Last week, the LittleBigPlanet Manual surfaced on the web. After reading everything, this is what Little Big Madness has to report.
So, basically, you can only create what they want you to. You can't create your own shapes for the game, only shapes already in the game or shapes you put together with another shape. You can't animate anything without using some tacked on lever or rig to make it move. This means everything will have a puppet like quality to it. You can't texture something, you can jsut put a sticker over something. How big can those be? Also, you are restricted to play the game before you even build a level? You then have to collect all those orbs to get new objects in the game? What is that? Why can't we just create our own and put them in the game, oh thats right you can't. Lame, man. Really lame. The more I learn about this game the less I want it.
Just the thought of building levels for a game before you learn how to play it, shows what a genius you are.
Isn't that what a tuturial is for? Why not toss one of those in? More over, why don't you explain to me and everyone else what fun is making your own level going to be now if you have to trudge through and complete B.s. task in order to get better stuff for your levels??? See, before we were all under the impression we could make our own content and now that isn't the case. That means you are using the game as a crutch to get more stuff for your levels and that means we won't have anything in the game or our levels they don't want us to have. We can't simply make an object, put it in motion and skin it how we want. We can't create enemies that move or anything. We can't create our own backdrops and settings, either. We are tied to the 5 layouts that are in the game. That is lame.
i think your over reacting a bit The shape feature, where you make shapes from other shapes can be very VERY powerful in the right hands. Forza had the same feature and people were about to create entire people with incrediable detail with it so i wouldnt call that a limitation As for texturing i kind of agree, espeically with the fact that you have to use the eyetoy to get your own stuff into the game, but if they allow you to paint and use the shape system then thats ok
If you think that using a set of basic shapes that you can resize, rotate and combine in any way you want is not being able to build your own content, who cares?
Can you please watch this video and then tell me again that you can't make your own shapes.
Your point about Forza is spot on, what some people were able to create with basic shapes was just amazing.
one thing I know that it's amazing
Preordered it last night. Can't wait for it!
in all honesty a sticker is a small decal texture done right you can create a weemless tiled texture yes its time consuming and yes id rather jump into photoshop and make textures that way but there nothing stopping it 3 levels before you can create....did you think thats maybe so you have a few materials andstuff to work from not to mention give oyu an idea of whats feasable animation its not meant to be sonic or mario with lots of stuff to kill its very charactorful and i bet you can do a lot of stuff to make the animations nice and clever im goin to get to play it this week so ill let oyu know
There are actually textures. Things like stone, wood, grass etc, it's all there. Whether or not this affects the base material's properties (ice slippery, metal heavy etc) remains to be seen
I need to stop reading these articles, the wait for this game is driving me insane.
Is it October yet?
Join the countdown, my friend.
on a serious note tho.. i didn't know that you have to finish the first 3 levels before you can enter the create mode.. aaw man.. thats unfair!!!
Halloween AND LBP in October = Awesome
playing 3 levels to teach you stuff without a tutorial.
with every new piece of info this game looks better and better :D
Great list, I thought that it was going to be a list of stuff we already knew but no. Great find :)
And recreate one of the classics? We could easily get 20 people together and pump out SuperMario Bros. 1 or 3.
Do you know how many people are going to make that? Be more creative, especially if this would be a group effort. Just pick a different classic. I won't be joining eitherway, I have plans for 1 "ripoff" level (no spoilers!), and the rest will be Certified (w/ the Official mfwahwah Seal of Approval) mfwahwah Brainchildren ^.^
wait! Lbp is a game? you mean I have to play it? Oh man no fair! I wanted to be able to find out what you can't do & complain about how not easy it is to create levels. What am I gonna do now?! Do I have to enjoy lbp? Siligon's over achieving concience.
Lol, spot on!
For me this article was more like "10 things you know about LittleBIGPlanet"
