BooPets News: Fuzzball Trophies, New Pet, and Makeovers!

Discussion in 'Virtual Pets News' started by Drea, May 28, 2012.

    Wow, ghouls and gals, we've got a lot of news for you all today!

    First of all, the Queen Fuzzball is happy that so many of her children have been brought back safe and sound, and would like to reward the top three BooVillagers who returned Fuzzballs to her!

    We have tallied up the scores and the following members have won these amazing Tombstones!
    1st. Bioinfection
    2nd. Sin
    3rd. Punk

    Congratulations to these three for their outstanding efforts, and thank you everyone else for helping to bring these babies home to their nest!

    We're not the only ones who have noticed the amount of love that went into bringing these guys home... it seems a new BooPet has arrived on the scene in a response to all the activity!
    Give a warm welcome to our newest BooPet, the Slib! This slimy creature originates from caverns deep underground, where runoff from limestone stalactites combines with ancient magical ores to produce a sort of living gel. Slibs begin their lives as marble-sized balls of goo and consume more runoff to increase in size. You can read more about this pet in the latest news post on

    This pet is also very special. It cannot be directly created. You will have to find some of its slime to transform your current BooPet into a Slib... so look out for this new random event!


    It seems the Slib wanted to share the love, especially after seeing so many fuzzballs returned, and has brought with it magical properties that have drastically changed the appearance of our beloved BooPets...



    Wow! What a change!

    We hope you stick around for future BooPets news! Have a frightful day, everyone!
  2. I'm gettin' me a Slib O_O <333
    LOVE the new pets :D
  3. @DreaDrea So does the Slib come in all the colors of the other pets?

  4. I feel like the pet quality decreased a bit here, honestly.

  8. I am really sorry you feel that way. Personally I dont think the quality has decreased; they are just different from the old style. Bexxy did a great job with them but her style is widely used and we aimed for something a little more unique to BooPets.

    I mean when I compare the new Were Spider to the old Were Spider - I personally think the new one is spectacular!

  9. I don't think the way I worded it was the best way xD Quality is definitely subjective, but the pets have changed a lot. The canine-like one (forget what they're called) looks like a completely different pet especially, when it was my absolute favorite before... now I think it's the worst one. I also feel like the anatomy could use a lot of work and the texturing on some of the pets looks unfinished. They're not really that bad, but there's just the little things and they fact they just look nothing like the pets I adopted when I joined anymore.

    Edit: I can't even tell why the new were spider would be called a were spider... it just looks like the spider in a different pose, not furry and feral like before.

  10. The new ones anatomy is just way to off for me, and also the shading.
    I am sure some like the new style though.
  11. I absolutely adore the makeover. :O
  12. I think you are talking about the Malvox? The style of the Malvox was very child/puppy like, the new Malvox is a more defined adult version. Indeed its a big change - but I honestly believe its for the better of the site.

    The anatomy is indeed not perfect, but its not supposed to be as they have been stylised to a heavy degree otherwise they would simply lose their charm.

    Thank you!
  13. Shocked me to start with but i understand why you did it and i like alot of the new pets so i can't complain

    great job ;)
  14. I LOVE the pet revamps. I agree with whoever it was on the last page that said it's subjective, because it is. It's all down to individual taste. I love the shading and the textures, as well as the dynamic poses. Great job, Boopets team!
  15. Can we see what the pets looked like before for people who don't go on BooPets?
  16. I currently haven't set this up on BooPets but will make it available tomorrow. For now you are able to refer to this image.

    Regards, Paul.
  17. Wow that awkward moment when you realize you thought the hopi was just an owl with two giant eyes until this point...
  18. lol! Believe me Kiara you weren't the only one. Bexxy will tell you when I first received them from her I argued that it looked like two eyes, I still say its two eyes but ey! Hence better distinction with the new Hopi! :D

    Regards, Paul.
  19. While I do like these a lot, I feel like they are a bit of a step down. The previous ones were great (I can understand wanting a unique style though, so I feel this change was justified, just didn't come out as good quality as the previous). The spider pet definitely feels like an improvement, but then we have this:

    [​IMG] new

    Definitely not bad, just different @_@

  20. I cannot express how much I love these makeovers! The old pets were cute, but unfortunately I never got attached to them, and I hadn't been as active as I would like because of that. This will definitely be changing, though! I can't wait to see what else you guys have in store for us in the future. <333
