Update:

This update is now completed and everything should be back up and running.

Three new Avatar Item Categories have been added: Accessory, Tail, and Aspect.

The Avatar item Category, "Back", has been changed to "Cloak".

Existing items were updated to their new slots if the item changed. If you had these items saved in Outfits, they should have automatically been moved to their proper location.

Many other adjustments and fixes were applied where items had errant pixels, weren't loading correctly, had improper item icon images, etc.


If you have any issues seeing old images, it is most likely just a cached image. You will have to try clearing your browser cache or just slightly adjusting your Avatar in any way to load a new image. An easy way to do this is to just adjust a single color by a single RGB value and that will work.

Additional Note: The main URL for Avatar images has changed from www.sylestia.com/image_builder_avatar_test.php to www.sylestia.com/image_builder_avatar.php. This will have left existing Avatar image links untouched. For example, various links posted onto the Forums or elsewhere. However, if you want to load these links into the Wardrobe, you will have to remove the "_test" from your URL before pasting it. Otherwise, it won't load.


If you have any other questions or issues, please let me know and I'll take a look.

Enjoy!




Original Post:

Hello, all!

We are looking to expand the total number of Avatar Item Outfit categories from 6 to 9. We are adding the following new categories:

Accessory: Will be items on the Avatar's back that are neither cloaks nor tails

Tail: Will be items on the Avatar's back that constitute as tails - coming from the backside of the Avatar's waist.

Aspect: Will be items that stand/are propped up behind the entire Avatar.


We are then also changing the current "Back" category to just "Cloak", which will be items that constitute as cloaks, capes, shawls, etc. Once this process is complete, all existing affected items will be automatically moved into their proper categories.



The goal of these changes is to provide much more customization options for players. At this point in time, the "Back" and "Background" categories are very clustered with lots of different items. We feel these items would be better utilized split up into the additional categories listed above. This should increase the demand for these items as now more can be used at once while also giving players much more customization options to create even more dynamic Avatars.


This is a bit of a messy process and may take a couple of days to fully finish processing. During this period of time, certain functionalities of the Wardrobe may be disabled. Additionally, various Avatar images may break or not load properly. As always, I will try and limit the impact on existing systems as much as I can. Don't worry though, in the end, everything will settle properly into place.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post below!

Fantastic! Looking forward to seeing these new changes... i hope the tails wont clip through the cloaks though. Layering seems difficult to me, but im sure things are being handled well : )

This is exciting!
With more options now, I think I will explore the Idea of making my Avi more exciting like some of my friend on the Site do. =)
As always Krin, keep up the great job you and your Team are doing on the Site!
