Introducing Non-Binary Creatures, With Gender Chances

September 13, 2022 at 3:00 PM 96 Comments

Introducing The Non-Binary Gender

All creatures can now be the Non-Binary gender on Egg Cave. This is represented by the circle symbol on their creature image.

As part of this update, gender icons on all creature images have been updated with the new gray circle icon representing the non-binary gender.

Species Now Have A Gender Profile

Obtaining a creature of a certain gender now has a weighted, random chance on Egg Cave. It is different for each species. You can view which gender profile a species has in the Archives and find an individual species.

Gender Profile Chances

  • Standard: 48% male, 48% female, 4% non-binary
  • Masculine: 85% male, 10% female, 5% non-binary
  • Feminine: 85% female, 10% male, 5% non-binary
  • Genderless: 94% non-binary, 3% male, 3% female

Gender profiles have been set based on what might make the most sense for that type of creature. The Genderless gender profile typically applies to object-like creatures that don't suggest the presence of gender. Gender profiles and their chances are now published in the Cave & Adopting area of the Player Guide.

SAR Center, Cash Shop, Event Prize Shops Updated

In places around Egg Cave where you have the ability to select a creature's gender in advance, you can now select Non-Binary as a gender. This applies to places like the Creature Labs, Cash Shop, and future site event Prize Shops (among many other places such as The VEND Machine). Non-binary is now another gender option. Random is still an option if you're feeling fiesty—selecting "Random" has a 33% for male vs female vs non-binary.

The Non-Binary Stone

Like the Mars Stone and Venus Stone, there is the brand-new Non-Binary Stone that can transform any creature to Non-Binary. Like the other stones it's 100 CC. Looking to have a specific type of collection? This is how.

Gender profile for a species not looking right?

This is the very beginning of our new gender profile system. If a species looks wildly off to you for its set gender profile, please submit a ticket with your feedback.

The Default Cove Size Is Now 500

September 9, 2022 at 3:45 PM 79 Comments

All Players Have At Least 500 Cove Spaces

With Egg Cave pressing nearly 1,000 creatures (almost!), it's time for an update to Coves. All players who currently have less than 500 Cove spaces have been upgraded to 500 Cove spaces—minimum! This is the new, default Cove space amount for all registered players.

The way that Cove space costs are calculated have also changed. Your new upgrade cost for buying a Cove space is now based on the new default of 500 spaces. This is, in essence, a price adjustment for the cost of upgrade. Enjoy the discount if you're already beyond 500 spaces. New spaces are now cheaper for you than what you were paying previously.

Click here to see your new upgrade cost.
