Latest Item Database Updates
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on March 3, 2018, 6:32 pm NST

It's been awhile since we've posted about updates to our Item Database! Below are the major new changes that have been keeping us busy over the past few months:

Openable Items
We're very excited to announced that our Openable Items guide has been completely revamped and incorporated into the Item Database. With this new guide, we've added the ability for an item's contents to show up on their item info page:

And, we also now show the opposite direction--you can see what a particular item can be found inside:

This update isn't just for Neopoint items. We added openable Neocash items to the guide as well, along with the "Inside This Item" and "Found Inside" functionality as seen above!

The new guide is linked from our Article Listing here on our main site, along with the "Content" dropdown in the Item Database.

Classic Neohome Audio
While we continue to update our old Classic Neohome Previews (click through to see if you can help!), we've also been adding audio files to items that will play music when placed into your Classic Neohome. If audio is available, look for a play button next to the item's preview:

You can pull up a list of all Classic Neohome items that have audio by clicking on the "Has Classic Neohome Audio?" option on the search sidebar. (It's under the "More Search Options" link.)

Faerie Quest Requests
After a number of requests, we've added Special Searches for Faerie Quests! Each quest type now has a special search with all of the items requested by that particular faerie. You may use these searches to buy up in advance of opening a Faerie Quest Cookie, or for the annual Faerie Quest Events.

See the "Faerie Quest Lists" section on our Special Searches page for future reference.

Special Searches List »

Trading Post History Privacy
A small update: we've filtered out petpage links from our Trading Post history wishlists. If we see a link in the format of /~petname, then we'll filter it out for privacy.

Neocash Special Categories
We've gone crazy with special categories! Our Item Database staffers have been hard at work adding new special categories to Neocash items. Here's a full list of the new categories:
  • 13 Days of Trick or Treat
  • Altador Cup Insider Experience
  • Altador Cup NC Challenge
  • Altador Cup VIP Access
  • Altador Rising
  • Atlas of the Ancients NC Challenge
  • Backpack Packing Centre
  • Camp Wannamakeagame
  • Capture the Comets

  • Fortune Cookies
  • Free the Faeries

  • Runic Doors
  • Scanning for Buried Relics
  • Six-rific Birthday Celebration
  • War Booty

Use the "Special Category" option in the search bar to search for one (or multiple at the same time!) of the Neocash categories above.

Plot Special Categories
Neocash items weren't the only ones to get new special categories. We also split up our generic "Plot Prizes" special category and created new ones for each major plot/event that's occurred over the years. You may now search for items by the following categories:
  • Altador Mini-Plot
  • Atlas of the Ancients
  • Battle for Meridell
  • Brucey B and the Lucky Coin
  • Champions of Meridell
  • Curse of Maraqua
  • Cyodrake's Gaze
  • Desert Diplomacy
  • Gadgadsbogen Puzzle
  • Hannah and the Ice Caves
  • Journey to the Lost Isle
  • Krawk Island Disappearance
  • Lost Desert Plot
  • Moltara Mystery
  • Neopet V2
  • Return of Dr. Sloth
  • Spooky Food Eating Contest
  • Tale of Woe
  • The Faeries' Ruin
  • Volcano Mystery
  • War for the Obelisk
  • Wraith Resurgence

Use the "Special Category" option in the search bar to search for one (or multiple at the same time!) of the plot categories above.

Miscellaneous Wishlist Enhancements
Last, but not least, we've also made a few small updates to wishlists:
  • In addition to making a private wishlist that only you can see, you may create an "unlisted" wishlist that will only be visible to those you share a direct link with. It won't be listed on the sidebar with your other wishlists. Toggle this option on the "Settings" page for your wishlist.
  • By default, we've hidden items marked as obtained on public views of wishlists. This is to make it easier for those wanting to fulfill a wish to see what you still need. You can still see the obtained items by clicking the "Show: Obtained Items" link next to the sorting options.
  • We added purple labels to NC wishlists and trade lists on the public views, so that you can easily see what type of list it has been marked as.
  • We also added the "Compare NC Lists" button to the top of each NC list for better visibility.

You guys are amazing - thank you for all your work!

purplebin, 03/3/2018, 7:39 pm NST
You guys are the BEST! Thank you so much!

lucky300, 03/3/2018, 7:50 pm NST
This is fantastic! I especially love the NC openable items section.

