Yes...mine took about 15 minutes to update while logging in.....I hope that means LOTS of new stuff to do starting Saturday!
Regarding the update while linking from your Nexus to the city, it just takes a while. Mine took almost 5 minutes with several loading bars.
I got in very early, right after the site was up again after adding the updates. We had a lot of fun "line dancing" thanks to Ravenclaw's music!
A lot of people were experiencing unusual things in the public city last night:
Some people were seeing the blue GZ light and no texture in the city, and could not see all the people either.
This was usually resolved by linking out and relinking back in. We figured it was a glitch or maybe all the updates were not loaded the first attempt.
I really only noticed one change in the city....................
All the cones except one are GONE! Only one "LONE CONE"
CHIEF: I would be happy to help you find the other holes in Minkata. You really should get those done before the new release of Ercana. I will be online tonight, so if you see me, give me a shout!
By the way....the round brown things on Minkata are called "Scars".....since they look like scars on the land.
