Unique Egg Descriptions

Recommended Posts

Yes I am splitting the threads apart. One for Egg Descriptions and the other for Egg Images being shown

So, now that we have almost 200 Unique Dragons in the cave, I think some changes to the egg descriptions need to happen. The only two that truly need to be changed are the frills and horses since they are strictly in the same biome, but as someone has suggested in the other thread, horse eggs only have a single stripe on it and frills have just an orange splotch. They don't really match up to the text that is used to describe them as they would need more stripes/splotches on them. 

Thoughts?

The issue of Sunstones and Moonstone still remains. And, although the Moonstone egg actually resembles a glowing stone, the Sunstone egg looks more like a sparkly stone IMHO. Not glowy. Even adding a single word (blue/orange) to the description would help.

 

I remember that we used to have a thread about matching eggs to their descriptions, too. (Canopies, Pebbles, Vines, Greys...), but interest there died down once we had certain eggs changed that looked to much like other eggs. (*glares at old silver eggs*)

I still really support doing something, whether its descriptions or visible eggs. We have so many species now that the RNG punishment does nothing but cause frustration. Its not challenging and adds nothing to the game, imo. Its enough of a challenge waiting and hoping the egg you want will show up at all, no matter what rarity it is.

I agree with changing certain egg descriptions to match their eggs more closely - and to get rid of any confusion from the players. Adding images into the Cave would nix this suggestion for hunting, and I prefer Images over Description changes for hunting purposes. But! I do agree that descriptions should be changed regardless.

 

Perhaps changing the Frilled's egg description to:

Frilled_egg.pngThis green egg's bottom is encompassed by an orange mark.

And the Horse's egg description to:

Horse_egg.gifThis deep purple egg has a solo blue stripe.

And for Moonstones / Sunstones (adding a color descriptor):

Moonstone_egg.GIFThis light blue egg resembles a glowing stone.

Sunstone_egg.gifThis bight orange egg resembles a glowing stone.

 

Yeah, I thought of those in 30 seconds on sleep deprivation, but they're an idea.

I think the Sunstone and Moonstone names you have suggested are great for them. Not too sure about the horse description, can't we make it more, I don't know, horsey? Maybe something to do with galloping? riding? Not at all keen on the Frill description, but can't think of an alternative either!^_^

No idea; I am not creative enough to come up with something that fits. And, since we're talking about eggs, I'm not sure using a descriptor of the final adult stage would work for the Horse egg. This purple egg is surrounded by hoof prints. Honestly, I am so dumbfounded on descriptors (hence why I can never create a concept of my own, haha).

Why not just naming the colour of the markings? Like, strange orange markings, strange blue markings ...

I think the ideas of just adding a simple colour to the egg descriptions is a great one. It's still keeping in the spirit of the current descriptions, but making them exclusive at the same time.

A single color word sounds like a fine solution to me. Helps distinguish the eggs but still keeps it similar enough to punish impulse clicks.

That would be great as well.

Regarding this, I say you just only see one because you look only at one side of the egg - you don't know what its backside looks like :D

I would still like to see the descriptions tweaked as I still don't know if I'm getting a horse when I want a frill or a sunstone when I want a moonstone

Why would a horse come from an egg anyway its a mammal.

Horse dragons are very clearly hooved by their sprites, and they are not mammals.

 

Anyway, I really like this vs the image one. It just seems to fit the spirit/feel of dc more.
