Downtime Done!

Posted by Owner-Aspen on 9 Nov 2019, 10:57 am

downtimecomplete.png

Hi everyone Aspen here! The database cleanup went as planned, and everything should be running smoothly. If you see any issues, please report them to the bug forum and Quinn will help you out. You can learn more about the downtime changes at the end of this post.

As we keep on rolling into November, I have some special little tidbits to share about upcoming site features.

Used Food Wrappers

These little pieces of trash have been a mystery for quite some time now! I've been talking with a certain shifty traveling hyena who assures me they are worth more than they seem to be.

Even though they may not look like much, I hope you have been saving them up, as their purpose will become clear before month's end!

4269-used-food-wrapper.png4269-used-food-wrapper.png4269-used-food-wrapper.png
We smell like beef!


Soon, this item will no longer be marked as untradable, and will be able to leave your account normally. It is highly advised that you remove them from your user stalls (or at least not price them) until you are very sure you do not want them.

Wrappers drop occasionally from cooking and from the cave explore event. I am certain that their use will not be limited-time, so please do not worry about having enough right away.

The very second I get that hyena to spill the beans on what he wants them for, I'll pass that info on to you!

Black Friday Sales and Bonuses!

We are currently finishing up our plans for this year's Black Friday. We will be holding our annual FD sale, as well as offering a special giveaway with purchase through our online merch store. In addition, we have some special items available you will be able to earn during gameplay. There will be something for everyone!

Stay tuned to the news for more information later this month.

Stamp Collection

Is FC burning a hole in your bank account? Need a place to sink all that fine golden coin? You may wish to invest in a Stamp Collection. Stamps are a new item type, and are strictly a collectible. While you may find them from time to time during events, their main purpose is to soak up excess FC in shops throughout Furvilla. Collecting stamps is an excellent long-term goal for the most determined Furvilla player.

5351-the-traveler-stamp.png5353-mayor-chester-stamp.png5355-kieran-stamp.png5356-mayor-minstrel-stamp.png
Philatelists rejoice!


After introducing Sticker Albums, Button Books and Stone Collections this year, Stamps are the last special gallery we have planned. Stamps will begin rarely stocking in various Furvilla shops today, and more will roll out over time.

ASPEN'S RECAP
- Hang on to your Used Food Wrappers just a bit longer - their purpose will become clear by month's end.
- Our Black Friday FD sale and Merchandise giveaways with purchase will be coming later this month.
- Stamp Collections are live now, and stamps will begin showing up in Furvilla shops today. Stamps are intended to be a long-term goal for determined players.

Now I am going to hand the news off to Quinn!


Hiya Furriends!

Just want to point out a few coding-related items that Aspen didn’t already cover.

Firstly, as mentioned before, the primary purpose of the downtime was to clean up some massive database logs related to the Warrior career. These old unnecessary battle logs have now been cleared and should automatically do so in the future. Any incomplete battles were purged. Rest assured that warrior stats and progress were not touched. Oh, and while I’m on the topic, level 25 has been set as the maximum level attainable in the warrior career.

Secondly, some modifications have been made to player profiles. Any custom CSS should still work, but you may have to revise it to adjust for the changes.

A summary of the changes:

- Friend/unfriend and block buttons have been moved up to next to player names.
- The link menu has been moved up to the top right, links to galleries are on a separate row.
- Trophies have been moved downward and display horizontally.

Please report any found bugs in the bug report forum.

Thank you!

- Quinn

Scheduled Downtime - Nov 9, 10 AM

Posted by MOD-Thaleia on 7 Nov 2019, 4:42 pm

downtime.png

Hello all!

Hope you enjoyed this year’s harvest festival.

I want to give you all a heads up.

We will be going into a short maintenance downtime on Saturday, November 9, at 10 am Furvilla time.

This is primarily for database maintenance.

To summarize, EXHAUSTIVE logs of every battle have been kept in the database since 2017. Old battle logs are taking up the majority of the database memory. There wasn’t a built-in mechanism for cleaning the logs, and over time, this has filled up the database on the server to the point it must to be cleaned out ASAP. Unnecessary battleground logs will be automatically kept clean going forward, so we shouldn’t have to do this again.

Note that this will also purge any incomplete battles that any villagers are participating in when we do the database clean-up. I recommend that you avoid actively battling when we go into downtime, or else you may get an error message when attempting to refresh the screen on an interrupted battle.

Otherwise, there should be no noticeable changes to gameplay afterwards. Battle logs will still be kept during battle and reviewable at the end. Villager progress in the Warrior career (such as level, battles fought/won, and tourny stats) will not be touched.

If you do have any specific concerns you would like to point out, please feel free to ask here.

Thank you!

-Quinn

Scheduled Downtime - 11/3 at 2 AM

Posted by Owner-Quinn on 2 Nov 2019, 2:37 am

Hi furriends!

Tomorrow night, November 3, shortly before 2 AM we will be going into downtime for maintenance related to Daylight Saving Time. The duration of the downtime will be for a little more than an hour.

Note that Furvilla time does fall back in accordance to the end of Daylight Saving Time. So in effect, downtime will start right before 2 AM Furvilla time and end right after 2 AM Furvilla time.

Thank you!

Oh no!

Posted by Admin-Wisteria on 26 Oct 2019, 4:35 pm

newsflash.png

Hi everyone. I don't have good news this time.

