This afternoon and this evening, you may have noticed parts of the THN being offline without any notice. I aplogise for this, but since Neocron was offline, and I had a little time on my hands, I thought I would do a little tidy up.
All that was changes was relocating the code from the old Techhaven SVN repositry, to the Shared SVN repositry with the Prophecy Network, and also removing some old code from the Joomla side of THN. If this means nothing to you, don't worry, just read the next paragraph.
Everything should be running as normal, but if you find anything that is not right, please post a thread up on the THN forums.
Also over the next week, I am planning a minor release to the Rares DB to remove Neptune from the listing.
Update 1: Known issue, the Wiki logo has gone missing. It will be restored later!
The Techhaven Network has been on Twitter for a little while now, so it's time that we told you about it.
So just follow us on Twitter @Techhaven. All the latest news from the Techhaven Network will be tweeted there, and any other amusing news that we find in the Neocron world. Also the last 5 tweets will be shown on the THN newsticker.
Now we just need the ability ingame to /tweet I just pwned Brammers outside a safe zone....
The Tech Haven Network will be unavailable from Saturday 24th October 07:00BST until Sunday 25th October 19:00BST.
This is due to the THN being moved to new server hardware. (More CPU power, more Ram, and more uberness as well!) The long downtime is to allow for any issues to be resolved, but I am hoping the site to be back online a lot sooner!
Update: 23 October - the planned downtime has been postponed, a new date will be set soon.(tm)
Recently we had quite a few Neocron players sending updates for Items, which is all very welcome. However in order to get the updates done as efficiently as possible by any of the THN admin team, this is the official way how to submit updates for the Item DB.
Any other method of submitting updates, other than what is listed below are not accepted.
1. Create a new thread with the details up in the Item DB forums here, with a short description on what needs updating. One of the THN admin staff will update the Item DB, and at a later date close the thread. Since the forums does not support attachments, you may send images to
2. On the Wiki where the item is used on the page. Leave an edit on the talk page, with a short description on what needs updating. One of the THN admin staff will update the DB, and leave a note on the talk page.
3. You may also email the admin team handling Item DB updates to
The Tech Haven Network is doing a small browser survey, and we would like you to spend a moment telling us which browsers you use, espeically if you are using an older browser. (Like Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 2)
The results will help decide what browsers the Tech Haven Network will fully support.

This new package contains our new auto-update software, which means your uneX software need never be out-of-date, the uneX programs will periodically check for new versions.
At present, we cannot yet make unex accounts for the version 2 of the launcher automatically, but if you PM Marc Hoover or myself, we can manually create one for you.
The first preview release was not as complete as planned; namely the auto-updater was not included. NSkillV2 is still under development, we soon (TM) hope to be able to provide a very accurate model for damage and resists, including heals and psi shields, and that elusive complete item listing.
