I know it's kind of a late reaction, but...


Congrats on your seventh year, guys!  :)

So the Sagan 4 forum is down for a few days now. We are waiting on LadyM to find out what is wrong. In the meantime I wanted to use this thread for Sagan 4 discussion again until the forum gets back up.

Haha, this is what I get for trying to come back on! XD

Of course, current manager won't let anyone in the office (even when he isn't there) so currently no access to a scanner for drawing... but I could try to go back to my MS Paint style..?

Beyond that I've been spriting my own stuff lately in a nice, simple style, and have started spriting my old Sagan species, partially for the heck of it and partially because I have for years planned on doing everything I've ever come up with in the same style, and this seems like the easiest way to do that, ha.  Here's my Beach Shrotter, for example:

I heard people had trouble registering here so I made a topic in the speculative biology reddit.

Update: One problem is that the disc usage was maxed out so I had to upgrade and BUY more space. I no longer want to host and pay for this project so after this problem is fixed I'll be moving ownership over to Hydro.

I put a support ticket in to the host and hopefully they can identify the problem. Maybe it'll take some time for the disc space to be recognized. It's hard to believe this is still going for almost 10 years.

LadyM was able to get the forum back up. I am no sure for how long, so lets get those approved species to to the wiki while we have the chance.

I've been playing around with rigging and animation during my study abroad experience in Chicago (I'm returning to Brazil in August). For the final project in Advanced 3D Rigging we had to create a beast of burden, so I decided to model, rig and animate something based on my bubblehorns from Sagan 4. I combined a bunch of features of many of them and added some extra details in order to make it look like something you can ride in, like the seat on the shell. It took days to create the controls for each individual branch and mouth pieces in Maya, but I'm very pleased with the result.

I hope you enjoy! :)

What is the benefit of having a creature with those prehensile branches tamed or domesticated?

Maybe it can pick things up?  Maybe it looks cool?
Probably not a Goat, either.

More like it can smack whoever is riding it.

Maybe the rider is into that sort of thing.
