The lobster grid
It has been suggested to me that, because of the lobster being grouped in color groups, perhaps the color grid could be re-ordered to show this better. I have made this grid; do you guys prefer the old "regular color order" version, or the new "grouped by lobster color group" version?

Current version

Grouped by color group

Re: The lobster grid
It's still a MASSIVE picture.
Maybe you can cut it up in 5 separate pictures?

Re: The lobster grid
Grouped by colour is much easier to follow, but yes, breaking it up into 5 separate pictures would be good.

Re: The lobster grid
I do like that idea for the current colors - but if they ever decide to introduce LE lobsters things would get awkward if there were 5 grids. What if there's wine/gold, and then later wine/purple? Do I make a sixth grid for "LE colors"? what if a booch box drops lime/magenta, where would that belong?

There is a danger in not doing something because "what if". I mean, should we get rid of all color grids because what if GH adds a new palette of 256 new colors?

*IF* GH decides to do something, we can go from there. Considering the lack of developers, I think it is very likely that nothing will ever happen.

If someone wants to put in the work to improve the yppedia, I'd say go for it. Be bold.

Re: The lobster grid
They don't need developers to spawn a lobster in any existing color - but fair point. I prefer when the things I add are future-expandable, but for now I'll just go and split up the grid since that seems to be what people prefer to see and in the case they do release LE lobsters, we can decide what to do then.

Re: The lobster grid
Fashionably late to the party but I'd love the grid to be changed to be in colour groups, if that's still one image or 5 different i don't mind.

However I was looking at the Spider page and that grid bothers me too, do you think we could do the something similar for the spiders? like a spider box grid and then the mystery/gold box spiders?

Re: The lobster grid
Yeah, although not as bad as the "5 in 1" of the Lobster, the spider grid does look a lot like a "2 grids in 1" grid. Probably is worth splitting.
