I merged the melanism thread with this one, as it is a creature suggestion and thus belongs here. Feel free discussing the idea further.
"The Desolation of Smaug?" More like "The Desolation of Script."

Eee hyenas are on the list <3

Anyhow, I think there should be a sort mix between a saber-toothed cat, a tiger, and a hyena. Called, like, a Saber-Toothed Tiygan.

There are some creatures that this exists with but its up to the site if they want to add more creatures with this capability. I wouldn't be opposed to the idea thou.


You have it backwards :p They have Albino forms. (No pigment) We have no creatures with melanism. (Which pretty much turns them black).

The black Cervinus deer is actually melanistic. Glass wanted a normal version and an albino version. I then asked if I could make a melanistic version (and piebald) because it hadn't been done yet.

I really like oddities in nature and am all for creature variants myself.

Melanism, for those who don't know, is the polar opposite of albinism. Rather than producing no color pigment, a creature produces tons of it, turning themselves a very dark shade of their natural color, if not completely black.

If melanism already exists, I'd like to suggest it for the following creatures:

- Koi (albino koi would be cool, too!)
- Quetzalcoatls
- Dragon Turtles (again, albinos too!)

Anyone with me on this? :3

I would also suggest for both albino-ism and melanistic traits Ibex and Chupacabra since they don't have their own breeding thing where there are different versions of them, and as far as I know the Chupacabra doesn't really breed with anything else.

For just melanistic traits I would also suggest the Roc since that doesn't breed with anything else either and there is only the on version of it. And changing the coloring on already existing sprites shouldn't be that hard hopefully.

Getting a bit tired of the seals in the water shop. How about the next creature be an otter, sea turtle, sea snake, or puffer fish?

To quote the artist of the seals-
DarrkestDrow wrote:The water shop is the most recently added shop, give it time. Also, fish are not as popular as mammals...and imo are not as fun to sprite. (Not to mention the fact that there are those who have been complaining because of all the water type creatures being released lately).

Regardless of all that, have some patience.


Besides, it's only 2 varieties of seals, the other is a Dugong.

An eel would be an interesting addition, or something like the Lagiacrus from Monster hunter but different, like no legs or something. This is what it looks like:

I know we have Laviathens and the pearl wyrms, but this is just an idea for the shop. Something like the Lagicrus but with fins would be really cool. And Lagicrus shoots lighting from its mouth! <3 _ <3

As for fish or aquatic creatures that are more realistic, how about thresher shark or rough sagre.

You know what I'd love to see in the water shop? Or the stream, though they'd be more in-place at the water shop? Sea slugs and various nudibranchs. I believe they've been previously suggested, but the idea needs more backing. I mean, come on.



There you go. No lack of amazing species to choose from.

I like #2's the best. :yarly:
I'm now totally backing the nudibranchs idea. They look pretty darn cool.
Just came back to the world of the internet. Sorry for being gone for so long. Won't be active until Christmas break ends. At least.
What if all of life was a dungeon? And magic and paranormal stuff were glitches in the programming? You die, you go back to the beginning. But by then, they've already released an update.
