painting Image Generation Changes

I am very very excited to report that I now have automated recolor technology!!!!!! I only need to draw the patterns on each species once each and a script will automatically recolor and save files for me. As part of this, I've also split the Trade Wind layers out from the base layers (meaning they are now a separate image between the base color and the white markings.

All Not-Cat images have been regenerated using this new technology. Your cats should look exactly the same as they did before (minus some stray pixels). You may also get some lag when loading the page for the first time as your browser will need to re-cache all these new images.

What this means:

1) When non-natural colors drop, any combination of color groups will be possible for tortoiseshell cats. As such, your cats' profiles now are a little more descriptive about the colors when they are trade winds.

2) In the very far distant future, it is theoretically possible for tortoiseshell types to be implemented.

craftshelper Custom Content Policy Preparation

Custom clothing and decor are still a work in progress and will need to roll out in several stages. For now, the Terms of Service has been updated to include new information about custom clothing and decor:

Terms of Service
Users are able to submit their own clothing and decor designs to the site for addition to the game. Custom clothing and decor items that have been submitted and implemented into the game become the intellectual property of Company.

For this reason, no custom item submission may contain content that is copyrighted by another party. If it is found that you have submitted an item that contains stolen or copyrighted content, the item will be removed from the game and you will be unable to submit future custom item designs.

Once a custom item submission has been approved, it will be treated as described in the Intellectual Property and Sales of In-Game Items sections above. This includes the sections on linking to the site when posting these items off-site and the restrictions on real-world currency and cross-site trades.

Users may take real-world currency commissions to create custom clothing or decor items. These commissions must be negotiated on pixelcatsend.com (not an external site or chatroom) and may only be for real-world currency or the currency/items of Pixel Cat's End. They may not be negotiated for physical items or the items or currency of another game.

Commissions for custom item designs must occur before a custom clothing or decor item has been submitted to the queue. Once designs are implemented into the game as a custom item, they will be subject to the In-Game Sales policy and may not be sold or traded for real-world currency.

All custom clothing and decor submissions must follow the Custom Content Policy.

The TL;DR of this is:

1) When you submit a design, the in-game items that result from it become part of the game and are treated like any other item within the game would be treated as far as the rules go.

2) You may take real-world currency commissions for custom items so long as the commission is for the design (and not for a specific in-game item) and occurs before the item is submitted into the queue. That is to say, someone can pay you $5 to draw and submit a little dog as a custom item, so long as this whole interaction happens before the little dog becomes an in-game item. Once the little dog is an in-game item, you can't sell specific in-game items for USD per the policy on sales/trades of in-game items.

A draft of the Custom Content Policy is also now available. This contains content and style guidelines, as well as some information about what the submission system and costs are going to look like. If you plan to make custom items, please read this in its entirety before you start working on something!

A new subforum has been added for the sales and sharing of custom content. Though custom items aren't actually implemented and live yet, you can post drafts and interest checks.

Within this subforum, there is a pinned Q&A where you can post questions or ask for clarification about the draft policy. This will be used to help improve the clarity of it between now and the launch of the feature.

Quick Summary of the System

- The price point for each individual custom item will be 25 essence fragments (~$2.50).

- The fee above will be built into the marketplace where sellers sell their custom items so that the burden of the fee is placed on the buyer and not the artist. This should reduce or eliminate the need for complex pre-order systems and pre-order management.

- The Artisan's Market will allow searching for artists/stores as well as for individual items currently on the market across all artists. Artists will enter their own keywords/search terms to help buyers find their items. Artists can easily set prices and availability in their personal store, which has a customizable bbcode intro.

- Artists must order a single copy of the item for 25 essence fragments in order to enter the queue. This is to prevent the queue from getting overburdened with submission of items that will never be implemented into the game.

- Artists can order copies of their own approved items at any time for 25 essence fragments. These can then be traded via private trades/gifts if an artist wants to sell their custom items for something that is not essence fragments (eg. trading a custom item for a cat, notes, another user's custom item, etc.)

- Everything here is a WIP and thus may change as the system is built.

OSHAapproved Bug Fixes

- Fixed issue where Whiskers stock refreshed to old quantities after last update.

- Putting text inside scene tags no longer causes the entire page to break

- Pathfinding no longer fails if more than one type of obstacle is passed.

craftscat What's next?

- Leaf Day in October!

- Custom clothing/decor will be implemented in phases. The first phase will be a rework of the inventory, item database, cat/scene decoration, sandboxes, and private trade/gift features to accommodate for this new type of item. While I'm in there, I plan on adding nicer search functions.

It is unlikely that the final release of custom clothing/decor will happen before Leaf Day.
