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!

Dressage Tack Colors!
Happy almost Halloween EV, it’s update time!

Tack Colors!
The first installment of the tack colors update is here - dressage tack! We’re working on adding tack colors discipline by discipline in order of popularity, so western is slated to be coming to you next! (We’re fixing headstall art errors along with the western tack color update too)



To dye your tack items, simple purchase dyes in the General Store, then head on over to the Tack Workshop to have the workers dye your tack for you!

There are three leather dye colors (black, brown, and russet) you can use to dye saddle and bridle leather, and there are 10 cloth dye colors you can use on saddle pads/cloth: silver (the existing default color), red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink, purple, charcoal, and cream!



Saddle pads have received a new texture with this update, so your existing dressage saddles will have a new look too!

Leather dyes cost $750 each and cloth dyes cost $500 each, and dye bottles come with 5 uses. The dyeing process requires one use of dye and costs $250 in the Tack Shop to have applied.

Make sure to keep an eye on your tack’s repair level when it is dyed, as tack will lose its color if it reaches 15% repair, and will then cost an additional $100 to repair and redye.

Along with the dyeing update, colorful tack now has its colors included both in the item name and in its icon as splashes of color! The color names and splotches should help you more easily identify tack that has been dyed, so you can equip it to the horse of your choice!

Please note that the auto-equipper will still prioritize equipping tack with the best stats, so it will not necessarily choose the color you want in automatically applying equipment. If you wish your horse to have a specific tack color, you can either equip tack manually, or equip the best tack to your horse and then apply dye to it. For now, it is easiest to dye tack that is not equipped, or unequip tack then dye it, as the query for getting both all your tack and its associated horses would be heavy - we will work on a solution to make it easier to see which horses have which tack but for now, either unequipping, dyeing, and reequipping or dyeing unequipped tack will be simplest.

Updates
*Added seed and dye categories to inventory
*Added dyes to the general store - cloth dyes for fabric/saddle pads, leather dyes for saddle/bridle leather
*Added dyeing to the tack workshop (only applicable for dressage tack right now)
*Increased sponsorship money has been added to shows, meaning higher show earnings have arrived! Large shows will attract sponsors, who will contribute sponsorship money based on the grade, fees, and participants of the show; this money will then be distributed to winners.
*Added more details to horses in trade, including gender and full color (no room to include confo as well)
*Added public notes to divisions; the editor for these is below the private notes editor, and the public notes will show at the top of the division when viewing the division page (notes have been left off of the longer Your Horses page, to save scrolling time)
*Tack level and grade are now visible on tack being sold in the marketplace

Bug Fixes
*Fixed items belonging to user #0 being for sale in the item market
*Fixed the farmstead overview saying weeding is needed when it isn’t, all farmstead messages should work properly now
*Fixed divisions not keeping their sorting for show entry, other dropdown menus

October Listening Session
Just an announcement for everyone!

October Listening Session
The October listening session is tomorrow (Oct 28th)! Join us in our Discord channel starting at 12:00 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 and the listening session channel history will be available to review in Discord as well.

Please note you must be 13 or older in order to create a Discord account, if you haven't one already.

Here are the topics we will be discussing in this session:

* Auction house
- Add starting bid
- Include game generated horses
- Change the player level limit for access (it’s currently level 10)
- Ability to feature a horse for sale
- Change to have horse sold only at the auction house, items only at the market? If so, will have to be able to auction horses for credits as they are sometimes sold for credits in the market
- Add raffle feature to the auction house - more opportunities for all players to have a chance at a horse
-- Raffle special/interesting game-generated horses?
- Better sorting (stats, bids, etc)
- Option to auction horse and have it retired if it doesn’t sell
* Soft Equine Center cap
- 50 or 100 per day or week max?
- Another option would be to not cap, but add a price jump
- Buy EC horses in bulk - limit for this?
* On-site chat
- It may be possible to integrate an on-site chat capacity
- Would there be interest in this?
- Would we want to host listening sessions there instead to allow more members (ie those who don’t have/want discord) to participate?

New Credit Items!
Heyo everyone! New credit items are here!

Face and Leg Marking Randomisers and Applicators
We have four fun new items waiting for you in the Credit Shop! Now you can choose to set face and leg markings randomly, or (if you like blazes or four white socks on your horses, or something else) you can apply them however you like!

Here are the new item names:

Face Marking Randomiser
Face Marking Applicator
Leg Marking Randomiser
Leg Marking Applicator


(Preview of using the Leg Marking Applicator)

Along with this update, we've tweaked the way leg and face markings are displayed on horse pages, so no marking will simply display as “-“ rather than none. A bug which allowed leg markings to be selected for Friesians in the custom horse creator has also been fixed.

Tack Colors!
And more happy news - the first installment of the Tack Colors implementation, which is dressage tack, is ready to go for our next update!



Keep an eye out for the coming update - it's time to start planning those tack customizations! :)

Happy EVing!
