Rush Tide is now Cool Template!

June 25th, 2010

We’ve renamed the service from Rush Tide to Cool Template.

Hopefully the new name will be more relevant and easier to remember.

Thank you everyone for continuing to use the service as we evolve.

Rush Tide goes FREE

June 25th, 2010

Rush Tide is now FREE to use, but you must maintain a link back to Rush Tide on every page you use a template on, unless you purchase the right to remove them.

As part of this we have removed restrictions on using the various export types.  You can now use any export.  We’ve also removed restrictions on using textures or logos.  So feel free to use all the features now.

The site will now be supported by banner ads.

See our pricing page for more details.  As a bonus if you purchase the right to remove backlinks you will also remove all the ads from Rush Tide as well.

New Usability Improvements

June 16th, 2010

We’ve revised our edit template interface to simplify and clean up the user experience.  We’ve removed the main site navigation when editing a template and added a close button.

We also tightened up the interface so that it takes up less vertical space.  We’ve optimized and moved around some of the controls to make it even easier to use.

Here is a screen shot of the Old Editor.

And here is the new interface as it exists now.
