So, I’ve been postponing this moment for a while now, maybe even for a good reason, but that doesn’t really matter. The thing is, I really, really want this to be finished and I hope there are people that also do, so I’ve come to ask for help - I currently don’t have enough time to work on it all by myself, plus process is halted due to my lack of animation skills. Anyway, if you wish to help me in any way, you can either tell me what you think about this idea in general and suggest ideas, or send me a DM if you want to assist in more specific and technical way.
So, what is this addon about you ask? Well it is about somewhat bigger and more mobile, yet still hefty fatties. I got this idea mainly because of all the art I’ve seen and the fact that original SBBF doesn’t feature anything like this. I’ll list my current ideas on this here:
- First of all, those fatties can walk (yeah great job Captain Obvious), but I’ve also intended for there to be either “normal”, though much higher jumps, or charged jumps to give our fatties the mobility they always deserved.
- The second thing I thought of is the way of how you can “unlock” or enter this stage - either through GUI, through normal weight gain (after the blob stage respectively) or through eating a refined product that can be crafted from a rather rare alien fruit that can be found in any surface biome from base game, except for moons and barren.
- Third point is about special abilities that the walking fatties will have - charged jumps, wall-breaking bash (deals damage to blocks rather than breaking them instantly and therefore will have trouble breaking harder blocks due to long recharge time) and also seismic stomp. In terms of game balance, those abilities will be outweighed by downsides in form of much more limited mobility indoors, as well as lower health than the blob has. All those abilities may be hard to implement, yet (I believe) possible.
This list may change during the development with new ideas being added and old being removed. You can suggest your own idea below!
EDIT: Currently, I got few people to help me, but the work will still go very slowly due to various reasons, so I can’t provide even an approximate date of completion.
