Horn specific questions!
symprites

Are squishy nub horns soft and squishy or do they visually just look like that?

- Canonically, they are squishy and movable!

Can you combine unicorn horn with other horns?

- yes, all horn types can be combined with one another if you add the extra horn trait.

Would intertwined horns require the merged horns trait?

- If they are visually merged yes, if they just curl around eachother no!

Is there a minimum size for horns?

- Horns have to be somewhat visible on the masterlist, you're not allowed to make them disappear or appear too micro to be seen.

if i put a hat on my symprite is it allowed to obscure the horns?

- No, for masterlist simplicity all traits need to be visible, this includes the required traits like hooves, horns and a biote.

Is the royal trait visible on a symprite when they are a baby? Are they born with spiky horns?

- Canonically yes, they are born with their ridges and sharp teeth/fangs.

Are mismatched horn types allowed?

- yes, make sure you include the potions and list the traits if you do so!

What is the value and fur tuff rule?
myo / redesign
symprites

More detailed information can be found HERE but this will be a quick rundown for those checking last minute!

 

FUR TUFF GUIDE:

When submitting a symprite (this does NOT apply to aramelles) that's NOT an arctic they must follow the universal fur tuff rule. 

This rule was set in place to make sure no Symprite is too fluffy and would visually look like another subspecies!

This rule also applies to MARKINGS on the body, if the marking visually resembles FUR we count it in under the tuff rule!

 

MAX ALLOWED VALUE GUIDE:

Only up to 40% of a symprite is allowed to be covered in the 25 MAX ALLOWED VALUE!

Anything bellow 25% is not acceptable and will be send back, this rule does NOT apply to the imp trait, black sclera and clothing items.

You are free to color pick the values down below, if you do not know how to color pick the values you would have to google it, as almost ALL art programs have a color picker and value checker build in. 

(Usually hidden in a menu as toggle!)

The ear wing trait, how big can it be? can a symprite fly with the trait?
lore

It is physically impossible for the Symprite to lift, carry it and or walk around if the ear wing traits are any bigger than the maximum size of it's body, therefore the max allowed size is from the top of the head till the floor.

And no, a symprite cannot fly with the eared wing trait! the neck is simply too small to support the rest of the body if the symprite was able to fly.

What are "bappies"? and when does a symprite reach full maturity compared to our human standard?
lore

Symprites as a whole age differently from us, since their biote prologues their life expectancy.

A bappy, (baby) symprite is born with often very bright and stronger color pallets compared to when they are older, Its something that's still ingrained in their genetic makup, since very colorfull babies (like poisonous frogs) are there to ward of predators! As they grow older they usually saturate down in colors, also don't worry bappy's are no longer in danger like they used to be, it was a survival mechanism long before they merged with their symbiotes.

A symprite will in their standards reach maturity around the age of 30, since their normal max age is around 150 years.

So symprites compare other symprites under the age of 30 often to bappies, since in their eyes they are still babies in a sense even if they act tough.

Depending on subtype some often live longer (if they don't get into trouble that might end up getting them killed that is.)

Can I have more than 1 heritage trait (Royal, Brute, Imp) on my Symprite?
myo / redesign
symprites

Yes! You can have up to 2 heritage traits on one character and any combo of them as long as the subtype allows it (eg. Brute cannot be applied to Arctic, etc). This also applies to Hybrids, so if one of your hybrid's subtypes does not allow thee heritage it cannot have it applied.

Are all the different subtypes released? Can I change my Symprite / Aramelle's subtype?
symprites
aramelles
guidelines
myo / redesign

Not all Symprite and Aramelle subtypes have been released!

Two more Symprite subtypes are planned (Tidepool and Abyss) without a definitive release date yet! Aramelles also have more planned >:3

There is currently no way to change a Symprite or Aramelle subtype and Hybrids can only be gained through rare raffles and events.

What can be changed without a redesign / potions?
guidelines
myo / redesign

Anything that modifies a Symprite's design genetically would count as a redesign! This includes changes to the markings and/or colours, removing/adding/changing traits (this may also require potions to be done), and such.

Cosmetic changes like adding scars and accessories, changing hairstyles, etc would not require a redesign approval, but you may still submit new art to the master list the same way you would a redesign.

A full guide can be found here - https://symprites.com/info/symprites - under the "Redesign Guide" tab.

Symprites and MYO tickets can be obtained through regular sales, events and raffles!

Can I base my Symprite, Aramelle, pet species and/or personal designs on the current items/forageables and/or fish from the site?

guidelines
myo / redesign

No, we ask users not to do this as a lot of items are either lore locked or many of our fish and items are actually based on existing characters members got to submit through a ko-fi event! So we ask users not to use them as inspiration.
You are however free to take inspiration from our flora tab that's specifically designed to expand the lore and inspire people.
