TCB Draconian Norns   C3DS   Dragoler | 2/28/2019  1 comment  1  log in to like post  8

typeGenetics Only
Draconian Norns, converted to the TCB genome. Just like the originals they are long lived, slow aging carnivores who are extremely fragile while young but tough as adults. They start out eating bugs and sometimes pests (though stingers are risky for babies) then may transition onto critters as they get older. Although this breed is resistant to spikes in temperature, they are very sensitive to the cold, so be sure to set up Heatlamps and Steam Rocks if needed!
Due to the social nature of this breed, a new brain tract has been added to make colony life more peaceful.

Also included are alternate sprites that give the Draconian Norns wyvern-like wings, because C3/DS was sorely lacking in wyverns!
C12DS TWB/TCB Conversions   C3DS   Dragoler | 1/28/2019  3 comments  3  log in to like post  2

typeGenetics Only
Conversions of all C12DS breeds into the TWB and TCB genome bases. All breeds with the exception of the Dodgy Norns have been given extended lifespans to be more inline with their C1 counterparts. C1 Grendels are now also the mean little gremlins that they should have always been! (or maybe they're just misunderstood?)

The pack comes with egg agents and optional replacers that work with the C1 hatchery and Grendel mother, no sprites are included.
Contained are the following breeds:

- Banana Norns
- White Haired Pixie Norns
- Horse Norns
- Purple Mountain Norns
- Forest Norns
- Ron Norns
- Santa Norns
- Dodgy Norns
- C1 Grendels
TWB/TCB Version 2.5   C3DS   Dragoler | 1/20/2019  9 comments  9  log in to like post  5

typeGenetics + Sprites
Bug fixes, improvements, re-balancing!

So what are the TWB/TCB genomes?
The TWB/TCB genomes aim to expand upon the biology of Creatures by adding an internal body temperature, better sensitivity to the environment and a number of other additions including an overhauled immune system, fixed hunger system and breath holding ability. More in-depth information can be found here and here.

What has changed in version 2.5?
* The genomes are now more expressive. Creatures will look sad when they start to starve, allowing players to tell at a glance if their Norns need any help from them.
* Creatures will regain their confidence after going through a door, so no more door spamming when fleeing from Grendels (this sadly will not prevent full Norn stupidity.)
* Improved resilience! All Creatures get a small improvement to their wound healing abilities, but aggressive breeds such as Hardman Norns and Banshee Grendels get a particularly large boost.
* Portal pushing instincts have been strengthened, ready for use with the Albian Warp.
* More tweaks to reduce the annoying clumping behavior.
* A small brain edit has been added which reduces the aversion Creatures feel towards eating things that they cannot smell. Creatures should now have no problem eating things such as potions, manky, bugs, critters, animal eggs and detritus, though they will still favor more stimulating meals.
* In addition to the above edit, the Toxic Norns have been re-balanced to require detritus in their diets, as they should now continue to eat it throughout their lives.
* General bug fixes.

Included in this pack are all official breeds plus:
- Basilisk Norns
- Uglee Grendels
- Carna Norns (sprites and concept by Papubuntu)
- TWB Coffee Norns
- Honey Badger Norns
- Thistlefern Norns
- Urchin Ettins
Colortrue Evo Norns   C3DS   c1anddsaddict | 12/6/2018  1 comment  1  log in to like post  2

Released for the 2015 CCSF, these creatures have the standard evo genome but with the colortrue edits applied. These creatures have different colors. I included the colors of the rainbow along with black, white, grey, and 128-across-the-board unpigmented.

Inside the zip, you'll find several creatures files: one male and one female for each variety. You'll also find several genetics files you can use to hatch more. Alternatively, they are all compatible with Ylukyun's baby machine gun, so you could use that for a quick and easy color explosion in your world

These are the Delft Norns, but with wings!

This is a starter pair, so you might need to be careful when importing these to make sure they breed.

Requires Bengal and Zebra Sprites. Also requires the Bengal Wingy sprite mod to be installed in Norn slot B - see the website link for details.
There can be a problem with the normal Civet norns if the Bengal Wingies are installed.Civets don't come with their own body data but use body data from the next lowest slot.Which is the Bengal Wingies.To avoid "flying" civet arms.Install the Civet Wingies or download AngelNekos "Original Civet Body Data".

The BlackBerry norns were originally called "Black and Tan" norns.It was a "goodbye present to the community" from MK-Grendel before he had left the community.The sprites were'nt finished,but sprites for baby and youth existed.Alien decided to add the missing stages under his project.
TCB Grendel Pack   C3DS   Dragoler | 7/8/2018  3 comments  3  log in to like post  3

typeGenetics Only
A pack containing the two official Grendel breeds updated to the TCB genome (an accompaniment of the TWB genome with a few changes + fixes) along with a third new breed - Uglee Grendels!

Uglee Grendels use the same sprites as Basilisk Norns, and unlike their more aggressive relatives don't go out actively seeking a fight; but Hardman Norns beware, although Uglees don't start fights, they are more than willing to finish them!

Due to the cold blooded nature of these breeds, it's important to have the C3 weather patch before using them on the Ark, as vanilla C3 is much too cold for them!
Basilisk Norns   C3DS   Dragoler | 7/1/2018  3 comments  3  log in to like post  5

typeGenetics + Sprites
The Wrong Banshee has finally decided to sequence the genome of her faithful assistant 'Drascel', and is releasing the blueprints for any Shee or Banshee to enjoy!

