Welcome, ladies and gents!

Want to get your pets in a Seed Dev Game?

Well step right up!

I sound like a carnival game person don’t I

Anyways

I’m planning a new update for Pet Care Simulator, and I had an idea that I couldn’t stop thinking about, so I decided to run with it.

1 - The Update

First, a small section about the update itself.

The update (V0.6 - The Bronze Winter Update) will be released sometime in late December or early January most likely
This update introduces three fun new features:

1 - Pet Series

Pet Series is a new way of categorizing pets, beyond rarity.

As you know, there are currently four rarities: Free, Common, Rare and Legendary.

I also have five new Series planned:
Spring
Summer
Autumn
Winter
Bronze

But to introduce series, I’d like to add a few new pets! Hence this competition.

2 - Pet Cards

Pet cards will be a completely new feature. Pet cards allow you to see all the pets you have unlocked, while showing how many you haven’t at the same time. If you’ve unlocked a pet, you’ll be able to view it’s card. Cards will show the pet’s image, the pet’s ID, and a small description.

Pet cards are also part of the reason I’m starting this competition

3 - Seasonal and Special Shops

Seasonal and Special shops are only available for about a week at a time. Special shops often surround special events, such as my anniversary, the anniversary of the Seed Dev Program, and a few other secret events :shushing_face:

Seasonal events are available for the first week of their respective seasons.

Each shop will also have an option to buy seasonal Avatars for your User Profile!

2 - The Competition

Now for the real reason everyone’s here.

The competition!

How it Works:

  1. To join, sketch (this is important! Don’t fully color your art yet, just a concept sketch) a pet you want to turn in. You can turn in a real pet, like a hamster or a goldfish, or a mythical/fantastical one! (It just can’t be one included in the original series)

  2. Post your art in your monthly portfolio for November/December (depending on when you turn it in)

  3. Link your portfolio here and tag me (@Andpi) with the following information:
    A. Your Pet’s Name
    B. Proposed Rarity
    C. Proposed Series

  4. When the first deadline (2021-12-02T06:00:00Z) arrives, the judges and I will select a few pets from each series/rarity to move on to the next round.

  5. Each judge will offer CC or suggestions for the selected Hop’s pets and give them a number rating from 1-10

  6. The artists will go back and redraw their pets, (sketches again) and submit them in the same way as the first round. (Pets must be submitted before the second deadline, 2021-12-16T06:00:00Z)

  7. The judges and I will once again view the pets and select the pets that will make it into PCS and give them a number rating from 1-10

  8. The prizes will be awarded, and the concepts will be forwarded to an official artist, or, in the event an official artist isn’t available, the artist themselves will sketch the final, official pet for Pet Care Sim

  9. I’ll add the pets in in the update!

  10. Feel free to throw in a concept for Pet Cards! I’ll be coding these as shape art but I’d like some concepts/ideas and if I choose yours I’ll double the prizes you get from whatever your placement at the end of the comp!

5 - FAQ

Can I do anything to help?
Of course! Feel free to volunteer to give out prizes!
How are the placements decided?
Highest average number ratings. Basically I’ll take all the number ratings the judges gave each pet, add them up, and divide them by the number of judges. The average will be the final score and decide who gets what placement.
How many pets are you going to be adding?
Great question! I’m aiming for four for each series, but we’ll see how many submissions we get.
Can I submit more than one pet?
Yes!


Random but related thing @ren or @tb23 how would y’all like to be official artists for Pet Care Sim? I love y’all’s art styles. You can say no :slight_smile:


@SecretSounds
@omtl
Once the comp is over, can a mod give out badges please and thank you?

Alright I read through the whole post and I’ll be an Official Artist. Ren gets to choose which pets they want to make final versions of first though.
