This add-on has been greatly enhancing my enjoyment of Spore.  The child/parent information is wonderful.  Thank you so very much, immortius!  ;D

Heh.  You're most welcome.  ;D  It's funny that I originally learned about asymmetry from someone who posted a guide here on Gaming Steve - Thanren - though I don't know if this players goes by the same name here.

I'm now trying to figure out how to do asymmetric hands, feet, and limbs.  GrandPeep apparently got it to work with this creature:

There's a hidden singular limb for the eye we see on the left.  If you take away the limb supporting the eye we see on the right, you'll find it.

Over 400!  Wooo!  :D

wow we are up to 300. I wonder how many we need for it to be a significant number.

I think of this in a different way.  If an individual is on the receiving end of this petition and they don't give a hoot about what opinions fans have, it wouldn't matter if 3 billion people sign this petition.  If instead they do care, then even a few dozen signatures may be enough.  Really in such a case it's the truthfulness of the message that would count.  That's not to say a few hundred concurring comments to go along with the signatures wouldn't matter, they certainly would, but petitions aren't an accurate measure of spending intentions.  3 billion signatures on this petition would not mean 3 billion people won't be buying Spore if the petition is ignored.  So to measure this petition based on what economic impact EA might see in it is a fallacy.  It only mean 3 billion people agree with the message in the petition.  This chance of this petition having an impact relies on people reading the petition, signing if they agree, and then presenting the message as a reliable source to those it targets.  Then it's out of our hands and up to EA/Maxis/WW to either consider our words or ignore them.

With the hope that someone over on their end does cares, let's all go out and make some more Spore converts.  Make them believe!  And then show them the petition.  ;)

It was clunky at first (on Windows XP Home), but I got used to the controls after attempting a few creatures.  Now I speed along and throw together a horrible beauty in just a few minutes.  Awesome!  Here's an example:

Is this... is this a dirty Spore picture?  It's Sporn!  I am evil!  Noooooooooooo...

:D  ;)  Love it guys!  Thanks!  ;D

Kit? But at the start it says you were called Mike.


My point exactly!  I say we tie me down, string me up, and interrogate me until I confess to the true nature of this petition - Power the Penguins!

I um... I don't actually have an update.  Just thought I'd respond to that accusation.

Oh!  Thanks for spreading the word, SpaceOddity!  ;D  As well as all you other suspect characters.  "Yeah you.  I don't know what your reputation is in this town, but after the **** you tried to pull today, you can bet I'll be looking into you.  Now the business we have here to for you can speak with my aforementioned attorney.  Good day, gentlemen.  And until that day comes, keep your ear to the grindstone."  -Good Will Hunting (1997)  ;)

Has anyone listed "disbelief" as a weapon?  It's worked exceptionally well for me thus far.  I hammer on a few studs of "ambivalence" for good measure too.  In fact, I can't believe you crazy cats have survived the current outbreak of zombies for so long.  Shouldn't you be dead?  Transformed?  Back?  Knocking on my door at this very moment?  Er... I mean... I don't believe I have a door.  I feel ambivalent towards that knocking sound.

The black and white stripe pattern resulting from slight genetic mutations was enough for those zebras to survive better than those without the mutations.  Over a period of bunches and oodles of years and generations.  Give or take a day.  And eventually only the black and white striped ones were left.  Which is not entirely true since there are other "equidae" which exhibit exotic patterns.  Still the zebras have evolved to become a distinct species.

I find myself voting under the "other" category.  I can't shake the (controversial) question "what if God used evolution as His/Her tool to create life?"  I know that goes against a literal interpretation of the Bible.  But in my ignorance (spiritual and intellectual) I still wonder.

I am older than the sands of Egypt.  Now if you will excuse me, I have some very important young and happy people to be grumpy amongst.

Oooooooo, rebellious!

Indeed!  Soon we shall crush those pasty bourgeoisie under our irrepressible boots of urban discontent!  Or something along those lines.

Hi!  ;D  I'm the author of this petition and I gotta say I couldn't be more pleased about the great response from our communities.  I have read all the comments made by the signatories and overall it's impressively mature feedback.  Once we have bunches of signatures piled up (unique and authentic please), I'll make sure those responsible for Spore view it.  Strapping myself to a homemade rocket and pointing it in the general direction of their studio comes to mind.  So while it is a challenge to have faith in online petitions, we can at least say we tried to communicate our woes to WW and Maxis.  It's the thought that counts and there's still hope that'll count on their conscience.  Evil pasty bourgeoisie!  :P
