Thread is unlocked. Most posts were removed under standard forum moderation. We removed comments that contained inflammatory or accusatory language that invites escalating discussion, rather than continue dialogue focused on constructive feedback. However, we realize these comments may be more of an initial response to the announcement, and ultimately coming from a place of good intentions. You will not be penalized for those removed replies.

Posts quoting removed posts were also removed. This is also standard forum moderation.

A very small number of forum warnings for baiting/trolling others and posting low effort spam will be going out shortly. These messages are unrelated to the posts referenced above.

Thank you for your patience, and for your understanding, while we reviewed the thread.

Are we going to see items removed during the May cycle as well? What's the process and decision making going into which items get removed? Are you able to see the raw stats of which items get bought more often than others (outside of the Hot Items tab?)

There are no plans to add more items to the cycle in May. This is not double removal, this is an additional week to have cycled items back that is predictable for our players and can now be planned around without it being a mystery.

These items were chosen because they were some of the oldest items in the gem marketplace and have been around for almost a decade in a tab that's very full. They are all from the first year of release. After reading through the feedback here age will no longer be the sole basis for cycling items out, and we will likely be more choosy with what (if anything) gets added to the cycle pool each November.

We've talked it over and agree that not knowing when items will return from cycle is not great for our game or our players.

We will be adding in a predictable May cycled item return for a week to go alongside the predictable Cyber Monday cycled item return and gem sale. When our items return should not be a mystery.

The update post has the next gem cycle information added to the bottom, which will be May 8-15th.

Yay!! Always love an excuse to spend all my gems in one day. ;)

One question, though: the individual bird apparel and the bundle containing all six are both listed as cycling, but only the individual Daredevil Covers are listed as cycling and not the corresponding bundle -- does this mean that the Daredevil's Covers Bundle won't be cycling out along with its individual pieces, or was it just missed off the list and will in fact be cycling out too?


Thank you for the catch. Yes, the bundle should cycle as well. I will get that updated.

The gem marketplace is in no danger of being emptied out. It is also worth mentioning that we have no plans to add additional items from the specialty or breeds/genes tabs to the cycle.

Our apparel tabs are 20 pages deep in the gem marketplace, and we decided to add some of the apparel from the first year of FR to the cycle this year so that we can keep things fresh. We targeted the apparel tab specifically because of how many items are in it. And yes, cycling items does generate interest and buzz when they return!

You can count on items cycling (at minimum) every Cyber Monday for a week reliably.

So you can expect another cyber Monday gem bonus and item cycle :-)
Undertide Gene Error Thread

All posts above this reply have been addressed if errors were present, with the exception of the wings on Undertide M secondary genes. They all have what was supposed to be a void filled in, and outputting corrections for these will take some time.

If a post was not addressed it means that we have audited the art and this is the intended effect. Please note that multi-gaze layering poorly with line-breaking tertiaries is not an intended effect, but is a technical limitation of our layering system.

Arcane Primal on the Hatchling pose looks wonky in several ways. It looks like there's a glow effect that wasn't erased where horns/fins are in front of the eyes, and there's some wonky random erased spots in the glowy areas. Scry is Obsidian to show the contrast.



Additionally, Arcane Primal on both adult poses (and tbh the hatchling pose) looks very bright. I think the opacity layer was turned up too high. It's most noticeable on the Female pose.

The glow brightness may be partially because it's viewed on obsidian, (Other breeds are constructed in the same way and also look very bright when viewed against something so dark) but there are some strange artifacting pixels that I can correct. A correction has been uploaded, but it may take a period of time before the site's internal cache catches up.



NightmareJudge wrote on 2022-11-22 12:45:26:
Several elements of Multi-gaze appear to have the wrong coloration for the main eye on adult Undertide dragons. While Multi-gaze is usually at least similar to the element's Common eye type, Undertide dragons' main eyes are much more brightly-colored than the Multi-gaze eyes they're paired with. The contrast is more noticeable for some than others.

This error affects:

Earth on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Plague on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Water on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Lightning on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Shadow on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Light on adult males & females (vs. Common)
Arcane on adult males & females (vs. Common)

Spots that I'm assuming were meant to be erased, because stained does not affect them.

This one is a work in progress, and will take a while to fix - looks like these holes were missed on every secondary gene.

Sadly, the multi gaze and line breaking tertiary issue is a technical limitation. Eyes must always layer over the primary, secondary, and tertiary genes, and they are not contextually aware of what is below them and able to alter their shape to accommodate. This is a limitation with all of our dragons that have line breaking tertiaries.

