@balsacat, @Kittyodoom and @Wiese2007:
Ok, now it’s time to talk seriously. I want you guys to team up with me, 'cause I have this project of a cat race myself too. The temporary name is Purrfect Villagers! <3
Speaking of cats, there’s a mod called Wild Settlers, of cute wolfs. Their team mention that whey want to do another race of wilds, and I assume that they are planning to do big cats, like tigers. So my ideia is to portrait only little tamed cats to avoid any problems.
As features, I was thinking of customize this:
1 - fur color, and add stripes and big splashes as also as a complementary fur feature.
2 - muzzle shape, color and size.
3 - nose shape, color and size.
4 - tail shape, color and size.
5 - eyes shape and color.
6- Paws patterns.
With this 5 design features, I think we can cover a lot of possibilities of design of cats.
There’s two more things:
7 - I’m considering that as “hair”, we can do bangs, and also ponytails for the lady cats, and funny mustaches for the gentlemen cats. I dunno how you may feel about it, some may think its wierd. Oh well…
8 - After saying that I’m pro-mustaches-on-cats, may sound strange that I don’t want they to have wear clothes. The thing is that I think they would be so much cute to see their fur patterns on their backs, and also get they to be more like the bunny race models. But I would be totally fine if they have to wear clothes. I’ll not be the one having to walk around 100% covered on fur AND fabric, and feeling little eletric shocks. XD
For the mod’s future, I don’t want it to be just a cosmetic thing, like the current status of the Wild Settlers (that by the way, the models are adorable beyond words, and OMG they have tails!!). I want it to show up like Ascendency and RC do, right in the menu selection. It’s a dandy wish? I dunno. WS team said that they are also planning to do it so.
My plan include to call @BrunoSupremo to brainstorm with us about a custom map for them, with:
9 - custom buildings that dialogue with the ideia of a cat race (I hope Radiant Team evolves the building modeling a little bit, so I can elaborate better this idea).
10 - Custom plants, like catnip, and add mouses and geckos as new critters.
Ok, now you can call me dandy. I blame my 8 cats for this. XD
