Update: I know it's been two years now, but I am in fact still working on this and planning to update it. I didn't have much time to work for a while. Right now I'm in the middle of rewriting the code from as2 to as3. There'll be a lot of behind the scene changes that'll just make things run so much smoother. On top of that I've redone the layout, which looks much nicer now, it's easier to read and use, and makes it much easier to understand how things work. The last thing I have planned before I officially release the next version is a redo for the art on the markings. Lineart will stay the same, but things such as tabby markings, tortie patches, and white markings will be fixed up, and will hopefully look much better.

I'd like to get some opinions on whether I should upload the full version over this deviation, or whether I should upload a second one so this version can still be used. Thoughts? Feel free to still comment and give your opinion on this, but it's looking like I'll probably end up putting this version on, and uploading the new version over this. That way all favorites and links for this will still be intact, and people will still have the choice over which version to use. If you have any other opinions though, I'd love to hear them!

Posting your created cats

To save the cats you make, screenshot (no I'm not going to go into how to screenshot here, but if you think I should, feel free to comment and request it!) the page, and crop everything outside of the dark border around the cat if desired.

If you wish to upload the cat you created, you're more than welcome to, but make sure to read and follow dA's rules on this, and always give proper credit, either with a link back to this program, or a link to my userpage.

You are not under any circumstances allowed to sell the cats you create in this program for any kind of currency, nor use these for any kind of adoptables, free or otherwise. You are however more than welcome to use the design you've made and use it with a premade lineart, or in a drawing of your own, and you may sell, give away, and use that design however you please.

Feel free to link any cats you upload from this, I'd love to see them.

I love this version, but I can't wait for the newest version. Though, I do have a feeling having two versions of the same cat creator would be a little silly, in my opinion, since people are mainly going to use the newest version once it comes out.

So, perhaps this one can go into, and the other one could be a new deviant, or maybe there could be an option to switch between the two. Otherwise, I'd just edit this one and put the new one here. Some people may want to use the old one. -shrugs-

Also, I know you probably get this asked a lot, but can ya' spitball a potential release date? I'm not asking for specifics like day, just a general idea of release date. <3
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015  Student General Artist
I think putting this version in and putting the new version here sounds like a good idea. A few people have suggested the same, and so far it's sounding like it'll probably end up being the best option.

As for an estimate for a release date, I honestly would love to give one, but I don't have the slightest clue myself. The amount of time I have to work on it, as well as my motivation to do the coding, varies so much that there's really no way for me to give an estimate. For all I know at this point, it could be done within a couple weeks, or it could be quite a few months before I get around to finishing it. But progress is looking pretty good, so if things happen to go especially well and I have plenty of time and motivation, then it could be coming really soon! I'll let you know if I get a more solid idea of when it'll be finished.

When your release the Alpha, You should release it as a new deviant - So people can see what the beta looked like ;)

Cool ^_^

What about the amber tortoiseshell, as mentioned in this chart (along the bottom, about norwegian forest cats)

I admit, I can't find a picture of one (if you can, can you show me?) but I'm making a book about Wegies and I'm using your creator for the characters, so I'm curious about it.  

I love it, by the way, even though it isn't complete ^.^
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015  Student General Artist
Actually I went to look into amber cats and apparently there's a huge difference between those that carry the tabby gene and those that don't, even though they both have tabby stripes. That's apparently the reason some of the images I linked are more black/brown than others, not the age. Apparently the ones that don't carry the tabby gene end up looking more like silver or light brown tabbies than ginger ones.
AMK1024 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2015  New Deviant Hobbyist Writer
Well thank you for the pictures and all the information!
I seriously appreciate it :)
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015  Student General Artist
Oh! I'm sorry, I missed the word tortoiseshell and thought you were just talking about amber cats. Yeah, I've never actually seen a picture of an amber tortoiseshell, and I'm pretty sure they're more theoretical than anything. They'd probably look something like what merle looks like on dogs though I imagine. Some patches darker, some lighter, but with stripes, and all ginger-ish.
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015  Student General Artist
I probably will put amber in at some point, along with bengal markings, but because those two are so extremely breed specific, they probably won't be in the next update sadly. Plus for amber, there's not really enough pictures for me to use as reference on how things like chocolate and silver and such affect it. It looks relatively similar to a dark ginger when they're full grown, but the kittens are born black or grey and change as they get older, which is the main reason for the distinction between that and ginger. When they're young they can look really interesting, with the base color ranging from brown the red, and the markings ranging from black to dark ginger. The age factor also complicates figuring out how different genes affect the color, so it'd be fairly difficult to work it into here.

