  1. New year, new one of these. Yay!

    The green and red looks so great together! Probably why people like using whites for holiday lines so much haha.

     

    Also, apparently skywings are really hard to breed? I never really noticed because I had done such a large PB line, that now when I'm trying to do a checker with nhiostrifes and an inbred checker with spessartines they almost never breed skywings! It's almost like a 1 in 10 chance when breeding. *sigh* Fingers crossed on these.

     

     


  2. I was looking for nhiostrifes in the alpine, so I was grabbing eggs to get the flow moving. Somehow I was too slow on clicked a CB gold that was followed one egg later by a CB silver!! I have no idea how someone that was camping there could have beat me to those...

     

    Of course, that now means that I've seen 2 more CB metals in the alpine than a CB almandine tongue.gif


  3. Hmm, I definitely don't have the loading problem everyone else is having. It's probably why I like the new skin so much, way more than the original. I'm liking the new fonts as well, though I do wonder why it changes for lineages.

     

    1960's is too white for me to find useful, but I guess it helps other people out so there's that.


  4. Or, the descriptions on the adult dragons can be on the dragons that have no actual encyclopedia notes yet. Essentially it would replace "There are no notes available for this breed. Check back later; new information will be added periodically" with the description that we would normally see. Then should it get an update in the future it can be removed, like a placeholder if you will.


  5. Name: Xisibbre

    Breed: CB Nhiostrife wyvern

    Mate/s: Turakh, a CB skywing

    Fail to produce: Rejected dry.gif

     

    I was really excited to get the nhiostrife because that's who Turakh was able to find during the Valentines event. Unfortunately, it seems only one gal will be good enough for him. What he doesn't know is that I've been able to grab several CB nhios and I'm going to keep trying until they like each other.


  6. I had a bunch of unnamed CB skywings so I just said "well what if I name them all after Coheed and Cambria song titles?" and I was surprised to get a handful that I didn't have to use any spaces in (of course, I owned a few already lol). But some of those titles are so long, I had to use abbreviations. xd.png


  7. Thanks rubyshoes! There was some fun experimenting, and deep down I hope they weren't just totally random choices. Weird probabilities aside, I've seen some great combos come out of the event.

     

    I myself have finally nabbed the CB nhiostrife I needed to have as my skywing's mate. Turns out I had bred him with lots of other partners but they weren't very clean lineages. So starting from two CB's will be very exciting!

    My lovely skywing Turakh attracted an equally splendid nhiostrife! He started off with a more blue-ish cave once he saw a fair blue nebula, but the nhio is the gal who truly took his breath away. The incorporation of purples with pops of red/orange brings out the vibrancy of the pair. They'll have a seafood dinner for two before flying into the sunset on their double wings.

     

    I've always wanted a checker of these. I think this is a sign that it's time to start... laugh.gif


  9. I was just about to answer a bunch of questions, refreshed my page, and got:

     

    "After days of meticulously arranging shinies, meats, and other draws; after countless rejections by dissatisfied females, Turakh has attracted an admirer: a nhiostrife wyvern! You leave the happy couple alone to enjoy each other’s company."

     

    I do love nhiostrifes! Definitely a great alternative to the nebula I was hoping to get. I was actually 50 across the board in all items when it happened.


  10. Okay all! In my quest to try out the tally system for tolerates and repulses, I ended up having to make a spreadsheet (it's a mess otherwise). I've currently tallied the relevant findings before page 17 18 19 but still have to do the rest after. As always, please feel free to double check me.

     

    edit: caught up, and added the two from the post right after this one


  11. Guys, I think we have a problem. I kept playing with the items and the same dragon and it kept changing the "tolerated" and "repulsed" categories. At first it only tolerated sweets and misc, then changed to mana and meat, and then only tolerated meat.

     

    Help? sad.gif

    This isn't the only occasions it seems to be doing this. Especially if you'r'e seeing changes within your own cave, it's hard to pin it down to something like your own dragon breed, cave type, items in cave, etc.

     

    Is there anything in particular that does seem to stay consistent? This is a question for everyone of course. I mean, the matching system must have some way to choose between breeds like Black and Frostbite which give the same messages without just choosing one randomly.

