TCB Grendel Pack   C3DS   Dragoler | 7/8/2018  1 comment  1  log in to like post  2

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!

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!

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.

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 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]

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. :)

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.

Inspired by their original designs, these Bloom Norns use new sprites (and genetics) to remove all bugs from the original download. The males have a bright purple color and the females are pink and red. For more information: See the readme. :)

If you're upgrading from the original Bloom Norns, make sure that you remove all Norn Slot P sprites in your C3/DS Images folder.

The original CFE edits by Vampess. These offer improved survival habits and memory over the original genomes, being able to remember more than one solution to a drive and remember individual creatures. In addition to better recognition of when something is out of reach.

The download currently lacks the egg pack with "mutable" genomes, since the is link broken on the archived site.

These are practically the same as the new 2017 genomes that I released some time ago. However, in this pack a bunch of mutation rates in some genes (appearance, facial expression, pigment) have returned to their original states. Also, none of the genomes are naturally resistant against any diseases.

The PS1 norns are a small set of genetic breeds which are based on the 2017 genome. Their appearances is based directly off of the appearances of norns in Creatures PS1 and Creatures Raised in Space, however due to Body Data issues (long necks) I have omitted bengal and bruin heads.

Whilst the image may show only male norns, the family adoption included in the zip will have female norns. This is because the PS1 games don't use any female norn sprites to represent females.

Sprites required:
C1toDS Horse Norn
C1toDS White-haired Pixie norn
C1toDS Banana Norn

This is a new version of the Wood Norn that gives the Wood Norns brighter colors. By default the egg agent installs a CFE genome, but there are 2017 genomes included in the zip file as well. Wood Norns remain energetic Creatures that enjoy playing with critters and bugs now and then. They're slightly more resistant to slapping than your average Creatures, but are more vulnerable to injuries gained from illnesses.

Use whatever version you prefer; I've included a folder with (new) sprites if you're upgrading from the original Wood Norns.

This is an overhaul of the 2017 CFF genomes that I released some time ago. Some changes were based on my own observations and others on comments that I read here on Creaturescaves. In the zip file you'll find new Creatures 3 and Docking Station starter parents, as well as two folders that either let you replace the genomes of the 2017 egg agents, or the genomes of the original C3/DS Creature breeds. Changes are below:

*The following changes were made to improve survivability:
- Norns will now feel lonely less quickly. However, lonely Norns should now also be more likely to look out for one another.
- 2017 Creatures will now only eat what is complementary to their highest hunger drive. They'll require a somewhat more varied diet and will overeat less than the original CFF Creatures. Overall hunger gain has also been increased slightly for every single breed.
- Norns will now only dance under the influence of the Sex Drive chemical. In older genomes this used to be the Arousal Potential chemical; this caused (mostly female) Creatures to practically dance at all times, which made travelling really long. Now they'll only dance near potential partners.
- Libido Lowerer has a somewhat faster half-life now, which means that breeding these Creatures is easier now.
- Each breed now has the "Underwater panic gene": This gene increases up drive as long as the (terrestrial) Creature remains in water for some time. They'll either start wanting to use an elevator to get out of the water (In the C3 Aquarium or Norngarden 4 for instance), or they'll get out of the water to use an elevator. (C3 Norn Terrarium or C3 Desert.) This gene first appeared in my earlier Frost Norns.
- Additional instincts were added, like retreating from beasts when scared or drinking potions when feeling sick - which is indicated by feeling hot or cold sometimes. Other instincts were added to add more flavour to particular species. For example Grendels like to hit things and ChiChi Norns (and derivatives) are interested in gadgets.

*The following changes were made to improve crossbreeding between 2017 Creatures, mainly the mall breeds:
- Every single breed now has a progesterone half life of 56: this prevents all Treehugger Norn crossbreeds from getting stuck pregnancies where they don't make enough progesterone to lay an egg.
- The overwhelming fear drive organ no longer reduces hunger. This prevents Creatures that are easy to scare from starving all the time. (Mainly Hardman Norn crossbreeds.)

There were some other changes as well that I can't precisely recall. I think they were mostly CFF things that I put back after accidentally removing them from the 2017 genomes. :$

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear about this, but you'll have to overwrite either the genomes of the original 2017 egg agents, or the genomes of the original Creatures 3 and Docking Station breeds.

If you have any questions, observations or remarks about these: Feel free to comment here or send me a message. You're also free to use any of these genomes for your own breed projects; you don't have to ask me for permission. :)
