Title: The all new and powerful Giganommoth
Post by: The Terminator on July 22, 2006, 12:08:29 am
The Garganommoths were pretty cool, but they we're just for my spore creature (Plus they lacked of originality) here's my creature that I will use in RPGs (I modified there culture and interactivity so that I can be more sociable and involved into Spore RPGs) although if possible, it will be used for my creature in spore.

The Giganommoths

Abilities (Male): Can break ultra-hard material such as Borazon with their "Anvil fists" which instantly absorbs almost any shock, can hold their breaths for 10 minutes and are very adaptable to pressure changes. Male Giganommoths have an excellent immune system. When in battle, they can litteraly rip apart most of there foes.
Abilities (Female): Can break ultra-hard material with their "Anvil fists" but they have to put alot more effort in it then the males and can hold their breaths for 8 minutes and are pretty adaptable to pressure changes. Female Giganommoths have an excellent immune system.

Brief History
Giganommoths (Especially the males) were not always big muscular benemoths. Their species discovered "genetic engineering" which was used to enhence their strenghts and abilities. This was made with the help of extreme ammounts of radiation which in the first try-outs ended as monstrosities and failures. A couple of centuries later, they mastered it. They are still trying to find a way to go further with genetic enhancements. They also had a war over it. There were groups of Giganommoths who were against the WGEP (World-wide Genetic Enhancement Program. Giganommoths have also researched in cybernetics which later allowed them to make mechanical implants to people who had lost body parts or had poor organs. War veterants usually end up with 65% of their bodies becoming mechanical.

The gender ratio of scientists is more then 80% female and the gender ration of soldiers is usually around 75% male (This is obviously caused by the fact that most female are smarter then males and that all males are stronger then females)

More info to come soon..

Nifty picture. I think they'd be a welcome addition. But I have a few things to ask. Why'd you put length as well as height? A vertical standing creature is measured in height, a horizontal creature is measured in length. And wouldn't a 750 year life span be a bit... Much? This creatures body would have to be so quick at regenerating its aged cells that it would be like Wolverine from X-Men. 350 in the Space Age is a high range. As to lifting capacity and body weight, the two are a bit disproportionate. Elephants can drag a few tons but an elephant also weighs a few, and it can't even come close to lifting them. Plus, this creature is 16 feet of pure muscle more or less. It'd weight at LEAST a ton. They're the same height as some Loricatii and a Loricatus weighs 1.2 tons (2400 pounds. Keep in mind they're a slender species, not the Hulk's big brother like yours). So if you want a male of this species to be able to lift a ton, increase their weight to around 13,000 pounds. And Genetic Engineering. Just HOW late into their species development did they discover this? Did they even discover the microscope before it? Gene modification isn't an art that develops slowly, it'd take a century at most to unlock most secrets.

Buuuuuut other than that, I like 'em.

Hang on, there's a few things that I might've gotten wrong, please correct me if so:
#1 This is what I meant: Height (Head to toe) lenght (front of body to tail).......yeah I guess I shouldn't have to put the lenght :)
#2 Yeah it is a bit long, I mainly got the long lifespan idea from the protoss.
#3 Really? That fast?.....does it have to do anything with their age cause if it does, I'll lower their lifespan ???
#4 350 what? years?
#5 That idea sort of came from the hulk....I might change it
#6 Hang on, is 1500 pounds = 1,5 tons? Or is it 15000 pounds = 1,5 tons? ???
#7 I'd say that if it were in our timeline, it'd be a hundred years in the past. It wasn't the first discovery made by the Giganommoths, but it was certainly the most known one in their history.

Post by: Axelgear on July 22, 2006, 08:34:41 am
The Protoss aren't the best thing to go off really... And yes, the regeneration has to do with age. The reason humans change, wrinkle, and shift as they age is because our regeneration speed decreases. That's why children heal cuts in a minute and an adult in ten. And yes, I did mean years. And lastly, a ton is 2000 pounds. You said you wanted every one of the males to be able to lift 7 tons, which is about 14,000 pounds, so 13,000 pounds as a base weight would mean it'd be really hard to lift anyway, but they could at least drag it. Around 28,000 pounds in weight would make it easy. That's 14 tons by the way.

