Creature Parts
« on: March 31, 2006, 12:04:22 am »
Will the creature parts be customizable, such as the grippers, fins, mouths and eyes?
I know each part had its own 'handles' which could be modified, but the number of parts in the GDC 2005 video were limited.

Do you think there will be an editor just for parts or come with these parts already made?
(sorry if this has been discussed before, couldn't find it)

I'm sure that the parts are pre-made, but you can probably modify them a bit, to fit you're imagination, with those "handles", and there's probably gonna be a lot of parts in the final version, but that's just a guess. Though, I never really understood the whole head thing, is that fully customizable?

We know that you'll be able to rotate and scale the parts that come with the game.  I'd imagine fully customisable parts won't be available till someone creates a hack/mod for the game.  I wonder who will start up

A Part editor as a sort of meta-editor or editor editor? Sweet.

I can't really imagine a parts editor, since the game already has to know how to use each part.  If you change the part the usage might not be practical (imagine taking half a claw away and still expecting it to pinch).  But I'm willing to bet that you won't be limited as to wear things must go (ie. grippers must go on limbs, limbs must leave the body proper) and therefore you could probably use the tools as they are to create most anything you can think of in terms of parts...

That's my assumption/wish.
