Happy June EV! You may have noticed some changes around the site - it's a new month with new updates!
* Studs now have a week long grace period during which they can receive requests, if their owner is not currently rolled over
* Unwanted horses can now be retired from the rescue center by donating the horse to a riding school somewhere out in the world - please note, this action is permanent and irreversible, and will cause the horse to be removed from gameplay (its records will be saved, however)
*The tutorial has now been updated, and comes complete with 30 steps to guide new players through the game
*Mini tutorial popups have also been added - these cover some elements of gameplay that are not in the tutorial, and that can be explained with a short intro (veteran players may see these pop up, but they can easily be dismissed with a click)
*Player IDs are now displayed on homepages, so they are easily locatable
*Specific item splitting has been added, so items that have been compressed can be split up again into different units
*The auction house now features sorting, and you can easily see which auctions you have placed bids on
*Horse search can now be sorted by most recent - please note, horses listed before this was implemented are not sortable (if you wish to see them sorted, please unlist then relist them)
*Horse search allows selection of ++ for KIT genes (aka no KIT markings)
*Rescue center horses can now be sorted by recent - please note this only applies for horse submitted after the change, all others will be sorted alphabetically
*More space for bookmarks has been added, now you can have up to 20 bookmarks in your sidebar instead of the previous 10
Some more updates that have been planned will also be coming your way soon. We're looking into making some larger feature changes happen as well - there is no new word on those at this moment, because these changes were significant, but we'll keep you up to date. :)
Hey EVers, happy May! We've some updates for you!
Gameplay Quality Updates
* Item listings in the market now have a search box for particular items
* The Marketplace can now be filtered in order to display horses, items, or both
* Horse Search now includes an option to see only foundation horses, or exclude them
* Players can now search their bank history for a specific string (action, player/horse name, ID, etc)
* Member search is no longer case-sensitive and should return correct results regardless of capitalization
* Horse and item transfers now have a member name lookup and can include an optional message like EVD and EVC transfers
* Division ordering by total stats was temporarily disabled; it is back for now
* Fixed the wrong season displaying in Leisure Riding; seasons should now reflect the current season in-game
* Prevented Gestation Rush (a defunct item) from being given out by the Fountain
* Fixed inconsistent display of sale, cooldown, and stud/brood icons, which had previously been overriding one another unpredictably
* Fixed minimum bid setting on horses being ignored and allowing bids beneath the minimum
* Fixed the “Board all horses” action accidentally stabling locked horses
That's it for now - you should see bugs resolved in the bug zapper based on this update, and I'll be continuing to monitor suggestions and work on which ones to help bring to you guys next. :)
|Quality of Life Updates|
Hey EVers, this time we're back with some updates for you, and they're something more exciting than bug fixes this time! ;) These are some small changes that should help make gameplay just a little bit smoother for you.
Quality of Life Updates
*An online/offline status indicator has been added to player homepages, and next to the owner name on individual horse pages too
*Items from the General Store can now be purchased in larger quantities than before (20 and 50), given that enough items are in stock (so you can go crazy buying bulk treats)
*A notice will now appear when you level up if you unlock game features upon doing so
*Division lock is now indicated on your division list on your homepage
*Average conformation is now included in horse search results
* Adding new friends and blocking members can now be done from your Friends page
*You can now include a note along with a credit transfer - credit transfers now also require your password to confirm, for security purposes
On Feature Updates
I'm afraid I do not have an update for you at the moment on progress regarding foal art, tack colors, or fields/orchards. We will, however, be moving forward with some of these. I will be sure to keep you apprised on the changes. There is no new info at the moment, but you will all be notified as soon as there is. :)
You may have noticed some hearts and shards around the site, cause it's time to spread some love on Equiverse, with the return of the Valentines event! For this event we have a currency known as Ruby Hearts, which can be crafted from Ruby Shards you will find in random events around the site, as well as in a special Leisure Riding events, so 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 conveniently already open 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! :)
Also - LoveHearts!
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 of fellow players.
Which message are you going to send most? :)
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.
|Happy New Year!|
Happy 2019 EVers! We're excited to be looking forward to another year with you all! Here are some updates to start us off.
The Snowball Fight ended as of the 31st - if you had any Crystallized Snowflakes left over that you didn’t spend, don’t worry, they will show up as credited on your account when the event rolls around again next year. :)
*Items showing zero uses should no longer be displayed in the market
*An issue with clubs sending a message repeatedly regarding an owner change (when ownership didn’t actually change) has been fixed - this was caused by admins being unable to successfully take ownership when the owner was inactive
*Error messages during leisure riding should no longer appear; this was caused by double submissions going through, which has now been prevented
*Items picked up during leisure riding should now appear credited to your inventory successfully
*Searching for studs/broods should no longer show horses that aren’t actually available for stud or brood
*Cases of horse having non-existant backgrounds assigned to them (which in turn prevent new assignments) should no longer occur; if you have a horse that has this existing problem, please submit a ticket from the game support section of the Help page to have it individually fixed
Improve Horse Grades Button
The Improve Horse Grades button was erroneously displayed for basic members, and was reported in the bug zapper multiple times as not working for basic members. This button was actually intended as a deluxe feature so it was behaving as desired - the button has now been removed for basic members to prevent confusion regarding its lack of function. Basic members can continue to improve horse grades as usual by clicking the improve grade button on an individual horse’s page (this is most easily done upon showing, when a notice regarding the need for grade improvement will be displayed for each horse, and after tasks that will contribute to grade increase, like training).
