  1. 6/7/2023 5:02 AM Ammit added:
    • Made it so foals from foundation stallions that you used to own don't allow for futurity locking. This does not change how the futurity works at all. It just prevents it showing you the lock options on horses that don't count for the futurity.
  2. 6/7/2023 12:11 AM Ammit added:
    • Added a lock that will block the Futurity Standings from being updated on the 28th of the month to prevent causing issues with the awards.
  3. 6/6/2023 11:56 PM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where you could not set the bone weight rule of a breed back to "No rule"
  4. 6/6/2023 11:48 PM Ammit added:
    • Ge/RAoG has been updated so that it remembers the last straw or egg you sent in the drop-down list.
  5. 6/6/2023 1:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Tack and tattoo coping lists have been limited to the first 500 horses you own (sorted alphabetically) to prevent long load times for large accounts.
  6. 6/5/2023 6:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Changed the bay club to only allow normal bays, no browns or wild bays. Created new wild bay and brown clubs. I also created Fantasy: Onyx, Fantasy: Rainbow Riot 2, and Pangare+ as brand-new club categories.
  7. 6/5/2023 5:35 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the GE and RaoG to stop you from sending straws/eggs to players who can't use them.
  8. 6/5/2023 4:22 AM Ammit added:
    • Cloning was causing issues for users with very large accounts. The cloning page now limits the horses listed in the drop-down to 1000 horses. I also added a direct link to cloning on the horse control panel.
  9. 6/5/2023 3:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated bulk tack coping to no longer show the debugging info.
  10. 6/3/2023 4:09 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed the out of date name on the tattoo for Exceptional Producing Sooty Bay's
  11. 6/3/2023 4:00 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug, where the old version of snowflake varnish was showing as snow, rather than as Vrn as it should be. There is no genetic change, just what the game displays it as.
  12. 6/3/2023 12:23 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated our advertising and the home page to now point new members to the Forest server instead of the Mesa server. Mesa server is getting quiet solidly active and Forest needs the numbers now.
  13. 5/30/2023 3:39 AM Ammit added:
    • I moved Sea Ponies to July last year and was planning to run it then this year as well, but it is clearly people really are hoping for those June ones. So SUPRISE! You will be getting them in June and July this year!
  14. 5/23/2023 1:52 PM Ammit added:
    • Opps! The editing of geldings and spayed horses was not working. You should now be able to GMT them.
  15. 5/18/2023 5:35 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed an issue on the create a horse page where it was not allowing breeds with no set bone rule to be created.
  16. 5/17/2023 7:42 AM Ammit added:
    • I added a new Bulk AFPT update option to the bulk testing area of the barn page for all premium members. I also fixed the bug with the auction remove button not working.
  17. 5/17/2023 6:32 AM Ammit added:
    • Since I was already in the GMT lab making edits I did something I have long wanted to do and made all horses even altered ones eligible for all GMT edits. To do this I did need to limit the length of the GMT horse selection list but you can pull up any horse you want to edit from their control panel.
  18. 5/17/2023 6:11 AM Ammit added:
    • I fixed a bug in the GMT lab that allowed you to edit a pony's height below the natural cut-off of 12.0 even if they did not have the hight restricted gene. I also went through all three servers and fixed any bugged horses.
      Additionally, I think we are fine to remove the license requirements from the height regulator gene. I think with the showing limiters there just isn't going to be an issue with problematic breeding. I have kept the licenses intact for now though realistically they will probably be removed in the future. You can not obtain any new height regulator licenses anymore.
  19. 5/16/2023 10:22 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where searching by "Not Like" a breed did not work.
  20. 5/16/2023 9:49 AM Ammit added:
    • Also added the breed info hover to the search page. Additionally, breeds with over 10k individuals now will just say 10000+ for the member count to prevent memory errors.
  21. 5/16/2023 9:24 AM Ammit added:
    • The breed info on the horse page can now be clicked or moused over to get more info about the settings for that breed. It also includes a search link to all members of that breed.
  22. 5/16/2023 6:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Added the ability to record some information about your personal breeds to be seen by others. It can be edited on the new "Manage My Breeds" page.
  23. 5/16/2023 4:33 AM Ammit added:
    • I noticed people where having some confusion about how GE level qualification works. I updated the sign up page to make it more verbose in explaining you have to meet every condition and more clearly demark what areas you are missing to qualify for that level.
  24. 5/15/2023 9:37 AM Ammit added:
    • I figured out a way so that your additional custom breeds will not need a bone weight rule for the breed characteristics to work. I have removed the bone weight rule requirement from the breed management form, create a horse form, and breed editing form on the horse page and bulk option. If your breed already has a bone weight rule that you can not change but would like to please pop me a PM on the forum.
