Cob Thinking Space

Below is a list of various ideas for things in various stages of development.
ask me before poaching my ideas, I may well say yes!




A learning computer that is modelled on a Commodore 64,
the first computer I remember my family having as a kid

An egg retrieval switch, based on sprites from Commander Keen 6.
This had mostly been superceded by my Icons cob

Hatchery Egg Maker (10 breed slots, 4 species, 2 sexes)
With an affixed herb-box. This is intended as an upgrade to the Super Norn Cloner


The Sterilizer
It will neuter any creature nearby, useful to prevent overpopulation, inbreeding and immortality. 




This is my image for my Gweldolyn cob, which works somewhat like the robots in Rick n Morty,
she will probably be classified as a creature and will be a surrogate mother for male norns.


The squirrel, dwells in trees and eats fruit


The yorp, a friendly Martian, pushes creatures around





One of my plans is to add the conker tree (horse chestnut) from C2 to C1.
I'm probably going to call it Aesculus, after the latin name for it

Other plants I intend to convert to C1 are:

Golden nut, Triffid Plant and Bell Flower

These images are taken from The Bonsai Vendor by Spotling,
I plan to reuse them stripped of their pots, as shrubs of some sort.


This gorgeous sprite set by Jesseth will be the basis for my Mossy Shee's Tree


These nettles and Strawberries (sprite set by Luayana) will be similar plants that spread by stolons.
Nettles, once complete will be my first ever weed plant!


Tomato pack:
Has rooted versions of Training, Cherry Tomato and Ugly Cherry Tomato plants.
Moves existing Tomato and Ugly Tomato plants to this new patch between bridge and temple.


One thing I've been toying with is making new versions of the original plants, a la Steve Dismukes


Bluebell and Fly Agaric



Reinvent holly and mistletoe

Edible self-seeding Beelacanth



Microwave that turns regular carrots into tastier steamed carrots
Food processor that turns carrots/lemons/pears into fruit juice cartons
A Still-o-matic machine that can turn honey into alcoholic mead

Unholey Cheese Making Engine (UCME)


This is mother Hubbard's cupboard. It contains multiple carrot varieties including a brand new
Arctic breed. It also provides lemons and kumquats.


Toys & Similar


Rattle - annoys adults, but fun for little babies


The plasma ball is a "relax" type toy like the clock and shower.

Update the Bong - add smoke clouds that also make creatures happy ;-)


The Toy Chest
basically a toy vendor.

The Heavens

I plan to make a combo cob at some point to save time installing.

Shangri-la (Cloud 7) in temple below Olympia
Olumpus (Cloud 8)
Cloud 9
Olympia (Cloud 10)

Dragon Lifts
Seraph (guardian)
Teaching Angel

Winged norn breed

Winged rabbit messenger thing for Olympia (using C2 sprites)
Fog, radiant, and pearly gates in Olympia

Panacea Pills cure poisons and toxins
Ichor infusion to bring immortality to norns

Tricoloured roses

The Allotment

Potato plant you can harvest potatoes from without uprooting it.  (2)
If uneaten, the potatoes will sprout into new plants, but luckily they grow slowly

Cabbages that are quite tough and can bounce - but not as bouncy as balls  (3)

Pumpkin plants produce a small number of slowly-ripening fruit that can get quite large  (1)
(their final size randomly decided) They can be dropped and break into manageable pieces

Peas, which grow on lemon-like vines  (3)

Onions, not the tastiest of veg, but good for you (contain some antibodies) (sprites based upon previous cob by Dr Smile)  (3)

Radish (sprites based upon previous cob)  (3)

More Lemons, carrots (with controller, updated sprites)  (3)

carrots (already there! but updated with extended patch)  (1)

Beanstalks, grow tall and produce many beans, then re-sow themselves  (3)

Frutel Plants, like sweeter & healthier tomatoes, come in several varieties:  (3)
red, spotted, iced, cherry, orange

Veggie Bug - a pest that swarms around and eats your crop.  (3)
Impossible to remove as they lay tiny eggs that are impossible to find

Lassie Bug - eats Veggie bugs, but is easily killed by your norns,  (3)
and are prone to wander away from their food supply. Luckily they can breed when well fed
