Spore: General / Re: Would "Old" spore have sold more than "New" spore??

I expected a living ecology in the creatue phase, I expected to see herds of wild creatures migrating accross the plains, I expected to see creatures going out and hunting for prey, I expected to see creatures gathering food and making little homes.

What I got was a bunch of dumb animals standing around thier nest not doing anything. It was nothing like what saw in any of the vids.
hes right you know, this cant be will wrights work, hes more of a simulator, it was probably ea who forced him to make this stupid little thing with even smaller phases

Actually, I think it was the guy who came around about halfway through the project (what was his name?  I don't remember)  who tried to add gameplay, because it "wasn't there".
I know this has been mentioned before, but I can't remember the exact details...was it Ocean Quigley?

That really did bug me, though.  I love zoology and nature shows and all that jazz, so I was excitedly anticipating a natural dynamic to the creatures, cause I knew I would spend hours just watching them, but then we got what we got in the creature phase.

Does anyone else think all of the new arms & legs look like insect legs? I mean ALL of them?

I was thinking there would be something... I dunno, new, original. And some "cute" things to go with the new pack.
Oh well.... Some of them look pretty cool.

I'm really, really glad they fixed the background image glitch. That had been bothering me for quite a while, occuring on almost all of my creatures.

I haven't installed the patch yet, but hopefully they fixed a few other glitches because there's not much on the list of things they did..... :( Which probably means they didn't.
I still can't use the *insert name of end-game item here* without crashing.

It does seem that they are predominantly arthropodal.  However, a few look more skeletal to me....

Here's one I just uploaded:

These limbs are awesome!!!  And their so useful for little details, like as eyebrow ridges.

Hello. As you know I am new to this community and spore but I have a major problem. As a person I have trouble doing anything without laid out instructions. This become s a problem in videogames (you know the part of the game were your just walking around wondering what to next.)Spore (at least this space stage) seems to be in a perpetual state of this. In the first four phases there was a list of things we had to do this satisfied me. but once I got to space I was given vague directions to head to the center of the galaxy (which is incredibly hard since the camera is zoomed in and I'm on a spiral meaning I have no idea where Im going and the meter is of no help.) as well as the fact that I basically spend my time randomly doing missions. Maybe I'm OCD. maybe I need structure but does anyone have a comprehensive walkthrough of what I should be doing to progress to the game I'm already almost on the seventh promotion and yet I only have nine systems and barely ever have more money than 100,00. Please somebody. Help me.

Actually, it sounds more like you have a type of ADD, mostly because of the need for external structure.  You might want to get yourself tested for that, to be honest (I recently did, due to a severely flagging college career, and I was diagnosed with ADD, and have learned a lot of strategies in how to deal with it.  I'm also taking Ritalin, which has helped SO much.  As a disorder, it does get overdiagnosed, but it is still very real, so I recommend finding someplace that can test you for that sort of thing.  It is very possible that, instead of ADD, you might have something else that I am not knowledgeable enough to notice). I will say that, though I have ADD, I have no problems at all playing Spore.  In fact, it kind of fits, because I will usually have something around 20 some-odd missions going at once, because I keep getting distracted by other responsibilities/goals, and there is no problem with that.

Also, the destroyed game is saved in your other save-games, so it doesn't really disappear...

Actually, has anyone got the sales for Spore yet?  Know where to find them?  I've been wondering how it is selling....

But, aren't creatures created by God have actual anatomy, have fur, vastly more parts and paint textures, and for the most part, don't look like 5-year-old cartoony abominations? :P

I gotta say, the graphical quality is far superior.

Not to mention that he doesn't even have a mouse!!!  No wonder it took him so long!

It has long been assumed that brown bears (NOT grizzlies) and polar bears had a close evolutionary relationship.

Well they can interbreed which is generally an indication that they aren't that distant, I mean we can't breed with chimpanzee's (Stalin tried it in the 1920's, he wanted to create an army of human/apes) even though we're genetically similiar *shrug*

It'd be nicer if Spore was more challenging too.

Easier solution:  Make yourself dumber!

Wait, The Staff Of Life broke in patch 2? I don't use The Staff Of Life  Much, but I don't think mine broke, I'll check and get back to you. Also you might want to mark this thread as possible spoilers just to let people that haven't reached the center of the galaxy figure it out for them self ::)

I've only gotten it recently, after I installed the 2nd patch, so I don't know if it would have broken before or not, but it certainly is now, and its doing it pretty much exactly how Mighdas says it does for him: just after it gets the planet to T2, the game crashes.  It really stinks, cause I really want to use it!!!

Um....for some reason, The SoL is doing this for me, and I tried doing what you said with the EADM, but it still crashes.....any hints?

How does one break Galactic Code?  Do I have to start murdering my allies or something??

Five bucks maybe, but twenty is totally not worth what you get. Especially in a recession, why would someone pay $20 for additional parts to a game when they could purchase a full game of any other variety for about the same. EA needs to get its head out of its backside, but the only way to do that is for customers to speak up and stop letting them dictate the market.

Anyway, the additions look decent enough, but not $20 decent.

During a Depression, why would anyone pay for Vaudeville??

Entertainment, my friend.

What you consider worthless, I consider worthwhile.