      Do not forget, you have until the end of the month to set the breed on your older bred horses!
      In preparation for all the new breed characteristics, I have split off breed management from your stable settings page. It now has a dedicated page called "Manage My Breeds" in the navigation bar under "My Stable."
  25. 5/15/2023 9:19 AM Ammit added:
    • I added a small text block to the bottom of every gift exchange page explaining how to get help if needed.
  26. 5/14/2023 7:44 AM Ammit added:
    • Did a few spot updates to the gift exchange page, nothing huge. We are now asking people not to duplicate their wish lists as it has caused issues and confusion in prior exchanges.
  27. 5/12/2023 7:55 AM Ammit added:
    • We had some issues with rollover this past month so to hopefully keep it from happening again I have changed the times for monthly rollover. The server will now be closed from midnight until 2 am, to help clear database uses and free up server resources. It will then run the actual rollover at 1 am instead of midnight. We are finding that scripts running at midnight are the ones causing us the most issues.
  28. 5/8/2023 6:13 PM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug with brown generation that was causing the darkest most shades of brown not to show. Black browns are now appearing again in the game. To get it to show you will need to regenerate the image. Refreshing will not cause it to show up.
  29. 5/7/2023 10:46 AM Ammit added:
    • In the process of adding new building block herd helpers for the anniversary event, I have created a "Homozygous Recessive Agouti Promoter" herd helper. This has been added to Liberation Actualization, New Coke, and The Hope Of Dawn to remove agouti promoter from these herd helpers and restore them to the original intention of dark bay/browns.
  30. 5/4/2023 9:02 AM Ammit added:
    • Also added Wet N Wild to the creatable rank special herd helpers.
  31. 5/2/2023 12:23 PM Ammit added:
    • Made a HUGE number of special event-only herd helpers randomly creatable.
  32. 5/1/2023 10:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the embryo creation page to remember the last mare and stallion you used, and also added a warning not to create too many embryos. Please note that generally, I am not updating the breeding lab as it is due for a massive overhaul once we finish the image generator updates, but this issue was causing a lot of head aches for folks and it was not a huge fix to implement.
  33. 4/27/2023 2:53 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a bug with jumping through the list of tack items in the advanced tack editor
  34. 4/27/2023 12:16 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a bug that was causing horses to jump left or right when you tried to move them in the advanced tack editor
  35. 4/27/2023 11:43 AM Jenx added:
    • Updated art for the Shape trophies.
  36. 4/27/2023 11:04 AM Haystack added:
    • Updated the item movement buttons in the advanced tack editor to work on mobile devices
  37. 4/27/2023 8:38 AM Ammit added:
    • Added the visual component to the over 17 hand horses to the game. They do clip off the image. Eventually, we will add some smart logic to account for that but for the moment if you are breeding very large and don't want your horses off the page, you can shrink them down in the advanced tack editor.
  38. 4/26/2023 2:17 PM Haystack added:
    • Tweaked the background on the landing page to look nicer on small screens.
  39. 4/25/2023 8:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Pushed out a fix on the new tobi generation for hom shatterglass horses.
  40. 4/24/2023 5:24 PM Ammit added:
    • Updated the appearance of the login pages to include better graphics and copy.
  41. 4/22/2023 7:36 AM Ammit added:
    • Made adding and removing users mode clear in the chat dialog. Users often confused themselves when adding or removing bad ID numbers.
  42. 4/21/2023 2:01 PM Haystack added:
    • You can now (sort of) move the horse closer and further in the advanced tack editor. You can now actually put your horse in the stalls!

      This isn't true depth since our system is strictly 2d, so you'll still need to manually put items in front of/behind the horse as needed. As part of this, the items on the horse now move and scale with the horse, which feels nice.

      At the minute this update is only working when manually using the advanced tack editor, while we seek feedback. The scaling will not show up if a horse's image gets refreshed.

      There are a couple of minor known bugs with this update. The big one is some positions jumping when you start to move a horse around. Please let us know if you find anything else, or have any feedback

      I also fixed a few minor bugs with the advanced tack editor as I went along.

      * The editor starts with the horse selected instead of "None"
      * Mouse interaction no longer cut off if you move your pointer outside of the display
      * Mouse interactions generally got cleaned up a bit, and should be snappier.
  43. 4/21/2023 9:08 AM Ammit added:
    • Pushed out a small fix to chinchilla today and a large update to tobiano. For full info see the forum post titled "4/21 Image generator update: BIG Tobi update and tiny Chinchilla update"
  44. 4/20/2023 3:23 PM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where image header uploading was not responding.
