  1. Question for anyone with feedback on the topic of user submitted artwork. How do you handle user submitted art content? Don't have to answer all these, I'm just throwing some questions out there to get the thinking juices flowing! 1. How do you prevent or deal with art theft or copyright infringement, such as players uploading an obscure anime character, OC, or logo and then staff not noticing until it's been on the site? 2. What's the ideal interface for the process? What's the best way (you think) a site could go about allowing user submitted art? What kind of templates, information, or file submission system would you want in a feature like this? 3. What rules/copyright terms are important to include in this? Copyright stuff for the images themselves, plus game rules for how the players can expect to use the art (preventing community issues that could be caused by the feature). 4. What are the best practical application? Players being able to upload a full pet image, or just markings? Any markings, or specific markings? Items? Any other ideas that stand out to you? And how are they used? 5. Exclussitivity. What uploaded stuff (if any) should be exclussive to the player, or be available to all players? 6. What kind of rewards/payment are good for this? 7. If a site has breeding, would you allow it with the user content or not? If yes, how? 8. Is it better to A) have a syustem that pays players (similar to staff) to create more content that matches the site, or B ) a system where players pay to have their own personalized uploads. Or both?
  2. The cellshading with ultra smooth lines is a definite selling point for a lot of pet games. If you're going for a more specialized audiance like in SIMs that have realistic animal genetics, your game might attract the kinds of people who want realistic art styles.

    More updates! Skvaders A new creature has descended from the heavens and can be found during the month of August (though you can also get them year-round). Sort notifications by category. This allows you to easily delete any notifications of a certain type that you don't want to see, or locate something you're looking for. It also works with the money earned and spent feature that tracks all of your in-game income. English spotting can now be found either with realistic expression or as a fantasy marking that combines with other colors. New pose! This scratchy-eared bunny is a new addition to the more realistic poses. Mushrooms are a new item type that can enhance litters when breeding. Each mushroom has its own unique effect such as increasing the litter by 1 kit, 2 kits, 3 kits, making a whole litter male or female, forcing the pose of a specific parent, allowing skills to be inherited, increased aptitude stats in offspring, increased chances of chimerism or other rarities, inherited personality, copied hidden moidfiers or genotype, and more. More updates: - You can now expand your den size. - Profiles now have a custom section that you can edit with your own text. - A new set of badges for sending rabbits to the Seekers. - Cores, new items that can cause rare expressions of a color. - Rabbit treasures. Your rabbits can now hold items for aesthetic purposes. - Night mode layout for those who like a darker theme.
  4. @Celosia thanks for the add. Yeah, I do art too.
  5. Hello all and glad to hear I'm not alone. I don't strictly work alone, granted, and have had a great time working with others off and on, but sometimes am alone in my projects and would love to have more people in the same boat to talk to sometimes. My discord is Lunar Eclipse#6855 if anyone has that and would like to add me there. Shoot me a line if you ever feel like talking about features, dev stuff, code, art, etc.
  6. Here's some more updates for Leporidae! Summer Fair - The Summer Fair is a new type of show that's open from June to September! The winning rabbits are sold for a decent price and you can win some nifty fair exclussive items. Summer Skirts - These new Skirts can be purchased with points earned from the Summer Fair shows! Californian colored Harlequins - You can now get the Harlequin breed in this gene! Pet Shows - The pet shows have received a nice update. The winner gets a much bigger jackpot and is now announced in the news! It runs every other week. Golden Time Capsule - This new credit item will turn all of your kits into adults! It's an insta-age up device for your whole rabbitry so you don't have to wait for them to age. Himalayan Rhinelanders - Similar to Harlequins, Rhinelanders now come in this gene! Summertime Plushies - There's a couple of cute new plushies you can get at the Summer Fair! Leaderboards - Rabbit leaderboards now include traits! Most Leveled and Missions Completed have also been added to the player leaderboards. Both leaderboards have been given a layout makeover to make them easier to read, better-looking, and they now list more results. Additional updates... - Shows (GSRA and Everything) now give monetary rewards to all placements, so showing is now a good way to make some money even with smaller wins. - Several CODs have passed, making the following new color/breeds officially recognized by the GSRA: for Black Gold Tipped Steel New Zealands, Red Eyed White Continental Giants, Chinchilla Giant Angoras, Chestnut Giant Angoras, Dutch New Zealands. - A referral system was added. You can now get GD (Good Deed) points for referring someone who purchases credits! GD Points can be exchanged for special and rare items. - Blowers now have a much lower chance of breaking, and various bugs have been fixed. We've also re-added the 'Reserve Stud' feature.

