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!

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

Oh and..

Oh, and when I said 'can't paint on top of textures tho' I meant you can't paint over skins from the shop and stuff. WHOOPS! My bad. XD

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.

Pitch was "born" on a small island not known to anyone but dragons. His egg was tiny, thus considered a runt by his parents. He did not seems suitable for the war they were preparing for. They threw his egg away, only to be rescued by his sister, Tundra. As she was sent away by their parents, a giant Monstrous Nightmare swooped in and killed Pitch's mother while his father fled with three extra eggs. Not seeing Pitch's egg, the nightmare left as well. However, two humans riding atop a disabled Night Fury found his egg. One of them took his egg home, hatched, and cared for him. When he was about 11, he ran away from home after accidentally setting his trainer's home on fire. Pitch came across a Green Death while he was away, which gave him a damaged eye and leg, but also the discovery of his Titan Form. Pitch now resides on an island he calls "The Dragon's Nest", with his trainer and a few close friends.

Description: Clay is a jumpy young Canavis with lots to say. Whether it be about something he likes or hates, he can talk about it for a long time. He doesn't like flying with friends because he has a fear that he will bump into them somehow and fall. He is extremely friendly unlike most of his species, but can be shy at times. He can get mouthy, but only when he is frustrated. While he does like being around others, he tends to be a lone wolf, either because he wants to be or he is afraid of someone teasing him about his looks.

 

 

Art by yours truly~

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
