Thank you! My progress is really slow, but I'm learning something new about breed hexing every time I open the game. Hexing a breed is a totally different animal from hexing a handful of petz.
Finally, Variation Groups
The last time I tried to make a variation group, I only failed terribly. This time, I got it to work somehow! Check it out, beaks now match feets.
After I finish shape variations and before I add more color variations, I need to fix the groups. This is how they're grouped right now. JUST KIDDING. Groups were literally the next thing I decided to work on.
"Don't worry, it's just paint but I do look redonk."
EDIT: Before I finally got around to fixing it, this was the grouping on 2nd gens.
Now, second gens seem to be inheriting colors properly but fuzziness and linez? Not so much.
This particular gen 2 also has a beak that does not match the feet. I'm debating whether this is an issue or not since I actually like the effect that can be achieved here.
Redid some of the groups and this is what I'm getting now. This is a very small sample though. I guess they're going to have to work like those highly varied show breeds that you have to breed tens of times to get the babies you want.
Since I'm done with the base colors anyway, I decided to go ahead and address the eyelids and added some new eye colors. I can't believe how much I'm dragging my feet on this breed, but getting a little bit done every day is moving it along at least.
I guess the next step is horns.
Anyway, we finally got an appointment to sign for and move into the house. So there might not be updates from me for a while after Tuesday since I don't know when we'll have the internet set up. Until then, I'll keep you all up to date on this breed. I really want to have these guys ready for you as soon as possible.
Thor: I did a bit of a clean up in the Adoptions board. If your adoptions are old (6 months is like the rule) feel free to close the thread and take any extra petz elsewhere
