Welcoming the Spring Equinox!

3/19/2024 12:14 pm

It is officially spring and it is time to celebrate the warm weather, new growth, and the return of longer days! Today, we have a few new items for you and the return of greenery and flowers to the wilds! Ingots are also on sale and as always, we have a few QoL updates and some notes from our live stream.

 

๐ŸŒผ Spring is Sprung in Hoofbeat Plains!

After many many months of lack of grass and flowers in the wilds, the locals are very happy to welcome the warm weather. Hoofbeat Plains is in full bloom with lush green grass, flower covered bushes, and blossoming trees. Spring is officially here! 

 

๐ŸŒฑ Spring Equinox Dyes

Drum roll please……! Two new spring dyes have joined our collection of dyes, Dandelion and Mint! These two flora themed dyes can now be found while exploring the spring season. 

Also while exploring, you may stumble upon the other spring season dyes; Dusty Green, Orange Crush, Rose Gold, Lavender, and Powder Blue!

 

โœจ Ingot Flash Sale!

To ring in the spring season, ingots are on sale from now until March 21st at 11:59 PM EST/game time enjoy up to 35% off ingot bundles! Stock up while you can, you never know what exciting new ingot items are upon the horizon. ๐Ÿ‘€

 

๐Ÿฅณ Updates from the Live Stream!

Bedouin and I spent some time on March 17 live streaming as we made some QoL changes and went through player development ideas. During the stream, we:

  • Updated breeding clinic storage prices. Slots now cost 25,000 bits and storage is capped at 60. This is down from 100,000 bits per slot and 20 max. Slots also only cost ingots when you reach 30 slots instead of 10.  - Suggestion Link 
  • Changed the top horse list view in the Hall of Fame to display who owns each horse. The page loads equally as fast as before by displaying owner vs. brand. - Suggestion Link
  • Rejected ability to not allow others to brand your home-bred sold horses. However, we added the ability to auto brand home-horses while using your breeding grounds for bronze and higher upgrade tiers. This should help avoid selling home-bred horses who you wanted branded but forgot. This should address the core issue in this suggestion. 
  • Accepted the suggestion to dye roses using a white rose + dye. These will be added soon! - Suggestion Link
  • Accepted the suggestion on organizing tabs. This will first need to be planned on our end. - Suggestion Link
  • Rejected player art market store suggestion since the art forum is best suited for selling art. However, we adjusted the suggestion to make player stores to sell items vs. art - Suggestion Link
  • Accepted the suggestion to sort the club page by player vs. game owned clubs. - Suggestion Link
  • Accepted the suggestion to auto accept breeding requests. This will be done at the tab level and apply to all horses in the tab. More details coming soon. - Suggestion Link
  • Rejected change to removing requirement for training certifications for boarding centers but we will be removing the charge for training at the boarding center’s facility. - Suggestion Link
  • Accepted live stream suggestion of mass crafting based on max total of an item you could craft.
  • Accepted suggestion to remove blocked players' shouts. - Suggestion Link

 

๐ŸฆŸ Bug Squashes

    • Bug #1336 - User log should now show the correct cost for crafting.
    • Bug #1350 - Horse history typo for lab retrieval is now fixed.
  • Attempted Fixes:
    • Bug #1319 - You should now be able to accept new quests.
    • Bug #1312 - You should no longer get “dummy quests” in explore.
    • Bug #1311 - You should now be able to complete wild horse quests.

 

We hope you all have an excellent start to spring!

Cheers,

Bedouin & Curly

Lovely updates! Looking forward to exploring in the spring. I might be able to do quests with spring dyes now that I can find them again.

 

Kinda disappointed about the training centers and boarding. I don't even train at the boarding centers, I train myself so it's silly to be restricted on something I don't use. I am not sure many people do as they can either train themselves or go anywhere to train. You can't even train directly from your boarding centers, you still have to go out of your way to search for them or any center. It just doesn't make any sense the way it is set up.

 

I enjoy the idea of player markets if they work like the general store where people can buy as many as they want. I like the trades but if people want a certain amount it's hard. It would definitely be easier than forums. 

 

I would like to see more parameters to HOF than just levels. Also for clubs to have more purpose. Bonuses, club specific shows, breedings, rankings. More fun and incentive. 

I think my only other real wants is more detailed search and beng able to mass delete mail from the inbox.

Thanks for the spring update ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒฑ

I agree with Maki in regards to clubs having more purpose and value - it'd be cool to have shows run by clubs that give out ranks or a little bit of a bonus to incentivize joining and registering.

sorry for being a bit confused but is that boarding center change saying that if you train a horse at the same place the horse is boarded at then you don't pay a fee? i feel like i'm not getting it exactly

Excited for the spring update and accepting the suggestion of lowering the expansion for breeding clinic, but I'm disappointed the boarding/training certification was rejected. My cousin complains to me that it's ridiculous she is struggling to find cheap/decent boarding fees and I offer $5 across the board for my stalls. I'm finding it hard to find $10 and under for boarding too. Kudos to those that want to spend more on either DIY. Partial or Full. I don't care to. My game plan was to have her board with me but she cannot because I don't have the training certificates high enough level because I find working on them, outside of maxing out Flat Racing, to be an extremely low priority.

Thank you so much for the Spring update - so many exciting things happening!  Thank you so very much for the change in straw/egg storage. Some of my favorite horses are getting older so I am so pleased to have the opportunity to save some straws/eggs from them at a more affordable expansion price. <3

 

Excited to see what you are able to do about the tab suggestion especially. ๐ŸŒท
