Here are the highlights from the year!

  • Introduced an additional feature to the characters activity page: character deaths.



2014?

With 2013 almost behind us, we are planning for the upcoming year 2014. We are still waiting for the fansite item to be implemented into the game.

We are also planning to have more competitions which will focus on other skills than graphical design, for example writing and coming up with stories.

We also have a couple of bigger projects in store, but we'll let you know when we get there ;)

8th Dec, 2013 - Introducing feature: character deaths

nils    (Dec 08 2013)      0          388
Categories: Updates


Here at TibiaHof.com we are proud to present a new feature: character deaths.

That's right, activities will now also include character deaths. Here's an example of how it will look like:

As you can see the sudden death rune indicates a character death. It will display up to 4 deaths in one activity.

Check out this new feature on this page!

Minor change

Another minor change to the site is that we have introduced a new icon that links to the tibia.com website.

For example, the tibia favicon in the image below will link to the characters page on tibia.com:

24th Nov, 2013 - Weekly Update - Fixes and Improvements

nils    (Nov 24 2013)      0          299
Categories: Updates


We have changed several things on the site.

No more chat or languages

This might be a little controversial, but we have decided to remove the chat and translations to other languages of the website.

Since the forum was introduced we realized that there was no use for the chat anymore, and that's why we removed it.

As for translations, we will not support any other language other than english at this moment. This is because we want to profile the website as an english fansite where the main spoken langauge is english. You can still post in other languages, but we will not actively pursue the translation of the website (of course, you are still free to use built in translators).

Forum improvements

The forum has been improved, in some places it will load up to 5-6 times faster than before!

We have also added badges to the forum memberlist, so you can get a nice overview of what users have received badges.

Special thanks

Special thanks to user elyluvzya, who pointed out that there's a mount missing from the list of mounts.

A beautiful piece of pixel art that conveys a sort of mystical presence. Embellished with carefully placed outlines of golden streaks makes this item pleasant to look at and a must-have in any household!

We will contact the winners of the competition soon, so be sure that your registered e-mail on your TibiaHof account is correct. A list of the prizes you will receive can be viewed here. The winners will also each receive a TibiaHof badge.

Thanks to all who participated in the fansite item competition! Picking just three out of over 100 submissions was a very difficult task, but we are happy with how unique the items were and how imaginative the Tibian community can be.

Stay tuned for more competitions to come!

Introducing new feature: Badges

What are Badges?

A badge is a proof that you as a Tibian player and TibiaHof user has achieved greatness - whether it be winning in one of our contests, achieving status on the site, being in the highscores, etc.

What do they look like?

The badge is a 32x32px image icon. Each badge image is unique and is displayed on several places on the site; such as on your personal profile, forum posts, community pages, and more.

Badges looks like this:

1.png

Only five badges can be displayed at each time. For example, up to 5 badges will be displayed on your user profile.

How do I mine a badge???

By the end of every month we create badges that we distribute to users, as well as announce it in a news article. We only generate a limited amount of badges at a monthly rate, usually 5-10 badges.

You are most likely to gain badges the more active you are in the community.

What kind of Badges are there?

There are basically five types of badges:
  • Super Rare - only one badge of this kind exists
  • Rare - 2 to 9 badges exist of this kind.
  • Semi-Common - 10 to 29 badges exist of this kind
  • Common - 30 to 49 badges exist of this kind
  • Very Common - 50+ badges exist of this kind

Future?

The three winners of the fansite item competition will win one badge each:

3.png4.png5.png

Each such badge is Super Rare, i.e. they are unique and thus there is only 1 of its kind.

Check out a list of all badges here.

You can always find a list of all badges if you go to Community > Badges.

The fansite item competition is coming to an end - on Oct 31st we will close the forum thread where you can submit your items. Once this thread has been closed, we will not accept any further item submissions.

You can still submit your items on this thread.

User profiles have been revamped to integrate better with the newly added forum.

Here's an example of how the new profiles looks like.

Minor fixes
  • Fixed all checkboxes and radio buttons, so now you can click on the text next to each checkbox/radio button to select it
  • Fixed a bug with image search
  • Fixed a bug with not being able to tag players when editing images
  • Fixed yet another bug on forum that made it impossible to view character information on players with apostrophes in the name
  • Fixed a few details with the layout

Badges?

As you can see on the profiles, we're soon introducing a new feature called "badges". Basically, it's similar to achievement points - you can collect these badges by doing something great. More about this in a couple of weeks, so be sure to check back =)

Categories: Updates


The start page now loads about 5 to 6 times faster than before, due to improved caches. The loading time has been reduced from around 30 seconds to around 5 seconds on the start page.

We are looking into improving the performance on the website in other areas as well.
