"Hey! Hey! Did you see it?" Miksa asks you excitedly as Tech seems preoccupied with a gadget in his hands. "It's here again! The Lunar Meteor! You know what that means, right? There's new pets to befriend!" she continued on before showing you photos of a few pets that you haven't seen before.

"Oh, but you should be careful. There's always been a few... not-so-nice pets, but there appears to be monsters wandering around this year. You can try to capture those if you really want to, but please be careful!" As she finished her warning, she produced a couple more photos.

"We've already done a good bit of exploring and found some pretty neat things. Money is getting a little tight though, so to fund our future expeditions, we've opened up a Seasonal Shop! Every little bit counts!"

Once Miksa finished speaking, Tech gave her arm a poke before showing her what he had been working on. "According to Tech's device, the Lunar Meteor will be gone after 11:59 PM AST on August 31st. Well, then that'll be when we close up shop too!"

With that said, Tech nodded and grinned before heading toward the shopping district. Miksa, on the other hand, seemed to be heading toward the meteor once more. If you're ready to explore, you should follow her!

bulletpoint.png All applications must be PM'd to Mayday Marie (#11) with the following subject line: Black Friday 2020 - [email protected] - please replace the e-mail with your PayPal address.
bulletpoint.png You must PM Mayday Marie (#11) with a sketch for for approval! If you send her a finished product without doing this first, we do not have to accept it. If you make more sets than the ones we approve you to do, we do not have to accept them.

bulletpoint.png All sets should be between 50% - 75%. If your set is spectacular, we will accept less edits.
bulletpoint.png We are allowing very few silvers! We will not be accepting a dozen Teos that only have the tails left.

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!

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!
