I like them :-) Violette has very nice colors!
I wonder why the pictures are streched that much... there is probably a script running in this forum checking the image sizes...

What happens if you want to downgrade your account after playing in premium? What happens to your excess nokuku, objects and items?

You cant downgrade an account, it just expires

>> What happens to your excess nokuku, objects and items?

Good question! I programmed it so that you keep all your items, objects and nokuku. You just can't get new nokuku through breeding, catching or hatching eggs. And the same with objects and items. I think it is fair this way and it was also easy to program ;-)

How does the EXP system work with the AI?

The exp-system doesn't touch the AI, they are seperated from each other. One exception is the health, which decreases in a fight (after an attack of course ) and then drives the nokuku ( if its is in the garden) to eat someting. The EXP-System is similar to general roleplay games. In contrast to pokemon where your pokemon only learn given attacks, you can invest the skillpoints of your nokuku in two attack trees from wich you can unlock and upgrade attacks

The AI is based on the likes/dislikes of a nokuku to other nokuku and objects, of the 3 character values (sociability, curiosity, aggresivity) and 9 feelings (health, hunger, happiness, tiredness, sex drive, fertility, boredom, anger, fear)

A action is for example calculated like this:

sleep: tiredness*(tiredness/27)+(lack of health*4)

All possible actions get so a calculated factor. The action with the highest factor will be executed.

Thank you for the reply nokukuProject,and apologises for not been answering until now ^^'

It took a while before I did have a try going on a exploring and did find new areas,as you said! :3
I manage to capture my first one too,a female rabbitbat (Aiylah,for some reason,I can't make her show up in my sig,everytime I try to use the pose thing in the gif,it trhows a blank white page with errors >_> * Sure been sad that Unaia died and it was unexpected,but things been moving on :3

Aiylah and Xai become a couple and got theyre first egg,now 2 more,and I been able to capture more Nokukus later on as well..but I cidn't find the DNA capsule you mentioned - where is that one? Didn't see any in the lab,also how do you aquire dna parts ?
Also I do not think the first Nokuku is ugly,it's quite,but it sure feel a bit lacking,but hey - I don't think thats an issue at all! Xai is my first and I love him *huggles* ^^

But I must add - when doing blue eyed ones -like clear light blue eyes,it dosn't work well,but maybe thats not realy an issue,and is how the color applies on the sprite,I presume haha ^^


From there,I had quite some things happening,leading me to write down my happenings as a story (yes,I did do that,haha - I am starting to get a family of Nokuku's here) and as well drawed one fanart,and one in the progress,if Interessted I gladly show you,if I manage to scan it,or if anything fails,I take the pics I toook from my cellphone camera! I also let my sis join and test the game,and she seem to enjoy it now and then too!

What you have so far is great to be one lone person doing it,as said before,and I am sure you will expand it - as it entertains me a lot!

I do have some quesstions (again)
be warned - there is quite many,I apologise in advance:
********************************
1. It only happend once,but once i found the exit of the cave to the newer place,I did get a error message,but was nothing bad,I have a prntscreen of it,so I can upload it and show you it,if interessted.

2. as said,all my Gif nokuku links works *thanks a lot for making it easy for us to use it here on Creatures Caves by the way!) and well, only Aiylah is problematic,refusing to show up in my sig if I let the pose alone,and if trying to pose her,the white page with lots of text and errors shows up ^^' She is a common batrabbit,captured in the cave,so no clue why,I yet have to try Rina and another fem batrabbit I have and see if it make the same fuss O.o' It's maybe worth to add,why is 2 of my Nokuku gif smaller but the other is regular size? *not complaining on the smallness - it's good,make the signature not that big and messy* is actuly just asking ^^

3. I noticed that it's easy to avoid poisening in the rocky patch like garden,by collecting the poisenous purple/pink mushrooms - however , One thing that puzzled me is,the first garden with the dragonfruits,blackberry and gooseberrys...I haven't been able to narrow down what is poisening my Nokuku randomly *happend to Xai a few times,and is what killed Unaia - as there is nothing visible and nor does the discreption saying about anything poisenous around,I also would add - saw fruits look like they become detritus,wich is my only guess,but then again,cliking on it,dosn't change discreption O.o

4.I found that my Nokuku's complain about being crowded as quick as you have 3-4 out in the same area - I have my guesses this may be the Nokuku limit for Nokuku feeling pressed,so is this normal?
It was on the rocky path garden,as I don't dare let them in the other duo to the invisible poisening that happens ^^' I haven't tried in the other thought,but when I had 3 *Xai-His mate Aiylah and theyre daughter Ilinah* everything was fine..so I bet maybe 4 is the limit to make a Nokuku annoyed and cramped.
Another thing is - on the rocky path garden it sometime freeze too,maybe it's my internet but thought I mention it anyway.

4.All of sudden I noticed the music is gone when im playing,no area music,no battle music,I tried to mute-unmute it,but nothing O.o On my sis comp,it's the same,only that in the area where the Lv20 insect is dwelling is music heard,except dosn't work for me last time i tried,hmm..

5.I find the entering house,but mostly of all,interact with the people inside (or computers) to react is glitchy when pressing enter ^^'

6. I also wonder,is all batrabbits females?
most I encountered now been females,same for my sis - however, the Gibban seem to be of both gender,got at least one male Gibban and a female jade gibban (unless Jade is a female counterpart..or a rare type?) wich also made me think - dpes that exist for all species - example a (not neccesery jade,but insert prefered color) for batrabbits too?

7.Is there any chance you plant to add some owner interactions?
like petting,be able to offer stuff to a Nokuku and such?
not necessery punishment/reward,thought it could be good (Im not saying you are going to make this to a full creature game,haha) But some things like - if a Nokuku is poisened and it's in the garden,you drop a lot of gooseberry infront of him/her,yet they tend to say theyre still hungry or still determined to walk away looking for something else to eat while it's health drops,and it takes a nap,
and you really try to struggle by giving them the cure- yeah,thats the thing I wish I could somehow do following:
¤drop item as a suggestion to eat that instead,as a way for them to know you try offer something.
¤try wake up them by pet (if there was this option) or simply by picking them up and drop them in the garden if needed *not the best option maybe* but thats just some ideas for now.

8. Will there be a chance to add friends,veiw other Nokuku owners *making a human avatar for yourself just to veiw them,not as a animated person,just as a owner card with bios and such - name,how many Nokukus,info about you etc - thought the human sprites could be fitting,as I don't see why human parts are a part of Nokuku themself - i find it a bit creepy,but thats own prefered taste,im fine with human body and say fox head and tail,but thats it O.o *

Also I meant the veiw info thing like this:
See's a picture of the Nokuku owner *image shown,pretty much as you see your'e Nokuku when it stand front,except it may not be animated*
and from there is things listed like:
*ingame*name:
gender:
country *optional*
Money:
Nokukus: *insert number how many you own*
past Nokuku: *insert number of how many is lost*
Bio/discreption: *tell about yourself*
and underneath is visible the active Nokuku you have,as the standard gif images you have,,except maybe lined up as theyre shown in the bag..
hope this dosn't sound confussing..
and clicking on the nokuku image lead to the normal status about that certain one.
perhaps there could be additional info,like if it has kids or not by a simple family/kids: yes/no...
and finaly - a add friend button,if wanting to add him/her - so you can easily trade/breed and veiw Nokukus maybe


Also,any chance you could visit and/or somehow join in a avdenture/battle with another ?
perhaps breeding with others nokuku could add something too,but with a permission limit,of course,kinda like Happy pets on FB (don't get me wrong,I hate FB,but Im on FB for some games)
so not all go around breed with random people,heh ^^'
just thought the trading Nokuku with people felt a bit,limited XD
Im fine if any of those additional ideas are just a bit of a stretch or too complex etc,but it just came to mind,thats all - as I wish I could somehow keep in touch with my sis,be able to veiw then breed or trade nokukus,then rather just input user and choosen nokuku.

