I can't register somehow, but if I can, I'll give it a 10/10! 8)

Any plans to RP with them? ;) :)

Thank you, and I don't know about RPing. I haven't looked around these forums much, I just shamelessly registered to get attention. Sorry.  :)

Don't worry, it's pretty easy once you know the basics and read the guide. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5390.0)

It seems daunting at first but once you get the hang of it, it's just like having a conversation.

I suggest joining The Grand Federation. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=14995.0) It's a good way to start out. :)

In other news: Now I have completed the civilization stage Ashema, so the full line is complete. Behold the awesome group pic:

Thank you. I've never played Halo, but I think I know what you mean. I've seen them around.

I have no created a more primitive creature as an earlier evolution for this race, it is called the Ashemrah:

By the way, I just noticed. Is this thread in the wrong part of the forum? Should it be in the Sporepedia Exchange? What is the difference between the two?  ???

This board is for creatures you intend to Role play with.  The other is for sharing, without the RP factor.

I see. Well it could use a better description. Could a mod move this then? Into the Sporepedia Exchange? Or should I contact one of them and ask them nicely? (Who are they?)
Title: Re: The Ashema Empire

Krakow Sam can move this.  He's the blue name at the bottom of the front page.  You don't have enough posts to send PMs though, so I'll do it.

Edit: Done
Title: Re: The Ashema Empire
Post by: Crazen on October 12, 2008, 09:46:47 pm
or this board is for creatures you want to develop beyond the limits of spore, with your own imagination.

not to mention they get a good amount more attention here.

There is a new creation made by me, called the Lamashtun. She has nothing to do with the Ashema Empire however. Maybe I should rename this thread to "Creations of Nethellus". Here she is, by the way:

Hey, that's actually good! And not ugly! Amazing!

You get the bipedal figure just human enough to be familiar but just alien enouh to be interesting. Good job.

(Not to mention that pesky Uncanny Valley.)

Thank you very much!  ;D

The most difficult thing is of course the face, which is why all the masks are there. The parts that are available only serves to make monkeys, not humans. Which is a shame.

I surely hope so. Homer is not very feminine either.  ;D And thank you, I've worked a lot on perfecting the body. It is not easy, especially as you have to clothe them all over again if you decide you have to change anything on the base model. I think I dressed up the first one of the Ashemas three or four times.

I've updated the first post by the way. Presentation is important. :) And I've renamed the thread.

No, not really. If you read the name of the creator, it is still me. :D The note in the description is there to prevent stealing. It has confused some people before.

Post by: Yuu on October 19, 2008, 05:42:40 am
     I can see why it got deleted. :-\ It's probably due to the skin color looking a bit too much like the real feminine body. :)

     Pretty awesome work with the mouth and body! 8) :) Though, I'm not sure if it would look better if it had a real feline mouth. :-\ I guess we'll just have to wait for an expansion that could make believable humans. :)

But actually it was deleted by myself, I simply was not happy with how it turned out exactly (and I have yet to upload the new version). Maybe I was being a bit unclear.  :)

I have now completed the updated version of the Felician. Finally.  :D
There are better patterns in the jewelery and better legs basically. Some small adjustments to the head as well. I think she looks much better now.

The ones who select features tend not to go for realism and detail I think. They generally go for cute things that look like a rainbow threw up on them, either that or a perfect replica of your own toothbrush, as a spaceship.  ;)

So this is not exactly feature material.

Or like the wife of Chtuhlu, someone said.  :)


The biggest problem when making females is the face. Here's an alternative solution, the Faceless:

Thank you! There is Deans however. He is better than me at doing the basic body at least. I have tried to fully grasp his techniques, and succeeded somewhat, but not yet fully. I think he's inactive now though.

And this is my latest. I think it's my best one in quite a while:

Thank you! And it was most popular creation ever, for a while, beating even Charles Darwin himself. Now the rating decay has gotten to it however.

