I want to talk a little about a level that I made in the Online Create Beta, now that I’m able to. I haven’t blogged about anything in a long time, but now that I’m back, I’d really like to talk about this one.
Most people made extremely huge levels in the beta, but, convinced that we wouldn’t be able to keep anything, Team CuzMorgKappatiers decided to make wacky, zany levels.
There were 3 in the series of crazy levels: The Evil Castle of Death and Stuff, Grab the Yellow Things, and the level I’m about to talk about - The Three Flamigos.
It all came about when Ccubbage, NinjaMicWz, Larry and I were taking apart story objects and putting them back together in weird ways. Ninja had taught me earlier that day how to dissolve a portion of a story object and keep the parts that I needed. We began doing experimentation on Rocket Cheetahs, but soon, it moved to Flamingos.
From what I remember, the Flamingo story object isn’t even used in any of the levels. People often forget it exists, much like the Zebra from the Savannah levels. It didn’t take much to make this abomination possible. A winch was added by NinjaMicWz, and several other modifications were done by Ccubbage and Larry.
It was completely goofy, but what we got in the end was the most stable vehicle I’ve ever seen. It doesn’t tip, it works in water, and it only breaks if it falls from very high. If it does fall over, it will immediately right itself after flailing around madly on the floor for a while.
Anyway, here it is in action. ^_^
