Spring Hunt!! [Easter 2024]

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by GalacticRing

Hi all! Tomorrow marks the start of our (late) Easter event. However, before we can get into that we’d like to make a small announcement. 

From now on, we’d like to stray away from IRL religious holidays. We will still host events somewhat around these holidays however we will be avoiding directly referencing them. 

Anyways, onto the Spring Hunt event details!

Starting Tomorrow at 15:00:00 site time, we will be hosting a scavenger hunt. This will last from tomorrow (4/5) till 4/9 23:59:59 site time.

From 4/5 until 4/8 each day will have a total of 8 items to find. Of those 8, 4 will be raffle tickets for premade designs. 

Meaning this time around, premade designs will not be FCFS. These designs will be revealed on 4/10. 

You may also purchase choice boxes to obtain raffle tickets for any design you may be potentially interested in with Cloudcoins. Remember that you need to open these boxes from your inventory in order to obtain the raffle tickets!

This event will work like our previous Easter events, with items being hidden anywhere members can access. This includes non-staff owned characters.

April 2024 Newsletter (p. 2)

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by Digimon

Hi everyone! More monthly news for you all. 

RULE UPDATES:

After another long discussion with staff we have ultimately decided to undo the changes to the shape shifting trait. Hamsters are too difficult for us to work with, we hope you will forgive us. This will not happen again. 

 

Hamster passes will not be removed from the site until all of them have been used up. These still will only be able to make your character shapeshift into a hamster, and the shapeshift form will not be able to change from a hamster. You can still claim your hamster pass until 23:59:59 site time.


April Monthly Madness:

This month’s theme is Storms! Draw and/or write about your spacestation character experiencing stormy weather! 

 

The April monthly madness will last till April 30th! 

 

We will still accept Hamster related Monthly madness submissions until 4/7, you may submit to both the Hamster and Storms theme for this month.

Misc:

  • Our FAQ has been moved to a new page, located here.
  • You can now search for CBCs on site, the spreadsheet has started to become unmanageable for us and we figured it’d be easier to just allow both staff and users to search for them on the actual site itself.
  • Fetch quests have been updated
  • The Wheel has been updated
  • Characters may now have multiple subtypes, so it's now possible to have a sodacat that's both a wild cat and big cat for example (either because its a hybrid, or because of multiform)
  • redcrowz is now a full moderator!
  • We have promoted yugioh and Lobcorp to a new position of Senior Moderators. This role is functionally identical to Moderators for most purposes, but minor changes on the staff side mean you should see MYOs and redesigns be approved faster.
  • We have noticed several users posting looking for ads for staff customs in the Discord server. We would like to remind you that we have a page set up on site containing all relevant information about each staff member's customs, which is kept up to date. We would prefer it if you refer to that and contact the artist you are interested in getting a custom from directly, rather than advertising in the Discord server for it. Thank you!
  • Past event cooking/crafting/food items are currently in the process of being removed from the site. 

April 2024 Newsletter (p. 1)

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by Digimon

Hi everyone! Monthly news for you all. 

RULE UPDATES:

After a long discussion with staff we have ultimately decided that the shapeshifting trait needs adjustments. From this day forward, the trait will be renamed Hamster and characters may only shapeshift into hamsters. Any characters with the former shapeshifting trait that does not have a hamster form will be marked as illegal. Thank you! 

 

As compensation we have decided to hide a “Hamster Pass” on a character with the hamster trait (Any character with the hamster trait. This includes characters with an illegal hamster trait). You may use this “Hamster Pass” to add the Mythical Hamster trait to your character! Do not tell others where this is hidden, thank you!

EASTER EVENT:

Our easter event will be hosted on the 5th, and run until the 7th! More about this will be posted in it’s own separate newsletter on the 4th :]

April Monthly Madness:

This month’s theme is Hamster! Draw and/or write about your spacestation character Hamster! What does this mean? You decide. 

The April monthly madness will last till April 30th!

Misc:

Reminders:

  • Give our staff team at least 48 hours to answer any questions you have. If we put a discussing emoji on your question/design check/etc. do not try to guess why we’ve done so. It clogs the chat and makes it much harder for us to answer other questions in the chats. 
  • Gift art counts as any art you’ve made of someone else’s character as long as no currency was exchanged for it. This includes cloudcoins. Art made for others as a part of item trades, art trades, etc. all count as gift art. 
  • Multi-accounting on the site is strictly forbidden and will result in a ban once we catch you doing so.

Peace and Love Newsletter

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by Digimon

PEACE AND LOVE NEWSLETTER:

PLEASE READ THIS NEWSLETTER IN FULL. MOST THINGS SHOULD BE ANSWERED IN THIS. IF YOU ASK SOMETHING THAT IS ANSWERED ON THIS NEWSLETTER WE WILL REDIRECT YOU TO THIS AGAIN.

 

This is a single-part lore event! We wanted to celebrate Valentine's Day this year with a special event! This will be similar to Over the Clouds, but not nearly to the same scale!

This event starts today, 2/7, and ends in two weeks (+ one day), on 2/22.

This event has a few different parts to it, and this newsletter goes over it.

An Important Reminder:


We do not tolerate any form of cheating in our events. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Multiaccounting, including getting friends to sign up just to send you items
  • Exploits that are discovered that are not promptly reported, and are instead used to get a large quantity of items
    • You are also disallowed from telling other people about exploits that you find, other than staff when you report it
    • If you find an exploit by mistake, you will not be punished so long as you let us know immediately
  • Hacking the website, or other people's accounts

If you cheat in these ways, then we will find out. We do not tolerate it whatsoever, as it gives users an advantage over others. This includes getting a mass amounts of MYOs to use to make characters, as well as trading illegitimate items for art and characters.

