Spoted a New Creature in the Spore Video?
« on: November 09, 2005, 10:22:51 pm »
Ok i was watching the GDC-TV Spore Demo video today for the millionth time again and i think i spoted a new creature in the creature mode.

There is of course in the creature mode ...
1. Sea Williosaurus.
2. Glowing Fish thingys
3. Jelly Fish things with eyes at the top.
4. Willosaurus with legs.
5. Monopod hopping guys.
6. Big predator spider thing that gets abducted later.
7. The huge flying dragon thing people have circled in stills.

and ....

A new little flying bug thing that willosaurus walks by after being chased by the giant spider thing. You can see it after he rust past him runing far into land and then right before he turns right pasts some rocks and many of the monopod hopper guys. It is only there for a few seconds but starts out by the rocks and then flies to the tword the camera to the side. You can also see its wing futtering very fast like a bee or humming bird.

Am i going crazy or is this a new creature in the video??  ???

I'll check it out in the morning, I'm tired and going to bed soon. easier to see it with fresh eyes so to speak. (and a fresh mind)

Yes i saw it, and i have good news and bad news. The good news is you're not mad they're there. The bad news is theyre just flys, nothing of any interest and you see them at other points in the video its just this time theyre flying at the camera.

What was interesting i just how much of the bird you see, i hadnt noticed that you see it three or four times in that short space as he's getting out of the water.

Its actually just one of the bugs they haven't worked out of the code yet. (ducks) That is the cool thing about the procedural stuff, bugs are actually manifesting themselves in the program, making them easier to find. There won't be any patches if your creature is evolved enough to eat the bugs. :) :) :)

ha ha, nice joke.

anyway, they seem to be about the size of the willosaurs head I think, I had a hard time pausing it where I wanted it at. but since theres little detail visible (its a black oval shape with wings), its hard to tell if they are just background stuff that games often have or if they are small insectlike flyers that can be created. also, I think I saw one of them (theres actually two or 3 of them at that rock, one flew at the camera while the other one went to the right) as having a tail like a dragonfly.

as far as that condor-like bird, we do see it taking off from the tree (implying we can perch there as flying creatures), and maybe landing back on a tree. We already know we can make flying creatures (that large condor-type bird we kept seeing), so its possible those flys we saw briefly are small flyers.

I can't wait to see how small and huge we can make creatures.
Hundreds of little lobster/birds attakcing the spider that attcked the Willosaur...or maybe just one huge, 20 armed, 4 legged, scythe-weilding, monster cow.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Wright said in one of the intervies that the maximum size is going to be about indian elephant size. There doesnt seem to be a threshhold on minimum size yet but I think it would be hard to implement a game where a civ of gnats can destroy an elephant

I personally think that the flying insect thingies (Not that big flying thingy) is actually the foodsource of the smallest carnivirous creatures you can make. The hopping creatures and the swimming Willosaurus (Before WW makes it a landanimal) are probably the smallest creatures you can make. The insects are just for food.

We'll all just have to wait untill further info is available.

nope, the glowing worm things were the smallest.  you could tell they were a real species (unlike the insects) because they had morphological similarities (to borrow a biology term) to the jellyfish things, and were presumably related.

I also belive you can see it again flying off another set of rocks to the left as he is walking toward the his Willosaurs mate, but after he makes a mating call.

Here are some screenshots from the first time i saw them.

this thread reminds me of this:  http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/sightings.html

it's really dispicable that they're endangered.  they probably have the best chance of any animal to replace us when we're gone.

wait, nm, hoax.

I suppose it's possible, octopi(?) have ideal limbs for tree-living, though I'm not sure how they would breathe. (I don't know how regular octopi breathe anyway.. gills?)

it is possible, but the site is clearly a hoax.  they're saying the tree octopus is being hunted to extinction by bigfoot, and at a second glance, the sightings are photoshopped with blurry edges.

also, in the heat sensing portion of it, it's the exact same shot, just doctored up for different colours. if they used different film, don't you think the thing would have moved some? it's really funny though

You can get better views of it later in the video, if someone has the patience they could whip up some really good one.

Who says it's smaller than a mouse. Absolutely, it's bigger than the willosaur, and it's farther away, so it's relatively bigger than the willosaur.

I think i found another here at the left by the rocks as the willosaurus is walking to its mate (on the far right). He looks purple-ish blue and lookks to me like it has a turtle-like head. Sadly its behind the rest of it is rock.

I noticed something, I dont think its a dragon, It looks more like that zerg creature, the mutalisk. with a scorpian tail that is underneath instaed of up

and i found another quick moving flying creature a little after we initially see the "dragon" and im almost sure that when will is being chased by the spider, i think there may be emu creatures in the background

well when it goes past you can see a bit more of it briefly and it looks like it has a shell, but the willosaur is moving so fast that I can't see it clearly and there is no way to slow down the vid on the GDC one. which is why I want to d/l it and view it on Windows Media Player or something, but I'm not sure where I can download it.

Regarding those little squids with glowing heads. Does this mean we get bioluminescence? Or do you think those might be the ocean's equivalent of the flies?

argh! anybody having issues with taking screenshots and windows media player? because I found a nice frame that shows that squid like creature with the glowing head but for some reason when I try and take the screenshot and paste it somewhere it either comes up as a blank screen when I try to copy and paste what I want or it cuts off the top part with the fullscreenshot and the creature is on the top part of the window! :P

I'd use the google vid, but the problem is that its there for a very brief time and I can't be precise with it like I can with windows media player.

New things I've spotted:

-Insects that fly around (look at the part where the Willosaur gets to eat), this could be a possible food source.