9. Also,anyway you could get items when exploring too? not only by battling,I mean.
Via exploring and pressing space or enter next to a item thats in the area.

Also another thing to add while Im about on items:
why can't you transfer gooseberry in item iventory for battle?
that would be easy to cure poisen
when it happens : (


I maybe should have post all this ideas in the Nokuku forum,but I thought I give it a try here first ^^'

phew,I guess thats all for now,if anything more,I promise to try add that in the Nokuku forum where it belong and I *try* to less on my typing and questions :3

so much text in little time,heh ^^'

First, thank you for your great and helpful review. I never could imagine some of your ideas! It would be great if you can join nokuku on asana.com. This is a extremly easy to use project management tool, where you can list tasks like ideas, bugs and features and where I can comment them and marke them complete after finishing. There are two brave betatesters yet (I'll force them to write in english if you want to join :-P ), so you If you have new ideas you don't need to use the still dead forum ^^ The only thing is i need an email adress for an invitation and a spammy adress would be the best because asana sends mails every time something changed in the project, so you are always on the newest status but your inbox is full, too ;-)

Ok I try to answer the questions the best i can ;-D

It should work now, maybe could you try it again?

Norngirl wrote:

This is true, especially in small eyes (1~3 pixels). I made it that way that the border colors blend into the surrounding colors to avoid hard ugly borders, unfornately an eye in the size of 2 pixels will blend completely....


but I cidn't find the DNA capsule you mentioned
I did't place an egg yet.... Look at your lab I just add a new dnamix ;-)

1. It only happend once,but once i found the exit of the cave to the newer place,I did get a error message,but was nothing bad,I have a prntscreen of it,so I can upload it and show you it,if interessted.

- That would be very helpful. (on asana you can attack files, too)

why is 2 of my Nokuku gif smaller but the other is regular size?

because the moderators manually resized the signature pics (there were a little to big for a signature), I changed the sizes for the forum script to a maximum of 50pixels, So all your pics should be in that size. Maybe you can try it again, they should be all the same size now... (or there is a bug...again...)

3. I noticed that it's easy to avoid poisening in the rocky patch like garden,by collecting the poisenous purple/pink mushrooms - however , One thing that puzzled me is,the first garden with the dragonfruits,blackberry and gooseberrys...I haven't been able to narrow down what is poisening my Nokuku randomly *happend to Xai a few times,and is what killed Unaia - as there is nothing visible and nor does the discreption saying about anything poisenous around,I also would add - saw fruits look like they become detritus,wich is my only guess,but then again,cliking on it,dosn't change discreption O.o

okay, that could be a bug *panic* Only the mushrooms are poisoned, i'll test it!

4.I found that my Nokuku's complain about being crowded as quick as you have 3-4 out in the same area - I have my guesses this may be the Nokuku limit for Nokuku feeling pressed,so is this normal?
Yeah thats normal, but I could change the brain variables so they could tolerate more that 4. I didn't know exactly wich amaunt would be good, so I made it just by feeling...


Another thing is - on the rocky path garden it sometime freeze too,maybe it's my internet but thought I mention it anyway.

This could be the case because I programmed several times at relevant scripts, and I made php errors which affects directly the garden files. Or there is an object that causes the freezing.


4.All of sudden I noticed the music is gone when im playing,no area music,no battle music,I tried to mute-unmute it,but nothing O.o On my sis comp,it's the same,only that in the area where the Lv20 insect is dwelling is music heard,except dosn't work for me last time i tried,hmm..


*uff* annoying -.-° I thought I fixed that bug, which browsers do you and your sister use and when does the music stop after the song ended or after lets say 5 minutes? Or when you swiching often between the levels?

5.I find the entering house,but mostly of all,interact with the people inside (or computers) to react is glitchy when pressing enter ^^'
Hm, doesn't react the npc directly or is the navigation in a bubble to unwieldy?

6. I also wonder,is all batrabbits females?
most I encountered now been females,same for my sis - however, the Gibban seem to be of both gender,got at least one male Gibban and a female jade gibban (unless Jade is a female counterpart..or a rare type?) wich also made me think - dpes that exist for all species - example a (not neccesery jade,but insert prefered color) for batrabbits too?

No, the gender is randomly chosen. Rare colors does not exist yet but it is a good idea and I will definitely add them!

7.Is there any chance you plant to add some owner interactions?

If it enhances your game experiece, there is definitive! it would be complex to program, so I would push it to the end of the year, but I like your ideas very much and i think I will realize most of them :-D

as I don't see why human parts are a part of Nokuku themself
hehe ^^ My sister said the same to me and that I break taboos *lol* I could not decide between a role play (based on human chars) and an breeding game so I had to mix them ^^

8. Will there be a chance to add friends,view other Nokuku owners...

1: Yeah!
2: sounds easy to programm
3. will be definitely realized ;-D


Also,any chance you could visit and/or somehow join in a avdenture/battle with another ?
Batteling is actually possible by type in the user id of another user in the battle-screen, but the user has to accept it in 10 seconds to start the battle.
(I think the user vs user modus should work but I have to test it again) I must also add a message system to inform about a battle request....

perhaps breeding with others nokuku could add something too,but with a permission limit,of course,kinda like Happy pets on FB
To do that, you have to trade a nokuku and then breed it, but this is an interesting idea though. maybe you can breed more nokuku or with a higher level by buying the premium account *thinking*

so not all go around breed with random people,heh ^^'
*ggg*

...don't get me wrong,I hate FB...
Me too, :-D


just thought the trading Nokuku with people felt a bit,limited XD
*LOL*


Im fine if any of those additional ideas are just a bit of a stretch or too complex etc,but it just came to mind,thats all - as I wish I could somehow keep in touch with my sis,be able to veiw then breed or trade nokukus,then rather just input user and choosen nokuku.

I think this is a very important aspect for the game experiece. Thank you!

9. Also,anyway you could get items when exploring too? not only by battling,I mean.
Via exploring and pressing space or enter next to a item thats in the area.


Yepp, when I am starting to make quests I'll spread items, too!

Also another thing to add while Im about on items:
why can't you transfer gooseberry in item iventory for battle?
that would be easy to cure poisen
when it happens : (

Ah okay, not all objects can be used as items, because it would be to ease to get them, this was my idea, perhaps it was a bad idea.... o.o

Thank you again and maybe you can join us on asana ;D

Your'e very welcome and it's me who shall thank you so much for the reply!
Im amazed and appreciate that you took your' time and manage to answer on all my questions,thanks a lot for having patient with me and Im glad I could be of a bit of insperation as well! Not many people do have the energy to read trough my lenghty posts,and I do understand - A sea of texts can be quite a lot for people not used to read lot,but I just can't help it - when I type,I try type in detail and well,it get lenghty heh ^^' This time,it will probably be the same,so be ready for lots of text *again*

Sure thing! I would be glad to join you guys on asana,
hopefuly Im able to help in one way or another , be able to come up with more ideas and suggestions or and if anything fails,see if I find anything more thats buggy with it and whatnot!
Im glad truly that some if not all was of use,I surely may have some more that come now and then :3
I did actuly have one more question I wanted to ask,but never typed it as I forgot,but came back to me not until today: will there be any toys for the nokukus?
As I seen a couple of time mine saying theyre bored,haha X3

Haha yeah - Im only english speaking (minus my native swedish XD ) so feel free to force them,but not too hard, I know it's not allways easy with language ^^

Yeah it's true that it's best to choose a e-mail that may not be the "main" one,so to speak - good thing I do have a few,incase bad things would happen X_X'
Here is my e-mail nornychan@hotmail.com ,I do hope that one works well? I will try to chek it on a regular base,as I tend to look at my main one lot more,but as you said - it can spamm a lot,but then again , if that one is not a useable one (Im not sure of hotmail's limits and not), I guess I
might trhow in my main one,but I PM you with that one,just incase if that one I mentioned wouldn't be of use,of course.

