Lineage Ruler Counting Strangely

Recommended Posts

Over on the Thuwed thread in breeding, we've noticed a number of dragons where the first visible generation in their lineage displays as a 2 or 0 rather than a 1. Even stranger is that sometimes two different dragons descended from the same ancestor will have different numbers displayed for that ancestor's generation. I am not sure if TJ is aware of this, and it does seem to be limited to lineages with his dragons, but it may be worth looking into.

 

Here are all of the examples of this I can find on my scroll, others have more examples but I don't want to link their dragons.

My 2G Striped River displays as generations 0 and 1 - http://dragcave.net/lineage/1HSvr

A 4G Vine starts counting at 2 instead of 1 - http://dragcave.net/lineage/r50mc

A Green starting at 2 - http://dragcave.net/lineage/ZLqik

Waterhorse that displays a 0 - http://dragcave.net/lineage/Ccckr

Relative of the above Waterhorse that displays correctly, possibly due to different lineage shape - http://dragcave.net/lineage/z3l3t

 

I have a couple others that display gens 2-13 but they have other ancestors in the 2 row that are not CB, so I excluded those ones.

 

 

Our belief is that it has to do with dragons that are supposed to be breed-only being CB, although this theory doesn't explain the Striped River's lineage. That one could be because of the father being a Gemshard, which has multiple forms, even though CB Gemshards can be blue.

Two of my second gens show as gen 1 with the CBs as zero.

The alt black x magi shows as a gen 3 with parents being gen 2 (Is that because the black is an alt? Would be interesting to see what HM alts look like.)

 

Gen 3s are mostly correct but one is listed as gen 4

Quoting myself from the Thuwed thread:

Gen 0? http://dragcave.net/lineage/9C1GJ

 

And here, my 2nd gen becomes a gen 1 http://dragcave.net/lineage/kYppo But it has to be a gen 2 in this lineage http://dragcave.net/lineage/loI1W

 

So, I thought maybe an all-Thuwed base lineage would start with gen 0, but it doesn't. http://dragcave.net/lineage/GaTcB  blink.gif

 

And here is another odd one. In this lineage http://dragcave.net/lineage/QXm1f all the CBs become 2nd gens because of Ekxoh Tuhb Whood Thuwed!

 

I think it is kind of fun that TJ's dragons are different, actually, but it does make no sense.

I did ask about this but haven't received an answer or submitted an official report. I can make a report tonight.

Another strange one: https://dragcave.net/lineage/OY5Q shows the Thuwed pair as gen 1 but if you click on the 2nd gen Thuwed dad there his lineage starts with 0. He's listed as gen 1.

 

I didn't list the 2nd gen Thuwed directly as he's not mine.

 

Yet, when you look at the lineage for https://dragcave.net/lineage/LeYv, the first generation is listed as gen 2. If you'll notice, the above 3rd gen is part of this ones lineage.

 

So, I know you probably don't really need more examples but this has the same dragons from TJ showing three different generation numbers.

TJ is aware. It should eventually get fixed and be more uniform. ^^

I know this is an older thread, but I thought I'd ask: Is there any news on this?

I've a Holly that has the same problem and during the holidays I've noticed other's dragons that have this problem as well.

TJ said that it is because some of his dragons, peculiarly "CB" alts, are actually not CB and have their parents removed from the system somehow. (because he's TJ and can do that) Ekxoh Tuhb Whood Thuwed was named specifically in his post.

 

He also said he was working fixing them so they would not fluxuate so much, so I assume he just hasn't managed to find time to do it yet.

 

 

Edit: found where he said Ekxoh Tuhb is a second gen, https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showt...0entry9272736

 

Still looking for post saying he's working on it. because I apparently have nothing better to do than troll the forums for month old posts.... rolleyes.gif

I noticed this glitch when looking at a particular EG dragon that's in the Book of Records.

I narrowed down which dragon it was causing the discrepancy and found this:

 

https://dragcave.net/lineage/1Qmh - displays as 3G

https://dragcave.net/lineage/KTHB - displays as CB

https://dragcave.net/lineage/vjHr - displays as CB

 

It would be less weird if the dragons who have had their parents wiped displayed as 2G in their own lineage view rather than as CB.

Not sure if he ever confirmed publicly, but my post was from when I got his private word. It wasn't something he was currently working on, just something he was aware he needed to go clean up. ^^

Yes, it's the norm that TJ's breed-only CBs aren't actually CBs and displayed accordingly. The 0 gen thing is weird, though. *blink* Maybe because these dragons weren't actually caught, but, well, created? Like Adam and Eve from the Bible? wink.gif