-At the point at the tribal stage Will clicks/moves his mous to certain points when talking before the introduction of the spears and it seems that one willosaur seems to follow, that willosaur also goes in the tent later. So is that your 'main hero'? The only one you can really control? And is that also the same as the first one you walked the land on as unevolved? Hmm.

-The People in the city go from house to house only and seem to dissapear in thin ear at sometimes. That could mean that the people walking around isn't something you can interact with, just more of an visual.

And googlevid is JAVA script so printscreening the image may not work, try downloading for screenies.

1: See the first post in the thread.

2: Presumably the Willosaur was the only one being directly controlled at the time. From what we know, you can control your creatures in groups at this stage.

3: That would be the City stage, e.g. not the Tribal stage. You use buildings and vehicles from there on out.

How do you spot those things... :o

 I only spotted the new one thansk to the new google video of Spore with Full Screen

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8372603330420559198&q=spore

I took a look at it with Windows Media Player and if you go a few franes ahead you can see a bit more of it, and it sorta looks like a rock although the 'rock' looks sorta like a turtle shell, but I can't see the thing too clearly and it wasnt moving around, so...

New things I've spotted:

-Insects that fly around (look at the part where the Willosaur gets to eat), this could be a possible food source.

-At the point at the tribal stage Will clicks/moves his mous to certain points when talking before the introduction of the spears and it seems that one willosaur seems to follow, that willosaur also goes in the tent later. So is that your 'main hero'? The only one you can really control? And is that also the same as the first one you walked the land on as unevolved? Hmm.

-The People in the city go from house to house only and seem to dissapear in thin ear at sometimes. That could mean that the people walking around isn't something you can interact with, just more of an visual.

And googlevid is JAVA script so printscreening the image may not work, try downloading for screenies.

All of those were mentioned before in other posts. Espeically the flies around the bleading "hoptart"

Yeah but you could see its head moving as it watched the Willosaurus pass by like it was watching him.

I couldn't see the head moving very well. since the body can be seen a little more as the willosaur passes by and you can actually see what I think is a turtle-like shell. So whatever it is, it seems to be some sort of turtle equivalent.

and can you take a picture of that squid thingy with the glowing head that came close enough to be seen clearly? Windows Media Player is giving me wierd problems when I try to screenshot it.

I can't wait to see how small and huge we can make creatures.
Hundreds of little lobster/birds attakcing the spider that attcked the Willosaur...or maybe just one huge, 20 armed, 4 legged, scythe-weilding, monster cow.

Somebody showed me once that if you went into the options and turned off hardware acceleration it fixed that.  But I actualy use a video player with a built-in save screenshot option now anyway.  Media Player Classic

argh! anybody having issues with taking screenshots and windows media player? because I found a nice frame that shows that squid like creature with the glowing head but for some reason when I try and take the screenshot and paste it somewhere it either comes up as a blank screen when I try to copy and paste what I want or it cuts off the top part with the fullscreenshot and the creature is on the top part of the window! :P

I'd use the google vid, but the problem is that its there for a very brief time and I can't be precise with it like I can with windows media player.

Yeah its pat of a copyright thing. If you begin playing again the picture in paint will change again. Sane as when you try moving it around you get different parts of the player. its the same principle if you try copying text from wikipedia, its get the blue background to it.

I can copy text from Wiki...what do you mean?

I used the program that Borogrove suggested

this one is nothing new, its just a closer look at the jellyfish things, I always thought they had one eye but here they have 3:
I thought it would take a pic of the thing zoomed in, but eh.

Look at the creature lineup and you can easily see that it has at least two eyes, the third is probably behind the other two.

OK i have spotted two things firstly the dragonfly type thing appears again. It starts at the first red dot and travels roughly along the line, it appears immediately before the turtle rock

secondly i notice this

watch it closely when Will zooms out it is shown more emerged from the water making me believe that it is in fact a submarine (that and the fact it moves)


oh and smjjames, to fix the problem with media player go to tools, then options, then click on the performance tab. Then just reduce video acceleration down to none(then click apply). I think the problem occurs due to buffering but i'm not entirely sure, but anyway that is how to fix it.

yea, that dragonfly type thing is probably related to those other larger flies that we see a bit earlier although that one moves a little slower and is visible for a longer time.

the second picture could be an island, but its hard to tell without more detail

Older than that even that is the 2005 GDC - and as confriming sources go - one of the worst sources you can go to.. For instance - one could assume that Underwater creatures are definitely in when we now know they may (but probably wont) be included in the initial release..

This is an old topic that has been rehashed endlessly on this forum.. FYI - if you've "discovered" something new about one of those videos - chances are this msgboard discovered it before you.

Yes if you watch the video you can see its wings flapping like a dragonfly. It is actually seen twice in the video. One while running away from the big spider guy and once after it calls out for a mate and walks over to it. They move very fast but are there.

i now its kinda unlikely, and it seems more and more that there aren't gonna be any flying creatures. But anyways. DAMN i wish there will be! Just imagine yourself develop you creature from the primordial soup to a winged creature. i think it will be very hard to create a creature that can fly. I think you must follow a very strict path if you try to create a flying creature, or else everyone will make one.
Think about bird, the creatures in the real world that has the ability to fly are one of the oldest species still living. (exept insects, all flying creatures are descendants from the dinosaurs) and the have earned their place in the sky.

(probably by jumping as high as possible, just for the thrill of it, through generations until they kept hanging in the air.)
 it would just be soooo mouthwatering wonderful if there will be flying creatures.. thats what i'm all in all trying to say..
