Will the spore galaxy be only one? or is it randomly generated
« on: September 03, 2006, 08:48:54 am »
I guess it might be 1 single huge online galaxy. I think that would be better right? because you can tell your friends to travel to certain part of the galaxy, maybe tell them to travel to your home planet, so you can see your species in action.

But maybe the galaxy is randomly generated in your computer, and the creatures are just downloaded at random stars inside your computer's galaxy.

Does anyone likes it better if it's 1 shared galaxy? or you think it wouldnt work out?

...It's specifically generated on your computer to fit your play style.

Since the DISCUSSION is OVER, we might as well get off topic.

I always kind of liked the "End of Line" via Tron. Maybe I should add it to my sig.

i think it would be better to have one huge online galaxy

That's a shame, because it ain't happening.

I wouldn't, because of the reason Will said: People would blow up your hard work.

I would like to be able to play with one or two friends, however.


...and what a zing from 762. *Applause*

No, because the Phallicons from Roflcopter 7 will come and blow up your planet when you're offline.

But I do have an idea. You can set up a room, and invite other users to it. It will be an exact replica of your galaxy, but it doesn't effect your game. You can have epic space battles and still not disturb your galaxy.

Hahaha, thanks, i wouldnt want to get spore-burned  XD , I just wanted to know what was the public opinion on this. But you guys are totally right, a shared galaxy would bring some problems.

Its not a matter of public opinion. One of the first things every interviewer has asked is to explain "massively singleplayer."

I think you all misinterpreted the question. We KNOW it's massively single player. I beleive what Dogzer is trying to ask is if everyone's galaxy will be A) randomly created, and no two people will have the same galaxy, or B) if we will all be sent the exact same galaxy, with the same species and planets in the same places, so that if we find something cool in one random corner of it we can tell our friends exactly where it is and they can go see it themselves in their own game with their own species.

Of course, I could be crazy... *twitch*

I think it will be A, it makes more sense as your galaxy is built around you procedurally, but it would be cool to be able to go try and find things like supernovas and dark matter nebula that your friends tell you about using coordinates they give you. Sporepedia will likely not have that kind of option though.

I'm completely guessing here... but it will be A) Randomly Generated.... but my guess is that it won't be completely random... there will be method to the madness.
