Unicorn Adventure 2015

Part 1:

Hey, it’s Marina here! I would’ve posted this sooner (well, a few hours sooner), but I had a bunch of other stuff I needed to do first, and I still have stuff to do after this. Anyway, since Unicorn Adventure is no longer NOT taking place, I’m sure you all want to know more about this event!

it's Wednesday and I'm reposting stuff again

Yes, that’s my picture from last week, but the big difference between then and now is that you can actually do stuff! Is this stuff exciting? (Spoiler alert: NOT really, unless you’re 6.)

or at least that's what I thought when I wrote that

The Hatching Unicorn thing looks a little like this.

tildes are for weebs and people who make typos when they mean to hit the exclamation key

(Ending sentences with tildes? So I’m guessing whoever came up with this event was six after all… Or maybe just a Tumblr user, because that looks very Tumblr-y to me.)

You can just sit around on Fantage and wait for your medal to level up, or if you have gems, you can use those to speed up the process a little. I’d opt for the latter method, especially if you’re not a PM and have some starred gems lying around. Apparently you can get clothes as a gift if you “level up”, but all I’ve gotten are stickers so far. It’s kind of a shame, since from what I’ve seen, the clothes from this part of the event might be the best event items.

Also, if you didn’t notice, I put “level up” in scare quotes. That’s because, like the rest of this event was doing before today, the medal for Hatching Unicorns is NOT showing up! 😀 And no, this is NOT just happening to me, it didn’t work on the other account I tried to level up on, either.

If you don’t believe me (though I don’t know why you wouldn’t), here’s proof:

someone stole my medal

That’s my medal level.

IT WAS MELODY

These are my most recent medals. Note how the unicorn one is NOT there.

THAT'S HOW SHE HAS TWO UNICORN MEDALS

…But somehow it shows up on the medal list. Seriously, Fantage? At first I thought the medal was PM-exclusive, but that clearly is NOT the case, so what’s going on here?

Limited Items

Let’s move on to the part of the event most people actually care about: the user-inspired items! Which…are really, really sad.

So do you remember how Fantage has had that one pixel artist for at least six months now? Do you remember how said pixel artist is NOT very good at shading hair, clothes, or anything, really? I think we all get where I’m going with this, so all I’m going to say is…mimimini17 and secretlyapony, I’m very sorry this happened to your items. The shading was so bad (especially compared to the items from the last contest), I thought these were Fantage originals. At least they got in…

Girls:

I actually thought these were ugly af but was too nice to say something about it 8)

Yikes, the pixel artist really did a number on that second outfit. If it’d been shaded a bit better, I probably would’ve bought it. (Marina’s Note from THE FUTURE: Actually, no, I wouldn’t have.) The first outfit looks cute in the picture, but I’ve tried it on and the hair just doesn’t work with my eyes. :/

Prices:

Set 1:

Hair – 1800 Gold

Dress – 4000 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Tail – 900 Gold

Face gems? – 400 Gold

Earrings – 500 Gold

Set 2:

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Dress – 4000 Gold, 8000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 700 Gold, 1400 Stars

Earrings – 500 Gold, 1000 Stars

(For what they did to these poor items, at least they’re not charging too much for anything…except the dresses. :/)

Boys:

OKAY I HATE THE SECOND OUTFIT

The top one reminds me of Julian the unicorn from ACNL (credit to justduet for that pic, by the way), but I don’t think the outfit translated very well to Fantage. As for the bottom outfit, I’m not even going to say anything about that.

Prices:

Set 1:

Hair – 1800 Gold

Shirt – 1500 Gold

Pants – 1500 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Tail – 900 Gold

Earring (and beauty mark) – 500 Gold

Set 2:

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Shirt – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Pants – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 700 Gold, 1400 Stars

(Hey, how come the guys get their shirts and pants for 1000 Gold fewer than we have to pay for those dresses? Honestly, I’d buy the first dress if it were less expensive, so this is really annoying for me. Come on, Fantage, why’re you giving guys a discount? :P)


That’s really all this event has to offer for now. I’m not going to lie, I was disappointed. I submitted designs to Fantage, and while I certainly didn’t expect to win, I at least thought one blogger would win. I don’t know if they didn’t pick Kittsay‘s designs because of the controversy with her last time or because they didn’t fit with what Fantage wanted, but I really did think she’d win again. Even if she didn’t, I thought there’d be more casual outfits available. Seeing the only two outfits be formal dresses, especially after the last user-inspired items contest had such cute clothes (and twice as many outfits), was just kind of a letdown for me.

On the bright side, we’re getting the next part of this event on October 1st. Hopefully there’ll be other, more casual user-inspired items then. Hopefully…

But what do you think? Did you get any of the user-inspired items? (I bought the face gems, because Anna has influenced me and now I’m investing.) Have you had the chance to get the outfit Fantage actually made, or do you still want that glittery top as much as I do? Do you think there’ll be more user-inspired items next week/month, or do you think this is it? Well, whatever your opinion is*, feel free to voice it in the comments below!

*Even though we moved, Anna and I still don’t condone posting rude or offensive comments.

