The primary objective with 3.17.5 is to inject the updated Lunar New Year envelope (Year of the Rooster for 2953), alongside a few fun goodies we plan to give out. These were initially in the 3.18 version, which is obviously not on the live servers yet, therefor we’re releasing a quick patch (3.17.5) to include those in the live build, in preparation for the celebration kicking off next week.

This is a quick EPTU publish to test a couple bug fixes in a public environment with you all and to verify the integrity of the build compared to the current LIVE environment.

  • Fixed – Red Festival – Shopping / Selling / Economy – The Envelopes are not able to be sold at admin office
  • Fixed – Interactables / Narrative – The Horse variant of the Lunar New Year envelopes is incorrectly named as ‘Red Festival Envelope’
