Uh I just happened to stumble upon this article but turns out Party Castle has closed its doors as of 8/31/2010. Wow that’s sad, it’s not even a year that the service has been open! I guess it’s just dumb luck all these games I quit eventually ended their service. I guess I must have a knack for knowing when something is epic fail
Apparently you can still download the client and play around with stuff offline though.
Well if it wasn’t obvious already I uninstalled party castle. I don’t feel like drawing lately, let alone designing any clothes. To be honest I think Party Castle is a great concept and for artists it’s really a nice way to express your creativity. However I’m at a state where I feel my art sucks, I have no creative design skills – I just copy stuff from other games (like Pangya)…and I’ve been away from it for so long I don’t even think anyone would care if I made anything lol. Maybe one day I’ll come back but considering I haven’t touched it in over 2 months there’s no need to keep it around on my computer.
Since I am no longer following it I won’t be posting any further updates about it on this blog. (Until I return…if that ever happens.)
Yea it’s been a while but there seems to be a lot of significant changes I figured worth mentioning. They have reorganized their shop so it’s a lot easier to find stuff now. They’ve also added the option to export wireframe when you want to edit your stuff in photoshop or something. This way you don’t have to keep flipping back & forth between the client & your art program. Makes editing textures a lot easier. They’ve also added their new cash system “Crysta”. I’m not quite sure what Crysta currency is used for other than their newest lottery:
You can use your party points or Crysta if you recharged any to try to win lottery items. Read the rest of this entry
Based on this video I’ve created the outfit on PTC. Now available for purchase. For the love of god someone please make this dance ;u;
It’s been a while since I posted any PTC updates but there’s a Vocaloid Event now going on and since I really like Vocaloid stuff I figured I’d mention it.
Basically all you do is dress up your character as a vocaloid by making or buying pre-made vocaloid parts (there’s a ton to buy so you don’t even have to make anything) and then uploading the picture to pixiv with the tags “PTC” and “ボーカロイド“. Also if you uploaded it to party castle’s site make sure to add the “ボーカロイド” tag as well. I uploaded my Kaimiku picture lol. The event will go on until 11/30. I have a Miku outfit project planned that I may start on tonight or at least this weekend…so this is actually good timing. ^_^
The other event is if you turn level 20 before 11/30 you have a chance to win a computer, some bromide cards or webmoney I think? Additionally those who turn level 20 will automatically receive a special 3D “part” to customize. I still haven’t even done anything with the glasses piece I received…haven’t been on Party Castle much these days.
It has come to my attention that I’m playing too many games *_*;; Need to reorganize myself a little here. Let’s go down the list of what my current/future plans are for these games (and this blog.)
aisp@ce - Recently they released the water shooting game but I think in order to have any decent shooting power you gotta buy the super expensive nicopoint cosplay. As of October, it’s been 1 year since I began aisp@ce and well it’s pretty much boring. You just buy cash items and chat and that’s about it. The water shooting was supposed to add some spice to the game and I could have sworn they wanted to add a new island but when I logged on the shooting didn’t even work and 1 year later, no new island. I’m thinking around November or so I’ll finally uninstall this thing. Read the rest of this entry
As of today Party Castle is now available in open beta! That means anyone can sign up and play. If you join please add me as a friend! Judging from the banner below the Halloween event it looks like there’s gonna be piapro collaboration events as well. I’ve gotten a little bored with PTC lately but hopefully more events will encourage me to make something new ^^.
I realized today I’m in a lot of “dress up” related games. Aisp@ce, Party Castle, Poupee Girl and now I joined Tinierme. Technically Pangya is dress up golf if you think about it too. As I evaluate all these things, I start to think like “what is there to do other than dress up your character…but what if the only worthy dressups require you to pay a ton of $$$”. At least Pangya has the golf aspect but what does Poupee have? Read the rest of this entry
Finished my Halloween dress for Alicia. She’s my “big boob” model while Erika is the more smaller chested model. Ironically enough though, I used Kooh’s Halloween dress as a model to make this one. I shoulda used Arin’s I guess? But I really liked Kooh’s design so I went with it. xDD I think it came out okay ^^ You can check out the parts in more detail at my showcase.
For those who gave me your emails for the invite codes – I should hopefully have them by tomorrow afternoon.
So today I embarked on an adventure to make a male model on Party Castle lol. I was gonna be a cheapass and use someone else’s face/hair but …I just felt I’d be too much of a cheapass if I did that. Unfortunately I have no idea how to draw hot guys so my guy looks like a grown dude with a shota face Oh well at least my “revised” waiter outfit from Pangya came out well. The male models on PTC have really FAT pant legs so I couldn’t get the same look as Kaz from Pangya. I decided to sorta improvise and gave him some stripes of sorts on the side lol. Oh well I think it came out fairly well either way. One of my friends was squealing to buy it before I even finished writing the description for it This guy will be my model for any future male clothes. If anyone has ideas/suggestions on what I could make with this guy I’m all ears. I have plenty of ideas for girls but for guys…. yea. My only idea at the moment was Soul from Soul Eater and some misc Kaz outfits.
Party Castle’s been awesome. It’s gotten me back to using my tablet and actually creating some decent stuff. I’ve made 3 new outfits this week. First up is Erika’s musical note outfit from Pangya:
Since in order to make a new “character body” you actually gotta pay 4000pp to buy a new model I figured I could re-use my Erika model for something else. Read the rest of this entry
Today I received a key to the Party Castle closed beta that I signed up for a month ago. I’ve been eyeing this thing since back in March because it was supposed to be some kind of a game where you draw a character then you import it into the game and boom your character’s in 3D. Well it’s like that but not quite. If you’re familiar with Pangya’s self design and IMVU, it’s basically a combination of the two. Read the rest of this entry