If we catch you cheating, then you will be given a full-site ban, the length of which varying depending on the severity of the offense.

We did not want to take this step, but the amount of this we had in the last event made it so we had to go through with this.

Dialogue Event:


The dialogue event can be read here, and it has branching paths! You can go through it multiple times to get all three different stories!

The dialogue event was written by GalacticRing!

DIV.gif

Foraging:

There are two locations to forage during this event!

Foraging may drop:
  • Crafting Materials
  • Cooking Items
  • Misc Items
  • Currency

DIV.gif
Crafting:

Like before, foraging will drop crafting materials!

Crafting works the same as previous events. You will need to read the dialogue event to unlock the recipes.

Exploring (Encounters):

Like last time, encounters are making a return! You have two locations to choose from, with unique encounters in each area!

With exploring, you will have a variety of encounters from the perspective of the NPCs during the lore event, with the chance to gain items!

DIV.gif

Status Effects:

Through prompts, your characters can gain a status effect! This is the Love Sick status effect, with the severe version being Heartbroken!

In this event, Broken Bones and Wound also makes a comeback and has a chance to appear from prompts!

We have also updated Lucky: it only is in effect for a total of 3 prompts before it goes away!

DIV.gif

Art Prompts:

We will have two art prompts with each part of the event, able to be completed at any time until the event ends, but the story prompts MUST be completed in order! Non-story event prompts rewards will be rolled on characters, so any rewards will go to them instead of your inventory! From there you can transfer the items out of your character's inventory into yours.

For your character to get rewards you must select them as the "focus character"! You can also only submit prompts that include your own characters. If you were to do an event prompt that includes two of your own characters, and one of another member's for example, you'd be able to submit the prompt for your two characters, and the other member would need to submit to it with their character as well.

FEBRUARY 2024 NEWSLETTER

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by GalacticRing

Hi everyone! Monthly news for you all. 

Rule Updates/Reminders:

Rule Updates:

    • You must now link the parents of your self breeds in the comments section of the submission, just listing the masterlist number will not work and your submission will be sent back if you do not do so. 
    • Cirros must have the long, sloped muzzle unless you have the breed specific body trait. However the design must overall look like the breed you’re saying it is. We will not allow the trait to only be used for the muzzle of the stated breed, you must incorporate the breeds anatomy as well (for example, a german shepard must have a sloped back, a corgi must have short legs, just generally it needs to look like the dog breed you assign them.)
    • You may now only void characters if you have permission from the original designer.

Reminders:

    • Give our staff team at least 48 hours to answer any questions you have. If we put a discussing emoji on your question/design check/etc. do not try to guess why we’ve done so. It clogs the chat and makes it much harder for us to answer other questions in the chats. 
    • Gift art counts as any art you’ve made of someone elses character as long as no currency was exchanged for it. This includes cloudcoins. Art made for others as a part of item trades, art trades, etc. all count as gift art. 
    • Multi-accounting on the site is strictly forbidden and will result in a ban once we catch you doing so.

February Monthly Uncommon Myo Raffles:

Uncommon MYO Raffle to Pays are up (belatedly)! Go to the “Raffles” page (under the browse dropdown on the navbar), click the raffle you’re interested in joining, and click the self enter button! 

Each MYO is 2,000 cloudcoins if you win!
Please remember to have the cloudcoins before entering! If we are forced to reroll you because you did not read this, you will be getting a strike. Thank you.

You will be able to self enter until 2/3 23:59:59 site time, and the raffles will be rolled on 2/4!

NEW STAFF MEMBERS:

With the staff applications closing, we would like to welcome our newest members of staff!

Please welcome sugarsprink, winterbunz, slug, and TipsyBearTender as our newest helpers!

We would like to thank everyone for their interest in the applications!

Valentines Event:

We will be having a small lore event for Valentine's day! This will not be at nearly the scale of Over the Clouds, but is just meant for fun!

This event will run from February 7th to February 21st!

FEBRUARY BREEDING + Breeding updates:

The raffle to pay form was posted in the Discord server, but here is the link again for anyone who is not present in the server!

Link

This will close at 3 pm site time, be rolled at 3:10, and FCFS slots will open at 3:30 as a sales post! Because it is February, these are allowed to be poly batches, but are not required to be!

Additionally, crossbreeding Space Station species is now allowed, but only for staff breedings! If you decide to have a batch with multiple Space Station species present, the batch will be a mixture of the species, though each kitten/puppy will belong to a singular species!

Valentines Mystery Adopts:

We will have mystery adopts going up on the 13th as a raffle to pay! Winners will be rolled and designs revealed on the 14th! These will be $30 each!

The February monthly madness will last till February 29th!

MARCH GACHA:

On March 15th we will be hosting a gacha! Gacha prices are being raised to $20 per slot, and designs will include all four Space Station species.

We will also be hosting a gacha for pre-rolled randomised MYO slots with pre-determined color palettes! These will be sold for Cloud Coins.

More information on both of these will be revealed in the March newsletter! Stay tuned.

MISC:

  • Long Fur Hair [SDC] has been added as a trait for Sodacats! From now on, Fur Hair [SDC] is for hair that ends above the chin, and Long Fur Hair [SDC} is for anything longer. We are still going through cats on the masterlist to update their traits accordingly, so hold tight!

Thank you all for reading!
