DC Moon Watch and Lunar Herald Theories

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you like them! I tried to make them tiny and accessible.

 

Also, just added some minor updates to the opening posts, including more terms, specifically the different names for the Lunar Herald eggs. Do I have them all? Or am I missing any of the commonly used names for the Lunar eggs?

 

I think I'll add the charts to the opening posts once everything is confirmed.

 

Edit: typos and stuff.

So happy that this thread continues to post Lunar Herald news. biggrin.gif

Shokomon, I really like your diagrams, both of them, never mind the impossible overlaps.

Eggs still silver, btw.

We are expecting in a phase change tonight (09/29/15) at 8PM EST/DC:

 

Aurax (Gold Moon): Waning Gibbous No change. Aurax is expected to stay more than 50% illuminated!

Cirion (Blue Moon): Waning Gibbous --> Waning Crescent Cirion is expected to be less than 50% illuminated!

Eggs are expected to shift from silver to a new color!

Cave Lunar Herald Eggs are expected to be Gold.

Bred Lunar Herald Eggs need to be confirmed, but are expected to be Gold.

 

Please help us confirm this!

OH! Perfect! Thank you!! And that sucks to here about the rejection. Hopefully, you can get some replacement CBs.

 

And For Tracking:

Hello everyone!!

We are expecting in a phase change tonight (10/03/15) at 8PM EST/DC:

 

Aurax (Gold Moon): Waning Gibbous --> Waning Crescent Aurax is expected to become less than 50% illuminated!

Cirion (Blue Moon): Waning Crescent --> New Moon Cirion is expected to stay less than 50% illuminated, specifically 0% illuminated!

Eggs are expected to shift from Gold to a new color!

Cave Lunar Herald Eggs are expected to be Bronze.

Bred Lunar Herald Eggs need to be confirmed, but are expected to be Bronze.

This phase shift will confirm whether or not Aurax's Waning Gibbous phases lasts 7 days (which is what we currently predict.)

 

Please help us confirm this!

 

I think once we have this information, everything will be confirmed!

 

... I guess technically the period where Aurax is WaNing Crescent and Cirion is WaXing Crescent is unconfirmed because during that time in the release, the Time reference page was displaying the wrong thing for Cirion. However, we have both bronze cave and bred eggs from that time, and TJ provided a correctional chart with the appropriate phases for that time. So, we have enough information to accurately say what eggs are produced under the aforementioned phases.

 

Everything will soon be confirmed. Thank you everyone! I wonder if this thread will continue after we are done. I guess people could always come here to ask what egg will produced when...

 

------

Edit: I finally finished making the buttons and banners I been wanting to make for this thread! thoughwemightnotneedthemanymore Because they are on photobucket, they are unfortunately huge links. I may upload them to tiny link later, but I'm too lazy right now.

 

Here are the buttons!! One for each Lunar Herald Egg, and the Question mark egg for those who can't decide between them:

Thank you for both the buttons and the (smaller) banners!!

You are welcome! I'm glad you like the banners/buttons.

 

I'm going to make another table of the official pattern of the eggs, but as for the calendar, it would be nice if we could have some automated image or posts that updates on what eggs are coming as soon as the phase change. Unfortunately, I don't know how to code that, so...tables and charts for now.

 

Also, People are free to upload the banners/buttons elsewhere to make the link smaller. Just be sure to link back here!

After talking with my (coder) daughter I think having an image that updated automatically in our sigs would require something coded from TJ, which I feel he's unlikely to do.

 

I may make images for my sig and update them by hand. I don't know though, that's a lot of bother. Mille's chart works so nicely...

This is why i think just pinning the chart would be better. Also because I'd like to know days/weeks ahead of time what color they'll be, rather than just what's currently appearing. That way we can plan our lineage work to leave slots open on specific dates, rather than having to log on and check each day (which I know many players don't).

After talking with my (coder) daughter I think having an image that updated automatically in our sigs would require something coded from TJ, which I feel he's unlikely to do.

