Why is the graphic for the enhanced drayk, the "shaper monarch," of a guy in a cloak? Is it because I'm using MicroPhage's editor?

I don't know if it's MicroPhage's editor (there are too many for me to keep straight), but it's definitely the result of using an editor. I suppose if MicroPhage's editor is the only one you're using, then yes.

Dikiyoba.

The Sarasphillia editor also has a "shaper monarch", but he looks like a normal red-robed shaper. Is that what you are referring to a cloak?

Yes, it could be a guy in a red robe. But I think he's supposed to be a giant purple lizard. That's what he looks like in the creation selection screen.

[Edited for spelling.]

Normally, the upgraded version would be a big purple lizard, just like the normal drayk, only purple. if it looks like a shaper, then its probably because of an editor. ( I just stated the obvious didn't I.)

I might be misinterpreting your question, but shaper monarch is a shaper, not a drayk, so his graphic will of course be of a robed shaper.

I may not be asking right. I'm using MicroPhage's editor, so I have access to all the creations. So I hit the button to create something and up comes the screen with the little pictures and descriptions of the creatures. Each one has, as you know, a "+" button that shows the enhanced version of the creation. For the drayk, it shows the purple lizard, and says that it is called a shaper monarch.

If I choose that creation, what appears next to my character is not a purple lizard, but that red robe guy.

Maybe this is an inside joke from MicroPhage that I don't get because I haven't played G1-3?

Ah, MicroPhage replaced the cryodrayk with Shaper Monarch (he actually appears about halfway through GF4), but couldn't replace the picture in the creation selection screen.

Precisely. I believe it is a pretty standard G4 Editor upgrade. The one I use also has Unbound and Golems for Ur-Drakons and Ur-Glaaks(sp), respectively.

Thanks everybody. But why replace those graphics at all?

Because people wanted to shape Shapers. Why else?

Really, the drayks shaped drayks. This progression was inevitable.

Again, precisely. But it is the height of strange to see 8 shapers walking behind you, blasting other Shapers.

Anyone else go to Dikiyoba's link and get the awesome Scientology ad halfway through the article? Clearly Diki has turned to the dark side, well done.

Well, I'm a Christian, which makes it less than awesome, but yes, I did get it too.

Dikiyoba turned to the dark side a long, long time ago. In this galaxy, though, not one far, far away.

The ads were just there to show an example of something that can cause a roflmao.