Once again thank for kindly answering on my questions and some of my ideas,
I try my best to asnwer as well on some here (I might skip some,as there where questions that I just wanted to be clarified,such as the eye pixels - wich is very understandable,but glad I got a clearer answer on it,thanks again Lioba *also, I may very well be used to adress people by theyre chosen nickname,but since I noticed you did actuly say your'e actual name from the start of this topic,hope you don't mind,just thought that it may sound better if I say Lioba then nokukuproject perhaps* :3

Im trying to make it in my usual manner,hopefuly it's easy to read:


Lab Question:
**************************'
Q:but I didn't find the DNA capsule you mentioned
A:I did't place an egg yet.... Look at your lab I just add a new dnamix ;-)

New reply: I cheked my lab,still nothing,it say "you have no dna-material",
I probably do something wrong here,I clicked on the lab icon,but maybe It's more to it then that XD
I also didn't find anything in my bag inventory *cheked there to be sure*

Error Image - file uploading (and yet a new question arise)
******************************************************************
Q:1. It only happend once,but once i found the exit of the cave to the newer place,I did get a error message,but was nothing bad,I have a prntscreen of it,so I can upload it and show you it,if interessted
A: That would be very helpful. (on asana you can attack files, too)

New Reply: Sure thing! I usuly try to prnscreen as much I can when it comes to oddity like that,
or anything image wise! It's good to know you can file attach on asana,thought I wonder if there may be some limits for the uploading? Oh and while where at the image subject, wich lead yet to another question (saying it,before forgeting it)

Any possibility we could take some snapshoots of our Nokuku moments? I can't help but someime when I see the camera icon next to the option icon have me confissed with thinking "camera mode time" -
with that - I do NOT mean that you need to change the icon for gallery,rather more like - that icon sparked that silly idea of mine,but then again - maybe it will be too much like creatures (again?)..but then again,sure some or most pets games do have a photo option,but Im not sure if I seen any web-based one having it as of yet XD
I might have more ideas on that thing,but I leave it as it is now - because Im not sure what you think of it.

(sorry if I didn't save it to asana,but since that idea sprang back to me now,better say it now then forgeting)
Im all fine if it's a thing you think is not a thing you want or like - I can allways have my trusty prntscreen button so I take snapshots that way of my Nokukus still,hehe X3


Nokuku GIF sizes + Aiylah issue
***********************************************
Q:why is 2 of my Nokuku gif smaller but the other is regular size?

Q2 : Aiylah,for some reason,I can't make her show up in my sig,everytime I try to use the pose thing in the gif,it trhows a blank white page with errors >_> * Sure been sad that Unaia died and it was unexpected,but things been moving on :3

A:because the moderators manually resized the signature pics (there were a little to big for a signature), I changed the sizes for the forum script to a maximum of 50pixels, So all your pics should be in that size. Maybe you can try it again, they should be all the same size now... (or there is a bug...again...)

A2: It should work now, maybe could you try it again?

New Reply: Aiylah is showing up now,thank you so much!
As you might notice now,Xai's and & Aiylah's 3 kids are visible there now,so it's the whole family,
except I did NOT add Ilinah's mate and theyre daughter - don't want to make my sig gigantic XD
Also,all of them are now small nice sizes and looks great,so no more issue with that!Once again,thank you!

The Mysterious Poisening
********************************
Q: 3. I noticed that it's easy to avoid poisening in the rocky patch like garden,by collecting the poisenous purple/pink mushrooms - however , One thing that puzzled me is,the first garden with the dragonfruits,blackberry and gooseberrys...I haven't been able to narrow down what is poisening my Nokuku randomly *happend to Xai a few times,and is what killed Unaia - as there is nothing visible and nor does the discreption saying about anything poisenous around,I also would add - saw fruits look like they become detritus,wich is my only guess,but then again,cliking on it,dosn't change discreption O.o
A:okay, that could be a bug *panic* Only the mushrooms are poisoned, i'll test it!

New Reply: Yeah,I do think it's a bug,as I wondered how the hey could they be poisened when
there is no mushrooms + when they did get random poisened I didn't even test the explore mode back then - so I can asure you,there was no battles with poisen insects,nor was it any pink mushrooms in the garden,as it is the first one. (I do guess when battling a poisen insect nokuku,you get poisened still is if you continue battle or is in garden anyway - but thats probably normal)
So I guess that fruit/edible suff that look like detritous is not poisening then O.o' I could try and test too,just hoping that Xai will be willing eating goose berry thats around XD Im interessted thought to hear if you found out what it could be if you do find out what may cause it!


Crowdness Limit
*************************
Q: 4.I found that my Nokuku's complain about being crowded as quick as you have 3-4 out in the same area - I have my guesses this may be the Nokuku limit for Nokuku feeling pressed,so is this normal?
A: Yeah thats normal, but I could change the brain variables so they could tolerate more that 4. I didn't know exactly wich amaunt would be good, so I made it just by feeling...

New Reply: Thank you for clearing that for me! Im not sure actuly what could be the crowdness limit,
as Im not sure - how many Nokukus can you cram into the garden? I didn't test myself how many I
can squeeze in there myself,but just to avoid angry and punch happy Nokukus,I am curious if there is a limit.Knowing the limit number of nokuku able to be in the garden at same time make it probably easy to find out a decent number for crowdness limit,thought it's just an idea - but 3-4 is ok too,of course :3

(one more question arose regarding to this: when Nokuku hits each other *wich I presume they only do when crowded* - do they do damage on the health bar and can it be deadly,like killing each other if reciving to many hits ? I only experienced the punching twice,but never did catch a glimps if it do some kind of damage to the health or so - I could guess it probably would only lower the likeness (the 1-100 % rate) as I got it - when it's set on 1% it's disliked,whole 100 is loved/liked.



Rocky Garden Freezing
**********************************
Q:Another thing is - on the rocky path garden it sometime freeze too,maybe it's my internet but thought I mention it anyway.
A:This could be the case because I programmed several times at relevant scripts, and I made php errors which affects directly the garden files. Or there is an object that causes the freezing.

New reply: My last run hasn't had that issue now for a while,but I will be on a outlook if it does happen again,I can at least say it only did happen in this area thought.

Music Problems
*********************************
Q:4.All of sudden I noticed the music is gone when im playing,no area music,no battle music,I tried to mute-unmute it,but nothing O.o On my sis comp,it's the same,only that in the area where the Lv20 insect is dwelling is music heard,except dosn't work for me last time i tried,hmm..
A: *uff* annoying -.-° I thought I fixed that bug, which browsers do you and your sister use and when does the music stop after the song ended or after lets say 5 minutes? Or when you swiching often between the levels?

