very cool man! I actually recently (after months of undecidedness and can't-thinkedness) came up with my own as well. I like how original it came out(its actually based on a drawing I must of done when I was 5 or 6) I just need an artist to help me "flesh it out" , I know a friend of mine who is, but I rarely see him on the net anymore  :-\

anyways, love the creature, my favorite thing about it is the modified tentacle/graber/hands!  :D you seem to very talented in 3D and 2D art  ;)

The evolution is kinda messed up...
It goes from getting the tentacles to not having them
at one point it has what looks like feet then goes back to having fins...Then back to having feet (Only less then before)

Make up your mind!

I don't think it ever loses the tentacles... they're stored inside the psuedo-mandibles, he just didn't bother drawing them in the stages inbetween (since he was focusing on the feet to fin to feet evolution at that time).

As for the fins-feet-fins-feet, look at Sea Lions - as fish they had fins, as amphibians/reptiles/mammals they had feet... then they went back to the water and got fins again... Dolphins and Whales are probably too far gone to survive evolution back into land forms, but smaller creatures like Seals and walruses still spend some time on land, and could probably revert back if the environment forced their decendants to.

I figure, if the aquatic stage (like 3 steps back or so) still spent a lot of time basking in the sun on shores, it's not so far fetched for them to revert back again. Love to see him describe the habitat and climate of his world that brought about these changes, though.

That's a pretty cool creature. I don't know if Spore will give you the ability to put limbs inside the mouth. Good thought, though.

By the way, I love your below-avatar-saying, Jaleho. "El Guapo" is Spanish for "The Good-looking one."

It has them they just sit within the false mouth (psuedo-mandibles). But i did not want to have to draw them every picture. It still has them at all stages after it gets them.

Since the beak is the real mouth, and the psuedomandible is sort of an external fake beak or shell, I bet you could just make the psuedomandibles to be something like curved flippers - put a dent in the front of the body, put the beak and tentacles in the center of the dent, then stick two big wide flat curved fins on the rim of the dent. It will work and function just the same (probably).

I suspect there will be a lot of experimenting in the editors - even if they add thousands of parts, we will still be able to come up with something they didn't think of, so we can either modify something they DO have to come close, or muck with the code to modify the editor ourselves.

Or present maxis with a giant list of add-ons we would be willing to pay for in spore 2 :) But hey, that's what this forum is about - giving them ideas for what to put in the game, eh?

PS: The "Infamous El Guapo" line is from the movie "The Three Amigos"

Ok here is a skeleton of my Naucean
(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_skeleton.jpg)

As you can see it walks on its knuckles. It had or ginally 2 middle fingers and then a thumb on either side. The thumb and finger fused and the closest segment to the knuckle. then the thumb shrunk and the last 2 joints support the weight of the backwards foot. When swimming it can extent out and between the 2 fused finger/thumbs is webbed skin. Normally that webbed part is either walked on or folded up in the knuckle-walking pose.

As for the skull you can snow see the true mouth which is the beak. Out of that are the 2 pseudo-mandibles. The bottom is like a shallow cup in which the tentacles (soft tissue like an elephants trunk) can sit in. The upper pseudo-mandible hold a "melon"  like a dolphin has  in which it can send out echolocation while in the water. Also like a whale it can produce strange sounds both in its nasal cavity but in the pseudo-mandibles when closed or to amplify its call when open like a mega phone. It has no teeth but digests using a gizzard like birds do.

Since its back limbs are gone now all it has it a hip and the pubic bone. Thus it walks on its front legs and not its back like an ostrich. However with its counterbalance shape like a raptor it can run fast but is still limited by its front heavy head like t-rex had to deal with. When swimming it used both its powerful dolphin-like tail as well as using both flipper-feet in a frog-like swimming pattern. It also close its pseudo-mandibles for best hydrodynamic motion.

Despite its ability to walk on land it still stays by a water source. Its skin drys out easily and is very much like dolphin skin. It must also carry some water in the lower pseudo-mandible to keep it's oral tentacles wet and useable.

The Naucean lays eggs. Even in its whale stage it still came to land like sea turtles and would sit on nests. Unlike sea turtles the males of the colony take turns sitting on the eggs because not all are pregnant at once. They must take turns or the parent will dry out. Nauceans also live in pods of 10 to 20 individuals. Adolescents are raised by the older embers of the pods. Those who are too old to help hunt, fish or gather food.

When a Naucean hits puberty they join the other hunters and gatherers. The females are larger and more aggressive. They hunt small game and fish in the ocean. They also are a blander blue-gray color. The males are smaller but do tent to be more colorful. They tend to gather plants, nuts, berries, roots and other non meat items. Males are very intelligent and are constantly curious about how things work. This is one of the key features of the species. The combination of the strength and cunning of the females with the curiosity and creative nature of the males.

Mating involves an impressive mating dance by the male. They paint their bodies and open their pseudo-mandible wide showing off their oral tentacles. The tentacles can change colors like a squid. Waving these around while dancing around and making deep whale-like calls is quite impressive. Once impressed the female sits and the male mounts. The gestation takes 6 months and then the egg is laied and is incubated for another 6 months. When the babies are born they are more capable than a human baby they can swim immediately but it take them about a year to learn how to walk. Babies are fed by regurgitating food from the mother's gizzard after her hunting or the fathers after pre-chewing gathered food.

You can get their FREE lite version called G-max. Many people use them to make 3D models for diffrent video game hacks.

You can make what i did with g-max no problem. Its just i use 3DS Max because i need it for school. And I got it at the student price rather than the professional price since i am going to school. So even though it is up there in price its still alot better than if you just went and got it.

Also if you thinking about getting some bootleg copy, don't. Its not worth it. I have tried and failed. G-max is way better than any 3DS Max bootleg you can get. Heck i would have stayed with gmax if it were not required for my classes.

So if you are interested in trying out on your own then try the free link below. I highly recomend gmax for those who want to test the waters of CGI.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_warrior.jpg)

Here is a Naucean Bronze Age warrior from the River Tribe. All warriors are females since they are larger and stronger than the males. Their blue wave pattern represent the waves of the river and the green stripe represent the land on either side.

The armor is padded armor from the wool of their domesticated animals (yet to be created). And the leather from hunted creatures (also yet to be created). The plumes on the helm are actually leave from the tree that grow on the banks of the river in which they live.

The Quill Blade is a unique blade in which it can be thrust like a spear or slashed like a sword.It can also be turned over and used like a club since the end is very hard. It also has inbeded at the end a blue Sapphire which is their tribe's sacred gemstone.

It looks vaguely Mesopotamian in style, probably because Mesopotamian cultures (Sumerian and Babylonian, not too sure about Assyrians. The Persians are a later empire) are influenced by the 'fertile cresent' where the Tiber and Euphrates rivers are.

and what is a Floot? is that a typo of Boot?

I tried to mix it up culturalwize, mostly inca looking padded armor, then more egyptian neck thngy, then a an almost roman helm but rather than feather it has leaves more like oceanic cultures. And the blade is sorrta like a spear/scimitar/katana.

As for the "floots" its is my new word for a flipper/boot. Sicne their feet double as a foot and a flipper. Thus they can swim in these "boots" as well as walk in them.

Yes and no. It is a part of their culture to bring back captive of war either to be sold back or used as slaves. The weapon itself is poorly made and not very advanced, but after all they are in a more primitive age. Also their gear is limited by weight. Bronze is not light and they have to swim too. So their armor cannot be metal. Except for the helm which is a sighn of power to beable to swim dispite heavt metal on top your head for protection.

The Naucean River Tribe live in basket dwellings on the shallows of the rivers. They stand on 4 stilts and a wooden step ladder. On the top is a huge spherical basket supported in the middle by the cental stilts. It has one door an can have windows (none shown here) out of the top is a chimey hole for the cooking fire. The cicular floor is made of wooden planks with fire resistant wood. This structure can also be taken down and floated to a new location. All parts of the structure itself can float. Each house can support 4 to 6 Nauceans.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_nest.jpg)

Here is a Naucean nest with 2 babies. The babies are a lighter blue than the adults and can swim after birth. But since they live on land mostly it takes them many months to learn to walk and do not leave the nest until they can walk properly. However adults do carry them around in their lower pseudo-mandible at time. They have 1 to 4 offspring at a time. The parent take care of them until they are old enough to walk. At that stage the older grandparents of the tribe take care of the young one not old enough to hunt or gather. Play is an important part of a young Naucean's life. Durring this stage the young ones play hunting games wrestle and swim. They also learn how to use their 6 tentacles. Like a baby elephant's trunk the Naucen must learn how to manipulate these strange limbs. Once mastered they can do very complex actions where each arm can do a separate task. This is important during the hunt when you need to focus on tracking prey and not worrying about your limbs.

As you can see the parent is wearing Floots (flipper boots) which protect the flippers from being cut on sharp rocks. The tail and oral tentacles it has bronze rings which have tribal, religious and family symbols. Lastly they have the neck poncho with their tribes colors on it. This is important to show tribe spirit and unity within the tribe. You may also notice that the body has no clothing. This is because unlike humans they need to water down their body frequently and only wear clothing either as decorative like the rings or poncho or protection as in armor during war or the floot to walk around in. Nauceans also do not have external genitalia thus they do not feel ashamed of being naked. However they do feel modest when such organs are open for urination, deification and copulation.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_weapons.jpg)

Quill Blade -  Light blade that works like a scimitar or a Katana. It can also be trust like a saber or a spear. On the bottom is a wooden knob that can be used as a club.

Double Bladed Longbow - It works like a typical British Longbow but at the ends it has 2 blades. In which can be used like a double bladed scimitar. Also near the handle are two spikes in which can be trust forward like a quarterstaff.

Oral Tentacle Punching Daggers - Like a punching tagger or knife this is put on the 4 other tentacles without fingers. It is strapped on like a glove. Went all 4 are in action no one can get near the head of the Naucean. They can also jump out at the attacker like  squid this stabbing or stashing a foe.

Duel Bladed Snout Axe - Attached to the upper pseudo-mandible this has 2 places on an ax on eather side. They are connected by support to make sure the pseudo-mandible is not crushed upon impact. The throw their heads side to side in a cutting action to slide the sides of an opponent. these are also used for cutting down trees for wood.

Tail Fluke War Flail - Since their tails are extremely powerful for swimming the Nausicans have attached a spiked ball on a rope to make a deadly weapon. They can not only flick it side to side like an ankylosaurus but can flick it over their heads like a scorpions tail. Sadly this is also dangerous to the wearer since it is easy to miss. Only the most trained warrior use these.

Flat Bottomed Potter Bomb - These Flat bottomed pots are fillled with explosive chemicals that explode upon impact. They are flat on the bottom so that can toss with their tails. But they can also sling the around by throwing them like a shotput with their oral tentacles.

Note these are not the most efficient designs for weaponry but they are very exotic and diffrent.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_numbers.jpg)

Here are the symbols for Naucean numbers. They have base 8 system (Octal). Which means they only count up to 8 rather than like us going up to 10. The reason for this is they only have a total of 8 digits on their hands (2 thumbs and 2 fingers on each of the 2 hands). The symbols also represent body parts. the "S" like symbol represents their oral tentacles. They have 3 on each side of the head. Thus this is why the pattern only goes up to 3. the 4 symbol is a V with 2 notches on it. This represents their hands. The 2 big pars of the V represent their 2 fingers and the 2 notches on either side represent their thumbs. Then the first pattern repeats and combined with the 4 until you reach 8. The * symbol represents each of the main arms on the side of the pseudo-mandible. In bump in the center represent the pseudo-mandible. Thus it looks like a Naucean from the top with both handed oral tentacles sicking out.

Once you get past the first 8 you get to add a place holder. an underline at the bottom represents the one (and repeats once you get to hundreds place and so on). Meanwhile the entire number has a line over to top so you can tell that that is a complete number. so you would have a number like ...

Thousands place (symbol with no underline), Hundreds place (symbol with an underline), Tens place (symbol with no underline), Ones place (symbol with underline) and all 4 of those symbols with an overtop line. And you read from Left to right.

Also like the Romans they have not quite discovered zero.

Hey, I'm a developing artist and am looking for things to draw because I can't decide for myself on what to draw.

I also want to make a creature but can't think of anything (though if I had an idea I can refine it, but can't make my own.)

So,if anyone wants me to draw their creature concepts I'd be happy to do it, and for free too!
Just ask k?

Post by: Kishmond on December 20, 2005, 09:51:42 pm
Okay, here is my completely well-thought-out creature idea  ;D

   The Snamu start out as hunchbacked, woolly creatures that like bugs and small mammals to eat. It would probably live in small tribes called Nemevacs, which lived in improvised shelters called Sevacs. After developing into basic civilizations, most Snamu would develop a jumpy, suspicious attitude towards other tribes, often getting into trouble with each other. The discovery of industrialization would lead the Snamu to pursue a never-quenching thirst for power, where at least one Yrtnuoc group was fighting with another through complicated internal disputes. They were a very confusing society, trying their best to find out anything about everything, whatever they couldn't figure out, they made up stories about to tell to small children and, in some cases, monkeys. They would very frequently enslave other species of their homeworld, H'Trae, for either entertainment or food.
   The onset of genetic modification and single-system space travel gave much power to a single Snamu that a whole bunch were hiding out in the wilderness of H'Trae, performing experiments and creating more and more horribly effective ways to kill each other. These methods became so effective that while they killed each other with large-scale results, they also killed their own planet. At least, that's what they (if They were still alive) thought. What really happened wa that an alien race of one-eyed, pigeon-toed flying purple people eaters that frequented H'Trae got so annoyed because those darn Snamu couldn't take a hint if it blew up their planet, so they did.

There, the result of 4 hours of solid-minded thinking. Completely. Really...

On the evoloution pictures you show large muscle on the rear legs, suggesting they are the main form of locomotion. Wouldn't the rear legs then develop into the legs seen for your current model? And the forearms would basically, become nothing.  You might want to think of reversing it to that it pulls itself with it's powerful front legs which leads to their development.. unless there is something I missed..

I was wondering if the tail is rigid or not. A rigid tail would cause better counter-balance but would decease agility. While a flexible tail wouldn't be quite as effective for counter-balance, that I can imagine. At any rate with a tail that size in proportions to the creature you can by no means call it agile.

I acually did the evolution backwards. Meaning i made the Naucean firs and then mae an anestor before that and before that and before that.. until i got back to a single cell guy. rather than building it up to the Naucean.

As for the tail it works with a blood filled system. with the blood is not in the spinal collum then it is "limp" and easy to move. But when the blood is inside it is "stiff" and "ridged". The same type of method is used for .. ahem ... a certain male organ.
Title: Re: Naucean - My New Creature
Post by: Interitus on December 22, 2005, 01:08:49 pm
That's an interesting idea, but wouldn't the blood filling up the tail cause blood loss to other organs? The tail is very large, and that would use almost all the blood in the entire creature to fill.

You could maybe have a  blood storage area, perhaps similar to a spleen where the old hips were.  Even then it would have to be quite large, and lack of any legs there would probably disrupt the centre of balance..

Hmm, I'll need to think about that

I think Borogrove is right about what Hydro meant. Still, thier physiology and biology (thier internal organs and all) is likely to be pretty different from the Earth standard other than the basic organs (brain/nervous system, gastrointestinal tract from start to end). Plus it doesn't even have to be blood thats used because whats happening here and with a certain male organ, is hydraulic pressure. So it can be some other kind of fluid that is contained in many small sacs (solving the balance issue since it spreads it out) which can be expanded or contracted.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to bash Hydro and his creation. I'm trying to help him flesh out his creature in the best possible way. I think it's great he put this much work into it, I'm just trying to ask questions or make suggestions. By no means am I condemning someone for being creative.

Well i am glad you are helping. And imlike the sacs full of some fluid idea. I am sure my creature is doable. Its just a matter of figuring out HOW it works within the universe as we know it. For insance on Animal Planet they had a show that biologiclally expained how dragons could be. For instance dragons were to heavey to fly so they have them hydrogen sacs so they could be netrally boyant in the air. Enough so to be light enough to fly. Such things for an unknown creature like my Nauscean i think is doable.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_tribes.jpg)

Here are just 4 of the many tribes that live on Nauceanica. The river tribe is the one i have shown before with their basket homes on stilts in the rivers. The ocean tribe live underwater in coral homes but must come to the surface to breathe or breathe in small bubbles trapped under the dome shaped coral homes. The mountain tribe live high on the tops of the mountains where it snows. Their bodies blend into to the snow well and they live in igloos which are also round. They love the ice and snow and tend to live near melting ice and fish in freezing cold rivers. Luckily their thick blubber protects them in the same way the ocean tribe's blubber. The cave tribe live in the deep water table caverns. They rarely come to the surface and live on the cave fish and mushrooms.

Each tribe have diffrent features. The ocean tribe are the largest and are too big to walk on land. The Mountain Tribe are the smallest and have compact features for working on the icy slopes. Even their 4 eye have become slanted to reduce the glare. However the cave tribe's eye have grown huge to see in the darkness of the caverns. There are some glowing lichen that live within the caves so its is not always dark. They also have some of the beast hearing of all the tribes and the brightest tentacles that not only can change colors but glow.

All tribe originally came from the ocean tribe then all land tribe came from the river tribe. Besides these tribes there are the desert tribe, jungle tribe, forest tribe, swamp tribe and grassland tribe. All tribes are just separate races like human races. Each although separated still can reproduce with each other. It has been known to happen now and then but is not common during the bronze age. It is only until the later more modern eras that mixed races become more common.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_homes.jpg)

Here are 3 examples of the homes of he Naucean tribes. I have shown the basket home before which is the river tribes style of home. I have also changed the mountain tribe's home from an igloo to a yurt style home. Except it is also a sphere like all the others. The bottom half is made of stone while the top half is made of animal skins and wood like an earth yurt. Except this is more spherical. The Ocean tribes bobble home is kelp afloat under the water with the swim bladders of sea creatures that live on their planet. It is also tethered to the floor with very strong kelp fibers. The skin of the bubble is made of the skin of the same sea creature that the swim bladder is from and sewn together with bone toothed needs and kelp fibers.Or thew top it allows fresh air in. However they rarely use fire because it uses up the air and makes it unbreatheable it inside. Thus they must come to the surface to use fire on floating rafts.

As you can see no matter what style all have a thme of a sphere as their house. This is because of the tradtion of the first bubble kelp homes. Sicne the ocean tribe is the first tribe.

It has the Naucean linage as well a split off to a very tall tree browsing biped. I have yet to name all the creatures. I will fill in more now and then so i can have a balanced ecosystem with common ansestors. This works because i can split off at any stage. It goes from the first single cell creature on the Nauceanica on up.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_tribes2.jpg)

Here are 4 more Naucean tribes, grasslands, jungle, swamp and desert. The Grassland Tribe lives on a tall Savannah and have long legs and long necks to look over the grasses. They have very elongated features due to this environment. Also because of being exposed to the sun so much they have darker skin. They must live around the rivers and lakes of the grassland to survive otherwise the heat would dry out their skin.

The Jungle Tribe live in the dense jungles. They are small like Earth's human Pygmies. They are about half the size of a river tribe. They also make their homes in spherical homes high in the canopy of the trees away from any land predators. They also catch rain water in pools high above to stay moist.

The Swamp Tribe are closely related to the river tribe except for their shovel-like snout. Thy use this to dig and shape mud dwellings. These to are spherical upon 4 stilts like the basket homes. Except rather than reeds they use clay and mud. They also have been known to make dams.

The Desert Tribe are the most extreme of all the tribes. Not only are they an indigo color to fight the harmful UV rays of the desert but they have a shortend snout and scaly skin for water conservation, a tall nostril crest with a thin membrane for easy heatloss. And a smaller body for burrowing in the sand. They make dune homes and tend to come out at night more than the day. This is why they have larger eyes. Although not officially nocturnal they do tend to spend a lot of time at night rather than the midday hot sun.  They also live next to rivers, oasises and underground springs. In which they will dig down to to get to the water. These have main similar traits to the other tribes. Fir instance they dig like the Cave Tribe but save water like the grassland tribe but at a more extreme. They also have leathery tentacles that are bland and made for desert use. Their body can use water more efficiently than any other Naucean.

I have some questions..

Is there any reason the River tribe builds their home on stilts, are the rivers prone to flooding or just some artistic license?  ;)

For the ocean tribe the breathing tube doesn't look like it fits very far out of the water. If this is the case couldn't water enter during a storm, or worse even be snapped off.  On the other hand this might be a giant structure, and the breathing tube might be quite far out of the water. Maybe adding measurements  or a little Naucean beside the picture to show scale.


Finally I'm not up on my scientific classifications.  I was thinking the differences might be too great for them to possibly be of the same species after a brief search I found that it all depends if the different races can breed with each other. If they can they are all subspecies, if not they are all a different species.

The basket house is up on stilts because if it were on the ground it would wash away. The river area they live in is full of rushing rivers. Also its shape is to look diffrent from say humans also its to resemble the ocean tribe since they were the first tribe to evolve and all split from it.

