Title: How are YOU going to help Noogle?
Post by: Xenomorph on March 12, 2007, 12:37:11 pm
Meet Noogle
(http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q44/rauva/ScreenShoot/418261384_97b3ce32cb.jpg)

Noogle is the first creature under your control after the tidepool stage. Noogle is very small and weak.
What is the first thing you are going to give to this wormpy? Will it be legs? Or spikes on his back?

I would give him legs. Walking worms for the win!
Title: Re: how are you going to help noogle?
Post by: Kcronos on March 12, 2007, 12:40:05 pm
I would keep his as he is, just make the texture cooler, and make him become a galactic warlord...

{Queue Depressing Music} Noogle was born without any legs.  He evolved from a tough life of avoiding other creatures just to stay awake.  He has no family, few friends, and society have rejected him due to his disability....

{Queue Hopeful Music} But you can help Noogle have a better life.  With just a 2 evo-point donation a month the Nooglehelp foundation can help support this little creature on his way, meet new people and grow new legs.

Please help by calling this number: 0800 HELP 432.  Thank You.

Wait, this isn't the only thing we start out with, is it? I hope not, either way, I'd give him some legs so he can run faster.

As I just posted in another thread, I hope that that is not what you always start out as.  I'd hope that the final form of your creature in Tidepool would affect your starting form in Creature.
Title: Re: how are you going to help noogle?
Post by: Thargor on March 12, 2007, 01:16:35 pm
It's probably going to end up looking at least somewhat like that. I mean, we don't seem to have any leg options in the tidepool phase so it's pretty likely that we'll all be crawling before we're walking  :P

I'd say a texture color, since it creeps up onto the mandibles... Probably done to maximize the visibility of the parts for the presentation.

Probably.  In the previous editors, there wasn't any color until the texturing part, right?  At least I don't remember ever seeing color while attacting parts.

What if we want him to be even more disabled? For example, take off everything and turn him into a sphere?

I'd stick spikes along his back, then possibly a weird leg setup, then another head on his back.

I pledge a single penny to help noogle.

That way, later in his life, his city funds will always have a little .01 on the end, possibly crashing his game for some reason.
Thus he is defeated.

Hmmm.  There's an idea.  I wonder if you could just make a sphere covered in mouths.  It'd eat by rolling over things.  Like the huge Critter-ball in the movie Critters.

I shall call it... Noogle Survivor... Heck, I could easily make that a weekly podcast  :P

me im all for the slow realistic evolution, im going to just add a really good rated mouth, and some form of attack, maybe sum spikes along his back, then slowly change him untill he has legs, and then arms, and eventually make him into a kind of reptile probably.... from slug to all fours to standing :D

and thargor thats actualy a cool idea, like collecting really premature slug animals, and letting them evolve using monoliths... seeing them in their evolution stages would be cool.

also i wonder how the social herd mechanics and stuff will work, like herds of slugs ( theres def other slugs u can see them in the corner of some pics)

I second that pronounciation.

Speed: 1
Stealth: 5
Defense: 1
Social: 0
Cuteness: 1
Attack: 0

I'm assuming it's a herbivore, then!  This actually points out something said in another thread.  If you don't have ways to communicate, then your creature can't be social.  It also brings something to my attention that I hadn't noticed...  The sliders (strength, stealth, etc) seem to change (for example, herbivore/carnivore are missing).  I'm guessing that it only shows the sliders that are affected by the parts you're currently viewing.

Edit:  Sorry, it was Speed, not Strength.
Title: Re: how are you going to help noogle?
Post by: Bastardman on March 12, 2007, 08:37:55 pm
I thought they had removed herbivore/carnivore from the editor screen altogether.

At least, I don't remember seeing them in any of the recent screens.

I guess I don't really know when this was taken, but I only saw it posted recently.
Actually the more I look at it, the more it seems like it's from an older editor.  Judging from the background, the gray container the parts are in, and the buttons under the slider.  But still, it'd mean they also got rid of Power (which probably would be Attack/Defense) and Sense.

