  1. Thanks for the responses and for the link Fuzz.  I like the diversity of the swamp which is why I went with it but any other new Biome would be nice as it would expand the world and provide more dragons the opportunity to be shown at one time which would be the main point in my opinion.

  2. I think it would be nice to add a new type of Biome.  With adding new dragons regularly it would be nice to have another area for dragons to show up in.  This will allow more breeds to be available at the same time plus it will allow us to maybe revisit the sorting of what types show up where.

  3. And I totally understand those points BUT While EATW did suck, I'd bet most players probably weren't affected by it.  Especially taking into account all the new players since and all that were around then who don't play anymore.  And while I hope it never happens again I can honestly say I don't run my scroll out of concern for if it does and those who weren't around for it probably don't either.  So while yes changing the mechanic will put the minds of some at ease I still believe it will only be for a minority of players. And as someone who has run game sites for more than 10 years I will add one other thought.  If someone wants to abuse the game and be a troll they will find a way to do it. So while removing this one thing may fix this minor issue another will just pop up.  So as I mentioned before since TJ is a person who has limited time I'd prefer changes to be implemented that affect the masses in a quality way vs something more minor.


    Now all that being said if he does decide to adjust it I won't be mad I'm not against the idea just advocating for the best changes we can get in the time TJ's life allows.

  4. I think this is a great way to recognize all the people who have put so much into this site.  The only downside is that there are many people who work on the artwork for different stages of development so how would we go about making sure each gets credit?  Maybe a clickable link for each image in the encyclopedia that simply takes you to the art creators page?

  5. After reading through this I guess I just don't see the purpose in changing something that really doesn't affect all that many people and is so easy to avoid.  Most folks don't use more than a couple hatcheries and if one gets sick fogging it for a couple hours is so easy.  I can't see the purpose of changing something that affects so few people when other updates can improve the quality of play for all players.

  6. @HeatherMarie I know how you feel.  When we moved to our current house I was so excited because we lived near multiple schools and there were lots of kids in the area.  We got 7 trick or treaters that year.  That is what inspired me to decorate Oct 1st and add to it every year.  Kids saw the decorations while out with their parents and the next year we had 30 and each year grew until last year we had around 100.  It was the best year and I'll never forget the joy on their faces as multiple kids said "I have been waiting all month to come to this house!"  It made it all worth it.

  7. I love Halloween.  Every year we put up my decorations by Oct 1st and I also add to the decorations at my house.  I don't like to scare little kids so I decorate in fun ways with lights and creative cute props.  This year the big addition is a homemade replica of Zero the dog from Nightmare Before Christmas and his Doghouse.   Also I added a set of three pumpkin that talk, tell jokes, make funny faces, sing and other things.  They are projected animated pumpkins on uncarved pumpkins not animatronic.  My wife and Kids are just as in to it and we all dress up.  Yesterday we went to the local pumpkin patch for our yearly visit and spent the afternoon doing corn mazes, riding rides, enjoying the petting zoo etc..  And then all through October we drive around at night on different days and look at the lights and decorations people have put up.  It's such a great fun time for our family.

  8. HeatherMarie,  I appreciate the info.  I did key word searches to look for similar topics and didn't find anything probably because I didn't think to use the word clutch. 


    I think this might be up for consideration still since I believe a BSA is very different than a whole game mechanic change and could solve the Lineage Building issue while not allowing people to hog every egg they ever make.   it would definitely have the trade off TJ mentioned built in to the limits while not affecting the game as a whole.  I agree that Holiday or Event dragons should be excluded from this idea if it were to get past the initial stage of discussion.

  9. Wonderful thoughts.  Thanks for replying.  Yes I would not want to have this exploited.  Once a parent fosters then I think it should be nice and simple. It starts the clock on a nice long cool down so you can't foster another until it is over.  Maybe even have it so you can only foster 2 eggs at a time no matter how many foster parents are available.  I love the Foster parent verbage you typed up and the idea of having the egg locked to your scroll.

  10. I'd love to be able to keep multiple eggs when I breed certain pairs.  Whenever I have one that I would have kept both right now the only options is to see if the new owner will trade it back.  I think the idea of a new BSA called Adoption would be a really handy way to let you keep a second egg if you produce twins. It could and should have limits imposed. 


    What limits I'm not sure.  Maybe only one egg ever or a longer cool down similar to other BSA of 28 days. 


    Or maybe it should be called Foster so as not to have to mix up lineage.

    I just spot-checked five of the breeds not unlocked for you in the market, and none of them have the egg sprite unlocked in the encyclopedia.


    You must have the egg sprite unlocked and visible in the encyclopedia, not just have seen a single egg.

    Thanks for looking but as of yesterday they were unlocked in the encyclopedia and the market so I just spent the last 30 mins reunlocking as many as I could which was about 20-25 different species that were unlocked before.  I'm not to bothered by it, just that something changed.  


    Edit: As an example Last week I requested views in the Encyclopedia help page.  I got 2 views and unlocked the purple Dino.  This evening I viewed another purple dino and I have raised one myself.  It now shows only 1 purple dino egg viewed when no matter what it should be at least 3 in the last week alone.  Not that it really matters because by the time I get enough shards to buy a purple dino I'll have unlocked them again I just found it odd.

  12. I had every egg type seen in my encyclopedia and unlocked and available to buy in the market but as of today well over half of them are locked again.  Seems to be a bug in the system

  13. Still on the search for a Purple Dino egg to finish off my encyclopedia collection.  Please PM me a link if you find one.



    I got this today thank you for the help i received!

  14. I have a purple dino adult in my collection what I need is someone who is growing one to post or send me a link to their egg so I can unlock it in my encyclopedia and marketplace.  It is the only egg I couldn't buy if I wanted to.  Anyone able to help me out?

  15. While there are other suggestions that may fill this gap and anything is better than nothing.  My initial idea was for simplicity sake not only for us but for TJ and the others who run the game.  Having been part of a team for another game the simple ideas tend to get done and done quicker.  This comment isn't to shut down feedback or other ideas just explain why I went so simple.
