There's many ways to earn plants, including working on your lore, grinding in the coli, and doing self-care. Once you earn one, you can save the image to use like any badge:

Each plant comes with its "seed," a complete description of the plant (think of it as being like a dragon's breed, colors, genes, etc...) that's easy to store and copy-paste. yhNA2ysxuY is the seed for the plant above. You can just collect plant images as badges, of course, but their seeds let you use them in the garden generator (Brave Browser users, see here)! Copy-paste the seeds beneath this next image into the generator to try it out:

Feel free to keep those seeds to help you start your own garden. You can use seeds in the garden generator as many times as you like, so copy-paste a few times to add more plants! Try this set out:

I recommend storing your seed collection in a dragon bio or our handy seed collection spreadsheet.

There's more to do with the plants, if you like--you can combine them, trade them, use them in contests, all sorts of stuff. But there's no rush! For now, I wish you the best of luck, and that you'll make a garden you love :)

DO: hand-arrange plants/gardens!
DO: Trade them!
DO: Share a few with friends!

_____ DON'T: Resell or claim you made them!
DON'T: Hand them out en masse! Ex: dumping

DON'T: bother editing the plants. Request/contribute instead!

Examples: if you want to cut gardens up to make space for text, maybe add some vines hanging down, absolutely! Decorate a bio of a dragon you're selling? Yes! Make your own (free) challenge and say anyone who completes it can use a certain seed? Awesome!!! You just can't make money off the plants/generated gardens themselves without express permission.

Lore a Dragon
You can use the ID to Plant Generator to get a plant for any dragon you've written lore for. A few sentences is fine, it just has to be an honest effort! The tool works with user IDs too, so claim one for yourself.


Complete a Bingo Board
The linked thread offers endless bingo boards that reward you with plants.
  • Coli Board: do as many as you like! The bigger the board, the more plants you can get. The harder the board, the stranger the plants. The more tiles you clear on the board, the stranger the plants.
  • Self-Care Board: can be done once per day, gets new plants at midnight! You should be able to get any possible plant from it.

Check tasks off your To-Do List
Add your goals for the day (there are prompts on hover but they're 100% optional), pick the plant you want as your reward, and go! Every 5 tasks unlocks its own set of plants. At first, you can get ANY plant, and pick from 8; this is currently the only way to intentionally get duplicate seeds. Super handy with plant mixing! Your 11th task onward doesn't let you pick the plant, and the plants are more basic.


Join the pinglist
I'll notify people when I add more stuff to the pool/tools, and that comes with free samples! It's a self-editing one with three categories, I'll do freebs with the first two, and the third is for events that might reward seeds.


Mix your plants
You can recombine plants into something new! Plug two seeds in and hit the button til you get something you like. Once you get something you want to keep, remove the two parent seeds from your collection and enjoy!


Make Gardens & Trade Seeds
Please share your gardens on this thread! If I showcase yours, I'll get you a seed of your choosing! You can also Make a Garden for a Dragon Above You; not only can you get garden art for your dragons, folks are encouraged to share seeds as "tips"! Besides that, feel free to use this thread to trade seeds.



a quick warning

The following ways of getting seeds are fairly complicated and/or in a beta state.



Host an event that supports Nature or the community
If you want to incentivize a program with plants (like giving a seed with every dragon sold to Nature, or including them in gift bombs), I'm more than happy to generate a batch for you!
Code:
@Oranitha seed batch request! [b]For[/b]: (link to program/event) [b]Count[/b]: (number of seeds, don't be shy, just discard unused ones!) [b]Theme notes[/b]: (extra blue? mostly mushrooms?)

I don't plan to charge unless it's a really crazy request (or I get swamped with orders somehow), and I'll throw in some for you personally as thanks for enriching the community :)

For non-Nature flight-specific support (read: dom), I'd charge and send funds back to Nature. I don't intend to exclude folks by flight, I'd just feel bad if I funded dom against my home! That's dom only though, festival writing contests and the like would still be supported for free.


Contribute a plant
See here for how that works. After adding a base, I'll generate a whole bunch of seeds for you to do whatever you like with, including reselling them.

