18,000 Imagines per pet at 30 frames per second for a 10 minute animation clip for the pets to interact with us. This is written by a person who helped create FooPets working with FooMojo.

He even talks about the creation of Heart Park and how long it took to make (2 months)

Tiggee LLC out of Virgina who hosts and maintain this site and could do improvements to this site.

My husband is a software network engineer, runs his own servers and works on multiple web servers.(he’s a webmaster) So I asked him to look into Foopets for me, and how much the site is worth and how it was created. As we know a person who can do animation possibly like how FooPets is done if we could find the code. Which he can’t seem to find any information more (so far) on how the site was coded. But what software was used to create the animation. (small amount of html driving a flash based server ruby/rails application on a bare linux box no automated testing or code quality metrics.)

The guy who posted some of the information we found is Mark Fussell on his personal blog back in 2015. Vice President of Engineering for FooMojo

edit we found the softwares used. :)

this…this post has made me excited
just holding out hope that someone, anyone will tell us what’s going on with foo:(

This site actually might cost quite a bit.

He could definitely take over the sites hosting, IF the owners of the site let him. The fee to run this site on our servers is at least $500 or so a month (which might be cheaper then what they pay now) because there is data probably backed up all the way from 2007. I doubt foo would ever consider it, but he has been great with being on top of making changes and updates on other websites. If that were to happen we could talk to the guy we pay to do our businesses graphics and design. I would have no problem paying him to look into the animation. See if he could do anything about it. I may give him the details we already have and see if he could make something similar or at least recolor some pets. We do not have the code to the animals only what platforms they used and kinda how they did it. But if we could host the site we (really he) would know so much more.

Unfortunately I don’t know who he could approach and ask. I doubt they would go with a small LLC over a larger company anyways. But the website would then be secure and wouldn’t go down as often on his servers.

Pokey Lexi I’m very unaware as to how all this works, but I’m sure many members would sign a petition to have the site in the hands of someone who would actually pay attention to it.

Medium

Just have to figure out who to talk to. With no support, thats not an option.

He can’t really approach the other webmaster, because well he would basically be asking to take over a client. I wonder if Starplut still owns foo. Don (my hubby) is sleeping now as its almost 11 and he works tomorrow. I wonder if he can make a sales pitch to them. Other then that all I can have him do it look into how the site was made and see if he can learn the code himself or pay to get some help from our graphic designer.

my logo the designer made for me. ^

I dont think he does bad work at all. But I’m not sure how he does his work. Don says he’s pretty sure he can do this. The guy has an IG I’ll ask Don for it when he gets up tomorrow so everyone can see his work. This isn’t something we have talked to him about yet, just ideas we spit balled.

I would prefer to hopefully make foo better over making a new site. Honestly I would love to be able to buy this site, but I don’t have a million dollars! LOL if I did I would probably buy this site to try to turn a profit. Maybe i’ll win the lottery lol

I honestly wonder if it’s still turning a profit or not, it would have to be for him to keep it and not worry about it, if it wasn’t it would be sold or shut down surely

Medium

Lexi That’s on my mum and I’s lottery win list – buy foo lol

Medium

This site is actually still pretty popular it ranks in the 1st million out of 64 or 65 million sites on the web. I don’t remember the exact number he said. He did say a game called Furry Paws is more popular than foo is. I think ranking in the 64,000 or so. So I’m thinking it does make so serious money still. We do not know how much they pay monthly for hosting. But he assumes it’s well over 1,000 or 2,000 due to something on the hosts website. The only thing I can think might work is having a cheaper platform to run the site on for a cheaper price and with just as much or more to offer. I think it would be more since this site goes down and is not secured. Plus he makes sure sites domain names are renewed asap before someone can steal it. This sites domain name expires in 9 months.

Same! That and running an animal sanctuary, though we are in the middle of getting approved for our 501c3 to have our own rescue. So I kinda get my wish without the need of a lotto win. But owning Foopets is something I would just love to do. But I would also hate all hate mail I would get if something went wrong sooo….

I’ve played furry paws!!! I don’t think there is actually a single online pet game I haven’t played, but Foo just tops them all imo lol

Medium

I agree I just started this other game. I think I have seen other pet professionals talk about playing it on my facebook group. I don’t think I’ll ever like anything as much as I love foo.

Medium

Pokey Lexi Ooo, what is the game called? I’m always interested in finding new ones even if they don’t compare to foo!

Medium

I’m sorry I should of worded that better its that Furry-Paws game. I have played Dogzer and liked that many years ago. I think I’ll log into that account and see what ever happened to those pets.

Medium

Pokey Lexi I’m weirdly highly voted on Dogzer lol, look at the most votes members and I’m third – HuskyGermans – although i haven’t played it properly for years (this is Skye’s second account)

Medium

LOL I logged on and thought my dog would be gone but hes not! I completely forgot how to play and decided to make a new account to help learn the ropes again.

I think this thread might be of interest, Lexi :) I can’t confirm any of it, obviously, but it does answer a lot if true.

Also this and this page here although the original comments were deleted so it’s only people replying to those lol.
