4dopt is a site where artists can upload layered images, allowing their adoptables to be heavily customizable. Make the most adoptables with hex fills, hue, saturation, and brightness modifiers, multiply, clipping masks, and more. Randomize, breed, and collect! Artist decide how their species and items are used, and players get to enjoy them!
Create colors! -
Upload your artwork in as many or few layers as you need to create fantastic colors!
Accessories - Create any accessories you want with 4dopt's layering system! Let users apply them with your own custom items.
Habitat - Choose a habitat (or more than one) where your creature can be encountered in the wild, and a capture method, too.
Stats - Give your creatures stats and choose methods of increasing them such as with items or breeding.
Evolution - Choose from multiple evolution methods including level, gender, stats, items, and age. Branching evolutions, de-evolutions, and alternate evolutionary methods are also supported.
Hatching - Allow players to hatch your creatures from eggs. Choose which colors will hatch from which eggs.
Breeding - Breed your adoptables within their own species, or outcross with other species. Set your own inheritance chances for marking layers and colors. Colors like rainbows and fire can be as common or as rare as you want.
Your Rules - Don't want your species to be sold or sent to the shelter? Or recolored? Or bred? There are many permission settings you can choose to restrict usage.
Explore a vast world to find items and adopts! The explore system supports respawns, so you don't have to worry about clicking past something and losing it forever.
4dopt's exploring mechanic has 2 respawn pools: the Personal Pool and the General Pool.
Your personal encounter pool is for you only. Whether you clicked past something or you didn't have the item needed to catch it, you can be sure that it will respawn just for you!
If you don't want something you found, click 'shoo' to switch it to the General Pool.
The general encounter pool is for everybody. Everyone can encounter everything that is on the General Pool. If you saw a good adopt that you think someone else may enjoy, you can "Shoo" it away, and there's big chances someone else will enjoy it!
The system also includes randomly generated names, but if you are not a fan of the names you get, you can change them with an easily obtainable name-changing item.
Although artwork must go through an approval process, 4dopt supports artists of all skill levels from beginners to more experienced artists. We do not restrict artwork based on skill level. However, we have policies against:
- copyright infringement
- distasteful or offensive art
- anything above a PG-13 rating
- artwork that goes against our Terms of Service
Even with our policies in place, we understand that not everyone likes the same things, so 4dopt provides a tagging system for more advanced blocking options. User-submitted images may be blocked so you don't have to see them ever again!
Items and species must have at least 3 valid tags, along with being sent through approval process to help ensure a good experience for users.
