Room of the Week - BrandonXX

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

room_32_brandonxx

BrandonXX’s apartment is an apartment within itself, seeing as there is an immense amount of rooms. One example would be the theater room, as shown in the picture provided. On particluar room I found really nice was the kitchen that was flooded with stools. Perhaps he is preparing to have a dinner party?

Glitch Week - Earn SoBucks!

Monday, March 8th, 2010

wanted_poster

This is the first ever “Glitch Week”.  During the week, we will be paying SoBucks for good bug reports that we can use to fix the glitches! With the recent Shockwave Player update, there have been more glitches than usual. Also there are a lot of old bugs that need to be taken care of.  So for this week we want to encourage everyone to  submit as many good bug reports as possible.

Specifically this is how it works:  You find a glitch with the game and then write clear “steps” to reproduce the glitch. If we are able to reproduce the glitch and fix it, we will pay you 25  SoBucks! Use the following format when writing a bug report:

Step 1 -  Do this
Step 2  - Now do this
Step 3 -  Do that
Step 4 -  You get the glitch error

So for example, this is what an actual report would look like:

Step 1 -  Take out your Piano
Step 2  - Play a few notes
Step 3 -  Open your Mail
Step 4 -  You get an Oops Error

You can submit your bug report on the forum in this topic,  so others can see. This might help avoid people working on the same glitch.  Or if you feel the glitch is somewhat sensitive and shouldn’t be viewed by the public, you can use our bug report form on the support page.

We look forward to getting your bug reports! Just remember, we pay SoBucks for glitches we actually fix using your steps. Simply submitting 50 bug reports doesn’t automatically mean you’ll receive 1250 SoBucks.  We need to fix it first, then we’ll give you the SoBucks.  Also while we are only accepting eligble bugs during “Glitch Week”, if we end up fixing a bug using your steps 5 weeks from now, we will still givie you the SoBucks. So don’t freakout if you haven’t recieved any SoBucks at the end of this week. :)

Thanks  everyone!

Room of the Week - DixieDelight

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

room_31_dixiedelight1DixieDelight’s apartment has a great balance of space. It is not overcrowded with furniture, but just enough to show that there is someone living in that particular place. There also seems to be an abundant amount of sitting areas, but more couches is nothing to be upset about. Quite the contrary actually! Be sure to check out her apartment.

New Feature: Put Clothes in Your Apartment!

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Cevans Choosing Apparel

You can now place clothes from your inventory into your Apartment! Create massive “walk-in” closets and show off your complete wardrobe!

To place a clothe s item in your apartment, select the “Drop” option for a particular item in your inventory.

We also fixed several bugs with the Room Editor, so it should be easier to rotate cabinet objects and there should be less floating items. We have a few more exiciting new apartment features coming within the next week or two, so stay tuned!

Enjoy!
