Happy Easter 2018!   Laura | 4/1/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  3

Happy Easter!Happy Bunny Day, everyone! However you're spending this Easter, may it be an egg-cellent one, filled with fun, happiness and more chocolate eggs than you can manage to cram into your mouth! :D

There are also plenty of cracking Easter-themed downloads available at Creatures Caves to help you celebrate! Be sure to check out Malkin's egg-ceptional Easter Addons resource article, as it has everything you need to enjoy the Easter holiday with your Norns and spans all the games in the series! Perhaps an Easter egg hunt in the Norn Meso with the Eggstravaganza Patch Plant (DS), or the Easter Egg Pack (C3/DS)?

If you've decorated your worlds egg-specially for Easter, then feel free to share them with us in the Screenshots Gallery, we'd love to see them! And if you've managed to read through this news post without cringing at my shameless puns, well done. No more bad yolks here, I promise. ;)

Albian Command v0.1.1 for Creatures 2The next version of my wolfling run monitor for C2 is available and I'm looking for people to test it.

Some features are: game speed adjustment, creature observation, auto-naming, egg overview, pregnancy actions, import/export control and also an early implementation of a peer-to-peer "warp".

You can check the release notes or report issues on the Albian Command github page.
Userbars Available at Request!   Doringo | 3/8/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  2

I am now taking requests for custom userbars! Please see the forum thread for more details. Here are some examples:

As an added bonus, anyone who receives a completed userbar from their request will have their name added to a norn name lottery. During the Adventure Run which I am running over at Observing Albia, if your name is randomly chosen from the list when a norn is born you will have that norn named after you!
Observing Albia   Doringo | 3/3/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  6

Observing AlbiaHello Creatures fans! Four days ago I launched my new blog, Observing Albia. Observing Albia is a Creatures blog designed after the popular Creatures blogs dating from around 2010 to roughly 2012 and is dedicated towards no specific game in the series in particular, but rather the series in general.

At the moment I am mid-way into playing an Adventure Run, which is a new concept of run which I originally wrote up around November 2017. Simply put, in an adventure run you start in one world, such as the default Albia in Creatures 1 and you have a user-defined objective to achieve, such as reaching a certain generation or getting a certain amount of natural norn eggs. Once you reach that goal, you send a few norns to the next world. Typically the user can only send natural norns born in the current world into the next world, but the main point of this concept is that the user is able to define their own experience.

I hope to see you there and most importantly I hope you will enjoy Observing Albia!
Civvi's CCSF 2018 Gift!   Laura | 2/27/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  5

Civvi's CCSF 2018 Gift!In anticipation of the upcoming CCSF 2018, Civvi has had the great idea of offering a custom icon to anyone who wants to help plan it or take part, drawn to order:

"So I wasn’t really sure what I could contribute to CCSF 2018 but now I think I do. Any admins/mods from CC here, or people helping to put together CCSF this year, can reach out to me here and I will draw a custom icon for you for use anywhere! It can be of a norn or anything really, I can guarantee I’ll try my best. :) Some of my work is already in the art section here, or on Tumblr at CivviTheCivilian, if you want to know what my stuff looks like. ❤️ I’ll put a limit at ten to start with and see where to go from there!"

If that isn't an incentive to get involved, then I don't know what is! ;)
CCSF Preliminary Discussion Forum   ylukyun | 2/23/2018discuss  1 comment  1  log in to like post  5

CCSF Preliminary Discussion ForumThe CCSF Preliminary Discussion Forum has been launched. This is a place for Creatures Community members to gather and help plan the upcoming festival. If you'd like to have your say, it only takes a few moments to register. It's a little more in-depth than a survey or poll, and my hope is that if we get everyone's input, we can make this year's CCSF the best ever!
Astro Norn 16th Anniversary Pack   Doringo | 2/15/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  4

Astro Norn 16th Anniversary PackToday marks the 16th Anniversary of the Astro Norns, so to celebrate I have prepared an agent pack for you all to enjoy!

This pack contains three agents and six objects in total! The first two are balls which are designed after the patterns of the Astro norns. These balls have unusual physical properties! The third is a vendor which dispenses edible moons with varying phases, some phases being food, some being fruit and some being classed as seeds!

Liam Wants Your Screenshots, Please!   Laura | 1/22/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  5

Hey everyone!

I've been planning on writing a conference talk on why the Creatures Community is awesome and why modding is an excellent route into game development - but I'm not able to play DS anymore, and therefore can't actually get screenshots of any of the stuff I worked on for reference/inclusion. Does anyone have any rad screenshots of:
Liam Wants Your Screenshots, Please!
- Aquatilis Caverna/2/teenyweenyaquatilis
- Terra Pluvialis
- Creatures 2 to Docking Station
- The Biodome
- ... or anything else I worked on? I would love to see them!


To contribute with your screenshots, please see the forum topic for more details. I'm sure we can find a few gems on our hard drives! (By the way, the scene pictured is the beautiful C2toDS At Night <-- click link for expanded image!) [nsleepy]
C-Rex's Tenth Anniversary Livestream   C-Rex | 1/22/2018discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

C-Rex's Tenth Anniversary LivestreamThis Thursday will mark ten years since I officially became a member of the Creatures Community, so I have decided to do a livestream (with commentary) of Docking Station to mark this special occasion! It will be roughly an hour long, and will be taking place this Thursday at 8:00 PM GMT (3:00 PM EST).

You will be able to view the livestream on my YouTube channel here. If anyone has suggestions for what I should include in the livestream such as metarooms, breeds, etc, feel free to share them in the forum topic. :)

Creatures Featured on Rock Paper Shotgun   Laura | 1/16/2018discuss  3 comments  3  log in to like post  12

Rock Paper Shotgun has an article titled "Artificial life finds a way: the legacy of Creatures" and it's rather good, up to date and recognises the (fairly incredible) community-based legacy of the series. Read it!

Thanks for sharing this gem with us, Gulliver and to everyone who took part! It's a great read. :) It's lovely to see a well-deserved nod be given to the CCSF, to members of our community and some of their awesome contributions last year, to Grandroids, and even to Creatures Caves itself.

Hopefully with publicity like this, the Creatures Community can attract more attention and "cheat death" for many years to come. 8)

CCSF 2017 has ended, what about 2018?   Pilla | 11/29/2017discuss  comment  log in to like post  7

Image from the Creatures Graphics StoreroomI hope all of you had a wonderful CCSF this year!

There have been quite a few contributions this year.
If you haven't already, make sure to visit the 2017 website here.

There will still be some after-CCSF posts there so stay tuned!

Since there's a lot of activity around this period, I figured it would be a good idea to start up the surveys for CCSF 2018.

You can find the survey here
(thank you for creating the survey, Ylukyun!)

Please fill it in! The survey will probably run for 2-ish months, so everyone has a chance to fill it in.

Many thanks to Doringo for organizing this year's CCSF!
