Archive Changelog
5.26.27 September 20th, 2019
upcoming This is an unreleased version. Navigate to https://amar.bornofsnails.net/next to try it out today before it is officially released!
change Quests that no longer have a valid date (e.g. Homey's Revenge) will show that the quest is only available on a certain date / date range.
5.26.26 September 18th, 2019
change Changed the behavior slightly of modals so that they aren't as likely to close when you do not intend them to. The only caveat with this update is that on linux, on rare occasions, you may need to click twice to close a modal (mouse down on the modal, but mouse up outside of the modal).
change Adjusted the login behavior that should do two things. 1) on mobile devices, you may stay logged in longer without having to re-log back in. 2) Refreshing the game will extend your current session by an additional 30 days, which should also help you stay logged in longer.

5.26.25 September 7th, 2019
new Added the Show Category Weight setting. This will allow you to see the total weight of a given category in your inventory, houses and storages, instead of the count of unique items.
bug fix Fixed a bug that prevented players from being able to automatically start using their extensions from journal entries.
bug fix Fixed a minor bug that gave an unhelpful error when sometimes adding / removing copper to / from your shop.
change The forum topic length has been increased to 64 characters, and the forum will prevent you from typing too many characters.
change Removed the year from the date in the top right. If you need Amar to remind you what year it is, I recommend that you invest in a calendar.
5.26.24 August 20th, 2019
new There have been some requests for a separate dedicated whisper channel so that whispers do not consume every other channel. There is now a setting called 'Dedicated Whisper Channel' that will do just that.
new I will be removing the special offer from the Snail Buck shop in the next day or two, so be sure to pick some up before it ends!
bug fix The Snail Rattle now shows two rows for its mana regeneration in the Effects Panel. One row shows +2 and the other row shows +2 Magic.
change The spell-casting menu is now a little bit more click-friendly on mobile devices with more padding around each spell.
change The travel menu is also a little bit more click-friendly on mobile devices.
content Bones are now listed under the Carpentry header in the inventory.
content Normalized all of the various spell base timers.

Timer spells start at 30 seconds
Random Drop spells start at 40 seconds
Double Drop spells start at 50 seconds
Success spells start at 50 seconds

This is not a substantial change except for Fleet Foot and Everlasting Feast since they did not have a timer defined. Some other spells are slightly higher and some are slightly lower (+/- 5 seconds).
5.26.23 August 3rd, 2019
new A new event has started! Check out the Snail Hatchery in town to learn more! (Should the shop not show up, just do a hard refresh.) To help celebrate the event, a special offer is going on in the Snail Buck shop.
