Hello and Welcome to Eliyo!
If you want to get started right away, then Visit Clayton in Lavinth, a city in the world of Eliyo. Clayton is a breeder of sorts and may be willing to help you out. He knows a lot about taking care of elons too.
If you prefer to read more before jumping in then you can continue by reading the Getting Started Guide now and then visit Clayton when you’re ready. You could also visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to get some quick answers.×

More Updates! Activities, Breeding, and More!
Made some more updates!
Item use on Profile
You can now feed, play with, and use other items directly from your elons profile. This should make it easier to interact with elons in your nest. The text for feeding and playing with an elon has also been updated to be a bit more helpful and hopefully more interesting.
There is now a notification to let you know when activities happen along with a brand new page for it. The older page accessed from your elons profile is also still available to just view that elons recent activities, but it has been updated to be more attractive and easy to read. I also fixed a few bugs and issues with activities. You've probably already noticed this yourselves but figured I'd put in a notice. :)
Nest and Group View
Now shows badly injuired elons with the sad pose instead of content when awake.
This has been updated to be a bit harsher overall. If you don't know recovery is on a curve starts with needing a couple days recovery and infinitely goes up as more offspring are born. The curve is the same, but I have updated so less offspring are needed for each increase. So make sure you plan our your breedings carefully! You should still be able to get plenty of babies before huge wait times hit you, and this should help balance things out a bit more.
The breeding code has also been tweaked a bit, probably won't notice too much of a difference in what offspring look like, but markings should be carried more frequently. You also aren't likely to get full marking strength when only one parent has a marking. Note though that if a marking is visible it always 'shows' at full strength. But it may not carry on very well when further bred. If you use a White Cap Shroom on your elon, you'll be able to see it's hidden genetic information such as carried markings, colors, and strengths.
And some other minor updates too. Enjoy!
Many Different Updates
So you may have noticed some changes throughout this week, I have released many different updates, most smaller, some bug fixes, and mostly just things to make things more seemless and easier to use. At least that's the goal.
Some of the updates include,
- Added a new search in the marketplace so you can search by item name. This means you can search for specific items in the marketplace. You still have to explore a bit to find the best deal however. You can search by the full name, or a partial name.
- Added the elemental type during battle when swapping out elons and the gender.
- Updated the bred animal page, includes icons on the parents, better styling, removing the level for babies since that's not relevant.
- Added a few more notification types so you get notifications when someone sends you an elon transfer request and when someone buys an item from your shop. More to come.
- When you visit an elons profile page it tells you when the visit increases the relationship. Visiting your elons at least once a day helps increase your relationship with them!
- Updated the purchase item text to properly show the item name when purchased from in town shops.
- Updated the marketplace image and a bit of the styling.
- Some other minor items and other things I am forgetting about.

Downtime and UpgradeI apologize for the downtime earlier. I had to upgrade the site. We run on Laravel and I finally made the upgrade from 4 to 5. Was in the works for a bit and wanted to get it out. But I also had to upgrade the servers php and mysql versions to support 5. Overall I am happy to have this out of the way so I can get back to creating updates for you all.You may also notice your notifications are gone, so check on any subscribed threads you had and your sales logs for any of the updates you may have missed. This was necessarily since the notification system was also upgraded between laravel versions, it's a better system, but not really compatible with the older one and wouldn't have been feasible to transfer the notifications.In addition to that I have also made some much needed updates to the battle system. Nothing major, but just wanted to streamline some things and overall make the experience more enjoyable. I'll let you go a head and discover the exact updates for yourselves. Let me know what you think.As well, if you notice any weird errors or issues please report them right away. It would be most helpful if you could provided a screen shot and the time when it happened (so I can check logs). If for some reason you aren't able to contact me on here (maybe that's the error) then please send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you!
Ocelot Marking Released!
The ocelot marking is currently available! You can now find them on wild elons or create custom elons with the Ocelot marking. This marking is modaled after the ocelot cat. I love how it turned out, hope you all enjoy it as well. Would love to see some examples below of ones you've caught, created, or bred with the new marking!
And here are some examples.
I've made some updates to the private messaging system. Back button functionality should work as expected now. Spaces and line breaks are also preserved when messages are sent. It's a fairly minor update overall but should make messages better overall. You can also use html in your messages, but I haven't added the editor yet so any code will have to be hand typed for now.