Everything's better down where it's wetter

Want to put your work in the catalog? Ping me!
  • 32x32 pixels max and hosted to Imgur. Transparent .png preferred. No gifs, sadly (not for a long while, at least). Nigel for reference: zYolkmE.png
  • You can test them using the sprite tester!
  • Currently 0 charge to add things to the catalog, may change (it's a slight pain in the keister)
  • Having your own dedicated shopfront is supported to ex: control when things are offered, tell me where to link
  • Preview image should be 80x80 and show the sprite at 2x scale (max 64x64) to match how it'll show up in a garden. FYI: the bench preview is 1.5sec per frame, but you don't need to match that.
  • Usual disclaimer: I reserve the right to not include things in the catalog at my discretion. Most likely way this would come into play is with a really "basic" item (!crate, !table...) being put up for a price (since I try to cover those in the conservation set) or something that's really obviously FR intellectual property.

[center][b][size=6]Advanced Info[/size][/b][/center] "Collect plants and make gardens" is 99% of the program, but there's some advanced stuff to play with if you like...you probably don't need to read all of this, but if you want to, feel free to claim any seed you find in it! [size=5][b]Using with Brave Browser[/b][/size] TL;DR: turn the shield off, it glitches out on this tool. Read on for security thonks! [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/287xoIx.png[/img] [size=2][i]The main symptom of the "bug"--you'll see patches of the default colors showing through, visible as bright green and beet pink (especially on the mushroom)[/center] Big thanks to Necralisk for helping me hunt this down! So, Brave browser comes with a "shields up" mode that alters how web pages behave. Without getting too far into how the garden tools work (more on that below), rather than having a .png of every possible color for each plant (how FR works, I believe), I replace colors from a base image by dynamically swapping palettes. This helps me run the tool without needing true hosting (otherwise each plant would require me uploading some 140 files to imgur). So I'm looking for a pixel to have the EXACT color that says "swap me!" While Brave has its shield up, pixels at random...don't! My guess is that this is caused by a feature intended to foil something called [url=https://browserleaks.com/canvas]canvas fingerprinting[/url] by mucking with how an image is rendered in a way that's invisible to the human eye. This is a great way to deal with canvas fingerprinting! But it [url=https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/wiki/Fingerprinting-Protection-Mode]does break things[/url], especially things like this tool. No salt on the Brave devs--it's a great security choice more often than not! But yeah, I am one of the things it breaks, and as far as I can tell, this is an inherent conflict, with nothing I can do on my end (besides buying a server and autogenerating plant components). So I'm afraid you do have to turn the shield off to use the tool normally. On the bright side, this is completely open source! You can verify I don't send data anywhere. Of course, you can also leave the shield on for the spicy glitch effect. It looks pretty cool with cyan plants :) Try it out (and keep the seed!): CQcdLCHTDo [size=5][b]Adding plant bases[/b][/size] This tool's a community effort, and many of our loveliest bases are donated. If you're considering contributing, thank you, and read on! [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/Sno6Umh.png[/img][/center] As with dragons, there's three swappable colors to each base. Instead of [primary, secondary, tertiary], it's [foliage, feature, accent]. Each has a palette consisting of four shades. When a plant is generated, those palettes (the green, pink, and yellow above, respectively) are swapped for new palettes. You can use colors outside those palettes of course, they just won't be swapped. Great for stuff like a mossy rock where you want the rock to stay the same color. The three each draw from a slightly different palette pool. Foliage has more greens, feature has more browns and greys, and accent has more bright colors. [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/REi5BUZ.png[/img][/center] There's also a system similar to apparel, but it takes colors directly from the plant. The code checks for special marker pixels and replaces them with "components" like flowers. There are "complex" components (shown above, orange marker) and "simple" ones (not shown as they work the exact same way, but they're much smaller and simpler, like a single berry, and use a purple marker). The max size of any sprite is 32x32. They're scaled up x2 for a final max size of 64x64 to get that nice chunky pixel look. For the easiest time, use [url=https://i.imgur.com/q2YoJVP.png]this base[/url], which includes the palettes and marker pixels. And thank you! <3 You can test any new sprite with the [url=https://oriwritesaplugin.github.io/EndlessGarden/sprite_tester.html]sprite tester[/url]. If it all looks alright, I'll validate the seeds and add the base and a credit to the tool. Let me know what name you want credited under! For example, this seed comes from a beautiful base by Xaotician: CVCpTB-XV5 (go ahead and claim it!). Quality control: I do need to make sure submitted bases match what we already have. Here's some examples of things that very, very nearly made it in: [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/F7BxP2v.png[/img][img]https://i.imgur.com/mYqerCS.png[/img][/center] I needed to communicate the cylindrical-ness of a tree trunk without losing the jaggedness, and the jaggedness without making it look a little goofy and flat, but it just wasn't quite working. The solution here was easy--playing with the shape until this one became the stump-with-leaves base! :) [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/nO9rpi5.png[/img][img]https://i.imgur.com/ZwMlSPB.png[/img][/center] The poor little dude looks fine on their own, but when put in the context of other plants, the leaves look a bit weird, more like plastic knives with chunks out of them...in retrospect, dithering might work? This was an attempted redesign of an existing base, so I just went back to the old one. For now :) If you're new, please don't be intimidated! Those plants were RIGHT on the