The overlaid text reads - Forgotten Scenes and Genes  - Venture deeper into the Forgotten Cave. The banner image displays the Broadfin hippocamp, an aquatic horse with fins in place of a mane. It is patterned with the elaborate swirls of a coral dwelling fish in black, white, and blue. Behind it is the forgotten cave scene, showing green pools and grey rock.

New genes, scenes, and familiars!







Boulder and Myrid
Boulder and Myrid are now appearing on Banescale, Gaoler, and Veilspun dragons! The ancient versions of these genes can be traded for by visiting Glass and Gloss.

Secondary Banescale Gene: Myrid Secondary Gaoler Gene: Myrid Secondary Veilspun Gene: Myrid

An image of the boulder and myrid genes on the new breeds. From top to bottom - a shaggy Gaoler dragon in shades of brown and orange, a wyvern-like Banescale dragon in shades of peach and reddish orange, and a Veilspun dragon in shades of aqua and blue displaying the gradiated swirls of the Boulder and Myrid genes.


If you encounter any errors in the Boulder and Myrid genes released in today's update, please report them in this thread and we will address them in a timely manner. This thread is the genes from this expansion only. Both consistency and technical errors may be reported. This thread will close May 25, 2024.







Coliseum Scenes
The Forgotten Cave venue in the Coliseum has gained a new scene for your dragons to collect and apply! Traversing the challenges of the Forgotten Cave may provide your dragons with this scene as a rare drop from this point forward.

Boulder and Myrid Errors

Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Undel
Please check the known issues and working-as-intended sections before making a report!

This thread is to track any gene errors that occur with the with the Boulder and Myrid genes released as part of the Forgotten Scenes and Genes update. This thread is for the newly released Boulder and Myrid genes only (Banescale, Gaoler, Veilspun), and does not encompass previously released genes.

In this thread, players may report any errors they encounter with the new genes. These can be technical errors, or consistency issues. This thread is intended to focus on these potential errors so that they can be addressed swiftly

We define technical errors as things such as: pattern bleed, pixellation, halo effects, inconsistencies within the same breed, color swatch errors, genes being uploaded in place of other genes, misaligned templates, missing artwork, gaps, missing pixels along a seam, missing line art, stray pixels, patterns that bleed outside the silouette, etc.


We define consistency/style differences as differences between an existing gene and its counterparts on other breeds that may differ. Sometimes this is intentional, sometimes it's an oversight. If a style difference is brought up, we will confirm it as working as intended, or report it as an error and complete the change within a 45-day time limit.


Please report any errors you encounter and we will do our best to correct them in a timely manner. This thread will close out 45 days after release, on May 25th, 2024. After this time, players may report technical issues with these and other gene errors in the Modern Gene Error Backlog Thread, or the Ancient Gene Error Backlog Thread, but further consistency issues will not be accepted for review and will be considered working as intended.



Note that it may take a short while for the site's internal image cache to reflect the corrected image assets.

Corrected Issues


Known Issues
  • Myrid on Veilspun M has part of the pattern clip from foreground to background hair. Technical error.


Investigating (Not sure if issue or not)


Working as intended
  • The mane colors matching up with Aberration's is considered working as intended.




I will be deleting reports that are not relevant to the Boulder and Myrid gene expansion new release, reports that have been corrected, reports are not considered an issue, duplicate reports, and discussion or chatter as I encounter/investigate them to keep the thread current with gene reports only.


This thread is accepting reports on the following genes only:

I waited for news, but why shop is closed?
Same here :( I mistakingly thought there would be a news post announcing Marva's opening (I assumed since there was no post on april 1st, it would open after the capsules open, too)

and then I didn't check (which, my mistake, but..yeah..) and now I missed the shop completely. Bit sour..

Love the eye types though! (and the Marva items too!)

The shop is open for 3 days during April Fool's. While it's not possible to get the items outside of the capsules right now, we did want to announce in advance that they would be returning so players knew how they would be acquired in the future and whether or not they would retire.

The overlaid text reads - An Eye for Shenanigans - New eye types have arrived! The banner image displays an Aether hatchling with faded wind eyes, which display with a greyish tint, lacking vibrancy. The blue Spiral hatchling has dark water eyes, which take the hue of the eye to something approaching black. The tiger striped Auraboa hatchling has vibrant green buttons for eyes.

Dragons are seeing Sornieth with new eyes!







Marva's Gifts
Marva has played her tricks yet again! Our team was able to locate the original elemental flags and return them to their rightful place of honor beneath your avatars. The flight forums had to be scrubbed clean of her vandalism, which took a full day to sort out! The scoundrel!

