CCSF Wolfling Run Starts Later Today   KittyTikara | 12/9/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post

Today is the last day to submit creatures for the CCSF wolfling run. The run will start at 4 pm CST (or 10 pm GMT) today and will be streamed on Twitch. That time is also the deadline for creature submissions. Either send your creature to kittytikara(at)yahoo(dot)com or email me/reply in the thread with what sort of creature you want. Before the run starts, any gaps in the teams will be fill by me to help keep the teams balanced. For example, if Team Ettin only has three creatures, and Team Norn only has 6, then I'll add three Ettins. I'd prefer to have your creatures in the run though!
CCSF 2015 Day 3: Summer's in Winter   Grendel_Man | 12/8/2015discuss  3 comments  3  log in to like post  2

With a lovely new banner from Mea, the CCSF 2015 has now moved on into its summer days...despite the fact that it's technically winter. Well, if Christmas in July is a thing, no reason for July in Christmas to not be a thing.

The first release of the day is up now, and the others will be following as the day progresses. Keep an eye out for them!
CCSF 2015 Day 2: Past's in the Future   Grendel_Man | 12/7/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  2

CCSF Day 2 is now underway. The first release of the day will be up shortly, so go check it out when you get the chance!

...Yeah, I don't have a lot to say this time. A bit of a side effect of me not choosing to release everything in one go. But seriously, go check it out.

The title will make more sense by the end of the day. I promise.
CCSF 2015 Day 1: About Time   Grendel_Man | 12/6/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  8

After how much of a headache I had (and likely caused) trying to get everything together....

The CCSF 2015 has properly begun! I thank everybody for your patience, and I hope you will all enjoy it for what it is.

The first releases will be up shortly, so stay tuned!
CCSF 2015 Wolfling Run Officially Open   KittyTikara | 12/6/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post

The CCSF Wolfling run is officially open for submissions! The thread has more details, but basically it will take place in Ainadia with seasonal food sources, random events, three competing teams, and be streamed on Twitch. What species of creature you submit determines which team you are on and the only rules for submitting creatures are that they can't be immortal, violent, super breeders, or geats. So please send your creature to kittytikara(at)yahoo(dot)com. If you don't have a creature to submit, reply to the thread or email me with what sort of creature you want.

The run will start on December 8th or 9th, depending on how fast the teams fill up.
CCSF Technical Difficulties   Grendel_Man | 12/6/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

Unfortunately, the CCSF website still has a few kinks that need work out (most noticeably, it doesn't seem it's available to the public just yet)!

Depending on how quickly I can get these worked out, I may have to delay the CCSF 2015 a little longer (but it'll still begin by the end of the week, hopefully). I apologize for the inconvenience and hope everyone will enjoy the festival when it begins.
CCSF 2015 Community Wolfling Run Details   Grendel_Man | 12/4/2015discuss  8 comments  8  log in to like post

News about the Community Wolfling Run is in!

It will be hosted by KittyTikara, and will be a mixed species run for C3/DS.

Please send all creatures to kittytikara(at)yahoo(dot)com.

I'd prefer no one send in any super breeders, violent creatures, immortals, or Geats. Besides that people can send whatever creature they want. If they don't have any creatures to send in, I'd be happy to create one for them.
CCSF 2015 Delayed... Again   Grendel_Man | 11/28/2015discuss  2 comments  2  log in to like post

Due to technical difficulties (read: Grendel Man is a horrible slacker and also needs a crash course in how to set up a website), CCSF 2015 sadly needs to be delayed one more week.

The new start date is Sunday, December 6th. There will be no more delays after this.

Do note that this doesn't mean the Flashmob is delayed - that will still take place on November 29th at 5:00 PM Eastern - that is, tomorrow.
CCSF 2015 Crunch Time   Grendel_Man | 11/22/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  7

This is just a reminder that the CCSF 2015 starts on November 29th; in other words, a week from today!

