Hi LBPC, I'm new here and I thought I'd start here by letting everyone know my latest ideas. I was fiddling with some decorations today in my Pod and discovered that I could make some nifty looking furniture with them. Anyway, I'm going to post some pictures and I'd like some feedback on what you guys like and don't like. Thanks, and hoping for a warm welcome!

Wow, this is amazing!

First, let me welcome you to this site, you've certainly started off well. This is, I believe, the right forum, although I'm not completely sure since we haven't gotten a thread like this before.

OK, so, I was impressed when I saw this. The bed, the couch.... Imagine if you put this amount of detail into a level, that would be amazing!

You certainly have skill, keep it coming!

Thanks a lot! As for level making, I'm about 50% done one right now. I'll have pictures up when I get a little more finished.

Sorry to hear that. Have you ever tried getting your disc re-surfaced? I know some game stores have services where they microscopically cut off the bottom of a disc so that all the scratches are gotten rid of. Now, it can only be done several times per disc, but sometimes it's the answer to problems like those!

That's pretty cool! I might have to do that myself. Right now I've just got barnacles on the wall...

am not sure what it is but like it kinda looks like when u touch your computer screen or something and u see the finger print?
imagine that but very small xD

but i think its just a problem with the data because this happen to me before when i first got the game and i made my pods all nice then someone comes and ruin everything and maybe it got screwed up :S

even if thats the problem there arent many places like that in canada xD

Here's a pod I made based off of yours, Xenifus:

Wow, those are great! *steal, hehe* Now I feel kind of clever for coming up with this "trend". Great headboard on the bed, and I especially like the couch!

Haha! Great pod, I have a cool pod too, but it's no apartement, it's a split pod with a good and bad side, which was based off my avatars. (You can see them in my signature and avatar.

Wow, these are great! But don't you get paranoid about accidentally hitting that "Reset Pod Decoration" button?? As far as I remember there isn't even a confirmation screen, if you press X then it's all gone...

I'm never concerned because it's all fairly easy to remake, and I almost never hit Start when I'm in my own Pod anyway. So, crisis was pretty much averted!

Happened to me just this morning, the lot has disapeared. Not that it was complicated or anything, it just used some photos that I no longer have.

There needs to be a confirmation screen added, or a save option :D

I agree that you should be able to save your pod. My husband and friends have a nasty habit of absolutely destroying my pod after I get it looking all nice. Usually there are like 5,000 motors and hood ornaments and peacock feathers all over it by the time they're done. I swear, I can't have anything nice. :P

Xenifus

The unthinkable happened.

I reset my pod after clicking X too many times from inviting my friends to my pod... Luckily, it was an easy fix, and my pod was back to normal in about a minute!

I absolutely hate it when somebody does that to my pod. There definitely needs to be a save function...

Do you think you can coem to my pod saturday and help me decorate it My psn is my name.

I could, but if you want the kind of things I have, you need the MGS Level Pack, or else I won't be able to place the decorations in your Pod. I am able to improvise, though.

Alexxerth
04-04-2009, 03:40 AM
Actually i do have that pack. So can we meet up sometime tommorow?

I just did an attempt to make my pod a bit more like yours.

Because your pod is awesome.

@Alexxerth: Place a Utility Pack decoration to be used as a matress, and Straight Pipes and the Metal pieces (from the MGS pack) for the headboard and couch.

I made my pod like an icy cave. (I used a lot of teeth) But I really wish you could save your pod. (Mm?)

Nice work!

I'm rubbish with stickers so the pod is often bare, but I gave it a go.

Wow, I'm impressed. I really wish we could create objects for our pod using the editor, but I think you did a pretty good job of using the decorations to create furniture. Nice job.

Another nice addiction would for the decorations to be physically solid so we could stand on them, rather than in them.

Sweet pod!! I suck at making pod decorations, I just put in some hearted stickers and leave it for a while....
BTW how did you get the bed? Is it some kind of decoration I don't know about or what?

my friend made a pod like this, so i guessed i should too. now almost every pod is an apartment

I had my pod fully decorated but then a friend of a friend came in and defaced it so I had to reset and keep it bare ever since :(

I accidently cleared my pod... And it looked so nice! We need a confirmation screen on that.

Cool pod decoration idea! And yeah, I'm always paranoid of clearing my pod by mistake, I worked so hard on all that mess, and that "RESET POD DECORATION" button is so big!! :eek:
I hope Mm incorporates a save Pod feature, and while they at it, they could also add some silly physics based toys to play with in the Pod, so visiting Sackbuddies have something to do (instead of causing havoc and destruction to my pod ;)) while I'm loading up a level :cool:

Wow great pod!

Am I just imagining things or is the Black Mage from Merlin's Revenge?
