Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by admin

Hello everyone!

Just letting everyone know that there has been a update to the Terms of Service. Please give it a read to make sure you understand the new changes.

Additionally, I'd like to offically announce that Ceruleans_Blues is now our first offical group moderator! A big thank you to Ceru for agreeing to work with me and help moderate the group. 

Also a reminder that there is still time to place your Sprouting requests if you haven't already! Don't forget you can submit your flowerlings as singles or pair with NPCs if you're struggling to find a partner!

Thank you everyone!

Update 25/2/21

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well! I am just checking in to let everyone know about the recent site updates/errors. Hopefully this will be the last major update for a few months and all existing errors will be fixed soon too.

Patch notes:

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed the submission errors including submission processing, prompt view and form.
  • Fixed 419 login errors temporarily.  This error will still persist during maintenance, it is actively being worked on to find a permanent solution.
  • Character upload error is fixed, regular character and myo creation is working as well as design updates.
Known Issues:
  • While 419 login error is fixed, new users are not able to connect their Deviantart accounts and attempts will result in a 500 error. As a temporary measure, if you are attempting to connect your DA account please reach out to Toffee-tama via discord so she can switch the current server settings to allow you to connect. Upon connection the server will have to be reverted so that other users can login. There is currently no working state in which both options work at the same time. This is actively being worked on and is the main priority.
  • MYO Tokens give a "Failed to use slot." error message when users try to use them. This is an error resulting from the current MYO slot tag code not being coded to include the newly added stats and levels extension. Waiting on word from the creator in order to try fix this issue. This means that MYO tokens temporarily cannot be converted into usable MYO slots.
  • Toggle Spoiler
    Currently unable to create new account due to an error saying that "The g-recaptcha-response field is required". This is by the recently added Captcha V3 feature which is designed to reduce bot accounts, however, it isn't quite working. If it cannot be fixed soon than it will have to be removed. This is actively being worked on.

    This issue is fixed, but if it is affecting you please reach out asap.

New extensions:

Levels and Stats:

  • Added the levels and stats extension which allows users and characters to have levels and for characters to have stats.
  • This feature will be actively usable from April onwards and allows the following:
    • Users can gain EXP from completing prompts and quests. User rewards will include ingame items like beans, equipment and collectables. There is not currently exact reward information or requirement information.
    • Characters can gain EXP from being selected as the focus character in prompt and quest submissions. There will be 20 levels for beanlings and flowerlings. Upon reaching level EXP requirements, beanlings and flowerlings will be able to receive 1 stat point which can be put into either Mind or Body stat. Stat point rewards will be available from level 2 - level 10 allowing a user to level one stat from 1-10 or both stats to 5. Level 11- level 20 will award equipment and potions. Exact details are to be determined.

Recipes:

  • Recipes will be replacing the current crafting prompts. Recipes will be added soon and will allow users to automatically craft their own items. To access recipes once they become available simply click activities -> crafting. Your available recipes can be found here. If you have the required items, you will be able to craft your desired item.

Awards: 

  • Awards feature will potentially be a replacement from achievements, though it is still being decided.

Research Trees:

  • Research trees have been added! However, they are currently unavailable as they are yet to be fully developed in terms of exact content. The current idea for them will be similar to the idea of the job system initially intended for the game (and replaced with guilds). There will be a couple of broadly defined job options, eg. Magic, Martial, which will then branch out into slightly more defined options, which in turn will lead down to specialty trees.
  • Eg. You chose the magic research tree, which then gives you the option to research: Alchemy, Elements, Healing, Combat. You then chose the alchemy tree which will give you options to research potions or items. You chose the potion tree and each level of research will then unlock special recipes with discounts. Or say you research items, which will unlock special item recipes with discounts. Pretty much, the idea will be once you have decided on a specialty you can unlock perks (mainly in the form of recipe discounts).  This idea is still a WIP but will hopefully be rolled out alongside Stats and Levels.
  • Your research trees are account bound and you will be able to specialize in more than one tree. Infact, if you're dedicated you can unlock all research available if so desired.

Event Tools: 

  • Event tools will allow us to run BOSS style events on site and will add a point tracker system. 

Other:

  • Sprouting information will be posted very soon, I hope everyone is excited!
  • I will also be working on adding more group lore pages in the coming months, mainly from April onwards. I plan on fleshing out the world and doing some more promotional artworks.

Thanks once again for your patience. I really appreciate everyone being so calm despite the many issues with the site. I'm trying my best to work through all the issues, however, I am not a developer or coder so it is quite difficult. However, I know we will get there eventually.

Thank you!

Update 5/2/21

Hey everyone!

