  1. I really like the new dragons a lot They have really nice colouring and the crystals are really pretty. Thanks spriters!
  2. I think it's just waiting for resources appearing on the hour, so if you have space on the ground, you should get one resource every hour - but it is randomised. I was lucky and got a bunch of stones overnight.
  3. The event's been really fun this year I'm mostly missing stone, but got enough overnight to repair the fort.
  4. Nier: Automata might be a good one. It's not open world, but has a decently-sized area to explore and has a strong story (and changing gameplay). Hollow Knight is a metroidvania, so not 'open world' but you can explore a lot of different areas. Owlboy I'd still recommend, even though it's the smallest in terms of space, because it has a very strong story and you can keep finding more of it optionally through exploration and doing sometimes hidden puzzles.
  5. I actually like it how it is. If there's a holiday biome, it's nice to have that for newer players/players who've missed releases and waiting for 5 minutes for it to refresh if absolutely no one clicks anything isn't a big deal. It also encourages more breeding and trading, rather than people just waiting for CB eggs to hatch.
  6. These dragons are really great, I like them a lot! Thanks for all the hard work TJ and spriters
  7. This event was really cool Thanks to those involved. Also the Spyro and possibly Inside(?) ToTs were especially great!
  8. My most recent death was a combination of enemies and lava in Owlboy.

    Abortion

    I have no personal investment in the debate (I couldn't care less about gender or sex), but that doesn't change the fact that there has been a lot of research on this topic and, based on actual research, you're speaking incorrectly. I don't think there are 79 genders, but there are at least four that I'm aware of (and you can find the information with a quick google search - I recommend JSTOR). Biological sex is defined by chromosomes (XX/XY), but as I said there are people with variations of that as well as intersex people. That is biological fact. There are not two biological sexes, no matter how strongly you may wish to believe differently. Here's a generic definition from google on gender: "the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones). "traditional concepts of gender"" You can see through the usage it is intrinsically tied into social and cultural differences. Please, go and do a couple of google searched on cultures where two genders isn't the norm (and there are several historical examples in case you're thinking it's a modern phenomenon). Small children like brightly-coloured toys - that's what the research says. Before they're socialised, they like bright colours and things that move, that's it. There's no intrinsic preference based on biological sex. Honestly, you can look this up. I've done research into it and it's very easy to find, especially if you have access to online academic journals. I understand from your argument that you see it as people being 'special snowflakes', but the facts are against you. There are more transgender people today than there have been for a while because of raised awareness and acceptance which allows people to come forward about it. It's the issue with reported data: there will always be people missing from it, especially if something is treated negatively. My last word on it (because this is off the main topic) is that there's a lot of good information out there which you can take advantage of if you so choose. I have no interest in making you.

    Abortion

    This is actually incorrect, especially if you're talking about gender (but I have a feeling you're using the term gender instead of biological sex). Gender is based in social/cultural understandings of roles, so it's entirely dependant on which culture you're born in - for example, there have been a variety of cultures which include a third gender or have people move between one gender and the other, because they're based in cultural understandings rather than anything concrete. In terms of biological sex, there are people who are intersex as well as those who have chromosome balances which are different from the XX/XY idea. For example there can be a person who has chromosomes XXY, so doesn't fit under the 'female is XX and male is XY' understanding of chromosomes. If you're interested in reading further on the gender side of things, I recommend Judith Butler's writing on the performance of gender. On the subject of abortion, no one has the right to tell others what to do with something that is inside their body. People need to be able to choose and putting laws in place to try and stop that won't work. Like other people have said, there would be back alley abortions (potentially lethal) and people buying medication to cause a miscarriage which, if unregulated, could also be very harmful or even fatal to the individual. A lot of people aren't in a position to raise a child and, like people have said previously, many people will get pregnant through things like contraceptive failure or rape. I agree with increased sex education in schools, but that should happen with abortions still being legal because even if people know about contraceptives and are extremely careful, there's still a chance to get pregnant - and they shouldn't be forced to carry and give birth to a child (a process which can be extremely traumatic both physically and mentally) just because someone else wants them to or has an emotional attachment to the concept of an embryo that couldn't survive outside of the body to begin with.
  11. I really like the new pygmies - especially the male's pose, it's really great! The others are very nice too and I don't mind the colour mechanics. Thanks for the release!
  12. Yeah! It's nice it was done as a kind of balance. That's true about regular dark releases - I can't think of many off the top of my head.
  13. I'm a bit late, but I'm really glad another bright dragon got released. I like the colour combination of the Pyrovars a lot (it's based on geyser colours, maybe?) and it's refreshing to have a dynamic pose. I also like the Truffle ones and the idea behind them.
  14. Happy birthday to DC! The updated sprites and new eggs look really good and the market and trading idea is cool I'm not 100% on exactly how the market works yet, but it looks like it'll be handy!
  15. I just had a question about the new Floret dragons and breeding. I tried breeding a Gold Floret with a Khusa dragon a moment ago and it resulted in a Purple Floret egg. I didn't realise Gold Florets could make purple ones - is there any information on something like elemental affinity which would cause one or the other to be bred?
  16. The green was definitely a surprise, partly because I forgot what day it is! I got a normal mint (I joined DC after the event last year so this was my first go).
  17. The bar is fire at the moment!

  22. The adults are so great I like them a lot!
  23. It's down for me too (using chromium on linux ubuntu) but I can view dragons in the hatcheries, just not click on them.