    Thank you, Digital. Warrenz has been getting tons of updates! Here's some updates since my last post: New layout by CarrotCube! The site is looking flashier than ever, and is easier to navigate. The first mythical creature. You can get these during the June event! Palm tree bunnies. These are also for the June event. Shop searching! This is a basic feature to go along with the player shops. NPC shops and restocking. This is a basic feature that allows you to snag items. Sometimes they have sales. Crystal Cave previewer. Allows you to preview your rabbits with various color alterating/transforming items applied. DIchromatic eyes. These are a rare mutation. New Spirit variations. The spirit markings now come in more variations than before. New pose. This fluffbutt was added as a standard pose. Preview Specs. These are a credit item that allows you to view the rabbits in explore before clicking.

    April Updates - All rabbit artwork has received a bit of an upgrade (an extra layer of shading). - Chimerism has been added. One side of a rabbit with chimerism will have completely different genetics from the other side (any combination is possible). - Rabbits can now be sorted into separate tunnels within their warrens. - Various bug fixes and minor improvements. - The very first holiday event is currently underway for the month of April! There's a special April exclussive area where you can collect eggs that may contain valuable items.
  9. Are you getting any error messages? What happens when you try to sign up? Feel free to email us at admin@leporidae.org Here are some updates since the last post! Realtime Chat You can now join the Discord chat at any time through the site! Tortoise, Sallander, Magpie, and Japanese Mimic Lops Himalayan-colored Czech Frosties Tort Polish Californian Blanc de Hotots Pointed White Dwarf Hotots Pointed White Belgian Hares Californian Lilacs Californian Checkered Giants Californian-colored American Chinchillas Martenized Sallander Czech Frosties Dutch Lionheads Customs You can now upload your very own custom rabbits!

    Glad to here you're loking what you see so far! Here are a few more recent updates. Gradient Colors These can now be found in some rare instances of colorful rabbits. Realtime Chat Warrenz now has an active Discord chat that can be accessed any time on the site. Wild Color This new color bridges the gap between realism and fantasy, providing a lot of fun and creative variation to all rabbit poses! Eye Colors (and many other colors) Any color is possible now including eye colors (even heterochromia in rare cases). Combine colors with wild to see some wild-looking variations! Spirit Markings Near a special area called the Spirit tree, you can find rabbits with unique glowing markings. You can also give these markings to any rabbit by fighting the spirit predators in the area (can be removed later if needed). Other New Features: Character Contest - This now runs once a week with huge payouts for category winners. The top winner is featured in the news each week. Random Daily Bonus - Once you reach a certain level, you can get a daily rabbit bonus and daily account bonus, being rewarded with stats, exp, and pts. Overcrowded Burrows - This is an extension of the Forsaken Burrows (where unwanted rabbits are sent) that has much lower prices. Seekers - A place where other warrens may request specific types of rsabbits. Fill their requests to earn pts. Auction Hollows - Where you can auction off your rabbits or place bids on others. Snowflakes - Items that can change the hidden values that control your rabbits' color and pattern (separate from genes and alleles).
  11. Edit: No longer needed! Seeking programmer who can add a simple realtime chat to leporidae.org. We have a mysql database and node.js is installed on the server. I'd also want to have permission to use the chat code for my other projects.
  12. Enjoy your stay if you decide to try it out! Here's another update on some of the latest Leporidae news. 1. Track Your Income You can now track how much money you've earned and spent on your events page. You can also check this out on any particular feature by selecting it from the events category dropdown. 2. Show Results Update You can now view show results by order of title (Best in Show, Best of Breed, Best of Variety, etc.). See at a glance whether the rabbit won a leg and how many other rabbits competed for it. 3. Search Order by Legs You can now search rabbits on the site by number of leg awards won (if you're looking for the show winners). 4. Missions A new feature called Missions tasks you with finding items for NPC rabbits. These rabbits have come all the way from warrenz.net to send you on these missions and will pay pretty well for them! If you have some junk or excess items laying around, this is a good way to turn them into cash. 5. Otter English Lops & Velveteen Lops You can now get English Lops and Velveteen Lops in Otter and other colors that come from the at allele. 6. Open/Close Buildings You can now set your buildings to be invisible if you want a little privacy. This will prevent other players from seeing the building on your rabbitry page. You can still link a friend to it directly. 7. Sell & Rename All When you click the sell all option on kits in litters, you can also rename them at the same time. 8. Dutch/Vienna New Zealands and Giant Angoras New Zealands and Giant Angoras now come in Dutch, Vienna, and BEW.

