Hey there, everypony! The snow is beginning to melt across Equestria... which must mean it's time for Legends of Equestria's spring update! We've been hard at work to bring you a bunch of new content, features, and improvements, so we're very excited to let you know what to expect in v2022.01.01, now available for download!
First things first: with a change of season comes a change of events. The festivities are over, and Check List is once again looking for help to complete Ponydale's Winter Warm-Up! She'll be waiting at the Town Hall as usual for any volunteers who'd like to lend a hoof. You have until April 10th to complete the event!
That's not the only seasonal event happening this year, though; with strong winds on the horizon, nesting birds' eggs are at risk, and one pony needs your help to save them! This new collection event will begin April 11th and runs through until April 24th (which by complete coincidence roughly coincides with a real-world seasonal event, what are the chances?), so you can look forward to earning the new bunny-suit reward in the near future!
A full-scale map has now been added! It can be accessed with the M key (or tapping the minimap on mobile), and shows your character's position within the world of Equestria. It also features an interactive legend for some key locations, like farming and mining spots, or cooking stations!
We've also been working on some improvements to how ponies move and interact with the world. A lot of this has gone into our new headlook system; other players on the server will now be able to see where you're looking much clearer, and you can manually control the head position with a keybind (the R key by default). You'll never miss something out of the corner of your eye again!
I swear the bit where she looks at the camera was not intended as a jumpscare.
A bunch of new loading screen art is also included for lots of our in-game locations that were previously stuck sharing! You'll also see a loading percentage, to give you a better idea of how long it'll take before you can get to exploring again.
One final highlight of the update: everypony's favorite cousins, the donkeys, have finally rolled into town! Donkey NPCs are being added to the game, with more to come in the near future!
There's plenty more included in this update - like a raft of new quests and NPCs, a bunch of bug fixes, some terrain loading improvements, a hoodie cosmetic item, and much more! You can check out everything in our changelog post, as usual. If you're playing using our Windows launcher, your files should update automatically; other platforms may need to visit our downloads page to get hold of the latest game files. If you're playing on mobile, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update.
That's everything for now; we hope you enjoy this newest update, and we look forward to seeing you in Equestria soon!
