Editor Ideas?
« on: December 26, 2009, 02:57:11 pm »
Anyone have ideas about editors that would be neat to have in Spore? Mine is a Part Editor:
You have a blob of a hand, which you mold to your liking. Then, you add fingers. After you add fingers and move and manipulate them the way you want (they manipulate like limbs in the creature editor, except asymetric), you add tips to the fingers (claws,suction cups, ect.) that give your hand certain abilities such as the various strike levels, ect. These are transfered to the creature, in turn, when the hand is placed. The same goes for feet. You add toes to designate it as a foot, then add toe endings that give speed,ect.
This is just a rough idea.

Basically a more user-friendly version of Maya?

I'm all for it! :)

Sadly, there's a high chance that we may not get much for Spore anymore, considering it's current financial situation. :-\

However, here's hoping that some company someday will pick up on this game's legacy. That would truly rock, especially if they base it on that fateful first demo! ;)

Eh, Spore still has poetential for epic win, they just need to reprioritize. Rather than GA so early, they should have adressed other issues that turned people away from the game. GA really didn't do jack diddle squat for the play value of the game, all it added were two new editors and linked them to the Space Stage. To be honest, they should have released that damn Flora Editor before GA. They should have done an Aquatic Stage before GA. The Aquatic bit was high on the demand before Spore was released, that probably would have sold alot better what GA managed. New editors that are functional, such as my part creator idea, or a stage beyond Space when you go into the galactic core rather than that stupid Staff of Life, which was not worth the 200 Grox colonies I fought through tooth-and-bloody-freakin-nail to get to it. Mabe a sandbox god-game style thing where you get to influence the NPC empires you encountered in the Space Stage as an enlightened species (Hydro?). That'd be boss in my opinion. Y'know, able to create and disperce galactic anomolies, even the galactic core, and watch everything go crazy. Anyway, there's my solid brick of text for you to read over and throughly enjoy until your eyes pop like the little eggs they are.

My eyes aren't little eggs... D :


Anyways, I think the reason they did GA first before the water stage is because GA is easier to make compared to an entirely new facet of the planet's surface. Also, there would be massive conflicts regarding how the Civ Phase would have to be played out.

As for the flora editor, yeah, I myself am not quite sure why they didn't. :-\

FLORA EDITOR YES!!!
Also, I would like submarines. If we can't have an aquatic stage, at least let us first-person in a submarine during space!
Finally, I would like a more in-depth creature editor, where you could decide how it breathes (Lungs or gills?) what its circulatory system is like, etc.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

I got the best idea for an editor. Picture this!

How about an editor  that allows you to Uninstall the game and all of its useless content that takes up 10 GBs of wasted Hard Drive Space, all with the push of a single button.

That would be awesome!

Why are you even still here? If you hate the game that much, what reason do you have to talk about Spore anymore?

And the game came out a while ago.

Have you still not gotten over it? Pathetic.

Seems reasonable. It can be viewed as trolling.

A seperate area to put interior locations in the Adventure area would be nice, to make sure they're nice and flat.

Yes water Stage and Flora Editor are my dreams too.

Also I wish stats for parts were independent from how they physically look. Making it so you could make the creature look however you want with the stats you want them to have. You want a mean looking monster that is a "push over" go ahead. You want a blob that kicks butt, sure why not?

Yeah, I wanted more for my inside space too. That would have made for boss base missions. As I said earlier, EA, and moreover, Maxis, should really re-prioritize if they really have any hopes for this to go for, or at least let the damned Source Code out so those boys at BetterSpore can really do some modding  :P. Also, lose this one man army thing in Space, this isn't bloody Half-life. GIMME MAH BLASTED JUGGERNAUGHTS AND LET THE FIREWORKS BEGIN!
And by fireworks, I mean MAH MEGA PULSE BATTERIEZ!
