Creatures Online: Frozen Eggs   Malkin | 7/27/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

In this week's Creatures Online update, the team are implementing more components for the Crafting Machine, including a wheat plant which drops wheat for cookies.

The team are also currently working on a genome issue which affects all genomes created by crossing two parent genomes - all eggs laid by pregnant norns. At present, they will not hatch.

The Android version is still being worked on!

Creatures Online: Crafting Machine!In this week's Creatures Online update, the team is working on some features which can't be shown because they're still in progress. Instead, we're getting our first glimpse of the Crafting Machine!

It will allow us to get some objects by combining various components, which are released when norns do actions. (For example, watering a plant, using a toy, tickling a critter...) If we get impatient, we can buy the components for the crafting machine with our Golden Eggs, but all the ingredients will be available to us through regular gameplay.
 
Creatures Online: Selling Objects!   Malkin | 7/14/2014discuss  8 comments  8  log in to like post

Creatures Online: Selling Objects!In this week's Creatures Online update, the team worked on some technical fixes.

Whenever we sell an object, a message is now sent to the server, which means that selling objects will be easier to handle. A "stage" server for testing patches has been implemented. The presentation of the science kit is being worked on. The genome patch tool mentioned in the last update has been finished.
 
C2toDS Beta 3 Returns with a Surprise!   Laura | 7/12/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  3

Liam has returned from his adventures in the United States and brings with him some much-awaited news! Thanks to the generosity of Ylukyun, C2toDS Beta 3 now has a new home and is once again available to download... With an added surprise!

Liam wrote:
You'll also note two new downloads - a hotfix for the frogs (which must be REMOVED first, then injected), and C2toDS at night, which... you can probably guess what that does.

Have fun, and don't forget to leave your comments and feedback in the corresponding topic!
 
CC Chat Has Moved!   Laura | 7/9/2014discuss  11 comments  11  log in to like post  3


I'm excited to announce that CC Chat has moved to its very own server, created especially for the Creatures Community and our purposes! :D

You can now visit us at creatureschat.com to directly join the #Creatures IRC channel, or you can continue to use the chat applet here at Creatures Caves. For IRC clients, you will need to change the server address to irc.creatureschat.com (SSL users: Port 6697).

Please don't hesitate to ask myself, or one of the chat operators, if you require assistance with the changeover; we'll be happy to help. Happy chatting! :)
 
Creatures Online: Genome Updating Prep!   Malkin | 7/4/2014discuss  6 comments  6  log in to like post  1

Creatures Online: Genome Updating Prep!In this week's Creatures Online update, the team worked on a tool to allow them to modify the norns' genomes in our worlds in case they need to update the genome past release.

They also worked on an improvement of the loading screen, and prevented the game from crashing due to its search for a pregnant male norn model!

You can also check out a current group shot of the Cacti on the Fishing Cactus Facebook page, released for Social Media Day.

Introducing Albian Warp!   cptmashek | 6/27/2014discuss  16 comments  16  log in to like post  17

Hi there! I would like to let the community know about Albian Warp, DS Warp system replacement being built by ham5ter and me.

Albian Warp is a community replacement for the long-defunct Docking Station multiplayer server. There is no real feasible way to reverse engineer the original server protocol as there are no packet dumps anywhere, so ham5ter came up with a workaround. We are now implementing this workaround so that we can all start sending and receiving creatures (among other things)!

We do a lot of our discussion in the forum here, and in the CC Chat. Today, we also opened a blog, where we will be posting significant development updates.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments (and please read the forum post to see if it has already been answered)!

Oh look, a green light! [ngeek]

Creatures Online: Turkish and Java   Malkin | 6/8/2014discuss  3 comments  3  log in to like post

In this week's Creatures Online update, the team fixed a bug with the nests, and the game now supports a Turkish localisation. In addition, a better transaction history was added, a small modification of the developers' way of building versions sent for testing, and the team also implemented a way for them to easily interact with the Java libraries specific to Android.
