2019-10-31 Animal Poses
#1
Animal Poses
Posing of the bodies of the new animals is nearly complete. It took longer than expected. This can only be seen in primeval world, at the moment.

A few small items remain before players can start using gen4 animals as avatars. That would likely be ready by this time next week.

17+ Warning
Some may have noticed a new 17+ warning. The animals of SoH are completely computer generated, not at all derived from real 3D models of humans, no more detailed than a puppet or a raunchy cartoon. However, those who question why the 17+ warning is necessary may want to view the following link.

17+ Warning. Pornographic. Do not open this link if you do not want to see it.

After you finish deciding that Haxus has lost his blinking mind, consider the possibilities. Instead of catering to a potentially child audience, story lines in SoH can take on dramatically adult themes. Don't worry, I have no intention of making porn with SoH. It is just one of the many situations that can develop in the Hazeron universe.

This is a defining moment for SoH, at least in terms of who the audience is expected to be. Now I can stop cringing when my grandson wants to play. Instead, I can hold up the 17+ warning as a shield.

Asteroid Warning
Stations and cities with sensors will now report asteroids in the event log, if they are detected within sensor range. Observatories now report asteroids in the event log, starting at extreme range in the solar system. Asteroids known to be on a collision course with a world will cause an event log alert, which makes the icon look different in the city report tree.

Bugs were fixed. Lots of little details related to posing and animating gen4 bodies were finished. I'm late for a meeting and I can't really think of anything else right now. I'll update this post if I think of anything.

This makes me feel better for sure. Need to make sure information is given to players, and this is a good start.

For those interested in helping, I started a wiki page for the asteroid event.

You warned me, and I still watched it.
Sometimes I say something profound and intellectual, but most times, I'm just an idiot; but hey even a broken clock is right twice a day!

“Sometime after” is a good way of putting it. The animals were a big item; Steam just wasn’t an option with all male-looking creatures. Nobody would have taken this thing seriously. Now there’s a chance.

There are no other big items on my todo list, big enough to be prerequisites to a Steam release anyway. Vehicle designer and item designer would be nice but not mandatory. They can be upgraded later, like everything. Plants? Another biggish item that can be upgraded along the way.

A bunch of time needs to be spent buffing and polishing. The blitz of recent changes caused some collateral damage. With the current state of gen4 animals reaching a nice stable place, we can enter a consolidation phase of bug fixing and finishing loose ends. It is a rewarding phase because stress associated with nagging problems goes away, replaced by calming stability.

Gen4 animals need a lot of work to thoroughly finish, if that is even possible. When they’re done enough, they will begin to appear as wild animals in the environment. That is when the gen3 animals can go away, except their heads, which continue to grace many walls and thrones; I have a large collection of my own.

Very dramatic approach. Sex is an interesting theme for space operas

The real question is what will Haxus do when his grandson is 17?
