FFQ: Deb's Daunting Decision

41 posts in this topic

@jellysundae Thank you so much! :heart:

I'm afraid not. Like Angeló said, the clothing is only transferred if the pet is the right colour. Since she would be painted Pastel afterwards, it wouldn't work :\

@Angeló Oh, there's absolutely no way I would send Candrady to a side! She's the boss lady. The first pet I created on my main... She's my battle pet, book pet, gourmet pet, nearly everything pet. I don't want two Zafaras, I only thought of the other one as a means to get the Christmas clothing for Zihea. The reason I'm considering moving one of my pets (probably Brodian) is because I want to have a non-permanent slot on my main for a labrat. If I keep 4 pets I don't want to change on my main I can't use the lab ray there.

Right now I'm thinking how cool it would be if I could afford premium - having 5 pet slots on my main would be the perfect solution :thumbsup: (Although even if I could afford it, premium scares me a bit because I hear there's a lot of issues with billing. But I digress...)

This item is part of a deluxe paint brush set!
Paint Brush costume items cannot be removed from your closet!

I got confused because I was looking on DTI at their trading thing (I really can't understand how that works >_<) and one user had a message in their closet that said something like "if you've lost paintbrush items in the pound I have spares from lab zaps"

...

But that's no use to anyone else so :axehead:

Of course I can't remember what particular item lead me to their closet, so I can't go back and read what they said again. I suspect I read it completely wrong though, at least I hope I did and they're not trying to scam people or something.

No, he's also a permie! Candrady, Brodian and Ilesia are all permies. Zihea is my lab rat as of now, but since she won't be after she becomes a Zafara, I'm going to start zapping a different pet (one of my other side pets). And yes, I could move Ilesia, it has to be either her or Brodian. I have to decide... *strokes chin*

Nope, that's completely legit! You can't trade clothing as regular items, but again, as Angeló said, you can do so via pet transfer. If I adopt a Christmas Zafara from the pound, it won't come with the wings and halo, but if I send the pet to someone who has them and they send me back the pet via transfer, I will get the clothing!

Oh gosh this is making my brain hurt, LOL. But doesn't that mean that you can do that between your own accounts?

Hm, yes, you can. I'm getting a bit confused too, hang on...

...

I could paint Zihea Christmas before painting her Pastel, then adopt a Christmas Zafara from the pound and transfer it to my main. Then I re-pound it and send Zihea to my main and the clothes will be the there waiting for her. But adopting a Zafara on my main and painting it Christmas also works, the clothes will be there and there's the advantage of saving an extra transfer. Also, I don't know if there are a lot of Christmas Zafaras in the pound, and with this method it doesn't matter which colour it is because I will paint it anyway.

@jellysundae the problem is : once the Christmas Zafara is painted Pastel , the Wings and Halo will go into the closet , and not on the pet ... thus if she transferred her to her main , she will go only as a Pastel , not a Christmas/Pastel cross-over. 

@deboratibi Painted pets lose their PB clothes when pounded .. a Christmas Zafara in the pound will be cloth-less as well , you can adopt any color Zafara and paint her Christmas then re-pound her (chances of re-adoption will increase because people love Christmas Zafaras even without the PB clothes) ...

So I'm back to what's the point of that person on DTI offering clothes that people have lost in the pound...

I think, in general, I'm NEVER going to be able to understand this, lol. :blush02:

But in all this going round and round in circles, you guys are going to come up with a solution in the end. :D

There's at least one Christmas Zafara in the pound right now. http://www.neopets.com/search.phtml?selected_type=pet&string=Shu_9

let's suppose you pounded a Desert Uni 

the Desert PB clothes will stay in YOUR closet 

someone else (person 2) came and adopted the Uni without the clothes

a third person (person 3) will offer to cloth the Uni for them because they have the Desert PB clothes in their closet but they don't need them anymore (they were either from a lab zap or their Uni has changed species etc etc) ... PB clothes can really clutter up your closet .. for example i have 3 sets of Island Lutari PB clothes cuz of lab zaps) ..  

so person 2 will send the Uni to person 3 who'll cloth her as a Desert Uni again , and send her back to person 2 who now has a fully clothed Desert Uni

@Angeló Ah yes, I know that painted pets lose their clothes when pounded, I thought Jelly was asking if there was a simpler way to get the clothing. So I was explaining my options, which are:

a ) Paint Zihea Christmas > paint her Pastel > adopt a Christmas Zafara on the same side account > transfer it to my main > pound it from my main > send Zihea to my main
b ) Adopt any coloured Zafara on my main > paint it Christmas > pound it > send Zihea to my main after painting her Pastel

Technically there's a third option that would be adopt a Christmas Zafara on my main > ask someone for clothing, but that wouldn't be a cool move since I'd be pounding the pet afterwards, plus, the less people and transfers involved the better.

I think the second one is the simplest

Ah, hang on...WAIT A MINUTE!...I think some understanding may be occurring...:ph34r:

Is my issue here that I'm mixing Pounding - meaning abandoning, up with transferring...?

Abandon a painted pet and it loses its clothes - transfer a painted pet and it doesn't?

Have I finally made sense of things?

By the way, I love your Zafara, that's a great customisation! And LOL at the Mariah Carey comment, that was so random. But then again, yeah, the chest xD

Thank you :heart:

that's not Mariah Carey .. that's a sexy librarian in the Altadorian Archives on her one day off .. taking a stroll right outside her house

Nuuu! Not sexy!!

I think that the second option would be the best even if you have to "pound" a pet :( I don't really like that idea as well, it is very sad isn't it?