New reply: It been in the past weeks, when I started playing Nokuku it allways had music,except the garden,wich I think did not have one (?),
but it's now when Im going to the site,going to explorer mode - no music at all,not even when it loads,or entering a cave/new area - nothing - sound effects can be heard thought ^^'
I thought it maybe was a code update you where working on -and so I thought in order to fix stuff,music had to be turned off XD Beside - me and sis both use google chrome and it was on seperate computers *me running on my win XP,and she on her win7 laptop * ^^' I realy enjoy the music, *did go to the composers site
*Eric Skiff* and even downloaded some of the songs - they surely fit the nokuku game - just love it* : D
I been curious if more of the songs been used for the Nokuku game,as im not sure how many areas excist in the explorer mode,nor am I able to investigate as of yet,as im not 20+ in levels yet to tackle stronger wild nokukus to do that wild safari trip and being a daredevil XD
(fav songs is the one you used in the battles "searching" but I ejoy also another,wich Im not sure is (or will be included ingame) called "come and find me" and it's remix X3
Sorry just had to say that : D


Glitchy Interacting With people Inside Houses

Q: 5.I find the entering house,but mostly of all,interact with the people inside (or computers) to react is glitchy when pressing enter ^^'
A: Hm, doesn't react the npc directly or is the navigation in a bubble to unwieldy?

New reply: It's the reaction,it may take some enter hittings,and moving around til you find the right spot
when theyre able to talk to you.I thought it may be spot sensitive,like where you stand,
but sometime it takes lots of enter hits,as said before anything happens - hitting the spacebar is working better versus the NCP ^^'

Female V.S Male Ratio
***********************************
Q: 6. I also wonder,is all batrabbits females?
most I encountered now been females,same for my sis - however, the Gibban seem to be of both gender,got at least one male Gibban and a female jade gibban (unless Jade is a female counterpart..or a rare type?) wich also made me think - does that exist for all species - example a (not neccesery jade,but insert prefered color) for batrabbits too?
A: No, the gender is randomly chosen. Rare colors does not exist yet but it is a good idea and I will definitely add them!

New Reply: Ah,thats very great to know! I encountered 5-8 Batrabbits,all being female +
my sis encounters too,so I just had a feeling they might be fems,not just because theyre pink haha XD
Also thats cool - some color variations is allways a nice addition me think,and is glad you liked that idea ^^

Owner Interactions And Ideas
************************************
Q: 7.Is there any chance you plant to add some owner interactions?
A: If it enhances your game experiece, there is definitive! it would be complex to program, so I would push it to the end of the year, but I like your ideas very much and i think I will realize most of them :-D

New Reply: Yeah - Im pretty sure it could surely be a useful and great thing to add!
it could be helpful and add to that your'e realy interacting with your'e Nokuku!
Im very flattered and happy you liked my ideas too,it's cool to hear that my idea may become as a welcome addition part of this neat game that will continue to grow,Im sure will make even greater as it expand!!: D
I just hope Im not suggesting too impossible things - I can assure you,I surely have quite many ideas that might be sounding bit to complex or maybe weird,but if some of those realy are doable (and ,of course,accepted) then Im glad - it's nice to see things you think yourself might be too complicated/complex,and yet you might be proven wrong and see that the ideas was not that extrem to make X3

Human-fied Nokuku (XD)
****************************
Q;as I don't see why human parts are a part of Nokuku themself
A:hehe ^^ My sister said the same to me and that I break taboos *lol* I could not decide between a role play (based on human chars) and an breeding game so I had to mix them ^^

New reply: haha,is that so? X3 Well,that surely is one interessting to incoperate 2 ideas into one,lol!
perhaps there is a chance the human parts coul be used for the owner idea at some point?
I did like the early screeny where it looked like human owner with it's nokuku pet partner exploring togheter
in the world.But perhaps that thing was a thing you think was maybe too common,maybe?
I thought from the start that the human parts was to customise own avatar of itself as a owner,but I was like eh? O.o when I saw it was a part of the Nokukus themself,haha X3

Friend Adding Idea
**********************
Q:8. Will there be a chance to add friends,view other Nokuku owners...
A:1: Yeah!,2: sounds easy to programm,3. will be definitely realized ;-D

Visit/Join Adventures With Other Players And Battling
************************************************************
Q:Also,any chance you could visit and/or somehow join in a avdenture/battle with another ?
A:Batteling is actually possible by type in the user id of another user in the battle-screen, but the user has to accept it in 10 seconds to start the battle.
(I think the user vs user modus should work but I have to test it again) I must also add a message system to inform about a battle request....

New reply: Oh the battle part I meant by you go and join another friend on exploring the world,and battle the wild Nokukus,not the battle that take place via the battle icon between two peoples nokukus,sorry my mistake to not be clear XD
So,is it realy possible to join another when exploring,like 2 walking around on the areas and such?


Q:perhaps breeding with others nokuku could add something too,but with a permission limit,of course,kinda like Happy pets on FB
A:To do that, you have to trade a nokuku and then breed it, but this is an interesting idea though. maybe you can breed more nokuku or with a higher level by buying the premium account *thinking*

New reply: Hmm I see,so no way to still keep your'e in the garden,and get a message popup asking you to allow mix with anothers - then suddenly you and your'e friend both got a egg in the garden?
If it is by trading - any chance you can trade your'e Nokuku back to yourself?
I been wondering if the trading system is allowing trading forth and back - or is it trade once and the Nokuku is lost for the original owner for good? I been wondering that a bit,as I was unsure to lend some of my Nokukus for my sis,but thought I might not be able to get them back once traded X3
Oh and yes! Another important question - when trading - does both need nokukus ready to trade,or you can still trade if one has none and the other has one?


No Breeding Spree
**********************
"so not all go around breed with random people,heh ^^'"
A:*ggg*

new Reply: I been wondering what the *g* smiley means - I seen most,but that ones new for me XD
And yeah - I think it would be crazy if people freely breeded Nokukus with anyone,as I know some halfpet like sites who had that - was not fun T_T'


Transfer Items
******************
Q:Also another thing to add while Im about on items:
why can't you transfer gooseberry in item iventory for battle?
that would be easy to cure poisen
when it happens : (
A:Ah okay, not all objects can be used as items, because it would be to ease to get them, this was my idea, perhaps it was a bad idea.... o.o

New Reply: Haha,I see - well it sure is a good reason,but as I got that poisen bug,plus my Nokuku not getting Gooseberry themself a lot - making them near the brink of death and unable to offer them gooseberry as a item suggestion, I thought at least Gooseberry could be a useful item - if not wishing it to be taken easily in the garden and into the inventory - then perhaps,maybe you could obtain a ok amount of them durring battles as a item you win ? Just thought that it would be a easy option for now as the poisen thing is hard to cure with Nokukus that is not eating gooseberry a lot on a regulsr basis XD
Im not sure if poisen is the only thing thats deadly,but it got my respect for sure - don't want more dead ones O.o' Oh and speaking of dead...Do Nokuku die of old age ?

Phew I guess thats all XD
There - we got some questions here again and some new - and no worry,I save more to asana :3
If anything is unclear or so,I try my best to try explain better next time I get the chance to reply ^^

Once again,thansk for taking time to read my super long post,yet I know this one is lenghty as well,
I hope still that it's readable :3

I enjoy your long posts, it is wonderful to hear from someone who appreciate your work in such a passionate way :D


> Sure thing! I would be glad to join you guys on asana,
I am so glad! I sent you an invitation from asana to nornychan@hotmail.com. Did you received it?

back to me not until today: will there be any toys for the nokukus?
As I seen a couple of time mine saying theyre bored,haha X3
> Yes, there will be toys!

