    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

    We're a Virtual Pets and Sim Games Community. We have a lot of Virtual Pet Sites Owners and Sim Games Owners that frequently visit, along with Artists, Writers and Programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our List of Virtual Pet Sites has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.
  2. Have you read and commented on any of our Interviews or Reviews yet?

    How much would something like this go for?

    Would $1,000 be a bit too much?

    Point Being, I have a Virtual Pet Site I might be selling soon.

    have you got any examples to show the quality of art and coding? That may help people decide if it's too much or not

    That's a lot of scripts. I don't think $1k would be too much.

    You ask for a lot of functionality. It is a lot of work. I think that if you get a good and experienced programmer to do that for 1k. You have won the jackpot.

    You also ask for a lot of design work. In items and pets and in overall site design. That is something that a good programmer cannot do. My question is: is that part of the 1k or not?

    My personal opinion would be that you need different skillsets for a virtualpet site and for the site that you have in mind a minimum budget of 10k. You need to be the project manager yourself to make sure that you get the site that you have in your mind.

    I've seen somebody do that sort of thing for $750 but she made it from scratch and then sold it. So you told her the ideas and such and she'd do it.... But it seems reasonable I suppose XDD

    Yes, but the site is already done, I made it, I was just wondering if I should sell it to the community and or if I should open it and it work it as my own, many variables involved right now with if I would be able to have the time to run something like this, but it's built and it includes all of that. :) I was just wondering if I could get what I need out of it :)

    Well, do you have the urge to keep it open and be the admin or get into a company/start up a company that will develop online games? You could get A LOT of money out of it :D

    Yes, but at the same time I want to get the money back out of it, and buy something nice, it's taking that initial risk that worry's me X.X

    I'm actually quite interested in this, as I've always wanted to put my talents into a petsite, however I have absolutely no knowledge of coding beyond design coding such as HTML or CSS. xD I'd just be able to moderate, write storyline, and produce all of the artwork and layout... which I could do with this! Exciting!

    Do you think you could PM me with some more details? A screenshot would be lovely, actually. Once I know more about the site and how it works, I'll be willing to make an offer. c:

    I'd also be interested. Could you pm me some more details? Or possibly a preview account that I could look at? Thanks!

    Once I get it up on its own domain (.com) I will show everyone. I wanted to make sure everything is perfect before I started paying for the whole thing lol :)

    Oh okay, but is it possible to at least see a couple of screenshots before then?
