|March Listening Session|
March Listening Session
The March listening session is scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday the 28th) in our Discord channel starting at 10:00 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.
Please note you must be 13 or older in order to create a Discord account, if you haven't one already.
Happy March EV! We have some updates!
*A small degree of random decrease, in the form of a percent range, has been added to non-specialty stats resulting from breeding. This will allow a chance for NSS to decrease beyond the previous lower limit. To clarify, this random chance only decreases the NSS - it does not allow any chance of increase, just decrease only.
*Holiday-specific plushies will now be available in the general store on their specific day, at an elevated price, with a purchase limit of one per user. This includes the New Year's, April Fool's, Easter, Halloween (Witch), Thanksgiving, and Lucky plushes.
*These plushies also have a rare chance of being findable via Leisure Riding on their respective days (the Lucky plush can be findable throughout the year as well, since luck can happen any day c:). If you do find the plush in riding, however, it will count towards the 'one per account' rule, so you won't be able to buy it too. Plushies you purchased on old EV won't count towards this rule though, only new plushie acquisitions on this version of the site count towards this one per user limit.
*Selecting a foal in the Equine Center then creating that foal will no longer reset the displayed horse art to be an adult (incorrectly reflecting your sticky horse age selection).
*The displayed files on some foal art swapping dominance for sabino has been fixed, so SbSb and Sbsb will show properly now.
*The Love Potion's functionality has been updated, as it previously birthed foals immediately (when there had been a waiting period for foals to be born). Since foals now birth immediately, this item has been updated to simply skip a mare's breeding cooldown instead.
*Removing horses from stud/brood or having a horse die while still available for breeding now causes any unfulfilled breeding requests for that horse to be refunded.
*The post preview on the forums displaying improperly has been fixed.
*Event item collection during Leisure Riding causing unexpected problems has been fixed. These site-wide prompts will no longer appear during the course of riding - only riding-specific event messages will occur.
*Bank history listing stud requests wrong has been fixed.
*Silver files for horse art are in the progress of receiving updates, and should be finalized in time for our next news update.
*Work on getting farms/orchards, now collectively referred to as farmsteads, ready for beta testing is underway. Specifics are being worked out, including how seasons will interact with this feature. There will be an announcement when we are ready for players to start testing this feature on the Beta version of the site.
Happy EVing everybody! :)
You may have noticed some hearts and shards around the site, cause it's time to spread some love on Equiverse with the Valentines event! For this special event we have a currency known as Ruby Hearts, which can be crafted from the Ruby Shards you will find both in random events around the site, as well as in Leisure Riding. Saddle up those pixel ponies!
Each Ruby Heart is composed from five Ruby Shards - you can convert your shards into hearts on the Event page. Once you have enough Ruby Hearts accumulated you will be able to make purchases from the event shop, which is already available to you. :)
If you were here for the event previously, any Ruby Shards left on your account will be credited to you, so you can start using them to create Ruby Hearts right away!
Now go out there and collect those shards! :)
Along with shard collecting and the event shop, LoveHearts are back! LoveHearts are a cute little heart candy image that have a message, and you can give them freely to any member by visiting their home page. The only limit is that you can only give one to any given member, so be sure to choose the message you want! Collecting and sending them has no benefit, but they're a fun way to express your love and appreciation for fellow players.
Which message are you going to send most? :)
Please note - any LoveHearts that were sent before this post had to be cleared, as hearts from last year were still in the system. Feel free to resend any hearts that you already may have distributed!
Note: This event will end on the 15th February at 11:59pm game time, event shop included, so be sure to spend your Ruby Hearts before then! If you forget, any remaining event currency will stay credited to your account as in previous years, so you'll be able to spend it later too.
Issues with some tack images have been fixed - these include:
*Gypsy Vanner racing saddle
*Gypsy Vanner western bridle
*Gypsy Vanner western saddle
*Gypsy Vanner show jumping bridle
*Paint show jumping bridle
These items will now display properly, and any missing files have been added in.
The sabino files being swapped for the Ahkal-Teke/Arab/Welsh foal art have been fixed as well.
There is also a new poll available! This particular poll is on the question of how long you would like foal art to be shown for horses. Currently the foal art shows for horses under one year of age. The poll questions whether you would like to stick with this option, or show the art for horses under two years of age, or show it until the horses reach the age of three.
Happy almost New Year's EVers! It's time to reveal some updates!
New decor items in team-themed colors are now available in the unlocked Snowball Fight shop! Head on over to spend your Crystallized Snowflakes - don't forget, the event ends at midnight server time on the 31st, so spend your currency before then! If you end up with Snowflakes left over, never fear, they will remain credited to your account and will be there for you next year. :)
*Keyword search function has been added to the bug zapper
*Discipline is now displayed along with other horse info in divisions
*The marking applicator now has a 'none' option, which will wipe all markings
*Clarification has been added to decors that apply only to grown horse art (it will not be displayed on foals - if equipped to a foal, these items will show up when the horse ages)
*Item listings now have separate categories for equippable items: tack and decorations
*Foal art that was bigger than the adult for the breed has been sized down
*Halter and fly sheet display issues have been corrected
That's all for now, have a happy new year!
The Snowball Fight is Back!
Our December Snowball Fight event has returned! Starting the 15th and running through the 31st, join your team and lob snowballs at opposing members for a place on top of the leaderboard! Collect snow you will find randomly around the site and add to your pile of available snowballs! Teams - red, green, or blue - are assigned randomly, so don't forget to check who your new allies are!
Throughout the event you will see a message randomly popping up at the top of the page, indicating that you have found a pile of snow. By clicking the button that is displayed, you can create your very own snowball to add to your arsenal. You can see your current status as relates to snowballs collected, thrown, and more in the sidebar, beneath your team banner, whose color indicates your team.
You will also run across Crystallized Snowflakes in this event! This currency can be found at random and can be used at the event shop, which will unlock once we've reached the goal for snowballs thrown. You can find on the Event page either by clicking the Snowball Fight link in the sidebar, under your current stats, or in the dropdown under News. The shop requires snowball throws to open, so get out there and start collecting snow! Some fun winter-themed items await you in the shop!
The event starts now and will run until midnight EV server time on the 31st. Any leftover Crystallized Snowflakes you haven't spent by the end of the event will remain credited to your account, so they will be around for you next year.
Please note, if you're a deluxe member with a full layout page, you can add [snowballbox] to your page to display the box beneath your layout (it may be covered up otherwise) so that members will be able to throw snowballs at you! :)
Happy battling EVers!
