The purpose of this thread is to compile comments released from SSO on their social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, SSO News) regarding anything ranging from future plans to answers to [common] questions. The reason for this thread is these comments often provide any additional info that is not formally stated in their "formal posts." Of course, this does mean things are subjected to change, and comments may conflict during on when they were released. I hope you can read timestamps [Things posted will have the "Star Stable" official user handle name, so I hope it's alright!]
Feel free to add (format doesn't really matter as long as there is proof of the "Star Stable" official user handle name), but if you want to start a conversation about a certain screenshot/link, please start a new thread that way it doesn't stray away from the original intent.
Edit: WIP to figure out how people can express their opinions to certain posts without letting the thread go into a different direction than originally planned.The intent of this thread is to share information and bring awareness to viewers about SSO's answers to (frequently) asked questions.
Still working on the gist of the thread, but if it doesn't make any sense, let me know.
Edit: Please note SSO comments are subjected to change. Plans may change. While posts are meant to be of best interest to the viewers, use your best judgement on whether you will trust the comment or not (the same is true for posting the post) <3

I'll look around for you but omg I really can't wait for the updates on them!!! The white Selle Francis was one (and still is) of my favorite horses. Not to mention their older horses had some of the best coloring!
Also found this on their Swedish region on fb, I don't know if they said anything similar in English sorry. Nov 28 2018. Sab: Couldn't you guys aim for some story missions instead? --- Some information and talk back and forth --- SSO: Thank you! Understandable, and your patience will also be rewarded sometime at the start of next year, we are also psyched for it.

I think a lot of us want an updated AQH. From what I remember last year, there was a game master on the server and a question relating to other horses (AQH, Morgans, etc) getting an upgrade was answered as a possibility in the future, maybe not near future, but in the future at some point!

To be clear, this is not a club members post just a screenshot of a post on SSO FB page we just came across. We took out the personal details to not expose other peoples details on a different platform then they chose to post on themselves. Doesn't feel right to leave in personal details of others. Link to the original post is: facebook.com/starstable/posts/1997518240283304
We are a club for every level player who is actually interested in exploring Jorvik and the SSO story line with respect to all terms. We are around since January 2016 and by now are represented on many servers, on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube. Everything we post is with permission by and from the Curious Explorers Club Members Worldwide or give credit to the source.

I believe the wording for the "all horse models prior to the AQH will be updated" as in the AQH will be included. That's how I took the post they made. : ) The AQH is too popular of a breed to not be updated I feel.
It seems that most people already knew this "tip" was a thing, but I found it interesting and not something I had ever considered doing:
I think this is how some people always stay on top of the leader board, they do the races on a level 15 horse then collect the points on a horse that they are "training". I actually thought it must be an oversight on SSOs part as it seems a really silly thing to be able to do, but obviously they know all about it after all!

Fennec☆: On the topic of Dressage and specific horses, most people try to stick to having one horse for the whole club because of the fact when practicing it with different breeds, it both looks aesthetically unpleasing (at least to them, I could care less)
Nov 1, 2019 23:43:24 GMT 10
Fennec☆: and it would be hard to do as each breed has different turn speeds or speeds in general for the trot gaits.

Luna Autumndew: Looks like the Scarecrow Hill race bug is fixed...?
Nov 2, 2019 10:49:21 GMT 10
Arisha Moonpeak: I was online an hour ago and got no soul shards from completing the scarecrow hill race, so maybe not?
Nov 2, 2019 11:56:46 GMT 10
Luna Autumndew: Hm, the opposite happened to me (I got the shards) but I figured it might have been too good to be true :')
Nov 2, 2019 12:13:48 GMT 10
curiousexplorers: The race is bugged. When you finish the race do not click the OK screen but first ride to the scarecrow with the screen still covering your character. Only then click OK and the scarecrow. That is what works for us every time so far.

Savannah Sunfire: is there any way to disable the photo thing? i keep accidentally clicking 'O' and turning it on

feliciawinterlord: Not sure, but i think you can change the hotkeys in the settings

Cassandra Ghosthurricane: Hey, did anyone get the current promotion available? The starter bundle? Does the clothes you get have good stats?
Nov 9, 2019 16:29:14 GMT 10
curiousexplorers: One of our members got it, +1 of each. Which makes sense as maxed out sets for starters would give them an unfair advantage over those who first need to play up to level 9 minimum to get a maxed stats outfit.

ivannna: I'm on a Mac and having trouble launching, it doesn't seem to get past when I click play. Any recommendations?

