Its tricky, you have to have gravel or skulls or something, jump off the edge, and drop them on the bottom edge of the map before you fall off (easier in admin mode), but you can get a purchase to build from there.
I built an artificial ocean by building a glass background and filling it with water. I then started in on islands, like Starchibald’s island retreat (in progress) and his escape ship, which old school gamers may recognize.
Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor!
After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He’s out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*
Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in… Adventure in Telezonia!
*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.
Starchibald and Sunny Jim take on Clash of the Titans despite Zeus’s objections! Will the classic 1981 fantasy adventure stand up after all these years? Magical weapons, stop-motion monsters and a special guest star await in… Clash of the Titans!
My first puppet was Starchibald, a simple sock-puppet like creature made from ProjectPuppet’s Glorified Sock Puppet design. As my first design, Starchibald had some problems. His arms were poorly sewn and could neither be manipulated or posed. His stiching was questionable, I had tried to glue in his tongue with fabric glue leading to discoloration and, in general, he was rough going.
Still, I liked the character, and after having made another dozen or so puppets to build up my skills, I decided to make a new one.
Starchibald 2.0 is far and away a superior puppet. He has a foam body for structure, better sewing techniques and fabric to minimize seam appearances, interchangable eyes affixed with velcro for future expansion of his facial expressions, better designed and attached inner-mouth features, a wire-posable tail (he’s some kind of Salamander or newt), bushier eyebrows and working arms (one with a removable rod, the other with a magnet in his palm for grabbing things/using a magnet-based rod.
With his eyebrows, his major features are completed. I plan on adding a puppeteer’s sleeve and possibly a pair of legs down the road.
