History:This section is incomplete. However, this version of NS Economy, is based on the version readily available via Sourceforge here.
Why a Rewrite:Once you download the original, you will find that there are some deprication issues. This rewrite is intended to bring the elder code up to both security and ability standards of the newer systems without losing the look feel, and operability of the system. Instead of just overwriting the works that preceded this, we have built and hosted this version for the community since 2011.
Technically:Particularly, this version of NSECONOMY was written to PHP 4, MYSQL 5, Apache 3, and on Linux Kernel 4 - 5. It's currently on it's 3rd server, and has worked well for over half a decade. In addition the variable system was rewritten to eliminate globals and be more secure. Finally, the download suite, pulling all NationState.net info, is compliant with the new API rules, downloading all nations and regions from the game daily.

Can I get the source code:The deprecated source code for version 0.7.0 is available through the project page, and is released under the GNU General Public License. This NSECONOMY system was the motivation to the origin of this system. Unfortunately, with newer hardware, software, and security considerations, much of the architecture that the 0.7.0 release relies upon is deprecated. Therefore, the original version, 0.69.B was then completely rewritten to deprecate the elder technology. Version 1.69 was live until April 2016, and was replaced with a responsive design for version 2.69f.
As a new player, I quickly found out that this would more than stubb some toes. The intent was to re-release this code to Source Forge. But this would eliminate much work done by many. This would only serve a few. Whereas, this site, consistently being built out, and hosted, is a larger benefit to the community.
