Happy Spring!
Happy spring everyone! Your ibbits can now find some festive tulips on their travels around Bita City. Tulips aren't that tasty, so your ibbits may not want to eat them, but you can sell them to Fresh Food Market to make some extra bits if you want. However, you may want to hang onto them (especially the various colors) because they will be useful for an activity that I have planned. ;D I plan on adding more spring items and other things as April Fool's Day approaches, so definitely check back soon! I definitely have a few fun things planned!

ibTime Change and a couple of upcoming events
Hi all! I just wanted to alert everyone that ibbits Time (aka ibTime) has been changed to be the same as Central Time (GMT -6). This should make it a bit easier for me to plan events and such. Speaking of events, if you have checked out our nifty calendar recently you may have noticed that there are two new upcoming events! The Vernal Equinox is on Monday March 20th and Fool's Day is on Saturday April 1st. I have a few cool things planned, so please stop by on those days!

I apologize that I haven't been able to get much done recently. I have several ibbits projects almost complete but between my current job and school I haven't had much free time to finish them. I am working on my time management (aren't we all? ;P) so hopefully I will be able to update a bit more often! Anyway, thanks as always for your patience everyone! Make sure to stop by for some of our upcoming holidays!

Mini Update - Animated .GIF's!
Look! I'm a .gif!
This is just a quick update: item images can now be animated! I'm not going to go into the details, but basically I didn't have the images in a format that would allow most internet browsers to show animation. I edited the code a bit so now I can choose various image file formats and I'm not just forced to use only .png's or only .gif's. So far, only the Sunbeans and the Bubblebee are animated, but this opens up a world of possibilities! As far as other updates go, I'm working on some cool new things! I should be able to roll out a couple of new features soon, so stick around!

Spirit Hunt 2016 has ended!
Thank you to all who participated! You guys really kept me guessing as to the outcome! I will get the prizes completed and the leaderboard set up for you all ASAP. Unfortunately, my scheduling with school conflicted with me getting the prizes done right away, but they are almost ready so check back soon to claim them. (I promise it won't be months or anything, unlike last year's Hunt) It should be pretty awesome this year, I think you guys will approve. :D Once again, thank you all!

Now I must scurry off to finish the prizes...
