Hey again, everypony! It's been a little while, hasn't it? You might think that we're running a little late with our seasonal update, but what if I told you that it's thematic, eh? Would you believe that?
Ah, well. It was worth a try!
We've been working super hard over the last few months to bring you something extra special, and it's finally here for everypony to enjoy: the Legends of Equestria Winter Warm-Up event
Yes, that's the name we're going with.
For the next few weeks, Ponydale needs your help! As per usual, it's struggling to get winter all cleared up in time for spring to begin, and expert organizer Check List has been brought in to try and get the event back on track - but she needs more volunteers to manage it! You can find her barking out orders from Ponydale's Town Hall! You can't miss her - she's the one in the snazzy vest! Everypony who helps to warm up winter for Ponydale chooses one of three teams, and if they're successful not only will they get to see Ponydale restored to its usual lush green, but they'll get a team vest to match!
Which team will you choose? Don't forget, this is a seasonal event, so it won't be around forever; you'll also need to be an adult pony who has Graduated in order to participate!
That's not the only new addition to the game, though; Cantermore is now home to the First National Bank of Equestria! If you've been having trouble cramming all those color-customised pairs of tartan socks into your saddlebags - and trust me, we've all been there - then this update is for you! Visit the bank in Cantermore, located conveniently in the middle of the city near the fountain, to store costumes, armor, and any other stuff that you don't want to get rid of, but don't want to carry around everywhere you go!
Please note that the Cantermore bank is the only one currently operational, and it's not able to store bits just yet, but more is always coming! In the meantime, you can speak to the Bank Guard to learn more about it, as well as how to expand your bank storage!
There's plenty more that's new to Equestria; A big redesign of the trading system, bit trading, a revamping of the friend system, Ensemble has a new seasonal dress for sale - and, of course, a plethora of new socks. If you're using our Windows launcher, the game should update automatically the next time you launch it; for everypony else, the updated files are available from our downloads page (https://www.legendsofequestria.com/downloads)
! As usual, we have a full changelog that details every change, improvement, and addition that we've made; you can find that over here (https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=17737.0)
We really hope you enjoy the Winter Warm-Up event, as well as everything else we've brought you so far! Remember, if you run into any bugs, issues, or just a suggestion or two, you should submit them to us using the system explained here (https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=16754.0)
There's a lot more to come, so stay tuned, and we'll see you in Equestria!Head over to our downloads page to grab the update! (https://www.legendsofequestria.com/downloads)
Socks will fit foals! I will be able to make room in my saddlebags (for more socks) by storing extra stuff at the Cantermore bank!
How will that ZIP file work? Is there an installer or will the files have to be updated manually? (I didn't use the installer to install the game the first time).
Edit: I downloaded it. Now what? I want to make sure I install the new files correctly and not delete all of my progress.
Chrome Thunder: right-click on the zipped folder you downloaded. In Windows, this should give you a menu, select unzip folder, you will be prompted with a destination for the result, the destination should be in the same folder containing the zipped folder. Press OK. Unzipping will take a few minutes, after which you will have an unzipped update 11 folder in which you will find the launcher -- it's a feather icon. Double click the feather.
Seems that foals can't clean up winter? I can see ponies flocking to the City Hall, but I don't see the sky blue pony. But I did buy a lovely spring dress from Ensemble in the Crystal Kingdom and my socks now fit! I look smashing in my polka-dot socks and spring dress.
Thanks Mysteli! I've been pressed for time so I didn't read the announcement as attentively as I should have. 8^)
It should be! Talk with Check List in Cantermore. She's east of the fountain at a lemonade stand!