  45. 4/17/2023 9:36 AM Ammit added:
    • 1) I updated tack copying this morning so that it copies the position of your template horse. That means horses will now stack correctly with other tack items in the scene. The caveat to this is it will copy the new horses to the exact position as your template horse. If both horses are identical in size, the copy will be exact. If the new horse is slightly shorter or taller than the original template horse they may end up in slightly different positions because of scaling. It should not cause any major impact but is something to be aware of. 2) Additionally I made it so if you try to copy over your template horse nothing happens. Before it would either delete the tack of the template horse or duplicate it.
  46. 4/14/2023 9:43 AM Ammit added:
    • Search by breed has been added to the search page.
  47. 4/13/2023 9:14 AM Ammit added:
    • Another cool search update since I am already in there today. Tattoos, with the exception of "GMT:" tagged tattoos, will now show next to a horse's name when you view them on the search page. That should help you a good deal with spotting rank specials, and making sure your herd is fully tattooed up. Should also generally be handy when sorting your horses.
  48. 4/13/2023 8:38 AM Ammit added:
    • Advanced Sort on the search page has two new options "Best Producing" which is based on the leaderboard rank of that horse, and "Futurity Rank" which will show you the futurity order of any qualifying stallions. Using "Futurity Rank" you could even run your own private stallion futurities.
  49. 4/13/2023 8:14 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the pasture page so that selecting foals from the search will now select them on the pasture page, just like the order horses.
  50. 4/11/2023 8:35 AM Ammit added:
    • Added bulk breed name changing. Same notes apply as the control panel page update that went out yesterday.
  51. 4/11/2023 4:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where breed changes where charging for a tattoo even if no default tattoo had been set.
  52. 4/10/2023 3:32 PM Ammit added:
    • The brindle breeder club is now the chimeric breeder club to reflect updated terminology.
  53. 4/10/2023 11:07 AM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a database issue that was causing tack to be applied incorrectly to newly aged-up horses
  54. 4/10/2023 9:44 AM Ammit added:
    • You can now access the new "Horse Breed Control Panel" on the "Control Panel" tab of your horse page. This allows you to update the breed of your horses. For the months of April and May, you will be able to change the breed of a horse even if they have descendants in the game. In the future, as with GMT edits, once a horse has foals in the game, living or archived, the breed will be fixed. You can change the breed of any horse created by you OR horses with the 'National" brand. Be careful editing the breed of outside-created horses as once you set the breed it will be fixed since they will no longer be 'National' bred.
      Bulk breed changing is coming next!
  55. 4/10/2023 8:55 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the founded breed manager under "Manage Stable Settings" to show you what your breed rules are. Before once you created any horses with that breed you could no longer see your rule settings.
  56. 4/10/2023 6:52 AM Ammit added:
    • I updated an admin page to make it easier for me to set if a herd helper is in normal rotation or not. I then set "Exceptionally Perfect Silver Black" to be a normally creatable herd helper and scheduled it for a special event tomorrow!
  57. 4/9/2023 10:15 AM Ammit added:
    • We had issues with the weekly rollover script failing on all three servers. To be clear we have not touched these scripts in years, and they ran fine when triggered manually. It is not a bug with the code. I moved the script to run slightly later in case the prior time was too congested but we really have no idea why crons, which have worked reliably for years, suddenly keep failing.
  58. 4/6/2023 5:32 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed some backend configuration that was causing some issues with regular backend tasks. This should (probably) address the issues some servers were having with things like monthly rollover.
  59. 4/5/2023 1:07 PM Ammit added:
    • The gray reduction gene has been updated to be available full-time in the GMT lab and is no longer restricted from the public listing. Enjoy!
  60. 4/5/2023 7:20 AM Ammit added:
    • Looks like our payment handling script is still struggling with PayPayl purchases made by people whose Paypal name has an apostrophe in it. I made another change to the system to hopefully address that, but it is a fiddly thing to test. If your Paypal name is not your own name but instead a business name with an apostrophe and you make a payment please let me know so I can insure your purchases are being properly tracked and credited.
      In more general news we are back and customer service is resuming normally however, Fluffle is still on spring break until Monday so programming work will be a bit disrupted until then.
  61. 3/30/2023 8:30 AM Ammit added:
    • I am as late as a rabbit in wonderland but the game should now automatically send out backward breeder awards every 28th. I also got it automaticly posting the forum announcements for the winners (losers?) each month.
  62. 3/28/2023 10:14 AM Ammit added:
    • Still fighting with trying to get awards to run automatically. It is not a bug in the code we have a bug causing the crons not to even attempt to trigger on Bluegrass and Mesa. I manually ran them this morning and made a tweak that might fix the issue for next month. No way to know until it runs in April.

