Well, it is sunday, so I should get this out of the way. Tommorrow is Monday, (Derp) so that's when the week begins. I'd like to say that I don't have enough time to be on every minute, so during the week, If I don't respond don't assume I missed your post. I will try to get in updates whenever it's possible.
So, you want to know more? Neon Enterprises is a massive corporation (Club) in the Galaxy you call home. You have probably never heard of it before! We provide entertainment and quality creations to the city of Sporum! But this is where you come in! Neon Enterprises is looking for members just like you!

Pretty simple rules, you should know them by now.
The Ranks This is not only our ranks but our current members. The whole company revolves around a point system for you, the member! Points are earned by many things, each of which will be detailed in the respective sections! To upgrade in rank, you'll need to reach a certain point requirement. However, if you break any of the rules or I feel you don't participate in our random conversations enough, then I may not upgrade you. If you reach the amount of points needed for the next upgrade, just remind me and I will do it!
Note: Most clubs have an unrealistic rank reserved for the boss. Mine is different. I do have my own all-powerful rank, but if your willing to work really hard, you can be a Neon Executive even though CEO is technically the highest rank.
Requirements: -Get 10,000pts
-Get 10 achievements
-At least one feature
-Must have placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a contest.
Essentially, you'll need to be great at all the sections provided.
Special Position=Neon Judge -Cbfstudios
Bad Ranks: Fired-You've been warned.
Arrested- You've been banned.
Obviously, these are negative ranks. You do not want these, but you won't need to worry as long as you act decent.
Badges Badges are similar to achievments except they are more unique and accesible. Help advertise Neon by putting these in your sig! Copy the provided codes to your sig. In the future I will have another update which provides a siggy for each rank. These are like glorified achievements.
If I think you are a frequent contributor and post semi-frequently or more, I will award you with this. You will be free to put this in your sig, and it will be put in your 'badges' section in your profile's. Here is the code:
If you have reached a seniority of 2 active months, you will be awarded with this badge.
If you have 30 creations in either archive (GA or Regular) you will achieve saphire rank. (Mispell on purpose, Grammer Nazi's.) Copy this code:
If you complete 2 achievements in all the categories, you will be bestowed with this. Code:
Show that you are a True Brony!
Rank Reward Badges These kind of badges are more accesible and basic. One for each rank! Sport them in your sig with the provided links! However, only put in your rank. Another benefit of ranking up is being awarded with these. Plus, you get brownie points and an achievement for doing so. So go on, sport us in your sig!
Neon Drone=0 points.
Neon Assistant=50 points.
Neon Grunt=100 points.
Neon Peon=300 points.

Words of the Wasteland - All by HRmatthew
This series centers around the Captain. You've been convicted of a serious crime you did not commit, and was exiled to a remote planet. Your adventure begins there, where your career has presumably ended.
Words of the Wasteland You are suddenly dropped off in this remote planet. With nothing but a newspaper copy of your "crime" and a radio, you are left to die on the planet. The only remainders of life is an old spice mine that has been abandoned for decades. But is it really devoid of life? Or is there still a sliver of it left on the land?
Words of the Condemned Your encounter with the Scrap Pirates is abrupt. Hostile and unwilling to negotiate, they will execute you by mutilation at sunrise the next day. But of course, the Captain knows he/she will find a way out. After all, he/she knows that luck is always on his/her side.....
Words of the Forsaken Saved only from the young pirate's intervention, you save yourself from a rather brutal death. But the Pirates are still hostile to you...unless, you complete their test of survival. No food. No water. Tied to a post. Three days. Will you survive? Will they....accept you if you do?
Words of Realization After escaping the harsh lands, you stumble inside what appears to be an abandoned military compound. Venturing further, you find out that it was in fact part of a massive underground shipyard, building for an unnamed race for their campaign of conquest. But you need to escape. You need to survive. There is nothing here that is of use.
Words of Hospitality By displaying excellent survival skills and adaptation, you have earned yourself the title of a scrap Pirate. You begin to learn about the Pirates as a people, a culture if you will. But the leader would like to see you take on one of their missions. A simple survival test was only the beginning....
Words of Identity You embark on your mission. Unfortunately, your transport breaks down and you are forced to camp out in what appears to be an abandoned resort. After you set up camp, you begin to learn more about these somewhat mysterious Scrap pirates...