Here's a couple pictures of amber cats, they're absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth seeing. These are at varying ages.…………
sparklingabsol Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
it needs an option for long fur, but its good
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Student General Artist
Yeah, I wanted to add that, but it's relatively complicated to get everything else to work with it. Hopefully it'll come in later updates, but not the next one I'm afraid.
sparklingabsol Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
the creator is cool now, but my OC has long fur so... :)

White cat, green eyes...
and a pink tailtip xD
SecretsoftheNalco Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Can't wait to see the full version! Good luck at completeing it! Also, you should keep this one, but not in your gallery. You can possibly put it in your and put a link to it in the full version's description. Just to show others who it has changed and if they are still stuck with this version, then they can use it!
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2015  Student General Artist
Thank you! And yeah, that's kinda what I've been leaning towards. I think that sounds like the best solution. c:
SecretsoftheNalco Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
You're welcome! I believe that it might be one of the easier solutions as well. You could also put it in your scraps, but it's up to you.

so awesome
ARVEN92 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've probably already commented, but I just can't get over how beautiful this is <3 I've been looking for a realistic cat creator for ages.
I can't wait for further updates of this, I can feel it's going to be amazing!
thesecretcupoftea Featured By Owner May 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
This is honestly the most amazing thing I've encountered along the lines of creating a realistic cat. The lines, the markings, the spectrum of color available, everything is just astounding (especially the pattern-linked eye color option). Major kudos to you!

Also, I would probably upload the new/full version over this deviation to avoid confusion. C:
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2015  Student General Artist
I just have to say your comment made me very happy. Tbh I left it in my notifications for a little while both cuz I was trying to figure out how to reply, and just cause it made me smile. So thank you c:

And I'll definitely keep that in mind. Maybe I'll put this version in or something, so then I can upload over and still keep the old version for anyone who might want it for whatever reason
thesecretcupoftea Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
:D I'm glad! You definitely deserve it. <3

Oh, yeah I completely forgot about, since I rarely use DA for anything other than finding cool things. x3 That sounds like a great idea, though. I can't wait! ^-^
WinterFlurry Featured By Owner May 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Could you please add blue eyes?
Paleclaw Featured By Owner May 28, 2015  Student General Artist
They're already in there. You have to have white to have blue eyes, and it has to be above a certain level (roughly a third white or so)
WinterFlurry Featured By Owner May 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay. Thanks!

Cloverleafwishclan Featured By Owner May 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
This is great but I have only one minor complaint. I would love to have blue eyes as an option.
Paleclaw Featured By Owner May 24, 2015  Student General Artist
They are an option, but only when white markings are present and set above a certain level. Aside from colorpoint cats, which aren't in this version, that's the only way blue eyes are possible on cats.

I will be making things a bit more clear in the next update though. (:

Personally this has to be the best cat create I've ever seen (Not that I really use them I just love playing around with them) I can't wait to see the full version. If you wanted some help, I could see if I might be able. I'm not bad with coding.

pretty nice but...
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015  Student General Artist
But...? I'm always up for feedback if there's something you think could be improved.

JasperKitty123 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
this was nice,but i am using for a warrior cats OC adution and i cant give her the undercoat or blind eyes.maybe update and add that?
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015  Student General Artist
I don't know about blind eyes, since they'll most likely only change the eye color if there's and injury or illness and if I got into adding things like that, it probably won't be for a while.

But what exactly do you mean by undercoat? Are you talking about smoke, where the undercoatsl is light, making areas with longen fur light? Or are you meaning something to do with the actual fur length or appearance?
JasperKitty123 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
blind eyes im just thinking no iris or pupil,and for the under coat just a slightly differenntly tinted color
JasperKitty123 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
i was thinking like a different tint
kh180 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is amazing! I definitely love the layout of this and the easy way to move around. The realistic cat is great to see since a lot of other "makers" go for a more "cartoony" route.

I can't wait for the full version to come out. Hope to see it soon and good luck!
Kochidai Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015
this is really neatly put together and its fun to mess with the options!
the cat is great by the way, its nice that it isnt another...anime anatomy cat like most of the creators here have

hope to see new updates to this
Couchkissen Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my god! This is just purrfect! This is what I searched for years! All the other cat creators aren't sooo super good, because somewhat is always wrong, sometimes the eyes colors or the main fur colors or other things. But this seems to will be perfect! I'm in love with your cat creator. Love Thank you so much for creating this.
