Flight Rising can be found here.
This is a place to discuss flight rising! trade user-names, tips, info, dragons... or just talk. (how do I thread? we may never know.) (We can have a secret society!) Flight Rising is a browser-based virtual pet game, with dragons. (thanks mfb for the more thorough explanation below!)

(friendly reminder, there is no advantage given by belonging to a particular flight, and you should choose the one you like the best.) (leporidae is just advertising their element.) (also, NATURE FOR THE WIN!!!)

Erm, and it's what now? Whatever it is is under heavy load and I should come back later for reasons unexplained to me by any sort of description, FAQ, or other documentation.

My favorite norn is still Belldandy.

It is a browser-based virtual dragon game, and try refreshing, it's been having some issues. (I think they said they were changing/adding servers?)

Hello I am MFB on Flight Rising also.

Some quick info for new people/things no one told me initially:

- If you've played Wajas you already know what you're getting into here.

- The site had a good run on Kickstarter and is being hit HARD, things are slow; it literally just opened a couple of weeks ago, including its beta period. They've been attentive with clearing up issues though. If it's sluggish just come back after a little while. The 'server overloaded' fullscreen message does literally mean the server is overloaded, not that it's taken down completely; try again in a couple of minutes

- Neondragon does the dragon art, which some people might recognize.

- The flights are basically clans, the one you pick affects nothing incredibly important: elemental attacks for your starter dragons in the coliseum (nonessential to general gameplay), your standing in the weekly dominance, and which private forum you get access to (might be important if you have some talkative friends here). The largest is currently Wind, but I think I'm the only CC member in Wind.

- There's currently a holiday event going on until the end of the day on the 29th, brightshine jubilee. There's four unique items you can get on the festive favors page, but you need immaculate tablets to trade for them. You get immaculate tablets by doing your daily harvesting after picking the Light region in the dropdown -- it doesn't matter what kind (digging, scavenging, hunting, etc.)

- Weekly dominance is calculated by proportion of dragons exalted to the number of active members of the flight exalting them, so even a very small flight can have a good chance to win if they get coordinated. You will probably not have to think about this unless you suddenly come upon a windfall of dragons in your lair.

- If you're lagging out of the coliseum or fairgrounds constantly there's a link for that below the applet, click it. This has been slightly more stable for me.

- Easy and medium jigsaws have a better time spent:treasure gained ratio.

- You can get a random item every day at the Trading Post.

- You get a gem every day if you keep your dragons fed.

- Here is a calculator for determining what colors you can get out of breeding any two dragons. Markings have a small chance of being passed if one of the parents has a special marking gene. Breed dominance rules are in effect (an uncommon dragon being bred with a common one will probably produce the more common breed). There's no way I'm aware of to breed dragons from different users right now other than to briefly let them borrow the dragon, then give it back.

- Skin and accent blueprints cost a lot of gems. Both are completely painted over the dragon and aren't affected by its colors.

- Here is another guide with an attack weakness/resistance chart and the color breeding wheel in it.

A dragon breading, fighting, and trading game with a virtual economy similar to that of Neopets would be a decent way to describe it.

Anyway, I took a look at it after work last night (meaning at like 2:00 am) and it seems alright. I like that they don't have gobs of flash objects cluttering the place up. There seems to be a decent variety of species, each with it's own unique look and color palette. Each species and sub-species has it's own care requirements, meaning that if you want to raise a brood of several different species you will need several varieties of food, though some species will eat more than one type of food.

The breeding mechanic - likely the main draw of the game - is rather simple, but elegant for what it is. Dragons come in different species, and each species includes four sub-species, each with it's own unique attributes, coat patterns, and graphics. there are purchasable genomes in the shops which can be purchased for coins; the genomes can add, or remove coat patterns, colors, and possible other attributes.

The mating interface is very user friendly and includes a preview of possible offspring. You can swap out dragons very easily with a simple drop-down menu, a handy feature which allows a quick preview of all the possible combinations.

Once your dragons have mated, the female will lay a clutch of two to five eggs. The eggs much be incubated daily, which requires player interaction in the form of a button press, and will hatch in five days time.

