Smeet Developer Update with Tuonela!

Some news on upcoming features on Smeet!Some exciting changes are coming to Smeet!Some exciting changes are coming to Smeet!

Dear Smeeters,

it's been a couple of months since our last developer update. We wanted to give you another little peek behind the curtains and share with you what we're currently working on. So here it is!:

1. Badge Levels: Since many of our users like collecting Badges, we wanted to make it a more enjoyable experience overall. The primary goal here is to give our users the ability to see their progress more easily and make the act of collecting more rewarding. With a single peek into your own profile or another user's you will be able to see how big the Badge collection is, without having to count all the Badges!

So how does it work? The Badges you've collected will contribute to an overall Badge score. Different types of Badges will give different amount of Badge Points, with Golden Badges being worth the most points. Every Badge will give you some Badge Points, with the exception of Volunteer Badges and Social Badges, such as 'Married'. For reasons of fairness these Badges will not contribute to your Badge Score.

All Badges will be moved to a new Badge Tab where they will be easier to view. How many of each Badge Type you possess will be displayed here as well (eg. 3 Golden, 6 silver, 10 blue, etc.). This tab will also display your Badge Level and a unique Badge Icon corresponsing to your Level. The Badge Level will also be visible in the first tab of your profile, just under your Fame Point and Prestige Level indicators.

Currently there are no fixed plans to have level rewards associated with Badge Levels, as it has been designed primarily to make measuring your current progress easier, rather than as an introduction of a completely new progression system. However, this does not mean that this is going to stay this way indefinitely. Depending on interest the new Badge Levels, we are open to investing more effort into this feature. Send us your feedback!


2. New Fame Point and Prestige levels! We know you've been waiting for so long, especially for the new Prestige Levels. We've been saying they are coming, and perhaps we were being a bit optimistic...however, this time they really are! It is very likely that 10 new Fame Point and 20 Prestige Levels will be introduced in March. On the off-chance that there is an issue, the longest delay we estimate still puts the release date sometime in the first half of April. We won't stop working on new levels after that, however! We know it has been a long time since our last release and these levels will still not be enough for some of our top users. We will continue working on new levels - another 15 Fame Point Levels and 30 Prestige Levels will come out around June this year, raising the Fame Point level cap to a total of 375, and the Prestige Level cap to 210!


3. Group Challenges! Last but not least, of course we are constantly working on improving Groups and the Challenges. This is the feature that is currently the most popular in Smeet and we are looking to improve it whenever we can. What we are aiming for at the moment is a) more and more prestigious items for the Silver, Gold and Platinum Leagues (did you like the new profile pose?), and b) a change that will make the overall competition even more fun. We will disclose more info on this when we get closer to the release date, but we think your jaw might drop when you hear about it! (Yes, it is very big, yes, it is a positive change, yes, it was requested by many users, and no, it will not affect your current achievements and progress with your Group in any way!).

 

Excited yet? Stick around, it won't be long before we announce everything that is planned.

Yours sincerely, - Tuonela

Promote Healthy Living on Smeet's Organic Farm!

It's a pesticide and fertiliser-free zone up in here!Health-freaks, hipsters and animal-lovers. You can flog these veggies to all of them!Health-freaks, hipsters and animal-lovers. You can flog these veggies to all of them!

Now that spring is coming, gardening has crept its way back into everyone's minds! Early preparation is crucial in order to get everything ready for summer, so you need to start seeding things in the next couple of months. We attach great importance to environment and sustainability here at Smeet, so we've decided to introduce an Organic Farm. It's the future, we've tasted it!

If you have the opportunity you should stop by one of the local farms in your surrounding area and pick up eggs, milk and all kinds of vegetables and seasonal fruits directly from the farm. You can't beat it!

Anyway, back to your latest project. Your Organic Farm, aside from looking pretty damn nice, has a couple of strict policies - the vegetables you grow and harvest must be untreated with pesticides or fertilisers and your animals must be treated with respect! Battery farming can get outta here! These happy animals will give you either a particular product or some fresh, stinkin' but GLORIOUS manure. As they are made to feel so comfortable on your farm they will also embark on a cheeky litta bitta breeding, giving you sweet little calves, chicks and lambs! You need to take care of the offspring in the same way you do the adults!

In order to ensure there is always enough manure you can also collect it from the ground, as the animals will leave it there every once in a while! Manure is very important because you need it to fertilize your vegetables. Finally, collect all the delicious vegetables you've grown and the products your animals have produced and load up the truck to bring them to the local market. With every truckload of produce you will earn some lovely Fame Points!

So hop to it, Smeeters! Purchase the Organic Farm for the chance to earn UNLIMITED Fame Points!

Technical Problem with YouTube Screens in Smeet

Important information for Smeeters using Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.We hope to have the screens back up and running for everyone as soon as possible!We hope to have the screens back up and running for everyone as soon as possible!

Dear Smeeters, due to more technical changes from YouTube, any users using Firefox or Google Chrome are unfortunately not currently able to watch YouTube videos in Smeet.

We are working on a fix right now but it may take a few days. The screens should still work perfectly with Internet Explorer, Opera and Comet Bird, however.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your understanding!

Challenge Group Interview with Joscri!

Let's meet the 'New Stars' group!Have you come up against this tough bunch before?Have you come up against this tough bunch before?

Smeeters! I have interviewed a few groups, and today we’ll meet a very special group for me...it's my very own! I asked some questions to our leader and creator, Celia, so you can all get to know us better!

How is the group organized?

It’s a family group, each member is very important. I’m not the one that commands all the time - the group is all of us, and because we love each other, we make decisions as a group.

How do you enjoy each challenge?

Each challenge is a moment of unity for us - we help each other, we give advice…it’s great if we win, but if we lose nothing happens - for us the friendships are the most important thing. 

What should a user have to join the group?

Be kind and sympathetic, and want to have fun…although we give priority to the family.

Thanks for answering my questions. Do you want me to interview your group? Contact me (ID: 8397269) and i'll be happy to do a profile! Just like the New Stars group, I hope you enjoy every challenge with your close friends - the most important aspect of Smeet is our friends, who are like our family, whether we win or not. Support your group, always!

Something's Up at the Ice Fishing Cabin!

Climate Change has taken hold in Smeet!Bad news for our planet...great news for the fishermen!Bad news for our planet...great news for the fishermen!

That's right, people. Don't go thinking climate change only exists in the real world...it's taking place in Smeet too!

Or it's the pesky Chinese, up to their old tricks, hoaxing the rest of us.

Probably not, though. Because that would be mental.

Anyway, after a week of hearing strange cracking noises in Smeet, we have finally discovered what it was! Maybe you've seen it already...there's a new ice hole at the Ice Fishing Cabin!

Now that it´s a bit warmer outside and spring is casting it´s net a little wider, a new fish is passing under our cabin! The Golden-Scaled Glider loves the slightly warmer water in the area and has moved there to find nutritious food and a new partner!

There's also this weird dude who has turned up. His name is Montgomery Pensworth IV, and he's addicted to all things gold. Naturally then, his favourite fish is the Golden-Scaled Glider, and he will do anything to get his grubby mitts on as many of them as possible.

So if you want to catch a load of them in order to sell them to Montogomery, you have to be quick! They will only stay around the cabin for about 2 weeks (until the 24th March, to be precise). After that, they´ll move on to pastures new.

So get a move on! Grab some warmer clothes, pick up your fishing rod, get some Golden Bait and get going! Please do be careful though, and remember the safety tips we gave you last time! Now that it´s a bit warmer, the ice can break even more easily! So mind your step and happy fishing!!