Luna Autumndew: Is it just my graphics, or did the minimap graphics change? I was at the Eastern Slopes (at the farm) and I noticed the roads looked more prominent and handdrawn-like, but the surroundings are a bit blurry.
Nov 18, 2019 6:15:56 GMT 10
lilymoonie: Luna Autumndew I've been wonder if there was a change too. For the past couple of weeks I've not even HAD a minimap. The horseshoe and everything else is still there, but not the map :/
Nov 19, 2019 5:10:12 GMT 10
curiousexplorers: They did change minimap, before the update we could zoom in very very far and it became blurry and large, now after two clicks it's already maximum zoomed in and out and small but still blurry... maybe they are working on things with the map....

hejhej: Hello, im getting an error that says i can't connect to game servers, anyone ever experienced this?
Nov 20, 2019 4:50:55 GMT 10
Nellie Winterhill: I haven't but I would suggest uninstalling, restarting, and then reinstalling the game (:
Nov 21, 2019 5:24:35 GMT 10
Nellie Winterhill: Restarting as in restarting your laptop, by the way haha

This weeks update!
Our updated Akhal-Teke is here! May 22, 2019
Hey StarFam! Today it’s time for us to release a much requested horse - the updated Akhal-Teke!
The graceful Akhal-Teke This unique beauty originates from Turkmenistan and is a very slim horse with extremely thin hair in its coat, which gives it an almost unbelievable shine. The Akhal-Teke is also known to have a very thin mane and tail, sometimes to the point where the mane can’t grow longer than a few centimeters.
The Akhal-Tekes of Jorvik have a unique shine to them - you won’t believe it until you see it!
Will one of these graceful horses join your StarFam? ★ What's the new breed? The updated Akhal-Teke!
★ Where can I get it? One horse is located in Fort Pinta while you find two more at the new horse market place at the Silverglade Vineyard.
★ How much does it cost? 850 Star Coins.
★ What level do I have to be? You can buy the horse in Fort Pinta right away, but you must have reached level 13 in order to get the other two horses.
★ Do I need to crunch reputation? Nope!
★ What colors can I choose from? A perlino, a buckskin and a sooty buckskin!
A brand new audio story! We have something very special to reveal - a FREE Star Stable audio story! This short story is called “Texas Bluebell” and revolves around our Soul Rider Lisa Peterson, who’s haunted by some terrible memories during a beautiful spring day out on a ride with Starshine.
This short story is the first in a series of stand-alone tales of Jorvik. More audio stories are on their way! As of right now, the audio story is available in English and Swedish only, but we’re looking into the possibility of translating it into more languages in the future.
Click HERE for English
Or click HERE for Swedish
What’s going on in Greendale? Riders passing through Greendale Forest have reported they’ve heard someone singing somewhere in the woods. Where is this music coming from? You better head out there to investigate!
To be able to play this mini quest, you must be a Star Rider and have completed the quest where you free Lisa from Pandoria.
New horse in Star Stable Horses! A very special North Swedish Horse foal has arrived to our free-to-download app Star Stable Horses! In Star Stable Horses, you can raise your very own horse from a baby foal up to a level 10 horse, ready to hit the Jorvik racing tracks with you as its rider. When this precious reaches level 10 in the app, you can transfer it to Star Stable Online for 749 Star Coins. The coat of this very special horse is called Texas Bluebell, and if you listen to the audio story by the same name you just might figure out why...
This special horse is not a Jorvik Wild Horse and will therefore not change its coat colors. This unique horse coat is available for a limited time only. Make sure you transfer it to Star Stable Online before July 1st if you want it to join your StarFam!
Coming NEXT WEEK! Next week we’re finally releasing Linda Chanda’s show jumping saddle! But that’s not all!! We are also releasing some matching bridles, a few saddle pads and leg wraps in new, fancy colors. Stay tuned!
Spirit is leaving soon! It’s almost time for Spirit to leave Jorvik! During the Wednesday Update on May 29, Spirit, along with the fangirls Tori and Sally in Fort Pinta, will leave Jorvik for good. If you’d like to befriend Spirit and invite him to stay in your home stable, make sure you do so before next Wednesday!
If you get Spirit before he leaves, he will stay in your home stable and you can ride him anytime you want. If you sell him, you will not be able to get him back. The same thing goes for the items from Tori and Sally’s shop in Fort Pinta!
If you have bought the Miradero apple but haven’t been able to give it to Spirit before he leaves, he will automatically appear in your stable after the update next Wednesday.
Horse Market The Horse Market is closed this week.
New Star Stable Launcher We’ve started rolling out a brand new launcher for the game, which some of you may have seen already! We’ll continue to release the launcher to more players as we make sure that it’s working just as it should.
For Mac users, there is one important technical change: the minimum system requirement will be changing from Mac OS 10.9 to Mac OS 10.10. Make sure your Mac is updated and you shouldn’t encounter any trouble!
We hope you all will have an awesome week until we meet again!
Hugs from your Star Stable Team ♥
