The Boneyard & other unfinished projects

Hey all!
Does anybody remember the Boneyard from way back?
It was a project that me and a few others were working on that kind of fell apart. It was a cool idea, though.

Anyway, now that I'm returning to Creatures (my name back then was blue_eyed_alley_catz) I'm hoping that I could revamp some of those old projects and salvage what I could of them. I can't find anything left of the Boneyard, but I remember the cool ideas we had. If anybody can find anything left of it, that would be cool.

It looks like my norn breeds have been lost, which is OK since they weren't that great anyway. It would be nice to redo them all and re-release them.

Anyway, I was able to find a copy of my serial killer norn. That was nice anyway. :)

I'm not going to be a very active member, but I'll be on here in my spare time. I'm learning how to code, as I'm planning on becoming a computer programmer. I might learn a bit of CAOS and try making some add-ons. If anybody would like to work on the Boneyard with me, let me know. I'll be needing an artist if I do decide to pick the project back up again.

What a coincidence, I was just thinking of the project the other day.

It might have been ten years ago since it stopped. I remember the coder just disappeared one day and that was the end of it.

I don't have anything left from that project either.

Do you remember anything about it?
It's been a really long time. I have a hard time remembering names. Were you involved in developing it?

I was! I did 3d rendered sprites. I was gobbo_the_civet.

I don't remember any of the other names but yours, though. I know Zzzoot tried to help us with coding once the original coder left but we didn't get anywhere.

Oh nice! Well it's cool to be reunited :)

If you need another coder/helper, feel free to poke me. :D

The people involved can be found here

Sadly, both links don't work :(

I can't do graphics though.
Except if you're fine with circles like the Betaship. XD

Thanks Pilla :D I'd love it if you helped out, since I'm a novice when it comes to CAOS.

I'm uploading my serial killer norn Quilla to the adoptions. Hopefully it's the first in a long line of old projects that I'll be restoring... she should fit in well with the metaroom if we ever complete it.

I'm thinking that we could maybe have 4 levels: the first is the graveyard, the second is an underground mad alchemist's laboratory with various ingredients, a cauldron, potions, and experimental gadgets with unknown effects, the next is a dungeon with various medieval torture devices and cages, and the bottom level is Hell with fire and demon critters and stuff. Maybe we could create a grendel version of the magma norns to live there or something, with little devil horns and tails.

I'm thinking we could just make the bare bones metaroom first, and slowly release new agents for it, so we don't get stuck like we did before.

Gobbo, are you in?

Sounds like a cool project.

I think this is a bit overambitious. I think it would be wiser to start with a few pests or weeds that can be used on their own. Just to see how focused our efforts will really turn out to be.

I don't think I should sign up for an entire room but I would really love to make something for creatures again so I'll promise to model and animate for a few agents.

That sounds wise to me. Let's finish one thing at a time so we don't end up with a bunch of unfinished things.
Thanks Gobbo. I appreciate the help!

Well does anybody have any ideas of what kind of agents we should make first? I vaguely remember that we had some things planned like bats and moths and I think potions.... but I can't remember a lot about it.

I'll probably be active during the weekend, not so much the rest of the week. But I'll make what I can while I'm available. It'll probably be a slow process, but we can gradually make a couple of cool things.

EDIT: Well I'm pretty eager to make some things, so I'm going to practice my coding skills by making as many simple agents as I can. If anybody wants me to make anything, let me know...

try something simple first. A multiple bite stargazy pie directly injected in the game. Maybe some halloween themed weeds or fungi later when you think you're more experienced.

Yeah, those sound like good ideas. I was actually thinking about making some fungi at some point.

Right now I'm working on learning to edit genomes. I'd like to make a new genetic breed. Once I'm done with that I'll start working on some agents.

I need to finish moving into my new apartment by the 15th because that's when my next semester in coding school starts, so I'll be pretty busy for the next 2 weeks, but for now I'm gonna just play Creatures for a couple days because I don't feel so good. :/

Hey, I'm in class for C++ and I'm about to get into coding things for creatures once I upgrade my computer. (My parts are supposed to arrive on Monday). I would love to get involved. Feel free to message me.

Awesome primrosenorn. Will do.

I just want to let you guys know I'm still here! I haven't given up on the project, just super busy irl at the moment. Once things settle down I'll be able to spend more time dabbling.
