Emiraldi is getting older. About how much longer does she have to live? I wanna make sure I sell off the items I don't need before she dies so I don't lose them.

Thanks, Dragoler. I'll be a little sad to see her go. It's hard to believe it's been so long! At least she was able to have a second child before aging!

Could someone hatch a female nornchi to mate with Dracarys?

I just so happened to hatch a lady nornchi by chance. If he's still single, she could be his!

If anyone has a single male Grendelchi wandering about, I have a little lady who's looking for a partner.

There don't seem to be any single males, most are "engaged." Someone needs to hatch a male.

I have a single male, if you're still looking. He is currently asking Esmeralda to be engaged, but I haven't heard back yet. If it doesn't work out, Fig'd be quite happy to be engaged to yours.

Sounds good to me. If you never hear back, she'd be happy to have Fig Grah II!

Slime is now an adolescent and there are still no male Ettinchis. It would make me very happy if someone adopted a mate for her. :D It'll have to be a first gen, because the only male egg is her brother. :P

This is just a reminder that reserving offspring eggs is not allowed. This is to make sure that all available creatchis may be adopted by anyone, regardless of who wants a specific egg. It's just fairer to everyone this way. :)

Been a while since anyone's posted in this topic, but I have a suggestion that fits here.

I was just thinking about how much of a crapshoot it is to get certain Creatchi colors, and that made me think of an idea I had a while back: custom Creatchis.

If a user has successfully raised a certain amount of creatchis, perhaps they could have the option to create a custom colored Creatchi; pick body color, pick stripe color, push a button, and have a new egg. To further balance it out, perhaps the color options could be limited solely to the colors that user has already bred; they would still have to get new colors by breeding first.

That way, we wouldn't have to worry so much about having colors die out, and it'd make Creatchi a little more interesting for long-time users.

It's now been confirmed that siblings can breed - thought it was worth pointing that out here. :)

Oof, reached that stage where all the items are gone and the coinchi is low. Do we know what the specifics are on what generates both, the chances of getting them, and how much? Clicking around the site can give 1 coinchi sometimes, what does forum posting do, if anything? Bibble?

Posting a bibble, or commenting on one, usually gives one item. I think it's the same with posting in the forum, just be mindful to not flood the place... :)

in the last days more people said that they have trouble raising their Creatchis, did anything change?
I too have trouble dealing with mine, have some money but the shop is kinda empty :/

^ EttinLover has some good advice there. :) Think of Creatchi as an online game; half the fun is hunting around the website for items, working out which posts (i.e. forum, news, downloads, comments, bibbles, etc.) can reward you with certain items, and also discovering what some of those items actually do. We're always on hand if you get really stuck though!

Randomly navigating around the website can also earn you some coinchi, as well as selling any spares back to the Creatchi Mart (when you have them). I'll go there now and see if I have any balls or apples to sell, see if I can stock it up a bit more.

So I recently had a thought upon reading a recent Creatchi-related bibble to create a survey about people's thoughts on Creatchi. I have my own likes and dislikes about the feature, but I think it'd be interesting to see just how common they are.

You can find the survey here.

To give my own thoughts on the subject: Creatchi is probably one of the best features of Creatures Caves. It's just so much fun watching them grow, breeding them, and seeing what colors they produce. Plus if you're feeling creative you can give them whatever personality you please.

As for the bad: Do I really need to repeat my gripes about the energy bar at this point? Though to be honest, it's not so much the drive itself that bothers me; it's the fact that creatchis fall asleep when it drops, effectively making it so that it takes two hours at the least to fill. Compare this to the other drives, which take a couple seconds at most provided you have the necessary items.

I also can't say I like the poop all that much either. It was funny when it was first implemented, but now I just don't think it adds anything to Creatchi. On top of being glitchy, scoops are very expensive so it's difficult to keep on top of it if you're not super active. The poop might not do anything, but it's still ugly to look at and that's punishment enough for me. Furthermore, unlike the other drives this feature has no parallels in the actual Creatures games. At most real Creatures urinate, not excrete (and said urination is just another cycle within the genome rather than something visible externally).

A new thing I've come to be bothered by is how much of a crapshoot getting black and white creatchis is. They're random, to some degree, moreso than the other colors. It's annoying enough trying to aim for them, but it's frustrating when you're trying to breed another color yet a black or white offspring shows up and potentially kills off the color entirely.

So what would I change? I'd at the very least make the energy bar NOT put the creatchi to sleep when it drops. However, I think it'd be better off not being a drive at all; rather, I'd make falling asleep something that just happens on its own, once every two days or so. Maybe make the creatchi make the sleepy face for an hour before falling asleep just so that asset doesn't go to waste.

The poop I'd ax entirely. So much for the assets, though.

Another thing I'd add is an additional thing to do with a Creatchi other than tend to its needs and breed it. Maybe something like clothes or a personal room. At the moment, once a Creatchi has bred and had its two eggs, I'm waiting for it to die so I can move on to the next one.

A gene splicer of some kind would be nice, too. Creatchis are made out of multiple parts (there's even some examples of this theoretical scenario in the Gallery), so it'd be interesting to see how the species mix together for real.

There should really be a more reliable way of getting black and white creatchis. I've suggested one potential solution earlier on this page, in the form of custom Creatchis. However, another potential option is making it so certain color combos always produce a black creatchi or a white creatchi. That way people who want them can aim for them more reliably, while also solving the issue of having black or white creatchis potentially ruin a bloodline of another color.

And finally, the obligatory mention of new patterns other than stripes. It's been highly demanded for years at this point; it's kind of strange that it hasn't happened yet.

Good survey. I like the idea of new patterns and other appearance features (hair? ear shapes?) but we'd need someone to create sprites for them, since Creatchi's original spriter isn't around any more. I'm also not sure how much free time Rascii has to devote to Creatchi at the moment. Should probably have mentioned all this in the survey, but I didn't think of it at the time. :P

I'm pretty confident that we could find a new spriter to replicate the style of the Creatchi sprites. In fact, it should be fairly straightforward to create layers of new patterns to go over the top of the Creatchi sprites themselves (I seem to recall it's done in layers?). But yeah, the rest is dependent on Rascii and his free time. Last I heard he was preparing to relocate and start a new job back in Chicago. :)

I need a scoop, badly. Is there any easy way to get 10 coins? I cant seem to get any by reloading the home page.

Just a thought...

Would it be possible to allow people to adopt a second creatchi IF it is close to death? That way, there wouldn't be a lot of people who have two, but it would be possible to save the ones that get adopted and shortly die because the person never comes back.

Or even, if someone has no creatchis at the moment, they could have the adopt to take over care for a neglected one?

Hmm I wouldn't mind spriting some ear/hair shapes! It sounds like fun I would just have to practice a bit to replicate the originals :)
