-LOCKED - Marking Opacity During Breeding
Posted on 2022-04-30 14:33:19
Due to some oversight on breeding mechanics regarding the passing of markings (as reported in this bug topic), there has been some misleading information passed down over the life of the game. We want to rectify that today, change how it works for a more friendly solution, and give our deepest apologies for not catching it sooner than today.

Before today:

When breeding markings, there was a 75% chance of a marking passing if both parents had a matching marking in the same slot, otherwise 50% chance of a marking passing. Once a marking passed, its opacity would then be averaged across the parent's opacities for that slot, and then randomised with a -10 to +10 range. Here is the oversight: if a marking's opacity dropped to below 1% due to the randomisation, the marking was then removed.

We are changing it to this:

When breeding markings, there is a 75% chance of a marking passing if both parents have a matching marking in the same slot, otherwise 50% chance of a marking passing. Once a marking passes, its opacity is then averaged across the parent's opacities for that slot, and then randomised with a -10 to +10 range. If the marking's opacity drops to below 1% due to the randomisation, it will be corrected to 1% and will remain on the lion.

Additional information:

* If a marking's opacity rolls over 100%, it will be corrected to 100%. It has not changed, and has always worked this way.

We're really sorry this happened, and we'd like to thank everyone for all their input. We hope going forward this will be a reasonable solution.

Thank you! This is basically the ideal update to the situation, imo! - although mild RIP to everyone who bought bulk opacity changers, myself included :'')

Just to confirm for people who might have reading comprehension issues (ie, me right now with no coffee LOL) the 21% opacity buffer threshold is no longer necessary? low opacity marks will now pass at a 50/50 rate, if bred to a stud with no mark (0% opacity) in the same slot?

So basically it now does work as it was previously believed to work?

Admin Response:
That's right. Also, if you'd prefer to refund your opacity changers and can't refund them via the oasis, please open a modbox ticket with us.
