Both December and January have been very busy months, but with the big changes we've done so far we've knocked quite a lot off our to-do list! Let us know below what you think about all the updates and changes, and if you have any questions!
Upcoming Features and Progress
There are a bunch of things we are still working on and haven't yet been released. Look forward to the following things being fixed/added soon!
- We're still trying to get a chance to finish the tally NPC profile images. we're hoping those will be done by the end of this month.
- We are still working on clarifying traits in a custom trait information sheet. This sheet has a list of what is and is not allowed for traits when editing or adjusting them, or even making any custom.
- More upcoming background fixes.
- Two new cove locations to be added!
- Expanded dock information to art and tooltips on PT calculation that summarizes it better.
- Updating the frames on the homepage to be more personalized for each section.
New Layouts and formatting
As you may have noticed, much of the site's layout has changed recently. We've been very hard at work trying to make the site look nice, easier to access, and more pleasant to the eyes.
The first immediate change you'll notice we made was to the font. We are now using a nicer font! Yay!
The second immediate change you might notice is to the navigation bar. We changed the lists to be more cohesive and less like the traditional LK order. We also changed the colors on the dropdown lists and separated things into sections to make them easier to find what you're looking for. Additionally, we added more links to things users needed to access often, or things users had trouble getting to. Hopefully this format makes it easier to access things! Let us know if there's anything you think should be added!
The third change you might notice is the homepage, which you can see right as you open the site or by clicking the name of the site in the top left. When logged out, you can now see a random image that has been submitted by users to be viewed there! We don't accept all images to be on the homepage, but if you would like your image posted there, reach out to us and we can add it to appear there! Images we accept must be colored and cannot have too messy of linework, and must be of a good quality. Images we really like we might even reach out to you for permission to add! The text under the image is also updated to be nicer and include lore.
Secondarily, when you are logged in, the homepage looks much cleaner! It lets you know when there's new events going on, a new changelog, and gives you an easy link and reminder about daily and weekly activities like your daily reward, Slime Expeditions, and Stark! Be sure to check the bulletin for current events, mentions about Pandora's Box, and more! There is also an area for the most recent submitted art, characters, and even a little tip area which has a random fact, tip, or quote whenever the page loads!
Another change to layouts is that our site guide has been formatted to be nicer on the eyes. The chart for item calculations for den rank-ups is also easier to follow. And the prompt pages now have a white background to be easier to see the text. But most importantly, the Compendium, previously the encyclopedia, has been reformatted to be easier to find information on traits and items, adding a few links to things that were harder to find previously, and changing a couple things that were unneeded.
New Markings and Recipes, Boost Updates
We added three new markings onto the site; Fizz, Ziggy, and Blush. Fizz is a rare seasonal marking, only available during spring and summer, while the other two are available year round. Ziggy is also rare while Blush is uncommon.
We also added some new unique holiday markings and a trait. Golemize is a summer seasonal unique trait, acting somewhat like Zombify but changing traits or parts of the body to be turned to mineral versions. Raptor Claws is a new boss unique bone trait that makes a claw larger. The three new unique Holiday markings are Pour, Patchwork, and Mummified. Pour is available in summer, Mummified in fall, and Patchwork in winter.
Two new recipes were added for Magic Coal, one allowing you to use it to craft a Naughty or Nice Scroll, and the other allowing you to craft unique equipment that has Naughty or Nice enchanted on it.
Lastly, two boosts have gotten effect updates. You Shall Not Pass now increases all passing trait chances by the tier the boost is at. It still has its old effect as well though, so while it might randomly block some traits, the ones it doesn't block have an increased chance of passing up to 10x! The other boost that got an effect change was Sloth, which now no longer lowers luck and also both can increase dungeon rewards and prevent a spirit from moving back a floor.However it still has the item restriction, this item restriction can't effect dungeon loot as it's rolled differently.
Thanks to Sehanbrel, backgrounds are getting a paintover to make them higher quality and more cohesive. We ask that you please swap out backgrounds as they are changed for the new ones on your designs, and will require use of the new backgrounds from now on. We will not force you to change your spirit's import to a new background unless you change their design, but it would be nice if you do.
Updated backgrounds so far are the three free backgrounds for both Tallies and Kiji, the Unicorn, Pegasus, Krampus, and Dullahan backgrounds, and the 4 Horsemen, Kelpie, Nightmare, Santa, and Rudolph. We are currently working on rebirth backgrounds.
Otherwise, we also added icons to the currency, so they look a little nicer in your bank and in the shops!
updates to pages, guides, and submissions
With all the changes and updates recently, we have added more guides, adjusted information, and updated how things worked for submissions.
Firstly, the FAQ has been updated so it had all the current information. Users are also now able to change the prompt and gallery when editing their gallery submission.
Secondly, a big one! Prompt submission are no longer allowed to use links to off-site images. This is because the character submission history is not showing everything, so it is hard for us to track images from off-site. From now on, all images must be posted to the site galleries before submitting to prompts. There is more information on this in the Site Guide. With this change we have removed the submission history link from the character's sidebar, however the page does still exist and can be found with a direct link.
Another big update is the ability to make submission drafts. When you go to submit a request or prompt submission, you can now save it as a draft to submit later. Likewise, admins now have the option to return a submission or request back to draft status if it is missing any items or information, instead of rejecting it outright and forcing the player to resubmit! Admins are also able to leave notes or comments on submissions they cancel! This will make it easier for many players and admins.
Lastly we wanted to mention that we added three new pages to the site. Firstly is a Request Guide which will help explain the things you can do in requests, and even some not as apparent options. Secondly is a Maxed Out Guide, which will help those with maxed out characters figure out what they can do from this point on with them. Lastly is a Support Us page, to make things easier for people who want to purchase credits or even just help support the site. Details are on the linked pages above.
Slight Cove update
We added a limited item cove shop to the Floating Islands, and thus moved Daythe, who was in the Fairy Forest, up there. Additionally, we moved Vayle who was in Unicorn Cove, to the Fairy Forest, and replaced him with Faet and Orville. We will be updating cove further when we add the two new planned locations, so look forward to that!