Haha yeah - Im only english speaking (minus my native swedish XD ) so feel free to force them,but not too hard, I know it's not allways easy with language ^^
> This is great, did you learn it in Sweden at a very young age?

just thought that it may sound better if I say Lioba then nokukuproject perhaps* :3
> Yeah thanks! I just didn’t want to use my name for the forum account, because of the usual reason to not use your real name ^^, but I was to uncreative to choose a nickname -.-

Im trying to make it in my usual manner,hopefuly it's easy to read:


Lab Question:
**************************'

New reply: I cheked my lab,still nothing,it say "you have no dna-material",
>Sorry, maybe I use the wrong userId, now It should be in the lab. It is the normal start mixture. By the way I love the word you’ve inveted “dna capsule” it is much better then mix. I’ll gonna steal it :D (if you don’t mind)

>I wonder if there may be some limits for the uploading?
Hm, I don’t know exactly I am new to it, too. My collegues at work set an account for nukuku up.. (They are so kind ^^) I’m gonna ask them tomorrow. But I know, they cut the images if they only want to show a specific part of it…


Any possibility we could take some snapshoots of our Nokuku moments?
> unfornately this is’nt possible. Because as you probably already noticed when you stop the game (by the way did you found that function? ) the animations take some time to end, so the camera would only catch the last animation step, I don’t know if this would be useful. Maybe something come to my mind in future….^^

>maybe it will be too much like creatures (again?)..
I don’t think that would be a problem (at least not for me, I love creatures). I hope the developers don’t mind about it… Besides Nokuku cant compete with the creatures series. There is no physic engine (I really badly wanted one but for a HTML5 game there was no, and now the code is to much finished to implement one) and the new creatures game is even better, so I hope there will be no problems… o~o


Aiylah is showing up now,thank you so much!
>You are very welcome :D

As you might notice now,Xai's and & Aiylah's 3 kids are visible there now,so it's the whole family,
except I did NOT add Ilinah's mate and theyre daughter - don't want to make my sig gigantic XD
> I laughed loud when I read that ;P… By they way do you know that you can flip the pictures, too? (there is a checkbox next to the animation select field)

Trooms are poisoned, i'll test it!

New Reply: Yeah,I do think it's a bug,as I wondered how the hey could they be poisened…
> I am convinced, some of my nokukus are unexplicably poisened, too I’M ON IT *hate bugs*

(I do guess when battling a poisen insect nokuku,you get poisened still is if you continue battle or is in garden anyway - but thats probably normal)
> The posining continues but your nokuku don’t get poisoned when they just battle a insect (or any) nokuku, only If they get hurt by a poisoning attack and it succeed.

as Im not sure - how many Nokukus can you cram into the garden?
> until chrome crashes XD (It will do it, I promise you, chrome is very touchy… If it comes that far you can take all nokuku by clicking on the ”pick all nokuku” to prevent a major crash ^^)

do they do damage on the health bar and can it be deadly,like killing each other if reciving to many hits ?
> Yeah, this is possible I decreased the hit damage because very many nokuku died, but it could be too weak now, if you want you can test it, but pay attention that they don’t kill eatxh other!


Music Problems
> it should work now…
Eric Skiff is great!!! I love his songs too and I was so happy that everyone can use them for free, I thought about commission songs in the future if nokuku will gain some money because his style is amazing

> *Eric Skiff* and even downloaded some of the songs
I hear them when I do pixelart ^^

I been curious if more of the songs been used for the Nokuku game,
>I am going to use all of them. There are only 4 ~ 5 levels which only have nature and some wild nokuku, (and I am not satisfied with the construction so I am thinking of rebuilding the levels when I have Ideas for a story line to fit it all better together )


It's the reaction,it may take some enter hittings,and moving around til you find the right spot
> good tip, I’ll increase the event area!

Yeah - Im pretty sure it could surely be a useful and great thing to add!
it could be helpful and add to that your'e realy interacting with your'e Nokuku!
> I tought about it the last nights how to do it i am going to implement it after or in the middle of my giant to do list , probably in the end of the year -.- (My wish for chrismas to have more time didn’t come true ^^)

Im very flattered and happy you liked my ideas too,it's cool to hear that my idea may become as a welcome addition part of this neat game that will continue to grow,Im sure will make even greater as it expand!!: D
>I’ll see you on asasa! ;D

it's nice to see things you think yourself might be too complicated/complex,and yet you might be proven wrong and see that the ideas was not that extrem to make X3
> That would be a variety… all things took longer than I thought, but I’ll do not give up hope perhaps you’re right C-;

perhaps there is a chance the human parts coul be used for the owner idea at some point?
I did like the early screeny where it looked like human owner with it's nokuku pet partner exploring togheter
> This is indeed a coincidence. On of them is an event…. ;-(
The avatar is a difficult thing, I could make a dna-mix to create an avatar from those human body parts, but they are only few human breeds so the variety is very small and many games live from avatars with a wide range of customization. Maybe I just implement an upload pic function ^^ I know its cheap, but I have no better idea….

I thought from the start that the human parts was to customise own avatar of itself as a owner,but I was like eh? O.o when I saw it was a part of the Nokukus themself,haha X3
> Yeah, This ist true, I first planned to make an avatar with whom you can fight too but who is every time on the first position in your team but then I discovered by guiding an animal-like nokuku trough the level it is way more fun, so I decided to make no difference between human and animals. The first explanaition I write before is right, too it was a gradual effect while developing the game so they are more than one reason for that strange result ^^

So,is it realy possible to join another when exploring,like 2 walking around on the areas and such?
>I thought about it in the last night, too ^^ But I unfornately this would be to much work (time) for me. Nothing is impossible and I love the idea, maybe in future. Give me 2 years ^^

New reply: Hmm I see,so no way to still keep your'e in the garden,and get a message popup asking you to allow mix with anothers - then suddenly you and your'e friend both got a egg in the garden?
> No, this is possible. It is not that complex and it would take 2 month, but I think the user interaction with the nokuku could be more important. (In my mind) What do you think?


If it is by trading - any chance you can trade your'e Nokuku back to yourself?
> Yeah of course I should have mentionied in the text above *dumb*, you can trade as much as you like back and forth only limited by the free account to trade one nkk per day. But you have the premium ^^

> when trading - does both need nokukus ready to trade,or you can still trade if one has none and the other has one?
Not yet, I wanted to implement a function for adopting offers but I am currently sticking on bug fixing… *-*


No Breeding Spree
**********************
"so not all go around breed with random people,heh ^^'"
A:*ggg*

new Reply: I been wondering what the *g* smiley means - I seen most,but that ones new for me XD
I thought it is used by english speaking people, too and I wrote it without thinking ^^° It means “grin” like smiling and adding gs increases the grin *lol* in german the word is “grinsen” so it is almost the same

I know some halfpet like sites who had that - was not fun T_T'
> Where? This sounds like a giant baby pet spam wave ^^

Wait until the description of the fish changes to not lose money :-)

Do Nokuku die of old age ?
> Not yet, I worried about users who trained her favourite nkk to a high level and then see it die and but I read about dying in the creatures wiki and an important thing for a real life feeling is this possibility . I not sure how they die. I don’t want to use a silly function like die over 70, maybe a heart that will become weaker I am not sure yet…


I am going to fix some bugs and implement new funtions ;-P so It will take a couple of days for me to replie, maybe we can switch to asana ^^

No prob,your'e welcome,Im glad to hear that!
I realy think that there would be more people like you that could create interessting things like this,as Im allways on the hunt for any kind of virtual/digital pet/animal/monster or creatures in general oriented game stuff and I find anything that is as close as creatures or at least petz3-5 or any other game I enjoy of that genre of closeness is hard to come by nowdays in my openion!

