10/18/2019 Version 32-35:

--Multiple ranches! --Horses now have a "LevelUp Boost" for every time they level up. This can be used to increase the base stat of a horse (which more strongly effects foals). If your horse has boosts available there will be a + button by the stats. The amount may seem small, but given lots of levels and generations it will certainly need to be nerfed or capped someday.
--Ghostly horses now have a distinct coat
--Few more base colors have been added: Red - like Secretariat, Blue grey, and Peach.
--Events should be sorted by newest first
--horses should dissapear from your list now when sold or retired.
--I think it should be fixed where search results were displaying the wrong page and you couldn't move backwards.
--Prize money not being added to horses' total earnings should hopefully be fixed
--A discord channel has been set up https://discord.gg/pa6fccQ - please join us! There is also a button from the home menu

Next update, Before the end of October!
--More bug fixes, always, find em!
--More Quests/Daily quest system
--Player level up tree with perks
-Mac players, please download and test new build and let me know. Join in discord!

10/13/2019 Version 31:

--Music! More to be added of course. Mute option for sound is on the options panel (gear icon button).
--Event payouts have been reworked. The top 50% (floored, so top 3 if 7 entries) receive a prize and horse placing. The amount of which is based on number of horses entered. The events require 3 or more entries for winnings to be awarded. The purse bonus multiplier has been significantly decreased, but right now the events should still award out more total.
--New patterns and markings added.
--Some patterns can now be combined (i.e. like a roan pinto or roan dapple). I'm seeing some really cool looking results! There's also a higher chance of bays to occur.
--Rare spooky time horses can be found or born for the next few weeks (Hint- 2 variations).
--Jumping! You can now jump while riding. Hold down space key to jump and make sure you're moving at a decent speed. Still working on this one but it is nice for getting around. Stronger and more agile horses can jump higher.
--There's a temporary jumping animation for avatars, don't worry- it's not final!
--Payouts in events now pay off if 6 or more horses, but only to the top 3 if under 10.
--An age penalty has been added to event scores. Training should certainly offset this to a certain point.
--Animal Suitabilities (a lesser known hidden stat) are fully functional. Events had always judged on them and the genetics are there, but now you can improve suitabilities
for generations to come by competing in events. Dream of having a donkey racing line? Well with a whole lot of work and time, it might be possible.... Smaller aspirations may be more feasible, like a dressage line of Arabians. There will be ways in the future to reveal animal's suitabilities- it will be perks with player level up points.
--Therapy has been removed from training options show jumping option has been added (Strength, Speed, Agility)
--bugs fixed:
--If you're having trouble training (Horses reverting to previous age and state), please try and slow down the training and turn process.
--If you aren't connecting to chat when you log on, I'd love to talk to you and try and figure out what is happening. Please email me at [email protected]

03/03/2019 Version 30:

-Friends list is added. To add a friend, view their ranch panel. When they in return add you, you can teleport to each other via friends list. Enhancement of this feature will improve!
-Bidding has been fixed and you can now view all the horses you have bids on by clicking "my bids" from your ranch panel. Cancel bids to receieve your money back from escrow.
-You can now enter two horses per event. You can only create three.
-Clubs are not underway- we have lots of ideas for these and will continue to work on them. Player-based clubs can be created now, they are 50 orbs a pop.
-We're working on tracking down a bug that causes people to not be able to go riding. Please send me .log files from your harddrive at C:\Users\{yourname}\AppData\LocalLow\Orbis Games\Vhorsehorse to [email protected]
-Coming soon: critical bug fixes, (Jump/halt) next update, new UI fully implemented, ranks, names, rules & customization for clubs, Ranch building/club building (artists are currently working on assets), Enhanced chat.

02/12/2019 Version 29:

-You can now scroll through all of a horse's events when viewing events from a horse's panel.
-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 textures)
-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!

02/10/2019 HotFixes:

--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!
--Bandage- 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!

02/05/2019 Fixes:

--clipping has been reduced on saddlepads. We'll probably end up animating these for a final fix.
--Harness animation has been fixed when training
--Issue might be fixed where catching a mount did not save in quest (in testing- was unable to replicate)
--Equipping items in 3d world should save (also in testing, unable to replicate)
--Equipping tack while out riding should show changes in 3d world now.
--Store item showing wrong price at price button after viewing a purchased item has been fixed.
--I think purchasing items while out riding should work- this has been a wierd one and transaction may not complete. Please report it if you get refund and no item
--Quests are a bit more in-your-face when logging in. Still working on them, they are taking a little time to show up for new accounts.

--Chat is back up! Sorry our chat server went down when I had the game updates in limbo and could not update it till now.
