Spring Forward - Clock Change
Just wanted to drop a quick note that the Aywas clock jumped ahead one hour today, as Daylight Saving Time in the US began at 2:00 a.m. Aywas Time.
Hope you've all had a great weekend! :3

The moment you have all been waiting for...you can now catch monsters as custom pets!
The first thing you will need to catch monsters is a Monster Certification, which acts like a skill item. When you obtain a Monster Certification, you apply it to your active pet to give that pet the skill to catch monsters as customs.
You may be well on your way to catching monsters if you have been keeping up on your museum collection of monsters (previously in the Adventure/Battledome features but ported over to the museum). You can view your collection of Ay and Ara monsters here in the museum.
When you collect one of each monster in Ay and Ara, the museum operator will give you a Monster License to use on your choice of pet. If you want to get started RIGHT NOW, or you don't want to collect monsters first, you can pick up a Monster License in the USD Shop for $10.00.
You can read about monster breeding and customs in their new Knowledge Base article. Note that we only have lines for a certain number of monsters, and no shading available, so if you want to use Recolor Potions on the monsters you capture, it would have to be the ones with source files available.
However, the userbase can alleviate the problem of having no source files by donating relines to this thread. When a reline is donated and accepted, everyone can start customizing the colors of that type of monster.
Speaking of Recolor Potions, because you'll be needing them for the monster release to customize your monsters' colors, we've decided to re-release them into the USD Shop for some pretty cheap prices. You can pick up a five pack of Recolor Potions for $8, or a ten pack for $12.

As an aside, I'm back from being without Internet for nearly three days, so look forward to some updates from me throughout the weekend! :3

Knowledge Base - Mineral Crystal
The Knowledge Base for the Mineral Crystal has been updated! Please be sure to download PSDs from the Knowledge base from this point forward - we had them on dropbox so tiers couldn't be sneaked upon (random string URLs and all that).
As well, if any artists out there want to make some SCC bases for future events, drop me a message!

Congratulations! You did it!
1,770,000,000 BP Sunk in 6 HOURS!
You unlocked all the BP Sink tiers and now have access to all the bases available for the Mineral Crystal! The new bonus SCC bases will be added to the Knowledge Base when the article is updated sometime tomorrow.
In the meantime, enjoy the bases that were unlocked and have fun coloring them! And hopefully this event has helped drain a lot of the BP out of the economy and stabilized some of the prices.
The Mineral Crystal has been put into the BP Shop for a slightly higher price. You may buy this item until April 1, in which it will be removed. The custom maker can be used indefinitely.

Billion BP Challenge
Billion BP Challenge
The March BP sink event is here! The item you see above is a custom maker for specific SCC bases. Which SCC bases are those? Well... it depends on how this event goes!
Over twenty bases were commissioned for this event. For every BP tier that's reached during the event, a new base is unlocked for the custom maker. If all twenty tiers are reached, and all twenty bases unlocked, that means that the BP sink event sunk ONE BILLION BP from the economy!
For every 3,000,000 you sink, you receive a Mineral Crystal. Keep checking back (and sinking more BP if you can, and encourage your friends to sink BP) to see what the bases look like as they're unlocked. They'll be revealed on the feature as each tier is reached!
Start Playing Now!
If the final tier is reached and one billion BP is sunk, then two new SCC bases will be added to the item - one from Wildrice and one from Kuri. We may even do a little celebration!
