Do you need some help? Enter your problem or question below and an Exhibited Guru will get back to you. If you have a serious problem, it might be best to ask a moderator instead by selecting "Mod Box" from the drop down. Remember, this isn't for reporting bugs.
It's a java chatroom hosted on different servers to our own. It's fast, instant, doesn't have constant page refreshes (thus it's easy to highlight and such), has a private messsaging system and enables you to battle and chat at the same time.
Best of all, it will be able to handle huge masses of people at once - something which our original chat couldn't do.
If the site should go down for any reason or we get masses of lag, the chat should continue to run unharmed and unaffected, so I'd recommend keeping chat tabbed if you want to just incase anything happens! If you leave the chat window open also, it should keep you logged in if you do nothing else around the site.
Have fun! (Please remember you need java enabled to use the new chatroom.)
MINOR EDIT: Backgrounds and clipons are both removable and are now in the dinosaur's "equipment" tab. Pages will also no longer automatically space out things.
You can now create trades and trade items, money and scales with other players. I quickly put this in because I know people are currently "manually" trading on the boards and some minor disagreements have happened. This should solve it! ;D
You can view the trades page from the "Bartering" area.
Hello everyone! It's the 1st of December today so I'd like to announce a few new things to you all:
- The banner image has changed from its regular stance to a wintery scene. I have been waiting for ages to put this up! :D
- There is an advent calendar that will run for the whole of this month. Login once a day and you can go claim a christmas item from there!
- Allosaurus IS circulating in the game, but it hasn't been officially "released" yet.
- There is a new monthly donation item.
- There are new club leaders today for each club.
- It's snowing!
Some winter games will come later on in the month. :)
And just a note for earlier:
I am aware we had downtime for around 3 hours or so last night. I couldn't even access the server so had to request a remote reboot. I'll be watching to see if it happens again!
Any dinosaurs that were in mixed species enclosures have now been removed from that enclosure completely, and will appear under your moving crate as "escaped". All you have to do is "recapture" them and reorganize them.
You can no longer put dinosaurs into an enclosure if it doesn't match the species currently in the enclosure (unless obviously the enclosure is empty.)
And dinosaurs can now only have the t-rex potion used on them if they're in your moving crate. :P
To keep everything weighted nicely for when I introduce herbivores, it would be best for you to move all of your dinosaurs into single-species enclosures. This means, packs of all velociraptor, all utahraptor, all deinonychus - etc. Don't mix the species.
Herbivores will be introduced WITH a huntability side to them. Your dinosaurs will be able to hunt a herd in a pack, and it's going to be unrealistic and a lot more coding if you have a tyrannosaurus rex in a pack of compys? So, start moving them to their own enclosures now, please.
When I am ready to release herbivores, all existing carnivores will start to fight each other. If you have two different species in an enclosure, that basically means they are going to keep fighting until they kill each other or you move them out. :)
Just a heads up!
As an additional note: I did say in the comments that if you couldn't afford to sort your dinosaurs into different enclosures that I would be willing to help. Send me a message - don't just abandon all your dinos if you're attached to them. :P
Edit II: this does not apply if you want to have more species of dinosaurs. Only for your existing ones, lol.
There is now a shop sales history so the notification will go there from now on instead of to your bank transactions (I know you can get swamped with this, heehee!).
Incubators now show the egg's name and ID underneath the egg picture.
Dinosaurs will now have their cause of death recorded which can be viewed on the graveyard page. The messages you receive have also been changed to reflect this -- and also, automated messages no longer come from my account. ;)
There's a back to enclosure link on dinosaur pages.
Battle points and a level up button will now appear on the quick battle sidebar.
If you search for a stud now, it will only pull studs that can breed right now (have more than 75 hunger & health, are in an enclosure and have no time left for next breeding).
There's now a back to club link on the club battle page.
I realize there's some unfinished stuff left for me to do with clubs so I'll have a tweak of them next week and finish them all up. Then, once everything is all done, I can FINALLY work on new features.
I am also waiting to hear back from one of our potential new moderators before I unleash them all on you guys. ;D
