TOPIC | Confirmed Gene Errors
These are the list of currently confirmed gene errors. These errors have been reported in the forums by players, then checked by the Flight Rising team against other dragons and by checking the original PSD files.

Many genes have accommodations for dragon anatomy where one breed is every so slightly different than others because it worked better for them. These are not considered errors.

These errors are just that - errors and inconsistencies. Given time we will work to implement corrections. Please note that if we find additional errors not listed here, we will add them to this list and correct them as well.
  • Any gene artwork that is completely missing or transparent - if there's a missing file, that is never intended and is likely the result of our recolor engine having a hiccup when it saved out the color.
  • Iridescent and Shimmer with Black Linework - The original 67 colors on site for iridescent were colored by hand without using a tint across the line work on some breeds. This is not intended. For an example check out fae dragons with an original color, particularly a light one where the black shows up. (sky iridescent/sky shimmer is a good example on faes of the black line issue)
  • Iridescent and Shimmer with Blown out Highlights - The blown out highlights are present on several species when the recolor update was out. They will often blow out to white, rather than a tint of the color and/or have extreme edges. For an example, check out pearlcatcher dragons with fuschia iridescent/fuschia shimmer.
  • Iridescent and Shimmer will never be 100% consistent from breed to breed - This gene was unable to be converted to our recolor engine and still has to be colored, hue shifted, and have the opacity and intensity of the highlights done by hand. While So some green dragons may shift from yellow to green to blue, while others may shift from orange to yellow to green. This is not considered an error. What we are interested in correcting is clear errors and inconsistencies within the gene. We consider that errors to be black linework and overblown highlights. The former is objective. The latter is subjective and we will be working on the most egregious offenders. Some highlights that are intense, but not what we consider "blown out" may remain unchanged.
  • Banescale Spearmint Toxin - The wing pattern in banescales with spearmint toxin has the incorrect color code applied. Fixed
  • Banescale M Blue Ringlets - Blue Ringlets are completely missing from Banescale males. Fixed.
  • Banescale H, M Ringlets - Parts of the shadow layer on ringlets in Banescale hatchlings and males are not multiplied, resulting in solid tan patches among many colors. Fixed
  • Bogsneak H Multigaze - Multigaze on Bogsneak hatchlings has an eye that overlaps its fins, resulting in clipping with the secondary layer. Fixed. (Note: Clipping does happen between multi-gaze and line breaking tertiaries on ancients. That's a limitation of our layering system. This is a bit different as its clipping with the base line art, tertiary excluded, and is thus considered an error where the ancient dragons multi-gaze tert clips are not.)
  • Coatl H Mosaic - THe accent color/fade on the paws of coatl hatchlings with Mosaic are missing. This accent color is present in all other dragons and the other poses of coatl. Fixed.
  • Coatl M Fade - Fade on coatl male poses doesn't have the dual layered nose that all other dragons do, including the other poses in its own breed. The outermost fade is missing on the nose. Fixed.
  • Fae M/F Seraph - The seraph markings on the head frills are missing in the adult artwork. THis art is present in the hatchling.
  • Gaoler Nightshade Shardflank - has the incorrect highlight color for nightshade. This affects Nightshade only, as the color code for it was incorrect.
  • Gaoler M Runes - The small section of horn that peeks out behind the wing on Gaoler males isn't colored in on the runes gene, leading to two colored horns.
  • Gaoler M Stained - Latte stained is missing for Gaoler Males and results in a broken image. This needs to be replaced.
  • Gaoler Underbelly - There is a light colored pixelated edge on all gaoler underbellies where the tail meets the body that needs to be tidied up.
  • Guardian F Glimmer - The Glimmer gene bleeds faintly into both of a guardian female's back legs when applied.
  • Guardian F Koi - There is a stray pixel on the back hind foot near where it meets the tail on Guardians females who have the koi tertiary.
  • Guardian F Petals - The Guardian females have a gradient layer present in their belly section that is not present in any other breed combination or in the other guardian petals artwork.
  • Guardian H Okapi - The Okapi tertiary is missing from Guardian hatchlings' hind legs.
  • Imperial F Tapir - Imperial females with the tapir gene have a stripe that clips into the belly color behind their rear legs.
  • Imperial H Piebald - Imperial hatchlings with piebald have a small spot of color that clips outside the dragon, beneath its closest hind leg.
  • Imperial H Stripes - The stripes gene on Imperial hatchlings is set to multiply, resulting in different colors from any other dragon breed and its own adult versions.
  • Imperial H Lionfish - The back leg that's farthest from us on Imperial hatchlings with the lionfish primary is colored a solid color rather than having the pattern that is present on all other dragons and the adult versions of its own breed.
  • Imperial M Tiger - The tiger gene on Imperial males cuts off the stripes abruptly on the hind leg that's furthest from the viewer.
  • Mirror F Tapir - The tapir markings clip into the head fins.
  • Mirror H Unusual Eyes - Lightning is currently using water's eye artwork for unusual hatchling eyes.
  • Nocturne Constellation - The frills on Nocturne Constellation have the shadow layer hidden beneath the fade or deleted altogether. This needs to be replaced so that it is no longer flat and matches all other genes.
  • Nocturne Flair - The frills on Nocturne Flair have the shadow layer hidden beneath the fade or deleted altogether. This needs to be replaced so that it is no longer flat and matches all other genes.
