Here are some thoughts and improvements in regards to the event features we designed this season!
  • Our Autumn event was our first foray into a more forum based event run manually by staff.
  • In the future, our plan is to have one fully coded event feature with different mechanics per season (4 different types in total) with side activities such as creativity forum threads, seasonal quests, and various other site based mechanics to supplement the main event type!
  • Event Shop and Currency removal date will be staggered to be after other dates from the start to give everyone time to buy what they want before it closes.
  • Event shop items will be stationary rather than changing in order upon refresh/purchase.
  • "Currency" type item will be added to allow better inventory sorting.
  • Seasonal event quest will not have a repetition loophole after completion for future events in which you can get more snacks per day if you don't complete the seasonal quest right away. We'll make sure this experience is the same for everyone!

 
Our next more major event will be some time within the winter months, we'll update everyone with more info as we plan!

    This event was a ton of fun! I did get a bit burnt out near the end of last month collecting currency as I had already gotten all of the items I wanted so I didn't feel like I had to keep doing them, so I just let my daily doing fizzle out. No big deal on that though, that's just my personal decision making after I felt I completed the event enough.

    While I understood the end date, I do still feel the dates need to instead of saying 12AM of the following day, say 11:59PM of the previous day. So in this case it would have been the 7th at 11:59pm. Even if the event is only able to be set to go away at 12AM, that's fine, just say the time a little earlier so no one gets confused and knows it's for sure that one day instead of the next and miss out on items.

    Anyway, really awesome start to my day seeing I actually won one of the raffles! :D Thank you so much! I don't need duplicates of the items though so maybe I'll run a raffle or something of my own so others can have a chance at them. ^-^

    Congrats to the winners.. I did not join cause the stress of my father death, taking care of funeral and spreading his ashes ( which happend this past saturday ) filled way too much in my brain and made me unable to focus on being creative at all. coldnt think up anything... have been so stressed with all that and tryin to gather enough
    currency ( which to my unederstnading I could only get trough 3s forest game, when I could not be creative... which ultimately made me miss out on 4 items I ould have liked to have.... ) that just reading this announcement made me burst into tears. ><


    creative critique though: I would have LOVED if there had been ANY way of seeing the items on an avatar as a form of preview. could not find any place to see the items beforehand o had to just take a rough guess out from the tiny 'item-preview's
  • Villager Griflet (#9938) 8 Dec 2020, 9:28 am
    I really enjoyed this event overall! Thank you so much!

    Considering both the staggered quest releases in the summer event and the delayed shop release in this event, I feel there needs to be more clarity from the very beginning of any event on exactly how much currency we'll be able to earn and how much prizes will cost. Essentially, all mechanics should be presented up front. There's a lot to be said for players making discoveries organically in the main game, but not in a time-limited event.

    I loved the idea of the creative prompts, but unfortunately I was unable to participate because, like others, I was already involved in NaNoWriMo, which is very time- and creativity-consuming. It would be great if this event could in the future perhaps be slightly shifted so it was half in a different month, or if at least the creativity portion were extended (for instance, announce the prompts a couple of weeks earlier) to allow us to budget our time and creativity a bit more effectively.
  • Villager Astraleaf (#17183) 8 Dec 2020, 9:47 am
    12 AM DVT is perfectly clear for me, but lots of other sites say 11:59 PM DVT to be clearer, just a thought for the future. :)

    Thank you for the event! Those sound like good future changes.

    One thing I'll ask is that if you intend to do a Vaer's event in Vaer's Reef in January, give us some advance notice to give us time to unlock the town ~OR~ allow a special travel pass for everyone to get to Vaer's Reef during the event.

    Personally speaking, I only bothered to unlock up to Aviar Cove, especially since the changes coming to Vaer's Reef storyline are not yet here. ^^
  • Villager wurm (#3540) 8 Dec 2020, 9:51 am
    Thank you for the staff pick! I'm flattered that you all liked my entry so much. It was a pleasure to write for the prompts.

    Looking forward to the event improvements; those all sound good. Thank you staff too for creating and running the event, I had a lot of fun.

    Congrats to all of the winners! Especially Osterizer and Ferinsy!
  • Villager Jadeite (#10894) 8 Dec 2020, 10:40 am
    This was a really great event! I'm pretty forum-shy, so I was relieved that there were multiple ways to get the event currency. Got everything I wanted playing casually around my fulltime work schedule. You simply love to see it, folks.
    Thanks for all the hard work! Looking forward to the next event!
  • Villager duskpaws (#49981) 8 Dec 2020, 10:43 am
    Thank you for this event! I'd gone inactive because getting the affection I needed for Mycel's quest had gotten really tedious, but this really got my attention. I didn't know the event had started until maybe a week late, but I was still able to get most of what I wanted from the event shop, so I think the pricing was fair. I loved the creativity prompts SO MUCH, was happy to see a variety of activities that I could use to get those snacks (I don't mind grinding a bit as long as there's variety, it was having to spend weeks with nothing but turnip trades and gacha spins that drove me batty with Mycel), lovely seasonal items, and the storyline was great. And I was really pleasantly surprised to see those accessory makers in my inbox, so extra thanks for the raffle!

    Also really happy to see you evaluating adjustments you want to make in the future, it's always good to see mods acknowledge when they could have done things better and how they plan to improve.

  • Villager Shizuo (#8751) 8 Dec 2020, 2:45 pm
    Thank you for choosing my homemade cookie ornament as a favorite! It took a lot of time so I am filled with happiness and joy! I got so many ideas for the next event from other members too so I can't wait for Winter!
  • Villager JaneBuzJane (#24420) 8 Dec 2020, 5:11 pm
