Color chart for Flight Rising by Randomonium09 Color chart for Flight Rising by Randomonium09
EDIT: For those wondering, I'm TheUnderdog09 on FR. Feel free to PM me or post in this chart's thread if you notice any issues or anything with the chart. :) EDIT: I am not really active on FR anymore. It'd be easier to get in touch with me through this here DA account.

Updated 8/27/2013: Skydancer color placements added! HELP REQUESTED: If you have the link to a Skydancer with either an Ice Basic or Black Basic secondary gene, let me know so I can get that squared away.
Edit 9/5/2013: Thanks much to Uturuncu on FR, who provided links to Skydancers with ice and black secondary genes! I might not have time to update the chart tonight, (that calculus homework needs doing,) but it'll be updated by tomorrow at the latest.
Edit 9/6/2013: Confirmed and updated: Skydancers do in fact use the secondary base colors.
Edit 1/9/2014: I do intend to update the chart with colors for the Coatl breed. I just don't have time right now. Bear with me?
Updated 1/18/2014: Took me a week longer than I'd have liked, but the chart is now updated with color placements for the Coatl breed!

Flight Rising is a browser-based pet/breeding game with dragons. That's about it. Most (I think all, actually) of the character art was done by neondragon, which is the only reason I even know the site exists; that woman and her tutorial books are basically responsible for kickstarting any artistic talent I may have. They're also the reason I draw dragons and damn near nothing else.

Anyway, I digress. This is just a pet project that I've been working on the last few days, a compilation of all the colors used in all the genes on the site along with a guide to where they're placed on the various dragon breeds. (I use the word "gene" in the loosest possible sense, as does Flight Rising; each dragon has three genes, each with a set of colors associated, that determines what colors go on the dragon and where. If you're really curious, you can go read about how dragon breeding works on the site. Some day I intend to make a fantasy breeding sim based on actual genetic principles, but I digress again.) Basically, this is the result of my sitting for three days poking at random people's dragons with the eyedropper tool. It will make absolutely no sense to anyone who isn't already familiar with Flight Rising's systems, which I'm sure includes more or less every single one of my watchers. It's only here because I needed it to be somewhere on the internet in order to post it to the Flight Rising forums. So there.

Very, very cool. I'm assuming that since you did it by eyedropper you don't have the numeric equivalents easily accessible?

Thanks!

Terribly sorry for the horrifically late reply.

I doubt I have the exact values used on FR, simply because RGB/hex values are so much more precise than the eyedropper tool, but I could (possibly, if I can make the time,) find out the values of the colors I put on the chart and throw together a spreadsheet, if you're still interested.

oh and through minor observation, I found that for some of the lighter color, the claws uses accent 3

When I was originally making the chart, I noticed weird claw coloration for several different breeds. Many gene colors use identical claw colors that don't show up in the rest of their color palette, and the number of different claw colors I saw seemed fairly limited. My hypothesis (which I never got around to testing, by the way,) is that there's a separate, relatively small "claw color" palette of maybe 2 to 5 different colors, and each gene color uses only one of them.

I didn't look very hard into that part of the system or include it in the chart because a) the claws are so miniscule that their color usually doesn't make a ton of difference and b) by the time I'd noticed this pattern I was already pretty far along with the rest of the chart and was a little too lazy to go back through all of those dragons to assemble a claw color palette.

true to that
thought they do really have some strange minor coloration here and there...

Incidentally, I did notice what you were talking about just now while I was seeing if Skydancers use the secondary bases; it looks like Skydancers' claw colors might line up nicely with the normal gene palettes, unlike any of the other breeds'. I might look into that sometime and see if it doesn't hold true for other primary gene colors, but that probably won't be until FR gets its search functionality back up.

Uturuncu on FR has send you some links :)

Scratch the "might," I can definitely work around the circuit gene. No need for a Skydancer without a tertiary gene, but thank you for looking. :)
