The Pixpet tutorial has just been renewed with the goal to make it smaller and more to the point. You can reset the tutorial under Site Settings on top.

If you have suggestions for the tutorial or just want to point out typos, post them here!

Thank you for updating the tutorial!

Under the Pixpets tab, there's some typos:

Once you did that = Once you do that

in your home and hatched = in your home and have hatched (sounds better)

color is chosen by random when a Pixpet hatches = it also rerolls when a Pixpet evolves, might be good to mention that here

In SLVL section there's no mention of how much slvl can be raised through interactions or decorations

Food: "or are found on other userpages." = What does this mean? Is this a reference to the lottery?

Again, thanks for streamlining this! It's so much friendlier now!

I'll start by saving I super support the tutorial being less text heavy and having less pages to it. I think it makes it look much less intimidating than before! Here are some of my suggestions for what should be added/changed/moved -


  • On the "Pixpets" tab I think it should be more heavily emphasized that a pets colour determines what colour of potion they can use on a hoard. I see a lot of users make this mistake. It's mentioned at the bottom but I think that can be easily missed. I suggest moving it to the third paragraph on the page and adding some bold text to make it catch the eye more.

  • I think it should also be mentioned that just because your Purple Troffinch brings you an egg doesn't mean that the pet that hatches will also be Purple. I see this mix up a lot too.

  • The Item Averager/Seed Combiner should have a page or be mentioned. In particular the ability to combine seeds really needs to be mentioned due to the newbie starter pack including 4-5 lower grade seeds (which can be combined to make 1 100G seed, with maybe a few left over). I think a lot of new players don't notice this and will plant lower grade seeds, and in particular with plants have to destroy the plant when they realize their mistake. Same thing with averaging items. I think a lot of people will go into cooking and think that they need to find someone selling multiples of the same grade in order to use them in a recipe, rather than just averaging the items together.

  • Cooking page should reiterate that a potion's colour determines what kind of pet can use it.

  • "Potions with a grade of 0 are (mostly) useless." I know this was in the original tutorial but I think it's somewhat misleading? I can't think of what use 0 grade potions have except for decorative reasons, and unless there is something planned for 0 grade potions, I think it should be kept as non vague as possible. Especially as this may lead newbies into shilling out for Potions of Failure, thinking that they are used for something.

  • Somewhere in the tutorial I think it should explain what interacting with eggs vs pets (aka the lotto) does. In one section it does talk about getting food pellets from interacting with pets, but that's it. I see a lot of people complaining that they are running out of food/pumpkin seeds, and not knowing that interacting with eggs always gets you pumpkin seeds.

  • Mention that a pet's SLVL is only determined by the 20 most rare items in a room. I didn't realize this was the limit until it was mentioned on a bug topic. :P

  • Cultivation tab maybe mention that pumpkins can be harvested in three stages. Blooming, Sprouting, Grown.



EDIT - I just realized that either I'm blind or seed combiner was added after I mentioned it in discord, if I'm blind I'm dumb sorry! ;_;

A couple of small things I remember being mentioned in the suggestions thread were that the tutorial doesn't make it clear how to get more pumpkin seeds, or how to name your pet. The second thing may seem silly, but I've seen a lot of people have trouble naming a pet for the first time. The common assumption is that the "Name Pet" button will open a prompt that allows you to type in the pet's name. So they click it and end up naming their pet the species name, lol

Thank you for changing the tutorial, I noticed a few things in there that I only just recently learned despite having 20 pets, so it's good that they're included in now! (I didn't even know how SLVL worked exactly until now, so the tutorial helped me figure that out a bit better, haha.)

Hopefully it'll help newer players catch on faster, especially since it's made a lot neater and simpler to read. :)

@komodo Thank you! Here, I found a few other spelling errors on the Pixpet page:

obtained trough userpage lotteries = obtained through

different kind of potions = different kinds

chosen by random = chosen at random

Plants and pumpkins feature a grade from 0-100. The higher the grade, the better they be are for cooking. If you do not water them regularly, they will loose lose grade and eventually wither. Pumpkins come in all colors and their color is important for the cooking result.

(loose means to release something)

I think the below would also sound better:

Plant and pumpkin slots can be fertilized with Fertilizer before something a seed is planted. Fertilizer is found by pixpets on their hoards.

When I started I found it confusing trying to figure out how to name my met, I remember you had to go to a specific tab now. But me and someone else I saw on the forums asking for help both had this problem- if this was mentioned in the tutorial, perhaps more attention could be drawn to it?
