Alpha testers have been selected and will begin testing stage one within the next few days. If your application hasn't been approved or denied, you may be selected for the next testing stage. For those who wish instant access, you can still purchase Alpha on the store.
Applications will open again when stage 2 testing gets closer.
It's soon testing time! So, we need some volunteers. Note, those who donated for Alpha via GoFundMe or the store (just added today) are guaranteed a spot. We will only be selecting 15 testers for this set of testing. Spots filling fast!
Just a few small but important updates on the plugin.
Zebras are back. Since we switched to the plugin we were unsure about zebras. However, Heirteir(lead dev on the plugin) assured us we had nothing to worry about. Zebras can now be purchased in donation store. They are located under Zebras are not usable until the plugin is released. ADOPT YOURS HERE!
Horses will now stay out. That's right! We’ve done it! Players will now get so much more use out of their barns, farms, stalls, and horses. This feature still needs testing to prevent any clones. However, developers are certain that is can and will be done.
How many jumps total do you think it should take to get your horses leveled from 1-100?
We are both excited and thrilled to announce that a new Lead Developer will be taking over for HorseRPG 3.0, soon to be known as "Back in the Saddle Again". His name is Justin, aka Heirteir. He has been coding for over 5 years and is ready to work! He has brought so many new ideas and strategies to ensure that Ranch n Craft gets what it has been planning for well over a year.
That being said, A few changes have been made. As most of you are aware we were told that we had to go modded for some of the features we wanted. However, Justin is convinced that we can get everything we wanted and more and still remain a plugin! This does not include custom tack for horses persay. However, we do have plans on fixing that. You can find a list of features that are to be added to the plugin below. WANT TO PLAY EARLY? You will soon see applications open up for over the next few weeks. Yes, weeks! We will allow a total of 50 players each to test for both Alpha and Beta. However, those who donated via gofundme will get first pick in both. If more than a set number of players donate, all will get to enter. What is Alpha and Beta? Alpha is basically where you get in and play. It could be very buggy and things go missing, but it’s a great time to see and test the entire process. Beta is where the entire plugin is pretty much finished and playable but you may have a few bugs here and there. Those who are accepted as tester, both donors and non-donors will need to report any bugs/issues while playing. When? Alpha is set to start within the next few weeks. Beta will begin on or before July 13th 2018!

We have so many ideas on how to make it feel more real that we simply can’t list them all! We took suggestions from all of you to make this great plugin update. We would also like to let you all know that we are aware our plugin releases haven’t been the greatest. However, we are taking steps to ensure that does not happen again! We are aware there will be many questions. Please feel free to ask in comments and/or forums. Lead Dev will be taking two weeks and then you should see updates from him on the forums once a week.
Thank you for your continued support, love, and commitment! Now hurry up and get your Alpha, or Beta spot! Applications for non-donors will open
