Title: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: LadyM on June 20, 2008, 07:29:30 am
I thought it would be nice to have a thread to honor all the Gaming Steve members who get "Featured" on the Sporepedia. I've only seen one so far but I'm sure more will be coming as we have so many good creature makers here. Please post here as you see them come up. If you see that your creature got featured, then post here too.

It's not the featured content that worries me but more the most popular, just now i saw a very badly done rip off of pikachu*, titled as a registered trade mark symbol.

Congrats, Taco. *Jealous*

My creatures are nowhere good enough to get featured. Ahh well.. I'll keep at it I suppose. Maybe if I included a description. -_-'

Edit: Wait this is unrelated but why is Jahelo's Ash Stalker on your Sporepedia as well?

Edit: Edit: Nevermind. It's different but it looked so vastly similar at first glance. Though there are a couple of people that appear to have taken Jahelo's and your's.

Post by: AhavoRaboTaco on July 08, 2008, 11:42:19 am
I took the link from his sporepedia directly to the concept drawing and decided to do it since it was awesome.
I took the paint scheme but I did everything else from scratch.

Well danny-o8777 seems to have made it from scratch and the other guys have altered it, however a Manjensan copied Jaleho's version and i will be reporting.

whole community when people start searching that tag.

Jeez. I'll never get featured at this rate. Maybe it's cause my stuff is crap? Even my good stuff is bad.. :( My top 3 creatures are recreations. Krang is 1st (Damn TMNT fanatics :P). TIE Fighter is 2nd (which is now the second [by now perhaps 3rd] best TIE Fighter on the 'Pedia). Brown Rat is 3rd, and that's based off of Ratiega (with all mentions to Jaleho).

I happen to quite enjoy your stuff Op... I extremely doubt I will ever be featured either, but I think it speaks less about my creatures and more about the number of good creatures created by everyone... which means my game will have great creatures from others to discover... and there is just no way Maxis can feature every creature that is great... heck, some creatures I or others made I thought were brilliant are near the bottom of popularity and some I thought were crap are popular... I am very happy with my creatures and that is all that matters, I try to make them all viable if they were 'real' and try my best that they animate properly and look good... so I am proud of them... and if a few other people love them, all the better... if not.. well they are missing out  ;)
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: HarvesteR on July 11, 2008, 07:26:01 pm
well i've been kinda hoping that i would get featured one of these days... but i had the handicap of only having the trial version...

now i got the full CC... let's see if i get noticed now... i don't think my creatures are complete garbage....

i just hope maxis will eventually stop featuring those novelty creations such as the whack-a-mole creature, and start paying more attention to creatures that could actually improve the game experience... or at least move about without getting torn in half :P

Cheers

Then why've you not commented me? Huh? HUH? HUH?! :P Honestly though, some of my stuff is really quite average, however that's because I'm trying to create average stuff. "Realistic" or "believable" stuff. That unfortunately limits my creativity and means my work doesn't stand out as much. That leaves the recreations to get all the attention. I mean Sovickle started as a joke, it was actually my most popular creature for a while. Capiteagle was part of the Sovickle joke and is now fairing far better in my creature Ratings. I consider both of those to be excellent creatures, for being jokes. I don't know how I'd feel about them in my game because they'd be out of their element. I do love how the urshanka came out on Sovickle and I just generally love the realistic look (minus the colors, which I at one point had accurately set to a Bald Eagle look) of Capiteagle.

Edit: At some point I lost track of what I wanted to say. I think it was that, generally I consider my work average but I do enjoy it. I just wish it got featured so my hard work would get recognized. I spend a lot, sometimes hours, of time on getting a creature to move or animate right. Getting something to look a certain way is easy. I usually have the final "design" of my creature within 5-10 minutes. It's getting all the parts to work like I want them to, getting it to move an animate in a not so awkward manner, and just generally working out a lot of kinks. For example, Shiroobbit (another one of my insanely popular creatures) animates FANTASTICALLY. I'm particularly proud of how the Scared animation (I suggest you load up the creature and look at that animation) came out. It looks, at first glance, relatively standard though. So the reason why my stuff will never be featured is because it's impossible for Maxis/EA/Web Support/Whoever does that stuff to download every good or decent creature just to see how they move and animate.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: WeatherMAN on July 11, 2008, 09:50:45 pm
Then why've you not commented me? Huh? HUH? HUH?! :P

Actually... according to my records, I've commented 4 times on your creatures... and with your last (generous btw - much appreciated), 4 comments, that makes 8 total comments you've made on mine  ;)... I will catch back up tomorrow sometime (it is awful late for me)

Before we take this thread from a "Hurray GamingSteve featured creatures ;D" to "but but but Maxis... why not me?  :'("... I will say I will take 'realistic' aliens that animate well over niche designs (not that any GS members have gotten featured that way... but there have been other "creatures" that I would never want to be in any game) any day... so I will be sure to have you in my Sporecast bud!
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: Doomsday on July 11, 2008, 10:36:18 pm
I was mostly kidding in general anyway. I should really spend more time searching the Sporepedia.

