Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

So for holidays... I see there are tons of different dragons from different years on the list for holidays.

 

Do they all come back. or just new ones? And is it cave hunting or some kind of event since there are badges for it?

 

Not sure how these work anymore and I'm a little confused. People are talking about prepping and I wonder if I should do something similar but I don't really know what I'm doing.

Pumpkins (2009), Black Marrows (2010), Shadow Walkers (2011), Cavern Lurkers (2012), Graves (2013), Caligenes (2014), Desipises (2015), Witchlights (2016) and Omen Wyrms (2017) will *probably* be available in the Halloween biome. Vampires (2008) won't. A new breed will drop on 31st of October in all regular biomes.

 

There is usually an event that has nothing to do with the usual cave business of breeding, catching and trading. Participating in this event usually gets you a badge.

 

Preparations typically involve finding mates with specific lineages so that during the one week of holiday breeding (and catching), the next holiday generation can be created.

E.g. I got this: https://dragcave.net/lineage/dYdCR as a mate for this: https://dragcave.net/lineage/xawWP so that I can breed a 3rd gen checkered Shadow Walker next week.

Also, people are already negotiating with other players for specific bred Halloweens, since the breeding period is so short which means wasting time waiting for people to respond to messages is something you'd want to minimize by doing it *before* that week.

 

And of course, there is plenty of killing going on these days to prepare for the 31st as that is the day when trying to revive dead dragons has the highest chance of resulting in an Undead instead.

I see! Thank you for answering my questions again!

2 quick questions.

 

1. If a fogged hatchie dies ungendered, and it successfully revives as a Zombie on the 31st, it should insta-freeze as ungendered still, yes?

I'm truly hoping so as this year I got lucky and a lot of my dead hatchies stayed ungendered.

 

2. If they revive successfully, they insta-freeze and take up no slots, correct? 

 

Thanks!

I think I'm having issues with my scroll sort order? I want to have the eggs and hatchlings on top, then two dragons who are special to me, and then have all my other dragons in order of date (the default) but whenever I do this, new eggs I get are put on top of the other eggs which throws off the order they are supposed to be in (usually new eggs go to the bottom of the egg/hatchling section)

does anyone know how to fix this?

Yes and Yes.  but they need a very low view count to not gender.  (it's easier to freeze and kill ungendered ones. It can be done, but it's really hard to hatch them without getting too many views.)

The past few years it's been tough to keep them ungendered, I agree. This year though more then half so far (8 or so) have died ungendered while fogballs. I'm definitely not complaining. 😂 As long as they stay that way..  :)

Is it just me or is there a general problem with the Sort function atm? I get a "RIP - An error has occurred." with all three sort options (Firefox).

By the way, within the Groups, the sorting works properly, so it is just the scroll-wide sort function which is affected.

With the new temporary biome, will eggs from each year be equally as likely to come up? Or will older dragons (say, a Pumpkin) be rarer than a newer dragon? I assume that people will snatch up older dragons faster, but will they all appear at roughly the same rate?

Is there a problem if my husband wants play dragcave at the same time as me on the same ISP on a different device? He's got his own scroll and is getting back into playing after several years. 

 

Thanks!

If I remember correctly when this new holiday biome first appeared there was some issue with some breeds being very scarce, but then I believe that was fixed or tweaked. The real issue, that I've seen, is that newer breeds will tend to sit in the biome longer without anyone picking them up. Either because a lot of current players were around for the original release and already have all they want (or for Valentines and Christmas people already have the 2-cavebred limit, which Halloween doesn't have). So we have the issue of older breeds being grabbed faster as well as newer breeds blocking the biome.(Hint, it seemed to get a little easier to hunt the older ones a day or two into it because by that point a lot of people had already grabbed enough to get egglocked.)

If I've read the Terms and Conditions properly (and that was just a few days ago, just for kicks), it's perfectly okay :) As long as you both stay on your own scrolls and there's no irregular activity (such as one-side gifting a few too many times), there's no problem at all!

 

I'll quote the FAQ:

Q: Can two different people have scrolls on the same computer/IP?

A: Yes, as long as they are different people. There are many cases of siblings, parents and children, etc, having scrolls on the same IP. The same person having multiple scrolls is not allowed. As long as each person sticks to their own scroll, everyone should be fine. You do not need to PM TJ or a mod to let them know.

I had, a few weeks ago, a successful revive on a fog-died Wyrm hatchling. When it revived, it was NO insta-freeze. :( Instead it insta-grew up into an adult. It was a gendered hatchie though.

Did it turn into zombie adult? Or did you just had successful revive in the sence you brought dead hatchie back to live as normal hatchie?

If you revive and message is something went wrong and you have now zombie, then it should be instafreeze

Successful revive for me is: comes back from the dead in its old glory xD Not zombiefied.

Yes my Zombie-turned hatchies stay zombie hatchies. But that Xeno hatchie grew into an adult, after being re-awakened.

Question about Zombies and names . . . If a named would-be zombie disintegrates, is the name up for grabs again?

No. Un-name them before you kill them. You can re-name them when it's alive again, in whichever form.

(Dead dragons don't get deleted from the database anymore - at least adults. That means their name will also stay.)

I suggest naming the would-be zombies something you want on a dead dragon. I name mine "..... Ghost", so if they end up dead and with no option of renaming, they have a fitting name that I specifically chose for that result. If they end up revived or zombified, I rename them accordingly.

😲Ooh.  Oops.  Okay, I'll remember that.

Two little questions here, if they have been already answered I apologize but I currently don't have enough free time to read through several (not even a few) pages, so yeah, sorry if you already answered this.

 

1- When exactly does the new/special biome for CB Halloweens open?

2- Can I link a pic on my sig to a group I made on my scroll? Been wanting to do this for a while but haven't done because I'm not sure if its against the rules or something.

1- We don't actually know for sure if the special holiday biome will be returning, but if it does it will probably show up when Halloween breeding starts, which is normally the 25th. 

2- Plenty of people have links to scroll-groups in their sig, I'm assuming a pic linking to one would be fine as well.
