Counting five generations - answered

Forum Post | Help Center | By Undel
If you look at the two dragons and they have any ancestors in common back 5 generations, then they cannot breed.

It's to encourage trading and interaction, rather than just breeding the same dragons to their offspring over and over and over. :-) Also: poor dragons!
Clan Rank Doesn't Show?

The like button is on our to-do list. It got broked when the codesmiths gutted the forums to make the server speedy again. It's low priority, but will be fixed in the future. :)

You don't get a clan ranking at all until you have 10 battles under your belt. To display, yeah, top 10 is correct!
Admins are League Fans?
Jun 24, 2013, 22:30:41
We had a lot of people contributing the name generator. If there are some super specific names like "mickeymouse" or "benedictcumberbatch", we don't really want those in there. Nocturne and Karma aren't league specific. I'll search up Teemo and Renekton and get them out of there. You could name your dragons these things, we just don't want our on-site generator to be the one to suggest it to you. :-)

And I used to play a bunch of league a couple years ago. I'd like to pick it up again at some point =3.

I could have sworn we had the Pearlcatcher's wiki already... And it was a bit different. Said that Pearlcatchers would abandon their babies, if it was a choice between their pearls and kids.
@Shimamoyo The wiki entry on them went up a couple days ago. For the kid abandonment, You're probably thinking of the mini description that cycled around with the image when it was on DA or tumblr. The breed articles are many times longer. Since so much time on the article was devoted to how much they love their pearls, we decided that another paragraph was getting a bit lengthy. But yes, pearlcatchers will choose their pearls over their clutch almost every time. They're not fantastic parents.


I was first very excited about the brightshine yubilee, but now...
Without the Fairgrounds it is nearly impoissible for me to get enough tresure to buy a skin, and because the coliseum is not working for me about 80% of the time I am online, I dont think I will be able to get the things I want at the Festive Favors, because the only way to get items or tresure is gathering now.
Sorry, but I am so dissapointed. :(
@Schiraki The festive favors shop ONLY uses immaculate tablets as currency, not treasure or gems. The tablets drop from gathering and coliseum, and even were the fair games online, you could not get tablets from them. :-) You'll be able to get your items as long as you spend your gathering turns in the light areas. (Any profession works.) Now is a great time to have kept your dragons well-fed for three days straight, as the gathering well-fed bonus is pretty great. Getting the faire updates done is a top priority for us. Apologies for the downtime.

BUT I also got the Apparal once more from the Marketplace for 10 Treasures XD
@Inukimi Butts! Okay, I mis-entered the item stock chance. It will not stock anymore >.>; Haha

@Undel: Are you guys still planning on having those winning skins drop in the coliseum?
@Amalythia Absolutely!

Were the message items random? I received a message in my inbox about the items, but there were no attachments.
@Chaosinaction Everyone received the same message/items. The message would have had a little brown package next to it, which disappears when you click "take all items" on the message. The message then looks like an empty message. Check your hoard's familiars tab or apparel tab and I'll be you'll locate them. I looked at your bestiary and you are in possession of the akirbeak, so your items did arrive!

Hello, SirBroad -

Does the person you are attempting to trade with have a full lair? If so, they will need to clear more room before the trade can be conducted.

I guess the trade-off is that you have to for-go your food gathering for the day to get so many tablets; so if you're less well-stocked it can be a tough choice.

Just wanted to clear up this misconception! Immaculate Tablets have an equal chance to drop from:
  • Hunting
  • Fishing
  • Foraging
  • Insect Catching
  • Digging
  • Scavenging

It is not necessary to forgo normal food gathering, just make sure you're gathering in the Light zone!

I was able to load it once yesterday for the first time in two weeks.

Now with the event it has gone back to the same horrible connecting bar. I kind of wish you guys had fully stabilized things before opening an event REQUIRING you to find things in battle.

Hope this is fixed soon or you add more ways to find the items.

Hi Norticru!

You can also find Immaculate Tablets by doing any type of Gathering in the Light area. Coliseum is not required to participate in Brightshine Jubilee. :)

We have found that this issue is most common with really, really old versions of IE (6, for instance). We highly recommend updating IE to its most recent version for best performance. Either that, or moving to Google Chrome, which is known to have the most reliable performance thus far.

Thanks for the report!

is this normal?

even the time had a hidden message 02: (10) dont know what that message was tho

That is not normal. The ads should never be in the content area. Are our forum posts creating links for you? If so, I'd recommend running a virus scan. We do not have any context/forum advertising in the posts.

