Post

To go with some new abilities that I will talk about in a different post, Here are some new dragon features I would like to see.

Dragon Snout would give u the fire breathing ability and strong voice.

Dragon Wing would give u +4 flying if doubled, and +1 strength (from the small claws on dragon wings)

Dragon Tail would give u +1 strength

Why should we have preds that can literally come out of nowhere and burn down the entire island? That's really awful from a game design standpoint and a realism standpoint as well

imagine this, you have a normal nicheling, you walk two spaces forward and see a firebreathing pred, you try to run away, but you notice the grass is burning, it burns out half of your island along with your trees, permanent nests and berry bushes before it rains and that part is now literally useless for anything. In that situation, unless you can kill the predator before it breathes its first breath, you are at the mercy of fire RNG and behavior which as of now in Niche basically guarantees that burning savannah will eventually look like this:

Bombardier beetle makes fire with its butt

If a beetle can make fire, why not a mammal? (from its mouth, not butt)

well it doesn't make fire, it makes a boiling mixture with chemicals, it's essentially firing a scalding, toxic secretion (benzoquinones) and while nichelings can have parts from arthropods, full on firebreathing is a bit too unrealistic, also no organism can actually make it(besides humans with tools)

and while there may be speculative ways for organisms to breathe fire such as methane gas from their guts being ignited by a piezoelectric crystal, no non fictional organism can do that

what would fire do? set things on fire? that's a frankly horrible idea as fire permanently prevents grass from regrowing ever as of now, trees from producing nuts and etc.  You could burn out your entire island by accidentally breathing fire and make it uninhabitable

Answer to answer one: they are connected to the front limbs?

Answer to answer two: how is the dragon-nicheling supposed to attack with the inner wing-claws?

1. On most dragons, they are.

2. Well, I guess that wouldn't make sense. But if they are connected to front limbs, there would be dragon talons that would give the strength.

In Skyrim, dragons do a pretty good wing smash. But these are actually Wyverns, anyway. Not to mention spines

(Are those inner-wing claws?

Note the small talon...

But a good portion of the fight is throwback generated when landing, or pushing enemies away. They don't bat or slash with much intent, but it's going to hurt.

well I did and I am just asking does it cause the environment to catch fire?

It doesn't. However, if there are any fire breathing predators added, they could be able to set the environment on fire for the purpose of killing the nichelings.