We want to notify players the the capsules Marva distributed through Galore appear to have finally stabilized, and will open to reveal the items below. In addition, these items will return for sale next year as we attempt to apprehend Marva at her stall in The Grand Exchange. Vial of button sight was included in all capsules, and is an unnatural eye type that can only be applied, and will not be hatched.
Vial of Button Sight Vista: Marva's Magic Vista: An Eye For Buttons Vista: The Finest Treasure





New Natural Eye Types
Dark and Faded are two new eye types that dragons now have a rare chance to receive upon hatchling! Want to apply the new eyes to an existing dragon? The following vials now have a chance to stock in the treasure marketplace.

Hey.

I hear you, all of you.

Right now everything in our world feels unstable, unsure, and utterly outside of our control. And you're not wrong to feel that way. It's very, very human to project or redirect that energy onto areas or spaces you feel you have a voice in or more control over—aka, agency. When we do that though, we can start to feed our very valid, very reasonable anxieties and concerns with borrowed trouble or worries. If we aren't careful, if we aren't mindful, it can consume us.

No one can tell the future; we can only focus on that which is within our control. While it wouldn't be appropriate or professional for us to post about or discuss finances, what I can tell you is that we ourselves are mindful of the areas that can kill businesses, like growing a team too fast and without consideration for sustainable runway.

Where can you contribute to Flight Rising's continued future? What is under your control?

Ads and gem purchases keep the lights on and our employees paid. If you're able to turn on ads on, we appreciate it. Should you come across a bad ad, follow the instructions here on how to report bad ads. If you have disposable income to spend on entertainment, you can buy gems from us on our Purchase Gems page.

I'm locking this thread now, before it spirals. Thank you for sharing your feedback and your concerns. We appreciate you.

The overlaid text reads Orb and Weaver, A primary and secondary gene pair, expanded! The banner image displays a Gaoler hatchling dragon with antlered horns and a fuzzy mane. Across its body in shades of flaxen yellow and caramel brown are the ringed and connected spots of the orb and weaver gene.

Modern dragons begin displaying an ancient twist! What was old is new again!







Orb and Weaver
Once only seen on select ancient dragons, Orb and Weaver are now appearing on modern breeds and many other ancients. This primary and secondary gene can be created in Baldwin's Bubbling Brew by alchemists level 26 and above. The ancient versions of these genes can be traded for by visiting Glass and Gloss.
Primary Aether Gene: Orb Primary Banescale Gene: Orb Primary Gaoler Gene: Orb Primary Sandsurge Gene: Orb Primary Veilspun Gene: Orb Secondary Aether Gene: Weaver Secondary Banescale Gene: Weaver Secondary Gaoler Gene: Weaver Secondary Sandsurge Gene: Weaver Secondary Veilspun Gene: Weaver Primary Gene: Orb Secondary Gene: Weaver

A selection of dragons displaying the Orb and Weaver genes. From top to bottom: An Aether dragon in shades of dusty purple and maroon, a Skydancer in shades of aqua and brown, a Fae in shades of steel blue and bright orange, and a Veilspun dragon in blue and violet blue.


The Ancient gene parchments for orb and weaver automatically converted to Primary Gene: Orb and Secondary Gene: Weaver, which are the new trade in items for Glass and Gloss as well as the modern gene version of the scroll.


If you encounter any errors in the Orb and Weaver genes released in today's update, please report them in this thread and we will address them in a timely manner. This thread is the genes from this expansion only. Both consistency and technical errors may be reported. This thread will close May 7, 2024.

  • Primary Orb (All this release) - The belly layer was left in by accident. Orb was never intended to have the main belly color present. This is considered an error. Corrected.
  • Secondary Weaver (Fae F) - There are stray brush strokes on the very tips of the wings were not filled in. Corrected.


Known Issues
  • Secondary Weaver (All this release) - The gradient intensity is not as strong as the three prior ancient releases. This was not by design, and is considered a consistency error.
  • Secondary Weaver (Pearlcatcher M) - The gradient present in the mane of the f and h poses are not present in the m pose.


Investigating (Not sure if issue or not)


Working as intended
  • The gradients and spots used in manes are intentional artistic adaptations per breed and are not considered an error.
  • The partial pattern on the Aether tail fluff is working as intended, as it bleeds over from the primary and creates a continuous line when the two genes are used together.
  • The gradients in the storm color skydancer's wings is correct.




I will be deleting reports that are not relevant to the Orb and Weaver gene expansion new release, reports that have been corrected, reports are not considered an issue, duplicate reports, and discussion or chatter as I encounter/investigate them to keep the thread current with gene reports only.

@alakatzam, hey, that's fair feedback. I had that in mind when I first commented and why I made sure to state "no promises" with the alert emoji next to it.

And just to clarify, because I think there's been some confusion: Search by color already exists as an option in the Game Database, only with one color at a time.
A screenshot of the Game Database's search field in the familiars tab. The dropdown to search by color has a dark red square outline around it to call attention to the option.


To put this another way, my initial reply was about checking in on quality of life tweaks to already existing features, in a light-hearted fashion while clearly stating there are no promises made.