As to your creature learning genetic engineering, that seems acceptable.

They could if they really wanted to, but once they became civilised and made contact with other civilisations, they didn't ever eat another sentient (Sapient or whatever) being. If the Omic and a Giganommoth male were to make contact, the Giganommoth would admire it and show alot of curiosity for it. Even if the Omic began to annoy it, the worse is that he'd get thrown a hundred meters away. ;)

I just realized that it takes 2000 pounds to make a ton. I made a few adjustments. ;)

They'd still have to be hungry to eat them, even then, they prefer large prey.

I'm gonna start drawing a female Giganommoth now. There should be some more info that comes with it on their home planet and culture.

Heh, then why are the males only 5000 pounds and the females 200?

Ok, time for more of my evil pointing out things. Average speed. An Ostrich, fastest long-range land creature on Earth, can only move 50 km/h. That's also because their entire body is 100% dedicated to them moving that fast. The weight, strength, and age ratios aren't that accurate either. Reptiles can live astoundingly long, but like I said, 350 is the high range, 400 being almost impossible. 450 just doesn't make sense.

There population is 3/4 of the average of the other creatures in this universe.

It's the small round head, the smaller body but especially that her legs are closer together that makes it look more "Alienish" then the male ;)

I got that Idea from the Hulk and She-Hulk (Although they never had any romance between them but..... Juggernaut who is somewhat the same size as the hulk has slept eith She-hulk together and they didn't seem to mind it ;))

Um.... I'm not sure how reptiles mate but I'm guessing that it's sort of like dogs. In the first that were mutated showed abit of discomfort, they soon got used to it and found ways...they are also quite fierce/ferocious when mating. ;D

Reptiles have weiners?!? How do reptiles mate? ???

The parents are very VERY cautious when around their young. If they accidently started stepping on them they would automatically remove there feet. Plus the young have an instinct to stay out of their fathers way.

The Omic looks up at the monitor and sees a gigonnamoth, his eyes widen, "WOAHOHOHOA!" he says in surprise, then presses an intercom to his secretary, "durnic, please make those forms 4 times larger..."

The Omic looks up at the monitor and sees a gigonnamoth, his eyes widen, "WOAHOHOHOA!" he says in surprise, then presses an intercom to his secretary, "durnic, please make those forms 4 times larger..."

A male Giganommoth opens a channel from their ship, he gets an Omic on his monitor and shows a sign of curiosity //Such puny but interesting creatures....Greetings, we are the Giganommoths, what is your business here?//

I pretty much just took the same one but slightly changed it (It doesn't look that much green lines and I took the torpedo launcher off):

Nickname: Demonslayer
Lenght: 40 Km
Average crewmen on board: 500
Average AIBs (Artifficial Intelligent Being): 700

The Demonslayer's weapons, includes twin repetetive blasters (At the front), twin plasma beams (Top of the wings), blasters (Bottom of wings), nuclear fusion canon (Top-front) and the Shield generator (Top-back). This ship is quite deadly and destructive.

A female Giganommoth walks in and takes a look at the forms, she looks at the monitor and signs them and faxes them. //There you go little fella....what's the matter...you look a bit pale.//

Not bad for a picture on paint eh? ;D

The Giganommoths homeworld is mostly made up of boreal forests and plains. There are very few tropical forests and two large deserts. The Giganommothian home planet also has around 70% of large oceans for five continents. Its average temperature is 25 degrees celsius ( A bit hotter then Earth's average temperature). Most of the planet's climate is dry but has abundant sources of small lakes and rivers. Giganathia is a planet with twice the mass of earth and has a small moon orbiting around it.

I'll soon make a map of the planet and a diagram of it's solar system.

