-LOCKED - September Development Update #25
Posted on 2020-09-11 18:55:52

Blocking System Adjustments


We've patched a few minor holes with the blocking system in regards to site event features.

* You can no longer PVP with players who have blocked you.
* September: you can no longer chase or stomp locusts within dens of players who have blocked you.
* September: you can no longer find the Horses of the Apocalypse on dens of players who have blocked you.
* October: as you can no longer PVP with blocked players, you can no longer infect players who have blocked you with rabies.
* December: you can no longer build snuhlions on dens of players who have blocked you.
* December: you can no longer give gifts or poops on dens of players who have blocked you.

We hope that this fully covers all event features that involve player-to-player interactions.

New Gems!


Every two years, we add a new set of gems to refresh the event crafting pool. A pair of gems matches one of the presented events—they have unique recipes and appear more often in Explore during that event! The matching applicators for these new gems will appear in 2021. For now, start collecting!

New Event Markings!



2020-september-gregariousmarks.jpg


We've added a new crafting recipe for an applicator called Gregarious Swarm. This applicator will let you add one of four random Gregarious markings to your lions! It requires 25 x Locust Wings to be crafted, and can apply these four markings:
* Gregarious Brindle
* Gregarious Glaze
* Gregarious Reverse Vitiligo Mash
* Gregarious Undersides


SEPARATION

New Combo Mane Colour!



2020-september_soulmane.jpg


The Soul mane colour is now possible to obtain while breeding for a Soul base!

To refresh your memory on how combo mane colours work...
When breeding Ebony x Ivory, you have a chance of spawning a Soul-based cub. When a Soul-based cub is produced, there is a 50% chance that the cub will also pop up with a matching Soul mane colour! This is the only way to produce this mane colour without at least one parent having it.

If a lion already has the mane colour and wants to breed, there's a normal mane colour passing chance, so you can pass the beautiful Soul mane colour onto any future cubs. The cubs do not need to have the matching Soul base in order to pass the Soul mane colour. Already having the mane colour itself is enough to potentially pass it onto future offspring!

Tags!
Shad has added 17 new tags this month in the Beetles, Breeding, Miscellaneous ➜ NPCs, and September categories!

Poll Results - Looks like Wolf theme won! ... But, we see that Black Panther was close second - how about we make Wolf theme the main Black Friday decors, and Black Panther accents in Oasis, like we did with some other special Decors for Black Friday in the past? :D

NEW POLL - Will you check out Wolvden once it comes out next month? :O

Is it true that there will be a special deal for Gold Cones during the Wolvden Early Access release? (Between Sep. 25th to Oct. 9th)

Admin Response:
Yes, this is indeed true!
