too. It was when I was lurking and afraid to post. Goodness that means I have been here almost ten years.
The Heaven Games early page is on there too.
Thanks for the link, wolfman4god

This is the oldest for the CityBuilders: it's from January 1999.

And as an extra, here is the page from the first Olympics page at the CityBuilders. You will have to scroll down for checking it out. Some of the links on the Olympics part of the page might be broken but I believe most should work.

I'm glad you all enjoy it. I myself(yes a little redundant) have not been here very long, but have enjoyed talking and playing with you all!
