View Full Version : the Elephant Poll

what should we do with the elephant?

03-16-2001, 12:45 PM
let it roam wild. (uh oh, it may PK us and steal our gralats so it can buy peanuts from Skop!)

03-16-2001, 12:47 PM
Kill it for the ivory

03-16-2001, 12:49 PM
Rofl! that would be cool! smack a person in the back of the head with its trunk thenn rob them of their gralats!

03-16-2001, 01:11 PM
throw it on the big survivor island and when we have a survivor contest we have to kill it, eat it to survive, and then sell its ivory tusks to gain immunity among the tribe!

03-16-2001, 01:32 PM
Place about 6 elephants in the world, make them almost impossible to kill (attack them and have your head knocked off by their trunk) let them wander around in the wild, make them have behavior like drinking water, swimming, sleeping. Ivory would be worth a lot, but as I said before, almost impossible to get. People that haven't ever attacked the elephant can ride it, but if you hit it, it'll never let you ride it again.

Paint it white and have it follow the myth of the White Elephant...

A sultan was once given a white elephant, blah blah blah, grand vizier tells him it's a sacred beast and a great honor, blah blah blah, no you can't kill it, you must honor it, even when it's eating you out of house and home, so the Sultan says if it's such a great honor, I think there's noone better suited for it than my good friend the advisor...

Have the White Elephant follow someone and screw with them until they can give it to someone else. ^_^

03-16-2001, 01:42 PM
these are actually some good ideas, lets get Stefan to read them =D

03-16-2001, 01:49 PM
No they're not, and no we shouldn't. :)

The Elephant's doing a good job standing around until somebody gets on it and tells it what to do. :D

03-16-2001, 01:51 PM
I think Dante has peanuts, and is afraid of the elephant :D

03-16-2001, 01:52 PM
hehe mouse NPCs to scare the elephant

03-16-2001, 01:53 PM
haha now there's a good idea, make a "peanuts" NPC, the elephant follows whoever has it!

03-16-2001, 01:54 PM
and devours them and the peanuts when they catch them >:)

03-16-2001, 01:55 PM
just what we need...a elephant that pks ppl with its trunk and steals their peenuts

03-16-2001, 01:59 PM
Haha yeah, you would have peanuts but you wouldn't even know... and if you started to run from the elephant it'd chase after you and trample trees and stuff :D

03-16-2001, 02:01 PM
rofl, why not make it be able to use its trunk as a water gun as a weapon too

03-16-2001, 02:05 PM
lmao yeah
Elephant pets! Haha

03-16-2001, 02:06 PM
my idea = best :(

03-16-2001, 02:07 PM
which one? the mouse one?

03-16-2001, 02:08 PM
i like the idea of its running around and killing ppl with its trunk and stealing their peanuts and money

03-16-2001, 02:12 PM
*buys a bag of peanuts and hides it in mining store*

03-16-2001, 02:13 PM
not the mouse one, the one before it.

03-16-2001, 02:14 PM
yay! the elephant will trample the mining business and make all the humans poor!

03-16-2001, 02:14 PM
killing animals for ivory is bad :(

03-16-2001, 02:18 PM
yea, i want the elepahnt to kill everyone else, not let other kill it

03-16-2001, 02:19 PM
what if the elephant could swim?
...or drown...

03-16-2001, 02:22 PM
it could swim slowly.. i seen elephants that float across rivers

03-16-2001, 02:24 PM
Slower than walking on land O_o;

03-16-2001, 02:26 PM
make it swim as fast as it walks now, and make it walk faster (so it can kill ppl)

03-16-2001, 02:30 PM
Actually, elephants in real life can swim very well. They can even completely submerge and use their trunks to breathe.

We should make all the animals revolt and attack random targets (preferably Welly,) and then allow players to tape their beating given to them by the animals and sell it for gralat as a "When Animals Attack!" special like you see on FOX every other week.

03-16-2001, 07:34 PM
The elephant is weird.

03-16-2001, 10:33 PM
Crono, I like that show :D

Some of the "When Animals Attack" specials are good... others just seem really, really stupid.

03-17-2001, 11:02 AM
Oh yes real elephants are not really slow,
they can run quite fast
The idea with walking through water is good.
drinking water would be possible too, when
someone makes the graphics for it
(may be it need to drink something
to be faster ?)

