About Monday's maintenance
Sep 11, 2020, 10:18:31
It's not a new breed, it's not Adventure Mode, and it's not the world map update. Those are still in development.

Monday's maintenance will take longer than usual as it's for some critical backend work. During that time we need to "pull the curtains down," so to speak. In the past that's happened when we have a big feature release or update immediately following, but that's not the case here. We want to give you a heads up now, rather than later.

Hello @FlameAriiDraycon,
Quote:
I have a question for a mod and/or admin that doesn't really necessitate a ticket;

This is a question that should be sent to Support and should be asked by the individual who wants to engage in such content on or via our site, and not through a third party. That being said and as there seems to be confusion recently on this subject, I'll answer this here to make our stance on these types of role-play and content abundantly and publicly clear.

From our rules on Obscene & Vulgar content, specifically on violence and gore:
Quote:
Violence & Gore

Any reference to violence or injury must be in line with existing Flight Rising lore. Content focused on slavery, child abuse, excessive violence/gore, or communicates intent to commit a real-life act of violence is not allowed.

It does not matter if said role-play or off-site platform states "NSFW content is forbidden/prohibited" as the base definition of said content is strictly prohibited.

We are a video game website, specifically a virtual pet sim about pixel dragons and we welcome players as young as thirteen years old to be a part of our community. We will not allow our community to be used as a recruitment resource for sexual, violent, or sexually violent content. Attempting to do so using any area of our site—including but not limited to broadcasts, forum signatures, or our private message system—in order to try and circumvent our rules will lead to penalties up to and including account closure. As we've noted in our Role-play Policy:
Quote:
Flight Rising allows players as young as thirteen (13) years old on the website and in the forums. If we should find erotic roleplay is occurring in private messages and at least one of the players involved is under the age of eighteen (18), both accounts involved will be closed immediately and without the option for appeal.

These are our rules and use of our website constitutes agreement to abide by our rules. They are not up for discussion. They are not up for debate.

Thank you for your understanding and, most importantly, your cooperation in this matter.
Drakeharvest 2020

baldwinbombingdrakeharvest.png

Autumn has returned to the continent and dragons everywhere are reaping the benefits of a bountiful harvest season! Drakeharvest runs from September 10-14! Meanwhile, Baldwin is piecing together a crafty recipe...





Stitched and Patchwork
With autumn on the horizon, Baldwin and his alchemists are feeling the need to be cozy; literally! Alchemists levels 14 and above can learn the pattern to create a gene scroll to transmute your dragon a cozy patchwork hide.

These gene scrolls are NOT a part of Drakeharvest, and will be available to alchemists year-round!
becomethecoziness.png





Drakeharvest
Drakeharvest, Flight Rising's plant-themed "micro-holiday", is in full swing! From Thursday, September 10th (06:00 Server Time) to Monday, September 14th (06:00 Server Time), all players will experience a couple of battle-related boosts!



Bountiful Battles

For the duration of Drakeharvest, all enemies will have a chance to drop
Heavy Grainbasket or Horn of Plenty in addition to their regular loot
. Dragon clans everywhere are taking this time to stock up on fruits, veggies, fungi, seeds, flowers, and grains to prepare for the cold winter months.



Battle EXP Boost

During the event, all battles will yield 50% additional EXP, so now is a perfect time for dragons to train. Grab your newest team and head out into battle!


Plant-Pinching Pests

The prosperous harvest season doesn't come without its drawbacks. A common thieving species of crab has taken to the fields and foodstores in droves to make off with as much as they can carry! For the duration of Drakeharvest, Harvest Hardshell and Plantation Pincher familiars will drop fairly commonly in the Coliseum. Once the harvest has concluded, they'll go back into hiding, but may run into one or two while foraging.

That's going to be it for new things for the evening. I'm going to get a proper banner up and continue filling out the enemy groups for Redrock Cove. Thanks for chatting while we added content to the site!

The tooltips are all corrected, but the site's internal cache takes a while to catch up. It can be a bit frustrating to make a typo, immediately correct it, and then have the typo loitering around for an hour, but that's what happens sometimes! Should be corrected by morning for sure!

It wasn't quite up to the amount of enemies of newly launched venues. There's a lot of venues that need updating. Redrock's just got finished a bit earlier than others! We're still working on updating many areas of the coliseum!

Surf striders are getting a tooltip fix. Accidentally had the coast charger's info. The tooltip has been updated, but it may take a while for the site's cache to catch up.

@Lunarsnow Any change to the artwork's positioning is unintentional. If you can either create a post for this in the bug forum, or send me a PM, we'd like to get this working on screens of all sizes.

Some useful info would be:
- Is this a phone/tablet/laptop/desktop?
- If it's a phone or tablet, is the issue there both in vertical and horizontal orientations?
- Do you know your exact screen size and/or can you share a screenshot?
- Do you use a zoom setting in your browser?
- What browser are you using?

Thanks!

Today tomo’s grammar was off.
She said “south marsh podid claws drop of off which familiar?

From what I recall, familiars don’t drop off anything.

Also it should be, “South marsh podid claws drop off of which familiar?

Also, for the question above, there is another mistake the player above didn’t notice. If you click on the accent, you’ll notice it says, “itemid #14108”


This has been corrected on both fronts (listed as opponent and not familiar, and fixed word order). Thank you!

I appreciate your correct use of the letter ñ in words like "piñata," but whatever is rendering the text in the tooltips must not understand Unicode, because I see a "?" in a black diamond, rather than the ñ character. (Edit: This only applies to the item tooltip when the item is in my Hoard. The one on this page is now rendering correctly. Interesting.)

Hmmmm. That's a programmer question. I'll pass this along to Kaepora, as that's not something that I can correct.
