Manual Account Progression
I am currently trialing a new method for our daily cron.

Currently cron just runs. At 4am EV time every day it ages horses, and all the rest. With the new method, cron will not run in its entirety. The majority of the cron will be triggered when you log onto your account for the first time after 4am and click a button specifically asking to progress your account. Only then will your horses age, lose hunger, etc.

This means that technically you can just not progress your account. Your horses would be safe until the next time you did choose to progress. If you ever need a couple of days away from the game, or are rushed into hospital, and can't access your account so that you can lock it - no problem, the game will essentially freeze everything with this new method.

Instead of making it immediately site-wide and encountering possibly a ton of bugs all at once, I've decided to - for now - make it an opt in system. Basically I need at least 10+ regular players to opt into the new system, keep track of everything that you do, and make sure that all notifications show up (horse care, showing activity, foal notifications), that nothing dies if you don't log in for a few days, etc.

To opt in: go to your Home page, go to your Account Settings, and there is a new dropdown box for "Opt In to Manual Cron". Select "Yes" and update your settings.

This will eventually be applied to every account, and it will not be an option to stay with the old method. I am only allowing an opt in for the bug testing that will be needed.

If you find any bugs, please post them here

I hope I've explained everything well, but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

What is cron? Cron is what makes your horses age, become a bit hungry, and reset daily limits like showing/riding as well as training. It's also in control of making your Deluxe/auto-showing/auto-care days tick down, it births foals, checks to see if any horses have been uncared for so a notice can be sent out, etc.

Valentines Shop
It seems as though there was some misunderstanding that the event ending at 11:59 on the 15th would mean the event shop would stay open. Please let me be clear that for any future events, ANYTHING event related will close as soon as the event ends.

That being said, seeing as this was the first one, I've re-opened the shop for TODAY ONLY. You will only be able to access it from this link, not in the "News" dropdown like before.

Valentines Shop

Also, if you don't manage to spend anything, your hearts will carry over to next year - they will not be reset :)

Valentines Shop is Open
A day early, the Valentines Day Shop has been opened and the items inside have been revealed!

And with the opening of this shop, a new feature has been released - Decorations! Beyond regular tack, we are tentatively adding in decorations. We've started small to gauge a reaction from you, but with the scope to expand the decoration selection immensely.

The decorations released for the Valentines Event are:

Love Birds, Doves and Petals

Decorations can be viewed in action on this horse.

Alongside the decorations, the Valentines Plushie is available!

We also have 3 new Special items:

Love Potion - Acts as a Gestation Rush and BreedAgain Solution combined.
Valentine's Rose - Apply this to a mare before breeding her, and her next foal will be guaranteed to be female.
Valentine's Thorn - Apply this to a mare before breeding her, and her next foal will be guaranteed to be male.

All the above items and their prices can be found on the Events page which can be found under the News link on the navigation bar.

Edit: I fixed a lot of stuff okay :P Events page link is fixed and the horse should actually show the decorations now.

Valentines Day!
It's Valentines!
It's that lovey-dovey time of year on Equiverse! Get out all your favourite loved-up tags for the event ;)

All around the game are little events to help you collect a new type of currency - Ruby Hearts! Ruby Hearts (RH) can be created out of Ruby Shards which can be found in several events around the game - but also in Leisure Riding. In fact, there are now quite a few Valentines-themed events available in Leisure Riding. To help you find more, the cooldown in between riding your horses has been reduced from 30 minutes to 15 minutes.

When you have collected enough Ruby Hearts, you will be able to purchase special items with them from the Event shop. The shop can be found by clicking on the Event link under the "News" dropdown on the navigation bar.

Items in this shop will become available from the 12th February!

Just as a little fun addition, you can give a LoveHeart to other members on the game! You can give away an unlimited amount, but you can only give one LoveHeart per person.

There's no advantage to having many, they're just a nice gesture to give to your friends :)

This event will end on the 15th February at 11:59pm game time.

DNA Tweaks and Brood Mares!
DNA Tweak Items!
3 new items have been added to the game! They are DNA Tweaks, and they can alter specific genes in your horse's genotype. If you wanted that Silver gene, but didn't want to pay out for a fully customised horse - now you can!

They are for sale in the Credit Shop for 2 EVC each, and the genes that can be altered so far are Silver, Sooty and Pangare!

You can now put your mares up for "Brood" - the same options as studding are available, so she can be a private or public brood mare.

If a stallion is bred to your brood mare, she will become pregnant for 5 days after which time the foal will be born and will be instantly delivered to the stallion owner's account. The same cooldown as normal applies to brood mares, so unlike studding they can't be repeatedly bred to. They will remain up for brood throughout the cooldown for convenience but will be unable to breed.

Bugs Fixed
* Club Mega Shows should now be working correctly with the new show system.
* You should now be able to edit topics with apostrophes and quotation marks in the subject without fear of the subject being wiped.
* There was an issue with boarding horses at stables which had space, yet the error message would say the stables were full. This is now fixed.
* Horse colors on the Divisions page should now accurately reflect their graying status.
* Basic accounts having their friend requests disabled should no longer happen.
* Searching for horses with a minimum conformation value set should now keep the conformation value further than page 1 of search results.
* Pangare will now show up on Bay bases.
* Clicking on a member's name from Club Bank history should no longer be a broken URL.
* Clicking on a horse's name from your Credit History should no longer be a broken URL.

Minor Changes
* The display of horses in divisions has been adjusted slightly for better readability.
* Purchasing an increase on your horse limit will now detail the amount of slots you increased to.
