Free Kitties for New Players

@Kitty.fyi is a CryptoKitties player who recently started something awesome: KittyAirDrop.com.

“KittyAirDrop.com is a way for new CryptoKitties players to get started in the game by receiving a free kitty from the community. Generous players donate their spare kitties to KittyAirDrops and then those are sent to new players when they fill out the airdrop form. After filling out the form and while waiting on your kitty to be airdropped, we encourage new players to visit the official Discord server and introduce themselves to the community - we are here to help!”

This is a no-strings-attached airdrop coordinated by a trusted community member. All the free kitties were donated from generous players.

If you can spare a few extra kitties to help new players get started, please donate them to this address: 0xc273487f0e8b0e55f612f69f5e29074e986180dd

Thanks!

One of your contest recipes is a REAL Fancy Cat!

Did you hear the news?! The CryptoKitties team took one of your submissions from the Kitty411 Recipe Contest and turned it into a real Fancy Cat! It’s out there waiting to be discovered right now!

They used one of the recipes submitted by players (see below), but removed one of the required traits (see the CK tweet here). I have no idea which kitty it will be. Maybe it’s yours!

Change to Integer Notation

We are switching from Kai notation to Integer notation!

There are different notations that can be used to describe a kitty’s genes. The blockchain uses a version that’s difficult to decipher (to make it harder for us to decode the genome). Kaigani was an early player that did most of the work in cracking the kitty genome. He did so by converting the notation on the blockchain to binary notation, and then converting those binary numbers into a single digit (base-58) code. We’ve nicknamed that notation “kai” notation in honor of him.

However, there are a few drawbacks to kai notation. It skips the letter “L” and its use of both numbers and (English) letters isn’t as intuitive for a broad international audience. As much as we’ve appreciated both Kai and his notation, we’re going to be switching over to Integer notation (along with KittyCalc and Kotobaza).

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Integer notation will use two digits for each gene code to distinguish it from kai notation (00-31).
  • Genes will now will match their binary counterparts.
  • Mutating pairs will be easier to identify (any even-numbered gene mutates with the next consecutive number, e.g. 08/09, 14/15, 20/21)
  • Genes can be easily abbreviated (EyeColor_k -> EC19). See below for shorthand.
  • This change might be confusing for a little while. Kai notation was offset from the binary codes (binary_00001 = kai_2) and now we’re switching back (kai_2 -> int_01). I’ll keep both notations in the Trait Chart to help people make the transition.

Alan Falcon has written an in-depth article about the switch to Integer notation.

Clone Kitties

This is a guest post written by @ADHDKitties!

Will there be two cats in the game that are the same?

Well…yes and no and here is why.

Two kitties may look similar, but underneath, they probably have a different gene set. Kitties have hidden genes in addition to their visible traits.

How often do kitties come out looking exactly the same?

This is actually a pretty rare occurrence. In order for a cat to be cloned (visually) from its parents, the kitty must pull all 8 dominant genes from one parent. The odds at that happening are approximately 0.04%. When I bred the pair below, I thought the UI was lagging when kitty was born.

When I looked at their genes, however, I found that they were actually unique. (I used CryptoKittyDex.com to see their hidden genes.)

It’s technically possible for two kitties to come out with EXACTLY same genes, but the odds of that are nearly zero. Besides, there would still be other elements that would differentiate them, like their Kitty ID #, their jewels, their Generation, etc.

So if you have a “Clone Kitty”, count yourself lucky! They’re rare and fun. 🙂
