Breeding Pendant Results

Site Update

Goto News Post


See below for pendant news!


Just popping in to say that Radioactive Breeding Coins are now unlimited stock in the Premium Shop.

-----------------
Hello again, Aywas!

magic_breedingpendant.png

After leaving the poll up for the full weekend, waiting until votes slowed and we felt we had gotten as many votes as we could, it's been decided that all Breeding Pendants will become predict-only. We will be giving a grace period of until 12:00 am, August 1st for users to submit any last breedings with the pendants before we turn them over to predicts. If you have a current Pendant breeding in queue, it will not be affected by this change; this decision is only for Pendant breedings going forward starting August 1st.

explore_heavysackofpaws.pngmagic_platinumdollar.pngcollectable_boxofgoldcrumbs.png

With this change, however, we wanted to make predictions a little more enticing for our users, so we're announcing updated and new kickbacks!

Some have been updated, such as Breeding Coins going from 10 GP to 25 GP. Some have been added, including Sketch and Scribble which give 7 and 12 GP respectively! None have been lowered, though some remain the same.

We'll be working on including these in the Knowledge Base, so be on the lookout for that! Until then, however, here's the full list of Breeding kickbacks;

• Platinum Breeding Coin/Pendant - 30 GP + Grazelle Sapling

• Alidae Egg, Blind Date, Breeding Coin/Pendant, Eggnog, Dragon Lotus, Evil Breeding Coin/Pendant, Holiday Breeding Coin/Pendant, Neura Embryo, Transitional Fossil Egg - 25 GP

• Scribble Breeding Coin, Smudged Scribble Breeding Coin - 12 GP

• Sketch Breeding Coin - 7 GP

• Metal Breeding Coin/Pendant - 500,000 BP + 5 GP

• Holiday Mistletoe, Lesser Breeding Coin/Pendant, Mininogg, Painted Lesser Breeding Coin, Painted Metal Breeding Coin, Speed Dating Slip - 5 GP

• Rusted Breeding Coin - 3 GP

• Half Lesser Breeding Coin - 2 GP

• Radioactive Breeding Coin/Pendant - 150,000 BP

• Derp Breeding Coin - 60,000 BP

These new kickbacks will take effect immediately!

There will be more announcements forthcoming, but we still need a little bit of time to work them out so that it's fair and benefits everyone, so stay tuned over the next couple of months!


---------------------
Also, we are paying artists more, if you would like to join a site team you can check out this forum here! (I'm still updating all threads with the new payments, so please bear with me!)


30% Edited - Old: 30 GP, New: 40 GP

Breeding Pendants: Discussion and Poll

Site Update

Goto News Post

Good evening, Aywas!

We said we would be back for your input on some big changes, so here we are.

We've been making many short-term changes to breeding lately, namely in the withholding of Coins until the queues die down. However, there was one aspect that we didn't touch on at the time as we were still working to gather ideas on how we could compromise between fairness to the userbase (you guys!) and to everyone working behind the scenes on the breeding panel.

So now, let's discuss breeding pendants.



Unfortunately or not, depending on where your opinions lie, Breeding Pendants are going to have to change. However, we wanted to let everyone share their voice and opinions on the matter. We've come up with a few ideas that we think you'll like!

Pendants become predict-only, but the regeneration time is reduced. This means that Pendants will work as Half Breeding Coins, but will have a faster regeneration time than they currently do.

Pendants have their regeneration time doubled. For instance, Breeding Pendants currently have a 3-month cooldown. If this option wins, that time will be doubled to a 6-month cooldown, and so on as applicable for each Pendant.

Pendants take more time to regenerate but can be traded in for a predict-only version that retains the original regeneration rate. The new rate will be discussed among staff, but, as said, the Pendant could be traded for a version that works as a Half Breeding Coin with the current cooldown.

Pendants have a longer regeneration time but owners are compensated with a regenerating custom-making item. This will vary between Pendants, but if, for instance, a Pendant that could be used 4 times a year was changed to having a regeneration time that made it so it could only be used 2 times a year, then the custom-making item would have those 2 lost uses per year. As Eve put it when we were discussing it, " 4 uses reduced to 2, custom maker gives 2 uses a year"

The 2nd most voted-for option with the addition of turning in the Pendant for another item. This one is fairly straightforward -- if this choice wins, we'll take the option with the 2nd highest vote count and then, later down the line, release a second poll with options for the turn-in.



We understand that some of you are going to be upset, that you feel like your Pendant isn't worth what was paid for it, but we also need to maintain a balance on the site to ensure our breeding artists don't get burnt out almost before they begin. Staff hopes that these options, or at least one of them, will appeal to you!

Pendants become predict-only, but the regeneration time is reduced.

Pendants have their regeneration time doubled.

Exotic Pet Palace Stock

Pets

Goto News Post

store-npc-9.png


"As some of you may have noticed, my Exotic Pet Palace has received a new stock of pets! They're eager and awaiting new loving owners!"



In case you weren't aware, the Exotic Pet Palace is on a stock rotation schedule with the stock changing every 3 months. After the 3 months, the pets currently in stock will be permanently retired and a new stock will replace them. So get them while you can!