Is there population very small, because I can't imagine there would be a large enough food source to sustain a large number of Giganommoths, let along I would imagine there would be numerous fights for superiority. :P

Yes , they're population is below the average of all the other species in this universe. I'm guessing 3/4 of the human populatation.

Hope that you didn't miss the fact that only only the males are the large ones (Which are 45% of the Giganommothian population) And that again, they're planet is twice as big as ours. ;)

Edit: You're right, the more I look at them, the more it bugs me. I think it's the stance. The legs are not in "fighting" mode but the hands and fists are. The mass and shape of certain parts are a bit more off, the females head is also too different from the male which makes it look like a different species.... I might change that....

Post by: The Terminator on August 12, 2006, 10:35:30 am
Well before I'm going to re-draw the female, I have two other pictures that I worked on...

This is a backview of the Giganommoth male that I showed you guys earlier:
(http://img331.imageshack.us/img331/126/giganommothmalebackviewcv8.png)
Clearer image here: http://img331.imageshack.us/img331/126/giganommothmalebackviewcv8.png

The shell is quite tough (Way tougher then a turtle's) and like the "anvil fists" it can absorb almost any shock. A Giganommoth will sometimes use it's shell as a weapon but it's prime purpose is to protect a Giganommoth's back incase that it fell from high or that it got back-hit. The spikes on it's shell are a bit dull but it adds damage with a hard enough force. The redish skin on the Giganommoth's neck and head (Which is tougher and thicker then it's black skin but not as tough as it's shell) is, obviously, to add protection to the neck and head.

I hope this gave a better Idea of how a Giganommoth looks.

I started drawing the side of a the Giganommoth male, not qite finished yet (I only drawed the outerskin) I should be done tonight or tomorow...

Two things.

1. No I don't I'm afraid... What is that?
2. You DO know that statistically, your creature couldn't POSSIBLY do anything that strong. A 6000 pound (3 tons) creature CANNOT lift 13,000 pounds! The larger something it is, the denser it is. Your creatures organs would have to be MASSIVE and even with 0% body fat, they'd still be less than 50% muscle, which'd mean they could lift at MOST their body weight, and even that's a stretch. Not to mention that a being with such an intense strain on their body would barely live to 50 in their natural life. Combine that with the Methusela Gene (Which generally multiplies a creatures natural age by 3, even though the creatures organs would still burn out at 50 but let's pretend that doesn't happen for now), they'd only live to 150. In short, the Giganomoths need real retuning...

Ants can lift 50 times their own weight but that's different. If an ant was the size of a human, its legs couldn't even support its OWN weight. As things get bigger, the math gets different. That's why when you double a creature in size, you multiply its weight by 8, not by 2. Humans, even at their most beefed up, can rarely lift their own bodyweight, let alone twice it. An elephant weighs so much it can't even jump, which says it can't lift its own body weight. Heck, a whale is so large, it can't breath out of water for that long. Unless EVERY part of their body, their being, and their existance is dedicated to lifting weights, I doubt they could lift over 1.5 tons.

Sorry to be a downer but your creature just isn't capable of doing the things you say it is.

I changed it to they are able to lift twice there own weight. And that's if they stay still and put all of their effort into it. So let's say there are three Giganommoths that have the same weight, the middle one can grab them both by the necks, direct all of his strenght into his four arms and lift slowly lift them. His legs are extremely stable and he doesn't have to put much energy into them as he does to put in his arms. That sound good to you?
Title: Re: The all new and powerful Giganommoth
Post by: Axelgear on August 12, 2006, 06:27:19 pm
Ok, you're STILL not getting the point. If I just pointed out a creature like an Elephant WHICH IS SMALLER THAN THEM can't lift its own weight, why did you just go ahead and say they can lift TWICE their own weight, which, I might add, is only 1000 pounds less than what you had it at before?! My own creature, the Loricatus, weighs 2400 pounds out of water, and those who are in top physical condition can only lift around 1700 pounds max overhead, and even that's a stretch. They can push much more than their own bodyweight, and I'd agree that a Garganomoth could easily push/pull more than their own body weight with the right footing, but lifting? Never.

