20.10.2016 Firefox v49 Browser Issues [updated]
Dear fox-ish Settlers,
With the latest Firefox version (49.01) many details changed "under the hood". This caused an invisible layer now to disappear when the game is started. As a result nothing can be done inside the game, although it's loaded properly.
Our developers are working on a fix. Since it's a website based issue, no game update is needed to apply the changes. We will update this post once the improvement is deployed.
How can you still play?
- Please use our "Slim Browser" to be able to play
- Use Firefox portable version 48.0.2 or lower
- Use another Browser like Chrome, Edge or Internet Explorer
Update: a hotfix has now been deployed, which should resolve the issues with the latest version (v49.01) of Firefox.
Happy Halloween Event!

10.10.2016 Halloween 2016 - Dev Diary
It's that time of the year again: Halloween is coming closer! Sonya Graham just reported seeing some ghosts in the distance. Your Geologists spotted Golems rowing up in tunnels below your island - a brand new "Supreme Golem" has been found!
We've implemented new content like buffs, buildings and decorations in this year's Halloween event. Also, the way Pumpkin Cemeteries work has been changed.
More Adventures reward Pumpkins (via Refillers). Find Pumpkins by sending Explorers out on a Treasure search, collect guaranteed Pumpkins on the island and try to get all of the 2016 Halloween Achievements.
Check out the Dev Diary about Halloween Event 2016.
Changes compared to last year are highlighted for you.
Have a happy Halloween &
