Ok, so me and a friend both had this same idea (and I won't forget my forum password again XD) so now i'm suggesting it here. PROCEEDING.... it'd be fun to be able to paint the colours onto your dragon the way you want to, like add certain custom markings to make them look more like this or that. There could be lots of different styled brushes, and you could changed the size of the brush too. And you can switch between parts or go into 'freedom' mode, where you can paint anywhere on the dragon. (Youll need to use freedom when adding your own markings) You can't paint on top of textures though. There are also some things that got me thinking, like, people drawing stuff on their dragons that you wouldn't see on a dragon usually. (Example: Drawing of a lady, or a Viking shield). And people writing their phone numbers. And of course, there is a possibility of those who write rude things. So either the admins could somehow make something to block those kind of things from appearing, or we should report the offensive dragon skin. (or just not have this idea added. :P) And finally, I have done some editing, and I now have a good picture of what it might look like:

 

So.... ye... Lemme know what you guys think of this idea!

 

Editing by me

The dragon here belongs to whoever took this screenshot (and I'll have you know, I'm sure no bad skins were made. XD)

To this day

 

I'm not the only kid who grew up this way

Surrounded by people who used to say that rhyme about sticks and stones

As if broken bones hurt more than the names we got called and we got called them all

So we grew up believing no one would ever fall in love with us that we'd be lonely, forever...

That we'd never meet someone to make us feel like the sun was something they built for us in their tool shed So broken heart strings bled the blues As we tried to empty ourselves so we would feel nothing.

Don't tell me that hurts less than a broken bone.

That an ingrown life is something surgeons can cut away

That there's no way for it to metastasize It does

 

She was eight years old

Our first day of grade three when she got called ugly

We both got moved to the back of the class so we would stop getting bombarded by spit balls

But the school halls were a battleground we found ourselves outnumbered day after day

We used to stay inside for recess Because outside was worse

Outside we'd have to rehearse running away or learn to stay still like statues giving no clues that we were there In grade five they taped a sign to the front of her desk that read "Beware Of Dog"

To this day despite a loving husband, she doesn't think she's beautiful

Because of a birthmark that takes up a little less than half of her face...

Kids used to say she looks like a wrong answer that someone tried to erase but couldn't quite get the job done And they'll never understand that she's raising two kids whose definition of beauty begins with the word mom! Because they see her heart before they see her skin, because she's only ever always been amazing!

He...

 

...was a broken branch grafted onto a different family tree...

Adopted...

But not because his parents opted for a different destiny...

He was three when he became a mixed drink of one part left alone, and two parts tragedy

Started therapy in 8th grade

Had a personality made up of tests and pills

Lived like the uphills were mountains and the downhills were cliffs

Four fifths suicidal a tidal wave of anti depressants depressants and an adolescence of being called popper

One part because of the pills, ninety nine parts because of the cruelty.

He tried to kill himself in grade ten when a kid who could still go home to mom and dad had the audacity to tell him "Get over it."

As if depression is something that can be remedied by any of the contents found in a first aid kit.

To this day he is a stick of TNT lift from both ends.

Could describe you in detail the way the sky bends in the moments before it's about to fall

And despite an army of friends who all call him an inspiration

He remains a conversation piece between people who can't understand that sometimes, becoming drug free Has less to do with addiction and more to do with sanity!

 

We weren't the only kids who grew up this way...

To this day kids are still being called names.

The classics were "Hey stupid" "Hey spaz"

Seems like every school has an arsenal of names getting updated every year

And if a kid breaks in a school and no one around chooses to hear do they make a sound?

Are they just the background noise Of a soundtrack stuck on repeat When people say things like

Kids can be cruel?

Every school was a big top circus tent

And the pecking order went from acrobats to lion tamers from clowns to carnies

All of these were miles ahead of who we were we were freaks..

Lobster claw boys and bearded ladies

Oddities

Juggling

Depression

And loneliness

Playing solitaire, spin the bottle,

Trying to kiss the wounded parts of ourselves and heal

But at night! While the others slept, we kept walking the tightrope

It was practice and yes some of us fell

But I wanna tell them that all of this,

Is just debris...