03-17-2001, 11:03 AM
eating players

and wellys

03-17-2001, 11:05 AM
yes, i agree with Fai, the elephant needs to PK players for their money =D

03-17-2001, 11:07 AM
run over players

and wellys

03-17-2001, 11:19 AM
or just Wellys

03-17-2001, 11:27 AM
Wellys will do fine.

03-17-2001, 11:36 AM
When an Elephant drinks Water, it charges its trunk...maybe one shot per drink, up to 20 shots.
When the player hits the S button, it fires off a spray of water that hits all players in its way for maybe half a heart, probably 0 damage though.

Then I'd like Elephants much better....though I've never been particularly keen on spoken commands for NPCs, but that's just me. I have trouble telling where I tabbed. =P

03-17-2001, 11:50 AM
we should fill Welly's pockets with peanuts so that when he wakes up the elepahnt will be after him trying to kill him for his nuts

03-17-2001, 11:53 AM
Or shove them down where they sun don't shine

03-17-2001, 12:08 PM
you can if you want to, but i aint going down there

03-17-2001, 12:10 PM
I agree 100% with Thym

03-17-2001, 12:13 PM
im still like the idea of letting it run around and kill people with it's trunk to steal their money and peanuts =D

03-17-2001, 12:14 PM
Nah, shooting people with water and killin' them!

03-17-2001, 12:15 PM
since when did water kill? but seeing a elefant smack somone in the back of the head with its trunk just plain makes me laugh

03-17-2001, 12:16 PM
I mean it will hurt them, then It will eventually kill them :D

03-17-2001, 12:18 PM
but, still i didnt know water could hurt you, unless your drowing, or unless its poisonous or acid water

03-17-2001, 12:22 PM
No, the pressure

03-17-2001, 12:27 PM
Haven't you ever seen videos of riot control officers spraying crowds with hoses? People can get injured very badly!

03-17-2001, 12:37 PM
That is exactly what I was thinking of Dante, but you got to it first... :) Anyways, if water is at a high enough pressure, a jet of it can cut through steel...

03-17-2001, 02:46 PM
well, im not gonna argue with facts but i still want it to pk players to get peanuts =D

03-17-2001, 06:29 PM
The elephant should go faster.

03-18-2001, 10:40 AM
Elephants can also walk on bogs that people would sink right into. Weight displacement, the surface-to-volume ratio and all that.

03-18-2001, 10:45 AM
The elephant should go super duper fast. that would be funny

03-18-2001, 12:20 PM
sure, lets shove a jet engine up the elefant's arse

03-18-2001, 01:09 PM
Imagine the elephant going faster than the speed of light...

03-18-2001, 01:24 PM
Tyhm, elephants may have flat feet, but that certainly doesn't displace their immense weight. Nu-uh. A human would have a better chance on snow shoes...

Hey, anyone wanna make a snowshoes NPC???

03-19-2001, 04:45 AM
Seriously, they do!

Humans exert more PSI on the ground than elephants do.
Elephants have 3 feet on the ground at a time, as opposed to humans who walk with 1. Elephants exert their pressure equally, and the surface area to weight ratio is such that elephants can and do walk on bogs humans can't, which is really funny in dense jungles...

The zoo where I used to live (Anchorage, AK) had 2 elephants, and nobody went to see them because they smelled bad. Then, the zoo lost 90% of its visitors because of a tourist who snuck over 9 fences to take pictures of the polar bears Binky and Nica. They got over the fence, then when they tried to take the picture, had their camera and their shoes eaten. Then, when he was interviewed, he said, "But the bears just looked so cute! All I wanted was a picture to show my relatives!" and a few weeks later the bears died because they were given rancid food.

03-19-2001, 07:00 AM
Actually, I neglected to compensate for the fact that elephants have 4 feet. You must be right, Tyhm.

03-19-2001, 09:32 AM
Back at the San Francisco Zoo, some guy jumped into the bear enclosure because the Bears were calling him.

Fortunately (for him), the bears were sufficiently startled that they just backed off into their sleeping quarters...

And more recently, this guy stole a koala to give his girlfriend for christmas...

03-19-2001, 09:42 AM
They stole a KOALA!? Well, that's just odd.

03-19-2001, 09:59 AM
I think a camel would be cooler.

03-19-2001, 01:59 PM
It's sad, they almost killed the poor koala. ;_;

03-19-2001, 09:14 PM
LoL i think the Elephants head is weird lookin, It has a really small head!
i think we need to fix it....

03-20-2001, 03:48 AM
It Must Be Freeee!

03-20-2001, 07:33 AM
Real elephants' heads aren't that big, I think the elephant looks dandy.
