Lineage Project Creation Guide

I have an idea for my lineage/family, but am curious. Can you add in new CB and abandoned dragons that are not the starting pair?

Sure, why not? First, it would be your family idea, so you can allow any dragons you like. Second, if you allowed only one starting pair, you'd get inbred dragons wink.gif which most people prefer to avoid.

 

Samples for lineages with only one starting pair: https://dragcave.net/lineage/jMfd (even gen checker) or https://dragcave.net/lineage/bueLh (wave)

Ah. Thank you for posting this. I want to create 2 lineages, and this was just what I needed. But, how do I make those signature images that link to the lineage forum page?

Well, once you made the thread, you have its address in the address bar of your browser - that's the URL you need to link to.

Images can be created using plenty of tools, e.g. GIMP, MS Paint, pixlr.com and then saved to your computer as an image file, then uploaded somewhere.

For further signature coding (including info on where to upload such an image): https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showt...dpost&p=6672236

 

There may be a more detailed thread somewhere for creating such a signature (including tips for art) but I'm too sleepy to think of search terms to find it xd.png

Before posting a lineage project should we pm it to a mod first and if so which mod?

No, that isn't necessary. If you did have something that you wanted to clear with a mod, I believe it would be Earth Gurl or purpledragonclaw, as they are Site Discussion mods. List of mods can be found here.

Am I allowed to make a lineage based on a show or song? Use names/lyrics as names for dragons and the like?

I don't know if this has already been done, but i've sorted all the dragon tiles into a spreadsheet in case anyone would like to make their own mock-ups quickly.

To use it, simply copy and paste it into MS paint and C+shift, V+shift the dragons you'd like to use into one of the template below.

Might want to add that the spreadsheet is organised (in rows:)

1.) - 4). Westerns (1+2 = breeds with sexual dimorphism, 3 = Westerns with over two sprites, 4 = Westerns with only one sprite)

5.) Wyverns

6.) - 7.) Rares (or, at least, what I consider rare.)

8.) Easterns

9.) Traditional Drakes

10.) A mixture of Lindwurms, Amphipteres and Leviathans (since I thought these groups were too small to have their own rows)

11.) Two-headeds

12.) Drakes

13.) Pygmies

14.) Alts/hybrids

15.-17.) Holidays (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine.)

16.) - 19.) Holiday Spriter Alts (Valentine, Christmas, Halloween.)

20.) Zombies (in case you're going to make a dead-line)

21.) Prize/Shimmers w/ alts

 

Let me know if it can be improved in any way! Two spriter alts are missing so any help in finding those would be appreciated, as well!
