PSA: How to protect your FR account
Jun 28, 2019, 10:30:48

We've added a new article to our Knowledge Base, How can I protect my account?

Protecting your Flight Rising is easy!

Log out of your account completely
If you're not actively playing Flight Rising you should log out of your account, especially if you share a device, use a public computer, or someone else is able to access your device.

Change your password
How long has it been since you last changed your passwords? It's best to change all your passwords from time to time, not just the one for your Flight Rising account.

Use a unique password
Don't use the same password for multiple logins! One password per account is best practice. This means your Flight Rising password should only be used for your Flight Rising account.

Use a strong password
Passwords like 12345, use your email address, the name of the website, etc are weak passwords.

Strong passwords use a combination of numbers, letters, and punctuation. Types of punctuation you can use are:
  • .
  • !
  • ?
  • -
  • _

Use a password manager
Two password management habits place your account at risk:
  1. Storing your passwords in plain text on your device.
  2. Allowing your browser to save your logins, especially if you share a device.
Best practice is to use a password manager to handle all of your logins. While we can't recommend a specific password manager, there are several available, paid and free to use, for every operating system and device.

Never share your log-in information
Not even with your partner, family, or friends.

It's against our Terms of Use and it puts your account at risk. You may break up, have a falling out, any number of interpersonal events. When someone else has your log-in details they can wreak havoc on your account and Flight Rising Support won't be able to provide assistance with any items, currency, or dragons removed from your account.

Dragon Search page 501
Jun 21, 2019, 07:37:25
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Mutron
Hello @gbot13,

There is currently a limit on the maximum page number you can navigate to, which as you have discovered is currently 500. Due to the way sorting search results works, it gets more and more costly to present you with a page of results as the page number goes up.

I apologize that it is interfering with what you are trying to accomplish! There has to be some sort of limit, and we may revisit the exact limit in the future, but I don't think it will be feasible to increase it enough to page through all 8 digit G1 dragons.

In the mean time I can only recommend refining your query so there are fewer than 10,000 results if you want to page through all of them.
How do you obtain eggs from other elemen
Jun 20, 2019, 12:41:02
Forum Post | Help Center | By Undel
If you're interested in an easier way to get dragons (not eggs) of other elements, players sell their dragons to other players on the auction house. If you're not specifically looking for a first gen, this is the easiest way to get dragons of other elements.

I think mass pinging any account, not just dieties, would be a problem from a server load perspective if players are trying to all send the forum posts and associated pings at the same time? I suspect that is what Aequorin is alluding to with the system considerations.

Correct. This wouldn't be a matter of spam, but our Terms of Use, under exploiting a site feature.

As no one here was deliberately trying to harm the site by exploiting the forum ping system, clarification was given without the possibility of account or forum penalties hanging overhead.

That being said, I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread as the question has been answered.

Hello all! Regarding the topic, I have to put my 'No Fun' hat on.

Mass pinging deities could have a negative or harmful impact on the site. It's best to err on the side of caution and not do it. We risk creating an issue that would require we pull engineers off feature or quality of life work to fix it, delaying overall site development. /nofunhatoff

Hibernal Den Bug?
Jun 17, 2019, 14:19:02
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
Hi @Silverpelt60

Unlike breeding cooldowns, which tick down at rollover, hibernation cooldowns are based on the exact time a dragon was removed from the den.

I see that Opal's hibernation cooldown will end about 2 and a half hours sooner than Senex.

Opal will be able to return to your den at 8:15 6/17 (tomorrow)
Senex will be able to return to your den at 10:54 6/17 (also tomorrow)

I suspect that when you saw Opal at "1 day" and Senex at "2 days", it was shortly after Opal crossed the 1 day threshold.

Te see the exact time a dragon can return to your den, hover over their hibernation cooldown icon in your lair.

Update: Gem Purchases
Jun 14, 2019, 06:31:48
After observing, it appears that while delays occurred for purchases between approximately 04:30 and 05:05 Server Time today, they did eventually resolve, most within approximately an hour. As a result we have re-opened gem sales, with a caution about potential delivery delays.

The good news is that we are now receiving the IPNs for affected purchases were made on the 11th and 12th. At the rate it is going, we expect that the majority of gems purchased during this period will be fully delivered by later today.

Gem purchases are available again, but please be advised that there may be delays lasting over an hour before you receive your gems. Additionally, gem purchases made the 11th and 12th are slowly being delivered. We are still closely monitoring the situation. More info here.

eyo familiar lore questions.
Jun 13, 2019, 19:31:54
Familiar sizes vary greatly. A few are as large or larger than their dragon counterparts depending on the breed of dragon. For the ones that are semi-humanoid, their human looking parts are sized about the same as a person would be. That said, a centaur (due to all that horse back there) will be larger than a Raptorik or a Faun.

@Undel Will we get refunds for our double charges?

@heart If you double paid thinking that it did not go through, you can be refunded by putting in a support ticket. Please hold onto the additional gems that will be awarded, as customer support will retrieve those when sending a refund.

Right now we've tentatively reenabled gem purchases, as Paypal has indicated that this issue should not hit future purchases.

We are working with and waiting on Paypal to get us the information we need to force through the gem purchases that are in limbo from those affected on the 11th and 12th. Our sincere apologies for this delay. Getting this resolved is our top priority.
Update: Gem Purchases
Jun 13, 2019, 16:36:16
After reaching out to PayPal, we have tentatively re-enabled gem sales. We are closely monitoring the gem purchasing system to see if any errors similar to the ones that occurred earlier this week appear. We are prepared to turn gem sales off without warning if they do.

PayPal is aware of all players affected by delayed gem transactions during the 11th and the 12th, and they are actively working on a resolution. We are currently waiting on PayPal to resolve these cases because, as stated above, we are not able to manually confirm payment records for the affected transactions. This is due to an ongoing technical issue at PayPal.

