Ascension Arrives!

The first ascension is here! Ascensions allow your creatures to transform into more powerful forms, attaining higher natural abilities and… perhaps some other mysterious new skills? Combining one Fang of the Imagined, one Paw of the Imagined, one Cortex of the Imagined, and 500 energy together using your crafting temple and a creature with a crafting level of 20 or higher, you can now create a Balanced Ascension Schema! This mystical blueprint for powering up your creature’s abilities will allow you to transform it physically, and at the same time increase its natural stats by 20 points in any combination you like! In order to utilize the schema, though, your creature must have obtained 200 of each type of victory point. Once you’ve met all of the requirements, you’ll see a shiny new “Ascend!” option in your creature’s profile, located in the Home App.

There is a new Necessity Pack available (v4.11) which will be auto sent when you wear an older version of the HUD or creature attachment, or can be picked up behind the shop on the main sim.

We hope to provide many more types of ascensions in the future, giving you guys TONS of options and ways to create awesome creatures tailored to your play style! This is a huge milestone for Krafties and we couldn’t be more excited. However, because of the enormous effect this change has on the game, there are bound to be issues popping up in different areas. We’ll be ready to tackle these as they come up, so all you have to do is let us know when you see something strange! This new feature has been years in the making and is still nowhere near where we want it to end up, so expect lots of tweaks and fine tuning as we see how you guys use the new stuff.

Thank you guys SO much, and have fun!

Krafties – Fifth Birthday Week Long Event!

Five years?!?! Five wonderful years! Five years of fun and surprises, with many more to come! We have some HUGE plans in store to celebrate this momentous occasion, and we’re kicking it off right with birthday cakes and flash events for an entire week! Birthday cakes will drop from defeated creatures, and when consumed will give all crafts completed within 30 minutes two times more crafting xp than they would normally net! Alongside that, flash events will be running back to back to back, with a new one starting right after the previous one ends. Even we can’t predict what the future holds, but there will ALWAYS be some sort of special boost or event going on throughout the week!

On top of that, a very special, long awaited feature just may pay us all a visit and change the entire landscape of Krafties, so be on the lookout for something AMAZING! 

Thank you all so very, very much for supporting Krafties. Time and time again you show just how amazing our community is, and we want to do everything in our power to show you guys how much we appreciate you. So, as always, have fun!

Limited Edition MerStufflies and SharkStufflies – Fishing Approaches!

The next limited edition Kraftie… er.. Krafties, have arrived!!! 

We’re doing something a little different this time around! This LE release showcases not one, but TWO types of limited edition creatures, each with 3 different coats to collect. Even better, the funds from these guys are going toward developing the long awaited Krafties fishing system! Clicking the sign above the vendor, you can view the milestones we need to hit to develop different features. The more creatures sold, the better we can make the upcoming fishing system! There may also be some fun, zany milestones in there, so be sure to check it out!

A display in the middle of the vendors tracks and displays how many bears have been sold, along with previous and upcoming milestones and what they entail. Paying either of the vendors will get you a creature (either MerStufflie or SharkStufflie, depending on the vendor) with one of three random coats that can be seen above each display.

Each Stufflie will have a +5 for each natural stat, and all will be level 1. They have a special soul (either Mermaid or Shark, depending on the vendor used) complete with unique spells not found on any other type, and all have matching affinity bodies. The vendors are available in front of the main store, and will only be available from July 8th until August 8th. They are priced at L$2,000.

 

 A NOTE FROM THE DEVELOPER

Kris here! So, this is new. You may be asking yourself why we are doing this Limited Edition fund-raiser for a new feature when we’ve never done anything like this before. I want to bring you guys awesome new features, and I want to do it quickly! We’re going to be experimenting with things like this to see what we can do, together, to make the the best possible version of Krafties! We’ve seen some amazing growth recently and we’d like to keep on growing and making more and more things for you guys to enjoy. With the new HUD system in place, and the servers running easily accessible languages, Krafties can now hire both people with experience in Second Life and people who have never heard of it! This means the pool of developers and artists is now much larger for us to choose from.

You guys are really what keeps this game, and myself, going strong. Thank you so much, and remember to have fun!

Coats, Codices, Manuscripts And More!

