A few updates are below. Please read this and the previous post for information about launch day, changes, and bug reporting.  We will be fixing bugs as fast as we can when they are reported.


Aging

Due to several issues with import, aging has been frozen for all horses until we got more of these fixed.


Showing

Some players began showing before V2 was taken down. We have refunded everyone 5 million since this is roughly the average spent on show fees. Horses must be re-entered in shows for today.


Retired Horses

There were over 1 million retired horses in-game. Due to the database size and amount of deleted retired horse info, retired horses have not carried over. These horses will show as “Foundation” on lineages, even those with offspring. 


Fixed Bug:

  • Stable page not loading horses

Welcome to Eqcetera 3.0!

Welcome to V3! Over the past few months, we have worked really hard to improve Eqcetera into the best experience it can be. Now, we’ve finally made the switch to the new system and can focus on perfecting what we have and introducing new features. Please keep in mind there may be a few bugs to fix and adjustments that need to be made. Your patience is greatly appreciated.


What’s New on V3?

While V3 has the same bones as V2, we’ve greatly improved the experience of the game. There are a few new features, all of which have been documented into an article on the new help site.


🎉 🎉 Changes to V3 🎉 🎉


We’ll outline the most important changes in this post but please read the above article as well. Please note that V3 is built on an entirely different system than V2. This means new bugs even if old V2 ones were fixed. Please be patient as we try to tackle these over the next week.


🐛 Reporting Bugs

Reporting bugs on V3 is a bit different from V2. Under the Community menu, you’ll find a new link called Bug Box. You can submit a bug that will be private between you and staff. Staff will directly communicate to you about that bug. On the Bug Box page, you’ll be able to see known issues and how many times they have been reported. This will be a comprehensive list of all issues staff are aware of, details from multiple players, and the status of it being fixed. We hope this helps streamline the bug reporting process!


With this, the bug forum and #bugs channel in Discord have both been removed. 


💸 V2 Subscriptions

As detailed in the above article, we are changing to a new and improved payment system for V3.


Starting today, Paypal subscriptions will start to be cancelled if they are near their bill date. Don’t worry! Your account will stay upgraded at this time and you should be able to see the end date for your upgrade. As long as you upgrade again before the expiration of your upgrade, your account will remain unchanged. If you do lose your upgrade in this process, you can re-upgrade and get all of your estate purchases reinstated.


💰 Money Slash

When moving over to V3, you received a money slash if you had over $5 mil EQD. This was done on a tiered system below:

  • Less than $5m = No cut

  • $5m- $10m = 30% cut

  • $10m - $100m = 40% cut

  • $100m - $500m = 50% cut

  • $500m - $1b = 60% cut

  • $1b - $5b = 70% cut 

  • Over $5b = 80% cut


💸 Credit Dilution

Credits, now called ingots, are worth less per credit. When coming over to V3, your credits were multiplied by 50. Now, 1 ingot = $0.01 and 100 ingots = $1.00. We hope to introduce them into the economy more in other ways.


💥 Rare Breeds

Rare breeds are still in the works. That said, Marwaris are currently unavailable in the Foundation Store until this new system is put into place.


🐛Transfer Bugs

We are still working on some things! Some things didn’t make the transfer: private messages, associations, and clubs. Don’t worry! These will be in soon. We just weren’t able to get to them today.


All data from V2 is still available to us. If you run into anything that you think should have been transferred but didn’t, let us know in a bug report with as much information as possible.
