New Standing Stones & Breeding Database!

Site Update

Goto News Post

Stones.png

Yasu, Kyu, and I are pleased to tell you that the breeding code has been finished! *dances*

First, the Standing Stones has gotten a face lift! Not only that, but quite a lot has changed functionally. We attempted to take most of the guess-work out of breeding so that the entire feature is friendlier to all users. :3 The rules regarding add-on compatibilities with coins and other add-ons are now coded into the feature. In addition, add-ons are now marked if they have any restrictions such as not allowing predictions or not being allowed to be added after a breeding is in queue. This is all easily accessible to me so I can tweak new add-ons or any wrong information quickly and efficiently!

If you find any bugs or problems with the new Standing Stones, please visit this thread.

Second... you may notice that if you search a breeding coin or a breeding add-on... their pages may be a little different. ;)

Add-on Example

Finally... we have a new feature that I am very excited about, the Breeding Database! Think of this as your way to plan dream breedings and test to see if everything you want is compatible without having to own it!

This database is a bit more complex than the others on site, so we wrote a nifty little FAQ to help you use it!

If you find any bugs or problems with the new Breeding Database, please visit this thread.

Welcome to January - Part 2

Site Update

Goto News Post



January is kicking off with a new Breeding Season, bringing you two new hybrids! These hybrids were designed by Mauri and named by her too, so be sure to thank her if you like 'em!


Yetius (Ryba x Orimi) -------- Chugon (Quol x Wibbit)

Ara is happy to see some new hybrids, and we hope you like them too. To fit the occasion, the Breeding Coins are stocking in the GP Shop for the next week.








This month's Jeweled bases were done by Kirara (#11849)! Anyone interested in Jeweled bases should contact me if you'd like to make a set. They're a lot of fun!


Kyu and Mauri are so excited to show you their new Breeding Database. It should be coming out within the next few days, so look forward to see what they've got planned to make your breeding life easier.

For many of us, ushering in a new year brings with it an optimistic set of resolutions, goals, hopes, etc. for the months ahead. I try to make a few promises to myself each year--a set for my personal life, professional life, creative life, etc., that I don't share with anyone else. But I also try to make some fun goals that I can discuss with friends so that we can help each other realize our aspirations. :3

Here on Aywas, I'd like to invite you to share some of your pet- or item-related goals, desires, etc. with us--and your wish just might be granted!

Pet Wishes | Item Wishes

The deadline for each is January 31st at 11:59 p.m.
Both have simple rules outlined in each thread, but please ping me with any questions.
Bonus points* if you share a little tidbit about why your wish is important to you/is something that you're after. 8D

Best of luck to you!
*You don't really get bonus points as wishes are granted at random, but it does make reading more enjoyable for me!

Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-January) so we have time to snag 'em for science

magic_essenceofjanuary2016.png

The Essence of January 2016 was crafted somewhere in the mythological mountains of Ay and kicks off a brand new monthly potion theme for the year--the 12 Olympians! This particular bottle was inspired by Hestia and her hearth. A sip of this fiery liquid will transform your active pet into one of the monthly colorations above at random.

For now, the premium monthly item, is a copy of the January essence to start your yearly pet and item collections off on the right foot! Slash may switch this out to a different item soon, so be sure to collect your Essence asap in order to get both if he does indeed do a switcharoo. Feel free to PM me directly with any questions.

Pet Shop Warning & Breeding Application Notice

Site Update

Goto News Post

miksa_icon.png

Hello everyone! I wanted to give you a bit of a heads up that I'll be changing the stock in my shop come January 7th! So if you want to own any of these pretty pets I currently am selling, you should buy them before January 7th. On January 7th they will be permanently retired and new pets will take their place!


Also a big giant thank you to Kousei (#25044) for being the new Pet Coloration Submissions Forum helper!



I was also told to put the word out that applications for the various breeding teams are still open! We have GP contract spots open for BC, LBC, RBC, and potentially MBC! If your application wasn't responded to in the last round, you can re-do your application and try again if you want. n_n You can find the applications here.

Also if you like being an eggnog artist (or are a previous eggnog artist or BC-type artist) and want something similar on a short temporary basis (GP paid), we're working on knocking out the drinking game breeding backlog. Send me a PM if you're interested with examples of your breeding work! If you haven't been a breeding artist for one of those teams but are still interested in temp work as a drinking game artist, you'll need to submit a BC application and mention that you're interested in the drinking game breedings.

T4T: In Tribute

Items

Goto News Post



"We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of Earth' to 'touch the face of God. ... Sometimes, when we reach for the stars, we fall short. But we must pick ourselves up again and press on despite the pain." -- President Ronald Reagan, 1986.

Thirty years on, we have been asked to place this item in Trash for Treasure to commemorate the lives lost in the tragic Challenger disaster, and to remind us that those who have passed before will always live on within those that remember them.

This HA background will be stocking until February 1st.
