Ok, so I've not played much in quite some time and haven't been on the forum either, so I'm a tad out of the loop on a few things.....

 

1:  Did the clan glitch from a couple years ago ever get fixed?  That is, the one where you'd get invited to a new clan, and it would auto-join you without your permission, thus kicking you out of your own clan?  Does this happen anymore? 

Subquestion:  Are there any other currently known glitches in clans that haven't been fixed yet?

 

2:  Are the new racing skins color customizable?  Or are they all just that ugly red/orange color?  And if they are color customizable, is it just one color, or two?

 

3:  In the new expansion, there's a tutorial/intro where you learn the mechanics of the new minigames.  Contraptions was the second one, which I had trouble figuring out.  I moved the plank out of my inventory, and placed it on the screen, which all goes well, but then I can't figure out how to rotate the plank that I just placed. I tried clicking and dragging, but that just makes me replace the plank.  What keys/trick are you supposed to use to get this to rotate?  Or is it some glitch that they need to fix yet?

 

4:  I hear there are new and fixed race tracks.  What are the fixes/upgrades?  I don't race a whole lot anymore, even in the few times I log in, but maybe better tracks and fixed clans might give me some incentive.

 

Thanks to anyone who can answer!  :)

Dragons (odd spellings for fun):  [Total = 43]

Nadder:  Thorndaike

Whispering Death:  Seilence  (Doctor Who pun) and Cream Puff  (I was being sarcastic)

Gronkle:  Skarn  (named for a type of rock containing copper)

Smokebreath:  Cihrrus  (after a type of high-altitute cloud)

Monstrous Nightmare:  Salamandastron  (Redwall reference)

Zippleback:  Theta Serpentis  (after a binary star system)

       TITAN!     Yeah, he got a slight color upgrade too :)

     

Stormcutter:  Sigma Nine  (Sigma, for obvious visual reasons, but since that name was not available by itself, I turned it into a rather remote Doctor Who reference)

Skrill:  Artron E  (Named for time-travel energy in Doctor Who)

Changewing:  Nantang  (Omaticayan name for the Viperwolf in Avatar (Cameron's, not the Airbender whatsit))

 

Flightmare:  Silverfish  (well, that's what they look like to me)

Fireworm Queen:  Penta Trapezohedra  (named after a geometric shape, Pentagonal Trapezohedron.  The shape has two sets of five sides with each face having four sides, and the Fireworm has two sets of five legs with four toes to each leg.... yeah, I'm a bit of a nerd.)

Screaming Death:  Cpt Blood  (after the fiction novel - he has the coloring of a fence lizard (minus the red spikes), so I randomly decided to name him after a fencer...)

Grapple Grounder:  Spitfire  (after RAF WWII plane - cause he's got that toothy grin and phenominal stats)

Rumblehorn:  Malohkeh  (reptilian scientist in Doctor Who series 5 - the Rumblehorn looked rather prehistoric to me, and being rather fond of the green coloring for them... reptilian character from the dawn of time it was)

Wooly Howl:  Petrikor  (yes, another Doctor Who ref. - although *Petrichor* (correct spelling) wasn't an option)

Raincutter:  Ikran  (Omaticayan name for the Banshee in Avatar - color options a tad dissappointing.  He looks nothing like the color swatch I have picked out)

 

Boneknapper:  Doctor McCoy (Star Trek reference - Dr. McCoy's nickname is bones... hence the joke)

Devilish Dervish:  Protonus  (Three protrusions from his head, so my first thought was an atom, until I thought of a Proton - composed of 2 "up" quarks, and a "down" quark - which matched his head)

 

Speed Stinger:  Velocitor  (Named after his high velocity and the fact that he looks like a Velociraptor)

Groncicle:  Iceman  (Marvel: X-men - one of the few times I kept the starter colors for a dragon)

 

Death Song:  River Song  (Doctor Who.  Dainty in appearance, dangerous, that alarming shade of red, and everyone is mesmerized - wait, am I talking about the Death Song or River Song?)

