Fixed Morphology Challenge
In this fixed morphology challenge it's up to you to modify our template creature to fit the bio provided below. Entries will be judged on creativity, simplicity, adherence to creature bio, and how well they animate. Show us what this creature should look like in the Laser Tank Template Challenge!
Using the template above, submit a creation that shows us how you think the Darkspore Laser Tank NPC should look. Decorate and paint the creature, but don't alter the base template in any way. Entries will be judged on how cool they look. The second template can be used for non C&C players.
Bio:Possessing brains and nervous systems cloned from the planet's strongest warriors, laser tanks were once beings who fought the Darkspore. Formidable foes, laser tanks are highly resistant to energy attacks, and can slice up to three enemies simultaneously with sustained energy beams at nearby foes. They create “laser walls” to cage in their foes at penalty of dismemberment or death.
Here's a sneak preview of the attack the Laser Tank uses.
Keep this in mind when designing your templates.
For example, rather than crafting a turret on top of the template, you may want to have an equator that sits around the orb of the body that would make sense for lasers to fire out of from 360 degrees around. Whether you use parts, paint, or both to help achieve this is up to you!
What will the challenge winner(s) get? Maxis will hand pick the winner in this challenge. The winner(s) will be featured on Spore.com and may be included as NPC designs in Darkspore!

Yay! A template named after me! (Well, this is my alt, but I can't use Luckyburdock on the forums since I changed my email and the whole thing became too long to enter) When I heard it was a Tank template, I was hoping we'd FINALLY get a vehicle. Not so. Will we ever get a contest in the vehicle editor?
Luckyburdock/LaserTank - same guy, different alts.
