“The world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth,and I smell it in the air.”
|Full bright TREEBEARD LE in its natural habitat.|
The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team went deep into J.R.R. Tolkien's Fangorn Forest to bring back our 2018 New Year's Limited Edition, TREEBEARD.
The oldest of the Ents in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Treebeard was a tree-like creature, "a shepherd of trees," and as the wizard Gandalf said, "the oldest living thing still walking the Sun upon this Middle-earth."
As Ents do, Treebeard came to resemble the plants he herded, and the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is no exception. This LE is genetically designed to guard your grow in the coming New Year!
Like its namesake, ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is strong and slow -- high potency, slow growing indoor/outdoor plants. Although the "real" Treebeard was four meters tall, these are medium large plants at 1.925 meters tall and wide, and feature subtle sprite-like Entwives FX.
(Entwives, you ask? Hey, we're NOT going to read LOTR to you! Go buy the Cliff Notes! Watch the movies! Google is your friend. Does this mean there's a LOTR set heading our way in 2018? You tell us!)
Two seed packs are on sale for L$420 and 10-seed bulk packs for L$2100 at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central.
What's more, TREEBEARD is our first Version 4.19.905 release! So we've released a new HUD (Version 4.20180101) for your updating enjoyment!
Version 4.19.905 has several new features, but the most exciting is the new myGrow 2.0 web page link. Instead of the old hard to use single page list, the new myGrow is "paged" and provides several basic search filters to help you locate your currently growing plants. New version plants record more information about themselves: tint, glow, FX, and importantly, location. So for 4.19.905s, you're able to click a SLURL link on your myGrow 2.0 page that can transport you directly to that specific plant! (You'll still be able to see older version plants in myGrow 2.0. Those listings don't include FX, tint, and glow stats, and the direct teleport link isn't available.)
What's more, the myGrow 2.0 system encrypts your username and ID. Privacy, privacy, privacy! But as they say, better safe... Now, if somebody wants to see your myGrow page -- perhaps to figure out a buy or trade -- they'll have to get the link from you!
You'll find your personal link to myGrow 2.0 in the Help Submenu of every 4.19.905 plant as well as in the HUD Menu > Help Submenu of HUD 4.2018.
Additionally, we've added AutoPause and PassGroup controls to the plant menu. Now, AutoPause is available to HUD-phobic growers (who get no benefit from PassGroup anyway). but more importantly, this lets you fix any cross-ups when configuring a group with the HUD. (Yes, we all forget to click plants "HUD On" when setting up groups! 😜)
AutoPause and PassGroup are found in the new Special Submenu of plants' Advanced Menu. This meant moving the Banner button from the Advanced Menu back to the Main Menu to make room for the Special Submenu on the Advanced Menu.
Confused? Good! The bottom line is that you're now only two clicks instead of three from hiding hovertext banners! (Djeaux thinks this is the coolest part of the new version, but he doesn't like text banners.)
As always, the new version incorporates a lot of small, mostly behind the scenes changes to make the growing experience work better and provide you with easy access to the tools you need to take your breeding projects to the next level. And oh yeah, we sometimes change things just to make sure that growing ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ remains challenging and fun. (You figure out what that last sentence meant! 😁)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And remember, "it's always 4:20 somewhere!"
