Hello everyone! Just a quick announcement!
We will be having a discord chat party this Sunday at 7 pm EST. Everyone is invited to join. We always enjoy player input, ideas, and discussion to help make Eqc the best it can be.
We hope to see you there!
Yay, bug fixes!
We've tackled some of the bugs you guys have been seeing.
If you breed a crossbreed with another crossbreed of the same name, you should now appropriately have a foal of the same breed.
Rabicano should now show up for Arabians. If your horse does not show, let Bedouin or me know and we'll manually fix it.
On the same note, rabicano is now available for breeds with rabicano in the custom generator.
Fixed boarding list where it was showing boarders who had no space. Those with no space no longer show up. Number of remaining boarding stalls now show up in the drop down as well.
Shows should now have appropriate numbers generated each night. If this is not the case, please let us know!
Splash should now generate correctly for all breeds from the custom generator. If you have a Shetland with a leopard gene, please let us know and we'll fix it manually.
Stud fee is now exchanged through money on hand instead of bank money.
Stud fee price has been added to the top of a horse's page if it is up for stud.
Stud breeding has now been fixed to include all mares, regardless of breed.
The number of item uses has been added to the credit store.
The offspring list now shows generic crossbreeds appropriately.
Thank you everyone for being patient as we fix bugs you find. All bug reporting and testing help is appreciated!
Happy Saturday! Updates coming your way. :)
It's here! You can now use the custom tokens you received when you transferred your V1 account. This item has been renamed to the Magic Custom Token and will only be available for a limited time in the credit store. After this token becomes unavailable, breed specific tokens will start to be released. To use the token, you must “use” the item which will take you to the custom generator.
More new art! Arabians now have their own art.
New Credit Item
A new item is in the credit store - The Magnifying Glass. This item has 5 uses and allows you to reveal the BS of foals before they reach the age of 2.
They're finally functional! However, there have been some changes. All players start off with the ability to make 3 shows each day. Basic players can purchase the Small Show Arena to increase that number to 6. Upgraded players can purchase the 3 expansions which add 3 each to the total hosted shows allowed. This allows for upgraded players to host a max of 15 shows per day.
This had to be re-evaluated to make sure that people could not host 50 shows and get tons and tons of money just from that.
Lethal overo now works. If your horses breed and generate an FrFr foal, it will tell you that the foal didn't make it. This happens before stud fees and breeding rest is set so you should be able to try again immediately. This may change in the future though.
The bank has had a face lift. Now, only the most recent 10 bank transactions show. If you want to see more, you can go over to a page with only bank transactions. Bank transactions should also now properly delete after 30 days.
Messages have been fixed! You should now see any past messages in your inbox.
You will now receive money if you accept a bid.
You can no longer brand over a horse's brand if it's already set.
The silver dapple layer has been fixed for the default images.
The stud fee has been added to the horse's profile.
The day is here! The first breed, the FRIESIAN, has been released for actual breed art. We've found a wonderful artist in Solo and unlike V1, we'll be able to fix any color issues or anything we need as V2 is developing.
I've also knocked out some bugs listed below.
Geldings should no longer appear in the breedable horses list.
Fixed a bug where you couldn't join associations.
You can no longer auto buy your own auctions.
Fixed where offspring list was showing the wrong breed.
Fixed issue with brand resets. Backtracked and gave everyone from pre-beta a brand reset.
You can no longer offer negative money or credits in an auction.
Removed stable management link if you're viewing someone else's stable.
You can no longer genetic test horses that you do not own.
It is now noted in the breeding section whether the mom or dad has been retired (this was causing it to appear that the horse did not have a sire or dam).
I'll continue going through bug reports and trying to get everything we have on V2 more stable and consistent. :D
Thank you everyone for playing! It's been a great way to tweak the economy and get feedback. If anyone has any suggestions on more ways to earn money, we're all ears. There are a couple ideas being thrown around, but the more the merrier. :D
The show winnings have been increased slightly. The same type of formula still applies as before. Hopefully, the guide above will help explain how showing and stats work. To give less importance to BS, more PS is given in training so horses with worst BS will still have some chance in showing. Finally, shows have been increased from 5 to 10 default shows created per day.
Breedings can now fail! If a breeding to a stud fails, you get a 50% refund. If you experience too high of a fail rate, let us know and it can be adjusted. Based on feedback, cooldown for both mares and stallions has been reduced to 6 and 3 hours respectively. There is also a list of offspring on horse profiles. :D
For funsies, with all the spreadsheets going around, I created a breeding management page in your stable management. This lists all horses with their BS, PS total, levels, and links to their sire and dam. Hopefully, this will make it slightly easier to plan breedings without having to visit each page. It excludes horses that are not eligible to breed.
This is going to be one of the next focuses of the game. We hope to give a lot more capabilities to associations and have them play a larger role in the game than V1. Because of this, player made associations will be limited. An Association Key will be purchasable as an item and could become unavailable if there are too many associations.
Player made associations will focus on breeds. Game associations will focus on disciplines. There is now an association for each discipline. Only horses of that discipline can join.
More features such as presidents and side chat stuff will be added in the upcoming weeks!
Shetlands are now available!
We've been working on squashing as many bugs as we could throughout the week so some of these have probably already been live for a while.
Forums are now fixed!
Fixed issue where crossbreeds were disappearing if the parents weren't an approved match.
Fixed some issues with the auction house where there was an error with not enough money and the appropriate amount of money and credits weren't getting deducted from sellers and buyers.
Fixed an issue where you couldn't rename horses.
Changed wording on the points page to make a bit more sense.
Fixed the boarding list.