Part 2:

Hey, it’s Marina posting from the land of internet problems. Seriously, my internet has been bad all day today. Anyway, the second half of Unicorn Adventure is finally here (for some reason it was NOT here this morning), and since it’s pretty big, I thought it deserved its own post!

that's a lot of outfits

You can now color in a drawing, which for some reason isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Comet at all. Fantage also seems to think this is the part of the event that’ll be the most exciting to its users as opposed to it being some random thing nobody will even really remember a week from now.

Moving on to the update that people actually care about…

Limited Items

This is what the new limited cart looks like:

hi Sonic

And just by looking at these items (including the items that are on me), you can tell they’ll be a lot better than the first set. 😛 While some of the shading is still questionable, I honestly like these designs a lot more. I’m getting ahead of myself, though, so…

(Okay, this is going to be a long list, so please bear with me here.)

Girls:

ever notice how only Kittsay and the high-leveled people win these thingsunicorns come from SPAAAAAAAAAAACE

I really, really, really like the two tops, along with the shoes from the third set! …Which you can probably tell from the picture above where I’m wearing these items. I’d buy that board, too, but I’m almost all out of Gold (I only have like 800 left now after buying all this stuff). And for those of you who like investing (*looks at Anna*), I’d buy the shirts, the board, and maybe gianna4125’s shoes.

Also, notice how Gianna’s stuff says it’s for the Unicorn Princess and everything else in this update is casual? It makes her items seem a little more special, don’t you think? 😉

Prices:

I’m listing who made the items along with the set they’re from, because there are eight different outfits here and things could get confusing pretty quickly.

Set 1 (gianna4125’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold

Dress – 4000 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Board – 4000 Gold

Set 2 (jenny_light’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold

Outfit – 4000 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Set 3 (yumi_marz’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Top – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Skirt – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 800 Gold, 1500 Stars

Set 4 (Bluekirby123’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Top – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Skirt – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 800 Gold, 1500 Stars

Sunglasses – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

(Has anyone noticed that Fantage doesn’t really know how to double numbers? This is like the third time in a row that they’ve made something 3500 Stars instead of 3600 when the Gold version costs 1800. It could just be them trying to give members a discount or something, but isn’t that already the point of Gold?)

Boys:

emo dude and non-emo dude still SANIC

For the most part, I agree with Luke that these items are really nice, especially Gianna’s outfit. Also, Bluekirby123 is obviously a big Sonic fan. (While we’re talking about obvious inspiration, secretlyapony from the last update must really like Princess Celestia from MLP… Though MLP has a lot more to do with unicorns than Sonic of all things.)

Prices:

Set 1 (gianna4125’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold

Outfit – 4000 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Board – 4000 Gold

Set 2 (jenny_light’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold

Outfit – 4000 Gold

Shoes – 600 Gold

Set 3 (yumi_marz’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Coat – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

“Shorts” – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 800 Gold, 1500 Stars

Set 4 (Bluekirby123’s items):

Hair – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

Top – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

“Shorts” – 1500 Gold, 3000 Stars

Shoes – 600 Gold, 1200 Stars

Wings – 800 Gold, 1500 Stars

Sunglasses – 1800 Gold, 3500 Stars

(No, I have no idea why Fantage is calling pants shorts. If you click them and look at their descriptions, it says they’re shorts. I think Fantage may be confused about what makes a short vs. a pant.)

Whew, that’s a lot of items, isn’t it? We’re not even done with the event yet, either!

Hatching Unicorns

You know how Fantage said you can hatch Rosie now? Well, I have some sad news for you all.

They lied.

The pet you can actually hatch is called… Roise. Or Roise Pet. I’m just going with Roise.

Here’s proof:

just as Fantage is too lazy to use spellcheck, I'm too lazy to take two pics

If you’re not a member, you can buy one of the three Magic Codes to hatch Roise. Thankfully, I had the eCoins to do this instead of having to watch about a billion ads like I did when I was trying to get Cotton.

If you are a member, then my friend Katie has a great tip for you: BUY MORE THAN ONE HOLIDAY EGG! If you buy five of them and know the codes for hatching them (which, conveniently enough, we have a page for), then you can get all of the holiday pets, along with their prizes. Yes, this includes Springy shoes (do people even like those anymore? All I know is they were popular in 2013). Holiday eggs only cost 200 Stars apiece, so there’s really no reason not to buy them!


 

So that’s everything you can do during this event. Personally, I didn’t really care for the event before now, but after these updates, I like it a lot more! I was hoping for casual clothes, and I got them, so I’m happy (even though nobody I know won). Getting another holiday pet is pretty cool, too. Yeah, some of the shading and the hair could have been done better in general, but it’s still miles better than what Fantage did to the first two outfits. 😛

What do you think of this event, though? Did you buy any of the limited items? (To any guys in the audience, did you buy that Sonic hair?) Did you hatch Rosie– I mean, Roise yet? Are you going to participate in the Painting Unicorns thing? You don’t know/remember what that is? Well, me neither. If you have an answer to any of these questions, or even if you don’t, then feel free to leave a comment below!

– Marina

P.S. I know Anna and a few other people will want to know what I submitted for the contest. Here goes. Remember that I drew this on Sketchpad using a mouse.

unicorns still hate art thieves

Also, if you steal these designs, a unicorn will come into your house when you’re sleeping and…well, what do you think those horns are for? Everyone knows a unicorn’s worst enemy is an art thief…