If you haven't submitted something yet plan on it, now would be an excellent time to get on it.
New Grandroids Interview   Laura | 11/13/2015discuss  10 comments  10  log in to like post  9

New Grandroids InterviewHey, remember Grandroids? Last month, Steve Grand was interviewed about the project's inner workings and progress for the How We Get To Next website:

The Brain in the Machine

He's currently teaching the Grandroids how to pee! :P The article also discusses Steve's background, Creatures and Lucy the Orangutan Robot, so it's definitely one to get your teeth stuck into. Especially if you weren't a backer on Kickstarter!

And did I read correctly that Steve hopes to have something he can release as a "commercial product" sometime during 2016? I think I did! :o
Creatures Online in Hibernation   Laura | 11/2/2015discuss  33 comments  33  log in to like post

Creatures Online in HibernationToday we've learned the disappointing (but maybe unsurprising to some) news that development on Creatures Online has been suspended due to a lack of funding. :( The original source of this announcement can be found on the French website, Pockett Videogames, but here's a rough translation:

Originally released in 1996, Creatures is an artificial life program by Steve Grand, who worked for Millennium Interactive at the time. It was followed by Creatures 2 in 1998, and Creatures 3 in 1999. These games had marked many players. After a long wait, we were expecting much from Creatures Online by Fishing Cactus (development team) and ProSieben Games and Bigben Interactive (publishers). The project continued to move in April, but according to our information, development is now on standby due to lack of funding. However, various companies continue to announce and mention Creatures Online on their respective websites. The game was announced on iPhone/iPad, Android and PC/Mac. Hopefully a solution will be found!

So, what's next for Creatures Online? Come and discuss your theories and thoughts on this latest development in the forums!
Happy Halloween!   Laura | 10/31/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  5

A massive "BOO!" to all the ghost norns, banshee grendels and trick or treaters of Creatures Caves! However you celebrate today, we wish everyone a fun and safe Halloween! Our downloads section is like a witches' cauldron, ready to bubble over with some spooky-themed agents, breeds, COBs and metarooms for you all, with some new additions from this past year too:

Also, don't forget to check out Malkin's extensive Halloween Addons list, which has everything you need to turn your worlds into something creepy! Maybe a ghoulish graveyard, a haunted house, or a bogeyman's lair? [nscared]

If you've decorated your world for Halloween and would like to share it with us, post a picture in the screenshots gallery! Perhaps we can have a competition, if we receive enough entries, and the winner can have bragging rights. Just try not to scare your Norns too much! [nskull]
Garden Box Backdrop Community Project   c1anddsaddict | 10/27/2015discuss  comment  log in to like post  4

Garden Box Backdrop Community ProjectThere are lots of Garden Box decorations available now, but there's something missing: backdrops! I've decided to start a community project to rectify that! Can you design a background?

As for size and shape, I would like them to be either the size of a Freedom Project room (shown by the green lines), or made to fit in or in between existing Garden Box decorations.

Feel free to be imaginative or general with this. You can submit anything from a plain white plaster wall, to an extremely detailed sci-fi style panel with all kinds of screens, buttons and knobs. Feel free to use any theme you want; the more variety, the merrier. You can submit Holiday-themed backdrops, but keep in mind that this won't be released before Halloween this year.

I would prefer seamless backdrops, especially for things like plain brick walls, but it's not necessary.

The deadline for submissions is November 27th, so the agent can be released for the CCSF. You can post your backdrops and read over the submission guidelines in this corresponding topic.
More CCSF 2015 News   Grendel_Man | 10/22/2015discuss  1 comment  1  log in to like post  5

For the time being, I (Grendel Man) will remain coordinator of the CCSF 2015. However, due to a variety of circumstances, CCSF 2015 has been delayed.

The new start date is Sunday, November 29. Hopefully the extra month will give everyone some more time to prepare!

Despite the date change, the other details about the CCSF will remain the same (particularly the fact that it will last for a week unless I get enough submissions to make it worth lasting longer).

I am also looking for someone to run the CCSF Community Wolfling Run. If interested, contact me at ccsf(dot)2015(at)yahoo(dot)com.
