Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

August 20th Updates!

Hello everyone, we hope you're well. We have a quick update for you on some new features, fixes, and upcoming things we've been working on behind the scenes!

STORAGE BOX
We now have a storage box for all items you want to keep safely!
The storage box is located in the Inventory page via the Storage tab.

  • All items in the inventory can be moved to storage by selecting the items as normal within the inventory.
  • All items in storage cannot be traded, gifted, alchemized, used in quests, given to pets, etc.
  • To withdraw items from the storage box, simply go to the storage tab and select items to withdraw.
  • Withdrawn items return to the inventory.

Smaller Updates
  • Item Tooltips now display the item type upon mouseover with colour coding!
  • Some parsing issues were causing the word filter to occasionally not work, this should now be fixed!
  • The Referral and Registration page text have been updated to be more accurate!

UPCOMING THINGS
Here are some updates on our plans for upcoming features!

Summer Festivities Event

A reminder that our Summer Festivities Event begins on August 20th, 2020 @ 11:59:59pm DVT! We're excited to share in the celebration with you!
 
Guild Creation
We'll be officially opening Guild Creation soon, after we get the event running smoothly!
We're nearly ready and are doing our final rounds of tests and fixes to make sure it's as bug free as possible.
 
Custom Maker Submission
The custom maker submission system will be officially opened after we have Guild Creation open!

UPCOMING ART UPDATES
We have a few art asset related updates that we will be slowly rolling out in between higher priority features!

Clothing Additions & Adjustments
  • More skintones will be added to the early game in the future, including a larger variety of darker skintones!
  • We'll be gradually adjusting the darker outlines on some early game items to be subtler while still working well with darker skins.
  • A few items that were updated during closed development seem to have unintentionally gotten less saturated, we'll be correcting this over time as well.
  • We've added a function to set a pause to animated items which we'll be utilizing later for new as well as existing animated items. This should help alleviate the cluttered effect of an animated item looping immediately.

Adventuring Sprite Appearance Icons
To give users a better idea of what a sprite appearance looks like before they purchase or equip it, we're working on more detailed minisprite icons to replace the current circular colour swatch ones.

As always, thank you all so much for the support.
Be on the lookout for more updates soon!

    Storage is great! My inventory is such a mess so I'm so happy to finally be able to sort out the stuff I want to keep and then easily sell everything else I don't need. ^-^

    Also happy to finally have gotten a response about the art situation, almost two whole months after it was first brought to attention though. Not too sure on the wording of it though, makes it seem like only a small portion of the items with dark outlines are going to be touched, and I don't like that if that is really the case. The other issue with the outlines is the inconsistencies, if you don't change them all to be the exact same lightness then that work is going to be for nothing since it didn't fix the whole issue. I also feel that that "unintentional" part is a big fat lie, it's the artist's own artwork, they should be able to clearly and easily see if it's been changed. Stop trying to make all of you look better and just man up to your mistakes. If you clearly just say, "Look guys, we messed up. We decided on these things thinking it'd be better, but now upon hearing people's opinions on it we've decided it wasn't the best change and will work on fixing it. We apologize." I'm sure many of us (I know at least I would) would have a much easier time being ok with it and forgiving you all.

    I guess it's at least a start though? But I'm not giving you guys too much praise until after I see some of these changes, and then see how many items are going to be changed. I'd absolutely love for things to work out since I love the whole game style and whatnot of DV, but you haven't been giving many of us much hope with some of the stuff that's been done. :(


    On a less heavy note. I also think the timing of events should be stated as a second after the event day starts. For example with this, not 11:59:59 on the 20th, but instead 00:00:01 on the 21st. Or even just a simple date, no time, as long as all the events are starting at basically midnight/start of the new day.

    Thank you staff for the storage box ;u;
  • Villager Vely (#2875) 20 Aug 2020, 12:56 pm
    Fantastic QOL update, thank you! I'm particularly eager for the outline adjustments and the pause on animated items; the animations are rather distracting, personally.
  • Villager Weisschen (#22393) 20 Aug 2020, 1:22 pm
    the storage is really awesome so a thanks for that. i was afraid of using limited items on accident for example and i feel the trade market will have less storage stuff now haha.
    im glad to hear that the items linearts will be improved. i dont know how many it will be or how theyll look but its good to see it being mentioned.^^
    the date of the event was a bit confusing to me as well ha. i would have preferred if it said 21 but that really doesnt matter much to me. good update.
  • Villager geoff (#6603) 20 Aug 2020, 2:05 pm
    Thanks for the storage! It should really help the tradesmarket. :)
    I completely understand what you guys are saying about trying to integrate the darker outlines on things to make them look nicer on darker skin tones. Too many games have just a baseline color that only looks best on lighter tones, like Animal Crossing's mouths for example. I agree it looked inconsistent and weird at times, but I'm glad to see you guys working on it!
