8 February Updates - Menagerie, new donator items

Postby Mike » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:53 am

The menagerie has been added!
Now that the last inventory enhancing feature on our to-do list has been released, we'll be working to get Ultimate Ironman Mode released (and Hardcore Ultimate Ironman Mode shortly after that). The exact release date is yet to be announced, but we're aiming for sometime around 20 - 25 February.

When adding rooms to your player-owned house, you now have the option to add indoor and outdoor menageries for 300M coins.
Unlike OSRS, you can have as many menageries as you want. The amount of pets you can hold in your player-owned house purely depends on your donator rank, rather than the kind of pet house you build inside a menagerie. I could have made the max amount of pets depend on the kind of pet house, but this would have taken me a lot of time to develop and didn't seem to be worth the effort.
Aside from the pet list, all objects in the menagerie are purely decorative and have no actual use (so you can't have pets battle in the arena - sorry).
Regular players can store up to 20 pets in their house, donators up to 50 and premium members can store an unlimited amount of pets (regardless of how many menageries you have).
Storing and withdrawing pets is done from the pet list interface, to bring it up all you have to do is click the 'pet list' object in your menagerie after which you can use the interface as if it were a bank.

Image

In a future update, I would like to give players the ability to have their pets freely roam their house (limited to the first few that are shown in their pet list). However, I didn't want to postpone the menagerie update just to add this fancy feature.



We have also decided to add some new items to our donator store. Several weapons and pieces of equipment, including void sets, are now available for purchase. More items will be added later on. The donator store now has 3 tabs:

Ehmmm, using the exchange rate of 500 donator credits for 1b tells me some prices are off, or is that just me? I mean, divine for 750 credits (1.5b?)

Awesome, menagerie! Thanks a lot.

All the prices are based on the approximate Mbox credit ratio (250 credits for 550M) and the recent GE trading prices for these items. Divines are traded for approximately 1.4B - 2B. Divines were originally going to be 800 credits (= 1780M) but we lowered it to 750 because we didn't want to imply that Divine is better than Elysian purely from costing more.

Buying cash or tickets directly has always been a little less profitable than buying items which is why we don't use those ratios.

EDIT: We also rounded the prices to the nearest multiple of 50. Considering how broad the price ranges are for all these items it really doesn't matter that much.

Ah okay, that's clear! To be honest I wasn't even aware divine was that low in price these days :D

So what your saying is that there was a thread made in regards to suggestions on what to add into the donor shop right? And 90% of the items were not brought up/suggested once although some of the main items sought after to be added such as eucmenical key is not added? *sigh*

This was just a first round of items that we knew wouldn't be an issue. Things like ecumenical keys and the rest of the things you suggested are controversial and either wont happen or need more thought put into their potential effect. I think ecumenical keys would be really cool to put in. But effigies, big nono.

Also we were already planning these additions before the community discussion thread went up. Just because we've made these additions doesn't mean we're done now and everything said in the community discussion will be ignored.
