Ahoy there. Sorry about not being able to respond to your private message. 50 post req., you know. I'm not totally sure what this is all about here to be honest- What exactly is this Sagan game you're speaking of? Educate me further and I might help you out with some artstuffs.
-Edit- Ok, d'hurr. Sorry, I checked out the previous topic, and explaining is no longer necessary. Sounds like good fun, count me in.
I suggest we start a poll for the climate type and terrain of the planet.

Well this sounds fun... but no longer original. Why don't you come up with something even better then Sagan, and which is actually new?

Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game
Post by: Camdoggery on September 13, 2006, 11:06:18 am
Likely whenever we feel like it, as long as it isn't overkill.

Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game
Post by: Genesis on September 13, 2006, 03:20:39 pm
I would enter.....
But I don't have much artistic talent, enough probablly. Who knows, I might be real good at cells. But then there is the issue of me having no time to do it.....
Maybe.

Sorry Guys, I have had some major issues come up in my life.. this game is canceled..
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - CANCELED
Post by: Netherflare on September 13, 2006, 05:20:45 pm
i will continue with it if you want to give the lead to someone else because this is a good idea!
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - CANCELED
Post by: Huckbuck on September 14, 2006, 07:01:22 am
I have sent an PM. Yesterday. But it isnt in my outbox.

Netherflare, I agree, lets do this, you can be the leader if you want to.

EDIT: Maybe we should do that in a new thread and just let this one die out?
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - CANCELED

Post by: Hunter on September 14, 2006, 12:43:59 pm
You guys go ahead and do this.... But please, still put me under the artists. Just because I cant support the game doesnt mean I cant help in it.

Whoever is going to be the leader, please Give me a PM. I have some information compiled to help you out.

Can't some one else just draw the single cell so we can start, or just use the one sagan started with?
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Hunter on September 14, 2006, 02:40:06 pm
No, we arent taking Hydros. Me and Netherflare are working as co-leaders on this... I have the information about planet and such and he will be the editor and updater....

Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Hydromancerx on September 14, 2006, 03:09:08 pm
Yeah make your own starting cell and solor system. Try to make it unique and diffrent from Sagan 4. I can't wait to see how this comes out.

I'm not sure if my drawing skills are good enough or if I can contribute everyday, can I join on some kind of probationary basis?

I humbly offer my talents at pseudo-science jargon to help describe and logically explain any extreme body modifications the creatures of . . . this planet may develop.  

Also, if anyone needs any suggestions for anything, I can usually come up with a bizarre or unique perspective on any subject.

Suggestion:  I think you need a system where the core artists regularly contribute creatures and auxiliary artists can PM you their creations, for review and eventual inclusion, sporadically.  That way you could bank creature ideas for what could be.  You definitely don't, and shouldn't, have to use them all, but you would have them ready and it could give you secret teleological agendas.  It would also expand your talent base exponentially.  Though you will not post the image of a creature made in Creature Editor 2.0 or at creaturecology.com, the idea of the creature may be brilliant.  

That's it for now.

Ok, you guys are all welcomed and im glad we are having alot of participants, BUT!

Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Huckbuck on September 15, 2006, 01:08:04 pm
Hmm... Maybe i could do it... but I'm not entirely sure how...
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Netherflare on September 15, 2006, 01:11:20 pm
maybe ask Hydro?
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Huckbuck on September 15, 2006, 01:15:06 pm
I could do that... oh what the heck I'll try to take the lead, gonna PM hydro at once.

You have mail.

Also i have a sudgestion for the sun's name. Drake anfter the "Drake equation". Just name your planet Drake 2, 3, 4 or 5  depending upon how far it is from the sun.

Drake Equation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation

Also the Drake Equation is sometimes known as the "Sagan Equation". So i thought it would be fitting.

Ok, im taking over, first of all we need someone to do the map, im doing the first starting organism and we will probably get started today!
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Huckbuck on September 16, 2006, 12:55:03 am
I hereby dub this planet Drake 3. I'm going to post the first organism in maybe an hour. Fellow artists, I need someone to make the starting map.

EDIT: sorry for the double post :-/
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: emmet on September 16, 2006, 12:55:47 am
Well maybe we could just use hydros starting cell? They are basically the same at the start. And I can't really make maps.
.
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Huckbuck on September 16, 2006, 12:59:33 am
If noone else wants to i can make the map, but we dont have to use Hydros cell, I have one. One more thing, should we start project Drake 3 in a new thread or just change the name of this thread?
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: emmet on September 16, 2006, 01:10:39 am
New thread.
Title: Re: Recruiting Artists For a Sagan-Like Game - New Management.
Post by: Huckbuck on September 16, 2006, 01:31:32 am
Ok im just going to make a map and then we'll start!

EDIT: Ok Drake 3 is up!!!!