As for the ocean tribes breathing tube i would agree. I was not sure if i should have it where they collect sacs of air from the outside or just have a tube. There is no real good explanation other than if it were to tall it would snap off anywho from the waves. It also is adjustable.

For the diffrent tribes they are no more diverse than Earth's diffrent dog breeds. Who could imagine a chihuahua, pug, st Bernard, poodle, husky, bulldog and collie are all the same species of domesticated wolf. Yes dogs can still reproduce with wolves just as well. My primitive ocean Nauceans are just like a wolf. And the rest are like varied breeds. Coyotes, foxes, African wild dogs, jackals, dholes and other canines all seem like they could be subspecies of wolf but they are not. The fact is in dog breeds despite their diffrent appearances they are still the same species. And despite the similarities between say a coyote and a wolf they are not the same species.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_warriors.jpg)

Here are just 3 warriors from 3 different tribes, River Tribe, Jungle Tribe and Grassland Tribe. I have already explained the River tribe warrior so i will not go over it again.

Jungle tribe are very small and live in the jungle canopy. These are blowgunner warriors who peak out of the leaves and ambush enemy's. They also double as hunters. They live in the stone age still. They wear green headdresses which also blend into the leaves as well as tradition. They may be small but they can swing fast though the trees by their tentacles to either ambush with poison darts from their blow guns or will jump on the back of the larger Naucean tribes warriors back.

The Grassland tribe are one of the most land based tribes. They do not swim in battle if they can help it. This is because they are heavily armored with bronze plating with spiked horns. They also have punching daggers like the ones described before.Their tactinc is to get close enough to puncture and are armored enough to protect themselves. Their punching daggers are no match for the River tribes padded armor or the Jungle tribes lack of armor. Sadly this make them slow when walking. Which is a shame since without armor their speed is much faster with their long legs. They also tower over all but the ocean Nauceans. And even then the ocean Nauceans do not come on land. Thus are not really a threat. Like the River tribe they also wear "leather floots" except they have the clawed spikes on the front for kicking action. One kick to a Jungle tribe warrior with this weapon and they are dead.

The other major players on land would be the swamp tribe, desert tribe and mountain tribe (since the ocean tribe will not travel on land and the cave tribe are almost never seen above ground.

I know I'm late here, but I wouldn't bother with Gmax, unless you are building models for mods or level design. I would move straight to http://www.alias.com/glb/eng/products-services/product_details.jsp?productId=1900003 for the Maya Personal Learning Edition.

This program blows every other free program out of the water, because it is the absolute full version...for free. The only drawback is when you render an image, there is a watermark on it.

I'm sure nobody has mentioned any illegal methods here, so I won't as well. But I will say, in all honesty, the majority of CGI work out there by hobbyists is from illegal copies of the software. As long as you aren't making money, companies like Alias and Discreet know there are tons of people using and learning on their product. When you start making money, then you own it to them to purchase the full licensed copy.

For your CG creature, I have a few ideas:

*First thing you want to do is use bump mapping on the creatures skin. An easy way to do this is use the same texture you used for the diffuse, and drop it into the bump slot (in max). The key here is to not use too much bump, and to make sure your repetition of the bump map is set to the same as the diffuse map.

*As for the ground he is standing on, you are using a large stone texture, which wouldn't really benefit from bump mapping unless is was extreme, so don't even go there. I would use...bah, nevermind. Just don't use huge 2D stones in the same scene your sporting 3D unless you bump it, or use actual geometry to showcase earth/stone.

*Use a three point lighting rig to showcase the objects. Make sure only one of them is using diffuse shadows. Go to this link -- http://www.3drender.com/light/3point.html for a nice and easy tutorial for a three-point lighting rig.

Good luck.

That's a weak arguement to say drop it after you get the last word. Your the one being assuming that Christians are the only one who calls their deity "lord" in fact Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and even Hindu's all call their belief "God" (Hindu's recognize the exsistence of many gods, but usually worship only one).  Your the one who took offense to something . My point it isn't in who YOU believe in, it's in how THEY believe in. If they say god damnit, who are you to assume they are speaking of the Christian god.  You can't, and for that reason, unless you know that persons faith you can't say it is disrespectful to you. .

In the Galaxtic Age the Nauceans are the best geneticists in galaxy. Thus creating all the other creatures i have been drawing in their test labs.

The Nauceans once at the UFO stage are a peaceful race. They have had too many wars and now embraced science and seek knolledge. In short the Nauceans ultimately would rather be in the lab splicing genes rather than taking over the galaxy. However they are not pushovers either. Become their enemy and they will turn you into a newt Or at least give you the deadly newtpox!

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_swimming.jpg)

Here is a drawing showing how they swim with their "floots". As you can compare with the skeleton drawing (first page). When they walk on land they are actually walking on their knuckles. When extended all the way out i makes a flipper. The floots work in that they have padding from the knuckle down the front. While walking its usually up like a fist. This curing the toes backward (up and back). You can see how this works by using you own hand. When in a fist its like hand cured up and then when you extent your and that is like them in flipper mode. Now imagine the floot as like a glove. Except the sole of the show is from you knuckles to the tip of your fingers on the out side of your hand.

If the floot was not on it would worth the same with both bones on either side of the foot (you pointer and pinky without any of the other fingers) and a webbing of skin in bettween thats normal curled up. The bottom side also has a hard class just like the bottom of your foot. They cannot bend it forward past that point without breaking their feet fromthe weight.

Actually the Grassland tribe wears them too and I'm sure others will such as the mountain and desert tribes. The floots are for protecting the flippers, same thing as shoes protect our feet.

Besides, that one has a bunch of lab gear such as the mask over the nose, the safety goggles over the eyes (wouldn't they use gogglles for all 4 of thier eyes?), gloves, and thier equivalent of a lab coat. Also, is the bandanna which is the same color as the gloves, a sort of clan symbol or something or does it have a more pratical use like covering the mouth? because in the bronze age the bandanna is used to signify what tribe they are in.

Post by: Hydromancerx on January 08, 2006, 02:46:04 pm
To raikitsune:

The jungle tribe don't becuse for one they are more tribal and have not advanced to develop "floot" techology. Also they use their tenticles more to climb in the jungle trees.

To Areku, huggkruka and Zuka:

I say they are called "floots" becuase i made them. You can call their feet "fleet" if you want but they are the front limbs so they would really be more like "flands" (flipper-hands).

To smjjames:

The Naucean scientist did not need goggles on his smaller eyes becuse he closes them. Also he uses those smaller eye to see the stuff without having to take off the goggles. Sicne the goggles are for a higher maginafication.

Well it will be a mixture. The River tribe is the dominant political tribe, but other races will be included. Sorrta like how America came from the British empire then split and now we have many diffrent races within the US not just the "white British" race it was orginal created by.

That geneticist is mighty cool, if you draw a few Cryoeltans I'll give exclusive rights for the Nauceans to be the Cryoeltan's first contact :). If you do a really good job I'll even say the Nauceans were the ones that uplifted the Cryoeltans and sped their evolution

The bandanna is the tribal colors. but one in the UFO age it is the rank designation. That green color means he is a scientist or doctor. It also can cover the mouth yes.

Although I'd imagine them having something more elaborate as far as military rankings. I know they no longer want to fight wars by the time they reach UFO era, but they could still keep a military force for various reasons and there would certainly be some kind of police force.

I think 'no longer wanting to fight' would be unrealistic whichever way you look at it, especially with the other 'primitive' tribes around.  I'm sure they'd be more than willing to fight anyone and each other.

You could just sidestep it and say they were all 'brought up to speed', but I'm sure each 'race' would still hate each other in some way.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_geography.jpg)

Here is a map of the Naucean known world (may add more in the Eastern Hemesphere).

Ea Ocean
The Global Ocean which is unpopulated by the Nauceans because of such deep water.

Apsu Sea
The Naucean "Cradle of Civilization". They are the original tribe of the nauceans and all tribe trace their roots to them. Its a shallow sea full of undersea vents. This is perfect for underwater metallurgy. It also has alot of coral reefs due to its shallowness. These too are keep for toolmaking.

Adad Bay
Currently an uninhabited bay that has yet to be populated by the Nauceans. Though the water is a bit deeper than the Apsu Sea. However this bay is rich in natural gas.

Shutu Coast
This coast is full of hurricanes and is very windy due to the mixture of the West and East Winds colliding. So much so that the Jungle tribe has moved more inland to the jungle rather than being a coastal tribe.

Beletseri Desert
The dryest part of the planet. This region gets very little rain despite it touching the Apsu Sea. This is however the home of the desert tribe. They live only along the river that comes down from the North.

Ninsun Plains
This is the home of the Grassland tribe. They are always at war with the River tribe, Desert Tribe and Mountain Tribe over this precious farmland. It is not to hot like the jungles or desert but are not to cold like the Mountains.

Ennugi Forest
This is the home of the popular River tribe. It is full of temprate palms and tall bamboo-like grasses. However it is to luch for large scale farming like the grasslands. Despite other tribes living by rivers this tribe is the only tribe to actually have home in the river. Which is why they are not called the Forest tribe, though they could be.

Tammzu Jungle
This very lush and wet jungle are so extensive that the jungle tribe has only populated only a faction of it. The deeper you go the smaller the Jungle tribe gets in height.

Dumuzi Swamp
This is home to the swamp tribe. Due to no solid land or completely clear water they constantly build mud homes. Despite their love of the earth they are still very much aquatic like the river and ocean tribes.

Amurru Mountains
This is home to both the Mountain and the Cave tribes. The Mountain tribe lives above on the icy land while the Cave tribe live deep within the caves full of water and glowing lichen. The cave tribe originally came from the Mountain tribe but went underground after the Grassland Tribes worst battle. Those who stayed are the current Mountain tribe.

Tribal Lineage

I.   Ocean Tribe

IA.   Desert Tribe
IB.   Swamp Tribe
IC.   Jungle Tribe
ID.   River Tribe

ID1.   Grassland Tribe
ID2.   Mountain Tribe

ID2a.   Cave tribe

Umm, back on topic. When are you planning on developing any of the Naucean vehicles? Because I know you said you liked the idea of that coral based sub in the other thread. Oh and P.S. to all those that love the Naucean, Hydro agreed to help me out with my creature, and continues to do so(more drawings?  :D  hehe) but in exchange I started a nice little project that I will give him to use when it is done. I hope you will all enjoy it (should be done by the weekend)!

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_homes2.jpg)

Here are 3 Naucean dwellings, swamp, jungle and desert tribe.

The swamp tribe is made from mud and reed bricks and stones. Then dried in the sun and put together. Also branch frame keeps the shape due to such a wet environment. Due to the mud structure they have to be constantly repaired. Luckily the bricks are dipped in tree sap and it drys into a resin. This meas it will be more waterproof this the mud can stay together longer and not just wash way when it rains.

The jungle tribe live mostly in the trees of the jungle they make their homes from branches, leaves and vines. They build them high in the canopy of the trees above most deadly predators. They also collect water in the leaves as it rained for drinking and keeping their skin wet.Thus they do not need to go to the ground hardly at all.

The desert tribe also make mud bricks but they stay together much easier due to the arid environment of the desert. They must also stay by the rivers for the water and typically stay indoors or in the water during the day and then come out at night to work. Thy put it on the cliffs both for dense but for quick access to the water all the time. But due to flooding they do not build on the banks. The cliffs are high enough not to get washed away.

instead u could do a bridge that connects the hut with the ground, or you could do a spiralstairway :)

From what Ive seen from the drawings wouldn it grip the ladder with the mouth tenticles and pull itself up that way ?

I would prefer a ladder/stair designed for a naucean but sure, hydro maybe have though about it and decided for strong tentacles

Simply amazing..... beautiful.... detailed designs and inovative ideas... Double mouth, tentacle only manipulators, it's like a squid/ dinosaur/ bird.

the way their foot is designed i think the tentacles gri[ rungs and like us put first one foot then another on rungs
their feet colud be more developed than they look allowing more control.
if the tentacles are strong enough the could lift part of the weight with feet taking resting weight.

Nauceans can climb fine the use their 6 arms to pull up and their 3 "floots" to step up. Infact they fall less than humans due to how many tentacles.

Here are diffrent animals and plants that the Nauceans eat. The large animal is like our pigs and the bird-like creature is like our chickens. the rest are wild creatures from the river whle those two are domesticated. The plants are various fruit, roots, veggies, grains, eggs, berrys and nuts. I have no names yet but i tried to keep them all look exotic while still from the same planet in the river region.

just a little idea, kind of my thoughts on what land dwelling aquatics might do

the swamp dwelling Nauceans build dams right, wouldn't they also build beaver like lodges
just the image of that house made me think of other things a artificial Naucean lake might mean.
it would provide space for aquatic plants and animals Nauceans could tend like Rice paddies providing an avenue to agricultural revolution.

Quote from: wikipedia
Rice paddies — shallow puddles carefully controlled to ensure the appropriate water depth (typically 15 cm). Rice paddies sometimes serve a dual agricultural purpose by also producing edible fish or frogs, a useful source of protein. The farmers take advantage of the rice plant's tolerance to water: the water in the paddies prevents weeds from outgrowing the crop.... Paddies increase productivity...

just an idea for how to get Hunter gaterers into the "civilizations" stage.
------------------------------------------------------
The tenticles are each like an elephant trunk

wouldn't that mean the tentacle s would be very powerful weapons with the ability to pummel opponents...

Good idea for the dams and lodges. I think i will have to add that.

Oh and they don't have "rice" but i am sure i can evolve soem sorrta of aquatic plain that can be cooked (like rice) or ground into bread (like wheat).

Yes the they are stong and can pummel look at my picture of the punching daggers. Thoe are very effective. which is why the Grassland Tribe use it as their weapon of choice.

This picture is in response to peoples questions.

The left picture is to the question if Nauceans can climb ladders. As you can see the desert tribe can climb just fine and keep many tentacles on each rung as well as the main weight on the 2 "fleet". Also the desert Nauceans are smaller. Not as small as the jungle but around the size as the mountain and cave Nacueans and still smaller than the River, Swamp, Ocean and Grassland.

The right picture is showing how well the small Jungle Nauceans can swing through the treetops of the jungle. They use the 2 main tentacles to hold most of the weight then use 2 smaller to support the more developed ones and then the other 2 move to the next spot so the more developed knows where to go next. It's very cool to see as well as how fast they go.

The bottom is a Ocean Tribe Fire Pit. So many asked how they use fire. They float this on the surface while still attaching it to the bottom.These floating fire pits are used for cooking, ceremony and some metallurgy (though not very much since they have to swim with it).

Enjoy and i hope this gives you a better visual than anything that i could describe.

Cool, a fire on the water... It's not a very stormy ocean is it? Or do they posses lighting tools(like flintstone)? I imagine they'll have to have that if the fire pit turned over... anyway, it's an interesting question. What will the aquatic animals have instead of a fireplace?

They get storms which means they have to rebuild. OR they put out the fire and pull it down below the water. Since you can close up the doors and make it water tight like their homes.

They first discovered fire on the snores of their homes. Then later learned of flint by the desert tribe whom were the first to leave to the flooded shallow sea which was once where the desert was. It was only later after the water went back did they become less aquatic. Those who stayed became the desert tribe and the rest went East to the next deepest shallow sea and stayed as the ocean tribe. In this time they would still trade the desert tribe would trade flint for ocean food (like fish and stuff).

The river, swamp and jungle split next all around the same time. Neither wished to have such dry lifestyle as the desert but not as aquatic as the ocean. This love of the shallows lead them to where they live today. However as the storms got worse on the coast for the jungle tribe they had to go deeper into the forest. Thus they eventually looked for other methods like arboreal life in the canopy.

Later on after the river tribe was more established different tribes got more separated until the grassland, mountain and river were distint races. Then after the great war of the stone age the mountain tribe spit into the cave and mountain. Those what stay were the mountain and those who hid underground from the grassland tribe became the cave tribe.

Lots of time pasted and the races became more and more different from each other. But not so much so that they still cannot breed. However some combinations do not breed as well. For instance half cave half desert are very rare and hard to get healthy offspring.

Anywho to answer "What will the aquatic animals have instead of a fireplace?" I have no idea what fully aquatic races will do in spore. Thats one reason i made my amphibious.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/lystrophant.jpg)

I have been thinking of this for a long time. What creature would a Naucean need sicne they are built like a raptor or ostrich. I did not want them to ride a creature that looked to much like them. Then i thought what would i need a mount for if they could run preaty fast. Ah they need something for construction. Thus i got the idea of an elephant-like creature i call the lystrophant. "Lystro" means "shovel" in Latin, thus this could shovel dirt and move it as well as carry large loads of lumber in the duel trunks.

These creatures are larger than Earth's elephants. They live on the grasslands of the planet and were first domesticated by the Grassland Tribe. But have spread to other regions like the River tribe. As you can see they eat alot so only a small herd is needed per village. They are mainly used for constriction but have been known to use for war.

Lystrophants are actually quite smart and can learn many commands. A Lystrophant rider i bonded to a calf when just a child and raised together for the rest of their lives. A Naucean family is lucky to have a child bonded to their families lystrophant.

As you can see they have 6 tentacles just like a Nauceans except two of them have formed tusks. These tusk can be used to hold lumber on or uproot trees and dirt or even used in warfare. Lystrophants like water too to cool off but are not used by the ocean tribe because they must have land. The swamp tribe have yet to get Lystrophants because no ship can hold them yet. And cave Nauceans do not have them because it is too small for them to fit.

Mountain Nauceans have tried to raise them but do to the lack of food for them they cannot support them. Desert and jungle tribe however do use them alot. Especially in making their homes atop jungle trees and desert cliffs.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_solarsystem.jpg)
(Image not to Scale)

Solar System

Here is the Nautiloid Solar System. Its sun Au, is a red dwarf star 1/3 the size of Earth's sun. Not shown (but shown in the Planet Spore Galaxy chart) is a blue giant which is 8,000 Light Years away. To put ti in perspective Since it is so huge it will appear to be 3 times the size of out sun in the Nauceanica sky while the home star Au will appear as only about 1/4 due to its size and distance. Thus most of the solar radiation actually comes from the Blue Giant rather than the Red Dwarf.

This solar system contains 8 planets, 4 terrestial, 3 gas giants and one out rim planet/moon. There are also 21 moon on 5 of the planets. These planets include;

Vari the closest to Au and the fastest orbit. It is the smallest planet.

Oro is the 2nd planet from Au and is a scorched planet with no atmosphere either. Its is slightly smaller than Nauceanica and has one scorched moon, Fati. However it is very volcanic due to the pull of its moon shifting the molten plates around.

Whrio is the 3rd planet from Au and is a greenhouse planet much like Venus. It has no moons.

Nauceanica is a tropical ocean planet where the Nauceans live. It has two moons, Serina and Sina. The moons make for great tides and the planet its self is moderately volcanic. The moons however are not volcanic.

Quat is the largest planet in the solar system. This takes most of the hits from asteroids and commets that would hit the inner solar system. It has 8 moons but only the largest Hana, Hina and Mahina have been seen by the Nauceans thus they are the only ones named.

Laka is alot like Saturn in that it has huge rings. It also has 6 moons but only 2 have been seen/named, Roua and Tanonoul.

Longo is the smallest of the gas giants. It has one small ring and 4 moons but only 3, Uri, Areop and Keha have been seen/named.

Lastly the planet/moon Po is a small cold iceball which actually melts when it gets closer to the Blue Giant near by. Durring this time it blooms with single cell life. Then in the colder times it is solid ice and the cells go dormant. Sadly nothing beyond single cells can survive here.

Seasons on Nauceanica

Due to its weak home sun and huge neighboring sun this creates quite an interesting situation. The season work like this...

1st Quarter of the Year - Hottest Day with 2 suns in the sky, Darkest Nights.
2nd Quarter of the Year - Hot Day Blue Giant, Long Twilight Night, Warm Red Dwarf Day, Short Twilight Night
3rd Quarter of the Year - Hot Day Blue Giant, Medium Twilight Night, Warm Red Dwarf Day, Medium Twilight Night
4th Quarter of the Year -  Hot Day Blue Giant, Short Twilight Night, Warm Red Dwarf Day, Long Twilight Night
(Or something like that)

Post by: smjjames on January 15, 2006, 07:54:21 am
really cool solar system, however 8,000 light years is extremely far away and wouldn't affect the planet at all.

if you mean something like 8,000 AU or 80,000 AU, then that would work better. I'm not sure about the scale in AUs and the gravitational pull of the blue giant, but its certainly close enough to affect the planets seasons.

(I know I posted this on Planetspore, but I just wanted to make the point to two different audiences)

Ok i croped out my portion of the galaxy and the surrounding squares.

Each square is 2,000 x 2,000 light years. Which makes its aprox 6,000 light years (I miss counted ince there are 3 squares over [3x2,000 = 6,000]) to that Blue Giant Super Nova thingy. From the looks of it the star is self is like atleast a lightyear across.

