i have to do it like i do in fact, because the final result of the sprite is made from 2 sprite (aliased for border, and no aliased inside) to have the smouth result without the weard black pixel around

someone know if it is possible to make a custom egg ? and if it is the case, can we also make an agent that can add a custom egg to all the official breed? (even if not i have allready made the custom egg, but could be awsome to have custom egg to any official breed/custom breed you want)

egg preview

update, i have like 50% of all the spritesheet ready, head, tail(both part), body, uper leg
in fact all the sprites will be ready very soon!

i have a bug that make my sprite appear like that :

Glitch

and i have all my files in bmp 24 exported from toshop with "row something" checked, look normal in sprite builder...

and , it's just my oppinion, but it lost a little bit of quality in the process...

@ Papubuntu, if I remember correctly, Ghosthande had a guide about how to get rid of these green mess, she made cool breeds in a 3D programme as well and encountered the same glitch

the breed will be ready (sprite aspect) in few days !
some news about the gen and agent?
and about the egg thing?

I haven't had a chance to do a whole lot with the genome yet, but now that it's the weekend I'll be able to get stuff done! So far it should be immune to toxins from the norn meso stingers.

Cool, i think that i will do a spetial metaroom for it, with principaly nes critters/bugs agent that are spetialy designed to be the carni norn food, and like deadly creatures for any other norn, ( toxic not inclued)

But I also want to make a toxic ettins and a toxic grendel, so my toxic norn will feel less lonely

YES toxic grendels! Looking forward to that one so much. :D

To the norn too, obviously. :D


Do you have your sprites online somewhere? I may be able to make an egg agent if nobody else steps up or is making one already.

I'm very interested in helping with the metaroom though. Breeds aren't really my thing :P

Your art is amazing, thank you so much for doing this for the Creatures community. Cheers! \o/

I want to make a wole new ship, with at least 2 room, the dark jungle of the carni norn, and the intoxicate part of the ship with the toxic ettins and grendel, and maybe a carnivorous ettins too ( think that the ettins are cute and under used in C3)

Prey ettin for the carni norn could be cool, like when they are killed they drop some meat that the carni norn eat

A bug shaped ship that act like a parasite, we are going to need a story telling personne ! "A crazy shee that gone crazy and grow a parasite ship and the story go wrong and the ship escape, inside apear the carni norn, prey ettins, toxic norn/gren/ettin"

Maybe i will create a discord for the wole project code name "Abominalis"

A lot of things but without coding support, hope the CCFS 2018 will link all the creative together, I'm sure that if all the profile of creatures cave work together we can make a wole standalone version, like DS

ALL SPRITE FINISHED!! By now they replace the chichi, just wait for the rest, so for the slot, a norn slot, (a norn slot with no very great breed allready in it) you can choose it, can't wait!

You work really fast. When you're finished with your breed would you mind putting together a short guide/tutorial with your work flow and tools you're using? Just the process you're taking from the 3D modelling application you're using to having the sprites in game.

ok if you want but it's ... like a "created on the moment" technique to make it the more quick possible (in fact it's my spetiality in game, creativity, optimisation an rapidity)

in fact i use spritebuilder to export all the sprite sheet of like the left foot, in photoshop i place all of them in order from up to down in a *640 image (like the old male, the old female, the adult male....

and in my 3d software i place one by one my own model in front of it and copy it to place it on all the sprites, after i just have to recut the big render in all the different spritesheet

and i study the 3d for 4 years now, and it's my real job héhé

Sorry about my low rate of post lately, but i have a student to take care for 2 week, teaching him 3d stuff ^^

But i take a little time to drow the basic shape of the ship, here you can see a preview with some expalations:

Ugly preview


I am on photoshop to redraw it with my tablet, i will make the exterior and the basic background of the ship (no coloring just shape, all of it will be made, at the end, of hand made polygons)

and maybe some floors, but after that i will share the PSD file and a zip with all the different layers for the no/photoshop users in PNG in the full quality to let all the creatives the oportunity to draw the interior of the ship.

when the ship will have all the inside filled with decorations/ agent/ doors/ house/ vegetation from all of us, this will by my concept to make all the 3d models.

during that time i will do the toxic ettins and grendels

hope this is a good idea !

So it latches on to the side of the Meso, kind of like Terra? You might want to invest in a decorative object for the Meso so it is slightly in-shot.