Here is something else, a strange alien thing:

I made a couple of creations for a civ/empire contest, but I did not finish them all. I released two though. This ship and creature:

How long do you usually spend on your creations Nethellus?
Title: Re: The Creations of Nethellus
Post by: Yuu on April 25, 2009, 05:39:37 pm
I too am interested. :)

It would take quite some time, I'd imagine.
Title: Re: The Creations of Nethellus
Post by: Nethellus on April 25, 2009, 06:17:58 pm
I've seen better...

Me too. You should go see Iraultza87's (http://www.spore.com/view/profile/Iraultza87) spaceships (if you have not already), those are the best in Spore, as far I have seen. I'm not that great with the spaceship editor. Though that was my best attempt so far I think.

And about time spent: The spaceship above took something like 6 hours, and the creature even more actually, even though it might not look like it. It went through perhaps four different versions before becoming what it is. You can see that it is a bit more complicated in the sporepedia pic:
(http://ll-609.ea.com/spore/static/image/500/325/609/500325609001_lrg.png)
And the animation actually works in game as well. It is kind of crawling forward, using its back body. Looks good, I think.

I do most often spend more than one day of spare time on my creations, the most complicated ones like the Felician (the female lion thing) I am sure I have spent more than 10 hours on (and more if you count the time it took to make the base body), that one I actually reclothed once, and it is a VERY complicated mask to get precisely right.

Also the color/texture is like half the creation, I think. I sometimes spend more time on that then the actual form of the creation. If you look at the Faceless as an example, the only reason they work is because of the texture and color, which I spent a lot of time on perfecting and trying out all useful combinations I could think of.

So it takes time. I want my things to be perfect, and yet they never are. After I hit upload I still tend to feel like something could be improved, there are a lot of creations I would like to delete and make better versions of, and some I already have improved once or twice. But I don't have that kind of time, really.

 ;D

Damn, you've got a lot more patience than I do. I tend to work mine in sporadic bursts of inspiration in between an hour or so of staring at whatever I have so far. Because of that a lot of creatures just fade and don't get finished. The fact that our horrible graphics card refuses to do any sort of decent texture doesn't help either.
Title: Re: The Creations of Nethellus

Neth, man, I gotta hand it to ya' you've got quite a lot more patience than most Spore creators I know.

Kudos to you, Neth! 8)

Thanks.  :)
I'm not sure what I should count as an area, but there are two camps outside the city, and then it is the city itself, which will have loads of buildings of course, but more notable places will be four military installations, two refugee camps, two government buildings, and three taller towers. All of these will not be used in the quest itself, but most will, and some will have interiors.

And, yes, I expect a fierce struggle with the complexity meter.  :-\

Post by: Nethellus on July 04, 2009, 11:53:03 pm
Hm. As it is now, I will sadly not be able to complete the adventure I have written about here until Maxis patches the game. It is because of this bug: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0SbLX2v7OY
It pretty much turns off the AI of creatures that are inside or too close to buildings (as you see in the second example in the video, they just stand around doing nothing), and there is no workaround that is good enough.  :(

Though I have been working on something else, a less complex mission that will involve less fighting and more thinking. It takes place on this island/outpost/city:

Yep, sucks big time.  It pretty much made me scrap my second adventure I was on the process of creating.  Went for an outdoors adventure, but I would love to be able to have adventures were fights happen *inside buildings*.  It's not so much that it turns off AI from any building, only if the building has structures stacked or parts embedded into other parts, which is pretty much most complex buildings.

I was thinking of start uploading to deviantart for a while, but now it seems that Photobucket has decided that they made a mistake, or something. Because the image came back.

Anyway, I made this recently:

It is much more fun to watch it in game. I've put some thought into how it should animate.

This is the description of it:
"The Duo live their lives in constant agony. Their two minds are always at each others throats, fighting the urge to tear the body in half."
And if you look at it in game, it does look like it is trying to tear itself in half sometimes in the idle animation, and very much so when walking.