What do you think should be its size to be enough to warm my planet.
Title: Re: Naucean - My New Creature
Post by: smjjames on January 15, 2006, 03:29:10 pm
as far as I know, its physically impossible for a star to be a light year across.

I don't know anything about the physics of stars warming the local area, but I do know it wouldn't work over 8,000 light years, if it did then the several giant stars within 1,000 light years of the sun (Betelgeuse, Sirus, Procyon to name a few big stars) would affect us and they don't, although yea theres the myth about Sirus the dog star, but thats all it is, a myth.

you can have it be a binary system with the Nauceans home star orbiting far enough away to not affect planet formation too much, but close enough to affect climate.

This is Naucean the Creator Goddess. She is like Gaia or Mother Earth on the planet. She is all things and balances nature and the ecosystem. As you can see she is holding Au (the small dwarf star) and the Blue Super Giant in the other hand, which both warm the planet. In the other 2 tentacles she is holding the orbiting moons Sina and Sirenia. And the last 2 tentacles are out like a balance showing the balance as well as open for a hugging embrace.

However they can only toss the turnabegga ball with their tails. It is a very full contact sport and they have huge competions between tribes. This picture however is showing kids of the river tribe playing. You can tell the teams by the color on the bronze tail rings. In this game it is red vs green.

Nauceans may be able to swim but they can only carry so much. Thus ships are still needed. They use these reed cargo ships to transport items they normally could not transport from swimming. Trade routes of the River tribe spread to the swamp tribe, ocean tribe and desert tribe (at the delta). They would travel south to the jungle tribe but they do not have a seaport on the coast.

The ship is self is made of woven reed sails similar to the weave used by Earths Hawaiians. The hull itself is also reeds muchlike Earth's Egyptian reedboats. The back is a typical Naucean Basket house converted into a sleeping quarter. Under the wooden deck is a small amount of room for cargo so most must be strapped down on the deck or kept in the sleeping quarters. he masts and bow are made of strong kelp like stalks that the ocean tribe uses on their homes. Its is prefect for masts in that is strong flexible and water proof.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_android.jpg)

Here is a Naucean Android from the UFO age. These Androids can do most of the functions a Naucean can do. They can walk, use tentacles and even swim by unfolding their flippers on the back of the foot and using their dolphin-like tails just as a real Naucean would. The difference is they are much stronger, faster and smarter than a Naucean and are used for manual labor, cleaning, helping the young, old and sick, as well as being used in war. However the war-bots are a bit more equipped with war gear than these. Like all robots they must follow Asimov's 3 Laws of Robotics;

   1. A robot may not harm a Naucean being, or, through inaction, allow a Naucean being to come to harm.
   2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by Naucean beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
   3. A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

As you can see these are the perfect obedient servants for the Nauceans ... or so they think. ;)

You are dreaming too much about this things.  It is a good fiction, but maybe most of it isn't possible in Spore. :-\ This is why I didn't draw any creatures. Maybe you won't be able to create a Naucean in Spore, and you will cry.  :'(

why do you need to have a pessimistic attitude about it? :P

I draw creatures because I like to draw. Spore is one of the last things I think of, even if I draw inspiration from it. World building is not a new concept and I could hardly see someone cry just because they cannot create their specific creatures in Spore. I mean, the creatures would still be there, wouldn't they?

And why do people confuse pessimissm with realism? What if you can't make it? People who put this much effort into making a creature better be prepard to accept they can't make what they designed. We don't know what you can or can't make yet. That's one of the reasons I haven't created a creature yet, is I don't know what I'll be able to do, also I can't draw at all  :P

regardless of is you can or can't make the creature. Part of the fun is in the creation here and now, with hopes of making it in spore. I think they understand that they might not be able to make it, but it isn't stopping them from creating. Spore has already been the springboard for their imaginations. They are doing something that most people only think of doing but never getting around to it. It is a project and worth it in itself whether or not we run into a Naucean in the game or not.

And even though the naucean is creative, it's not exactly breaking the notion of what is biologically possible. I mean, if you can't put arms in your creatures' mouth, then you can put them near the mouth and make a pseudo-naucean.

I don't think anyone is trying to stop people from creating creatures, I think people should be aware that in the end there are still limitations. I would encourage people to create, just be cautious that you might not be able to create exactly what you see.

I realize this but i am taking Will Wright's take on things. Think big and extreme. Do no not limit yourself and think of things no one has thought of yet.

These ideas despite what actually get in actually make others think, and create. Sure i know not all will get in. But one can hope and imagine and then go make some their selves while we wait. Let's say we did this after spore was out and knew all its limitations. Would thats stop you from trying to push them? Find new ways?

In short think out side the box because you can, not because someone says so. I am making this because 1 its fun 2 people enjoy it and 3 hey maybe i could use it for Spore. As you can see the 3rd reason is not the important reason. And i would probably do this even if there was not a game like Spore to do this. But Spore inspired me so i did not think of this before, or have people relating and understanding what i am making.

In short i will not be sad. Because like i said before. I may get sick of the Naucean by the timeSpore comes out and want to create a completely new creature instead.

None of Hydros awesome pictures seems to be working.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_copperage.jpg)

Here is the start of the civilization evolution. I plan to go from Prehistoric all the way to Nano Age. As you can see Prehistoric still has the Ocean tribe since all tribes started from the ocean tribe. Then in Stone Age the tribes split off thus the first River Tribe. This shows a Shaman with a staff but the warriors pretty much just had wooden clubs and threw rocks at each other. By the  Copper age things like weaving and copper tools and weapons started. This shows a spear. They also have slings and harpoons. This is when the first domestication of animals and plants happend. By the Bronze age they have bronze tools and weapons as well as all the other stuff i have been posting from this age.

More to come soon!  :D

I really liked Empire Earth.  It had a nice variety of units and looked really smooth when I played it.  My favorite semi-relevant Empire Earth moment is when I got schooled by the player called Methos.  He really is the best at that game.

After a while, though, I started playing Jedi Academy.  I sort of got into the multiplayer play, and lo and behold, I see Methos!  It was an exquisite moment when I absolutely raped him in a lightsaber duel.  ;D

Post by: smjjames on January 18, 2006, 05:28:38 pm
yea, I doubt there will be 15 eras, it would be too intensive since Empire Earth was about civilization, Spore is more than that.

At the least I'd expect there to be a tribal era, classical or medieval, and finally modern. I know WW is probably trying to keep the stages as simple as he can, but I can easily see bronze age and iron age (which the classical period was partly in) incorporated into the tribal age at first then same in the city stage, then I guess the medieval era or whatever equivalent, then industrial, then modern/technological.

Here is a Dark Age warrior from the River Tribe. The dark ages happend after the fall of the Grassland Empire that once spread all the way South to the Desert, North to the mountains, West to the grasslands and even East to the river. As youcan see the style of Quill blade is similar but is much better and made of iron rather than bronze. It also has protective handle. Floots have also been upgraded with iron plating. There is still padded armor but it is worm under iron plates. The helm too has been upgraded to cover the pseudo-mandible. Also if you notice gloves have caught on to protect their tentacles. The most important feature of this age is the discovery of the iron shell shield. More and more the River Tribe is becoming less aquatic. They still live above the river in their stilt homes over the river but battles are more land based.

wouldn't river based civilizations use ranged weapons? Sure you would still need infantrymen, but as the village or city has a natural defense in the river, i would think ranged weaponry would be better able to defend the city, until the attacking army breaks through the defenses.

But then again, this would be totally different if the river tribe was the attacking army. Just thoughts, nothing more. And you draw really well, whenever you update this, i am always coming back. Keep it up!

Yes, that would be much better defendable. Otherwise they need to swim from their houses to the enemy, and probably die when they try. So they did better use some ranged weapons. But it is a awesome picture, though

Yes there is ranged too but i was sticking with the melee untits for now so i can really show the advances in metals (stone, copper, bronze, iron). I already mentioned in the Bronze age they have double bladed longbows. These still exist but in composite bow and iron blades.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_middleage.jpg)

Here is a typical melee unit of the River Tribe Middle Ages. Due to the ever increasing opposition of more armored Nauceans the river tribe too had to face this. One compromise of weight and protection came with chainmail. Which replaced padded armor still underneed the iron plate armor. Their quill sword have advanced too to become broader and thicker to slice through such armor. Some of the strongest Nauceans fight during this time. Where tentacle muscles bulged.

Not shown here is the armored War Lystrophants and Composite Double Bladed Long Bows. The river tribe are known for their advanced archers who shoot from high atop their river castles. Durring this time advanced siege equipment was developed to take out these castles in the river.

Here is a Renaissance River Tribe hand cannoneer. As you can see the River tribe were the first to discover gun powder and took the advantage over the other tribes. They also kept up with the armor race in which this shows it has full plate. Sadly this will be all for nothing in the future because as gun powderer gets better the slow armored knight will be obsolete. If you also notice the whole body is covered with metal except for the eyes which have 4 holes and on the top where the nostril is has a grate to breathe through. Also even the 3 main tentacles are covered in chainmail.
Title: Re: Naucean - My New Creature
Post by: smjjames on January 25, 2006, 01:19:32 pm
neat! :)

it definetly reflects the evolution of armor in our history, the dark ages one would be after the roman empire fell, but before chain-mail became common, the middle ages would be when armor was more common and chain mail was more common, and the renaissance one would be at the peak of the age of armor, before guns got powerful enough.

from the looks of that, it seems to be an early hand cannon, before the technology was widespread and they were still expensive to produce (and thus would only be owned by soldiers or governments with the cash).

I tried to check out to see if I had the facts right and couldn't really find anything on yahoo, although I found an entry in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_mail

still, the naucean history does not neccesarily have to go the way human history did, so...

I know i jumped the Imperial age (Earth's 1500-1700 AD) but had a great idea for this Industrial Age picture.

This picture is the Industial Age River Tribe. As you can see it is very much like America's Cowboys or other Colonies like Australia or South Africa. Durring the previous age they discovered a new contentent and have already started colonization of it. Which are still within the River Tribe Empire.

In his hand is a revolver which is better than the flint lock of the previous age. In the 6 sacks attacked to the tail is ammo and supplies. He also has a quill dagger which is a current version of the Quill blade once used. His hand helps keep the glare hot sun off his eyes and he wears gloves and floots made of a new world beast's hide.

As more and more industrialization comes the more polluted their homelands becomes and they must ever seek out new clean areas to get resources from. This is one of the most destructive times where many creatures become extinct do to over hunting. Also there is talk about anti-slavery of the Ocean, Mud and Jungle Tribes who were enslaved by mass during the Imperial age by the River, Grassland, Cave, Mountain and Desert Tribes.

Well first i draw them out in pencil. Then i scan the pencil drawing into Adobe Photoshop. Then i make 3 layers. The Bottom layer is the color, the middle is the line drawing put on a function called "multiply" Basiclly it makes all white parts transparent so you can see the color under the line drawing. Sortta like a coloring book. Then the top layer is the text i put on it.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_imperial.jpg)

Sorry this is out of order but this age goes between the Renaissance and Industrial Age of the River Tribe. This is the first time they traveled far  far east and discovered a new world. Un-like Earths there were no inhabitants but there were strange and exotic creatures as well as untamed landscapes. After the river tribe found it it became a race for land with the Grassland, Mountain and Desert tribes. By this time the Ocean, Swamp and Jungle Tribes are still to primitive and were used for slave labor by the other tribe. The only exception is the Cave tribe that used slaves for mining but did not have a navy to explore the New World.

This is a typical explorer with a compass in one tentacle and a flint-lock pistol in the other. This is more advance than the hand cannon but is not as advanced as the industrial revolver. Also you might notice that the armor is much lighter than the previous age for better movement and guns were getting better. Thus being slow would not help.

the imperial age one looks largely based on the spanish conquistadors, pretty cool though :)

Here are some coins in which have evolved over the ages. As the ages improve and the higher the cost goes the more advanced the money has gotten. This is money around Imperial Age. If you look carefully you can read the numbers from my Naucean numbers. The coins come in 2 - Bone, 4 - Copper, 8 - Tin, 16 - Bronze, 24 - Iron, 32 - Silver, 64 - Gold. There is also the 80 - Platinum (not shown). Over the ages the material and styles have changed. Also depending upon the leading tribe has changed it too. Sadly by the time of the Nano Age none of these coins are used and all currency is electronic. Thus making these only collectors items.

The coins dont neccesarily have to follow the same order of value as they do on earth.Gold has only artificial value because of its rarity. On naucea i'm assuming the abundance of metals matches that of earth. The ancient egyptians valued silver more highly than gold because of the abundance of gold in that area... just a thought. Although i notice iron is valued more highly than copper or tin which is a reverse of how it is on earth.

Also, there could be materials that are not on Earth due to maybe a mixing of elements making a different stone or mineral on other planets by maybe a climate change or such.

Well any planet will still have the same elements on the periodic table. I don't think we will find a new metal unless it is alien made.

Well, Earth rocks aren't typically all one element or compound for that matter...and there are waaaay more compounds than there are elements.  There's lots of possibilities, but since I'm no chemist/geologist I'd have probably just gone with Earth stuff too :)

Could do different distributions tho.  Like maybe your planet has unusually high concentrations of heavier elements due to something weird during its formation and rocks are mostly lead, copper is nowhere to be found, uranium is everywhere, and habitats exist floating on pools of mercury.

would that be impossible/ improbable in nature/ or highly reactive "Explosive"
of course the whole life that can produce explosives thing would be pretty cool
then again who can say the range of possibility is as limited as we think
I'd like to see what range of habitation certain types of life could have particularly the extreme-phoebes
If Carbon based (CHON) life likes a certain range then other life systems could have widely differing needs
I hope we can change the pallet of Textures and colors for our life making them different:
Red stars with cold volcanic worlds and sulfuric life
Violet blue stars with life clinging to the myriad of tiny rocks in its orbit
i just hope the life properties of the whole steller zoo can be exploited not just our own terran worlds

awsome Borogove my thoughts exactly

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_slave.jpg)

Here is a River Tribe plantation owner in the new world with a Jungle Tribe slave. This is during the Industrial Age but slavery has been going on since the Imperial Age. As you can see this slave is picking the red fang berry shown before in the Naucean food list. These are extremely hard to pick because they berry has a poisonous stinger on the end. Sadly over worked Jungle Tribe slaves die all the time from this berry due to their small size. However their dexterous tentacles are small enough and carefull enough to avoid the stinger alot more than any of the larger Naucean races.

The Jungle Tribe have been shipped by the boat load but not all make it to the new world. Only the deepest Jungle tribes have escaped slavery. But slavery is not forever, for in the future there has been anti-slavery wars which eventually lead to freedom and equal right for all Nauceans.

I didn't mean new elements but, I meant new materials because fusion of some elements are unstable to be made on Earth, or they just never happened. Or maybe something like mercury on a cold planet could be used as currency, but here it's basically useless unless on thermometers, maybe even a vacummed steam can be worth something, or a liquid. Still, I can't believe there can only be those elements, I mean we (humans) don't know what the universe literally looks like, or any other sentient planet (if there are any).

Yes. but this will be the last age that follows human history. We had world wars 1 and 2. The anuceans do not have such a war yet. They will start their transtion into electronics and computers.

Materials which would be brand new on every planet would be stuff like proteins and their equivalents. Scientists can synthesize quite a few but they still have to look for them in the wild before they can do that just because of the number of combinations.

Don't worry, you are allowed an infinite number of pages in one thread.

No offense to the Jungle tribe, but being that small has to have a significant effect on their intelligence, since their heads (assuming that's where the "brain" is) are any bigger proportionately.

After the Naucean Industrial age is the Flight Age. Unlike Earth the Nauceans did not have a World war. But they did develop air travel. During this mostly peace time planes were developed to move things around faster than boats, lysotrophant pulled cart or even the industrial age's steam machines. But not all time of peace last for long. more and more anti-slavery is becoming prevalent and soon a war over it will be inevitable. Aircraft are still not advanced enough to travel betten the old and new worlds but by the next age they will, which will change things for ever.

Naucean is a tropical planet with large oceans. There is one main continent, Upelluri and 3 smaller ones Adapa, Island of the Swamp Tribe, Ninkasi a small volcanic island in the middle of the Ea Ocean, and Utu a large island in which is colonized in the Imperial Age. Utu has jungles, plains, swamps, mountains and even a desert like Upelluri but is about half the size. However unlike Upelluri it is full of untapped resources. This abundance is the driving force for the Nauceans to travel here, especially by the industrial revolution when the Old world becomes polluted from dirty industry.

After the Flight Age tention mounts and the World is thrown in to its first true "world war". But unlike Earth's this is over slavery. The River and Grassland Tribe for the fist time in history have join forces in the idea of anti slavery. But The Desert, Mountain and New World conies do not want anything do do with it. The reason is the Desert Tribe uses them to convert their barren desert into a lush agricultural center, the Mountain tribe use them for plentiful mining and the new colonies use them for plantations. Due to the River and Grassland Colonies separate from their home tribes into the Plantation (River tribe's colony) and Slavery Tribes (Grassland Tribe's colony). For the Slavery tribe would get rich off capturing salves from the ocean, swamp and jungle tribe while the Plantation tribe would get rich of selling plentiful crops off the plantations to the desert and mountain tribe. Also the cave tribe is neutral during this time.

As the War escalates the 2 super powers Grassland and River Tribe create amazing new aircraft, sea craft and ground vehicles. One of the lesser known but very effective weapons is shown here in the "pterabat bombs". Pterabats are nocturnal desert creatures who roost in caves and under the bootom of Desert Tribe sphere homes. Taking advantage of this behavioral trait the River Nauceans developed the "pterabat bomb". This bomb drops out of their bombers and opens up its parachute. Once open the compartments slide out with sleeping pterabats on them tied to thin strings. One awake they see a roost because its day. Attached to them is a timed explosive that when they break the thin string activates it for a limited time. Enough so that the bats can find roosts all over the Desert tribes city. And then when the timers run out ... BOOM! Sphere homes bust into flames and the cities are inflamed.

_________________

On a side note America during World War II developed this same method with Mexican Freetail Bats with Naplam attached to them to drop over Japan. This project did not get to be applied in the war due to the Atom Bomb which made this very effective method obsolete.

Here is a Cave Tribe Genocide Plague Victim. Durring the Biotech Age the Desert Tribe unleashed a plague specifically targeted towards the Cave tribe which completely wiped them out. This allowed for the capture of the cave tribes mines for the desert tribe and angered the Mountain, River and Grassland Tribes. Unfortunately the Mountain tribe was close enough related to kill of half of the population as well as a 4th of the Grassland River and Swamp races. The Ocean, Desert and Jungle were all do diffrent to be effected by the plague except for rare circumstances.

This race specific plague caused huge boils, vomiting, running nose, blindness, starvation, raw flippers, trouble breathing, the body eating itself from the inside, internal hemeraging and diarrhea. If they were not killed in the first concentrated exposer they were killed with long painful suffering. It is airborn and spread to the other tribe mentioned before quickly. This meant an easy take over of the Desert tribe without the help of the River and Grassland tribe which were in a panic that they got effected too.

Well i was planning on the River Tribe being the dominant tribe. However that is just the government. There will still be other Naucean races within the River tribe by the end.

In the Galaxtic Age the Nauceans visit the Kazea's planet during their Modern Age and abduct their animals for genetic research and their own zoo planets. They do not bother the Kazea because they are sentient but it the Kazean's now develop conspiracy nuts saying their are UFOs, while the Kazean governments deny any such thing exists. The Nauceans hope that someday they will be advanced enough to become allies. However until then they plan to prod and probe their livestock, as seen in the picture above where they are abducting an Imizin.

Here is a River Tribe Steam Engine from the Industrial Age. These were alot faster than caravans of lystrophants. They like Earth's locomotive ran on steam power. The tracks ran East to West from the River Tribe to the Grassland Tribe and Also North to South from the Mountain Tribe to the Desert Tribe. The Railroad did not get to the jungle tribe until later when it was taken over by the Desert and Grassland Tribes and the Swamp Tribe region was not developed until the River Tribe took over. Also around that time New World was filled with tracks connecting the colonies and later plantation and slavery tribes. By the Atomic Age most lay in ruins due to the devastation. It was not until the reconstruction did any rail roads get put back in but by then it was mostly mag-lev trains.

man that animation showing the empires is really cool!

a really huge war must have happened, an atomic war maybe because right after the anti-slavery era, the former empires were a fraction of the origionals

and then as the empires recovered the Cave tribe expanded throughout the modern and digital era, and then BOOM in the biotech age the desert tribe wiped out the cave tribe and then just about took over most of the world

I'm not sure whether the robot tribe just represents a tribe of cyborg types or if it truly was a machine uprising. very cool though! :)

You got it right. For the most part...

The Anti-Slavery Era led to an Atomic war which wiped out everyone above ground. Thus as you notice those in the mountain or hills were saved, because of bunkers and natural caves. However the massive feeling underground exposed the cave tribe to new technology and they got a boost. Thus expanding and actually having their own little Renaissance of kicking the butt of the Desert tribe for the Grassland and River Tribes.

