Savvy's Guide to Neon Creatures

Today, I'll be showing you how to make neons, because I've wanted to figure it out for at least a year, probably more, and I learned how last night.

...What? No. Get that crap outta here.

I'm talking about THESE THINGS. These psychedelic rainbows. Some look more unholy than others.

Alright, you know how a standard creature has all these pigment bleed genes? The first three show at birth, while the remaining six appear at adolescence, and a different set activates for each gender. Set those to activate at birth (Embryo) for both genders. Then, pick a slider and set it to zero for all nine genes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but either one will do, just as long as all nine genes have it set to zero.

It kind of messes with the way pigments work, so don't be afraid to experiment with that.

Simple, right? If you didn't miss any genes, you …

Something New
