Updated Version 3 Transition

April 20, 2017 at 6:00 PM

VERSION 3 TRANSITION - Egg Cave will be transitioning to version 3, an updated look and design for the web site, on 24 April 2017 beginning at 9:00 AM ECT. It's the same game and community you love, with a brand new look!

Like the previous transition, we estimate that this maintenance will last between 6-9 hours. During this maintenance, the site will be offline and you will not have access to your account. About 2-3 hours into the transition, your creature images will be back online.

We're back and confident in this transition!


Since the last attempted transition a few weeks ago, we discovered multiple points of failure that we believe we have fixed. We apologize for the downtime on that day and for any inconvenience caused. We're much more confident in this second try at version 3 and are confident that the site will run better than ever.

Thank you!

fakeworld • 20 April 2017 at 6:17 PM

jello • 20 April 2017 at 6:22 PM

I just transferred a third of my cove to @honeybadger when it could've been a lot easier with V3.

element • 20 April 2017 at 6:22 PM

If it doesn't work again...just...just...leave eggcave the way it is! xP

_black3333_ • 20 April 2017 at 6:23 PM

Darn, I was hoping it would take longer, lol. I'll miss v2, it looks better. Good lucky with the transition, I supppse!

Orderedchaos • 20 April 2017 at 6:24 PM

@element It has to change. You want to new features added to the site, we need to update the code, we cant do that in v2.

kat-chan • 20 April 2017 at 6:25 PM

Well hopefully I guess everything will work out this time Ima miss V2 a lot though :'c

gogetavegito2498 • 20 April 2017 at 6:25 PM

dappne6 • 20 April 2017 at 6:26 PM

;( I like V2

element • 20 April 2017 at 6:27 PM

@Orderedchaos - I know, I was j/k. I'll have an eggcave withdrawal if the update doesn't happen this time.

dragonfairy • 20 April 2017 at 6:30 PM

jjlapple • 20 April 2017 at 7:39 PM

GoodLuck eggcave....but I love version 2 I'm thinking of quitting if I don't like version 3 much... (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO)

tash • 20 April 2017 at 7:48 PM

Better not leave us in suspense again x_x

mastergemma • 20 April 2017 at 8:11 PM

@jjlapple Like all things new, it will take some time to get used to. Give it a long, hard thought and a few weeks before deciding.

jjlapple • 20 April 2017 at 8:12 PM

I know...

jjlapple • 20 April 2017 at 8:13 PM

@mastergemma I don't really like changes...but I know I have to deal with it in life so (i'm not quitting)

lykhaos117 • 20 April 2017 at 8:32 PM

So excited!

novrain62 • 20 April 2017 at 10:27 PM

I will miss V2, too I really think it's beautiful. I must have thought that on V1, also, but I don't remember now hahaha Good Luck!

prairie • 20 April 2017 at 10:43 PM

Best of luck to Eggcave Staff!! I know you guys can do it!!

icymuffin • 20 April 2017 at 10:58 PM

@novrain62 Sometimes I still kind of miss V1's dark, dark green and grey. Felt a bit like a cave, haha~

jello • 20 April 2017 at 10:59 PM

The part I am most excited about is more frequent oasis and ts and 20 creature lots.

novrain62 • 20 April 2017 at 11:00 PM

@icymuffin - definitely! lol

degong • 20 April 2017 at 11:04 PM

Yay~! There are so many new, amazing features I'm looking forward too. Go Eggcave Staff~! ^-^

wolfplay245 • 20 April 2017 at 11:13 PM

OOOOOOOO so excited!! you guys are great and im glad i came back to this wonderful site!

veritaspunk • 20 April 2017 at 11:27 PM

@raccoon @element The saying in Arkian society must be "Second Time's A Charm" instead of a Third.

element • 20 April 2017 at 11:30 PM

@veritaspunk - Ooooh, that's perfect! xP Better be or I will really get eggcave withdrawal on Monday if waiting 6-9 hours was just in vain.

thaliel • 20 April 2017 at 11:35 PM

keeping my fingery crossed it will work out this time.

veritaspunk • 20 April 2017 at 11:35 PM

@element Then again in a sense that could mean V2 or Attempt 2 at V3 .. or both :shrug" I just hope it doesn't look like St Paddy on LSD

element • 20 April 2017 at 11:40 PM

@veritaspunk - I just want coves and creature profiles to be neat and compact ;.; What do you consider LSD to be? Too much green?

veritaspunk • 20 April 2017 at 11:48 PM

@element My creature image on right instead of left on my profile was trippy enough

asbe • 21 April 2017 at 12:32 AM

Still not sure I will like it very much. New auctions are... weird :/

murfijs • 21 April 2017 at 12:57 AM

some time ago v3 started crashing my browser i hope its fixed

sybil_howlett • 21 April 2017 at 1:27 AM

YAY I can't wait, I really love V3 but I'll miss V2

333 • 21 April 2017 at 1:51 AM

Wooh! Good luck!

jello • 21 April 2017 at 7:34 AM

@asbe I don't use auctions that much, so... I'm kinda neutral to that change.

sparklefox • 21 April 2017 at 11:02 AM

Let's hope it's alright this time.

asbe • 21 April 2017 at 11:31 AM

@jellifysh Well, I do...

skyfall4 • 21 April 2017 at 2:46 PM

Dun. Dun. DUUUNNNN!
