  • Badges, Nest Backgrounds, and More!

    Winter landscape with two badge icons in the front. Plant sprout with new here text and elyte with supporter.

    I am happy to report a handful of updates have just went live!

     

    Badges

    You can now find badges around the site. Badges can be favorited so that they show up on your forum posts and your user profile. Currently there are 8 to find, with many more planned! I won't tell you how you acquire them, so play around and discover them all.

    A big thank you to Aaron for this update. This marks his first contribution as a programmer to the site and the first code update not done by me. Hope to have more in the future.

    And a big thank you to PepperHead as well for the art for these including coming with ideas with just general direction to go on. 

    Timezone Selection

    You can now set whatever timezone you want from your account settings page. Setting your timezone will affect time events which right now would be if you set Dynamic as the option for layout, though more things could come into play in the future.

    Icons Updated

    I acquired a couple assets and updated Eliyo coin, elyte, and breed heart indicator to be more attractive. The previous ones were made by me and really meant to be temporary. So they've been updated. Hope you enjoy the new ones.

    Daily Bonus Modal

    Modal popup with earned coins displayed along with yesterday and tomorrow.

    Previously there was a notification to alert you of your daily bonus acquired. This has been updated to feel more rewarding with a modal on login that shows what you earned today, yesterday, along with what you will earn tomorrow and the next time you'll earn an elyte.

     

    Default Elon Background

    You now have a couple selection options for your elon backgrounds. The original older one, a plain light one, a plain dark one, and a seasonal one. This can be set for your entire account along with each elon individually. 

    Being it's winter, this snow one is the current background applied if you select seasonal. 

    Snow covered mountains with blue sky.

     

    Note, this is part 1 for elon background updates. I won't spoil part 2 for now, but stay tuned!

     

    That's it for now with more to come. As always let me know if you run into any problems.

  • New Layout, Yokios, and Breeding Feature!

    Snowy village with some different colored yokios on top

    A late happy holidays for Christmas and New Years! Sorry for the delay on that, I wanted to post it with an update or two and it took longer than planned to get things ready for release. But I have been working hard to get these updates to you and am happy to report they are finally here. And in time for Valentine's Day!

    I did push most of the updates this morning so you may have noticed these already. 

     

    New Theme, Snowy Village

    Finally a new theme has been released for Eliyo. A winter village fitting the colder season of Eliyo. The theme is currently the default theme when you aren't logged in, but you'll need to update your layout choice from your account settings if you want to set the theme for yourself. Both a day and night theme are included as is the case with the original. And as always you can customize the layout further yourself by entering your custom css in the Custom CSS field also found in your account settings (click the gear to the right on your name at the top of the screen).

     

    New Yokio Herbs

    A couple new yokios herbs have been added to the game. An Azure Yokio and Rose Yokio. When used these guarantee that you'll get a male or female litter respectively. They have the same success rate as normal yokios (note yokios are not used up for failed breed attempts) and do not affect litter size in anyway, just determine what sex your offspring will be. These are a premium item and can be brought at the Vincent's General Goods for 10 Elytes each.

     

    New Breeding Feature

    And finally a new breeding feature that allows you to easily breed your elons with the public or friends. Set your elon to allow people to request breedings with them. Options include the everyone or just your friends (people you are friends with). You can set different prices for a failed and successfully attempts (as elons can still refuse to breed) as well. 

    Note the requester is the one who must have a yokio and chooses which yokio herb to use as well they are the ones that get the offspring.

    I hope you all enjoy and please let me know if there are any issues so I can get them corrected!

     

    Final Note

    The Christmas treats have been removed from the Bakery and the Valentine's treats and plushies are available for a limited time once again. Enjoy!

  • Happy Thanksgiving! And other News!

    White Zorvic happy with pick toes ear tufts and eyes.

    New toes marking has been released. 

     

    Marking Shroom

    Vincent's is also stocking a limited time Elyte item that is a marking shroom. Use this shroom on an elon and they'll gain a random marking! You can't choose the marking or color you get nor is there currently anyway to remove markings, so choose which elon you put a marking on carefully.

    New Items and Quest

    There are a handful of new desserts available stocking in Gertrude's Bakery. With all the new deserts she may need a hand gathering some ingredients to create them all! You'll notice a new button 'Chat With Gertrude' on the Bakery page which allows you to chat with her and sometimes start a quest to get some items for her in exchange for coins and/or breads.

  • Basic Apothecary Quest

    Currently active mushroom quest with 3 dark stem mushrooms shown.