KraftiesCoatsBlogImageCreatures with exotic coats have been reported over the past week, with new variations appearing all the while! These coats offer an exciting new look to the species you already know and love. After capturing these newcomers, their markings stay put throughout the elemental soul bonding process, taking on differing color combinations and patterns depending on the element/coat combination. Time to find your favorite! New coats will be added as frequently as they can be made, but more on that later! Onto the next exciting addition…

Scrolls can now be crafted into manuscripts and codices! Due to the inundation of requests  we’ve received that we minimize the amount of clicking you guys have to do when using scrolls, these new items have been born. Crafting together ten scrolls of any type will result in one manuscript of that type, and in turn crafting together ten of those manuscripts results in one codex. Not only do these new items give massive crafting experience when created, crafting scrolls together in this way results in a net boost to the amount of mental experience doled out as well! You will, however, have to have a creature with crafting level 10 to create manuscripts, and a crafting level of 25 to create codices.

We’re incredibly happy with these new milestones, and we hope you are too! Coats in particular are a HUGE undertaking, which is one reason we’ve waited this long to bring them to you guys. Even with some workflow changes and new custom tools created to help in making the textures, we’re still dealing with (on average) seven textures that have to be made per species, per element, per coat. As we add more elements, species, and coats you can see how this is going to grow, and exponentially at that! We’re currently looking at almost 4,000 textures that make up our lovable Krafties, and that number is going to go up quickly. Sound daunting? We’re definitely up to the challenge, but we need your help to do it! An app is currently being developed that will allow our player base to submit, vet, and fund new coat ideas. This will not only give you guys the ability to directly influence the game, but also allow us to pump out new content for you guys faster than ever. Be on the lookout!

So get out there and catch, craft, and battle! And most importantly, have fun!

Tricornixx!

TricornixxBlogImageTricornixx are here! These wild, mystic type creatures peacefully wander all across the Krafties realm. They form small herds, spending most of their day grazing, galloping, and frolicking across plains and plateaus in their tight knit groups. These normally peaceful creatures won’t run from a fight, however. Their fierce pride and bravery is matched only by their strength and stamina. A handler should be wary lest they make an enemy of a nearby herd.

Tricornixx should begin spawning after home temples have been re-rezzed, or within 24 hours of this blog post!

This creature design was submitted to us by Krafties player and friend Mogull! Not only did Mogull include the awesome name for the species alongside a great description, but he also added some wonderful art: Tricornix

The art was so inspiring, in fact, that we decided to get this creature out there for all of you to enjoy right away! A HUGE thank you goes out to Mogull. Players will be able to view some more of his art in the voting app shortly. We’re excited to see more from you Mogull!

To all our Krafties players, thank you for the many awesome idea submissions we’ve received. It helps us a lot, and the passion you show is just the motivation we need to keep churning out new things for you guys. For those of you who don’t know, we have idea submissions at http://krafties.ideascale.com, and you can submit your creature concepts in front of the energy chest!

We’d also like to note that a more realistic creature head movement feature has recently been added to the game, breathing new life into your Krafties. Features like this are always rolling out, so keep your eyes peeled for even more neat things coming up!

Enjoy the new addition, and have fun!

Necessity Pack v4.1 Is Now Available!

There’s a brand new necessity pack release, and it brings some very exciting new features to Krafties!

First, the new HUD will now display when there’s a flash event going on without needing to open an app. Whenever a flash event is happening, your HUD will display a lightning bolt over the Krafties logo. Hopefully this change makes your lives a little easier!

Now, onto the main events! (Please note that these next features are currently in ALPHA, so players may experience a few minor bugs)

CharacterPlayerProfileBlogPicKrafties characters! In your player profile, you’ll now see your player contact card. Currently this consists of your username and a “selfie” of your Krafties character. What is this character business, you ask? Click the square on the left hand side of your card and you’ll see! This opens up the character creation tools, where you can create a representation of yourself out of a myriad of different body part/accessory styles and colors. We suggest using either the “Random Male” or “Random Female” option until you get something close to what you’re wanting, then customizing from there!

CharacterCreationBlogPic

And now, the second spectacular addition: Krafties friends! In the home app you’ll notice a brand new section. Clicking the Friends button will open up a window where you are able to send out friendship invitations, check to see if you’ve received any invitations, view a list of your current friends (where you can view their characters, their profiles, send them private messages, or remove them), and see a list of all your friends’ recent activities in Krafties! Your friends list will also show up when you go to transfer Bondeds, Unbondeds, Souls or Items from your HUD, so you can quickly choose someone from your friends list instead of typing their full name.

FriendsAreaProfileBlogPic

We’re extremely excited about these new additions because they represent a huge step for Krafties as a game. Expect to see lots more things to do with both your characters and your friends in the near future!

As a final note, today is the last day to purchase the limited edition Easter Fooflie available on the main sim so get them while they’re here!

Thank you all for supporting Krafties. Have fun!
