Server downtime!

The Furcadia server is moving on Sunday, February 26th! The move starts at around 6:00 AM FST/CST. The approximate downtime is 6 hours during which you cannot log into Furcadia. Please make sure to download the client update that is currently available. Players logging into the game with a Furcadia account can download the 5 MB update from the launcher where you select your character. Players who are still using INI files can find the download link in the chat box after logging in. If you are using INI files, you must download the update before the server move. If you don't, the old client will not connect to the game anymore and you will need to download the full installer from the download page.

If you pump into any problems, please contact us through the Support Center. For possible status updates during the server move (if it's up sooner or the downtime is extended), please keep an eye on our Twitter or Facebook page.

Help Furcadia Move!

Server FoxFurcadia is moving to bigger and better servers! It's been many years since we upgraded, and after outages that caused downtimes and technical problems, it's become more pressing to replace both our servers and our hosting service. We've started moving everything over to its new home on spacious and powerful machines. For a smooth transition, we are paying twice for hosting this month, plus a hefty set-up fee, increasing our expenses substantially.

We need your help to cover these extra costs!

To help off-set the additional costs we have created the cutest Server Fox desctag (FOR LIFE)! Exclusively for players who help us move the server, there's also a Pounce Package FOR LIFE (includes Server Fox desctag)! This type of group package FOR LIFE has not been offered before, and is available only for the server move sale! The proceeds from these special offers are only used for covering the server moving expenses. It's a win-win: a great way to help Furcadia (and make it faster and more stable!) and get something very nice for yourself that lasts forever! Extra revenue will be used for wages.

Thank you for helping us!

For the hardware geeks, here are the specs:

  • Web server: Xeon E3-1270V5 (Quad Core), 32GB DDR3 SDRAM, 250GB SSD RAID, 2TB SATA drive, Linux (Ubuntu)
  • Database server: Xeon E5-1650V4 (Hexa Core), 32GB DDR3 SDRAM, 250GB SSD RAID, 2TB SATA drive, Linux (Ubuntu)
  • Game server: Xeon E5-2620v4 (Octo Core), 32GB DDR3 SDRAM, 250GB SSD RAID, 2TB SATA drive, Linux (Ubuntu)

Help the Giraffe! fundraiser news!

Thank you, ALL OF YOU!, who helped our fundraiser for giraffes this past month! Together we raised $630 and today we donated all proceeds to the African Wildlife Foundation!

Why the giraffe? While working on the new Raffen avatar, the Giraffe was added to the list of endangered species! So we offered a beautiful African Wildlife Foundation Charity Desctag FOR LIFE. 100% of the funds raised by the sale of this desctag were donated to the African Wildlife Foundation.

This limited edition Desctag FOR LIFE was not available to be purchased with Golden DragonScales. No copies of this desctag were or are given away as prizes or for promotional purposes. Everyone you see with the African Wildlife Foundation Charity Desctag FOR LIFE has helped the Real Life Raffens.

We were excited to have provided an opportunity to reward Furcadians with an in game item and at the same time do something to help a species that relies on our support for long-term survival! Each of you who contributed to this cause may hold your head high - like a Raffen! - knowing you've made a difference for these amazing animals.