And by the way, there's still the lifespan thing going on here...

Oh, and I forgot to address this before. Lung Capacity. A Sperm Whale can barely hold its breath over an hour and it's over 60 feet long. How could a Garganomoth hold its breath for four or five?
Title: Re: The all new and powerful Giganommoth
Post by: stuck on August 12, 2006, 06:50:30 pm
Yes, lung capacity is a big one.

Common animal techniques are lowering blood pressure to near 0 in un-vital organs like fins, blood that can carry extra oxygen, lowering blood pressure, and rushing blood to the brain. And even with all those additions, they can still hold their breath only a few times longer than humans. But with all that muscle, blood would also need to be rushed there or you'd get a ton of necrotic tissue afterwards.

Giganommoths have more muscles pourcentage then elephants

A turtle can live up to around 200 years. It does not heal as fast as Wolverine or the Hulk (I think) so double that and they still don't heal as fast

Yes, because Turtles have INCREDIBLY specialized and slow metabolisms. Ironically, they live this long (Though very rarely) for exactly the same reason. You see, a turtle has such a slow metabolism, its body ages very, very slowly.

And as to Giganomoths having more muscles than an elephant, not really possible. Elephants have TONS of muscles in their trunk, not to mention that if they DID have more, they'd WEIGH more. Elephants weigh up to and including 19,800 pounds (Just shy of 10 tons), which is over 5 times the weight of a Giganomoth.

And yes, I find realism fun. It's a lot mroe interesting because you can think "Hey, somewhere out there, conditions may exist for this thing to be real!"

Actually, most people find realism at least somewhat interesting. It has bonuses mainly in RP (respect for the research, and a way to stop godmoding - not that he would, but in general) and partly for the PnP system we're developing.

What's THAT supposed to mean!?

I mean that I'm not suggesting that he would godmode himself, but that as a general principle being unrealistic is a doorway to godmoding.

Yes I realise that now that as much as I would like a creature with incredible strenght like the Hulk's, it might not be the best thing for RP and it wouldn't really be fair in most cases :P. And I'll admit that it might've led me to god-modding without even knowing about it. I still find beyond possible creatures very intersesting, just as long as they're not too OP. Marvin the martian was pretty interesting too.

#1. Too many weaknesses?
Quote
Armor: Very thick skin and muscles and an almost unbreakable grey shell on their backs
Quote
The shell is quite tough (Way tougher then a turtle's) and like the "anvil fists" it can absorb almost any shock. A Giganommoth will sometimes use it's shell as a weapon but it's prime purpose is to protect a Giganommoth's back incase that it fell from high or that it got back-hit. The spikes on it's shell are a bit dull but it adds damage with a hard enough force. The redish skin on the Giganommoth's neck and head (Which is tougher and thicker then it's black skin but not as tough as it's shell) is, obviously, to add protection to the neck and head.
Let's just say that if you had a hand gun, and you shot them, the bullets would just bounce off.
#2. Well, if it alot of power with it and if the stick was jabbed at their hearts. Even then, if the Giganommoth had some medical supplies with him, he would survive the blow.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. :D
The harder they fall, the more dammage they make with that fall ;D

Anyways, here's that side-view of them I promised:

Terminator, you're being kinda... Godmodish. NOTHING in nature is unbreakable. It may survive a few shots if it's ablative but that's it. Even solid steel dents under the power of a bullet and that's a solid piece. Something natural is going to be fibrous and will not deflect gunfire, ESPECIALLY if it's solid. Also, a full grown brown bear can die from a 3 inch tall, 2 centimeter wide spear blade. A neck, unprotected muscle, doesn't matter, it can be lethal easily.

