Easter Fun and a Springtime Sneak Peek!

2015-04-01 08:00:00
Hey everyone! Welcome to this week's update, packed with Easter fun times plus a special behind-the-scenes glimpse at a whole bunch of awesomeness that we've got in store for you in the coming months!

Easter Comes to Jorvik!
Springtime is here! The days are brighter, the grass is greener, and it's obviously time to load up on treats and celebrate Easter! There are a handful of islanders all over Jorvik who need your help to find their hidden Easter eggs, as well as a secret surprise egg hunt of your very own! To get access to the Easter egg hunt quests, you'll need to have completed the quest where you help retrieve Thomas Moorland's documents from the 'masked rider'.

Time for the Easter fun to begin in Jorvik!

April Fools Surprise!
As in previous years, you'll be able to transform your starter horse into wacky colours by visiting the Easter Bunny on Wednesday only! Fool your friends with this super fun trick, back for one day only!

Jorvik Easter Shops
Easter-themed clothes and goodies are available to help you celebrate from the Easter popup shops all over the island!

Energy Saving Measures
In order to save money and provide a better gaming experience for everyone, Star Stable has decided to implement a handful of new energy-saving measures in the game. When you log into the game today, you'll get much more information about how we plan to save energy, including our plan to reduce the lighting in-game to reduce costs.

Star Stable Easter Gift Shop
All of our incredible deals in the Easter Gift Shop are for a limited time, and will come to an end on April 6. Don't forget to head over and check out our special offers on Star Coins and Star Rider before it's too late!

SPRINGTIME SNEAK PEEK!

Whilst our tech team are working round the clock to stabilise and strengthen the game, our game designers and developers are going crazy with tons of awesome new stuff to be released in the next few months. We figured you guys deserved a heads-up on what we've got in store for you in the coming months...

Brand New Horse, Brand New Animations!
Coming soon is the beautiful new American Quarter Horse! Not just a brand new breed, but also with brand new animations where you're able to see the horse's ears prick up and react to your movements, as well as actually watch as they take a little nibble at the hay or grass whilst at rest. We've already fallen in love with this handsome American classic, and can't wait for you to do the same! Check out the video we've made to show off this handsome new addition to the Star Stable family:



The new animations apply only to the American Quarter Horse at this time.

Appearance Change
We love hearing from you guys about all the things you'd most love to add to the game, and piece by piece, we try to add as many of your ideas and requests as we can. Sometimes it takes a little while to develop your ideas and suggestions into something real that you can see in the game, but we think we've got something for you guys now that you'll be super happy to see!

Coming soon to Star Stable will be the ability to go back to the start and change a whole bunch of aspects of your character's appearance! From hair colour and face shape to eye colour and everything in between, you'll be able to pay some Star Coins and customise your look! Your character, your way!

No More Nail Fails!
A fabulous manicure feature will be coming to Star Stable soon! A brand new way to take care of your nails and manage your style! More information coming soon...

Moorland Makeover!
Scaffolding has surrounded Moorland Stables for what seems to be like forever. The good news is that it will soon be under refurbishment! We decided it was time to freshen up the graphics and add even more beautiful detail to the place where it all begins. Take a look at how it's going to look after all the work is done!

Moorland's getting a facelift!

Some News from the Star Stable Team

2015-03-27 08:00:00
Hey everyone!

Some players have noticed lately that there have been a few issues with Star Stable. In Customer Support messages and on social media, you’ve been telling us about your problems, and we’ve been reading everything and listening carefully.

A big hello from the Star Stable team!
A big hello from the Star Stable team!

Since this time last year, Star Stable has grown at an incredible rate, and as more and more players join the fun, our old systems have been less and less able to cope. Of course the Star Stable team doesn’t want to see existing players and new players having difficulty with the game, and so we’re in the middle of a process to upgrade all our systems. Unfortunately, this can’t happen overnight.

The good news is that all the little wobbles we’re experiencing right now are part of us getting stronger. Since our players and fans are the reason we do what we do, it’s heartbreaking to see you sad and frustrated, and we need you all to know that we’re doing absolutely everything we can.

We have a responsibility to all of our players to deliver value and fun in the game you love, and seeing you all happy is our only aim right now.

We’re at our best and our strongest when we work and fight together. We know waiting is never easy, but if you just hold on and stick with us, we can all be part of the biggest and best horse game in the world together.

As part of making a stronger and more stable game for everyone, we’re introducing an improved Desktop Launcher. One of the reasons we can sometimes experience instability in the game is because of bad connections to the server created by playing through browsers, which is why we plan to get 100% of players using the launcher!

We’ve already started to build a stronger, better launcher so don’t delay! Get your download of the Star Stable Launcher software by carefully following the special YouTube tutorial we’ve made for you below:



Thanks to everyone for their patience and support. We really do have the best player and fan community in the world.

Lots of love from the Star Stable team x

Witches and Pumpkins and Scarecrows, Oh My!

2015-03-25 08:00:00
Hi everyone! Welcome to this week's update!

A New, New Scarecrow
Jasper's scarecrow isn't exactly what it used to be, and he needs a new one for precious pumpkin protection purposes. For one reason and another, you'll need to involve Pi the witch in the creature creation, and she'll need you to collect some very special, very organic, very fair trade goods and ingredients to help her complete her witchcraft. Head over to Old Man Jasper to find out how to get started!

If you were a crow, you'd be scared. Admit it.
If you were a crow, you'd be scared. Admit it.

To get access to this quest, you'll need to have completed the daily where you help Jasper get his scarecrow back, and the quest where you help Pi close the gate to Pandoria.

Fashion Week? Nah, Fashion Fortnight!
All the fabulous fashionable fun is staying at Jorvik City Plaza for another week! Check out the catwalk shows and Raptor's awesome stage performance while you've still got the chance! Since there's a whole extra week of stylish shenanigans, there's of course a whole bunch of new clothes on the shelves at the mall. Take the bus and take a look!

Horse Market
Eddie and Ferdinand are pitched and ready to trade over at Silverglade. Ride over and say hello!

Nail Varnish: a Correction
In last week's news we suggested that after the work on updating our makeup system was finished, nail varnish on fingerless gloves would return and that the fingers themselves would appear grey. This information was unfortunately incorrect, and we apologise. Nail varnish on fingerless gloves will not return once the makeup update is complete, and fingers will in the meantime appear quite normal.

Thanks for reading, now go scare some crows!
Love from the Star Stable team x
