Here are some tips on how to set up your own Norn and Grendel Paradise
Alexander Laemmle's Beowolf's Homepage
and get Creatures Object Editor (COE) and BORG. These wonderful programs will allow you to scroll through Albia with ease, keep your Norns and Grendels well-fed, and allow you to select the Grendel. You can pick them up, take pictures of them, and check on the health of your Grendel! There's also a new Genetics Editor for breeding and cloning.
be sure to register for these great programs! (If you are in the United States, go to your local Post Office and get an International Money Order form. Fill it out and send it by snail mail to St. Louis, MO. The Money Order for Austrian Schillings will be sent directly from Missouri to Austria.)
Get the Cheats from Sam and Joe's
My Computer's Got a Brain
. We use them so often that we keep a shortcut to them right on our computer desktop. Just double-click on the icon of your choice to activate them. To turn off the cheats, double-click on the "User" icon. (The cheats have to be turned off to do
's Norn Ancestral Viewer.) Remember to save your world because the cheats don't autosave Albia.
You can make Albia safe for everyone by getting rid of the weeds. You can simply delete all of the weeds with
Sam & Joe's
Weed Remover or you can move them. Pick up the weeds by holding down Ctrl-Shift and Left-Clicking with your mouse. Move the weeds to an inaccessible place, such as the Moon, the sky, the ocean, the mountains, or one of the islands. Be creative. Decorate Albia to your heart's content! To put the weeds down hold Ctrl-Shift and Right-Click.
Set up Grendel Island:
Move the two transporters from the Desert Island and the Lighthouse to an inaccessible place. This will keep the Grendels from escaping, and prevent the Norns from getting to the Grendels.
Move the Grendel Machine from the Grendel Tree to the sky next to the Carrot Vendor so that the Grendel Eggs will drop onto the walkway hanging from the coconut trees on the Desert Island.
Make the Grendels comfortable by giving them lots of food, a ball, the clock from the Grendel Tree, a teddy bear, and whatever else they seem to enjoy.
If you would like to keep your Norns drug-free, but don't mind the Grendels getting drunk, then put the still and all the hootch cups next to the Carrot Vendor. Otherwise, move them to an inaccessible location.
Scatter lots of food throughout Albia. If you start running low on food, use the COE to change the quantity of cheese, Christmas Pudding, ice cream, etc. to 255, and you'll never worry about food shortages again! Our Norns and Grendels
to eat, so we wouldn't be able to manage without this. After you register your COE, you can simply Inject food and other items into Albia.
Treat your Norns and Grendels to Chocolate Bars, a TV/VCR, a Statue, an Anthill, and many other interesting things! Get some great COBs from
created by S. J. Kalynuik and now owned by TazzMann, Sandra Linkletter's
Slink's Burrow Online
, or Mark Boehler's
and lots of other sites all over the internet.
Save the World and make a
of it. Whenever you begin playing the game, use a copy of it so that in case your computer crashes you won't have to set everything up all over again.
Also make copies of all your Norns .EXP files. In case anything terrible happens to a Norn, you'll still have a backup copy of it.
If you save the World just after a Norn has layed an egg, then make a copy of that World, you can keep rehatching the same egg over and over. Create twins, triplets...the possibilities are endless! If you save it when the egg is small, it randomly hatches out as either male or female. If you wait 'till the egg gets big, it will always be male or always female.
There are several sites on the internet where you can download Immortal Norns. These Norns have a high life force, usually above 97. Don't get too complacent, though. It
possible for the Immortal Norns to get sick or even die in some circumstances. For example, they can get sick if they don't eat or sleep enough, and they can die as they are imported. The horrors of SIDS (Sudden Import Death Syndrome! Sob!)
When you feel comfortable enough to work with the macro scripts, you can use COE to change the effects of the COBs. We made all of our COBs safe. For example, our Cave Flies no longer cause pain, and our Holly and Mistletoe are now safe plants instead of weeds. We made non-alcoholic Beer for our Norns, although we still let the Grendels get drunk!
Also use COE to inject many pieces of food all at once by adding "reps 255" into the macroscript. If you don't feel comfortable fiddling with macroscripts, you may download our "Many Cheese" COB from our
When you feel even more confident, you can use COE to create your own COBs! Draw your own Sprites and write your own macro scripts to create anything you want your Creatures to have! It's not that difficult...If
could do it,
can! (***Thank you, Alex, for all your help!!!***)
Before you get too carried away creating COBs, a small reminder:
Make sure you remember to use a unique Class number.
Now that Stefan Kuske is leaving,
is the new keeper of Class Numbers. Please check with Nicole to see which Class numbers are available.
Wanna see an Easter Egg file? When your Creatures program is
running, open up these folders: Program Files, Creatures, TempBu. Double-Click on the Bustr.txt file. You'll see an interesting poem on a Notepad file!