As for the economy... get ready for massive inflation. An item purchasable for 5000 coins at the default shops autosells for 500 coins. Usually, the auction house is a better place to find decently priced items, not so here. Most auctions are priced well over the buy value of an item, which makes the auction house a worse value than the default shops. This will hopefully change once a few more business minded players join the game.

In game currency is also available for purchase in the form of Gems, and is much less inflated. The exchange rate of Dollars to Gems is actually reasonable, with one dollar buys 100 Gems and the minimum purchase being 500 Gems for $5. Gems exclusive sales at the shop are also reasonable enough, though most purchases are entirely cosmetic in nature.

As is usual for games of this genre, there is a game room, though it is very much lacking at the moment, with only two games available; A Memory Match game and a Jigsaw puzzle. If the two, the Jigsaw gives the most reward for time spent, but be prepared for the odd 'unfair' puzzle, ie, a picture that consists of a single primary color with minimal detail. On the easiest difficulty, most of the pictures can be completed in under fifteen minutes, if you've any skill at piecing together puzzles.

As for load times, they are utterly abysmal, likely for reasons already mentioned. If you're on dail-up, be prepared to wait up to ten seconds for a page to load, if it loads at all. the game would really benefit from an additional server ow three.

In conclusion, the game seems like an enjoyable time sink, though is seems to require much less of your time than a game such as Neopets. Once the devs have introduced a few more games, and fixed the connection issues, the game promises to be quite the experience for fans of breeding and collecting dragons.

Joined a couple days ago and I like it, but today it's been nearly unplayable due to server issues. D:

On the bright side, I did find an egg while I was gathering today, and the hatchling is absolutely gorgeous.

@TheSecond: I was poking around the forums, and apparently there were three other games when they started out- they took them down to fix some things. So that's something to look forward to.

I'm really jealous! I haven't managed to find an egg yet...

I did manage to make a monetary swap from a really gaudy sunshine and magenta mirror to a tan and leaf guardian hatchling (Plague! love those red eyes) as a future mate for Gaurue, and I've got another hatchling on the way, so that's awesome.

I'd like to think that it's the game's way of making up to me for all those server errors. [nlaugh] Hope he grows up soon- with only two dragons I can't survive coliseum battles outside of the training grounds.

(I'm going to start spamming my FR feels here instead of bibbling ok, ok.) Oh my god have you noticed the light-sprites, freaking ADORABLE, I want to snuggle it and the image of it following Gaurue every-where with a little clip-board or something (Gaurue should have been lightning, sigh.) taking notes for her while she works and it could be like a little flash-light eeeeeee

You better hurry and get the tablets for it, then! They'll be gone by tomorrow

(I can give you my left-over tablets if you need it. I think I have about 25 last I checked)

Actually they're already gone. :( Jubilee ended 11:59PM on the 29th of June. Next month we get the Lightning clan festival though.

I heard saving tablets for next year is a good idea though.

I am so intrigued by this but worried about how much interaction it might require. D: Sometimes I just get too busy to check on things every day.

(I got the light-sprite and the light rune, I had 71 tablets when it came around.) General-flame, It's sort-of like creatchi, if you don't check in for 3 days, your dragons won't be very happy with you, and it might get a bit difficult to "feed the machine". (unlike creatchis, as far as I know they won't die in just 3 days.) EDIT:I didn't even know where that gem-per-day came from until I checked the "well fed" bonuses. this explains every-thing.

Swipp will take your broken bottles! (for the next hour and a half, but he does this often, so.) If you dig in the water area, you will get a lot of broken penny bottles, which give you 200 treasure! you can then trade ten empty broken bottles with swipp, and he'll give you another broken penny jar, it's great! (keep your broken bottles, boys and girls.)

I keep hearing about this site from everywhere, but I'm afraid I'm already on too many pet SIM sites. XD
[Gryffs, Leayph, Arillio... three is enough for me. xP ] I used to be on a site that seems similar to Flight Rising, called Leviathan-Myth, but that site kind of died since it's creator is a bit absent...

How long do dragons live?

I think they live infinitely long lives, as long as they don't starve. (thus if you want to be rid of a dragon, your options are to sell it or exalt it.) (not bad options either way, in my opinion.)

Dear me, you don't know how long I've been looking for a game like this.

Pretty much ever since I got obsessed with dragons at the age of 11 in fact.

I'm Pottslande, member of the Lightning clan.
