The offer looking for people to create a new template for the TC site and the EH site as well as components for the new TC uniform system is still looking for submissions. The details for that are located at
this thread.

Remember, EHNet Hosting is available, just contact me for details. After several troubles with the server EHNet was hosted on, it has been moved to a more reliable and much faster server, and we should not have any issues in the future, but if you do come accross anything, don't hesitate to contact me.


The EH IO Links Database has been updated to contain 130 websites. These sites shall be audited ASAP.

A new version of SquadFirst+ has been released (2.0.5), fixing roster links, quicklinks and the CoCs link. It also adds a submission form for the EH Links Database. Remember that this is necessary for all EH sites. The new version of SquadFirst+ is located at

The website for the Science Office's flightsim in development, Imperial Alliance, has been completed and shall be available to the public very soon.

Sword Squadron Site
Webmaster: MAJ Talek Pter Dei

I ask you, the membership of the Emperor's Hammer, to submit sites that you believe are worthy of a site of the week award. To qualify as site of the week, a site should look alright (doesn't need uber graphics to win though), have plenty of relevant information about the particular unit or function, and is updated regularly. Sites must be in the EH Site Database to qualify for Site of the Week.
