A status post with a link to the stream will be posted when it begins!
We'll be working on wishes from the Wishing Well thread.
Hope to see you there!

FROG UPDATE STATUS
The ribbiting will occur later this month, are you ready?

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!

UPCOMING NICO AVATAR CONTEST
We'll be having another Nico's Avatar Contest later this month, run by our kindly community managers. More info will be shared when we're closer to the start time!

CUSTOM QUEUE STATUS
We're a little behind on the current batch of customs due to our workload last month, but should be getting caught up relatively early this month. Thank you for your patience!

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!

    Yay!!
  • Villager Vio (#8758) 1 Apr 2024, 12:31 am
    So the chest is actually 2k...... Man.....
  • Villager Fioreth (#739) 1 Apr 2024, 12:34 am
    I would buy a discounted pack of 2 hatchling items, one for the regular pet and one for the evolved, but not 3. Something like 800 turnips instead of 1000 for 2. :/
  • Villager Steex (#8821) 1 Apr 2024, 12:35 am
    If I may suggest something, please make it so that the monthly previews thread doesn't use the hover over. I don't mind it being used in the news post but in the previews thread it defeats the purpose of being able to see the entire set separately while still being in one spot. Having to hover is also inconvenient for mobile players. Please consider reverting the format going forward. Thank you.
  • Villager R000P (#13367) 1 Apr 2024, 12:37 am
    Yeah I like the previews having the items in spoilers as well. Yes, the tooltips are nice, but at the same time I don't want them for everything.
  • Villager Teamfailboat (#23909) 1 Apr 2024, 12:45 am
    The new set is so cute! Also I am so ready for the ribbiting! :D

    Thank you for listening to player feedback on separating the hatching items from the monthly chests :)
  • Villager Vio (#8758) 1 Apr 2024, 12:56 am
    You know what even though I'm pissed off abt the chest price increasing overall (the feedback was meant to decrease it) I feel like I know I'm only mad just to be mad at "another thing" going on the pile
    there's lots of good in DV's future, too much for me to complain about a net 100 turnip increase that probably wasn't intentional but was still upsetting nonetheless

    happy april, this foolish update is delightful
  • Villager Sinjun (#61938) 1 Apr 2024, 12:59 am
    Perhaps the price increase is April's fool :D
  • Villager Espoir (#2743) 1 Apr 2024, 1:07 am
    The user and pet images... i can't stop laughing. Happy April Fools everyone~
  • Villager Fielkun (#3695) 1 Apr 2024, 1:26 am
    Happy April fool's day. The site looks odd today and our avatars too hahaha
  • Villager buggyeyes (#72539) 1 Apr 2024, 1:47 am
    I really dislike the pet being sold separately from the chest only. It should be sold in the chest as well as on it's own, with a cheaper just clothes set for people completely uninterested in buying the pet. We shouldn't have to buy the pet and chest separately if we plan to buy both, that's not fair.
  • Villager JACKAL0PE (#70146) 1 Apr 2024, 2:03 am
    1. I agree with others. I much, much more preferred the old previews on a preview thread, I think it's much more convenient, especially for mobile players, to be able to do a comparison of the items there. Looking up the old old sets in the clothing diary is really nice and the fact that item pops up while looking through the market is reeeeally really useful, but I think the old previews in the monthly set post were much better.

    2. I don't like the fact that a pet is not a part of the chest as it has always been (well, at least in the past year). I get the point of it, but I don't find it fair that normally the chest was 1800-1900, pet included, and now it's 2000. I think adding the pet separately AND in the chest is more convenient than just yeeting it out of chest completely. If someone doesn't like the pet, they can always sell it, but now if they like it, they have to pay more. Doesn't seem much player-friendly imo.
  • Villager Toast (#56722) 1 Apr 2024, 2:23 am
    Personally I don't care if the chest contains the pet or if it is separate. The harder pill to swallow is that now it costs more if you want all the clothes and the pet. It was already expensive enough, 2k turnips is steep.

    …It seems I am a pink butterfly wiener dog today
  • Villager Lucae (#46184) 1 Apr 2024, 3:42 am
    Nevermind, my pet is actually the wiener dog,
    I am a squished dark cat entity.
