Poll: Hippocamps Ask You to Choose the Next Horse Breed!

Last time, you picked the hippocampus as the next horse breed you wanted to see. Since then, the hippocamps have gotten bored with their other horse friends, and want a new breed to come to the land. So, which breed do you think it should be?

Note: You can select multiple options in the poll, so if you like more than one breed, or can't decide, pick all the ones you like!

What should be the next horse breed?


Last time I ran this poll, I received a lot of really great suggestions, so I added many of them.

There are a couple notable ideas that were suggested that I decided not to add to the poll, but that's because I hope to use them as something special in the future. I'm talking about Sleipnir and the Mares of Diomedes. These are both great suggestions (and Sleipnir has a special place in my heart), but they are more properly boss creatures. When I include them, that is what they will be.

  1. I am very exited to see a kirin in this mod! I was going to try to mention that idea to you, as kirins are my favorite mythical beast. I do hope it gets added next.

    2. What I was going to say is that, Yeah! I am exited as well! I would love a Kirin in the style of this:

  3. I am actually writing a book that features a creature that is somewhat like a Kirin called an Aerion. They are half horse, half dragon with a bunch of abilities (which I listed). They look like large horses with Dragon wings, and their colors vary greatly.
    1. They can fly at very high speeds for a short period of time
    2. They have the ability to use some kind of magical weapon (fire, lightning, poison, etc.) that can be identified by their color.
    3. Will fight anything that threatens them when wild, and will fight off anything that threatens whoever they consider their master (one person only) however they can.
    It seems like the kind of creature that would be really rare and hard to obtain, but really worth it when you do find one. I'm not pushing for a completely different species or anything (unless you want to [which would be amazing]!), but I just wanted to post my ideas in case you wanted to use any of them.

    1. Cool! Thanks for the input! It looks like Kirin is currently in the lead, but the hippogriff is very close behind it. I already pretty much know what I plan to do if the hippogriff is chosen, but I'll have to do some thinking to figure out how I want to make the Kirin breed if it wins.

    1. also for the undead horses it would be cool to see all the type as in a zombie hippocamp and a skeleton unicorn.

    2. I agree that zombie and skeleton versions would be cool. I will have to think about how I could make that happen.

  5. i'd love to see Arion( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arion_(mythology) ) or Sleipnir( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleipnir ). I also wouldn't mind seeing the hippogryph especially if it opens up the potential for us to see a gryphon or other non-horse mounts in the future. Also wouldn't mind seeing centaurs, even if they were more NPC then mount.

    1. Arion is a cool mythical horse that I had not heard about until you mentioned it! Thanks for posting the link! Sleipnir is one of my favorites, too, and I definitely want to put both in the game in some way.

      Hippogryph leading to gryphon.... Yes, you are correct that I'd be halfway there, and the thought *has* crossed my mind.

  6. I'm so excited for this mod! I've been wanting a mod like this for a while, but could never find one.

  7. I love how this mod isn't too "Girly" to be fun for myself and others. One thing: If the Kirin does win, you have your work cut out for you: That thing is bad@$$.


    Also, a word to the wise: You should make it so that, on April Fools 2017, all Hippo-type horses have Hippopotamus Models. Just sayn'


    Anyways, nice to see this mod isn't abandoned!

    1. I'm glad you like the mod! It is looking like the Kirin will win, and I agree that I will have my work cut out for me.

      Your April fools idea is definitely a fun one. No promises, but I'll keep it in mind.

  8. One other thing: Nightmares shouldn't have wings. That isn't how they look in pictures and it renders Pegasuss(pegasi?) useless, also, there was a bug where, if bred with a Nightmare, a Pegasus would gain the Nightmare's wings and lose its own, but they would not be able to fly. Only a minor issue among much greatness, but still.

    1. I disagree! :) I'll check into the bug you reported, but Nightmares in the world of the Ultimate Unicorn mod have tiny wings.

      I don't know if you have noticed, but tiny wings function different than big wings (and each can be passed on to baby horses, but I forgot which gene is dominant). Tiny wings do not offer as much maneuverability in the air (turn too much at once and you'll drop to the ground). However, tiny wings allow a horse to effectively run on air and jump to gain altitude, they allow a horse to fly faster than horses with big wings, and they can also be used to fling fireballs when the horse is near fire (and uses the wing buffet attack).

    2. Ooooooh. I get it. I guess it was just an personal preference thing. Also, the bug was in an older version of the mod. It may have been fixed.

  10. I think it would be really cool to add a Soul horse. It's like a ghost horse, pretty much. It doesn't have hooves, they kind of fade away, and they float. I think they would also be a bit smaller than a Destrier. They leave behind ghostly fire, which is blue, but it doesn't burn anything and you can walk in it. It would have faded pegasi wings, and it would be slightly scaly, like a Hiccocamp. It would have a white aura and a unicorn horn. You can only obtain this horse by killing all five horses (Pegasus, Hiccocamp, Destrier, Unicorn, Nightmare) in the same room, and a Soul horse will spawn. The only way to tame it is to feed it an enchanted golden apple. Since it is a ghost, you cannot use a regular saddle. To craft a Soul Saddle, you would have 4 string in the corners, a saddle in the middle, and a Unicorn Horn, Pegasus Feather, Destrier Hide, and Nightmare Hoof in the remaining spaces. Only once you tame it are you allowed to ride it and equip the saddle. The horse would have lots of health, and if it does "die," it will respawn in the same place where it was created. These horses are able to fly and run through walls when ridded. Once tamed, this horse can be named once, and it is only loyal to the person who tamed it. I hope you like my idea, I love your mod, and I hope you consider adding it in. :)

    1. I think that it should grow a tail when going underwater! (It can breathe underwater and lava). Plus it should be fire resistant because it's dead. Also, because this thing would be incredible powerful, there would only be a 20% chance of having it spawn once you killed all of the horses!

    2. This is a really cool idea! Since the Kirin won the New Breed poll, putting it in is my first priority (other than bug fixes, of course). After that, I'm seriously considering putting in the Hippogryff, too, since it also performed very well in the poll.

      On the side, I have been playing around with new saddle ideas, so I especially like your idea of a special saddle for the new breed you designed.

      Another thing I've considered is a "Design the new breed" contest. If I do that, I think your ideas would make an excellent submission.

  11. Could you maybe add Sphelnir, the 8 legged horse?
