    So, this update is about 12 days late... For a reason! I'm currently sunbathing in sunny Florida and checking out the Disney parks. I don't have access to my PC (Where I happen to save all my DN related files) or image editing programs. So I have limited resources for this month's update. Expect more in about two week's time.

    Until then, an update on the coding front. Icy, Dragon's Nest's programmer assures me that the backend of the site is mostly done, and that we can go into testing in about 6 weeks time. I'll probably begin closed testing during early June (So we have stuff for the selected participants to do), so eventhough he hopes 6 weeks should do it, I still want to invite people to a nice game.

    Also, we have a news page! Simply go to http://www.fantasysim.net/news.php to keep afloat of all the latest happenings inside the nest, and to see our planned features.

    And to top it all off, enjoy two more previews of marvelous dragons... Is that even a dragon? But yes - We won't be limiting ourselves to wings and scales, so even if you are indifferent about dragons, we have other creatures just waiting to be hatched!

    Also, for those of you who don't know, we released a very early preview of the site at VPC and other Virtual Petsite forums!

    Thanks!

    That's good to hear - is there a set release date by any chance or not yet?

    We'll be aiming for release by June 1st. That will be our closed beta period. Users who sign up and get accepted during closed beta will also get a limited edition dragon adoptable.

    We don't have screenshots for our features yet, but as Icy has said, they will more than likely make an appearance in the next preview. We will be having games, contests and events on the site, as well as allowing guests to adopt and later transfer that adoptable to their account using a unique code. :3 We will also be having an exploration feature where users can find dragons and other items, but we will show everyone in due time!

    Yeah, I didn't update it because I'm lazy, lol.
    We've got a huge chunk of features done, along with art.
    We'll post a preview soon, and I'll get to updating the news tomorrow.
    Sorry about that. :)

    We're all lazy toads, haha. We have shops and games, so I'm happy. I believe forums are being worked on, @Icy keeps getting on my back about the layout for forums (we'll be having on-site forums but with the navbar ontop so there's lots of rooom), but he has got a lot of the site coded already. Icy said we have about 10 or so things we need adding until we have the site ready to be tested, but we've already thought of a list of people to test the site. In the next preview, I believe we'll also be opening applications for Closed Beta.

    So far we also have some art, with 14 dragons (4 stages each, too), some items, a big npc dragon, and I'll be working on a neat world map. It's been a hectic two months but we're getting there. With both Icy, @Elz and I covering most aspects of what needs to be done for the site, we have some money left to advertise. We will be building a community based game with monthly events planned for 2012. 2011 will be based around testing, and getting the word out that we're open.

    Originally posted this on Dragon Nest. Yeah. We're gonna have a slight change of name, but it's cool 'cause the URL for the site will be dragon-nest.org. It doesn't flow as well as Dragon's Nest but it was our only option. :3

    @osiem - It wouldn't have been possible without you. The sketches and the conch dragon, and just everything you've done for us so far is amazing. The sketches just keep getting better and better. :3

    We're currently in beta testing, we've been busy fixing up bugs and whatnot, my apologies! I'll mention it to Icy and Becca about getting another preview sometime soon. :)
