Yeah, the email connected to my profile is one i check maybe twice a year.

Oh, and



Drive-by fan art! I call it: Quillaran Mauling. These guys are too awsome. 'Specially the various multicolored eyes.
There are two things I dislike about this. One is that I went overkill with the special effects. Two, I totally spaced the toothy tentacles. I realized right in the middle of coloring. Maybe I'll draw another so I can get it right.. >:l
Like a Quillaran gladiator or something. :D~

Ohyeah. If you want to see it clearer, and less jaggy, drag the picture into the url bar. Or save it and open it.

Probably not a Goat, either.

Thanks ink! For some reason I associate the old galaxy with the quarians, so I was sad when I couldn't find a picture of them.



On a slightly unrelated note, I found out how to display different sprites based on variables. So that means we can have different races for the captain based on the player's choice!

That reminds me, I really need to practise some facial expressions... Or I extort Gauph to do them for me. =_=

About RenPy, doesn't it get pretty confusing after a while?

All those choices...  @_@

Err, I think you mean the Quillarians.

Personally, I associate it with the Kazea, but hey, to each his own...

If by choices you mean multiple branches, well you can make additional script files. So you can divide big branches or different acts by making their own script files. It also helps to declare images in their own file, so they don't take away too much space. I found that the original script file is best used for declaring characters and variables and put everything else into their own files for convenience.

Well, I associate multiple races with the old galaxy. Kazea, Nauceans and Quillarians among them. I'm not sure why the Quillarians, honestly. They were never quite active in the RPs.

I started browsing the creature index for some races from ye olde days.

You could cross check your list with this one: http://www.getphpbb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=113&mforum=oviraptorworld

Not sure if those are all Old Galaxy creatures or not, but the last edit was in March, 2007.

Edit: Also, for all information Oifan-Umtag, I recommend using this instead of the forum. It's got all the information in one place.

I think the index is somewhat complete, at least when it comes to old galaxy races, but some threads don't have any pictures anymore and a few threads are even missing completely. ChaosCreature (creator of Baobas) had a habit of deleting his own threads after a while, which means I cannot use his creatures at all.

Thanks. I knew there were wiki-articles for some races, but I couldn't find them. At any rate, right now I'm just collecting pictures of the races so I can practise and do some concepts. :D

This'll be useful later on though.



Edit: Oh look, I did some scribbling in preparation for the game. You can call it concept art if you want.

I needed something to keep the paper from curling up for the photo. Plus I always have a die lying around for various purposes. >_>

Well, the Vis are hilariously easy to draw.

So... I went through the entire creature index and got 38 races. :|

Holy ****

Unfortunately, there weren't any pictures of the urshan left. Does anyone know where some are left? Otherwise I might have to try to contact Biocat.

I don't want to come across as bitchy, but the general RenPy talk should probably be done in its own thread. This thread is only for the game project. :)

There's a RenPy thread?

Also, I was kinda just surprised at what they did with it so I posted it here to see your thoughts on it as far as the game's concerned.
