  • 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.

  • Kickstarter Launching February 5th!

    Lavinth map in background with preat elon center stage

    Kickstarter is going to Launch on Tuesday February 5th. Less than 2 weeks away. Some of you may realize this is a little later than we had initially mentioned which was January 29th, however we are pushing it back a week in order to be better prepared and to better advertise that it's coming up!

    But you can view the preview page today! And see what we have planned.

    Visit our preview page: http://www.eliyo.net/kickstarter

     

     

    Other Updates Since our Last News Post

    - Updated using items from an elons profile so it saves which item you have selected. So if you select to use a Rope Toy, when you open up the menu again, the Rope Toy will still be selected. This should make it a littler easier to feed and play with your elons directly.

    - The forums have been updated to under the username there are quick links to get to their cabinet, shop, and group.

    - The Nest Quick Stock has been added to the left hand navigation

    - Account Setting has been removed from the side bar. You can find it next to your name to the right, the little gear icon instead. 

    - Meal Center has been added to the explore. You can now get free food once a day! Should be a full meal. 

    - Battling flee and backpack have been swapped around and there is now a confirmation for fleeing so it isn't as easy to acciddently do so. You may need to refresh for this to work correctly.

  • Down Time - Server Issues

    I know some of you experienced some down time for a couple hours (last night Eliyo time). I apologize for the interruption, the server got a little full with all the extra activity recently. However it has been upgraded now. I will also be doing some clean up later today to remove unnecessary files and add in some more routine clean up tasks to help mitigate this in the future.
