I threw the switch and opened this year's April Fool's Day ("AFD") area. While I was busy doing some last minute fussing, I noticed within the player window that one player's name had suddenly changed. I went to investigate and I found, to my horror, that the old Angbang area was now opened.
This came as a surprise to me, because this was an area which I had not opened! I did a quick check and discovered that (somehow) the portal leading from the current AFD area to town was not leading to town — as indicated within my copy of the world file — but instead was leading to the old AFD Encore Nexus.
Ugh. I quickly applied a patch so that the exit portal to town actually lead to town. I would have left the old Nexus area opened, but some of the areas within the encore required preparation (and bug fixes) which simply had not been prepared (nor fixed).
I hope that this is the only joke played on me for this update!
