**As a head's up, while this thread has been recently revived, it's an old thread and the site is actually open now, though we aren't releasing new items at the moment while we work on figuring out some post-early-beta programming tweaks** I am VERY PLEASED to be able to make this post regarding Aethria, as until recently we were at a stand-still due to lack of a competent and reliable programmer. As a recap, for those who may have previously been following development of my Inkborne/Seraphel sites, who may have been members of Aluriya in the past, or whose hopes of a revival of Teripets were dashed when we encountered so many difficulties in reviving the site - Instead of developing all these ideas into separate sites, we decided to create a single virtual world with different lands within, each forming a sort of mini-petsite with different activities, different pets and different ways to obtain those pets. Items obtained in all areas however, can be used across the entire site! There is so much to tell you about Aethria that I don't even know where to start! But I guess the best place is to share news regarding where we actually are now with development. The basic site framework is up! Previous members of Aluriya will recognize some features of the layout, as the world of Aethria is Aluriya's home world You can view the front page here, though registration is not open. www.aethria.com - We have most of the basic functionality working, including forums, private messaging, user inventories, news, help desk, banking and currency system, item creation, friends' list and similar site functions. - We have different methods of pet creation in each different land, and thus far have worked through: -----the "growables" system is functional up to the point of actually having added the first growable base and growable "seed" item via the admin panel, and are ready to actually start testing the system, which is essentially in place, but will require some tweaking to bring it in-line with aethria game play. The growables system will be used to obtain pets in the land of Calligra (Inkborne). -----the "custom demo" system is also functional to the point where we are able to load up the bases and markings into a working pet demo, and will soon be at the point of testing actual pet creation. - Item creation is fully functional and we have already loaded about 150 items to the site with more being added every day. - Main map and essential locations for the land of Aluriya are in place. Regarding Art Assets We already have a huge amount of art in the process of being uploaded to the site! We have enough pet bases with markings and enough items to put us well on the way into our first opening months without having to scramble. We also have packages of Limited Edition pre-opening items ready to go, and a Limited Edition alpha tester pet base for Calligra! However, pets previously featured on Aluriya still need to have their shading re-created to match Aethria style. What's the Plan, Stan? The current plan is to open the site when all basic functionality is in place and with a minimum of two Lands open and ready to use - Aluriya and Calligra (Inkborne). Once the site is open we have plans to add new lands for Seraphel and a mini-Khimeros Land. We are also strongly considering a Teripets-land if there is interest for such, using the same pet and site concepts but with all pets redrawn to avoid the kind of conflicts with former site artists that we previously encountered. We hope this news is as exciting for you as it is for us! If so, please follow our thread in Game Development as we'll be posting most of our updates there, though we may post some milestone news in the News section as well. We also encourage you to like and follow us on Facebook as we will post some exclusive content sneak peeks there
Hopefully I can get some discussion going, though I don't know how many forum goers here that will be interested As some of you may remember, I bought Teripets a few years back, but didn't end up getting the site back up because of drama with previous staff/artists. I do want to include teripets on Aethria, though. I have been thinking that a good way to do it might be to put up an exact copy of the old site with all the old art that is just for browsing purposes - you can view it for nostalgia sake, but there wouldn't be any money-making aspects to it. Then, we could also include a new updated version of teripets with entirely new art so that there would not be any conflict with previous artists, that would be a playable version. If someone would like to claim that they own an art asset or anything of that nature, they'd be welcome to present proof and we'd take it on a case-by-case basis. Would there be any interest in this kind of thing?