And by the way, since your creature has a big armor plate and four shoulder blades, they, like Torpals, would probably not be able to touch their back. This means any sort of creature with a knife could sneak behind it, hop up, grab its spikes, and then cut its spine apart. It's also so large and heavily muscular, ANY wound will hit muscle tissue and cause intense bleeding, incredible pain from the nerve damage, and loss of mobility. Their muscles are also so thick and heavy that their lives would be INCREDIBLY short by most standards. 30 to 50 years max. They also have sideways facing, tiny eyes, and are reptiles, which indicates they have poor eyesight, poor hearing, and are probably not descended from predators. Even I could kill one.

For example, the Ryndalians at a glance have none, they live virtually forever (2000+ years), they regenerate quickly, their air can kill almost any opp. at close range, experienced ones can shapeshift, and a few other things. But the fact that they can't breathe any other creatures air can hurt, and most are mentally insane. So they are split up into many sub-groups and this hurts a LOT. So overall their niche is the behind-the-curtain pupppet masters. Their population, even if they united, would still be quite below average at best. I usually RP the younger ones unless its a high-scale war RP, so I don't god-mode in it. And there are others, like the fact that The Alliance of Fates, a collection of subgroups and one of the largest Ryndalian groups, has at most 5 Million Ryndalians, and probally a lot less. Ryndalians try to make up for this lack of numbers by geneticly creating almost limitless creatures. The Council alone has spawned at least thirty-five other sapient species that are loyal to them. and one that isn't Ryndalian weaknesses are subtle and they hide them very well by covering it up with advantages that make them appear to be god-like.

The point is, they could have other weaknesses that they cover up with strengths, but they have to have them. Also you need to tell us so we know you aren't god-moding. I'll give you a chance to speak now.

(And just to point out the Ryndalians did start out weak, actually if you can get around the ZacfHi problem, in a 1-1 head-on fair no weapons fight most wouldn't be all that strong, sure they are supposed to be able to instantainously heal, and grow to 25 foot tall, or shrink and use their small size to smash opponents. But what isn't so well known is thats only the ones that over a millenia old. Which as you may guess there aren't many of those Ryndalians around.)

1. No they aren't. Elephant hide can be pierced by low grade fire-arms very easily, it just does very little damage immediatly. In the long run, elephants die from the infection from the wound. Same with Rhino's. As to the spear, how do you think Native Americans killed bears? They bear leered up, they held the spear up at an angle and the bear's body weight did the rest. As to the back of the neck, every animal has extra flesh there but it's rarely that thick, it's just the spine that's tough.

2. T-Rex's DID have poor eyesight. It wasn't as poor as Jurrasic Park would make you believe but it was pretty bad, and all reptiles have poor hearing by nature. Not to mention the fact that their arms couldn't reach behind their head, and they'd be gutted by the time they realized what was going on. As to killing one with a rocket launcher, you could do it even if you DIDN'T know what you were doing. If you hit an Elephant with a rocket launcher, you could possibly blow it clean in two. Rocket Launchers are POWERFUL stuff.

And by the way, they're more than a little less intelligent. A difference of 15 points is a standard deviation. The smartest of monkeys have 80, most of western civilization has 100 (Believe it or not, based on region, people have higher and lower IQ's), and so on. If males have average IQ 85, they probably don't know how to use a phone.

Males weaknesses: They're a bit dump, the throat, sides of the neck, (Overall, all of their bodies that is covered by black skin, but it's still thick and much harder to dammage then humans) that perculiar vein that makes you bleed to death in matter of minutes when you cut it (Located on all four arms......what's the name?)
How's that for weaknesses?

I don't know.......anyways, here's a Soldier's armor (Urban Camo):
(http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6303/giganommothsoldierurbancamobo2.png)
Clearer image here: http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6303/giganommothsoldierurbancamobo2.png
Giganommoths, being real big and an easy target, have always relied on heavier armor since the WGEP. This perticuliar armor weighs about 700 pounds, it is made out of a strong metal, thick shock tissu (Which usually absorbs piercing blows) and rubber. Their helmet has tiny holes which the soldier can breathe through, but if the helmet's sensors detect poisonous gases, heavy smoke, radiation etc. the helmet will automatically seal the wholes and will provide oxygen for a limited amount of time. It sacrafices alot of the soldiers speed but with support covering their backs, they can be extremely effective. Most Giganommoth forces only include a few thousands so numbers definately isn't their strenght. Sheer brute force and power is what they use instead. The armor covers of their body except for their anvil fists.

