[Info] The Retired Coat Gallery

This thread is here to show off your Retired Coats. This is not the place to post non retired coats. **The two exceptions would be coats that have been pulled (brief discussions) and the pre release coats.

REMEMBER:

******** absolutely no sales talk, no talk about spares or how many extras of a copy you got and selling them to fund your RC habit this is just a place to talk RCs

* although links and graphics are ok on this thread, they are not allowed normally on public forums

* any negative or unkind comments on artists or coats (or anyone!) will be removed, and depending on the case, it might mean an instant forum ban.

* DO NOT use this as a place to sell your horse/coats-if you feel the need to break this rule, it will mean an instant forum ban...

** Sales ads are NOT allowed in any public forums. Asking for spare coats will now be considered a sales ad. This includes stating that you plan to sell a coat, or point out coats for sale in sales.

* Do not use this place as a spot for rants or complaints-About coats/BG/or each other.

* This is not the place to ask players to price your coats, or to ask others the worth of a coat, you can check uses on your own by hovering your mouse over the gray apple and price it from there.

* This is not the place to bring up the subject of stolen images. Keep in mind that the rules of the BP used to be very different, and many old coats are from that time.
There is not any reason to bring that up, or report the coats.

*Please do not do a coat countdown for soon to retire coats.

* Please do not post coats that are currently in the GA and have either not retired, or will never retire.

* Please do not post coat/bg combos or ask opinions on them, except following coat release.

* Some coats may be removed in the future, whether that be for problems with the coats itself or just because they're clearing room on the server to allow other coats to be uploaded - if you're buying retired coats, please keep that in mind. If you want a permanent copy, I would recommend saving the graphic to your computer

* How to discover who many uses a New GC coat will retire-There is now a coat countdown in the GA, and it will show how many have been used and how many uses there are left.

** There is now a new creations directory which shows all coats. Go to Community>>>Directories>>>Creations>>>Click more criteria, and on the left hand side is a gold and silver apple. Click the silver apple and search to see all retired coats.

* To see who created/how many uses/name/or if you have it already of a RC coat, simply click on the silver apple, and it will tell you.

*** Posting links to other player's coats is NOT allowed and can mean a forum ban.

*#*#*#* If players feel the need break the main topic rules, such as sales ads/coat countdowns/spares-you can expect an instant forum ban without any warning prior to it *#*#*#*
 
Go to page:
This was the first time I actually tried to get a new release coat. I’ve never done it before and have been getting more and more interested in collecting, but it was so hard

I refreshed the Directories right when everything was released, but the new coats with the “VIP” button next to them completely disappeared! default smiley (lol) Not sure what I did wrong, maybe I wasn’t supposed to refresh (?) but maybe 5~10 minutes later the page finally worked, and unfortunately the coat I really wanted was gone

I'm not sure what everyone else does but once the limited coats that are going to be released are posted here, I'll go through and get horses ready fir the coats that I want.

Once it's close to release time, I pull up each horse on a separate tab and then go to the page where you select the coats. It's easier if you have a harmony pack on the horse. Then I sit and watch the clock until it's time. Then I just have to select the limited edition sort, select the coat and apply, go to the next tab. Sounds easy right? default smiley (lol)

Yeah, that's what I did, too haha! I've seen players post advice like that and I had several horses ready, but idk what happened to my computer default smiley xd

At least I got the 300c winged unicorn coat by nash12! I really liked it; I managed to get the 200c winged unicorn pony coat from the last release, as well, so I guess I'm at least doing "okay" default smiley (lol)

Did you refresh the whole page?. If you do that it resets the entire search, which you don't want. You can either click back and forth between chronology and popularity to "refresh" or just leave "limited edition" unchecked and the click it at release time to bring up the new coats that way.

Using either of those lets you keep your searches, and more importantly, the payment method. Refreshing the whole page also resets the payment to passes if you had a GA from inventory selected

What's really important to know about regular is that there is a 5 minute delay, the coats don't appear until 5 minutes past the hour

Yes, regular release is always 5 minutes after the hour, on the dot, which i always found weird since the time is listed as on the hour. And the new coats always disappear on the hour, to return as soon as release officially starts, at five minutes after. Its also weird that prerelease is always on the hour, on the dot, with no five minute delay. I have never heard a good reason, or any reason, as to why there is this difference. I'm thinking it has to do with the coats not showing yet at all before prerelease, so it happens on time, whereas the coats need to disappear briefly before officially declaring open season on them, hence the five minute delay. But if that is the reason, then why don't the coats disappear five minutes before the hour, so that the listed time and the actual release time are the same in order to avoid confusion? Or, why don't they just list the regular release time as five minutes after the hour? I don't know, but this isn't the first time i've seen someone in the forums confused about the new coats disappearing at release time like that, which often causes them to miss out on getting the more limited coats they wanted, and i'm sure it won't be the last time.

On my very first release I got caught out by it, this was when Bughs was publishing and I had my heart set on Sunny Weather and Arrbio, still hurts to this day. default smiley :( Luckily they are still active on CA, so I can add them to my collection on at least one of the servers I am on, but I still feel that this 5 minute delay should be factored in to prevent it happening to more players.

I was on vacation during the release and didn't have the best phone service so to save myself the frustration I skipped this time, now I'm regretting it haha! I've been picking up a few coats from the sales though. 35 coats and 2/3rds being 100 use would've been a rough release without my desktop default smiley :s

We are never given a reason but typically it is due to a copyright issue.

That coat is still common in sales.
Also, the collection page won't search for a specific coat default smiley :)

You probably already are doing this, but be sure to narrow down the sales search to the specific species of the RC you are looking for. I love that coat too...put it on one of my pastry babies.default smiley *-)

Slowly collecting after a long time of being gone from this game! I have quite a few of coats I used to own that I'd love to find again, but I thought I'd start by collecting some new ones default smiley :)

My apologies for the late response! I haven't been playing Howrse super frequently on my laptop this week.default smiley :) But for the coats:

The computer coat is called Frenesie by †Exorzist†. And, the one with paper in its mane and tale is Оригами by Skiba613. Both coats are on riding horses. Also, according to Google Translate, the second coat's name translates from Russian to "Origami". So I guess that's why it has paper in its mane and tale. But the paper made me curious, and I wanted to share my findings with the class lol.default smiley xd

Yes. Go to the game play forum and ask any questions you might have there. This page is just about retired coats.

Just had this coat removed. I feel there are various versions of it for different species, mine was on a winged uni pony.
