Is it possible to add a Streamborn/Bred option? It would really help when you have a large number of things and you only need to sorts out the streamborns (or the other way around). I've got my eyes to break a record of SB frozen eggs and I have over 800 and I don't really wanna go just by hand.

It would make my day if there was a date option as well. Maybe not a list of all available dates from that tab but like you could choose out your chosen date and then if there were none it would say "no available creatures with that date" or something. It would really help when you're trying to sort out release date things from a big tab of things. Which I am also currently, cause I'm currently trying to go for a record for release date eggs for a certain species, and sorting by hand is annoyin.

I'm actually surprised there is no male/female option. I think it would prove quite beneficial for people (like myself) who have large groups of a single species and looking to divide them up into breeding pairs.

While I agree that a male/ female option would be beneficial, I'm not sure how it would help you make breeding pairs. Explain please?

Well, I suppose I used a poor choice of words...but to better explain, it would help to break up large groups of a species into equal amounts of males and females. Example: I sorted through a bunch of direwolves and learned I have far more males than females, so I removed the extra males, which leaves me with m/f pairs and no extras of a gender. I feel that the mass move option of sorting males and females would make this process much easier and quicker than having to go through one critter at a time.

Ok, lemme see if I understand.

you're not looking for so much as a "move all males" as a "choose equal number of males and females of species", or "choose only extra males of the species"?

If I can divide all the males and females up into two different tabs, I can quickly see which gender I have more of, get rid of the extras, then recombine the two tabs into one.

There may be another way to do this, but it's the way my brain worked it out. Having the m/f option for the mass move would save me an immense amount of time instead of me going through hundreds of critters and picking out a particular gender one by one, and it would also guarantee that I don't miss any of that gender whilst sorting.

Regarding using this option to make breeding pairs, it's a personal preference. I like to keep my critters in m/f pairs and it peeves me when I have more of one gender than another.

I would like a gender seperation aswell.
I have a ton of pets for sale and on occasion I get a large new suply. All my for sale males are in one tab and the females in another.
Not haing to go through that by hand would help a ton.
By hand there is always a chance of accidently dropping them in the wrong tab.

If you use chrome, use ctrl f.

For example if you are looking for Koi.
CTRL F using Male Koi would give you the total koi and using female koi would give you the amount of females you have. Subtract the two numbers and you know how many males you have. This would give you an idea of genders.

Gender separation in mass move would be a good idea if possible.

I agree that adding Male + Female for separation purposes would be great, and it would also be nice to be able to separate into Streamborn, Shopborn, Questborn, and Bred (as in 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen and so forth but just have one check mark for this area since generations can go very high).