If you want to have the chance of getting a design of yours into the pet shop, go ahead and submit them to the Pet Coloration Submissions forum. Most of the submitted designs will be put into Adventure, but some random designs will be kept to go into the pet shop!

If your design is now in the pet shop please contact Lacia (#25044) for your free copy. That's right, if your design is accepted and put in the shop you get a free copy. That could save you a good amount of BP!

Gradient Gargoyle gets a Great-ient Update!

Items

Goto News Post

magic_minigradientgargoyle.png

Who's that? The Mini Gradient Gargoyle? Oh, he's holding some papers... He's put on his reading glasses... It looks like he has some important updates for you guys!

magic_metalbreedingcoin.pngeggcoin2.pngmagic_sketchbreedingcoin.png

The Mini Gradient Gargoyle is now compatible with MBC, LBC, and SkBC!

For MBC and LBC, it will add a gradient to one of the markings on the offspring. In order to work, however, all parents must have their PSDs attached with the markings separated.

If it's added onto a Sketch breeding, it will act as a Derpy Dragon with an edit between founders!

Oh, now he's shuffling his papers so I guess he has more to say!

collectable_metaldesignticket.png

This is a reminder that if you are applying to any of the panel teams (GCC, SCC, or MDT) you must PM Juke (#7625) along with your payment preference, either GP or Artist Credit.
This is to ensure that you're placed on your preferred team as quickly as possible!

Artist Updates!

Site Update

Goto News Post

clothing_artistholdablepalette.pngclothing_artistpaintbrush.png
We have some breeding updates/announcements for everyone, so bear with me please!

First off, is a new item especially for active artists!
collectable_breedingart-agebag.png
The Breeding Art-age Bag is a special openable item that will be given to all active breeding artists (active means that you have completed a breeding in the last 30 days). When opening this item, you will be given 2 random items that have been put in there! There are lots of cool things like Half Breeding Coins, Hybrid Custom Crystals, Claw Cloners, Breeding Add-ons, and even more.
You can see the full list of items at the bottom of this KB article!

If you did not receive this item and think you should have, please PM Kita #3988 and she will look into it for you!

magic_paintedmetalbreedingcoin.pngmagic_paintedbreedingcoin.png

If you have a Painted Breeding in queue, this message might be for you!

Please check the notes and PSDs of your painted breedings are complete! In ONE WEEK (July 11, 2020) Painted breedings that are missing a PSD, missing a theme, missing artists for painted pens, or missing something that is required for the breeding to be completed it will be refunded and you will need to resubmit the breeding.

This will also include Painted breedings with copyrighted or improper notes for the theme and colors. A Painted Breeding is not a commission, so please do not be overly descriptive or detailed in your notes. Please see the Painted Coins KB for more details.


magic_scribbleartistticket.pngmagic_sketchartistticket.pngmagic_paintedpen.png

Site Artist Article!

If you have a ticket or painted pen on your breeding please make sure you update it to current artists! Depending on the coin, there may only be a few active artists. Keep an eye out on the list of artists as we may be adding some soon! If you are using a Sketch Ticket make sure you have 3 active artists listed, or it will be refunded. If there are not 3 artists on the list you are interested in, please choose the "Will have Predicts" option to have your breeding removed from the visible queue until you're ready with your artist list!"

-Ticking the box will keep your place in line when you untick it later, and if you bred to someone else's pet, save you having to re-breed, like would happen if breeding is canceled.


Thank you! Please feel free to PM Kita #3988 with any questions in regards to this as well!
clothing_artistholdablepalette.pngclothing_artistpaintbrush.png

We are also still (always!) looking for Artists for our wonderful breeding teams!

_asecret.png_asecret.png_asecret.png


Scribble and Smudged Scribble are next! With a pay starting at 25 GP per breeding and adding 5 GP per extra offspring after the first per breeding, it's pretty dang good, if I do say so myself. Of course, you can also opt in for the equivalent of Artist Credit if you'd prefer!

magic_rustedbreedingcoin.png

Next on the list is our very own Rusted team! They're all masters of redrawing markings to fit new bases for 10 GP per breeding, so if you feel like that's your thing, then feel free to check out this thread and give Kozmotis #48993 a shout!

We've got two threads for these, so check this one for PMBC and this one for PLBC!

magic_radioactivebreedingcoin.png

But wait! There's more!
That's right, for the low, low price of sending a PM to Kita #3988 you can join the Radioactive team! You know all those fun mutants that grace our Welcome Back page? You could make those! I hear they're very fun to make! And you can get paid to do it too -- 4 GP per Mutant and 8 GP per Metal.

magic_metalbreedingcoin.png

And, if you call Kita with your application right now, you can also join our esteemed Metal breeding team at no cost to you! Mix markings and colors on pets of the same base and... Guess what? You can get some GP! 8 GP per offspring to be exact! And trust us here at headquarters, there's no shortage of work in this queue, so you're free to mix and match to your heart's content.
Want more information? We've got one more thread for you to check out!
