Seashell Soirée

Posted 3 weeks and 6 hours ago :: Last edited 3 weeks and 2 hours ago by chamalaeon

Welcome to the Seashell Soirée!

Thank you to everyone who participated in The Great Mushroom Harvest during March and April!  We had a lot of fun and hope you did too!  With this new update come a number of new things that you can enjoy doing on site, from new pets to new dailies, a brand new permanent shop, a scavenger hunt, and more!

Site Alterations

As you might have noticed in the past few days, there’s a new daily!  Help Goolia attempt to retrieve her bones from her mischievous summon each day in Higher or Lower!

Say a fond farewell with us to Stewy for now.  For unknown reasons, Queen Iola seems to have lost the ability to make more.  At least we can continue to enjoy(?) her delicious(?) stews…

If you look at a character's page, such as that of the best(?) cook on Aerius, Queen Iola, you may notice a new button at the top!  With the boop feature, you can boop any character somebody else owns once per day.  There's no notifications of this, and it is not akin to favoriting them.  Think of it as though you are patting them on the head!  You can opt out of having your characters be boopable in your user settings, and of course, characters viewable to an authorized list can only be booped by mods and your authorized users.  We hope you enjoy booping!

You may also find some surprises around the site!

New Event Currency

Introducing... Seashells a small dark blue seashell with gold flecks! With this event comes a lovely glittering shell! What are they for? Well keep reading!

Seaside Pet Variants

Now we get to introduce our second variant, now purchasable with the event! Some of you may have seen these already, but now we can properly introduce them! Say hello to the
Seaside pets!

These sweet little friends are perfect for beach lovers! Show your love for these pets by purchasing them with Seashells a small dark blue seashell with gold flecks or feeding your regular pet the Seaside Cookie!

New Pets

With the introduction of the Aqueous nations come three new friends!  We hope you’ll delight in getting to know the Cephulu, Tiburok, and Whazer!  For now, these three are only available at the Seashell Soirée - Boone's currently having trouble with the fancy schmancy tech to get tanks and water filters up and running for them in his shop.  Hopefully his daughter will come help her old man out soon.  Like the Hopopper, Jelluxi, and our beloved Stewy, they have different variants that they can be changed to with cookies.

In addition, there’s now lore up on all the site’s pets in the Fauna Section of the World!

New Shops!

Check out our event shop, Seashell Soirée Where you can spend your event currency ! Our event shop features new pet variants, strong elixirs, cookies, and the new pets, so there’s plenty available to purchase! You can earn Seashells a small dark blue seashell with gold flecks by completing prompts, 

It also looks like the Great Mushroom Harvest was the exact chance Blossom needed!  Visit her at the Strawberry Gardens, her new permanent shop, to get tools and spores for use in Cultivation - and maybe consider unlocking the Mushroom Gardens via prompt if you haven’t yet!  It seems like the new aqueous mushrooms you can grow might be used in some new dishes too...

New Prompts

This event comes with new prompts to enjoy! Follow your Dextroluma as they enjoy themselves at the Seashell Soirée, and get involved yourself, as one of the prompts is to paint a seashell yourself!  That prompt rewards a lot of seashells a small dark blue seashell with gold flecks and a special shell - but if you aren’t able to get the materials to do it, don’t worry.  You’ll be able to purchase the special shell from the event shop with seashells a small dark blue seashell with gold flecks.  (You can also do this if you just want more of it to put into your characters’ inventories!)

Additionally, what’s this?  There’s new Key Character prompts for Blossom, Boone, and the newly introduced rulers of the Eternal Depths, Anja and Syndra!  We hope you enjoy getting to know them and collecting their trinkets for your characters

New Explore

Oh - it looks like a new place to explore has appeared!  Check out the Tide Pools, where you can find collectible seashells - and maybe some other things.  The Tide Pools will disappear when the alignment of Aerius’ moons shift on July 1st, so definitely explore them while they’re here!

