Thanks for the reports, everyone! -- it happens when we've literally hit the ceiling on concurrent SQL connections. We are actively looking into it. :) Glad to hear that, aside from that, the experience seems relatively smooth.

Omicron Wanderers text had
(The Pivot Point) located in the word (version)
and a Swedish commercial
(Sweden men 25+ wanted) hidden in the word (large)

Kistaros text had same Swedish commercial
(Sweden men 25+ wanted) hidden in the word (start)

in Undels text i found the words play and game infected too
(game) had bingocabin commercial and
(play) had Cleopatras treasure feature

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.

If you go to the marketplace, click on the gems tab in the upper right and it will show you all the items in any category that are sold for gems. Some categories (such as battle items) do not have any gem items available.
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.)

To help narrow down what's happening so we can fix it, are you refreshing the page, or visiting it again a second time?

What browser/mobile are you using?

I've had folks PMing me about this. You don't have to switch your browser (though our team wholeheartedly recommends Chrome over IE!).

You can resolve this in IE by clearing your cache.

I hope this fix works for you guys too!

@Thrage
We're still having the issue. This is what happens on my Fiance's account:

- Signs in, it immediately takes him to the log in screen and shows that no one is logged in.

- Click Dragon Lair -- Whoops! You must be logged in to access this area (gets this message while he is clearly logged in (shows username, icon, gold/messages/etc)

- Click Dragon Lair again -- He is in his clan's page, signed in.

- Click Nesting Ground -- appears normal

- Click Gather Items -- Shows he has 7 turns left. Click anything to gather-- suddenly shows 0 turns.

- Click Clan Profile -- he suddenly appears logged out.

- Click Clan Profile again -- Whoops! You must be logged in to access this area (gets this message while he is clearly logged in as it shows his username and other information at the top)

- Click Clan Profile a third time -- he appears logged out.

- Click Hoard -- Whoops! You must be logged in (same as above... shows his log in info at the top)

- Click Hoard Again -- Actually accesses his hoard while showing him as logged in.

- Click Beastiary -- Is suddenly displaying Princess (our room-mate) log in information at the top. Her gold, her messages, her icon.

- Click Beastiary 4 more times -- Still showing Princess (can read her messages at this point as well)

- Click Messages -- Works the way it should.

He is on internet explorer. It seems a LOT of other people are having this issue, or something similar (appearing logged out, or suddenly logged into spouse/son/brother's accounts)

Is this a security issue?

Thanks for reading.


For the time being, can you please have them try clearing their cache using these instructions?

For those who are unable to connect, there's a second link you can try underneath the coliseum that leads to a different server connection. Some addons do not play nice with the default coliseum link.

We'll be keeping an eye on the coliseum server throughout the day. Thanks for bearing with us. Ping me or an admin (by using @username ) if the coliseum seems to be lagging and we'll look into it as soon as possible.

Thank you so much!

@Xhaztol Sure, thanks for getting back to me! My paypal and FR email are different, is there one you'd prefer over the other for me to email from?

In that case, contact us from your Flight Rising email address, and specify your Paypal email address and First/Last Name for verification. Thank you!
