Saint Patrick’s Day

Around a month ago, the Saint Patrick’s Day event update was released. Some notable additions to the game were the brand new School Bus (you can watch the video regarding that below), the Lucky Top Hat, and the Bucket O’ Gold quest. These items are no longer obtainable.

You can watch the school bus preview video below, the video was taken before the update was released.

If you’re interested in them, the update logs for Saint Patrick’s Day is available below.

All servers were restarted for this update.

This event will end in two weeks (March 30th).

April Fools

The April Fools event turned the entire map of Nevada and Arizona into the country of Great Britain. Deemed the worst update by some users in the Anomic community Discord and a rating of 2.67/5 here, it was clear not many people were fond of it.

All firearms were removed from the game and were replaced with melee weapons such as swords and knives. Vehicles were also remodeled for the update and some vehicles were entirely removed until the update was reverted.

Anomic Wiki Hires

Recently, @DrippedChonk who is a new administrator for the Anomic Fandom Wiki site has opened applications for moderation which have been closed at the time of this newsletter. The wiki has been under re-construction and posts are being edited. The entire wiki is expected to have a complete overhaul. The site has now been considered official according to @Bonfire in the applications announcement.

Speaking of the Anomic Wiki, this is a reminder for us to get on our game and work on our own knowledge base. :wink: If you want to contribute, register and visit the Anomic Knowledgebase.

That about wraps up today’s newsletter! Thanks for reading, we’ll see all of you next time with the next newsletter.
