    [The site REFUSES to let me post these as images, I'm sorry, must be doing something wrong!]

    IMPORTANT!!!!!! - Be sure to drag the 'character' folder and drop it into your main Dragon's Prophet folder, where the launchers are located. Be sure that when you get the file downloaded, drag those files out of the zip onto your desktop

    Extract the archive and put the "character" folder into the main folder where the launcher is.

    Onyx Fortune - Fixed the lack of a face altogether, and made it look a little bit more like an eastern dragon in the face, added some color to it as well.

    before - https://ibb.co/cO5EJ6
    after - https://ibb.co/cCaQQm


    Dropbox - Onyx Fortune.7z - https://www.dropbox.com/s/3v6v1bdgenaqaf9/Onyx%20Fortune.7z?dl=0
    Most of the textures are still the same, all aside from the face, this one gave me an extremely difficult time and I couldn't improve it further the way I had wanted to. In some areas the model stretched the textures and made it a blue which was pretty frustrating, so don't worry about this being 'heavy' on performance if you have a lower end computer.

    You should propose your re-textures as new dragons for the game... You really make beautiful things! This would also keep the original dragons.
    Thank you for your work! I just love it!

    A lot of the Assaults are already retextured but just not uploaded.
    Easterns are on my to-do list next
    Phantoms
    and then more "common" dragons.

    However, I believe people were told to cease retexturing dragons, at least without asking first.
    Please respect Seiichi's request.

    Edit: Nope I finished my Assault textures. I forgot I needed to finish up my Duskreavers.
    A lot of Sovi's textures are worth keeping. Contact me on Discord, it may take the load off my shoulders a bit to have someone else covering common dragons.

    Al right, I'm going to say this now : Seiichi never once made it clear that I know of that dragons were not to be retextured until asking him first. You can't respect a request that was never made in the first place in any clear manner that I know of. I did not see this anywhere and I asked before I made these textures MULTIPLE TIMES. I have MORE than been respectful about putting these textures up, and I asked yet again last night.

    The issue was more that originally it was one person doing re-textures, who we began to work with, then DarkFang started doing textures and decided by himself to release a simple method to do so. From there people began talking about recolors and doing all their own dragons and the like, and that is where the problem comes about.

    At this point in time, I cannot honestly tell people to not retexture, and I've said only that we will not support these re-textures. Not because they're bad, but because there will not be a consistent quality with the ones that are done by hand by Motoko and because arbitrary decisions have been made to recolor or change dragons without discussing it with the staff. When we finish updating all the textures, and begin adding our own dragons, we will probably change things so that fan re-textures aren't possible.

    So long story short, I will not tell you to not retexture dragons. I will ask that people not make changes to dragons as they see fit, and to not make free dragons look like marketplace dragons so as to not hurt the server. It would have been better if there had been an offer to our team to help re-texture things rather than choosing to release them as you wish, but what is done is done.
