Small updates
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 23rd Jun 2010
I've finished the hall of fame. My other "big" jobs left to do are gallery, search, chat and moderator tools. Everything else are smaller quick-fix jobs. :)

We also have a neuquenraptor baby:



Annnnnd I'm getting the shopkeepers revamped. Aphrodite is ready. Let me know what you think.

Edit: Also, check out the boards! :)
Games
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 14th Jun 2010
All the games should now be available again (flash and non-flash ones, including Dinosaur Dig) and you can access them either by going to the map or clicking the "games" button on the menu. (This is excluding lottery for the time being.)

All the trophy images have been revamped into a new style as well and I've cleared everyone's trophies. If you had any trophies before it should be relatively easy to get them back (money ones especially, just move some money around in your account and they'll slap back into life!).

You should also be able to unfreeze your account again. Sorry, I didn't realize it wasn't working.

I'm currently working on trials right now and once they're done I'll release them once again. I have a re-opening date in mind right now but I won't tell you what it is incase I don't make it - but let's just say it's soon. ;)
Features
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 8th Jun 2010
I've unlocked a few features for you guys because I got some work done today with crons. :)

Dinos will now start getting hungry and lose health etc. The stores are open for you to buy food and health items and the fish store is also open too - though fish won't get hungry or breed. You should be able to battle now.

Dinos will not age and your upgrade will not decrease as this is still my rebuilding period and I need you guys to work to find these bugs for me (if any).

Messages are also available again and the bank is available too. Breeding *should* work but I wouldn't recommend it as your dinos will not age, and babies will be stuck as eggs until aging is reset.

The shops are also restocking now and whereas you can take errands, I wouldn't bother as only 3 shops are open and you might get stuck needing to deliver an errand to one of the closed shops.

LEt me know if I missed anything and please report any bugs asap. :)

I'll start releasing more as I get more done!

Babies seem to be popping up all over Exhibited lately.. :)

Whoever replies here first with what dino species the following baby is will win themselves a scale:

Bambiraptor baby

Images are back..

And the Dilophosaurus is available. :D

Dilophosaurus
Speed & pages?
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 26th May 2010
So there was a teeny tiny bit of downtime happening yesterday as I switched hosts. Robyn, the owner of Alacrity, kindly offered to share her hosting with me while EX gets back on its feet and I took her up on the offer. :) It's a dedicated server so you should notice that pages move lightening fast!

The coding that I use for the recoloring images isn't configured on the new server, so we're just waiting for that to be re-installed by the management team. So for the time being, dinosaur images are down whilst this gets rectified.

Along with the move I've finished off the scale page (you can view this now) and also redone friends (which you can't view yet). I'm hoping to finish off the enclosure accessories and equippable items store tonight before I go to bed, too. :D

Yay for updates!
Two Dinosaurs & Moods??
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 25th May 2010
So there's two new dinosaur images available right now - the Eoraptor and the Microraptor:

Eoraptor
Microraptor

This means there's only the Dilophosaurus to come - but that will be very soon, too, as I've already seen the preview for it. ;)

But oh, what's this?

There's also now a new "mood" setting in your account settings!

Basics can pick from a drop-down list of moods to describe how they're feeling whilst upgrades can enter their own little message. Your mood will appear on your farm, the members online list, on friends pages and also on the boards. It's a nice little way to tell the world how you're doing. :)
Donations, Messages and Shops... Oh my!
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 19th May 2010
I have finished off messages, and the following features are now available:

- Messaging
- Smilies in messages
- Message folders for upgrades (being able to sort your messages into different folders)
- A sentbox, so you can keep tabs on messages you've sent

I have also:
- Finished off the food, health and collectable stores
- Redone the donation system so that it's a lot more concise, informative and has more things to it.

I've set scale purchases to be in bundles now, starting at 5 scales ($2.50) all the way up to 100 scales ($50). There's also a little window to the side to show the top ten recent donators, and a small thank you message there as well. After all, donations keep the site going and without them, Exhibited wouldn't be here today. :)

You can view the donation page now. Lend me your thoughts on it?
New Layout, New Images, New Everything
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 11th May 2010
So, as everyone can see, we have a pretty snazzy new layout up right now. x3 This is the new, permenant one that won't be shifting for a good long while.

My plans for it are:
- Slip a login box at the top where your user info is, if you're not logged in. Upon logging in, this will not redirect you so you don't have to go back a page. :)
- Add more things in the little sidebars, including competitions and player advertisements in a rotating system.
- Tweak every single page to make sure they look their best.
- Potentially change the time function so it updates live without having to refresh the page. We'll see.

You'll notice that if you're not logged in you'll be able to see a lot of pages. This is because I have removed the guest account feature and have decided to, instead, open up more pages so that the search engines like Exhibited a bit more, and you can take a browse around the site before you join. This also frees up account 29. ;)

The utahraptor and megaraptor images are also now available on your dinosaurs so if you have any utahs or megas, their recolor picture will start working now. There is also a baby buitreraptor and sinornithosaurus, but I'm not going to release these for a little while yet. Believe me when I tell you that they're CUTE, though!

I'm also probably going to finish off shops and such and then open all of the site again (not registrations, just so you can explore and go to the map and stuff). If you guys could go and tell me what pages work and which don't, that will be helpful, and I can probably get things done a lot quicker then.

I'll let you know when I open pages again. :)
