Create a Maelstrom Monster!

Posted Thursday, June 23, 2011 in General News by Inventrius

Greetings, Nexus Force. I come bearing a challenge!

The Maelstrom is a powerful entity, but we have no reason to fear it. Duke Exeter may encourage you to shield your eyes from chaos, lest you be blinded, but I believe you should meet its gaze and stare right back. It is only by studying our enemy that we can learn its weaknesses.

One such weakness is its lack of creativity. The Maelstrom cannot itself create – it is forced to plunder creative inspiration from others to build the monsters we face. Be warned – if the Darkitect discovers your fear of snakes he could easily combine it with nightmares of a shark, spider, and Chihuahua. Before long the Nexus Force could find itself facing a legion of dark Arachnasharnakehuahuas – spider-legged, purple monsters with sharks for bodies and snakes for hair that never stop yapping. Send in your best design of a Maelstrom-infested monster to Professor Brickkeeper in the Creation Lab and he’ll pass it over to Wisp Lee and his Paradox scientists for experimenting.

It is possible that the top-hatted scarecrow known as the Darkitect has already stolen our nightmarish ideas, and is brewing up a fresh batch of new soldiers in a cauldron of bubbling Maelstrom. If that is true, then the designs you send in will teach our scientists just how to smash whatever dark, twisted nightmare creatures the Nexus Force will eventually face.

Good luck, adventurers! And remember – do not fear the chaos.

– Vanda Darkflame

Draw or build your design of a Maelstrom monster to the Creation Lab between June 24, 2011 and June 30, 2011 and you’ll be entered for a chance to win an astronomical prize package of unique in-game shirts, valuable in-game gems, and LEGO City and LEGO MBA sets!

To enter, either build your Maelstrom monster using LEGO Digital designer, one of your properties, or real bricks, or draw it using whatever artistic tools you wish (pen and paper, pastels, mosaics, interpretive dance, et cetera). Once it’s complete, go to the Creation Lab challenge entitled “Create a Maelstrom Monster.” When you see the challenge, upload a photo or screenshot of your unique Maelstrom minion to us for judging. It’s as easy as that!

You may enter as many screenshots as you like, but can only win once. Make sure to upload your submission into the Creation Lab before the June 30, 2011 deadline! Once the deadline is up, 20 winners will be chosen by the LEGO Universe team.

iterview with mads purp by (lucky) ninewells (who i think nearly won the brick giving competition)

there is it

Hello Adventurers!

This week, we have a very special interview for you all. The LEGO Universe Community Team has invited a very talented builder, NineWells, to interview one of our very own Developers, Mads Purup. Mads specializes in the ever important building aspect of LEGO Universe. We hope you enjoy this special Player conducted Developer interview!

Interview with Mads Purup, conducted by NineWells

Hello and welcome LEGO enthusiasts. Builders, battlers, those who do both and those who wish to know more about building in-game using the provided tools and Behaviors, but are unsure of where or how to ask. Here, is the answer. On our very own LEGO forums/message boards.

I am known in-game by many character (Minifigure) names on several Servers but most commonly as NineWells. Today, having been given the opportunity, I will be acting as the voice for our building community and speaking with Build Designer/ Dev (Developer) Mads Purup, one of the many Designers responsible for what goes right, and sometimes wrong, in our building adventures within in-game Properties in LEGO Universe.

Mads, first and foremost, thank you for taking time out of your work schedule to speak, on behalf of the design team, with our Community today.

Q: So Mads, aside from the really cool name, who are you?

A: Thanks! I was born in Denmark and that is where my unusual name is from. When I was just three years old I got my very first LEGO set. It was a little, red tractor with 21 bricks and from that moment I was hooked. As I grew older my brick collection grew larger and larger and soon the tractor turned into intergalactic space stations, thieving pirate ships, mighty castles, Minifigure metropolises and eventually into crazy LEGO MINDSTORMS robots. I never stopped building because I knew that one day I would work for LEGO and help invent new amazing toys. When I was 20 I got the job! And then one day I was asked if I wanted to come to Colorado and work on the biggest LEGO game ever. I didn’t need to think. I just said: “YES! When can I start?”. Now I live in Colorado and work on LEGO Universe. I am a designer by education and a Minifigure by heart.

Q: What is it that you do with the LU design team concerning Properties?

A: Every day I build on my own Property trying out all the different tools you guys get to build with, so I am always thinking about how we can make them better. When I find something I would like to improve, or I hear that you builders in-game would like to see certain things changed, I talk to the programmers about how it can be done. I also work on coming up with brand new ideas on how we can make building more intuitive, and most of all more fun!

