  1. Basically any pairing that pits something released in the last few years against an older breed is doomed to be a rough time. In your case Aeons are also semi uncommon while Nhios are common, which makes the odds even worse.

    Pretty sure TJ's said ratios don't count anything older than a year, so technically any pair involving two breeds older than a year makes the release dates irrelevant. Only the ratios themselves should matter at that point.

     

    Not that it matters for this case - Aeons are less than a year old - but in general.

     

    I wonder if being "blue edges" confused them in sort. o_O

     

    They're not sure which language they're supposed to be speaking, LOL.

    StormBirdRising, what sort are you using? If it's legacy breed sort, they may internally be called "blue edge" or something like that. I'm still on legacy breed sort and that's where mine are. New breed sort doesn't rely on internal names but on the publicly shown names, so new breed sort should (theoretically) put the Siniis with the other S dragons.


  2. Aha oops xd.png

    Dw, I almost made the same mistake. I typed a serious response about three times before I finally decided Ansela's 2014 forum join date and 1k posts made it likely she was joking. tongue.gif


  3. Are stylish scripts allowed on the forums? I would like to customize the colors of the forums because they burn my eyes when I lurk them at night.

    As far as I'm aware, TJ allows stylish scripts for both the cave and the forums as long as you're not giving yourself an unfair advantage or otherwise breaking the ToS.

     

    I base that statement off this post by TJ, as well as a private discussion with a mod about that post.

     

    You can achieve custom coloring and styling on a per-person basis with an addon like GreaseMonkey.

     

    There's way too many colors (moreover, used in way too many places) to have "pick your own" be officially supported.


  4. Ah I see, I thought that would be the case but I remember something like that, maybe it was from before we had the Teleport BSA. Thank you anyway Lagie! smile.gif

    It worked like that before Teleport, yes. After Teleport was introduced, TJ added a new random string of characters after the egg's code in each abandoned link; trying to grab an egg without that random string of characters will always fail. This effectively means you must click the egg on the AP since (as far as I'm aware) there's no other way to know that random character string.


  5. Did it actually look animated to you or just a plain image? It looks like a plain gif to me, but IOU is saying it should be animated.

    Odd af. It was actually animated for me last night when I posted the image snippet, as was the original IOU posted. But tonight it looks stationary and only the edited one you posted is animated. Even here on page 409, IOU's quote of my snippet is stationary and your edited image is animated. Oh well. Glitch, I suppose.


  6. How do I embed this in my signature?

    I don't know where I got this image - somehow it's just in my folder so I apologize if that's anyone's work. It's supposed to be a gif; when I drag and save it it also shows as a gif, but somehow it's just not moving when I try to put it in my signature....

     

    Another really weird thing is that it shows as gif the first time I upload it anywhere (like if I copy the link again and post). It moves for less then a second and then it stops moving. Help?

    not work? It looked okay when I tried adding it to my sig.


  7. Why is a Verdigris copper dragon called a green copper when they are blue? lol

    The color itself is verdigris, which refers to the greenish-teal color that naturally forms on copper due to weathering over time. Wikipedia covers it pretty well, although with a nice picture of the Statue of Liberty that shows coloration almost identical to the verdigris coppers.


  8. I have yet to hear earthquake being useful for anyone. Maybe for NDers, but even they seem to use other methods more than Earthquake. It is fairly ignored BSA that adds no real value to scroll and is fated to stay that way unless it is reworked in some way to make it better.

    Hi, experimenter here, the EQ BSA is utterly useless because of its failure chance. Every second counts with turned eggs and I don't have time to EQ twice if the first one does nothing. I'd rather use Kill if I absolutely have to force, because I know Kill will do something. (With that said, I have heard of experimenters who use it. I just don't understand their logic for doing so.)

     

    Would a sitting Alt black (4g, pb, no alt ancestors) in exchange for a CB neglected be a fair trade?

    Ehhh that's pushing it a bit imo. Alt blacks are super rare but the lineage you describe is in a weird place. It's not messy enough to freeze and it doesn't sound attractive enough to raise and breed.

     

    I agree with Celly that a 2g would have better odds. A 4g with a really pretty lineage (4g eg, 4g eg with alts or Thuweds in the base, etc.) or an alt with a freezeable lineage might have a better shot, or you could try to boost the value of your trade with a 3g prize or something. Definitely wouldn't hurt to throw your alt on the trade threads, though. I know there are a number of newer experimenters who may not have an alt black yet.

