Thank you for the kind words. I am keeping the community informed via the Forum and Discord, both spots. Unfortunately, if you are not currently playing the game, you obviously won't see the Forum post so I am being proactive in posting on Discord as well, so you can stay informed while waiting. Unfortunately, there is no set in stone date for a reset. The code was the biggest issue and that should all be fixed now, for the most part. We are still finding small bugs here and there (Forum Topics, new accounts signing up for the game, etc.)
The code was a nightmare, it was essentially copy and pasted and there was still a bunch of code that didn't work on FS in this game. We are moving forward, I pay for this game to stay running so the few people who are still active can continue to enjoy the game while waiting for the new version. We do appreciate the support you all have shown and continue to show and we will reciprocate that support by bringing you all a finished, day one product.
Last I heard, sometime in first to middle of March, they were aiming for middle of April but had no definite time frame due to code being so fubar.
I know it takes time and effort to recode a game.
I am patiently waiting for the next version.
I know it's not easy doing things and getti!ng levels, knowing they all will be gone, but it's also a chance to try things and prepare for the new start.
Those who don't like it, I don't know, maybe they should go somewhere else to have fun.
Thanks to all that are still here, and for all the hard work that is done behind the scene.
Most of us don't know what is in need to be done, and it's easy to grunt when it doesn't go like you would like.
Ignore everything Grunts says, Staff. He is only a troll and tries his hardest to beat people down for no reason. It's extremely sad to see someone like this. He doesn't understand what has to happen behind the scenes to overhaul this game, and he obviously missed the recent news post. Things will happen in the right time, and we know you're putting a ton of work into this crappy code. Thanks for all you do!
When is the game reset?
Seeing as staff would rather sit on discord to talk about this game, i figured it would be smart at some point to start the topic here on the actual game itself.. Sabs, i will say this right now, Vexx at least kept us informed HERE and didnt force people to go to other sites to talk to people that would rather make idiot jokes then answer simple questions. If this is how this game is going to start, say something. Your staff are lazy shits already, there is Zero faith in this game going forward seeing as all that talk you made was just that...talk. Be present or turn it off until its ready, otherwise, keeping friends informed over the people sitting here waiting for you, makes you look far worse then previous owners. Man up already ffs.
Thank you for this update! Looking forward to the game! you are doing an amazing job :)

Downtime is complete!
Hey all, just wanted to give you all a heads up. Tomorrow around 7:30 PM EST, the game will be down for a little bit as we are switching servers. I cannot give you a timeframe of how long the game will be offline, it just depends on how long it takes to propagate.
Thank you all for your patience,
Please add any leftover Snow you may have to the Workshop by January 10th. After that we will give out global perks according to how much was added. We may also be giving out a minor reward that can be used at reset, a reward of your choice, however, I am not going to spoil that here.
Thanks for that Sabaktes. I am cool here...I just worry about the people that just didn't have time to play. I want to see everyone have something to show for being here and supporting you and the game.
I think this offer is fabulous
Haven't really decided yet, but more than likely you'll be given a tool to at least start you off on Tutorial Island (or you can just skip on through) or there might be a different way I set it up with quests, haven't fully decided yet.
For anyone who didn't feel they got fairly compensated in regards to Snowballs to get items from the exchange, or for anyone who felt the 200 Snowballs in exchange for an item was too much, please send a message and I will make sure I give a make right reward with Snowballs as compensation. I am not here to "screw" anybody over, I don't want anyone to feel left out. This was designed to give you all (the loyal people who are still here) some items to carry over after reset and I want to make sure you all have that.
On the reset what items will we be given at the start? That would help me decide what I need to buy
Thank you for your feedback Pixel. In the future I'd like to make sure every skill has a fair shake at events, even if they don't make sense, for instance, chopping snow. Honestly, doing the exchange was the hardest part and that is what got the most backlash, I was trying to be fair to everyone and based the exchange off of how many Snow Globes were floating about.
I did this event purely on showing my appreciation for the people who have stuck around and continue to stick around. I promise things will get better. Thank you all for at least giving us a chance to show you all we want what is best for the game and the community.
I think that considering the event was done on the fly..
And that you didn't have to do anything at all...
It was grand. Good fun, nice distraction. If you plan to use it in the future it could use some polishing, more skills involved but over all I thought it was just fine.
I don' feel the shop purchases from the event should of been based on how many snowballs a few people had. I personally put in a lot of hours and did fairy well. Not grandiose but not shabby either. That tells me that there are lots of people with lives that are below me in quantity of snowballs that will not be able to get many of the event items...
To me this event was based on loyalty...both past and future....You know, a bonus for sticking it out and hanging around to see what this game can evolve into. And past that? No other issue should be looked at. I could care less how loaded down the big dogs are...I do care that the everyone gets a fair shake at some mementos of their time here to boast about a year from now....
"Oh yeah, this Ugly sweater is from 2020's event. I can't believe how much this game has changes since then."
Just my thoughts on the whole matter. :)
Other than that, carry on, don't get stressed, have a great day and be fabulous :)
I know I will

The Christmas Event has officially come to a close. Make sure that you all are opening your Snow Globes, I will only leave the Christmas Exchange up for a limited time, since there was a huge discrepancy in Snow Globes from one person to another. These items that you will receive, will be the items carried over after reset.
Make sure you clear cookies and refresh before going into the Christmas Exchange or you will probably think that it doesn't work.
What did you all think of the event? Give me feedback as obviously this was my first time putting one on.
Snow Globes - Unlock them in Wellbridge
Snowballs - Currency you will turn in to get your items to carry over at reset
Snow - No use except to add to the building of the Workshop
Snowballs will drop from any action, not just holiday actions
Christmas Event is now live! It will go from now through December 31st (twelve days of Christmas) Sail from Winterport to Holly Jolly Port where you'll find lots of creatures who inhabit the island, however, you'll also find some quiet spots to hone your gathering skills! Hopefully you all have fun with this event and this is just the tip of the iceberg as I love bringing you all content.
Fish Elfish in Holly Jolly Port (Level 1)
Fish Elfish + in Holly Jolly Port (Level 85)

As far as the event goes, be brutally honest. Obviously it was my first time putting an event on so I'm not sure if it's good or bad. I'm a big boy, I can take it :P
