Free Creature Parts in New Patch.
« on: November 13, 2008, 11:38:22 am »
The following email just came in from MaxisCactus... At first glance, it would seem maxis is trying to do some justice to the "Realistic/Scary/Creepy/Alien" crowd... they are great renders. I know I cant wait until the patch! :)


Hey everyone,

 

A new Spore patch is just around the corner!

 

We’ve heard your requests for more parts, and we’ll be releasing 24 new exoskeleton limbs for free in this patch!  This includes 12 new arms and 12 new legs to make your creations creep and crawl along.

 

We’ve rendered out five high res creatures that use these parts in case you’d like to post the news on your sites early:

You’ll also see some other parts here that you may not recognize - we wanted to give you an exclusive peek at some of the new content to be available in the upcoming Creepy & Cute parts pack.

 

Check back to http://www.spore.com/patch soon to get the patch notes and more details about the free limbs we’ll be offering!

 

-MaxisCactus

All Hail Maxis!!!!! lol  ;D

Maxis has got to be one of the best at connecting with and listening to thier playerbase.

Finally, we will have parts that are more appropriate for our insectoid or other creations that would have an exoskeleton.

Can't wait for more details on this patch.

Also, that KarnlyKnight creature looks very alien for sure :)

edit: The LadyDragon looks like a pretty good rendition of a Chinese Dragon.

Overall really, we will have parts that will actually mesh with the strike weapons (the scythe types are mostly insect inspired).

Those creatures look great in hi-res.  I really want them to release that maya exporter.  I just want to be able to pose my creatures.

*applauds*
Despite all the constant hassle and exaggerated criticism they get given, and the constant drone of conspiracy-theoryish "its all for money, boycott it, they're building a new world order on blind purchases!", they're going to give us some free bits. For better or worse, I always try to have faith in Maxis. Hopefully the ungrateful masses at the officlal Spore forums will stop ranting for a little while now.

I shall enjoy them, with mucous-dripping genetically spliced zeal. >:3

I'm not really worried about free arms and legs...

Can they tell us anything about how many glitches this patch is going to fix, and if it's even going to install, unlike the last two?

FREEPARTS?! LIES! This is maxis, for sure it will have a small fee attached to it!

Of course, they will accept the 'small' fee of just your remaining dignity..... oh yeah, and your immortal soul.

We'll see when the patch notes come out and I'm sure they have been trying to figure out why the previous two patches didn't work so well.

I was expecting exoskeleton legs would look like that.

Sweet deal. Maxis knows how to get everyone to stop whining.

I wonder how soon they mean by soon? Maybe not tonight, but maybe tomorrow?