      Getting the backward breeder trophies out has been a real fight this morning, and delayed and complicated by the other award issues. They have been sent out now, along with the GMT's but it is far from a seamless operation just yet. They award list does not know how to show them yet and we are long ways from the forum making automatic posts about it. I am doing my best with these and will keep you updated.
  63. 3/27/2023 2:41 PM Ammit added:
    • Added a change to height inheritance in the game. Horses can now turn out a bit smaller or taller than the average of their parent heights than before. However, on average more horses will be born closer to the average height of their parents with outliners being just that, rare outliers.

      In bigger news horses can now be bred up to 20 hands in height. Horses greater than 17 hands in height still will not show up any bigger on the screen. We expect the visual half of this update in early April.
  64. 3/27/2023 12:32 PM Haystack added:
    • Yet more some behind-the-scenes changes to support swapping items out in the tack editor later down the road. This time I updated hoof and hide items, which should be the last of it.
  65. 3/24/2023 2:13 PM Haystack added:
    • Did some more behind-the-scenes work in preparation for swapping out manes in the advanced tack editor.
  66. 3/24/2023 7:48 AM Ammit added:
    • Finished up some preplanned updates to breeds that I simply had not gotten to before. If your premium upgrade expires you can no longer create horses from your founded breeds. (Your default breed still works no matter your level.) Now, if your breed has any existing horses as part of it, living or archived, you can not change the breed rules.
  67. 3/23/2023 12:00 PM Haystack added:
    • Patched a bug that was putting the hoof on the wrong layer
  68. 3/23/2023 9:02 AM Ammit added:
    • Breed inheritance has been changed so that the "University" breed can not be inherited.
  69. 3/22/2023 1:01 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed how thunderstruck was displaying in the advanced tack editor
  70. 3/22/2023 10:40 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug on the Mesa server where clones where not being properly created as a "University" breed.
  71. 3/22/2023 9:47 AM Ammit added:
    • The Manage Stable page (On your Member Home page under Account and Stable Management) has been updated to allow you to found a new breed! You can create as many breeds as you like, set height and weight rules for the breed, and give them unique names and default tattoos. See the forum for complete details on the Breeds update. The update is available for premium members only.
  72. 3/22/2023 9:44 AM Ammit added:
    • Creating horses with a breed that has a default tattoo set, will now result in those horses being created with that tattoo.
  73. 3/22/2023 9:33 AM Ammit added:
    • Just rolled out a big update to breeding to allow breeds to be inherited. Horses will even inherit breeds owned by other players if both the sire and dam are the same breed. There is some really complicated logic going into this and the chances of bugs are rather high. Please report any issues you might notice to the forum.
  74. 3/22/2023 7:07 AM Ammit added:
    • The create a horse page has been updated so that instead of radio select to pick a bone weight and height, you now select the breed you want from a drop-down. This is in preparation for the upcoming new multiple breeds system.
  75. 3/21/2023 3:24 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed an issue where horses that aged up weren't using the new tack positioning system
  76. 3/21/2023 10:02 AM Ammit added:
    • The create a horse page has been updated to always show you the standard create option.
  77. 3/21/2023 7:37 AM Ammit added:
    • The price of breed name changes has been increased from 10,000 hbs to 1 IV in preparation for some new breed features.
  78. 3/17/2023 1:18 PM Haystack added:
    • Made some behind-the-scenes changes in preparation for being able to update a horse's tail, hooves, etc. on-the-fly in the advanced tack editor. This change does have known issue displaying tails and hooves with the correct electric effect on horses with Thunderstruck, which will be fixed ASAP.
  79. 3/17/2023 9:17 AM Ammit added:
    • Added a game alert for the auction to help you keep track of the horses you have won. It will also include a link to take you to the page of that horse.
  80. 3/16/2023 1:14 PM Ammit added:
    • Added number formatting to the auction to make the amounts easier to read. Also, when I was in the bid watcher I realized the bidding system had several bugs that had previously been correct on the main auction catalog page. These have been fixed now as well.
  81. 3/14/2023 12:24 PM Ammit added:
    • You can now assign a tattoo to your default breed. All foals you create after setting this tattoo will be automatically labeled with it at birth. Each tattoo applied this way costs 25hbs.
  82. 3/14/2023 8:48 AM Jenx added:
    • Redid and updated the art for PonPon Sea: Cloth Braids - Tail now as well.
  83. 3/14/2023 8:25 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where having old lower-level upgrades would make your Upgraded Features inaccessible.
  84. 3/13/2023 10:35 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the GMT lab to prevent refunds of licensed genes on lined horses from removing the license. Also made the dialog about license additions and removals louder to prevent them from being missed.
