How to chose realistic horse manes for your units

2017-09-30 Khaiell

Horses may have many different colours. However, contrary to what many people believe, they are not entirely random. Mane properties are defined by a finite set of pretty well known genes. Let the machine spirit pick them for you!

Mane-o-matic

Just like my hair-o-matic made untold ranks and files of troops look good, the mane-o-matic promises to do the same for noble mounts.

It randomly chooses mane colours out of a pool of some realistic, popular ones:

  • Chestnut
  • Bay
  • Black
  • Gray
  • Palomino
  • Dun

Check it out under the Automata tab