cusp of working, which is why they're still in, just in slightly different forms. I've drawn some veeeery janky art (and some of it's in the tool anyways) (gonna fix it eventually I promise <3). There's also some amazing people on the thread who can help, and I'm happy to help with refinements too. Give it a go! [size=5][b]Advanced garden generator use[/b][/size] Pasting in plant/catalog seeds is only the start! There's plenty of ways to further control and tweak your garden. [size=4][b]Layering[/b][/size] The first (leftmost) seed in the list is the first to be placed down, then second-leftmost, etc. That means that if you paste in a tree seed, then 20 seeds for grass after (to the right) of it, all that grass will be "in front of" the tree (just like when you layer apparel on a dragon). [size=4][b]Smart Spacing[/b][/size] This simply tries to spread plants with similar heights out. So your tall plants will try to stay away from tall plants, short plants from short plants, but short and tall will intermingle. Of course, this only works until you run out of space to spread them out in, at which point they'll be placed randomly (which is how they're placed if smart spacing is off). [size=4][b]Scrambling[/b][/size] This button will let your plants swap places. With Smart Spacing on, tall plants will only swap with tall plants, etc. Use this if you like the general "silhouette" of a garden, but want to see things mixed up a bit. [size=4][b]Ground Control[/b][/size] By default, gardens generate with grass. Use "pick ground" to select a groundcover (including none). Any groundcover with the word [palette] next to its name will choose color(s) from one of your plants! The "reroll ground" button will change which plant the colors come from. [size=4][b]Overlays[/b][/size] Overlays are exactly what they sound like, layers of color that go over things in your garden. Easier shown than said: [center][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/959662576541790291/1001607514779045888/unknown.png[/img][/center] All those cacti share a seed (CJMfbCEQbf, claim away!), but some are beneath an overlay. Using overlays is pretty simple, just add a #hexcode in between seeds, and it'll overlay anything beneath it (to its left in the seed list). You can add a %opacity after it to control how opaque it is. In addition to hex codes, there's a few named colors (default, black, white, red, ocean, murk, midday, etc). Try it out: [code] #default%100,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,#default%50, CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,#default%30, CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf, CJMfbCEQbf,#default%50,CJMfbCEQbf[/code] One special note: if an overlay is the last thing in the list of seeds, it'll apply to the groundcover as well! Super useful for underwater scenes. Also, overlays only apply to things in the garden, not the background, to make editing easier. Unless it's the first thing in the list! Try removing that #default%100 above to see. [size=4][b]Wildcards[/b][/size] These let you create your own temporary catalog item! They're mostly used for adding an image of your dragon(s) to a garden. [img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/959662576541790291/1027697381799637102/unknown.png[/img] Any image provided will be sized down to 32x32, then up to 64x64, meaning it should fit alright with the garden aesthetic. To use, just preface the "name" for your temporary item with *, just like catalog items start with !. For example, *my_dragon. When you hit generate, a dialog will pop up to paste in a URL. Now, anyplace the garden sees *my_dragon, it'll insert that picture. [b]NOTE:[/b] Due to FR's CORS settings (something I can't touch), you'll need to use an intermediary host like Imgur for dragon pictures. Of course, you could also use pixel-style adopts (if the artist's OK with it), or try posting the picture to Discord (Discord is [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/adopt/3112071/62#post_52435076]finicky[/url] though). [size=4][b]Outlines[/b][/size] Displaying your garden on a white background (read: on most of FR)? Consider adding an outline! [center][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/959662576541790291/1020739342026674247/unknown.png[/img] [img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/959662576541790291/1021446936861081650/unknown.png[/img][/center] There's a checkbox for it below the seed list. It'll draw a 1px-wide outline around all your plants, and by default it'll be colored based on the closest pixel. However, if you specified a background color (see the "Overlays" section), the outline will be solidly that color. You can use, say, #00FFFF%0 to have "no" background but a cyan outline. [size=4][b]Positioning Plants[/b][/size] You can precisely position your plants by adding a %ofwidth after the seed. So %50 would put the plant at 50% of your garden's with (that is to say, at the halfway point). Like this: [center][img]https://i.imgur.com/wPa673N.gif[/img][/center] Try it out (and grab CWLnnCFYuB, C7XwKBxK+m, and CBkTrCLgWF for your own use): [code]#default%100,CWLnnCFYuB, CBkTrCLgWF%40, !nigel%50, CBkTrCLgWF%65, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, C7XwKBxK+m[/code] Obviously you can't move overlays left or right, which is why they can both use %. I don't love that it's context-sensitive, might replace that with something clearer if I can think of one. [size=4][b]Misc. Additional Tips[/b][/size] [LIST] [*]Claim: exports the garden to a new tab so you can easily copy the image. I like to paste them into Discord or Imgur. You probably figured that one out already, though! It also outputs a garden "code" (beta) that saves the positions of all plants. [*]The seed list ignores spaces. Use spaces to separate out clumps of seeds so you can easily see and edit how many plants of a type there are. [*]Seeds are [b]case sensitive[/b] and can have any letter, any number, +, and -. Honestly I recommend copy-pasting them over trying to type them. [*]Use [url=https://oriwritesaplugin.github.io/EndlessGarden/garden_utils.html]"Display collection"[/url] in conjunction with the garden [/LIST] [size=5][b]Custom Seeds[/b][/size] Now and again, you'll see me ask someone what they want as a "custom seed". Basically, if you do something that helps the tool (like having a garden showcased or finding a bug), or do something nice and I see you doing it + know you collect plants, I'll happily make you a seed to your specifications--feel free to be as specific (midnight blue birch) or broad (Ora's choice) as you like! With smaller/broader requests, you might get two seeds. Also, whatever parameters you don't specify, I do try to make them nice :) [size=5][b]IFAQ (InFrequently asked questions)[/b][/size] [b]Why does my plant look slightly different?