Framed Cartographer's MapVintage CameraHorse Spirit Harpsichord

Lahja really has her paws full as items in the The Side Room continue to accumulate! In The Forgotten Room section, you can now find the Framed Cartographer's Map, Vintage Camera, and the Horse Spirit Harpsichord.

Industrial Wulfer PlushVintagePhonograph Avatar

Additionally, the relaxing sound of music mixed with odd mechanical barking can be heard almost constantly while she works. If you're lucky, you may be able to grab the Industrial Wulfer Plush or the Vintage Phonograph Avatar, both found only in the Forgotten Room as well!

The Vintage Phonograph Avatar can be permanently unlocked by using this Item, but will appear in the Custom Avatar section of your collection, and will not increase the total number of Secret Avatars needed or acquired.

Bob at the Food Mall has been toying with ingredients, and cooked up a new-and-improved set of recipes for the current soups. The new look is as yummy as the taste.

Chicken Noodle SoupCream of Mushroom SoupEgg Drop SoupPotato Soup

The Chicken Noodle Soup, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Egg Drop Soup, and Potato Soup have all been revamped.

Frozen Chicken Noodle SoupFrozen Cream of Mushroom SoupFrozen Egg Drop SoupFrozen Potato Soup

The frozen counterparts are now considered Ice Cubes, collectible and all. Bob doesn't have the room to keep a full freezing unit at the Food Mall, so from now on, you can obtain the frozen soups through the Ice Box.

You've heard the rumours. You've seen updates. You may have lost faith. But we're here to tell you the layout updates are happening in the very near future!

Happy Code Monkey

Starting on May 4, we will be opening an Open Alpha Testing Server for all interested Users to participate in finding bugs and working out kinks before the live launch. This will be on an entirely separate server, so your actions over there will not affect your account in any way, but rather serve as a dummy account for you to play around with.

The layout updates aim to provide a clean, modernised user interface and improved game experience, as well as large amounts of behind-the-scenes programming to make your IcePets experience the best it can be. We've prepared a preview of some of what's to come!


Everyone is welcome to join in the alpha testing, and for your help you'll receive a Participation Trophy. Bugs discovered will be recorded publicly, and there will be special rewards for anyone who brings new bugs to our attention. Please be aware that because this is an alpha test, there may be lag and glitches, which is why we need your help to smooth things out before transferring it all to the live site!

Tech Ice CubeBook of Technology

We appreciate everyone bearing with us this far. We know it's been a long time coming, and we have heard your feedback in the meantime. After the updates go live, we will be able to refocus Staff resources on new features and games for the future, as well as continued improvements to existing features and artwork. Everyone on Staff is excited for what's coming, and we hope you will be, too!

Dreamworld Makoat PlushieDreamworld Snow Jar Ice Cube

The changing of the seasons makes many Terrafrostians a bit dreamy, and with new dreams come new Items. Add the Dreamworld Makoat Plushie (funded by @Nexinhah) and the Dreamworld Snow Jar Ice Cube to your Collections today! The Dreamworld Makoat Plushie is stocking in Plushie Mania, and the Dreamworld Snow Jar Ice Cube is obtainable through the Ice Box.

Book of Gems

Rereading old Books can be fun, especially when they have updated content! The Book of Gems has been redone, and you can find it in the Library or pick up a brand new copy from Ralph at the Book Store!

Finally, don't forget to check out the Competition Page for information on submitting to the fan art gallery if you haven't yet, and keep that artistic talent flowing! Remember, you have until the end of March 25th to submit your creation to the gallery.

Colourable Plushie

As the weather warms in the northern hemisphere and cools in the southern, what better way to celebrate the beauties of Terrafrost than through a gallery of fan art? Whether you draw, craft, create graphics, or even know your way around some fancy calligraphy, it's the perfect opportunity for you to display your talents.

Anyone can enter, following the rules below. All entries that meet the requirements will be displayed in a gallery. While we will be using the Contests Page, there are no winners, only lots of beautiful IcePets art! You have until the end of March 25th to submit your creation to Quil to be added to the gallery.

Seasons Ice Cube

The theme is the Turning of the Seasons!

Rules:
1. One entry per User. If your entry is rejected for any reason, you can submit another before the contest ends.
2. Work must be entirely your own. Please do not trace original artwork or use Google images, but image manipulation of IcePets art to create graphics is acceptable.
3. Art must be kept PG-13. For example, you may show two Pets holding hands or kissing, but not overt innuendo; you may show blood, weapons, or mild violence, but not gore or dismembered limbs, etc. All entries submitted must be considered appropriate under the Terms and Conditions of IcePets.
4. Entries must be related to IcePets in some way, appropriate for the theme, and show some effort put into their creation.
5. All types of artwork can be submitted, but your entry must be an image. If you create artwork or crafts in real life, you must submit as a photograph.
6. Staff reserve the right to dismiss a submission if it is hard to view or appears no work was involved.
7. You may share your entry to this contest! Feel free to put your username in your submission as well, although using a © or similar copyright symbol is not allowed.
8. Your image must be uploaded and sent to Quil by March 25, 23:59:59 (IcePets time). It does not matter where or how you upload it. Your submission will count as long as it is sent to Quil within the time frame.

Gabrielle

Gabrielle was checking over her notes for past Snow Jar creations, and made a discovery: Firebreathing Pets didn't just breathe fire after all! She put out the word and asked for feedback, and the IcePets Community came back with a result.

Across Terrafrost, anything previously named Firebreathing will now be Fire, from Potions to Plushies to Pets.

Confetti-1.gif

The votes have been tallied, and it's time to announce the winners of Member of the Month (MOTM for short)! For this month's Yet to Win MOTM, everyone congratulate...

@Furresoto

Thank you for making IcePets a better place! Here are our favourite things about Furresoto:

- I'd like to nominate Furresoto for MOTM because they have been a very friendly and positive presence lately and I think they deserve recognition for that!
- They seem very nice and their art is awesome!

Confetti-2.gif

Next up, the winner of the Free for All MOTM, please congratulate...

@Mongolou

Thank you for your continuing contributions to our community! Here are our favourite things about Mongolou:

- Mostly because they just sent me a ton of stuff for my collection and they didn't have to. That was some kind of generosity.
- Mongolou has been an active staple of the community for a long time; I'm happy to nominate them for MOTM because they are an incredibly kind member.

Confetti-1.gif

Both of these fantastic members will receive 100,000 IcePoints and either the exclusive Member of the Month Avatar, or, if they already have it, the Honoured Member Trophy.
