Sneak Peak: Web Client Interface

Hope your summer is going well! Work on our web/mobile client for Furcadia has continued and we moved it to a new location! If you are a Second Dreaming supporter or have a Silver/Gold Sponsorship, you can access it at https://play.furcadia.com. You may notice that it currently uses the standard interface, but that's just a temporary placeholder. Here's a quick preview of what the finished graphical user interface will look like:

Fun in the Sun Dream Contest

Long sunny days and warm moonlit nights... Summer has arrived! Time for all things outdoorsy and fun!

Working alone or in a team, build a Dream showcasing an awesome, super fun Summer game! Let your imagination run wild -- maybe an inner tube checker board, or ultimate frisbee! Purrhaps bubble soccer? How about lawn darts (just don't throw them straight up!)? No matter how silly or serious, we can't wait to see and play with your creations!

This contest will run all Summer, so you have lots of time to get those creative juices flowing!

Expired and inactive Groups

Since the introduction of Groups, many players have made use of this social feature to promote their Dreams, find like-minded friends, and display their community connections. It's been educating for us to see how players have utilized Groups and what the challenges were.

As a step toward further improving Groups, we have removed all description tags originating from Groups that no longer exist. Free Registered Groups do not prevent a character from expiring due to inactivity, so if the character that is associated with a Group expires, so does the Group. Until now, this didn't delete tags from characters that were previously part of the expired Groups, which wasn't an ideal solution. If you are missing tags from your description after this week's maintenance, it is because the Groups the tags came from are no longer in existence. Desctags from expired Groups will now be removed on a monthly schedule.

A note on inactive Groups: If you own a Group that is set to "inactive", but the uploader/Rah still exists, please reactivate your Group or contact us at https://support.furcadia.com soon. All members of inactive Groups will be removed from these Groups starting on July 15, 2018. In other words, inactive and expired Groups will be treated identically after this deadline.

Confused by all of this and have questions or concerns, please drop us a support ticket and we'll be happy to help. :)

The Husken are Here + Felorin's Birthday!

Furcadia's bounciest fluffers (or fluffiest bouncers?) have arrived and are already eagerly licking and frolicking their way into our hearts! Now available for regular purchase, including Dragon Scales, on Digo Market.

Thank you to everyone who joined us Monday night to welcome these brand new Ferian pups in appropriately exuberant fashion. We launched an all new Fetch game in celebration -- now permanent and playable any time! Woo! -- which paired up teams of two for lightning-round competition to throw and fetch as many bouncy balls as possible in 1 minute! Hilarious chaos ensued! :D

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!
