Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

It seems like I can no longer use lineage links of eggs still in the cave. I used to do that a lot to check whether a Dorsal or Ridgewing was an alt before I caught it, and it worked for me every time. Today I tried that several times and the site told me 'Page Not Found'. Is that the case for everyone else? Did TJ patch it up? If it's really been fixed and isn't just a glitch, there goes my little trick for catching alt Dorsals and Ridgewings :^(

I tried this a few days ago to see if a code has a l (L) or I (i) and it didn't work. Didn't know people used this to check for alts

Oh no 😧

I just checked, indeed it's been changed so that you can't check for alts >< Well there are going to be a lot more CB Purple Ridgewings and Purple Dorsals in AP I guess...

It's been like that for absolutely ages. It does make it fairer for all.

Maybe that is why I was able to pull two incuhatchable purple RWs out of the AP in one hunting session. ;)

Right-click the egg, copy the link, paste into notepad (you can set notepad to use a serif-style font) to look at your I's and l's.

Automated censors are stupid - it may find stuff in your message just because it's ignoring spaces. What is your message?

You are not supposed to put links in your trading message.  As such, I wonder if some behind the scenes tweaking has occurred to where you can no longer do that.  What happens if you try it without the link?

If links aren't allowed, then it could be the "http" or "https" part that is being blocked.

Do you mean the view page? Because I was talking about the lineage page, which has been working for me all along. I last used it 2-3 days ago.

If you upload image directly at forum, those images can be seen at following page -> https://forums.dragcave.net/attachments/

 

Is it possible to remove my attachments by my own? Maybe I don't have to worry about storage limit, but there still are limit...

 

You need to go to the post where you attached it and delete it there.

Nope. Has been requested though:

Random thing I just thought of: Why don't egg sprites show an artist's credit? All hatchlings/adults have the 'Art Copyright' line at the bottom of the page, but apparently none of the egg sprites do? Are artists not given credit for egg sprites? I searched the pinned topics in the DR and it doesn't specifically say anything about eggs not getting credit. Given how fancy/etc some of the egg sprites are in this game, it seems strange that credit wouldn't be given.

As far as I know, TJ did the first egg sprite and so all the other egg sprites are considered re-colours of his egg. Therefore, it was established not to give any credit.

I've been wondering that too. For like... Storm or Black Truffle, fair enough, it doesn't look like much. But it does seem weird that for instance the Nexus egg is "just a recolour" 😅

 

Edit: Have a question but didn't want to double-post.

What is "0 generation"? Do all Thuweds behave this way?

Thuweds behave strangely at times in lineage view, yes.  No idea why on that one, usually it's the dragons that are normally breed only.

If you breed two spinels together, do they ALWAYS produce green?

Currently, it seems that way.