Just a small update to let you all know what is happening!

At the moment there is a back-end issue with claims/submissions. This means that submissions cannot currently be processed. This issue is being worked on but it seems to be more complex than usual. However, submissions are still open so please do submit if you have finished a prompt, there will just be a delay with receiving your rewards.

The above issue is similarly, but not quite the same in effect on the local test server. The reason for the test server issues relate to the upcoming Levels and Stats extension. However, once that issue is fixed it is hopeful that the live site issue will also be fixed.

There will be an upcoming update in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed there will be no issues. The following features are going to be implemented:

  • Levels and Stats: Adds both player and character levels and stats. Will include a feature to gain experience from prompts and quests. Currently in the middle of playing around with the feature on local, I would like to maybe transition the stats into this feature with the potential ability to increase your characters stats directly through prompt/quest XP. If this is possible, it would be a long term goal feature, meaning that XP rewards will be low and XP required will be high. That way both potions and growths will not become obsolete. However, it will give yet another option for players to progress their characters.
  • Event Tools: Adds another event style to the site, it will run similarly to the BOSS event on discord, except run on site and it will include an event tracker!
  • Sellable Characters: Allows characters to be handed into the adoption centre and adds the ability to exchange your character for currency (in-game only). In turn, I also believe it adds the ability to buy characters from the adoption centre.
  • Awards: Not sure about this feature, could be a possible alternative for achievements?
  • Crafting: A new system for crafting which you complete recipes and receive the item directly rather than using the prompts system. 
  • Hopefully we can also get character drops working properly.

I also want to notify everyone of the adopt schedule for this month and next:

  • There will be 3 public auction adoptables this month (Feb), two on the 14th Feb for Valentines and one on the 20th Feb as late Chinese New year.
  • There will be 1 Patreon exclusive adopt as per usual.
  • Sprouting information will be posted on the first of March. It will be run basically the same as last year except on the site! We will also be having Cerulean-blues as a guest artist! That means at least one additional pairing will be picked per week!

Once again thank you so much everyone for your patience with the site! I hope you all have a lovely day!

Update Issues 16/1/21

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by admin

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to make a quick announcement on site just to clarify a few things in case you're not in the discord/active there.

After the recent update, there were a couple of issues with DA verifications, 419 errors, 404 errors, 419 errors when trying to submit causing login issues, etc. I just want to say that at present, all of these issues have been fixed! You should be free to use the site as normal with hopefully no issues.

I just want to give a big thank you to everyone for all your patience! I understand that the issue can be annoying, however, coding is quite a difficult task, in particular, the issues we face on the live site (here) in regards to DA verification, 419 errors and anything server related cannot be replicated in the local offline site that I run all patches through. While I do try my best to make sure that all updates are able to transition smoothly, most of the time an unforeseen issue will arise once the internet is involved. Also, syntax errors like to come to life every now and again when users try things I don't normally do on the local. 

Anyways, I just want to say sorry for all the buggy issues with the site every update, I really do appreciate all your patience and understanding when it comes to this! I do aim to try my best and get things working asap so that no one missed out on anything. You guys really are the best community <3

Also a shout out to all the new members! Welcome, we hope that you will have a lot of fun here!

PS. just a reminder, if you have any issues, please do reach out to Toffee-tama, especially on the discord where we have a site-errors-and-bugs channel just for site specific issues.

Site Upgrades 11/1/21

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by admin

Hello everyone!

For once the updates did not mess up and everything went smoothly, well, for the most part, there is of course a small error. 

 

PATCH NOTES:

  • Character Transfers:
    • Issue with transfers has been fixed, feel free to initiate transfers once again!

