The Halloween cats just came out Tad. The traits will pop in about 2 weeks.

RE: Build-a-cat - Ivy Norsk - 02-23-2022 08:50 AM

It’s time for a new traits round-up before the current collection cats start showing us their hidden stuff.

Cheetah! - Maltese Black Chinchilla discussed here
Cheetah! - Washed Blue Mink discussed here
Chimera - Seal Point Mink discussed here
Chimera - Spotted Flame discussed here

Odyssey Nebula Moon discussed here
Odyssey Slime and Sky discussed here
Odyssey Tapestry No. 1 discussed here

Odyssey Vampire discussed here

I think there's an unfound eye, Odyssey Tapestry No. 2. Callie teased it on the picture that she sent out of the Cheetah! - Maltese Black Chinchilla, but nobody has found it yet.

I gotta say, I'm also looking at those whiskers and saying to myself, "are those 2 Tone Black & White, or are those an un-found Black Tipped Grey or Black Tipped Smoke?"

RE: Build-a-cat - Tad Carlucci - 03-02-2022 08:01 AM

The Build-a-Cat site may be down for a while sometime today as I move the DNS to point to a new hosting provider. The TTL (time to live) is 1200 seconds (2 hours) so it may take a few hours for your browser to find the new site. Your ISP may ignore the TTL, so it can take a day or two for your browser to see the change. If you're using Chrome (or a derivative like Edge) you should see the green lock icon instead of "Not Secure" or a grayed lock next to the name at the top of the screen, as the site will now support (if not enforce) a secure connection (HTTPS).

After the move, when I'm satisfied, I'll be making the recent change request.

Tad -the site is fantastic! I can't seem to find the Mustache whiskers though. Am I looking wrong?

RE: Build-a-cat - Tad Carlucci - 03-02-2022 04:27 PM

Did I miss a request to add Mustache whisker shape?

It's been months since the previous request and I'd not be surprised if some got missed. I have a few minutes, I'll try to compare to the dominance charts to see what else might be missing.
commit 21eda1b8a922865c48ca2fcb5cf13b72e991f4c3

Correct sorting

Added Eye: RockCrysyal
Added Eye: RockOpera
Added Whisker Shape: Mustache

commit 8259df5d244710e7786addf01c21bf045ab187ef

Removed eye: RockOpera


This resulted from a run-through of the dominance charts.

RE: Build-a-cat - Ivy Norsk - 03-03-2022 10:11 AM

Thank you.
Yeah, sorry, we seem to have missed listing Mustache here, though it is placed on the charts.

RockCrystal and RockOpera are eye traits from the new collection and were just discovered within the past 2-3 days. In both cases there is a single cat on the grid (that we know of) that shows the eye. I'm curious as to why they register differently.

RE: Build-a-cat - Tad Carlucci - 03-03-2022 11:00 AM

I removed RockOpera because it doesn't exist, yet. It'll probably appear once the trait actually appears and isn't hidden behind a costume.

RE: Build-a-cat - Tad Carlucci - 03-05-2022 10:21 PM

Build-a-Cat can now be installed as PWA (Progressive Web App). That means you can have it in your Start Menu / Task Bar / Desktop and use it without having to fire up a web browser and follow a link or bookmark. Even though it's a PWA, it won't work offline since there you probably don't have all the KittyCatS images cached. YMMV.

I've only tested this on Windows 10. Let me know if there are problems on Linux or MacOS.

Add lang attribute to assist screen readers
Oh? How to install it? On Chrome, at least, there's a new icon on the right of the navigation bar which says "Install Build-a-Cat" when you hover over it. It's next to the bookmark star and sharing arrow.
