Adoption Centre Breed Expansion Project

By larissar on May 20


Adoption Centre Breed Expansion Project Announcement

We are very excited to announce today the beginning of our adoption centre breed expansion project. This is a community breeding project where we will work together as dedicated (or casual!) HWO horse breeders to improve the quality of each breeds population within Horse World Online. It's a huge undertaking so we'll be focusing on just a few breeds at a time, and anyone who participates will receive a trophy to show how you've helped shape the future of the breed.

We've created a new sub-forum dedicated to this project, and a new topic will be created for each breed we're working on.

We're beginning with the Akhal-Teke and the Exmoor Pony, two breeds that are often used towards creating some of our most popular breeds.

New Layout is Live!

By larissar on May 03


We are very excited to announce the new game layout is live!

The new layout is live and is set to default for new players. Many new features and improvements have been added to the layout, as well as bug fixes and changes requested by the testers in the community. Thank you!

Changes can be found in the Change Log V3 forum.

How do I enable the new layout?
To enable the layout simply visit the Preferences page, scroll down to the option for "My board style" and change from "smarthwo" to "smarthwo v2", then click on Save. You can switch between the layouts at anytime if you need to switch back to the old layout.

Why did the game need a new layout?
HWO has been around long enough that all of the systems the game is built on needed to be updated for it to keep working. We completed the backend updates some time ago, and now the frontend systems need to be updated as well. The old layout is built on technology that will not be supported going forward. Now that the new layout is done we are able to work on game features and improvements again.

How to report bugs?
Continue posting bugs in the Bugs forum, or use the Contact Us link in the footer to submit a report if you're unable to post in the bugs forum.

Can I make a suggestion?
Yes! We very much would like to hear from you. We are still activly developing HWO, including the layout so if you have any suggestions please comment below or use the Suggestions forum.

Thank you for enjoying HWO! Please let us know what you think.
