The Bestiary

Postby Rosehill » December 25th, 2015, 7:24:36 pm

A new feature, the Bestiary, has just been released.

Access the Bestiary here: http://magistream.com/bestiary.php

Go see the News Post for more details.

This thread is for discussing the feature, for asking questions about it and suggesting improvements. ^.^

//Edited to add: January 4th:
  • It is now possible to filter the Bestiary data to better and more easily find what you are looking for.
  • Renaming cost added to the list view and individual creature pages
  • Added shop links and cost for creatures gotten from shops to the individual creature pages
  • Added info of possible breeding partners and breeding outcomes to the individual creature pages

//Edited to add: February 3rd:
  • Added information about how many of each creature you own both on the main bestiary page and on each individual creature's page.
  • Each column is now sortable by clicking on the column name.

//Edited to add: February 5th:
  • The creature amount on each individual creature's page now shows a break-down of how many eggs, how many hatchlings and how many adults you have along with info of how many of each are frozen.

Oooh I'm so excited! I saw that you were working on this earlier.

EDIT: Now I can read everything without having to go to the wiki. This is really cool, Rosehill!

Now I don't have to go to the wiki to figure out if a pet can breed :D
Feel free to mine my keep! I also do breeding requests; PM to ask about my prices.

An idea for the search function, a way to search for pets with rotating sprites, like ones that change between day and night, or just rotate thoughout the day. And/or, which have dimorphic sprites an which don't.

this is so cool! I'd been waiting for this! That way we can look up the creatures instead of searching them endlessly on other's pages, or in past threads! :D Great job! This will be useful indeed!

EEEYES. XD No more browsing multiple pages and wikis just to see whether a certain pet is retired or breedable. Thank you so much for this inclusion. <3 This feature is certainly very sorely needed. ^.^

Awesome! I love that you can see which creatures have side art easily - I always miss those! And I also like having all the stage's descriptions on one same page :D

A suggestion... Hm, would it be possible to have the bestiary telling you how many creatures of each we have... And a 0 for those we don't own? I know about the site's checklist, but that one only lists the species you own if I'm not mistaken. A tool that tells you what you don't have yet might come in handy!