    Two more poses were added recently. The Dutch pattern was also added, and broken pattern is coming up next!
  14. EDIT: SOLD Hello. I am the owner of leporidae.org and warrenz.net. I began working on a third site, eggadopt.com, but I'm not as interested in pursuing it. It features:- Adoptions- Hatching- Breeding- Dynamic image layering system- Database- Registration, login,forums, private messages, and other basic featuresYou can view the live demo at https://www.eggadopt.com Current Specs Running MySQL 5.7 PHP Version 7.1.26 Imagick compiled with ImageMagick version ImageMagick 6.7.2-7 2017-03-22 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org Imagick using ImageMagick library version ImageMagick 6.7.2-7 2017-03-22 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org Domain expires 6/12/19.

    I've started implementing labels whenever I'm in working on something with them, they'll get done eventually. What an improvement! I also took your advise on the layout, looks much better with some green. Also, added a level progress bar. There's a new badge system now that you can get nifty rewards from by accomlishing various things around the site. We also added various different ear nicks your rabbits can get from fighting, which can be healed with aloe vera or kept for aesthetic. Level progress bars were added to rabbits, too. You can now get rabbits with white markings and/or blue eyes. Additional stuff: Suggestions and bug topics have priority labels that you can set. You can sell items you found from foraging or sell rabbits to other players. Added a rabbit search feature that also serves as a place to find rabbits for sale. There's a Discord server now: https://discordapp.com/invite/4aVnxBu
  17. Updates since September 14, 2018 Leporidae continues to grow. We now have around 10-30 people online at any given time. There have been too many updates to list here, but here's a few. The French Angora artwork has been updated and is looking better than ever! A new fantasy color called Merle was added. The English Spot pattern has been added to many more breeds. The search feature has more options including the ability to omit fantasy colors. English Lops got an artwork update. You can now turn on utilities for a building, which provides lighting that can increase litter sizes (fertility) for the animals in the building. English Angoras got an artwork update. Other Additions: - A leveling system that provides many milestones and rewards based on using various features throughout the site. - A COD system that allows you to get new colors (and even breeds) recognized and showable. - The ability to save pedigrees. - Caring for animals is much easier now with the ability to care for multiple animals at a time in one click. - Traits and hidden color modifiers are easier to pass on now. If both partents are the exact same shade of gray, the babies will be too. If both parents have exactly the same broadness of head, the babies will too. - Ability to choose how many animals you view per page, allowing you to adjust based on your play style and Internet speed. - More crossbreeds. - A new Discord server https://discord.gg/vsNSsxS - The ability to become the leader of an official breed club through monthly voting and campaigning.
  18. I agree, good advise above. As far as knowing when players are right, or when you're right, sometimes it can be tricky. The way we perceive wealth is relative to what you can do with it and other people's wealth. If people feel disadvantaged because they can't buy the things they want, add more things they can buy on a lower budget. If they feel disavantaged compared to rich players, add a way for them to compete against the rich players that doesn't involve money (so everyone's on even footing). If players feel that money is too easy, add more expensive rewards. Most of the time though players can tell when there's an inbalance in the economy. I always examine the statistics and focus on the amount of disposable income people have. I usually try the psychological stuff first if I'm not sure.

