Ok, so, as we all know, the site's peaking 25k players now, and the more people we get the harder it is to get probably the number one desired dog on the site: Ghosties.
It's been quite a while since we've been able to breed ghosties on here. While I don't want that to start happening, I want to say that ghost dogs are rarer with the more people we get, and that I, and other people, think it's about time we had a ghostie auction or an item that made your dog into a ghost.
In the past, I've seen many many players voice their want of ghost dogs and their frustration at how hard it is to get one. When offered the idea that we have an auction for one ghost of each breed on the site, they all agreed, and our reasoning is that it's a great way to drain extra money from the economy of ala, plus I'm sure the site would get tons of donations so that the players could bid on them. To change the coat color would be simple, and they aren't breedable because of the default base coat, so I think it'd be fine to put just nine or ten more ghosts on the site. My reasoning on the numbers are that huskies are no longer even remotely rare in ghost form, and nor are peekers, but I personally think that a ghost corgi without the puppy coloring would be awesome, so wed have all the breeds except huskies (or we could have them, not a problem if we do) and maybe corgis up for auction in ghost form.
As I mentioned earlier, we could do an item that makes your dog into a ghostie rather than an auction and have, say, a limited number of them, like 5 or 6. We could auction or raffle them off, and I think it'd be pretty cool, getting to make any dog of your choice a ghost. The user could use the item n the dog and then post a thing in the IH to have a mod/admin switch the base coat for them, and then there you go! A ghostie of the player's choosing. <3
As I brought this up earlier with one of ala's mods (who has asked to remain anonymous), we had a discussion and agreed that this idea would overall be a smart one as it didn't have any cons to it, only pro's. And I quote:
"It would be easy as pie to make a dog with the wrong coloured base [you used to be able to do this in the custom tool to make a ghost dog]. So there isn't a challenge for coding there. Just make it non passable to the pups and I really think it would be the bee's knees to have. Make a lot of people happy to have nonhusky ghosies wandering about too :>"
So what do you think? Like it? Don't be afraid to criticize this idea, either. Write what you think about it. Support? Great! Don't support? Why not? Explain your thinking. ;D
