Change in creature names

Postby Morgaln » September 16th, 2013, 1:50:56 pm

Hello everyone,

as some of you might have noticed already, a lot of creatures had their names changed. This was necessary to make each species name unique, which will be needed for a new feature coming up soon.

In most cases, names have just got a descriptive addition, and often one that has been in use on the forum anyway. But in some cases, we had to change the original names a bit. We didn't do this lightly and gave the new names appropriate consideration before deciding on them. I hope they will meet your approval.

If you happen across a name that doesn't fit the creature at all (as in, a unicorn being called a gryphon or something like that), we probably made a mistake. In that case, please let us know asap so we can fix it.

Thank you for listening. You may start complaining now.

Either I was paying attention before or these creatures names have been changed:

-Misoc to Painted Misoc
-(Purple pond) koi to Amethyst Koi
-(Green) Dragon Turtle to Chlorophyte Dragon Turtle
-(Brown) Dragon Turtle to Phaeophyte Dragon Turtle
-(Red) Dragon Turtle to Rhodophyte Dragon Turtle
-(White) Duckits to Pekin Duckits
-(Grey) Duckits to Chinchilla Duckits
-(Gold) Duckits to Lop Duckits
-(Brown) Duckits to Rex Duckits
-(Black and white) Duckits to Dutch Duckits
-(Mallard) Duckits to Mallard Duckits

And there's a lot more but I'm not bothering to type them all out. XD Someone else can do that.

If you want to find them all, we had to change a total of 96 names. These were all creatures that shared their name with another creature, although a few have retained the original name as the "basic" version of that species.
