Reminder that the Birthday event is going on. See the previous changelog on January 12th for more information!
Reminder that when this version is released, some functionality in version 5.28.21 and earlier will be turned off, and some parts of the UI will stop working.
Fixed a bug that prevented item types (Forest Logs, Water, etc.) from showing up in the todo list if they are in your selected house.
Fixed a minor bug that would occasionally show the incorrect name in the minimized house display on mobile devices.
Fixed a bug that resulted in effects not getting loaded correctly when other players cast on you.
The combat display has been improved to be more efficient.
There have been backend-only changes to combat should be completely invisible to you. With that said, it is possible that I have missed edge cases, so please report any odd behavior while doing combat.
The break rate for Monster's Boots has been increased from 0.0005% to 0.0015% to match the break rate of other event drops.

Amar's 14th Birthday event starts on January 16th! You can start the quest early right from town so that you automatically start collecting actions as soon as the clock strikes midnight! Your actions will stop counting after January 23rd at 23:59:59. In addition, as per tradition, there is a special offer in the Snail Buck shop, ending when the event ends.
Note that I am still working on the year three reward, but that will be an option in the Birthday Shop soon.

Like mentioned in 5.28.21, this is a fairly substantial release in terms of backend functionality changes. When 5.29.1 is released, some features in 5.28.* will stop working.
Fixed a minor issue that showed non-skill outfits as an option in the outfit modal while not doing any actions.
Similar to the inventory and marketplace fixes, the paperdoll should no longer unequip your items on some devices if your finger just so happens to be over the unequip button.
December 18th, 2022
Jolly Coins will start dropping on December 21st and continue through the end of the year, ending at 23:59:59 on January 1st, 2023.
The last Snail Buck special offer of the year is here! Be sure to check it out in the Snail Buck shop.
Fixed a bug that prevented the marketplace from working properly on mobile devices.
The last couple of weeks have been mostly dedicated to backend changes. These changes should be invisible to you, but worth calling out nonetheless. In addition, the next release will be a minor version bump, bringing us up to 5.29.0. Some functionality will stop working in 5.28.* and earlier after the 5.29.0 release goes out.
The platinum nugget drop rate has been increased.
December 4th, 2022
The Winter Garden event has begun! See 5.28.19 for more information.
The Todo List now supports child todos from effects. An example of this would be making Maple Smoked Cuttlefish. You can now click on Sip of Lavender Liqueur to create a child todo to produce the liqueur. As an added bonus, you can now click on the effects from the manual too.
The bugfix that was applied to clicking on inventory items on mobile devices was also applied to personal shops too. This should prevent the issue where clicking on an item will sometimes be interpreted as clicking on buttons from within the item detail modal.
The 'Scroll to Bottom' button that everybody loves has changed slightly to better accommodate small screen resolutions.
Increased the drop rate and drop quantity of Naga Scales.
November 27th, 2022
For the month of December, you can now craft Figgy Pudding! Build a Winter Garden in most towns (Abandoned Villege and Arctic Expanse excluded) and grow winter crops. The event starts on December 1st and will run through the end of the year.
While planting the winter crops will only be available during December, the winter garden's processing actions will remain open after December. The exact time when the extension will no longer appear is TBD, but will likely be accessible through the end of January.
The Books will now display how many of the item is in stock. In the case of actions where there are multiple primary drops, it will not display a stock count.
There is now a button that shows up in chat when you are not scrolled all the way to the bottom. In addition, it should fix a long standing issue where you will occasionally get booted back to the bottom if you scroll up too slowly.
Cleaned up the UI when creating new gardens and workshops.
The original Figgy Pudding has been renamed to Stale Figgy Pudding.
Gingerbread Seeds have been deleted.
Bottles of Peach Brandy now have 3 uses when used in recipes.
Just a reminder that qiviut will be getting a level restriction of character level 30 and sea silk will be getting a level restriction of character level 60 on or after January 1st, 2023.
November 19th, 2022
The Thanksgiving Event has returned! You can find Turkey Coins throughout the world starting November 20th, and they will continue to drop through November 27th, 23:59:59. You can find them by doing any action or combat in the game. Remember to max out your Random Drops. If doing combat, also remember to max out your Double Drops. You can learn more about these effects by reading about them in Manual > Game Mechanics.
In addition, be sure to check out the new special offer in the Snail Buck shop!
Fixed a bug that could result in chat notifications not appearing when using tabbed chat.
Cleaned up some of the link generation logic for internal links.
Cleaned up the guild storage logs.
November 13th, 2022
Similar to the new buttons that auto-consume the correct amount of items, some duration-stacking effects are now clickable too. For this iteration, it ignores existing effects, and gives you a one-click option for consuming the right amount for the length of your botcheck. This may change based on feedback.
Fixed a minor styling issue with the effect panel. In addition, condensed the effect sources so that they take up less vertical space since you cannot interact with them.
The chat channel selectors and inputs have been changed.
For the tabbed chat, the channel name to the left of the input has been removed. When rewhispering others, it automatically changes into a regular whisper.
The chat size input button has been moved into Settings > Chat.
Note - on some mobile devices, when not using the tabbed chat, selecting a new channel may be challenging. This has been fixed in 5.28.18, but you can also temporarily enable tabbed chat from Settings > Chat if you do encounter this problem.
November 6th, 2022
Now that nearly all components have been cleaned up, I am giving themes a whirl. For now there is just a single new theme that you can try out, but if people like the ability to use new themes, I can build a section that allows you to select one of several themes. For now, you can access the new theme from Settings > General > Cosmetic Settings > Custom Theme.
Note that some parts of the theme may be incomplete. The only known thing within the game itself that does not conform to the theme's palette is the botcheck and likely parts of the manual. If you spot anything else, please let me know!
Fixed a bug that sometimes resulted in accidentally consuming an item while on mobile devices. This also prevents accidentally focusing on an input field in the item details panel too.
Fixed a minor issue that sometimes resulted in the paperdoll where items with longer names had a weird display.
Furnace slot expansion has been increased slightly. Depending on the level of your furnace, you should expect to see an increase in slots, which will decrease the time it takes for your furnace to level.
October 30th, 2022
When casting spells, you can now click on the "Cast x spells" message to automatically start casting that amount of spells, instead of having to type in the count of spells.
Similar to casting spells, you can now click on the count of items you need to get to the maximum effect value, instead of having to enter the value in the input field.
The ordering of effects has been adjusted to make room for new effects that will be coming in the future.
Cleaned up the holiday shop UI.
