When I read further about it, they don't really seem to allow you to use any real modelling tools, as I didn't see any support for various 3D model formats that the major programs use. A lot of the characters I've seen look like many of the body parts were made out of just stacking 3D balls into eachother to make a crude shape, which made me kind of unsure about the kind of tools they offer in it as well. :shock:

Otherwise it might have been interesting to make a cool avatar to run around with. :(


I'd have to say, though, these two have done a mighty job of creating some great-looking models, considering what they had to work with. Foxfire's is pretty sexy, and Star is just plain adorable. It may be limited, but they've done a lot with it. Nice work. :)

I must ask--I'm assuming these characters are all standard height amongst some prop "buildings" set up in a certain area. Is there any way to mod your character to actually be smaller? It'd certainly enhance the illusion of there were little people running around in your play city. I've heard that people have done a lot with SL's limited engine, so I wonder if such a thing is possible. If so, I'm signing up!

It's like these old school video games RPGs where your character sprite is as wide as the streets. XD

Yeah I wasn't suggesting they didn't do a good job. Just more so complaining about the fact that I had to ditch the idea of joining a while back when I found out I couldn't do it the way I had wanted to when I first heard about it. :shock:

As far as I know it's more like a chat on steroids. Theres not a hell lot of gameplay in this "game".


Yeah it's mainly alot of chat.

Yes though I have made a macro version of Sapphire it's a bit buggy though since the overide was designed for a mech instead of a character.
There are alot of tinies on the other hand[avatars about 3ft tall] they're reasonably common though they always look chibi like cause they're compressed avatars. There has only been one 1inch avatar I've seen to date , it was rather ugly and a bit buggy too. I would have liked to have gotten the script for that so I could make better looking ones.<.< The best I've been able to do is make a tiny avatar mech and put a little driver inside to give the impression there's a really small fur avatar.

Not possible the city is an item and I'm not the owner of it. :wink: Best thing I can suggest is there's one of my vendors in the furnation skymall that has a minature city for sale , though granted mines not as good looking as Stars.>.<

Kick ass, someone made a city to stomp in!

I made a much smaller city where the buildings come maybe up to one's chest and you can kick them around. They smoke too when they fall over so as you stomp the city, huge clouds of smoke rise around you.

But this is way cooler. All that remains to be added it people and cars. Would be cool if you could code the people to spray blood when stepped on and cars to make crunching/car alarm noises and such. Maybe also code it to play a looping background of panic and screaming when you stomp through a particular area. I could probably do such, I'm getting pretty good at the scripting on that game :)

Star and VonFoxFire were kind enough to let me run about on the street below them while they posed tonight. I escaped with my camera intact, so that means you get photos! :)