The bars seem to change constantly. The most recent pics had Defense, Attack, Social, Stealth, Speed, and Cuteness while slightly older ones (the Wall Street Journal ones) had Health, Social, Stealth, Speed, and Cuteness and ones just a little while before that had no Cuteness and Defense and but had Sense, Herbivore, and Carnivore. I don't think we will know what stats creatures will have until the game is actually out.

Maybe it depends on which parts-submenu you have open, so for instance if you've got the 'Decoration'-parts open, you get the Cuteness meter, and when you have the 'Mouths' tab selected, you get the 'Omnivore' and 'Carnivore' stats.

Maybe the Spore dev team is trying to confuse us on purpose.  They keep chainging the bars and the backgrounds so that we can never truly know what everything is going to look like until its out!
Nothing is what it seems!  Nothing is real!

Or maybe they can't decide for the life of them what to keep in...

The grub's stealthiness is probably owing to it's extreme small size and featurelessness more than anything else. That's if the computer procedurally analysing it still comes into it...

But here's a challenge for when the game comes out, perhaps - see if you can go all the way through the creature stage to the tribal stage without ever changing the grub. Hell, see if you can get to the spacefaring stage making only cosmetic changes (feathers, color changes, nothing that improves the grub's usefulness in any regard), just to see if you can.

I don't think it is. It looks much more like it should be pronounced like google, but with an 'n' instead of the first g. And if some of you are going to worship it, I'm pretty sure you should agree on how to say it. I'd imagine the great noogle in the sky would be annoyed if you pronounced his name wrong

Post by: smurfslayer on March 13, 2007, 12:24:22 pm
I don't actually think that would be that hard to do. You'd just have to be really stealthy, be a herbavore, and avoid other creatures like the  plague. Tribal wouldn't be that hard either though since the other tribes your competing with would be Noogles.

Title: Re: How are YOU going to help Noogle?
Post by: Bona Fide Supraman on March 13, 2007, 12:37:07 pm
Hmmm, maybe as it has no ears it just THINKS its being stealthy. Its splodging through the forest knocking things over and making a hell of a racket, and its thinking, wow, can't hear anything, I'm being really quiet

Edit: Actually, if you don't have eyes, in the creature stage would it turn into a sort of sonar thing with over sensetive ears or would it just be a black screen or something?

But, now that's out of me, I'd give it one leg, and some eyes on its ass (just like that saying: I have eyes on the back of my head! Well now we're going to have to add the word ass to it.)

Alright. Now that I've had a day to doodle in class (grade 8 is easy), I have a few sketches of possible nooglevolutions (not a typo, just an awesome-ish word):

(http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s258/MaeReborn/MaeNoogle.gif)

Sorry they're so poorly scanned, but what can you do (don't say scan it again).

Anyway, in the first one (Nooglaeus Predatorium), the creature has that kind of sucker mouth that's available from the beginning, as well as a tail with a (possibly) poisoned stinger. Also it has the standard (for me) chitinous shell and adorable anime eyes to lull the enemy into a false sense of safety (Awww... Its so *GHAAAH!!!* Thud.)

In the second one (Noogleus Herbivorous), it has become quadrupedal and has kept it's original pincer-mouth (could be used as tusks), as well as a smaller mouth on the inside, to rip up plants. Also it has the standard chitinous shell and adorable anime eyes, that make them too adorable to eat.

I thought they had removed herbivore/carnivore from the editor screen altogether.

At least, I don't remember seeing them in any of the recent screens.

Ehhh they have and haven't it's just been moved. If we look at the following picture

http://www.joystiq.com/photos/will-wright-sxsw-keynote-pix/184012/

it shows information on one of the mouth pieces...so basically whether you're a herbivore or carnivore is one of those buttons under the ermmm stats bar, as it's the same symbol as seen in other screenshots.