[/b] If you're using Brave browser, see the top of this post. Otherwise...plants actually vary slightly within a seed. There's a flower generation system, and if a plant can support flowers, each flower it can have has a chance to [i]not[/i] appear. It's done to add visual interest (like if you have a whole bunch of flowering grass), so if you post a bunch of copies of a seed in a garden and they all have flowers in different places, that's what's going on. [b]I'm looking for a specific color and not finding it[/b] There's a few things that could be up! We've got (at time of writing) north of 70 palettes, so odds are you won't find a specific one right away. And while 70 is a lot, there's still gaps. The sneakiest reason is that our colors work differently from FR's, because they map to foliage, "feature" (trunks, stone), and accent. While most colors overall can go to all three, the sheer number of greens we need to support different environments means that a universal color wheel would lead to a [i]lot[/i] of green trunks and flowers. Similarly, there's a lot of browns and greys you probably don't want in your flowers, and extremely bright, saturated colors that look good on flowers but unnatural and plasticky as foliage. So there are some colors (mostly greens) that won't show up on other parts of the plants. You're not too likely to notice, though, unless you need specifically [i]swamp[/i] green flowers. When in doubt, ask! [b]Easy bingo keeps giving me grass. Also all of it's brown and green. What's up?/Are some plants/colors rarer than others[/b] There's an internal rarity system! It's there for stuff like the bingo boards (so that you can get funkier plants for harder challenges), but a brief overview is that bases and colors are sorted into common/uncommon/rare. Rarer bases tend to be bigger and stranger. Rarer colors tend to be multi-tonal or based on "exotic materials", such as obsidian. To be clear though, it's not [i]really[/i] an odds-based system, it's just a matter of whether whatever you're using has a high enough rarity to "unlock" the parts. Rarity isn't included in seeds or anything, and I don't display it because I'd prefer the plants to stand on aesthetic value alone. Fun fact: the dragon-id-to-seed generator has access to [b]all[/b] bases and palettes, as do self-care bingo and the to-do list. There's also a small selection of "special" bases that are much more similar to other RNG shop's notion of rarity. Special bases only have 1/5 of the chance of appearing compared to a non-special base. That's done to add some extra flavor; if you want guaranteed access to them, check the seed swap. [b]Is this affiliated with anything? Dom?[/b] Nope, just a horribly complex personal project [b]Why is this page so long help[/b] Please accept this small thanks for reading my horrible text blob: [font=monospace] zps4g+71dN[/font] [b]How many plants/palettes are there?[/b] The total number of possible plants is difficult to calculate since not all bases use all colors/features, but it's somewhere in the millions. Total number of plant bases is > 100. Total number of palettes is >70. I don't maintain an exact list for spoilers reasons; I made this tool in part because I struggle to form habits, and a sense of delight and discovery helps me muscle through that. So I want people to be able to discover new bases and colors for quite awhile, just in case they struggle the same way. In case you want to skip round that, look around a bit...at time of writing, there's a community-maintained list that's very well put together..... [b]I have two plants that look identical, but the seeds are different. Did something break?[/b] Nope! Not all plants use all parts of their seed; in fact, some (like this little guy, feel free to claim: CWK+DCE1ph) use only use one color and no features. The "unused" traits are still in play when combining plants, though, just like a basic tert dragon passes on its tert color! This is also why the grass might turn an "unexpected" color; one of your plants has an unused foliage palette, and the grass is borrowing it! :) [b]How "stable" are seeds?[/b] What it would take to break the seeds is me needing to store more plant data. If that happened, I could make an old->new converter that fills the new data slot with a randomly-chosen value to keep the seed valid (think of it like the fabled quaternary dragon color/gene). You should still save images you like though. Always do backups!!! There's also a not-really-break case wherein you might use the seed and notice the plant looks a little bit different. That's because I'm still improving my pixel art, so I might upload a "fixed" sprite. Though I do try to be good about testing stuff before I push it, and any changes should be minor, or at least in the spirit of the OG sprite. Think fixed shading, or a few pixels moved to make a leaf look less stiff. [b][i]Why[/i][/b] Oh neat, a soapbox I put here myself! Nah, I know this is [i]concerningly[/i] overengineered for a free browser-based support tool living in the forums of a pixel dragon capitalism sim. But I write/code for a living, and the nature of the work means it'll never be "finished". I do love my job, but if I don't occasionally make fun stuff with a tight but challenging scope, I'll combust. FR has an overall lovely community I feel comfortable working in, so you guys have long had to deal with the [url=https://oriwritesaplugin.github.io/FR-Miscellany/achievementgen.html]products[/url], for [url=https://frlorebook.fandom.com/wiki/The_Rootbed]better[/url] or [url=https://oriwritesaplugin.github.io/FR-Miscellany/prompy.html]worse[/url]. This wasn't created on any sort of commission or grant or anything (I hate to think what I'd charge to make this) or even by request. It's free because I want as many folks to have a chance to use it as possible. [b]I have questions[/b] Find me on the Nature Discord if you want to chat live, especially about horrible code spaghetti. Or just ping me here.

