Glad you like the idea! The site is less than a year old, here's some features it has so far. 

837664785_ScreenShot2020-10-20at1_14_59AM.thumb.png.62abc1c04760689b0c64cf8b2becb27c.png

Species Creation
- Name your species 
- Add description
- Add credit for artists (can add multiple, this will grant permission for them to view and add their artwork if you wish to set up collaborations)
- Add artwork (upload each layer, a multifile uploader is available for upgraded users)
- Set your layer order, i.e. base on the bottom, lines on top. You can use this for watermarks, backgrounds, and foregrounds too.
- Set the 'essential' layer (lines, shading, base, etc.) that will ALWAYS come with your species no matter what color it is.

Create Colors for Species
- Colors/variations of your species can be created with the 'layer groups' panel, which is a layer linking system with customizable settings. You can use this to make colors, alternate forms (wings, horns, etc)

1243128260_ScreenShot2020-10-20at1_20_28AM.thumb.png.43b58809c4556b55e658d074db6ea46e.png

- add one or multiple layers to 'oink together' as a layer group.
- Settings include hex fills for recoloring 
- color range sliders (if you want a red dog to come in various shades of red, for example)
- opacity settings (which can be fixed or randomized within a range)
- random variation (if you want different spot patterns, for example)

Breeding Settings
- Turn breeding off or on for your species. 
- Choose same species breeding to stay within the species, or allow your species to cross with other species (either as open breeding, or within a breeding group). 
- Choose the number of offspring, a cooldown, baby stage, and other options. 
- Species pass rarity, marking rarity, and layer group rarity all have settings.

Stats 
- Create your own custom stats. 
- Turn breeding off or on for each stat.

Release Your Species
- You can keep your species private, or release it to make it available for other players to view or obtain in-game. 
- Ceate individuals of your species manually and sell or give them away. 
- Release your species through the explore feature. Choose which area(s) you want them to appear in, select a rarity, and catching method (items, points, etc.), and add optional lore blurs that players can read when they encounter your species. 

1585766655_ScreenShot2020-10-20at1_36_08AM.thumb.png.b034e6a8f6d6c4f1437b7aa63818647c.png

Evolutions & Transforms
- Allow your species to evolve from another species through leveling, stats, age, gender, etc. 
- Choose transform items that can be used to turn other adopts into your species. 

Permissions & Credit
- There is a credit and approvals system to help keep art theft off the site. Users found to be trading or stealing art are removed from art access and/or banned.
- Artists may remove their species from breeding, explore, transform, evolution, and other features at any time. 
- Already existing adopts (owned by players) cannot be removed by the species owner, BUT selling can be turned off along with the features that circulate the species. 

More information coming!

Item Creation
- Unlike species, items are a single file (no layers), but you can upload recolors as separate items.
- Create an item name and description. 
- Choose a collection category (categories include rocks, critters, books, flowers, etc.) so players can collect your item (all items are collectible). 
- Choose a main function/use for your item. This will ensure that your item has at least one in-game use, whether its giving EXP points to adopts, giving exploring energy, giving the player some account EXP, random points, catching items, or expanding inventory space. 
- Allow other creators to use your item as species transforms or item containers (items that contain other items).

Item Artwork
- Add artwork for your item. Unlike species, which can vary in size and dimensions, items are simple 100x100px PNGs. 
- Add credit to all artists involved in the making of your item.

209705019_ScreenShot2020-10-20at1_50_50AM.thumb.png.c25afb2a925c32555e8b76c06adbd86e.png

Distribute Item
- Like species, your item can be released into the game to be sold or given to other players. 
- You can create individuals of your item, just like species, if you want to manually distribute it to others or keep it private. 
- Or add your item to up to 3 explore areas with their own rarity. 
- Add your item to the NPC shops (like the Book Store, or Garden Center). Choose a rarity, restock quantity, and price range. 
- Add your item to a container. Containers are other items that, when opened by the player, randomly generate one of the possible items that's assigned to be inside. This dropdown includes all of your item items, plus any other items that artists have set to allow others to use as containers. 

302450804_ScreenShot2020-10-20at1_51_01AM.thumb.png.f4f222d057b6547316f89e53f725d450.png

Releasing Items/Species
The final step of creation for both species and items is the release button. Before anything is released, it remains unavailble to players in-game, and cannot be viewed by anyone other than the creator, site staff, and artists who are given credit to that species/item. 
This step is optional, artists do not have to release their work on the site. 
Requirements: 
- Must have at least 3 tags added. 
- All artists MUST be credited. 
- License agreement must be signed by all artists (they will be notified and can sign this on their license page). 
- Must go through the approval queue and be approved by staff.

Gameplay Features
4dopt can also be played as a pet site without creating anything. 
Here are some of the gameplay features in action!

Explore

- Click on items to view item information, such as where to find them.

My Adopts
- View all of your adopts, create folders, and sort them any way you'd like. 
- Place adopts into your storage, which provides extra space (players can have hundreds of slots without having to upgrade thanks to the storage system). 
- Get more slots as your level up. You can also get additional stacking slots with account upgrades and permanent slot purchases. 

