A New Look

From the Release Notes:
  • Yohoho is now free to play, forever, but there are some new restrictions on what free players can do. Notably, parlor and crafting puzzles are restricted except for 'free days'.
  • There is now a form of the noticeboard shown whenever you log in. From this new page you can take missions, jump straight to the inn, or go to your house if you're on your home island.
  • There are new "introductory" missions that take the place of the old intro. The missions can be taken more than once to practice.
  • There are two new hairstyles: pigtails for girls and dreads for boys.
  • There are some new articles of clothing: jerkin and musketeer hat for the gents, and a muffin hat and buccaneer jacket for the ladies.
  • Male pants can now be ordered with a vertical stripe on the side.
  • There are 7 new potions.
  • A new display case piece of furniture has been added to display trinkets.
  • All the new products will initially be disabled at all shops. Managers will need to go in and enable them in order for them to be sold.