Leftover when we finally decide to smash all the things we thought we used to be

And if you can't see anything beautiful about yourself get a better mirror!

Look a little closer!

STARE A LITTLE LONGER!!

Because there's something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.

You built a cast around your broken heart and signed it yourself, you signed it

"THEY WERE WRONG!!!"

 

Because maybe you didn't belong to a group or a cliche

Maybe they decided to pick you last for basketball or everything

Maybe you used to bring bruises and broken teeth to show and tell but never told

Because how can you hold your ground if everyone around you wants to better you beneath it

You have to BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE WRONG!!

 

They have to be wrong...

Why else would we still be here?

We grew up learning to cheer on the underdog because we see ourselves in them

We stem from a root planted in the belief that we are not what we were called

We are not abandoned cars stalled out and sitting empty on some highway

And if in some way we are don't worry

We only got out to walk and get gas

We are graduating members from the class of we made it

Not the faded echoes of voices crying out names will never hurt me

Of course... They did...

But our lives will only ever always continue to be a balancing act that has less to do with pain

And more to do with beauty...

OH YES

PLeASE.

 

This is awesome. 

 

But mostly what gets me is the grayscale colors, and the option to pay for the recolor AFTER you pick the colors. You can cancel at any time. THAT'S how it should be.

 

I can't count all the times I've decided to recolor a dragon, only to not find a better option/goof it up. Then I'm 15 gems more poor.

 

Admins need to see this. This needs to be passed on to the developers.

Dragon's name: Daydream

Male or Female: Male

Personality: Calm, Soothing. 

Short Backstory (optional): I discovered a young Deathsong, abandoned by his kin. He was trapped in presumably some of his own "amber", but the more I think about it I imagine the others did it to him. I set him free, but I was scared of training him due to the Deathsong's reputation to eat other dragons... But I found out that he in particular didn't have any interest in other dragons. He prefered to heat wild boars, and deer and such, along with the occasional fish. I ttrained him and he is an excellent companion. When it's time to call the dragons back to the stables, he sings his song and the dragons all come flying back. Except for my Thunderdum of course; I have to send a dragon out to go get him.

(Made by Stiger23. thank you very much!)

It's a fun idea in theory.

However, this would make the game unnecessarily huge and heavy moderation would be required because what's going to stop people from painting offensive or negative material on their dragons, like you said? You cannot block out certain 'strokes', that stuff is way too advanced.

 

The painting part would also require a toolset to work with. Painting onto 3D models is nothing short of obnoxious if you don't use software specifically designed for it. I doubt that anyone in the SoD team would feel like making something like that; there's more important matters to handle.

 

Custom textures-- unique skins for dragons would slow down the game greatly. Imagine having to load every unqiue dragon skin there is, and no one ever uses a duplicate skin. Performance would take a great hit and since the game already has the tendency to be laggy despite my having a PC that is well up for the task, I really wouldn't want the game to be slower.

Character Bios/Info:

 

Pitch:

Pitch had a horrible history - two fathers, a deceased mother, and separation from his brother and sister for years. However, things started to get better when I found that Hiccup's dragon, Toothless, is his brother, and his sister, Tundra, lived in the poles until I found her. 


Pitch is very grumpy most of the time. Well... half grumpy. I should say in a annoyed mood. Even then, he deals with it and stays very sweet. When he is not in a annoyed mood, he is awfully lazy and will avoid doing anything physical. He is very quiet and shy. Suspicious about anyone that isn't family. He has a crush on a NightCutter named Sapphire. Pitch and Sapphire are 13 years old.

 

Tundra:

Full bio coming soon.

Note: Tundra can change colors. This is because her father was a changewing and she changes from white/rainbow to navy blue depending on where she is. Pitch shows no signs of having the same ability

Subjects? Pfft!

Heh... I doubt they'd ever let us customize Toothless like this. Probably if they add night furies, then yes they might. XD

Also This was my first ever post what are you doing here this ones so old. XD
