Hummingbirds and More

Hey jammers, welcome to jamaasian summer! The only new item at the moment is the Pet Princess Castle of Epic Wonders.
AJHQ has added Hummingbird pets to Jamaa, but only for members who buy a special $9 one month membership deal from AJ Outfitters. Click here to see the new membership.












The Summer Carnival has arrived to Jamaa, click here (or look at the post below) to find out all that you need to know.
There is a new contest, this time it's for the next pet! Be sure to submit your work by the 17th of June. That's next Sunday!
I was right about the penguins; these new nonmember animals should be waddling their way as fast as they can toward Jamaa, hopefully they'll make it by the next update!
Members now have 300 den inventory slots, which I find really exciting. Now if only they'd raise the 100 item limit in the dens.
As many of you have noticed, all clothing items have now been converted into more three dimensional images. Their colors have been affected as well, but only in stores.
What do you guys think? Personally... I think these items look kind of ugly, but what's your take on them?

Below are emoticon effects that were removed soon after the update, I thought you'd still like to see them.
Little faces now appear in your chat when you make the corresponding symbols. The one above is :O but simply check your chat history after using the desired emoticon to find its coding. For some reason numbers show up once and a while with them, perhaps it's a small glitch with the new system.
Members can also use the moving emoticons, but they simply freeze. Sometimes there are a series of apostrophes behind.
There are also loading bars when a message from a jammer has been sent and is about to appear. Strange. . .
This feature what deleted about two hours after the update, perhaps it wasn't working properly. Hmm . . .

Here is this month's calender. Not much is revealed...
I hope you like the new update. It doesn't have as much as hoped, but it's alright, don't you think? Happy jamming!

    1. The freedom items probably won't come until July, because of Independance Day. They might come later in June,

    1. Yes, they are. The tiara looks like someone built it out of clay. :P

      Also, they added commas to your number of gems. Like when you look at how much gems you have and you have more than a thousand it will say 1,000 instead of 1000.

  6. They are 3-d because they make the animals and items in a 3d program, then flaten them to give them a more detailed look.

    They just didn't flatten the items. C(;

    2. I agree! The 3D looks pretty cool, but it does interfere with the items itself. The readin the 3D items look so weird to us is because we are so used to seeing them flat.

    Replies
    1. Clover Blankets, Royal Blankets and most likely Heart Blankets have started to appear really small because everything else is 3D.

    Sounds cool! Too bad they removed those chat emoticons... Maybe they are just fixing them, and will bring them back? I hope that is the case. ^.^

  14. I kinda like the new look of the clothes actually... but im trying to boycot animaljam even though im playing right as i type... I sent animaljam a letter about all of the stuff like, People dating, Some bad glitches that are NOT the fun kind... and even the new stuff that some people hate! i even said that they should call us "Jamaasians" and not "Jammers" because, like, When did this new name calling thing come about? so I waited forever and they finally sent me a reply and they deliberately called me a Jammer!!! I am kinda angry and also just... Weird feeling... I think i need a nap... and some food...

    1. "Jammer" was used since like beta and it was the original version because snowyclaw or someone made up "Jamaasians"

      so actually "Jamaasians" is name-calling

      Delete
    2. You're right about the new stuff though... remember when we didn't have to pay for another animal if we recycled one? Like we only had to buy animal slots.

      Delete
  15. I don't like the look of the new clothes... =( its probably because i've been playing since AJ started...

    1. I've been playing for 3 years, and yeah, the 3D stuff ruins it, and kind of humanises it... it just doesn't look jamaasian... I mean, AJ is meant to be about animals, plants, nature, and spirit sort of stuff, and here they are making weird 3D scary stuff... :/ WHY?! I wish they'd make AJ better...

      Delete
    2. @jammers:

      -sighs- although that is true just remember this- they probably worked WEEKS trying to do the 3D clothing, and this is the thank-you we're giving them? as much as I'd like to stab their hearts out (kidding) I'm also thinking of how long it took them to make. I think we all should do that too. But I am NOT saying I like it, I am NOT saying I authorize and or can tolerate it. I am merely suggesting don't take it too hard on them.

      -pac10 and yeah- i've been playing since it was started, so just imagine how it feels...
