Creatchi: An Online Creatures ExperienceEver wanted to take care of a norn, grendel or ettin while browsing Creatures Caves? Well, now you can! Allow me to introduce an all-new website feature here at Creatures Caves: Creatchi, the online Creatures game. You may select a Creatchi egg to hatch a new, random Creatchi, or you may adopt an offspring of some community users' Creatchis (available in the future after some Creatchis have already bred). Please read the Official Creatchi Care Guide for more information.

Special thanks to Ghosthande for creating all of the incredible sprites. It wouldn't have been possible without her! Also, special thanks to the following for their help testing and giving input: Laura, Ghosthande, Jessica, Malkin. This project was over 30 days in the making. I hope everyone enjoys it!

Are we supposed to be able to delete them? I clicked on an egg out of curiosity (to see if we at least got the option of species) and wound up adopting it. I noticed there was a delete button on it - I tried using it, but was told that I don't have the authority to do so.

Note: The underscore in my username is supposed to be a space - it's "Grendel Man," not "Grendel_Man."

NO ONE can delete Creatchis. They are ARTIFICIAL LIFE@!!

Just kidding. But really, no one can delete Creatchis. Thanks for letting me know about the button. Should be fixed now. :)

Yay! I also kind of love that the announcement Creatchi bears a striking resemblance to my test one, Elliot. Very excited for everyone to enjoy this feature!

I had my reservations about this when it was first announced, but now that I have my own I have to say that I rather like it.

Something that's mildly bothering me: at the moment, all three species of Creatchi call themselves "Eem." Grendels never use "eem" - they use "fig," "beh," "ung," and "grndl." Ettins sometimes use it, but (to me at least) "eem" is more of a norn-exclusive thing and ettins are better identified through the use of "er" and "etn."

Granted, I figure the real reason the Creatchis use "Eem" regardless of species is coding convenience, but it's something to consider.

Actually I haven't played with grendels or ettins in a while so I just assumed that they all say "eem". But now that you mention it, I guess it does seem odd.

I'll be sure to teach grendels and ettins some new pronouns soon. :D Thanks for the feedback!

I like "ung" for grendels and "er" for ettins too, it sounds more like something they'd say. :)

I always remember Grendels calling themselves Fig. And either Ettins or also Grendels were Bub.

Is it just me, or is anyone not getting extra supplies yet? I have a feeling there's something I've not done yet to get another ball or food or something. But, something like posting a COB, not sure I could do that until I learn CAOS all over again ;) Also, I'd need to be a Staff Member.

Just curious, as I see older Creaturechi's fully satisfied, yet mine is now needing more fun and I've run out of all my toys.

Now that you mention it, I haven't gotten any new food or toys either and my grendel's only about an hour younger than yours. Granted, I haven't be participating half as much.

EDIT: Nevermind. Just got an apple.

I've gotten toys, but no food yet.

Off-topic, but normal members are allowed to upload COBs and whatnot. They just need to wait for them to be approved first.

I haven't gotten anything yet :S I feel silly for having not figured out how!

I hope you don't have to post COBs or breeds to get items, as I am not all that into coding..! ;_;

Off-topic again: Posting COBs, breeds, etc. requires no coding experience (in CAOs or otherwise). You're allowed to post things other people have made - all you need is an image and a website link (or the .zip file, if the website's been defunct for a while).

On topic: I have a suggestion - perhaps there could be a "weekend feeder" for Creatchis so that people who have to take time off the site can leave without their Creatchis suffering too much? The downside to this is that the thing could be easily abused, but I imagine there's several ways to get around that.

I think earning a temporary weekend feeder would be useful. Earning it like earning the rest, and use it like the rest whenever needed, and like the rest (rest as in toys, food, medicine) it lasts such a time, then the Creatchi begins demanding food again like normal.

That way it wouldn't be so easily abused.

Couldn't that be accomplished by feeding and playing with your creatchi with the cheese and teddy items, when you win them?

Also, off-topic, if anyone would like suggestions of COBs to enter into the database, feel free to ask me. :)

Malkin: Can't win cheese and teddies when you're not on the website, now can you? :P

The feeder is meant for people who have to take time off the website. They give their Creatchi a feeder, and when they get the chance to return they can come back to a Creatchi that's still alive and reasonably healthy as opposed to half-dead or completely dead.

If it's a planned absence, though, you'd be able to try to win cheese or teddies and fill them full before you go to school on Monday?

For a one-day absence, sure. But I'm talking about a week or more here. I don't think cheese and teddies last that long (unless I'm not understanding the system fully here).

Underneath any creatchi who doesn't have a green, full, 'social' bar.

When you're looking at your own creatchi, look up at the menu bars up top. the second bar has a creatchi button. click it and it will take you to the creatchi list. I'll link it here:

creatchi meet page

Like Dropbear said, all creatchi's that don't have a full green bar for their social stat will have a button underneath them saying "meet" or something like that. Click it and your creatchis instantly interact and the social bar goes up a little. keep playing with creatchis until the bar is full.

When your creatchi's bar is full, you can't "meet" or interact with other creatchis anymore. (Until the bar drops again)

To interact with creatchis you've already "meet" before, check you're creatchi's stats. Click the number next to "friends" for a list of all the creatchi's you've interacted with. :)

That's all i know, sorry for the long reply!

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions, everyone.

I just finished teaching grendelchis and ettinchis how to speak properly. ;)

To be honest I don't think the weekend feeder is necessary because if you neglect your creatchi for two days it will still be very alive on Monday (provided it wasn't already almost dead on Friday).

Also: Items should be a bit easier to find now. :)
