  1. Dragons chosen for release are taken down a minimum of two months before launch. It's usually much longer than that because people can take a while to sign the artist agreement, sometimes a lot of other stuff could be queued up for smaller releases, etc.

     

    EDIT: I was mistaken, checked actual document for correction.

  2. I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WERE NEW SPECIES ALSO AND I FILLED UP ON WHAT I THINK ARE FRILLEDS AND PINKS AND NOW I MUST WAIT OH NUTS

     

     

    Sorry, I'm spazzing with excitement. laugh.gif

     

     

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DRAGCAVE!

    Assuming that link in your sig is your scroll, you're actually locked down with new eggs. :3

  3. But I seem to recall that the big problem was actually with not with the Frills but with the same description being used for 4 different dragons - the Frills, the Ochredrake, the Horse dragon and the Skywing - all sharing all the same description and all being together in the old single Cave?

     

    We could never hunt for any of these dragons without likely being locked with one of several wrong ones... that was certainly what bothered me and those I recall speaking with about it, and there were lots saying the same, quite volubly.

    I mentioned this. Frills bore the brunt of the complaints because 1) it was during and after the horse release, and 2) the other dragons with the same description were Dove dragons that people didn't mind keeping. The AP was constantly blocked with them, with not a single skywing or ochredrake egg in sight, and the supply of dragonhorse eggs didn't catch up with demand for some time as a result of the constant blocks.

     

    So being the only one that people specifically did not want, and also as an effect of that myth that they were "good rare breeders" (eg. mass breeding frills to rares to take advantage of what people mistakenly believed was an increased chance of rare eggs, and occasionally to deliberately block the AP with eggs they knew no one would pick up to ensure that a trade could go through without being sniped), it all led to a glut of frill eggs that far exceeded demand, people complained that there were so many unwanted eggs, decided there had to be a specific reason no one wanted them aside from circumstance, and the rest is history.

  4. Wait isn't that the same for the horse dragons?

    There was once a time where everyone was really frustrated with frills because they all wanted dragonhorses instead, because they were new and the other eggs with the same description were Dovealove dragons that everyone liked.

  5. Thank you for the reply, I appreciate it. smile.gif

     

    I must have missed that warning - I remember reading about the possibility of them returning, but I admit I didn't follow everything in the respective thread(s). I guess if I had read it, I wouldn't have felt that bad today. unsure.gif

     

    Anyway thank you for bringing them back. wub.gif

    Well, we can't expect everyone to always be on top of what one person says. I hope you find other ways to enjoy them. <3

  6. Happy birthday DC. smile.gif Thank you for the things I like, which have always outweighed the things I didn't like.

     

     

    I think I would be very happy about today's updates (apart from the lineage view, as usual tongue.gif ) - if only the Frills had returned as they were, or with just the update the female got.

     

    [the sad part]

    It will take some time for me to get over what happened to the male Frills. I know this sounds inappropriately pathetic for something that happened to some pixels in a game. It's just that I really liked the old sprite's pose and had always made plans what I'd do with it if the Frills ever became available again. (Such as pairing them with female Harvests.) So today I woke up to find the fantastic news that I had been hoping for - and then I looked at my adult Frill and found out that realizing those plans had not finally become possible, but instead impossible forever. That was not a good start of my day.

    [/the sad part]

     

    I'm happy I can get some "Old Pinks" now, and maybe I'll even try to get a Zombie this year.

     

    I'm also happy the female Frills don't look very different. (Just like the Holly update that was also very respectful of the old sprite.)

     

    And the biome backgrounds are lovely! smile.gif

    I did always warn that males would be changing in the event of a rerelease. They were always meant to be different from the females. I'm sorry that your plans for the female sprite have been dashed, but hopefully you'll find ways to build lines around the new sprites.

  7. I am not overly thrilled with jungle as habitat....that is where horse dragons are found and they share a description.  Ochres are forest and skywings are coast.  I'd have preferred a different biome if possible.

    Well, the only other place they would make sense would be the forest and--

     

    wait

  8. This game. It's a game where you race horses by alternating between solitaire and strategic horse positioning with an extra side of RNG. Race horses until they retire, then use them to breed better horses. Get yelled at by rich horse owners when you lose. Get praised by rich horse owners when you win. Use your winnings to buy magical carrots.

     

    This stupid game has devoured hours of my time.

     

    I've never been so frustrated with solitaire why can't I stop playing it.