New Award (and Scavenger Hunt)

Of course with our New Event comes a new Award! Best get to collecting seashells from the Tide Pools and exploring the site itself - to get this award, you’ll need a collection of them.  Of course, you could do prompts and buy them from Queen Anja and Queen Syndra… but we’re told that exploring will get them faster!

New Items

In the event shop, you may notice something called 'Snapshots'!  These items apply a background to your character's profile / mastlerist entry, which you can see demonstrated by our lovely Lalasa!  Right now, the first one of the Eternal Palace only available at the Seashell Soirée, but we've heard rumors Serena plans to start offering them in July.  Bear in mind that these backgrounds will not work if your character's image has a background already.  You also must put the snapshot into the character's inventory for it to work - so if you want to display the Eternal Palace on five of your characters, you'll need a snapshot for each of them.

Discord Nitro Boosters are getting a free snapshot of Endville as one of their rewards for this past month of support.  It will become available for purchase by everyone - including boosters who would like to get extras - in June!

Check out the Past Dialogues to refresh your memory on what different shopkeepers and events have said before - and keep an eye out for when dialogues change again!

Look Forward To...

This event will continue through the end of June! 

 

Character Authorization

Posted 1 month and 2 days ago :: Last edited 1 month and 2 days ago by Lunathyst

CHARACTER AUTHORIZATION

Our wonderful coder Cylunny has had this in the works for us for a little while and now we're happy to introduce it! Please give them a big thank you!!!

This was a much requested idea from our beta testers feedback forms and we couldn't agree more with it.
It's important that everyone is comfortable on site and we hope this helps greatly ♥

LITTOL.png

How does it work?

It's fairly simple actually! I will note there is no mass character selector and thus, each character will need to be changed manually.

1.) Select the character you'd like to hide / have autho only on and scroll down until you see 'Edit Profile'



2.) After selecting 'Edit Profile' scroll down once again until you see the following; Authorized User(s) & The hide Button.
Hovering over the will give you more information on what these do! 



Authorized User(s) allows you to choose up to 25 Users to authorize (You do not need to autho mods) So if you'd like certain friends to see this is your option!

Hide will hide the character from regular users, mods are still able to see these characters. If you'd rather not add users to authorize then this is your option!

3.) From here, type in the users names you want to be authorized to see your characters or select the hide button! It all depends on you!

4.) Select the 'Edit Profile' button when you're done to save this information and your character is now hidden!

IMPORTANT NOTES

Featured characters are not randomly chosen and are in fact manually chosen by mods. We take into account how much the character has been drawn, showcased etc when we want to feature them.
However, due to our new extension we will also have to take into account characters that are now hidden

If your character IS hidden, they cannot be featured on our featured sidebars as your character will not be visible for all to see.

ADDITIONAL notes


- If your character is hidden, mods are able to see them as normal.
- If your character is hidden, people not authorized will see a custom thumbnail image and the masterlist number on the masterlist, they cannot see the characters name or design or owner.
- If a non authorized user were to select the character, it will bring them to a 404 page!
- If your hidden character is featured on your profile page, a non authorized user will see this as"No selected character featured" No thumbnail, nothing.
- If a non authorized user were to go to view all of your characters, they will not see anything. No thumbnails, nothing.
- If you submit a prompt with a hidden character it will submit just fine.
- Unauthorized users cannot submit prompts or art of hidden characters, there will be a "character not found" error.
- If a user has NOT authorized you, please respect their wishes in doing so, some people prefer to stay private and that's OK.


That's all for now mushies!! Enjoy ♥

Welcome to Aerius

Posted 3 months and 3 days ago :: Last edited 3 months and 3 days ago by Lunathyst



WELCOME TO AERIUS!

After 6 or so months now of hard work we’re finally ready to introduce you all to the big updates we’ve been teasing about in announcements!!! 

……

We have our own website!

