Information for Developers
When a Mystery Item is ready to be released, the images and code required for it are deployed to the production site, and then an admin will update and run the /migrations/mysteryitems.js script.
Updating that script involves adding the "keys" for the new items to the
$each array. Each key uniquely defines one item; for example,
weapon_mystery_201505 refers to the Mystery Item weapon that was released in May 2015.
The script searches through the
user collection in HabitRPG's database and for every user it finds who has an active subscription, it adds the new items to their account.
The script can take many minutes to run, so it is possible for some users to get their items before others. If you see a user in the Tavern saying that they haven't received their items shortly after other users have started wearing them, this is probably the reason why. If a full hour has passed, the user should reload the HabitRPG website and if they still don't have the new items (a very rare occurrence!), then they should report it as a bug (or just wait until a moderator sees their post and fixes the problem).
