Exhibited Press

Upcoming comic!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 11th Oct 2011
Alongside the new layout (we're so close it hurts ;0;) we're going to start having an official Exhibited comic! This will hopefully bring some weekly laughs (smiles at least!) because everyone needs some comedy!

Because I'm so impatient (and excited), I figured I'd show you guys sneak previews of the upcoming characters. :D

Click any image below to get the fullsize image.


Khan, our resident male Velociraptor. Don't let the adorable fluff fool you - he'd be quick to bite your face off!


Nemi, a female Nemicolopterus. Whilst not a species native to Exhibited (yet), she's sure to entertain! Found frequently on Jeff's horns, and hunting out shiny things.


Willow, a female Allosaurus. Pretty and mysterious, she's the most dangerous out of the bunch!


Jeff, a male Torosaurus. Contrary to the rep Torosaurs usually get, he's the smartest for sure! If only he cared...

There will be one more side character who will appear every so often, but we'll keep him a secret for now. 8D

Right now we're needing a name for the comic, so post any and all suggestions you have here!
First of the Month!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 1st Oct 2011
Happy October!

For the first of the month, we have a new donation item - the Devil Horns!

Devil Horns

Devil Horns will morph your dinosaur into our newest species - the Carnotaurus!




Carnotaurus comes to us with a Halloween theme in mind and has lots of spooky, awesome markings. ;D

If you can't donate, then the over 13s chat will be having a quiz where you can win yourself a couple tonight at 1pm EX time. The under 13s will have a quiz too, with the time and date to come!

In other news I was planning on getting the new layout in by now but it didn't happen sadly - however I'm working every day and hoping to get this in for this month. If that doesn't happen don't fret - I've coded the halloween events on both servers just incase.

We'll be starting our Halloween games on the 17th - 5 of them in total!

Oh, I just love October!
Bottom of Waterfall
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 16th Sep 2011
So, I've been working flat out on Exhibited lately, and I just want to say that the new layout is so awesome, current EX feels very plain and amateur by comparison. It's getting so close and I'm so excited!! I'll be launching new EX with new features too, so stay on the lookout. At this moment in time I don't need any regular testers besides mods (and gurus). :)

Also!

We have a new background - the bottom of the waterfall background! We already had a background featuring the top of one, so it made sense that we get to put our dinos at the bottom too! It's restocking in the background store right now.

Also, could all EX Gurus please go to the Guru Board. Thanks!

I also finished something else today, something that was suggested by Clara and which I'm particularly in love with!

Shelf

Right now, I'm about 70% finished of the new layout and just got done with battles, trials and items. When I'm 100% done, I will be requesting for testers on the boards, and picking some from there, so keep your eyes peeled!
Happy Birthday Rykos!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 8th Sep 2011
It's our favorite server ninja's birthday today! In order to celebrate, considering all the wonderful work Rykos does for us, we have a new WWRD (What Would Rykos Do?) plushie stocking in the stores today.



On other notes, some markings have been redone. I'll be uploading them at the weekend. :)
1st of the month!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 1st Sep 2011
It's the 1st of the month! Which means... A new monthly donation item!

Rainbow DNA Modifier

The Rainbow DNA Modifier will let you choose which marking type you want your dinosaur to be. Not heavy/common etc, but the pattern itself - so leopard, blanket, etc. You can only change to a marking that exists for that species though, of course!

I also have individual DNA modifiers that I'll release in the scale shop at one point, too.

Regarding other updates:

All updates and work is being done on the other server for EX at the moment, which is why there's a slight lack here. Among them are:

* Trials are being revamped to be more seperated. You'll have to register a dinosaur for one trial type and trialling should be easier now.
* Racing trials will allow you to place bets on them.
* Hunting trials will no longer be player-createable.
* Agility will have different course types unlockable per dinosaur once they've been entered in enough trials.
* Conformation has a chance to win double points with a second first place, due to all species having seperate 1st-10th places.
* There will be a new trial-type; Strength Pulling, specifically for the larger dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex. Coincidentally, they are banned from Agility (for obvious reasons!!)
* Battle moves now have to be learned through levelling up, rather than by just appearing when you have the right strength.
* Battles now have 2 healing moves, and 3 dodge moves that have the chance to boost stats. They'll only boost stats 1 time during the battle each though to avoid mass-spamming. ;D

There are tons more also, but those are what I've been working at the moment. I'm trying to hurry everything up because the new EX is really just so awesome and I want you guys to see it. @.@;

Also, we have a third map incoming. Preview here:

Map Preview

And finally, we have a new NPC coming with the new layout. Well, we actually have several, but she is the one I'm most excited about:

New NPC

Her name is Vadoma.

