HINTER DEN KULISSEN BLOG POST UND QUEST BELOHNUNGEN BUG BEHOBEN

Blog Post: Wie wir arbeitenEdit

Wolltet ihr immer schon mal wissen, wie das Habitica Team arbeitet, dann schaut euch unseren neuesten Blog-Eintrag an! Wir hoffen, dass euch dieser Blick hinter die Kulissen gefällt.

von redphoenix

Quest Bug behobenEdit

Das Problem mit der exponentiellen Vermehrung von Questrollen Belohnungen wurde beseitigt! Wenn jetzt eine Quest, die zu einer Reihe von mehreren Quests gehört, beendet wird, wird nur der Besitzer der Quest die nächste Questrolle der Reihe erhalten anstatt dass alle Gruppenmitglieder sich exponentiell vermehrende Versionen der nachfolgenden Schriftrollen erhalten. Davon abgesehen dürft ihr alle bisher erhaltenen Schriftrollen als Spaßbonus behalten.

DEZEMBER ABONNENTENGEGENSTÄNDE, AUSRÜSTUNGS-SUCHE, AUFGABEN BEARBEITEN ÄNDERUNGEN UND GRUPPENPLÄNE!

Dezember Abonnenten-Gegenstände enthüllt!Edit

Promo mystery 201612

Die Dezember Abonnentengegenstände wurden enthüllt: das Nussknacker Rüstungs-Set! Ihr habt nur noch 11 Tage Zeit, um das Set beim Abschluss eines Abos zu erhalten.

Abonnenten erweben die Fähigkeit, Edelsteine mit Gold zu kaufen -- je länger euer Abo läuft, umso mehr Edelsteine könnt ihr pro Monat kaufen! Es gibt auch weitere Vorteile wie längeren Zugriff auf unkomprimierte Daten. Und das Beste: Abonnenten helfen uns dabei, Habitica am Laufen zu halten. Vielen Dank für eure Unterstützung -- es bedeutet uns viel.

von Lemoness

Ausrüstungs-SuchleisteEdit

Es gibt jetzt eine neue Möglichkeit, nach Ausrüstungsgegenständen zu suchen: Gebt einfach den Namen des gesuchten Gegenstands in der neuen Ausrüstungs-Suchleiste ein!

Aufgaben Bearbeiten FensterEdit

Bisher war es so, dass beim Bearbeiten einer Aufgabe diese größer wurde und die Liste verlängert hat. Jetzt gibt es ein spezielles Aufgaben Bearbeiten Fenster mit allen Bearbeitungs-Optionen, das über den Aufgaben als Pop-Up erscheint. Dieses zeigt euch mehr Bearbeitungs-Optionen auf einmal an!

von TheHollidayInn

Gruppenpläne BetaEdit

Wir haben die Beta-Version eines sehr spannenden Features ausgebracht: Gruppenpläne!

Gruppenpläne lassen euch eine geteilte Aufgabenliste für eine Gruppe von Leuten erstellen und verwalten. Sie enthalten eine Reihe cooler Features, die für Teams, Familien oder alle mit sich überschneidenden Aufgaben entworfen wurden. Mit Gruppenplänen könnt ihr:

  • Eine geteilte Aufgabenliste für die Gruppe erstellen, die jeder einfach einsehen und bearbeiten kann.
  • Aufgaben an Gruppenmitglieder zuweisen
  • Eine Aufgabe beanspruchen, an der ihr gerade arbeitet
  • Aufgaben markieren, die einer speziellen Prüfung bedürfen, so dass ihr sicher stellen könnt, dass sie wirklich erledigt wurden

Mehr Features in Kürze!

Ihr könnt auf Gruppenpläne zugreifen, indem ihr eine private Gilde aufwertet die ihr bereits besitzt, oder indem ihr eine neue erstellt. Weil diese Features etwas aufwändiger sind, werden Gruppenpläne monatlich bezahlt, zu einem Preis von 9$ pro Monat + 3$ für jedes weitere Gruppenmitglied. Damit können wir die Gruppenpläne um neue Features und gleichzeitig die kostenlose Version von Habitica erweitern.

Gruppenpläne sind immer noch in der Beta-Phase, deswegen freuen wir uns über Feedback von euch, welche Änderungen ihr noch sehen wollt. Schreibt uns eine E-Mail an admin@habitica.com!

While you're at it, be sure to check out all the other items in the Seasonal Shop! There are lots of equipment items from the previous Fall Festivals. The Seasonal Shop will only be open until October 31st, so stock up now.

