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!

10 days left until CCSF 2017!Doesn't time fly by quickly?! We have only 10 days left until the CCSF 2017 starts! If you have any submissions, now might be a better time than ever to send them in.

The CCSF Website for this year has also been revealed! Check it out here! Most of what you see there isn't guaranteed to be set in stone, so there may be some changes before the festival begins.

Remember to join the Discord Server to receive updates on the CCSF earlier and to receive notifications whenever there is one!

Children of the Capillata v1.1 Release   Laura | 10/22/2017discuss  comment  log in to like post  6

Zzzzoot writes:

Hey. A while ago Silvak and I, and then later Zequr, made the Children of Capillata metarooms. The concept was originally Silvak's and he made the images for most of the rooms. Zequr made the images for Morpheri.

I wrote the code and the rooms have been somewhat buggy ever since. I recently fixed a lot of the bugs and am now releasing a new version.

Children of Capillata version 1.1

I hope I've fixed all of the bugs but there are always more bugs. So any bug reports or suggestions are more than welcome.

There's a development thread for the metarooms which would be a good spot to report any bugs you find. But feel free to contact me through email, a message on this site, making an issue on github, or something else.
