@tmplr this should now be fixed!

If your vista was deactivated again, one last re-activation should be all you need. Thank you!

Thanks @tmplr

The cause of the bug has been found and a fix is in the works. Until the fix is live, your vistas may get reset a few more times, my apologies.

Thank you for the report @tmplr

Are you applying new vistas to your account from the hoard when this happens?

When you say your vista keeps "disappearing" do you mean that it's removed from being your active vista and nothing is put in its place? Or does the newly applied vista become your active vista?

@Marabis

You should be able to apply Scroll of Eternal Youth to a hatchling now.

For the time being, Eternally Youthful dragons will not be filtered out from the dragon picker when using a Scroll of Eternal Youth. It will not let you use the scroll on one of these dragons if you try to apply it, but they will still be in the dragon list.

In a future update we will make it so Eternally Youthful dragons are filtered out from the list in that scenario.

We're getting a few questions asking if there's any way to consolidate stacks that are smaller than 99 without moving them to/from the Vault.

There is! I answered about stack consolidation earlier in the thread. For performance reasons, you can't do this for your whole inventory at once, but it is possible per item.

Hi @Forumsdackel

We will look into this, thanks for the report! Do you happen to have any other filters active or just the single stack one?

I have taken the feedback regarding stack filters on the skin tab back to the team.

Hi @Forumsdackel

What does it show you when it doesn't load? Does it give you any kind of an error? If you happen to be able to take a screenshot that would be helpful but otherwise a description will help.

Currently the single/partial/full options for that filter refer to stacks of quantity 1, 2-98, and 99, but it shouldn't stop loading no matter what you select, unless of course you have none that match that filter.

Thanks!

I really wish everything would stack properly up to 99, not just a visual display that just requires a lot of extra clicking. Creating a whole new system instead of just fixing stacking is very convoluted. I was also hoping for another vault 'layer', kind of like lair tabs.
gemajgall wrote on 2020-10-22 06:54:16:
Yay.

I hope this also fixes the incomplete stack issue, where you'd wind up with stacks of 97, 15 and 8 of the same item. And Crim taking from the biggest pile instead of smallest.

@Louretta @gemajgall

If you have two (or more) stacks of an item that are less than 99, there is a way to consolidate them now. If you click on one of these stacks, at the bottom of the item interaction window there should be a little dustbrush icon. Clicking that will "tidy" the stacks up for you.

I love the update, but I'm having one issue. The "Check out what's new with the Hoard!" pop-up shows up every time I visit my hoard, or switch between my hoard and vault. I've already clicked through the info several times in hopes that that would make it stay away, but it's still coming back.


@Demensne, going all the way through the tutorial and closing it by clicking the checkmark (not the 'X') should prevent it from showing up again. If it's still popping up after that, definitely report this in the Bug Reports forum.
Hoard & Vault Revamp
Oct 22, 2020, 06:06:06

Our revamp to the Hoard and Vault systems is now live! This update includes major improvements to searching, navigation, organization, and item usage.



The majority of the post below has been carried over from our Dev Update on the feature.


Hoard/Vault Revamp

Today, we're happy to launch our revamp of the Hoard and Vault systems, both of which have received significant improvements from top-to-bottom!



Improved Searching and Filtering

One of the top suggestions in the Suggestions forum was a search feature in both the Hoard and Vault, as it would enable you to find easily and efficiently find items. We've implemented robust and comprehensive search options to many previous revamps, and this addition is a continuation of those long-term design goals.

We're excited to share with you the different ways that the Hoard and Vault now support narrowing down your item searching, including:

  • Searching by name
  • Filtering by stack size
  • Filtering by item subcategory
  • Filtering by item rarity
  • Filtering by item color
  • Filtering by item's usage in other game features.
  • Sorting items alphabetically

prev_hv_searching.png

Searching for the term "slime" filters the results to only items with the word "slime" in their name.



