Hey Emmy! I love to play around with the makers, and since I have limited internet time, I can't really do it that often. Maybe, you could possibly make the makers downloadable? I really love to play them! This would help me become not so bored all the time! <3

We have thought about that... and probably some time in the future there will be some kind of offline one. The thing is, all the market pieces and hoard stuff would not be available since it isn't actually "inside" the makers. It is downloaded separately as you use it ;)

If you open the tab of the maker you want to use while you're online, then leave it open, it will still work when you are offline. :) You just can't make new assets or delete old ones.

Just thought I'd put in my penny's worth of info! :)

Alright! ;D Although, Emerald, you could make it with "variables". Like, if you bought a piece, then you can use it in the offline makers by downloading all your bought pieces, and for example...if this was in gamemaker, it would be like...
Create the variable "boughtpiece_tiara"...
Then, when you buy the tiara...
"boughtpiece_tiara = 1"
And...
"If boughtpiece_tiara = 1"...
...then it would include it in the downloadable parts pack. ;D That would be so awesome! sorry if you can't understand...hehe!

If that's what you meant, that's cool! ^-^

@PonyLove: Thanks for the information! That's very helpful! :P

lol, it isn't a matter of me not understanding code. It is more a matter of how we would do it so that parents could understand it was a safe and trusted download. It would just be one single file, we wouldn't want to have to replicate our entire online structure on the users computer...

Plus, we still need people to come here regularly and if we gave everyone everything to have on their computers, there wouldn't be much reason to come back. The ads don't make very much money, but without them we would have to shut down the site because emerald sales don't make enough to cover server costs ;)

Well, first of all...my parents allow me to download anything. ;D
And second, I'll come back here to talk to my friends on the forums! I love to talk, hang out with people, you know. :)

I am sure that is true :)

We have to design for lots of people though, and most of our traffic doesn't actually use the forums... they are too young or don't have actual accounts ;)

Also, Firefox has a "Work Offline" mode in File > Work Offline. That means, you are offline, but any page you have visited, you can be on. ^_^
