    Mintie and Staff, the "Saint Nicholas Day Stocking - 2021" and the "Enchantment: Snow Cover - 1 Star" items STILL do not load even though they were released over a week ago.

    I use the stockings to help build my holiday rooms out so it would be an IMMENSE help if the developers could fix this issue as soon as possible.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas! :)


  • Our Celtic Christmas record does not play.  :(

    Waiting (im)patiently for our 2021 Christmas fireplace.


  • Quick FYI, there was an issue at Autumn Imports with the latest members girl outfits for the NY 2022 ball.  There were a couple/few mis-labeled skirts and tops.  The affected colors were 'black', 'white' and 'black and white'.  If you bought any New Years 2022 girls outfits (members only) before today, you might want to go back and check what you have against what's available in AI now.  The labels are now corrected.   thanks staff!!

    Some of the 2021 Christmas doll colours have the wrong previews. For example:

    The "Ice Blue", "Blue", and "Teal" dolls show up correctly when placed, but have the wrong preview in inventory.

    wrongdoll1
    wrongdoll4


    wrongdoll2
    wrongdoll5


    wrongdoll3
    wrongdoll6


    There may be other colours like this as well, these are just the 3 I've noticed so far.

    I realized while going through my inventory that a number clothing items don't have their image load. Where the image typically appears is just a continuous loading symbol.

    This hat used to be named Foam Turkey Head Band but when football items were updated to start with Football Foam this hat was changed too, while it has nothing to do with football.

    The list of items that don't load is certainly growing. What is happening @VFK_Mintie??

    A couple more items that need addressed:  Ice Sorcerer's shoes.  Two shoes are listed as colors that are not shown correctly:


    error
    error1

    I'm gonna call those boots 'done'.  There appears to be an incredibly slight 'hue' to the boots above, even though they look white.  As such, will consider them 'fixed' unless I hear otherwise.


    Ben Franklin portraits are now loading.  

    Fish chowder bowls are now loading.

    Edited to add:  latest heirloom seeds and latest heirloom pin not loading.  Fixed!  Thanks staff!

    Edited to add:  Family V.I.P. 2022 pin still does not load

    (adding on 1/31/22):  Sunday quest bears not loading.  Bears now load!  And they're cute!

    Adding on 2/1/22:  2022 Chinese New Year pin not loading. Pin now loads.  love the colors, as usual!

    Adding 2/4/22:  Valentine's Day Heart Wreath - Pink does not load. now loads!  thanks staff!
    Thanks staff for helping out.

  • BUMP. As there are now 42 thousand threads about CDP taking over the forum.

     BUMP.  As there are now 42 thousand threads about CDP taking over the forum.
    Thanks, Fonna.  I noticed the same.  Remember when VFK had their own forum?  It's so difficult to navigate this forum now, it's almost useless to me.  And most of those CDP posts can probably be consolidated into only a few posts.  I'm glad the new game is out, but VFK is still my focus.  Thank God I'm connected 'elsewhere'.  VFK has also been responsive to this thread, which is a relief...assuming people can find the thread.  Still, there's a need for a VFK-only forum.  Missclue isn't even on VFK anymore, nor does it appear related to VFK.  Major confusion for new and old VFK people alike.  Is Miss Clue 'bigger' than VFK?  Or is VFK 'Epic Ages' now?  Regardless, it's obvious MC is -the- website used by VFK/EA.  As such:  VFK/EA should have their own version of a website dedicated to just VFK/EA.  2 cents.

    Agree. Not to take anything away from the detective game genre and fans but there are a whole lot of us playing and paying for VFK and the list of things that needs to be fixed and brought up to date can be upsetting.
    I notice staff answering questions about issues in CDP but here we are, waiting for things that are not just days late but weeks and even months.
    I don't get it. We are paying for VFK here, monthly, annually, seasonally. 

    Being 'connected' elsewhere has its limitations as any sort of discussion that is not 100% - idk the word really - kind, flattering, whatever -  toward staff is quickly erased.


    Anyway, Staff, if you have time -- this list could use some attention. 

    And @Flamanar recommendation of separating Miss Clue and VFK into separate areas in the least is a great one, please consider.

    Howdy @Fonna and @Flamanar!

    OMG!!  All things which have been mention here should be addressed in the next couple of days!  We always appreciate feedback and will endeavor to take care of anything we can that is reported!

    Also a separate forum is a great idea!!  We will have to see what we can do in 2022!  For now if it might help make things easier to find, there are categories on the right such as "VFK Trading Post" and "VFK Developer Ideas" which if you click them they will filter for only discussions that are in the category which is VFK related!

    Happy February!

    Thanks Mintie.  I didn't mean to be hyper-critical.  If there's ever something I perceive as a 'problem', I typically will offer a solution (hearkens back to my computer programming/beta testing days).  That being said, I don't expect VFK to act on anything just because I spoke up.  We, as players, are kinda on the 'outside of the fishbowl', looking in.  We don't know what else is going on or is in the works (for the most part), so I'm probably mostly guilty of armchair quarterbacking.  lol  I -do- know that you and staff have been incredibly receptive to the items I've reported as being non-loading and/or broken.  For that, I'm thankful.  It just feels like there should be a better way of communicating with regards to all the VFK-folks.  Yes, things seem to get lost in the shuffle, and that concerns me (speaking for myself and nobody else).  It's easy to blame that on the new Miss Clue game, but I hope VFK isn't stretching themselves too thin with maintaining that -and- whatever is going on in VFK at the same time.  

    The filters on the right-menu are helpful, but I'm not sure which to use to inform staff of current issues.  'VFK Trading Post' is obvious, and 'VFK Developer's Ideas' appears to be for future suggestions to be added to game.  'Game suggestions and gaming in general' and 'General' sections are gray areas, as they could be used for either VFK/EA and/or Miss Clue..making for a bit of a mess of conflicting posts in those sections.

    Again, please don't think I'm taking a shot at VFK.  It is -still- my home.  We still pay for memberships.  If we had lost faith in VFK, we wouldn't be paying  I just always look to try to make things better/simpler/etc. as well as reporting issues in VFK (the title bar of the client still says 'Epic Ages Beta', so I'm treating it as a beta!).  I do also think maybe dropping the 'VFK' naming in general would be helpful....yet very messy.  I'm not sure that can even be done at all.  Right now, there are 2 websites with info regarding VFK/EA.  VFK 'news' and the EA devblog.  Each one typically lacks something the other site has.  The same information isn't carried across those sites.  Epic Ages is clearly where we're at, and I feel all new information should be either at one or the other site.  And then there are times where I confuse Epic Ages with the online gaming store Epic Games, lol.  Hey, I'm getting old ;)

    Love you folks, and will continue to try to help and offer solutions if/when I can.  You've been extremely receptive to my postings here, so I am grateful, and I have confidence things will continue to work themselves out fairly quickly.  Thanks for all you do (lots of hugs).  Flame
