    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Beginner's Guide to Misticpets.com

    -----------------------------------
    THE BASICS
    -----------------------------------

    Joining the Site
    http://www.misticpets.com/?r=39995
    Register your account, await your confirmation e-mail, then validate your account and you're good to go! When you log in for the first time, you'll receive a message on the site with a few useful forum links, and the link to collect your free welcome pack of items.

    Looking Around
    http://www.misticpets.com/index.php
    You find some of the site navigation links to your left (for example, "Explore") and some at the top (for example, "Items"). Click around a bit and see what you can find! Why not go look at your items to see your shiny new stuff from the welcome pack? You might also want to visit the preferences (around the bottom of the left navigation) and change anything that you want to - you do this by clicking the big buttons at the bottom of the "Preferences" page, such as "Profile Setup".

    Exploring the World
    http://www.misticpets.com/explore.php
    There's a big world to explore, but be aware that some of the locations haven't been fully discovered yet and so you can't visit them for the moment.

    Shopping and Trading
    http://www.misticpets.com/shops.php
    http://www.misticpets.com/user_trades.php
    You can find the shops in their different locations on the map, but easier than that is to just visit the Shops page to see them all! Buy some food to feed your pet, or some toys for it to play with. Another option is to trade your items with other users, possibly a way to get some good deals.

    Your Shop and Your Gallery
    http://www.misticpets.com/user_shop.php
    http://www.misticpets.com/preferences.php?action=gallery
    You can keep your own shop to sell items to other users in, and also an item gallery to show off your finds. Your shop can be a good way to make some money! Price comparison is available when setting prices, so you can see how your prices compare to other users' shops.

    -----------------------------------
    YOUR PETS
    -----------------------------------

    Create a pet
    http://www.misticpets.com/createapet.php
    Go to this page if you wish to create a new pet, to pick its species, colour, name, personality traits and gender. There are many species and colours available, so take a good look before choosing! You may have up to 5 pets.

    Pet Pound
    http://www.misticpets.com/pound.php
    In the "Adopt" option, you can adopt pets that other users have abandoned, for a fee. On the "Abandon" page, you can abandon your pet for a fee instead! In the "Donate" section, you can help the pets in the pound out by donating the requested item, which will also gain you loyalty points.

    Taking Care of Your Pet
    http://www.misticpets.com/inventory.php
    Your pet's hunger and mood will decrease over time, and to take good care of your pet you'll need to feed it and play with it. Food and toys can be bought in the shops, or alternately be received from the Pomme Tree, Giveaway, and other means. You can use your items on your pet from your inventory page, but you can also choose to place the items in your Toy Box or Food Box, shown on the right sidebar beneath your pet - this gives you easy access to the items whenever your pet needs them. To use the items, click the appropriate box, and then the item that you wish to use.

    Increasing Your Pet's Stats
    http://www.misticpets.com/battleportal.php
    In the Training Room, you can train your pet for a fee. It's possible to increase all stats except intellect this way - intellect is increased by reading books to your pet.

    -----------------------------------
    PLACES TO VISIT
    -----------------------------------

    The Pomme Tree
    http://www.misticpets.com/pomme.php
    Pick a free pomme every day - it's a food that you could feed to your pet, or sell if you got a rare one!

    The Bamboo Beach Resort
    http://www.misticpets.com/bamboobeach.php
    Make a quick visit for a daily good surprise. Extended stay costs 500 MC per day, and if you're having trouble taking care of your pet, it might be a good option.

    The Forest Finds
    http://www.misticpets.com/g_forestfinds.php
    Search the forest and hunt for birds. If you find one, you get to keep it! Birds are among the items that can be attached to your pet, as a sort of "pet pet".

    -----------------------------------
    GAMES
    -----------------------------------

    http://www.misticpets.com/games.php
    Be aware that you won't be able to play the games unless you first create or adopt a pet!

    Games: Quests

    Strange Traveler
    http://www.misticpets.com/travelerquest.php
    When you accept his quest, the Strange Traveler will ask you for an item. If you manage to get the item and return with it to him, he will give you MC in return - usually a greater value than the cost of the item, but if you bought an overpriced item in the user shops, that's not always the case. Remember to always look in the Mistica Shops and maybe a few other places first!

    Volcan's Quest
