Make dark luminas breed black stripes

Recommended Posts

white stripe example

 

And yes I've checked both peaks of the lumina cycle, dark luminas have bred multiple white stripes and white stripes only despite logically breeding black stripes. It'd be cool if they could breed both colors as a reference to the way they breed both dark and light luminas (and to not shut out white stripe x dark lumina lineages), but black stripes make more sense than white stripes either way.

Support this, definitely - it would really be more logical for dark Lumina to breed black Stripes. I really hope this becomes a thing!

 

I can support what Shadowdrake says, as I've been helping with the dark Lumina x Stripe breeding and without exception, regardless of the timing in the Lumina cycle, only white Stripe offspring were produced (if they produced Stripes at all).

Sure. I'm not planning on doing any Striped x Dark Lumina-lineages, but I wouldn't mind this being implemented.

Support. I also support "backwards compatibility", they could randomly make either black or white Stripeds (like e.g. Swallowtails already do, with blue thrown in between as well).

Wait, what? How is it possible for Dark Luminas to breed white Stripes in the first place?

 

Full support for the change.

Dark Luminas also only give white Stripes? I thought it was weird to find that Moonstones and Boreals only give white rather than blue Stripes. I wonder what other breeds are messed up in that regard beyond these three.

 

Support.

Possibly because white is the default color. TJ has to set each species to breed the others. It used to happen a lot that new breeds would only give white at first. I think he finally put a code in to do it automatically, but that doesn't mean something can't get missed here or there.

I know this used to happen way back when, but it hasn't happened in a very long time (save for the Dark Luminas).

Hence my comment that it was changed to do so automatically. But the program apparently doesn't distinguish between the two versions so will need to be fixed manually.

Support. I like the idea that they could produce either black or white stripes, same as how they can breed either dark or light Luminas.

This makes a lot of sense, and I like the idea of letting them breed either white or black stripes so as not to ruin any ongoing projects. Support.

Or... make the stripe color depend on which lumina would be more likely to be bred. /slinks away from thread

This makes sense too. I never breed Luminas so I forgot it wasn't just random.

I support this. I also like the idea that what you can get might tie in with their moon cycle breeding ratios, however, I also understand if its more work than what one normally puts in with the stripe baby production. (But wouldn't it be fun to play around with time based dragon breedings like Sunset/Sunrise, etc.) But I do agree that it would be nice to get both Black and White from either Lumina as they are related. I also love when dragons have the ability to produce more than one specific color of Stripe (assuming they aren't necessarily a solid color to begin with and the creator/spriter only wants a certain color stripe). 

 

I love being able to breed stripes to other breeds and get some variety. I don't necessarily expect all four versions from every dragon (minus stripe to stripe breeding, which is super fun and awesome), but I always like to see what breeds out. I just think it makes people do more interesting things with breeding potential and projects. And not just checkers. You can do cool things with Stairs & Spirals with unique color designs that are far more interesting pattern wise.