As long as we're confident of the way the moons change, we can do it without an API. Here's the logic in PHP:

 

<?php

// -- settings ----------------------------------------------------------------

   // work in Dragon Cave timezone:
   date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York');

   // day before first time moons were observed to be full/full:
   $cycleStart = strtotime('2015-09-25 20:00:00');

   // length of a cycle (going from full/full back to full/full):
   $cycleLengthInDays = 32;

   // colours of a half cycle:
   $uniqueColours = array(
       'silver / white / full',
       'gold / aurax',
       'bronze / dark / new',
       'blue / indigo / cirion',
   );

// -- calculable settings -----------------------------------------------------

   // length of a cycle (going from full/full back to full/full):
   $cycleLengthInSeconds = (3600 * 24 * $cycleLengthInDays);

   // colours of a full cycle:
   $segmentColours = array_merge(
       $uniqueColours,
       array_reverse($uniqueColours)
   );

   // how long a colour reigns:
   $lengthOfSegmentInSeconds = (int) ($cycleLengthInSeconds / count($segmentColours));

// -- script ------------------------------------------------------------------

   // how many seconds have passed since we started paying attention?:
   $secondsSinceCycleStart = time() - $cycleStart;

   // how far into a cycle does that bring us? (ignoring DST):
   $secondsIntoCycle = $secondsSinceCycleStart % $cycleLengthInSeconds;

   echo 'We are ' . round(($secondsIntoCycle / 3600) / 24, 2) . ' days into a '
       . $cycleLengthInDays . ' day cycle.<br /><br />';

   // which segment are we in?
   $segment = (int) ($secondsIntoCycle / $lengthOfSegmentInSeconds);

   // colour of the segment:
   $currentColour = $segmentColours[$segment];

   echo 'Currently dropping: <strong>' . $currentColour . '</strong>';

 

Can be viewed here.

 

(I could also pop out an image generator. I probably will, but give me some time.)

Turns out 75% of the remaining work was getting the extension to be .png so this forum doesn't throw a hissy fit. rolleyes.gif *chuckles*

Yes, that's exactly what I had in mind. Wonderful! If I can get over this stupid cold so I have some energy I'll try to work up some fancier images, though these work very nicely. You don't want them to be too complicated.

Just a heads-up, I adjusted the text-output script so you can pass a parameter:

 

http://leviathan.thorngale.net/lunar-heral...-10-31+19:00:00

 

That'll tell you what's dropping on the 31st of October 2015, 19:00 (= 7 PM) cave time.

 

http://leviathan.thorngale.net/lunar-heral...-10-31+20:00:00

 

That'll tell you what's dropping on the 31st of October 2015, 20:00 (= 8 PM) cave time.

 

And so on. The parameter's always interpreted as cave time. So if you want to know what'll drop on your birthday, you can now check. (My birthday next year will be dropping silvers all day in my timezone, apparently, which aligns with what Millie's calendar says.)

 

Please let me know if that ever gives you a known wrong answer. The script has not been rigorously tested. It could have any number of subtle bugs in it.

Could the image or that blank site perchance also say something like

Indigo starts in 4 days 10 hours

Golden starts in 12 days 10 hours

Silver starts in 16 days 10 hours

if Bronze is currently dropping, and so on?

 

Thanks for doing this - I cannot wrap my head around php to accomplish this xd.png

Hmm, that does sound useful. I'll see if I can weasel that in sometime over the course of the day. (If it's not here by the end of the day, pester me again next week, it means I got sucked into writing. user posted image)

This is why i think just pinning the chart would be better. Also because I'd like to know days/weeks ahead of time what color they'll be, rather than just what's currently appearing. That way we can plan our lineage work to leave slots open on specific dates, rather than having to log on and check each day (which I know many players don't).

I am glad so many people are finding the calendar useful! biggrin.gif

 

In regards to having it pinned, Ruby said TJ doesn't like a whole bunch of things pinned as it starts to clutter the forums after a while, so that probably isn't an option unless the mods can see the demand for it is high.

 

The DragCave Wikia page for Lunar Heralds has included with permission a link to the calendar, and I will try to keep a link in my signature. I could also create a button for people to put in their own signatures if that would be helpful?
