    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.

  2. Guest,

    Maniapets is a site in developmental. The name "Maniapets" is one that one won't forget easily. Two common words "Mania" and "Pet" make it easy for people to remember and access the site. Maniapets has been in devopment since Dec. of 2011. Not very long, but i've (personally) put over 200 hours into it. These are the things it has completed in a basic form, if its more advanced i will list beside it what the specifications are. :)
    -Bank (and a couple set settings that if you reach a certain amount of money in your bank, it will let you achieve a goal, which will then automately be posted on the news update bar for the entire site to see, until a new player achievement comes up)
    -Player Achievement Bar at the top of the site.
    -User login, security pages (pages you can access when you are logged in), and logout is finished
    -User information on user profile (That that user can edit to make correct), The user profile also includes the users pets, the users mood, the users current job (which hasn't been programmed into the site, so right now it just shows unemployed for all users).
    -Friend feature installed, (the friend feature was the last thing I did, and I finished 90% of it, you will need to get another programmer to tie up the loose ends, but this feature allows you to see all of your friends that are online on the welcome page of the site for you and you only.)
    -On the welcome page it has another box that shows the four newest items that you added to the site (One of the admin features is to add items to the site.)
    -Item page, although not all that pretty, it serves its purpose in showing the AVG selling price for that item in user shops, and showing the wholesale value, and the type of item, and where you can get it. (On this page there is a box where you can put your code for an ad, to help you make more money!)
    -There are Seven different buttons going across the top of the site, News, Pets, Personal, Games, Money, Chat, Villages. All take you to new pages that show you between 3-7 different parts of the site that you can do, now currently only half of those things are programmed to do, but i did most of the hard ones first (you know what they say, just get the hard things out of the way first and everything will be simple).
    -Theres an OLD button beside the user achievement and that will show you all the user achievements that recently happened (The last 15).
    -On the welcome page it shows images if you need to collect your daily interest at the bank, if not it wont show an image, It shows an "adopt a pet" image, all the time, until you install a pet limit.
    -There is currently a quest page, but no quests.
    -There is a very ADVANCED search page, that will search for things near to what you say and other such things. There are a few different things it will search under, like Pet names, User names, Item names, User shop names, etc.
    -User shop page, where the user can sell their items that they have in their backpack. (The whole system is done, you just need to make it that the money gets added up and theres a collect button for the user, everything else is done, even the records on whats sold and by who, just need a collect button.
    -Instant chat on Maniopia Map (No map, just the chat next to it)
    -Nice Feedback center
    -FULL and beautiful ManiaStore, where you can buy and sell things, everythings done you just need to put items in there (I have the account upgrade done and its amazing), and finish where they actually buy using money :)
    -There's a freebies page.
    The villages page is set up. just no map.
    -10 Stores, that are DONE, and beautiful.
    -Backpack
    -Closet (The closet is another page, but uses the same techno from backpack, but theres another database for that, but its done, you just need a new pic cuz im using the one from backpack.
    -Bookshelf (not finished, but started)
    -My Toolbox (Same conditions as closet)
    -My setting page is no completed but the page exist.
    -Admin Trace user's activity
    -Admin add promo (for ManiaStore)
    -Admin Add Update
    -Chat boards (3) One is for Upgraded members only. (The boards are AMAZING)
    -Money system
    -Pet system
    -Feed/play system done
    -Weather system done!
    -Private Messaging done (along with save messages and so on)
    -Game page and structure layed out, but not finished
    -Pet Groomer, Partially finished, but structured.
    -My Pets page
    -Featured sites page there but not done.
    -Site updates WITH COMMENTS very advanced :)
    -Staff page there but not done.
    -There's about 250 pages total, about 125 are done.
    -Crons for shops are there, and cron for weather updating system is there.
    -On front page shows the number of pages loaded and the number of people online, and the number of registered users.
    -The Join area is disabled, but the page is fully intact. Secretly. lolz :) Right now it just shows a image that basically says were not open yet.
    -You get about 10 months of hosting for http://www.maniapets.com/.
    -You get about 100+ images that are already on the server (53 Are items).
    -Error page for page not found. (Editable, but nice already).
    I think that about raps it up. There might be a few nice little details im forgetting, but theres nothing bad or wrong with the site, I just dont have the time nor the interest in continuing it anymore. :/

    The site has SO MUCH potential its unbelievable, the name only is worth so much for being so practical and popular. The domain alone would be nice and worth bidding on. I am going to let you guys bid on this site. You get everything in the databases, everything on the server, everything that i listed basically, + full ownership to Maniapets @ all other parts of it.

    I do have a reserve, but I would like to start it at $1. I will keep the bidding going on til the 18th, if the reserve isn't met, i will repost starting at the reserve, but i think the reserve will be met. :)

    So basically right now you can have a really nice workable amazing petsite for $1. Let the bidding begin.

    Starting bid: $1.00
    Min. Increase: $0.50

    Happy Bidding, for more on what the site looks like you can go to http://www.maniapets.com/ or go to http://www.virtualpetlist.com/showthread.php/9861-Maniapets-Sneak-Peek?highlight=maniapets which was the only sneak peak let to the public. This site has never been opened. And this petsite was NOT built on a pre-script, it was build by me.

    Maniapets has been sold for $130

    Run and manage it, of course.

    But @PaulSonnyPaulSonny might also be interested in this.


    You're very welcome <3


    This would be a nice investment for you
