Navigation Bar

Posted on 12/2/08

Sorry for all the extra crud in the navigation. It shouldn't be like this too much longer, Savannah is working on making it look nice and pretty for us. ;)

I also would like to apologize for the links being so blinding, I will get that fixed when I have a chance.

I added a count to the forum so it tells you how many posts there are in each category. If it does not say anything that means there aren't any.

Please be sure to read the other news posts bellow this, I have made a few today.

Show Updates

Posted on 11/26/08

I reorganized the show page. I broke it down into three groups Circuit Shows, Player Hosted Shows, and Default Shows.

I also added it so that when I player hosts a show it says who hosted it along with a link to their profile page.

I am currently editing the entering page for shows also. Right now there is a box added that displays the basic show information. I will be making a few more changes, so keep an eye out.

Current Projects

Posted on 11/9/08

I changed the default amount of money to 25,000. So that is how much everyone gets when they register. This is enough to buy a full set of basic tack plus some horses and money left for extra spending.

I did some more work on selling horses today but I am still getting the same problems. I'm seeking some help from other coding friends to see if they can lend me a hand.

I have added a new page called the wilderness. The map is rather vacant at the moment but I plan to add things as I dream them up. None of the pages are up right now but I plan to start working on them, probably won't get any coding done today however. Tomorrow I will be away, so behave!

So Sorry.

Posted on 11/2/08


I am really sorry guys, but I was having a huge problem with the tack store. I thought I fixed it then it would end up not being fixed. The reason for all of this was because one of the item ids was really off and when the id got to that number for people purchasing it it kept stopping because there was already an item with that ID. I started off by deleting all the items, but that did no good because to any horse wearing tack, they still had it. Rather than me going through by hand and removing it I chose to empty the horses table. Meaning. All your horses have been deleted. I do not want to get emails saying they vanished. I am really sorry that I had to do this, but this is all part of the testing process.

To try and make up for the loss of all your horses and tack that was or was not bought I have credited everyone with $20,000. Truly sorry, and I hope this never happens again. But while I am on the subject, please remember that before opening day I will be deleting all the horses, all the posts, messages, shows, items, and money. We will all be starting from scratch.

In other news I am working on getting more features added to the forum like a link to all the player profiles when you add a reply or topic. While I was making some changes I also changed the forum to one that I coded myself. The other forum was coded through a tutorial. I wasn't planning on changing it but I really screwed it over xD so it was the easiest way out.

What can I say..its been a busy day, but there are still more things I plan to add. Please go through and read the rest of my news posts down bellow to stay updated, I am saying a lot today.

Coding Updates

Posted on 11/2/08

I had another problem in the tack store to fix, but I am pretty sure for real this time that all the bugs have been exterminated.

I modified the members list page a bit. There is now a link to each of the players profiles and to their barns.

There are a few things I will be working on today. I plan to start a rescue center where you can abandon your horses for a slight fee. You will be able to adopt horses that people have left there for another small fee. It will be cheaper than the breeder, I am thinking $600.

I also would like to add links to the members profile from a reply they add to the forum topics and a link to horse profiles for when they enter shows so you can take a gander at your competition.

Halloween Updates

Posted on 10/31/08

I would like to first start off with wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween. Make sure to eat tons of good candy and scare everyone!

I am hosting a Halloween Howl show, there are no special prizes, but to have fun. It will be run on the second of November, so hurry up and get your entries in.

I have added a Halloween themed saddle pad to the store, but if you want one better get it quick! There are only five in stock and 39 players to fight with for it.

Lastly I want to bring to your attention that there is a store bug. Please remember this until I fix it.

If it says their is an error, go back and get it again. If it takes your money check your inventory for it first! It does not always say the item was purchased, but if it subtracts your money it was.

Selling Updates

Posted on 10/22/08

I have even more done with selling horses, but it is still not finished. As of now these are the components I have working
-Showing the price and buy button if the steed is for sale
-Changing the Owners ID When purchased
-Updating the horses status to 'not for sale'

Things I need to finish with Selling
-Subtracting the price from the buyer
-Adding the price to the old owner

Once selling is finished I will be able to finish player stores. Once that is done its time for finishing touches!

Max And Min Age

Posted on 10/15/08

I have set a maximum and minimum age for entering shows. Your horse must be between 7Days and 380 days to enter. If the exceed they can not be entered and should be retired unless you desire to keep them.

Within the next few days I will be working on selling horses. I have thought of some ways mentally that might work. Its once again time for me to crack down on business and get this place open!

Today is my birthday so I will be taking it off for coding. But the real point of this post is to say that the running of my birthday show will be postponed to a later date due to my laziness. I have yet to make the saddle pad :O

Don't Worry..

Posted on 10/12/08

Don't worry about the whole moving and people losing their account anymore. The same person who helped me with the shows has kindly offered to help me step by step move Pony over to a new host so we do not lose anything. As soon as I find somewhere I want to move to this will begin. ;)

Moving The Site

Posted on 10/11/08

I have been considering the idea of moving Pony to a new web host. This is only because of all the downtime. Once we open to the public this will not be...I can't think of the word...very good. Players may get frustrated and quite. The only thing is I may not be able to transfer all the players and horses over to the new server. Everything may be lost. Is it a risk you guys are willing to take? Please send me a message with your thoughts to help me decide. If Pony did move and we did loose everything, I will try my best to get you all re-registered. You would just need to pop me an email with a password(because I would write down the usernames in order) and get you back in.

I just wanted to make a public note that someone has been abusing the contact me. I am getting false player reports that are full of crap. If this continues by the same IP adress I will track it and find out if they have an account. If so, they will be permentetly banned from Pony. I do not need my email quota being wasted with crap. It is a waste of my time and yours. This is a warning to anyone. If this happens again I will act.

Feeding, Farrier, and More

Posted on 9/30/08

I will be working on adding an option to feed your horses, groom horses, vet your horses, and exercise them. They will end up counting for an overall stat so your horses health and groom and all that will eventually affect how your horses preform in shows.
