Ok, so I had this Idea for a while now and I haven't found anything similar in the suggestions. (I also hope I put this in the right sub-forum ) If this is something that has already been suggested (or rejected), just let me know and I'll yeet this into the bin.

Sooo, I guess everyone knows that in explore the eyecolor is the same as the one on your main lion? But what about the Base? It's always the same muddy brown, even if your lion has a Ethereal or a Noctis Base.
My Suggestion:
Change the color of the fur in explore to the one your lion actually has. - But wait!


1. Eww.

I'm sure there are people who like having the current brown fur color in explore even if their lion has a different one, or they just don't like this suggestion for whatever reasons.
I think this feature should only be able to be bought in the Oasis for 10 or 15 with a toggleable button, in case your next king has a base that you don't want to see in explore. So people who don't like this don't get affected and people who buy this will always have the option to toggle this on and off whenever they want.
Also a personal opinion: This could be a oppournity to update the art/ fur texture of the explore UI. I think it looks a little bit outdated compared to the newer art we get.

2. 200+ Bases...

Everyone knows we have more than 200 Bases and more are always coming. I'm absolutly against the Idea of making a unique fur coloring for every single base. I don't want our dear lioden artists having bleeding fingers.
So let's add only recolors for the following color Groups:

Black Dark
Black Medium
Black Light

Cream Dark
Cream Medium
Cream Light

Golden Dark
Golden Medium
Golden Light

Red Dark
Red Medium
Red Light

These are still 12 different recolors, but it is way more realistic than demanding over 200 recolors for a suggestion. I know there are some bases that are in the same color group but look entirely different, for example: Haze and Noctis (Both are Black Dark Solid). Or maybe you have a lion with a Interstellar base but you covered the base with markings so your king looks natural?
That's what the suggested toggle button is for, you can always switch back to the standard brown.


3. Mockups!

I made a few mockups for this, but beware... they are really ugly. I also don't know if the entire UI should be colored or just the mane part?

Black Dark

 

Cream Light

 



Golden Medium

 


Red Dark

Fur only colored looks greater. Support! ^^

I personally like the fur only. I think this is a great idea and would love to see it implemented:)

I kind of like this idea— Maybe make it a toggle sort of thing where you can choose from several or the normal one? Sometimes the color contrast makes it difficult for people to read and there should be options. I don't think it should cost GB though.

i support, but i think if it's only doing the base groups, you shouldn't have to pay for it— i think it should be free like the eye feature

it could still just be a toggle on the den page with all the other toggles, maybe something like "Match explore base to main male" or just "match explore base" as something that you can toggle on or off

definitely support, i just think it should be free

One alternative to the issue of so many bases could be only doing it for Special bases, perhaps? From my experience 99% of kings have both special bases and mane colors anyways.

Or even a premade set of colors for the fur, one for each color of the rainbow(but muted/toned down ofc) and assigning each base the color that's closest to make that fur color show up in explore. That seems a bit more intensive coding-wise though.

Support 100% either way!

Thanks everyone for the replies and supports!

@Astrid (6.7K Ice 3xRos Svelte) (#124118) & Guillo [Project] (#107254)

I'm still of the opinion that you have to pay for it, since this is a cosmetic change just like the additional cub stages. Also, it's not that hard to get 10 or 15, sell food & junk and buy GBs from the GB Sales, or sell one or more Items on the branches.
Or you buy directly from the Oasis with real money which would also support the game.

@Calix {5k Uneven} (#4975)

I wouldn't do it only for Special Bases. I've seen a bunch of kings with Ebony or Cloudburst Base, it would be mean if those are forced to use the standard brown, just because their base isn't special.
I had a King with Doubloon Base myself once, and it would be unfair if I had to use an Applicator to use this feature.
However, adding premade colorations for the fur and let everyone with the feature choose what color they want, would be a good Idea!

That's totally fair for the rarity- I kinda forgot that ebony/cloudburst/etc weren't in special tbh! I think I get rare/special mixed up haha.

Either way, please Lioden gods let me have anything besides brown fur in explore

I was just thinking today that the fur texture in explore could use some updating. I don't really care one way or another on the color of it but it for sure needs an art update.

I really like this! I could see it being a purchasable and/or toggleable feature in the future. In your mockups, I prefer the "Fur Only Colored" variants.
