[January 27, 2016] Game Updates

Wow, it's really been a while, huh?

I'll go ahead and list what site updates I can, from newest to oldest. How about those payout increases?

[ January 22, 2016 ] HI1 Code Base Update!:
    The following code changes have been made on Horse Isle 1! Not everyone will appreciate all of them, but for the most part they should be welcome. We made a few slight economy tweaks, but stopped short of doing much more. We also know the color/height magics are of mixed review, but their use should be pretty rare, considering price and benefit. Players can decide for themselves whether a horse with magic residue is worth more or less going forward. In any case, we hope you enjoy the following changes made to the Secret Land of Horses!

QUIT GAME Button Protected: It now is faded out. You now have to click twice to exit cleanly. (To prevent mis-clicks.)

Added Magic Beans: $1b - Similar to unicorn pellets, but they will tweak the height of your horse to any random natural height the breed comes in! Take note it's a random gamble! Unlimited quantity usable.

Added Magic Droplets: $1b - Similar to unicorn pellets, but they will randomly change the color of your horse to any naturally available color! Take note it's a random gamble! Unlimited quantity usable.

Added Horse Profile Info: Magic Residue tracking. Each pellet/bean/droplet used will add one to this count shown on horse profiles. THIS WILL ONLY COUNT GOING FORWARD. Previous Pellet uses will not have registered. Horse profiles will also show number of special treats fed, if any.

Horse Sorting:
Competition Entry should now hide retired horses and otherwise list in normal Horse List order.
Competition Entry will hide any horses who are not saddled.
Trainers will only show horses marked as TRAINING and then alphabetically.
Vet will list horses based on health.
Farrier will now list in normal horse list order.

Profile Code Color Additions:
[turquoise], [gold], [fuchsia], [azure], [lilac], [umber], [rose], [forest], [beige], [charcoal], [violet], [mint], [beryl], [apricot], [mauve], [blush], [coral], [plum], [marigold] colors added.

Horse Care Improvements:SHOD ALL, HEAL ALL, GROOM ALL now supported!

Auctions Improved:
Big Money buttons for Auctions 100K, 1M, 10M, 100M
Auction time period increased from 5 to 8 minutes.

New Player Economy:
Minigames now pay out 10x cash.
Cash Quest rewards are now all 5x.
Awards now also pay out 5x cash bonuses.
The quests that pay out item benefits now are a little low, but this should help.

Fixes:Wild horses prevented from wandering into ranches, thus being uncapturable.

Extended Lease Options:Unicorn and Pegasus now have a double time period (4hr) lease option for 5M.

Added New Magical Horse Lease:UniPeg! $50M to lease the handy creature which has the abilities of both unicorns and pegasi! 4hr lease period. This creature comes with new pixel horse art, profile art, and a 5x award.

Added New System: Spoiled Horses! $500m per Special Treats.
Anyone may feed any horse a Special Treat to raise a horse's 'spoiled' stat by one. The top 100 spoiled horses on a server will get thirst, hunger, health, mood set to 1000 once every real hour. Top 100 list at City Hall.

Bank Interest Tweak:Bank interest only applies against first 250m in bank accounts. This should be a good compromise to lower inflation at the highest end slightly. New players still get the full interest rate. Economy Note: If this reduces the huge amount of cash flowing around, we can make future tweaks to lower the prices of the magic items and horse spoiling, etc.

Magic Items Resale: Store buyback value reduced a little (90%) for pellets, magic beans, and magic drops.

Setting Tweaks:
Number of Wild Horses out: 30 -> 40 (33% more)
Riddle Reward $1k -> $10k
Water Balloon Reward: $2k -> $20k
Isle Cards Reward: $2.5lk -> $25k
Auction Time 5m -> 8m
Global Chats Gained Per Minute 1 -> 2

Policy Tweak:Player Name changes allowed again after 1 year for subscribed players.

Have fun out there!
