undel entering 123 new skins vs server migration at 6:00 who will win

The server migration will. I'm definitely taking several breaks, can't upload at the same time as the migration, and I need to sleep at some point!

Is the description for a skin wrong or did someone win twice? (the chimera and owl ones have the same artist in the description)

An artist can win twice with this contest, but in this case the description is incorrect. The chimera was done by Chivalry. I updated teh tooltip immediately, but it will take some time for the site's internal cache to catch up.

Congrats to the winners -- excited to see all the entries!

And best of luck adding them all to the system in tandem with today's server upgrade -- that's some impressive work!

I'll be taking several breaks throughout the day (and sleeping at some point) so the server update will definitely be a break time!

123 skins.... hot damn, NotN gonna be LIT getting all those crates on top of event loot

The coliseum is now able to drop skins directly, so these skins will not have crates! Holiday skins still will though, as they drop from the gathering system and have gems and treasure attached.

Nice, but... when are we getting some fixes to the marketplace to filter out all these genes? There's four different Stained genes now, and it's still absurdly easy to mix up Ancient and Modern genes.

The marketplace is one of the areas of the site that still needs to be rewritten to our current programming standard. (any area that doesn't have www1 in the front basically). As with all revamps, when we do it, we'll certainly be taking player feedback into account. If you'd like to add your voice to suggestions for this or any other area of the site, the Suggestions forum is the best place: This helps us to consolidate feedback into one place and is our nearly one-stop shop for when we begin planning a feature, quality of life update, or revamp!

Several parallel genes have made their way to the ancient breeds, and the first coliseum scene has been introduced!

Parallel Genes for Ancients

Several parallel genes are now available for ancient breeds! Stained is now available for Banescale, Gaoler, and Veilspun in the Gem Marketplace. Underbelly for Veilspun, Laced for Gaoler, Edged for Gaoler, Tapir for Banescale, and Striation for Banescale are now available in the Treasure Marketplace.


Golem Workshop Scene
Opponents in the Golem Workshop venue of The Coliseum now have a rare chance to drop a new Scene: Golem Workshop!

I noticed that in this post you said that server migration will start at 6:00 site time, while in the site status it's posted as 9:00 start time. Typo?

Site Status has been updated to reflect the correct time: 06:00 server time! Thank you!

Upcoming Server Migration
Dec 01, 2020, 16:40:44
We've got some exciting news to share with you! Over the next week, and ahead of the Frigidfin Expedition and Night of the Nocturne events, we're upgrading our servers!

Some of you might remember the last time the site had to transfer to new hardware. That was due to our current host acquiring our original host. We had a limited amount of time to prep and the transfer had to happen on the host company's schedule. This time we're upgrading our hardware and it's happening on our schedule. What this means for you is that instead of us taking the Flight Rising site down for an entire day (or days!), this migration will happen over the course of multiple maintenance periods.

Some important points to keep in mind as we move forward with the transfer:
  1. We're moving the Flight Rising website to new server hardware.
  2. This hardware has better specifications for Flight Rising's infrastructure needs.
  3. This will happen over a series of maintenances to prevent taking the site down for entire day(s).
  4. Some maintenances will be of an indeterminate length.
  5. We're doing this over a period of time instead of all at once, because we can.
  6. Shortly before and for a short while after each maintenance, gem purchases will be disabled to avoid gem delivery issues or dropped purchases.
  7. The first maintenance will start on Thursday December 3rd at 06:00 server time.
  8. The second migration maintenance will be on Monday December 7th at 06:00 server time.

If another maintenance is needed, it will be on either Tuesday the 8th or Wednesday the 9th ahead of the mini-holiday. Should a migration maintenance be needed after that—barring an urgent or emergency issue—it will happen in between the Frigidfin Expedition and Night of the Nocturne.

We'll keep you updated on the progress of the server migration as we go. Thank you for your patience while we work to get the site up, over, and running on the improved hardware!

@Sancuarium, hanging in there. Reading through Veilspun feedback (thank you!), prepping updates, and plotting planning. You know, the usual.

@Flutterbi, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a parent is hard, please know you're not alone in this.

*not in general, the title limit was too short.

What's the most stereotypical *your flight* thing you've done?

I'm in wind, the most stereotypical windy thing I've ever done was forgetting I had to pack for my trip to the other side of the globe until an hour before I had to leave.

Oh for your flight.

I was going to say "have nightmares of Facebook loading wheels on the brand page" but that's more a general Flight Rising thing for me, not specific to a flight.

The harsh drop off kinda gives it the finality of being taken away never to be heard from again. I prefer it.

Corviknight wrote on 2020-11-13 05:39:19:
The thing is - they're not just taking you *away*

By hypnotizing you, they're taking you as well. You're here, but you're still enthralled. It's figurative AND literal, while the edit is just literal.

I can confirm the A/A/B convention and its disruptive harshness is intentional. It's not meant to be a standard nursery rhyme.

That being said, @MegaAbsols, thank you for your feedback. It means a lot to hear you enjoyed it.

Typo on marketplace items

The hover price is the hoard sell value, not the marketplace value, which is 10x that! So if you want to know how much any item would sell for in the marketplace, just add a 0!

We have done our best to track down the Veilspun dragons that got the 25 day breeding cooldown instead of the 20, even those that used a Swiftbrood Boon. I believe the dragons you both linked to are correct now. Let me know if something still looks off. Thanks!

Veilspun's breeding cooldown has been corrected to 20 days, from 25. Dragons bred before this fix have had their breeding cooldown corrected.

I couldn't resist booning the nest and the hatchlings are so adorable. Is it just me or doe the hatchling's head looks like a my little pony?

But we're trying to be transparent with fixes! (It's fixed for a second time, but may take a moment to populate!)