    You can now chat with Rose at the Apothecary including accepting a quest that lets you give her some mushrooms in exchange for coins. The quantity and type of mushrooms changes when you accept a quest from her depending on what she needs right then, but for the moment she is only asking for dark stem shrooms. 

    Have a great quest idea for another npc (or more for Rose)? Post your ideas down below!

  • Expanded Drag and Drop Feature

    Show dragging and dropping elon to nest section to move it there on nest screen.

     

    I've updated the drag and drop sort feature so that you can now drag and drop elons to your group and nest sections to easily sort them.

    When you hover over the nest partition, it'll also open up and list the sections underneath it. You can't do the hover swap affect while dragging an elon however, so you'll need to open up the partition with the section you want to drop the elon into before you pick them up. I worked on getting it to work together for a while, but there were some issues getting it to work so I dropped it in favor of getting this released for you all.

    Hope you all enjoy!

  • Better Needs Handling and Random Events

    Holey Wallet, Oh no! Looks like there's a hole in your wallet. You've lost 19 coins.

    Sleep and Food Needs

    Did a lot of reworking on the system for when you are away and log back in and elons should be a lot easier to care for now.

    Food

    I had previously updated the required food amount elons needed each day to be greatly reduced, but missed updating a location for it, and so it wasn't working as intended, but now it should be. I also updated everyones food bin so you should have a little stock to start with. Along with that I increased elons current food levels so they are close to full or full depending on what their level was before the update. 

    Let me know if things still seem off but hopefully this will help it not be so burdensome to take care of your elons.

    Sleep

    Completely reworked this code so that elons should typically be awake and rested after you leave and come back to the site. I know sleeping elons has been a huge problem for people and while I had tried tweaking the code in the past it's still been an issue. So hopefully this time it'll be working a lot better. Of course some tweaking may be needed, but overall should be better. 

     

    Random Events

    There will now be random events that can happen as you play the game. There are just a few so far with more to be added. This can include a couple detrimental ones, fairly minor amounts, but loss of coin and health is a possibility. Otherwise you can find coins or very rarely a Elyte. 

    Feel free to make suggestions for some other random event ideas below!

  • Downtime and Other News

    Little rocking horse item

    Downtime

    Hey everyone, you may have noticed the server went down for a bit and I wanted to assure you it was just a server issue and the game is not being shut down. We ran out of disk space. I have for now just increased the server size, but plan on clearing out logs and possibly doing even more automaticed log pruning to keep them from filling up too much more. 

    Logs are nice as they help me track the game and see how it's being used as well as address issues as they come up, but it also significantly adds a lot of bloat to the server.

     

    Other News

    I also wanted to apologize for my absense the past few months. Honestly I have just been a bit burnt out on everything, and with Eliyo being regulated to hobby status needed to take a step back for a bit and recharge. But I am still planning on updates for Eliyo and have worked on different items including the questing system in this time (it's getting there but not ready yet), the pace is just a little slower being I do have to work a full time job and have other life responsibilities as well.

  • Happy Valentine's Day

    A couple days behind but happy Valentine's Day! The bakery now has a number of new cookies you can find including some that will only be available for a limited time so get them while you can! These will likely only be available until the end of the month so keep an eye out if you are trying to collect them.

    In addition the toy shop is stocking some limited time pink Valentine plushies which can be seen above. 

    For all those active in the two weeks enjoy a free Red Velvet cookie!

  • Tutorial Extended - 2nd Starter Elon

    The starting tutorial has now been extended! For those who have already completed the tutorial, which will be most of you reading this, you can still continue from where you left off. 

    After picking your first elon Clayton still directs you to the battle arena, but will also tell you to return after 5 battles. He also gifts a couple potions to help out with those first battles,

    which I will be gifting to everyone active in the last few weeks so you don't miss out on these. He also tells you to return to him after the 5 battles. If you've already completed 5 battles, then you won't need to do five more, but you will need to do one more, as it only checks at the end of battle whether you have completed the 5 needed. 

    However once you do you can head over and pick a second Elon from Clayton. 

    This screen has had a slight change as you can now toggle and show the elemental detail of the elon before picking it. This will hopefully make it it a little easier to know the strengths and weaknesses of the chosen elon beforehand.

    Once you pick another elon Clayton will give you some advice to breed along with a free Yokio Herb to get you started!

    After a successful breed attempt the tutorial will clear out (for now at least) and so also be removed from the navigation.