Then like i mentioned due to the hatred of the cave tribe by the desert tribe they creatures the genocide plague that wiped them out once and for all. And the desert tribe took over their land as well ad the land of the other tribes which got hit. You have to remember they were not only were more genetically separated than the others but they had the cure to it.

Then since the Desert Tribe was dominant they created the robots, since they still wanted slaves, but could not really enslave anyone anymore. Plus these were more efficient than living Nauceans. Thus the robots lasted for awhile, until they turned on their masters and uprise quickly taking over all except the River Tribe which took refuge in the swamps. The robots could not attack as well there and eventually the River tribe developed a killer computer virus/worm in which took over all the robots. To this day the Nauceans do not use robots, due to this bad experience. Thankfully they defeated them and made it to colonize the stars as a peaceful species who intrests are those of the biological sciences and genetic engineering of alien species.

sounds alot like the Dune universe because in the dune movie (the older one I think, don't remember if they said this in the one that was on the sci fi channel a year or two ago) there was a little premise about the past (theres also a book series done by the son of the author, can't remember the name atm, that does the historical area of the Dune series long before the dune era) that they once had robots and thinking machines, then there was a machine war or something and then when the machines were vanquished, they no longer used thinking machines. Somehow I think you were inspired by that :)

i had acually forgot about that in Dune. But i was thinking more like The Maxtix for the uprising, but thought ti was stupid that they blocked out the sun because they could just launch solar satlites into orbit and tether down the power with space elevators or better yet just move to Mars or something. That's why i did a virus instead, which if good enough could kill them off enough so they could defeat them easily and still leave the River Tribe Technologically advanced y the next age so they can go explore the universe.

Here is you surprise huggkruka. :) (I was not sure if you had crops or not so i made field of those green leafy things you had on your food chart).

The Nauceans are taking samples of Kazean crops which leave their famous River Tribe symbol (the one thats on their poncho) of triangles in a line representing the river. However the Kazea do not know this and call them "Crop Triangles" thus bringing another piece to their UFO phenomenon.

Here is a Prehistoric River Tribe Naucean chasing after a leptikdillo, a small hopping insectivore who are abundant in the river basin. As you can see this is before they used clothing or ornamental items. But unlike the Ocean tribe who is also naked these guys walk on land as well as swim in the river. It turns out they can run quite fast of their "fleet" and can grab prey such as the leptikdillo with its oral tentacles quite easily since it had so much of a reach as well as their necks.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_priest.jpg)

Here is the High Priest of the Goddess Nauceanica. She is the creator of all things and is why the planet is named after her. She holds out her 6 oral tentacles. Top right holds the home Red Dwarf Star, Au and in the other is the huge Super Giant Star in the neighboring soloar system. Both give their solar rays and give warms to the soloar system and the strange seasons. In each lower oral tentacles she hold s the 2 moon Serina and Sina. And in the middle oral tentacles she hold on the right darkness and all things evil and on the left light and all things good. She holds them out to separate them and keep the balance. Also on the headdress is the holy blue saphire stone with a blue feather which represent the air.

The High Priest is holding red olivenuts which are used for healing, a dead leptikdillo which is an offering to the goddess, incense in a teapot-like object, and is adorned with many tentacles rings. On the neck poncho it has the holy symbol of the goddess which looks like a stream, as opposed to the River tribes poncho which looks lore like waves of the river. On the robe it has swirls which represent the stars and galaxies seen in the sky as well as the swirlling water. They believe that outer space is one big vast black ocean. And when they die they go to these stars in the afterlife ocean.

Naucean temples are separate from the villages or cities and are usually in very rural areas which have a natural beauty about them. They all have complex ponds, fountains and waterways in which reperesent the goddess Nauceanica. There are many fresco paintings about the holy stories as well as many sculptures made of clay which is thought to be special in that it need water to create. The Swamp Tribe infact have an entire clay temple in honoring this magical property of clay.

The high priests also believe they can look into the future my scrying into water. This method is known as "hydromancy" and works like an Oracle. Only the high priest can get visons and they believe these visions are from the goddess herself. Durring the Renaissance the river tribe built a gigantic hydromancy pool in which became one of the 8 wonders of the world.

The Mountain tribe have ice temples and ices sculptures in which they use to depict the stories and they too believe that ice is a holy material just like mud and water and even steam. Also you can imagine hot springs are very holy places and usually become places for temples because of its special nature.

question Hydro,

Wjay do you mean sites? Like my website? Well back when i was all into Neverwinternights i worked on a project called Maztica and helped with the website there. The guy who hosted it from his computer liked it so much he offrere me a personal site. But I never used it until i saw Spore. Then i wanted to make a site that showed off my creatures. Eventually he sugested it become a gallery site for all. And i asked "can you dod that?" and he said shure and chnaged it around for me and has been exited about Spore too ever sicne.

Roads of Maztica
http://rom.rpgs.sytes.net/

Now as for the drawings i first must say i orgainally wanted to be a zoologyst as a kid so i am a complte bio nerd also i had an interest in ancent civilization as a teenager. Also due to my horrific math i found out it was unlikely i could become a zoologist becuse its everything that a doctor is but for animals. So i chose my next passion art, but i was not sure what, but as i got more and more interested in 3D and picked up lame programs and eventually saved up for good ones and then started haking games like the Sims, Dungeon Sieg and Neverwinter with my 3D models and found out that doing 3D movies is fun but doing 3D games  would be better. So i cahnged my major from "3D Animation" to "Game Art And Design" every sicne. Luckly i was already on the right track with the 3D Aniamtion that i did not waist too many lcasses but it has left me in schoollonger for changing.

In short i have lways wanted to make up my own world for a video game but never knew exactly how it could be done. So the resech into civilzation and ecoystems and stuf have really helped me make the Nauceans because i already have a head start of what real life version existed on Earth. Oh and as well as all the resech into Mexo-American civilizations like the Aztec, Mayan, Inca, and South Western Indians from working on Maztica.

I hope that answers your question.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_bettlecraft.jpg)

Here is a Naucean Digital Age Beetlecraft. Like Earth's beetle its wings unfold from a shelled cover. Like most Naucean design it is based around spheres. It is equipped with 3 guns (1 in front and 2 in the back) it also can drop smart bombs from the bottom hatch. You enter the air craft from the back and in case of a crash a naucean will be shot out the back and saved by their parachutes. There is only room for one naucean per craft but it has the state of the art computer equipment. The wing themself can fold up and are from an advanced polymer that can fold as well as keep a shape. It is very light weight, and has to be because of the amount of fuel it need to carry in it round haul. In the very back under the 2 back guns is a rocket booster in which they use when they want to go very fast. But it is really used. The Beetle craft is also a golder and if it ever ran out of fuel could be flown like a glider. This is one trick. It can fly up to soaring heights and just glider then used the wings to go fast or the rocket to got very fast. Bettlecrafts can also over in place like a hummingbird and can use vertical take off if needed. But normally it takes off like any Earth aircraft on its 3 wheels (2 on the front and 1 on the back.

Even though it's not very effective(at least not with modern materials) inspiration has always been taken from nature, so it's quite logical. Also, it looks a lot cooler with flapping wings. It reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle(great movie).

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_hydromancypool.jpg)

Here is The Great Hydromancy Pool, one of the 8 wonders of the world. It was built in the River tribe empire during the Renaissance. It is made of gold and glass and is the shape of a sphere. Which is suppose to be the perfect shape. It is not only filled with water but it contrains tiny glowing bacteria who at night glow (as seen in the picture). The sphere acts as a greenhouse for them and the water is recycled using pumps. The power for the pumps is ironically a river close by in which they originally got the water and the bacteria from. The river is known as the glowing river, because of these creatures. On the top of the dome is Nauceanica the Creator Goddess in her famous pose in which she holds both stars, both moons and good and evil all in balance in her oral tentacles. The dome is held up by 16 side pillars and one central pillar. The walkway goes to the exact center of the sphere and the water falls though a hole in the center of that. The high Priest will either bathe in the waterfall to get inspiration of look on either side and look into his reflection or a combination of both. Many Nauceans say that this has healing powers and on the "Nauceanica Day" Nauceans form miles around are allow to be healed of their aliments by bathing in the water dropped from above. Otherwise no one is allowed in except the High Priest. However the door is left open with a rope across so tourists can peak in one by one and leave offerings at the doorway.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_warlystrophant.jpg)

Up until the Industrial Age the Lystrophant was used for work and warfare. This is a war lystrophant during the Renaissance Age, during this time they were the most armored. As you can see they are completely covered from trunk to tail with iron plating as well as chainmail under it. The tentacle "tusks" have sharp points on them for goring and the 2 "trunks" have spiked maces on them. The nostrils and eyes were covered with a grade for protection and they were guided with leather reins in which connected on the "tusks" on up to the spherical archer's nest. This nest could hold up to 4 nauceans (one controlling the lystropant and 3 archers). The archer's nest has 3 windows and one door on top in which to get in. This was firmly planted on the back and was high enough to see pretty much the whole battle. They were practically walking towers with a nasty front end which would pummel and gore its opponents. They moved slow but was a power house. Thai only weakness was their stomach in which if an enemy could get under without being tramples could stab them in the heart thus taking down the whole creature. It was not until futher advances in gunpowder and the tank that these creatures became obsolete in battle.

Here is the Digital Age city of Glowing River, the River Tribes capital city. These are just a section of the types of buildings in the city. This is also the home of the Great Hydromancy Pool, which was reconstructed after the Atomic Age and the fall out. Durring this time it was a powerhouse of culture, economics and freedom now that Slavery was over. The Cave tribe during this time was also thriving and brough many new ideas to all the tribes. Infact they developed the computers in which allowed for such modern cities as this and the capability for the biotech age which eventually backfired...

Are they like the Tau and are trying to enlighten other races or do they seek to further themselves only? I sure would like to see what would happen if the Naucean met the Gracken.

I have mentioned before that he Nauceans are the best Geneticists in the galaxy. They have moved beyond most conflicts but will defend themselves if necessary. All they really want to do is discover and catalog new species as well as create many of their own and create zoo planets. As seen with the Kazea, they will leave lower sentient creatures alone but probe and catalog the other non sentant creatures on the planet.

In short basically all my other creatures posted were created by the Nauceans on one of their many zoo planets.

Like Hugg's picture of the Kazea live cycle thing i though i should do my own.

As you can see the Naucean lays eggs. They build a large mound on the beach or river bank. during modern times they would create a nesting building. Naucean reach sexual maturity at 12 years. Can reproduce at any time of the year. They are pregnant for 6 months then lays egg in the nest. After that the egg is incubated for 6 months until egg hatches. They lay 1 to 4 egg per clutch. And the infants are taken care of by the elderly Nauceans. They are fed by the parents and do have close attachments with them. However the parents are usually out hunting, gathering or working so it is the role of the older nauceans to care for them.

Naucean babies are born with huge heads and big floots. They usually walk in a tripod manner using their tail as a 3rd foot. They do not start walking until around the 2 year and are suck in the nest peeping for food and kept warm by the older Nauceans. Nauceans learn to speak around the same time as walking but do not master their oral tentacles until around 5 years of age. And even then its a continuing learning cycles for the rest of their lives. Not all Nauceans make it to maturity. But as the ages get better the sauces rate of this improves significantly.

Nauceans are natural born swimmers and do not need to be taught. This is because of their recent ancestors living in the ocean. The ocean tribe learn to walk too but only for such things as surface firepits and nesting. Thus they do not learn to walk until much later in life.

I have posted it before but i will post again my Naucean General Stats.

Name: Naucean

Type: Warm-blooded Bipedal Marine Vertebrate

Lifestyle: Social Omnivore

Habitat: Mangrove-like Wetlands

Size: 10 to 12ft long (females), 8 to 10 ft long (males)

Weight: 300 to 400 lbs (females), 200 to 300 lbs (males)

Diet: Small aquatic creatures, small terrestrial creatures, fruits, seeds, leaves, roots, eggs

Hunt/Forage Success Rate: 50% hunt, 75% forage

Armor: Skin is weak so they make padded armor out of fibers for protection.

Defenses: Strong tail with fluke as well as strong kicking legs. oral tentacles do not hurt but can pull a target into its very sharp beak. Weapons: No real natural weapons but Bronze Age in technology.

Tools: 2 hand on 2 of the 6 tentacles. Each with 2 fingers and 2 thumbs (one on either side of the hand).

Method of Eating: Grab with tentacles and bring to beak to slice. Then into the gizzard to be ground up then digested and finally out the anus on the opposite end.

Lifespan: About 60 years

Reproductive Rate: Reaches sexual maturity at 12 years. Can reproduce at any time of the year.

Gestation: 6 months then lays egg.

Offspring incubation: 6 months until egg hatches after being laid.

Number of Offspring: 1 to 4

Offspring Survival Rate (before age of maturity): 90% they are raised in a family group and everyone helps raise the babies.

On spore wiki, Hydro states the lifespan at being about 60 years...but is that Naucean years or earth years ???

Earth years. Which is not that much off from Naucean years. Think of the Naucean planet like Mars orbit.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_flowit.jpg)

Here is a River Flowit. They are the pets of the Nauceans. They are from a carnivorous family known as the "tentacle tooth". Like most land creatures on the planet they all came from creature which had oral tentacles and a beak within a pseudo mandible. These tentacle teeth evolved their tentacles to act like 6 sharp teeth within the pseudo mandible and of course still have the sharp beak that leads to the real mouth.

River flowits are domesticated and originated from the ocean flowits which lived like Earth's sea otters. The Ocean tribe were first to domesticated them and they were used for getting into hard spots in coral reefs and under water rocky holes. Like the Nauceans they are amphibious. The river tribe uses them not only for the water hunting for for land hunting. They can go just as well in animal burrows and can climb trees very well. Their sense of smell is amazing due to breeding. They also have sensitive whiskers in which it can use to detect movement even in the dark and underwater.

River Flowits have also been bred for herding livestock as well as bred as house hold pets. They can herd the pig and chicken-like stock just as well in the water as on land (see food image).

This is a typical Naucean river Tribe Citizen during the Modern Age. They have discovered radio and plastics. You can see that it is wearing a walkman radio on his head and are wearing neon style clothing, which is the current fad. Traditional metal tail rings have been replaced with neon plastic ones. Also the floots are plastic with zippers rather than the traditional laces. The only thing that has not changed is the neck poncho which shows off the national colors. These are pass down generation to genration and are very special to the Nauceans. They take great pride in their neck ponchos. And they can only be given by an older family member to a younger one. Most are hand made.

Also in the picture is the domesticated pet known as the River Flowit. They are like Earth's otters and during this time are mainly used as pets and in law enforcement. Some farms still use them for herding live stock or for sport hunting but other than that they are mainly used as companion animals. They are very smart and can be go on land, in the water, in the trees and even underground. They come in diffrent breeds such as the desert which are adapted to the sand, or the mountain which are very pudgy and have a thick layer of bubbler on them as well as the very agile jungle who is one of the best climbing breeds.

Here is a Naucean Bubble Car, It seat only 3 due to the shape of Nauceans and their tails. They have to be offset so their tails do not hit the other. They get in from the back and sit on little saddle like stools. They put the seat belt over the top of them. They drive using levers and buttons as well as floot peddles. All of the engine and stuff is on the bottom so in the back it has a little ramp to get up above that. Like all Nauceans structures preaty much everything is spherical, from the shape of the vehicle, the spheres on the levelers that bot turn and move to diffrent sides as well as the wheels being spherical. The car runs on bio-diesel since Nauceans never use oil for fuel but do use them for plastics. Later they eventually run them on hydrogen power. But this picture is from the Modern Age.

Here is a Naucean "SJ". "SJ" stand for Sphere Jockey, because they have spheres instead of disks for their music. They place them in holes and they spinaround like a track ball and it reads the outside of the sphere ball like a CD. As to can see he has a whole stand of Nauceans favorite RAP, POP, DANCE and Techno favorites (or their equivalent in Naucean). From the side cylindrical speakers have have spinning laser light show that Nauceans love while dancing. The top speakers are the normal and tweeters while the bottom are the bass woofers and sub woofers.

The guy here is named SJ Bubblerap after the comment made about Nauceans listening to rap, and all of audio spheres are like bubbles  ;) He is more of a Punk Naucean cause if you see he is wearing all the red plastic tail rings and even oral tentacle rings and red and yellow plastic shoes like the flowit walker. But also has many punk items like water style tattoos on hes face, neck and tail as well as a nostril pericing and tail fluke piercings too. In this tentacles are audio spheres as well as bottle of turnabegga ale. Turnabegga was seen in the spots picture and the drink has been seen with the flowit walker and on a round billboard on the cityscape picture. And of course on his head he has head phones like the other and red shades, just to be cool.

Naucean Sounds
http://spore-planet.rpgs.sytes.net/nauceantalk.wav

Here is a group of Nauceans talking to each other. The low deep sounds come out from the natal passage through out the pseudo mandible and comes out the nostrils while the squawking sounds come out of the beak. Its an interesting double language with high and low sounds. Nauceans tend to think in dualistic principals. For instance they can also see in duel where the larger eyes see color like we do and the smaller yes only in inferred. Even in their religion the Naucean Goddess holds up the large and small moons opposite, large and small stars opposite and good and evil / light and dark spheres in her oral tentacles. This balance between opposites is the way of life for the Nauceans. The crest and the trough of a wave as a Naucean Hydromancer would say.

If youve been following my Spore-type game on the forum game boards youll have noticed that the Cryoeltans have finally reached the interstellar phase of their civilisation. As such I could use some properly developed aliens for them to interact with. If you dont mind i'd like to have the Cryoeltans encounter the Nauceans, Kazea and any other creature thats original and cool. If you dont mind, PM me with some instructions or plausible stroylines, I dont want to write something that conflicts with your own conceptions of how your creations should act.

Perhaps if you convered your Cryoelthans to a post with pictures on here i would be more egar to have contact like i did for the Nauceans and the Kazea.

Ok i coppied all the "description posts" only from that thread and pasted it into MS word to read. The thread has only 26 pages but man at 12 font only it comes out to 30 pages of pure text of just decriptions (not discussions or choices). I have alot of reading ahead of me and would really like a short summary.

you should read the percusa one on gamefaqs, unfortunately the dumb maint thing on those forums means that older posts are soon deleted so the previous parts are long gone.

anyway, you can also check out the one I'm doing, another spore for the BBS:revival of the inceptus. you don't have to read the origional one which I'm continuing off of, but if you do read the origional one, let me warn ya that it gets kinda crappy on the last few pages of that first one. I didn't origionally do the first one, but yea....

because some ppl like them. you don't have to join in if you don't like doing it. some of the other spin-off ones have slowed down and theres only 3 or 4 still going, although its mainly the one that I am doing and Krakow Sams.

anyhow, we are kinda hijacking this thread a little bit (not by a whole lot and its ok).

what about some creatures from other environments like the mountains, deserts and jungles?

Title: Re: Naucean - My New Creature
Post by: Hydromancerx on February 24, 2006, 02:53:22 am
Yes but Cave Tribe and Desert Tribe do not always have healthy offspring since they are the most genetically diffrent within the species. Ocean tribe is the universal tribe that can breed easily with any because its the origin tribe. It goes like this.

Ocean -> Desert
          -> Swamp
          -> Jungle
          -> River -> Grassland
                       -> Mountain -> Cave

Here is a cave painting of a Naucean hand tentacle. They would spit out wet red dirt over the tentacle from their nostrils thus covering them up and leaving under it a solute of the hand tentacle. This is a common practice among all Stone Age Land living Nauceans.

I'm sure they could develop an air brush from a hollow bone packed with the red clay dirt. and wet dirt would be a natural paint, all they'd have to use is a red clay type dirt.

Here is a Naucean sub from the Modern Age. Unlike their military subs this was made for scientific exploration. Naucean even though amphibious have their limits. They can only hold their breathe so long and go deep before the pressure is to great upon their bones. This is why the deep submarine was made. To go to where no Naucean has gone before. After its first missions they have discovered many many new creature never seen before. Most notable are the multipeds above 4 legs, which are not know in the higher depths and on land. From these creatures new discoveries in medicine and new insights into the evolution of the Nauceans.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_drugs.jpg)

Here are some Naucean drugs.

Red Fang Berry
This has been seen before with the great plantions in the new world worked by mostly Jungle Tribe slaves. The quills are very poisonous but it turns out when smoked it has the addictive qualities of tobacco and coffee combine but with the scent of mocha chocolate. It takes alot of skill to get this addictive juice from the plant without being hurt by the poison in the quill. It is smoked using a berry smoking pipe in which is inserted into the nostrils on the top of the head. The nostrils can open and close like a whales which simulates humans lips opening and closing on a tobacco pipe.

Red Olivenuts
These have been used for a very long time by the Hydromanctic Priests. When cooked they turn pink and give off an incense. When eatten they have healing properties and work as a pain reliever like aspirin as well as cleaning out the digestive track like prunes. This effect is known as "the great cleansing".

