    I see that you have made some changes to the Fire Powered Generator, but has the Assembly Station Lv 2 been added back in?
    The Fire Powered Generator cannot be made without it, and I have been waiting for it to come back

    Hey just wanted to let you guys know, that you are doing an amazing Job at “My Time at Portia”. My friends and I stumbled across this game on steam and we are absolutely in love with it.
    The character design, the landscape, the ruins, everything is so amazing and well thought thru. Even tho its only early access, so far we have not experienced any major bugs or anything and it runs absolutely smoothly. We can’t wait to see what else u guys have planned and hope for some more festivals 😉
    Keep up the good work guys!

    Good ?V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, website theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task..

    My husband and i got absolutely thankful that Ervin could do his basic research via the ideas he came across through your web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply happen to be giving out information and facts which usually men and women have been trying to sell. And we all take into account we need the website owner to give thanks to for that. These explanations you have made, the simple website navigation, the relationships your site make it possible to foster – it’s most incredible, and it’s really helping our son and the family do think this issue is excellent, and that’s unbelievably essential. Many thanks for the whole thing!