  85. 3/13/2023 8:31 AM Jenx added:
    • Redid and updated the art for PonPon Sea: Cloth Braids - Mane.
  86. 2/28/2023 6:21 AM Ammit added:
    • Added notes for when we lock accounts so that we can track why an account was locked.
  87. 2/28/2023 3:18 AM Ammit added:
    • Awards had an issue going out this morning. The bug was located and fixed, and awards where sent out.
  88. 2/26/2023 1:58 AM Ammit added:
    • Removed the ability to post on the activity tab on Mesa forums. PM someone if you want to contact them.
  89. 2/22/2023 3:37 AM Jenx added:
    • Fixed hard edge on KD So Shiny Spray so it fits better on the various body shapes.
  90. 2/22/2023 2:48 AM Jenx added:
    • Added a glow to all of the LaZer Advent - Tangled lights
  91. 2/22/2023 2:23 AM Jenx added:
    • Added a glow to the LaZer Advent Window Lights.
  92. 2/22/2023 12:48 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug, where if you placed a starting bid on an auction greater than the amount of money you have, it would cause the auction to hang and not clear.
  93. 2/22/2023 12:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Added a clean-up script to the daily rollover to remove futurity locking on horses age 6 and up automatically, and make a tweak to the database to make searching for locked horses faster.
  94. 2/21/2023 4:47 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated Futurity Locking so that only foals of the same era as the sire can be locked, to prevent confusion.
  95. 2/21/2023 2:02 AM Ammit added:
    • The search can now be filtered to only show futurity-locked horses.
  96. 2/21/2023 1:31 AM Ammit added:
    • Pushed the new rollover cron structure to mesa, after confirming it ran properly on forest.
  97. 2/18/2023 7:15 AM Ammit added:
    • The cloning lab got some updates today. It now has a confirmation window to prevent accidentally cloning the wrong horse. @* random words work correctly now. Added a fail-safe to prevent you from accidentally cloning a horse you do not own.
  98. 2/18/2023 5:37 AM Ammit added:
    • After some testing, I found that it was effectively impossible to breed downwards at very low quality-levels. I made a change that only applies when breeding the average breeding ability of the parents is 60% or below. The game will no longer artificially push foals toward a better breeding ability on these ultra-lows.
  99. 2/18/2023 4:36 AM Ammit added:
    • Added confirmation dialog tot he un-alter page to prevent accidents, and made it so you can't double charge yourself by refreshing the page.
  100. 2/18/2023 4:28 AM Jenx added:
    • Completely redid and uploaded new art for Halloween: Candy Collector tack item.
  101. 2/18/2023 12:44 AM Ammit added:
    • Pushed the new rollover cron structure to forest, after confirming it ran properly on bluegrass.
  102. 2/17/2023 9:11 AM Ammit added:
    • Split the end-of-day maintenance script into 4 separate scripts on bluegrass server to try and address issues with either locking or timeouts we are having.
  103. 2/17/2023 6:13 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a type on the how to move horses instructions on the barn page.
  104. 2/17/2023 3:43 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the end of the year awards script so that awards will exactly match the standings as listed on the club pages.
  105. 2/17/2023 2:38 AM Jenx added:
    • Updated the Coventry: Tail Ribbon tack item.
  106. 2/16/2023 1:44 PM Ammit added:
    • Fixed the bulk auction remove dialog. It was duplicating the enter dialog instead of confirming to remove the auction. If it does not pop up when you click the bulk remove button refresh the page.
  107. 2/15/2023 6:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Split out the daily auto-show reset from forest server to try as a hot fix for hanging queries.

    • Backward Breeders has been added as a leaderboard category rewarding the worst breeding stallions and mares in the game and the worst PTs of the year.
  109. 2/15/2023 3:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the stallion futurity board to highlight your name if listed on the board for clarity. Made sure that deceased foals do not count towards the futurity. Updated the "Updating Futurity Standings" dialog to read "Found #n possible stallions" instead of "qualified stallions" to accurately reflect the double filtering process.
  110. 2/10/2023 12:25 AM Ammit added:
    • The auction bid watcher will now display auctions soonest ending first.
  111. 2/9/2023 12:35 AM Ammit added:
    • All wild-type alleles of limited genes like platinum, rainbow riot, axiom etc. can now be purchased in the lab allowing you to remove these genes from foundation horses. Additionally, a reminder has been added to the GMT page that '-' means wild type and is not the limited version.
  112. 2/8/2023 2:05 PM Ammit added:
    • Papering has been updated. There are now three levels of Gold and Star papers, marked by the number of *'s beside the paper level. **Star and **Gold are the maximum possible by natural breeding. ***Star and ***Gold can only be obtained by boosting.
