Summer Stargazing!
Summer Stargazing
The Summer Stargazing event is back! The event was introduced for the first time two years ago, so we're on our third year! If you are new to the event, it features a character named after the constellation Pegasus, a findable item (Stardust), and a unique event currency called Stars.

Pegasus will request your help in collecting Stardust, and will trade you 2-4 Stars in exchange for a given number of Stardusts you have collected. You can find Stardust exclusively in Leisure Riding encounters, and not anywhere else on the site, so saddle up your horses!



Head on over to the Event page, under the News dropdown or linked in the sidebar, to visit Pegasus.

Leisure Riding locations will display the new backgrounds that have been added for this event, in place of their routine art, but will still display their usual encounter text. This means you will still see beach encounter events when you choose the beach locale, but you’ll see a different event-only background in place of the beach.



The event shop is scheduled to open on August 7th, and will have a variety of items that you can purchase using the Stars you get from exchanging Stardusts with Pegasus. The event will run until midnight (EV Time) on the 15th, so be sure to make your event shop purchases before then. Any event currency you have left over after the event has ended will remain in your account and will be usable next year. :)

More Fly Sheets and Halters!
Happy Wednesday EVers! We have a couple of updates today!

Updates
*Added riding school icon, which shows if a horse has been entered into a riding school (note this only shows that the horse has been submitted; it does not indicate completion)
*Normal fly sheets and halters, available in classy black and white, are now available in the General Store


(The featured background is from the August event shop)

*The landing page now is restyled like the old hub, and includes your activity, the recent news posts, your farmstead's status, a yard overview, and a random horse for sale



*Speciality settings are available on player pages, for players who have reached level 10 - these are searchable in the player search and include preferences for breed, discipline, and focus

Bug Fixes
*Fixed apple trees not being plantable in farmsteads during the on-site fall season
*Fixed brown perlino dun displaying incorrectly on mustangs in the custom horse creator
*Fixed message center inaccessibility due to large message history (messages older than six months are now viewable via an archive)

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for our next event, Summer Stargazing, which returns very soon, on August 1st!

July Listening Session
July Listening Session
The July listening session is scheduled for this Saturday (the 25th) in our Discord channel (accessible here) starting at 12:00 Equiverse server time. The session will go up to 90 minutes long, or until it draws to a natural close.

The listening session is a chance for us to communicate with each other. There will be discussion topics and questions, and also open time where you, the players, can ask questions. We will discuss upcoming updates, developments, and more! If you can't make it to the meeting, a summary will be posted to the forums later and the listening session channel history will be available to review in Discord as well.

Please note you must be 13 or older in order to create a Discord account, if you haven't one already.

Below is a summary of the topics we will cover this session:

* Optimization, return to search during entering riding school process
* More details on horses in trade, including color, confo, and pattern
* Talk about luxury money sink features
* Colorful tack - implementation process (in sections?), how to go about in terms of disciplines, breeds, and colors
* Club updates, what needs fixing, how can we make them better (club chat, polls, etc)
* Leisure riding, discuss success of updates and future improvements
* Owner defined breeding cap for studs
* Visible foal training progress
* Public notes for divisions (or ability to toggle notes to private or public)
* Ability to ‘lock’ stallion against gelding, possibly tick box on page

Auto Riding Completion and Search Updates!
Updates
*The auto riding school completion (auto riding) feature has been added - this credit add-on will allow horses submitted to riding schools to be picked up in batches of ten to make the process easier



*Stable search improvements have been made, including an option to exclude full stables, more sorting options, and public stables only showing by default
*Horse search improvements are here, including options to choose all specialities except one, search by max non-specialty stats, search only horses with currently active owners, find offspring of horse by id, searching by age range, and the option to choose to search by hetero or homozygous dominance for a given gene
*Color has been brought back to the horse search, and colors will now search based on the horse’s genes rather than their displayed color name (which should provide more accuracy). Please note that when searching for underlying colors, white or grey horses will not show in the search unless they have been gene tested, regardless of their age. You can, however, search separately for horses that are white.



*Better marketplace and item listing sorting have been added: tack, backgrounds, and horse decors now show in their separate categories, inventory categories are used in both locations for consistency, tack can be sorted by level and discipline, and food and treats are now shown in one ‘consumable’ category (as in the inventory). To use category search in the marketplace, select items for the search parameter, then select a category.
*Search for forum posts has been improved, including better keyword search, and within the Your Posts section you can sort by activity or post date, and narrow by board as well

Bug Fixes
*Problems with the stable search that cropped up in the course of updating it have been resolved

The next listening session will be held today at 13:00 site time in Discord, so feel free to join us! More details are in the previous news post. Happy EVing!
