We are so excited to share some fun ideas with you!Banner UpdateAs you all may have noticed, we have released a brand-new beautiful banner for everyone to enjoy! Big thank you to our site artist, Ellastasia, for her wonderful contribution to the site! Abreem Breed BuildOur January gene and wearable spotlight is the Plains World! For those of you who did not see our latest update, we have began improving/building upon our fantastic CE original breeds. This month, The Abreem received a beautiful new horn set, new feathering, new mane/tail, and (2) new white markings. You can create this beautiful breed by navigating to the Horse Creation area from the exploration map and selecting the Plains Origin World!In addition to the Abreem genes, we have also released additional colors to the Magic Shop. These new genes will be available on the Abreem year-round, but the recolors available in the Magic Shop will only stock during the month of January. Stock up while you can!Market ReleasesThe Celestial Market and Armory has also been stocked with brand-new wearables to collect! These wearables include new armor, battle banners featuring the CE logo, and some neat "traveler" style outfits to mix and match. All releases follow our January "Plains" color theme. These new items will be available for the month of January in the market shops!Cash Shop ReleasesLastly, the Cash Shop has been restocked with a fresh set of genes to collect along with a new Cash Shop Breed auction! We have added a handful on new Spotlight Packages for those of you who love to grab complete sets of genes along with individual options to pick and choose from. Check out these releases from the Cash Shop drop down on your navigation bar!Development UpdateOnto Development! We have big plans for January, February, and March. To kick off January with a bang, we are preparing to make a move to a rebuilt server to address speed and resource concerns. This move also includes code upgrades and other quality control measures. We expect to make this move this coming Sunday, which will result in a few hours of downtime. We will give plenty of reminders between now and Sunday, but plan on CE being unavailable for a bit this weekend. In addition to the server move, we have the following planned for Q1- Overlay tutorial for new members + tutorial segments on main feature pages- Elder Quest upgrade (integration of lore and enhanced prizes)- Beauty Contest Top Score Spotlight (on top score page + Beauty Contest page)- Tool Tip hover for Celestial Exploration map- Private breed registry enhancements (breeding limitations set by breed owner)Bug monitoring will continue while we work on these new features + tweaks!Staff OpportunitiesModeratorWe are looking for 1-2 moderators to join the CE staff team!