Using with Brave Browser
TL;DR: turn the shield off, it glitches out on this tool. Read on for security thonks!
287xoIx.png

The main symptom of the "bug"--you'll see patches of the default colors showing through,
visible as bright green and beet pink (especially on the mushroom)

Big thanks to Necralisk for helping me hunt this down! So, Brave browser comes with a "shields up" mode that alters how web pages behave. Without getting too far into how the garden tools work (more on that below), rather than having a .png of every possible color for each plant (how FR works, I believe), I replace colors from a base image by dynamically swapping palettes. This helps me run the tool without needing true hosting (otherwise each plant would require me uploading some 140 files to imgur). So I'm looking for a pixel to have the EXACT color that says "swap me!" While Brave has its shield up, pixels at random...don't!

My guess is that this is caused by a feature intended to foil something called canvas fingerprinting by mucking with how an image is rendered in a way that's invisible to the human eye. This is a great way to deal with canvas fingerprinting! But it does break things, especially things like this tool.

No salt on the Brave devs--it's a great security choice more often than not! But yeah, I am one of the things it breaks, and as far as I can tell, this is an inherent conflict, with nothing I can do on my end (besides buying a server and autogenerating plant components). So I'm afraid you do have to turn the shield off to use the tool normally. On the bright side, this is completely open source! You can verify I don't send data anywhere. Of course, you can also leave the shield on for the spicy glitch effect. It looks pretty cool with cyan plants :) Try it out (and keep the seed!): CQcdLCHTDo



Adding plant bases
This tool's a community effort, and many of our loveliest bases are donated. If you're considering contributing, thank you, and read on!
Sno6Umh.png

As with dragons, there's three swappable colors to each base. Instead of [primary, secondary, tertiary], it's [foliage, feature, accent]. Each has a palette consisting of four shades. When a plant is generated, those palettes (the green, pink, and yellow above, respectively) are swapped for new palettes.