Again, if you paid for gems, you will definitely receive them! Thank you again for your patience. We know this is very frustrating. Further updates will be provided when we learn more.

[T] Dressing Room - Bug Reports
Jun 13, 2019, 14:26:23
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
Hi @Arkanjel

Unfortunately, this can happen when an outfit is tied to a dragon that is later breed changed to an ancient or given a Scroll of Eternal Youth.

Since hatchlings and ancients aren't supported in the dressing room, that outfit breaks.

You can avoid this by using mannequins for saved outfits, or not using dragons that may be traded/sold.

Fortunately, I was able to fix this specific outfit by switching it to a mannequin Coatl, but that may not always be something that can be repaired.

If you have other outfits that are tied to traded/sold dragons, I would recommend updating them with mannequins.

Note: the outfit preview in your post should fix itself after a while, but you should be able to speed that along by editing your post.

Update: Gem Purchases
Jun 13, 2019, 07:50:22
Hello everyone! We have an update for you regarding pending gem purchases made since the 11th.

At this time, gem purchases remain disabled as PayPal is experiencing major technical problems with their service. Unfortunately, these problems are also temporarily preventing us from fulfilling a number of gem purchases made on the 11th and 12th.

This is because gem deliveries normally rely on PayPal's servers sending our servers an IPN message confirming payment. Right now, the problems at PayPal are preventing those messages from arriving at our server. Not only are they not sending us that information, the ongoing problems are preventing us from even seeing records confirming your payment. Because we can't see records confirming payment was made, we are unable to manually fulfill gem purchases.

Once PayPal resolves their problems, we'll be able to reconcile our purchase history with theirs and deliver gems to all players with outstanding gem purchases.

Please rest assured that if you paid for gems, you will receive them! We're sorry for the negative impact this is having on your Flight Rising experience, and thank you for your patience. We're actively monitoring the situation and will provide you with updates as more information becomes available.
Sunparched Prowl

Hello everyone! Please make sure your replies remain on topic for this announcement. Off-topic replies will be removed. Thank you!
Sunparched Prowl
Jun 13, 2019, 05:55:21

The herds are on the move and their numbers are exploding. Novice and expert hunters alike will have an easy time scoring game if they stick to tall grasses and rocky outcrops.

Sunparched Prowl, one of Flight Rising's quarterly "micro-holidays", is in full swing! From Thursday, June 13th (06:00 Server Time) to Monday, June 17th (06:00 Server Time), all players will experience a couple of battle-related boosts!

Bountiful Battles

For the duration of Sunparched Prowl, all all Coliseum enemies will have the chance to drop meat food items in addition to their normal loot. Dragon clans everywhere are taking this time to stock up on shanks, flanks, ribs, haunches, steaks, and more to keep them satisfied until the autumn.

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!

Take Care in the Tall Grass

Dragonkind are not the only ones taking advantage of the burgeoning herds and expanding flocks. As the savannas, forests, and tundras play host to many more hooves than usual, calculating cats join the prowl. A couple species of wildcat use their expert eyes and noses to track small and large game alike. For the duration of Sunparched Prowl, these clever familiars will drop fairly commonly in the Coliseum and rarely during Hunting. Once the herds numbers have been responsibly culled, they'll go back into hiding, but there's always a chance you may run into one or two while Hunting.

Thank you for your patience everyone. Paypal is having some issues and it's making some transactions take a while to go through. Paypal is not sending the ipn information to our site. (it's not talking to our website like it should)

We are looking into this and have disabled paypal payments until their service is back up to speed. We were not the only site affected by this issue, so hopefully it will be resolved soon.

Right now we cannot force the gems through because some of these payments are not showing up in our paypal history, so there's no ipn for us to force resend to the site or way for us to verify. (long story short, paypal's not giving us the information we need.)

We are very sorry for the delay! Please rest assured that if you paid for gems, you will receive them! Thank you again for your patience!

As always, please create a ticket using Contact Us if your gems do not appear by 24 hours after the purchase time. However, please note that at the moment we are waiting on Paypal to address issues with its service, so there may be delays getting your gems to you even with a ticket.

I apologize for the inconvenience and delay this has caused.

Dragons NOT Related Suddenly Related
Jun 11, 2019, 11:38:48
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
Hi @Div3rge

I'm sorry this happened to you. We have triple checked the breeding and Assay Bloodlines code to confirm the following:

- Both tools use the same code to determine whether dragons are related. This is to assure consistency and accuracy. If the tool finds a common ancestor for 2 dragons in 1 tool, it will find that common ancestor in the other.

- We are not aware of any discrepancies between breeding and assay bloodlines since the beginning of 2017. Any bugs reported along those lines have been fixed.

- The dragons in question are related and Assay Bloodlines accurately reports them as such.

- Changing a dragon's breed does not alter ancestry results.

- We only check for a breed conflict after checking ancestry.

Since the code that determines ancestry has not changed, I believe that this is not a case where the tool misreported. If a false positive or false negative somehow occurred, both tools use the same code and would result in the same false answer.

Once again, I'm sorry this happened, but the tool itself is working as expected.
Gaoler/Ancient genes vs daily bonuses?
Jun 11, 2019, 00:27:36
@AlphaSobek - While they look similar to their modern counterparts, parallel genes are still technically their own thing (lower cost, different name, different code).

So they don't count as a match for bonus purposes.
Gaoler/Ancient genes vs daily bonuses?
Jun 10, 2019, 23:01:41
So you don't have to remain in suspense - Gaoler genes are not currently in the pool for possible genes for exalt bonuses.

Since they are both very rare, and only available for a single breed, they would be a pretty unfortunate bonus.
