I finally got a chance to try out a new update for C3/DS by Geek2Nurse, which I have been really very excited about. This update alters the Bluebell and Starflower plants that come in C3, and is available in the Agents Downloads section of CreaturesCaves.
It is rather adorable watching your creatures walking around with a big, happy flower. The most important thing about this, though, is that it makes it very easy to customize other Metarooms! Like the Biodome.

I thought I would post about the Mushroom Bug as well, now renamed Nannybug. It is actually very close to completion, and is residing in that delightful testing-and-tweaking stage. You may notice that the critter is a tad bit smaller than it was initially. As much fun as it was having a legion of giant creepy mushy-bug-things, it wasn't remarkably practical, as they kind of got in the way. So I now introduce to you the much smaller, more compact, more efficient Nannybug.
There are nine different variations of the Nannybug, and is determined by what you feed to your bug. The current list of foods and effects is as follows:
Honey - Hunger Decrease/Starch Increase (ORANGE)
Alcohol - Boredom Decrease/Need for Pleasure Decrease (PURPLE)
Tomato - Increase Sex Drive (RED)
Ugly Tomato - Decrease Sex Drive (RED/YELLOW SPOTS)
Feverfew - Pain Decrease (GREEN)
Morning Glory - Exhaustion Decrease (DARK BLUE/YELLOW SPOTS)
Coffee - Sleepiness Decrease (BROWN)
Gentian - Coldness Decrease (LIGHT BLUE)
Campanula - Hotness Decrease (LIGHT BLUE/YELLOW SPOTS)
Like my other COBs, the Nannybug will be fed by dropping him onto various foods/drinks. Plants and such will grow back after being eaten, though slightly faster than normal for your convenience.
As mentioned before, this COB is primarily intended for the care of special needs creatures, or severe illness. As it injects nutrients and chemicals into your creature automatically, it can and will affect your creature's ability to learn properly. Of course, they can also be used for population control just because... well, why not?
In the case of Eliza, they are being used to improve her quality of life, as she cannot eat, walk, interact with objects, or wake up if she falls asleep. Although Science Kit injections can keep her alive, the Nannybugs can also keep her happy (with dancing!) and greatly improve the quality of her life.
