I do not have it, i only got to try it at E3. And the Nauceans crashed before i got to do that. However the Wolly Gruntrerium walks just like a centaur. And his babies tail were hoving behind their butt. It was funny.

Thats a great idea! Only we should make the book about all the races here that were (and are.) good/great/kickass/superb/Etc...! Hope my race gets to do some stuff, as soon as they're done the First Encounter they can start doing stuff.

What will you do?

Good new after send one right now i got an e-mail back with the e-mail for Caryl Shaw. Woot! Time to write her. Note she warned me that they are working on the game thus screenshots are not high on the priority list.

We will see it when it is good and ready.
No need to rush it, that just makes things worse.

I decided to model a planet with buildings, trees and animals on it.
Bumping terrain on a globe with a coastline and without any heightmap was easier than I thought (not using a displacement map like this test for more flexibility in detail level).
Placing cities and 1/1000 times as big objects on each other also works. (this was just a horribly looking test if its possible at all)
Modeling rivers that flow downwards on a globe sloping between hills with a low polygon count is a different story.
Gotta start with rivers, beaches and key points next time or it will just look too ugly
But its a very cute sandbox.

Tell us about the Mountain Tribe's Aohoshi religion, please.

Here ya go Caltrop ;)



Here is the Mountain tribe at the shrine of Aohoshi. Aohoshi is the big brother of Nauceanica and Au. He is an Ocean Tribe by race but is worshiped by both the Ocean and Mountain Tribe (some cave tribe too). Those that worship Aohoshi believe he is the true creator of all the universe but was too modest to say so and let his little sister and brother bicker over which one of them did. Aohoshi encourages peace and harmony. Aohoshi is represented by the Blue Giant in the sky which is from the Neighboring solar system and not even their own. The home star is Au the red dwarf and if Aohoshi was no there then there would not be enough heat to warm the planet of Nauceanica.

In the Mountain tribe tradition they carve huge wooden sculptures of Aohoshi as well as smaller lesser gods. This is just the larger of them. But each yurt has a small wooden idol with a mini-shrine in which they pray to at noon when Aohoshi is highest in the sky. Wen visiting the shrine they sent down a bowl on inscents and bow their heats with arms out wide. The candles in each oral tentacle on the sculpture are kept lit all the time and are changed out each day. The candles are made from the fat of woolly gobblehorns. Durring the winter solstice they roast a woolly gobblehorn in honor of Aohoshi, it is rather like Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one. They share gifts have a big feast, dance, sing and play music.

I'm getting a more eastern China/tibet feeling.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
