GAME DOWNTIME AND RECOVERY
- Hey all! So, you have probably noticed the game acting strange since about midnight last night and then it has been offline since about 7am game time. I'm going to try to breakdown what happened and what I'm doing about it.

FIRST, WHAT HAPPENED
- The game stopped allowing new items to be given to players just before midnight game time last night. At first, I thought the database table for items had crashed, but that wasn't the case. Here's the technical answer: There's an auto-incrementing unique ID per item per player. That type (MySQL INT) actually reached the max INT value of 2,147,483,647 so no new rows were being inserted into the table.
- At first, I thought I would just change the type to BIGINT and keep going, but why did it hit 2.1 billion? We don't have that many players or items, so it shouldn't have happened. Turns out it was in 'how' I was adding items to the table. I have a unique constraint on the table for user + item, so inserts were happening even if the item was already in the table (which I thought was ok). With InnoDB the behavior by default is to keep incrementing the auto-incrementing value even if the insert didn't actually happen. It was a bad combination of things and ultimately something I never considered could or would happen. I've changed how I'm adding to the table and redone the keys to be INT with correct values.

BACK ONLINE WITH A BACKUP OF THE DATABASE FROM JUST BEFORE MIDNIGHT
- Everything went really haywire since the items table couldn't accept new items. Hundreds, if not thousands of people, were getting items from playing and not actually getting the items in their Inventory. This affected every single part of the game from farming to the wishing well, pets, etc, everything. I had hundreds of support tickets from players that didn't get their items from quests, crafting, etc, so I had to make the hard decision of reverting to the backup from last night.
- This means if you played from about Midnight to 7am game time, your progress is lost. I hate that so much, I really do, but the game was a complete wreck due to the items not being added correctly. I had a lot of complete activity where no rewards were actually given, etc, and it is a giant train-wreck.

WHAT I'M DOING ABOUT ALL OF THIS
- I've already fixed the table and the code and the ID column. Staff has tested things out and all feels ok again. I'm going to put up an "I'm really sorry" Help Request and give everybody some nice stuff today to make up for it, even if you weren't affected by this you'll be rewarded. I hate that it happened, and even though I try to mitigate this kind of thing from happening, it can happen still. So, I'm sorry once again.
- If you bought Gold overnight I'll make sure you have that Gold still.
- So... that's it. Thanks for reading and understanding and I hope that everybody can pick up from where we left off and continue enjoying the game and community.

SPECIAL HELP REQUEST AND XP BONUS EXTENDED
- Check for the 'Take this' special help request
+20% Skill XP extended through Tuesday evening now

ONE LAST THING
- I realize that during the night some players found runestones or super rare items, and with rolling back to the previous backup, you no longer have that item. Send in a Support ticket and I'll make it right for you. Allow me 24-48 hours to get through them all ;)
2021-10-23:
MEDIUM UPDATES
- You can open multiple things at once at the Locksmith now. There's a quantity box by each item that can be opened. For things that require keys, you can only open as many as you have keys for.
- Make sure you read the notice at the top of the Locksmith and keep an eye on your inventory capacity!
- I listed this as medium because it was a very complicated update to make, but it isn't that exciting :)

SMALL UPDATES
- Feeding pigs no longer feeds pigs on their way to the slaughterhouse
2021-10-22:
SMALL UPDATES
- Ok, so a major source of lag has been identified and fixed! It had to do with item drops in the haunted house and the alerts you could get for so many of those items.
- Many items will start locked, but far fewer of them actually alert you now (just rare stuff and Runestones)
- Treat Bag 02 has been adjusted slightly, but can now be given to other players! Now through 11/3
- I'm about to turn on +20% more Skill XP now through Monday evening!
2021-10-21:
NEW FISHING UI
- The long awaited revamp of the fishing UI is out for all players!
- The main change is that fish caught and net results appear at the top over the water and do not require any interaction. You can use fishing nets very fast now
- NOTE: The "Yes I'm Sure" Farm Supply perk is required to make use of quicker fishing net use.
- The UI looks better in dark mode as well now
- Please note there are probably some kinks in it still due to the number of devices, phones, tablets, laptops, and connections speeds out there. There was a lot of testing on Alpha, but now that its in the wild it will be easier to test and correct these things.

