What is your favorite STAGE?
« on: September 12, 2008, 05:54:26 am »
I like the creature stage. I like searching for DNA and exploring the land. I like playing with the critter itself - not a tribe or spaceship etc. I like changing the creature's looks with the new items I collect. I like that you can make this stage last as long as you like and still explore and gather.

I would have liked the tribal stage to have more tribes to interact with and wish there was a way to add more.

So - what do YOU like best and why?


I live in my own little world - I like it there - everyone knows me.

In spite of the pirates/alien attacks: i prefer the space stage.

Why? When you have worked your way through all other stages, it feels like the sugar on the cake to be able to go "out there" and expand your civ, then go exploring and finding stuff. (Though i wish the reward for reaching the centre was higher).

Probably cell and space, creature phase seems very repetitive to me and can be quite a grind especially as a carnivore.

 I enjoyed all of the stages equally because of how my race interacted in each. Since I tell stories with each phase of the evolution of a species thats a lot of text to write. I spend 2 hours on cell, 4 to 5 on creature and about 1 hour in tribal. Once I get to that point I slow way down. I take days to get out of civilization since Im editing my culture and writing so often. My current race on my one account is the Yahvis. A race of pig like specimens. Very hard working farmers. Sigh anyways I almost cant resist telling there story so Ill just say, all stages because once I get to space with the Yahvis my story expands 100 fold. Im going out searching for giant mushrooms. There IS a reason. :D

I really enjoyed tribe and Civ phase, I just wish they where a little more in depth and a bit harder as I complete both these stages I completed fairly quickly, but I love seeing my creatures fish, and dance and getting weapons in there hands, etc. Plus I like designing the building, cars and planes in civ. Space phase just seems to be dragging for me but the more tools I get the more it becomes  little interesting.

I like cell, creature, civ and space.

Tribal is good but very short. I hoped you can edit tools. Maybe in future.


Civ phase is wild when everibody atacks everibody. I like that.

Cell stage is best for me...which is a little depressing as it is the shortest and most limited. :(

Space, I suppose.  If you take them from start to "finish", space has the most to offer and the greatest set of goals in the way of badges.

Creature, then space. I love designing the creature; I love exploring; I love the beautiful graphics.

I love them all, but I'd have to say I enjoy Space the most, civ the least, and the cell is the stage without any rough edges.

First, can you give a link to your Sporepedia? I want to read!

Second, I've only had time to play through the Tribal. But I have to say that Creature is my favorite so far.

My favorite part is collecting bits, making new stuff, and exploring. There's only so many bits you can feasibly add to your tribal outfit, so collecting them is not as exciting. In terms of exploring, it felt just like Creature only with a high perspective, which doesn't really help when what's new and cool to see is the creatures people made (if only we had hut editors and player created giant plants!)

Cell is IMHO clearly the best designed and implemented stage.  It ends just when your cell starts to get cool.

Creature might be my favorite, because you can really see the stuff that becomes increasingly small in later stages.  The exploring is good, but the repetitiveness of gameplay and the simplicity of creature AI hurts the experience.

In tribal your editing capacity is pretty limited, and in later stages the stuff you create is hardly seen.

I haven't played space much yet.  The mass of ugly maxis creatures drove me back to earlier stages and the editors and sporecasting to build up a population of creatures to find in space

I changed but i think i am at ...

Creature, Tribe, Space, Cell, Civ

Its really hard to pick between tribe and creature. But i dislike civ.

If i had to rate from 1 to 5 with 5 the most.

Cell = 4
Creature = 5
Tribe = 5
Civ = 2
Space = 4

As for Editors ....

Cell = 4
Creature = 5
Outfit = 3
Vehicle = 4
Building = 2
Music = 1
Spaceship = 4

Note these are not what i think the quality of the editor, it just the amount of fun i have when playing. Just like some people like cars while others like animals.
