Title: Ancient/Atlantean in Galactic Stage
Post by: Afinati on March 14, 2006, 02:38:52 pm
For the people in this forum who have seen Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, am I the only one who thought of the Atlanteans/Ancients when Will Wright spoke about being galactic gods and watching over the galaxy? If I am the only one, you can just ignore me.

(Is that the wind? Do I hear a buzzing noise?)
(.... must've been my imagination.)

Yeah, I thought of the original stargate movie (since I don't watch the series)
I also thought 'it'd be cool if we could plant some sort of teleporter next to the monolith, but the creatures need to be sentiant enough to use it. That way we could have our friends come visit us.'
Also, it'd be nice to have statues that mached your creature, so that you could put a couple on the planet, and they increese the admeration for your race.

Why don't you watch the series?
And yes, that would be very neat.

'cos I can never organise myself enough to watch full serieses.

I wanted to watch lost, but I kept missing them.

I've managed to watch most of my name is earl, though.

I do like the idea of developing useful tools to give to lesser civilizations and see what happens.  Stargate like technology is a great example, trade and war would be forever changed.

Yep, it would be neat to give a Stargate to a civilization. Other games and sci-fi branches have stolen the idea (Galactic Civilizations). Why not Spore?

By the way, I am just guessing that they stole it from the Stargate Universe. If I am incorrect, sorry.

Yes! Its fun to give highly advanced technology to more primitive species and see what they do with it. (Espeacially since, if they're anything like humans, they'll probally blow themselves up.)

I would like that stargate feature, and then u could also like speak to their tribe with a weird transmitter making them think its a god, and put in laws and shape a society.

Spore Creatures: All hail the godly conversation over where to go out for dinner!!! Wait they're speaking, silence everyone!

Voice 1: No, I want spaghetti!!!
Voice 2: But we had spaghetti last night, how about chicken?
Voice 1: Wait a moment... is this thing on?
Voice 2: Turn it off!

Spore Ruler: We for now on shall worship spaghetti and chicken as the great gods of dinner! Let us pray together!

I think all the cultures and races and stuff from Stargate series, Start Trek Series, Star Wars movies, Farscape and any other sci-fi movie/tv show/ book/ video game ever made will beable to be reproduced from their appreance, technology style and even culture.

yea, I'd kind of expect all the races and stuff from star trek, star wars, etc. alot of the origional series star trek aliens were just human knockoffs, later series such as the next generation and later were more sophisicated, although most were humanoid.

honestly I hope there isn't too much of a profusion of humanoid races in Spore.

of course... the most appealing thing to this idea is the whole "monkeys with guns" aspect

I've said it once before and I shall say it again: I'll be somewhat disappointed if at some point during the game I don't find a planet populated by gun wielding monkeys.

monkey one: OK guys, we are going to pray to the massive teleporter, since we are too stupid to know what it actually does.
monkey two: sounds like a plan. *prays*
portal alien 1: I command you to make your planet peacefull!
monkey one: how?
portal alien 2: erm... make one of you leader.
monkey 2: which one?
portal alien 2: tell ya what... fight for it
monkey 1: how?
portal alien 1: here, take this:
*guns fly through the portal*
monkey 1: HAHA! SUCKERS!
*monkeys run off to conquer the galaxy*





Portal alien 2: were those monkeys?
alien 1: yeah
alien 2: talking mon-
alien 1: yeah.
alien 3: SAMMY! BOB! bed time!

The transmitter may be a little out of it, but I love the idea of the other race looking at you as their god. That would be so much fun! Tell them what to do and all that.

I highly doubt there will be a stargate of some sort in the game because that would make the point of the UFO useless, you can't really have both in Spore.

Spaghetti gods?

It already exists. The Flying Spaghetti Monster. =P

Be touched by his noodley appendage.

yeah, it was good stuff, but they did look at it for a while to think of what it would do.  I also do watch all the Stargate series and I do like that idea, hahah scare those other creatures into submision :P.

I love Stargate SG1 so if they did put something like that ingame, I think I would be the happiest guy in the world.  Imagine that, you could go around creating stargates on planets and enslaving the native races and creating statues in your creatures image, I think I would never leave my computer.  What an awesome concept.

If not in the main game, maybe in a mod or expansion eh?

edit:
I highly doubt there will be a stargate of some sort in the game because that would make the point of the UFO useless, you can't really have both in Spore.

Sure you can have both.  Actaully, having both would work very nicely.  The UFO is like your swiss army knife so to say, you can have one creature of your species travel throughout the universe creating colonies and terraforming planets and the like.  The stargate would be the thing that transports velichles and troops throughout the universe.  So if you wanted to do a full scale land invasion, the stargate would be your tool to do it.  Man, the more I think about this, the more I like this idea.