     

    I think I will move to a tally system instead of just a definitive "this is what they want" and see what happens. So if three users say that balloons tolerate shinies, but one other sees it repulsed, I'll label it with "Shinies - 3T/1R" or something. Primary/Secondary will stay as is though, since those are pretty rock solid.

     

    Also, apparently there are distinct New Pink/Bright Pink dragons, and different Coppers? Can someone confirm that for me, and what messages they get?


  12. Day: 5

    Location: Cave

    My Dragon: Skywing

    Visiting Dragon: Nebula

    Attempts:

     

    40-40-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (items can't be all equal)

    41-40-40-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (confirms primary)

    41-41-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (repulsed by meat)

    41-40-41-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates shinies)

    41-40-40-41-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates sweets)

    41-40-40-40-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates misc)

    41-40-41-41-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (confirms the tolerating items)

     

    So nebula tolerates shinies, sweets, and misc but repulses meat. It overlaps a little with previous results, but still a bit different. I do wonder if location is somehow being taken into account?


  13. Hmm, we are starting to get a bit of overlap in breeds that aren't matching perfectly. I think it would probably be best to keep a few combos that we find, but as soon as two different people can come to the same conclusion, I feel like that will be the "correct" answer. Maybe I'll italicize the line once we get corroboration on a breed. That would mean...gotta go recheck these posts DX

     

     

    Day: 5

    Location: Cave

    My Dragon: Skywing

    Visiting Dragon: Black

    Attempts:

     

    40-40-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (does not like items equal)

    41-40-40-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat.

    41-41-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (repulsed by meat)

    41-40-41-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates shinies)

    41-40-40-41-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates sweets)

    41-40-40-40-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates misc)

    41-40-41-41-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (putting primary with all tolerated items gives the same answer)

     

    So tolerates everything but its secondary. Lol what are you doing black dragon.


  14. EDIT : but please correct the entries for balloon and canopy dragons in the first post.  Both of these breeds have "tolerate" for their secondary preference and "repulse" for the other three.

    Added those. Though I am concerned that both of them look essentially the same, and they might even have to differentiate on another level ohmy.gif *plays Inception music*

     

    I was also testing a deep sea, but then it changed to a teimarr in the middle. D: I might never get a full check finished.

     

    Day: 4

    Location: Cave

    My Dragon: Skywing

    Visiting Dragon: Teimarr

    Attempts:

    5-5-5-5-5 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more meat. (does not like them equal)

    5-6-5-5-5 - It seems she liked the collection of meat, but left to find a dragon with more shinies. (shinies secondary)

    5-6-6-5-5 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more meat. (does not tolerate shinies)

    6-6-5-5-5 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more meat. (does not tolerate mana)

    5-6-5-6-5 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more meat. (does not tolerate sweets)

    5-6-5-5-6 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more meat. (does not tolerate misc)

     

    Conclusions: Teimarrs hate ALL the things!


  15. If we want to analyze this easily, then I suggest the following relatively simple procedure:

    1. Start with everything at 2-2-2-2-2.

    2a. If the visitor likes the collection, then you can immediately derive the primary and secondary preferences, and you know that all 4 non-primary categories are tolerated (= no repulse).

    The test can probably stop here for that breed.

    2b. If the visitor is only mildly interested, increase the primary and have something like 2-2-2-2-3 (if the primary is the misc items).

    Save the changes.

    3. You will then know the primary and secondary preferences, but you still have to play with the other ones to check which ones are tolerated or not (= accepted at the same level as the primary)

    4. Pick one of the 4 non-primary kinds of things, increase its number to 3 and save.

    5a. If the visitor is still interested (not just mildly), then this is "tolerated/accepted/whatever-name-you-prefer" (or if you prefer: not in the repulse list). You can keep it at 3 and test the next one.

    5b. If the visitor is only mildly interested, then remove the item that you have just added and increase the next category that you want to test.

    6. Repeat step 4 for the 4 kinds of items that are not the primary preference.

    With only a few tests, it should be possible to analyze quickly the breeds that we see.

    Went ahead and put this up in the first post if that's cool with you, and started adding some of the tolerated/repulsed items to the list. If there are any typos let me know.

     

     

     

    Maybe it depends on the cave? Or the ratio overall? Helix9 what cave is your dragon in?

    Thread's moving fast between posts, lol. My skywing is in the default Cave. I hope it's not because of the low vs high number of objects since I see you're experimenting on the high range.
