Fall Leaves!
Fall Leaves
The Fall Leaves event is here! As you move around the site you will discover Pristine Leaves, which are the special currency for this event! When you see the notice pop up at the top of the site, be sure to click the button to collect your leaf!

It won't automatically be collected for you, so be sure to pick it up. :)

Also, every so often when you visit a player's page you will see a prompt to help clean up their yard by sweeping up all of the fallen leaves. In doing so, you may discover 2-4 additional Pristine Leaves as a reward for your good work!

Throughout the event you will have the ability to convert your collected Pristine Leaves into money (EVD), with an exchange rate of 10 per $1,000. We hope to have an event shop available in the future, however, so if you wish to save your leaves from this year to put towards some goodies later on, they will wait safely in your account until then.

The event page where Fall Leaves is listed can be found by hovering over News, just under Polls in the dropdown menu. Go forth and collect some leaves!

The event will end at 11:59pm site time on November 30th, so be sure to trade in all the leaves you wish to by then!

Foal Art!
Foal Art
Something big (but small) is here! The long-awaited foal art has arrived! :D

All horses under a year of age will now show up in their tiny baby form! Each set of foal art is shared in common across a couple of breeds, since babies do tend to look similar, but all the distinct markings, colors, etc specific to each breed will be properly shown for each of the little ones. :)

The foal art update has been applied to all the following locations:
*Horse pages
*Equine Center
*Foal preview (a button has been added to toggle adult view)
*Inventory wardrobe
*Custom horse creator

Backgrounds and non-horse accessories can still be applied to foals. Horse-specific decors (like wings or the Christmas cloak) cannot be equipped to foals, since the art is only for grown horses. Any such items that you have equipped to a foal right now will stay equipped (but invisible), and will show up again when the horse ages out of the foal art.

*Horse under three are no longer listed in the Tack Room, since they cannot have tack equipped

Tack Room
Happy Saturday EVers! We have some updates!

* The tack room has been added, in the dropdown menu under the home link
- Here you can manage your tack assignments for horses, and see which horses are equipped, and check the level and durability of their tack pieces as well
- Clicking a piece of tack or a no tack image will open a dropdown menu that will list compatible tack, including a type to search function
* More options have been added to the bug zapper
- Awaiting review, need more information, not a bug, not reproducible
- Also includes a list of bug recently closed for reasons other than resolution
- Expiration date for resolved bugs has been increased so they are viewable for longer

* Single treats can now be converted into bags/crates/bundles, as long as you have at least five of the treat item
* Players that have friend requests disabled will no longer have the request button show up next to their name in the online members list
* Repeated names in a pedigree are now bold and in red

Bug Fixes
* Seasonal driving track background not displaying has been fixed
* The blocking feature still allowing messages through has been fixed; new or current one-to-one messages will not be allowed
- This does not effect group conversations, however - we advise leaving these conversations instead
* Clicking the news author’s name no longer will lead to your own page

More should be coming soon, and we also have the Fall Leaves event coming up a little later this month. :)

Beginning of the Month Updates
Hey EVers, it's a new month and we have some updates for you hot off the press!

Bug Fixes
*The Shetland Pony art showing a broken image for the star marking has been fixed
*The fountain will no longer produce an error when attempting to give stats to locked horses
*Editing horse notes will no longer shows a buggy confirmation message
*Colors for horses submitted for club registration will now show up correctly

*Specialty selection now requires confirmation, to prevent accidental specialty assignments
*The max show fee selected for show entry will now stick between form submissions
*Posts can be flagged for deletion now from the post editing view - this will allow moderators to easily manage deletions

Feature Changes
*Base stats are now publicly visible in the Pedigree, Breeding, and Foals section of each horse's page
*There is now a very rare chance of a mare naturally having twins
*Mass board payment for horses has been added - you can pay a week for all horses by using the Pay Board button on a division from your Horses page, or visit an individual division to choose to pay board for up to four weeks (similar to the options for paying board from an individual horse page)
*A 'Legends' section has been added to the Hall of Fame, to show the best of EV's horses across time
*You can now unregister a horse from a club, from the club horses section
*Autocare now specifies which treats are missing, and how many
*The rarity of sugar and hay cubes has been adjusted, so they should appear less frequently

New Poll
A new poll has been added - its purpose is to find out which time most players are online, so we can gauge the best timing for bi-monthly listening sessions that are planned. These would involve the chance for feedback, updates, discussion of topic questions, and more. Please vote so we know which time of day will work best. :)

If you wish to follow along on coming updates, please check out the Development Roadmap on the forums! This is your guide to what's coming up next, and how changes are moving along. Happy EVing!

Missed Progressions
Hey everybody - I'm sure you all noticed progressions have not been working quite right. Cron did not run on its own yesterday (Sunday) due to conflict with recent updates (caused by differences between how Cron works on the live site versus beta). Cron had to be forced, which caused it to run 12 hours later than usual, which meant some members missed their progression yesterday.

Cron had to be manually forced today as well, but it ran only an hour later than usual. Unless you happened to log in before that manual run, your account will properly progress today. Login streak reset was disabled for this progression, so your login streak days will be saved, and you'll be able to pick up where you left off.

I apologize for this inconvenience - it was an unexpected hitch, as sometimes happens with technology. As a thank you for your patience, everyone who has been online in the past three days (Saturday, Sunday, and today) will receive a free Sunset Beach background decor. Thank you for your understanding. Since we're aware of this conflict now, we know to keep an eye out.