On a kind of off topic note, why did you guys remove your coming soon page? It was cool to see what you guys were working on.

dreww355, 03/3/2018, 8:08 pm NST
I love all the new plot special categories! Great work.

drzoidberg, 03/3/2018, 8:17 pm NST
Excellent! Thank you!!!

1jediboy, 03/3/2018, 9:00 pm NST
*claps* Well done!

1jediboy, 03/3/2018, 10:24 pm NST
Hmm... Might I make a suggestion for the future, please?

Since there are now lists of Faerie Quest items, that made me think of a method you can use to help people who are on quests.

What if a comprehensive list of users who would usually sell said item you seek were on display?

OBVIOUSLY the users would sign-up, or would be asked to take part. (They would also be rotated if needed)

It would GREATLY assist those who can't search for reasonably priced quest items.

Thank you for reading.

braided, 03/4/2018, 1:40 am NST
Amazing! Thank you so much. The JN resources are so invaluable.

starfirefluffy, 03/4/2018, 3:11 am NST

Wow that's a lot! Thanks for all your hard work on them!

yasmin_sb, 03/4/2018, 8:36 am NST
I noticed you guys had added a bit on the item database about what's in the openable items, including their values. Thank you JN!

mamsmelk_jr, 03/4/2018, 9:37 am NST
Awesome! You guys keep coming up with new stuff that really helps us out. Thank you!

spabl, 03/4/2018, 10:00 am NST
Wow!! Great work guys!! Thanks for all the work you do for that amazing database!! *clap*

dave - JN Staff, 03/4/2018, 10:03 am NST
@lucky300: We removed that since in general, it was all a lie. We weren't always working on those things, and we always forgot to update it... So it was a pretty useless page.

jorgesgirlforlife, 03/4/2018, 10:16 am NST
So this is why it's been so quiet on JN! 5 days is a long time between updates, but that's really fast for working on these major upgrades! Very cool 8-)

charliebanana666, 03/4/2018, 10:34 am NST
congrats on the great work, very helpful!

ducky - JN Staff, 03/4/2018, 11:53 am NST
@Dave but wouldn't it just be cool to keep users in a lie?

"yes...they are doing this"

....of course I can see point things being there and never happening and then users going " D: That thing has been there forever! when it's going to happen!"


mistyraider, 03/4/2018, 2:28 pm NST
Thanks JN -- you are amazing! Also dedicated, fun, communicative, accurate, and you always respond to my questions, corrections, etc. I'm glad you are here.

cloonshannagh, 03/4/2018, 2:56 pm NST

mistyraider said it so well!

lucky300, 03/4/2018, 3:35 pm NST
@dave That makes sense haha. Are you still working on transferring the rest of the site to the newer layout? That's what I was mostly wondering about.

dave - JN Staff, 03/4/2018, 4:34 pm NST
@lucky300: Yes and no. We'd like to make the switch eventually, but since getting the Item Database shifted over, we've been instead working on new features for the IDB (especially ones we put off from before the revamp) and other places around the site.

lucky300, 03/4/2018, 4:48 pm NST
@dave Thanks for the update!

cat, 03/4/2018, 8:49 pm NST
Thanks a bunch! This will make figuring out where goodie bag exclusive items come from so much easier.

catsrnice, 03/4/2018, 9:10 pm NST
You guys really should just replace tnt. Two buyouts and I'm still waiting for it to happen.

rose_of_autumn, 03/5/2018, 10:10 am NST
Thank you for the update!!! It will be really useful!

josie, 03/5/2018, 5:23 pm NST
Wow, you guys! That was a lot of work. Thank you so much for doing this for us

myflickyflapp, 03/5/2018, 7:21 pm NST
Amazing quality of life improvements! Now still just need the ability to use the JN search function within wishlists!

katina_choovanski, 03/5/2018, 10:56 pm NST
You guys are awesome! $$ for your trouble/service, thank you very much!!!

sakeru187, 03/6/2018, 4:50 am NST
I LOVE the Openable Items guides. It's the greatest update yet imo! Thank you very much!

deedee60, 03/7/2018, 8:00 am NST
I didn't think you could make the best item database search even better, but you did it! Thanks for all of your hard work.
