The Quest For a "Perfect" Creature


Recommended Posts

To me, it didn't matter if a creature was the strongest or the fastest (Now I see why I'm so bad at Niche,) but the most important thing to me was whether or not a creature looked cute.  Bam. Perfect creature.

I even still remember my panda army from 0.1.5., because we all know panda pattern was the superior gene to every other gene.

Actually, panda pattern was just a cosmetic gene, and I'm pretty sure it had no effect on a creature's survival...

But ever since they removed exterminated all pandas from existence after 0.5.0., I started to look for "cute" genes again. Then, I discovered how adorable big ears were. So, big ears quickly became the new panda pattern for me. Bam. New perfect creature.

Then I discovered how cute melanism was with black eyes. Combine this with big ears now. Bam. Newer perfect creature.

That's my perfect creature right there.

What do you guys consider to be perfect creatures? :D

I love bearyena ears as well, but I don't have one perfect creature. My tribe that went to the home island was 'perfect' for surviving especially in a swamp but they weren't my preferred looks (as I don't have one) I cannot have a preferred look because I love diversity in my tribes. It get's really boring really fast if everybody looks the same, so I just have favourite genes, but I don't want them on all of my Nichelings either ^^

I'm boring and favor more functional genes. Things like nimble finger and ram horn (it's hard to get mega horn when u r starting new files all the time).

Usually all my nichelings have the same useful traits and I leave the cosmetic traits alone. I like having variety.
Tho I usually try to get rid of yellow fur because it's just plain ugly. Two yellow genes r way too bright of a yellow, but at the same time it doesn't look good mixed with other colors like brown or black. It's just horrible all around. I like mask and spots. Stripes are sometimes hard to see in my opinion, i like how they looked in older versions better. And I usually try to breed out black eyes. I like when my niches have all sorts of different colors, purple, yellow, green, blue... But when there's a lot of black eye genes they just dominate everything.

I like yellow fur mixed with redbrown fur. It makes a nice orange color. Also my fav nicheling had yellow mixed with white. Other yellow combinations do look bad tough. Different eyecolors are nice.

I am not a big fan of the yellow fur either, though mixed with white and beige it makes some nice combinations, if I remember correctly. I don't like the red fur either, at least not in double form. Mixed with others it's alright.

Same, then the yellow looks more like a soft blonde.
Two red genes looks too much like a fire engine red for me. But I do think it's cute when red and white fur genes r mixed. Pink. ahaha

Oh! I think Ossen looks very lovely
Because it's yellow and white

yellow/yellow is gross
so is yellow/black

Okay, now it makes sense. Thank you!

 

Literally every creature with Ossen's color in my tribe is named after him...

Imo I don't really like yellow fur (especially with patterns), unless it's mixed with white, red or brown (I think that's how you get a really cute honey colour)

If your saying genetically perfect, there is no way for one creature to be the best, strongest, and fastest. It all ends in an equilibrium. Like if you had super strength, you would sacrifice precision and speed. if you were super fast and very presice, you would sacrifice super strength. (It can eventually balance to an equal amount of speed, precision and strength) You're saying cutest, so if we had all combinations of species from niche, then one would top over the others for being the cutest.

Hang on, there is a limited amount of combinations in niche, but unlimited names (if you name them). So does that make niche unlimited? It's not bad to have two (Is it nichelings? niches? nicheopi?) animals that look the same, or three, or four, or five, or six, or seven, or eight, or nine ,, ,,,

MY MIND IS BLOWN

If you disagree, you're wrong!

Calm down, child
