Various Updates

2021-01-20 22:22:39

Various updates have been made today in addition to the Mass Explore, Hyper Energy, catch prices, and breeding prices update.

Shelter adopts will start showing up with lower prices ranging from 80-500 PTS instead of the previous 100-1,000. This will not affect previously disowned adopts, but any adopts that are disowned after this point.

Species file dimensions must be equal height = width (square canvas) starting now. This does not affect previously created species, only species above ID #478.

Adopt profiles now have realtime sales options and instant bio code add/removal icons.

All adopts pages now have sales editing options (advanced mode only) so you can quickly price your adopts without having to go to their profile.

Hyper Energy Reminder

2021-01-20 13:46:18

This is a reminder for anyone who has hyper energy items and over 350+ active adopt slots.

If you want to capitalize on today’s updates, take out ALL of your adoptables and fill up your active slots as far as you can. Use your hyper energy potion now if you have over 350 active adopts. Do not mass explore yet!

Proceed to wait until after you see the new Mass Explore news post after 6 PM 4dopt time (or manually explore in the meantime).

We will be rolling out the new buffed mass explore after 6 PM today.

Final reminder that the new Mass Explore buff is coming at 6 PM 4dopt time, NOT MIDNIGHT. We recommend not using this today until the buffs are added.

Upcoming Updates

2021-01-19 14:39:47

This is a reminder that, starting tomorrow, we are going to have three major updates.


1. Creation prices on adoptables are going to be 300 PTS instead of 100 PTS, and breeding will be 500 PTS instead of 100 PTS. Shelter prices will start going down.

Ultimately, our goal is to make adoption cost less than creation.


2. Dimension sizes for new species will also gain a new restriction requiring the height to be equal to the width (square canvases).

Our goal for this is to allow for adoptables to line up neatly on pages where multiple adopts are listed, without the need to crop images.

This will not affect previously created species, which are currently being cropped to fit in a square on multi-adopt pages.


3. Mass explore is going to receive a buff. It will start giving out raw adopt EXP, account EXP, PTS, inventory increases, and treasure slot increases.

Mass explore will also be limited PER CLICK to your adopts per page amount of adopts per click (12-36 depending on your account stetings). For example, if you have 36 adopts per page, you will need to click Mass Explore 3 times to go through 100 adoptables.
This is just being done to prevent site lag, you will still be able to Mass Explore as many times as you like.


4. Due to the Mass Explore update, Hyper Energy Potions will be given a cap of 300 adoptables, allowing for up to 30k energy instead of being unlimited (which could be exploited with the new buffs to mass explore).

Yeah I understand this is moving rather quickly. It was only announced a few days ago on the 17th when we were figuyring out all of the changes we would need to make before the mass explore update. We can push this all back if needed (mass explore buff will be pushed back with this). I wisll post a poll.
2021-01-19 16:12:32

I understand a concern for stability, the longevity of the site is important. It was more a surprise at how large a jump than a negative criticism.

Something to think on . . .

Most everything else sounds like a good update. I look forward to seeing how the new mass explore will behave.
2021-01-19 15:33:44

We didn't run polls because this is more serious site stability concern (a lot of adopt creations = more strain on server, especially as there are more players). If you have any concerns about this let us know in suggestions and we can try to figure out some solutions that won't put strain on the server.

The cost of breeding and creation was also set a long time ago before most features existed. We now have increased litter sizes and other things that could cause problems if continue to add more stuff without raising prices.
2021-01-19 15:28:44

". . . breeding will be 500 PTS instead of 100 PTS."

Was there a previous notification of this, or a poll taken? Holy smokes that's a jump I wasn't expecting.

Layer Group Previews

Item Selection

2021-01-18 10:40:50

For creators, the item selections have been updated to be more convenient. This is the feature that allows you to select items for species transforms, item containers, eggs, recolor items, and evolution items.

You can now 'browse' any item with back and forward arrows. Typing at least one character into the search will bring up 'everything' so you can click through and find any available item without having to search a specific criteria.

Anything more than three characters will run a search for specific criteria the way it used to, though this will still have the new back and forward arrows.
