Welcome to Animal Ares!
To get started you'll want to buy some animals! You can buy animals from the corral with corral tokens or from other players. The corral has a limited supply of animals available at a time, so keep checking back if you're looking for a specific breed.
You can earn free corral tokens by completing goals. Completing goals will also help get you started in playing the game earning many great rewards to help you care for your animals.×
Player Shop Updates!
Player shops have been completely revamped. You still add items the same way and any items that were in your shop will still be there. However you will need to 'open' a shop in order to see those items.
You now need to open a shop which costs animal acres dollars and you will need to provide a name and description as well in order to sell items. Once you open a shop you'll be able to view it seeing what other players see when they visit it and view your shop ledger. You'll be able to withdraw funds from your shop ledger page as well as see recent sales and purchases from other player shops.
As well purchasing items has been revamped and is now ajax driven. For those non tech savvy individuals this just means the item is purchased without the page needing to be refreshed, meaning faster and more efficient overall and should result in a smoother game play experience.
Let me know if you run into any issues or if you have any thoughts on the new system. Enjoy!

I have no images added at this point but I did add in a new area under atlas called town map. I eventually would like to add in an actual map image for the game, but for now it's a reference point to get to all the different areas under atlas.
Also I feel like it would be nice to have a name for our main town or world. If anyone has a suggestion they think would be great for the game, post it as a comment down below!Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-05-03 12:00:03
The animal whisperer career has finally been updated to have functionality! Now if you are an animal whisperer when you harvest your animals you'll have the chance of doubling the amount you receive! This is also updated to work for the harvest all.
As always let me know if you notice anything strange or run into any errors.
Hope everyone is enjoying spring. We are finally starting to consistently get some warmer weather and I have definitely been enjoying the longer days. Do not like it getting dark at 5. I also apologize for not being as active as usually. Things have been crazy and I've been pretty busy. But I am still working on things behind the scenes.Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-04-29 23:53:01
Butterflies have been seen in larger quantities throughout animal acres. Catch the different colors in glass jars for a fun toy to play with your pet. There are 6 different colors each with different affects.
The news page and html helper page are now visible by guests. As well the staff page has been updated to be on the new framework.
Hope everyone had a great Easter as well.Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-03-30 12:37:45
The animal breeder now has an increased chance of gaining an offspring up to the max value including mythics as well as a decreased chance of offspring being born sterile! This is a great job if you are trying to maximize the amount of offspring you have.
HTML Helper Page
The HTML Helper page has been converted to the framework and in the process has been updated removing outdated tags and adding in more modern ways of doing things.
Have a Great Weekend!Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-03-18 10:54:37
Happy Valentine's Day!
Hey everyone. I'm a day late, but to celebrate I have sent out 5 Be My Valentine items to all users active in the past week.
Until Saturday there is sale on all AAC purchases. You will receive an extra 25% credits on all purchases.
Enjoy your week!Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-02-15 11:05:24
You are now able to link directly from the animals page to the breed page and have that animal selected in the drop down.
Let me know if you have any issues.Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-02-13 11:06:37
The bank page has been completely revamped and is now on our framework. You will notice you can now deposit credits into your bank account. You don't receive interest on credits but for those who don't want to keep it all on hand you now have that option. :) You will also notice there is now record of all bank transactions deposits and withdraws. The first 10 will be seen on the bank page, but you can also view all transactions if you so choose.
This feature is not retroactive. So previous transactions that happened before the update, will not be displayed.
Enjoy!Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-02-07 14:09:53
Breeding and Lineages Updates
Hey everyone. I've added a new area where you can breed your own animals together. Previously you've had to make a request to yourself and accept it. A process that takes longer and isn't very obvious when you aren't already familiar with the process. But now you can go to the Breed Animals Page and breed your owned animals directly. Only animals currently eligible for breeding will be found here (correct age, not in recovering). There is a link to this page directly on the animal overview page as well as the individual animal page but only when the animal is breedable.
An animals inbreeding percentage is now displayed directly on the animals page, a long requested feature. :) I have also updated how inbreeding is calculated. It may still need tweaking. The new system gives you percentage based on your nearest relatives, so breeding a sibling will result in a higher percentage than a cousin. And it only considers the last 4 generations, so breeding 10th cousins twice removed doesn't matter (Kind of like real life unless you really track your family history). Currently inbreeding only affects whether you can start or carry on a bloodline, it must be less than 15%. In the future I may add negative for excessive inbreeding (50% plus) but for now you just have to deal with the stigma.
Note the inbreeding calculation will affect all animals past and present.
I have tested things on my end, but being just myself testing there is plenty of room for error. So let me know if you run into anything strange.Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-01-30 12:54:02
Made some minor updates to the show system. Better error handling overall and directs you to the training page when trying to view show without a discipline.
Online Users Update
The online users page listing has been updated to the new framework. This means the mobile menu will now work for this page as well.
Have a great Tuesday!Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-01-05 10:57:49
More Forum Updates!
I hope everyone has been enjoying their holidays. I know I have enjoyed spending time with family and relaxing myself. But I am getting back full steam into Animal Acres and finally have more forum updates for you. There are still some minor areas to update such as the forum search, but the main forums are now complete including the ability to edit!
Let us know if you run into any issues especially in regards to the updates. :)
Snowflake Event Finished
You will no longer be able to find snowflakes around the site for now. Hope you all enjoyed it and were able to find some good prizes.Anoua(#13) Posted On: 2016-01-02 19:31:41

On behalf of AA development we would just like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
I pray you have had a great holiday season thus far, and continue to on through the new year.
We appreciate your support and thank you for playing! God bless you.Aaron & Brittany(#2) Posted On: 2015-12-25 12:10:00
New Mobile Menu
I am pleased to announce that we have added a new mobile menu for AA!
This should add to ease of browsing the site from your mobile and/or tablet device. Please note that currently the feature is tied to the updated pages of AA (e.g. News, Forum) and will not show up on the pages that have not been updated so far. The mobile menu will appear on more of the site as we continue to revamp its pages. If you would like to view this feature from your computer just re-size your browser to be smaller/slimmer and the menu will activate, but make sure you are on one of the updated pages.
Now you may more easily access your profile, tend to your animals, and keep up with the AA community on the go, Enjoy!Aaron(#2) Posted On: 2015-12-17 13:32:58

- 100 Credits for 7500 points on each animal (instead of 3000).
