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!
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!
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:
*Foal preview (a button has been added to toggle adult view)
*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