Thanks for being awesome, EX!!
Progress & Achievements
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 21st Aug 2011
I'm making some steady progress on EX version II and just thought I'd give you all an update.

The vast majority of the site is done, but some of the bigger features (battle revamp, breeding caps, trial revamp, etc) need some hefty work so those are going to be what slows me down. But rest assured they will be worth the wait. :)

Once I have more of those finished I'll be seeking testers.

For now, here's a preview of how user shops now look:



As a note the boards will be switching once again from BBCode back onto HTML. I personally detest BBCode and think HTML is much easier and has much more customization. We'll still have the buttons to slip BBCode (or rather HTML now!) into the textbox though, and I'll try to mass-convert most of the bbcode tags into HTML when we swap over to the new layout. :)

ALSO:

I'm going to be adding in a new achievement system, to replace trophies! All the old trophies will be converted into achievements (so nope, you won't lose any!) and we'll have bunches and bunches more. From the usual things (having x amount of money) to silly things (like compressing 100 sausages). I want to use this news post as an opportunity for you to post any achievement suggestions you have here, along with names for them. :)

For example, our 100k EXD trophy will be called "Saving for a Rainy Day" on the achievement system, and things like that. Really looking forward to hearing some suggestions!

And finally, on the 13+ boards I posted a suggestion topic about trials. I need you guys to reply and share ideas with me so I can finalize what to do about them and get them done.

PHEW.
Contest!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 20th Aug 2011
PHEW! We had so many contest entries this time that it took me *forever* to pick the winners and runners up! There were bunches of great quality entries which made it very difficult, but thank you to everyone for entering! You all have the appropriate trophies.

The winner of the writing contest is:
Nemy! (#10830) with their entry:

"A click came in moments before,
A page in the game it asked for.
But the server said no
Through the Error Dino,
And as for the page, four-oh-four."

They win 30 scales and a Rhino Toy! :)

The three runners up are:

rowan-the velociraptor master (#6974) with their entry:
"It seems you've encountered an error,
An unfortunate dinosaur terror.
Since things don't look pretty,
You best contact Kitty,
'Cause these sort of things don't scare her!"

Paya (#2473) with their entry:
"You may think error pages weak,
But mass extinctions really stink.
Just because a thing is past
Doesn't mean it cannot last.

Dinosaurs and internet
On Exhibited have met,
Defying time and nature's law,
But neither comes without a flaw.

Like dinos in Jurassic mist,
Error pages must exist.
Otherwise we'd never guess
Truth from fiction; what a mess!"

and Daski (#1155) with their entry:
"You wander about,
without a care or a doubt.
You click a link,
but it's not what you think.
You spy a big Error!
Looking ever so clever.
Go back to where you were,
for wherever it was is better than here!"

They win 10 scales each!


And now for the art winners.....

This one was especially tough. @.@;; However, we have a winner, and it's:

Bob (#643) with their entry:


They win 30 scales and a Rhino Toy!

As a moderator won this time, I decided to give each art runner up a rhino toy too, and also every person who submitted an art entry a scale.

The following runners up each won 10 scales (and a Rhino toy):

Pideaux (#8001) with their entry:


Ihea (#10051) with their entry:


Jinx (#441) with their entry:


Thanks everyone! What a great contest this was! So much talent. :D
Contest
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 15th Aug 2011
I took a while getting all the entries up, so to avoid confusion, I'm extending the closing dates for both contests to be the 20th August 2011. If you had any ideas or anything, get finishing them and send them across. :D
New month~
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 1st Aug 2011
A new month, a new donation item.

This month is the Super Grain!:
Super Grain

This will raise all herbivores in your herd by one grade each, not including A+ herbies.

You'll notice it costs $40 to get this one free this month, but that's because I want it to be rarer. It won't be going into the scale shop either, so this is your one chance. :O~

At some point this evening I will release six new herbivores for you guys too! I figure that while I'm working on the new layout I can still release species and items to you!

Six new herbivores, no museum entries yet.


Euoplocephalus, Fabrosaurus & Enigmosaurus.

aaaand


Gravitholus, Edmontosaurus & Geranosaurus.
