Create Mode is unlocked by beating the first theme of the LittleBigPlanet game. In Create Mode, you can create levels using the tools given to you. Created levels can be published to the Community Earth where other players connected to the Internet can start playing the level.
Create Mode is where you are able to let your creative juices flow by using your tools to create objects and levels and then release them to the public to show off your clever creation skills. It is a mode accessed via the My Moon option in the Pod where you can create levels on one of several given spots then publish your finished level to get Trophies, friend requests, hearts, and good ratings. You can also just create objects and save them individually or create a level and not publish it. The main idea is, just be creative in any way you can possibly think of. Of course, you can't really do too much until you clear all of the tutorials; clearing each grants you most if not all of the Goodies (as well as the knowledge of how to do things, that is!).
Tools and Objects
In Create Mode, players are able to build levels using the hundreds of tools, materials, and objects available. In LittleBigPlanet 2, Logic components were introduced, and other objects were added that made Creating levels easier.
The Good Grief! Menu
In an attempt to keep LittleBigPlanet appropriate and "clean", Media Molecule implemented the "Good Grief!" system. The Good Grief! Menu is accessed via pressing the SELECT or SHARE button. A creation should be flagged by Good Grief! if the creation is/depicts:
- Incredibly violent
- Mature content and obscenity
- Currently in violation of a copyright
Good Grief is thoroughly explained in a tutorial, and in the LittleBigPlanet manual.
