xan's C3/DS breed list

I made my own breed list because my husband asked me where he could find a good list and I was unhappy with what was available. This was put together in February 2018 and updated likewise.

Notes:

You could copy this table and bold the breeds you have in your game, so you can tell at a glance what new installs might conflict later.

You have my permission (and encouragement) to reuse, remix, duplicate, etc. any of the information and graphics on this webpage. Especially for updating the wiki; power to you, I just don't have the time. I'd prefer you didn't reupload it as 'xan's breed list' but whatever. As for the breeds themselves, authors seem to have mixed opinions about people reuploading the stuff they made; Creatures fandom is one of the few places on the internet that this attitude has persisted past the 90s, and I find it humbling, so I acquiesce.

I've rehosted breeds when I've found explicit permissions on their readme or website. I can't speak for what anyone else does.

Other breed lists I've referred to include: Trix's (understandably out of date), Creatures Wiki's (any old fool can add a WIP here, making it indecisive and unreliable), an archive of Where Is The Breed, an archive of Mummy's list, an archive of C-Files, Creatures Caves' list (incomplete by design), and various wild associative goose chases. Any of these may be excellent places to start when I inevitably disappear for 5/10/100 years and this list goes stale.

Aardvark norn

Ettin Y ( _2_y male ... _6_y female )

There is only one lifestage and they remain quadrupedal their entire life. They are indeed norns, not geats.

Grendel B ( _1_b male ... _5_b female )

Official breed. Originally Creature Mall breed w/ unique genome + pack. Somewhat pivotal to game lore.

Creatures Wiki page

This is technically a paid breed that is no longer available ... but ask around.

Beastaur norn

Norn T ( _0_t male ... _4_t female )

Only the 'beast' half of this breed has new sprites (the legs and tail are modified); the norn half can be substituted in from other breeds.

Creatures Wiki page

Creatures Caves

Bengals des Neiges

Ettin O ( _2_o male ... _6_ o female )

Alternately 'snow bengals'. There is a mod that changes the head sprites to have some color on them.

There is a v1 version of this with slightly different sprites; I haven't been able to track it down or find it in my archives.

Creatures Wiki page

Creatures Caves v2

Bengal norn

Norn B ( _0_b male ... _4_b female )

Official breed. Comes with C3. Patch 2 adds an 'expressive' variant; the original genomes rarely moved their face much.

Creatures Wiki page

Get Creatures 3. Try GOG or eBay.

Bengal Wingies

Ettin B ( _2_b male ... _6_b female )

See also the mod version that replaces the Bengal sprites if preferred (hosted in same location). You still require Bengals (and thus Creatures 3) to use these, this version just doesn't replace the originals.

This is outright badly packaged and missing sprites, resulting in these showing up with Ettin parts. Here is my patch for this.

Beowulf norn

Geat  B ( _3_b male ... _7_b female )

Creatures Wiki page

No live links found.
Was pulled from personal archives.

Black Blob

Geat D ( _3_d male ... _7_d female )

There are a couple of different variants of the sprite set included.

Be advised that having multiple geats in a world can cause a world-breaking bug (all rooms change type to air, not just the ones in between as the Wasteland glitch is typically described). Plan your ecology appropriately.

Grendel E?

Have not been able to find a reliable download. May be confusing this with Giant CV ports, I don't know. Vidya norns are a down-scaled version.

Centaur norn

Norn Q ( _0_q male ... _4_q female )

Only the horse half of this breed has new sprites (the legs and tail are modified); the norn half is substituted from various other breeds at random and can be spliced in. See also the added pelts which via sprite replacements adds up to a total of 12 color variants (which are well documented in the pack itself, and I will not attempt to photograph). Brown males and grey dapple females are the default.

Chichi wingies

Identical to Chichis other than wings. See also the mod version that replaces the Chichi sprites if preferred (hosted in same location). Also called just 'wingies'.

Civet Wingies

Ettin Q ( _2_q male ... _6_q female )

... like the Bengal Wingies, these are objectively broken (missing wrist sprites = ettin limbs). Like the Bengal Wingies, I patched them, which you can find here.

I don't even like Wingies. But I'm also irked by seeing things so close to completion, then at the last minute turned away...

See also the mod version, which overwrites the original Civets.

Females' heads turn red on adulthood. Hopefully this screenshot actually looks somewhat like a creature instead of an incomprehensible green mass, unlike every single other image I've found of them.

Dlaaks come in both a norn and a geat version. Be advised that having multiple geats in a world can cause a world-breaking bug (all rooms change type to air, not just the ones in between as the Wasteland glitch is typically described). Plan your ecology appropriately.

Geat G ( _3_g male ... _7_g female )

It is really hard to capture what or why Gaia is one image; she's scripted to double as a sentient ecosystem monitor. Keep in mind that Creatures 3 came out around the same time Farscape was airing, and she might make more sense.

There is a DS version floating around that I neither possess nor have a link to.

Be advised that having multiple geats in a world can cause a world-breaking bug (all rooms change type to air, not just the ones in between as the Wasteland glitch is typically described). Plan your ecology appropriately.

They only have one life stage and no body data (meaning they inherit the closest slot's). They are indeed norns, not geats.

Geat I...?

I can only find information about the C2 version of this, which was in Norn S; Trix placing it in Geat I inclines me to believe it is indeed real and floating around somewhere, or at least sitting on a hard drive in hiatus.

Before smugly writing this one off as 'better off lost' you may want to consider this is a German creation, among other assumptions.

Mountain norn

Norn G ( _0_g male ... _4_g female )

They seem to have very little, if any sexual dimorphism (both sprite sets are present; I checked), which is interesting.

Multi Malay norn (CV port)

Norn X ( _0_x male ... _4_x female)
Have also seen this referred to on norn Z - maybe that's where the green one is supposed to be...?

Every image I've found of these shows a pair of green norns whereas the file I downloaded definitely has dimorphic colors (no pigmentation in genome). Odd. The one on NTA shows them in this color though.

I had some malformed sprite files in my slot J download so I omitted that version from the list. The slot Z version works better in theory ... but one must be mindful to delete the original genetics or else you'll end up with slot J anyway. This takes some finagling to set up to say the least.

I cannot for the life of me track these down; I remember seeing them floating around very briefly, and looking like heavily MSPaint'd C1 sprites, but I could just as easily be thinking of something else.

These are not Uninorns (a C2 breed-- a C3 port of which would be lovely, if Wafuru would ever tolerate such meddling, but ultimately unrelated).
