Feeding Eggs Is Now Easier

March 1, 2010 at 9:40 PM 1293 Comments

On all creature profiles, right next to the header text, we've added two links: "Next Creature" and "Previous Creature." This will allow you to easily "scroll through" a single user's creatures, making it easier for you to click and feed.

Much thanks to sunshine4562 for this suggestion!

Whew! Thank goodness... I was getting a bit overloaded! ;)

We apologize for the downtime -- Egg Cave is back and fully functional. An internal server misconfiguration caused this event.

Can you get your hands on these new eggs?!


Updated Cave Functionality

January 30, 2010 at 1:06 PM 691 Comments

The Cave functionality has been changed greatly.

You can now see the species of the creature before you decide to steal it from the Egg Cave. This will help cut down on the number of unwanted eggs in Ark (since the Egg Cave staff does not support the abandonment of creatures).

Instead of being able to adopt only 10 eggs per day, you may now only make 10 attempted steals per day (regardless of whether or not you adopt the creature).

We hope you enjoy this new and amazing feature! Fun and cool new species are up next!

Trade Center Opened

The Trade Center is now open in Ark City!


The day has finally arrived... THE TRADE CENTER IS NOW OPEN to the general public. We hope that this assists you in trading and swapping creatures SAFELY. :) We know it will!

Although the Trade Center has went through extensive testing, please submit any bugs you may find via the Contact form. We appreciate it! :)

The Frequently Asked Questions page has been updated with all of the information you need to know regarding the Trade Center. We're going to redo the page altogether soon, but here's what you need to know:

What is the Trade Center? Where is it located?

The Trade Center is where Ark citizens can trade their creatures. It is located in the northeast part of Ark City, behind the Town Hall and Adoption Center.

How many creatures can I trade at a time? How many can I offer?

You can trade as many creatures as you'd like. However, each trade lot can only contain 5 creatures. Also, each offer can only contain 5 creatures.

Not all of my creatures are being shown on the "Create New Trade" page!

That is because that creature is either in one of your other lots or you've offered it on another lot. Each creature can only be in one lot at a time.

What's up with this "exceeding 100 creatures" message? What does it mean?

Each user on Egg Cave can only have 100 creatures at any given time. This rule has been in place since of the beginning of the site (it's nothing new).

If you're offering on a lot and receive this message, you need to change how many eggs you're offering. If you have 100 creatures and lot you're offering on a lot that contains 5 eggs, you need to offer 5 eggs to stay within the bounds of the "100 Creatures Rule." If you had 100 eggs and offered only 4 creatures on a 5-creature lot, in the case that your offer would be accepted, the resulting amount of creatures you would own would be 101!

If you're trying to accept an offer and receive this message, you simply cannot accept offer because of the number of creatures you currently own. To solve this, you need to contact the "buyer" asking him or her to adjust their offer. Egg Cave does not support the abandonment of creatures to maintain this rule.

Do backgrounds transfer with creatures that are traded?


What happens if the creature I am trading currently has services booked at Tim's Food Shoppe?

The services will continue and be transferred to the new owner of your creature.

Can creatures die if they are being traded?

Yes. If they die, they will simply be removed from your trade lot or offer automatically. It is important to feed all of your creatures daily!

Do my creatures' views increase for being in the Trade Center?


How long can my trade be up?

Thirty days. If you do not accept any offers within 30 days, your trade will be automatically closed.

NOTE TO BETA TESTERS : All trade lots and offers have been cleared from the Trade Center as there was a major bug. ;D


Trade Center is now OPEN to beta testers!

January 17, 2010 at 3:46 PM 339 Comments

Hello everybody,

If you sent a message to @eggcave on Twitter, you're registered to be a beta tester for our brand new Trade Center (it will appear on the Ark City map soon, but for now, use this link)! If you're not a beta tester, don't worry -- the Trade Center will be released publicly soon.

Give it a go! Please report any bugs via the Contact form.

We're excited for the Trade Center! It will be released publicly in a couple of days!

UPDATE: We've fixed the evil blank page when accepting an offer. It works now! Sorry about that (it was a stupid mistake). :P