Turmabegga
This common tuber has been used in sports such as turnabegga ball as well as brewed into turnabegga ale. It has a similar taste as tequila and will make Nauceans drunk. Ironically it also is great as a sports drink when fermented properly (as seen by the Flowit walker drawing). This is the preferred drink at rave/discos during the Modern Age.

Quill Sponge
This is an animal and not a plant but its protective spines are actually contain a sticky liquid. When dried out it makes a light blue powder. This substance is usually rubbed on the oral tentacles. When this is done they are inflamed and get the sense of hot and col as well as great pleasure. After this takes place they usually experience hallucinations as well as "stoned" quality to their behavior. Some Naucean claim it is is a good a sex, but with cravings for food.

Very cool love the designs going on here.

Although, I clearly recognise that you are using Photoshop here coloring..hmm scanned sketches. And the technique for colouring...you set the sketch layer above the colour layer and set it to multiply?
And for the shading, blacks and whites in the colour layer or on a seperate layer set on either multiply or screen?

Checking, because I think you could improve much on your colouring. I'm quite the colouring freak right here.
See your avatar there? I know exactly how that was coloured, and I could duplicate that effect easily. Not all to good at the drawing part though.

Hey, does that matter? RedFishs pictures are insanely well coloured, mine are so-so, Hydro's are very good, but it doesn't matter. The ideas and the concepts are important here. A boring concept with good colouring isn'ta as good as the oppsite. Anyway, good work on the drugs Hydro, nice connection to the Rave scene.

Yes i am using Photoshop. Theses are my steps

1. Draw in pencil
2. Scan Drawing
3. Contract the pencil darker
4. Re size
5. Crop any black lines at the side from scanning
6. Copy Background
7. Delete background
8. Add new layer
9. Use multiply on pencil layer
10. Color in using soft brushes
11. shade using burn tool.
12. Touch up by erasing or add ing stuff.
13. Sometimes use gradient fill for background.
14. Add text and labels
15. As as JPG
16. Upload to FTP
17. Post here and then Spore Planet and Spore Wiki.

Anywho i am open to suggestions on coloring. What technique do you have in mind?
Title: Re: Naucean - My New Creature
Post by: huggkruka on March 04, 2006, 03:11:08 pm

3. Contrast
4. Colour
5. Add a new layer with 40% opacity and draw basic shadows
6. ???
7. Profit!

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_gobblehorn.jpg)

 Here is the a Mountain Tribe Woolly Gobblehorn Rider. Since Lystrophants eat to much and hate cold weather the Mountain tribe domesticated the woolly gobblehorn. Common gobblehorns have seen seen in the river tribe area as deer like creatures, this is more like a big moose, caribou or yak. They use these mostly for transporting ore from the abundant mines (as seen in the picture). They fill up the sled with precious ore and bring it back to their spherical yurts where they have forges. This particular picture is during he Bronze Age as seen with the Bronze harpoon-like spear. They use these to hunt other mountain creatures who live atop the snowy peaks. The mountains are the only place on the planet that has snow. The planet is too hot for polar icecaps. But the mountains are highenough to be cold enough for snow. You might also notice the Mountain tribe's flag and design, their colors are white and light blue (as opposed to the river tribe that is blue and green). The river tribes design is an up and down zig zag while the mountain tribe has a similar pattern but with a normal zig zag then a small one half the size, representing the mountains, rather than the river like the river tribe has it. They are very similar because the mountain tribe river tribe and grassland tribe were once the same tribe. On a side note the cave tribe have the reverse version which represent the stalactites and stalagmites. Their colors are black and white.

It makes it like a cloring book in that if you pick the layer under it you can still see the gray line son top of it. Think of it like making it a tranparency.

Yes I am using Photoshop. Theses are my steps

Anyhow I am open to suggestions on coloring. What technique do you have in mind?

Ok cool. :) Comments are in blue.

1. Draw in pencil – Noticed that, the edges are a bit undefined here and there, and that while edges are usually a tad darker then the fill, that’s why dark-lining can look good sometimes, but this a choice of style. And seeing your work isn’t that detailed it doesn’t matter much. As it tends to get messy that way with much detail.

2. Scan Drawing – (duh, although you could trace it if you had a tablet.)

3. Contrast the pencil darker – Duplicate layer>top layer set to multiply>opacity of top layer set to 50%, that preserves some values.

4. Resize – You can also scan them smaller, it doesn’t matter much really.

5-8. Standard

9. Use multiply on pencil layer. – A very common method. Very very common used for coloring scanned drawings. But you can go further then this, as this way, your lines are always the multiplicity hue of your pencil color. So that’s, grayish black.
And as in real life you don’t really have lines, only contrast and darker shades of color, that is what defines the edges.
So you can put it in a different order and recolor the lines by using the ‘color’ layer setting (after having blocked out the solids of those colors). I’ll explain this more later on.

10. Color in using soft brushes. – Hmm, maybe ok for a style choice, but personally I don’t like it that much. As it doesn’t define the shape well enough and can get vague, especially for the edges.
But, seeing you don’t have a tablet. And it works well enough here. But try some hard brushes, or some custom ones sometimes.

11. Shade using burn tool. – Eugh, thought something like that yes. Stay, off, the, burn tool. Really it is a horrible tool for shading. The tool actually is for editing photos to touch the shades up a bit, but for shading itself, it is a bad tool.

12. Touch up by erasing or adding stuff. – Okay.

13. Sometimes use gradient fill for background. – That’s ok, can get ugly sometimes, but is ok. Adding creatures to environments is maybe better but och. It’s design after all.
(The ‘art’ direction “design” is well known for a overabundant use of gradients, which is somewhat despised in the art world).

14-17 – Irrelevant.

True, but not everyone has Photoshop. And some people can color way better with pencils and such then on the computer, and it has a certain personality to it.

9. Use multiply on pencil layer

What does multiply do?

It makes it like a coloring book in that if you pick the layer under it you can still see the gray line son top of it. Think of it like making it a transparency.

Almost correct. What it actually does is using the top layers brightness values (0% being black, 100% being white), to lower the underlying layers content’s brightness with a percentage (of the multiply layer) of the colors actual brightness.
It is more complex with color, so let me explain it with simple gray.
If you put a 50% gray atop another 50% gray. And set the top one on multiply, the lower gray is show to be 50% of it’s original brightness value, so it becomes a 25% gray.
But with colors over colors it also percentually lowers the distance in hue translated to a lower brightness value. So a 50% blue on top of a 50% orange becomes black.
And does some more things to top that, I don’t really know much about that part.

Ok, hmm. I think I’ll make a tutorial, that would be easier to explain. That’s going to take more time though...

You still have so much to learn about the wonderful world of Photoshop...

Ok, here we go.

First off, this thingy to help you on the terms.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/MadGiraffe/colourtable.jpg)

 
Quote
Are you saying that you want me to shade using like a transparent black layer? What do you do for highlight spots?

There are a lot of ways in doing this, I’m going to discuss 2. I both used them, the first one I used a lot in my earlier day, I’m using #2 more right now.

Technique #1:
Pick a color for what you are coloring. Now make a lighter/warmer shade for the highlights, and a darker/cooler shade for the shadows. And maybe pick the contrasting color shade for it too for the reflect shade, or the closest environmental color.
Now put the main color on one layer. Shade the shadows in with the darker color in another layer, same goes for the lighter color. And then fool around with the layer properties a bit to get what you want.
For the shadows you can use: Multiply, color burn and overlay. Try some others maybe too,
And for the highlights: Screen, color dodge and overlay. Just try something.
And to let is flow and shade a bit more you can adjust the opacity and use more layers to build the layers of shadings trough opacity and what surface they cover, or you could do that directly trough the opacity of your brush.

Technique #2:
Fill everything with a 50% gray.
I use my Wacom for this. I make a custom brush that doesn’t change size to pressure but only it’s opacity, that way I have full control over the shading. With the mouse you can use a low opacity brush or something, or some opacity building layers.
And then I make a small palette in one layer, with pure white and black. And then I start shading the subject using the alt+click quick eyedropper. When I have a fully defined subject, I get to the coloring.
This where I can do a bunch of stuff, mostly I set a few ‘overlay’ or ‘color’ property layers for the colors and fool around with the colors I put in them and the opacities. And those color layers go above the shaded layer.

I advise you to lock up your mouse and get used to you Wacom right now, because that not having control over it is complete bull on not using it. Because it is a brilliant tool that opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the digital artist. Pen pressure mostly. Control.
You just have to get used to it at the beginning, so you have to use it non stop and you’ll get over it. You’ll see that after some time you can get way more accurate with a Wacom then a mouse. Especially with the full screen orientation set on instead of distance movement (this is very important to put on).
Sure, maybe you can make a better straight line with a mouse a bit, but like no hell you can make curves and sketch like you can with a Wacom.

Aaaah god nooooo......the horror...Sponge tool saturates, it doesn't highlight.
And burn tool is way too hard to control correctly most of the time, and it messes up the values. You end up with blotchy badly shaded crap.
It is better to control the shading colors and values trough adding another layer for the shading and use the appropriate surrounding contrast surface colors for that. That way the shadows are better to read and live up the colors of the surface better instead of making it just black.
Burn and dodge(that one highlights, sponge doesn’t it saaatuuuraaatess) tools are for touching up only, and photo’s most of the time. That’s what they are made for originally, not for shading. And still you’re better off not using them. These tools are prescribed as the great big evil no no of digital art.

And to top it all, read through this brilliant tutorial, bookmark it and read it some later times. Read it, live it.

Here is a River Tribe Infantry during the Atomic Age. Durring this time was one of the most destructive periods in Naucean history. So much so it almost wiped out the species. This age is between the anti-slavery age and the rocket age. This war was mainly over the Plantation and Slavery Tribes forming.

As you can see from the picture during this age was the first time radio was used and the River tribe took advantage of this with their own version of the walkie talkie. They also discovered metal zippers in this age as well as the use of camouflage clothing and war paint. His clothing is also an early version of a bullet proof vest. They have not discovered kevklar yet but it is a light body armor none the less. They also are wearing a gas mask due to chemical warfare at the time. They would use stinging gas as well as poisonous gas.

Sadly many Nauceans died not only in battle but were bombed. Those that survived that died from the fallout and there was Nuclear winter in various places for at least a decade or more. The only reason the Naucean survived at all was because e of their mountain bunkers. The most surprising outsome of all this is the fact that after most of the radiation went away the Cave Tribe got a boost to technology and begin to dominate in later ages until the genocide plague in the Biotech Age.

Very nice! I love the WW-esque influence going on there. But a gasmask, how would that work when their graspers are in their mouths?

The shading looks better. Maybe needs more definition and contrast, but it's fine. You tried out your wacom?

The real mouth is in the back of the fake mouth. They have a 2nd mask on the beak of the true both and the other over the nostrils on the top of the head. In short what looks like the mouth is not really a mouth. It is only a opening cavity in which the tenticles rest in are protected. See my skellton or anatomy drawing on the first page to see what i mean.

I don't know but I sure love the creativity of his creature, it's very original with the graspers coming of the mouth, yet at the same time familar. Excellecnt texturing. I wish I had photoshop dammit lol

You know, reviewing all the stuff you've done for the Nauceans, a thought occurred to me: you are possibly making the strongest case for including clothing in Spore of all these threads. None of your Naucean clothing is more, essentially, than a reskin job with bits tacked on -- which is exactly the kind of simple functionality that WW said they would look for when deciding whether to include clothes. And considering that WW said he was impressed with your creature... well, we'll see.  ;D

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_mouth.jpg)

This is to show the real mouth which is the beak in the back of the pseudo mandible cavity. 3 tentacles grow out of either side of the beak and the beak has a top and bottom with a single tongue. It has no teeth but uses a gizzard to digest food. When the pseudo mandible is close the 6 tentacles rest on the bottom pseudo mandible and are scrunched up near the front where there is more space. As you can see without the pseudo mandibles the skull looks alot like an oviraptor head.

Have you thought about how to reproduce this effect in the editor? I'm sure you have. ;D Personally, I'd think the easiest way would be skimping on the inner beak and making the pseudomandibles the actual mouth, with the grasper tentacles joined to the side of the head at the jaw.

I am going to have it where i think the top will not move up and down like in the picture but be locked in a horizontal postion then the bottom will be may a jaw shaped limb that can open and close letting out the tentacle or closing up and hiding them all. Feeding time should be fun since it will look like a squid when it feed the beak in the back of the cavity.

EDIT: Or heck better yet make it so that the it looks like its slightly open and have have it fully close or open thus the skull will look that way and the reak both will be in the back. I bet that would work the best :D

Heck, with the Dev Team hanging out in here, and your creature being the most fleshed out and well known, they may have just gone ahead and made sure things like psuedo mandibles and floots are available parts in the editor!

Floots woulnd't be a problem. Just create two stumpformed legs and play around witht hem, and I'm sure you can create floots. Not all legs has to end in premade feet, as you can see in this picture:

Here is a Copper Age firepit. A Naucean is dancing its procedural dance while the other plays is Naucean horn and pushes up and down on a bellow for the firepit. They have a glowing basket like structure in which the fire pit sits in. The reeds are made of fire resistant reeds that have sticky sap that will not catch fire. Then with the bellows he pushes up and down and makes flames shoot up out of the small top. It is an amazing sight. These are used for ceremonial proposes like this one. The dance they are doing now is thehunting dance in which it tells a story about how they went into the wilderness and hunted down a large gobblehorn and brought it back. They paint their bodies and wave their oral tenticales around while singing and dancing about this. Their voices sound like a cross between a penguin and a whale when they talk and sing.

Coo. Do they really play the horns with their pseudomandible though? I'd think they'd use their nostrils, what with less loss of airflow and all that.

Because they can get quite annoying, especially if there are a lot of them. Animation can be cool sometimes, but it really shouldn't be in the signature.

Here is a River Tribe Nauconaut during the Rocket Age. This is during on of the first space walks. The River Tribe may have been first in Space but it is the Cave Tribe which made it first to the smaller moon Sina and the Desert Tribe to the Larger moon Sirenia. Infact all the tribe left (river, grassland, cave, mountain and desert) eventually made it to Space. Things were going well in space too with a space station, satlies, space telescope and even moon bases but all that was put on hold during the robotic age and all space flights were stopped to fight the war.

It has the Naucean symbol for 2 (SS) and 4 (V) on it. However its not 24 sicne its all base 8. So 2 (SS) and 4 (V) would come out to the value of 20 (SS_V). Which stand for his number. He is the 20th River Tribe Nauconaut.

Here is the chart for ya

That is just one great source of drawings and such! You know, I'd just LOVE to see some sci-fi type novel written using artwork like that. The Naucean world, its' creatures, habitats, technology, culture, etc.. Hey! We could use a "SPORE Stories" section to make stories about our creatures. Truely amazing. Amazing!

Here is a soldier from the anti-slavery age. This is when the first conflict between those who thought slavery was wrong and those who thought it was right. this conflicted so much so that the colonies split and made their own new tribes of the Slavery and Plantation tribes. It was not untilthe end of the Atomic age and they were wiped out with the atom bomb did slavery finally end. Much improvesments from this age to the atomic age came along.

On the solder you can see i has much of the unchanged items of past ages like a floot with ties, the neck poncho and side bags. However the hat was improved to a helm and the armor was changed to hardened leather. The shot gun had to be reloaded at it was not until the atomic age that the machine gun was introduced. Overall the mistakes of this age were solved by the Atomic Age.

Here is a River Tribe Naucean from the Digital Age. As you can see he has a prosetic tail which can be adjusted with the panel at the side. Although too heavy for swimming they do need their tails for a counter balance. On the boots you can see its close not with zippers but a computer adjusted fit. On his head is a head set in which can be used as a radio, digital music player or wireless phone. On his hand is a hologram sphere which displays their version of television and wireless internet. On his nose is a tattoo and on the prosetic tail are diffrent symbols. each set of words mean things like "luck", "bravery" or "strength". These are normally put on tail bracelets or tentacle rings. Durring this age it is more acceptable for free expression such as tattoos and piecing like the nostril ring.

I wonder what happened to have his tail replaced with a prothesis, or is it one of those things in an era of body modification (which it seems like in the digital age) where they replaced a part of thier body with a cybernetic replacement?

also, if they are that advanced to make things like that, then I'm sure they can find a way to make the prothesis light enough to be used in swimming.

Nauceans lay eggs. If they want to kill their unhatched kid, all they need to do is smash the egg. No need to spend hundreds of Naubucks to have someone do it for you.  ::)

i'd like to see more about what happened to the other races, like the small pygmy like race in the digital age or something like that.  The race that lived under the water in the modern age.  i'll also like to see more on the cities stuff..:-)


Well the jungle tribe (th pygmy race) was absorbed into slavery, this after the anti-slavery wars if they are in the River Tribe they would live just like them. Becuase they would be part of their society.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_mate.jpg)

Mating involves an impressive mating dance by the male. They bend forward and wave their tails in the air and open their pseudo-mandible wide showing off their oral tentacles. The tentacles glow when in rutting. For Nauceans females it is the tale fluke that is attractive. The larger the fluke the sexier the male. Also the brighter and more spectacular show with oral tentacles the more in the moodthe feamle will be. The wave these around while dancing around and making deep whale-like calls and squaks is quite impressive.

 In the males do not have a phallus, sperm is stored in the seminal glomera within the cloacal protuberance prior to copulation. During copulation, the female moves her tail to the side and the male mounts the female from behind, or moves very close to her. The cloaca's then touch, so that the sperm can enter the female's reproductive tract. The cloaca is a multipurpose organ used for sexual reproduction, urination and deification like Earth birds and some reptiles & amphibians have. Males may extend theirs like a penis while females can invert it. Since this organ is the same in both but only females have ovaries and males have testis. Homosexual behavior is common. The only real external difference between males and females is that females are slightly larger in general. Both have the capacity to make their tentacles glow and either invert or extent their cloaca. In short the act of matting can be done by either really. But only a male and female can produce offspring.

ROFL that is preaty funny though. Its ok. But really the only reason that homosexuality is coom is becuse there is not much diffrence in the sexes. Its not like they have mammaries or facial hair or othe rthings to distigunish. Just the slight size diffrence in their dimorphism.

Here is a River Tribe War Mech Suit during the Robotic Age. These were used against the robotic uprising which almost eliminated the Naucean Species. Mechs are not new. They were first made during the Digital Age for construction and for missions on the moons, Serina and Sina. By the Biotech Age it was used in war against the Desert Tribe and to other maned missions to the neighboring planets Whrio and Oro.

The Robotic Age War Mech is equipped with 3 rotating lazier cannons and a huge anti-matter cannon which comes out the "tail". This is very powerful and one of the main factors which one the war against the Robots. As for armor the whole structure is made amazing new alloys which were woven on the nano level. These are the precursor to the Nano Age where everything was quantum progamed rather than built. Also there are energy shields which fight against energy weapons such as lasers. The front arms are left overs from the construction days but have actually become quite useful in battle because it can move thing as well and throw things and cut up infantry androids with their microsharped talons.

Here is a Desert Tribe Dune Gobblehorn Rider. Like the Mountain tribe the Desert tribe ride gobblehorns too. Except rather than a large woolly version they ride a thin and hairless desert variety. They tried lystrophants but found they are too much for the arid environment. The Dune Gobblehorn have curled horns like a ram and have HUGE waddles in which store fat in the same way an Earth's camel stores fat for the desert. They use these for their caravans in which stretch as far South as the Jungle Tribe, as far north as the Mountain tribe, as far West as the Grassland Tribe and as Far East as the River Tribe.

Keep up the great work...

Also will there be any changes to how the Nauceans look after each generation? Like will they have four legs instead of two after a certain amount of generations?

*They look abit like Velociraptors without the front arms and the deadly sharp teeth*

*IDEA* Going to watch dinosaur video's and combine dinosaurs to make a creature :D*

Not quite the only differences by tribal stage are minor racial/breeds. The Desert tribe is the most extreme with a tall nostril crest, purple skin and more rough skin. If you look in like the early pages you can see the difference between the diffrent tribes. As for limbs, nope! No more changes major parts after tribal stage.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_instruments.jpg)

Here are some Naucean Instruments. The Naucean Horn may be familiar but the rest may be new to you. The Naucean harp is a combination of a harp and string base. It can change its pitch greatly by tightening or loosening the strings and is amplified by the hollow inside. The Fluke Drum is played by hitting it with their tali flukes. They come in many sizes and are some times filled with water and make much diffrent sounds when that happends. The Rain Shaker is made from a spike gourd plant. It is filled with sand or seeds and is shaken like a maraca or rain stick. Lastly the Wind Whip is actually an instrument. It is used by swinging it around. The swinging of the balls on the rope make diffrent pitch sounds based on the rope length. Also the balls on the end have holes in them which also make nose because each has a diffrent size ball. These whistle while the rope hums. It can also be used like a whip and make a cracking sound. These are all instruments mainly used by the River Tribe.

also, wouldn't they have bunkers or something in the Atomic age? because if I remember right, that animation of the world population through time (which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore since I tried to find it, but only found a broken image) showed that there was a sudden decrease in population at that time which I think an atomic war happened.

