Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

It would be nice if an announcement had been made in the news forum that we'd lost some data and that there was nothing that could be done.

 

Something along the lines of, "Unfortunately, some data was lost during the downtime and all cave actions, including catching and breeding eggs, have been rolled back to XXZZ cave time. We apologize for the inconvenience and for the fact that we cannot credit these losses."

 

Alternatively, if TJ's actively working on a fix (which would be wonderful), something like "Currently working on a fix for the downtime's glitch that led to all cave actions being rolled back to XXZZ cave time. Apologies for the inconvenience."

 

I don't play very much anymore, but things like this make me feel even less like making an effort to come back (not the loss of data, that's an understandable glitch that just flat-out happens, but the total lack of communication with the players about it. Come on, TJ, you're better than this).

 

ETA: Looks like multiple people are saying the same thing. Sorry for not reading further back first.

They are - and LOADS of new threads keep popping up - it would be great if something could be put in News for us all to point to - or even a message on scrolls, in that NEWS bit...

Is there a thread wherein people are re-doing trades? I've ended up in the same boat as a lot of other people apparently, and one of my trades partially reversed so I have both the hatchling I was swapping and the egg I got in exchange.

Why can't I rename one of my hatchlings? I'm trying to get rid of it's name but it just gives me a server error.

I checked my hatchlings and eggs for the first time today a few minutes ago to find that the 3G blusang hatchling that I named yesterday (at 4:33 am, as my action log tells me) no longer had its name. I have since renamed it with no issues, but is this something I should be worried about? I've never had anything like this happen before and I know the name (Winter Tide III) isn't inappropriate.

 

EDIT: I see what's going on now. Sorry I didn't check more thoroughly before!

If you're still experiencing this issue, try clearing your DC cookies and see if that works.

Could you please post more details in a new thread? I'll check it again after work. ^^

It means you were blocked. A full PM box gives a different message, and there's no "turn off all PMs" option.

Hey just wondering how does Xenowyrm breeding work? I know there's something about if you breed a Xeno to a non-xeno there is a chance of the egg turning out to be the Xeno that corresponds to the partner's biome. But does that only work for dragons that explicitly have the biome listed on their page (i.e. CBs that are from like 2014 onward)? Also if you breed two Xenos together do you have a chance of getting an egg that is a Xeno of a different variety than either parent?

The dragon cave wiki does a pretty good job of explaining under the breeding section: http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Astrapi_Xenowyrm

So in the first post of this thread there is everthing about breeding Xenowyrm:

Just read the Developed Theory and breeding Xenos is an easy task... depending on your goals. tongue.gif

 

Too lazy and tired so it is risky to answer your questions. Good night!

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this (or if there even is a right place??), but I need some help with a signature I am working on. The overall signature will comprise of several blocks pushed together to look like one larger image (see blank template below, I have already obtained permission from the person who did the original style to re-work and use it myself). What I'm wanting to do is to add a link on two of the blocks using an image that will change (the Lunar Herald cycle icon and the scroll stats banner), and I don't know how to do that. I am using Paint Shop Pro X2 (I have PS, but don't like to use it, so please don't suggest I use it).

The problem is that this forum doesn't support any BBcodes for background images or even tables, so you can't just put things in boxes. (Also, you obviously cannot just copy/paste images that get re-created by code logic whenever you look at it into a static image.)

The only thing you could do is to change the size of the blue bits so that the dynamic images you're putting in would *look* like they're part of that giant banner of yours.

 

There is also another Lunar cycler that you could try to fit in instead of the single egg:

It's not strictly what you're asking for, but if you have server space somewhere outside DC, you could look at creating a dynamic image. Basically you'd set up a script on your site that would re-generate an image every time your image URL is accessed, and return that newly generated image to whatever asked for it.

 

You'd have to set up either one giant script to pull together the appropriate lunar cycle image and the scroll stats image overlaid on your background, or two separate scripts for two separate dynamic images. One script is probably preferable for making the sig banner look prettier.

 

Your challenge with this is that I don't believe most free image upload sites, or upload sites in general, will let you do this since you're actually executing code. You'll need an actual website somewhere that allows code execution.

Thanks for the replies! As for the Lunar Heralds, I think I may try to make my own button of sorts (no rotating images or anything showing the current cycle though). And as for the code writing, that's way over my head xd.png I'll figure something out for the scroll stats/link, or maybe I'll just keep it outside of the signature area all together? idk yet happy.gif

Do Alt Vine x Alt Vine always breed Alts now? Or am I just (un)lucky?

 

This Pair has produced 3 Alts in a row when I need a regular Vine for a lineage...

I think you're just lucky.

 

My first thought was "I'll have it" but I already have a baby from that pair, which was surprising. tongue.gif

I am finding myself unable to get eggs onto hatcheries. I am not hidden with adults, scroll or otherwise.

Assuming your scrollname is the same as your forum name, I was able to load your scroll without issue on both EATW and AoND. Everything on your scroll is already posted on AoND, so presumably something loaded, even if it didn't show up for you. (Please note that I added nothing to EATW and didn't touch what was already on AoND. I only tested the ability to load your scroll.)

Is there a way I can view the cave time while browsing on mobile? On PC, there's that note in the corner of the screen that tells the time, and if you click on it, it has the moon phases listed etc., but I seem to be missing that whole thing entirely on my phone. Or am I just blind?

you can always just type out dragcave.net/help/time

 

or rather, go to Help > Using the site > Time Reference

but there's no 'direct' link, unless i'm also blind.

I managed to get it on AOND, Silvies it keeps saying non existing.

 

- finally functions. Thanks for aiding me everyone.