As the title states, this is indeed the Creator Box. This is where creation-related things occur, such as Creation submission and review, creation bio's and a Creation Help section.
Creation Review An essential way to earn points is too submit creations for review. What is another unique thing about this club-er, uh...corporation? It's freestyle! I don't care what your style is. A good creation can be simple, complex, alien, underwater, I don't care! What is important is that it is a good creation. Creations must hit a certain point benchmark in reviews to make it to the archive's. If you have submit a creation for review, do not submit another one until your creation/set has been reviewed. Also, the submit creation must have been made in the last week. I don't want people sending in every creation in their sporepedia to rank up too fast.
Speaking of reviews, that is the section you are reading right now! This efficient rubric shall be used by yours truly when doing reviews. At some point, I will hire judges to help score things, but unless this gets a lot of members, that is not needed right now.
Total for Creation: 75pts
Overall Look: /15pts
To make the cut for the archive, you need at least a B- which is 55 pts.
Creation Bio's Submit a creature, building or vehicle bio for 50pts each! Write the name of your creation in bold, write a description, (Example, for a creature, write it's history. For a building, write it's history/function. Vehicle, write it's history/function.) Then attach a picture to it.
(BTW, it is quite interesting to have "Devoured" use bite while in edit mode.)
Would you like to know the sad story that tells the demise of this innocent creature?
You see that unlucky fellow? The one with that hairy, stinky beast? No, not that wretched old beast being swallowed, but the poor old guy that forced the stinky beast down his throat. I'm sure that fellow's going to need mouthwash, and maybe even get his stomach pumped.
Now, let's back up a bit, so I can give you a bit of info on that unlucky fellow. He went by the name "Johnny Ziehemmier", and was a very nice sort of guy. He always was witty, friendly, and quite good looking (for a pit monster). Sadly, his species was not known for being friendly, witty, and good-looking. In fact, they spent their freetime DEVOURING people. Johnny he
re found this quite disgusting, and utterly horrible. So instead of devouring live, red meat, he became a vegan.
A vegan you say, Riddler? How do you explain the fact that he swallowed a man whole? Now, now, let's be patient. I'm getting to that.
So, anyway, Johnny was always picked on for his strange (but very healthy) diet decisions. His packmates jeered at him, throwing out horrid names, and even flung raw-meat across his nest one day. He ignored them though, and quietly continued to eat his salad. The fact that their bullying did not even effect mild-mannered Johnny enraged his packmates, and so they went to further lengths to annoy him. One day, they quietly rigged his ranch bottle so that it squirted upwards and into his face. That morning, Johnny, as he was simply applying condiments to his salad, he picked up the ranch and let a stream of white squirt into his face. It seeped into his eyes, ears, and nose, and though he was deeply annoyed, he pretended that he had not just squirt ranch into his own face. When he accidentally set his massive chompers over some hairy old fool, why, he was completely unaware of his deadly deed.
Only a second later did her realize that he had broken his vegan habits, and let out a horrible roar of anguish, so horrid, so terrible, that his packmates fled in fear.
When the hairy old fool's friends set out to look for him, they immediately found Johnny and slayed him on sight.
So, what you say, is that this naturally carnivorous and highly aggresive creature named "Johnny" turned vegan, squirted ranch in its own face, and then accidentally devoured a man whole? Yes. Riddler, one more question if I may-- Of course, my friend. What have you been smoking? _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
The Lucaus (or Lucausians) By MobsterMania
The Lucaus are a race of bipedal wolf-like creatures. They are a mix of a scientist/military archetypes however their culture is not despot based like most empires of a similar archetype. The Lucaus are acclaimed (in their sector) experts in their studies of genetics, biology, and in some respects, weapons and military vehicles.
