Hydro @ E3
« on: May 11, 2006, 05:50:29 pm »
Well my visit to E3 was exhausting. First I had trouble finding where to get my badge. Then I was told to fill out an application so I did, but then they told me to fill it out on the computer. Then the badger maker did not work and they almost forgot to attach the chip (in which I somehow lost during the day). Then waited in line to get in and once I got in I took a video of the EA booth, then stood in line for Spore. Watched the demo without Will Wright then at the end he snuck in a I told him who I was, but then had to sit though another presentation cause he was doing it. At the end I got to shake his hand and that was it. They kicked me out and sent me to the VIP room.

In the VIP room I waited and met Maxis peoples and could not have a video. However I was allowed to take pictures of little clay models of creatures. After the wait I was allowed to play with the creature editor with Caryl Shaw. In which I tried to make a Naucean. But I used some parts that were not finished and broke the model!! Thus I tried again with my Wooly Grutatherium and did it super fast before they kicked me out. Caryl Shaw said shewould e-mail me a picture of my creature(s). As for questions I really did not get to ask very much. It was rushed and they keep to busy to think. I did learn that many parts are not fixed yet such a tentacles (which I broke). And  its much easier to make a creature on the fly than it is with a set plan to follow. All in all I did mange to give them my resume with my e-mail on it ;) (sneaky me). And you can all dissect the videos and pictures I have for info. All I can say is Maxis is good to keep you distracted so you don’t ask too many questions.

I am disappointed I did not get an interview with Will Wright or an autograph but I was glad to meet part of the Maxis team and see what the editor is first hand. All I can describe it as is clay. Cause it has a much different feel than say other 3D programs like Maya or 3DS. In fact I was having trouble using it because I am so use to those other programs. Will makes it look easy. But of course I think it was harder because I had something in mind I wanted to make rather than just playing and making something new.

Thanks for the quick update.  You missed a lot of videos and info while you were there, particularly the 2007 release from WW.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

Ah well I kind got the just of that because of all the stuff they still had to put in. They have alto done but so much to go to make it work. In short asking for the demo would have been disappointing because it has many bugs. Such as a person ahead of me's creatures head twitched funny. And of course my Naucean's tentacles kept making more tentacles as you moved it on the head. Also i did not see any Naucean specific parts. The foot i thought was acully a hoof and the mouths were all basic.

Course if they ever need a beta tester they have my resume ;) I will be happy to break Spore any day *laughs*

Yes! It was worth the money as well as seeing E3 for the fisrt time. I did not find Steve but i did see my freind from Square Enix. Also i could not find RealmRPGer even though i called him while there.

Hydro, you have truly sacrificed yourself for the cause. Your courage and editor-breaking skills are truly appreciated by all of us.

But that doesn't matter if you don't post the videos and pictures! I need Spore! GRRRRR!
Yes. Of course.

Congrats on getting into E3, and I'm not sure if I'm right but isn't there another day to get to!?
