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)

"This is an X-Box you say??"

 

Shadow (Toothless. :P) is going exploring, and Winter saw something on the water. "Looks like a boat.." Ferno said. He was still quite concerned about the new Alpha. Askar, hearing the word "Boat", bounded over to see it.

"Oh wow! I've seen one of them before. Look, they're hauling the fish onto it." Winter and Askar observed the men as they threw another net into the water. "Are they taking it all?" asked Winter as they threw a third net in. "What? Like... stealing it? That's not very nice!" Winter took off towards the boat, while Askar sat on the cliffedge, feeling awkward. This was not a good situation. Why were those men taking all of the fish?

 

WELL THEN!! I hope you liked that mini story. 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.

Autumn5467 made this! Thank you! Love it!!

Name: Chakra

 

Personality: Chakra has a friendly sort of aura about him. He is goot to go to when you're angry as you immediatly seem to calm down. Chakra is very kind and peaceful and always gentle. He perfers not to fight. Anyone who goes near Chakra feals healed or renewed. Even though he is peaceful, Chakra is very very protective.

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!)

 

 

The Speedstalker created by NightmareRebuff and goldenfury360 Thanks so much!

Goosebumps can often be found hiding behind a corner, or underneath something. He never means any harm, and he'll leave you alone once you're used to his "attacks".

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:

 

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 huge crush on Stormnight, my deadly nadder, but has been too shy to say anything and she is too oblivious to notice he has feeling for her.

 

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
