FH Official News Letter: Spring 2020
« on: May 12, 2020, 05:05:19 pm »
A review of things that have happened during this season thus far & some new things to come:
2020 has rolled in! With spring well underway the time has come to refresh ourselves on some of the things that have gone on and maybe find out about some of the new plans and events in the works. We hope you've all been staying safe and healthy. During these unprecedented times we're grateful to have a place like Feral Heart where we can all find some peace and unity even while social distancing & staying home.


Board & Site Changes
Some of the notable additions and changes:

The past months have been rather uneventful in terms of any largely noticeable site or board changes but there have been some slight changes to note.

- The mod in training name colors were changed from orange to yellow to better distinguish them from the similarly colored moderator colors.

- Razmirz has gone through the process of removing Joomla which brings us one step closer to the updated site.

- Expect to soon see some new Feral Heart themed forum rank names. Thanks to community suggestions on our Tumblr, Instagram, and anonymous polls we’ve got a fun little list.  8)

- After many long sleepless nights, immense hardships, ugly weeping, and bloodshed the random forum dots are no more. We know you guys are probably really upset about this decision though so we have made plans to include all the dots on the upcoming overhauled forum design. Just be patient, we know exactly what you want and will give it to you in a couple more years.



Events & Community Highlights



Rolling in with the new year and spring season comes an all new one time contest, the Official Feral Heart Podium Contest. Tired of that blinding base white character creator screen? Wouldn’t you like to see something fresh, swanky, and new without just having to mod your game every time? Well now is your chance to have a shot at creating a podium that might just become the game’s official podium aka character select screen. If you’d like to participate we’re accepting submissions until June 1st HERE




On February 15th the Feral Heart staff along with the Winter MOTS held a live streamed podcast. During the podcast we had a Q & A session where we answered various questions submitted from the community as well as engaged in discussions about the game and other fun topics. There was also some fun casual chitchat and activities like doodling. Thank you to all those who tuned in and participated! If you’d like to see a recording of the stream you can listen in on part of the recording over on our Official YoutubeHERE





Feral Heart user & 2020 Spring MOTS winner SpicyDirt & Faewyn arranged a lovely little community event in February where they invited users to just get together and have fun in celebration of the Valentine’s season of love. A movie was streamed, various little mini games were played and overall everyone had a fantastic time socializing and getting out of The Grounds and spending time in Eastern Pass. Huge thank you to SpicyDirt, Faewyn, and others for planning out and putting this together. It’s these types of positive interactions within the community that we cherish and love to promote. Spread the love!




As a nice way to look back upon all the enjoyable years of Feral Heart, staff along with the Winter MOTS came up with the idea of Feral Flashback! Earlier this year the community got together to collectively share some of their most memorable screenshots from Feral Heart. Together we celebrated Feral Heart’s entrance into the year 2020 by looking back fondly on times that defined our experience with the game. We look forward to many more great memories in the years ahead! You can look through the screenshots submitted HERE



The Feral Heart Official Instagram page recently reached over 300 followers! It's so nice to have many of you join us on Instagram as well. We appreciate your continued show of love and support for all things Feral Heart and hope that you continue to enjoy the content we share with you! If you haven't already followed our Feral Heart Official Instagram what are you waiting for?!Click here to visit our Official Instagram page!




Let's give another round of applause and congratulations to all our 2020 Spring Members of the Season These folks were voted by the community to be the most deserving of the MOTS title, and we can't help but agree! Each of them have fabulous attitudes, and we hope they'll continue bringing forth innovative and fun new ideas for the FH community.

Staff Changes

Developer Departures: xSpirit, Cattails, ZombieKitteh, marsbone, Thimble, Aureilius, BlueMuzzleFlash, Leda, Auccultist, astralskye, sobieski, & BluuLeopard.

We’d like to take a moment to wish these devs farewell and thank them for their work and efforts with Feral Heart. Due to creative differences and conflicts with Raz’s schedule and overall visions for Feral Heart this development team has decided to depart some months back. Our staff and community alike had an immensely enjoyable experience getting to know them. Each brought on their own special flare and creative touch to the project. They’re a very talented group and we hope that they continue to pursue positive work with projects that better fit their interests.




Development and Improvement
Bringing the community together to build a better game:

Due to our previous developer team leaving to work on their own projects Razmirz has begun the process of putting together a new development team to pick up where the others left off. This team will be devoted to continuing work here for the foreseeable future. While details of this new developer team can’t be announced publicly yet due to things still being discussed and settled, expect to see updates in the upcoming months. Also keep in mind that any WIP projects done by the previous developer team will not be used here as they have taken along that work with them. (This includes content teased in the last News Letter). Any projects and content going forward will be the work of the new developer team.

- We’re still open and looking for content creators for the game! Have skills in map making, modeling, creating textures, producing markings, animating, composing music & or sound effects? Want a chance to work directly with the staff to have your very own work included into the game? Now's the time to raise your paw! Maybe you have what we’re looking for to become a developer for the game! Click here

- Our anonymous feedback polls are still up and running! We encourage everyone to participate! We really appreciate your opinions and ideas. Click here to view