     

    Also I would trade a ND for a messy curled black...


  9. Said nothing, got a normal mint egg. Haven't been able to trigger the event again. Huh.

     

    For anyone trying to retrigger the event: flipping biomes doesn't appear to do anything and grabbing an AP egg doesn't appear to do anything. I have a theory grabbing a cave egg might reset things but I don't feel like holding a random egg for 5 hours if I'm wrong.


  10. I have the same problem and aksked about it in this very thread a few days ago.Except: for me, cloudflare is not displayed and can't be allowed, so customsort doesn't work at all.

    I've been keeping an eye on your posts about the subject, but I'm scratching my head as to why cloudflare wouldn't show up in your script list at all. If you globally allow scripts, does that fix the issue? What other Firefox addons do you have? (Honestly, this might be worth its own thread at this point. There are half-a-dozen posts about your issue scattered across two unrelated threads.)

     

    Edit: ooh. If you mouse over the NoScript icon while on DC, does the Untrusted submenu show Cloudflare? I just tested and domains marked as Untrusted don't show up in the main NoScript dropdown to be allowed or temporarily allowed. They're only accessible from the Untrusted submenu.

     

    I just found a fog cloud in the wilderness. It's a four-character code, too, so I can only assume it's quite old. Anyone else seen this?

    Yeah, someone noted it in the screenshot thread a few days ago. No idea what it is, though, as Missingno is still happily on pf13's scroll.


  11. That's true for alt custom sort and fertility, certainly. It's very odd, as TJ posted that DC doesn't require it....

    Yeah, I noticed your thread about that. No idea what to tell you, as DC pretty obviously does require it for several bits of functionality. That's been going on since at least the dawn of fertility, too. (Probably earlier than that; I've just never used alt custom sort, so fertility is the only reason I ever have to enable scripts off Cloudflare.)

     

    I do know the dcave.net scripts are relatively new; perhaps TJ is trying to transition away from the cloudflare.com-hosted scripts and forgot he hasn't done it yet?


  12. I can't use customsort since a few days (at least, don't really know since when since I didn't try to sort since weeks). I am using NoScript, but everything stays greyed out even when I allow all scripts.

    You're sure all scripts are allowed? I just tested and I had to allow scripts from dragcave.net, dcave.net, and cloudflare.com for the BSA dropdown to work. I haven't tried custom sort but memory suggests cloudflare has to be script-enabled for that too.


  13. Well, if they haven't even read them... I'd still probably play it that way - gives you one day longer at least.

    Agree with this. You can let the eggs drop to 1d or a bit lower before hatching, as well - just make sure to influence before they get too low on time, and don't incubate.


  14. Teleporting an egg to someone doesn't give it an extra day unless it was already incubated, right?

     

    Aka, there's no way to influence gender on those Halloweens still in the AP, is there? sad.gif

    I'm super late to this party, but the last time I saw the AP with Halloweens the eggs were roughly 2d 23h. Stun would do what you need done here - the extra day boosts you to 3d 23h, letting you Influence, and the 2d without views leaves you with a 1d 23h Influenced egg which would need prompt ER attention. Mildly risky if you're not paying attention to the eggs, since the ERs are taking hours to hatch everything, and mildly annoying since you have to wait the full 2d, but better than misgenders.


  15. Just curious... I'm too locked to DO anything but - I am tracking a few of my eggs and they are all at 3 days and not picked up. But the eggs in the AP are now at 2 days 23 hours. Is there a lag in the timing ? I know the extra day went, so it isn't that - but...

    2d 23h would show before 3d, no? So your eggs are still in the backlog behind the 2d 23hs. Unless I'm misunderstanding your question entirely?


  16. I don't think there is. It's just, you see once you have them.

    You're sure it's not something simple, like scrollid modulo 3? I suppose I could see it being randomly generated, but scrollid mod 3 seems so much more elegant. The referenced paragraph on the Wiki doesn't indicate randomness to me, simply a reshuffle.


  17. I am the ultimate loser. 2 Resurrections, 0 Zombies. 5 tombstones littering my scroll.

     

    If I can't manage it on the night with the best chances, I'm certainly not going to do so at any other time. sad.gif

     

    I'll have to seek out all these other ones to fill the Encyclopedia...

    Rough luck. :x It happens though. See my post above. 0/25 or so across 3 years of Halloween night attempts. Finally picked up a couple of successes tonight. RNG will shift back in your favor eventually, just gotta keep playing the 31st of the month. Keep trying!