Changes to Orb of RebirthEdit

Orb of Rebirth The Orb of Rebirth, a special item in the Market, will now cost 6 Gems instead of 8, and will not remove any Equipment items! It will still be available for free to users of Level 100 and above. If you've used the Orb of Rebirth in the past and would like your Equipment restored, let us know in the Report a Bug Guild and we'll fix things up for you!

We've made this change in response to feedback suggesting Rebirth could be improved. Previously, Rebirth made the Rewards list too long and re-earning the gold to recover all the equipment was daunting, particularly when it came to seasonal Grand Gala gear. We hope this modification works to alleviate these concerns and that Rebirth is a feature that continues to motivate everyone.

For those who do want to release and buy back all their Equipment, we are developing a separate feature, tentatively titled "Empty the Armory." Stay tuned!

WELCOME BACK, HABITICA!

Welcome Back, Everyone!Edit

Hurrah! After many hours of toil, our valiant blacksmiths were able to complete our planned maintenance ahead of schedule. The site should be working normally again! If you notice any issues or have any questions, please feel free to email us at admin@habitica.com and we will be happy to help.

Important Mobile App UpdatesEdit

We’ve released an iOS update and an Android update that contain the new code. It’s very important to download these updates immediately, or you may encounter significant bugs!

Veteran PetsEdit

To thank you for your patience during the maintenance, we have awarded everyone a special Veteran Pet! You can see it under Inventory > Pets, at the bottom of the screen. If it hasn’t appeared yet, never fear: because there are so many Habiticans, it can sometimes take an hour or two for everyone to receive their pet. You will have it soon! Thanks again for bearing with us during the downtime.

Veteran-Wolf

Daily Safe ModeEdit

To protect the accounts of Habiticans in different time zones across the world, we enabled Cron Daily Safe Mode during the maintenance, which will prevent you from taking any damage or losing any streaks for the rest of the weekend. Let us know at admin@habitica.com if you have any questions or concerns!

IMPORTANT: UPCOMING MAINTENANCE!

Maintenance to Take Place May 21 Edit

This Saturday, we will be performing important maintenance on Habitica to build out the groundwork for some exciting upcoming features! We'll be doing everything we can to make this as smooth as possible, but unfortunately, there will be significant downtime for much of the day.

We expect that on Saturday, May 21st, Habitica will be unavailable between 1 PM and 10 PM Pacific Time (8 pm - 5 am UTC).

  • Don't worry, you will NOT lose any streaks or take any damage during this weekend, not even from Bosses! This maintenance will not harm your accounts.
  • If you will need to see your task list on Saturday, we recommend taking a screenshot of your tasks before the maintenance begins so that you can use them as a reference during downtime.
  • At the end of the maintenance, to thank people for their patience, everyone will receive a rare Veteran pet!
  • This maintenance should not result in any major visible differences to the site; it's all behind-the-scenes work. However, at the end of it, we will release new updates to the mobile apps, which will be required in order for the apps to work properly with the new changes! Be sure to download those updates on Saturday as soon as they are released.
  • For more information, please check out our detailed info page about the maintenance! And if you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to Leslie (leslie@habitica.com), and she will be happy to help you.

We understand that it's very frustrating to have Habitica unavailable for such a long part of the day. Rest assured that we'll be doing everything we can to make the maintenance go as quickly as possible, but with over a million Habitican accounts to migrate, this is a hefty task! During the maintenance on Saturday we will be posting regular status reports on our Twitter account, so you can follow us for the most accurate updates.

Thank you for your patience, and for using Habitica!

The Be-Wilder World Boss is Defeated!Edit

We've done it! The Be-Wilder lets out a ululating cry as it twists in the air, shedding feathers like falling rain. Slowly, gradually, it coils into a cloud of sparkling mist. As the newly-revealed sun pierces the fog, it burns away, revealing the coughing, mercifully human forms of Bailey, Matt, Alex.... and the April Fool himself.

Mistiflying is Saved!

The April Fool has enough shame to look a bit sheepish. “Oh, hm,” he says. “Perhaps I got a little…. carried away.”

The crowd mutters. Sodden flowers wash up on sidewalks. Somewhere in the distance, a roof collapses with a spectacular splash.

“Er, yes,” the April Fool says. “That is. What I meant to say was, I’m dreadfully sorry.” He heaves a sigh. “I suppose it can’t all be fun and games, after all. It might not hurt to focus occasionally. Maybe I’ll get a head start on next year’s pranking.”