G. Armor's features:
-Translator
-Vision toggle (Heat, Night, X-Ray, Normal)
-Ocular enhencer (Sort of like medium ranged binoculars/ weak microscope
-Cooler/heater system
-Long ranged radio transceiver/transmitter
-Oxygen tanks

Strenghts: Usually endures light fire, may start to fall apart with medium fire
Weaknesses: Heavy, reduces a soldier's movement, weak against heavy fire (Tanks, rocket launchers, grenades etc.)

Using their armor effectively along with support, they can make their way to the enemy and go melee on them ;)

............mmm what do you think? Are they godmoddish/too powerful? Borderline? Does it look good? Questions? :-[
Feedback would be appreciated. Thanks :)

For once, it's rather appropriate for heavy armor. Looks to be ablative and solid metal or plastic though, so it may hold off lasers if metal, but solid weapon fire will shatter it like flimsy wood. Not a criticism, just a natural flaw in any ablative armor (Which is why Loricatii armor has underlayers of fibrous materials much like kevlar. It stops most projectiles while the armor reduces the impact force, increasing survivability by a remarkable amount)

Well sort of yeah....but they also rely on support like mortars, snipers tanks etc. Most of them still carry heavy guns which are also best used at close range. Thanks ;D

Usually they use melew combat to finish off the enemy. They use guns to weaken them. Sort of depends on the situation, if the enemy is very fast and are able to stay away from soldiers, Giganommoths will then have to rely on heavy, short range fire again along with support.

I'm going to draw some of their weapons soon....

Wow, Great pic!  ;D

Sometimes they may face a race with less the decent vision, it really helps them in that case. Plus it's way better then if they'd go fighting in bright orange or yellow camo :P. Battlefields of snow and forests really make a difference weither the enemy has bad vision or not.

I did say that they had a mixture between Heavy/hard metal and thick shock tissu. Their whole body is first covered with a sort of strong rubber, then a light version of that tissu (Tan on arms), it's covered by a thicker version of that tissu (grey), and then they put metal armor padding on the legs, elbows, body, boots etc.

Click here for better view: http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/7986/weaponsmu5.png

#1 Plasma Assault Rifle: This is what basic soldiers use as primary weapons. These are one of the most effective that a Gigan soldier could use.
Damage radius: a foot and a half

#2 Nuclear Fusion Torpedo Launcher:  The NFTL is an anti-vehicle weapon that is able to perforate even the most resilient armor and cause extensive damage. It can also be used to eliminate troops in narrow areas.
Damage radius: 12 meters

#3 Duo Plasma Chain Gun: This is one of the soldier’s favorite toys. It takes two hands to operate it and is sure to eradicate enemy troops at short/medium range with thier two spinning turbines.
Damage radius: 3 feet

#4 Photon Sniper Rifle: Whenever the Gigans need to take out an enemy from affar, they rely on these powerful long-ranged weapons. If properly trained, a snipers can take out a lot of troops and strike an unknown fear to the enemy.
Damage radius: a foot

#5 Plasma Sub Machine Gun: Although not the most powerful Gigan gun, this High-Tech SMG can be quite useful to a soldier in close combat/
Damage radius: half a foot

#6 Nuclear Fusion Grenade: These smart grenades make devastating damage once their detonated. These have suicidal AIs that calculate how far they are from their allies and when thrown correctly, the NFG detonates at the moment of impact. This prevents friendly fire from a clumsy soldier or an enemy to throw it back if it were to spot it.
Damage radius: 18 meters

All Gigan weaponery make damage with a powerful radius.

