When your wolfling run is more eggs than norns...

And I set the world population pretty damn high, too. [noddeye]

There's a limit to norn being able to get pregnant, but it's automatially set (two lower?) than the pop limit, so they'll keep laying tons of eggs every time the population dips, but only one manages to hatch. It is so annoying because they end up hatching in random order too.

Man I don't see that blue speckled egg nearly enough! It's my favorite but my norns tend to pop out the others (especially checkerboard and the blue and green almost stripey one) more often.

At lot of the eggs are so pretty I almost just want a collection of em to decorate with. xD

I'm glad I'm not the only one who ends up with a zillion eggs. I've since spread them out a little from the Meso. It hasn't helped the egg count, though. [nlaugh]

The random order really gets me because then I end up with gen 8s hanging out with gen 14s and reintroducing old DNA to the current population. I tend to be very selective with how I introduce new strands to my runs, mostly because I don't usually like total stagnation, but the eggs being what they are make it kind of a pain to track and control. [ngeek]

I do have to say, though, the stripey ocean blue/green and that tie-dye looking light blue are my faves. The white and grey/tan ones are so... boring. I do think lil pedestal eggs would be kind of adorable to decorate with, though. If only I had more CAOS experience. Might have try that anyways as I love doing sprite work. [ntongue]

Sometimes I wish each norn species had their own egg look instead of them all laying the same looking eggs. Could be cute!

That would be really cool! I would definitely be up for something like that. :D

These days computers can support a lot of norns, my current problem is creating enough living space, as most metarooms have buggy CA links and norns won't move around in them.

Neon Sky, I like the idea of pedestal eggs too. They could be great for Easter. Also, if they were made for the Garden Box, the CAOS wouldn't be too difficult at all. I'm a total CAOS noob and I've managed to make several Garden Box decorations.

It's been a long time since I've made any and I don't have Monk anymore, so I'd have to track down the download and brush up on my Garden Box decoration agent skills, but if I can do that I'd be willing to do the coding if you're willing to do the sprites

Some games seem to work worse with age, but I find it pretty amusing that we can handle more and more Norns as our computers keep getting better at handling them! [nlaugh]

I tried to keep with the Docking Station/Creatures 3 style.

Ooh, neat... Maybe it could use song wings or prongs on either side to make the egg look less precariously perched, though? I do like this design, though, and maybe I could include both.

Yeah, I'll try out some black wings and see how that looks. :)

Alright, I added some wings!

EDIT:

And an alternate style.



And alternate colors:

SpaceShipRat on the Discord suggested some silver versions, so here they are. :)

Gold versions... I'm not sure if I like them. It might just be that they don't look good with that egg. [ngrimace]

I love it. they could change from one sprite to the other by being clicked on, to save space in the Garden Box

I would add them as a single agent with two Special Actions: One for the fluffy set of wings in each variation, and one for the spiky set of wings. I'm going to attempt this tonight, I think. It has been a while since I've done something like this, though, so let's see how it goes

EDIT: Or would you prefer to do some more variations first? I can wait, if so

No, please feel free! :) I also made a cute little fish, but I think it needs some growth and turning frames before I could really add it.

And another one in a few colors. No wilting steps yet, but I made it mostly as a proof of concept because I've never made anything like this before. XD

I really like those sprites. Sadly, though, at the moment anything more complicated than a gardenbox decoration is beyond me coding-wise. I could try to learn, but for plants and animals, you'd probably get quicker results if you talked to a coder who does know how to do that.

I can still the egg decorations, though

No worries! I'll also try pulling apart an agent and seeing if I can figure out some of the stuff as well. :) I'm enjoying the sprite-making, though!

How about making those egg stands independent? You can easily import other sprite files in an agent (literally just 1 line of code) and slap it on top of the stand/trophy.... thing.

I could do that. They're on their own layer in Photoshop already, so it would be a breeze to change out the decorations or remove them entirely.