Ahh!  Nice.  I recognize that "fraction" now.  That can be seen under the sliders in the other menus, too.  So they just changed Herbivore/Carnivore from a slider to an icon.  It probably switches between the meat, the veggie, and the fraction.

My guess is that different mouths will allow you to eat different things. For example, some herbivores eat grass, others eat fruit, etc. It makes sense.

How about giving the noogle arms and no legs... then make it really big, and call it Jabba the Mega-Noogle.

I was thinking that exactly. Or like a weird limb configuration attatched to the basic noogle. That would be so cool. It would inch around with some weird maze of limbs on top of it, completely unsymetrical.

Actually, everyone is saying the wrong name. It is Noogie, not Noogle. I found a better quality picture where you can read it better. It's easy to understand why everyone thought it was Noogle though.
Here is the link to the picture. http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=420573572&size=o&context=photostream

So apparently it's noogie not noogle. So i guess i would help by changing his name to noogle.

If no one else noticed, Noogle is very stealthy.

And P.S. it's pronounced (new-gull).

Hehe, your wrong. It's actually pronouced New-gee, since it's spelled Noogie. Everyone has been saying Noogle, but I just found a high resolution picture and it's spelled Noogie, not Noogle.

No, we have one omnivore mouth.  But if you have one mouth for meat and one mouth for veggies, then you can eat both meat and veggies...  And what is something that eats meat and veggies called?  Omnivore.  At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what your mouths are, just what goes in your belly to fuel you.

No, that's called an opportunistic eater.  And for the record, goats only nibble on everything they don't actually eat everything (Trust me, my family raised goats my entire life.  I know too much about them!

Maybe they'll just bash into each other until they fertilise one another. That'll be fun to try. Like sexual joulsting!

Slugs here on Earth are all A-sexual :P
Normally slugs need an overhang to mate from, they use their mucus as a type of bungee rope to hang from, then they entwine their iluminus organs which then fan out into a flower shape and its then they finish the job and fall off the overhang.
Woo, got to love 'Life in the Undergrowth' :D

I think i'll eventually evolve the Noogie/Noogle into a cute version of a Xenomorph. Make it have a little button nose, big boggly eyes and tiny paws with a soft fur. Just for the hell of it! It'll be really small and a herbivore called Tim.

First off.  WOW, what an image.

Secondly, they aren't asexual.  Asexual means you don't need to breed with anyone, you just produce similar but not exact copies of yourself as babies.  Slugs are hermaphroditic, meaning they are both male and female at the same time.

It'd be really interesting to see, because it couldn't jump as it would have not joints or anything that it could use for an upwards motion...

As one might imagine, I'm partial to slugs (in theory and concept, not in actual practice).  I think I'll keep him without legs for a while.  Step by step (allowing for moments of "HOLY BALLS LOOK AT THAT THING!!  oh yeah, that's going on the beast for sure!")

> rib spikes or spinal spikes
> better eyes, better mouth
> longer
> weaponous tail

and after that I got nothing...  :D

yeah, i think i'll let him evolve too part by part and step by step. that will be much cooler!  ;)

but i think i'll start helping him giving him 2 HUGE LEGS. yeah, really huge. and next, i'll give him a tail between his feet where the battle-fish chainsaw thingy is attached too. every little that dares to walk between MY BOY eh, noogle, is dead meat.

Maybe they'll just bash into each other until they fertilise one another. That'll be fun to try. Like sexual joulsting!

Slugs here on Earth are all A-sexual
Normally slugs need an overhang to mate from, they use their mucus as a type of bungee rope to hang from, then they entwine their iluminus organs which then fan out into a flower shape and its then they finish the job and fall off the overhang.
Woo, got to love 'Life in the Undergrowth'

Maybe even like snakes. You ever seen that? Its just a huge mass of them wriggling around. Kinda odd

Ewww...  But with the basic noogie/noogle, it'd look more like a mass of wriggling maggots.

Yay! Noogle orgie!  :D

....

