Happy Tuesday! We have a fairly exciting update for you today.

 

⌛ Cron Time Changes

After reviewing the times that various crons run, we decided to make some changes. There are at least 2 benefits we could think of for this change: 

  • Horse age would be more accurate meaning there would no longer be that weird gap when horses show the wrong day that they next age. 

  • Pushing off the show cron will give people in west coast and mountain times another hour to show every night.

 

Old Times (in EST/game time)

12:00 am : Shows run and new shows are created

1:00 am : Horses age + care

2:00 am : Daily tasks (various processes running every day that don’t fit into the other 2 crons)

 

New Times (in EST/game time)

12:00 am : Horses age + care

12:30 am : Daily tasks (various processes running every day that don’t fit into the other 2 crons)

1:00 am : Shows run and new shows are created

 

🦄 Rare Breed Update

The rare breed limits are now in place for Akhal-Tekes. They will still go into the Foundation Store for gold and platinum players on Thursday at 6 pm EST/game time, but they will appear at midnight (12 am EST/game time) on Saturday for regular players. They will then be removed at 11:59 pm EST/game time on Saturday and will only appear every month on the 17th. Their next appearance in the Foundation Store will be August 17th.  This information can now be found on the help site.

 

We are giving Marwari breeders a bit more time to prepare for the rare breed change. This is to ensure they are able to achieve the level 25 requirement for breeding. Once the new requirements are added in for Marwaris, they will begin to count towards the 5 offspring and 3 clinic retrievals.  These changes will be added on August 5th when Marwaris go into the foundation store. 

 

✨ Discipline Tier Benefits

Discipline tier benefits are now in! We have added these benefits to give more purpose to climbing tier ranks and reward everyone's efforts. Like halter title benefits, they will be kept secret. See if you can figure them out.

 

💡 Big Announcement

Don’t forget that a big announcement will be happening on August 7th. We’re so excited to share with you what we’ve been working on. It's been hard not to reveal what it is, but we’ll be posting sneak peeks on our social media accounts. Don’t forget to follow us!

Because of this big announcement, we’ll be taking a small break from Eqc updates over the next few weeks to focus on getting things ready for August 7th. Does anyone have a guess on what we’re up to? 🤔

 

Upcoming Art Updates

August 14 - Draft Crossbreed

September 11 - Light Draft Crossbreed (This will complete all crossbreed bases! 🥳)

 

See you in a few weeks!

Cheers,

Bed & Curly