Redphoenix coughs meaningfully.

“I mean, get a head start on this year’s spring cleaning!” the April Fool says. “Nothing to fear, I’ll have Habit City in spit-shape soon. Luckily nobody is better than I at dual-wielding mops.”

Encouraged, the marching band starts up.

Pet-MagicalBee-Base
It isn’t long before all is back to normal in Habit City. Plus, now that the Be-Wilder has evaporated, the magical bees of Mistiflying bustle back to work, and soon the flowers are blooming and the city is floating once more.

As Habiticans cuddle the magical fuzzy bees, the April Fool’s eyes light up. “Oho, I’ve had a thought! Why don’t you all keep some of these Magical Bee Pets and Mounts? It’s a gift that perfectly symbolizes the balance between hard work and sweet rewards, if I’m going to get all boring and allegorical on you.” He winks. “Besides, they don’t have stingers! Fool’s honor.”

Oh no! The Be-Wilder has used its Beguilement Strike!

Despite our best efforts, we've gotten distracted by the Be-Wilder’s charming illusions and have forgotten to do some of our Dailies! With a cackling cry, the shining bird beats its wings, raising a swarm of mist around Alex the Merchant. When the fog clears, he has been possessed! “Have some free samples!” he shouts gleefully, and begins to hurl exploding eggs and potions at fleeing Habiticans. Not the most favorable of sales, to be sure.

Hurry! Let's stay focused on our Dailies to defeat this monster before it possesses another someone else.

04/01/2016 - WORLD BOSS REVEALED: THE BE-WILDER!Edit

World Boss: The Be-WilderEdit

Quest bewilder
Complete Dailies and To-Dos to damage the World Boss! Incomplete Dailies fill the Beguilement Strike Bar. When the Beguilement Strike bar is full, the World Boss will attack an NPC. A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied.

~*~

The party begins like any other.

The appetizers are excellent, the music is swinging, and even the dancing elephants have become routine. Habiticans laugh and frolic amid the overflowing floral centerpieces, happy to have a distraction from their least-favorite tasks, and the April Fool whirls among them, eagerly providing an amusing trick here and a witty twist there.

As the Mistiflying clock tower strikes midnight, the April Fool leaps onto the stage to give a speech.

“Friends! Enemies! Tolerant acquaintances! Lend me your ears.” The crowd chuckles as animal ears sprout from their heads, and they pose with their new accessories.

Npc aprilFool
“As you know,” the Fool continues, “my confusing illusions usually only last a single day. But I’m pleased to announce that I’ve discovered a shortcut that will guarantee us non-stop fun, without having to deal with the pesky weight of our responsibilities. Charming Habiticans, meet my magical new friend... the Be-Wilder!”

Lemoness pales suddenly, dropping her hors d'oeuvres. “Wait! Don’t trust--”

But suddenly mists are pouring into the room, glittering and thick, and they swirl around the April Fool, coalescing into cloudy feathers and a stretching neck. The crowd is speechless as an monstrous bird unfolds before them, its wings shimmering with illusions. It lets out a horrible screeching laugh.

“Oh, it has been ages since a Habitican has been foolish enough to summon me! How wonderful it feels, to have a tangible form at last.”

Buzzing in terror, the magic bees of Mistiflying flee the floating city, which sags from the sky. One by one, the brilliant spring flowers wither up and wisp away.

“My dearest friends, why so alarmed?” crows the Be-Wilder, beating its wings. “There’s no need to toil for your rewards any more. I’ll just give you all the things that you desire!”

A rain of coins pours from the sky, hammering into the ground with brutal force, and the crowd screams and flees for cover. “Is this a joke?” Baconsaur shouts, as the gold smashes through windows and shatters roof shingles.

PainterProphet ducks as lightning bolt crackle overhead, and fog blots out the sun. “No! This time, I don’t think it is!”

Quickly, Habiticans, don’t let this World Boss distract us from our goals! Stay focused on the tasks that you need to complete so we can rescue Mistiflying -- and hopefully, ourselves.

Since the April Fool came to town, there have been non-stop parties, pranks, and parades! The only problem is, with the constant celebrations, it’s getting a teensy bit difficult to, well… accomplish any work whatsoever.

Some concerned citizens broach the issue with the April Fool, but he just chortles and raises his voice to be heard over the trombones. “Oho! Nothing to fear. I’ve discovered a trick that will keep us reaping our just rewards, even as we continue to celebrate! Just you wait and see. I’m saving it as my grand finale!”