Im still looking from time to time now and then if there is any old games that been floating the net not noticed/not popular enough - or if there exist any new released /in-progress stuff.So far,not much luck ^^'
Im quite a picky person,as I prefer stuff where you can have the feeling it is your'e own pet,you can interact with it in many uniq ways,having some quirks and stuff making it uniq and in oneway or another stand out . making the game not another tamagotchi or nintendog game,it's realy sad that the once petz games where a uniq game in it's own right and then got turned into a nintendog clone >_>'.
Experiments/mutate/breed,specialy if it is involving eggs and color mutations is something I love!
Some games that I know of with color breeding is Birdland (FB) and pocket frogs (iPhone/Android)
There may be more,but thats the one I play most.
Allways cool to see what color combo you get or a new color mutation!
But the breeding part has allways been interessting to me,but most if it involves mutations of both parents.
Not so fun to breed identical clones of mom or dad (birdland on cellphone does that T_T' Hoped it would be like the FB one,but noo)

Battling is also another thing I find fun,yet dosn't have to be neccesery to be a part of a pet game - yet it can be quite fun!Been playing lot of Monster Rancher,Jade Cocoon,Dragon Quest and the two more known Digimon & Poke'mon as well!I do know some more,but that to name at least my top favs.I know there exist some on cellphone,web and Ds too - nontheless they still will be the typical popular capture monster/battle like games,very few adds some uniqness to it that make it stand out to the crowd,thought.

I think it's neat Nokuku is combining the two game elements with creatures and monster capture rpg games : D
Im quite curious to what more will Nokuku evolve to,but nontheless - I do hope this could also inspire people
that is also bored of the same boring pet games thats seen around,to take a step up and make theyre own pet games,
just for that reason that it lacks lot of interessting pet games in general,or even better - cool and interessting old games such as Petz*the old PC ones with add-balls,not the remakes* and Creatures series along with Fin Fin that might inspire for new games to do something more original,rather then recycle the 3D pet games with dress-up,mini games and the limited Feed,brush,bath,play and can't die or breed, and in the end dosn't feel alive or have any additional personality.I do must add,alltought,finfin may not be like those 2 - but the interation with the sensory and/or whistle/microphone and the happenings/changes in the world itself was interessting - think of what they could evolve it into with todays tech!). http://www.alassea.net/finfin/index.php?infowhat and http://home.arcor.de/emge/index_e.htm.I might also add,even thought that Petz series never do die,they still have other things that make them more alive and interessting,such as growing up over time,nuture them for bad/good behaviour,have likes/dislikes for food,toys and other petz,can pass on genetical traits not only judged by apperance,size and sounds but in personality too.

The main prob with todays pets themed games is people have great tech,yet they use it on same recycled game concept - nintendogs but in various forms,yet again might have some differs,but dosn't dare to make it too different of some unknown reason,in my openion.
3D pet game that been looking most interessting so far is eye pet *only seen some clips,and liked the look and idea of it so far - new stuff such as ,but I guess even that might feel limited after a bit* and Fantastic Pets concept idea of morphing a basic pet intop a fantasy creature like a regular lizard into a dragon is neat,yet the last time I saw the clip,the game experience didn't seem to offer very very much,unless I might be wrong.
I don't own any of this games as I don't have kinect,nor do I have Ps3,but heard/seen stuff about it.
And if not the nintendogs/tamagotchi or popular FB/cellphone games with "build,hatch-take care" theme,then there is the
Monster capture genre as I mentioned before - but I don't count it so much as a pure pet thing,as you rarely find a game wich make it feel alive,except Monster Rancher game series ( my fav being MR2,for Ps1) , wich is the most alive like feeling for a monster raising genre game compared to any other I know so far,as they can: raise from baby and it grow up over time the week and years (with season changing) pass thatbyou train it,eat,sleep,can get sick if injured in battles or run away if you are too hard on it duo too much scolding
*yes you can scold and praise them,but only after a battle or failed/cheated or done outstanding in training.
They also have likes/dislikes in you and/or certain items and even get skinny to fat depend on what you feed them.They can turn out to be good,evil or neutral.The have theyre own birth date too,wich you celebrate theyre birthday and also they do eventualy die - may it be of injury or of old age,from there you can decide if you want to have a funeral or not. To me,that surely is kinda deep for being just a raise a monster type game,because usuly monster type games is just get a monster,raise in levels and battle and/or capture more.

I also is still puzzled on how the hey do neopets themed sites keep growing - when they all are just still images with some mini flash games to earn money O.o' Last time was couple days ago I cheked a list of pet games,and there was surely 20+ of links just with neopet clones,and only 2-3 links to non ones,such as foopets or creaturebreeder. @__@' How the hey can they be fun when it dosn't feel alive or even animated, I been puzzled for years,I even tried it and still don't find it fun compared to Creatures or Petz 5.Neopets and the rest of the clones may got cute designs,yet the gaming is just not true gaming for me,none offense to any neopet player - for me,it has to do more then be a non moving image for me to call it a pet XD

So with that long rant of mine over (I certainly hope I did not go too much half-off topic here,now did I?)
Nokuku is something fresh,new and fun and surely keep me entertained by just have my Nokuku wandering in the garden and
see what happens. I even told a friend of mine the story of my Nokuku happenings and she was interessted, and she said she might join X3
Indeed I think it's about time we see more pet games thats not neopet clones,there is allready 20 or more of them allready and thats enough for me,thank you. I rather see more games thats supposed to be what theyre meant to be - a living pet and a companion : D

Phew - sorry about that long rant,I had to just type it T_T'
Can allways scroll past it to skip it,but if you did read all that....thank you!

And now for the
quick reply for the other main stuff here:

Yep,I got it,thank you! I did have a quick look and only made my own avatar there *profile pic*
and the rest looked quite confusing to be honest XD

Yep ^^
I was a small kid and learned by watching english cartoons that was aired on cartoon network *was before swedish version of it existed* and later on PC games also helped,Creatures included : D
Thanks to that I was better better at english then most of the others in my school,haha XD
But I must admit,I know my spelling/gramma is not the best - as it been a while since I was in school of course and when you are much on the internet and people around you dosn't care much for it, is why Im not perfect - I may also trhow in that my dyslexi combined with my fast typing fingers may also cast around words sometime >_>' Still,that have never stopped me from enjoying english rather then swedish and
I also been prefering english when I write stories or make comics in general,I even talk it now and then too,haha ^^

Indeed,thats surely nice of them :3 Thanks,yeah sure would be good to know the limit.
Oh also, no worry,I would only cut parts that is relevant to issues and stuff,I usuly don't take a prntscreen of whole screen as it take up space and is a bit silly if not there is a reason to it (example the whole screen is effected,and not specific/minor parts).

Ah yeah - I see what you mean allright,I noticed it may lag a bit to stop and can surely imagen that would happen if there was a camera thing O.o' But hey - maybe there might come ideas in the future as you said,even thought,I do not say it may be the usefulest thing ever,but perhaps a fun thing if it may sometime find it's way - but it's realy not that important,of course X3 For now prntscreen work fine for me still : D
*prntscreens while it runs withoutt pausing Nokuku works afterall*.

