Welcome to Virtual Pet List - the fastest growing online games forum on the internet

Would you like to become a member of the largest and most successful virtual pets & sim games community on the internet today? We've been opened since 2011 and since then, we've been providing developers, artists, players and writers with the most relevant, up to date, quality and in depth content covering the entire online games community. So, if you just like virtual pet sites, we have you covered. But, if you prefer sim games, well we're here for you as well. However, if you're a new game developer and you're looking to show off your game to all of our members, then we'd love to hear all about your game in our sneak peeks forum. Just because our name is Virtual pet list doesn't mean pet games is the only thing we talk about. Our community talks about technology, making money, making art, writing and a lot more. So, please don't be afraid to say hello to everyone here because you never know what type of friends you'll make on our community. We strive to be friendly and offer positive discussions. We're very passionate, caring and hard working members of these niche, so if you hear about a new pet game from your friend, then it's highly likely that your friend found that game on our forum. If you want to learn anything about developing your own online game, then just go through our guides forum. You'll notice that whatever you're seeking on other developer's communities has more than likely already been talked about, researched and has already been put into good use by highly skilled developers.

  2. My favourite thing to code is something complex so I can feel proud about it.

  7. Breeding scripts. I like genetics. :p I'm less a fan of Wajas style picture breeding scripts.
    I also like to help others code, even though this can be ten times more frustrating than just doing it on your own.
     
  8. Battle systems.
     
  9. I absolutely love posting layouts. CSS is so much fun to play around with and you can't determine whether or not it's a good layout until your actually look at the final result and start tweaking it.

    Other than that, little Java projects are quite fun, and surprisingly, my engineering course got me to enjoy MATLAB (a programming language based entirely on matrix operations).
     
  10. My favorite thing to code, oddly, is mathematical formulas. I just love being able to see math in the works with something as simple as a petsite. <<----Nerd...lol
     
  11. @InnitInnit - MATLAB? Really? I hated that thing! Had to use it two years ago...and started skipping class, since it wasn't examined, and was only every taught in the class =P
    But we only used it for things that MS Excel could do with a single formula, so that's probably why I hated learning it - it served no purpose for me.
    I know it is capable of doing things that Excel can't do though, so I understand why other people would want to use it.
    And you can make it look prettier.
    But for me, Excel done what I needed, so I didn't feel like putting in the extra effort of learning something else =P

  12. Well it was boring at first when we were just learning how to use it for basic operations, but by the end we were modelling a rocket launch and landing. There was so much to it and it was quite fun, very mathematical and required lots of thinking. We were assessed on in though, so we couldn't skip classes!

  13. Okay, I can understand how that would be interesting, I'd like to do something like that!
    All we used it for was matrix multiplications, which can be done on excel without any prior setting up.
    I now understand why you enjoyed it more than me then! Think I picked the wrong course... =P
