A realtime search has now been added to the inventory. Let us know if you encounter any issues!
The old inventory (without search) may be reverted back if there are issues with it.
The pagination on the inventories has also been switched to realtime to reduce site lag. This may be updated again later if users prefer having the page numbers instead of an arrow button.
The item use icons still haven't been added back, as we found while testing this that they are still causing significant lag—we're still looking into ways of solving this.
Note: The basic icons are still there, it's just some of the additional icons for things like hatching and item containers, that were found to be causing lag, and are temporarily removed while we address the problem.
The search boxes in various areas of the site are also being updated to have a button, instead of running searches every time a character is typed. This is being done to reduce lag (since those processes will not be run unless the button is clicked).
A [noexplore] bio code has been added! This will prevent an adopt from showing up in the explore dropdown after being applied.
It will also cause them to be skipped by mass explore.
Per poll results both onsite and the official Discord server, the ability for creators to disable shelter and release to explore access on their species is being removed.
In order to provide plenty of time for creators to prepare for this change, it will not take effect until mid March or later. So if this update effects you, you can make any necessary changes to your species before then.
There is a new feature expansion that's being added to help creators manage their itemns/species. This is the new copyright/ownership transfer option that you can access from an item or species panel.
Transferring an item or species allows you to move items or species between your personal accounts, give unused species/item IDs to other players, or legally transfer ownership to another artist. Be sure to read the copyright agrement and understand the legal terms before sending your creation to someone else.
The submit asset to 4dopt.com option has also been moved to this page. This feature is still the same, but is no longer located on the 'release' page to prevent confusion. It also involves transferring copyright.
Keep in mind that the transfer features are intentionally complicated to use, so be sure to closely follow the instructions. This is designed with multiple steps and confirmations to be somewhat difficult, so as to ensure that a species/itrem won't be transferred by accident.
We received a notification from our website host that there may be donwtime on Wednesday, March 2 (2022) between 8PM and 4AM MT (mountain time/4dopt time). This is expected to last 15 minutes possibly, but sometimes this can vary, so this is a heads up on what we currently know about this maintenance period.