  9. Anything you want in return?

    I'd be fine with like... a breeding leftover anything. Up to you!

    I can breed IV ones but with how this one goes, it's a bit hard to get. Cuz I need the Timid nature and I'm not 100% how to get it all down to one Nidoran(M).

    I do have a 6IV Timid Ditto that I can use for breeding, so nature isn't really the problem... mostly just the IVs which take foreverrrrrrrr.

    I am also able to take cheaty routes for things but I prefer the long satisfying legit method so if you're in a hurry let me know and I'll speed things up.

  10. Judgemental hipsters who turn up their noses at something purely because it has a lot of fans are also the ones who have the most to learn from Undertale. Ironic that this indie game is too mainstream for them to try it.

  11. Not sure where to post this but since it probably will be traded to ORAS or used on X/Y still, thought I'd ask here.

     

    I want to breed a Timid Nidoking with Sheer Force. Problem is my Nidoking I currently got has Sassy and Rivalry. I got to looking around and found out Druddigon has Sheer Force as it's second ability and can breed with Nidoking. Thing is this still creates another problem: How do I get both a Timid Nature and a HA ability to a Nidoran(M)? Does a second ability like Sheer Force make a Pokemon that has it as it's Hidden Ability pass on? That's also not including that I want at least a 5-6IV one. >_<

     

    I do got a Ditto with 6IVs if that will help. I'm not sure if the ability is hidden or not. Sorry if this is all confusing. I'm not good with the breeding part of this yet.

    Sheer Force is Nidoking's HA. I can fire up my X and see if I can breed that for you. I think I have a 5-6IV Hustle Nidoran around here somewhere...

  12. Yep. Hard to believe the end is in sight, can't wait to see what Hussie brews up next.

     

    EDIT: Act 7. It's been a heck of a ride, folks. See you for the epilogue.

  13. I'm hoping my reply to yourself and others on the news thread sufficed in answering this? The reply to this similar question is also on the article's talk page.

     

    Not sure what you mean by entry, I assume the article page? No files were ever renamed, I assure you. They are currently only now being renamed to their correct naming scheme which is "FoE 2016 x" (with x being the number they are in baskets). They were named "misleadingly" when initially uploaded because my apologies, I don't play Undertale, so I don't understand the references. But none of them were ever changed, that was just the name they were first uploaded with as I rushed to get all the eggs up on the page. (Sorry if this reply sounds snappy, I really don't mean it to be- this is just the fourth time explaining myself publicly for this rolleyes.gif )

    The edit history showed a lot of correcting and re-changing of labels. I wanted to know what was going on where apparently it was undesirable to let people point out what things are, as I saw someone putting descriptive alt text on one of the eggs that was then removed.

     

    I also noticed that I no longer have the ability to edit the page about myself. I don't know if this was intentional or some wikia limitation, but it is... jarring.

  14. You can submit eggs for the easter event!? ohmy.gif I was told that TJ has to pick you and ask if you want to submit egg designs. sad.gif That was a long time ago though.

     

    Anyway, I only have 5 left to grab. They all look so neat, but my MOST favorite would have to be the BB-8 one. It's too cute! xd.png hehe

    The way it currently works: be (or be invited by) anyone with access to the artist section, submit up to 2 eggs. People without access to the artist section can just PM theirs to the person inviting them. There's a few rules in place regarding submissions but they're usually not too restrictive.

     

    Most of us don't use our invites for various reasons, so sometimes it's worth it to go out on a limb and just ask. Even if the person you ask already used theirs, someone else might invite you instead.

     

    And before anyone asks, some people *coughmecough* submitted more than two this year because circumstances required it. We're not likely to get another year flooded with a single IP like this one unless the stars align again... or we scheme. :V

  15. Wondering why eggs in the FoE entry keep getting renamed to blatantly wrong or misleading names (eg. for some reason "Shiba" was changed to "Fox", "Undyne" to "knight", "Spike" to "dino" etc).

    I mean I guess technically "knight" is also sort of correct in a roundabout way but

  16. WELP since the cat is out of the bag I better tell everyone what my ten freaking Undertale eggs actually... are. Most are pretty obvious, and for others some people were close but just slightly off the mark. :V

    I was originally going to submit just the Delta Rune, but then the call came out for MOAR EGGS so I started making character ones and it snowballed rapidly. So anyone who felt that the spriters got a little too into Undertale: no, just blame me. I am 100% Undertale trash, have been for months, and no one stopped me I regret nothiiinngggg
