February News Discussion
February flutters in!

February’s OotS is Sugar Serenade, along with their Crown of Passion and Love is in the Arrow! This month’s coat was created by Morgan, and the items were created by Myla. You can purchase this set in the Out of the Shadows shop through the end of the month!

Coats for a Cause

Our current Coats for a Cause campaign features the Rainbow Serpent coat and benefits the Animal Welfare Institute—specifically, the animals impacted by the Australian wildfires. You can read more about the current campaign and how to donate here! This coat will be available through April 23rd, after which all proceeds will be donated to AWI.

An official welcome!

We are happy to announce that Loon has completed her trial period and has officially joined the team! Over her trial period, she completed a number of assignments that introduced several lovely items to the site. We are excited to see what else she comes up with!

Creative Collective

January’s monthly roundup has been posted and stickers, gems, and prizes have all been distributed! This month’s prompts have also been posted. As always, we look forward to admiring your work!


Our monthly Productivi-Day will be held on February 15th! We had a great turnout last month, and hope that the 15th falling on a weekend this time around will be helpful to many of you!

Image Generation Updates

Glitch put a lot of work into reworking Mycena Cave’s image generation code this month! Not only did this make image generation much faster, but allowed for some rather magical enhancements to the Driftshroom effect. You can read up on all the details here!

Driftshroom & Gloomshroom Updates

Driftshrooms have now been updated to allow players to toggle between which color-shifting method you would like your drifted Mycenians to display. Additionally, Driftshroom and Gloomshroom effects are no longer randomized, and can be adjusted at will, allowing you to get that perfect hue you’ve always wanted!

As this makes the drifting & glooming mechanic a fair bit more flexible, the respective mushrooms are now being sold in Rikur’s Rarities for gems. Alternatively, you can continue to find the components to craft either shroom in the fishing hole!

New Items

In addition to those created as a part of Loon’s trial period, several more player donations were added to the shops! Thank you again to all players who decided to contribute their edits.

Love is in the air

Ahhh, the sweet smell of romance. That can only mean one thing—Peent is preparing to reopen her boutique once again! She promises an array of lovely items, both new and old. Her shop will be open from February 14th through February 21st!

Valentine’s Sprout Raffle

The Sacred Tree is in bloom! Or, rather, it will be soon! Our annual Valentine’s Sprout (and Semi-Custom) raffle is coming up on February 14th. Time to start setting aside your nuggets and dusting off those geness profiles!

A peek at current goings-on…

The current project on glitch’s plate is the long-awaited Marketplace update. This is still largely a work in progress, but we thought it would be interesting to share a little peek at what he’s been working on!


Upcoming Event

There have been some rumblings recently that a new citizen may be moving to the Main Settlement! Preparations for her welcome have been underway by the current residents, who only know one way to celebrate things—a community festival!

Grab your paints and quills, because the Winter Book Fair is coming soon!

Who is this little friend??

Wow, a preview of what items look like will be so useful for newer players! I can imagine the catalogue of apparel is extremely overwhelming if you join later on. Looking forward to the revamp!
