Per the status update - Outfits that have been attached to an incompatible dragon will now load with a mannequin (a Fae) so the outfit owner can resave the outfit - either under a mannequin or another dragon.

Maintenance

Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Undel
That is not normal. Maintenance occurs from 0:00 to 0:30 flight rising time. If the clock in the upper left is saying it's not during that window and the site is saying its in maintenance for you, then that's unusual unless it's one of the days where we have scheduled maintenance, which will be announced in the status box.

Please try refreshing the site. If that does not resolve the issue, a fuller report with your device, browser name, browser version, and a step-by-step (if applicable) what you were doing before the event occurred can be helpful.

@snackeater - Yes, this is the same issue as above: this outfit is tied to a specific male dragon that was breed changed into a Gaoler.

Please try the following to fix it:
- Open the outfit in the dressing room (your preview above should serve as a valid link)
- Switch the *View this outfit on a mannequin* setting to your desired breed
- Re-save the outfit

The forum preview may take a little while before it catches on to the update.

Sorry for the issue everyone. Please check Baldwin now, as the issue should be fixed.

As @Undel mentioned, Baldwin is now toying with higher level alchemical concoctions than ever before!

If your account takes an extended leave of 45 days or more, there is also a welcome home bounty that will feed your dragons to full. This is meant to help returning players more so than it is a food solution for active players though.

Oh how nice! The new alchemy cap must be why Baldwin is broken for a lot of users currently (myself included) XD He really needs to stop blowing things up! Take a break, Baldwin!

Looking forward to brewing the new silks... And that lagoon color is so pretty! <3

Our apologies. We are looking into it right now. It appears the cap increase is not playing nicely with the Baldwin overhaul we did a while back. We will have it fixed as soon as possible!

We've added a new article to our Knowledge Base, How can I protect my account?




Protecting your Flight Rising is easy!


Log out of your account completely
If you're not actively playing Flight Rising you should log out of your account, especially if you share a device, use a public computer, or someone else is able to access your device.



Change your password
How long has it been since you last changed your passwords? It's best to change all your passwords from time to time, not just the one for your Flight Rising account.



Use a unique password
Don't use the same password for multiple logins! One password per account is best practice. This means your Flight Rising password should only be used for your Flight Rising account.



Use a strong password
Passwords like 12345, use your email address, the name of the website, etc are weak passwords.

Strong passwords use a combination of numbers, letters, and punctuation. Types of punctuation you can use are:
  • .
  • !
  • ?
  • -
  • _



Use a password manager
Two password management habits place your account at risk:
  1. Storing your passwords in plain text on your device.
  2. Allowing your browser to save your logins, especially if you share a device.
Best practice is to use a password manager to handle all of your logins. While we can't recommend a specific password manager, there are several available, paid and free to use, for every operating system and device.



Never share your log-in information
Not even with your partner, family, or friends.

It's against our Terms of Use and it puts your account at risk. You may break up, have a falling out, any number of interpersonal events. When someone else has your log-in details they can wreak havoc on your account and Flight Rising Support won't be able to provide assistance with any items, currency, or dragons removed from your account.

Dragon Search page 501
Jun 21, 2019, 07:37:25
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Mutron
Hello @gbot13,

There is currently a limit on the maximum page number you can navigate to, which as you have discovered is currently 500. Due to the way sorting search results works, it gets more and more costly to present you with a page of results as the page number goes up.

I apologize that it is interfering with what you are trying to accomplish! There has to be some sort of limit, and we may revisit the exact limit in the future, but I don't think it will be feasible to increase it enough to page through all 8 digit G1 dragons.

In the mean time I can only recommend refining your query so there are fewer than 10,000 results if you want to page through all of them.
How do you obtain eggs from other elemen
Jun 20, 2019, 12:41:02
Forum Post | Help Center | By Undel
If you're interested in an easier way to get dragons (not eggs) of other elements, players sell their dragons to other players on the auction house. If you're not specifically looking for a first gen, this is the easiest way to get dragons of other elements.

I think mass pinging any account, not just dieties, would be a problem from a server load perspective if players are trying to all send the forum posts and associated pings at the same time? I suspect that is what Aequorin is alluding to with the system considerations.


Correct. This wouldn't be a matter of spam, but our Terms of Use, under exploiting a site feature.

As no one here was deliberately trying to harm the site by exploiting the forum ping system, clarification was given without the possibility of account or forum penalties hanging overhead.

That being said, I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread as the question has been answered.

Hello all! Regarding the topic, I have to put my 'No Fun' hat on.

Mass pinging deities could have a negative or harmful impact on the site. It's best to err on the side of caution and not do it. We risk creating an issue that would require we pull engineers off feature or quality of life work to fix it, delaying overall site development. /nofunhatoff



Hibernal Den Bug?
Jun 17, 2019, 14:19:02
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
Hi @Silverpelt60

Unlike breeding cooldowns, which tick down at rollover, hibernation cooldowns are based on the exact time a dragon was removed from the den.

I see that Opal's hibernation cooldown will end about 2 and a half hours sooner than Senex.

Opal will be able to return to your den at 8:15 6/17 (tomorrow)
Senex will be able to return to your den at 10:54 6/17 (also tomorrow)

I suspect that when you saw Opal at "1 day" and Senex at "2 days", it was shortly after Opal crossed the 1 day threshold.

Te see the exact time a dragon can return to your den, hover over their hibernation cooldown icon in your lair.

Hi @RoyalPrince -- This should be fixed now!
Update: Gem Purchases
Jun 14, 2019, 06:31:48
After observing, it appears that while delays occurred for purchases between approximately 04:30 and 05:05 Server Time today, they did eventually resolve, most within approximately an hour. As a result we have re-opened gem sales, with a caution about potential delivery delays.

The good news is that we are now receiving the IPNs for affected purchases were made on the 11th and 12th. At the rate it is going, we expect that the majority of gems purchased during this period will be fully delivered by later today.

Gem purchases are available again, but please be advised that there may be delays lasting over an hour before you receive your gems. Additionally, gem purchases made the 11th and 12th are slowly being delivered. We are still closely monitoring the situation. More info here.

eyo familiar lore questions.
Jun 13, 2019, 19:31:54
Familiar sizes vary greatly. A few are as large or larger than their dragon counterparts depending on the breed of dragon. For the ones that are semi-humanoid, their human looking parts are sized about the same as a person would be. That said, a centaur (due to all that horse back there) will be larger than a Raptorik or a Faun.

@heart If you double paid thinking that it did not go through, you can be refunded by putting in a support ticket. Please hold onto the additional gems that will be awarded, as customer support will retrieve those when sending a refund.

Right now we've tentatively reenabled gem purchases, as Paypal has indicated that this issue should not hit future purchases.

We are working with and waiting on Paypal to get us the information we need to force through the gem purchases that are in limbo from those affected on the 11th and 12th. Our sincere apologies for this delay. Getting this resolved is our top priority.
