[PAINTIE GUIDE] Shifty, Heart Gem, Rarity, Costume

29 Aug 2018, 3:46 pm (Edited 25 May 2019, 5:03 pm)
Hello and welcome to this guide where I will explain what each variation of the Shifty Morphing Potion does, what effect each of the Magic Heart Gem variations has, the varying rarities each Furvilla species and colors have so you can quickly check which species and colors apply to which rules, and which species have Costume art done for them.

It is recommended that you read the Knowledgebase Article on the Magic Heart Gems and Paintie Rules along with this guide to have a full understanding what the effects and rules are regarding the Shifty Morphing Potions and Magic Heart Gems.

Without further ado, lets get right into the content we're all here for!

If there's any questions left after reading this guide and the attached links feel free to ping me or an official Furvilla Helper to help with your question!

The Shifty Morphing Potion allows people to use their creative freedom and create painties that go off of the Furvilla bases as long as they are within the appropriate rules.

The Shifty Morphing Potion has a Shifty Morphing Potion Recipe that can be taught to Alchemists to create your own Shifty Morphing Potions. The recipe can be bought from the Quest Shop. The recipe and potions can also be bought from User Stalls. Another way to get a Shifty villager is by using a Magic Midnight Shifty Plush which can also be bought from the Quest Shop or User Stalls.

Things you're allowed to do on a Shifty:
-Use the base of a Common Furvilla species and alter it to go outside of the base boundaries
-Use parts of a Common Furvilla species
-If a costume is applied, use parts of the appropriate costume
-Use the images of the Galactic and Primordial Shifties as a paintie as long as the image is altered
-Upload a paintie that doesn't match a Furvilla base in any form
-Upload a Chibi Sticker on it using the following steps that I lovingly took from Eurynomos 's profile:

Submit the paintie, then send a trade of the appropriate Magic Chibi Sticker and a Magic Elite Heart Gem to Admin-Mat
It needs to be a trade, not a transfer - make the title of the trade the link to the submitted paintie
You will get the non-magic sticker and magic depleted gem keepsake when your paintie is approved
This applies to FD Magic Stickers, this isn't allowed with Festival Stickers

Things you're not allowed to do on a Shifty:
-Use the base of a Super Rare Furvilla species
-Use parts of a Super Rare Furvilla species
-Use parts of Limited Color villagers
-Make your paintie look human

The Primordial Shifty Morphing Potion has the same properties as a Shifty Morphing Potion, but allows users to upload painties that resemble or are humans and humanoids without having to worry about making their painties look too human to pass on a normal base or Shifty. They also have a special tag you can filter called Primal for anyone who doesn't wish to see humans or humanoids. This tag can be found and turned on/off in your User Settings.

The Magic Elite Heart Gem allows your villager that has a Limited Color applied to have a paintie that is heavily edited to the point it won't fit the original base anymore. This means you can now mix parts of your Limited Color villager with parts of Common Furvilla species and doesn't have to match the Limited Color base anymore.

To apply this gem to your villager you must first upload your paintie into the queue and send an item transfer to Admin-Mat with your Magic Elite Heart Gem. Once the paintie is approved and the transfer accepted Admin-Mat will send you back an Elite Heart Gem that you can use as a keepsake item for your villager.

*Note: These rules only apply to villagers who have the appropriate Limited Color applied to them

**Double note: These rules DO NOT apply to Limited Color Festival Chibis!

Things you're allowed to do with a Magic Elite Heart Gem:
-Use the base of a Limited Color Furvilla species and alter it to go outside of the base boundaries

-Use the base of a Super Rare Furvilla species
-Use parts of a Super Rare Furvilla species
-Make your paintie look human
-Use parts of Limited Color bases that don't match with the current Limited Color applied to the villager

Species rarity

This is a quick overview of which species are Common species, which species are Super Rare species, and which species are Special species with additional explanations on how to obtain them and any rules that may be attached.