Today marks 10 Years of Dextroluma and I couldn’t be happier to celebrate with my wonderful mods and community!

Again a big big biiiiiig thank you to the following people!


PuffinDoodle, GutsandGays, chamalaeon, Lollilumi, SoiLotus, Smol-Squeep, intrepidloves and our site coder and wonderful bug fixer Cylunny!
I also want to shout out to the lorekeeper server for all of their help, advice and guidance on this journey!
I couldn’t have done this alone without all of these beautiful people, so please please give a big THANK YOUU!!


It feels weird to say… Hey, I have a website now! Here it is! But it’s real and it’s a lot and I’m just so proud I… with like 0 coding knowledge was able to put this together, I dived in head first and hoped for the best and well… You see the result!! I’m just so happy!

So, What exactly does this mean?

Good question!! Moving to a website can be quite the leap and it is, we’ve gone through some big changes and I hope you can enjoy things now that they’re streamlined, up to date and a bit easier to find!

Upon viewing the website, I recommend you view this newbie guide firstly before doing anything else! 
This will get you situated, explain some of our basic features and so on!

Additionally I recommend the FAQ for any detailed questions you might have!

Please note we are not fully ready and we still have a few things left to complete! This includes but is not limited to:

○ Masterlists and character transfers

○ Information & Guides

○ Shop character art

○ Assets including traits

○ Bugs with purchasing pets / variants (This is a known bug and we are working on it!)



Things to take a look at on the site!

○ We’re missing assets for our design guide, but you can find that here! This should hopefully help those who struggle designing Dextroluma!

○ Our selection of prompts will grow, but for right now we have a steady amount to get you started! You can check out the prompts here or if you’d just like to see all of them in general you may click this link!

World Index Our world index can be found here, with this you can browse pretty much anything! Items, traits and pets!

Traits have also been altered to be more streamlined, these should be easily viewed here, If you’d prefer to view by rarity you can do so here.
You can also view by
category in the dropdown menus at the top of the page!

○ Interested in the world of Aerius? You can browse our World page here, Here you can find locations, flora and fauna and some interesting history!
Additionally with locations comes a pretty fun site feature! Go to your
Characters masterlist page, select edit profile and then you can choose where your Dextroluma lives by clicking the location drop down!

 

○ While we’re on the topic of locations, you may notice region names have been altered! We felt they were a little bland and basic and have given them an overhaul! For ease we have put their past names beside them, so you won’t get lost!

 

What about the special guest artists?

Upon launch we’ll be introducing our 4 Special Guest Artists and the designs each of them have made for the 10 year anniversary.
These designs will be available to everyone from the 18th and onwards! These will be posted on site!



FREE GIFTS??

Iola awaits you in the forest castle and it looks like she might have something for you! (psst, also claim the free raffle ticket while you're at it too! Don't forget to open it in your inventory!)

cHANGES REGARDING CURRENCY

As we've moved to a website, currency has gone through a lot of changes. The currency you currently have will not transfer to the site, but we will have a special sale in the discord to use up your old Crystals and plenty of ways to earn new ones on site. Regarding owned items, characters and MYO slots, please await the ping in the discord server where Puffin will help you out!

When is this discord sale?

The crystal sale will happen soon, we’re wanting to add even more goodies to it so everyone has a chance to use up their crystals! With the site launch things have become a bit overwhelming and so there will be a slight delay on that! But don’t worry! We’ll keep you posted! 

And with that…. 

 

10 YEARS BABY!!!! LET’S CELEBRATE, GRAB SOME CAKE, DRINK AND LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!



 

 

Beta Tester Site Feedback!

Posted 3 months and 4 days ago :: Last edited 3 months and 3 days ago by PuffinDoodle

I know it's not been that long since you've all jumped aboard, but we are in need of some feedback! We've created a Google Form to fill out for ease so we can get the specifics and see how to change things up! 

