It's official now ... the most recent Transtopia database has been imported into the database server. I updated the domain records for Transtopia with my registrar to point to the servers. Anything posted on Transtopia after this post will not make it over to the version of the site on's servers. It will take 24 - 72 hours for the domain to point to the servers with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). I will be keeping a close eye on this change to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Thanks.

For those of you who are not aware, Transtopia will be integrated into over the course of the next 3 - 6 months (or sooner if time allows). Transtopia is best known for the incredible kitbashes that their members create. Transtopia will be replacing the current fan creative section on called Demiurgic City. The current content within Demiurgic City will become integrated with the content from Transtopia.

I'm not exactly sure of all of the details yet but it will all be worked out within due time. I will be working my hardest to keep the Transtopia community intact. I have a lot of things planned for the Transtopia and creative community (kitbashers, writers and artists) that should make everyone very happy.

Please stay tuned for futher details. I apologize if this transfer inconveniences anyone.