  113. 2/6/2023 11:01 AM Haystack added:
    • Fixed an issue where the backend service that sticks backgrounds and tack onto the horse images would occasionally go down and not come back up.
  114. 2/5/2023 12:57 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the "Entering Barn In Shows" dialog to show the number of entries before it finishes loading and added a progress ticker so you can see it working.
  115. 2/4/2023 11:53 PM Ammit added:
    • Updated the closed pasture message as it was vanishing a day too early.
  116. 2/4/2023 11:15 AM Jenx added:
    • Created and uploaded Valentine's Day tack pack consisting of 3 different heart-shaped balloons, 3 different roses and a garland of hearts to go with the Barn tack pack.
  117. 2/4/2023 2:03 AM Ammit added:
    • Changed when the information about auctioning locking a horse is shown because people kept thinking it meant their horse was in the auction.
  118. 2/2/2023 11:22 AM Ammit added:
    • Futurity locked horses will now display a lock icon next to their name on the search results and auction listings.
  119. 2/2/2023 10:48 AM Jenx added:
    • Created and uploaded a new Long and Luscious mane and tail - Salon Curl. The tail will likely interfere with leg-based tack, since it overlaps them, but that is partially by design.
  120. 2/2/2023 4:07 AM Ammit added:
    • Made it so bids on horses you own no longer count against you when calculating if you an afford more auction bids or not.
  121. 2/2/2023 2:40 AM Jenx added:
    • Fixed issues with Long and Luscious curly tail items.
  122. 2/2/2023 2:11 AM Jenx added:
    • Redrew and uploaded Long and Luscious curly tail and mane items.
  123. 2/1/2023 1:14 AM Ammit added:
    • Added Futurity Locking wich can be used to prevent futurity-eligible horses from being sold back to the game until age 6.
  124. 1/31/2023 4:12 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the era filtering language in the search parameters to make it easier to understand. Closed a stray strong tag after Era: that was making the era info hard to read.
  125. 1/31/2023 2:48 AM Ammit added:
    • Removed age gating from the futurities so stallions can show up on the board as soon as they have enough foals and those foals earn their first point. Also made it so updating the futurity standings clears any old standings to prevent hung scores.
  126. 1/31/2023 2:32 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated Stallion Futurities so that all offspring age 5 and less count, made it so lifetime points instead of points this year count (to best reward the stallions with 5-year-olds) and to preempt the problems that would have shown up I have made it so offspring can not be bred or owned by anyone who has ever owned the stallion.
  127. 1/31/2023 1:17 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed an issue when viewing the primary pasture of another player. It showed your name as the owner of the pasture instead of the actual owner.
  128. 1/30/2023 1:40 AM Ammit added:
    • Mesa server had a hung table causing pasture counts not to update. The table has been cleared. Midnight rollover will also run a few minutes after midnight now to push it to a slightly less busy moment.
  129. 1/30/2023 1:00 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug that was causing the "last logged in" field not to update.
  130. 1/27/2023 1:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Last night the old auction clean-up scripts ran and reset the auction. These have been permanently disabled now and won't trigger again.
  131. 1/26/2023 2:04 AM Ammit added:
    • The lined rescue has been updated so that it will now enter one horse in the auction at the top of every hour to space out its sales as much as possible.
  132. 1/26/2023 1:49 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated both the bid watcher and the auction catalog to use the more in-depth search style horse load outs.
  133. 1/26/2023 1:18 AM Ammit added:
    • Added auction end times to the search and removed the old "This horse is in the auction" statement.
  134. 1/26/2023 1:04 AM Ammit added:
    • The "My Bid Watcher" premium upgrade page has been updated to the new auction system.
  135. 1/26/2023 12:51 AM Ammit added:
    • The "LAst Week's Auction Records" page has become "Most Recent Auction Sales" and lists the 500 most recent auction sales, plus information about when exactly they sold. It will be interesting to see if trends emerge on when the best time to end your auction entry is. I have it set to 500 for now. We will see if that number needs to be adjusted in the future.
  136. 1/26/2023 12:11 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where "Current auction payout:" was showing the current payout for the wrong account.
  137. 1/25/2023 9:54 AM Haystack added:
    • The advanced tack editor now saves the thumbnailed version of the horse image.
  138. 1/25/2023 8:58 AM Haystack added:
    • You can now use arrow keys to move items around in the advanced tack editor! I also fixed up a few bugs with keyboard interactions. For instance, the keyboard shortcuts no longer fire when the add tack overlay is up.
  139. 1/25/2023 8:55 AM Haystack added:
    • Some behind-the-scene changes in preparation for giving you the option of displaying your horses on new, taller backgrounds!
  140. 1/25/2023 8:47 AM Jenx added:
    • Created 500 High tack pack and uploaded the 500x500 backgrounds to it.
