Hello everyone! Welcome back from the downtime!
We have added several new features to the site, so please let me tell you all about them.
Villager Profile Changes
Our biggest change today is the expansion of villager profiles! All villagers can now hold up to 6 keepsakes and wear 6 outfits each. You may have 6 of the same item, or mix and match! There is no charge to expand your slots for these items - this feature is available to you right now.
We apologize for any impact profile re-arrangement may have on custom user CSS. The mod team has informed me that should your current CSS break any site rules due to these modifications, you have a grace period of 1 month to make needed changes.
If you don't currently use custom CSS, you need do nothing.
Wearable & Keepsake Buffs
Some Wearables & Keepsakes will now give your villager a small buff! Buffs are now displayed on your villager's profile in a color-coded way, which will inform you of your buff when hovered over.
Green icons are costume related buffs. Green also represents buffs acquired from Dragonsmaw Pies. Purple represents pet buffs, for example the Sweetiecorn cooking buff. Orange icons represent buffs given from outfits, and blue represents keepsake buffs.
We will be retroactively adding buffs to some keepsakes and outfits over time, as well as adding buffs to select items in the future. Please note! If your villager is already wearing or holding an older item that receives a buff, you may need to take that item off and re-attach it to your villager.
You may use the Item Museum to see all items that are now buffed!
For the sake of gameplay balance, we have added a rule to custom item orders which disallow buffs to be added to custom items. Staff may add buffs at their own discretion.
Questing Changes & New Prizes!
We have made a few changes to Quests which should help ease your burden and help you to yield more rewards
Quests now ask for less items overall and award more shards when completed based on your level. We have also added several new recipes to the quest shard shop, which create the following new outfits and keepsakes. Each of these new items will carry a small buff.
Tailors and Crafters will be busy!
Also available in the Quest Shop now are 4 new battle pets!
Winter came and went... :(
More Plush Have Arrived!
We have added more Shiftie plush! Magical Galactic Shifty Plush and Magical Primordial Shifty Plush have been added to the Fur Dollar Emporium. Their non-magical counterparts are also now available in the Quest Shop.
We are also regularly adding new plush to Plush Collector. Bees and Cows have been added recently, with more critters on the way!
Battlegrounds now display backgrounds while you are fighting! Huzzah!
Most villagers should now automatically face the monsters they are fighting while in a battleground. The direction your villager faces during battle may be toggled on their profile under villager info - edit. You have full control over which direction they face!