A somewhat brief summary of their history begins on their home planet of Lucausian. After arising from a primitive state, the first cities arise. At first, these are city-states, many of them warring against one another or forming alliances. Some states are devoted to pure military service, some are devoted to scientific pursuits, and others were a mix of the two. The mixed ones generally were superior to the others. After a series of wars, several city-states formed to become whole nations while others were either conquered or razed. Multiple nations formed across Lucausian. Like the city-states, they were either military or scientific based, and mixes of the two due to lots of cultural diffusion existed. As science advanced in the scientific nations, (their knowledge at this point is parallel to our knowledge of science today) some of these nations collaborated with the military based ones. At this point, advances in genetics have led some Lucausians to promote a so-called "Race of Utmost Perfection." While some of these requests were met with belligerent responses, one consortium, the "The Higher Race Of Lucausian" achieved considerable power. Using the resources of the military nation and the technology of the scientific nation, all of Lucausian was eventually united by this totalitarian alliance. Only small, landlocked countries with isolated pockets of small villages remained, and were so politically insignificant that the Higher Race decided not to bother them. After several decades of continued development in both science and military, the Higher Race decided the galaxy should be "genetically purified" as well. They called this campaign "Galactic Perfectionism." They built a massive fleet of warships to lead the campaign, and trained millions of soldiers and mobilized thousands and thousands of vehicles. The flagship was to be the "LSS Perfectionism" a colossal ship armed with what the Higher Race called WBC; Weapons Beyond Comprehension. Along with thousands of cannons, laser vulcans, and railguns, these WBCs were powerful devices that could obliterate fleets larger than the Galactic Perfectionism one, and could wipe out entire empires in an instant. The Galactic Perfectionism campaign started the with the invasion and complete conquest of the Lucaus empire's nearest neighbors, including major ones. The campaign went so well that the WBCs did not need to be used. Around the 8th conquest of a major empire (major meaning an empire with significance in the sector) the Fleet Commander's advisers urged him to stop the conquest.
While the Higher Race had sufficient technology to take over the entire galaxy, the adviser told the Fleet Commander (also the dictator) the conquest could not work. They knew, after countless studies of military history with the Higher Race historians, that the Higher Race would be crushed by a much larger alliance (the Galactic Council) and would have to suffer heavy embargoes, reparations, and more bad things that could destroy the empire, its knowledge, and perhaps the Lucausian race itself. The Fleet Commander angrily disagreed, claiming the WBCs could take care of them. He killed off all of his advisers, and continued the conquest. However, the historians and advisers knew that he would disagree, so they had secretly conspired with (of course) rebel societies in the Lucaus empire.
The Rebellion against the Higher Race began. Turmoil in the empire caused the conquest to return home and suppress the rebels. By that time however, the rebels have claimed much of the empire, with a few outposts and colonies still under rather weak Higher Race control. Domestic military defenses, including railguns that could destroy warships instantly, now controlled by the rebels demolished the Galactic Perfectionism fleet. The Fleet Commander did not want the rebels to hijack the LSS Perfectionism, so in the chaos the ship barely escaped the empire to a safehouse in a remote, uncharted planet. While trying to land the massive ship, rebel fighters followed it and assaulted the ship's crew, which resulted in the death of the Fleet Commander. The rebels have won the Lucausian civil war. Not knowing what to do with the LSS Perfectionism, the rebels had scrapped much of the ship to rebuild damages in the empire and be construction materials for the new Lucaus empire. However, legend has it that the WBCs and the massive unnamed engine used to power the Perfectionism were either left on the planet, or brought to secret storage facilities whose location has been lost in time. Several Captains and historians go on expeditions to search for them, however.
Slowly, the Lucaus empire began to recover and shake off the totalitarian influences of the Higher Race. The advances of sciences and leftover Higher Race technology still made the empire powerful, though. Further genetic advances were able to remove unwanted traits without the need to sterilize. In addition, these advances were able to benefit the Lucaus citizens as a whole, such as slightly increased metabolisms and cures for many diseases once thought incurable. Despite the Galactic Perfectionism campaign, other empires still eagerly traded with the Lucaus, which brought prosperity. Businesses specializing in genetics provided services to other empires, which brought in wads and wads of cash. Today, the Lucaus empire is a prosperous one, known for their scientific achievements in biology.
Creation Help Are you having trouble at making the archive in your scores? Come here! If you need help, come here to look. Skilled creators, post a tip for 10pts each, and I will put it here for those who need it.
Sean10M wrote:Well here's a tip for the Creature Creator: How to sink parts into the body of your creature-
This is how.
#1: The part needs to be centered for it to work, if its been split or its been made asymmetrical it wont work.
#2: Move the camera onto the side of you creature and grab the part you want to sink into the creatures body.
#3: Pull the part into the creatures body (the bigger the part is the farther it can be pulled into the creatures body).
#4: Resize, rotate, and reshape the part to you hearts content.
You can use this technique to do things like hide mouths inside the creatures body or to imbed parts into the creatures body.
