sparkles Next Registration Window

Now that adventuring is out, we can finally open up the site to new players. Gather your friends and family, because the next welcome weekend will be held from Friday, November 18th at 18:00 server time to Sunday, November 20th at 18:00 server time. This is the very end of Winter/start of Spring, so new players can start their journey when the weather starts to get a little nicer.

Sometime in the next few weeks, the site's server will be getting an increased hosting plan as this will be necessary before I increase the userbase size. You all have been doing so much adventuring! teehee


writing Miscellaneous Changes

The majority of this update consists of backend reworks and some pretty involved bug fixes. Some of the ones of interest are below:

- The cat name database has been moved to an actual database instead of handwritten into the cat generation page. This means it is much easier for me to add/remove cat names without running the risk of breaking cat generation.

- The chest/box opening system has been completely rewritten.

- The "Daily Activities" category in the menubar has been changed to "Village Activities" to more accurately describe its contents.

- The pattern names in the cat sandbox have been updated to match how the pattern names display on cat pages.

- Forest socials items now properly show up in the item database

- Adventures are no longer trapped in an unending void if you lose and have less than 4 cats on the party

cozy Mini Updates from October 9th

- Feathers were added to the adventuring drop pool

- Harmony cap has been lowered to current level

- Unowned snacks no longer show up in the snack screen to prevent future page bloat when adding more snack options

- Scrollbar has been added to between encounter inventory view to prevent it from stretching the page excessively

- A link to the adventuring guide has been added to the bottom of the adventuring page (and the adventuring guide got an update)

- Pagination arrow key controls have been moved to the pagination function, which means arrow keys will work globally everywhere that there is pagination
