Site Fixes for 24 May and Some Browsing Tips

May 24, 2017 at 12:00 AM       17 Comments

Things not looking right? Don't use IE.

If things haven't been looking right at Egg Cave since the switch to version 3 and you're using Internet Explorer, we recommend that you switch to a browser that respects modern web standards better. Any of these three will do! Promise. Everything on the web will be better!

  • Switch to Google Chrome: Download
  • Switch to Safari: Download
  • Switch to Firefox: Download
  • Available for Windows 10: Please use Microsoft Edge, the latest browser for Windows 10.

99% of the time when something doesn't look right on Egg Cave, it's because the person is using Internet Explorer. But the web is moving forward to more secure browsers! So pick one from the list above.

Fixed: Double and Triple Evolution Notifications

Duped notifications for creature evolutions should be permanently fixed. If you get another duped one from here on out, please let us know.

Fixed: Missing Resurrection Stone Creatures

~100,000 missing dead creatures are back from the dead via the Resurrection Stone. Hahaha, funny!

Improved: Creature Evolutions

We've improved the speed of creature images and evolutions in today's fixes.

Last Call: Bird Creature Suggestions

A few days ago, we announced that an upcoming random theme would be birds and we wanted to take creature suggestions accordingly at the Forums. All bird-related suggestions posted at the Forums will be reviewed and chosen on Thursday, May 25. Any suggestions submitted after this date will not be chosen as a suggestion, no matter how good it is! We have to send off your suggestions to our artists in time to have the creatures made.

Thank you for your overwhelmingly positive contributions thus far, Egg Cavers! We love you!

The Diminuaith Updates Plus Site Fixes

May 23, 2017 at 12:00 AM       22 Comments

The Diminuaith is in the Cash Shop Park!

Find the Diminuaith in the Cash Shop Park through 31 May. We have changed its availability to a Seasonal creature, returning again in May 2018. It's such a critical part of the war between plant life in Ark that we couldn't resist!

Permanently Fixed: Randomly Broken Pages

Yesterday, the Forums front page went crazy blank. In the past, user and egg profiles have also suffered this issue randomly. Long story short: this bug has been permanently fixed so Egg Cave pages won't randomly break anymore. This had to do with our frontend templating language and certain characters in users' posts were corrupting the rendering engine. Now, these bad characters are ignored in the templating engine.

In not nerd speak: borked pages are back... for good! Yay!

Archive Design Concept Credits Restored

A few days ago, Archives entry credits for users went missing. It's back now. Sorry about that!

New Known Issue: Missing "Dead" Creatures

You know how the Resurrection Stone keeps track of your dead creatures? From version 2 to 3, we accidentally missed 100,000 of these dead creatures for you to be able to restore across all Egg Cave accounts. We expect to have a fix for this in the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

A Space Creature

The Cosmomon

Terrifying and completely unknown... nobody really knows what this creature actually is. Is it space? Is it time? Is it from Ark? Or from another dimension? Nobody really knows and it's been able to evade capture from the SAR Center in Ark City. This is the Cosmomon.

Now available in the Cave (this is a new Cave common).

Submit Your Bird Suggestions

Submit your bird creature suggestions!

Egg Cave will be having a random theme month coming up... ALL ABOUT BIRDS! We thought we'd let our users know what we're planning ahead-of-time, so that you might be able to submit some Creature Suggestions to the forums with this specific theme in mind.

So, if you're interested... let's create together! To have your suggestion looked at, please tag it with [Bird] somewhere in the topic title. We'll be picking suggestions within the next 5-7 days, so time is already a bit short (in the future, we'll try and give you a little more heads up!).

Following the disappearance of the Garguaith...

The Diminuaith

Following the inexplicable disappearance of the Garguaith from the Cave, florists in Ark City selectively bred the surviving population to produce a household variant.

From May 15 - 22, it will be available in the Cave. From May 23 - 31, this creature will then become available in the Cash Shop Park!


Feed me!

Happy (belated) Mother's Day!

Happy belated Mother's Day to all of our Egg Cave moms out there! We love you and are thankful for what you do!
