Creatures Needs YOU!!!   raimian | 4/20/2017discuss  log in to like post  10

Since summer of last year I have been discussing with Gameware the possibility of a update to C3/DS.

I have great news: Gameware have agreed to let a few lucky community members update C3/DS on a voluntary basis, with NDAs of course.

I will need Windows, Mac, and Linux programmers to update the engine and tools to current OSs. If you are a Creatures fan who knows C++, please contact me to discuss. I am on CC chat most days from 12pm GMT onwards.

If the warp/online content is restored as a result of these updates, I really think that some life will come back to the CC. One of the main things I really liked about C3/DS was the ability to freely chat with others about the creatures sent and received, what agents/breeds are good, or just whatever.

The warp and other online abilities brought an interesting sense of connectivity/community to otherwise fairly lonesome gameplay. I know its in space and is supposed to bring a sense of vast emptiness, but it was always great to "show off" things and have discussions with others so easily, while you were playing the game.

Unfortunately I do not know a lot of C++, but I hope someone is up to the task of updating the game a bit!

Just came back to Creatures after like... a decade of hiatus! THIS IS EXCELLENT NEWS!

I'm extremely excited about this.

yes, when done the updated version will be released for everyone as exodus through gog (paid for) and stand alone Dockingstation (for free).

Bit confused here. What does this actually mean? That a few programmer gets permission to update the engine, adding in new features etc that will then later on get released to everyone or what?

Definitely an interesting announcement. That said, while I've got a lot of love for the Creatures series I'm not too keen on a for-profit organisation signing up volunteers to complete work for no pay, let alone with a NDA hanging over their heads. Surely Gameware could offer some kind of compensation for those willing to put in the time and effort?

Excellent! Looking forward to it!

Oh my God. This is the best news I could have imagined hearing in coming back to the community after my absence. I sincerely wish I had the skills to contribute. As I do not, I must limit myself to wishing everyone who does the very best of luck!

What does this actually mean/change? Since a NDA is involved I'm assuming some sort of license is involved?

I believe somebody's already trying to create a DS server, I forget their name:B

How about something like Hamachi for people who want to trade privately?

This is surprising news, to say the least.