    Thank you for the feedback! We plan to add darker backgrounds to text in a few areas, add the labels now that you mention it. btw, I've always liked Eliyo's layout. Good design techniques.
  20. Just putting it out there that I've worked with Reav. I've found them to be easy to work with. They have the pigeon knowledge needed to pull this off, and good art quality (great pigeon anatomy). I agree that this site has good potential.

    Leporidae.org, after being worked on for 5+ years (still going), now has a sister site named Warrenz.net. Warrenz is similar to Leporidae in some ways, but features wild rabbits and has more of an animated RPG style. Current features include breeding (with a color genetics system), a fighting system, and foraging for food. The site is open to the public, but still very new and we're still adding things. =D
  22. I drew these rabbits for my game, but have decided to not use these ones. If anyone would like to purchase them, they're $20 each and come with full copyright and 600x600px layered PSD files.
  23. I did some skletches for Kingofcrows and had a good experience working with them. Highly recommended!
  24. Edit: I found some artwork. Thank you! Hello! I'm looking for feline art. Sketches, lines, colored, anything for sale or artists who take commissions. I definitely need a cat that's more on the realistic side, not a super friendly pose (either mean or neutral). Please let me know if you have anything available and prices.
  25. Oooh, I get what you mean! That sounds better, could probably use the same code too (just change the ranges for $x and $y that determine where the sheet gets moved to). Oooh, I've never used a hashing or seeding method for this. How do you use those for genetic traits? And how would you name the image files being called up? (would they have the hash in them?) I'd like to see a snippet or example. I would love to implement bigger and better image generation methods for breeding systems. Or if you have a link to somewhere I can read about this, let me know. I'm also interested in hearing from you about which limitations would make you prefer another method. There's a few things I've been trying to smooth out (not sure if it's possible or not), such as finding a way to reverse the method (get the original value of the pet when your inputs are just the primes and modulus selections for each pattern). This would be useful for a generator where players get a custom pet. We have a generator on my site that uses the modulus, and you can select patterns by changing the hidden value, but I'd like to make it so there's a sliding scale or dropdown selection for each different type of markings, which all come together to generate the single value using the primes and modulus selections involved. I feel like this should be mathematically possible, but I never took high level math classes, so I'm still working my primitive brain trying to figure out a formula (if it's possible). And the tricky breeding thing I mentioned might be a limirtation or 'quirk,' another thing I'm not sure if there's a fix to. I'm still trying to figure something out for that on my site. I did find a solution to running out of smaller primes though. I just use another modulus to set it for how many files I want. For example, say you want to add a star pattern allele to a pet's genotype. You want different variations of stars, but the lowest prime you have available is 173 because the other 39 (or however many) primes before 173 are being used for other marking (or other types of variation like opacity and such). You don't want to draw 173 different star patterns, so: $starpattern = $markingint % 173; $starpattern2 = $starpattern % 3; Add the layer for a file called "star" . $starpattern2 . ".png" and it'll cycle through 3 different star patterns based on the 173 remainder of the pet's marking value. If the pet has a marking value of 346, you get star0.png because 173 goes into 346 with a remainder of 0. 347 will give the pet star1.png, 348 will give star2.png, and 349 goes back to star0.png. I'm always testing though and will post on this thread if I find any limitations that I know of. Anyway, yeah. I'm interested in knowing more about hashing or other methods.
