Tile Tops - factsheet by Demmmmy Tile Tops - factsheet by Demmmmy
-Special 3D edition-

So here's a Tile Top.
I felt 3D best describes the shape of the lattice.

I was browsing some textures for something I'm working on, and found a pic that strongly reminded me of this. thought you might be interested in seeing it too: [link]

A bit like Sprog. I wish I could think of flora as strange and original (especially from a structural stand point) as this!

Hmm, yeah I guess so, although Tile Tops have a regular arrangement with symmetry and such, I'm not sure as to how organized Sprog is in its structure.
Plants are somewhat easier to make look alien than animals (especially when some of them can hop about ^-^). I think one way to do it is to mix in some animal bits and put them on a stick. For example, some Fentil plants have an active heart and vessel pump system for water, some have a lung which breathes in and out and others have leaves that resemble insect wings. Then just go to town on the fancy visual stuff, which generally ends up being able to worked in as practical.

I am so jealous of your ideas for plants. :) You're very creative and new. :)

Yeah, sprog is just a low growing, spongy plant. Not much if any symmetry (I assume none).

OH WAIT! These are suppose to be enormous! No this really isn't like sprog then. XD Wow, that's VERY cool!

no idea what this is for, but it's awesome. your great description of all the plant's features make it really realistic. it would be cool to include some epiphytic plants similar to those found in our jungles, which could thrive on the remnants of dead caps on the curved shelf of the bottom of each hole, or some creeping vine that snakes its way up as the tile top grows.

Yeah, there are a few of those types of plants.
One type grows up from between the Tile Tops like a spear. Once it pushes its way up through the Tile Top caps, the tip opens up into a hollow cup, with the photosynthetic surface on the inside. They lose their roots at this point, as the Tile Tops provide all the support they need and they obtain their water/nutrients from parasitizing them.

that's awesome. so is this your brainchild, or is this based on some pre-existing concept? I looked through at some of your other concepts, and I still can't decide. if it's your own, then by god, you need to write a sci-fi novel or something, 'cause your attention to functional detail is right up there with mass effect.

Yeah, Fentil is entirely my creation.
Well thanks very much :D

Really amazing, man. It seems there would be many ecosystems subsisting on all the different parts of these!

Yeah, that's what I'm looking forward to. Some climbing in the lattice, some running around between the plants and more 'normal' animals living on the tops.
