Cooking Up Suggestions and Feedback

Posted by Staff on 4 Nov 2016, 4:43 pm


Hello all, just a couple quick things to discuss so I hope that you can bear with me here for just a few minutes. And I know that I am putting the funnest bit of news first but please be sure to read all the way through, it’s worth it, I promise.

Cooking Career?

We are in the early stages of development with a potential new Villager career path, cooking! But before we continue the long journey that is creating a brand new career, we’d like to hear what you think. While there seems to be quite a bit of interest coming through the Suggestion box, we are aware that that is still only representative of a few individual opinions. So I have created a thread for polite discussion with staff and other users where you can come and share your thoughts and even ask questions about this potential new job for your Villagers. I know all of us on Staff are looking forward to seeing what you have to say.

Paintie Emails

We’ve seen concern raised about Paintie Emails ([email protected]) not being answered, sitting for a long time, ect. So we are going to see what we can do to fix the situation and make sure you all are getting everything you need from myself and the Paintie Staff but to do this we’re going to need your help.

To start off, please be sure to have a clear subject line for your Contact Us form or Email, it helps to more quickly sort out what is what. Below is a list of the most common types of Emails we receive and are examples of subject lines we’d love to see you all using.

-Paintie Rejection Inquiry
-Existing Paintie Fix
-Wiped Paintie Replacement or Refund
-Paintie Base/Sketch Check
-Other Paintie Issue

Email/Contact Us Form:

Username & Number:
Villager ID Number:
Rejection Notice Received or Reason for Wipe: (if applicable)

Requiring some of this information may seem redundant but we want to make sure no one accidentally falls through the cracks and that we have all needed information available to get you a response as quickly as possible.

*If you have sent in a form or email and not gotten a response after a week, please resend and PM myself Admin_Mateusz to check and make sure that your email has actually gotten to our inbox. Unfortunately we have had some glitching here and there with lost emails and lost responses.*

Suggestions & New Features

For anyone that might not be aware, we added the Idea Development section into the forums a little over a month ago. And we are glad to see so many people using this feature to discuss and gather their thoughts into full fledged little idea bundles that are ready to be sent along to our Suggestions email!

But I have seen that some of you are concerned about your emails not being read and only receiving an automatic response so I am here to address that for you. I know that for some, that auto response can be a bit discouraging but please know that all of your emails are being seen and read, by me personally. None of you are invisible and your suggestions are appreciated, I have a whole list of things set aside to discuss with my fellow Staff members all thanks to you busy little beta bees. I hope that you all enjoy the little tweaks that we’ve approved that will be coming your way soon.

    • cooking would be great! maybe we can make special food items that replenish health in battles or speed up cooldowns?

    • I have to agree with StripedPanther on most of issues going on with painties.

      Although I am glad that you acknowledge the email issue, but it does seem unreliable. Like what if the admin is offline or doesn't reply themself? I mean they are 1 person and they can easily forget as much as the next person does.

    • I am COMPLETELY on board with @BeeperArts' and Xenodragon11 's suggestions! While the idea of a cooking career is cute and fun, it would be the ideal way to remove the need for the worker function while still creating a limiting factor to villagers' ability to work!

    • About emails - should we resubmit bug reports without responses? I've had four that haven't been answered for about a month now.

      Just, something about how to expedite that process or reasoning why something might take a while would be very helpful.

    • I like cooking, but only if we dont LITERALLY have to feed our villagers. This is SUCH A CHORE to do and ruins a lot of the fun. If cooking is implemented I think making it a stat boost type thing would be best and entice more people to use it. Since you could use better foods to add a boost on things like gathering or fighting.

      For painties I would really appreciate better rules and regulations on both the emails and painties themselves. I've had a paintie removed after it being accepted for three months and a customer denied a paintie uploaded because no one seems to understand the regulations enough to know whats "inappropriate" or not.

    • y E S I want to cook all the animals

    • OMG YESSS WE NEED A NEW CAREER! I think cooking could tie in perfectly with the game flow. We could buy a recipe book with recipes from each village (a recipe book for each village), and make food. Plus we could sell food for another way to earn money. They could also gain cooking skills, and maybe explorers could bring back rare recipes, and we could also use meat from monsters to cook too! I think this is brilliant! The food could be used to replenish energy for villagers, especially warriors, and maybe certain foods could give temporary buffs. Explorers could harvest food to, along with warriors.

    • Guys I am increasingly impressed with your attempts to communicate. No sarcasm.

    • Perhaps, for the cooking career, you can remove the "10 active workers" and make it a food for work type of deal, where you can't work if your stomach is empty?

    • Does this mean hungry villagers that when hungry cant work? I really like this idea, makes the game more complex, id much rather have starving cant work villagers than having only 10 active at a time :)
