Egg Cave is quite the happening place! Visit our blog for the latest updates on everything new that we add to the site — new creatures, exciting worlds, account updates, and unique activities to do!
Welcome to June at Egg Cave! This month's random theme is ICE & CRYSTALS... all things chilly! Some gorgeous ice creatures are headed your way.
Burrrr! This month's Cash Shop monthlies are the Quarina and Pipitallo. An ice eel and ice bat! Scary!
*shivers* An ice theme wouldn't be completed without two Cave monthlies, right? This is the Coreoli and Foka, respectively. Find them through the end of the month in the Cave.
This is another ice-themed creature that will be released soon. It remains unreleased but available for writing in the Creature Description Writing Contest. Submit your entries for it! It will be a Cash Shop creature, release in mid-June.
June monthly trinkets are coming soon. Stay tuned!
The topics are chilling. Literally. Find them at Leila Library.
Congratulations to @sparklefox and @dragonelle and @the_mushroom_nacho, the winners of drawing 2 for May 2018's Cash Shop Creature Lottery! A Kupela has been added to each of your accounts.
Buy your tickets for the next drawing now!
It is the last and final day for May's monthlies, including the Igsoro species in the Cash Shop Park. A friendly reminder that a bunch of species are about to retire!
Have you done your daily Cave attempts for the day? June monthlies could still be waiting for you.
The Bakery has come up with these biscuits that they've called "ship biscuits." Hmm! Good for pirates, huh? Give one a try!
These pots of stew actually look pretty appetizing, considering they were made by pirates, no? Find them restocking at the General Food Store.
These piratey Travels are now restocking at the Travel Agency.
June 2018's random theme is... ICE! Stay tuned for a fun release of themed content!
Who's t' say that pirates don't like bananas? We love 'em, from the General Food Store.
The search feature under Manage Stock for User Shops has been fixed. There was a bug that sent you to the main shops directory rather than actually being able to search stocked items in your shop.
With the help of Egg Cave's finest item collectors, they have pointed out items that are actually duplicates on the site. This occasionally happens during busy release times when we forget to mark an item as "released" and end up releasing it a second time, thinking that it is an unreleased item. Our apologies.
We are correcting this mistake to help item collectors not be confused by duplicate item images. It will also update item collection counts on egg profiles.
Duplicates that have been merged into one another (same image Travels)...
An item merge is the consolidation of two unique item IDs in Egg Cave's systems into one item ID. This fixes egg profile item collection counts.
If you stocked any of the items above in your User Shop, their prices have automatically been reset to 0. You will need to set their price again.
But otherwise, nothing. The only thing you may notice under your account is an updated item name if you happened to possess the "old" item. You do not lose anything from this update or need to transfer everything. We do this all behind the scenes.
The Diminuaith retires again tonight, May 25, at 11:59 PM ECT. Visit the Cave to find it!
These Yeeps are gettin' all up in yer biznezz! Find them at th' Toy Shop.
Your Cove is familiar but has been updated to the new Egg Cave page shell. It is one of the last remaining areas of Egg Cave to be updated to the new design. You should notice massive speed improvements, quicker load times, and better mobile responsiveness on phones and tablets.
Thank you for the incredible feedback so far about user shops. We're working to make the experience and as pleasurable as possible. Thanks for bearing with us as we add even more features and implement fixes.
User shops fixes are as follows...
We have changed the look and feel of managing shop stock. It no longer looks like your Strongrooms (which some of you found confusing). You can now update prices in a large batch (for all items on the page instead of one by one).
Use the new All to Inventory option to send a batch of items back to your Inventory.
You can now mass move items from your Inventory by using the checkboxes and clicking Move to Shop.
Try finding it on another page (this is now fixed). You probably didn't lose the item.
User Shops have arrived at Egg Cave and you can find yours under the Shop navigation drop down. A new profile tile has been added to everyone's profile, too, which links to their shop front. Here's how it works.
You can use the User Shop Search to search for items that you need. By default, the lowest-priced items display first so you will always be getting the best deal. Please note that search results might be a bit sparse at first, as users will need time to stock their items and set reasonable prices.
The main sidebar search does not include user shops. This is a specific type of search (like auctions search or trades search).
The main User Shops page acts like a directory where you can view the biggest shops and most well-stocked shops. Think of these as kinds of leaderboards. But it also includes two tabs called Recently Stocked and Recently r90+ that we think you might find really useful. On these two tabs you'll be able to find the most recently stocked items as they are priced and put into shops.
If you find a deal, snatch it up as quickly as you can!
You cannot buy or sell either eggs or creatures in user shops. Continue to use auctions and trades for those transactions.
Withdrawals and deposits are instantaneous again at your Strongroom. Prior glitches that allowed people to "double withdraw" and generate Egg Coins remain fixed under instant withdrawals/deposits.
With a brand-new way to get items quicker and easier than ever before, we're excited to announce that we have plans to implement a fun questing system (requiring items) in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates!
