First Note

With AEON's development expanding and DJH_ spending a majority of his time making what's probably going to be the one of the best skins ever, I decided to put together an ODE to all things AEON CLASSIC.

After a few months of XML splendor, I present you with HORIZONZ: VOLUME IV, more than just any old Release. Don't forget to check out the new Readme.txt file for all information about Horizonz, including Installation Notes, Feature Explainations, Options and Shoutouts. Enjoy this release!

Last Word

Developement on Horizonz is temporarily slowing down, due to my working patterns and me not being used to it yet. The Creative juices will resume when my adrenaline kicks in again so continue to offer suggestions and provide me with feedback, and I promise I'll give the forum a readback and reply to the best of my ability.

Above all Enjoy using HORIZONZ! Volume V will be on it's way in no time! L8r!