Item Interaction Window

While the legacy Hoard allowed for simple functions for only a few types of items (e.g. opening chests, applying genes and vistas, etc.), the revamp now expands the amount of available functions you can perform on a single stack of items.

We handle this through the new item interaction window, which appears when you click on the icon for any stack of items (the term "stack" meaning anything from 1-99). Each item’s interaction window will display a custom array of buttons that will allow you to perform several actions, including (but not limited to):

  • Converting food items to food points
  • Opening container items
  • Previewing items like familiars, apparel, skins, vistas, and scenes
  • Transmuting a single item from the stack at Baldwin's Bubbling Brew (provided his cauldron is empty)
  • Selling the selected item
  • Selling all duplicates of the selected item, should you have more than one stack of it
  • Listing the selected item for auction
  • Storing the item in your Vault or withdrawing the item to you Hoard

You can dismiss this window by clicking or tapping anywhere else on the page.

prev_hv_iteminteractionwindow.png

Opening Chests with Random Contents

To expand upon the new actions available in the item interaction window, we've made some improvements to the act of opening chests that have randomized contents.

In the legacy version of the feature, it was only possible to open these items one-at-a-time (1). In the revamp, we've increased that count to ten-at-time (10). This should make cracking open stacks of these chests a little bit easier!

prev_hv_open10randomchests.png

A dialog window asking if the player would like to open ten (10) Iron Treasure Chests at the same time.



Locked Items & Favorites

At the very bottom of the item interaction window, you'll notice two toggles:

Lock

This toggle locks all instances of the item in your Hoard from being able to be sold for treasure. In the case of food items, it also prevents them from being converted to food points. If you're holding onto some items for a special purpose, objective, or sentimental value, this is a great way to safeguard them. Locked items will be denoted by reduced opacity for the item container.
This does NOT prevent them from being used in other site features such as Baldwin's Bubbling Brew, Swipp's Swap Stand, or Crim's Collection Cart. It only prevents an item from accidentally being sold for treasure (or in the case of food items, converted to food points) directly from the Hoard.


Favorite

This toggle favorites all instances of the item in your Hoard. While this toggle doesn't prevent using or selling the item, it can provide you an extra way of classifying items that you like or that are important to you. Favorite items are denoted by a yellow star in the top right corner of the item container.

The location of the lock toggle on the item interaction window, as well as evidence that selling the item has been restricted due to the toggle's state.
prev_hv_locksfavorites.png

A selection of items in the Hoard, some having been locked or favorited by the player.

Both toggles also have accompanying Quick Filter buttons in the top right corner of the Hoard that, when activated, will show you only items that have been toggled into that state.

prev_hv_lockfilter.png

The locked items Quick Filter is enabled, showing only those food items that have been set to a locked state.



Additional Hoard Options

In addition to everything listed above, we've launched the feature with a few expanded options that you can enable by clicking or tapping the gear icon in the top corner of the page.


Virtual Stacks

Like to keep a tidy Hoard? It is now possible to collapse identical items down into what we're calling "virtual stacks".

Example: If you have three (3) stacks of the same item, all in quantities of ninety-nine (99), enabling this option would collapse them down into a single "virtual stack" of two hundred ninety-seven (297).

Even cooler, this option affects items that don't typically stack above one (1), like familiars and apparel. We hope it's useful for people who like to keep their inventory concise and orderly.

prev_hv_virtualstack.png

A selection of familiar items; some that have duplicates have been collapsed into "virtual stacks".

This option is purely visual. You cannot manipulate a virtual stack like you can a normal one. Thankfully, clicking or tapping on a virtual stack will take you to a specialized view where the individual stacks are broken apart. From there, you can perform any of your standard item actions on the individual smaller stacks.


prev_hv_virtualstackcontents.png

A specialized view of a "virtual stack" of plant food items showing that it is comprised of six (6) individual stacks.



