I for one welcome our new smiley overlords

As promised we’re announcing the winner(s) of the smiley competition today.

We had a lot of great entries, and when it came down to a decision we couldn’t decide which one was better, so we picked three winners!

So without further ado: Presenting  “Kung Fu Master”, “Fox” and “Night vision”.

winners

 

Kung Fu Master was designed by: Tiken.

Sale on Summer packs

Since the weather is actually summer-ish for once (at least here), we thought we’d have a sale on both the summer packs (2011 & 2012). We’re cutting the price in half.

See you in the worlds
MrShoe & MrVoid

Tranquility!

Aloneness in a bottle

Ah, the peace and quiet of the countryside. Now in a bottle!

potion_image

Are you also tired of trying to complete a hard mini with 10 other smilies doing just the same?

You can’t make out yourself in the swarm of smilies!

Well take a zip of the potion of solitude, and feel all alone in the world.

The potion of solitude makes all other players in the world invisible for a duration of 5 minutes.

Even though the other players are invisible they’re still around and they can still see you. You are not protected from zombies or curses, so you may not want to use it in zombie arena worlds. You can still chat with the other players.

Other players will not be able to tell that you are invisible.

The potion has id 13 if you want to turn it off in your worlds.

/reportabuse update

We changed the profile of the report abuse command a bit. It now requires a player name (of the player you wish to report), and a reason (meaning the reason is no longer optional).

Hence a report now has the form:

/reportabuse #playername# #reason#

Future updates

For quite some time we’ve had themed weekly updates all spanning three weeks. Updates usually includes a set of blocks, a smiley and a potion.

These weekly updates takes time away from other tasks we would like to do. And we think the block and smiley selection is quite large already.

So we have decided to cut down on themed updates and instead spend more time on making the game better, faster and more fun.

We will still launch themed packs of blocks, backgrounds and decorations, and we will introduce new smilies and potions. Just not on a weekly basis.

This also means that you’ll see the update notice from time to time, without new features showing up.

Competition Time!

Several players have requested more competitions from us, so we thought we’d start with a little “create-a-smiley-and-get-it-in-the-game” competition:

Prize:

  • The best smiley gets implemented at a magic class you decide (but below 10). And at a cost of 1000 energy. You decide the name, but please don’t make it too long :)
  • The winner smiley for free (ofcourse).
  • 1 month of Builders Club (or 1 month extension if you are already a member).
  • The fanboy smiley if you don’t have it already.

Who can submit: Everybody! But only one smiley per player.

Deadline: May 15th, 2013.

Judges: MrSecretGraphicsGuyWhoDoesAllOfOurGraphics, MrShoe and MrVoid.

Graphics requirements:

Please do not use characters that could be interpreted as copyright infringement or the likes. That means avoid; Comic characters (yeah yeah, we know there’s a superman smiley in there), film characters, litterature characters and stuff like that. Go for the more generic types.

All smilies are boxed in a 16×26 px sprite.

All smilies have a 1 px white outline (which is allowed to be broken in small areas). The outline may have transparency.

The png must be fully transparent where there is no graphics.

All graphical content below pixel 21 (from the top), including the white border is rendered below the ingame floor, so use this as your baseline. Likewise everything above pixel 5 (from the top) will overlap a ceiling. So to stay within the bounds of a block you should go for a 16×16 px smiley including the white border.

If we cannot make your smiley look good ingame, or if it’s too large you can’t win, no matter how good your smiley looks.

Smilies can not be animated.

You can use this .png as a template (right click, save as):

Other updates

Fixed basic gray background block bug

Wizard of Oz?

launchlevel

For the second update in the “farm” theme we introduce two new smilies; “Moo moo” and “Scarecrow”


smilies

Moo moo requires a magic class of 7 and Scarecrow requires a minimum magic class of 9.

Home Worlds

homeworld

 

This update also introduces the concept of “home worlds”. They are a templated world (or pre-filled) that everybody gets. It acts like all your other worlds, you have full owner rights, and you don’t have to keep the templated blocks. Use your home world to give a nice introduction of yourself, as a place to invite guests for cake, a hub for all your other worlds, or just as another playable world, it’s all up to you.

You may have to log in again to get your new home world.

