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!

Please add more eye colors.
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2015  Student General Artist
What colors are you meaning? Currently this has all possible eye colors excluding teal, which only comes with mink and therefore will come in the next update when I add that pattern. If you're meaning just a wider range of shades in the current colors, that'll also be coming in the next update.
caracal100 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
you could also possibly add the ojos azules mutation ;o

Goodness, this is brilliant! I had dreams of one day doing this myself, but I lack the required Flash/game making skills to accomplish this.

I have to ask, though, if there's anyway to incorporate pink noses into the coding, like a mandatory version of the blue eyes? Because white-spotting/lack of pigment would lighten the nose from pitch-black to pink.

But seriously, this looks awesome. I cannot wait for the full version. 
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2015  Student General Artist
Thank you so much! I genuinely love comments like this, I really appreciate it.

I definitely hope to one day have proper skin/nose colors in here, but I'm not entirely sure whether they'll come in the next update. Right now the nose is just completely filled in with the line color to make things easier, but I'd like to have it change (with the ear color as well) based on the fur color, like white markings or tabby. It shouldn't be too complex to actual implement, but it takes a bit of research for color ranges that I just haven't done yet. But yes, I definitely plan to incorporate the pink noses at some point!
Shadow-Chu Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My absolute pleasure! I try my best to explain my share of feline genetics to those who are interested, but I think visuals help way over text... especially in the case of genetics, with A's and D/d, etc. It looks extremely complicated in text terms, and sways or confuses easily (including me lol). I think this will help a great number of people learn about them with ease (I'll definitely be showing my "frequent questioners" a ton).

Aah, I see! Yeah, from red's almost orange/pink noses to blue's dullish-pink, I feel you. :p This all sounds incredible, though, and I'll be waiting with bated breaths. Good luck, and thank you for developing this! ((If there's anyway I can help with research, do let me know!))

SecretsoftheNalco Featured By Owner Edited Oct 10, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I was looking through a book I have on cats and found a breed called the Ojos Azules (means "blue eyes"in Spanish). This is a breed that has blue eyes no matter what, meaning that it doesn't have to have burmese/tonkinese/siamese markings or white spotting. So I thought it would be a cool idea to make that an option (though it is up to you since this is a rare phenomenon in cats).

Also will smoke/shaded/shell and burmese/tonkinese/siamese be in the next update?
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2015  Student General Artist
The gene that causes the blue eyes in Ojos Azules is basically wiped out now, so that's the reason I didn't include it in here. From what I've read, the breed is pretty much extinct now, so the unique blue eyes aren't something you really see anymore. That being said, I still might end up including it in later updates, I'm not sure.

Yup! Smoke/shaded/shell and all the colorpoint line will both be included in the full version! They're two of my favorite kinds of markings, so personally I'm really looking forward to having them in here.
SecretsoftheNalco Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I didn't know that. My book might be out of date?! Anyway thanks for letting me know. It just would be neat if I could make an Ojos Azules character with this! CX

Smoke/Shaded/Shell and colorpoint are my favorite markings as well! Can't wait to see the full version!

May I suggest a front facing view of the face? 

I'd be more than happy to pay for the full version once it comes out. :3

MrBig2 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015   Filmographer
Can't wait to see the full version. When do you think the full version will come out?

Will there be an option for broken mackerel, classic spotted, mackerel spotted, ticked tabby without leg barring, and ticked tabby with leg barring.

Will there be an option for pseudocinnamon, blue ginger, and bluish extremities ginger variants with cats with the orange gene.

Will there be options for different types of white foot markings (toe spots, toes, mitts, socks, stockings colored toe and heel spots), face markings (muzzle, blaze, star, snip, hourglass, chin, and colored moustache, goatee, and smudge), and torso markings (bib, locket, buttons, bikini, entire chest and belly, belly stripe, and reverse locket).
Paleclaw Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015  Student General Artist
As of right now, I honestly don't have any sort of estimate as to when the full version is coming out, but coding-wise it's not too far off, so fingers crossed it'll be soon!

There will be an option for spotted tabbies (broken mackerel) and originally I had wanted spotting to be a slider rather than a button, so it would modify whatever pattern was underneath (whether it be mackerel or classic), but I ran into some problems with that, so I was forced to make it its own set pattern, rather than having it be sort of a level of "breakage." Hopefully I'll be able to work it out in the future so that it can be a spotted slider like I originally intended. As for the leg barring on ticked tabby, right now I'm only planning to have it with the residual striping, but that may change before I release the update. If it doesn't end up in the next update, it will absolutely be in a later expansion (that will probably expand greatly on the tabby options)

I don't currently have any plans to add blue ginger or blue extremities on red based cats. The mutation doesn't currently have enough records for me to be able to get enough info on ranges and how it affects different genes. And while I won't have a "pseudocinnamon" button exactly, the range on the red coloring will include some distinctly brown colors, which actually resemble cinnamon more than ginger. The range on the red based colors are gonna be expanded on a lot in the full version.

For the different white markings, I do plan to have that, but not in the next update unfortunately. I'm planning to introduce a whole new way of using the white markings, which will hopefully involve being able to initially set the amount of white with the slider, but then being able to click a spot on the cat that will have a predefined marking you could add/remove, such as a white chin for instance. It will probably include all the markings you listed. It'll allow for a lot more customization when it comes to white patterns, since there's so much variance on how the patterns appear on cats.

Side note: I absolutely love comments like this, that go into detail asking about some of the more interesting patterns and options, rather than just asking me "are there gonna be blue eyes in the full version???"
TamboYena Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015
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.

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  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.…………

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!

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:
