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! 😀

Metaroom Appreciation Survey

^ Go go, fill it in! Thank you ❤

[meta] Testing Room

Just skip to the bottom if you’re only here for the download.

While I was lurking in the Discord channels, someone mentioned Randoms Room. I remembered having fond memories of using that room, since it was so versatile.

There is a small issue though: the rooms inside the metaroom stretch from left to right and thus cannot be “divided” into multiple parts. So if you want to keep a norn in this specific place you have to use a stopperplant or freeze the creature or… figure out something else. Changing the doors between the rooms won’t work because there aren’t any.

I CANT FIX DIS WITH MAGIC WORDS WHAT I DO

I started chatting with xRAINxOFxBLOODx about this issue and decided to create another “testing room” where there’s a bit more variety in room shapes.

xRAINxOFxBLOODx provided the beautiful background for this metaroom. Here it is:

Pretty, right? The room spans 4 floors, of which the upper floors are divided into 2 or 3 compartiments.

As a fun little extra, there’s the option to toggle the room doors so they have a permeability of 100, 50 and 0. A permeability of 50 only allows some things through.

It’s a bit similar to Randoms Room as in it’s just a plain room: no CA, no lifts, no doors, no resources. Just a different lay-out.

Anyways, without further ado, have a download!

[Meta] Other Lone Shee Ark

Download OLSA v0.6 here

This is a metaroom for Docking Station: the Other Lone Shee Ark.
It features a volcano, desert, jungle, ice cave and greenhouse.
Even though this is an alpha release there shouldn’t be any bugs, so if you get one please contact me on here.
If you upgrade from an earlier version, you may have to remove the earlier ols_help.catalogue files prior to injecting.

This metaroom does not work in C3 standalone.

This is the first metaroom I’ve ever developed. Any comments/critique? Please shoot 🙂