The home worlds dimensions are 40×30 tiles (just enough to fit within the game screen).

Talking Heads (well smilies)

Everybody chats! That’s right, today we’re releasing chat for everybody with the exception of guests.

Please remember that we can, and will, remove chatting rights from players abusing the chat (or even ban them from the game). You can use the /reportabuse command to notify us about abusive behaviour in the chat.

 

Other updates:

We added two new commands that can be used by everybody in any world.
/mute #playername# –  Prevents the player with the specified username from sending you messages in the chat. Others will still be able to see messages from the specified user. Note: /mute is local to a game session.

See you in the worlds!

MrShoe and MrVoid

/unmute #playername# – Removes the player with the specified username from the muted list.

Everybody Amish

level (1)

We know how you all love Farmville and Cow Clicker, so we’re bringing some of that farm feeling to Everybody Edits. No more hell or zombies or warriors of Sparta. Now it’s all about fresh air and green grass!

The first farm update brings a couple of new decorations and a new block, that should guarantee that countryside feeling to the worlds.

How is that for cosy down-to-earth feel-good update?

See you in the worlds!

Final Ancient Greece update

Helen of Sparta

smileyhelen

This update in the Ancient Greece theme introduces Helen of Sparta (or Helen of Troy as some may know her) to the smiley family. Some of our female players have requested specific female smileys, so we hope this one is well accepted. We certainly like it.

Helen of Sparta requires a minimum magic class of 7.

Earn these shields boys!

You know that beautiful shield that appears over your head when you level up? Don’t you wish you could rub it in the noobs face? Well now you can! With the new super awesome Potion of Flaunt, everybody can see just how awesome you are!

The only difference from the level up badge is the flaunt badge does not glow.

The Potion of Flaunt requires a minimum magic class of 3. The id is 12 if you don’t like braggers and want to turn it off.

Builders Club Exclusives

So far the Builders Club Exclusives have been limited to Builders Club doors and gates. Today we’re expanding the Builders Club Exclusive block collection to feature the “sign” block.

sign

The sign block allows the world owner to place signs that display a text message when the player stands on them.

The sign block can only be placed in your own worlds, but there is no limit to how many you can place.

The text input has a limit of 140 characters.

Also new additions to the membership exclusives is:

  • Club members do not lose magic
  • Club members can add up to 40 friends

Please note, that should you get the brilliant idea of putting vulgarity, bullying messages or any other stuff we could find remotely abusive into the sign text boxes we will discard your BC membership with a reference to our terms and conditions. You will not get a refund. You might get banned. Just to make that absolutely clear.

New Command

This update also adds a new command “/reportabuse #reason#”. Use this for reporting signs with inappropriate sign content content The reason parameter is optional.

Sale on Builders Club!

In other news; We’re putting a sale on Builders Club, prices if you get Builder Club now are:

  • 1 month is now 4$ (before 11$)
  • 3 months is now 10$ (before 30$)
  • 6 months is now 18$ (before 54$)

What’s Sparta without Spartans?

level

Last week we started the Ancient Greece/Sparta theme, and brought you the sturdy columns

But what is Sparta without Spartans? As some of you probably have guessed already, this update brings Spartans to Sparta. So lets welcome our Spartan warrior to the EverybodyEdits family.

smiley

The spartan requires a minimum magic class of 8.

Sale on the timbered package

The spartan villagers probably lived in something you could create using the timbered block package (well kind of), so we’re putting a sale on that. If you got gems to spare, be sure to get it!

Featured worlds update
As promised we’re updating the featured worlds to present some of the bot-assisted worlds of Everybody Edits.

To those who are unfamiliar to bot assisted worlds here is a brief explanation:

Bot assisted worlds use 3rd party programs to either change the world appearance (for example the patterns in Yo!Scroll) and/or to store player behavior r stats (an example could be the timers used in the race way worlds. Or the collected items in “FLD DigBot ICANDIGIT”).

The convention is that if the world name says “ON” the bot is alive and kicking, if it says “OFF” it’s not actively being controlled, and most likely not playable. Obviously we hope most of them will be on while they are featured :)

Here’s the list of the new featured worlds (if you feel we left some out that should be here, please let us know).
