Hello again! This week we show off Cybura's new character bases! For those of you who have been following us from the beginning you should know what our previous character bases looked like and for those of you who haven't then you may view them here. We have been through tons of base designs for the characters and we are happy to announce that we have finally found an artist that could deliver what we were looking for, not that the other artists did not deliver great art, it's just that the art did not fit what we had in mind for Cybura. But anyways, enough of my blabbering, I know present to you, Cybura's final character base:
Now if you don't know already, Cybura offers advanced customization meaning that you can choose things like if you want gloves to be on both hands or just one, do you want you character to have matching socks with their new pair of shoes, or if you want the hood of your hoodie on or off. You can also change any visible color that you can see (minus the line art, shading, and highlights) to any hex color code, so for example if you wanted your character to have one red(#ff0000) iris and one blue(#0000ff) iris then you can do so, and yes the pupil and scelra are customizable as well. The color customization is also available on clothing as well!
Characters start out with the outfit you see above and will allow you to customize it's colors. There will be a few starter hairstyles and facial features available to choose from when creating a character as well. And let's not forget about our advanced layering system that will allow you to mix an match different pieces of clothing! Shirts, pants, socks, and shoes, every outfit you see, each piece is separate and can act as a stand-alone item. I created one of my OC's using the customization system and here he is:
Ok, remember how last week I said we are looking to have the forums up and running by this week hopefully? Well, we are still not finished with all the programming for it, however we do have some design previews for you to take a look at, they are not final but let us know what you think!
And last but not least, Custom Outfits! In order to get some more funding for Cybura we are offering custom outfits that you can use with our character bases above. The price is $40 for a complete non-complex outfit and $50 for a complex outfit, please note that custom outfits cannot utilize our advance color system. We are implementing characters into our permanent forums which means you will be able to use your OC's before Alpha! The time to migrate your OC's to the world of Cybura is now! To place your order please post here whether you want to order a complex or non-complex outfit and you will be contacted for further detail and to complete your order.
Alrighty, that concludes this weeks update and we hope you are as excited as we are for Cybura!

I'd like to start this off by saying: "OMG! It's been a while since our last update!". Yes, we apologize, it has been far too long but the good news is that the lack of updates does not mean that nothing has been going on, we have some updates in store for you. With that said, let's talk about today's updates!
First we have Cybura's site layout. Nothing is final on this layout but we have managed to complete the PSD to HTML conversion of the layout's base. The only links that work at the moment are the ones that link to the homepage of the site and the one that links to our temporary forums. Again, this layout is not final so things will be added and possibly subtracted from it.
Next we have Cybura updates! Updates will be posted on this page as well as our forums and will hopefully happen more often now that we have the base layout HTML done. How does the layout make a difference you ask? Well, now that we have the layout, we can start implementing the features of Cybura and making them final(meaning now we can mark a feature as 100% complete and ready for Alpha), we believe presentation is important because who wants to see a preview of a feature that consists of a white background and black borders/lines? Sure it'll give the general idea but... yeah, we hope you get the point, if not then mark this as a fail for me(Lyro) because I suck at explaining things.
Lastly, we would like to let you know that we will be removing the temporary forums and replacing it with our permanent forums. This means that you will be able to register a Cybura account and start getting your post count up! It should also eliminate the bots we are having an issue with on the temp forums. We are working on the programming for our permanent forums and hope to have it launched by next week at the latest. Please note that your post count and anything obtained from any events we might have will be yours to keep, however, your username is not final. Everything will be reset but we will keep logs of everything and implement a code when we launch (starting with Alpha) that will allow you to transfer the things you've worked hard for to your new registered username. Also, please note that registering for our permanent forums does not include Alpha access, for guaranteed Alpha access please see our fundraiser here.
Alright, that concludes this update, don't forget to follow us by clicking the icons in the bottom right of this page and be sure to write your comment on our forums.
Buh-bye for now,
