Hey you guys, you answered the question of renaming pets recently - please address the question of "unconverted pets" now - is there any chance we will be seeing an unconverted paint brush released in the NC mall at any point? How about a premium item that people can buy with NC and sell for NP? Do you guys have any interest in releasing an item like that? ~justanotherperson1

Here is a quote from Scrappy on this: I was asked why they don't work in our system. As I clarified, it has nothing to do with making them customizable (they'd never be able to be, even if the pets themselves did work in our system, due to the different poses). The clothing references were for pet's actual paint brush colours, from the full Royal ensembles to Aisha collars, we'd have to make those work too. Now, saying they won't work in our system is definitely true (trust me, I use this system setting up paintbrush colours all of the time). As I said before, we have to manually tell the system to ignore the way it should be done and pull up the static image instead for that particular pet. It's not something we can just put out a paintbrush for and have you be able to do it, it just doesn't work that way. As for why we won't make it work in the system, if we even could do it, it would take a LOT of time and resources, for something that we no longer support. That decision was made a long time ago, and it hasn't changed - officially, UC pets are retired. The ones that exist, exist and will stay that way until they are converted, but new or already converted pets will stay converted. I know many of you want them back, and I'm sorry, but our stance on them hasn't changed. All I was doing with the previous question was providing more information on a specific aspect of how they work.