You can use colors outside those palettes of course, they just won't be swapped. Great for stuff like a mossy rock where you want the rock to stay the same color.

The three each draw from a slightly different palette pool. Foliage has more greens, feature has more browns and greys, and accent has more bright colors.
REi5BUZ.png
There's also a system similar to apparel, but it takes colors directly from the plant. The code checks for special marker pixels and replaces them with "components" like flowers. There are "complex" components (shown above, orange marker) and "simple" ones (not shown as they work the exact same way, but they're much smaller and simpler, like a single berry, and use a purple marker).

The max size of any sprite is 32x32. They're scaled up x2 for a final max size of 64x64 to get that nice chunky pixel look. For the easiest time, use this base, which includes the palettes and marker pixels. And thank you! <3

You can test any new sprite with the sprite tester. If it all looks alright, I'll validate the seeds and add the base and a credit to the tool. Let me know what name you want credited under! For example, this seed comes from a beautiful base by Xaotician: CVCpTB-XV5 (go ahead and claim it!).

Quality control: I do need to make sure submitted bases match what we already have. Here's some examples of things that very, very nearly made it in:
F7BxP2v.pngmYqerCS.png

I needed to communicate the cylindrical-ness of a tree trunk without losing the jaggedness, and the jaggedness without making it look a little goofy and flat, but it just wasn't quite working. The solution here was easy--playing with the shape until this one became the stump-with-leaves base! :)
nO9rpi5.pngZwMlSPB.png

The poor little dude looks fine on their own, but when put in the context of other plants, the leaves look a bit weird, more like plastic knives with chunks out of them...in retrospect, dithering might work? This was an attempted redesign of an existing base, so I just went back to the old one. For now :)


If you're new, please don't be intimidated! Those plants were RIGHT on the cusp of working, which is why they're still in, just in slightly different forms. I've drawn some veeeery janky art (and some of it's in the tool anyways) (gonna fix it eventually I promise <3). There's also some amazing people on the thread who can help, and I'm happy to help with refinements too. Give it a go!



Advanced garden generator use

Pasting in plant/catalog seeds is only the start! There's plenty of ways to further control and tweak your garden.

Layering
The first (leftmost) seed in the list is the first to be placed down, then second-leftmost, etc. That means that if you paste in a tree seed, then 20 seeds for grass after (to the right) of it, all that grass will be "in front of" the tree (just like when you layer apparel on a dragon).

Smart Spacing
This simply tries to spread plants with similar heights out. So your tall plants will try to stay away from tall plants, short plants from short plants, but short and tall will intermingle. Of course, this only works until you run out of space to spread them out in, at which point they'll be placed randomly (which is how they're placed if smart spacing is off).

Scrambling
This button will let your plants swap places. With Smart Spacing on, tall plants will only swap with tall plants, etc. Use this if you like the general "silhouette" of a garden, but want to see things mixed up a bit.

Ground Control
By default, gardens generate with grass. Use "pick ground" to select a groundcover (including none). Any groundcover with the word [palette] next to its name will choose color(s) from one of your plants! The "reroll ground" button will change which plant the colors come from.

Overlays
Overlays are exactly what they sound like, layers of color that go over things in your garden. Easier shown than said:
unknown.png

All those cacti share a seed (CJMfbCEQbf, claim away!), but some are beneath an overlay. Using overlays is pretty simple, just add a #hexcode in between seeds, and it'll overlay anything beneath it (to its left in the seed list). You can add a %opacity after it to control how opaque it is. In addition to hex codes, there's a few named colors (default, black, white, red, ocean, murk, midday, etc). Try it out:
Code:
#default%100,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,#default%50, CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,#default%30, CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf,CJMfbCEQbf, CJMfbCEQbf,#default%50,CJMfbCEQbf
One special note: if an overlay is the last thing in the list of seeds, it'll apply to the groundcover as well! Super useful for underwater scenes. Also, overlays only apply to things in the garden, not the background, to make editing easier. Unless it's the first thing in the list! Try removing that #default%100 above to see.

