A short time ago, I announced that I would be working on combining the idea behind Ylukyun’s Colortrue Norns with Spykkie’s Pearl Mermaid Norns. I was also inspired by Darby’s aquatic wolfling run in Creatures Docking Station, along with KittyTikara’s Colorific Mermaid Norns. After fiddling around with the pigment genes for ages, I was thrilled to spot this beautiful pink color variety! When bred, the Colortrue Pearl Mermaid Norns will have their colors mix together to create uniquely colored offspring. Standard Norns can only produce different colors through mutations, which are relatively rare. Other features of this genetic breed include:
- Amphibious Genes: True to form, the Colortrue Pearl Mermaid Norns will be able to live on land or in water.
- Chemical 63 Gene: Chemical 63 is present from birth, allowing these Norns to swim in underwater areas.
- Locked Appearance Genes: These can no longer mutate, since other sprites do not mix well with this breed.
- Unique Pigmentation: These Norns feature unique pigments, and also make use of pigment rotation and swap.
I was also very pleased with a green variety! The males for both of these colors also turned out very nicely, but the females looked so pretty with their multicolored fins. Finding colors that work for both males and females is a little difficult, but far from impossible! How many colors seems like a reasonable number to release? Are there any specific requests for colors? Or perhaps there are other updates needed for the genomes? I was hoping that this would be a pretty quick project, although it’s taking a little longer to complete. The Colortrue Pearl Mermaid Norns will be here very soon!
