Welcome to Hallowtide: Legends of Equestria's 2019 Fall Update is Here!

Oct 30


Greetings once again, everypony! It hasn't been that long since we last brought you an update, but 'tis the season for surprises, so we've got another one for you! Our 2019 fall update (V2019.02.02) is now available to download!

It hasn't been that long since we brought out our (slightly belated) summer update, so it might not be much of a surprise to learn that this is a smaller one than that was! If you want the full details, you can always check out our changelog, but here's a few key notes!

First, and perhaps most notably, the spooky season has rolled around once more - and that means that costumes are the order of the day! Our batpony costume is once again available to everypony celebrating this holiday, known in Equestria as Hallowtide. What are the origins of this festivity, you might ask? Well, a bit of investigation might lead you to the story the event is based on... maybe somewhere spooky would be a good place to start?



We've also made some more minor improvements to things that might be less notable, but no less important. Collision issues with some places in Applewood, new music for the White Tail Park (as well as some funky musical pads!), and some fixes to particle effects, to name a few!



That's everything for now! We hope you enjoy everything we've added to our little horse world so far, but there's always plenty more to look forward to in the future! We'll see you in Equestria!

The Frontier awaits: Legends of Equestria's Summer Update is Live!

Sep 22
Hey again, everypony! It's been a little while since we last spoke, huh? Well, at least I'm bringing some big news to you: our long-awaited summer update (version 2019.02.01) is now available from our downloads page!

For the first time ever, the Equestrian railroads now reach all the way to the distant outposts of Applewood and Dodge Junction, deep in the Equestrian Frontier. This brings whole new areas to explore, and so much additional content that you can barely swing a rattler without hitting something new! Not that I'd recommend swinging any kind of snake, obviously.



The Frontier is a large, barren landscape, but that doesn't mean that there isn't plenty to explore in this new environment. Be careful! Getting lost is easy, and you never know where you might find cliffs, caverns, or dangerous creatures. The west is still very wild!



We've also had our landscaping team hard at work, and they've brought you a new park on the outskirts of Ponydale; reports are also coming in of hidden caverns deep beneath the Crystal Kingdom.

On top of new locations, we've also added and updated a bunch of items, such as the new textures on Harmonious and Elementium armor! Astound your friends and foes alike with your sparkling new gear.



Climbing and jumping boots are now available as a reward for ponies who can brave the intimidating critters of the Bramble Woods. As the fashionable footwear's names suggest, they'll help enhance your abilities to jump higher, or climb the steepest of hills.



Let's also not forget that this seasonal update brings with it our yearly event, the Festival of Lights! Now's your chance to celebrate the glow of friendship that brings all the creatures of Equestria together, and help to craft the unique lantern or torch for the event. To help commemorate the occasion, the finest alchemists of the Crystal Kingdom have worked diligently to create exciting new fireworks for everypony to enjoy!

On top of all that, we've reached our second year of being fully accessible 24/7 (barring the occasional server oopsie, of course)! So in celebration of our anniversary, you can expect a scrumptious new hat celebrating two years of pastel ponies!

As always, this isn't everything we've added or changed over the past few months; if you want to check out the numerous quest and bug fixes, you can find all the details in the changelog.

We've still got plenty more wonderful things planned ahead, and we're already working on the next batch of additions to the world this team loves so much. In the meantime, have fun exploring the new reaches of Equestria!

The 2019 Spring Update Is Finally Here!

May 09
Hey again, everypony! You might've noticed that spring is pretty late in coming to Equestria, as tends to be tradition around these parts; well, it's finally time to do something about! Our spring update, Version 2019.01.01, is now available from our downloads page.

This update brings the Winter Warm-Up event back to Ponydale! The town needs your help to clear up the snow and prepare the area for the new season ahead. If you want to help - and earn a nifty team vest for doing so - speak to Check List at the Town Hall! An important thing to note here is that, even if you have already completed this event last year, you can still participate again this year - it's all hooves on deck to get this snowfall shifted! Why not try to earn a different team jersey this year?


We've also added a new location, in the form of the Cloudopolis Academy interior! This means that each pony race now has a classroom implemented into the game, so you can expect more foal content to come down the pipeline in the future that utilizes this!



Of course, this update comes with a host of smaller fixes and improvements - new quests, audio issue fixes, quest inventory fixes, and more quest marker problems than you can shake a stick at! If you want to see the full list of additions, check out our changelog here!

There's still plenty more to come, with some big things in the works that we can't wait to show off to everypony! Until then, we hope you enjoy this update, and we'll see you in Equestria!

Legends of Equestria in 2018: A Recap!

Dec 31
Hey there, everypony!