Here is a timeline with dates, finally. I have been trying to figure this out for a long time. Also it shows what stage they are in the game. The dates are since they became th final species. I will fill them in with some brief summaries of each age later. Sorry no picture.

Tribal Stage
Prehistoric – 0 to 500,000 (500,000 years long)
Stone Age – 500,000 to 550,000 (50,000 years long)
Copper Age – 550,000 to 555,000 (5,000 years long)
Bronze Age – 555,000 to 557,500 (2,500 years long)

Since my grandma died yesterday (Monday March 20th, 2006) I though i should dedicate this drawing to her. I have not talked much about Naucean death. So i thought this was a fitting time.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_grave.jpg)

River Nauceans worship Nauceanica the Nature Goddess and water is accosted with her. Since they believe the planet itsself is made of Nauceans they bury their dead in burrial mounds. The casket is a sphere shape. This represent the perfect shape, which they believe is water droplets, planets, etc. Also it represents them passing to the next life. Since they are born in eggs these caskets are the eggs for their next life. So when put inside they are put in the same postion that babies are born in. On the out side is the symbol of Nauceanica which like shown has the 2 moons spheres on the bottom, on top are the 2 suns and in the middle the balance off good and evil. This is how Nauceanica is viewed normally (like Jesus is genrally viewed on a cross). Also on the outside of the spherical casket is the name of the individual in gold, as well as spirals representing the vortexes of water and galaxy. In short they believe they pass on to space and live in a heavenly ocean in the stars. Once buried they bless the site with holy water, place the symbol of Nauceanica on top and leave Red Olivenuts.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_slave2.jpg)

Here is a Ocean Tribe Slave and his Master. The Ocean Tribe race is the largest of all Nauceans. Grassland Tribe may be a little taller but Ocean tribe had to be the strongest and most massive. The Desert Tribe height is about 3/4th the size of a River Tribe Naucean so these guys looked huge compared to them. Due to their primitive lifestyle they were easily captured and forced into Slaver by the Grassland, River, Mountain and Desert tribes. It was until later during the Anti-Slavery Age did this change. However during the whole war the Desert tribe allied with the Plantion and Slavery rebel tribe to fight against the allied Mountain, River and Grassland tribes. After the war even though the Ocean, Jungle and Swamp tribes were destroyed and taken over they still lived on within the population of each slave owning tribe.

Ocean Tribe unlike the Jungle tribe (shown before) were used for hard labor rather than picking Red Fang Berries. They were prefect for mining for precious ores. In the Desert Tribes land they had lots of silver mines and were used to get much of that. Since the desert stand were so hot and the Ocean tribe was adapted to the ocean rather than the desert many died in the head and had their "fleet" badly burnt and cut up. Some Ocean Nauceans said that those in the sun were the lucky ones because in the mines terrible cave in would crush many of them. Conditions for these slaves were some of the worst ever seen on the planet.

And thanks for giving us detailed star charts. Now finding them will be much easier for the Interstellar Union of Socialist Soviet Republics. The Nauceans shall embrace Socialism like so many races before them ...  ;)

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_drivein.jpg)

Here is a typical River Tribe drive in movie during the Modern Age. Like humans Nauceans's monsters look like them. In this movie it has their version of a vampire. The Naucean vampire has a sharp pseudo mandible which looks like a beak. Instead of glowing blue the Naucean's vampire has glowing red oral tentacles as well as 4 red glowing eyes. The skin is pale and dead just like our vampires. Their movie myth has it where they come out of their spherical casket and drink the blood of the living. Wen light comes they will turn to a jelly puddle. Naucean vampires cannot stand the smell of a turnabegga. Thus supersicious Nauceans keep on on their door as well as plenty of turnabegga ale at hand. Also if you hold up the sign of Nauceanica they will run away in fear she will turn them to liquid. Like our vampires they are also immortal and live in cold dark places. Thuscaves are where you would find the most powerful vampires, at least according to superstion. Sadly this superstion lead to the killing of many of the Cave Tribe, becuase they have red eyes and pale skin.

I wonder if perhaps there is any truth behind the Naucean vampire myth? Perhaps a tribe of Cave-Nauceans did drink blood of their victims in the night? Maybe as part of some sort of druidic blood-cult? And the stories of this ancient group lived on, and was later associated with all in the cave tribe?

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_months.jpg)

Here is how the months work. Each of the 8 months were named after one of the 8 tribes. You can see the coat of arms for each tribe which also doubles for the month's symbol. The year starts when the 2 suns line up in the sky during the winter. Middle Summer is when both suns are on either side of the planet and there is no night (only dusk between them). An the spring the Blue Sun is in the East and the Red Sun is in the West part of the sky. Durring the Fall the Red Sun is in the East and the Blue Sun is in the West. Although the Blue sun is not in the same soloar system it is still huge enough to impact the climate on the planet. It is also a special time when both suns and both moons line up on the first of the year. Durring this time they hold a huge celebration similar to Earth's Olympics where Nauceans compete in sports as well as have a grand feast, dance and music.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_utensils.jpg)

Here are Naucean Utensils and other cookware. Since Nauceans do not have teeth they use diffrent methods to eat food. Either Girding it up first with a meat grinder, or using chewing rings they wear on their oral tentacles by rubbing them together then sicking the squished and chewed meat in their beak. Or the one they used before even sentient, gizzard stones. Gizzard stone rub together in their stomach and grind up the food. They also have some unique utensils such as the "Sporife", which is a mixture of a spoon, fork and knife. However they are very long to reach to the mouth. Some familiar items are a ale bottles, bowl and cutting knife. They also have tea pots but they fill from the spout and spherical teacups too but fill them by screwing the top off. But one of the most weird items of all is the juice pan. The Juice pan is used by skewering a fruit on a pike on a dome on a pan. The juice drips down out of the fruit and the Naucean dip other food items in the juice or use straws to sip it out of the bottom. Lastly theire is the Naucean frying pan which is a mixture of a frying pan, wok and shish kabob.

anyway, I wonder if later when they developed more advanced technology they'd develop ways to have more efficient gizzard stones rather than the traditional rocks. Even if they can't produce gizzard stones much more efficient they can develop other materials for them, even in different styles maybe.

We really don't know anything about the sliders for sure, other than they exist, so the nauceans I'd say are maybe 75% peaceful, they don't like wars anymore in the galactic stage, but are perfectly capable of defending themselves when neccesary.

there are always the criminals, space pirates, etc though for all species, no matter how peaceful they might be.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/nazean.jpg)

Dr. Nauvorkean (the Naucean from the prison Escape Adventure) created many abominations by making alien hybrids. Due to the intergalactic law against Chimeras of sentient life Dr. Nauvorkean was sent to prison, but not before he creature his most prize creation, the "Nazean" !! The Nazean are a hybrid of the Naucean and Kazea. Due to this strange combination the are very unstable. Altohough they have 4 "fleet" and a fuzzy fin they are extremely afraid of water. Ironically they need water to keep their skin moist. You can see the many mixed and matched features of both. And each part works fine even if its not the most visually appealing.

Well in the beginning it was taboo. But once slavery came there were more mixing of the slave race and the owners race. Thus the most common were Ocean/Desert, Grassland/Jungle, River/Swamp and so on. By the time of the anti-slavery wars there were many more mixed races, except for the cave tribe. Since they were separated for so long they were looked down upon, especially by the Desert tribe. Which is why they eventually had a genocide plague to them with past sigmas about them being evil and even vampires by the extreme. In short by the time you get after the robot age there are no more cave tribe, but there are some traces of each tribe, though probably not as much desert tribe because they got killed first and were enemies with most of the other tribes for so long.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_king.jpg)

Here is the Emperor of the 3 Kingdoms during the Medieval Age. Durring this time there was  a short period in which the Emperor was able to unite the Mountain, Grassland and River tribe. This was to fight the desert  tribe and its fanatical ways. The Emperor was actually half river and half grassland by race and was married to the queen of the mountain tribe. Sadly after his death this empire fell. You cans see that his crown is golden with blue spahires and red rubies. These 2 gems were important because they represented the large blue sun and the small red sun. He wore many tentacle and tail rings as well as golden gauntlets. Even the "floots" had studded toes to them. In his hand was a golden scepter which was modeled after the stone age shaman staff. Around his neck is a royal neck poncho, in which was the only one made like this, because it had the river symbol on the top, grassland in the middle and mountain tribe on the bottom. Between them were golden threaded stripes. As emperor he lead the people into the Renaissance Age, but not before many bloody battles which eventually led to the uniting of the 3 kingdoms.

Durring the Nano Age the Robots finally uprise against the Nauceans. However The Nauceans are well equipped by this time. They have developed nano technology in which is used for just about everything. Forinstance in the picture it shows how it used as a second skin (a liquid-like material made with microscopic nano bots that form into diffrent shapes). This second skin protects the Nauceans from chemical, biologically and radiation. The skin filters out clean breathable air as well as allows for enhancer or deadened senses. It also works like an exo suit in which it enhances their strength. They can be programed to make diffrent shapes as well as even add additional limbs. As you can see done the spine it is making spiny blades. Each Naucean has a impant in which they can mentally be connected with this second skin. Unlike the robots its not sentent and works more like a part of the Naucean than a separate entity. The Nauceans themselves are genetically enhanced from birth and live much longer than before. Just about all natural disease have been cured. But alien or Naucean made biologicals still are a great threat.

Sorry i never herd of it but I did get the idea from a Gargoyles episode where they had a substance called an "organic matrix" (note this was before the maztix movies) which was acually the famoious gray goo that became sentient and merged with the villian turned good "Dingo".

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_school.jpg)

Here is a typical River Tribe Elementary School during the Modern age. Nauceans age similar to humans and during their adolescents have to go to school to learn. Durring this time they learn valuable information both academically and socially. It is encouraged for them to play, be creative and think for themselves. Nauceans have 3 schools during their life. Elementary school for the prepubescent Nauceans, High School for the teen age Nauceans and mandatory collage for the young adult Nauceans. Education is very important to Naucean society, especially for the River tribe. Nauceans parents tend to want them to become doctors, but all occupations are important to them. Nauceans also advance grade by their skill, not their age. If a Naucean cannot pass a grade they must stay until they finish. Due to the cultural influence each Naucean is greatly motivated to do the best they can and bring honor to their families. Those that drop out are frown upon by Naucean society and are sent to millitary school because education being mandatory.

Awesome pick and back round story,  do they learn anything different from what we learn at earth? Like are the kids much smarter than the kids here or anything?

Think of them having an education system like in modern Japan. Where every kid is pushed to do their best and get the best grades. This minds you put stress on the Naucean youth just like in Japan, but like Japan they do have many more brilliant minds this way.

If your hinting at what I think your hinting at... you dissapoint me.

If you are a student, your school probably has one (and depending on their policy, might allow you to borrow a copy), or just get a substantial education discount from Macromedia.

Besides, flash is not neccessary to make this stuff... you could probably find some freeware on the web, easy. Or much cheaper movie-making software at a Best Buy or somthing. There is no need for Flash to do this kind of stuff. And certainly no need for piracy (which, if discussed and supported on these boards, could spell signifigant legal trouble for Steve. So, at least for his sake, don't do it.)

Flash cant do video editing. It does animation.... I supposed if you drew everything in flash you could make something along these lines (and you could use shapetween to do a simmaler morph effect, but that tends to look bad unless you set a bunch of "morph points"), but you wouldnt really be able to morph sketches/pictures/etc unless you traced them, nor would you be able to edit any sort of video file, just mabye add some video to the animation.

But you could defently do something simmaler to this, defently a slideshow of pictures, and animation if you know how to use flash.


And by the way, nice work Hydro.
Truthfully I probably wouldnt of given this creature much of a second glance if it was just a couple pictures; but the fact that you've put so much effort into this, and have produced so many pictures, really is impressive.

I know the least possible someone can know about animating stuff. As for the legal junk....I had absolutely no clue about that.

Sorry!

I see you've put alot of thought and effort into this, especially the River Tribe (favouritism :P). I was just wondering if you could expand on the Desert Tribe, they are my favourite out of all the tribes and I would really like to know some more about them.

Durring the Atomic War many Nauceans died and many young Nauceans were orphaned. So many were orphaned by all of the waring tribes that many were left at the cave opening of the Cave Tribe, since at this time they were separate from the rest of the world. This desperation despite the tabboo actually allowed the Cave tribe to jump start themselves into the Modern Age. Infact the only tribe that did not do this was the desert tribe because of their strong hatred towards the cave tribe and their believe they were vampires. In the picture you can see a young little girl Naucean with her dolly morning over the passing of her mother. Durring this time there were so many dead that proper burrial was not performed because there were not enough supplies to make a casket.

Watch the google video. It shows the map before and then after. In short alot. I am horrible at numbers so i'll just say over half the population. Also if ya notice I rarly give an exact number wth things. I put off the years for awhile but fianlly did enough reserach to figure out how long diffrent perionds would last. Anywho yeah its fuzzy numbers with me, so just know it is alot, more than the Genoside Plague but less than when the robots take over.

The way that you keep adding new and original content just inspires me (And I also been considering creating a new creature mainly because I see how great it could be by looking at your works).

I wanted to ask you (And I hope you didn't answer it before): What about a law system? Do the Nauceans has judges and law enforcments? is there alot of crime or are most of them are good citizens? What sort of laws do they have? Etc...

Any way, keep up the good work!

Here is  an overview of Naucean Media Storage systems.

Preshistoric - Oral History

Stone Age - Carving in half sphere stones.

Copper Age - Carving in half sphere wood.

Bronze Age - Carving in half sphere pottery.

Iron Age - Carving in half sphere metal such as copper, iron, tin, silver and gold.

Medieval Age - Carving in 2 half sphere metal with a chain connecting them.

Renaissance Age - Carving in 2 half sphere metal with a chain connecting them and metal pages between that opens up like an accordion.

Exploration Age - Accordion-like book but written on with ink and paper using an ink pen.

Industrial Age - Accordion-like book but printed on with ink and paper using a printing press rather than a pen.

Flight Age - Accordion-like book but printed with ink on glass and rubber so it would last longer than paper.

Anti-Slavery Age - Mechanical Accordion-like book which used you wind and it will bring out each page to view rather than flipping through.

Atomic Age - Radio was which ran on electricity and transmitted via antenna.

Rocket Age - Television was which ran on electricity and connected via cables.

Modern Age - Computer was which ran on electricity and connected via cables (with Internet) and satellite.

Digital Age - Holo Sphere with Wireless Internet.

Biotech Age - Neural Up link (similar to the Matrix) with Wireless Internet.

Robotic Age - Neural Implant which allows for the same as neural up link but no more plugging in.

Nano Age - Nano second Skin which works with the Neural Implant and is symbiotic to Nauceans.

Galactic Exploration Age - Quantum Computers Work with the neural Implant and Nano Second Skin to transmit anywhere in the galaxy.

Universal Age - Complete Ascension where technology, biology and sprilturality merge to where they can communicate anywhere in the universe at any time period, which is important for time travel.

In Ascension Age they have time-travel... do they use it to influence Naucean (or for that matter any) history, or is it only to observe the past? Or a little bit of both?

In their super-advanced state, do some Nauceans set themselves up as gods over primitive worlds (either for worship or uplift purposes?).

They have found out they can't effect their own timeline. But can effect other time line in paralle universes. And they have strict rules about effecting the past, though some rogue Nuaceans have broken the rules over the ages. These same types of Nauceans also fancy themselves as Gods over primitive worlds. Infract one is doing so in one of the other creatures on this forums (not the Kazea ;) BTW).


BTW, how is Kazean and Naucean pronouced? I allways thought Naucean was pronouce "New-Con" but know it looks like "New-Se-En".

I belive i have said this before ...

I could be wrong 'cause I don't know the actual pronounciation of the words, but other than spelling there isn't enough similarity between the two names to cause confusion. Naucean I've thought of as being "now see un", and this new one I read as "na she un". I guess there's similarity there too, but still don't think it'd warrant a name change.


Naucean  is pronounced the same way your pronounce Nautilus (Not-L-Es) and Cetacean (Si-Ta-Shen). Thus Naucean (Naw-Shen). Which also sounds like "Nausea", which is a pun to all the oral tentacles comming out and looking like it is vomiting.

Nauceans have explored much of the galaxy during their Universal Age. One planet they especially liked was a little planet that was 3rd from their yellow star. They liked this planet because it was full of huge oceans. They took many animals from the ocean planet to study but one Nauceans scientist decided to say and study an isolated tribe of humans. This scientist was called Kanaloa by the tribe he studied. It is not surprising that he became a god to them. While there he set up an underwater base off the coast of the island chain. He learned the culture though a young human girl. Through her she was the mediator and actually learned how to speak Naucean. Durring his stay he taught her medicine in which they thought was lealing magic. Before he left he gave her this healing device which was named the "Eye of Kanaloa". This divice channels ones "ki" which is the healing quantum force that exist throughout the universe. This tradition was passed down from generation to generation of priests. Long after he left this tradition was kept alive and he turned into a legend. The humans called him a sea god, healer, teacher of magic and even underworld god due to him dissapearing into the depths of the ocean.

Here is a River Tribe Police Officer from the Modern Age. They wear a protective helm with a badge on it, protective Kevlar suit, radio with microphone, river tribe poncho, protective "floots", hand gun and is holding up his badge. By his side is a special breed of police Flowit. They a much more muscular than the first domesticated version. Their jaws are very strong for their size and they can take down even the largest Naucean criminals. Like on Earth Naucean Police keep the peace and airest criminals. The ride around is blue and gold bubble cars that flash blue and gold lights on top. Police are looked up to in the community and many young Nauceans want to be one when they grow up.

Durring the Biotech Age there were many advances in medicine, microbiology, genetics and of course cloning! The first preshistoric creature to be brought back from extinction was the mighty "T-Boon"! The T-Boon was a huge hairy monkey-like creature who lived on the planet while the Naucean was still swimming around in the ocean as aquatic whale-like creatures. This age was known as the "Age of Giant Monkeys" This was just the largest of the many monkey-like creature who roamed the planet during that time. Like Earth's t-rex it ate meat, walked on 2 legs and had huge jaws. Durring the Biotech Age T-Boons and other resurrected creature from the past were all the rage in what was known as "Prehistoric Zoos".

Here is a Desert Tribe Blood Priest. The Desert Tribe do not worship Nauceanica and the Hydromancy religion, but Worship "Au" the Sun god. He is represented as the red Dwarf in which the planet Nauceanica revolves around. The Desert Tribe believes that Au made all things, even Nauceanica and is more powerful than she is. They have taken the traditional hydromancy traditions of water and altered it to their own ideas. Since water is precious in the desert it cannot be waisted in such ceremonies so they developed a system of Nacuean sacrifices and use the blood of their enemies for ritual sacrifice. As you can see the Blood Priest is holding up the skull of a killed River Tribe Naucean and is pouring its own blood out of a tea pot so it can be given as tribute to the sun God Au. He also has in his tentacle a rain shaker (shown in the instrument drawing). This shaking of the rain shaker make sure that the rains come bring water back to the desert to drink. On the body of the Blood priest are many piercings. He has some on this nostril frill, on his tail fluke and even down the spine. As the priest gain higher and higher rank they add more piercings. The more pain and suffering you go though for Au the more holy you become. On the size is a tattoo of the inner soloar system and you can see he has braided his lower oral tentacles to resemble an Egyptian goatee. Lastly the red neck poncho and boots are soaked in enemy Naucean blood after each ceremony. Thus they get bloodier and bloodier each time they perform a ceremony. These sacrifices must be done often, especially during the dry season or Au may get mad and never bring the rain back. In short to maintain this tradition the Desert tribe are constantly at war with the River, Grassland, Mountain and Jungle Tribes.

Seeing as they're pretty similar in some aspects to the Maya/Inca/Aztek(I forget which is which), you'd think their civilization would be pretty short-lived. Love the picture though, and the description.  :)

Aztec, and they last until the Robotic Age. Rember these are the smae guys who kill of the Cave tribe witht eh Genoside plague. Also think of their culture as a mixture of the Aztec, Egyptian and Arabian.

In the same way both relgions belive Nauceanica the Watergodess is the planet this group belives Au is the red dwarf sun itself. Yes they have a sun temple in which they use when both suns like up becuase the red sun is in front of the blue sun when they line up. Thus the sky turns red durring this time.

They evolved that way very early on. Thus most creatures on the planet have 4 eyes, 4 legs, bilateral and a majority have a beak, 2nd mouth oevr the beak and even 6 tentiles on either side of the beak.

Ok, ok, but is it in order to have an improved vision? cause their sun is weak and they can't get all the light they need to see? a pair of eyes are normal and the other are for infrared? just because they look cool? they have eyes but they are really blind? ...?
This is what i mean.