I know, but some times I can't help the jerky animations either. One animation that particularly agitates me is the jerky and awkward rotating animation and the way the laughing animation causes certain body or mouth configurations to completely spaz out. Suffice to say, Laugh is one of my most tested animations.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: K3rnan on July 12, 2008, 11:14:46 am
Just given your sporepedia a thorough going over OpDDay... just don't complain about how many comments you gotta approve LOL.  Seriously though, your comments do not gone unnoticed.

And to anyone else reading this who's commented on my stuff I will get round to your sporepedia eventually ;)

Post by: K3rnan on July 14, 2008, 09:15:18 am
I noticed there was quite a high turnover of featured creatures during the initial frenzy but it has slowed to once a day and they appear to not update the list over the weekend any more.

EDIT:  I just saw all today's featured creatures are of a mechanical variety.  Perhaps they are going to start picking featured creatures based on a daily theme?  Or perhaps the person selecting them likes those type of creatures?  A theme style featuring system would be quite cool I guess.

I'm not surprised that GS members get featured often because that's why I came here...  so many amazing creatures from gamingsteve members, I had to check it out.

Sorry for the double post, but has anybody run into this Gioku (http://www.spore.com/view/profile/Gioku) guy? He said that my creature was featured at http://www.giokuspore.0catch.com/WEBBOT/index.html , which just goes to a junk site. I was inclined to report him for posting junk links as Firefox blocked 3 popups and I wasn't about to allow them. He also had it in his tagline, which I reported in case he was trying to pull something.

I did leave a message on one of his creatures basically asing him to explain himself for the junk link.


nm, his site is having problems right now apparently.

Whoo, three Gamingsteve features in a row today!

Congrats Gec, Monster, and Deathstroke!

I think Monster and Deathstroke are the same ones as those on these forums.

Congrats Gec.

I have seen someone with the username Monster and I think I have seen someone named Deathstroke around here, I'm not sure if they are the same people as the ones that got featured.

I doubt it, but if they are they need to post more often.

Oh, and some guy named Hockey4Life made a stupid comment directed at everyone. So instead of reporting him I approved his comment so everyone can see how much of a stupid troll he is.

Love your creature Gec, it looks awesome! (It even looks like it will animate properly ;)) I really love it and voted it up and will comment soon (I'm sure ur flooded with comments though!)

I also found the irony in what Hockey4Life said.. I mean who is the bigger person with no life registering for spore, and going out and actively seeking to make fun of people... hilarity ;D

Congrats Markhas! I always wondered, what makes a creature get featured? I once saw a red faced creature that was featured.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: Yorpy on August 28, 2008, 10:59:13 am
I almost think that they just pull stuff out that catches their eye, vote on them and then post. I'll bet the one red faced one (I saw it, it did not deserve a feature...) was one that they asked one of the voters children about, and the child arbitrarily chose it. That is the only explanation I can think of... It is quite mysterious.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Featured Content
Post by: smjjames on August 28, 2008, 11:19:36 am
It's also possible that someone else chooses the featured creature that day and it changes the next day. It would explain the stretch of gamingsteve creatures bieng featured and then other people for a while, then back to some gamingsteve members.

Well if we have .37% of all uploaded content and are getting featured what appears to be far more than .37% of the time that has to show we are doing something right.

I should put that in my sig :D

Anyway, yes, we have that amount from a very large community base, and good creatures.

Well, since MaxisEditorDan is technically a member of Gamingsteve as he is registered here, congrats to him for getting his creature featured. :)

My Meduspik got featured. Some people say that it looks like something by a guy called pcguy89, the Cerebral Jellywraith. I want to see this, but every time I search him the Sporepedia freezes up.

Here's mine:

Yours looks NOTHING like the cerebral Jellywraith. 'cept they both float.

What's fun is that it doesn't float. There's a single foot hidden under it somewhere.

Not everyone knows what the Guggenheim Museum in New York looks like, especially if they don't live in the US. And with the way some things are colored in Spore, it was a valid question Kenobro made either way.

Still, it is a famous building that gets referenced all over the place. Heck I've even seen references to it in some Anime I watch. -_-
