Amazon Payments removed

Site Update

Goto News Post

This is a notice that we have removed the Amazon Payments option to purchase GP and USD Items. They have decided to suspend our new account with the money in it. Suffice to say, I am not impressed with this action.

It may return if they reverse the suspension, but in the end I feel like Aywas has been treated much better by PayPal the last six years.

UPDATE: Amazon has reinstated the account and explained it was a typical account review suspension due to high volume.

Pride Month - The End

Site Update

Goto News Post

Pride Month on Aywas is coming to an end with yet another gorgeous custom-making item!

On July 1st (that's tomorrow), pick up the Pride Starstone from the Advent Calendar to submit your own Pride Lunaris. You can also pick up additional ones, if desired, in the USD Shop for $5.00 each.

We have a number of different premade colorations for you to use, or you can download the base and color your own.

The Pride Starstone will have its power from now until July 15th. This is a reminder that LGBT Pride doesn't end on June 30th, it continues forever ;)

A couple of extra items have been tossed into the Event Shop for mochi packets. Feel free to pick them up if you want! The Event Shop will be clearing its stock on July 3 11:59 PM permanently.

You can start opening Mochi Packets and Pride Stickers now! Of course, you can also use the Mochi Packets as a currency in the event shop, but it's up to you what you want to do.

Sevryns are hatching just in time to celebrate the end of Pride Month! You can collect Sevryn Eggs in the Enchanted Forest, Wasteland, Seaside, and Grassland (they're called Rainbow Eggs and Natural Eggs). Hatch these eggs to get Sevryn site pets.

You can exchange site pet Sevryns for custom making items at the Sevryn Nest if you'd rather make customs!

The timer displays which custom item is available for trade-in at the moment. It changes every two hours, and picks at random from metal, bronze, blue, and gold.

Auction Link

Last call for the Pride Xaoc blind auction! If you have any bids to get in, be sure to follow the instructions and submit your bid before July 1st rolls around.

Also remember to submit your Pride Dragons by 11:59 PM on July 1st, and claim your Pride Teos by July 15th!

We hope you've enjoyed Pride Month on Aywas! Remember, Pride isn't just one month. Even with adversity facing you, love and cherish yourself, and remember that all of us here do ♥

And don't forget the advent calendar tomorrow!

Site Update

Goto News Post

If you remember back when we hired our new April programmer, we had first embarked on the task of updating the deprecating Amazon payment scripts with our main programmer. Essentially, Amazon decided to completely get rid of their old payment system and move to a new one, which is fairly normal for payment processors (you saw it happen with Google Wallet, for instance).

Unfortunately it seemed like we hit EVERY SINGLE snag along the way. Feedback from our main programmer indicated that the new Amazon payment system was very poorly documented, confusing to implement, and their support team wasn't exactly much help with solving problems.

It has seriously taken some three months to get to this point... but... we have FINALLY gotten this finished!

Apologies, as you may have noticed that the original Amazon method of purchasing (the previous one) died a couple of days ago. They actually canceled it on June 1 but let us process payments a bit longer because we were having so much trouble getting the new one implemented. But now it works with the new system, "Pay With Amazon."

To celebrate finally getting over this ridiculously difficult hurdle, let's see what we have!

Blue Species Crystal
This item will allow you to upload a 50% edited SCC pet (from any species that has been founded). Please put a link to the Silver Database Entry for the species when you submit a pet with this item within the comments. Obviously, you need to either own the species, or have bought a PSD use.

The staff are in the process of discussing raising the breeding limit for SCCs up to 50% difference. We will let you know what our decision is when we come to a consensus. If you would like to share your feedback about raising the limit, please do so in the comments.

For every $5 you spend until the 26th at 11:59 PM, you will get a Mystery Box Ticket. The Mystery Box isn't funding anything new, but it feels great celebrating for getting over a three month programming hurdle. It'll be very useful for paying all of these recent artist raises, though!

These are automatic for GP purchases, but if you buy USD Items, pm me with the total amount spent and what you got, and I'll send you the tickets.

Now that the Amazon hurdle is out of the way, these little guys can finally get some programming time! We're hoping to have them ready soon. It's been hard trying to get to them, but at least we don't have that huge payment coding issue in the way anymore.

They actually have a small "quest" feature associated with them, and we hope that you find it enjoyable. It will make creating custom Sevryns a little more interesting than the average pet species.

This odd looking creature will be getting its own feature soon, too...

Pride - Update 3!

Site Update

Goto News Post

"Hey, hey! Look over here! I got in some more stuff for you to buy! but this time, I'm only taking mochi, because those are so, so tasty..."

The final round's currency is the Pride Mochi Packet! You can use these items to trade in for Event Shop content, or you can save them until after the event and open them into little Mochis (collectibles). Your choice!

This round, you can get a trunk of many different colored wings to celebrate your favorite identity.

There's also a box of sparkles that'll give you lots of sparkly backgrounds for your HA!

There's a lot of great items in the shop this time, so why not go take a peek?

Be sure to check out all the great pets - and some of them have very educational descriptions that you can check out in the Aywapedia.

Were you bummed to only have two Pride Candles? The Pride Candle is hanging out in the USD Shop for $5.00 so you can collect any other Teos you happen to desire. It'll leave the shop on the 1st, so act fast if you want one.

Who's excited for the 30th, the finale of the event? Get ready to open sticker packets and mochi boxes, and some other cool stuff for the final part of Pride Month!
