Atarr's creations (mostly vehicles)
« on: September 11, 2008, 09:53:17 am »
I decided to make a thread here. Most of the things in here will be vehicles because that's what I enjoy making most. My sporepedia page is here


Let's start with a creature though

The Steops the creature I play at the moment. They are a trading empire who will only hold off buying star systems if the race inhabiting them sells cheap equipment. If you wondering about the things above his eyes, he actually has 4 eyes and I was thought that part would look good as a monacle (to complete the 19th century industrialist look). Sadly I can't figure out how to do asymmetry in the outfit editor, so he wears two of them atm. His appearance is a result of playing through the creature phase without making too big a change between generations.

Since I seem to be the only person in the empire that actually does anything I decided to build a one-man ship to reflect that.

Then I decided it could be smaller still. Unfortunately it was too small to be realistically used by the Steops, but that gave me an idea...

Robots! The steops are incredibly lazy and build robots to do all their dirty work for them, even to meet and greet new races. This UFO, the S-ACTC is another really tiny vehicle. The eyes were inspired by the sentinels from the matrix.

The Robot-of-burden, a small robot built for spice collection.

The Doggy-paddler, a silly robot cruiser.


And finally for now

Some great vehicles, the eyes are really kl. The Robot-of-Burden is my favourite and he looks really cute lol :D

I'll keep an eye on what you do in the future.

The eyes remind me of Bouncer Big Daddy from Bioshock.

Seriously though, i love the robot idea for vehicles, and especially the S-ACTC....what does it stand for BTW?

I thought about big daddies too. As for S-ACTC, it stands for Steops AI Controlled Trading Craft, Steops being the race owning the craft and their being traders. I came up with it in kind of a hurry just to make a change from seeing "Space ship ufo requesting permission to orbit". Thanks for your comments too.