  • Nocturne M Thylacine - The thylacine gene clips from the wing into the farthest foreleg on Nocturne males.
  • Obelisk F Capsule - Obelisk females with the capsule tertiary have several pixels under their chin and on the tail behind their back leg that go beyond the bounds of the dragon and into the white space.
  • Obelisk F Lionfish and Noxtide - The fade colors in Obelisk Female Lionfish and Noxtide are swapped and need to be corrected.
  • Obelisk H Lionfish - The belly color on Obelisk Hatchling Lionfish primaries is incorrect.
  • Obelisk H Arcane Primal Eyes - Arcane primal eyes on Obelisk hatchlings are missing the eye highlight, leaving them flat.
  • Obelisk M Koi - The shadow layer on Obelisk M Koi was not labeled correctly and does not adapt to the color its on, always being a warm, rosy hue. It needs to be updated to match all the other dragons, including its own breed.
  • Obelisk Nightshade Gembond - has the incorrect color code applied to highlights.
  • Obelisk Runes - does not have the horns as part of the gene. This needs to be corrected to be brought in line with the rest of the breeds that exhibit this gene.
  • Obelisk Python/Morph - The darkest color on this gene is inconsistent with with other python and morph genes across other breeds ; however, it is following exactly what color codes were put into the recolor engine. So we're unsure why the color codes are different and are going to see if there's some way to find out what original colors codes were there. If push comes to shove we may need to sample existing breeds in photoshop and get color codes from the swatches, but finding the original codes would be more ideal.
  • Opal on Gaoler/Veilspun - Gaolers and Veilspun's opal gene has the highlight layer set to normal instead of screen, resulting in a more muddy opal with less sharp highlights.
  • Pearlcatcher F Lace - Pearlcatcher females with the lace tertiary have a stray couple pixels that bleed over from the wing to the body of the dragon.
  • Pearlcatcher M Edged - Edged markings clip from the wings into the tail on pearlcatcher males.
  • Pearlcatcher M Lace - The lace tertiary does not edge the back wing of Pearlcatcher males.
  • Pearlcatcher M Noxtide - Pearlcatcher males with the noxtide gene have a strange gradient present in their back wing, along where the arm would be. This appear to have been intended to be a fade to transparency to the primary color that was supposed to be set to multiply in photoshop but is unable to multiply in the generator.
  • Ridgeback M Ripple/Current - The ripple and current genes do not cover the front portion of a Ridgeback male's back wing.
  • Ridgeback M Mist Seraph - Mist Seraph on Ridgeback males has a miscolored portion of the wing.
  • Skydancer F Noxtide The reas of the gene where the shadow layer fades to transparency isn't clipped properly, resulting in an unmultiplied look around these portions.
  • Skydancer F Bee - The portion of bee on skydancer females that covers the "arm" of the wing as it transitions to the shoulder joint of the dragon's body has a gradient fade with an abrupt, harsh ending, rather than a smooth transition to transparency that all other dragons and the rest of the skydancer illustrations have.
  • Skydancer H Laced - Skydancer hatchlings with the laced primary have the shadow layer misnamed, so it is not recolored special each time and is always the same warm hue. Easiest to see on lighter and cooler colors.
  • Skydancer M Circuit - Skydancer males are missing the indigo color in the circuit tertiary gene.
  • Snapper H Buttercup Stitched - The assets for Snapper hatchlings with buttercup stitched are missing.
  • Spiral M Fade - Spiral males are missing the tail fade in the fade gene present on all other dragons including other spirals.
  • Tundra F Glimmer - Glimmer gives Tundra females a box border around the edges of the 350x350 image very faintly.
  • Tundra F Eye Sockets - This has been a long running issue that spans many genes, but the basic colors of tundra female are missing the differentiated eye patch color present in the male and hatchlings. Affected genes include Primary Basic, Fade, Giraffe, Jupiter, Leopard, Petals, Slime, Speckle, Swirl, Tiger, and Vipera.
  • Tundra F Patchwork THe mane in Tundra females with patchwork has colored pixels from stitched that bleed into the mane.
  • Tundra H Koi - Koi Lead color does not show up on tundra hatchlings.
  • Tundra H Seraph - The Seraph secondary has a clipping issue on tundra hatchlings where linework escapes the end of the front wing.
  • Tundra M Scales - The scales tertiary on tundra males is missing the scales that go over the wrist of the wing. These are present in all other dragons the other poses of the tundra breed.
  • Veilspun Capsule - The Capsule gene on veilspun dragons has the glass highlight set to a normal blending mode rather than screen.
  • Veilspun Runes - The Runes gene on veilspun has an issue where the shadow layer fades in and out on things that have no shadow (on the tertiary). This is most noticeable on darker colors.
  • Veilspun M Tapir - The foot color on tapir on veilspun males bleeds from the back feet into the tail behind it.
  • Veilspun M Arc and Loop - Arc and loop on male Veilspun are have a small accent patch of color that accidentally had its layer deleted. These accents are present on females and hatchlings. Male needs to be updated to match them.
  • Wildclaw M Flair - A small portion of the back wing (wrist joint) that pops out to the left of the head is the incorrect color for flair.
  • Wildclaw M Speckle - Wildclaw males have spots clip into the belly portion of the tail.
  • Wildclaw M Striation - Stripes from stration faintly clip over from the front wing's wrist onto the feathers of the crest. More visible on darker colors, but present in all Wildclaw M strations.