We’re excited to announce that the next addition to our ancient breeds system, the Undertide, have now been launched. Ancient Breeds are a way for the Flight Rising team to release more regular dragon content, with a few restrictions to make that possible. You can read about the ancient breed system in our Developer Update on the subject.


Undertide
Voluntarily estranged from their deity and the world, Undertide dragons have found a new family deep beneath the waves. When the Tidelord falls silent, they emerge to aid in the search for the sake of dragonkind and their found family.

[Alt text: Image is of three Undertide dragons displaying the hatchling art, the male pose art, and the female pose art.]

You can read more about the emergence of Undertide in our short story, Echoes of the Deep, and gain some knowledge of their characteristics in the Encyclopedia.
echoesofthedeep.png undertideencyclopedia.png




If you’re looking to change your dragons into Undertide , breed change scrolls may be unearthed in the Deepsea Dive in Arlo's Ancient Artifacts.


To celebrate the debut of the Undertidebreed, all active players can visit Galore’s Glorious Gifts and pick up two (2) free Clanbound Undertide breed change scrolls to welcome these deepsea leviathans into their lairs!


You will have until Tuesday, November 29th @ 06:00 server time to claim your gifts.



Undertide Genes: Unique & Parallel
It wouldn't be an Ancient Breed release without an impressive slate of unique and parallel genes!
undertidegenes.gif
[Alt text: Image is a gif of an Undertide dragon in an underwater scene. The gif part is the rotation of various Undertide genes as a preview for players.]

Unique Genes
You can pick up the following unique Undertide genes in the Treasure & Gem Marketplace:



You can create the following unique Undertide genes using Baldwin’s Bubbling Brew:



You can find the following unique Undertide genes by battling monsters in the Coliseum:





Parallel Genes
In addition to the unique genes above, Undertide can also exhibit some parallel genes that resemble those found in modern dragons. These genes will be available through the same type of gameplay (with the exception of boulder, myrid, tide, and foam, which are available through Baldwin) that their modern counterparts are. The parallel genes releasing today are:








If you encounter any errors in the Undertide breed, please report them in this thread and we will address them in a timely manner. This thread is for the new Undertide breed genes only.

This thread is to track any gene errors that occur with the new Undertide Breed. This thread is for this breed only.

Many genes have accommodations for dragon anatomy where one breed is every so slightly different than others because it worked better for them. These are not considered errors.

Please report any errors you encounter and we will do our best to correct them in a timely manner.


Sadly, the multi gaze and line breaking tertiary issue is a technical limitation. Eyes must always layer over the primary, secondary, and tertiary genes, and they are not contextually aware of what is below them and able to alter their shape to accommodate.

@Almedha I reject the fact that they were rejected! that's dumb! you mean to tell me there are dozens of games that have censorship systems that are able to detect when players use accents and symbols to "swear" and still allow those accents and symbols in other words but FR can't do that? I mean, if it was like some kind of coding issue like someone suggested in the post I made in the suggestions forum, that would at least make more sense than this but this excuse just feels lazy to me, and I'm not sorry for saying that. Of course, I've yet to come across an actual mod or dev excuse so none of us can say for sure, but still.

EDIT: someone on my other post found the response where the devs basically admitted that the whole reason for this is censorship and filtering, I am IRATE right now.

https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/sug/3179759#post_52581370

Hello @PantasticalCat, thank you for your feedback. I understand how this can feel like a personal slight and why it would make you feel irate. I apologize for any frustration caused by our content moderation policies.

These decisions are made due to the repeated choices made by players acting in bad faith or malice, exploiting the fact we are a small team unable to support a multi-lingual platform at this time. We've had to clean up some truly vile, deplorable dragon names and broadcasts that sat for far too long because players were able to circumvent our rules via special characters.

As many here have noted, special characters for multilingual use are still possible in the forums—just not in dragon names (which show up on the front page) or broadcasts. Moderating a platform with significant user-generated content is a constant balancing act, where each decision is weighed between the well-being of the community, the well-being of the employees tasked with content moderation and clean-up, and the company. We are doing our best with the resources we have.

I hope this information helps clarify any concerns or confusion surrounding our decisions. As this is ultimately a moderation and policy issue, I am locking this thread. If you would like to make a suggestion regarding policy changes, you can do so through Contact Us.
