I'm just glad to see I wasn't the only one REALLY disappointed by that choice in featured content. not exactly trying to whore myself out, but i've at least made some buildings and creatures a heck of a lot better than that.

Spore: General / Re: Space stage IS broken.

yesterday, i got my third creature to space. and just so ya know, they are Zealots. i was very curious to see who my neighbors would be because up to that point, my previous 2 creatures had it pretty easy in space. well this time things went differently. on my first mission out of my solar system, i made contact with an alien race. they didn't like me, but were not completely hostile, so i decided to do a mission for 'em. my new "friends" were a race of Covenant... the ones from the Halo series who sat in the giant hover chairs.

the mission brought me into contact with another alien race, who declared war on me for entering their space, or blowing up their turrets, i don't remember. after i completed the quest, i was attacked by the new race i had pissed off. while i was back home defending myself, the Covenant declared war on me as well. allies, maybe. the two aliens were kicking the ever livin crap out of me, and then i remembered, zealots have an ability that instantly converts an entire planet over to your side...

that may have been a bad idea. apparently there is some kind of Galactic Code and mass converting an entire homeworld is really looked down on. in my defense, i randomly picked a planet. when i realized it was a homeworld, though, i said the heck with it, i'm already here. as soon as i did it, in between and during my laughing, i was contacted by 5-6 other alien races i didn't even know were there. every one of them declared war on me for breaking a law i wasn't aware of.

it has been a very hard road, but i'm happy to say that i am slowly annihilating every single one of them. i can't really earn any money quickly because all but two alien races want me wiped off the galactic map. no money for colonies because the money i do earn goes towards upgrading my weapons.

it's hard, but i am having fun. while not intentional, i am actually glad they all hate me. my race crawled out of the primordial ooze and into fairly chaotic space. in order to survive their harsh surroundings, they have had to do horrible things. entire solar systems have been wiped clean of life. they have committed genocide on an unprecedented level, but it wasn't a fight they started. it is a fight, however, they intend to win even if they become monsters in the progress.

i can understand wanting to play a peaceful civilization, but as some have already said, being peaceful doesn't mean you can't defend yourself. instead of sittin back getting your butt kicked, i suggest strapping some bombs on your UFO and nuking some enemy colonies. ignore your own for a while, they can go a few minutes without you, as the enemy fleets usually just fly around your planets aimlessly till you show up.

after you've taken over a few colonies, or destroyed them, those who declared war on ya usually back off a little.

Spore: General / Re: Epic Creatures - You share the pictures!

So, to start, while this is my first post on this forum, i've been reading it for a couple years. After i read this post on the epic creatures, i knew it was time to come out of the shadows and into the light.

Toharks, the creature i've been playing on my third trip through Spore had a random encounter with Necrox's Arinean. It was similar to a movie moment, where watching Diary of the Dead or Cloverfield, you start to think, these zombies or giant monster would be a lot easier to deal with if they just put the camera down. So, what i mean is, he chased me and thrashed many nests and all the rogues i had gathered up all because instead of just running away, i kept stopping to snap a picture.

In an attempt to make new friends, find more parts, or even track down my new nest, i ran into Hydro's Snowstalker. This wasn't the first time either. I ran into him before i stumbled upon the Arinean, but in my hurry to get away, didn't have time for a screenshot. This second time i did manage to get a few, though none were all that decent.

Shortly after escaping the Snowstalker, AhavoRaboTaco's Reeptor landed on me. He chased me for a long time, and killed a few of my packmates. If you look in his hand, you can see him about to toss my friend. Shortly after this picture was taken, I used the spice geyser to get the heck out of there.
