[FT] Howrse Spotters

Hello,
Had a little look inside my ec forum and found a good idea.
why don't we play Howrse spotters!
It's very simple you just need to find an extraordinary Howrse and put the link to his page here.
We could look for the Oldest, the fattest, the skinniest, the biggest number of wins in one type of competition and so on, i'll let you imagine which ones we can search together.
Good searching ! default smiley ;)

So i got a coat and background combo that looked like it'd be perfect on the preview but had the horse completely miss the pedestal once actually applied. Since the preview doesn't show where the horse actually ends up, i think it might be helpful to make a second forum thread to make a note of combos that don't play nice with each other like that so people won't accidentally waste their hard-earned helios' rays. I don't know how to post images here, but if you want to see what i mean, it's my horse djoser in my dune sea section. It's just a shame that the preview is so far from where the horse actually lands

I'm guessing the background has been changed since then but I too wish they would give a real preview like they used to. Back when you could preview a Ray and see the page as it would actually look once applied and it was inordinately helpful in picking out backgrounds that match. Now I've several Rays that don't line up right, or part of the background I wanted visible is hidden behind panels, etc.

If you search for "Mountain" in the creations directory there are many beautiful mountainous backgrounds. "mountain" has a few as well. I always recommend searching keywords in the directory; you'll almost always turn up some options.

A couple other backgrounds that might fit:

Name: ◊ᑅ Nҽɨgҽ ᑀ◊
Creator: Invasi0n

Name: Winter Song
Creator: ebonita

Name: Drain the colors

Additional tip: the creations search engine is case sensitive, so if you search for fx 'mountain' you will not find the coats with 'Mountain' in the name.
You can either do 2 searches or leave out the first letter, and search for 'ountain'.
This works for any keyword of course.

Finding synonyms can also help. If you're looking for mountains, try Hill/hill or Alp/alp and you'll find some great ones too.
('ill' instead of 'Hill/hill' works too, but you'll get a lot of unusable extras because the combination 'ill' is short and is in many other words too.)

I've looked at Djoser because I was curious about the combination and he has a real nice background imo. Did you change it? I don't see the pedestal problem here.

Also, I don't know if everybody knows, but you can change the horse's place in the picture.
If you hover over the horse, you'll see 5 buttons above his head. The second one is called 'reduce landscape'. If you click that, the panels on the left (the Care buttons) and on the right (the Mission and Training buttons) will sink.
After that you can shrink and enlarge your horse and drag it to the place in the picture where you want it. (Within certain limits, but a lot is possible.)
I found that with a lot of difficult landscapes, these adjustments will solve the problem.

Sadly there will always be backgrounds where it will not exactly work as you'd want it to be. And there are - even sadder - also landscapes with real nice details that will always disappear behind some parts of the Howrse website, like the blue button bar.
There is for example a great blue background (I can't find it right now!) with a little red fox in the lower right corner, and that fox completely disappears when you use it in the game. The preview looks really great!

Sadly this only works if you have the landscape enlarged (and if you reduce the landscape again it will shift back), so it's less helpful for horses that you work regularly. But thanks for the tip! I do have a couple "display" horses.




Not related to that, but Llon23 also has a bunch of coat themes in her forum - and some Rays too - so people who are looking for themed coats should stop by and see if their theme is listed.

Back when i first posted in here i was trying to do a walking the plank themed horse. I sure wish there was a good ray made for that, though it would probably be tricky to find a correctly positioned horse for it. However, i've been BLUPping since then, and my new BLUP is a black overo horse, so i thought this coat from 1kkurtz's forum would make a good coat for a similar theme of ships/ocean.default smiley ^) So thanks for telling me about their lists!default smiley :d

Not sure how to quote/reply directly, but yes I did finally change djoser's background. I didn't know there were controls to tweak it. I'll try that out; I'm not sure how it'll work when controlling it on classic and returning to mobile, but it'd make background matching so much easier. Thanks for the tip default smiley :d

Yes, that's what I said. I just looked on the page of a horse with enlarged landscape so the button says reduce, but indeed I should have written the *enlarge* button.
There's a bit more scrolling to do after that indeed. I must say I don't mind, but I have VIP and autocomp, that makes a lot of difference here. I thus display all my horses with a landscape default smiley ;)

Thanks for the addition, just added Llon23 too!
Goodness, so much work they have done searching all these coats. Kudos!! default smiley (l)
