Ketucari Beta Week - Closed

Fri Jun 24, 2016, 10:14 AM by Matriarchs-Haunt:iconmatriarchs-haunt:


Welcome to the Ketucari beta event!

Ends Saturday July 2


Ketucari is now open and ready to welcome our first wave of beta members! Make sure to read this journal in full, as it'll explain how this event will work and what's going to happen with the group in the future. We hope you guys will enjoy what we've begun to create and will stick with us to see what becomes of the project!

What exactly is the group's beta phase?

    We've been working on putting this group together for the past few months, trying to make it as much like a "real game" as we can. It was previously our intention to wait until the group was completely finished before we opened it, but I (Umbrafen) have come to the realization that the group's development simply cannot go forward without seeing how some of our systems actually work, and getting the opportunity to fine tune them. It goes without saying that you can't do that without players, so we've spent the last few weeks getting the group tidied up and functional!

Basically, we will be temporarily opening up the group for the first ketucari owners, as well as handing out free genotypes, to help us test and tweak the game before it's opened up permanently. This opening will last only a week, so hop on board while you can!

What's expected of beta members?

Simple. Just play the game! By participating, you'll help us find out what numbers and systems need fixing up so that we can get the group running as smoothly as possible. We'll be wide open to suggestions and any feedback you'd like to offer that will help up fine tune the game. 

All aspects of the game are subject to massive changes. We will listen to anything you think we should make simpler or more conducive to continuous game play!

What happens when beta week closes?

Hopefully, you guys will continue playing the game and we can continue developing it. Other than that, nothing will really change other than the fact that we will no longer be handing out free genotypes. Since beta members will be able to breed their ketucari, new members will still be able to join the group by purchasing genotypes from existing members as well as admin-offered customs if there is enough interest. 

There is no set time frame for when group development will be considered "finished", but when that happens we plan to open up some sort of adoption center so that new members will have an easier time joining.

Are there any other events I should be aware of?

Yes, indeed! Here's a list of what else we have going on:

Admin Applications
Semi-Custom Imports & Roulette Litters
Monster Mayhem Contest



I'm interested! How do I get started?

Arrow left  Here is a good place to start: Getting Started and FAQ
You can find all sorts of useful links there and begin exploring the group to see if it floats your boat!
Next, click the join button on our front page to become a member of the group! Join requests are automatically accepted. 

Arrow left  Make a journal with a link to the group and our beta event. We want to rake in as many people as possible over the next week so that we can get as much feedback and test subjects as we can!

Arrow left Your next task will be to figure out what you'd like for your free genotype! This is a "thank you" from the group for taking part in our beta phase! Read the limitations below carefully:

Gray Dot Bullet - F2U!  Bases for these genotypes will be limited to buff, bronze, brown, and charcoal. You can find what those look like here, under base colors! Design Guides
Gray Dot Bullet - F2U! Only the smooth feather type is available.

As soon as an admin confirms your genotype and gives you the lineage, you are free to design it! Follow the instructions here to submit your ketucari for approval and upload: Submitting Your Ketucari

Once that's done, you can begin taking part in the group!

At the end of beta week, we will be randomly selecting one of the sign-ups to receive a free fantail semi-custom!

Are we aloud to use a silver color as the base coat? (Sorry its just all the text is getting confusing)

Matriarchs-Haunt Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2016
Silvering should go over the base and shouldn't be used as the base itself :)

Question! If we buy a semi-custom, are we still allowed to claim a free geno as well? And although we are not allowed to sell free genos, may they be traded for other genos in the future?

Thank you! uwu

Hey, I have a quick question. Would a poll also be alright to advertise the group? I personally don't have that many watchers so the best advertisement you'd get for me if it stays featured on my frontpage for random passers-by. I however do have a big feature journal planned for all the groups I'm in, later this week and it would push the advertisement journal back. I feel like a cheat like that, since the advertisement would be next to nothing. I do however have polls atm which I don't directly plan on using and that would stay featured on my frontpage a good while longer so I was wondering if it's a good alternative or if you guys are 100% set on it being a journal?

If me and my friend both wanted our genos with the same markings, is there a way to have them not be related? (we're roomies and we ARPG together all the time)

Ahhhhh, would it be too late to ask for her lineage to be changed? comments.deviantart.com/1/6165… My friend and I were talking about getting our two together, until she got hers and we saw they were siblings- he's been uploaded already, but Zeez hasn't been looked at yet

What if we can't design, could we have someone else design it for us? These look really cool and an interesting species and i'd be interested in joining, but can't design, myself :3
