Really nice and minimalistic design on the launcher, looking forward to that.
Also, a shame that I couldn't attend the buildcon, it looks really impressive. Hope that'll happen again some time.

Suggestion for the launcher: Remove the "show news" function and set it to off/false, as I don't think it works anymore with the old website being gone, and is pretty much obsolete because of that.

Every thing seems good I am just a bit mad I wasn't there to help make it but thats ok. Stack, the launcher should be a launcher in the sense that spadlle was a launcher. Instead of it launching the server page in your browser it should be on the launcher itself. This way in the future we can have more features like the clans and friends systems we were talking about earlier.

oh and by the way, I really like the custom bns newsletter art. Maybe it could be a mini-comp for people to send in their own art and the best one would get chosen.