Wildcards
These let you create your own temporary catalog item! They're mostly used for adding an image of your dragon(s) to a garden.
unknown.png
Any image provided will be sized down to 32x32, then up to 64x64, meaning it should fit alright with the garden aesthetic. To use, just preface the "name" for your temporary item with *, just like catalog items start with !. For example, *my_dragon. When you hit generate, a dialog will pop up to paste in a URL. Now, anyplace the garden sees *my_dragon, it'll insert that picture.

NOTE: Due to FR's CORS settings (something I can't touch), you'll need to use an intermediary host like Imgur for dragon pictures. Of course, you could also use pixel-style adopts (if the artist's OK with it), or try posting the picture to Discord (Discord is finicky though).

Outlines
Displaying your garden on a white background (read: on most of FR)? Consider adding an outline!
unknown.png
unknown.png
There's a checkbox for it below the seed list. It'll draw a 1px-wide outline around all your plants, and by default it'll be colored based on the closest pixel. However, if you specified a background color (see the "Overlays" section), the outline will be solidly that color. You can use, say, #00FFFF%0 to have "no" background but a cyan outline.

Positioning Plants
You can precisely position your plants by adding a %ofwidth after the seed. So %50 would put the plant at 50% of your garden's with (that is to say, at the halfway point). Like this:
wPa673N.gif

Try it out (and grab CWLnnCFYuB, C7XwKBxK+m, and CBkTrCLgWF for your own use):
Code:
#default%100,CWLnnCFYuB, CBkTrCLgWF%40, !nigel%50, CBkTrCLgWF%65, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, CWLnnCFYuB, C7XwKBxK+m

Obviously you can't move overlays left or right, which is why they can both use %. I don't love that it's context-sensitive, might replace that with something clearer if I can think of one.


Misc. Additional Tips
  • Claim: exports the garden to a new tab so you can easily copy the image. I like to paste them into Discord or Imgur. You probably figured that one out already, though! It also outputs a garden "code" (beta) that saves the positions of all plants.
  • The seed list ignores spaces. Use spaces to separate out clumps of seeds so you can easily see and edit how many plants of a type there are.
  • Seeds are case sensitive and can have any letter, any number, +, and -. Honestly I recommend copy-pasting them over trying to type them.
  • Use "Display collection" in conjunction with the garden


Custom Seeds
Now and again, you'll see me ask someone what they want as a "custom seed". Basically, if you do something that helps the tool (like having a garden showcased or finding a bug), or do something nice and I see you doing it + know you collect plants, I'll happily make you a seed to your specifications--feel free to be as specific (midnight blue birch) or broad (Ora's choice) as you like! With smaller/broader requests, you might get two seeds. Also, whatever parameters you don't specify, I do try to make them nice :)


IFAQ (InFrequently asked questions)


Why does my plant look slightly different?
If you're using Brave browser, see the top of this post. Otherwise...plants actually vary slightly within a seed. There's a flower generation system, and if a plant can support flowers, each flower it can have has a chance to not appear. It's done to add visual interest (like if you have a whole bunch of flowering grass), so if you post a bunch of copies of a seed in a garden and they all have flowers in different places, that's what's going on.


I'm looking for a specific color and not finding it
There's a few things that could be up! We've got (at time of writing) north of 70 palettes, so odds are you won't find a specific one right away. And while 70 is a lot, there's still gaps. The sneakiest reason is that our colors work differently from FR's, because they map to foliage, "feature" (trunks, stone), and accent. While most colors overall can go to all three, the sheer number of greens we need to support different environments means that a universal color wheel would lead to a lot of green trunks and flowers. Similarly, there's a lot of browns and greys you probably don't want in your flowers, and extremely bright, saturated colors that look good on flowers but unnatural and plasticky as foliage. So there are some colors (mostly greens) that won't show up on other parts of the plants. You're not too likely to notice, though, unless you need specifically swamp green flowers. When in doubt, ask!


Easy bingo keeps giving me grass. Also all of it's brown and green. What's up?/Are some plants/colors rarer than others
There's an internal rarity system! It's there for stuff like the bingo boards (so that you can get funkier plants for harder challenges), but a brief overview is that bases and colors are sorted into common/uncommon/rare. Rarer bases tend to be bigger and stranger. Rarer colors tend to be multi-tonal or based on "exotic materials", such as obsidian. To be clear though, it's not really an odds-based system, it's just a matter of whether whatever you're using has a high enough rarity to "unlock" the parts. Rarity isn't included in seeds or anything, and I don't display it because I'd prefer the plants to stand on aesthetic value alone. Fun fact: the dragon-id-to-seed generator has access to all bases and palettes, as do self-care bingo and the to-do list.

