Hey! Perhaps this is old news but I was at the library today and I was reading Game Informer magazine, it had an article about spore.

Nothing was really new but in a sidebar it talked about galaxies and ownship of them, on the very last line...

this isnt a direct quote because I dont have it infront of me:
Players will recieve reports on how other players deal with their creations.

To be fair Game Informer has been wrong about small detials in games before.  With Grand theft Auto San Andreas they reported working car washes, cars in various states of disrepair and a tactical burglary mission involving gang members.

If anyone with the article handy could do a better job, its the last line of of the sidebar with the picture of the galaxy.

I think I was thinking of this:

You can also track your creations to see where they are being used.

Players will recieve reports on how other players deal with their creations.

I think that means that you can see on a site or something in the game what other people are doing with your creature. Are they killing it on sight? Is it high in that particular food chain? How do they other players like the creature?

I knew I read it somewhere and I found the article. It's from Gamespy: http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/spore/616537p2.html

"Whenever you create something, assuming you're connected to the 'net, it'll be uploaded for the world to enjoy. But it doesn't just disappear. You'll be able to track how your creations are faring around the universe. You'll get regular "Multiverse Reports" that tell you how many people met your species and how they reacted. Is everyone killing your creatures on sight? Are they using the different buildings you've created? You'll get to see!"
