I have had that happen a couple of times, really cool.  I also found a crashed ufo in my creature stage.  You can't interact with it and it adds nothing to the game but it was fun just discovering it.  I'll post the picture if anyone is interested in seeing it.

Haha, I've seen a bunch of screenshots of that already but that was really awesome! :D
two questions though
firstly, did you just use a hotkey to take the video?
secondly, which creature are you, the cell-ish guy, or the big cyan birdish demon guy?

Anyway you can change your title to something not a spoiler (albiet minor) and put a note that this is a spoiler?

Woo, i had that too :D
It stayed pretty long and abducted 2 creatures of a species that I just had befriended with (damn aliens).

Also, I was almost killed in a meteor shower (which I think was of natural cause, no aliens involved).

And you remember the Yoshi creature from the dev-walkthrough videos? It appeared as an epic in my game and had me for lunch :D I wish I could have taken screenshots, but I didn't know how (PrintScreen didn't work for some reason)

It's beautiful, I live on a planet where at some point a giant planet with a ring around it rises from the horizon, just as the sun is setting on the other side. I almost starved to death just standing there and watching the scene.

I've played through (bit into space with each) with four races now and EVERYTIME I get a UFO encounter and an Epic encounter at almost the same time during the same stages. Methinks scripting, not "random working world" is the explanation.


Through I have to say watching my pack decimated by a Yoshi the size of a small moon was awesome.

Press 'V' to capture to a video, press 'C' to take a screenshot.

Well, I noticed once in creature stage and once in tribe stage, that a Flying Ship visits the planet.

Wierd huh?

Yeah in creature stage I also saw a ufo. It actually abducted the creature I was about to make friends with!

Hey, uh, I thought it was normal, but on one of my planets in creature stage, I was playing and everyone started to run away all of the sudden. I was like, was it something I said, but I turned around and saw the flares of what was obviously a giant meteorite that struck the planet. It started to rain down debris all over the place. I went to investigate but I was sidetracked by some really aggressive creatures that chased me away... Is this normal, did it happen to anyone else?

Post by: H3g3m0n on September 05, 2008, 09:28:21 pm
Yeh that happened to me too. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if it happened to everyone and is scripted =/

I also had a meteor storm at some point.

The game really needs more random cool stuff like that, after I saw it I was hoping for more such stuff happening in the game but it never came :(

OOh yeah! For me everyone ran away from the space ship.
I do remember meteors...

it's too hard to make friends so i kill everyone XD

It probably signifies a mass extinction or something...

Well, you know how after you go into space theres a quest?
(wit hthe crashed ship)

Well, I think those 2 things are connected.

I had a UFO buzz around me and my pack + frog things I was allying with, but as soon as I saw it I scrammed for some cover and didn't move until it left.  ;D


I never found any crashed UFO's but I did find allot of engraved stones and stuff, and there was some kind of sculpted hill with a ramp up it as well.



All the epics in my game were my own creatures, seeing my Missilerack creature all uber big and stuff was cool, though it killed my first pack mate, stayed for a few seconds next to his body, dunno, thought I could drag him home for proper burial or something.  :(



Wish space phase was faster, cant do much in it at the mo, but I had to go to bed so I quit.

Just...JUST! ;D when I allied with a rouge creature and was going to accept it into my pack a UFO came and abducted it lol.

I found the crashed UFO as well,and those strange stone structures...My creature flew through the holes in them,I'll upload the vid I took later.

Looks like were not the first on the planet Nurizeko  ;)

i remeber being abducted myself and i have been searching if this has happened to anyone else. i have had no luck so could you tell me if that can happen? :o
Title: Re: (SPOILER!) Alien abduction in Creature stage!

Dunno, you can try going back 5 years ago when people still cared about this game.

You can't be abducted. Tried it personally, didn't work.


Now, there's been rumors of it, but I haven't really seen any solid evidence for it.
Title: Re: (SPOILER!) Alien abduction in Creature stage!
Post by: Lookatroopa on October 20, 2013, 05:55:22 am
It can't be done. The spaceships don't register the player character as a possible target, and thus they will never make any attempt at abduction.

Or he discovered a bug.

Which, considering how buggy the game is, wouldn't really surprise me.
Title: Re: (SPOILER!) Alien abduction in Creature stage!
Post by: Lookatroopa on October 21, 2013, 05:17:47 am
That'd mean that the game would have to recognize the player character as a non-player character. You'd have to put a considerable amount of effort into even making that possible.

I'm not really super knowledgeable in computer programming, but considering how messed up the game can be sometimes... again, I wouldn't be shocked if the program's integrity was really that bad.
