May I suggest a change: Showing signs of freedom/carelessness/curiosity/playfulness?

It had some left over text from the shadow familiar last month. Sadly the tooltip didn't update in time for the post, but it should show its correct text once the site's internal cache catches up!

Thanks for the report @Naeryl

We're working on a fix for this, but I wanted to provide an update since it won't be live right away.

@Naery - The bug fix for this is now live. Can you confirm that this now allows you to attach more than a single item? Thank you!

Breed Scrolls are now displaying under the Genes tab in Marketplace as originally intended. Additionally, a Scene/Vista filter has been added to the Scenes & Vistas tab, and a Breed/Gene filter has been added to the Genes tab.

The announcement post for the Marketplace revamp says
Quote:
Genes and Breed scrolls have been moved to their own dedicated tab.
However, only gene scrolls are in their own tab; breed scrolls are still in the Specialty section, though it is implied that they should be in Genes along with the gene scrolls.

Hi @DethJackal, I have confirmed with the team that Breed Scrolls are supposed to be in the Genes tab, so this is a bug. We will be changing this in the near future!
Flash Sale Bug?

Not sure if this is a bug or just the fact that the revamp was implemented before 12 FR Time, but earlier the Peacevine Aardvark was the flash sale item and now it's an apparel item.

I know the update said flash sales would last for 12 hours and disregard Marketplace resets, so I guess I'm wondering if this is an issue with that set up or if things are working as intended and the Peacevine Aardvark was only gonna be up for a little while due to the timing of the revamp?

Hi @LilBlueSapling, sorry for the confusion! The flash sale updates at 12:00 and 00:00 server time, so they will all be 12 hours long going forward. This one was just a little short because we launched the marketplace revamp at approximately 09:45. Thank you for checking in though!

So happy to see this update and the wildclaw scrolls!!!

Odd question but...is Undel ok? She hasn't posted in weeks. I hope everything is alright.

I'm doing fine. Next content update that's not programming focused I'll be posting. :) Thank you for the thoughts though!

@Criiptid, @Melliforous, is the 'search' magnifying glass icon to the left of the tabs not working or showing up for you? You may need to clear your cache if it's not.

Hot on the heels of our developer update, the Marketplace Revamp is now live! We've made improvements to performance, usability, and introduced treasure flash sales, and we hope you enjoy them.




A majority of Flight Rising's major features have been refactored and revamped in our ongoing quest to optimize and upgrade the code base, and Marketplace has now also been crossed off that list!


Changes and Improvements

As with all our revamps, we have been working hard to not only convert the code of features, but add some oft-asked for improvements. You can read all about the changes to the Marketplace in our very recent Dev Update by clicking the banner below:

Marketplace Shuffle

The gem marketplace has shuffled as a hoard of cycled items re-enter it for the season. From now until March 31, 2021 22:00 server time, these items will be available, after which they will cycle out once more:

They said that the MP update would be coming quickly, and they definitely weren't kidding. The MP revamp is coming tomorrow. (Or at least the backend work needed for it is.) They announced it less than a week ago.

This maintenance is for feature release. When we come out of maintenance, the revamped Marketplace previewed in our most recent Dev Update will be live.

And as always, should something unexpected pop-up to delay the maintenance start/end or release, we'll let you know.

Hi folks! We're very sorry to hear you've experienced or are experiencing this. It's definitely not an intended part of your Flight Rising experience!

We are investigating and working on addressing this problem. In the meantime, we ask that you please report and block the individual sending you the private message, do not click on the link, and delete the message.

In general, you shouldn't click on links from people you don't know or who use URL shorteners in forums and direct/private messages. At best, it's poor etiquette to mask the destination url from another person on a forum or in a direct/private message. It's okay to hyperlink text by using BBCode because the recipient can still preview the url when hovering their cursor over it or inspecting the link. URL shorteners, on the other hand, actively prevent that safety check.

Please also be aware that services that offer to shorten a link do so not only to address character limits but for gathering metrics—aka, data, up to and including local city location—on a brand's audience, for the purpose of insights and advertising.

What this means is, you should always exercise caution when clicking links anywhere on the internet. If you aren't sure about the link, preview it either by hovering your cursor over the link/hyperlinked text or inspecting it. If you can't because the other person is using an URL shortener or you don't recognize the destination URL, don't click.

This has gotten soooo long - and I am not sure how to search for my answer, so I appreciate anyone who wants to answer:

How will the flash sale items be known? I know that it will show ON the item, but if I am not coincidentally looking for that item and am amazingly lucky to find it on flash sale will I KNOW what items are available for the day? I would like to check the market daily, see what items are on sale for the day, and decide DAILY if I want to buy the item of the day. Will there be some place where the day's items are listed?
@waterlily
The flash sale icon appears on the treasure tab label that it is in as well as on the item itself. The flash sale item is always at the front of the item list for the tab it is in. It was our intention to make it as easy as possible to locate.

i don't mean to sound salty, but "soon", as proven by past promises, can mean anything from a few days to a few years. I'm not a developer but I feel like we can get a more specific timeframe than "soon", to prevent people from being disappointed.

Hi @blackberrytart! I know it seems like its easy to do, and doing so would definitely make everyone feel good. But...game development can be volatile and showstoppers can come in from out of nowhere, and when you least expect it. Or the dreaded "fix one bug, five others pop up" could happen. Or "Wait, what?! It didn't do that before in [x] environment!" It'd be significantly more disappointing to be given a timeframe and for that deadline to be missed because code can just be like that sometimes. For that reason, we don't and won't give timeframes, ETAs, etc—to prevent disappointment, frustration, and prevent crunching our team.

As Xhaztol noted in the post, the Marketplace Revamp is currently in testing and undergoing final polish. One of your fellow players had a similar question earlier today:

To avoid buying duplicates, will it still show we've obtained those vistas even if we're not using them at the time of viewing the item in the marketplace, and don't have a copy in our hoard?

If it is applied to your account but not actively displayed, it will still be lit up to help prevent purchasing duplicates.

@InkedEnfield, those are debug tools used for development and will not be included in the released version. Their inclusion in the initial screenshot was an oversight. Our apologies for any confusion!
