Hi everyone & welcome to the fourth newsflash

We had several happy events this last month:

> Eternal reached over 3,300 players and Life Cycle reached over 3,400 players!
Keep going smile

> End of the Year Donations – that's the place to say:
Thank you to the admins who started the donations initiative.
Thank you to all of the players who voted in this year's donations
And most importantly, thank you to all those who support Horse Isle, and make the donations possible.

> Happy New Year!

So what we had this week:
1) Your ideas - All of the feasible ideas from the inflation thread were sent to the admins. It's a very long list, and therefore it'll take time to go over it, but I'll update when the admins send their answers.
2) Players' activities – In the recent weeks, several players started making raffles and giving gifts to others. You may want to check out the raffles that are going now, if you hadn't noticed them yet.
3) I opened a new thread for suggesting quests, because the previous one is becoming full. Come and suggest your ideas for quests, books, adventures, etc.

Upcoming:

1) Do you love "find the treasure" games? Your favorite quests are the ones that involve riddles? Then you might enjoy this new activity.
2) Missing the Cloud Isles on Horse Isle 1? Wanted to be a hero in a story? Then you better keep a close eye on the forum.

That's it for now.

Enjoy the game smile

Hi everyone & welcome to the second game (forum) newsflash

I guess you all know about the update we had yesterday. Here are some important things we want you to know about it:

1) Two of the three new quests, which were added to the game, were written by players.
In this case both quests were written by HappyLamb - Way to go!

On this note: Keep Writing Quests. You might find them in the game.

2) We received positive reviews for the first adventure maze, so we added another one. If you like animals and nature they you're really going to enjoy this one.

3) I've already told you we try to add new features to the game. That's why we added the "pet encyclopedias" (and as the update states- there are more to come). We hope you'll find them interesting.

4) Another arena quiz was also added - If you ever had problems with show jumping, then it's recommended for you to do this quiz (and take notes).

5) New tack- You asked for it. You got it. Two new modern-looking saddle blankets were added to the game.

Enjoy the game smile

Summary: Some updates from our HI2 quest writer!

Welcome to the Game Forum Newsflash

One of the issues brought up by players concerned the lack of updates, even updates to notify players that we work on the game. The newsflash is aimed to address this issue.

Why do I write it in the forum and not as a proper "news" ad on the site's main page?
Because it's not really an official update about the game. It's a summary of what we had, are having now and is planned to be in the forum. Since the forum is about to become the main platform for talking about things that were added or might be added to the game, I thought I better find an organized way to sum up everything one in a while. Anyway, I guess it mainly targets those who don't have the time or the will to read long posts and just want a brief summary.

Of course, if there are things you want to share with other players (you reached such and such exp, you finally completed the main quest, you found your dream horse, etc.) you can also do that. smile

I'll try to post a newsflash every week of two weeks, depends on the amount of content.

So, to the newsflash of this week:

1. Improvement of communication
For those who missed, I'm Pathfinder (you can call me Path) and I'm writing quests, books, adventures and challenges for the game. I'll make sure there is always a thread in this forum where you can suggest ideas for new quests (and books and adventures).

2. The food challenge (which will have a better name)
There is a whole thread about this new feature that might be added to the game. In short, players will receive food orders from one of the inns of Horse Isle, and will have 24 hours to deliver it.
Thanks to your positive reviews I've already started to code the whole thing. We'll start with NarrowTon inn (which was favored by most so far) and if it works well I'll add additional inns. I want to remind: If you have any additional suggestions please submit them now. It is very problematic to go back and change a quest (or a challenge, in this case) after it has been fully written, tested and uploaded into the game.

Upcoming (in other words: A few reasons to keep visit the forum):

1) Adventure Mazes: What are they, why have we done them the way they are and why do they still have bugs?
If you've ever wanted to ask something about this new feature added to the game, or wanted to suggest things regarding it- That'll be the place to do so.

2) Some of the most important quests in the game.
It doesn't matter if you like to quest, compete or both- You have to do those quests. Any idea what quests I refer to?

3) Oh, the inflation...
We will talk about it after I finish setting up a few things.

If you have any other topics you want to talk about (or want me to clarify) feel free to post here, open a new thread or in-game mail me.

One last, and important, thing - Because this newsflash is in the forum, and not on the main page, players who don't visit this forum might miss it. So if you have in-game buds please remember to ask them if they had read the latest newsflash. I can't reach all of the players on HI on my own so I gonna need your help with that. You can also talk about the forum using area chat, that's fine. Do *not* use global ads for that, but only area chat. smile

Have a great week,

Path

Summary: Share your quest ideas with our HI2 quest writer!

Hi everyone,
Some of you might already know me. I'm Pathfinder (you can also call me Path) and I've been playing HI2 since its beta version. I'm also a quest writer for this game.

To make a long story short: If you ever wanted to talk to the quest writer, suggest your ideas and get feedback on them, ask for specific quests, etc. - Then now you can do it. Feel free to post your ideas in the forum (I'll open threads for that like this thread) or mail me via in-game mail (in case you don't want everyone to see your idea). If you want to get answer fast then you better post your ideas in the forum though. Please *don't* PM me, as sometimes I log in to play HI and not for reviewing ideas.

I want to stress that I don't promise anything. I don't promise to accept all of the suggestions, nor that all of your ideas will be implemented, but I will try to implement applicable ideas. Please read the feedback I give (to you and to other players) and try to learn what can, and cannot, be submitted. I'll post some examples as a response to this post.

In addition please remember that I responsible only for quests and books, and have nothing to do with art nor new isles and NPC creation. Therefore, every post or mail regarding art-related issues (tack, pets, arenas, etc.) or new isles/NPC-related issues will be politely ignored.

Most important: If you have in-game buds please direct them to this thread. I can't reach all of HI players so I'll need your help with that. smile

That's all of the short story. I'm already waiting for you suggestions!
(Life Cycle will also get this message so you don't have to be on Eternal in order to post your ideas).

Path

And the long story:
The communication issue was raised months ago. During this time we read your concerns and ideas in the forums, and the admins and I worked to add more quest-related content and implement some of the quest-related ideas you had suggested. For example, MrHammerPrice's never ending search for trained horses was created to fulfill the request for more "Artemis-style" quests. Adventure mazes were created to provide more “Hermes-style" games. So we truly considered your ideas and implemented those we could.

Now we're taking it a step further by breaking the silence. From today you'll be able to post ideas in the forum, and/or send me ideas via in-game mail, and get feedback from them. I'll also try to implement the good ideas into the game. However, I don't promise that all of your ideas will be implemented. Currently, this feature only relevant for quests. You can also submit ideas for books but don't submit the book itself (in other words: Don't write it, just give general guidelines for its content). Examples will be uploaded as a response to this post.

In order to prevent the forum form being flooded with ideas I will open threads where you can them.

Please don't PM me ideas, but use only in-game mail and this forum. Also, if you have in-game buds please direct them to this thread. I can't reach all of HI players so I'll need your help with that. smile

Hello HI2!!
Christmas is nearing closer and closer, being less than two months away. You know what it's time for? A giveaway! Vindicta and I have decided to do the Christmas Pony giveaway.
Here's how it Works:
Each person will write a letter to The Christmas Pony asking for an item. On December First, a few of your wishes will be mailed out. But, the Christmas Pony must retire. One of you lucky players will get the Christmas Pony to keep and cherish. There is a new Christmas Pony every year.

Here is the letter to fill out. Please post it here.

Dear Christmas Pony:
I want {Insert Item} for Christmas this year. I agree not to beg The Christmas Pony for items until they are sent out in packages. I cannot wait to get my items!