Or maybe "there's no explanation".

The larger back pair see as we do in R,O,Y,G, B, I, V while the smaller front eyes see in only infrared.

Also Plz do not double post. Plz detle the 2nd one and add to the first one.

EDIT: The Cave tribe are blind in their main eyes and see in the darkness with their infrared eyes.

Here is a River Tribe Ball Turret Wheel Tank used during the Atomic War. These were painted with desert cammo so when not moving it could hide from the Desert Tribe. These wheel could move over sand dunes with eases and reverse direction quickly. Like a Earth wheel bike the outside wheel spins while the internal wheel stays stable. This movement works like a gyro scope. Inside is a ball turret similar to the ball gun turrets used on the bottom of World War II air craft. These can turn 360 degrees around as well and rotative up and down and diagonal. The only way it cannot move is completly over the top because of the guns. Gunner of these were very accurate and it had a fail safe system in which if the gun was behind the wheel it would not fire. Once it cleared it it could continue.The cockpit holds 2 Nauceans side by side one looks out the window and shoots while the pilot reads the controls with a primitive view screen. This was the first use of any sort of screen since televesion was not invented yet. The displace showed a black and white image from 4 cameras that were positions on either side of the conical coll um that held the sphere in place. This part never moved thus 2 faced forward and 2 backwards once they were traveling in reverse. If the wheel fell over to one side to the other for any reason hydrolic lifts on the wheel part will pop it back up. The Wheel tank was not only very fast and could go on any terrain but was actually well armored. everything from the treads to the ball turret its self was heavily armored. Since they did not have brakes they had to use reverse to get it to a stop. The plots of these were called "Blind Tornados" because of all the sand it kicked up and how most had to use their other instruments rather than the cameras to even know where they were going.

These were made for desert battle against the Desert tribe. There is not much mud. However they are venerable to mud and quicksand. The desert tribe took advantage of this weakness and set up quicksand traps for them.  ;)

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_spacecraft.jpg)

Atomic Age - The 1st Satelite was launched at the end of the atomic age thus dawning the space age. This first satelite was known as Po after the myth and the farthest planet in the soloar system. In Naucean mythology Po was Sina's (The Goddess Nauceania's Youngest Daughter) pet flowit. Sina threw a rock deep into the galactic ocean and Po went out to get it. But the current was too strong and he could not return. Thus thats is why the planet Po is so far away from the planet.

Rocket Age - Stage Rocket. This has 4 stage that broke off and the conical capsule at the top could fly around like a primitive shuttle. They used these to build the first space stations.

Modern Age - Space Shuttle on a Rocket. This has rocket boosters to get up into space and then flew around like Earths shuttles. Thenwhen they had to come back they would glide down unlike before where it would just fall down and land in the ocean. These were the first to visit Sina and Sirenia.

Digital Age - These could take off from spaceports and visit space stations, moon bases and even the first piloted missions to Whiro and Oro.

Biotech Age - These were used to visit and establish colonies around the soloar system. The first bases were military only and did not become domestic until after the Robot War.

Robotic Age - These were the first true UFOs and were used for battling against the Robotic uprising. They had anti-gravity, beam technology and even the first primitive terraforming.

Nano Age - These ultimately won the war against the Robotic uprising. thanks to nano technology they gave an advantage over the Robots. It against many new features like cloaking, anti-matter cannon, adaptive nano systems, cold fussion, and even the first pre-interseller drive which made travel around the soloar system take just a few mins.

Galactic Exploration Age - This was the biggest step with the interseller drive and the "planet killer" weapon. These were used to explore the closest stars and many new alien species.

Universal Age - This godly craft runs on zero point energy and can travel in time, dimensions, and universes. This was eventually created after having worked with alien species and sharing technology and information.

On a side note the Nauceans are in the Galactic Exploration Age currently with CAB.

Naucean  is pronounced the same way your pronounce Nautilus (Not-L-Es) and Cetacean (Si-Ta-Shen). Thus Naucean (Naw-Shen). Which also sounds like "Nausea", which is a pun to all the oral tentacles comming out and looking like it is vomiting.

Here is a Mother Sphere from the Galactic Exploration Age. These were used because it was to far to travel back and forth from the planet. It is about the size of larger moon Serina. These also have a space bending drive in which it folds space and makes a wormhole in with it pops through. It worth with one drive on the top and one on the bottom and putting them around the sphere until it is in the new spot and returns the space. This technology will be key to travel in time during the Universal age but they must discover zero point energy before doing that. On the outside of there sphere it is covered with a nano skin in which it sues to protect itself and defend its self. Around the equator of the sphere are the hanger bays in which sphere fighter UFOs come out ( see the green dots all around). Also on the sides are manipulator nodes. These can change function due to the nano technology. They can be used a a beam nozzle, force field generator, anti-matter cannon or even planet creation tools.

The reason its so old is becuase i have posted info about them for so long. I would think the Kazea would come out 2nd in the time scale. Sicne Huggs has been around for a long time too as well as continual work.

i think huggs considers the kazeans mildly young in the galactic timescale, since he does them mainly chronological and whatnot...and so that means my torpal would be mildly near-ancient too, right? ;D

while I have said that my caarnth are in theory ancient (they where in space millions of years ago), they are fairly young in actual age (they spent allot of that time in cryogenic hibernation), they just have impressive technology because they are better at understanding precursor technolog - for obvious reasons, they knew many of these races before the hibernation and before those races became all powerful, I'm saying this so no one accuses me of trying to make the so-called ancient super race

Oy i have no idea. I am terrible at exact numbers. I just made it as big as the 2 moons of the Nuacean homeworld. Also both (so far) are the same size as each. So i would say  the big moon is about the size of Earth's moon and the other is 2/3rds the size of the other one. So find the diameter of Earth moon and then you will know how big the Mother Spheres in short.

Earth's Moon Size = Mother Sphere - Serina
2/3rd the Size of Earth's Moon = Mother Sphere - Sina

I hope this helps cause i look at thing relative to other thing, rather than the numerical size.

EDIT: The moon's Diameter is 3,476 KM

So i would say the Mother Sphere - Serina's diameter is aprox 3,500 KM

Oh man, the biggest ships in the Icthian fleet are only about 400 metres long. The fighters, about 7 or 8.

I suppose we're the swarm of bees to your elephants.

Calculations:

Volume of a Naucean Mother Sphere: Approximately 22500000000000000000 cubic metres

Being exceptionally generous, and assuming an overall density of 0.1 g/cm3 (for comparison, water is 1 and air is 0.12), this comes out at about

2.25 × 1018 tonnes

That's enough to cause severe problems to any planet it orbits, in terms of tidal forces.

Wow, and the energy output required to nullify that amount of force? I wouldn't even want to start calculating that.

Force = G x Mass1 x Mass2 / Distance2

The mass of the Planet we can assume to be that of the Earth - 5.97 × 1021 tonnes
The mass of the ship we know to be 2.25 × 1018 tonnes
Geostationary orbit is about 38 km.
G is of course 6.67 x 10-11 N m2/kg2

Mass1 * Mass2 = 1.344195 × 1043 kilograms
divide this by 3800 metres squared and multiply it by G, gives you a total force of 6.21 × 1025 N just to hold the thing where it is.

Correct my maths if it's wrong, please.

I would never dream about questioning your calculations but remember the energy needed to warp gravity and space into a wormhole is nearly infinitely more energy consuming than just nullifying its oven gravitational pull. i would suspect that the Nauceans only use this Wormhole drive when traveling over LONG distances.

I must admit it pussels me that the Nauceans have more of these ships since the financial stress of having a fleet of ships that makes the Death Star look small and unimportant must be extreme.

but then again; they ARE the Nauceans.   ;D

Its a good thing they can fold space and appear where they need to be. Also remember this is based on the game. Not everything is realistic now :P Remember is the fun factor vs reality. Like will Wright said for Sim City's Nuclear Power Plant, they don't blow up in a mushroom cloud and have glowing green radiation but people assumed that. I mean even Trenoble did not blow up like that and there was defiantly now glowing green radiation ... just normal invisible(from the naked eye) radiation.

The Swamp Tribe is one of the more primitive tribes. They live in mud homes and are dirty all the time. They only get to the bronze age before being captured and put into slavery by the River, Desert, Grasslands and Mountain Tribes during their Exploration Age. Eventually after the Anti-Slavery War the Swamp Tribe race are all but assimilated into the various other tribes as mixed bloods. It is rare to find a pure blood swamp tribe. However (especially in the river tribe) you may see Nauceans with the swamp tribes signature shovel-like pseudo-mandible or a smaller stubby tail and rounded flippers. They are about the size of a Desert tribe (2/3rd River Tribe, 1/2 Ocean Tribe size). In the picture you can see a hunter covered in mud with a Swamp flowit. These flowits have huge webbed feet so it can stand on the top of the muddy surface. Also their tails have flattened like a long beaver tail. Their snouts have also gotten longer in case they sink in the mud they can lift their heads and breathe. Over all the Swamp tribe are just a strong, stout and muddy tribe who are one of the hartyest tribes of all the Nauceans to survive for so long in an environment with no solid land and no clean water.

Here is  part of the Naucean Pantheon. In the center is of Course the creator goddess Nauceanica who is said to make everything in the Universal Sea. The top left is Au Nauceanica's Bother who is said to have existed then Nauceanica made everything, though some say she even made him, while the Desert Tribe believe that it was Au who made everything not Nauceanica. Many religious wars have been over this issue of who created who. To the to right is Aohshi is is also Nauceanica's brother and also existed during the beginning of time. But unlike Au no one believes he many the universe but they do believe he is the protector of it. Since Nauceans have more than one child (usually 2 or 3) they believe they were all born in the same cosmic clutch by an unknown egg layer. Basically which came first the Naucean or the Egg problem. Au is represented by the Red Dwarf Sun (by the same name) that the planet Nauceanica orbits around. And Aohoshi is represented by the neighboring solar system's Blue Super Giant Star (by the same name). The reason he is the protector is because the huge star divers many large objects to its solar system rather that the Naucean's one.

 In Naucenica's hands he holds out good and evil, light and dark and the poloar opposites. Her task is to balance these two forces. In her lower oral tentacles she holds her 2 daughters Serina and Sina which are represented by the 2 moons that orbit the planet Nauceanica (by the same names). Serina is tall and large just like the moon and is outgoing. This is manifested though the huge tidal forces it creates. Sina is small and short just like the moon and is shy. This is manifested by how little her tidal effects are compared to Serina. Sina's pet flowit is named Po. Po eventually got separated from her and exists at the edge of the solar system. In reality the Planet Po is glorified commet that ran into Sina and then bounced off and eventually was captured at the edge of the solar system. The crater from this on sina is huge and is called "Po's Bite". This incident also moved Sina's orbit from closer to the planet than Serina to farther away than Serina. In mythology they believe she is father out because she is reach out for Po to come back.

There is the Naucean Sphere Runner (350 m). They were used to run cargo and Nauceans between solar systems. This is the smallest craft with interstellar drive. Basically its a Naucean Sphere Fighter with 5 interstellar drive rockets. This craft is not the most protected and only has the weaponry of any fighter. It may be faster it is not made to be a fighting craft. It great for a quick get away when you don't have a space folding mother sphere around.

There you go Hydro, my version of your Naucean. I thought some stripes gave it a nice touch, not sure if that would defile your creature. I must say that after drawing it, I thought it was the most beautiful creature I have ever seen. I would petition God to create such a creature. :P :D

Nope :D But but that early popularity spurred me to make more drawings. Thus it became more popular and even more detailed. So in a sense it never would have gotten to detailed if not for the communites intrest into it. So thanks you guys for making me want to do more. :D

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_ironlongbow.jpg)

Here is a River Tribe Double Bladed Longbow Archer during the Iron Age. Even though the Double Bladed Longbow was made during the Bronze Age the Iron version was much stronger in hand to hand battle.Unlike say a Quill Sword Warrior the Archers wore much less armor and just had padded armor and an iron helm. Durring battle archers were known to retreat to the water if their double bladed fighting failed. They would drop their bows and helm and swim away. This may seem stupid but heavily armored Nauceans cannot swim thus they can fight another day. Many Nauceans obtained their weapons through this method. Normally they did not have to retreat and were perched atop stone river towers far up where they could not be reached. Their range was about the length of an Earth Longbow even though they were bigger. But they went shorter because they could not best as much with blades on them. Infact they were quite dangerous cause if they did not shoot you full of arrows then they might just cut off a tentacle or 2. Durring this age it was common for Many Naucean if they had not died in battle to come back missing some tentacles and even in some cases missing a floot. Sadly cutting of a head or tail was a bit to much to recover from.

If I have access to the internet when I finally get Spore, I'll be sure and check the content downloading thing for Naucean stuff, and give them a very nice planet, assuming I don't run into them first.

Flamemane is a gentle dragon with a sense of honor and pride. He has never met another Magi dragon in his entire life, not even his children are Magi dragons. His parents were Livinaa Heath the Magi dragon and Argent Heath the white dragon. He has five eggs laid from his mates. Sadly two have died from lack of warm. Out of the other three, only two have names. Icemard the winter dragon and Silver Giant the stone dragon. The last dragon (stone) escaped her keeper and ran into the wilderness unnamed. Flamemane oldest and dearest friend was his keeper Grazony. Grazony told Flamemane that the other dragons that hatched when he did were his brothers and his sister. Giving off a small laugh Grazony as he began to draw in a scroll. Grazony then gave Flamemane the scroll, which had drawings of his brothers, Sir Shield and Dark One, and his sister Fotosysthesis. Grazony seeing confusion on the dragon’s bright orange face explained that he, Flamemane, would be the holder of his keepers scroll. It has been years since then and the original keeper Grazony has died, but Flamemane still keeps that scroll. Flamemane has also kept record of the other dragons that enter into the cave, be they hatchling or egg. In addition, every time he enters a new dragon or egg into the scroll, Flamemane gives a little laugh. Just like his keeper did so long ago.

Yes, they have 2 so far one belive Nauceanica is the True god while the other belives Au is. The River Tribe Belives in Nauceanica while the Desert Tribe belives in Au. I have not figured out the other ones though.

They are dependent upon technology. Without it they are acually a weak species.

A message from Alimar:

The Icthian Space Fleet would like to request the assistance of the Nauceans in the rebuilding of the ships of the Icthian fleet; we are specifically interested in the use of nanotechnology in self-repairing armour. Though there seems to us very little that we could offer that you might want in return, we would be happy to provide what we can if you were to agree to help us.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_farmer.jpg)

Here is a Naucean Farmer during the Exploration Age. Due to the improvements from Iron to steel the quill scythe was able to be used. Steel was string enough to withstand the rigors of slicing the crops down better than the quill sword ever was. They collect the sliced crops by putting them in woven sphere baskets which hug over each side of their bodies and was held closed with iron clips. After harvesting they were taken to the water mills in which the plants were ground down and made into bread to eat. The River Tribe produced the most bread of any reason because of the use of water mills. Durring plowing the fields they would use lystropahnts to pull tillers and then drop in seeds by hand.

Here is a dome tank from the later anti-slavery age. It was the one of the first tanks ever used and was the first military vehicle equipped with radio thus catapulting it into the Atomic Age. Un-Like the River Tribes Wheel Tank in the Atomic Age the Grassland Tribe's Dome tank had many wheels and was equipped with many cannons. These are reminiscent of the Flight Age. It was powered by one of the fist combustion engines. This was revolutionary since before this everything was steam powered. The tank was run by 1 Naucean driver and 4 cannoneres (one for each directional  side). These Nauceans got so good at reloading that they were nicked named the "Iron Tentacles". The driver sat up top  while the cannoners were at the bottom. These were virtually impenetrable from riffle, cannon and even calvary attacks. Only air bombing was their weakness, but even then they stood up to alot of punishment.

From where then (is maby said in the past, but I dont have time to look)?

Thank you Caltrop for showing him. Also Maskineiet if you don't have time for a billion pages on here then you should visit Spore Wiki where it is all in chronological order and in 8 nice sections so you can find whatever question you have about them quickly. Because i have some so much it might be answered already.

You should probably link the Sporewiki page to your first post...

Also, can we see some theatre yet?  :P

Done/Fixed for the front post and theater i will get to eventually. I still have Naucean Marching Band to color today that i drew yesterday.

I finally finished it. Been toying with this fanart piece for awhile. Originally I had only done a head shot, but that didn't do Hydro's design justice, so I bit the bullet and did a full body shot.

~awesomepiccy~

Heh, wow, nice.

That reminds me, hydro, I did a drawing of a random Naucean a week or so ago, never scanned it, but could I scan it, colour it and post it as fanart or something? Just to give me somet else to do :D

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_marchingband.jpg)

Here is a River Tribe Marching Band during the Modern Age. They celebrate the end of the Anti-Slavery War which lasted from the Anti-Slavery Age through the Atomic Age. It honors though who died fighting as well as the many innocents. In the parade many war veterins ride around in convertable bubble cars. This band in particular is from the local high school and is complete with Nauceans Horns (back), Drums (back middle), Naucean Harps (front middle), and Rain Shakers (front). Also leading them is the drum major with his decorated mace. This parade is held every year down the main street of the capital city of the River Tribe.

It looks good! The only nitpick i would say is that 2 tentacles are missing. they have 6 (4 normal and 2 with hands).

Oh and i don't use water colors. I just under color using my pencil drawing layer on top and using the multiply feature in Photoshop on the player so its like a coloring book.

Well they do until the Renaissances. Gunpowder made heavily armored lystrophants slow and easy to take down with cannons and riffels. Sure they helped pull the cannons but they were not use as tanks. Also real tanks eventually took over.

Here are some quick walk cycles for class. I am having a short animation with a caveman and a Naucean. These are just to practice to get read. The assignment was to make them have a walk cycle with emotion. So the caveman is sneaking while the Naucean is sad. I like the caveman but not so much the Naucean. I was not going to post these but Areku liked them and said i should despite me thinking they are crappy looking.

The animation I made is 40 frames total. And no, I don't animate each and every individual frame. Thats the beauty of Flash and Motion Tweening. You place that object in frame 1, insert a motion tween, go to frame (oh, lets say) 10 and change an objects position, size, skew it, whatever and voala the program figures out the frames in between. I increased the FPS from 20 to 35, check it out. (http://media.putfile.com/nauceanWalk-87)

Hydro, with the sad walking naucean, I gotta say fix the tenticles! They just snap from place to place when they need to be more fluid-y, also with his arms dragging on the floor, try and make them allways touch at the same height on the ground - I'd say look at where the right foot is when its on the ground and the left foot when on the ground (the way he's facing, the left should be slightly heigher) and try to get them somewhere inbetween...

Also, try and get the loop to go back as close to the first frame as possible - the tail rocks but snaps up on what I assume is the last frame - and allways remember dimensions when drawing (the nauceans hip seems to move all over the place and he changes jean size every other frame :D) His head rocks though and the cave-man is good - I can tell you useda skelital structure for him, try and do that with the naucean too =D

Otherwise, you'r definatly getting better *nod*

Devart ~ naucean skelital animation (http://www.deviantart.com/view/34176008/)

It uses frame-by-frame animation, but using pre-made parts. I don't use tweening much any more, but on a side note - remember that animator i suggested a while back, well that would use tweening :D

Front view only looks goot in parallel (mittle) and ugly in perspective(left). Still many spiky roundings found after mirrorin the body half (arrows).
Nauceans have an awfull field of view, efen with a small head! This seems to proof that the front end of the head is not wider than the midle, only higher.

It uses frame-by-frame animation, but using pre-made parts. I don't use tweening much any more, but on a side note - remember that animator i suggested a while back, well that would use tweening :D

You forgot a joint. The have a tucked in joint on the tip of their foot so it can extend out like a flipper. You should be looking at my skelleton again.

It's just a basic stick figure like a stick-man, not *every* bone will be there, and it'd animate just fine without it :D

Actually, I tryed making the walking animation move over distance, it actually works quite well...

Finished the head to check proportions after mirroring a half head.

Front view only looks goot in parallel (mittle) and ugly in perspective(left). Still many spiky roundings found after mirrorin the body half (arrows).
Nauceans have an awfull field of view, efen with a small head! This seems to proof that the front end of the head is not wider than the midle, only higher.

This looked good. And no they don't have the best forward vision. But they can see on either side well.

Well that was an important part in the walk cycle. for instance in my normal walk cycle it come all the way out into the extenced flipper and then goes back. Think of the "floot" as being a stretchy sack in which the bones and mucles inside can deform the foot into a cone or a flipper.

Why would it come out to a flipper, exactly? It has to be move forwards and liftend off the ground - it was hard enough trying to get it off the ground enough to swing whilst keeping the bones the same length as it is. The way I see it, if they put their feet out into a full cone during swing, the feet would have to swing outwards...

Starving thin bottom, rubber-legs and back of the head needs more work.

Also how do I prevent objects, helper points and loft shapes from rotating around the path-line they are assigned to in bends
ah found it. "allow upside down". ah no, now the whole thing flips around while changing the lines shape, thats worse.

