Project 6014: Scavenger Hunt Game (demo spoilers).

Post by dczanik » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:27 pm

Alright. I'm starting a game here, and hoping people will have fun with it. Let's see how many of these bio-critters are in the game. There's a lot of these bio-aliens that I don't think anybody has encountered. So let's find them.

Rules are:
1. Find an alien not yet "documented"
2. Post an "in the wild" lander in-game screenshot. It must be a good pic of the alien. Multiple aliens can be in the screenshot. Tell us the Star system+Planet
3. I'll identify the Aliens, document all the aliens seen in the screenshot, and award you the points.
4. Only 1 point per alien. Once it's documented. That's it.
5. Those with the most points...wins! It's nothing but bragging rights, but it does help me out with the game.



I'm giving them unofficial nicknames in parentheses to make them easier to reference.

The Hit List:

A:
Life AA (Echinosol)- Alpha Canis Minoris 1:

I take it us P6014 programmers are not allowed in your contest, hmmh? *Swinging one's fingertip wildly at the infamous 'debug key'!* :ugeek:

I'm in for negative points !
I'd like to point out that, unless something went very wrong, nobody will ever find U, V, Z nor ZZ in P6014. Also, you forgot W and WW.

Good hunting people !

Hmmm... nobody seems interested in playing. Bummer. :'(-smf

If you don't know how: To do a window capture in windows, hit ALT-PRINT_SCRN (alt + print screen keys)
Then go into Windows paint, and click Edit, Paste.

You should have something that looks like this:

Which isn't in Project 6014 but in UQM it's on Epsilon Gruis, Planet 1.
But if something like this were in Project 6014, I'd give a point for LifeU.

I'll totally go find some, once I've shifted from 'design parser' mode to 'get a feel for the space of the game' mode. Is it... urgent?

No. Not urgent. I thought it would be fun, and would actually be useful to check for any graphics or animation problems. I have no idea what some of these look like outside of seeing them in our animation tool.