SMALL UPDATES
- Trout Farm is now part of the "Yes I'm Sure" Farm Supply perk
- IN BETA: If you try to retrieve items from your storehouse and the amount would put you over your max inventory, you'll be shown the max amount you can retrieve now instead of losing the items.
2021-10-20:
BANK AND WINE CHANGES / CAP INCREASES
- Big change to Wine values, they will increase in value much faster now
- Wine value now takes into account your farming level
- Wine value caps at 8 million per bottle (10 million with Farm Supply perk)
- Bank interest is now capped at 8 million a night (10 million with Farm Supply perk)

SMALL UPDATES
- 'Yes I'm Sure' Farm Supply perk now applies to Skill Perks, but only for Beta Testers because of free perk resets. This means when you reset you can apply new perks without the confirmation.
2021-10-19:
REMINDER OF Code of Conduct
- While Farm RPG is non-competitive, using any sort of script, bot, macro, etc to play the game in an automated fashion is strictly forbidden.
- The reason for this is that automating the game causes a large amount of server requests and bandwidth usage that is not ideal as the game grows.

SMALL UPDATES
- Speed fixes, especially in Exploring
- Custom chats will stick better and 4 will show now
- Amount in Storehouse now shows on item details
- Bug fixes
2021-10-18:
SLAUGHTER ALL PIGS / COWS
- PIGS ARE STILL IN BETA, JUST FYI
- New Farm Supply perks to add Bulk Slaughter options to pigs and cows
- These buttons allow you to send all eligible pigs or cows based on level to be slaughtered at once
- They should help greatly with the management of pigs and cows as you level them up

STOREHOUSE ITEM STORAGE - IN BETA
- IN BETA: Massive upgrade to the Storehouse Farm Building!
- IN BETA: Your Storehouse can actually store items now. You are limited to 10 different items and 50 of each, but you can upgrade these for Silver and Gold
- IN BETA: Storing items in the Storehouse allows you to get them out of your regular Inventory and keep them safe. This will help you to better manage what you have on hand and should assist with selling things by accident.
- IN BETA: You can even put items you need for fishing/exploring zones in your storehouse and still access the zones!

WHAT IS BETA?
- Beta is supporting the game dev on Patreon monthly
- All features end up going live to all players over time, usually 7-10 days later
- Beta players get a few more perks too, see Beta Testing

SMALL UPDATES
- mastery is no longer counted when sending items through mailboxes
2021-10-16:
SMALL UPDATES
- Pets now bring back items slightly differently. This is kind of hard to explain, but here goes: Before, a pet would bring back the items based on its level, but the rarity of the item was applied still, so you got mostly level 1 stuff, sometimes level 3, etc. Now the distribution is equal, meaning that depending on your pet level there is an equal chance of the pet bringing the items back each hour.
- This change was applied to the wishing well as well.
- In addition, the wishing well has more things now that can be tossed in, including most of the Halloween items.
2021-10-15:
FARMING LEVEL 80 CROP - SUNFLOWERS
- At Farming Level 80 you can now plant Sunflower Seeds
- These take 6 days to grow without perks but are quite valuable

NEW FARM HANDS
- Congrats to TempleofStones, Ffff, Jessica78, Milkbark, Hands
- They are our newest Farm Hands (staff) and will help keep the peace in chat and continue to grow our excellent community

SMALL FIXES
- Made a number of database optimizations. I'm to the point where a query that takes 0.01 seconds is too slow
- I found and fixed a number of tables that needed indexes and got a few queries that were 0.01 to be 0.0001

SAY THANKS TO A STAFF MEMBER
- While it's me working on the game code and development, I've got a great staff helping keep the game running smooth.
- They do a ton of work here and don't get a lot of thanks. They manage the library, chat, help requests, discord and so much more. I couldn't do everything here without their support!
- So, say thanks to the staff today. Send them a fish or something :)
2021-09-26:
BUG FIXES
