QB Gaming Sites On the Move
(11/26/2003) If you haven't been updating your bookmarks just like us the last few months, then get ready. Many of our QB Affiliates have moved around or disappeared entirely!'s sharp new design brings new focus to it's forum and download list.

The landscape for QB websites is constantly changing, even when V Planet isn't updating. This is especially true for our QB affiliates, many of whom have gone through some radical changes during the last four months! Unfortunately, some of the news involves QB sites disappearing or retiring. Other popular QB news sites have changed hands or URLs.

V Planet has updated our Affiliate List to reflect all the changes. In the meantime, here's a list of everything that's happened so far so that you can update your bookmarks as well:

Clockwerk Productions - Closed
The QB programming group, which disappeared while making The Morikun Tale, was a long time affiliate of V Planet. We'll be happy to restore that affiliatedom if we can find their new website.

Lovely Pressure - Closed?
The QB game review site whose mission statement was "to help cover the QB game scene since Vplanet and Gbgames have been slow for a while" disappeared from the Internet recently. Was the mission for QB game review site Lovely Pressure completed? The current whereabouts of the site are unknown. 

NemesisQB - Closed
Providing programming and gaming services, NemesisQB operated for two years and gathered nearly 12,000 hits before retiring. Josh and Plasma cited that many of the members of NemesisQB have moved on to other activities, and the remaining members agreed that there was no "time to do the updates that are needed to have an active group site."

Programmer's Heaven
Formerly called the Programming Sharehouse, Programmer's Heaven has a new layout and a new location, but the easy navigation across many different kinds of programming sites is still the same.
After making a stay at a .net and .org address, finally returns to the URL that bears it's namesake. The original king among QB sites is back with over 1400+ QB-related downloads. With a new forum and a QB link database, is still one of the top resources for programmers and gamers alike. 

QB Colony
Fellow QB game review site QB Colony inadvertently joined V Planet in taking a hiatus for four months. There's a better excuse though; Webmaster PJ Haye is currently working on another website and is currently optimizing both websites so that they are easier to update. "As soon as it's up, I'll be able to cycle between both sites at a healthy pace, and since I'll endlessly be bored with one, and work on another, this just may make it to where both sites do better," reports PJ.

Statto Software
This is V Planet Links Manager Diamond Titan's site. Even though it isn't QB related, it's foundation is based on Diamond Titan's other favorite hobby, soccer management. If you want to know how it's like to manage your own sports team, Diamond Titan has many simulations downloadable from the site.

Tales of Utopia - Closed?
Terry Cavanagh's QB programming site, most notable for it's isometric QBRPG project, is currently in a construction phase. If Tales of Utopia comes back online, V Planet will restore the link.
