Giraffe Norns   C3DS   Arnout | 5/6/2015  log in to like post  12

typeGenetics + Sprites
authorCreature Labs, Arnout
The Giraffe Norns originally appeared as the Okapi Norns in Creatures Village. They were one of my favourite Creatures Village Norn breeds, and I quite didn't like the fact that earlier converted versions were so terribly huge, compared to vanilla C3/DS breeds. Resizing the adult Panda Norns to their baby and adolescent sizes had some pretty nice results, so I thought I'd give it a shot with the CV Okapi Norns as well (after merging the divided ear, hair and head sprites into solitary head sprite files, that is).

The Giraffe Norns occupy Grendel Slot Y (which I chose because the only other breed on that slot was the Verharke Priest Norn, no clue if these are still available somewhere). These Norns like to travel, although they would really feel at home in the Ettin Desert. They live shorter lives than your average Norns and have somewhat longer pregnancies as well. Giraffes also tend to get hungry quite easily. If I recall correctly they use Evolnemesis' Evo Norn genome as default genome (I hope you don't mind as I completely forgot to ask :$).

The download includes an egg agent that goes into your My Agents folder, as well as .att files that go into your Body Data folder. And last, but definitely not least: .c16 files that go into your Images folder.

Oh; I've also included Olaf and Olivia (seen as adolescents in the picture) They're starter parents. [ngrin]

Download link to a newer version.

I felt that the Giraffe Norns deserved some extra attention, so I've updated them.
- I've made old sprites for them. They're not the same color as the original old sprites (CV) but should resemble them closely enough.
- I've updated their genetics. They resemble ChiChi's a bit more now but should still feel at home in the Ettin Desert. (There's CFE, CFF and TWB versions now as well.)
Here is a download link. Let me know if it works correctly, I'm still getting used to Dropbox. X)

The zip file contains new genetics files and a new egg agent. If you'd rather use the old Giraffe Norn version but want old Creature sprites anyway, install the older version first and then put the sprites (from this zip) in your images folder.

How did I not see these before??? D:

-downloads frantically- The cuteness, and no longer oversizedness, eee!

Very cool! Yeah, I have no problem with you using the CFF genetics, especially if it is 0.8+ which is basically the final genome even though it's still technically for beta testing.

I don't anticipate any issues or major changes between 0.8.1 and any future or official CFF breeds though, and these should not have problems crossbreeding with anything but possibly some very early CFF testing versions... The only thing that the final ones might have different is that the antibody creation reactions in the final CFF genome will take some nutrition from their bodies, making them a bit weaker against disease, and they might be a even a little less fertile than these... So these are a bit hardier... or at least they will be when I finally get around to finishing converting all the breeds.

Are these Cff 0.8.1? I'd assume so. I love the idea, have them in my world right now, their proportions look a bit odd though, is that what they were like in CV? I don't remember :B I do think the CV norns had bigger heads in comparison but these guys' bodies also look a bit big for their arms and legs.

I'm so happy you decided to do this! Cause now I don't have to! XD

I bet they look amazing with Civets! So many spots, so much cuteness.

They're too cute! Going to download them as soon as my PC gets fixed! :D
