Check out what Designer Alan Copeland has to say about the Baby Dragons he created for The Sims 3 Dragon Valley! For more information about The Sims 3 Dragon Valley, and the Purple Baby Dragon, click here.Over the past few blog posts I’ve discussed the brazen, fire-breathing Red Baby Dragon and more recently the earth based Green Baby Dragon and its love for all things shiny or harvestable. Today I want to write about what is arguably the most unique of the dragons, a dragon that thrives on joy, humor and happiness. A dragon that is so dang cheery it literally pukes sparkles and rainbows.This is the Purple Baby Dragon.While Green Baby Dragons may have them beat in the tree hugging department, Purple Baby Dragons are the hipster-est of hippies in the Baby Dragon community. They want nothing more than to see everyone around them having a good time. In fact even the grumpiest of Sims can get a steady dose of Fun and Social just by hanging out with a Purple Dragon thanks to the Mark of the Purple Dragon moodlet.While talking to a Red Dragon can raise your Athletic Skill and talking to a Green Dragon can raise your Gardening Skill, Purple Dragons will cheerfully discuss the particulars of raising your Charisma Skill so you can meet the Sim of your dreams.But what happens if your Sim is a bit of a wallflower or doesn’t know where to find the special someone? No worries, the Purple Baby Dragon has more summoning abilities than any other dragon! Purple Dragons can summon up one of your friends, help throw an amazing party, or introduce you to someone completely new!But one of the coolest aspects of owning a Purple Baby Dragon is its Rune Charm ability. Purple Baby Dragons can imbue your Sim (or any Sim you choose) with massive bonuses to their mood, making them happier and more likable for up to twelve hours!If you’re looking to meet that one in a million Sim, the Purple Baby Dragon will be your ultimate “wingman”.I love to hear your ideas and suggestions, so follow me on Twitter @SimGuruCopeland

In response to a Twitter user, SimGuruCopeland seems to have (potentially) hinted that Dragon Eggs may be one generic colour when they appear (have no clue yet… other than I’d like if you grew them), and that you can influence the tint of the dragon baby that hatches by specific conversation points. Thoughts?

Check out what Designer Alan Copeland has to say about the Baby Dragons that he created for The Sims 3 Dragon Valley! For more information about The Sims 3 Dragon Valley, and the Green Baby Dragon, click here.Last week I introduced you to the Red Baby Dragons of Dragon Valley. They are impulsive, brash and focused on the physical. They are aligned with the element of fire and will happily help you smite your enemies in a Fiery Torment.But not all baby dragons in Dragon Valley are as brazen or hotheaded. Some are deep thinkers with an inherent understanding of this land, and the untold riches it can bring forth. They understand that a job is a way of amassing wealth and there are few things that they love more than gathering treasure. They are Green Baby Dragons.Green Baby Dragons find all of Red’s fire-breathing rather crass and fairly destructive. Green Baby Dragons would rather talk about gardening, which can help your Sim build their skill quite a bit. But if your Sim is getting impatient with their garden, Green Baby Dragons can also summon a harvest for all of the plants on your lot.Green Baby Dragons are collectors at heart and they love all things shiny. Some has said that being so close to the earth has given them a better understanding than most of the many wonders it holds. Is your Sim a little greedy? Then they should befriend a Green Baby Dragon who can call upon gold and gems from the very earth!As I mentioned last week, there are benefits just to having a Baby Dragon around. With the Green Baby Dragon your Sim will get the “Mark of the Green Dragon” moodlet which gives them the mental fortitude to control their Hunger and Bladder.All of the Baby Dragons have the ability to fly and having your Sim take them outside to practice flying is a wonderful bonding experience for them both and a great way to build your Sims Fun and Social.Next week I’ll be back to discuss a bit more offbeat Baby Dragon, but in the meantime, contact me via Twitter at https://twitter.com/SimGuruCopeland with all of your Baby Dragon questions.

All three are featured on SimGuruCopeland’s desk!
In a recent forum post by the Guru we are informed that they aren’t allowed to tell us ANYTHING about upcoming store content, but that a completely unrelated desktop picture wouldn’t be an issue.
Now for those who don’t know me… OFB… seriously… I live and breath this pack. What do you think this means?

French Sims Fansite SimCookie asked SimGuruSarah if there were any worlds planned to release after Dragon Valley, and her response seems to lean towards the possibility that something is in the works.
What do you think? There were a couple of worlds that haven’t been done that showed up on Store Polls, including the ever-sought-after Bridgeport replacement for a city.
For some retrospect, here is a screencap I took from one of the previous polls. I’m all for some sort of Asian world personally!
