July Newsletter

Happy July!

 As always, before we dive into what’s in store for this month, make sure to check out this rollover's winners in our Winner’s Showcase!
Note: The DTA winner from last month has not been decided on yet, but will be added there within the next couple of days!

 

New Summer Layout:

In conjunction with this month's event, we are rolling out a temporary layout change for the duration of the event! This "darkmode" theme is a fun, seasonal change but don't worry -- the old layout will return in September!

 

New Event: Firefly Catching

To celebrate summer’s arrival we are rolling out a special 2 month event where you visit daily to hide a new set of fireflies and then track them down across the site! Fireflies can be found all around but the hints provided should help send you in the right direction. If you can’t find them all, or you miss a day, don’t worry! You will have adequate time to continue to grow your firefly collection until the September rollover.

What prizes are there, do you ask? You’ll have to wait until the 14th to begin feeding your firefly collection and find out! The more fireflies you collect, the better chance at rarer prizes! Check it out here.

 

New ARPG Memory & Green Acres Expansion: Trellises

The trellises are the fifth and final expansion of the Green Acres ARPG. Inside the trellises you will find bushes, vines, and shrubby plants! Trellises function much like the existing Green Acres locations with a small twist: You plant your starter, water to grow into a bush, and harvest. After 3 harvests, your bush will deplete and you will need to plant a new starter!

Some existing crops (Blueberries, Roses, Begonias, and Strooberries) have been relocated and there are new Starters to find in the Farmer’s Market for the Summer season! If you owned any of the existing seeds you will find they are now Starters in your inventory. If you had any of the existing seeds planted, they were harvested for you during maintenance regardless of how many waters they had! You will find your produce harvested in your inventory and logs.

Note: Blueberry Starters will be re-sellable for the 25 crumbs per they were purchasable for as seeds for the month of July. If you plan to unlock the Trellises’ though we encourage you to hold onto them as they are more expensive to purchase in their Starter form! Begonia, Rose, and Strooberry Starters are all attained through special means and thus will not be resellable (but can of course be traded!)

 

New Shops:

Three new shops have opened up in Midveil!

Brew La La - A small cafe run by the lovely Bonnie Bluebird serves caffeinated delicacies and exciting new recipes. 

Sunset Shanty - A new NPC, Kiwi, has turned up and decided to share their lovely gift baskets with all of Midveil!

Ursula’s Oddities - Ursula is expanding her brand to … weird, experimental pets and mutations? This shop is tucked away in Ursula’s lab so you may have to look around to find it!

 

Update: Activity Bonuses

Activity bonuses are still on hold this month but our goal is to have the updated activity system ready by next month’s rollover!

 

As always please report any bugs to the approriate Discord channel or forums section!

Summer Is Here!

Seasonal rollover is complete; those who had fully grown trees in their Orchard will now find Lumber in their inventories from the seasonal Orchard clear out (you can check your Inventory Logs to see how much)!

Summer Seeds are now in the Farmer's Market and seasonal prizes (such as those for Fishing) are now in effect as well.

Seasonal Rollover

Happy (almost) Summer Solstice all! Just a reminder that Spring officially turns to Summer in Midveil tonight at midnight EST, so if you have a Woodchuck pet now would be the time to cut down your Orchard trees for bonus Lumber!

Cake Off Prize Adjustment

After reading your suggestions and reviewing the prize selection of the Celebration Mutation Goodie Bag given out to users who earned 200+ points in the Cake Off Event, we agree that the Snowcone Surprise should have been omitted as it is now a craftable mutation item.

To correct this, we are officially turning the prize into "Celebration Mutation Goodie Bag + Snowcone Surprise" for that tier! As such, any user who opened their Goodie Bag to receive a Snowcone Surprise will receive a replacement Goodie Bag without the Snowcone as a potential prize. Users who received a different prize (or have not yet opened their bag) will receive a free Snowcone Surprise! (If you have not yet opened your bag, the Snowcone is no longer in your prize pool so no worries there!)

You can look for these to begin arriving in your inventories shortly along with an accompanying notification.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to more fun events!

 

Please Note: This only applies to Celebration Mutation Goodie Bags obtained during the Cake Off Event, not those obtained from the FTO Event Goodie Bags as the Snowcone was an intended option for those!
