These are so cool!!!


I want to stress that this whole thing is WIP (work in progress). We're still working out the kinks with UGC, but we want to try to get your creations in game. The images above depict a level populated with a bunch of Space Barracudas, but that was for judging preview purposes. We can't guarantee that these will be in the final game, but we'll continue to explore this as an option.

Thanks to everyone who contributed in this challenge. I hope to see you guys enter the next one soon!

-MC


Update: We're choosing some of our favorite entries for preview IN DARKSPORE! Check out some of our faves in this Sporecast.



Check back soon for the winner announcement!


Deadline Passed!

Overview: In this fixed morphology challenge it's up to you to modify our template creature to fit the bio provided below. Your entry should be in the form of a creature tagged mcbarracudachallenge based on the template provided. Entries will be judged on creativity, adherence to creature bio, how well they animate.

Space Barracuda
Bio: Once tiny sea creatures, the space barracudas are now larger and via gravitic powers, able to “swim” through the air on land. Dangerous and unpredictable, space barracudas use their gravitic abilities to teleport themselves and their prey. Prospectors and fighters should exercise extreme caution around these bizarre creatures.

Template restrictions: You may not modify (scale, move, remove) the spine or mouth. You may add parts anywhere.

Also, what are these things for?

Space Barracudas can swim through air, but Chuck Norris can swim on land.

Interesting. A simple template could allow for a lot of variety.

After all this time, nothing's changed. Everyone in this "community" is in it for themselves. Maybe there's some exceptions to that rule. Maybe you're the exception to the rule. But if you're honest with yourself, you'll probably realize that you're not. Those who give comments only give them in hopes of getting those comments returned and becoming famous someday. The haters stay because they aren't willing to let that one time go. Maxis isn't around because they're doing something else, trying to get money on some spore spin-off. There's nothing but filth and despair as far as the eye can see. You call this vortex of greed and anger a community? Ha. That would be funny, if it weren't so sad. So I don't want to be here. There's a saying I'm well aware of around here... "ragequit, return as alt". Honestly, I don't see myself doing that anytime soon either. But if it makes you happy, you can believe that I'm still here. But I won't be. Because I know for a fact that there are better places to be. So toodles. Enjoy your wasteland. I don't like it, it smells too bad for my sensitive nose.

TL; DR: Lol Ragequit.

This ragequit note needs to be longer and contain more caps lock.

A Dangerous Predator who can float through space and swim between atmospheres. No where is safe from a pack of these fish. They however taste delicious and are hunted with high-tech spears, called Har-Poons. They are then battered and served with fried segments of root vegetables. This dish is favoured on Britainia-7, and is known as "Fish and Chips!"

FIRST ENTRY! WOOT!

I'll enter.

Hey MC, can I use invisi-limbs to make it look like it's swimming? The PNG would be broken though.


A lot of my post count is from Melvin. Also I've been banned twice for no reason.

I may be tired of these things, but this template actually has potential in my eyes. I'll edit this post with my entries.

EDIT: Nevermind, I've realized that I'm only good with templates if I'm allowed to actually meddle with them. -_-