1553188738_ScreenShot2020-10-20at2_50_05AM.thumb.png.1a705b43341e648c801c7a5810ca4c60.png

Adopt Search
- Find adopts for sale, of a species, color, gender, and numerous advanced searching options. 
- The search includes all adopts (including ones in storage) on the site that are owned by players (no shelter or explore spawns will appear here). 

1643687627_ScreenShot2020-10-20at3_13_35AM.thumb.png.eda19c447b369b91c9d5e92a716d0ddd.png

Naming System
- Adopt names are randomly generated by the name generator, which contains thousands of possible words. 
- Names are normally two words combined. Single and triple word names are possible, but less common.
- Random names can be hilarious! ANd/or valuable.
- If you don't want a random name, you can opt out of the system with a common item for renaming (a Name Stone).
- An adopt's 'old name' cannot be changed. However, it can be toggled off so it's not visible, for those who don't like the random name system.
- Names are not unique. Multiple adopts can have the same name.
- Inappropriate names can be reported by players and added to the blocking system by staff. 
- Collect your favorite names! Or funny names. Or names with a theme... and customize your adopts to look the part! 

133191747_ScreenShot2020-10-20at3_17_14AM.thumb.png.a8354af4fd3c62cb30af9bcb96cfda4b.png

Recoloring Tool
- Recolor your individual adopts by adding, removing, or editing individual layers.
- This feature is meant mostly for the species creator to have full access and customization of individual adopts. 
- By default, this is inaccessible to anyone but the species creator, BUT creators can make it public access if they choose to.
- Previews are realtime, no page reloading needed.
- Change any setting including opacity, sort order, filter (such as multiply, overlay, difference, etc.), hex fill, and color modulators for hue, saturation, and brightness (these are applied after the hex if a hex refill is selected).

1160866142_ScreenShot2020-10-20at3_23_08AM.thumb.png.762d97399cce0b03a9b5aff187544b00.png

Edit All Bios
Use the edit bios page to quickly modify the bios of all your adopts! Bios can be used to give your adopts their own persononalities or any other custom information you want others to see.
ALSO, you can add special codes to your adopts' bios to activate certain functions (these codes are hidden, so they will not appear in the bio to anyone but you).
- [lockbreed] removes the adopt from your breedasble adopts page, so you will never accidentally breed them.
- [locksell] removes selling options and prevents you from accidentally getting rid of your adopt through selling, shelter, raffle, auctions, and any other features that would remove them from your account.
- [lockevo] prevents accidentally evolving your adopt. 
- [remoldname] makes an adopt's old name not visible, so you can opt out of the random naming system and just name your adopts whatever you want (the old name will reappear if this code is removed).
- [deleteme] allows you to completely delete the adopt, which can be done through the 'Data' panel of your account settings. This will delete the adopt's data from the game. 

64123748_ScreenShot2020-10-20at2_59_53AM.thumb.png.f358993a60ce6e0769844d2aff85e683.png

Forums & Chat
- Meet and chat with others on the forums!
- There is also a realtime chat on the site, which can be toggled off or on in the right sidebar. 
- The toggleable chat feature is directly connected to the forums, so you can use it as a quick access to forums any time. 
- Switch channels in realtime and chat without reloading the page. 
- All forum topics are their own channel, allowing for easy forum access through the chat.
- Post as yourself or as your adopts with a dropdown!
- Gain adopt EXP by posting as adopts (spamming is allowed in the spamming section).
- Subscribe to topics to be notified through the notification system.
- We also have an active Discord server: https://discord.com/invite/wuJrUwm

1816911482_ScreenShot2020-10-20at3_10_01AM.thumb.png.a7ca8e7f4bd853e0e730b47421dfd631.png

Notifications System
- When something significant happens, your notificats icon will light up. This includes things like adopts sold, news posts, items sold, etc.
- Check your latest notifications, organize by category.
- View points earned or spent in your notification logs either by all or by category.
- Delete notifications.
- Edit your notifications settings to turn notifications off or on by category (so you will no longer have to see indicators or sift through things you don't care about).
- View public notification logs for specific items, adopts, or species if you're interested in tracking something.

Other Features (misc.)
- Private messaging system, of course.
- Custom profiles.
- Normally only the artist can crteate adopts of their species, but there's an option to make this public.
- Change queues. Certain changes to a species, such as removing them from circulation, will need 1-2 days to process (to ensure players have time to prepare for the change).
- Approval queue for artist applications, and for file replacements. Higher level players can gain access to viewing the approval queue, and can leave comments that are only viewable to staff (for anonymous tipoffs if there's any issues).
- Achievements (which give rewards for reaching various milestones, and can be shown off on your profile).
- Comments section for news, player profiles, adopt profiles, and species pages.
- Custom shops/shop keepers for player shops.
- Referral system, which gives out giftboxes if you refer a player who purchases credits (gift boxes contain valuable items!)
- Block certain tags. This will hide any images of adopts or items with these tags.
- Block players. You can block them just from specific things like mail, forums, or adopt sales (or all).
- New species and item releases news posts!
- Easy to access on-site guides. If you see a (?) next to a feature, you can click on it to access the guide.

More to come.