  141. 1/25/2023 8:32 AM Ammit added:
    • When bidding on a horse in the auction, it now tells you at what time the auction ends.
  142. 1/25/2023 4:13 AM Ammit added:
    • I lied! Things went very smoothly and the new auctions are live right now. Auctions no longer run on Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday and now run every single minute. How long your horse is in the auction depends on how many days you set it to run for.
  143. 1/25/2023 3:35 AM Ammit added:
    • The auction catalog is now on the auction home page instead of its own page. The catalog now shows an accurate count of how many horses are in the auction, and how long each auction has left to run. Please note! This time may not yet be accurate. I am still working on dialing this functionality in. It also will no longer show errored auction entries to keep them from causing confusion.
  144. 1/25/2023 2:42 AM Ammit added:
    • "Current bid tally" has become "Current auction payout: " and now has some smart logic to handle when the owner is also the high bidder. Plus it will default to 0 hbs when there is no payout to display.
  145. 1/25/2023 1:49 AM Ammit added:
    • Added logic into the auction run script to simply skip any auctions where the high bidder is the owner of the horse. It is possible this will never see the light of day depending on if I get the auctions out before Thursday. I also made a tweak to the lined rescue. It will now auction from all horses it owns not just those under 10.
  146. 1/25/2023 1:27 AM Ammit added:
    • Unhid the ability to set the length of your auction entry in anticipation of the new auction system going in. There is a small chance it will happen before the Thursday run. More likely it will happen before the Sunday run. I am allowing you to set the length so your auctions do not run shorter than you are anticipating. Be prepared that I may convert to the new system at any time in the next several days. Might be a good idea to hold your fancy auctions until after the update is out and running smoothly.
  147. 1/25/2023 12:58 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated mesa server forum setting to allow users to always edit their forum posts.
  148. 1/24/2023 9:03 AM Ammit added:
    • Added a quick fix to futurities so that uni-created offspring do not count towards a stud's ranking.
  149. 1/24/2023 6:42 AM Jenx added:
    • Completely redid art for Trail Ride: Pad Navajo, keeping the basic design, but updating it.
  150. 1/24/2023 6:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Created the "Stallion Futurities" page under "Breeder Clubs" to show the current year's futurity standings. Futurity rules are listed on the "Stallion Futurities" page.
  151. 1/23/2023 6:39 AM Ammit added:
    • You can now bid on any horse in the auction from their page, regardless of the current auction status. This will not work from the catalog page, as I am replacing that page and won't be updating it.
  152. 1/23/2023 5:36 AM Ammit added:
    • Added a bulk "remove from auction" button to the barn page.
  153. 1/23/2023 5:19 AM Ammit added:
    • I also added the ability to remove a horse from the auction directly from their page.
  154. 1/23/2023 5:16 AM Ammit added:
    • The barn page, horse page, and public auction page have been updated with new logic for the upcoming round-the-clock auctions. Each now has a "Starting Bid:" option that you can adjust from between 2,500 and 999,999hbs.

      Any starting bid of 2,500 (or the lifetime payout for horses 10 and over) will automatically be placed by the auction bidder account. If your starting bid is more than the starting bidder is willing to pay, you will automatically make the starting bid. If your horse fails to receive any bids other than your starting bid it will simply not sell.

      Please note that when entering the auction you will see "The auction will run for 1 day(s)." This is logic for the upcoming new auction schedule and can be ignored. All horses will still auction on the normal Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday schedule for the time being.
  155. 1/21/2023 1:50 AM Ammit added:
    • Added an automatic URL shorter in the chat to prevent them from causing excessive horizontal scrolling.
  156. 1/20/2023 7:00 AM Ammit added:
    • The bidding options for the auction will now round down to the nearest whole number when displaying possible bids a user can make.
  157. 1/19/2023 2:20 PM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug where horses entered in the auction after the prior update had no starting bid and could not be bid on. Horses impacted by this will need to be re-entered for the next auction.
  158. 1/19/2023 1:57 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a few fiddly little bugs with how the advanced tack editor was positioning and saving items.
  159. 1/19/2023 9:51 AM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a bug where the advanced tack editor's color swatches would sometimes change themselves when you selected an item.
  160. 1/19/2023 1:36 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated back-end auction functionality to start recording starting bids and "end time" in preparation for the conversion to constantly running auctions.
  161. 1/19/2023 12:01 AM Ammit added:
    • I added a link on the member home page under "My Herd Helper Collection" to "Candy & Sea Pony Turn In" as people are often looking for this link. To prevent confusion and issues I have also updated it so candy horses will go into the image update queue once they are turned in. Should prevent the annoying issue of lots of turned in candy ponies in the auction.
