Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

So in the sort options I have this selected:

Legacy Breed Name (Cannot be reselected after switching)

 

How does this differ from regular breed sort and why can it no longer be used after switching it?

Legacy uses internal names rather than the actual name. Some dragons had internal names different from their actual names.

 

All halloween dragons are grouped together, all valentine names are grouped together, all christmas are grouped together, etc. Other examples are Water dragons being under L for lake. Storm dragons are under F for fog. Two-headed dragons were before A's because of the number 2. The zyumorphs are under D probably for dino zords and Sinomorph is under M probably for mega zord.

 

I made the mistake of switching the other day and totally forgot you can't go back to legacy. Now I gotta relearn how my scroll is sorted out. Haven't quite figured out why Sinii Krai dragons were near the beginning of the alphabet (I think under the B's) for legacy.

Still makes no sense in any terms that zyus sort before Dinos/Yoshis. Can someone explain ?

I'm guessing TJ just stuck some extra symbols in front of the Dinos to make sure they'd always sort after the real dragons. Same for chickens. Now, why yellow Dinos come before chickens is the REAL mystery... o___o

 

(TBH I wish holidays and subgroups were still divided out too)

That was my first thought, although papers/cheeses sort with dragons - but, I suppose they're unbreedable dragons, not unbreedable creatures.

 

The chickens in the middle of them seem funny, though. I'll go report that just in case. o.o

I think the creator said the name was Russian for "blue edge," maybe that's why?

ah.. didn't think of foreign language. Just threw it into Google translate.

 

Sinii Krai : Says Romanian detected. Gives me English: Sinia Krai. Put Sinia Krai through the translator. Says Bulgarian detected. Gives me English: The Blue End. Close enough. Mystery solved. lol.

After a quick glance at the encyclopedia, it looks like dinosaurs (and chickens) sort by scientific name - diplodocus, gallus, parasaurolophus, pterodactylus, stegosaurus, triceratops. That's why chickens appear in the middle of the dinosaurs. I suspect they sort at the end because they're in the encyclopedia under scientific names instead of breed names.

I have a Zyugroup; I just sorted it by breed and it goes Sino, Coast (pink), Desert (blue), Forest (um, whiteish wink.gif), Jungle (yellow), Alpine (grey), Volcano (red.)

 

I have no idea why laugh.gif

It's the order how the biomes are "numbered". If you go to a biome and look at the adress bar it says location/1 for coast, 2 for Desert etc. Also if you replace Alpine (location/5) with Mountain it's in alphapetical biome order.

The breeds with scientific names (e.g. Gallus gallus domesticus) have always (since the introduction of the encyclopedia, at least) sorted at the bottom, alphabetically by their scientific name.

same!

This happens for me sometimes, as drop is 5sec before 5min mark.

I've watched for several 5 min intervals and nothing's changed (except for sometimes someone picks up one egg) - I check for codes when I'm bored so I can usually see if the eggs have shuffled even if they're the same breed as before. This time they're not shuffling.

They are shuffling for me but 5 seconds before. unsure.gif

 

Edit: Now it didn't shuffle at all???

Sometimes it happens that people enter their email address in the wrong field upon registration. Not sure if TJ has already changed the registration form to disallow names like that, but existing names are not changed.

And they are probably hiding their scroll.

I use rainbow sort on my scroll and it appears that breeds aren't randomly mixed up anymore. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm hoping it sticks around.

I had reported that a while ago.

 

Whenever you notice weird things like that, be sure to report them so myself or another moderator can report it to TJ if he doesn't see first! (Although I guess this might have fallen under Suggestions.)

 

But apparently, the way color sort worked was that if two breeds read as having the same color, they sorted by date, which is why you sometimes got something like "red dragon - red dragon - flamingo dragon - red dragon - crimson flare - flamingo dragon - red dragon" or whatever. TJ said he was working on changing this, so it looks like he might be finished updating it. ^^

Was the way that Sunrise/Sunset eggs hatched changed?

 

I'm just curious because my "Sun" egg says Sunrise -- but can't it hatch into either? They still only have 6 hour hatching windows, and can be fogged so that they hatch into the right species, right?

Nope, they're just the same species, so they're on the same encyclopedia page, which means they get lumped together. There's no undesignated "sun dragon" species for while they're eggs. All eggs read sunrise, IIRC, but that'll change once it hatches - if necessary.

How many people actually enter the monthly raffles? Or do we have any numbers?

I'm pretty sure that is one of those questions that only TJ could answer.

Idk but I posted this as its own thread but the Scimitar-wing Wyverns aren't in the Encyclopedia and I don't know if a mod reported it yet

I see people here using "HM" a lot, I think it means CB Hybrid, but I'd like to know what it stands for, because all I can read it as is Hidden Machine.
