Helpful Tips

Physical mutations allow a user to customize their Felvarg to various degrees. Each has its own set of rules and boundaries though, which are detailed within each mutation respectively. Despite being visually vastly different, they do all hold similar rulesets. We will outline them below.

Active: Visually the physical mutation is showing on your Felvargs image.
Inactive: They physical mutation does not visually show, but will be marked as (carried), indicating while not visually present the physical mutation will still have a chance to genetically pass to offspring.

All physical mutations have official lineart provided by the group, to be applied to your import. These files can be downloaded from our Design Hub. Be mindful without an accessory applied, all physicals must use our default lines.
As mentioned above Accessories can be used to customize your Felvargs physical mutations. You will need 1x Accessories for each physical you wish to redraw and when redrawing them be mindful of the following.

Where your lines begin and end must be relevant to our placement. This means if you customize bobtail, it must start and end roughly in the same place and be similar in length.
The lines drawn for your custom physical must match your coat type. This means if you have a short coat, but customize the lines to be extremely curly, you will be sent back to corrections. Allow our base lineart to guide you to safe lengths and behaviors. With Short and Sphynx your physicals may vary in length and may be shortened by up to half the default lines.
You may apply a Cloak of Shadows to your unused genotype or uploaded Felvarg to apply Physical Mutations to your Felvarg. Be mindful once uploaded if you wish to change your custom mohawk, for a different custom mohawk for example, you will need to apply another accessory to edit it.
When customizing your Physical Mutations with an accessory, you cannot draw your Physical Mutation shorter than the default lines.

Not all physical mutations interact when paired together. For example curled tail and bobtail together create an interaction, but long tail and curled tail do not. Check each physical respectively to see if an interaction is present.
When applying a physical mutation your marking becomes an extension of it. This means if your maned marked is in full coverage, and you have mohawk, the maned color/marking will extend to mohawks region.
Be cautious when using superficial lines. When drawing custom physical mutations add only the lines necessary and leave as many original lines present as possible. Abusive use of superficial lines will come with a correction.
