Hazardous, yet merry worlds!

This week we have launched 4 items in the shop!

hazard

First of, we finish the Jungle Theme with death and respawning! and who better to avoid dying in jungle ruins than an archaeologist? ;-)

Checkpoints

The first new brick is a checkpoint. When you touch a checkpoint it will turn green, and that is you new respawn location (if you haven’t touched a checkpoint, the default world spawnpoint is your respawn location). It works pretty much like you would expect.

Hazards 

The first hazard we have introduced is the spikes. If you touch the spikes you will blow up :-) And then respawn at the latest checkpoint. Again, pretty much like you would expect.

Spikes are the first hazard, but lava have been suggested countless times, and that will probably be added soon.

Commands

We have added a couple of commands:

“/respawn”  – Respawns you at the latest checkpoint.

“/respawnall”  – The same, but for all players (for world owners only).

So

The game mechanic (checkpoints and respawning) can already be made just using portals. But the new bricks makes it easier to make (and understand for players), and also prettier. And of course, the death animation really makes it funnier to see other people die ;-)

 

Christmas 2012

But there is more. We also launched the christmas pack for 2012, containing large gift wrapping paper and ribbons.

Very neat :-)

Have a merry christmas!

We are happy to present Builders Club!

Builders Club

As a member of the Builders Club, you get unlimited access to all blocks! (Except the Diamond Block). It has a monthly subscription fee, and you can buy or extend your membership by purchasing Club Membership subscriptions in the shop.

When you sign up, you will get a unique membership number. The lower the number, the longer you have been in the club. Even if your membership expires, you will keep the number, so if you join again, you will have the same membership number. Your badge will also have a red banner on it, to show you are a club member.  You can always see you membership status on the large profile. Click your name in the main profile on the front page to take your there.

Besides access to (almost) all blocks, you will also receive new worlds. Which worlds are based on your subscription. Read more here: everybodyedits.com/club.

As long as you are a member of the club, you can place as many blocks as you like inside worlds, including portals,switches, coingates , doors etc. If your membership expires, you get to keep the worlds and the blocks placed inside them. But from then on, you can only place the the blocks you had bought before.

All new block packages that will be made is also included in the Club Membership.

Also, Club Members get access to Builder Club Doors and Gates:

Club Builder Blocks

These are only activated by Builders Club Members!

 

Beta

Beta users still exists, but it is no longer possible to become a beta-member. Builders Club members will also have access to test out new features, just like the beta members.

In order to let the existing beta-user test the Builders Club out, they each receive 1 month free subscription to the Builders Club. When the membership expires, they will of course still be beta-members.

All in all

We made this new feature in order to focus more on building good worlds. As it is now, new users have almost no chance of getting all the blocks, but this is a way to use all packs.

This also means that Builder Club members will be able to build exactly the worlds they want, without being restricted by the amount of blocks they own. This will lead to more inventive design and better looking worlds.

Welcome to the Builders Club and see you in the worlds!

Update:

  • Builders Club Aura can now be colored using potions.
  • Diamond is available in the shop again.
  • We added two new commands: /giveedit “username” and /removeedit “username”. With this you can give edit rights to a single user.
  • Players in the ingame sidechat now has level and Builder Club marked.

[Notice:]

Some beta-users do not want their free Builders Club trial. If you want out, just send me an email. Beta members member-numbers are now prefixed with “TRY”. If the membership is extended, a real member number is given.

Deep Jungle

This week we venture further into the jungle!

Nice jungle-backgrounds and decorations to set the mood. Oh, and also vines, which can be climbed (like ladders).

Exploring some deep jungle ruins

 

Also in this update:

  • We added titles to the Magic Classes. So If you are Magic Class 1, your title is Amatuer. If you are Magic Class 12, you are a Grandmaster :-)
  • Open worlds are added again (look for “open” on the world sorting menu).
  • “Login with Facebook” have been removed. This is due to new facebook terms (http://developers.facebook.com/policy/)
    1.13.b

You must not use Canvas apps to promote or link to game sites off of Facebook, and must not use emails obtained from us to promote or link to desktop web games off of Facebook.com (effective December 5, 2012).
    Users who used to play on everybodyedits.com with their facebook account now have to play it on facebook.
  • Minor fix: Open worlds now recieve woots correctly.
  • Minor fix: Magic bar in profiles now fill up properly.
  • Minor fix: Chat textfield no longer overlaps with player names.

Jungle Theme

It has been some time since the last theme, but we are glad to present:

Jungle!

This week, we have ancient jungle ruins, and a headhunter smiley. This is how it looks ingame:

MrShoes Jungle Ruins

I have seen a lot of labyrinths in EE, and I think this package fits very well with that.

 

Also in this update:

  • New world-list. Search and refresh have been moved to the top to make it look better and give more space to worlds.
  • “MyWorlds” filter option now only shows your worlds (and a “buy more worlds here” button)

 

See you in the worlds!

Oh, extended sale

We have decided to extend the sale a while longer! So go nuts in the shop.

Uh, extended sale! What a surprise!

Also:

  • Woots now decay faster. This should make worlds move up and down the world list faster.
  • The last sorting method you used is the remembered and used again when you return.
  • “Shuffle” is not locked, so you can press it more times to shuffle again.

See you in the worlds!

Black Friday, and more energy!

Like last year, it is time for Black Friday!

This means that everything is half price in the shop.

Only want to spend energy? Well then, just collect more Magic. Higher classes now have more Max Energy!

NOTE! A class gives you more max energy, so class 2 users has 205 max energy. But if you are an old user with more max energy than this, you will have the highest amount.

 

Also:

You can now sort the open worlds as you like! Want the most wooted, most played, or the one with most players in it?

Happy magic and shopping. See you in the worlds!

Magic Coins, Magic Class and Woots!

Finally, after testing the woot system, it is now released to everybody!

Only thing is, we renamed it ;-)

So, welcome to a world full of finding magic coins,  gaining new magic class!

Magic Coins

Magic Coins can be found in all worlds in Everybody Edits! Each time you collect a coin, there is a chance it is a magic coin!

When you find one, the coin will go to you magic coin collection, and the magic will also fill up your Magic bar!

The magic bar is in the top right corner of the screen:

Magic Bar

However, the magic is unstable, and after a while it fades. The small clock shows when the next magic is going to fade.

Magic Class

A Magic Class Badge

The current amount of magic you have decides Magic Class. The more magic you have, the higher Magic Class. Each Magic Class has a badge. The higher the Magic Class, the cooler the badge :-)

But if you do not keep collecting Magic Coins, your magic will wither, and you will go down a Magic Class.

Shopping with your Magic Class

You need a minimum of Magic Class 3 to buy this potion

Your Magic Class allow you to buy certain items!

For example, in order to buy the Potion of Green Aura, you need to be at least Magic Class 3. You can always use the potions you buy, even if your magic withers and you have a lower Magic Class than you need to buy the potion.

Woot!

The animation when you give a woot away!

Besides collecting magic, the other new thing is the woot system, which has not changed since last week :-)

Every day you log in, you get 5 free woots you can give away. These woots are showed as a star with a bow on them in the buttom ingame bar. When you are in a world you like, you can give it a woot.  Worlds with many woots are displayed in the top of the list in the lobby.

Butwoots are still a fleeting substance, and they wither away just like magic. So the world will loose its woots over a couple of days. That means, that the worlds which are on top of this list today, might not be tomorrow.

So!

Enjoy hunting Magic Coins and gaining Magic Class! We are relly looking forward to seeing you in the worlds :-)
