Is the midnight marking always black, or can it be the colour it says on the geno? for example, my one says Midnight Snow.

Snow is the base colour, and Mid night is the marking. You will have to follow Midnight's markings rules. ~Alri

im a bit confused about the galyx gene
are we allowed to pick colors from the two sliders? For example: soil and picking red from on slider and green from the other to blend together

I ask because I see some stryx like this:

Questions are encouraged to be asked in the Frequently Asked Questions

As for the answer - as long as you're using the proper base Galyx sliders (like Snow), you can mix two colors from the separate sliders. You can't mix sliders of two base coats (like Nox and Soil) together.

I hope this answer makes sense!

I'm not sure about the 'scalloped tail', is that a mutation/colour or just a type of tail? I can't find it anywhere
EDIT: Nevermind I found it :)

Hello! So my Geno is Midnight soil and that is all he is. I am not sure what color to use? Also, since there are different colors for soil, could I use more than one on him as coloration?

:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2019
You can pick from any of the soil sliders, however the base coat colour of the must be a solid colour. Midnight marking does make it so you have a dark gradient down the front of the bird. ~Alri

if you have a colour modifier like jay and it does not have to be fully opaque can this be used to make a less saturated but even colour by having a semi transparent overlay on top of the base colour say soil 
Reply

Yes. Minimum opacity is 45% I believe

Question! My geno has the Jay modifier, if it modifies the base color, what color would Shaded be?

Heyo! (I hid my previous reply whoops)
Shaded cannot be affected by color mods unfortunately!
In this case, Jay wont be able to affect the base with Shaded being present

Hello! I have a question. What does the Dom snow, Dom soil etc mean anyways? 
Reply
:iconsilverystormwing:
SilveryStormWing Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It means the base coat for Nox instead of being Ee/aa/ss, it is EE/aa/ss. This means that Nox will almost always pass, even when bred with soil. Same with snow and sand. It does not affect color ranges, just pass rates.

hi!!

unfortunately, admins are not allowed to answer “will this pass?” type questions outside of the design approvals/corrections official comments

of course you can always check the Tendril guide for what is or isn’t allowed! it’s been recently updated with new wording and a handful of uploaded examples, as well :3c

hi there!!

based on your geno and pheno information, your lass is Soil! that means you can colour-pick your base colour from your choice of the six Soil sliders we’ve provided at the top of this journal!

you can check the individual colour guidelines and rules for each marking by clicking on the appropriate link from the lists above!

i hope that gives you a bit of clarification to start you on the right path! of course if you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask! :3c

since there are now tail types, do old horned imports count as scalloped tail, or standard?

Scalloped. Silken and Royals also get Silky tails as well if they were pre-tail update genos =3

About the base coat, is it ok to add a very light gradient without a gene? I ask because the Stryx I'm currently designing is well kinda bland and with a gradient it actually adds the touch it needs. However if it isn't allowed I'll omit it.
Reply
:iconsilverystormwing:
SilveryStormWing Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A very, very slight gradient is allowed, I believe. But not an admin so not completely sure.

you will need a mutation potion of the respective rarity, and a major makeover kit ~Alri

Does this also apply to feather mutations, like silky or horned, on an uploaded design as well? Or are they permanent?

EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2019
The only thing that can not be changed on an already uploaded stryx is sex and Breed. As long as you have the coat change/ marking addon and the Major makeover kit, then you can change your stryx. Also keep in mind that its a max of 8 markings on a stryx

You can add a marking to a stryx using marking add ons that you can get from event sales I beleive, and there’s a cleansing elixir in the token tavern to remove a mark, if that’s what you mean
(not a mod btw, so I could be wrong)

Excuse me, is it possible for a stryx to have all base color genes recessive (ee/aa/ss)? If yes, what color would said stryx be? Sorry if this question is redundant, I couldn't find it anywhere else.
Reply
:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2018
No. there must be an always active base coat. Full recessive coats are not possible. ~Alri

Can my import have any chosen Marking/mutations? Or does is have to fallow somewhat what the Markings/mutations of the parents?
Reply
:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2018
An import must follow what is on the geno. so if the geno says it's a "Soil with blanket" then you are getting the soil base with blanket. the Only exception to this is the free marks which can be added to any geno.

What if a Stryx has both lowercase ee/aa?  What colors would that be?  Since I can't find anything about it.
Reply
:icondarkclawofsharkclan:
DarkclawOfSharkclan Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2018
that means that those traits are recessive, it means they don't appear on the stryx, but has a chance of appearing on there offspring.
