Web Client Access Update

Great news everyone! The super awesome Treeki has been hard at work on our web client and we are pleased to announce that test access has now been expanded to all Silver and Gold Sponsors!

The web client runs in all standard web browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc), including those on most tablets and phones! You'll be able to play Furcadia like normal, but now on all these devices, no installation required! If you currently have SS or GS, simply click here and you'll be taken to the login page for the web client.

It's important to note that this is an early access version of the web client. It is a test version, not a finished product! Pounce support, a new user interface, and many other features are still missing, but will progressively be added. The purpose of giving you access to the early access version is so that you can test it on your computer, tablet or smartphone already now and share any issues you find. Please report bugs and problems here. We are updating the early access version frequently, so check back often.

Don't have Silver or Gold Sponsorship? Head over to Digo Market to get set up with one!

And if you see Treeki running around, be sure to give them a high-five!

Lifetag update!

There's a new Second Dreaming update hidden with the server restart! Animals on parade!

Many of you reported that the newer loaded lifetags were glitching, and since we were needing to reload them all as a fix, we finished applying a much needed touch up to the art aspect as well!

(Note: If you know you own a for life avatar and you can't see your own lifetags, type desctags in game to see them!)

For Life desctags are now a lot more compact and suave in design: each has their signature, cute animal icon followed by the infinity sign (a symbol you might remember from the for life wing desctags). These changes significantly declutter descriptions! Rat The Unloved and I went through every tag to make them pretty, too!

Not only have we introduced a bit of color variation, including fuller color and shading for the seasonal lifetags and new crystal tones for Minkins, but also all of the gold coloring across the board now matches in palette! And all of the critters are facing the same way in an adorable parade! Noble desctags are now unique for each species, with a special crown for each! The very classic For Life desctags had more details added, as well.

Although we are feeling a bit nostalgic about the fact that they will no longer have the iconic FOR LIFE words, we are seriously excited about the upgrade both in art and backend!

(Haven't heard of for life desctags before? You can get yourself a FOR LIFE avatar on Digo Market for up to 70% off and then you'll sport a matching one of these cuties in your own description!)

Custom Specitags Are Here!

You heard right folks! The oft requested, super popular Custom Specitag has arrived! Previously only attainable through contribution to The Second Dreaming fundraiser, they were such a popular item we've decided to make them available for all!
