Sitewide SSL

Due to future changes implemented by Google in their Chrome browser, followed later by others, we've implemented a sitewide encrypted transfer policy. All pages are now loaded using the SSL protocol, as indicated by the green lock icon at the address bar.

Some things to note:

  • You may see "not fully secure" errors (yellow lock icon) if the page contains images or content linked from external servers not using SSL (non-https links). This should only happen on game's Dashboard and on some forum pages where users can hotlink images from other sites.

  • In reference to above we request to upload images to our servers, or hotlinked images using https instead of http (if available).

  • It is still possible, and expected even, that some redirects or other configurations may not work properly, so please do let us know if you encounter continuous slow page loads or security errors, or anything else that doesn't look normal.

Server software updates

We have been doing some housekeeping and updating the essential server softwares and other settings over the last few days.

At the same time the core system of the website has received some updates in order to better log errors and to track the memory usage for example.

Since the changes have affected several sections and systems please again report actively if you see abnormal error messages or slow pages.

Privacy policy updated

Due to new legislation coming into force shortly we, like many other businesses, have updated our Privacy Policy. The updated policy is written to include more information compared to the previous version, as required by the new rules, but in practice our data and privacy policies remain mostly similar than before since we have already previously operated very respectfully towards user privacy and protecting the data.

If you have already opted in to receive our newsletter you do not separately need to opt in again due to these legal changes.

Network updates

As part of our planned server upgrades, we've already changed some of our network settings and preferences today and switched the service provider in one network system. Since they have a better (worldwide) coverage than the previous system this might result in just a bit faster page loading times for some of our users.

Please let us know if some part of our site has become unreachable or slow after this change (28th May, 11 UTC).

New server hardware

Like already announced we have moved to new server system. At the same time other updates have been done. All this has taken a lot of time but here are some highlights:
  • New server environment and hardware. Total update of all system software.

  • New support ticket system taken into use.

  • Most email sending systems updated (most vital emails are routed through Amazon's email service for better deliverability).

  • Forum software updated.

  • Various new service status monitoring systems (for admin purposes) taken into use and/or improved.

Improved e-mail services

The delivery method for all system-generated e-mails has been replaced. These include for example notifications of low credit balance, password reminders and other such automated messages.

Like our newsletter already does, now also all these other e-mails are sent out via Amazon's delivery network to improve the reliability of the e-mail deliveries.

E-mail migration

All of the e-mail services at AirwaySim (and all others, including my personal email and mails of all other projects) are being migrated to a new server and system.

This might cause some temporary delays in e-mail delivery when sending to us (for example when opening a support ticket). If you have issues during the next few days please use forum private messages or our Discord instead.