Also darn, you work fast. You've done in almost half a week what would take me two months. How do you accomplish unfamiliar modelling situations so quickly? My previous two norn attempts across these years have been heavily flawed in spite of the vast amount of information I managed to gather on how to do it.

yes this is why i want to make an "outside" that we will see from norn meso and the other rooms

3D and drawing is my actual job (independant more like a creative "poor";), all my life was about art, all my study (painting, drawing, sculpting, design, mode, 3D) was creative related, and i invest all my money in a 3 years bachelor in a famous french 3d school

When I like something I can invest so much time an energy to learn and product that i think i've farm my speed skill at level 37 at least

if some of you are interested in a skype session with screen sharing to see my working methode on like the toxic ettins I'm ok to do it ;)

And now I'm 28 YO and I play creatures since 1998, allways dreamed of doing agent and breed but... i'm realy shy about my work and, befor learning more deeply my english speaking, I was thinking that creatures was a dead game.

I will update the .rar with the finished walls, and water places and send a preview, hope that will motivate someone! :

I'm sorry I've been a bit quiet on the genetic front, I have been working on the genome! I've just also been quite busy with school and such lately. All the things that make it unique have been added, I just need to do a bit of testing to make sure everything functions the way it should and also change the appearance genes so that it appears as a Carna norn and not a Chichi!

Perhaps Norn T? The only breed I could find that uses that slot are the Beastaurs.

This is all so cool! I love Papabuntu's designs and vision, as well as the concept for the Abomalis ship. I unfortunately lack any programming know-how, but love your conceptual backstory. I would love to offer my writing services for the readme file that would accompany your download pack. I'm happy to send you writing samples and/or discuss further!

that would be amazing Loke! I realy would like a shee that became crasy on the toxic world and create the ship , having some old statues of him or some pictural draw on the wall that explain some backstory ... but nothing is permanent in my mind feel free to share ideas, even crazy

There are very few Shee characters, but the ones we have are pretty cool. The Lone Shee is refined and absentminded, but inquisitive and certainly empathetic to the plight of the norns, who were abandoned on Albia. I don't have the Banshee Grendel story, but I know the Banshee was cruel and wicked, and probably saw the Banshee Grendel as the beginnings of some sort of biological weapon. Our Shee would be a different type of Shee, one who, as you envision, wound up on a toxic planet, and perhaps used his genetic engineering skills to build a ship from the biological aspects of the world. I can PM you some of my ideas when I get back from the gym, as well as some of the details you have (what kinds of COBs, bugs, plants, terms, etc will be in your metaroom. And just to clarify, you have your Carna norns, which are nearly done, as well as a toxic Ettin breed and a toxic Grendel breed that are part of this project? Were there any other breeds?

Thx Malkin !
Loke, yes all the breeds are for abominalis, for now there is 3 new species, like you say, the carna norns that lived in the top part of the ship, maybe there will be carna ettins and grendels but I think that the toxics are the "most wanted", the next will be the toxics grendels, I will do a video on that one also, and an othe on the "sprite making " part of the work

and I just has an idea, in the ship there is a very huge toxic sea area, maybe a toxic-aquatic breed could be greate to, but seem very more difficult to do (genetic and coding part) but could be so cool to have a 3d sprited aqua toxic norns

and that is possible to have a custom egg? allready have the model ready !

and is it possible to make an agent that replace all the egg by custom ones ? (but specific for all the breeds like bengal egg for the bengal, toxic egg....) now that i have an egg model texture ready, it's realy simple to make sprite egg and, i think, would be a very cool detail to the game, and can also do custom egg for any other custom breed, like an agen that give a specific sprite to the egg that correspond to the type of creature (grendel ettins or norn) and to the slot of like the head sprite of the creatures that is inside

I'm so sad to see all creatures 4 like games project.... dying but with all the skills from the community that I see we can make creatures 3 and DS so much better that any new games!

A toxic aquatic breed shouldn't be too difficult to make genetics wise, and a swimming agent already exists, though Creatures don't navigate well in water due to the lack of scent that travels through it (which there is also an agent for.)

I recently had a little snoop through this thread and your project seems interesting. I'm a gengineer generally, so if you have use for one I would be willing to lend a hand down the line.

if you could, i'm on toxics grendels sprites actualy so soon I will have a bunch of sprites in need of genetic ! Toxics ettins are also on the line, thx for your interest !

so cool to see more people joining the project, there is an Abominalis tread on the Caos Coding Cave discord and I will do a discord for the project itself because of the many different features in it !

It is definitely possible to replace existing eggs.c16 sprites with new ones, besides adding new egg sprites to the existing eggs.c16 file.

Adding a custom egg sprite to each different breed is a bigger challenge, but certainly not impossible.

I'm still open to help you out with any of the coding for the project. I'll join in to the Discord later on, if I can find it. :)

The Zoran Norns use custom egg sprites. I'm pretty sure I was the one who coded that.
