Merry Creatures Christmas

Hello Creatures world! I've been away for a while. I know. Life has been somewhat demanding, (with four part-time jobs simultaneously while also attending University. Good times!)

Anyways, as it is the holidays, I have found some free time to play Creatures. And so, I've decided to make a holiday COB for C1.

Something I've always wanted in C1 was weather. Of course, this really is a terrible idea, as C1 can only handle so many objects at once and it will either crash or prompt you with polite error messages should you exceed this limit. However, my desire for snow had also reached its limit, and so I present to you the Winter Mushu.

This Mushu loves the snow, and he will perform a happy little snow dance for you! While he's dancing, snowflakes, (sprites courtesy of C2) will fall from the sky in the general area around Mushu only. This will allow you to have a nice, contained little area of weather.

If left out in the snow, creatures will have their Boredom and Need for Pleasure decreased. However, they will also slowly become colder, so it's probably not a good idea to let them stay in the snow too long.

You can make it stop snowing by picking Mushu up and dropping him again, (he will go to sleep). Snowflakes will only spawn while Mushu is dancing, not while he is sleeping or being held.

And yes, I do know there is a snow-storm COB included in one of the Christmas packs. But really, I just wanted an excuse to make something dance.

Winter Mushu can be downloaded from the Critter section at Jessi's Cobs, or alternatively, right here.