There's also a small selection of "special" bases that are much more similar to other RNG shop's notion of rarity. Special bases only have 1/5 of the chance of appearing compared to a non-special base. That's done to add some extra flavor; if you want guaranteed access to them, check the seed swap.


Is this affiliated with anything? Dom?
Nope, just a horribly complex personal project


Why is this page so long help
Please accept this small thanks for reading my horrible text blob: zps4g+71dN


How many plants/palettes are there?
The total number of possible plants is difficult to calculate since not all bases use all colors/features, but it's somewhere in the millions. Total number of plant bases is > 100. Total number of palettes is >70.

I don't maintain an exact list for spoilers reasons; I made this tool in part because I struggle to form habits, and a sense of delight and discovery helps me muscle through that. So I want people to be able to discover new bases and colors for quite awhile, just in case they struggle the same way. In case you want to skip round that, look around a bit...at time of writing, there's a community-maintained list that's very well put together.....


I have two plants that look identical, but the seeds are different. Did something break?
Nope! Not all plants use all parts of their seed; in fact, some (like this little guy, feel free to claim: CWK+DCE1ph) use only use one color and no features. The "unused" traits are still in play when combining plants, though, just like a basic tert dragon passes on its tert color! This is also why the grass might turn an "unexpected" color; one of your plants has an unused foliage palette, and the grass is borrowing it! :)


How "stable" are seeds?
What it would take to break the seeds is me needing to store more plant data. If that happened, I could make an old->new converter that fills the new data slot with a randomly-chosen value to keep the seed valid (think of it like the fabled quaternary dragon color/gene). You should still save images you like though. Always do backups!!!

There's also a not-really-break case wherein you might use the seed and notice the plant looks a little bit different. That's because I'm still improving my pixel art, so I might upload a "fixed" sprite. Though I do try to be good about testing stuff before I push it, and any changes should be minor, or at least in the spirit of the OG sprite. Think fixed shading, or a few pixels moved to make a leaf look less stiff.


Why
Oh neat, a soapbox I put here myself! Nah, I know this is concerningly overengineered for a free browser-based support tool living in the forums of a pixel dragon capitalism sim. But I write/code for a living, and the nature of the work means it'll never be "finished". I do love my job, but if I don't occasionally make fun stuff with a tight but challenging scope, I'll combust. FR has an overall lovely community I feel comfortable working in, so you guys have long had to deal with the products, for better or worse. This wasn't created on any sort of commission or grant or anything (I hate to think what I'd charge to make this) or even by request. It's free because I want as many folks to have a chance to use it as possible.


I have questions
Find me on the Nature Discord if you want to chat live, especially about horrible code spaghetti. Or just ping me here.

Okay this is the actual last one. I have 8 posts!!! Enough!!!


To-do:
  • Make the shop header image say "AN Endless Garden". Maybe go nocaps for aesthetic.
  • Add "generate grass" tickbox to the generator so folks can make floating plants if they like
  • Add a willow tree and some plants with inherent flowers (vs. using the components system)
  • Do the bingo integration! It's important!!!
  • MORE BAMBOO
  • The aquatic selection's looking a bit slight. Maybe some sea sponges or something Maybe some fish now?
  • Actually write the recombinator
  • Test this stuff on Chrome (I'm real bad at page design if you haven't noticed)
  • Maybe add some more, richer purples and something yellow for Light
  • Speaking of, a goldenrod plant could be nice
  • Keep an eye out for opportunities to add more greens
  • I still think the lantern "plant" looks kind of sketch. Might be inherent to the design???
  • It'd be pretty tricky (art-wise), but I wonder if I could make a decent-looking autogenerated skybox?
  • Add OPTIONAL autocrop functionality to the plant outputter, NOT the garden exporter!!! Do not autocrop the gardens!!! Fixed height so they're easy to stack.
  • More ferns more ferns more ferns
  • Figure out more stuff for all the flights. WHAT GROWS IN EARTH. THERE ARE NO PLANTS IN FIRE.
  • "Smart spacing" is a GO
  • Some sort of seed storage mechanism (sadly I'm trash at aesthetic Google Sheets, but I could at least do some kind of like...columns-to-seed-showcase thing)
  • Fix that "bug" with scramble after toggling smart gen...should probably just regenerate
  • Garden width
  • Make the garden width box look less bad
  • Fix plants floating a few pixels when grass is off
  • More Wind plants
