Ecosystem - New Metaroom   
JadeS

Hey everyone,
I've recently been creating a new metaroom, tenatively named 'Ecosystems'. The problem I have is my newness to CAOS, so I'm looking for someone who has a grasp of the language and is willing to help out.
Basically anyone who can do: plants and animals with life cycles, seasonal coding, lifts (i can probably do these myself), weather, toys, and doors like the Aquarium airlocks. Not bad, right?

As an incentive for any prospective people here are some screenshots of the finished background and a little about what I want to accomplish:

Basically, I enjoy the idea of 'adventuring' norns. Too often norns sit in one corner and socialize, and can not be bothered to explore, like the norns in C2. I'm attempting to create a metaroom that allows the owner to block of rooms or certain corridors to encourage norns to explore. Also, with a seasonal cycle, the foods in one room might become more scarce while in another there will be more. That's about it basically, so if anyone wants to help, please resond! :)

Even a beta tester later down the road would be great. :)

I can probably do the caos myself... it's just going to take a long time.

Yah! Beta Testing! maybe brings that some trouble into my C3. my creatures are so fine and happy, it becomes a bit boring.

I have just loaded some plug-ins for the GIMP I want to test. so I wanted to ask: do you need someone who could make a few images?



SpriteBuilder is not working on my PC, but maybe anybody knows where to find the GIMP plug-in for c16 files?

That would be great. :)
I'm currently working on the caos for the lifts... I must admit its a hilarious process.

I'd love help with some spriting. I was thinking of incorporating some of the old plants from C3 into it, but make a lot of new ones, new critters, and definitely a lot more toys. I'm also going for a style similar to C3/DS so it blends in well.
Think you're up for it? ;)
I've got sprite builder up and running well, so any images you make I could probably convert if you can't...

well, with converting old images I can't help. I never played any other Creatures games than C3 and DS :$

Toys would be good. I also got a whole set of plug-ins to make animations ^^

Papriko, the GIMP plugin is available via Cwiki and CCDevNet:

It's made for 2.0 but I have 2.4
Sadly is this difference already too big to get it work... but still thanks for the link.


so, I think that was enough of my GIMP! What are you other people think about the idea of this room? ^^
