Galactic Ant Colony! (Join up SimANT fans!)
« on: August 15, 2008, 11:42:50 pm »
Ok so I loved SimANT back in the day. I still play it pretty often, and I want to make a massive intergalactic colony of alien-ants! The thing is, it gets kind of boring if I make all of them, and there have to be others out there who like ants or SimANT!
So I'm looking for a few good ant-people!

Basically your goal is: Make at least one "ant-ish" creature. Send it to me, post it or link the sporepedia entry! Eventually I will make them a sporecast.

Submissions:
     *There are lots of good insect parts (Gobsterclaw mouth, antenna, compound eyes) to make realistic ants. They DO NOT need to look earth made!
     *Real life recreations of ants are welcome, but go outside the box! Try to go as wild as you can with your alien ants, while still having somewhat of a noticeable insect quality. (Feathered ants? Octopus ants? Splice an ant with your favorite creation!)
     *Descriptions are nice! But not required.
     *There's no minimum requirements.

And there's one last thing (optional!) ant colonies have roles for their ants. Feel free to tell us how your ant fits into the colony (or maybe it doesn't! Gasp)

Is it a? (just to start, come up with whatever you see fit)
    soldier (military)
    worker (economic)
    breeder (religious)
    egg
    larva
    queen
    yellow-ant
    hybrid

    -or-
    spider (oh noes)
    antlion (ah the hole!)

Please tag any ant with "GalaticAntSwarm"!
(Colony members do not have to be specifically made for this to join up. However, please add the tag if able!)

I made a little ant a while back, It has 3 sets of jaws, so I guess it'd be a good soldier:


I also loved SimAnt back in the day! =D

The Moo-Ants of Drebus-1 are a popular addition to any galactic insect swarm.  After all nothing says "Good job drone!" like a fresh spray of ant milk!

Oooo yea he's a nice army ant Pietoro. Definitely an ant I'd want on my side in a fight.

Rusted, your cow ant made me lol. Something tells me that milk might be a bit toxic to humans!

Saw this, and I just had to try my hand at making an ant, and I must say I quite like the result, especially its walking animations.

I'll make that spider that was in there, but I'm going to make it into that laser shooting spider which shows up in freeplay. Your game was over, period, when that freaking spider with laser eyes showed up. I always wondered why the hell its shooting lasers, but once it shows up, you can't get rid of it as they come back.

Edit: Here it is :)

I already had a creature that had the spider shape, just had to do some modification and repainting. I only remember it as a hairy brown spider (supposed to be a generic spider I guess). Also, I know it doesn't look like it could shoot lasers, but the one in SimAnt didn't either until it started doing so. There is no laser ability ingame (the closest would be the electrical thing from cell phase), so I gave it max spit ability.

I made this a while ago back when I only had the free trial.  I like him a lot though.  Feel free to use my Space Ant.

Oh noes a spider has come to eat all the ants! Quickly - swarm powers! Yea I think I had that happen once with the lasers and thought it was a bug.... Love the super long mandibles and all. Now we need a couple ant lions, a giant shoe, and a lawnmower...

Pixxel the Antsolider is awesome. Our first ant that's evolved to bipedal-ness. (Plus it's kind of cute and looks like it would do well at tribe!)

Love the space ant, very colorful. She has a great body shape too!

I liked to play sandbox mode on SimAnt and I found that if you had a very high population (if that was the trigger), the laser toting spider would appear and melt the ants before they even got close. So, I saw that laser spider often.
