Having the pup coats randomized would solve that problem.



I agree with this but, I think that the pack leader’s genes should always have a presence in the litter, since it’s their game and their litter. The rest of the genes could be randomly chosen from pack members.

I think that having half from the pack creator and half randomized would be the best way to go. That way the pack creator has at least some control over the coat color of the pups.

Why not stay with the current system? Randomizing the pelts does seem like the most convenient thing to do, but in the current game, if I remember correctly, the host influences the colours of half of the pups and the second player to join influences the other half. A system like that couldn't hurt, could it?

One problem with that would be if someone got to the den and received the pups before anyone else joins. However, this could work if it's switched to half random if no players join the game before the pups arrive. Alternatively, the host's genes could be used twice, but my favourite of these options personally would be half host's genes, half random.

I remember learning about this stuff years ago in biology class. I was actually pretty good with it, but looking back on it now I feel confused xD

Anyways, again, I am impressed with the details! So much research is going into every little feature and just wow!