Haha same here - I think games reminding of creatures in one way or another is absolutely not bad at all,and I don't think the creators would mind terrible too much at all either if you burrow some concept ideas of it,as long there won't be a total clone of Creatures,only differ that the Creatures themself may not be called Norns,Grendels,Ettins and Geat/Shee along with the theyre world Albia getting also a name change into something else,yet work exact the same *wich of course, Nokuku isn't and won't become,I know,but nor will there be any,as no one ever tried,and that surely would be crazy to try to re-create that,allready FC have had troubles with re-creating that only by basing it on similar,or even same engine as Creatures3 use - it's just too much work,as it involves the whole science of brain structure,DNA and genetics in general XD* So no worry,burrowing ideas like this happens all the time,
even FC admitted theyre going for a spore style (and they did go for a the sims style too,in the demo at least,ugh >_> )
I think of that as insperations - as various games and other things do inspire one and another to use similar concept to not directly re-create it,
but maybe create it in a similar,yet new fashion. When I was asking if it may be too much of Creatures, I was more concerned if you thought
that I was going to suggest too much things making Nokuku a bit too much creatures,wich I of course don't XD
But as said - ideas like that from various sources as base,helps on to get an idea of how things could work and look like,
as long theyre of course not a clone :3 I know that Nokuku allready have a monster catching rpg with some hint of creatures in it,
but allready that makes it somewhat new and interessting ^^ That with physics would surely add something,but I fully understand that it didn't work,and
I don't think that changeor limit it too much,does it? ^^

As you might notice now,Xai's and & Aiylah's 3 kids are visible there now,so it's the whole family,

> I laughed loud when I read that ;P… By they way do you know that you can flip the pictures, too? (there is a checkbox next to the animation select field)

Haha is that so? XD But it's true,signatures surely can grow if I where to add all of my Nokukus in there X3
I realy don't want the admins to get mad at me for making a giga siagnature that eat spaces ,make people scroll endless*they allready have to do that after my gigantic massive long posts - blush- ^^' * and also not to steal too much bandwitch or slow loading because of the signature lol.
I realy do hope the signature is fine as it is right now - thought that I might limit myself only to Xai and his family *ytes,I count lost Unaia as a part of his family,she was like his adopted girl afterall*
Oh and yes,I do know that - it's very useful to have,even thought I haven't used it just yet myself,thanks! : D

New Reply: Yeah,I do think it's a bug,as I wondered how the hey could they be poisened…
> I am convinced, some of my nokukus are unexplicably poisened, too I’M ON IT *hate bugs*


Aha,yep - could guess so X_X' Quite a nasty bug,I'd say,but theyre safe as long you move them to the rocky path garden at least
*as long you remove the poisen shrooms first by put them in the bag*

nokukuProject wrote:

(I do guess when battling a poisen insect nokuku,you get poisened still is if you continue battle or is in garden anyway - but thats probably normal)
> The posining continues but your nokuku don’t get poisoned when they just battle a insect (or any) nokuku, only If they get hurt by a poisoning attack and it succeed.

Ah yes - I did mean the poisen attack the bug Nokuku does,but I called it short for poisen Nokuku,as it was the only one I seen with that attack so far XD I do hope there is Nokukus that have attacks with heal/cure status ailment *if now that exist* to be able to hopefuly have a chance to be passed on when breeding,that could be a cool idea *.* As I guess poisen attack do exist as attack you probably could pass on if I capture this annoying insect with that said attack and try breed it,chances is I might get a Nokuku kid with it*prays* Well if so,thats what I plan as quick I get any of My Nokuku's t o lv20-30+ X3 *come to wonder actuly how many attacks may exist in general,as there is a emental chart,but no attack chart,as far I know* XD

nokukuProject wrote:

as Im not sure - how many Nokukus can you cram into the garden?
> until chrome crashes XD (It will do it, I promise you, chrome is very touchy… If it comes that far you can take all nokuku by clicking on the ”pick all nokuku” to prevent a major crash ^^)

Yike X_X' I shall know,my google chrome is very delicate and like to missbehave *not with Nokuku,so far,so good* but wow,so it's kinda unlimited then O.o I bet that having at least 10 or 15 Nokukus would be enough before the crash,huh?

nokukuProject wrote:

do they do damage on the health bar and can it be deadly,like killing each other if reciving to many hits ?
> Yeah, this is possible I decreased the hit damage because very many nokuku died, but it could be too weak now, if you want you can test it, but pay attention that they don’t kill eatxh other!

Oh okay,thats very good to know ^^ I had few hit cases,but the thing with it being lethal didn't hit me until I come to think about creatures *and a few other games* work like that - enough hits and you might end up dead X_X'

Music Problems
> it should work now…
Eric Skiff is great!!! I love his songs too and I was so happy that everyone can use them for free, I thought about commission songs in the future if nokuku will gain some money because his style is amazing

> *Eric Skiff* and even downloaded some of the songs
I hear them when I do pixelart ^^

I been curious if more of the songs been used for the Nokuku game,
>I am going to use all of them. There are only 4 ~ 5 levels which only have nature and some wild nokuku, (and I am not satisfied with the construction so I am thinking of rebuilding the levels when I have Ideas for a story line to fit it all better together )



1. Yep,it works now,thank you! How I missed to listen to them - running the songs on Mp3 while playing wasn't the same! X3
And indeed he surely is,thanks to you and Nokuku,I found those awesome tracks of his : D
Indeed - it's a very cool thing he allow his music to be used for anyones project! Oh and that would be sweet,thats sure a cool idea :3

2. thats cool ^^ I too listened to some while I drawed :3

It's the reaction,it may take some enter hittings,and moving around til you find the right spot

That sure could improve it *nods*,thanks!

nokukuProject wrote:

Yeah - Im pretty sure it could surely be a useful and great thing to add!
it could be helpful and add to that your'e realy interacting with your'e Nokuku!
> I tought about it the last nights how to do it i am going to implement it after or in the middle of my giant to do list , probably in the end of the year -.- (My wish for chrismas to have more time didn’t come true ^^)

Awright,thank you very much! ^^ and aww XD
I do hope you had a nice Xmas event and did get some nice xmas gifts for making up for that at least if nothing else :3
I actuly don't mind how much long time it take,Im sure it eventualy find its way into the game whenever you can do it! ^^

nokukuProject wrote:

Im very flattered and happy you liked my ideas too,it's cool to hear that my idea may become as a welcome addition part of this neat game that will continue to grow,Im sure will make even greater as it expand!!: D
>I’ll see you on asasa! ;D

haha,yeah :3 - hopefuly there would be a chance for you to help me a bit to understand how to use it XD
Tried read the guide but it was just @__@'

nokukuProject wrote:

it's nice to see things you think yourself might be too complicated/complex,and yet you might be proven wrong and see that the ideas was not that extrem to make X3

I see,I see - well then,It's good to hear your'e not giving things up and surely,I am quite sure you might be able to see some differ now and then :3
Sorry to hear that things so far been the long taking ones ^^' But hopefuly,there might be some that may not be it coming in the future : D

nokukuProject wrote:

perhaps there is a chance the human parts coul be used for the owner idea at some point?
I did like the early screeny where it looked like human owner with it's nokuku pet partner exploring togheter
> This is indeed a coincidence. On of them is an event…. ;-(
The avatar is a difficult thing, I could make a dna-mix to create an avatar from those human body parts, but they are only few human breeds so the variety is very small and many games live from avatars with a wide range of customization. Maybe I just implement an upload pic function ^^ I know its cheap, but I have no better idea….

