We have Holiday Surprises for you all! Our new Programmers, Farrier and Ryhn along with Felorin, Talzhemir, Emerald Flame, Gar, Kaeliny'Fiae, Tiggerbaby and many others have been working very hard to bring you an awesome update! This will be the first forced client update without the Fox and the new programmers are doing a wonderful job! We hadn't mentioned it before because we weren't sure we'd get it done in time. We hope to bring this to you sometime in the next few days! Without further ado, here are some shiny new toys for you! 

Update 28

New Avatars:

  • Noble Rodents: Avatar by Tiggerbaby, Portraits by Aries
  • Noble Hyoomans: Avatar by Tiggerbaby, Portraits by Kaeliny'Fiae
  • Panooki Ferian: Avatar by Tiggerbaby, Portraits by Tiponya
  • Naga Mythical (To be released in January): Avatar by Rat the Unloved and Kaeliny'Fiae, portraits by Talzhemir, and magic effect by Graphite.

New Features:

  • String DS: This is one of the most eagerly awaited and often requested features in Furcadia!!! Yes, this means that you can capture text that people say in your dreams then manipulate that text in variables and even save it off into your PhoenixSpeak! We are talking about high score lists, character sheets, dynamic signs, bulletin boards, message systems, comment boxes and so much more! This is a leap in DS almost as big as patches were to art in Furcadia! Thanks Felorin! A full list of new commands is listed at the bottom.
  • Animated Portraits (Client support): Here's a highly requested feature that we had ready for the 32-bit update, but Ryhn modified it so we can use it now. It may take a week or so before the web interface is ready for uploading but you can start making art! Up to 50 frame animated portraits will be possible using KitterSpeak! These will require a special portrait space to work.
  • Portrait Levels (Client Support): Yes, you will be able to wear your slightly juicier portraits soon! As soon as Ryhn gets the web side completed, you will be able to upload new portraits and instead of getting rejected if they don't meet a T+ Standard, they will just be upgraded to M16+ or A18+! You will only be able to see portraits that meet the dream standard you are in or lower.
  • New Dream Standard: A18+ is our newest dream standard and M16+ has been modified! Hawthorn and D2D will remain M16+ for violence and rough language. FurN will change to the new A18+ Standard for sexual content. The standards page will be updated soon with the changes for you to read over.
  • Dynamic Avatars: This is a big one! This will allow us to add new avatars without a client update. Doesn't sound like much, but this means that we can maintain a steady enough income by releasing new avatars. Now the programmers can concentrait on working on the big, new updates we are all waiting for! Thanks for making this Farrier!
  • Dream Bookmarks: Many have asked for this and we wanted it too! Now you can use Pounce to bookmark your favorite dreams, add notes about them and jump to them with just a click! At some point you will even be able to see in Pounce if the dream is uploaded or not!
  • Adult News Channel: We've been trying to find a way to do this one for ages! Now we can do news announcements that can only be seen in the M16+ and above dreams and main maps. This also allows players to announce their adult events too!
  • Event Beekin Support: The new Event Beekins have already been bringing you many fun events. Now we've added in an area for them in Naia and given them their own channel to make holding those events for all of you easier!
  • Graphic Changes: Added new Gryffe (Kaeliny'Fiae) and Furling (Safiye) laying possitions and a new Magic button for mythicals.
  • Various Bug Fixes: As always there's a whole bunch of bugs found by our awesome Bugge Hunters that are fixed for the update! This includes making the Dream Packages DS limits work up to 12,000 lines.
