{Papillon} Plant "no work" test edit!

Official Notecard

I have made a change to several of the new plants that includes a menu option that allows the owner to decide whether or not the plant will "work".  By disabling a plants, or all included plants, work, you enable whether or not the plant will perform any of its duties; by default, a plant is set to "Working" and performing its job.  Which is usually just handing out food.
 
 A plant with its "work" disabled will not spam the garden's channel and will not do any its other non-breeding purposes that may have otherwise generated lag, be it a little lag, or a lot.  This means that if you disable all of the affected plants ability to work you will limit the amount of messages being sent to your garden, this reducing your overall latency and allowing for more plants and pets.

The purpose of this edit is to allow dedicated breeders to have far more plants than usual by disabling the stream of messages that may have otherwise clogged up the garden's channels by having dozens, or hundreds, of plants.

The affected plants include Crystals, Sand Dollars, Birds of Paradise, Alien Flowers, Fiddler Ferns, Glowshrooms, and Daisy.  After they have been updated you will see the four following blue menu options:

   "Work" tells an individual plant (the one that you clicked) to do its job.
   "Don't.Work" tells an individual plant (the one that you clicked) to not do its job.
   "No.Work" tells ALL affected plants listed above not to do their job.
   "All.Work" tells ALL affected plants listed above to do their job.
   


This update 'o', or 'c', as listed by the update box, does not do anything other than enable those four commands.  

If you do not have a lot of plants (more than two or three dozen)...this update probably won't do anything for you.
If you do not already have latency problems...this update probably won't do anything for you.

If you DO have a lot of plants and have noticed latency in your garden, this update might just have a large impact on your garden by removing dozens, or even hundreds of messages per hour from your garden's communication stream.

This update has absolutely no impact on the plant's reproductive routines.

{Papillon} Wisp v18 update!

The wisps have finally gotten their turn, and there have been a lot of changes in this update!  Please read the enclosed notecard for details =)  The update is available in the green box at the store, but as usual, if you have a lot of Wisps it is a good idea to wait a day or two to see if anyone else discovers a glitch that requires an edit.  There is also an updated multi-HUD with Wisp support, and a nexus collector.

{Papillon} Snail v18l Fix/Update

I fixed a couple of small glitches (and hopefully the big one -.-), as well as a glitched particle and body texture.

BSpeckledC has been fixed, and BSpeckledB was added to the list of body mutations; BSpeckledC was SUPPOSED to be BSpeckledB and got typo'd in there, so I decided to just fix it and add in BSpeckledB while I was at it to make everything line up.

Changes/Updates:
    20%+ Body mutation can now unlock the Monster Body mutation (25% increased size).
    20%+Monster can also unlock the Behemoth Body mutation (Eternal + 50% increased size).

    Titanic can now properly unlock Mondo size with a decent probability (it was a very, very low chance before).
    Mondo can unlock Gargantuan size category!


As a clarification, there is no Archmagi* mutation for Snails.  Pattern and Formula can be unlocked through Mage and Warlock for the snails.  Archmagi was intentionally not included due to the Magi special class unlock.  All mutations that were based on Archmagi* are instead unlocked through Mage/Warlock particle effects.

I made a few edits and fixes to the snails to correct little glitches here and there, and added a few mutations along with unlocking an even bigger size category for them.  Feel free to peek at the notecard for changes.  The snail update box is in the green box at the store, but as usual, if you have lots of snails it is a good idea to wait a day before updating to see if anyone spots any more problems.

{Papillon} Alien Flower/Glowshroom Experimental v18 glitch!

If you were brave and updated to the experimental v18 Alien Flower/Glowshroom edit...well, there's a problem.  Apparently the Golems are stuffing them SO full of potting soil that they're exploding! (stack-heap)  They should be able to be re-rezzed, and updated (to v18c) just fine once the F+3000 or so units of potting soil are cleared out.   I can only imagine a mound of potting soil as high as the clouds raising up the flowers to reach the sky...

{Papillon} Magical Circles! Oops! =(

There is a permissions error on some of the contents of the Summoning Circle (including the candy), meaning that you can only rez one.  The circle itself is functionally fine, but it will limit you to one Candy until you update.  You can find the update down in the store (click the big circle).  It will save your progress and remember what circles/runestones you have already loaded in.  This update isn't immediately necessary unless you want easy candy before you unlock actual rituals and ranks.

ADDED: [15:00] Butterfly Bellflower: I also added a ritual to relax your pets in that circle update (for one ♦).

My latest project in cleaning up prims and scripts is complete!  These circles will replace all of your enchanted circles and runestones that you have acquired from the stockings.  The Circles learn your existing bonuses much like a Trumpeter and allow you to pick up all of those circles that you had laying around.  Please read the enclosed notecard for details =)

{Papillon} Those lazy butterfly saints!

As it turns out, the butterfly Saints are under-performing.  They are generating light at a significantly lower-tier than intended, and the Golems are also under-performing a bit.  There is a v18f update box for the Butterfly available in the red box at the store.  This update -only- changes the productivity of a few classes and has nothing added.  It is entirely optional.

{Papillon} Problems with Magic Frond [Conjurer+Honeysuckle]!

There is a serious problem with the special Magical Fronds that were rewarded from completing the harder Frond challenge.  It is causing significant lag, especially in gardens that have more than one out.  The base Magical Frond, and the combined Glowshroom are unaffected.   If you have a Magical Frond with [Fairy Honeysuckle], [Conjurer], or both in the name, please contact Butterfly Bellflower for a replacement.

{Papillon} The pretty little shells!

The shell are finally finished and are available in the store.  As usual with any release, it's often a good idea to wait a day or so before buying lots of them just in case someone spots a glitch.
