Spore: General / Re: Extraterrestrial

I saw Extraterrestrial, Alien Planet and The Future is Wild.

I would rate them as ..

Future is Wild - 8
Alien Planet - 7
Extraterrestrial - 4

Course the Dougal Dixion Books are much better and Extraterrestrial had pagoda trees which was acually from another smaller version of Alien Planet or Extraterrestrial. I have it on tape too but I am still not sure what the Offical Name of the show was. It was on discover channel and spoke of a few planets. Greenworld which i think was by Dougal Dixion, Epona (which had the pagoda trees), Ring World, Some big gass planet with balloon trees (another rip off Extraterrestrial did) and a heavy gravity planet with bugs.

Here are some good related links..

Ok think of a shark with no dorsal fin and a long snake-like head with one eye comming out like a parascope on its head.

Spore: General / Arcology
« on: June 19, 2005, 12:47:21 am »
If you guys rember back to SimEarth and SimCity 2000 there was a building called an "Arcology". Basiclly it was a huge building that could hold a population the size of a whole city. In SimEarth you could do an "Exodus" and all your population on the planet would leave and move of into some other planet in space and leave the planet to the native life and let eveolution take its course again. Also if you had enough of them in SimCity 2000 i belive they would all take off and the land where they were were open to build on again.

My question is do you think you should be able do that to Spore planets? Meaning if you rule the whole planet you can just pack up your city to your UFO and use those resurces to plop a dome city like was mentioned in Will's speech. This would be no addtional cost than what was sucked up into the spaceship of course.

This way if a planet is is a perfect spot for life to grow up you could set it back to a nice little evolutionary nursery. And see what grows on your planet again. I personally loved the whole concept of an"Arcology".

What do you guys think?

I rolled sad the first time ...
Land
Carnavore
One Extra Eye
Stop

So i was thinking of a hopping one legged little guy with two eyes and a big mouth. Kinda like this but with two eyes and remove the arms and one leg and you got it.

They are from "The Maxx" and are called an "Isz".

Yeha if they don't and somone makes a human they will all look like guys or all look like girls.

This would create for some preaty freaky wars where you have a planet of all guys looking humans vs the infamious "Phallus of Doom". :-\

Well if their name has to do with Llamas or Cows i think that is a dead give away. Since for some reason Maxis has been obsessed with Cows and Llamas even from the early day on up to Sims 2 with them being University Mascots.

Yes the Dougal Dixon books are awesome even if they are 20 years old.

Also his book about earth just inhabited by diffrent human based animals is interesting. Carnavore people, herbavore people.. even parasite people

Maxis Complaint Department

I don't know why they would have such. They need a worshiping department instead.

No matter if the creatures get in the game or not a creature creator to play with would keep us busy until it comes out. So plz plz Maxs if you can hear plz bring out the creature creator before the game comes out.  ;D

It would be also cool to have coral reefs. I supose this can be done using underwater plants, even though coral are animals their reefs are immoble like plants. This could even give rise to parrot fish-like animals that eat the reef. Wee i can't wait to do that if shallow areas are there.