As a note, please do remember this is still very much a big WIP, information, lore and guides are still lacking and we are currently working on things as the days go by! Bugs come and go and we have to jump in and try to fix those as quick as we can, which do unfortunately push us back! But that aside, let's get into the form!! 

Google forms will require your email (To send a copy of your submission) and so there's no duplicate submissions! We also require your site name so you can get a fun little award!! This award is only available for our beta testers and after launch won't be available to regular members!

Please do answer honestly, we want to make things better and we want the website to be fun!

Welcome to Beta

Posted 3 months and 6 days ago :: Last edited 3 months and 6 days ago by Lunathyst


Welcome to Beta!

If you’re here you’ve earned the exclusive right to take part in our beta testing!! We’re finally excited to spill all the details and we appreciate you joining us on this new journey!

Since the beginning it was my goal to create a website for Dextrolumas, but 10 long years ago, I didn’t have the skills or ideas to make that come true. With the help of my amazing and beautiful mod team; PuffinDoodle, GutsAndGays, Chamalaeon, Lollilumi, SoiLotus, Smol-Squeep, IntrepidLoves and our coder Cylunny, we’ve been able to kickstart those dreams and finally bring to you, Dextroluma.com. Be sure to give a big big thank you to everyone!

We’ve decided to bring in beta testers earlier for a few reasons!
○ Bug testers!! We can only do so much from the admin side, so we’re hoping you can direct us to any bugs you may come across! Please use the report bug feature on the website or ping us in the booster chat!

○ Overall site functions! Aside from bugs we want to make sure everything else works as intended!

○ We’d love feedback in general! There will be a google survey we’ll send out in which you can give us your thoughts and what we could improve on! Please note some things are out of our hands due to the base lorekeeper code! 

 

 

So let’s get onto some basics!


○ Our newbie guide is for the most part done, there are some tweaks to be done. Though it should do its job on guiding you through the new website! If you have any issues or questions please do reach out in the booster chat!

○ We’re missing assets for our design guide, but you can find that here! This should hopefully help those who struggle designing Dextroluma!

○ Our selection of prompts will grow, but for right now we have a steady amount to get you started! You can check out the prompts here or if you’d just like to see all of them in general you may click this link! 

○ Our world index can be found here, with this you can browse pretty much anything! Items, traits and pets!

○ Traits have also been altered to be more streamlined, these should be easily viewed here, If you’d prefer to view by rarity you can do so here. You can also view by category in the dropdown menus, top right!

○ While we’re still in the middle of prettifying this page for ease, you can browse Locations here, with locations comes a pretty fun site feature! Go to your Characters masterlist page, select edit profile and then you can choose where your Dextroluma lives by clicking the location drop down!

○ While we’re on the topic of locations, you may notice region names have been altered! We felt they were a little bland and basic and have given them an overhaul! For ease we have put their past names beside them, so you won’t get lost!

○ Betas will have access to a beta only raffle! Which you can check out here !
Spice Cake will be raffled off to Betas, while Mermaid Cake will be raffled to everyone upon launch!


Please note we are not fully ready and we still have a few things left to complete! This includes:
○ Masterlists and character transfers
○ Information & Guides
○ Shop character busts
○ Assets including traits

changes regarding currency

As we've moved to a website, currency has gone through a lot of changes. The currency you currently have will not transfer to the site, but we will have a special sale in the discord to use up your old Crystals and plenty of ways to earn new ones on site. Regarding owned items and myo slots, please wait for the thread posted by Puffin in the booster chat so we can ensure each item is given out to you!

What to look forward to

Upon launch we’ll be introducing our Special Guest Artists and the designs each of them have made for the 10 year anniversary. These designs will be available to everyone so keep your eyes peeled!

We’re prepping lots of goodies for the future including:

○ New site features and activities!
○ More pets
○ More awards
○ Collectables
○ Monthly raffles

○ Exciting lore drops
And much much more…
