Spore: General / Yet more GA problems
« on: June 27, 2009, 10:25:59 am »
I can't seem to find an answer in any other topic, so I'll make my own.

I installed GA yesterday, and what do I get? THE ENTIRE COMPUTER CRASHES! 10 FREAKING TIMES! Reinstalling fixed the random crashes, but now that I can actually PLAY the game, I can't run any adventures! I run windows XP by the way.

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This I dea I've kept for a while. The idea is that a huge race is held by the United Federation of the Bino. Any race can join with any vehicle. The prize I have not determined. The challenges, (Not necessarily all competitions of speed) would be held on multiple planets, each with unique and special features. There really are no conditions, except win, and no killing unless completely necessary.

Character and vehicle sheet:

 Team name:

 Character (Can be multiple)
Bio (I require this):

Name(Not required):
Max. Speed:

You can have as many teams as you want.

Spore: Creation Corner / Just a creature idea.
« on: April 20, 2009, 08:26:43 pm »

I originally intended this outlandish creature to fill the space of the Ni'Calls, but... it didn't.
The design began with the question "How crazy can I make a creature and still have it look realistic?" So it's like this.
The head is very, very hard, used for hitting trees to knock food out of them, and stun opponents/prey.
It was originally a biped (Not really) but its 'back' leg evolved into a basic grasper.
The respiratory system is highly efficient, with a constant in one hole and out the other system. The air comes in through the gills behind the head and flows through the body and out the legs to carry oxygen more directly. The back leg was made to look like a tailpipe, like a hot rod, going with the fast runner attribute.

What do you think? I have no idea where to take them... If you like this, I may continue it.

I want to make a chart showing sizes of all the ships used in recent RPs. So if you would be so kind as to either PM as many pictures of ships as you can, or post them here. Thanks!

Spore: Creation Corner / Riethera
« on: March 11, 2009, 08:39:19 pm »
This will most likely be my last creature.

Okay, frist and foremost, "Riethera" is the plural form in their language of the name Riether, this species:
(This gives you and me a good idea of body plan, which, though, I'm still working on.)

The Riether are a race of reptillians originating on Brithora. After their planet slowly started heating up, even their heat regulating back fans could'nt cope with it, so they moved to the more temperate caverns lining their planet. These caverns are a spelunking enthusiast's dream, some tunnels go on for hundreds of miles. Despite their violent looking exterior, they view all-out war as "A waste of valueable time and energy". Riether are obseesed with status, and are determined to be the best.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Ni'Calls
« on: February 07, 2009, 10:18:18 am »

Fist of all, the name Ni'Calls come from the rule of their language that a possessive like belonging to, or theirs, or came from. Ni'Calls means "From Calla", The Ni'Calls homeworld.Their system is simple, with 3 rocky planets, 3 gas giants, and a relatively large star. An interesting part of their system is that it's shrouded in a nebula.(this was the reason for that seemingly random question in the Bino thread. They are amphibious, originating in Calla's oceans. They have adapted to withstand wild temperature and pressure fluctuations, and can "swim" in the nebula. A popular Ni'calls sport is cross-system swimming, from space stations in orbit. Physical features are:

they manipulate objects with their tentacles by the aid of suction cup-like depressions on one side of their tentacles

They breathe by their skin

Their eye is adapted to see in very low light, useful in the ocean depths.

They have no bones, only stiffer areas inside their bodies, this is how you usually find Keyal in the student life RP crammed down the toilets. :P
