[Tool] The Heatlamp

Here we are again with a small release!

I was lurking on the Norn Nebula when Dragoler started talking about an agent they wanted to create. I thought it was a nifty idea, so I offered to create the code.

It’s the Heatlamp, an agent that allows you to set the Heat CA level of the room the agent is currently in, while when disabled it displays the current temperature in the room. When the temperature is high enough, the heater also acts as a portable incubator, speeding up the hatching process of nearby eggs. If the temperature is set to zero, eggs will be frozen and will not hatch.

The agent also has three pretty buttons with a norn, grendel and ettin face that, when enabled, make the agent emit Home Smells for these creatures.

The graphics are lovely! Just look at those happy creatures! 😀

(Artifically) Intelligent Choices #4

Surely I’m not the only player that encounters this, right? Right? Riiight?

Those stubborn eggs and the wonky timer on that egg layer. The grendels just want to live I guess. 😀

Enjoy this new comic. Woo!

Have you encountered similar annoyances when playing C3/DS? Or some weird quirks? Put them in the comments below, maybe I’ll draw them into a comic.

(Artifically) Intelligent Choices

Sometimes I feel like drawing comics. I’m not particularly good at drawing, but hey, that shouldn’t stop anyone from trying! 😀

Anyways, have a comic!

I’ll try to make more than this one, but no promises. Yep I know I should be coding, sssh, taking breaks is sometimes allowed too. 😛 It’s a game, it has to stay fun.

The comic I drew is totally inspired by this awesome and much-better-than-mine comic which was drawn by Cuil long, long ago, but only recently got posted over at the Norn Nebula Discord Server!

Awesome comic drawn by Cuil a very long time ago.

What’s not to love about these awesome cute maybe-not-so-intelligent creatures? 😀

Metaroom survey

Hello folks!

Things have come to life in the CCSF Discord. It looks like something is definitely gonna happen during the CCSF 2018. Yay!

I would love to actively contribute some content. I think I’m gonna try to make a blog post about something every day. Maybe I’ll do some wolfling runs and stuff, I don’t know yet. I’m sure looking forward to the CCSF either way!

Anyways, for one of my blog posts I thought it would be really neat to know what the current Creatures 3 / Docking Station players value in a metaroom. I like making metarooms, so I like knowing what you people like. 😀

I made a survey, please fill it in! It only takes 5 minutes and it’s for SCIENCE. I’ll blog about the results. Everyone wins. Really! 😀

^ Go go, fill it in! Thank you ❤

CCSF 2018 organization poll

 

Howdy! This blog has been quiet lately, but I haven’t stopped doing stuff!

Since the AlbianWarp project has reached a semi-usable state, I’ve been way too distracted with alphatesting and poking around with stuff. I occassionally code some stuff in between, but I haven’t gotten to any serious blogging yet. I have some almost-ready agents I should release sometime buuuuuuuuuuut

Back to the subject of this post! There’s a new survey for the CCSF 2018, created by the wonderful Layla. The survey asks about how you want the CCSF to be organized.

CCSF 2018 Organization Poll

>>>>>>   CLICK HERE FOR THE SURVEY  <<<<<<

The options are as following:

  • Organized by one coordinator
  • Organized by a coordinator pair or team
  • Organized by a committee led by a coordinator
  • Decentralized ( No coordinator, community run. )
  • Other:

 

Personally I’m really fond of the decentralized approach. This means people only have to decide on a date and the length of the CCSF, but other than that everyone should be free to do whatever they want. It’d be nice to have some kind of calendar where everyone can add their own events/blogposts/whatever so everyone is informed about all the events, and everyone can blog/twitter/make a website/post on CCaves/pin/tumblr/whatever they’re good at, so that the events reach a public that might not be reached otherwise by just a conventional website.

I can’t wait to see what kinds of awesome sparkly pretty stuff everyone would contribute. The CCSF discord is already going wild with ideas, love it!

Ham5ter/KeyboardInterrupt wrote up a “thought about a central hub” (which has been posted on the CCSF discord), you can find it here. I like it!

So. Yep.

Go fill in the survey. 😀
