Updates!

Hello everyone!

Over the past few days we’ve made some minor updates to Oasis to get ready for some even bigger updates in the future. If you haven’t noticed the updates yet, you can find them below!

1. Text formatting

Now, you can easily format your in-game text when sending messages on Oasis! You can use bold, underline, big text, and even small text! To do this, simply add one of the following before your message, like a normal command: “/bold”, “/big”, “/small”, “/underline”

In the following images you can see how to use them and what they look like.

Underlined Text

2. Finding players in the same room

If you’ve ever had trouble spotting a player in the room, then this feature will help you out! When you’re in a room, simply open the Users in Room list (Show Buddies -> Show Online) and hover over a player. If that player is visible on your screen (not hidden behind an object), you should see a light glow around their player to show you where they are.

3. Add Furniture and Clothing items through the new account manager

Tired of logging into the game just to add your favorite items? Can’t remember all those numbers for the item IDs? Now, simply login to beta.oasis.ps and select “Clothing” or “Furniture” on the left menu bar. From there, you can search for either clothing items or furniture items and add them with a click of a button. If you’re logged into the game, you don’t even have to log out. Just simply add the item and it’ll instantly be added to your account in-game as well!

Various other things have been added and fixed as well. Users should not be losing connection randomly anymore, unless there was a specific error causing it to happen. We’ve also added a transformation limit so that users can only transform once every few seconds to prevent spam.

Make sure to actively check and interact with us on Twitter so we can keep adding to and updating Oasis!

Thanks,
Oasis Team

We need your help!

Hello everyone!

Our new account manager (https://beta.oasis.ps) is starting to look really good! We’re hoping to continue adding more features to it to make it better for everyone. We’re hoping you guys can provide us with some cool ideas for the new account manager, such as an inventory editor, penguin editor, etc.

You can either submit your ideas via comment or through Twitter (preferably so we can see the ideas faster).

Thanks,
Oasis Team

Addressing some concerns

Hello everyone,

We’re sorry for the whole situation and we know there is nothing we can say or do to make up for it, but it would only be fair to be honest with our users.

Recently, there have been various websites accusing us of maliciously storing your passwords without any encryption. While we can’t say what we did was the right thing, we also can’t say we were doing it for the wrong reason. Some of you may have noticed our new account manager (located at: beta.oasis.ps) and how it’s missing some core features such as changing your password or viewing your penguin. While we can admit this was a poor choice, our development team was planning to launch a change password function that didn’t allow you to use your old password or anything similar to it. The way it was going to work was to check if your old password (the raw_password) was anywhere in the new password. We aren’t going to go into specific detail about how the actual code works, due to security reasons, but we hope you understand that we only had good intentions.

Although this is no excuse for our poor design of the new system, we hope you can once again trust Oasis like you used to. We would like to inform you that we have since dropped the plans of this feature and moved onto a more secure way of changing your password. Your password is now and forever going to be fully encrypted and will never be stored insecurely again.

Thank you,
Oasis Team

What happened?

Hello everyone,

During our scheduled maintenance, some issues came up and caused a lot more downtime than expected. While we were working on the updates, an attacker managed to gain access to our database while it was unprotected. Because of this, we have reset everyone’s password for them and we urge you to change any other passwords that might have been similar, or the same, as the one you used on Oasis.

Nothing we can say or do can make up for this unfortunate incident, but we would like you to know we have learned a big lesson from this. Not only have we secured our database with even more security, we have changed keys and passwords for every one of Oasis’ servers.

Although this is a major and extremely unfortunate event, we are going to make this a lesson to all. Always use a strong, secure, and different password on each website you visit. We hope everyone will start, or continue, to use secure and safe passwords from now on.

To reset your password, go to https://account.oasis.ps/reset-password

If you used a fake e-mail, simply make a new account and submit a support ticket. Please note we will use your IP address to match up and verify you own the account you’re inquiring about. Our team will not directly use your IP address to match it up, but a hashed form to compare both hashes and see if they’re the same.

 

Additionally, each account has been credited +25,000 credits.

Thank you,
Oasis Team

Summer Kick-Off Party Music

Hello!

Just like last time, we need our users’ help to pick music for the party! We’ll be picking songs that many users have heard before, so mostly popular songs. We would like you guys to comment below if you know of any good, popular songs that all users might enjoy.

On June 2nd, we’ll close the comments and start creating the playlist.

Thanks,
Oasis Team

Prom King and Queen

It’s almost time for the Oasis Prom! That means we need to start thinking of who will be crowned king and queen!

For this, we need your help. Here is a list of every user attending the prom (or that has a ticket at least). Pick a king and queen from the list and comment below.

Note: Even if you see that a certain person has a ton of people voting for them, that does not mean they’ll win. The final decision is ultimately decided by the users at the prom this Saturday. We’re just looking for the top ten finalists to appear on the voting list.

Introducing: Oasis Market

Hello!

If you saw our last blog post about the credit issue, you might have noticed that we mentioned a new feature. It’s finally ready! You can find the market here: https://account.oasis.ps/market/

You can sell credit items (not VIP things such as nameglow, etc) that you buy or win. For now, the only credit item is the Prom Ticket, so if you aren’t able to get one right now and they sell out, you can always try buying one from here.

Make sure you are logged off before purchasing items. You will not get your item and you will lose your credits if you are logged into the game while purchasing. We cannot assist you if you do not follow instructions.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below.

Thanks,
Oasis Team

Credit Mistake

Update: All credit codes that were purchased and used have been reset so they can be used again. We’re sorry for this mistake once again.

Hello,

Today our team was working on a new account system for the upcoming market feature. The feature was working pretty well until there was an unfortunate mistake that caused everyone to get millions of credits. Due to this mistake, we were forced to reset everyone’s credits to 5,000. Around ~210 accounts remain unaffected, but for those that were not logged in at the time, your credits have been reset.

We apologize for this and we wish there was a way to make it up to you, but there is nothing we are able to do.

If you purchased credits and lost them because of this, we will give you all of your credits back, even the credits you spent. Open a ticket with your transaction ID and PayPal e-mail address and we’ll be happy to assist. Update: All credit codes that were purchased and used have been reset so they can be used again. We’re sorry for this mistake once again.

Once again, we are very sorry for this. You should see the monster online on the snowball server more often now so that users are able to earn more credits. Remember, you earn 100 points when you hit the monster with a red or yellow snowball only. If you use a regular or white snowball, it gives you the regular amount of points.

Thank you,
Oasis Team