Though they appear fearsome, the "Basilisks" as she calls them (she really doesn't know anything about Basilisks, other than the fact they're big reptiles and... like to bask? I mean, it's in the name right? Bask-ilisks?) are actually quite docile and have exceptionally thick hides. They hardly bat an eye at the assaults of Grendels or other aggressive breeds, and in fact cannot feel pain at all. It is perhaps ironic then, that when exposed to positive interaction these Creatures react with fear and will often run away from their "attackers" as though their very lives were threatened... by a mere kisspop on the cheek!

Other idiosyncrasies of the breed stem from their origin - the splicing together of an Ettin, an uglee and a tea leaf. Genetically they are most similar to Ettins with a lack of a fight-or-flight drive, an inability to feel heat and a particular love for gadgets. This coupled with their uglee genes make them very adapted to the desert.

Other traits from the uglee include an exceptionally long lifespan, a penchant for animal eggs and cold-blooded anatomy. Being cold blooded, Basilisks have a slowed metabolism and are very sensitive to the temperature of their surroundings. For best care, it's advised to place a heatlamp (agent included, coding by Pilla) somewhere close by and set it to a toasty 8 or 9 along with the familiar scent of the Ettin desert.

The tea leaf is an oddity, but this is where the Basilisks get their scent from! It has also imbued a couple of odd quirks into them such as tiny roots at the bottom of their feet, and chloroplasts under their scales. Their ability to photosynthesize is rather minimal, but it does allow for a small boost if there's enough water around.

Breeding of these Creatures is difficult, but possible. Basilisks will only start to become interested in each other in the later stages of their lives, and even then might not know quite what to do. Crossbreeding is also possible, but comes with a lot of risks. If crossbreeding is attempted, it's best to use TWBs as they are genetically the closest to these Creatures.

Now without further ado, please enjoy!

The aliens from creatures village now for your C3DS worlds!

They are generic desert ettins gene wise; exept they should live longer
The female is the purplish gray, the green is the male

The zip includes their egg agent and a read me

Thanks to Pilla and Grendel Man for helping me make these guys work!

(if anyone wants to create the baby/child, adolescent/youth and old/ancient sprites, please contact me!)

This is for all you fellow norn torturers out there! Here's some norns that actually like getting slapped around. They have a very... interesting reaction to getting hit. Being hit or hitting other norns will make them very friendly. Handy for when you have some stubborn norns you want to breed, just give 'em a slap. Also, they have a nice pretty pelt, and can take a lot more damage than a regular norn.

This is my first genetic breed. Enjoy.
Chichettin Norn   C3DS   Arnout | 3/27/2018  2 comments  2  log in to like post  5

typeGenetics Only
The tailless Chichettin Norns are a new, genetic Norn breed that is based on the 2017-m ChiChi genome. Besides being ordinary ChiChi Norns, they have some quirks that are also present in Ettins, Grendels and other Norn breeds.

- The boredom drive is higher. When bored, they'll primarily seek toys. If there's no toys around, they'll seek gadgets and machinery instead. However, Chichettin Norns don't hoard gadgets like Ettins do.
- Similar to Ettins, these Norns reach maturity quickly. They live as long as any other Norn, though.
- Chichettin Norns get lonely rather quickly and are more likely to seek one another out.
- They're resistant to histamine A and histamine B.
- Females have longer pregnancies so that they have enough time to get home before they lay their eggs.
- These Norns aren't scared of Grendels. They might even try to hit Grendels that bother them.
Erigizian Norns   C3DS   fuzzlet | 2/23/2018  comment  log in to like post  4

typeGenetics Only
Erigizian Norns are my first genetic breed, so I hope you like them! Here's some of their features:

- They can and will eat critters and detritus in addition to the usual food, fruit and seeds.
- Detritus gives a little alcohol when eaten, but not enough to last in the system for ages.
- Critters give some adrenaline when eaten.
- Fever toxin produces more hotness thanks to their thick pelts.
- The presence of Grendels makes them very angry, and they will attempt to hit them when they are angry. They are capable of holding their own against a full grown Jungle Grendel, but will try to retreat if they take too much damage.
- They are capable of sustaining more wounds before dying.
- They are slightly more prone to anger and violence than other norns.
- They use Bruin Norn and Gargoyle Norn sprites.
- They use CFE genetics.

The zip file contains an egg agent and a starter pair!
EDIT: The egg agent should be functional now! The egg glyphs are incredibly ugly and an error gets pulled up at first, but that error fixes itself (for me, at least) and the agent itself works as it should!

An entirely new Norn Breed which is basically a perfect mix between ChiChi Norns and Bondi Norns. They also have a few additional genetic features, which I'll keep as a secret for now. [nsmirk]

Nimbus Norn   C3DS   Arnout | 2/20/2018  4 comments  4  log in to like post  10

The Nimbus Norns are a new breed of Norn which is inspired by clouds. They sleep a lot and (similar to molecules of water) like to cling together.
Their designs are somewhat based on a Norn Breed that's been up for download since forever, but which never had its sprites finished (or cleaned up or something). The Nimbus Norns use entirely new sprites, however.

For more information: See the readme. :)
Remastered Wood Norn   C3DS   Arnout | 2/20/2018  comment  log in to like post  3

Here is yet another version of the Wood Norns. :$

Similar to the Red Wood Norns, these use an entirely new set of sprites to remove all hair/ear clipping bugs. However, these should have the same colors as the first Wood Norns that were released during the CCSF, some years ago. See the readme for more information. :)

If you're planning to upgrade from one of the other versions, make sure that you go into your Images folder and that you remove all sprites of Norn Slot Q.
