When a Purebred rodent appears on HamsterStory and has the best capacity among all the rodents of its species, it wins a progress star.
This is a very prestigious reward, because it means it's the best rodent of its species in the game!
It will stay this way until a new Purebred rodent of the same species with a better capacity appears.
The number of progress stars awarded since they started playing appears on breeders' page.
Progress stars let you win coinz' ( 10
for each progress star), reputation points (1 for each progress star).
And finally, you get 1
for free every time you accumulate 30 progress stars.
The capacity of a rodent represents the maximum value that its level can reach without using bonuses or items.
It is calculated when it first appears in the game, and remains the same throughout its existence.
The greater a rodent's potential (i.e. its capacity), the higher its value.
It is up to the rodents' breeders to look after them as best as possible in order to capitalize on this potential, using a variety of activities that will increase the rodents' levels until they reach their capacity.
The comparison between the capacity of the best rodents of a certain species and the species' standard capacity allows you to measure its progress: the wider the gap, the more advanced this species is in the game.
Some very wide progress gaps can exist between species, especially depending on the number of breeders who have rodents and breedings of this species.
