I know I’ve never really posted a blog entry about my CreatureLink creatures in the past but I was just so excited to get a pair of geats this time, I had to do it! Besides, I spent a significant part of my day adding tags to all of my previous blog posts and I miss having nurture worlds as a result.
Anyway, let’s get this show on the road.
With just two of them I didn’t feel any need to go any bigger than the Docking Station. If I needed more variety I’ll just add metarooms. 🙂
I stuck him by the Robot Toy as a reward and he immediately start napping amongst the Botanoids and Techno-Organic Carrots. Because of his genetics, Heavy Metals are of no concern for me.
She stayed at the bottom level of the Meso because I opted to give her a chance to rest and once she felt better, she took to eating seeds.
I moved Chromel to the bottom level as well so that they could meet and soon they were eating and advising eachother on their problems. They were pretty quiet and didn’t seem to have formed opinions of each other yet. I suppose I could ask but I wasn’t prepared for the inevitable express loops that would follow, so I opted to let it happen on its own.
I took a few minutes to re-learn Photoshop so that I could edit pictures like I used to and they kept pretty quiet. I kept a careful eye on them but they spent most of their time eating and sleeping. I did notice that they have an age gap. Shibuichi is about 22 minutes younger than Chromel! I hoped this wouldn’t cause a problem since they’re advertised to have somewhat short lifespans.
I did notice another problem, though. They can’t seem to use the lifts in the Meso. I don’t know whether it’s an issue with the lifts themselves or whether they’re just too big but I felt I had to add Elevines. Sadly, those didn’t seem to work perfectly either. Shibuichi did manage to get one to work once but poor Chromel didn’t have the same luck.
They ate and slept for a while and I did other things while I listened to them in the background.
Then suddenly, Chromel got the Elevines to work. Then they were both on the top level! Neither seemed especially interested in the mechanical plants I installed for them, sadly.
Finally, Chromel became our first Adult at 56 minutes old. Soon with a little encouragement, Shibuichi and Chromel were kissing on the bottom level and eating together. They still didn’t talk much but I was pretty convinced they liked each other. I would have to find out more about them later, though.
