Dev Update: Hoard & Vault
Sep 21, 2020, 10:00:25
devupdate.png

It's that time again! Take a peek at our latest work in revamping the Hoard and Vault, including major improvements to searching, navigation, organization, and item usage.




Hoard/Vault Revamp

Today's Developer Update will focus on our revamp of the Hoard and Vault systems, both of which are receiving significant improvements from top-to-bottom!



Improved Searching and Filtering

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

So, with that said, let's get down to it! We're excited to share with you the different ways that the Hoard and Vault will soon support in narrowing down your item searching, including:

  • Searching by name
  • Filtering by stack size
  • Filtering by item subcategory
  • Filtering by item rarity
  • Sorting items alphabetically

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 will expand the amount of available functions you can perform on a single stack of items.

We handle this through our 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'll be able to dismiss this window by clicking or tapping anywhere else on the page.

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're increasing 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 will lock all instances of the item in your Hoard from being able to be sold for treasure. 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 directly from the Hoard.


Favorite

This toggle will favorite 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 are important to you. Favorite items will be denoted by the yellow star in the top right corner of the item container.

prev_hv_lockitem.png

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're launching 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 will be 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 will not be able to manipulate a virtual stack like you would 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'll be able to 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 will have that usage case denoted at the bottom of their container in the form of colorized bars and icons. Mousing over those bars will tell you what the items 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 will now be 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 will also include a brand new option in our Self-Service support menu. If you make a mistake in hoard-selling an item or multiple items, it will be 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, 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

That's all we've got to show you today; thank you for reading! We're putting the finishing touches on this feature, so look out for the Hoard/Vault Revamp launch soon!

I'm not quite sure if this is an actual typo, but in the Tundra's encyclopedia information, it states:

It is an error. Some breeds don't show up in clan profile notifications. This is something that the engineering team will need to correct, but likely will not happen until we revamp the clan profile page so that we're not doing the work twice! Thank you for the report.

In my hoard, I have one of ^these^ and it has some weird question mark thingy, but when I put it in code, it doesn't?

I'm pretty sure it may just be bugged for the one I have, but I have no idea-

I'm having the same problem with the Horn of Plenty. Idk if it's worth noting but this screenshot's from the coli victory screen rather than my hoard. Looks normal when linked on the forum for me too.

Edit: Well, almost the same problem? The bugged character in my case is a long dash rather than a space.

I can't get these to show up in regular tooltips, but I'll take your word for it that the coliseum is having trouble! I've backed out the space and dash that were in there and put in a fresh one. I hope this resolves the issue! It may take up to an hour for the site's internal tooltip cache to catch up. Thank you!

This appears to have been corrected? Or it's a weird typo that activated somehow. But I saw it earlier while playing in the scrying workshop, and thought I'd report it just in case. I didn't notice for a while because I was playing with her as ancient breeds, but then I went back to modern ones, I saw "Viper". Not "Vipera". No "A" at the end. For some reason.

unknown.png

Opening new tabs, even of the same dragons, shows it as "Vipera", as it should. So I don't know if it's still an issue or not. But like I said, figured I'd mention it just in case.

I can't seem to reproduce this. Perhaps another admin got to it earlier?

Yeah! I'm happy about this! I might use it on Hope. :)

But I had a question. Sorry if this has been asked before, but there's a ton of people reacting... Anyway, it mentions that in order to apply the scroll, the dragon must not be wearing a skin. So does the scroll make it so that dragon can never wear a skin? Or is it just that in order to switch between poses, any incompatible skins will be removed?

The skin has to be removed to change the pose. Once the pose is changed you can put a new skin (that matches the artwork) on.

Skins have to be taken off before you swap because they are designed for the artwork of each pose, and would not work on the opposite pose.

banner_silhouetteisneedlesslydifficulttospell.png

Our newest specialty item, the Silhouette Scroll, is now live! When this magical scroll is applied to a dragon, it permanently unlocks a toggle that allows the dragon to swap between both adult artwork variants available for their breed.




