Hi everyone, I just made a little Flash piece that’s not a game or an animation, but something different. I can’t post it on Kongregate since it’s not really a game, but I thought I’d link to it here so you can take a look.

It’s just a little scene that you can observe, like looking through a window into a world. It’s all created by code, so it’s different every time, and you can change the scene whenever you want.
It uses the exact same sort of physics as my ragdoll game. :) I might even make it into a game sometime, what do you think?
Yeah, those are the main issues I notice. I wanted the leaves to look different, more irregularly shaped so they would seem to be at an angle, but I couldn’t figure out a good ragdoll structure for the leaves that would allow that.
The texture is also a big thing I wanted to fix, but it’s pretty hard to do that with just the AS drawing commands. It might be possible to fill them with a bitmap image instead of just a solid color, though that might slow it down too much. Another approach might be arranging pre-drawn movie clips of different leaf parts.
I think for the future I’ll try making plants with a bunch of little leaves of different shades, to make it seem more varied. It would also help if raindrops stayed on the leaves and gave them texture that way. I was thinking of doing that but it ended up being too complicated. Someday, though.
I appreciate the feedback, thanks.
My Emily. Not Kongregate’s Emily. Check the about page and you will see their last names are not the same! :p
By uninteresting do you mean unvaried? I’ll be trying to figure out how to make them look more natural.
I don’t think I could make the leaves fall off, but I could make it so you can tap them or blow them around with wind or something.
