Magic Stars are now coded to work separately from Skvader Feathers. Instead of a transformation item, they will add or remove the special star marking on a Skvader (depending on whether your Skvader has it). They will no longer overwrite current special markings.
We will eventually have an item that functions similarly for other special markings like Palms, Skunk, etc. so that you can add and remove markings with ease. There are three different marking layer slots, so you'll be able to rearrange the markings as needed.
The Skvader Feather has been re-added to the credit store. Stars will still be an event item you can get during August!
In order to fix an issue with Skvader stars overwriting other special markings (like Jays, Palms, etc.), we're splitting the transformation item into two different items.
The Skvader Feather will transform your rabbit into a Skvader (no star) and the Magic Star can add the star to a Skvader.
Everyone who had a Magic Star now also has a Skvader Feather for each Magic Star that was owned. If you had Magic Stars in your shop, check there (the Skvader Feather prices were defaulted to 0 so they can't be sold until you set a price. We also added them to rabbit treasures where stars were found.
The Skvader transform item has been temporarily removed from the credit shop and will be back most likely today or within the next couple days.
Foraging has been updated so you can find the Skvader Feather, and Magic Stars are a little more common. Magic Stars are currently inactive and don't do anything, but don't get rid of them. They should up and functioning again (as a way to add the Star to a Skvader) soon within the next few days. We're working on getting it so they don't overwrite other markings.
What are these skunk-like bunnies? Do they smell? Well, they're pretty, either way!
You can now find Skunk-like bunnies in the Backyard Rabbitry area.
Thank you to our volunteer marking artists, CarrotCube, Arsen, Tessiursa, Ashton, and Alledowaya for helping working on these! We've added all volunteer artists to the acknowledgements page, which will be automatically updated from now on.
Warrenz has been growing very quickly. It is still under a year old and we have a lot going on (and even more to add). To make room for everything, we've split some of the links in the explore area to a new place called the Plaza, which includes shops, dailies, and some of the more important places you may want to go quickly without having to remember which explore area they're in.
Level restrictions still apply in the Plaza. Nothing major has really changed, we just moved some links to improve navigation (for current and future plans).
The sidebar has been slightly rearranged to add the Plaza right next to Explore. We also put Rabbits and Warren next to each other, and Den and Bdges side-by-side (so everything feels a little more organized).
The transform items in the Crystal Cave will now work on special colors (like Palms and Jays) if the pose comes in them. It will only prevent previews and use on rabbits that are of a color that the transformation pose doesn't come in.
Wilder + Special Color Update
We've updated the special colors such as Wilder, Wildenglish, Palms, and Jays. This update also effects the stars on Skvaders.
You can now use Shadow of a Doubt on any rabbit with these special markings. If the marking doesn't come in every pose, you simply won't have the option to select the unavailable poses.
Breeding has also been recoded for these coloes and is much simpler. If your rabbit inherits a special marking that their pose doesn't come in, they simply won't have it (no reverting to a different pose like in the previous code).
Wildjay is now available in two more poses. These poses are not obtainable in explore right now, but Lunar will sell a few that can be bred and you'll be able to obtain them later with an item.
As a thank you to everyone who's been patient with us while updating the rabbit images, we sent out Golden Snowflakes even though the update ended up not effecting current rabbits.
These are demo versions of the Golden Snowflake. They work exactly the same, but are bound to your account.
These went out to every account over 100 exp and the number of snowflakes given is based on account level/exp.
Get Your Rabbits Updated
Hello again! It seems our new system is working great!
All rabbits should rettain their old images. However, if you want them updated, check out this thead.
It looks like the support for going forward with image updates is overwhelming, even though it may change some preexisting rabbits on the site. Thank you everyone for your feedback.
As a last ditch effort, we're trying one more time to get the old rabbit images to stay the same while being updated for new rabbits. So right now, we have the old system still set for rabbits ID 573337 and below, and the new system is in place for rabbits above ID 573337.
The main trouble here was getting modifier-changing items to work correctly with both old and new image systems simultaneously. Let us know in the bug reports forum if you have any issues.
If keeping the old rabbits the same ends up being impossible, we'll go forward with the updates to all rabbits accross the site.
The Snowflake Guide has been updated to the new system. It also has a link to the old guide for rabbits below the cutoff ID (will be removed if we have to update all rabbits).