We've discovered it was possible to generate a large amount of FurGems at a low cost, coupled with a secondary bug which allowed players to potentially acquire large amounts of FurCash.

While the latter case doesn't seem to have been exploited overly much, the former has been; as there was an associated cost with the limited item being purchased, the FurGems were not generated freely but still obtained in amounts exceeding what players would acquire through normal game-play.

The issue has been fixed for now and we're investigating cases of excessive FurGem acquisition. As a temporary measure until a final decision has been reached, it is no longer possible to purchase Warrior Elixirs from the Recycle Shop.

If you purchased "Rock Candy Skull Recipe Card" and recycled them in quantities greater than 100, please refrain from spending FurGems until this issue is resolved.

Apologies for the inconvenience and disruptions this has caused; we will extend the availability of the Dark Woods event battleground to compensate for the lack of availability of warrior elixirs.

Welcome, welcome! Come one, come all, step right up to my Haunted Carnival!

411-smiling-kritty.png
stares creepily

Oh get out of here Gremlin, you’re making the guests nervous. Now shoo!


Lucien Says:

Well then, now that that’s settled, let’s get to the festivities! It’s lovely to see our friends have come from far and wide to join us this year for the fabulous Dragonsmaw Manor Harvest Carnival! We’ve so much in store for you to do so be sure to listen closely lest you miss out on the fun…

Alarming Apple Bobbing

Follow the path and pay a visit to see Crimson Witch, she will be more than happy to allow you to bob for apples...But only once an hour, let’s make sure everyone gets a turn!
3833-green-apple.png3825-caramel-apple.png5262-top-secret-golden-apple.png


Caustic Cauldron

This cauldron belongs to the Crimson Witch, step right up to see what mysterious things she has in store...Put in some spooky items and get something spooky in return!

Chilling Cave

Step up courageous Warriors, help us defend the Carnival from the beasts that dwell within!

Creepy Cookery

Kieran from the Cozy Cookery has come to help us feed the masses. Go ahead and offer him a helping hand, he’s always willing to offer a nice reward in return. (recipe cards for the spooky dishes can be found in the Cozy Cookery)

Frightful Forest

Feeling brave? Well why don’t you explore the dark forest and see what treasures you can find! Just don’t get lost out there...Carnival staff cannot be held responsible for lost patrons, their belongings, or sanity.

Spooky Stage

If you love the limelight then join us on the Stage to show off your most frightening fashions. Everyone deserves a chance to be a Star! (this is an absolutely free raffle, please read thread carefully before participating.)

Wicked Wheel

Spin to Win! Once every hour you can come by and try your luck at my Wicked Wheel, round and round it goes...Where it stops? Nobody knows! (we recommend using your Explore and Warrior career Villagers when spinning the Wheel as the afflictions it gives out will give Warrior buffs and different path access in the Frightful Forest.)

Follow the MAP to start your fun!

But don’t leave yet! I’m not quite done…

Trick or Treat
5286-pumpkin-candy-pail.png

Generous neighbors are giving out treats! Pay them a visit (3 unique doors per hour) and collect that delicious loot! But beware of those sneaky tricksters, I hear they can be quite generous too.

Pawsitively Perfect Prizes!

"But Lucien, what will I do with all these tickets?"

You’ll use them for prizes of course! I’ll open the doors of my quaint little Shop on October 31st then close them again on November 14th, so plenty of time to earn tickets and shop! And please don't fret, I assure you that my prices will be quite reasonable.
3827-spooky-carnival-ticket.png


And now I’d like to place you in the capable hands of the lovely Aspen for a moment!

Dragonsmaw Pie!

Hey everyone, Aspen here with some spooooooky news concerning Dragonsmaw pies! These very rare delicacies were originally given as prizes for the 1st Dragonsmaw Festival. They have not made an appearance in Furvilla since then.

Furvilla's master chefs have finally reverse engineered the recipe, and they are sharing it with you! Best of all, everyone gets a recipe for free!

5296-dragonsmaw-pie-recipe-card.png
CLICK HERE TO REDEEM!


More copies of the recipe will be available in the prize shop.

Now, these powerful pies are tricky to make, and require many special ingredients which only drop during the Harvest Carnival. You may find the needed ingredients while exploring, participating in the carnival and battling in the event battlegrounds. These items will be available yearly.

5284-spookle-berries.png5264-slime-souls.png5255-crystallized-blood.png2785-pumpkin-guts.png
Looks delicious already!


As a reminder, feeding a Dragonsmaw Pie to your villager will give them 1 random costume buff that they don't already have. Quite a powerful little pastry!

Oooh.. I have one more thing to add, before I forget!

Strange Magic Stones!

Be on the lookout while exploring for some magical colors. I hear there are some new stones in Furvilla which will transform your villagers into some very handsome magicians! Bases for these villagers can be found here under "Strange Magic Bases."

samplesnews.png


You may also fight these villagers in the battlegrounds to earn more carnival goodies for the duration of the event. Remember, stones can now be collected and placed in your new stone collection.

That is all from me, enjoy the festivities! Back to you, Lucien.

Thank you for that positive pie and stone related news Aspen! And now my patrons, I bid you a fond farewell...Have a wonderful time wandering around our lovely Harvest Carnival and getting into the spirit of the season! Good Day and good luck…

- Lucien Nightshade, The Ringmaster
