2/12/2019 patch (version 29)

-You can now scroll through all of a horse’s events
-You can now bid on another horse, and the owner can sell it at his/her discretion.
-Unicorn horns should now display for true unicorns (Unicorn Primus is a tester- I expect we’ll improve their color to match the horn)
-Again, testing if other players see avatars after a rider switches horses
-Speed (movement speed) and Agility (rotation) effects have been reduced while riding- I’m still working on animation speeds.
-Notification removal should be fixed … (I’ve said this before haven’t I?)
-Step 26 on tutorial might be fixed!

What is coming very soon:
-Friends feature w/ teleport to friend option
-Clubs
-Additional fixes of critical bugs that arise.

Sample of a few colors of some awesome hats coming in soon!

Hotfix patch 2/10/2019

Hey everyone and welcome!! Server is down for a few minutes

Just fixing a few critical things:
–upgrading server (hopefully this fixes wild horse spawn issues, another bandage fix incoming through)
–Event payout increased by x10
–possible fix to not seeing avatar when player is switching horses in front of you (this is tricky to test by my lonesome)
–Trees reduced- if still issues can reduce more!
–Client side patch a bit later tonight: Spawns new players to random zones to also reduce wild horse spawn issues. I can somewhat manually teleport people to friends until our friend feature is finished (new priority on this now). Somewhat meaning: if it is a friend- from another game or real, and I am online at the time!

I realized none of the screenshots below exhibited our dapper man

Had a bit of fun outfitting him. As an Austinite I may have favored orange tones. A million shouts out to our partners at YHWH Games!

Off the shelf and in to the frying pan!

Hello Everyone!
First off, sorry for the lack of updates. We have some great news now- first thing is that I currently have a lot of time to start working on the game again. My first priority is to add a new chat server, fix a few known bugs (buying wild catches when riding, notifications not getting removed, wrong ranch name showing etc…), and then finishing the bidding on horse feature and getting clubs in. We also expect to have a more friendly and prettier UI. Private breeds will also be in game next update.

And next thing is- a group of angel artists are partnering with us (YHWH Games!, LLC.) to flesh out and help us get our game to a point of release. I’m really excited by what they are doing and what we are coming up with. They also will be doing streams of them working on stuff live- so stay tuned if you are interested in seeing art in action! I’ve attached a hint as to what is to come!
