Users must be willing to work directly with staff and must be easily reachable should they be selected. Users should be open minded and mature enough to accept critique of their work.

How can you contribute?

Do you enjoy making maps? Or are you a mesh maker? Perhaps you like to create new in game textures. Currently we are seeking users who can do any of these things. If you are selected you will work together with the staff to produce new content for the up coming community patch.

From what I know, there is no foreseeable release date as they are going to have to take time to accept creators, then start working on the content and piecing the maps/content together and putting them on the server.

Well, this does seem like a RATHER great idea. The community helps with the staff? Oh boy. Can't wait to see what the staffers and modders, mappers and texturers will do for the next patch! When this patch comes out, I bet the servers will be so full. Gonna go create a new character for the update, when it comes.

I absolutely love this.
I honestly cannot wait to start working on some newer maps to share/submit, but I did happen to share some of my older ones. Love seeing all different kinds of talent from others on the game and what they can do with map making and such!

Giving members the opportunity to contribute is fantastic!
There is no doubt we have some very talented people among us,
I am truly excited to see what they come up with.
There is a lot of creativity around, that is for sure!
It is a brilliant thing and I am very positive to this!

ooooo! I Can't wait! I wish I could show you all my hard work of which i lost... I worked on a FH map for a month and a half and lost it. I'll see if I could recover it... Being part of this game for so long I'd just love to create content for it. I better get to work!

I'd love to do some map making, but I'm already trying to make an IT server. I could give ideas though, and maybe when I can't work on the server or don't need to do anything, I could do some map making?

I just really wish some things from old FH were in the new one, like South Pole. All the maps feel similar, which is a bit annoying, but the maps are done very well! Only a bit of lag issues and that's mostly on a busy day or old laptop, and usually turning the camera away from a crowed or object filled spot helps.

Good luck with future updates!

We're looking to work with people who are interested and eager to work with us to make something nice for the patch. The map-makers we would be seeking out would be the ones creating the maps, for the most part. If you are interested, I would recommend checking out the Maps Submissions thread, here (https://feral-heart.com/smf/index.php?topic=59824.0).

The concerns you brought up about the current maps are something we are taking into consideration as we give users an opportunity to work with us. We want to see what suggestions you have-- and allow you the opportunity to create a map with us. On the thread linked above, we're just trying to get a general idea of what you're capable of, and what your maps look like. c:

I'll take a look into it! Just wondering, if I make a map, can I only use FH's objects/ground textures/skys and weather that come with the new download of the game or can I use things like WoW trees and plants or my own skys and weathers, etc? I have a few screenshots of a map I'm working on, but it has a lot of WoW trees and plants.

No, you aren't limited to default meshes and textures; you can use any kind (including WOW) of meshes and textures you like! If you have a particular object or texture that you have created yourself, that's an added bonus. As long as the map has been decorated and heightmap created by you, you're good to go. c:

Thank you! I use a lot of download meshes now to make my maps. I'm not very good at making maps, but I'll give it a try to see if I can get into some map making for the actual game!

I might be able to make terrain textures- or possibly even item textures. I don't have much knowledge on actually /creating/ the texture (applying it to the game.), but I do consider myself an artist. I'm not sure if I should submit though, especially if I'd be wasting time. :'3

Hey, In a new patch I was  thinking PREY! But it would really change Feral Heart and you can already download items so my prey Idea is kinda useless..

Check here (https://feral-heart.com/smf/index.php?board=29.0) if you would like to propose a suggestion to the game, friend! While unfortunately we cannot add any features such as live prey into the game until the source code is retrieved, you're welcome to direct any ideas or feedback to this board.~

i'm not sure if this is still relevant, but I wanted to know if creating something more minor, like emotes, for the community patch is also a possible thing? Completely new ones, not just an overhauled version of the original?

I think this game should also have more mane styles, mane markings, and maybe some age difference. Like in character creation, you can have the option of the character making them as a pup, teen/adolescent, adult, and old same thing for felines except instead of pup it'd be called cub. Oh and maybe some animations where you can pick up pups or cubs. Like for example in the game, if you want to pick up a pup/cub, you can go to the actions/emotes menu thing and in the actions there should be an animation of the character picking up the pup/cub of that person's character and have a notification saying: "This person wants to pick you up. Do you accept?" And then have a button saying, "Yes" or "No." Also, I think it would be nice to have some fighting animations too. And maybe for the objects/meshes, maybe you could have them look a little more 3Dish and not so flat if you get my drift. Other than that, I think that's all my recommendations. You don't have to take my advice, but I just think it would make the game much nicer. Also, move this to game suggestions 'cause idk how to. ^-^

I totally agree with you about the old music. It’s so nostalgic and I feel like they better fit the game. Sadly, the reason they were removed it because there were copyright issues, so they likely will not be back anytime soon. In all honesty, if you still really want to listen, check out this playlist and try playing it in the background of your game. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBF9CBA36578D8E25

My friend got permission from that guy Peter Crowley to use his music in her maps for public use. Idk but she’s got this way of making things pass easy. Idk how she does it.

Her/our maps will be public in 2020

I posted on here who knows how long ago and didn't even remember what I said until I found it a moment ago, but I'm glad I saw textures are also an option because I thought it was only maps for some reason. '>_>

Are markings allowed? Or, more so, would you want markings? I haven't made any in years, but I've always wanted to make a dog marking pack, but never could because of the marking limit, but now that we have the source code and that's not a problem I think, if I tried to get some examples  up, how would you guys feel about dog and cat markings perhaps?

I don't trust that they'd be good, and the only example I have is a very basic and old "boot marking" I made for a character I don't even use now, but I have a drawing tablet now and use GIMP. I just wanted to ask about this first before looking into anything though, if that's alright.

Are you by any chance looking for programmers/game developers that can write code? I don't have a high number of hours I can be available for but I'll gladly help if I can. If the technology stack that you're using suits me and my experience I can probably help with something.

Thank you.

Hello!

Thank you very much for your consideration, it's greatly appreciated. However, we do already have someone who's provided us with their coding abilities, so we are not currently looking for any further assistance in that field. Thank you again for your offer, we truly do appreciate it~
