MAJOR CODEBASE VERSION UPDATES
Along with our amphibian wonders, we'll be busy this month with updating several aspects of the codebase to keep up to date with security and compatibility. We may experience some downtime here and there along with potential bugs and areas of the site temporarily not working. We'll be keeping a close eye on everything and working to update and fix things as smoothly as possible. Status posts will be shared if we're anticipating down time or maintenance. Thank you for your cooperation!

ROADMAP UPDATES
With the introduction of new features in our latest changelog post such as the previewing system as well as content updates like the Aviar Cove balancing, we've been chipping away at our current priorities list in the Roadmap.

Our most recent QoL and new feature updates have been in preparation for our major marketplace updates that we're working on. We may be releasing more partial updates like this as long as they can stand alone on our road to completing the overhaul of the trades market as well as the new pet accessory and customs markets. Our Roadmap thread will be updated accordingly when we're ready!

Aviar Cove Balancing Update!

Hello everyone, hope you're well! This is our Aviar Cove Update! This update includes a rebalancing of all Aviar Cove daily errand quests as well as a collection of new NPC items and NPC shop adjustments.

balancingoverview-aviar.png
dailyerrandupdates.png
The following updates have been applied to all Aviar Cove Daily Errands.
  • A reroll option with the player choice text "Can I help you with something else instead?" has been added to the beginning of each task.
    • This option can be used once per quest completion to generate a new task different from the initial one.

  • Daily Errands in Aviar Cove can now be completed 3 times/day instead of 7.
  • Positive quest ending potato rewards were boosted, increasing daily potato gains from each errand by about 2400 potatoes in total per NPC.
  • Affection gained or lost has been increased to be equal to doing 7 quests/day previously.
  • Tasks have been adjusted according to the reduced number of dailies each day. Some higher effort tasks such as adventuring have stayed the same or been reduced for better balancing.
  • Candied Shell rewards were increased. Dual-stat NPC's now give out a random assortment of two types of Shells instead of one.
  • Dialogue has been compressed to fewer total text boxes to lessen clicks.
  • Transitions and redirects have been updated to be more streamlined and give users more freedom.
  • Quest item hand-in pools have been expanded and updated across the board, this is applicable to all quests on site using these pools.

newitems2022.png
A total of 118 new items have been released!
New items have arrived in each NPC's chance shop, the following shop stock adjustments have been made:
  • A Bonus Prize pool with claims costing an equivalent of 10 spins has been added to each NPC's shop.
  • Totems, Pen Expansions, and Wardrobe Expansions, have been moved to each NPC's Bonus Prize pool in their shop instead of being in the chance pool.
  • 2+ newly drawn items have been added to each NPC's clothing set, each item with colourations matching that of the existing sets.
  • An additional 4th set colour has been added for each NPC, and can be found in their chance shop stock as well as bonus prizes.
  • Pet Hatching items and NPC food have been added to the bonus prize pool as well while keeping them in the chance pool.

newpets.pngpteaseritem.pngcelestine-poodle-hatch.pngjohaness-seal-hatch.pngpetrecipe.png

  • This is the fourth installment of daily quest balancing! We are releasing these updates town by town in order to eventually balance all existing towns.
  • With the addition of new items as well as bonus prize pools for NPC shops, we're aiming to make it so that certain items are obtained by choice rather than by chance. For example, the pen expansions were being dropped too often and filling up inventories without any purpose, now they can be picked up only if the user wants one.
  • The bonus prize and shop stock updates have opened up the possibility of adding new items more easily to NPC shops in the future within smaller content updates.
  • Coming up next is the Vaer Reef daily balancing which will include the unreleased Vaer Reef NPC Affection Quests!
  • We'll also be introducing a major potato sink update before Vaer Reef in the form of a Frog themed update some time next month!
