I would like to be able to play the downloadable version on my mac better, as I used to be able to play it just fine in multiplayer and singleplayer, but now with the updated graphics I can barely play singleplayer anymore. I understand there is mobile but I don't prefer it. Maybe, there could be graphics settings that have High, Medium, and Low settings for Vikings, Dragons, and Enviorment. I would really love this if it where/is possible, and it might allow tons of people the ability to play without SO MUCH LAG! I'm not tech savvy so I have no idea how they would do this, but it shouldn't be too hard, right?

I agree , i can barely play SoD now because of the 'new' graphics.. not everyone has a buffy PC.

Agreed.

I do enjoy the graphics (most of them haha) and I love looking at others' dragons but it's always been laggy with MMO on although I have a new phone (not the best though). It's especially annoying in TRR, I'd definitely set the graphics' quality lower for that because it's frustrating when you don't see where your dragon flies in time.

Things you don't need to know about me and my dragons to stay alive: My viking's name is nightrainOfSummer. She's not really a character, rather a version of myself. I do have a story but it changes a lot so I don't write it here. My second viking's name is HighwayMintOvO. I named both after amazing songs (Nightrain by Guns N' Roses, Highway to H.ell by AC/DC and Highway Zero by Izzy Stradlin), Mint, our almighty goddess and OvO, the one and only stalker king Psycho Boneknapper.

Outside of game info: I love listening to music, most of my dragons are named after songs. I'm watching One Piece (finally at the current episode) and what I like the best about HTTYD are the dragons. My favourite dragons are the Skrill, the Stormcutter, the Triple Stryke and the Moldruffle. I also play Rise of Berk and I read Warrior Cats (in German). My favourite movie is Into The Wild (no, not only because of the soundtracks... but they're a big part of it too XD)
This is my dragon cave account.

My characters
Those are documents mainly about my dragons, but also adoptables and own characters. I'd like to thank everyone who made art for me, I'm always happy to see others' interpretations of my characters. I'll link them soon. I will also link the songs I named them after, if there's no music video I'll link a live video because they're more interesting to me. If there's no decent quality live video either I'll try to link an audio XD

I would LOVE this option. I never play SoD on the computer because loading takes forever on the desktop, and my laptop is old and rubbish and can't handle it. With the fancy graphics update, I was really scared that I wouldn't even be able to play on my iPad because it's a bit older and that water was making it glitch like crazy.

 

~HOWEVER~

 

They fixed that. My iPad is now back to the old water and old landscape textures, but my character, dragon, and the buildings are clear and lovely. XD My sister's iPad, which is brand new with more horsepower, displays the fancy new water and landscape textures with no issue. Big thank you to the admins and developers! I really appreciate it! :D I can't see other players' outfits all the time now, but that's not too much of an issue for me. 

 

I would love an option to change the quality. That way, if I wanted to take high-quality screenshots on my iPad, I could choose to deal with the low frame rate for a while. And I could choose to put up with mobile-grade quality and finally be able to race on my laptop. :)

You can PM me for art requests if you like. :)

 

Or PM me to scream about Hero Academia. I'm BNHA trash now, this dumpster is my home, don't ever try to evict me, this metaphor is going too far. Season 4 will emotionally wreck me. If you don't like Iida Tenya I will fight you behind a Denny's.

Dragons:

  • Pudding Cup, Female Gronckle- Sweet and always dependable. She sleeps cross-eyed.
  • Violet, Female Changewing- Named after Violet from The Incredibles. Fond of swimming, and up for any adventure.
  • Norbert, Male Death Song- Really likes firing at other players. He's... not quite right in the head, and may retain some cannibalistic instincts. Not afraid of the disgusting smell of the Dragon Bloom.
  • Zappy, Male Shockjaw- Fast. Really fast. We do a lot of racing together, and he doesn't put up with nonsense.
  • Oddmund and Dinkly, Male Zippleback- When I first hatched these guys (this guy? who can tell), I took them to practice their fire skills at a fire pit. They lit it successfully, then promptly laid their heads in the flames and went to sleep. True story.
  • Lucius, Male Groncicle- Named after Frozone from The Incredibles.
  • Adelaide, Female Raincutter- Named after Snotlout's little sister from the HTTYD books. Likes battling Berserkers.
  • The Hulk, Male Rumblehorn- Likes going on stable quests, doesn't really like to be ridden.
  • Dash, Male Speed Stinger- Again, named after Dash from The Incredibles.
  • Puddles, Female Mudraker- She's pink, and lives up to her color.
  • The Whisperer, Male Whispering Death- Cranky, stubborn, tries to eat me occasionally. His name sounds uncreative, but I love the Mysterious Benedict Society. :P
  • Horrorcow, Female Razorwhip
  • Eggingarde, Female Flame Whipper- Helpful and good at racing.
  • Tony Stank, Male Armorwing- Iron Dragon? No?
  • Dr. McCoy, Male Boneknapper- hurhurhur i'm so punny
  • Doomfang, Male Shivertooth- Named after the Doomfang from the books. Affectionately nicknamed Dinosaur.
  • Old Wrinkly, Male Smokebreath
  • Susan Storm, Female Typhoomerang- Because she looks like Torch's sister.

  • Emergency, Male Singetail
  • James, Male Eruptodon
  • Florence, Female Hobblegrunt
  • Squirrel, Female Moldruffle
  • Dottie, Female Sweet Death

  • Thunda From Down Unda, Male Thunderdrum
  • Lloyd, Female Thunderdrum
  • Tricycle, Female Triple Stryke
  • Peanut, Female Night Terror

Cause I'm a lime - lime wireee!

The water wasn't fixed for me (mobile version) but it doesn't really bother me... can get quite irritating during battles though.
