2017s: New Arrivals

Everyone was finally 2 hours old now and everyone, except for Tiger, had more then one egg to their name. That changed as soon as I unpaused the game. Puma was pregnant with Tiger's second egg. Amazingly, she was also the mother of Tiger's only other egg. These two had turned out to be more monogamous then my favorite pair in this world, Lion and Ocelot. Puma didn't even try getting to the norn home and was apparently content to lay her egg near the rest of the group. Everyone was together for a minute or two before they spread out again. Lion and Caracal went to the snowy area while the rest of them stayed in the main hallway. Despite the large amount of kisspopping, there weren't any new pregnancies. So I went off to add a new pair of Undine norns... hopefully with fixed nutrition genes this time.


Minnow and Sculpin were hatched and placed into their little pond area. I also opened the door to their area. The other norns probably wouldn't make their way there, but it gave them the option. At least something interesting would happen then. After the drama of the last few posts, the norns were taking a break. The norns were moving around, occasionally pushing each other, but not much happened for a bit.

Then Lion and Ocelot had another egg together. Ocelot laid her egg at the norn home and then rejoined the group in the main hallway. A second later, it was Puma and Tiger's turn to have another egg. And then Bobcat threw a shivering party in the snow area and forgot to invite Puma. Tiger was the first to leave the party. He either wanted some fruit to eat, or all of the shivering was getting boring. Lion and Ocelot followed soon after. I made a mental note to block of the snow area the next time I used this room. So. Much. Shivering.

Meanwhile, the Undine norns were doing fairly well. Minnow was playing with critters and critter eggs. Sculpin was taking nap on the other side of the room. Minnow eventually joined Sculpin on the other side of the room though. I also moved a few of the snail torchs to the snowy area to see if it helped Bobcat and Caracal. It helped with their boredom, but they were still shivering. I was getting quite tired of hearing the norns shiver.

Infact, I was so tired of them shivering that I created a button to, hopefully, reduce their coldness drive down to a reasonable level. I tested the button in another world first with another 2017 norn named Lynx. He was pretty lonely, so he was soon imported into the main 2017 world. I plopped him in the norn home and waited to see what happened. Tiger had apparently decided to go down a level while I wasn't looking, and Lynx found him pretty quickly. Meanwhile Caracal and Puma were in the main hall, likely looking for Tiger. Bobcat, Lion, and Ocelot were just enjoying the snow area with slightly less shivering. My cobbled together button worked, but not very well.

  1. I've just noticed the last few blog posts! Love your writing style!
    And I'm pleasantly surprised to see that you're using the Other Lone Shee Ark.

    To get rid of the snow, you could run the following bit of code:
    enum 1 1 36432 tick 0 next
    This would make the invisible snow dispensers stop dispensing snow. :)
