    Hey all!
    It's only taken me several months, but the horse catalog is finally complete! haha! (well minus T9s of course). Thought I'd pop the link in here for anyone who might be interested in seeing what horses actually look like in-game. Most of you have already had plenty of these horses and have seen them all for yourself, but I had fun trying for the more rare horses (can't tell you how many times I bred for that damn T2D!!! :D) and I hope it some new horse breeders.

    Thanks for looking! And huge thanks to @Sofianna for helping me.

    Love seeing how everyone's turned out!
    I have screenshots of all the craftable costumes in the game (up to this patch) here, if anyone needs to take a close look before crafting.

    I wish they put more detail into some of the textures -- the Shroud armor in particular looks pretty muddy.
    The Valencia Travel Suit looks great! Wish there was a female version!

    hahaha!
    I get made fun of for my spreadsheet.... I've had more than 200 horses ...and I kept track of breeds for months. Multiple tabs. 
    Here's my spreadsheet of shame...   Don't laugh at my notes.

  4. violetarc added a post in a topic Finally found a way to disable the horrible forced Sharpness Filter (and other Post Processing Effects)   

    Very interested in this. I almost always soften my screenshots before posting them, so it would be great to turn down the sharpening in the game. Also interested if this is considered tampering by KK.

    I leveled a fair number of horses preparing for horse racing, and what I found was that ALL horses level differently -- even those of identical color. I have a few others in my guild who race and we have the same T1s and T2s. At level 30, they each have different stats.
    At the end of the day, all horses will have different stats, there are just some who start with higher stats and *may* end with higher stats because of that "head start" -- but this is not always the case.
    RNG.
    One thing I have noticed personally, but can't prove, is that the horses that start with higher stats tend to be the unluckiest when it comes to getting race skills. On the flip side, horses that have lower stats almost always get a race skill or two. That's been the case for me, anyway.

    I've created maps of the routes and a few of us from our guild have gone and practiced certain shortcuts we find. I think it makes for an even more exciting race when you know where to dodge an overturned wagon or get around those infuriating barricades around the camps. For me, it's not even about winning but more about finding the fastest route that feels the smoothest. But then, I've always been a bit of an off-roader.

     Don't sell them all, my friend! But yeah, RNG is toying with my happiness, as well.

    Oh congrats!!! I got mine before they made all the changes, and haven't had one since. I keep her in the Behr stable and I'll never give her up.

    I really wish we had markers telling us where the other players are, like in every other racing game I've played. In our guild, we have been trying to remember to group up before the race so we can at least see where we are on the mini, but that doesn't help much when you're racing against others. Would be very helpful!

    This is 'Shindig'

    Yep! That's the visual for Instant Accel.  When you see this, Press F and go into rocket mode! (Once you've leveled it up all the way, that is!)
    My favorite visual is for the skill Roar. Try that one out and enjoy the glow! 
    Congrats!! My current horses in the lower Tiers only have one or the other. But at least lower Tiers level fast!

    Awesome!! That's what I remember, but I wasn't 100% sure. Thank you so much!!
    *runs to make those maps*
     
    EDIT: Maps are done. Thanks again!

    Hey guys! I’ve put together 11 maps of the horse racing circuits and all the checkpoints. I hope you find them useful!
     https://violetastray.com/bdo-horse-racing-circuit-maps/
      Also, I am currently missing two more circuits that I have raced but did not note the checkpoints. Got them, thanks!
     
    Thanks and I hope these help you!

    It was appreciated tonight on the last few races we ran together.
    I will have sprint+instant on more horses eventually!
