- Please also be aware we will be switching all our game services to SSL and that it will have an impact on existing user scripts supplied by the community. If Grepolis is running inside an SSL context (https) it will no longer be possible to load insecure content (http). Every script that loads external resources, images, scripts or iframes, will fail to do so. Script developers have to supply it as secure content. We will start with a grace period where Grepolis is available through SSL on demand. After some time we will switch to a forced SSL solution. The current schedule is to start with the SSL grace period end of March, which gives enough time to script developers to accommodate with the change.
