Hello! Please read all of this post as it contains some important information. :)
The sidebar chat has been removed from the site. With this, the Discord widget has been added. You do not have to use the Discord widget, but it will be the only form of site chat moving forward. As we anticipate more activity in the next few months, it will be easier to moderate a single place.
I am in the process of working on a new layout for V2 now that there is a bit more space to work with. Look for updates on that soon!
There is now a show log under Stable Management. This will allow you to see the net profits each day for the past 30 days.
Show results on individual horses now show entry fees and are red or green depending on if you made money or not.
Fixed where genetic testing would charge you even if there was no horse selected.
Fixed where the login reward message showed after logging in every time.
Fixed retired horses not showing crossbreed info. This will only be fixed for horses retired from now on.
Only 30 days left until launching publicly and we still have 3 horse breeds to go! Therefore, I'm opening up a 50% off credit sale. That means credits will be $0.25 instead of $0.50 - still with a $5 minimum. Have you been wanting a forever upgrade but can't afford it? Now's the time to get it. :)
Launch Day is getting close! Here's a more detailed outline of our plans as we get closer…
V1 will be moving URLs to v1.eqcetera.com and V2 will replace it on eqcetera.com. This will happen before July 20th and each site will need to be searched for hard-coded URLs such as posts in the forums, news posts, or possibly hard-coded within the site.
Sadly, V1 will be closing on September 1st. This was a very hard decision to reach, and I know there were people who hoped that it would stay open. The code was very outdated which is what prompted the idea for V2 in the first place. Outdated code brings security risks and makes fixing anything very hard. Not only that, we would still need to moderate V1 which would split staff resources.
The user database will still be kept for those who still need to transfer between the two versions.
In more exciting news, there will be a few things going on the week after launch on V2. We're already getting a new breed on that day, but there will also be some festivities. I'll share more details on that as we get closer.
Hello! A long overdue update is here. :)
Quarter Horse art has been added!
There is now the ability to cancel auctions. More specific time has been added for the countdown to the end time. Auctions that have ended now have an obvious message at the top saying they have. All auctions are now ordered by end date so the first ones you'll see are the ones ending soonest.
I've tweaked some things with auctions and end dates so hopefully this squashes most of the bugs.
Breed coins have been added to the credit store and the Magic Horse Token has been removed.
There is now a “remember me” option that will keep you logged in for a week. If you choose this, don't forget to log out in public places.
Added a message at the top of the horse page with a countdown for breeding rest time.
Horses are now removed from stud when they are put up for auction or surrendered to the rescue.
The stud fee not being sent to the person putting the horse up for stud should now be fixed.
Horses can now be fed while they are up for auction.
Login bonus should hopefully be fixed when being logged in between 12 and 1.
Crossbreeds should now show up appropriately on the breeding management page.
Horses should no longer go over the next/previous buttons on mobile.
Horses showing dunskin instead of buckskin should now be fixed.
As always, if you find a bug, let us know! We're on a bug squashing mission. :)
Happy Memorial Day! A couple quick updates. :)
Shetlands now have art! The little fuzzies are so cute.
Regional shows are now being generated by the game.
Horse profiles should now be better on your phone. Let me know if there are any other issues with different phone models.
Don't forget that Friday is the last day to get a Magic Horse Token. All payments to Eqcetera are going towards new horse art to get the last purebred breeds in. :D
Sorry this update wasn't that big. Traveling then family stuff has taken precedence. D: Weekly plans have been updated so I'll be tackling some Eqc stuff this week for a bigger update!
Hello All! Just a small update for you all about objectives and genes!
There are now 30 new objectives for you to explore! BS, PS, and Level objectives have been added!
There is also a post in the lounge for you to respond to about future objectives you would like to see.
Fixed the issue with the grey gene (G) not showing up in Thoroughbreds (Whoops!). All TBs from here on out should not have missing G genes.
