authorAlien (Sprites), NornenMeister (Sounds, Genetics)
This breed was originally planned and started to be created by NornenMeister but while going into retirement for a while, he decided to cancel the project. So Alien finished this breed in the frame of her Pimp my Breed action with a brand new sprite concept and with the Original genetic files and sound files from NornenMeister. Opera Ettins have new voices based on opera sounds. Male looks a bit like the "Phantom of the Opera" and the female got a somewhat more glamourous costume with stars in her hair. Maybe to attempt to be a Queen of the Night?

Butterflyfish+Florafish Norns   C3DS   Riakodoadm | 6/23/2016  1 comment  1  log in to like post  5

typeGenetics Only
A random act of splicing turned into probably some of the brightest Norns you'll see swimming around your world. They're based on the Evo Norn genome, with a few tweaks to make them able to breathe underwater from adolescence (or from birth in the case of the Florafish norns), able to swim with the Swimming Agent from about the same age, and have stronger tendancies to play with/eat critters.
They're also kind of colortrue, although given the gender tinting differences in the Butterflyfish, you might just end up with a lot of purple-ish Norns.

They need the Butterfly Norn, Flora Norn, and Pearl Mermaid Norn sprites.

A pack of Norn breeds, with a curveball thrown in. Includes the semi-alcoholic Jaderald Norn, the hardy[citation needed] Bridgewalker Norn, the Ombre Bridge Norn (basically a reskinned Bridgewalker), and the questionable Dandelion Half-Norn. More information on each can be found in the included text file.

Between them all, they require these sprites: Bruin Norn, Bengal Norn, Civet Norn, Magma Norn, Treehugger Norn, Zebra Norn, Fallow Norn, Hardman Norn, Bengal des Neiges, Jungle Norn, Shee. And do keep in mind the usual geat-related precautions before you go filling your world full of Half-Norns!

Flora Norns. Chichi CFF genome. You know the drill.

...Including my ability to not keep true to original genomes. I noticed the C2 version of the Flora Norns had a few extra quirks, so I tried to replicate them here. Notably, an affinity for the natural world and the ability to breathe underwater as well as on land.

You will, of course, need the original breed installed.

Also included is something I ended up making based on this genome, called the Coral Flora Norn. It isn't as colorful as another species named "Coral" out there, but nevertheless capitalizes on the "breathe underwater" part. It's not a gilled norn, but it does tend to eat critters more than most.
Amphibious Dragon Norns v.2   C2   DisasterMaster | 6/14/2016  1 comment  1  log in to like post

authorTrix & Kathira
The sprites of the Amphibious Dragon Norns were converted by Trix from Kathira's Dragons from Creatures 1. This version of the Amphibious Dragons use a by Kathira modified genome based on the 256er genome by Creature Labs. The Dragons have a life expectation of about 5 hours. They are already with 1 hour 22 minutes grown up. They are able to breathe underwater. An additional instinct tells the Norns that is good to drink something, when they are thirsty. The Amphibious Dragon Norns have gender specifc colors. This Nornbreed use Ettin slot R.

Abyss Dragon Norn v2.0 Genfile   C3DS   Lurhstaap | 4/8/2016  comment  log in to like post

typeGenetics Only
It wouldn't let me edit the other upload, alas, so I'll just have to post this separately. I forgot to include the .gen file in the other .zip. So here it is, with the .gno file as well so the captions don't go out on you. The Pigment and Bleed genes are set on random color settings so if you use this you'll want to tweak those to your liking. (The shown Norn is from one of my breeding colonies rather than a gen 1 but she's too pretty not to use as the face for the breed on this upload. :P) In the future I'll remember to include this stuff in the main breed's .zip file.

The new Abyss Dragons use the sprites of the original Draconian Norns and the Gargoyle Norns. Both must be installed for the Abysses to look right.

While not yet perfect (I doubt I'll ever consider them such since there will always be something else to tinker with), these guys are now good enough to release, I think. Let me know if you encounter any serious (or even not-so-serious) issues with them, please! The only major problem I know of right now is that the Artemia Sea metaroom tends to be too hot for them. Using the Heater on its chilling settings might help, but I haven't actually tried it.

Otherwise, they do great in the Hydro Nornterrarium, the Deep Abyss (of course), and the updated Aquanornia. I haven't gotten any other aquatic metarooms to work on this machine yet but I'm sure they'll do fine anywhere there is a sufficient quantity of prey and the temperatures aren't too extreme (though they deal better with excess cold than excess heat as a rule) - this includes terrestrial rooms. I have done much less terrestrial testing of them, but they frequently use the upper parts of the Aquanornia room and they seemed to do fine in Veridia the few times I raised them there, so you don't need to keep them in water at all if you don't want to.

As the title notes, this is a TWB version of the breed. I plan to do a CFF version as well to avoid the temperature-related issues, but I wanted both available and the TWB version is the more "true to concept" one anyway. So I did it first.

There is a text file with some care/feeding information in the .zip, and a WHOLE lot of export files representing various genetic colors. Some look rather similar but are still genetically different. There is one male and one female for each genetic color (which often look very different thanks to the differences in the underlying sprites). I recommend keeping them in groups of no fewer than four individuals, as they are highly social and get lonely more easily than normal. Also, do not be alarmed by fighting - they are tough and will not kill each other except in the most extreme circumstances (none of mine have ever killed each other but it's theoretically possible).

Please do not cross-breed or splice Abyss Dragons with other breeds (including version one Abysses) unless you are willing to deal with a lot of stillborns, sliders, and other totally nonviable offspring. They have new organs, deleted genes, and otherwise will not cross well with others.

Abyss Dragons are a variant of Amphibious Draconians with a variety of alterations, mostly fairly minor in themselves, but which add up to quite a different-behaving Norn. As their name suggests, I particularly like them in the Deep Abyss metaroom. They look incredible there - almost subtly bioluminescent sometimes against the dark background. However, they will work fine in just about any metaroom so long as you provide an adequate supply of edible critters, pests, and bugs, since they are fully amphibious.

A list of the various ways the Abyss Dragons have been changed is included in a .text document in the .zip file (sorry the picture is so dark, but I had a hard time getting a good image showing both a male and a female. The more truly blue one with a greenish tint is male, the one that looks sort of brown or gold as well as blue is the female; the color differences are due to the underlying sprites of the Draconian Norns).

IMPORTANT! This breed requires the Draconian Norns to be installed to look right!

By request, here are the agent files I used to create the original A-name/Gen1 Grendeltails, the ancestors of all the later ones. Note that although color options are included, they vary in more than just color. Also note that they are not remotely colortrue. :p More information is included in a text file in the .zip.

It's my birthday, and I thought it was a nice day to release a new breed; so here are the Bloom Norns. :)

The Bloom Norns are inspired by flowers. They're not very different from the ChiChi Norns, but have some adaptations that are worth noting. First of all they have a higher chance to mate, because they get friendly easier, and libido lowerer has a faster half life. Secondly, the cells in their digestive system organs are protected by cellulose. (I really didn't just make that up.) So these organs have some extra defense against the cold. (TWB only; CFE and CFF versions have an overall reduction of coldness gain.) And ultimately, they have some extra protection against wounds and alcohol.
