Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

While surfing the AP for interesting eggs, I came across a Frostbite egg.

 

I never really noticed it much until now (I zoomed up on my phone), but are frostbite eggs Silver eggs, except just recoloured slightly?

They sure are. I don't know who sprited either of the eggs, but I doubt it was the same person. Something like this should be reported to TJ or a mod.

 

Left is the Frostbite and right is the Silver:

Most egg shading follows the same template, unless the egg is particularly fancy or shiny/textured or has a different light source. If you brought up the shading for the black tip, balloon, black, canopy, cassare, flamingo, pink, gilded bloodscale, gold, pebble, ice, imp, magi, neglected, nhio, purple, red, royal blue, ridgewing, winter, seragamma, soulpeace, speckle throat, gray, water, or white, you'd probably find much the same. Not to mention the handful of eggs that would have similar but offset position shading. It's not something I'm worried about, personally. ^^

It's still in the spriting sticky, but the original spriting advice written by Dove actually lists the silver egg as the base DC shading for eggs, so I'm not surprised so many eggs use the template.

 

Now if, for example, someone took the frostbite swirly pattern and applied it to a new egg - that wouldn't be okay.

So with the spirit wards in enyclopedia, how do the second ones work? I take it they represent one o f the night "forms" (presumably the brightest one), but what is needed to unlock them? Do I need to observe 15 new adults I haven't previously observed during the night? If so must these 15 be "maximum" brightness or any of the intermediate brightness sprites too?

There are five different rows of sprites, each corresponding to one glow stage of the Spirit Ward adults. To unlock a row of sprites, you have to view 15 adults in the appropriate glow stage - so viewing 15 adults during s1 glow stage (fully dark) will only unlock the first row of sprites, viewing 15 adults during s5 glow stage (maximum glow) will only unlock the last row of sprites, and so on.

So there should be more than 2 rows, which I'm assuming will automatically unlock once I've seen those stages enough. Any ideas if these 15 have to be completely new adults for each stage or can I review the same 15?

Yep, there should be more than 2 rows. The rest will unlock as you view more Spirit Ward adults in the appropriate glow stages.

 

I'm not actually sure if you can reuse adults for the different glow stages. Logic suggests you need different adults, but I didn't experiment with that when I unlocked my own sprites.

If I recall correctly, TJ once mentioned that you cannot observe any given dragon a second time within a month - after that month, you're free to look at them again, starting another 1 month cooldown.

Another question comes to mind - did anything happen to the ratios of leetle trees dropping in the forest? I've probably seen ten in the last three days! If the scroll limit didn't exist, I'd have a forest by now. blink.gif

Going to take a wild guess and say that the new releases have reduced the catches of other breeds, which in theory makes them appear more often.

Does any one know if there is a difference between which dragons come out at night versus the day in the Cave? I remember that if you hover over the little moon/sun in the new Standard Cave Skin, it tells you only certain breeds are available during the night/day. Does anyone know which ones?

 

I mean I know that you can only get Sunset/Sunrises and Day/Night Glories at different times of the day, but I want to know if the Day/Night Cycle affects the ratios in the biomes as well.

- Like do you get more Nebulas, Bleeding Moons, and Moonstones at night, and more Sunsongs and Sunstones during the day? Or something like they?

I think that is referring to Day/nightglory drakes and sunrise/sunset dragons wink.gif

I have a problem with generated incubators!

 

DC site gives me this:

 

(url=http://dragcave.net/user/Helel)(img)http://incubators.dragcave.net/incubator_Helel.png(/img)(/url)

 

But this link doesn't show the picture, it should look like this instead:

those aren't the right codes. you want the code with the brackets [ ]

[ URL=http:// scroll link here ] [ IMG ] your image link here [/ IMG ] [/ URL ]

 

edit: i get the feeling i misunderstood your question! ohmy.gif

I believe the correct URL depends on your selection, as in, if you opted to actually upload your incubator to DC itself. If you don't, you'll have to upload your incubator elsewhere and use *that* URL.

I picked "upload to DC" and it gave me the link that don't work!

 

Try it for yourself, maybe I'm just missing something...

 

P.S. For some weird reason, when I post [ url=http://dragcave.net/user/Helel ][ img ]http://incubators.dragcave.net/incubator_Helel.png[ /img ][ /url ] on other site it shows my incubator for some time, and then it's stops showing it, I don't know how else to describe this.

Interesting question here....

 

I noticed a black tea of mine was getting too many views for it's time. I fogged it. 4 hours later, I go back to put one of my now ER Nebbie into the hatcheries, I notice that the black tea has gendered, even tho it was fogged! And when I opened up Silvi's Lair to put in my Nebbie, I saw the black tea was listed as fogged but still check-marked as active!!

 

So, apparently, while it was fogged, it was still receiving enough views to gender??? So what's the point in fogging then???

They don't need to be viewed to gender, as far as I know - only to turn into adults.

See but it WAS getting views while fogged. It was at something like 4000 when I fogged it, and when I saw it again, it was like 4500!! So it was still getting views while fogged at Silvi's Lair, enough to gender. That's what I was saying.

As far as I know Silvi's is the only hatcherie where eggs/hatchies didn't get removed automatically when you fog them. They don't get views anyway in this time.

 

Your Black Tea received enough stats to gender before you fogged it. Hatchies can still gender while fogged when they got enough views at a certain point of time.

Ok, then. Nevermind.

I had a strange thing happening on Silvi's, too. When I put my eggs in there earlier today, there was one egg/hatchie shown as fogged. However, I didn't have anything fogged on my scroll, and the egg/hatchie in question does not and did not belong to my scroll, as I couldn't view it when following the link.

Ashywolf and StormCaller - what browser are you using? Is it up to date? Have you tried disabling addons? Cleared cookies, restarted computer, restarted modem?

I've done the "usual" fixes. Windows 7 on Chrome. I've had no problems with other dragons.

 

I'm going to guess wildly it is something to do with the retroactive raised/observed stats. When it was added to the encyclopedia maybe it didn't run the check to see if it should fill in or not as it was completed the instant it was added to the encyclopedia.

@olympe: Sure you didn't trade or give it away earlier in its life?

(This would belong to Silvi's thread, by the way.)

What makes the images 'hop' up and then go back down in the Cave/Biomes when I refresh? It's maddening!

 

 

ETA: And how do I make it stop?
