Below is a summary of some of the newest additions to V3. From companions to quality of life features, we’ve been on a roll!
Some furry and wild friends have found their way into Eqcetera! It’s companions! Companions are our first “foreground” item that you can equip to horses. At this point in time, companions give no boost to horses and serve as a customization/decoration item only. We reviewed suggestions pertaining to us adding in decoration items and believe this was the best way to start. We are open to feedback on this and would love to hear what we could do to improve companions in the future!
🐴 Pony Foals
Oh, who is that adorable fuzzy face? It’s the new pony foal art! The last of the foal body types has been completed and all foals in-game now have body-type specific art. We’ll now start on body type specific adult crossbreed images to match over the next couple months. 🙂
🖌️ Updated Care Icons
The care icons have gotten a revamp and have new art. Thanks Elz!
🖌️ Status Icons
Status icons have been added back in with a revamp! Status icons are displayed for numerous reasons which can be read about in this help article.
✨ Friesian Update
Friesians now have new art! Solo knows we love a long mane and some feathering! All Friesians in game have been updated with the new art.
🌄 New Background
With the release of new Friesian art we now have a new background inspired by the Drents-Friese Wold National Park from Friesland. The background includes park wildlife, Highland cattle, and the famous heather.
Our employees in the construction store now have new updated images! Ibbit has done a wonderful job giving them a new style.
💎 Mine Minerals
The mine minerals now have art! Our place holder art is retiring and our new art by Elz is now added. All 7 minerals have their own unique look! Have you found them all yet? What do you think they’ll be used for?
Our art update is dedicated to grey horses. Grey horses now have their grey color linked to genetics. We have updated all breeds with the grey gene, totaling 168 grey layers! Thanks Solo! All breeds that have the grey gene now have new greying layers 1- 4 and two new fleabitten grey layers. More info on the greying process can be found here.
