How do I keep lame creatures out of my planet
« on: February 22, 2006, 01:22:50 pm »
If you randomly get creatures made by other people, whats to stop you from getting a creature shaped like a box or a streight line or things even worse. Basicly, with the tons of crap people will make, how do I keep myself from getting the creatures/buildings/ect. people put about two seconds of time into.

If they were like that they would not survive for long.

well the things that ppl only put two seconds of time into or just randomly put parts on without thinking about it are either not going to be very efficient. I'm sure early on you will see simple creatures, maybe when you have just gone out of the microscopic stage.

we know nothing about how we can filter what appears in your game. though your question is a good one.

Yea they will probably just naturally die off.  By naturally I mean tanks running them over and shooting at them.

Anyway who will go and say "I will rule the Galaxy with my boxes..." or 'Can't wait for Spore to come out so I can make boxes..."

I think it takes more time to create a fully functional box than it takes to create a creature with four legs and a premade head.
No, what we really must worry about are the flying male genitalia.

All you have to do is check the box under options:

{X}  No lame creatures

There will probably be some unseen place where the server keeps tabs on the creature.

Box

Annhialated: 4,275,392 times

Then the server would say "WTF? J00 GET T3H B00T!" and kick if off the server.

I think the server would only pick the best and brightest examples of certain ecological niches for player planets (not just the very best, but y'know, the top 20% in terms of designs). I don't think you'd end up with a planet populated entirely by giant squares unless giant squares somehow managed to get to the top of the foodchain.

There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

Ofcourse you could also play the game without letting it connect to internet for a while.. Will already said that, because of the small filesize of everything, there will be lots and lots of different creatures/buildings/vehicles on the CD/DVD. If you fear getting bad content, I think the only way to prevent that is by not getting on the internet. Or just waiting for a while before you do until all the bad stuff has been seperated from the good stuff..
