Story snacks, halters, and retrofitting!
Hey, StarFam! Mrs. Holdsworth has a new “story snack” to share with you! Plus a popular halter comes in brand-new colors.
So what is story snack?!
We feel there are so many exciting stories to share with you about life on Jorvik. These stories don’t always have a connection to the main story quest, but still deserve to be heard. Sometimes these stories might even be significant to upcoming quests. There are no limits to the stories of Jorvik! So, while you wait on the continuation of the main story quest, you will receive story snacks from time to time! The very first one was when Mrs. Holdsworth found a book about very special trees. This week she found an old diary belonging to Galloper Thompson! We hope those of you who have been to Fort Maria are ready to pop in for a quick snack with Mrs. H. Her research will help in the next quest!
You must be a Star Rider and up to date on all main story quests to hear the story snacks.
Ms. Holdsworth is waiting in the library at Fort Maria.
We’ve made new variations of our popular nylon halters! It now comes in 6 additional colors so you can match them to your favorite clothing and tack. Find them in Silverglade Vineyard and the Global Store.
This beautiful blue color is now available for purchase!
Appaloosa on the move!
The Appaloosa has made itself a new home at Starshine Ranch next to the American Quarter Horse. We think the Appaloosa deserved to feel at home in this Western-themed haven.
Additionally, only one color variation will be visible! If you wish to see the other other color variations, you can access them in the horse purchasing window by clicking on the horse! We are testing this new feature only with the Generation 3 Appaloosa and American Quarter Horse for now.
The Gen 3 Appaloosa, Paint & Percheron have been retrofitted with new tack. Fit them with the pretty halters from this release or any tack from recent releases!
We’re continuously working on retrofitting tack. However, it takes a lot of time to fit gear to horses we already have in-game and it can often be tricky. We will retrofit tack to a few breeds at a time.
The Percheron can now wear this stunning dressage set!
Our Beta Test is live!
Those selected for the beta test of our updated player characters can start testing today! Testers are welcome to share their experience using the hashtag #NewPlayerNewMe.We can’t wait to see all the new character creations! Follow along so you don’t miss out.
The next horses to leave us for greener pastures are the Generation 1.5 Morab horses. During the Wednesday update on October 12th, they will leave Jorvik and not be available for purchase from then on. Find them at Ferdinand's Horse Market before they receive their well-earned retirement!
While we love each and every one of our old horses, we sometimes need to make changes to ensure the game can run at the best possible performance. One of these changes will be to slowly phase out our very oldest horses.
If you already have purchased any of these horses, no need to worry! The horses will stay unchanged in your safe ownership. Please note that they will not be further supported with bug fixes, updates, or new tack.
Video of the week!
Every week we’re sharing one of our fun videos - sometimes a brand new one, sometimes a nostalgic throwback! Here’s the video of the week:
Coming NEXT WEEK!
7 brand-new coat variations of various breeds will arrive in Jorvik all at once!
Have a great week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
