                      a Plant's one year celebration demo

        Sorry everybody we might have offended. We love You.


        Caero took part in The Party 5 demo competition in
        Denmark. This time we were lucky - the demo won the
        whole competition.


        Caero was not made in a hellish rush, but it sure interfered
        our studying. The engine took a half year to finish and the
        rest was done in two weeks.


        The whole thing runs under Tran's PMode 2.5 and uses EMF's
        standard demo libraries, including the module player.

        If the demo seems slow on your machine, don't blame your
        hardware. It was made on 486/33, so below that it might
        be very ugly. The scenes are complex (more than 7000
        polygons in the butterfly scene for example) and some
        of them have transparent objects and motion blur with colors.

        All the regular phong&bump stuff was ready, but not included
        as a protest to the common trend.

        This demo is the one year tribute production for Plant.
        The whole thing started in late 1993 when Mik Sair was
        designing an intro for TP4. At some point there was need
        for a graphician and music. So Plant was formed Mik Sair
        as a coder, Beatnik as a graphician and Edge doing groovy
        tunes. A prefix Project was added, because none of us
        thought that we would feel like doing this stuff more
        than this one intro, Abraham.

        After Abraham there were changes - Project was removed from
        the name and Edge left with it. Right after Edge was retired
        Purple Motion joined. Then the whole fun started.

        First there was a friendly little production called Duck
        at Juhla in Iisalmi. Then we made Cyboman 3, the First
        Actual Parody Demo for Juhla 2«. Assembly was closing in
        so we wanted to make a demo. And for our first real demo we
        wanted to make something really groundbreaking. It was
        a few months of blood and sweat running in the forests and
        coast of Southern Finland filming Divine Booty. Unfortunately
        our favourite production was disqualified in the competition -
        probably because of it's perverse and obscene shots.

        For an excuse to attend the Scenario party and get drunk in the
        Lahti city we put up Groove Action. This was our last demo
        before Caero, our last demo.

        So we've made five productions altogether. Here are the authentic
        filenames so you can download them them all:

                FTJ&EROS.ZIP .. Abraham
                FTJ_DUCK.ZIP .. Duck
                FTJ_PIKA.ZIP .. Cyboman 3 - The Honeynut Loop
                FTJ_LOVE.ZIP .. Divine Booty
                FTJ_ACT.ZIP ... Groove Action
                FTJ_YMCA.ZIP .. Caero

        This year there might be less productions since I (Mik Sair) start
        my one year military service. However Dune might manage to put up
        some silly productions with Beatnik.