More updates to come! Hope you enjoy.
Two New Markings! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Hello everyone hope you all have been able to enjoy your Christmas time. I have been able to take a break for a bit and recharge which has been great. And I come baring a new update that I think you will all love. And that is two new markings!
Patches and merle are now available to find on wild elons and through the custom demo. This should open up a lot more breeding possibilities and I hope you will all enjoy them. Some examples below!
Next Phase and Sale!Next Phase for Eliyo - NPC TournamentsIt's been great having players and I'm glad to see so many people enjoying Eliyo so far, however Eliyo is far from complete. Future goals include multiple elon battles (multiple enemies and multiple user elons), player versus player, and tournaments to name a few. Non player tournaments are the next focus which will give goals and give a reason to level and train your elons! There will be an easier track and a harder one which will require more skill and strategy to win to benefit more casual players as well as harder core players.Of course all of these require programming which takes time, but I am pretty excited to get started and working towards these goals and am open to discussion in what direction you the players want to take.
Sale Until End of the Month!And to help further development, Elytes will be set for sale over the next couple weeks so that any elytes purchased during that time frame will net an additional 15%! Any money spent is appreciated as that's what will allow me to continue to develop this great game for everyone.For those that aren't able to put into a game that is okay too. I know what it's like to not have money to spend and sometimes not even enough for the basics and I want Eliyo to be a place where everyone can have fun and enjoy the game without having to spend on it.Anyway like I mentioned to begin with tournaments are the next feature planned so feel free to discuss it below your ideas or to ask any questions below as I go into the planning phases.
New plushies can be found in Adlwin's toy shop in town! There a couple elyte only options to help support the game, but most of them are for sale for coins. All will only be available for a limited time however, so get them while you can! Some more wooden flutes have been added as well, so keep an eye for them as well but they are available more long term.
Happy Halloween everyone. I hope you all have a fun and safe time. For those who have or are getting candy door to door always remember to check it for any holes or tampering. Stay safe!
For those who prefer a more in door experience or just want to do something fun check out munchies a mini game I created a bit ago for a contest on virtual pet list.
It's all browser based so any progress will be lost on refresh. Enjoy the plushies and check back soon as most will be added to Eliyo for a limited time!
Customize the Layout!
You can now add your own custom css to be loaded on all the pages to make the layout how you want. You can change the color or whatever you want really. This code is only seen by you, so there are no limitations to it except your own ability.
To change go to your settings on the side bar, then under the layout section there is a new block for custom css. So put your css right in there. You'll need to refresh the page to actually see changes you make since updating doesn't refresh it.
The settings page
To change the layout based on the time cycle you can use the class day or night which is attached to the body tag.
HTML Enabled on Eliyo!
Two updates in one day so don't miss the one below!
You can now use html on the forums, your signature, profile, and elon profiles! You can add links, images, lists, and more to make your posts and profiles more presentable. You can find guides html guides online pretty easily, but to get started you can look over the guide I have for my other game below.
Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
Important You are not allowed to use html to try and cover up any content of other players or try to change the layout in anyway.
If you feel like a tag, attribute, or css property should be enabled that isn't, feel free to ask about it on the suggestions forums. This doesn't guarantee anything, but I am open to discussion.
Hope you all enjoy! :)
Clayton Now Buys and Sells Elons!
Clayton will now buy elons from you and sell them to other players, and conversely you can purchase elons from him. His pricing takes a couple factors into account including age, level, and innate ability. Elons sold to Clayton that do not sell after a while (at least 3 weeks) may be released if not sold to other players.
Important! Activities Temporarily Disabled
So ran into an issue which I am sure many of you did as well on login with erroring. I am looking into the issue more thoroughly now (going through the logs) but have disabled activities on login for now so that any login issues shouldn't be happening anymore. Sorry about that!
Activities and Raspberries
You may have noticed a link on your elon profile, 'Recent Activities'. This is now functioning as planned. Group elons will do an activity every hour and it will be recorded here. They can do a variety of activities including exploring for items or crying at your for attention! So check out your activity logs to find out what your elons have been up to recently or learn where that random apple came from or what happened to that banana. Raspberries have also been added to the game and to a handful of battle arenas so be on the look out for that! There are black, red, white, yellow, and orange raspberries available. A thanks to our artist @muskratte for the raspberries.