Razorwhip:  Knight  (I thought he looked a bit like a medieval knight's gauntlet.  The only other time I kept starter colors on a dragon)

Armorwing:  Groot  (Marvel: Guardians of the Galaxy)

Thunderpede:  Juggernaut  (Marvel:  X-men.  What else do you name a hulk sized dragon with giant fists?  Although this second pic makes me think more of Eliot from Pete's Dragon.)

Hobblegrunt:  Opal  (a sort of silvery-grey rock with shimmering splashes of various colors)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Snafflefang:  Sea Urchin  (the snafflefang's spikey tail just says sea urchin to me)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Nadder:  Cloud Strife  (Final Fantasy - I thought the Titan nadder seemed a bit over the top with the spikes, so I thought it'd be funny to name a titan nadder after a video game character with an accentuated hairdo)

       TITAN!

  

Tide Glider:  Loch Ness  (after the mythical or possibly prehistoric creature that haunts the harbors of Ireland - anyone ever wonder if it was just something like the last Plesiosuar (or distant cousin) to have lived?)

Sweet Death:  Songbird  (Marvel.  The striped look was too good to not draw attention to.  But since the stripes were unalterably black, black and white it was - otherwise, I would've been tempted to use light and dark shades of purple and named it after the Cheshire Cat.)

Night Terror:  Sidri  (Marvel: space creature that, with others, can form themselves into a giant, near invulnerable ship)

Scaldron:  Bloodtide  (Marvel: technically a villain, but her abilities include waterkenesis and flight)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Sliquifier:  Perelandra  (After a book by C.S. Lewis - the sliquifier just reminded me of the dragons and scenery in the book with their "flowy" sea serpent look.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Shockjaw:  Xenon  (After one of the gases in a Plasma/Tesla ball which gives it that "flowering" look at the end of the filaments)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Thunderdrum:  Banshee  (Marvel: X-man with a sonic scream)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Snow Wraith:  Manta  (Marvel: one of the Imperial Guard of the Shiar empire, having infared vision and flight)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Skrill:  TRON  (After the movie.  I decided I will grow a skrill specifically for Titan stage, and the Skrill's "modern" Titan look makes me think of the recent modernized version of the TRON movie.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Singetail:  Tandem  (After their unique wing arrangement)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Eruptodon:  Cannonball  (Marvel: New Mutants.  Although admittedly, he looks a bit litterally like a cannonball too)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Shivertooth:  Wolverine (Marvel: X-men.  'Cause sharp claws that leave people in stitches sounds familiar...)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Timberjack: SRZI ( - that was the closest I could come to writing "SR-71" (Blackbird) - so named after the type of jet the X-men use in the movies.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Tyfoomerang: Lockheed (X-men: Kitty Pryde's pet dragon from another planet.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Terrible Terror: Mushu (Named after Mulan's pocket sized guardian with an attitude.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

1. I think the glitch where you get kicked out of your clan is still there, it just doesn't happen as often. I recently had a member get kicked out of my clan a couple of times but that was the first time it had happened in quite some time.

I don't know of any other glitches associated with clans. If there are any, I don't know about them.

 

2. The new racing skins are not customizable. As of right now, there is no customizable warpaint or racing paint for your dragons.

 

3. I haven't played the new mini games in awhile so I don't know if I remember how to rotate the planks. I thought after you placed it, you clicked on it and then moved it up or down to rotate it. I could be wrong as I haven't played them in awhile.

 

4. There are 4 new race tracks in addition to the ones we already had. The new ones are: Nightmare Tide, Twisted Rock, Posion Valley, and Geyser Maze.  Green checkpoints have been added in all of the tracks. For each lap, you have to go through all of the checkpoints to advance to the next lap. They removed the arrow that told you which way to go and removed the reset feature for if you were going the wrong way. They removed them so you can go back and go through a checkpoint if you missed one. They added the checkpoints to eliminate backwards racing.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.
