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
