View Full Version : Life-like Creature

I'd like to set a challenge to you guys. Now this may be difficult but I think we can do it.

I want to see some creatures. But I want to see how realistic we can make creatures. I've seen alot of creatures and they all look rather mechanical. Let's attempt to break our creative barriers and create realistically moving animals.

Now you can all do different creatures but if you discover a great technique post it!

salieri has a great creature leg tutorial so you should use that to help

This would be awesome as a contest. Even if you can't give prizes out, it would be fun to enter. No player has REALLY captured a really life-like creature. Most come close but they still have that robotic movement and look in them.

Oh yea the new creature eyes may help with this as they bring life into ur creatures face
im probably going to go for a dog or sthing. wagging tail, sitting position, running, barking with head up. ha ha i want it as realistic as possible

^^ This sounds like an awesomely fun challenge! I'm very, very, very busy right now, but as soon as I've gotten that taken care of I'd really like to try make something :D. Great idea ^^!

I think that is quite a cool idea. I've always done quite basic creatures. I'll publish a level, I'm gonna make a goldfish!

hmm i wonder if it would be possible to "animate" using emittersYou betcha. Teebonesy did it in his epic The Movies level. Definitely play it if you have the opportunity, or watch it on YouTube. There are 3 different animated parts - the first one is around 2:50.

WHOA! That 'the movies' looks amazing!

I might just give this realistic creature thing a go...
