Reminder! Black Friday event ending soon

Posted by Owner-Aspen on 30 Nov 2019, 9:50 pm

blackfridayminievent.png

Hi everyone!

A quick announcement for you concerning the Black Friday event, which we announced in a previous news post here.

The Furvilla Black Friday event will END on
December 1st, 2019 at 11:59pm.

All sales and special promotions and events will end at that time.


Please remember, Baublin boxes will leave the FurDollar Emporium at that time, but Baublins themselves are breedable until December 31st, with a 2 day cooldown.

Our Merch Shop will be temporarily closed starting on December 3rd as staff prepares to attend Midwest Furfest in Chicago, Illinois, from December 4th-8th. Our merch will be packed up to take to the convention and staff will be travelling, unable to ship goods. Expect the shop to open back up sometime around December 9th. If you are attending Midwest Furfest, stop by table M21 in the dealer room to purchase Furvilla products and nab a special Convention Trophy code!

We hope that you've enjoyed the special event, and are having a wonderful weekend.

Black Friday Mini Event!

Posted by AdminAssistant on 20 Nov 2019, 5:42 pm

blackfridayminievent.png

Hi everyone! I have some news today about our annual Black Friday event! We've decided to run all of the events and specials longer than a traditional Black Friday sale, to give as much time as possible to participate.

The Furvilla Black Friday Event will run from now until December 1st, 2019!


FD Sale and Gembound Plush Bonus
Every purchase of FD will result in a 50% extra bonus!

- Spending $4.99 will earn you 750FD (up from 500FD)
- Spending $9.99 will earn you 1575FD (up from 1050FD)
- Spending $19.99 will earn you 3225FD (up from 2150FD)
- Spending $49.99 will earn you 8250FD (up from 5500FD)
- Spending $99.99 will earn you 17250FD (up from 11500FD)


In addition, for every $19.99 spent on FD in a single transaction, you will be sent a Magical Lilac Rose Gembound Plush!

5379-magic-lilac-rose-gembound-plush.png
This item will be sent to you manually by staff, so please allow up to 24 hours for delivery to your account.


Furdollar Emporium Special Items
The following items will be for sale in the FurDollar Emporium until December 1st.

5380-lilac-rose-gembound-plush.png2894-black-rose-gembound-plush.png5373-magic-lilac-rose-gembound-sticker.p5374-magic-black-rose-gembound-sticker.p
5375-black-friday-jade-gift-box.png5389-baublin-box.png5393-gilded-emerald-baublin.png


The above Non-Magical plush and Magical stickers will be available yearly during future Black Friday events, to help with your Toybox and Sticker Album collections.

Baublins have a 2-day breeding cooldown and will be breedable until December 31st. These special boxes also have a higher drop rate than normal, so your chances at a Super Rare version are higher!

Special Explore Event
While out exploring, you will encounter our dear panther pal, Xaender Van Buckles (but do remember, his friends call him "Buck"). Buck is eager to get to know more about you, and I hear he also has some nice gifts to share with his friends!

5363-xaender-van-buckles-commemorative-s5383-rose-blackblade.png
Buck is so generous!


Black Friday Clothing!
What is a shopping spree without some nice new clothes to show off? Well, we have you covered. Firstly, please enjoy this FREE set of clothing from 2017's Black Friday event, packed neatly in a gift box just for you.

2893-black-friday-mystery-box.png
CLICK HERE TO CLAIM YOUR GIFT!


In addition, we have three new clothing items! Black Jade clothing may be either purchased in a gift box from the FurDollar Emporium, or purchased individually from the Fair Exchange for FC until the end of the event. You may also pick up extras of previous clothing as well!

2888-black-friday-boots.png2889-black-friday-coat.png2890-black-friday-hat.png2891-black-friday-necklace.png2892-black-friday-scarf.png


All Black Friday themed clothing now gives a standard buff to all villager careers (except Doctor, they are still in the rework phase). These sets are so pretty together, why not wear them all?
*Please note that if you have a villager already wearing an older piece of Black Friday clothing, you will need to remove it and put it back on to receive the buff.

Furvilla's Merch Shop Giveaway!
We are giving away physical Black Rose and Lilac Rose Gembound stickers with certain purchases from our Merch Shop. You will also recieve an in-game code for the Magical version to redeem on the site.

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!
