CCSF Poll #4   Freylaverse | 7/15/2019discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

A couple of people said they wanted the coordinator position to be open to last-minute nominations and volunteers, so... We're doing that!

Also re-opening event suggestions.

Go here to fill out the survey! It'll be open for exactly one week, since we're a tad behind schedule! :)
Creatures Online Conference Slides   Malkin | 7/10/2019discuss  2 comments  2  log in to like post  4

Julien Hamaide, formerly of Fishing Cactus, dropped by the Discords recently and shared the slides from a conference presentation he gave on Creatures Online: Waking up a decades-old AI. It's interesting to see the similarities and differences to C3/DS.

Sorry for the down time over the past few weeks. Once again the server was upgraded to a new version of PHP, and I had to teach myself how to fix all of the new errors that upgrades bring. ;)

Please note that the website is being fixed slowly, with the main focus having been on the homepage, mycaves and forum.

If you come across anything that doesn't work, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you to everyone who still checks in on the site. We appreciate you! :)
CCSF Poll #3 (and results)   Freylaverse | 5/26/2019discuss  comment  log in to like post  2

View the results here!

With regards to the person expressing concerns about corruption - Only three people were nominated in the last poll, and one declined. That's the only reason why there were only two voting options for coordinator. [nsmile]

This in mind, I don't want anyone thinking I'm doing this unfairly, so the next poll addresses the issue. If a substantial number of people believe that the polling was unfair or that nominations and volunteers should be re-opened, I'll gladly do so.

In other news, the most popular theme was Creatures 3's 20th Anniversary!

In addition to the concerns regarding the nomination/voting process, the next poll also addresses festival scheduling! Fill it out here!

Ask Flynn!   Freylaverse | 5/8/2019discuss  comment  log in to like post  4

Ask Flynn!I'm super excited to share this news, everybody!

I'm sure everybody here is familiar with the advice column Ask Laura! Ask Trish was another advice column for a while, over at Helen's Bibble Directory. Trish has been retired for quite some time, though, and Laura, the local agony aunt of the Caves, is pretty busy with her little one! So, when Wesley told me they were starting up their own Creatures column on tumblr, you can imagine I was pretty stoked.

So, head on over to Ask Flynn!

Make sure to read the rules for the blog before you send in any asks, and keep in mind that Flynn is just a little kid, and is running this blog with their hand's supervision! [nlaugh]

Flynn's icon was drawn by the incredibly talented Civvi!

Hi all! Just figured I'd put out a quick poll to get the ball rolling.

This poll is for coordinator volunteers and nominations, and you can also submit event and theme ideas!

Recommended Fixes and Addons Guide   Mad_Doodles | 4/30/2019discuss  2 comments  2  log in to like post  6

Recommended Fixes and Addons GuideHello there!

I wanted to share with the wider community that I have finished the writeup (so far) of the Creatures 3 & Docking Station Community Recommended Fixes and Addons, a guide and list of add-ons selected by myself and members of the community to act as a resource for players both new and old.

This is a living document, and as such, it is always open to suggestions for additions and changes, so if you have any please don't hesitate to get in touch!

I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped with the project so far, from suggestions to encouragement. You folks are a wonderful community to be a part of!
Introducing r/CreaturesGames!   Mad_Doodles | 4/2/2019discuss  comment  log in to like post  11

Introducing r/CreaturesGames!Hello Creatures Community!

Myself and a few others have gotten together to create what will hopefully become a hub for the community as whole, the newly minted subreddit r/CreaturesGames!

We are hoping for this new hub to be a great kicking off point for new and returning members alike to find fun content, blogs, discord servers and more. Sites like Creature Caves here and the discord servers do a fantastic job of hosting discussion and there are some fantastic Creatures blogs out there, but we felt the new user experience of finding these was lacking, something extremely valuable for the long term health of the community. Hosting this hub on a major website like Reddit, we feel, should make it far easier for new potential members to discover us and for old members to see that there's still plenty of life in the community yet!

On a personal note I wish to make it clear it is not my intention, or the intention of anyone involved in the project, for this to "replace" any part of the Creatures Community network. Quite the opposite in fact, we wish to facilitate more traffic to new and existing Creatures sites and sub-communities. Think of us as the little cogs connecting the major gears together. Or glue. Warm, fuzzy feeling, community glue.

So come on down and post memes, fun stories, cool ideas, anything and everything Creatures (and other ALife games!).

- Mad_Doodles, moderator of r/CreaturesGames

PS: We are still happily accepting volunteers for moderator roles, so if that's something that interests you please send the team a message!
Children of Capillata v1.3 release   Zzzzoot | 2/12/2019discuss  1 comment  1  log in to like post  7

Children of Capillata v1.3 releaseHello all. I have released version 1.3 of the Children of Capillata rooms.

Children of Capillata v1.3

This release contains many fixes. Including:
-Fixed CAs (smells) in the Catallipac.
-Improved descriptions.
-Edited graphics.
-Major fixes for all lifts.
-Added missing sound files.

Known bugs:
-Need more food and toys in all rooms except the Universal Hub.
-The Catallipac's lift gets stuck. But this seems to be a very rare race condition. I've only seen it once and have not been able to reproduce it.
-A few graphics glitches.
-Large creatures like sabertooth norns sometimes teleport in Daedalus, which shouldn't happen in such a large room.
-No lift in the Universal Hub.

As always, I'd like to imagine I found all the bugs, but that probably isn't the case. There's a development thread for the metarooms, which is a good place to report any bugs you find. Making an issue on GitHub is also a really good way to report a bug. But feel free to contact me through email etc. if you'd like.

I'm sorry this video took so long. It's also 40 minutes so you should probably watch it at x2 speed. I'm way funnier sped up anyway.

Click here for the Day 14 releases!