  162. 1/17/2023 2:55 AM Jenx added:
    • Simply Sheets: Belly Strap Sheet got a light tweak on it's fill layer to account for better accenting on some buttons.
  163. 1/17/2023 2:30 AM Jenx added:
    • Completely redid art for Pirate Day: Eye Patch, adding color changing option to the item.
  164. 1/17/2023 2:25 AM Ammit added:
    • Damages were created before testing as a way to help members weed out low-ability horses. They no longer are useful for this and prevent some playstyles. Damages have been updated so that they are no longer influenced by ability. Every horse in the game has a 1 in 1000 (.001%) odds of causing damage on any given day. The amount of damage is random and between 1 and 150 hbs. In the past damages were calculated for every horse for every day you were logged out. To prevent things from getting out of hand this is now limited to 5 days maximum. If you are logged out for an entire month you will still only get a max of 5 days' worth of damage.
  165. 1/17/2023 2:05 AM Ammit added:
    • Added bad-log in rate limiting to increase game security.
  166. 1/17/2023 12:37 AM Ammit added:
    • Damages were created before testing as a way to help members weed out low ability horses. They no longer are useful for this and prevent some playstyles. They have been temporally disabled will be replaced with an updated system soon.
  167. 1/16/2023 7:21 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a long-standing bug where show payouts where not being tracked in the transaction log.
  168. 1/16/2023 7:04 AM Ammit added:
    • The auction has been updated so that when a horse is entered in the auction it is set to no testing mode. When it is removed, or the auction ends it is set to testing allowed mode. This is to prevent the rare occasions where horses could be accidentally altered mid-auction due to bulk testing.
  169. 1/15/2023 2:18 AM Ammit added:
    • I noticed a bug this morning where the leaderboards were averaging all foals by stallions and mares instead of just the best 10. I corrected this and will be updating the LBs to reflect this change. Expect some shakeups. I also dropped it from the best 10 to the 4 foals from each mare as 10 seemed an unreasonably large number of foals for most mares to produce. I updated the wiki to reflect this change.
  170. 1/13/2023 2:32 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed a bug in the advanced tack editor where it was scaling misc items
  171. 1/13/2023 6:08 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the Hide and Seek pop-out to provide some information on how to play, to show the current game's image automatically, and to show up to the fifteenth place in the rankings.
  172. 1/13/2023 5:49 AM Ammit added:
    • Fixed a bug with pasture breeding that caused the leaderboard stats not to automatically update when breeding using this method.
  173. 1/13/2023 5:26 AM Ammit added:
    • I added an alert system for the pan chats that tracks alerts per each account per server.
  174. 1/13/2023 4:22 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated buddy chat notes to allow formatting. The following tags are allowed for use:
      All other HTML tags or improperly formatted HTML tags will be automatically removed. Try not to break your everything! :D
  175. 1/13/2023 3:08 AM Jenx added:
    • Completely redid art and shading on Pirate Day: Cap tack item.
  176. 1/13/2023 3:01 AM Jenx added:
    • Completely redid art and shading on Close Contact Saddle tack item
  177. 1/12/2023 12:08 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed the ugly scaling that was affecting many of the horses going through the new image finalization.
  178. 1/12/2023 12:05 PM Haystack added:
    • Fixed an issue with the advanced tack editor where one could drag the entire scene around.
  179. 1/10/2023 2:31 AM Ammit added:
    • Updated the Era info link on the horse page to point to the new wiki article about it. Added a wiki link in the breeder club to more info about clubs.
  180. 1/10/2023 12:33 AM Ammit added:
    • A fix has been added to stop the exceedingly annoying instances of horses being both for sale and auction simultaneously. This does not apply to horses already entered in today's auction but will stop any new occurrences.
  181. 1/9/2023 3:19 AM Ammit added:
    • The Era clubs in the game were never supposed to have fantasy horses in them. (This is a realistic genetics game, not a unicorn game.) The clubs clearly state that fantasy horses are not allowed and it has never been possible to enter a fantasy horse into an era club via the club form. Over the years many fantasy horses have crept in through a series of bugs. Attempts have been made to remedy this without great success. I have put in a fix that should properly remedy the issue once and for all. Fantasy horses that accidentally end up in era clubs will be automatically removed. To prevent too great a shock to people's herds this purging will happen slowly and for large clubs may take months to complete. This gives people plenty of time to adjust their breeding goals if needed. The purge also happens from youngest horses to oldest, again to smooth the transition for people.

    • Updated PayPal purchase logging to avoid issues with apostrophes.
  183. 1/8/2023 4:50 AM Ammit added:
    • Created a change long to start recording site updates too small for a full forum update.
