Well, unless we can create our own planets, it seems unlikely that we'll be able to name them... could be wrong, though. Makes sense, as then you could introduce your creature as "so-and-so from Yechtar Ovaris 3." As for creatures, it would help if you get to manually download things from the server network. If you can't name them, all you'd probably get is "Land-based, carnivore, (insert other base details here)." So, untill names are proven or otherwise, I hope so. It'll give you a general idea of what to expect in a creature... then again, who can say outside of those that have the answer?

i think there will be a night day cycle as what it affects nothing just cool may affect tide (the moon affecting it)

That would be really complex to affect the tide wouldn't it?

I guess the simplest way would be to have a timer set by the speed and ecliptic and declination of the moon...but still that's pretty hard in itself.

Actually, will planets have different orbits to each other? so far they all seem to be on the same plane in any given sol system.

well, with modern physics engines etc tides wouldn't be too hard, and as for planets being in the same plane, they do that in real life. But they will probably put in rogue planets in irregular orbits. In the GDC video Will said that he disliked how space was always portrayed as 2-D.

I think clothing was confirmed, but I'm not sure about it.

Q: Will you be able to colonize moons of planets? Would be nice to have a "home" near a giant gas planet  :)

Q: Will you be able to move planets using the UFO?

While this question may have already been awnswered, but what are the plans for mouths? I know we will see many types, such as beaks, and also herbivore/carnivore differences. But I am curious about configuration. Will we have free control of where mouths can be placed? Could we have a creature with no mouth at all?

@TBIG: Probably so. In the GDC demo they showed a bird-thing with many beaks, probably indicating free control of mouth placement.

...Wouldn't that make it extremely hard to eat with no mouth? (Though since the game's more or less creating things at your design, it's hard to tell.)

Will there be different intelligent life on the  starting planets ? by that i mean will there a  different race other than your own on you home planet. From what i have seen in the video so far is that he had only the same race on the planet, at the City stage of the game.
