NEW! Blood and Lumen Altars

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

The Blood and Lumen Altars allow you to make sacrifices of Blood, Lumens, or Humanity to a selected King, Queen, or Alpha. If they collect enough sacrifices, they can become “Deified” and gain a bonus status of Demigod or Demigoddess. The Lycan, Vampire, and Hybrid Demigod with the most sacrifices becomes a God or Goddess. Find out more in the Deities Guide Section, or the Altars gear page!

New Website Feature: Abyss Listing

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

Now you can view a list of Bloodlines players whose soul is in the Abyss in the stats section. This list is ordered by last login date, so people at the top of the list are players who have logged in recently. This is a new way to find souls that are floating around in the Abyss that only need a Hemlock to get them out.

The Abyss might be a scary place to go, but there are souls there for the taking if you decide to rescue them. (Just don’t tell them that the Hemlock potion tastes like black licorice and paint thinner!)

New Royalty Statuses

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

HYBRID_Royalty_UpdateToday we’re announcing new royalty statuses for the first time since Bloodlines was created. Now you can be higher than a King, a Queen, or an Alpha, and rise up to starred royalty status, or all the way to an Emperor or Empress. These new statuses give minions new powers as well, because a minion with as little as 10 souls can gain a star on their profile and be part of a 1-star minion court.

For details on how this new mechanic works, see the new Statuses section in the Bloodlines Guide. The basic idea is that anyone who has reached King/Queen/Alpha status (by gaining 400 total souls) can then add up to 5 stars to this status based on how souls are distributed between their minions.

So, having 10 minions with 10 souls each gets you 1 star, 15 minions with 15 souls each gets you 2 stars, and so on up to 30 minions with 30 souls to get 5 stars. Starred kings/queens/alphas can get together and liege to an Emperor or Empress. An Emperor or Empress must have 20 total King/Queen/Alpha stars among their minions. Note the difference between minion stars (that lift a starred King/Queen/Alpha), and King/Queen/Alpha stars that lift an Emperor/Empress.

In addition to creating new levels of achievement to strive for, this adjustment should remove some of the emphasis on “stacking”; in order for players to truly rise, they need active minions pledging allegiance to them. Don’t hesitate to contact us or ask in the comments if you have any questions about this update. More great stuff coming soon!

Happy hunting to all!

Issues with Soul Reaper and Fangs Fixed

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Yesterday we fixed a couple of minor issues in the Soul Reaper and the Thirst Fangs. We’re not issuing a new version for these fixes that will auto-deliver, but if you’re affected by these issues, please get a redelivery from an update terminal to get the fixed version.

It was reported to us that the new mesh soul reaper had a very high land impact when rezzed on the ground. This was because we forgot to turn off the physics shapes of the linked non-mesh prims in the linkset. This has been corrected in the Soul Reaper 2.0 that is currently in our delivery servers.

The issue with the Thirst fangs will only affect you if you play War. In the last Thirst update, a bug was introduced in the fangs weapon script that allows the thirst fangs to be used as a combat weapon in War. This has been corrected. Please let us know if you have any questions!

The Soul Reaper 2.0

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Introducing the Soul Reaper version 2.0! This update includes one of the most common updates we get asked about: the ability to reap more than one soul at a time. For the initial release, you can reap souls in batches of up to 100 at a time, and 200 souls per day through the multi-reaps. These limits are set on the server side, and are subject to change. They might go up, they might go down in the future. We’ve also updated the design with a new mesh build with changeable textures, and more textures coming soon. Also, even though the soul reaper comes with modify permissions, we’ve included a resizing feature to make it easier to size your soul reaper to your avatar.

We’ve also made the soul reaper easier to customize. If you’re a creator who makes third-party Soul Reapers for Bloodlines players to move their scripts into, make sure you see the customization section in the new Soul Reaper instructions.

If you’re a current Soul Reaper owner, you should get an auto-update just by wearing your current Soul Reaper version. However, old versions back to version 1.4 will still work.

Series 5 Cider Barrels

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Don’t worry, all you humans out there. We didn’t forget about you. Introducing Series 5 mesh Cider Barrels for all your cider storage and trading needs. These Cider Barrels come with all of the new features we recently released in the Series 5 Blood Containers and Lumen Prisms, including customizable textures, sales options, enhanced hover text, and custom tags. We’ll also be adding these Barrels to the Human Affiliate vendors so you can sell them directly from Liquid Designs vendors in your own shop. Humans: please enjoy your cider responsibly, and vampires and lycans, please enjoy your humans responsibly. Thank you!

Series 5 Prisms

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Announcing the release of Series 5 prisms, in Bone and Iron styles. They each come with all of the new features that we recently released on the series 5 tanks, including changeable textures, custom tags, sales configuration, and enhanced hover text. In addition, they have a land impact of only 3. They can also be auto-updated, so you will never have to buy a future update again. The Bone style prisms come with 9 different bone textures, including Minotaur, Cyclops, Chimera, Elk, Direwolf, Giant, Boar, and Mammoth. The Iron prisms come in 9 different metal colors. More texture sets are coming soon!

Series 5 prisms are truly the next generation of Lumen storage, and are part of the foundation of your Bloodlines Lycan gear. These prisms are also linked up with the new Liquid Designs licensing system, so they can be sold through regular vendors, and affiliate vendors. If you own a set of Rage affiliate vendors, just get a redelivery of the vendors from any update terminal located at a Bloodlines store, or the update terminal that came with your original vendors, and the new crate will include the Prism affiliate vendors, so you can start selling prisms today, and earning commission on them. We are really excited about this update, and we hope you are too!

Blood Tanks and Casks Affiliate Vendors

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

affiliate_tanks_casksWe have just released new Blood Tank and Cask Affiliate vendors. They are packaged in the same crate with the existing Thirst affiliate vendors. Just to be clear: we have not added the Tanks and Cask products to the existing affiliate vendor product sets, we have added new, separate affiliate vendors to the same crate as the existing affiliate vendors. So, in order to get the Tank and Cask affiliate vendors, you will need to get an update of the affiliate vendor crate from an update terminal. Pressing the update button on your existing vendors will not add them. Once more: this is a new set of affiliate vendors, it’s just been added to the same crate. Commission is 3%, the same as all other Bloodlines affiliate vendors, and they work the exact same way. So, if you already own the affiliate vendors, you just need to go to the update terminal and get an update. If you don’t, you can pick them up at any Bloodlines store for 1L$. We hope you enjoy these new vendors!
