Question, if my Stryx has not been trained yet, but has hunting/fishing/scavenging pieces already done. Can I submit them to be rolled, after I finished its training?

Yes, you may wait as long as you like to submit activities to be rolled in order to ascend status, acquire training, equip companions, etc.

Activities are rolled according to when they're submitted to the Activities journal, not when they're submitted to dA itself.  It's quite common for people to use hunting/fishing/etc entries to gain AP and wait until the Stryx is Ascended to roll the entries~

So in short; yes, you may wait until your Stryx's training is confirmed before submitting hunting/fishing entries (to clarify further, basic training does not give a bonus to scavenging at all)

Thanks a ton! I actually seen this in other ARPGs, just wasn’t sure if it’s allowed here. :)

Can NP mutations be applied to microstryx? :3

I believe the microstryx page said that there are no other feather mutations/np mutations currently available on microstryx? Like I mean no lineart edits? EDIT: I'm not completely sure, as the Bauble Boutique sells microstryx mutation tinctures... I honestly don't know now

The way it was written made me think passable mutations had yet to be "discovered", which to me means that breeding will eventually result in feather muts. *fingers crossed* It just didn't say anything about NP muts which is why I'm asking. ;D

How does one write the write down the order of the genotype and phenotype of a Semi stryx?

This is my Semi :

The easiest way is to plug the genetic chain into our breeding roller and then breed it to a Stryx that's dom in all the chosen genes for the phenotype.  For this Stryx it would be the following;

Genotype: ee/Aa/ss/nCs/nSbl/nSc/nMd/nSr/nCa/nDy
Phenotype: Twilight Scorched Cardinal Sable Soil with Crescent and Dye

One more question, can the stryx have purple eyes even if the Twilight is only effecting the rear? Or does it have to cover over the head to have purple eyes?
Reply
:iconethanoi:
ethanoI Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm pretty sure the marking has to be touching the eyes for that to occur, sorry.  However, you could use an Elixir of Eyes to create purple eyes even if Twilight isn't on the head~ You can buy one for 1,000 Baubles via The Bauble Boutique

I don't mean to sound impatient, but I am concerned that my stryx may have been skipped in the upload queue. ;m;

Paige was marked as "Pending" last week for assigning lineage, and while this was promptly taken care of, her status has not yet been updated to "Approved". Normally I would have absolutely no issue with this; waiting is no big deal. The real problem is that the add-ons I applied to her have already been marked as "Used", which really makes me nervous. Meanwhile, the two stryx posted after her with pending lineage have already been approved and uploaded.

Thank you, and I apologize if I sound like I'm whining or complaining, I'm just a little anxious. ;m; Please don't kill me. ^^;

If I commissioned someone to draw my Stryx (In DA and outside DA), will I gain AP from that drawing or not?

:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2019
Any art of your stryx will gain ap for that stryx, you just wont get the personal art bonus, however everything else can be applied. However if you commission artist outside of dA and they uploaded outside of dA, please make sure that they are fully linked back to the artist and art on your stryx's tracker ~Alri

Where's the best place to go if I think my stryx has been missed in the upload queue? (As in the bird is approved and all, but not uploaded.)

If you are in the Discord we have Skipped requests report channel.
You can also ask here. If you prefer not to join the Discord, you can also ask here. In that case, please link the Stryx in question.
Also, here are guidelines about how long to wait if you suspect your design approval is skipped.

DESIGN QUEUES
For the Salon, please wait 10 days before reporting a slow queue, and 1 week for skipped/pending requests.
For Approvals and Corrections, please wait 1 week for for skipped/pending requests, and don’t poke about queue speed. Remember that admins can't approve any stryx they designed, so if you are skipped by an admin and your stryx was designed by that admin, you should get a review shortly. Please remember that once your design is approved, it’s not uploaded right away. You’ll need to wait until the Upload team adds it to EyeOfGalyx.


IMPORT UPLOADS Imports are placed on the upload list in the order they were marked “Approved!” The order of upload isn’t necessarily the same order as comments on the Design Approval journal thread. Your stryx has not likely been skipped unless you see an import that was marked “Approved!” after your stryx get uploaded before your stryx. Before you ask if your import was skipped, please search EyeOfGalyx for it. If you don’t see it in EOG, poke.

I hope this helps!

So I have this unusual geno: 
Female - Common Raptor
Tail - Silky
Nocturnal - Healthy
ee/Aa/ss/nFr/nU/nPl/nD/nSbc // ee/Aa/ss/nFr/nU
HARLEQUIN Frosted Sunbleached Dual Soil with Pauldron and Unders // Frosted Soil with Unders

And I wanted to know what the "//" meant. It's like there are two phenotypes and I am confused lol
Reply
:iconihmislehma:
Ihmislehma Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
There indeed are two phenotypes! You have the mutation Harlequin on your Stryx. This mutation is related to Chimerism, but causes a very specific pattern of patchwork. It cleanly bisects the body, and can resemble a "checkerboard" pattern of opposing genos.
The "//" signifies where one phenotype ends and another starts.

charliebear442211 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you for responding but how would this geno be designed anyways, Does it all come together or are only certain pieces of the stryx done with the certain phenotype..? (Thanks beforehand!)
Reply
:iconihmislehma:
Ihmislehma Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, there are a couple of ways to go about designing this kid. One is to ask for someone to help.
But if you want to design yourself, here's what I've seen others do: they design both genos, then start erasing bits, until they get the pattern and look they want.
Our Discord server is very alive with people, so if you have Discord and want to ask for help there, that's also definitely an option.

I hope my explanation helps even a little ^^'' I've personally never designed a Chimeric Stryx.

If you can't find anyone, feel free to drop in my noters etc. I might be tempted to have a go at designing the kiddo.

I've got a ptero mutation with Flecked Soil with Helm geno, may I ask can I make wing color is the same color as their beak and feet?
I haven't seen many ptero around here, so I'm not sure ;w;

:iconihmislehma:
Ihmislehma Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Ptero mutation may either follow Beak, Feet, and Skin rules, or have the geno's base coat and markings present on this mutation as they  normally would otherwise.
