There's a lot to learn with Booshies and we know it's a bit daunting to get used to such a new system with all new rules that those of you into breedables aren't used to. Booshies a game with many new twists and turns so we'd like to take a moment to clear up some extremely frequent questions and misunderstood items going on in group chat and otherwise. We will be adding more to this FAQ as we find the need to please check back for more!
Q: Is the speed of things now how Booshies will be when you release?
Can I expect this many eggs from pairs?
Will eggs hatch at the same times?
Will professions be this quick?
A: No! The beta times you are experiencing are sped up for beta purposes because there are only two weeks of beta before we officially release the game. Booshies are able to immediately breed after hatching during beta. When we officially release, this will not be so. Booshies will need to be 3 days (72 hours) old before they will be able to breed with one another. We also have much balancing to do with how long eggs take to hatch, how much food fills up a creature, how long things take to make in professions, etc. Please rest assured that nothing will be quite so over-whelmingly fast post-release!
Q: Will there be more recipes/blueprints/plants soon?
A: Yes! We have many more things for professions to practice in very soon and not just recipes or blueprints! One of the fundamental parts of Booshies game play will be your ability to explore Booshtopia and find resources to harvest for your use in your profession. For example, synthesizers will be able to make pearlessences. Pearlessences will require not just essence shards, but also a special gem depending on what element you want to the pearlessence to be. In Booshtopia, any player will be able to harvest ores to get gem shards to make these gems... but you'll have to find them first! Other things like ingredients for concoctioners and seeds for farmers will also be available to find.
Q: What are Booshbucks?
Will I be able to buy more or sell them to make Lindens?
Will I be able to buy/sell/trade Booshies in world for Lindens?
A: Booshbucks are the currency of Booshtopia. You'll be able to use them as an alternative to Lindens to buy things from Menchy and other NPCs, as well as trade on the HUD market. We will provide alternative L$ methods for trading/selling/buying Booshies and Booshtopian items in-world on release but for beta you are restricted to the HUD with Booshbucks which we've given everyone a balance of 20,000B. While we'd ultimately like to allow trading both ways in B and L$, legally and technically we have a lot of things to figure out before we can allow it. Immediately after release, you'll be able to buy B with L$ and it will be similar to game credits used on sites like Facebook and other MMOs and will be non-transferable except through the HUD system.
Q: I'm having a hard time getting started or finding ________. Where can I find a guide?
A: We've added a page to the website explaining how to get started located here: http://www.booshies.com/index.php/home/preorderbeta - On this page you'll also find a couple videos (and we'll be adding more frequently) that can help you get started once you are registered and acquired your HUD and home portal. If you ask a CSR in the group, we also have several FAQs and quick start notecards that we'll happily share with you upon request!
Q: I can't rez one of my pets through my home portal. It isn't showing up. Why?
A: Most likely you have assigned that pet to be your 'active' pet. Active pets will not show up through your home portal. If you wish to rez out your active pet, you will need to use your HUD's 'rez active pet' button. Please be aware that when you exit the region you are in with your pet, be it via teleport or by logging out, your active pet should automatically derez itself several seconds after you've gone. You will need to re-rez it the next time you are somewhere you wish to have it with you.
Q: Why can't I use a V1 viewer to see the HUD? Why can't I use internet explorer? What CAN I use?
Q: Where can I report bugs/feedback?
A: Please e-mail us your feedback and bug reports to [email protected]. Please be as thorough as possible so we can reproduce the problem if needed. Thank you!
