Spore: Creation Corner / Unusual limb configuration
« on: May 08, 2006, 12:27:30 pm »
The creature I've been thinking up has at least one odd characteristic: arms that attach just above the front ankles.

The creature as a whole would have a squat central, 2-part body.  The neck would be fairly wide and the head would be mostly a wide mouth below a couple eyes with some hairy eyebrows.  The back portion of the body might have a shell on top with a rounded belly facing down.  The legs would protrude from the back portion with high knees like a spider.  The arms then attach to the front two legs just above the ankles.  Skin would be brown and leathery, maybe with some dark brown details.

I expect this to give it some odd capabilities, moving its front legs could give it greater reach, also it should be able to reposition its body and mouth fairly easily.  The question is, can the system handle this odd configuration since the position of two functional parts will depend on the position of two other functional parts.  Sure it would be able to animate it, and handle everything to a degree, but the real question is, would it figure out that it can move its front legs to help its arms achieve goals?

Forum Games / program part of spore

This 'game' might be a little more serious, and kinda requires some skills on the part of the players, but I would love to see how this works out.

So the idea is to create some basic component of spore, a prototype if you will, as a group effort.  I was thinking of doing one on my own, but that won't happen for a while, I don't have the time.

So, I'll open the floor to preliminary discussion

choose a component
choose a language

to maximize how many people can participate (not sure if that's the best of ideas, but we'll see) I suggest a language with readily available tools and can be broken up between people, so oop is probably a good requirement.

start talking design of the component (code wise, etc.)

I just want to see what people do with this.

Rules are simple, each poster must act out what the poster above him says (preferably in a humorous fashion) and then say what the next poster is

basic example:

above poster: The next poster is Jar Jar Binks.

current poster: Meesa go BOOM!

The next poster is Gaming Steve.