Hmm I see,thats quite interessting.hmm perhaps,but maybe the recolor human parts may be enough?
Colors range in wide variations and not all can be the exact color,no?Just saying X3
Ah well,but the pic uploading isn't bad either :3

nokukuProject wrote:

I thought from the start that the human parts was to customise own avatar of itself as a owner,but I was like eh? O.o when I saw it was a part of the Nokukus themself,haha X3
> Yeah, This ist true, I first planned to make an avatar with whom you can fight too but who is every time on the first position in your team but then I discovered by guiding an animal-like nokuku trough the level it is way more fun, so I decided to make no difference between human and animals. The first explanaition I write before is right, too it was a gradual effect while developing the game so they are more than one reason for that strange result ^^


Oh^,thats interessting - I did thought that you where the human and the pet walked after you,then in battle,the human wasn't present,just like how the battles is in Nokuku now - the human owner was just to show that *you* are there as the owner,but when it is battles,it's like poke'mon when you press a action and it is like the owner call out what action shall be peformed XD And now I come to think of a silly explenation of the sleeping and sitting animations for humans *wich I do think they must have that too,since theyre part Nokuku now* if it now was a human avatar instead,the sleeping or sitting could be a action to recover some health for your'e partner Nokuku * I noticed that Nokuku can sit/sleep when pressing down key in explorer mode*
so if you pressed down - both human and pet would do the sit or sleep,just to regain a bit of health once out of battle - even thought,that may sound too typical MMorpg like,perhaps? X3 But meh,now when the Nokuku is alone and capable to sit/sleep themself,that action could possible be done to them anyway,haha X3 I think being a Nokuku only in the explorer world is a nice touch thought,it's fun to be a animal rather then a human anyway ^^

nokukuProject wrote:

So,is it realy possible to join another when exploring,like 2 walking around on the areas and such?
>I thought about it in the last night, too ^^ But I unfornately this would be to much work (time) for me. Nothing is impossible and I love the idea, maybe in future. Give me 2 years ^^

Sure thing! I can wait ^^
I don't mind waiting 2 years or more for that,I'd say take so much time you need,but never feel too much stressed out :3

nokukuProject wrote:

New reply: Hmm I see,so no way to still keep your'e in the garden,and get a message popup asking you to allow mix with anothers - then suddenly you and your'e friend both got a egg in the garden?
> No, this is possible. It is not that complex and it would take 2 month, but I think the user interaction with the nokuku could be more important. (In my mind) What do you think?

Hmm,thats true - interaction sure is important,as this breed thing was just a fun idea to solve a easier way for those who want to breed but can't/don't want to trade theyre only one nokuku for the breeding purpose *those who don't have more then one,I mean* lol X3
I also thought this up as I was unsure of the trading system,how it worked - as if it was realy a limited trade,this could also be a easy breeding system for some people too XD But I got to know now that the trading is unlimited and is a releif to hear!

nokukuProject wrote:

If it is by trading - any chance you can trade your'e Nokuku back to yourself?
> Yeah of course I should have mentionied in the text above *dumb*, you can trade as much as you like back and forth only limited by the free account to trade one nkk per day. But you have the premium ^^


Ah okay,that is great to now! So those with the non premium accounts,they would have to send theyre nokuku,and wait til next day to be able to trade it back,I guess X3
Oh and yes,I wonder - will eggs be tradeable?
I am not sure if you can put eggs even in the Nokuku inventory.

nokukuProject wrote:

> when trading - does both need nokukus ready to trade,or you can still trade if one has none and the other has one?
Not yet, I wanted to implement a function for adopting offers but I am currently sticking on bug fixing… *-*



Oh okay,yeah bug fixing surely come first,but the adoption offers surely sound useful :3
In the meantime,I guess i could try let my sis catch a random Nokuku,while I go for a male one and trade them,
as she only have females only starters (one she created herself and a Pardu* .

new Reply: I been wondering what the *g* smiley means - I seen most,but that ones new for me XD
I thought it is used by english speaking people, too and I wrote it without thinking ^^° It means “grin” like smiling and adding gs increases the grin *lol* in german the word is “grinsen” so it is almost the same



Ah okay XD Nope,hasn't seen much of it on the net,to be honest,but now I know ! : D
I was curious to know when I saw my Nokuku go with that and was a bit puzzled lol



nokukuProject wrote:

I know some halfpet like sites who had that - was not fun T_T'
> Where? This sounds like a giant baby pet spam wave ^^


Sure was crazy X_X'
I remember it was some kind of silly make your'e own pet,where you could breed it with others to make more
pets of it - I can't recall what it was called,but I do think it may not exist anymore - but I do remember it was made of bigger sprite parts,and
I don't remember if you could interact with it or so,but I do remember that people could visit it,click and breed with theyre,then you could see how many offspring it had and visit the offsprings,I take it as the more the people visited your'e pet to have a offspring with theyres,the popular it was o.o'
Sound bizzare,I know - but when I tested it,I wasn't aware of this XD I think I seen this ability somewhere else in another game(s),but I might be wrong, I have to chek,but I know this one had that XD


nokukuProject wrote:

New Reply: Haha,I see - well it sure is a good reason,but as I got that poisen bug,plus my Nokuku not getting Gooseberry themself a lot - making them near the brink of death and unable to offer them gooseberry as a item suggestion, I thought at least Gooseberry could be a useful item.
What a catastrophe, you’re right ^^ I’ll remove the emergency fish fee for premium account users so you can cure them with it. Wait until the description of the fish changes to not lose money :-)


Thanks a lot! Yeah that sure can be a lifesaver indeed! ^^
I guess that fish thing is operated by me,so I don't hope that my Nokuku will activate it by lucky chance?

nokukuProject wrote:

Do Nokuku die of old age ?
> Not yet, I worried about users who trained her favourite nkk to a high level and then see it die and but I read about dying in the creatures wiki and an important thing for a real life feeling is this possibility . I not sure how they die. I don’t want to use a silly function like die over 70, maybe a heart that will become weaker I am not sure yet…


Yeah - the die part is sure a part that is sad,but adds the reality feeling.
Im not sure how much real you want Nokuku to become - as I myself don't like when things die,who does? I surely can relate to the feeling when you get attached to this special pet *or in this case,Nokuku..like Unaia :__:* and next thing you know,it's dead,but hey - thats a part of life,and everyone goes there,
and I can of course accept it,seen Unaia be my first Nokuku to pass away *that surely had me and it made me sad the first thing I found out*
as well when I raise Norns,Ettins and Grendels,heck I remember first experience with digital death was my first Norns in C1,allways stuck with me and I was younger back then too,so it had me feeling extra emotional and sad by crying ^^' I really dunno what to say about the death part - It's good to hear they do not die of old age *yet?* but still the death thing is possible if they get poisened..hmm
I am also glad that there exist no tombstones btwn - the way they die by just not existing anymore and can be veiwed via the skull icon is a nice approach.
Im just weird - but graves/tombstones or death crosses and funerals/Graveyeards in Real Life make me freak out X_X'
Is a thing that also scared me as a kid when I saw the image cover of the graveyard kit in C1,heh ^^'
I think I am with you there - not sure if the die by old age is a inviteable thing or not - I sort of find it ok that they may be able to die of the poisening,
but there is also the hit each other thing as mentioned that could cause death too,or so I think you said,hmm.
The not die of old age make me think sort of petz,as they grow to adult,they can't grow older and you can keep them as long as you want,unless you delete the file itself. I guess death is a way to make more room for Nokukus...but then I come to think,if there would be a possibility to sell a Nokuku for ingame money *was thinking NCP,not realy real people -alltought if that was allright,I guess that is not bad,but it probably end up with mass people rbibe up to a fantasy sum for theyre long bred Nokuku,or perhaps some would want more money depending on the level..*

I just hope I can try familirize with it,as Im so easily confussed right now over it,haha XD
