New patch notes will be posted at the top of this post, and the thread bumped if required. smile


24th January Version Version 3.19.26


The Outlandish Artefact item has been updated, and is now the Unprovenanced Artefact.


The old version approached imperialism in a tongue-in-cheek way that was nonetheless exoticising. This is no longer our preferred approach to depictions of colonialism, and in addition this quality is about to serve a bigger and more involved role in content, so it felt appropriate to amend its description to fit that new role.


We have updated the description on the Bag of Lethean Tea-Leaves item, to make it clear that they can only be used to reset an Ambition before it’s been completed.


With the conclusion to Nemesis approaching, we have had to make some decisions about how Lethean Tea-Leaves will work once you have completed your Ambition.


Lethean Tea-Leaves are purchased with Fate and allow you to reset your Ambition and choose a new one. However, they will only work before you have completed your ambition. Once you have finished your Ambition, the tea-leaves cannot be used to reset it.


We will reveal more about ways you can experience another Ambition in the future, but those plans are under wraps for now. We are also exploring the possibility of adding alternate uses for Lethean Tea-Leaves in some other upcoming content.


If you bought Lethean Tea-Leaves with Fate, and this development will mean they are no longer of use, please get in contact via a support email and we will look at reimbursing your Fate.


17th January Version 3.19.24

We've begun removing support for IE11. That's yer lot, if you don't count the cool stories we've already told you about.

10th January Version v3.12.10-103-g1e7d0928


Little morsels for you this week:
  • Season of Propinquity: the end-of-season trade-in story for this season is now available to everyone who has played The Heretic of Hollow Street, Say it with Flowers and The Committee.
  • At an Elegant Party, it’s now possible to partake of a non-gender-specific option to mingle freely, as is your wont.
  • Issues with living stories and notifications being processed multiple times were fixed.

3rd January Version 3.12.9-113-g6100920e


Just one update for you today, gang:


We had a few requests to remove Deactivated Characters from the Influence count, so that players could replace them with actively playing acquaintances. While doing this, we forgot to include the influence granted by patronage - we've re-included this.

20th December Version 3.12.9-113-g6100920e

Croutons for you on top of the delightful salad that is Fallen London this week:
  • We added an option to Working with the Honey-Addled Detective called Discuss a minor case, which gives you an option to play should you have already completed all available cases.
  • Autofire cards not being removed from hand was still present in mobile responsive view; this is now fixed.
  • Branch currency cost not being immediately updated is also fixed
  • We are planning to phase out support for Internet Explorer 11 in the new year. Currently, traffic via this browser is about 20 people per day. We apologise to those people, but promise the site updates coming in the new year will make up for requiring them to change browser allegiance.

6th December Version v3.12.10-97-ga9c7ab0d

  • Find a new companion available for purchase (and sale) from Redemptions at the Bazaar.
  • Sky-Stories can now be converted into tantalising goods from your Possessions - if you have the right combination of qualities.
  • We fixed a bug related to autofire cards not being removed from your hand after they were played.
  • We also made a performance update related to card drawing.
  • It's possible to bookmark your favourite login portrait using the following pattern:
    https://www.fallenlondon.com/login?hero=name
    Replacing "name" in the above with "aunt", "boatman", "ambassador", or "edward"

29th November v3.12.10-96-g209849f8
  • A new look landing page in honour of Fallen London's upcoming 10th birthday on 11th January 2020. This is just the beginning of the celebrations!
  • Removal of SuperRewards as a payment option. SuperRewards is mostly used by players who need to pay in less common currencies. (97% of you use our other payment system, Braintree, which will be unaffected, and this won't affect subscriptions at all.) We’re sorry we couldn't provide more notice: we were only informed a few days ago. Given the short notice, we can't say yet when and if we'll add support for another payment provider or other payment methods: we expect to investigate in the next few weeks. If there were any payment methods that were particularly useful to you, though, please let us know in #fallen-london so we have a clearer sense of which ones it would be most helpful for us to support.
  • An updated Help page, including links to this very Discord. Please watch out for lost new players, and give them any advice you can in #beginner-advice. We were all fresh from New Newgate once!
  • A fix for a rare Bazaar interface bug.
  • Also, we’d like to confirm that the card frequency bug which bothered your decks has been fixed.

It looks like it just gives you 5x Inkling of Identity. It doesn't start a repeatable case, if that's what you were expecting.

@ Hannah - thanks for updating the latest patch notes at the top of the thread! Very nice.

=)

What are the preferred browsers for computer and mobile platforms?

Can’t wait to hear what the 2020 announcements are, btw.

I think they go with what Webpack considers dead browsers; this means a margin lower than 0.1%. Off of my mind, this data is from canIuse.

I just noticed that when Attending Parties, we finally do not have to choose anymore between spending time with Ladies or Gentlemen at the very end! Finally, we can just "Mingle Freely"! smile

Why constrain yourself to the hidebound conventions of a faded age? This is London. You will do as you please. - Indeed! Thank you for this! In Love

Ah yes, thank you for the elegant party option. I typically alternated between the two, as I play a nonbinary character, but this is better.

I thought I might as well post the old Outlandish Artefact description (taken from sunless seas) and the new Unprovenanced Arefact description (taken from the wiki, updated surprisingly quickly) so people can make the comparison themselves.

Outlandish Artefact: "This belongs in a museum! Assuming that colonial-imperial appropriation for the purpose of hegemonic taxonomisation is a suitable response to the problem of intercultural contact. Which it probably is, because museums are magnificent institutions."

Unprovenanced Artefact: Meticulously crafted by skilled, far-away hands for a deliberate but unknown purpose, and then appropriated, boxed up, and brought to London because "it will look so handsome over the fireplace."

I like the change. The original joke made me laugh, but you're right about it not really fitting the tone of Fallen London. I'm glad the new description keeps the same joke, but tones it down and includes a descriptor that isn't just about how English Academia thinks about it. The new name is especially nice, since it keeps the whole "Victorians not understanding artifacts and exoticizing them" but makes it a trait of how it's seen (unprovenanced, meaning no research has actually been done into its past) instead of just "hey this thing is weird." Of course, what makes me most excited is the hint that they'll be relevant in future content, which means more stories that deal with either the previous fallen cities or other locations across the zee.

The new description actually ends in a question mark, which seems like a typo.

I noticed that on the wiki, but since I didn't have any of my own Unprovenanced Artefacts to check it in the game, I assumed it was a typo on behalf of the wiki, rather than the game. Hopefully if it is a typo, FBG will notice and can pop in and fix it.
