Ectocats are an open upgrade species, who evolve with love, time, and ghosts!
Anyone can join!
This is an open species, meaning you can make your own Ectocats!
Ectocat art only, please.
Submit to the correct folders!
Be kind and respectful. Rude behavior, spamming, trolling, or non-ectocat advertising will result in being banned!
Want to make on of your own? Simply follow the guidelines on the species sheet below! Just remember that this is an UPGRADE species, meaning they start out as blank slates without upgrades, and grow as you use them.
If you're confused about making an Ectocat, take a look at this info sheet for some helpful tips!
Once you've made your Ectocat, double check its traits, then submit it to the "Approved Ectocats" folder in the gallery!
Only approved Ectocats can evolve and participate in events, so any art done before your Ectocat gets accepted will not count towards upgrades!
Once your Ectocat has been accepted, you can begin evolving it with the upgrades listed in the journal below!
Evolution (WIP)Ectocats have the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing spirits, but they can't do it on their own. So how can you help your Ectocat? Well, for starters, spending time with your Ectocat and drawing it is the most common way for these cuties to gain ghosts and evolve. However, just a quick headshot or sketch won't do.
There are no events right now, check back later!
Below is an ever-expanding list of reoccurring events and the lore of Ectocats:
Ectocats Lore and TraditionsThis will be updated as more traditions/holidays/ect. are founded or discovered.
What are Ectocats?
Ectocats are creatures who evolve with love, time, and plenty of ghosts!
How does it work?
Ectocats have a special ability that allows them to absorb the spirits of deceased animals, and then use these spirits to grow ectoplasm shapes around the bones growing out of their bodies. However, to fully grow these parts they need plenty of spirits, and need to be nurtured and cared for by a capable owner! Only happy, healthy Ectocats will evolve!
How can I get one?
Simple! First, make sure you join the group, Ectocats-Central, so once you're done you can submit your Ectocat to the appropriate folder for approval. Next, follow the species guidlines and design your every own Ectocat! Make sure to double check everything before submitting. Don't forget that every Ectocat is born without any ectoplasm or upgrades! If anything isn't quite right, you'll be notified so you can fix it. Do not repeatedly re-submit your design! Once everything is right, simply reply to our submission comment and we'll go from there! :3
How many can I have?
As many as you want! Just remember that each Ectocat you make evolves separately.
How big are they?
They start out the size of a house cat, but once they start evolving they can get as big as you want!
Can I use bases or have someone else draw my Ectocat for me?
No! Each Ectocat must be designed and submitted by their owner! If you use bases your submission will be automatically denied. Likewise, only art you yourself draw of your Ectocat will count toward its upgrades. You can make gifts, which is encouraged, but this won't count for the recipient's upgrades.
If I don't want my Ectocat anymore, can I give it away or sell it?
You can GIFT your Ectocat to someone else, but any upgrades will be lost and the Ectocat will no longer be able to evolve. Remember, only happy Ectocats can evolve! You cannot sell your Ectocat, though!
