Hello all!! I am BRAND new to editing breed files and I would like some help with creating variations. I have no clue on how to go about doing this. I just got the program Petz Workshop and I'm still trying to figure out how everything works, but so far so good! I have made my own Australian Shepherd breed file that actually turned out pretty good and I plan on sending it to a friend, but so far I only have one variation and I can't figure out how to make more. My current variation has a gray, white and brown coat color with lots of black and white splotches as Paintballz, and it has brown eyes. I want to make two more coat variations, a black and white one and a brown and white one, each with it's own unique Paintballz. I also want the game to be able to select two different tail styles for ALL coat colors, docked tail and full tail, and I want multiple eye variations for every coat: blue, brown, amber, and heterochromia of each color (blue and brown, amber and blue etc.) I've tried following the tutorial Sherlock Software provides but when I try this, it puts the Paintballz on the wrong variant, or it makes the lines the wrong color, or something else happens and nothing works. If someone can please give me an in-depth explanation, advice or a tutorial on making multiple variations I would appreciate it so much!! <3 (And apologies if I've done anything wrong here, this is my first time on this forum too haha)
I have no idea how to do it in PW, if there's even a way to do it. I know how to do it in LNZ Pro and it's kind of a pain.
Under you will want to start, and assign a pound sign and number to your variation, such as #4 . If you do #4.A you will lock the variation, which helps with things sometimes. You will need to code all the ballz and addballz for the colour you want, and then do it again at #3 and #2. I leave #1 as the one down in the [Ballz] section.
Next you will want to do your eyes. You can have these unlocked (no .A) and do the same thing with 14, 28 I believe the irises are. Do as many as you want and just seperate them out from the body with two ##
Eyelids are next at the top. Do the same locked variation order there.
For the tails, you'll go under [Omissions] and do your variants there, listing what you want to omit from each variation. It's a pain and a lot of work but it ends up being pretty cool!
In paintballz, you'll do the same variation coding. If you want to make things random, you can leave them as unlocked variations and if you seperate them out with ##, you can have multiples or none at all show, like in the original dalmatian file. it can really make for unique petz!
commander: Yeah, I realized that when I went to my settings, lol. I look forward to seeing what it looks like on September 22nd

Ratqueen: Yeah, the Autumn Theme is only available to mods for testing right now. I think it's my favorite (haven't made one for Winter yet). I'm switching to the Summer Night them for now.

Ratqueen: I'm sorry I haven't kept in touch with everybody in the last few months... I've been very preoccupied, and had little time at the computer. I'll hopefully be more active again soon!
