End-of-First-Year Statistics - August 06, 2007, 07:52:39 pm by ElasticMuffin
Hello TCR'ers!

As I was perusing the latest batch of incoming creatures today, I thought for a moment, and realized- today is TCR's first birthday! Let's see how far things have come in a year:

Total creatures in database: 786
Total downloads: 2565

Of those, 702 are Norns, 48 are Ettins, and a mere 36 are Grendels (so unloved!).

647 of these Creatures are for C3/DS, while C2 tallies 98 creatures and C1 has 48.

The smallest category: Not counting C1 Ettins (which don't exist), the smallest is C2 Ettins, tallying a single lone Grettin named Emmy ( Closely following the C2 Ettin category is Grendels for C1 and C2, containing 2 each.

The largest is, of course, C3 Norns, containing 568, or roughly 72%, of the database.

The Battle of the Sexes is a fairly close one: females barely edge out males, with 388 female creatures vs. 314 males.

The most popular creature is Bernalde ( with 19 downloads, a totally white Bengal/Siamese norn cross bred from Volt (another popular norn at 16 downloads) and submitted last October by Poopster. It seems that white is a popular color: 4 of the 5 most popular norns are almost totally white in color.

The most popular tag is "green", with 185 creatures, making it clear what color breeders prefer. It is closely followed by "chichi", a very common breed seeing as it comes free with Docking Station, which is a tag for 183 creatures. "bengal", "highgen", "purple", and "blue" are also very common, with over 100 creatures tagged for each.

The most prolific submitter is still angelneko, a creature-submitting powerhouse whose creatures make up a whopping 21% of the database (168 creatures). Tarlia, though she has been inactive on the site since November, still registers in second place, tallying 135 creatures, or 17%. Recent gainers include Aileea (49 creatures) and Poopster (currently at 40).

We currently have 93 members. For the most part, everyone has submitted at least 1 creature. :)

All in all, I am very pleased with the site and how it has done over the course of the year. Don't worry, folks - TCR isn't going anywhere.

Update: Tarlia is not actually as inactive as first thought. Hi, Tarlia! :)

TCR, Improving Norn Browsing Since 2006 - July 10, 2007, 02:04:22 am by ElasticMuffin
Yeah, so I added a nifty new feature - when you mouse over thumbnails on the Creature database page, a full size picture of the creature will be displayed. This fixes the silliness of having thumbnails that you can barely see, forcing you to browse to the view page to make sure it looks cool before downloading it. Now you needn't do that. Enjoy. :) (Javascript required)

It's Tool Time! - June 15, 2007, 03:38:06 am by ElasticMuffin
I decided to go ahead and create a new 'Tools' section, to provide you guys a few nifty web-based Creatures tools I've had lying around but not publicly-accessible yet. The Picture Extractor is the first. Hopefully a PRAY decompiler will follow soon. Stay tuned!

From the Things I Heard Someone Wanted Dept. - June 14, 2007, 05:48:55 pm by ElasticMuffin
Here's something new for you:

The new and shiny C3 Creature Picture Extractor. Now if you want to easily retrieve the pictures from your exported C3 creatures for use on a website or what have you, we have the solution. Using the same engine that the TCR submit engine uses to convert pictures in the C3 creatures you submit, this nifty script will return a picture in JPG format for your use.

Coming later today: Other file formats (PNG, GIF), and multiple picture extraction to make it even easier. :)

Update: The abovementioned features are now implemented. All pictures contained in the creature file will be extracted and displayed. You can also make thumbnails easily. :)