Q: Outside of designing and programming Properties, do Developers build or test builds to check limits within Properties that will be released live for Players?

A: We have a dedicated Property tester who spends his whole day building to see if he can break the limits. When that happens, our Build Programmers repair it before it released. We cannot catch everything before a release, and that’s why feedback from the Players is invaluable!

Q: This question is for the Players that like adding security systems to their builds. When a builder creates a second floor and adds a Maelstrom enemy spawn Behavior to a suspended model within that floor, the Maelstrom actually spawns on ground floor. Is this the intention? As we have seen enemies react to clipping in places such as the horsemen at Cavalry Hill (they could be programmed to descend at angles and just appear to be reacting to clipping?)

A: Currently, we are at the first stage of Behaviors. We did not have time to do everything we wanted, but know that we have great plans for Behaviors! It was also important for us to see how you Players actually use Behaviors on your Properties, so we can develop the Behavior system in a direction that makes sense for you!

To the specific questions about enemy spawn Behavior (and let me just express that it is so cool to hear that Behaviors are being pushed to its limits by talented builders out there!), Maelstrom-infected creatures are not that smart, really. But in the future, I’m sure the Maelstrom will learn to navigate vertically, as well as they do horizontally.

Q: Advanced builders like to push the limits of a Property. In your words or possible suggestions to Players, what are the limits in Properties, i.e. amount of models, Behaviors, size, etc. that can be placed or added to keep a Property running smoothly?

A: That is a very good question, and I would love to give you definitive answers, but there are so many factors that play into the limit of current LEGO Universe Properties. However, I have 3 pieces of advice for improving performance on Properties:

1. Cover studs with smooth tiles.
2. Limit your use of transparent bricks. They are ‘expensive’, performance-wise. They do look cool, though…
3. This is a bit harder; If you have many small models, you can benefit from grouping your Models with the Group Tool in Build Mode. If you are doing stuff like for instance a tile floor, grouping will greatly enhance performance on your Property.

Q: This brings us to Behaviors. What causes Behaviors to become a negative experience in builds when Players visit in groups? (clipping and flush models aside as we will get to that point soon)

A: Designing a multiplayer experience can be a challenge, believe me! If a Player is already on your Property, any is halfway through your Property flow, and the another Minifigure decides to drop by, then that is going to create some new challenges for your Property flow. Multiplayer experiences are hard, but it is doable, so see it as a challenge to design that experience well. New multiplayer Behaviors are also on the table, further down the track.

Q: Hinges are excellent ways to create designs and features such as open doors within builds. Along with hinges we have gears, strings and chains in game exactly as we would have with our sets. Any chance of having a hinge grid added to the build mode UI that measures the degree of angles or of making the chains, strings and gears usable in models? Such as programming the 16m or 30m chains to work within the hinge tool to allow the links to become draped.

A: As you might have notice, we actually have something like what you describe in the newest version of LDD – LEGO Digital Designer. It a more advanced hinge tool, involving angles and multiple hinges, and as such covers more of the functions you describe, though not them all. We are currently working on accessing what it would take to make this work on LEGO Universe Properties.

Q: In conclusion, what is the future of Properties and builders in LEGO Universe?

The Maelstrom doesn’t surrender that easily – the future holds more enemies on Properties! Overall, I can say that the build experience will be constantly evolving, with improvements to already existing features and new exciting additions – this is just the beginning for building in LEGO Universe!

Specifically, we are also currently looking at things like larger sized Properties and the ability to place models on your Property with the click of a mouse. We are also working on a system to allow you to fly to any Property from any Property launch pad! For example, if you’re in Forbidden Valley and you want to work on your Avant Grove Property, you can get there simply to going to the Forbidden Valley Property launch pad!

Also, for those who are using Behaviors to bring their properties to life, we are working on some pretty exciting, new Behavior blocks. With these blocks you can add simple logic and use variables to make your property even smarter and more challenging. This can open up a whole different level of fun and creativity with Behaviors and Properties. Of course, we are still working on all of these different ideas (and more!). We can’t say when they will be ready yet, but there is a sneak peek at what the future of Building holds!

To Mads Purup and the Design Team, Programmers, and Moderators of LEGO Universe: please allow me to thank you for your time and efforts on behalf of the entire building community and all the Players of LEGO Universe. LEGO bricks are what inspire Imagination. Building is using those bricks to lay the foundations of what lies within your own Imagination.
