Welcome to the website! + Update Previews
« on: May 30, 2014, 03:33:28 PM »
Thread updated June 13th, ignore the created date

Hello everyone,
This is the new Official 'Last Moon' forum. Myz has actually purchased this web address so it's not only a forum, we have a whole website set up! Such as a proper Downloads page, Staff page, etc.
And to answer one of the first questions you may have... we have a .org website because .com was taken lol

I hope you like the setup of the forum - after a lot of discussion and debate, the staff have decided to give this website a dark space theme instead of the brighter style that the old forum had(your feedback/ideas would be great!).
We have also cut down the amount of boards as well. It makes the forum look much more small and organised. If you think we have missed an important board, let us know and we'll look into adding it.


In case some of you are interested, these are the forum posting ranks

I will not tell you how many posts are required to earn those ranks ;D Just note that the last 3 (Eclipse, Nebula & Cosmos) may get you some ingame prizes once you have them. I will not say what the prizes are although I will say they will be very rare because these 3 ranks do require a lot of posts and you all know that single word posts, spam, etc is not tolerated so these ranks need to be earned over time!

Another thing I'm sure you're all interested in finding out more on is the new playable models that will be released in the new version of the game.
I can now 100% confirm that there will be completely new, made from scratch canine & feline playable models! These models have been made by Kino. RakshaWw will be making additional body parts such as ears, manes & tails, Forests will be doing the canine fur, Zaroque is doing the feline fur and willing staff members will be doing markings. So we're all working really hard on these models and hope you enjoy them :) They're all WIP at the moment(canine is 90% done, feline 50% done at the time of writing this) so your feedback, comments & opinions about them would be great.

These models are very low poly meaning they should not cause any lag!
Also, currently in the character creator you choose the head you want. In the update you will choose the ears you want! And the ears move in animations & emotes!
The UV map is very simple compared to the current ones so making presets will be much easier. Also, the UV map is all on one image so instead of making a head tex, tail tex etc you can just make a single texture that has all the body parts on it. This will make preset files a lot smaller.

Weather & Improved Graphics
If you have liked us on Facebook, you would have seen these images of LMs new sky, shading/lighting & terrain.



The game also has a new GUI layout, I won't post images at this time as it is not complete yet. The chat is now taking up less space & all the buttons under the Attack/HP bar have all been merged into a single Actions button(shot key G) which comes up with a menu to open your Emotes/Animations, Quests, Friends List, etc.

One last thing.. Staff Demotion, Promotion & Information.
As said before, staff will remain the same - no one is being fired just because we're changing a heap of things. If you notice a staff member is no longer on the list, they have been removed for other reasons. Rimisa has been moved up from Global Admin to Co-Owner. Zaroque has been moved up from Forum Admin/Global Mod to Admin. Joshtiger has been promoted to Developer. Shamboro has been promoted to Developer. Everyone else remains the same as they were.
We've also shortened down the staff ranks. Previously, we had ranks such as Global Admin, Game Admin, Forum Admin, etc, it has now been changed so there's only a single 'Admin' group. All Admins have powers both on forum & ingame.
We may also be hiring more Forum Mods & Map/World Developers & Mesh(3D Models) Developers soon so keep an eye on the Staff Applications board.

That's about it at this point!
The update is expected to be released around the end of July.
You can find more information on the update & ask questions on the F.A.Q.

OMG HELLS TO THE YES NEW FUR TEXTURES. That was the one thing I had always loved in FeralHeart and sorely missed when I moved to Last Moon. I'm looking forward to this update. Keep up the good work, folks! :D

Does the new update require downloading the game again? Because if it does my laptop will get even more slower.
I love feralheart, last moon, minecraft and many more!