It looks good except I think the legs are angles to much into the body. What i mean is the tiny calf mucles ( the horizontal part in the middle) angle themselves to much. They should be more parrelle. Also the hips should be wilder so the belly is not so thin.

The gray line means they stayed at that level of technology. Thus like the jungle and swamp made it to copper age but stayed that way through out the other tribes ages until the Exploration age in which they jumped in technology. In short before they were just tribal stage but then once taken into slavery they jumped to city stage.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_aucity.jpg)

Here is Au City at 558,500 A.S (after sentience). Durring this time the Desert Tribe is fighting the the Northern Tribes (Grassland, River)  over religious differences. The Desert Tribe believe in Au the Red Sun god is the Creator over everything while the River and Grassland believe in Nauceanica the Goddess of the planet creating everything. To top it all off the Mountain tribe believe that Aohoshi the Blue Sun God is the main Creator of all. To appease Au they developed a system of Nacuean sacrifices and use the blood of their enemies for ritual sacrifice. These "Blood Priest" were Central to the culture and a large tower with a sphere on top (as seen at the upper right in the picture).

The city of Au was on either side of the Blood River. It gets this name because at the Summer Solstice the Blue Giant Star hides behind the red dwarf sun and turns the sky red all day and reflect upon the river turning it bright red. Since it is on the equator it is the only river that is complete red during this time. Within the walls they grow desert crops found no where else on the planet. These plants thrive in the scorching heat of the 2 suns as long as there is plenty of water. Durring the flood season the farmlands are replenished with new sediment thus allowing for rich farmland.

On the cliff sides are the famous spherical cliff homes which connect the floor to the top of the mesas. They also have many dug out caverns in the cliff face as well. Within the cliffs it is cool and protected from the heat outside. The road connects connects to other outposts in which they use to protect their desert empire from the other tribes. There is some trade of caravans among some tribes like the jungle tribe but not too much.

I do not have it, i only got to try it at E3. And the Nauceans crashed before i got to do that. However the Wolly Gruntrerium walks just like a centaur. And his babies tail were hoving behind their butt. It was funny.

I decided to model a planet with buildings, trees and animals on it.
Bumping terrain on a globe with a coastline and without any heightmap was easier than I thought (not using a displacement map like this test (http://www.sporewiki.com/images/4/4f/Planet2.jpg) for more flexibility in detail level).
Placing cities and 1/1000 times as big objects on each other also works. (this was just a horribly looking test if its possible at all)
Modeling rivers that flow downwards on a globe sloping between hills with a low polygon count is a different story.
Gotta start with rivers, beaches and key points next time or it will just look too ugly

Tell us about the Mountain Tribe's Aohoshi religion, please.

Here ya go Caltrop ;)

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_aohoshi.jpg)

Here is the Mountain tribe at the shrine of Aohoshi. Aohoshi is the big brother of Nauceanica and Au. He is an Ocean Tribe by race but is worshiped by both the Ocean and Mountain Tribe (some cave tribe too). Those that worship Aohoshi believe he is the true creator of all the universe but was too modest to say so and let his little sister and brother bicker over which one of them did. Aohoshi encourages peace and harmony. Aohoshi is represented by the Blue Giant in the sky which is from the Neighboring solar system and not even their own. The home star is Au the red dwarf and if Aohoshi was no there then there would not be enough heat to warm the planet of Nauceanica.

In the Mountain tribe tradition they carve huge wooden sculptures of Aohoshi as well as smaller lesser gods. This is just the larger of them. But each yurt has a small wooden idol with a mini-shrine in which they pray to at noon when Aohoshi is highest in the sky. Wen visiting the shrine they sent down a bowl on inscents and bow their heats with arms out wide. The candles in each oral tentacle on the sculpture are kept lit all the time and are changed out each day. The candles are made from the fat of woolly gobblehorns. Durring the winter solstice they roast a woolly gobblehorn in honor of Aohoshi, it is rather like Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one. They share gifts have a big feast, dance, sing and play music.

Well, after several hours, I have read the entire thread, pages 1 through 78.  Interesting stuff and I thank you for it.

In the Hydro at E3 thread, you mentioned that it was harder to make something planned than to make something from just playing with the clay in the editor.  Do you think you will be able to make a fair approximation of the Naucean when the editor is finalized, and you have the opportunity to take your time building it?  In other words, did you see the right kinds of parts avaliable in the creature editor that you will need for a Naucean?

You could have just red the stuff on Spore Wiki. the link is the first thing in red on the first page. its all in historical order and without all the other comments. LOL I applaud you for reading it all.

Well it all depends upon what finally comes out. form what was at E3, no. The tentacles were broken, the "floots" were not there and there was no 2 thumbed hand. I mean i could make it, but it will be as different as my Woolly gruntrerium concept to the final in editor. In short it will sort of resemble it but not exactly. However there its lot of time between now and the release and they could surprise me with new parts as well as me playing with the editor more once i get it.

As for the planet i doubt i will get so many biomes. I will probably be limited to like a river tribe are rather than having mountain, desert, jungle and so on all on the same planet. Thats if i can even creature the planet first or after i have made it to UFO stage with a another species making it.

Unfinished planet model now has 3000 polygons, will have ~4000 polygons, twice as much as the naucean model:

This is Aohoshi Village at 557,500 A.S. It is just a small Iron Age village that live up at the end of the treeline. They use the conifer trees for wood and gather their water from the snow. They live in hide covered yurts with stone bases. On the far right of the picture you can see a barn in which they hold their prized woolly gobblehorn. They hunt in the forest and fish in the streams. They now raise the woollys rather than following the migration rout of the wild woolly gobblehorns like in the past. They do not grow crops due to the harsh soil how ever they do eat moss and lichen that grows on the rocks around as well as roasted conenuts from the conifer trees. The village is surround by a palisade wall and the entrance is decorated with woolly gobblehorn antlers. The single path that winds down the mountain leads to the Grassland and River tribes in which they trade goods. They also from time to time travel deep into the mountains to the caves in which the Cave Tribe live in, though as time goes on they visit them less and less.

They may not have lived on such a hash planet but they did go though their own share of horrific wars bettween their own tribes in past history. In also love how you give logical explanations for why things are they way they are rather than saying "because I said so". I think that is key for a believable creature. To give reason why even if they are bazaar and diffrent :D

I am a person who really beleives in honesty. And facts can't lie. Too often people claim things and are caught in their lies because they cannot logically justify or explain certain things. Nothing says "beleiveable" like accurate facts and having an answer to any question that can be posed.

I'm agnostic: I don't beleive in God because I have seen no proof he exists, the big bang theory makes just as much sense to me as intelligent design. However, if someone could show me undenyable proof God existed, I would admit it. However that has yet to happen. Also, I don't feel I need a God or a religion to give purpose to my life, I have enough faith in myself to get along just fine  :D

Hey hydro, just thought I'd mention that your nauceans are actually one of the reasons I wanted to start making a creature in the first place, they kick ass, so good job *thumbs up* haha :P they're kind of like the opposite of my Necromonicons, evolving on a water world instead of my heated lava planet. But I read your posts and I'm glad you like my creatures too and I hope there can be a long horrific war between our two species ;D

A war with the Nauceans would be short and bloodless... for the Nauceans. What would happen is:
1. Mother sphere warps into an occupied system.
2. Mother Sphere wipes out entire enemy presence in said system.
3. Mother Sphere warps into the next occupied system.
4. Go to 2

But the Nauceans do not know of the danger yet. even with the mothersphere the Nauceans  cannot manage to protect all of the fanfic universe and there are a number of strategies the Necromonicon can utilize the weakens of the mothersphere would be that the folding drive takes a lot of energy and requires precise calculation to navigate with!

If the Necromonicon use Hit-And-Run tactics they will be hard to stop, the Mothersphere will only be able to be in one place at a time while they strike all around!

I know that the Necromonicon only need supply's and technology! And I know just where they will get it from! Ha ha  ;)

Yeah once those buggers get inside of a mother sphere then it is bad news for all. Thats why the Nauceans would rather selfdestruct into a black hole than give up the ship to creatures like those.

Also there was mother spheres than the Sina and Serina. Infact there is one for each of the Naucean Gods. Its just they have not came into play yet. Some are way out in the far reches of the galaxy. Think of them as mobile planets.

Just wait until you see the Mother Sphere "Po". Its a small(er) but experimental sphere who is taking the next phase in bending space travel, they are bending time now. Note this will be the special unit that is very hard to duplicated by the Nauceans let alone other races  in this fanfic role playing forum games. Time travel is powerful and should not be abused by people. I am even resistant to develop it. but it is making logical sense for them to over time to eventually develope it as one of their trade mark technologies.

As an experimental device, perhaps it could allow only small jumps through time... say a few hours. Or maybe time bending in the sense that you can accelerate or slow a specific area while the rest of the universe continues at normal speed. So you could maybe keep a dangerous prisoner in a slow-time field to stop them escaping, or speed up time for a patient recovering from illness or injury so they can get back to work/war faster.

It will have limited jumps as well as beam capability to alter space within the beam. For instance causing time to speed up within the beam or reverse within the beam. Imagine planet un-blowing up or Necromonicon starving within a beam that lasts for centuries yet to the sphere appears to only be on for a few hours. Note these feature cannot just be done any time. They take a long time to charge up, calculate and execute without something going wrong.

Actually i did not. Is a blueprint for a super planet destroyer in Master of Orion 2. With it you can shout 18 times with the most destructive weapon in Master or Orion. Usually you do not have that must use for that kind of destructive power but is a fun built. There are builds however that are even more powerfull however but the Doom Star with 9 stellar converters and a time warp facility is one of the most striate forward builds for Ultimate Weapon of the Universe. (Think of the Death Star x 18.)

This gave me an idea... Reckoning that mother spheres are the size of a small moon, would it not be reasonable for actual wars to be fought inside of them due to an invasion force getting inside or somthing? I know you said they'd normally self-destruct... but what if one of the sphere were decommisioned and set in orbit of some far-off planet?

Yes this map (http://www.sporewiki.com/Image:Naucean_geography2.jpg) in a top down view like satelite photos (http://www.evl.uic.edu/pape/data/Earth/) or just any less blurry style would be good.

That is looking very good! I have no idea on the heights on the mountains. Just however high they need to be to have snow on a tropical planet. Think MT Kilimanjaro, a snowy mountain in the tropics.

Also don't forget there are 2 suns in the sky. A small Red dwarf thats is the center of the solar system and a blue giant that is neighboring the solar system.

Here are textures for the moons.

Sina (Small Moon - 2/3 the size of Sirenia-  diameter = 2,333 km)

Nauceanica - diameter = 12,000 KM

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_fisherman.jpg)

Here is a River Tribe Fisherman. They were important for the River tribe since their homes were on the water. They use little reed boats that have holes in which their flippers and tail can fit though and the use them to propell them though the water yet still stay on the top of the surface from the buoyancy of the boat. In the boat is a basket in which they catch "nauish" or Nauceanica-Fish. They used domesticated Pucks to dive into the water and catch the nauish. There are 4 kinds of Pucks, one that are trained to catch nauish, one that lay many eggs and one that get very fat and are eatten. There also have been known to have fighting male Pucks that have razor sharp bills and fight each other to the death. Nauceans gamble on these for who will win.

Once a Puck has caught a nauish it is toped by a rope in which is around their neck so they cannot swallow it. After a day on the river the fisherman unties the rope and feed them a portion of the nauish for their good work and ride back home on little perches on either side of the small reed boat. With for pucks they can get about 100 nauish per day (average 25 per puck). The Naucean fisherman work together by making a big circle of reed boats with nets dragging so the larger nauish cannot escape and then the pucks pick them off. This allows for the younger nauish to survive and grow bigger to reproductive age, thus allowing for the population of nauish to last indefinitely with this balance of fishing. Some fishermans have been known to travel with river flowits to who swim outside of the nets and scare away water predators like swoarks and eelish.

Yep fish hatcheries. But those were not made until the Industrial Era. Before then the population depleted as the Naucean population grew. By the Bio-tech Era they were spliced with other creatures as well as used as "Guinea pigs" (see Nauceans geneticist drawing it is in the container).

Some texturing done. scale consistency test (not perspective but parallel image, so the moon looks larger). On a global view in higher resolution a "nearby" naucean is one blurry pixel big and you may see all cities on one shot. I think i will scale every object more, making the river tribe river as wide as possible.

Oh no not really. The population is not that complex. This is more on the spore scale of things rather than realistic Earth. Think of it like if earth was doen it would have like one tribe for europe, one for africa one for asia, north america, etc. Rather than all the countires within Europe.

Nano 2nd Skin
Durring the Nano Age the Robots finally uprise against the Nauceans. However The Nauceans are well equipped by this time. They have developed nano technology in which is used for just about everything. Forinstance in the picture it shows how it used as a second skin (a liquid-like material made with microscopic nano bots that form into diffrent shapes). This second skin protects the Nauceans from chemical, biologically and radiation. The skin filters out clean breathable air as well as allows for enhancer or deadened senses. It also works like an exo suit in which it enhances their strength. They can be programed to make diffrent shapes as well as even add additional limbs. As you can see done the spine it is making spiny blades. Each Naucean has a impant in which they can mentally be connected with this second skin. Unlike the robots its not sentent and works more like a part of the Naucean than a separate entity. The Nauceans themselves are genetically enhanced from birth and live much longer than before. Just about all natural disease have been cured. But alien or Naucean made biologicals still are a great threat.

The Nauceans also gave this technology to the Torpals which created the ultimate Torpal Zero G Warrior

Each Warrior has a impant in which they can mentally be connected with this nano suit. This allows for better communication on the battle field since all Warriors can know what to do and where to go just by being told in their head by the commander as the commender is able to see the battle field through any of the eyes of the warriors.

Behold the wondrous Time Sphere known as Po. Po is named after the Naucean Myth of Po the River flowit.

I read this and thought a bit.If i were to create a race and claim they had time travel technology, people would ignore me. However they will not ignore Hydro as he is respected and because of that he has superior technology to anyone else. Are we still in a time when someone who wants the same as someone else is denied it? Are we really like that?

Oh wait, yes we are.

Oh if their are postions then the Nauceans would be good as Head of Science & Technology, sicne they seem to be the most advanced of all the creatures created so far.

When i read this i laughed a bit. i don't think the wording is right. It suggests that someone could create a creature and say "These guys are way more advanced than nauceans" and they would be. I guess what i'm really saying is that we should have some kind of system to determain the power of a race. Espiacially with this war which is oviously coming

Having said that, the new writings descovered by my race should be fun

As I have already said before, 'power' is indeed based upon the work a person has put into their creature, as well as how much respect the creator carries. Its a simple as that.

Po

At what point did Nauceans start allowing males to serve in the military?

They always have. Equally Male and Females since the begining. However Females are slightly larger than males in Nauceans.

To chaosandwalls:

They did not start out with this. This as been gradually over time. Infact they would not have stated making these if not for the last war in which their mother sphere Sierina blew up.

i LOVED those teddy bears

but with Naucean, i love those new pictures, very surprising on how it depends on where they are and how each one is a different creature in itself

i just hope the Creature Editor doesnt dissapoint me so that these things can acctually come to life, because before i even start the game, these are DEFIENETLY going on it!

o Forward Backward through time.
o Change time within a beam.
o Slow down time relative to sphere.
o Speed up time relative to sphere.

this is exactly 1/10 out of my E-10 project but i guess you beat me to the punch because we still have to study time tech,dang.

in my project it would of been
o forward backward slightly through time
o change time on a set area
0 slow down time relative to the suit
0 speed up time relative to the suit

maybe you can teach us this part of your tech to advance our project abit as this is one of the hardest parts.

the nano torpal also has related info that we need on advancing strength, but we are also studying advance speed.

Awesome work. I could never do something this deep (Or, well, maybe I could, but if I did it would not be nearly so original and creative), and the artwork exceeds my artistic skill (read: the complete lack of my artistic skill) by a thousand times.

Actually, this thing is what led me to these forums in the first place, although  I'd considdered joining up a while ago because Steve's podcast on Auto Assault, but I was just starting to realize that that game was not going to be all that great.

And, from what I heard from the reviews, it wasn't.  :-\

The Nauceans want to make good with the Torpals after the whole blowing up of the Sierina so they are more than happy to provite them with technology to heal the rift of that tragaity and bond the 2 species closer in relations.

We still don't really have the parts to make this creature - The ones for the VGCats comic strip are all pretty simple and none have quite the complexity of your critter - the issue that you ran into trying to get the tentacles to come out of the Naucean's mouth aren't ones that we had to deal with for the VGCats creatures.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_pirate.jpg)

Durring the late Exploration Age and early Industrial Age pirates rule the Sea of EA. As the colonies were forming Naucean pirates would plunder these ships for gold being shipped back to the old world as well as just taking over the ships themselves. Like Human pirates they lost body parts such as their legs, hands, and eyes. The pirate in the picture shows one without his "floot" which is replace by a peg leg. Also its left main eye has been poked out and has an eye patch. It was common for pirate to loose oral tentacles too as well as scared up bodies. They used cutlas-like quill-blades as well as pistols.

Life on the high seas was dangerous, but pirates made it even more so. Unlike humans Nauceans swim very well so a man overboard did not mean death. Many battles were fought under the water. Also slave ship being shipped to the colony plantations would have slaves jump ship whenever they could and tried to swim to land. This was not always possible and a population of run away slaves lives under the ocean living off it like their ancestors did. Usually the Ocean tribe slaves survived the most but some swamp and even jungle tribe managed to survive. Those that could not cut it some times became pirates. On of the most famous was Shimprawn the Pirate. he was a small run away jungle tribe who was extremely small even for Jungle tribes, but he had a temper and wild nature about him. The Jungle tribe is known for their tree swinging acrobatics and he was no diffrent, Shrimprawn could fly around the masts and sails in an acrobatic show of death, taking over the fleets of the River, Grassland and even Desert Tribe ships.

This age of pirates change dover time to smugglers during modern times and even the rebels during the space age. These were never recognized as an official tribe but their group did have a skull and cross bones flag which is still used as a trademark during the galactic age by the rebel space pirates.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Naucean/naucean_santa.jpg)

Qat is a diffrent type of God. One in which is based upon a real Mountain Tribe Naucean who use to bring eggs to the villages up in the mountains on a Woolly Gobblehorn pulled sled. But over time it transformed into a mythical god named Qat, just like the Gas giant in their solar system and his woolly gobblehorn called Laka, also like the Gas giant in their solar system.

Qat wears a bright blue leather suit and leave a silver woolly gobble horn egg in juvenile Naucean's "floots" which hang on the fireplaces to dry out from walking in the snow. He comes in at night on the very fast slead pulled by Laka the magical woolly gobblehorn which has glowing gobbles to see though the fog. Unlike Earth's Santa it cannot fly but he dose sled around at super fast speeds.

Over time this strange tradition of the winter solstice spread to other tribes and changed as it went. For the river tribe he rides around on a lystrophant, while for the desert tribe he rides around on a desert gobblehorn. But they all have the gobbles or trunks glowing blue. It is not clear how he is related to the other patheon so it is widely accepted as a children's imaginary tradition. Durring the modern age marketing of Qat exploded with tons of merchandise such as silver egg shaped trinkets and even woolly gobblehorn, egg and Qat shaped ornaments placed on their solstice trees.

Yeah, but the actual creature itself makes up for the lack of historical\cultural originality. That, and half the popularity of the idea is due to the fact that people identify with them so well.

Durring the modern age like in all societies there is more of a seedy side to them that exploits the urge to reproduce by biological creatures. The Nauceans were no diffrent and had exotic dancing. In the picture it shows a jungle tribe female where the always "flexible" little Nauceans are swinging around on poles. Below a fatcat ocean tribe Mafia leader, named Blubber Tony gives the stripper some cash. Durring matting the oral tentacles glow so the strippers show this off which turns Naucean males on. Also the bigger the tail flukes the sexier a Naucean is, so during the modern age small tail fluked females get tail implants to look sexier.

Maybe you should take it as a compliment. I mean, pretty much all of the stealing on here originated from people talking/discussing/arguing about your Nauceans. It just means they're very very interesting and you created a species that is truely memorable. I wish my thread had 90 pages :(

Once again Dr. Nauvorkean (the Naucean from the prison Escape Adventure) is at it again. He has created many abominations by making alien hybrids such as the "Nazean" and his latest creation the "Torquil"!!  The Torquil are a hybrid of the Torpal and Quillaran. This strange harry combination makes for a most dangerous specimen. It has 8 clawed limbs, spiked armor, a toothy muscle, pointy eats and 8 eyes. It makes a horrible didgeridoo sounding howl and can climb up just about anything. Its bat is virtually impenetrable to laser fire and it has a terrible temper. If there was an ever an abominable snow man this was it since it thrives in cold climate with its woolly quill filled fur. This is one of the more popular specimens in the Scion Complex chimera pit fighting.