<.<

I would give my little Noogle friend 3 pairs of spider like legs, but make them so that his torso still drags along the ground as he walks. His legs would just kinda stick upwards out of his back and then go back down to the ground to form a kind of upside down "V" on each side. I would also give him spikes on his legs and back if I still had enough DNA points.

That would definately make my mother throw up. I've had a big maggot problem getting into my rubbish bins, and shes the one who forces her self to clean them out. So in spore you make a race of sentient maggots and have them build thier own comunity and a civilisation. Then my mother sees it and barfs. Yeah that'd be great.

Post by: Bona Fide Supraman on March 21, 2007, 10:55:03 am
I'd give it just a pair of two huge legs, and then later another two. But so that they all pretty much join at the same spot. Then hell have a mouth at the bottom and an eye at the top. It'd just be interesting to see how he walks.

...Because the legs would have no joints. It'd be a collection of waddling legs

Ooh! I had another idea! How about cover your Noogle friend all in flowers! Then put the mouth that shoots poison/venom/goo on its forehead, but make it covered in the flowers so that it's impossible to see. It could shoot poison/venom/goo and it would look like the flowers are spitting it! It would be the most stealthy and dangerous 4 inch slug in the jungle!

Post by: La_farm on March 21, 2007, 11:28:40 am
I'd like to give him some webbed feet, four to be exact, but keep them stout so he is fairly short. Then I'd add a ribbed, webbed sail to his back, similar to one you'd find on a lizard, and give him a mouth other than the pinchers. I'd paint him orange with purple spots near the sail and give him a black trim on his feet, sail, and mouth.

That was kind of stupid and kind of funny.

Anyways I'd have his mouth on his backside. And two legs coming out of the same spot. He'd have to back himself into a perfect spot to eat, and make sure he didn't eat his own legs. I'm sick like that.

But we are supposed to help ol' Noogie/Noogle so I'm out of Ideas.

Unknown to all the races of the universe Noogle's are extremely intelligent and telepathic, and are able to sense other life forms from miles away, they know when other life forms are going to attack them. if you believe they are stupid and weak then you have completely misunderstand Noogle's. If you have seen videos (illegal) of Noogle's being killed it is because, they choose to sacrifice themselves for the good of there civilisation. They are culling themselves deliberately in order to not destroy there environment and over populate there planet. Leave them alone or you will suffer.

The picture of my evolution of Noogle.

(http://img108.imageshack.us/img108/174/walkingnoogleko6.png)

The Walking Noogle (scientific name: Helminthotherium postwilli, meaning "worm beast after Will") descended from a wormy, slug-like creature called Noogie. It has adapted to an omnivorous diet, scavenging or eating fruit. To reach the fruit, it has developed locomotion that involves two, muscular, pillar-like legs and a walking tail. It walks rather slowly, but has a few defenses. Powerful pincers that bite predators is one, but another one is increased intellegence to help give ideas to where the creature should escape. Inbetween their front legs are two long feeling tentacles (not shown). Also, for better sentry, the Walking Noogle's eyes became stalked. This helps detect incoming predators more efficiently. It retains the green color for camouflage.

EDIT: I found a post with a higher resolution picture. I looked close enough and it's actually Noogie. Oh well.

The next evolutionary step for Noogie.

(http://img54.imageshack.us/img54/1843/predatorynoogieoe1.png)

The Predatory Noogie (scientific name: Cynohelminthus tripodus, genus meaning "dog worm", and species meaning "three-footed"), the descendant of the Helminthotherium, is omnivorous, but gained a new predatory behavior. The tail-foot becomes jointed, and the feeling tentacles move upward.  It is still green for camouflage. The Predatory Noogie's eyes gained pupils that dialate so it can see prey better. To hunt prey, the predatory noogie slowly sneaks up to the target in small groups, and when it's the right time, they attack. It still eats fruit, but not much. The Predatory Noogie also eats a tiny amount of grass to provide roughage for the intestines.
