Best of Asymmetry Sporecast!!!
« on: October 14, 2008, 02:22:41 am »
Hey guys, I've seen some amazing asymmetrical creatures from all stages out there, but I don't think I've found any that really explore the potential of it. Understandably, the complexity limit issues that it causes tends to limit what you can truly achieve with it.

It's common enough to see the extra pieces, be it armor or spikes, or the occassional extra or enlarged limb on the many asymmetrical creations out there. However, it is my belief that with such great creative potential out there, asymmetry has near limitless potential.

With all due honesty, I of course haven't been able to browse through all of Sporepedia (no one can!) in search of  creations. So I'm going to ask for your help here in search of the best creations that push the limits and creativity using asymmetry!

So I'm asking all of you to help me find these gems! Please post up the best creations you have seen that feature asymmetry! I'll gather them all up in the Best of Asymmetry Sporecast! Help me find these asymmetrical beauties!

Also, If you want to post your own creations up, you're definitely welcome to do so!

Here's the one that inspired my own experiments using asymmetry. He got me started, so blame him!
War by G3NJI


These are two of mine.
Aeoldhuun & Kha'Adrath


I hope that everyone here will;
1) Help me find more asymmetrical creations
2) Be tempted and try it out yourself!

Some other asymmetry gems I've found which are in the Sporecast...

Zombiebura by Krusedullfaen


Mecha Reaper by Doomnova


Another one by G3NJI
Grave


And here's a asymmetrical sea vehicle, which technique to do it is unfortunately no longer possible after patch, supposedly...

Narval Boon by KitWarrior


Anyone else has nice asymmetric creations, or know of any? Please post them up here!

The link again, for the Sporecast!


Good luck and thanks, everyone!

That's cool, I made a zombie using the asymmetry mod but it goes over the complexity meter, uploaded to imageshack in case someone wants it:

Could we throw a link in here for people to get to the asym. mod?

Drop this into your data directory (the one with Spore_Game.package, etc) in your Spore installation directory.

It disables symmetry for all editors that have it enabled.

I started using the hack a few days ago, and now that i have the hand of the process needed to make stuff, i'll probably use asymmetry in a lot of my creations.  It's fun, and somehow tedious.

Several of my recent tidepool creatures use modest asymmetry, like these guys:

(You actually need to use the hack to may the flagella-tails symmetrical, unless you want a double tail)

But the Xeskul is my first completed ambitious use of Asymmetry:

 

You should be able to search for "+eleazar +asymmetry" to find them all, or at least the ones old enough to be included in searchs.  I'm not sure, but i think it is often a week or more behind... i often find via searches creatures i deleted days ago.
