@Chaegyung It is supposed to be possible, I believe, but I haven't actually seen it.

Is something eating up all the Gemshards lately?

At least now I can try both CB pairs for green Gemshards ...

 

(spot the theme)

There have been a lot of silver lunars dropping in the cave so maybe they are just a bit more common right now? They look good together with the green!

Is there a collection of different even gen patterns? Theres the checker, purebred, and gaia patterns, as well as the lovely commons, but I don't know if there are any other named patterns. I had an idea for a thue-morse inspired pattern for two breeds, where the father is the opposite breed and the mother is the same breed, and I wanted to see what else people had come up with.

This one isn't a checker: https://dragcave.net/lineage/n/Purple Pony Point

Basically, influence every baby to be the gender of the "outside" breed parent (Purple, in this case)

I suspect you could do something similar with Seasonals and possibly Xenos.

 

Colour collection: https://dragcave.net/lineage/n/z' Commander KaLuna

 

Alternating colours: https://dragcave.net/lineage/n/Sixtinus Meranyx (inbred, but you get the point)

Could also be done with Dark Greens, Blacks, Florets, Seasonals, Glory Drakes, Lunars, Xenos, Nebbies, Dorsals, Ridgewings, Fire Gems, Gemshards, and Stripeds (plenty of those have been done already). Technically, most of those would also count as "purebred".

 

Almost forgot this "encapsuled checker": https://dragcave.net/lineage/ipdR8

 

What is an "opposite breed"?

Thank you for pointing out those lineages. If there's not a database keeping track of this, maybe someone should make one.

By "opposite" i meant the other breed. For example, in a dark lumina/ember lineage, if the father is an ember, the child would be a dark lumina, and vice versa. Your first lineage is actually pretty close, except instead of going x->xo->xoox->xooxxoox... mine would go x->ox->xoox->oxxoxoox->xooxoxxooxxoxoox... Basically, it would take the alternation a step further.

I've never bred luminas, so I don't know how bad it is, but I like the lineage too much to care. I think I've come up with a catchy name for the lineage type, unilineal. Unilineal refers to inheritance systems that are either matrilineal or patrilineal, and since the dragon is always the same species as it's mother or father, depending on the lineage, I think it works.

I was going to say I did a project like that but derp, it's just a normal alternating checker. Still one of my favorite projects, though.

 

I'm so happy right now. After ages of miscolors and no interest, I finally finished my last 4th gen on my nebula lineage, the aptly named The Long Road.

 

Also bred a full set of 5th gens on the first go (with Fertility, which I only seem to remember exists for new pairings...), fingers crossed for the right colors. I am so, so close to finishing this lineage, which I started 4 years ago. Just 2 more generations to go!

@Nerruse I love your Sunset x Nocturne -- especially the nighttime view!

And Wow! That's a lotta Nebulas! Good luck with the coloring as you finish it up!

@Nerruse 

Ah, you just got to love Nebula, They're so tricky but nearly every lineage with them is just so pretty. And I also just remember fertility when I have new pairs (and even then I sometimes just use it when I absolutely can't have them refuse each other).

I also wouldn't have thought that Sunset x Nocturne would look quite so nice together! 

 

Thanks to someone really generous I was finally able to breed this beauty.

Additionally I finished this lineage. It is nothing special but I still like the result :).

I feel like any breed can look good in the right lineage.

 

I don't think I'll ever do another neb lineage again though lol, this is way too much work.

 

Out of 4 eggs, only 1 colored correctly. Ironically, it's the daughter of The Long Road, who gave me so much trouble these past few months...

I posted this in the Lineage Project Creation Guide thread but I think it might help, here, as well if anyone's interested in making their own lineage mockups for future lineage projects: I made a spreadsheet of all the different dragon tiles to make producing mockups less of a hassle and more fun!

To use it, simply copy and paste it into MS paint and C+shift, V+shift the dragons you'd like to use into one of the template below.

Spreadsheet is organised (in rows:)

1.) - 4). Westerns (1+2 = breeds with sexual dimorphism, 3 = Westerns with over two sprites, 4 = Westerns with only one sprite)

5.) Wyverns

6.) - 7.) Rares (or, at least, what I consider rare.)

8.) Easterns

9.) Traditional Drakes

10.) A mixture of Lindwurms, Amphipteres and Leviathans (since I thought these groups were too small to have their own rows)

11.) Two-headeds

12.) Drakes

13.) Pygmies

14.) Alts/hybrids

15.-17.) Holidays (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine.)

16.) - 19.) Holiday Spriter Alts (Valentine, Christmas, Halloween.)

20.) Zombies (in case you're going to make a dead-line)

21.) Prize/Shimmers w/ alts

Have you ever given up on a project? Because that's what I'm going to do - for the first time.

In June last year, I caught https://dragcave.net/lineage/uKBLx from the AP and thought: "Well, that's nice :lol: - and as I have a CB Gold, I'll make a checker!"

It's been roughly 14 months of regular breeding, and I just don't think I'll ever get a Gold. https://dragcave.net/progeny/Mj6rC (Aurab is my only CB Gold).

I'll make one more attempt with a different mate next week, and then I'll try something that may actually be a bit more rewarding. And that's coming from a person who loves her Turpentine / Tan Ridgewing checker.

I'd thought I'd feel bad about just giving up, but I actually feel relieved and happy to be able to try out something else.

wow.  that's a lot of attempts.  sounds like me trying to get my mutamore/silver checker off the ground.

Is anyone else doing PB red dorsals ?

 

I live in hope:

 

Have: 5th even gen purebred all red dorsal .Red_Dorsal_egg.gif

 

Want - bloodswap. Or at least an EG I can build in....

 

Make an offer on my egg !

Hubby wanted me to announce he finally got his first (and maybe only) alt-black in his quest for and even alt-green and alt-black lineage.

 

Started it years ago, couldn't get any alt blacks, gave it up for a long time, and is now trying again.

 

One out of 154 tries...not good odds if you ask me.

 

https://dragcave.net/lineage/oBlio

 

Please wish him luck, I doubt he'll succeed if it takes more than 150 black eggs for each alt.  Not to mention all the no eggs or green eggs.

Wow! Good luck to your hubby. I don't think they are quite that rare in general. He has just had some pretty phenomenal bad luck. Hope it has turned for him now that he got his first!

Getting Alt Blacks isn't easy, but 153/1 is really bad luck.

Congrats to your husband, and kudos to him!

 

Aurab has just blown his last chance of producing a Gold from Monarch with the different mate I'd promised him, but that means we're now free to try something new. Luckily, just the right egg came along on the AP: https://dragcave.net/lineage/UCwtU

 

It will be Aurab's new challenge to give me Gold from an Antarean mate - let's see if we'll ever get there! :lol:

I really thought it was one of those code things.  Like when they finally figured out that turpentines really wouldn't breed with whatever dragon it wouldn't breed with.

 

It annoys me that I love the alt black hatchling look, but dislike the adults.  And because of the rarity, I can't even try to persuade him to freeze it.

 

He  has a bunch of the alt greens already.  Let's see if he can get any more alt blacks.

 

Thanks for the good wishes.