Will the items be the same each year? Or will there be new items?

Many of the items will probably be unique to this year, as we would like to keep things fresh each Jubilee. If you see anything you fancy, I'd pick up one or two of them.

BrightShine Jubilee:
This month all of dragonkind has come together to celebrate Brightshine Jubilee, the festival of the light flight. You may gather immaculate tablets from the light zone by using any gathering profession this week. In addition, tablets are dropping off light and neutral monsters in the coliseum.

Read more about the updates here.

The festive-favors stall has opened for business, and you may trade any immaculate tablets in for holiday-exclusive items. This stall will be open for the duration of the holiday, which ends Saturday, June 29th at 23:59 server time.


Downtime Items:
While we were clearing out bugs across the site, we ran across a two stacks of items we've never seen before. These have been mailed out to our players. We sent out each and every one we came across, leaving the server bare, so you probably won't see these things ever again.


Lore Update:
The encyclopedia has been updated with an chapter on Pearlcatcher Dragons.


Brightshine Jubilee Skin Contest:
The Brightshine Jubilee skin contest is now closed. We were overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries you graced us with. (You sure didn't make judging this thing easy on us. Wow. We don't even know where to start!) We will announce the winners this Wednesday.

Faireground Status:
The faire games are currently offline for maintenance. Getting these guys back up is a top priority for us. Thank you for your patience.

Coliseum is down for the moment. Thrage made a change to it before he went to bed, and now I'm unable to reboot it until he returns. As he's only gotten 3 hours sleep so far, I'm going to wait for a bit before calling him. He's been up for many hours straight.

Apologies for the downtime. It'll be back today.

That... isn't right.

One lat bit of troubleshooting, then we're calling in the codesmiths!

Can you try clearing your cache? We were putzing with images earlier today, and I'm wondering if somehow you have a messed up image cached.

Could you let us know what browser you're using?

I tried to reproduce this and had no luck. Have you tried clicking on the "hatch" button?

If you can't locate it, if you could screenshot what you're seeing and post to a site like imgur, that might be helpful in narrowing down what's going on.

Do you have open slots in your lair to receive all the hatchlings? If not, the nest will not open until you do.
Breeding Cooldown too long -- opinion
Jun 24, 2013, 04:41:44
From our Kickstarter Page in reference to the use of Kickstarter funds:
"Most of our Kickstarter funds will go to primarily upgrading our server environment from a Virtual Private Server (wherein several sites are sharing space on a single server) to a Dedicated Server. This will substantially increase the load speed, efficiency, and capacity of Flight Rising, and support hundreds of concurrent player connections fluidly. Technology like this is pricey, but we believe with your help, we can do it!

In addition to upgrades, any remaining funds will be distributed to:

Reimburse content contributors (Artists, Writers, Designers, etc.) that have helped us through the years.
Fuel future content!"

The original $3500 was going to purchase 6 months of 1 server. A server with the capacity to handle a few hundred users.

With the extra funds:
We reimbursed content contributors like we said we would.
We upgraded the server like we said we would, we even got it for longer and are working on a second one.
We are using it to fuel future content like we said we would.

Breeding Cooldown too long -- opinion
Jun 23, 2013, 23:52:23
Our apologies to those who are upset. The recent downtime and our games going offline is incredibly frustrating, and we will not stop working until these issues are resolved. (Actually we won't stop working even after they're resolved: There's a lot to do and new things we want to put in!)

We do have some pretty good discussion thread in the suggestions forum about breeding cooldowns and the pros/cons of reducing or increasing them. The official stance for us right now regarding cooldown is that we're going to let things run their course for the next month or two and reevaluate after the game has had a chance to hit its stride (where it moves past initial launch population and into what the "live" population will be.) We want for people to have nests going at all times, as breeding is one of the highlights of the game for many people.

An item that costs gems that reduces cooldown is something that crosses our line of no pay-to-win, so that option is an unlikely outcome for us, though it's a good suggestion.

The FR community has been pretty darned great overall. It's fine to have differing opinions and to be upset with the game. Reading about what things folks like and what they don't like, what's frustrating and what's fun is super helpful, and much appreciated.

(I did not see the facebook comment/reply people are talking about before it was removed, but behavior like that is seriously uncool. Discussion is fine, name-calling and bringing someone's child into it is NOT. If you ever see anything of that nature in the future, report it to an admin and we'll put a stop to it real fast.)