First of all, from the entire LoE Team, A happy New Year to everypony!

To mark the end of 2018, we thought we'd have a little throwback to what has happened in-game and behind the scenes over the last 12 months, so here we go!

To start off our list we go to everypony's favourite season - winter - which has once again returned in-game, meaning you can see perhaps the biggest change in 2018's first update; a Ponydale covered in snow, and with even more flakes falling from the sky in some places!



Second on our list is something you all seem to enjoy a lot, seasonal costumes. Dressing up as a scary ghost, bat, mummy, and more; everyone had their joy with these spooky outfits. In our April Fools update, we also saw for the first time long requested All-icorn Upgrade! And lastly, we added another long-requested cosmetic item (and my personal favourite), scarves.

We also added more protective items over the year; not one, not two, but twelve new armor sets, all with special stats to make your pony powerful. And that doesn't even include the all-important wearable pots and pans.


 
To make it extra special, the latest armor to be added can even be colorized.

Next up, places to visit. As the world of Equestria grows, there will always be new locations to discover and explore! This year saw the addition and revamps of some maps; to start off we begin with the biggest addition, the Athamanes digsite.



Giving access to this long-forgotten dungeon, Athamanes is an ancient city recently uncovered, but for now the secrets below the city have yet to be uncovered. Watch this space!

While exploring long-forgotten ruins is a lot of fun, we can't forget the fact that ponies need to study; one of our updates also added the Ponydale schoolhouse.



And to round things out, we've got the classy Cantermore Gala Hall, for all your fancy functions. The perfect place for a ballroom blitz!

For our last recap element, we come to the backbone of the entire project: game mechanics. There have been a lot of changes and improvements in this area; the entire combat system has been revamped, and experience gain altered, to accommodate our original intentions, as well as new elements like the crafting system.



We also worked to make it easier for you to interact with players and items. Banks were added all around to give you extra storage, And the trading system that made it easy for you to conduct trades and gifts.



And of course, who could forget our decision to allow for the enabling of player collision? I think we can all agree that that was an unmitigated mistake.



It wasn't just the LoE team hard at work over 2018, though; this year saw a whole heap of exciting player-led events spread out all across the calendar! from birthday parties and weddings to seasonal contests like the Equestria Games, and everything in between (Summerween, Hearthswarming Helper, Nightmare Night, our Anniversary, and more roleplay events than I even have space to list), the LoE playerbase always has something exciting and surprising planned!









The 2019 Equestria Winter Games are apparently already in the planning stages, and we can't wait to see what else you guys come up with in the coming year!



This is by no means everything 2018 saw for LoE, just our personal highlights. It was definitely a productive and fun year for our team, and we hope you enjoyed everything we brought to life for you over the last 12 months! Don't worry, though, we still have plenty more to come in 2019, and there'll definitely be some new surprises along the way. Once again, we just want to thank you all for your support, and for the love you've shown us ever since this silly little project started all those years ago!



We hope you enjoyed this trip down LoE's memory lane and hope to see you again in 2019. Don't forget: "Pony should pony pony!"

Legends of Equestria's 2018 Holiday Update is Live!

Dec 24
Hey again, everypony! There's still a little time left (emphasis on little) that we can credibly get away with releasing a 'holiday' update, so in our now-yearly tradition, we're pushing one out in the eleventh hour! Version 2018.10.01 is now available from our downloads page.



First things first: as you might expect, this update brings the now-traditional (two years in a row is enough to establish a tradition, right?) snowfall in Ponydale, as well as some winter-themed decorations. Other seasonal additions have also been restored, such as the rare Enchanted Ice Skates drop, and Ensemble's holiday costume quest!



On top of that, we're adding something really, truly, very exciting. More exciting than anything else we've ever added. More exciting than socks.

Yeah, I said it; more exciting than socks.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the new must-have adorable cosmetic item: scarves!



Now available from your local clothes-horse.

There's other new additions, too! Two, actually - two new armor sets are now available. Iridescent Armor can be created by speaking to expert artisan Golden Gauntlet, whose unrivalled technique allows her to combine Sunlight Armor with Marble Dust to create something new. It's not just NPCs getting new creative power, though; player artisans may also discover new recipes to create Pearlescent Armor!



There's plenty more included - new quests, readable book functionality, updates to textures and music, and more. You can check out our full changelog post for all the details!

We hope that you enjoy the new content, as well as the seasonal specials! As always, though, if you have any issues or bugs to report, please do so using our Phabricator system, as explained here, to ensure that the right people on the team know about the issue and can get to work on fixing it.

Happy holidays from the whole team to every single one of you, and we'll see you in Equestria!