Silhouette Scroll

It is now possible to swap a dragon's pose by applying our newest specialty item: the Silhouette Scroll. Unlike many specialty items, this magical scroll, once used on a dragon, unlocks a permanent toggle that allows you to swap back and forth between either variant of the adult artwork for their breed.

(NOTE: When we say "permanently", we mean it! Even if you choose to sell or trade the dragon, it will retain its Silhouette Scroll toggle forever.)

This item is now stocking in the Gem Marketplace.



The functionality this item offers has been a heavy favorite in our Suggestions Forum for a long time and we're glad to have been able to implement it.



Item Details

The first application of the item will automatically swap your dragon's pose. If you wish to swap back it back, the toggle can be found within that individual dragon's Customize page.

prev_artworktoggle.png


In order to apply a Silhouette Scroll, your dragon must meet the following criteria:
  • Dragon must not be wearing a skin.
  • Dragon must not be a hatchling.
  • Dragon must not be part of a pending Crossroads trade.
  • Dragon must not be listed on the Auction House.


Because this item modifies the artwork of a dragon, we understand there may be potential for scamming. To counter this, we've implemented the following conditions:
  • In order to sell the dragon on the Auction House, the artwork toggle must be reset to its default.
  • In order to trade the dragon in the Crossroads, the artwork toggle must be reset to its default.
  • In many places where the dragon and its details are shown (Auction House, Lair, Search), the Silhouette Scroll functionality will be represented by a status icon. This icon indicates that the dragon has had the scroll applied to them, not necessarily that their artwork is currently in a swapped state.

Oh no :(

Hiveworks has been notified and we're looking into this! In the meantime, please try giving your cache a full clear to see if it helps.

Thank you for the report @Severynn

Since this name (Boles?aw) is using invalid characters, we've updated it to "Boleslaw" instead.

Hello @iiSwizzle -- That is just a visual effect where the cached meter has not caught up to your dragons being fed. If you feed your dragons (which should cost 0 food points as they are all fed) it should update!

okey here me out, i know i may sound like crazy but what if WHAT IF these dragon breed themes are a countdown to the new breed annoucement

isn't it suspicious... WHAT ARE U HIDING FR STAFF?!?

Nope. Breed themes are popular themes.

I know hype can be fun, but when we hype/tease about a breed or feature release, we'll be clear about it. As far as Theme Week themes go, themes may complement a recent release, but they are not and will not be countdown teasers.

The site will be in a blackout maintenance starting at 07:30 server time TODAY September 14th. This maintenance is for critical back-end work and will last about 90 minutes.
About Monday's maintenance

Oh hey, in 50 minutes the site will be in a blackout maintenance for approximately 90 minutes. Because this looks like the maintenance that typically has a big release following it, I want to be clear—this is for critical back-end work and there will not be a feature released following the conclusion of maintenance.
Adventure Mode??

At the same time, aeroquin's post makes it sound like it's in the front part of their queue. -thinking emoji-

When we perform this type of maintenance, the top three player hype theories are new breed, world map update, and Adventure Mode.

As far as our current development priorities go, we're still refactoring the website (www/www1) and our developer updates cover what's at the front as well as current projects we're able to talk about or preview.

And for the refactor, I'll quote Kaepora from our anniversary update:

Site Refactor Update

As we mentioned above, the team has been hard at work over the last few years refactoring Flight Rising's codebase to run more efficiently. The goals of the refactor are to optimize and update the site's underlying framework to help future-proof it and allow for further evolution (either in functionality or style) later down the road. These refactors are not simple ports, but full revamps taking into account your feedback on ways to make each feature even better!

This dragon profile revamp was another huge notch in our progress, and we wanted to update everyone on just where we're at with the continuing conversion. As with everything, please know that our project is fluid, and some of these may increase or decrease in priority based on other development factors.

tl;dr: Adventure Mode has not been canceled. Yes it's in development, but it is very early in development. When we do have information to share with players about it, we'll update you.
