Dev Update: QoL Additions, Fixes, and Bug Squishes!
Posted by Curly
Friday, September 18, 2020 (2 Comments)

Happy Friday everyone! We have been busy working on bug fixes and additions.

 

🏆 Enter All II

The Enter All II is now available in the newly renamed Ingot Store! The Enter All II allows you to enter all eligible horses directly from the show page. Depending on your herd, this could potentially save many clicks. Purchasing the first Enter All is required before purchasing the Enter All II.

 

💪 Training Manual II

The Training Manual II is also now available! Like the Enter All II, it requires the Training Manual first. The TM2 allows for training settings to be saved per horse. This was something that has been available to everyone since V3 launch, but it’ll no longer be available if you don’t have the Training Manual II. 

 

All training settings for horses have been reset to 5 primary and 0 secondary. For those with the TM2, you will see disciplines start saving again after purchase.

 

There is now a new page found under the Estate menu: Estate Overview. For those with the TM2, you’ll see a log of when all your horses were last trained and the stats they gained. If you don’t have the TM2, you’ll see a coming soon message. Don’t worry; we have a lot of plans for this page!

 

🔃 Sort By Setting

The Sort By setting has been brought back! This setting can be found in Estate Settings and can be toggled between sorting horses by ID or by tab. Clicking through your horses is now much easier!

 

🔀 Enter All: Randomly Enter Shows

You can now randomly enter shows. When defining your Enter All settings, you can choose to sort OR randomly enter but not both. Randomly entered shows will still meet other set criteria such as entry fee and number of entrants.

 

📋 Register Horses in Associations

You can now register horses in associations! We’re working on adding back in the rest of the functionality for associations and clubs, and we thank you for your patience as we work on bringing over the rest of the features from V2. 

 

Horses no longer have stars if they are not a member of a breed association. However, a change from V2 is that registered crossbreeds now have their own association! 

 

💰 My Auctions Pages

You can now see your current auctions in both the Horse Market and Auction House. 

 

🏆 Show Data Change

Horse performance stats are now stored when they are entered into a show. This will prevent horses from being trained in between the time they enter and the time shows run. During this time, horses could be moving up into a different level which is unfair to all other entrants in the show. Now, this is prevented because the stats are “frozen” at the time of entry.

 

➕ Small Additions

  • You can now see in the Ingot Store whether you have purchased the Enter All, Enter All II, Training Manual, or Training Manual II.

  • The Auction House and Horse Market now display a message if there are no auctions.


🐛 Bug Fixes

  • Show host payouts should be fixed for sure this time.

  • If a training center goes offline, there will now be an error when training horses at that center.

  • When using the Training Manual, you will now be charged appropriately for training if using someone else’s training center. 

  • The second Minimum # of Entrants on the Enter All settings has been fixed to Maximum # of Entrants. Whoops typos :)

  • You can no longer board at your own boarding center.

  • There is no longer an error when purchasing the Half Bucket and Half Water Bucket. No more thirsty horses!

  • The Training Manual now shows 100 horses instead of groups of less than 100.

  • The number of ingots shown on the auction page has been fixed.

 

✨  Art Contest

The art contest ends TODAY at 6:00 PM EST/ game time! Get your entries in to win one of 5 $65 prize packages! Rules and how to enter can be viewed here. We look forward to seeing all those lovely entries!

 

🔮 Upcoming

We have a chat party tomorrow at 12 PM EST/Game time on the Discord server! Come hang out with us!

  • Quests & the tutorial will be back with some improvements!

  • Private Sale offers will soon allow you to conduct sales well..privately

  • Bookmark that page! The bookmarks will be back for you to bookmark pages across the site.

  • Pony foals are soon to gallop into Eqcetera. Who's excited for some cute baby ponies?!

 

That’s all we have for this dev update! Oh.. is that the fall season I see off in the distance?

 

Cheers,

The Dev Team
