I am working on a new base and would like your thoughts on whether you prefer the style of the top or bottom option... the top is more realistic/detailed, the bottom is more in line with what a petsite base generally looks like. Note: the base is NOT fully finished and will still get some tweaks, but I want to know what style people prefer before I proceed. So please vote 1 or 2, either in the comments or over on the Discord, in the Lounge channel.

The time has come where we really need to downsize our server to save on costs. So, starting in two weeks, we will be deleting the *images* of khimeras of users who have not logged in in more than one year. Note, we are not deleting the khimeras, we are deleting the images only. Once a user becomes active again, the images will need to regenerate. This means that any normal decos will still regenerate once the user becomes active again, as well as the khimera image itself. HOWEVER, it does mean that if you have decos that you have saved but no longer have the item equipped, or old glitched images and the like, you will lose those decos/images. The solution to this is simply to log in at least once a year. We thank you in advance for your understanding!


More Info from Hazer:

Say I had this Khimera here and I was inactive for a year.
The Khimera's images (normal, clean, naked and thumbnails):
  • http://images.khimeros.com/khimeros/khimeras/1284/1284506.png
  • http://images.khimeros.com/khimeros/khimeras_clean/1284/1284506.png
  • http://images.khimeros.com/khimeros/khimeras_naked/1284/1284506.png
  • http://images.khimeros.com/khimeros/khimeras_thumbs/1284/1284506.png
Would be deleted from the server, however, the Khimera in question would still be there and still exist, but the images would no longer be here and would need to be regenerated.

The plan is to Clear inactive users (1 year of inactivity) Khimera images every 2 weeks (1st and 15th)

Then, once you/any user visits a Lair page containing those Khimeras or the main page of any Khimera that has its image removed, a script would run to re-generate that Khimera on the spot and reload it into the page.
There, the Khimera's Images will be available for another 14 days (until they get cleaned again, or if the inactive user logs back in they wont clear for another 1 year of inactivity).

Khimera's hefty server costs are mostly due to the sheer volume of Images being stored.
The images folder itself is over 968 GB - which is a lot.
400 GB~ Are purely from Khimeras that have been abandoned by their users for 1+ years.
So essentially, half of the cost of the servers have just been keeping up abandoned pet images.
This is why we'll be implementing this system, to save on a lot of costs.
We hope by generating on the spot we can alleviate any issues of "oh but I want to see X users khimera even though they're inactive", by temporarily generating that image for you when you need it.

Thank you for your understanding. <3
