Polls & Your Opinions?

← Back to News

So I've been back from my honeymoon for 3 weeks now. It was fantastic, and I thank you all for your suggestions on what to do and where to go!

Since I've been back, I've run into a bit of a conundrum. You'll see below.

New Features
* Polls are back! News > Polls.

So to elaborate on New Features being such a short list - I am currently working on about 5 different things. I keep getting distracted between them, so I decided to code Polls instead and try to get your opinions on which one I should prioritise. Basically, which one would you like to see added this side of Christmas?

A link to polls for the lazy ;)

I am also working on smaller updates as well (never fear!), but these are the next few *big* updates that I want to add. I have a couple of secret updates to come as well, which I obviously won't poll for your opinions because they are secret ;D.

Bug Fixes
* Stallions can no longer be gelded while they are up for stud or sale/private auction.

I have been working on converting the current genetics system to create the genotype of a new horse from the Equine Center as well as storing the "allowed" genes in a breed. The actual details won't mean much to most people, but basically there will be a bit more variety to what colors/markings (and the genes for those colours and markings) can be acquired from the Equine Center. This includes "rare" genes such as silver and champagne. They will be extremely rare, but they will be available from the EC when this system is implemented.

In order to make sure that I haven't missed any genes from breeds, if you are familiar with genetics, please check the breeds you are most familiar with from the Statistics page. If you click on a breed name, it will now list all the available genes for that breed according to the new system. If anything is missing (e.g. the custom horse tool says Akhal-Teke should have cream, but the new system doesn't), please comment on this news post.

This also makes it easier for me to add "allowed" genes to breeds, for example, Silver and Sooty for Gypsy Vanner. Previously I would need to edit the code in about 5 different places for each new allowed gene. Once this code is implemented, I should be able to just add it and it will automatically update everywhere.

I am the worst at explaining things, I'm sorry.

Awesome news! Very excited to hear the auction house and crops are on the agenda for the near future. :D I hope your mention of silver and sooty for the gypsies means we might be getting that soon. That would be amazing!

I should have voted for those individual show results but the idea of crops won my vote. It's all good so long as all are planned eventually.

I also await the addition of white patterns for Morgans. Frame, splash white, sabino: Oh my.

I was wondering, will pearl be added too the gene pool at some point? I would just die to have a pearl Andalusian, haha. :P

Omg Abbey you're awesome also WHY are more people not voting for individual show results?!?!? I don't think you understand how AMAZING it would be to have the "Your Activity" page be a little more utilize-able