Useful Items for Other Features

This next one is one we're particularly excited about. Once this option is enabled, items that have multiple important uses in other site features have their usage case(s) denoted at the bottom of the item container in the form of colorized bars and icons. Mousing over those bars will tell you what the item is useful for.

prev_hv_itemusages.png

A screenshot depicting the multiple uses for the item Sizzling Phosphorous. The colored bars and icons indicate it is useful in Baldwin's Bubbling Brew and for a Hibernal Den task.



Items Per Page

When we first developed Flight Rising, we designed a lot of our features to work well within a screen resolution that simply isn't that standard anymore. Now that mobile browsers and huge desktop/laptop monitors are commonplace, we wanted to give players more options for showing items per page.

It is now possible to show up to fifty-six (56) items per Hoard/Vault page!

If the amount of items per page exceeds the height of your browser window, the action buttons that exist at the bottom of the Hoard will "hook" themselves to the bottom of the window instead so that you don't need to scroll all the way to the bottom.


prev_hv_56itemscroll.png

With 56 items shown per page, those that don't vertically fit on the page have been partially obscured by a gradated horizontal bar of item actions. A pair of downward arrows indicate that the player can keep scrolling to see more items.


Self Service: Item Restoration

The launch of this feature revamp also includes a brand new option in our Self-Service support menu. If you make a mistake in hoard-selling an item or multiple items, it is possible to buy them back (for a markup) using this option.
Similar to Dragon Restoration, only items that you've sold within the last fourteen (14) days will be eligible for restoration. Additionally, only items sold from this point forward after the launch of the feature will be logged; you will not be able to restore any items you sold in the fourteen (14) days prior to the feature's existence. Flight Rising Support team members will be unable to assist in restoring items that were not sold within that fourteen (14) day window.


prev_hv_itemrestoration.png

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback over the years about the Hoard and Vault through our Suggestions Forum, as well as those who interfaced with us between the Dev Update and now. Almost all of the major improvements to these systems were a result of your voices.

We're excited to finally launch another major feature in our sitewide refactor, which is now getting pretty close to completion. It's been a long, challenging journey, but along the way, Flight Rising has gotten better for it, and we appreciate you hanging out with us while we make that trip!

So soon? Hoard+Vault
Oct 15, 2020, 20:28:06
It's been answered a few times in this thread already, but the World Map is a gargantuan art project, and it is absolutely still in progress (just approved some concepts for the Sea of a Thousand Currents a couple weeks ago, as a matter of fact).

That being said, we're actively evaluating and shifting priorities as a team to bring features and revamps that will either help or satisfy the largest collection of players as possible. The World Map is nice and we're super stoked about it, but it's not as integral as the game's inventory systems.

Every single one of you uses the Hoard on a daily basis, so we're putting a lot of effort into getting that out so that everyone can make use of the new quality of life changes it will bring.

I know, I know "no fun" and all, but your education is important. Even if you want to make games for your career, you need your high school degree (or equivalent) to get there. Pixel dragons will still be here when your classes are done for the day.

This was a typo combined with a little technical jargon.

To pull back the curtains a bit: "Level 1" is actually "0" in the code. So the max level is 28... and it's also 27.

Apologies for the confusion!

Thank you for the additional catches on some of the apparel. I've added them to the list of fix requests and they're currently pending! Thank you all for your attention to detail, and our apologies that these slipped past!

The current list of time tweaks was for levels 1-5. While we're waiting for those fixes I'll see if I can get in the list of baldwin time tweaks for 6-9. :)

I love the wings, but for a lot of them it looks like it's only on one wing? Is this intentional? The only dergs that have it on both, visibly, are male nocts and spiral and female nocts, spiral, imperials, and faes.

Intentional. Sadly these guys create escher wings if we put it on both on many of the illustrations. Like if you want to layer the back plate behind the front wing shoulder guard and armor, but in front of the back wing shoulder guard and armor, it's not possible. So in many cases one wing was chosen as the lesser apparel hijink. Sadly apparel cannot be both above and below something at this time in the layer order. :(

They are all actually 700, but the tooltip is taking a while to catch up.