Well, it probably won’t hurt to keep celebrating until April First. It’s only one day, after all...

Spring Plot Continues: The Floating City of MistiflyingEdit

As the Spring Fling celebrations begin, a sparkling cloud descends from the sky to reveal… the floating city of Mistiflying!

Mistiflying is a flower-filled city that drifts in the clouds above Habitica, manufacturing custom rewards and raining them down on deserving Habiticans. It’s brimming with friendly, magical bees that work hard to keep the blossoms healthy and the city floating, and there’s a festive humming in the air. Looks like we’ll get a chance for plenty of parties this month! We’ve even received a visit from Mistiflying’s somewhat erratic ruler: the April Fool, a masterful rogue with a penchant for fun and an interest in illusions.

Spring Plot-Line Continues: The April FoolEdit

The April Fool swishes his cape over his shoulders, striding through the mists into Habit City. “Lemoness! Redphoenix! SabreCat! My dearest and most delightful friends!” He sweeps out his arms in a striking pose, and several firework displays go off behind him. “Oho, look at your faces! It’s like you aren’t even happy to see me.”

Lemoness does, in fact, seem less than thrilled. “It’s just… the last time you were here, I was kidnapped by a mutant flower uprising."

Npc aprilFool

“Really! Did I cause that?”

Redphoenix smolders. “Two years ago, you turned me into an eggplant.”

“An honest misunderstanding, I am sure. But it did only last a single day!” April Fool links his arm with SabreCat and gives the tracker a winning smile. “Which reminds me – Sabe, I can crash in your guest cottage again this month, right? No hard feelings about the Mammoth Ballet incident?” SabreCat lets out a strangled growl, and Lemoness hastily pulls the April Fool out of claw range.

“You’re here for a whole month?” Redphoenix says. "What, did Lady Glaciate banish you from the Stoïkalm Steppes again?"

The April Fool seems affronted at the suggestion. "Rumors, hearsay, and probably lies! Still, Habit City may temporarily be a more hospitable place to hover over. For entirely unrelated reasons, you understand."

Lemoness rubs her temples.“Even so. It's not that we don’t... appreciate your yearly creativity, but we’re in the middle of the Spring Fling festivities. It’s a very busy time!!”

He taps her affectionately on the nose. “Nothing to fear, my citrusy dear! Believe me, you won’t even notice I’m here.”

Then he claps his hands, and a marching band starts up.

Spring Mystery Plot Continues Edit

A huge, glittering cloud has been slowly drifting towards Habitica, and gossip in the streets is running wild.

“I think I saw an explosion of colored lights, like fireworks!”

“Do you hear that distant humming sound?”

“There’s a sweet scent on the breeze, for sure.”

As you stop in the Tavern on a work break, you overhear Lemoness, Redphoenix, and SabreCat murmuring to each other.

“It’s definitely him,” Lemoness whispers. “I sent my dragon on a stealth flight to check.”

Redphoenix taps a finger against her cup of tea. “Why is he so early? Even for him, this is... unexpected.”

“You don’t think he’s planning to stay in Habit City, do you?” SabreCat asks as his tiger cowers under his chair. “My pets still haven’t recovered.”

Lemoness mournfully flops forward onto the table. “I don’t know... but something tells me that we’re in for an unusual Spring Fling celebration.”

Spring Plot-line BeginsEdit

A large crowd has gathered in Productivity Plaza, just outside of the Tavern. Curious, you press forward and see people peering through a telescope, which is pointed at a strange, sparkling cloud on the horizon.

Unfortunately, it turns out that the line to look through the telescope is about an hour long! Who has that kind of time when there are tasks to conquer? Oh well. Whatever it is, you’ll probably hear all about it soon...

History Compression UpdateEdit

We're working on a big change to the site that will significantly improve performance, making things faster and smoother. However, in order to make these improvements, we need to compress some task and personal history. The following changes will go into effect on Sunday:

  • Non-subscribers will have access to their full, uncompressed history for the last 60 days. After that, their history will be compressed. (For more details, see the wiki).
  • Subscribers will have access to their full, uncompressed history for the last 365 days. After that, their history will be compressed. (For more details, see the wiki). Subscribers will be able to gain their full history by downloading it prior to the change, or by posting in the Newbies Guild for an admin to access it.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email admin@habitica.com. We're looking forward to the performance improvements for the site!