Common species:
Bat
Bear
Bee
Big Cat
Bovine
Canine
Cat
Chicken
Corvid
Crocodile

Gecko
Gem Raptor
Gryphon
Horse
Hyena
Lizard
Moth
Mustelid
Owl
Rabbit
Raccoon
Raptor
Red Panda
Rodent
Shark
Skunk
Snake
Velociraptor

Common species can be obtained through Villager Creation. Villager Creation will only offer 3 different colors of the species. The only Common species not available through Villager Creation are the Bee and Gem Raptor. Different colors of a Common species can be obtained through Morphing Potions of the species and through Magical Plush.

A Morphing Potion will allow you to select your wanted color from a drop-down menu and a Magical Plush will already be the color you want it to be. Morphing Potions can be crafted by Alchemists. Different recipes for the Morphing Potions can be found in different Village Shops and through the User Stalls. The Gem Raptor and Shark Morphing Potions are the only Morphing Potions without a recipe as the Morphing Potions are exclusively found through exploration events. To find a Morphing Potion (Recipe) in User Stalls simply search "[Species] Morphing Potion (Recipe)". Keep in mind some names may be outdated and use a different species name, if you can't find the Morphing Potion (Recipe) of the species you're looking for try to search for "Morphing Potion (Recipe)" only.

You can find Magic Plush by completing quests for the Plush Collector, the Plush you get will be random. If you want a specific coloration without going through quests you can find them in User Stalls by searching for "Magic [Color] [Species] Plush". Keep in mind some Plush are also called Magical so if you can't find anything with "Magic [Color] [Species] Plush" try "Magical [Color] [Species] Plush". The Bee, Bovine, and Chicken are the only Common species without non-festival Plush colorations.

The Horse is the only Common species with an alternative way of being obtained which is through the Magic Golden Carrot of Doom Sticker, which was obtainable during the 2018 April Fool's Event and can still be obtained through User Stalls. The Magic Golden Carrot of Doom Sticker Will turn your villager into a random Horse color.

Super Rare species:
Dutch Angel Dragon
Flailadon
Galactic Shifty
Gembound
Leodon
Manokit
Primordial Shifty
Saggitari
Shifty
Snuffle
Wickerbeast

Super Rare species can only be obtained through Morphing Potions or Magical Plush. Different recipes for the Morphing Potions can be found in different Village Shops and through the User Stalls. Magical Plush can be obtained the same way as the Common species Magical Plush. The Flailadon, Galactic Shifty, Leodon, and Primal Shifty Morphing Potions are the only Morphing Potions without a recipe as the Flailadon Morphing Potion is exclusive to the Recycler, the Leodon Morphing Potion is exclusive to the Oceandome Festival shop, and the Galactic Shifty and Primal Shifty are exclusive to the FurDollar Emporium. The Midnight Shifty is the only Shifty color who's Morphing Potion Recipe can be obtained through the Quest Shop. The Flailadon, Galactic Shifty, and Primal Shifty are the only Super Rare species without a non-festival Magical Plush. The non-festival Magical Leodon Plush can only be obtained from the Oceandome Festival shop.

Special species:
Souper Star

The Souper Star species can be obtained through the Magical Souper Sticker that dropped during the 2019 April Fool's Event and can still be gotten from User Stalls. The Souper Star species is unique as it is the only species on Furvilla that you're not allowed to make painties for due to the fact that the costume art of the species is made by Guest Artist Mary Mouse, who didn't want their art to be used for painties. The regular item art of the Pretty Poodle's Soup of Noodles can still be used in painties.

Costumes can be obtained through a Tailor. Costume recipes can be learned from Pattern Books that are gotten from different Village Shops and User Stalls. All Pattern Book recipes require an item that can be obtained through a Crafter. The item recipes can be learned from Blueprints that are gotten from different Village Shops and User Stalls. Costumes can still be applied to villagers that do not have Costume art made for them and can use corresponding Costume parts or a Costume base in painties.

Painties using a Costume base or Costume parts can only be applied if the villager is wearing the corresponding Costume. Parts from different Costumes can not be mixed together in a paintie. Villagers that both are a Limited Color and have a Costume applied to them can not have a paintie that uses the base or parts of the Costume.

Species that have Costume art done for them must have painties that match on the base. Species that do not have Costume art done for them have creative freedom as long as the appropriate Costume base or parts are used.

The Souper Star species is the only species, costumed or not, that can't have painties made for them.