  • Advent Calendar:
    • A fun new activity has been added to the site for future events. This feature allows admin to create an advent calendar that can be accessed by players for a set amount of days. Each day can award a specified prize, meaning that during advent events players will be able to log in daily to receive a free item or currency. It also has and option to allow for a bonus prize for collecting all prizes. I look forward to using this feature in the future!
  • Shops:
    • New shop feature: Coupons! 
    • Coupons can be used in certain shops to give discounts. This features will be set up in the future.
    • Restricted Shop access: Item requirements to enter!
    • This feature allows the creation of a shop that can only be accessed if a user has the required item. I have an idea for a secret Pirate's Bounty shop that can only be accessed if you have a legendary key (will be legendary and super rare) The shop will have special items yet to be determined and beans!
  • Character Drops:
    • NPCs will now be able to potentially drop mystery boxes! This feature will be applied to Flowerling NPCs only. Every day, all flowerling NPCs will have a 10% chance to drop a Myster Wheel Box(Temp) - Has 100% drop rate), the other 90% will drop nothing. Simply clicking on their masterlist entry will automatically award their item, however, you can also check your prize by clicking on the NPC and checking their new tab COLLECT NPC DAILY GIFTS. This will show the prize awarded for the day. The prize also appears next to their species name on their information page like so:
      SPECIES:
      Flowerling (NPC) (NPC Gift: Nothing!)
    • Periodically the prize given will be changed to fit current events.
  • Linages and Links:
    • Characters who have offical lineage (Sprouting beanlings and their parents) Will now have their lineage offically tracked on site (not just in the description box). Due to the number, this process may take some time, however, lineages will be updated soon. This will be used to track parent, children/siblings and grandparents.
    • Characters can now also be linked together. This feature is pretty much the same as the links feature used on Toyhou.se if anyone is familiar.
    • You simply click on the links tab on your characters page and select Request Link. Here you can add characters you wish to link by using their character code (eg: BEAN-00##). Characters you own will auto-link and not require approval, approval will be require if the beanling is owned by another user. Once your link is request and approved, you can set your relationship status and write a quick blurb describing the characters relationship. You may do this for both characters and can even set the relationship to a different status per character  (eg: one thinks of the other as a friend while the other is crushing.)
  • Misc:
    • There is a pets feature that is currently not in use due to a coding error. I am unsure when this feature will be usable, so stay tuned. 
  • Known issues:
    • There is currently a known issue where clicking on notifications (next to the submit button on the right side) gives a 500 error. This is being worked on.

MISC:

Also, just a quick note, if you guys have any questions about the group lore or anything relating to beanlings, please feel free to leave a comment with your question. I am planning to delve deeper into beanling lore and their world and start to flesh out some things this year so it would be nice to know if anyone has anything in particular they would like to know!

That should be most things covered. Thank you everyone!

Happy NY! Future Plans

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by admin

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has/had a wonderful start to the new year. I hope that 2021 will be a great year.

I just want to give everyone a quick heads up on some future plans/timeline for Beanling Patch 2021!

 

Timeline:

January:

  • There will be 3 Auctions for Jan 2021. Just a quiet month.
  • There will also be a free giveaway for all the beanlings that didn't find homes last year <3 Priority will be first-time owners.

February:

  • Valentines themed prompts + adopts.
  • Will include another small gift exchange with sketches. Rewards will be EC and Sweet Chocolate Surprises or Red Envelopes!
  • Chinese New Year Flowerling Auction!
  • Preparations for Sprouting!

March:

  • Sprouting! Sprouting will be the same as last year, $15 per half slot - 1 Beanling (Full slot is $30 - 2 Beanlings). NPCs will be available as well as Single and Ready to Mingle random pairings. Pairs will breed 5 beanlings, the slot owners have first pick, the remaining beanlings will then be sold as a flat sale raffle at the end of the month. 
  • There will not be any traditional adoptables for this month, only the sprouting flaffle at the end of the month.
  • There will be at least 2 pairs per week, potentially more! So a minimum of 8 pairs chosen to sprout.

April:

  • Easter Festival Event will be back, though this time a little more chill than last year.
  • Easter Festival will only be a standard prompt with potentially 2-3 entries.
  • 4 x Easter Egg Scavenger hunt! Thats's one hunt per week! Earn Easter Eggs which can be exchanged for EC or opened for a random surprise!

May:

  • It's Mermay again!
  • Merbeans will be back again in full force, I'm planning to do at least 4 Flowerling Auctions and some OTA/Giveaway beanlings again.

June:

  • TBA

July:

  • TBA

August:

  • TBA

September:

  • Release the Halloween Advent for pre-claims!

October:

  • Halloween Advent reveal.
  • Possible Halloween events.

Novemeber: 

  • Winter Wonderland preparations.

Decemeber:

  • Winter Wonderland again!

 

Those are my plans so far for the start of the year <3 I thought I should share this with you guys, especially my planned time for Sprouting as I know some of you are also planning on entering similiar events around the same time (me too ahaha). I'm planning for the events to be a bit more chill so I can take a little tiny break. I would like to maybe spend some time updating art and information for the site, maybe expand on the lore a bit more, just little things to make the world more emersive. I would also like to work on a lore-based story driven set of monthly prompts - probably something short to start with, but eventually I would love to run a long event where the prompts tell and over-arching story. But we will see how it all goes ahaha.

Thanks everyone for supporting Beanling Patch, I really wouldn't be able to do all this without you guys!

PS. New Prompt is now live! https://beanling-patch.com/prompts/prompts#prompt-16
