  1. We are kicking off the new year with a highly targeted ad campaign to revive TGL by acquiring new customers and sellers within the gaming community. This campaign is vital to ensure browser game owners and freelancers alike have access to an active community within a very niche category. We have selected FurAffinity as our primary advertising outlet with the intention to run an Adwords campaign at the conclusion of the FA ads depending on performance. To make this happen, we are asking game owners, artists, developers, and loyal pet game players to support this endeavour by donating to o

  2. I can’t wait to contribute to this! It’s so nice to see TGL getting some exposure. I know without these forums I would not have found freelancers to make my game possible. Celestial Equine will be running its own fundraiser to donate to this cause - woohoo! I will post pictures of our fundrainer companions soon. EDIT - our fundraiser is live! https://celestialequine.com/creditstore?section=4&spotlightID=26

  3. Hello Everyone! Wanted to take a moment and let everyone in the virtual pet community know that the virtual pet site Sensipets is coming back to a browser near you! We are currently in our Alpha stage and are taking a limited amount of users to try out the website. To give you a little intro into who we are: we are a virtual pet site that will have an emphasis on community and education.

  5. As @crotanite said, don't fear "filling up the database", it's meant for storing and retrieving data quickly. I was doing some recent work for @Vix and on my local computer, their admin panel for "inventory" would time out on my computer after 30+ seconds of running. I then made a single index and it came back instantly. There is so much you can do with it. I've had to deal with millions+ rows per day in a database (with weekly/daily reporting [think point of sale data]) so feel free to ask any performance related questions! I love to help!

  6. 1. A database table can handle millions of rows easily. 2. Proper indexing will also help any potential slow down when fetching data. I will also add on, that if you are the developer, you can just... not allow a user to have 50k pets If there is a worry about table size, you could just limit the max number of pets a user can have.

  9. As Faenaria's pet system is largely based on being able to create your own custom designs, we are putting into place another way to obtain pets. "Shop pets" will be premade designs, available for purchase from, you guessed it, pet shops! While our wonderful programmer, Indy, gets to work on the code, the art team has been working on the initial designs that will be released when the feature launches. Here's a preview of some of those designs!

  10. I use multiply for shadows and then overlay or sometimes screen or luminosity (depending on the effect I want) for highlights. Ultimately, there isn't a right or wrong way of shading - it's all purely objective imo.

  12. SAI is my primary drawing program and PS Elements is my secondary, But when it comes to shading I tend to use the same techniques. I use several layers for different reasons, First I start out with the base flat colors, then use darker tones of those flat colors on a different layer, then do a layer of lighter colors. Then I move onto using a black color but with the 'overlay' layer setting as my main shading. I'm told to never use black in shading, but for me it tends to look really nice when used under Overlay. From there I use another overlay layer for light, and mess around with other la

  13. I've been working directly with Celestial Equine (CE) for a few weeks now and thought I should share my thoughts. So far, it's been a really fantastic experience. The pay structure is easy to understand and forward. The community has been very warm and welcoming (and understanding while I learn the backend systems haha). The owner, Mae, has been incredibly kind, forward-thinking, and genuinely seems to care about her game, community, and the people who work within it. I work most directly with the community itself and Ell. There's a heavy focus on self-care while also maintaining producti

  18. 4dopt Project Update Many things have been added since the last update. New Default Layout The default layout has been updated to be easier on the eyes and a lot of minor UI changes have been added to help both visually impaired users and users on mobile devices. Color Transforms/Accessories - Markings and accessories can now be added with items. Item creators can set their items to either private or public access for other artists. Species creators can set any item that belongs to them or is public artist access. Players will be given access t

  19. http://www.icepets.com/images/news/Valentines-1.gif The spirit of Amourok is in the air! Terrafrostians may have noticed an abundance of Ancient and Mythical Pets working together to prepare for the upcoming festivities. What better alliance could be found than in the wisdom of the Ancients and the whimsical nature of the Mythicals? Zeiss the Ancient Dabu, along with their dear friend Xaric the Mythical Novyn, have agreed that Amourok will be done a little differently this year. Instead of a battle between two opposing teams, it will be a celebration of peace and acceptance in spite of di

  20. Are the stats static (i.e. you will only have a max of 5-10 different ones)? CREATE TABLE pets ( `id` BIGINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT , `user_id` BIGINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL , `species_id` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL , `name` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL , `strength` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL , `intelligence` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL ) Something like the above should be sufficient. If there are going to be more dynamic ones (or ones that only take place in certain situations), then you may want to make a 1:many table but I won't go there for now because this will provide your most

  22. I don't see myself going back to VPL. It's hard to trust that it won't go down again. I'm also not a fan of what Silver-Brick went through (I'm a Mysidia Adoptables forum member and saw what was posted there), taking advantage of a kid like that. I'm grateful to the leader and mods here for keeping the community together and will stick by this one.

  23. "Guys, this was all super sus the whole way through. He repeatedly told me about artists who had "disappeared", and then tried to guilt me into working on this without payment because he'd "never had a problem with artists before". I've worked with a handful of you on here, so I think you all know the amount of pride I take in my work and professionalism. I'm willing to go an extra mile if needed, but there were so many red flags. I've attached parts of the convo below for you to view as well (I won't be sending the whole thing because at one point he starts to tell me quite a bit about

  24. For the record I've worked with a number of artists and coders and never had any problems. If something needed to be discussed we did. Evidently, in your world apologies and a sincere offer to try to resolve a problem means nothing and instead you post this. And BTW the "artist who disappeared" who made that sketch is in fact our art director. Shes been with us since 2010. If you reread what was said you will see I said SHE ( the art director) passed it to someone who disappeared. The circumstances of that were not due to the site. She ( the artist) got married and decided she had no m

  25. I am Very sorry but I totally misunderstood part of our conversation going forward. I apologized and tried to explain WHAT has happened. This was not out of malice it was because I misunderstood part of the conversation. I am sorry you felt we couldnt work thru this and instead posted this here.

  26. So you have dreams of starting your own Pet Site, but have no experience with programming whatsoever, this thread is going to walk through a lot of things that you need to know, and what you need to look for from your developer (and in your code base), to ensure that you are paying for things that really matter. Please Note: This is not an exhaustive list, this is meant to be a jumping off point to help improve your overall familiarity with the process of developing code. Executive Summary As a site owner, it is your responsibility to know at least at a cursory glance how it wo

  27. Hey all, Long time no see (on the forum at least haha). Unfortunately, I'm here on my old account to give a negative experience I've had. NOTES: I'm "FlameoHotman", yes, this account is Jwatkinsart when I used to go by my middle name online. All updated art profiles are TonyWatkinsArt (insta/twitter) for lack of confusion (... can I change my name here somehow? ) I posted work of a lion on the TGL Discord server and was put in contact with PhantomFire of PocketPumaPets (which I'll call P3 going forward from here). We discussed his needs and price and settled on the price for

  28. For reference; I'm finished with this person and the situation. If anyone needs additional screenshots or logs I have the full conversation. I won't have my own image twisted as one of a person who doesn't try to bend. My payment for orders under $75USD is full, he refused and stated he wouldn't even negotiate on paying half down. I tried.

  29. 1. You told Judda I was "getting threatening". 2. Your "apology" came with no offer of resolution. Just "I didn't see this". 3. There are still numerous red flags and contradictions throughout our conversation. I generally try to work with my clients through difficulties and misunderstandings, but there comes a point where it's not a misunderstanding. You literally tried to manipulate me into working without payment by telling me how you pay artists more than they ask, and very suddenly told me about family issues you were having when I asked for payment. I made this warning at t