Here's some more camo skins:

Desert Camo

#1 ??? I edited it because there where some sentences that I wanted add and I made a few spelling mistakes and editing doesn't bump your topic :P I don't see where's the problem...
#2 Mmm really? Well they both have four arms, are strong, and are good at fighting but that's about all that they have in common :-\ Their cultures and religions are much different.

What about The Ghulos?

Taking down a Giganommoth squad could feed a Ghulos platoon for months!

And the Ghulos are no stranger to high explosives, I assure you.

Serlan could take the Giganommoth, since we have the Mechs and there fighters as well. Besides unlike the Giganommoth we have learnt too fight stronger foes. But hey that reminds me I gotta update my Serlan >:(

Kool armour and weapons by the way the first weapon kinda looks like i was trying to draw, great job :D

Heh heh, no it wouldn't. There's a thousand and one exploitable flaws, and any race is ready to do so. Ever wonder why the American Army gives their soldiers M4's for long range but a Glock Knife for CQC? It's because you rarely, if ever, get into close quarters with an enemy. The Gigano's may be strong, but so is a major league wrestler. They're still going down if you shoot 'em. And if you say "A gun won't hurt them", I've seen an elephant gun. Believe me, most weapons here will do a LOT more damage....

i am sorry but i have to be honest and say i don't like this race very much, too big, too powerful,  and not balanced, you've made a race that is rediculous and would never become intelligent, this creature might make a good non-sapient creature but you've made it with no weaknesses at all and its just overly powerful and lacks character.

if it was toned down a bit and not so dramatic it would be great, but at the moment it is even too big to make in spore.

#4if it was toned down a bit and not so dramatic it would be great, but at the moment it is even too big to make in spore.
#1 I don't know about you but I like big and powerful. I haven't been godmodding with them have I ???

#2 If you mean rididculous I beg to differ. I believe that I've mentioned a few times that they weren't always like this (They weren't always on the top of the food chain until the WGEP)

#3
Males weaknesses: They're a bit dump, the throat, sides of the neck, (Overall, all of their bodies that is covered by black skin, but it's still thick and much harder to dammage then humans) that perculiar vein that makes you bleed to death in matter of minutes when you cut it (Located on all four arms......what's the name?)
How's that for weaknesses?

#4
The Garganommoths were pretty cool, but they we're just for my spore creature (Plus they lacked of originality) here's my creature that I will use in RPGs (I modified there culture and interactivity so that I can be more sociable and involved into Spore RPGs) although if possible, it will be used for my creature in spore.

Sorry I thought that you meant hand on hand fighting. If a Gigan wasn't armored, of course an elephant gun would kill them. I also meant that one of there tactics is to aproach the enemy while firing and getting support fire....

Well anyways I painted a new image which shows you the four different races of Giganommoths (Males) after they have been genitically enhanced.

Clearer image here: http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/4594/giganommothracessw9.png
Note that when the process of the genetic alteration kept most of their physical traits...

#1 Race: Bozarott
Average Height: 15 feet
Average Weight: 10000 pounds

#2 Race: Rashknaz
Average Height: 13 feet
Average Weight: 9000 pounds
Description: The Rashknaz, are the smallest but fasttest of the Giganommoth race. The front is slightly bigger and smoother then the rest.

#3 Race: Zeratuk
Average Height: 15 feet
Average Weight: 9500 pounds
Description: These Giganommoths had developped bigger eyes and a longer tongue then the others. They evolved near and in the mountains which made them natural climbers. They are quite agile but not as agile as the Rashknaz. They are more adapted to cooler temperatures.

#4 Race: Gyshnuke
Average Height: 17 feet
Average Weight: 12000 pounds
Description: This race is the largest and heaviest ones of them. They live in the savanahs and can be sometimes found in the deserts of Giganathia. Their teeth and fangs are slightly bigger then the other races.

Armored or not, an elephant gun will kill them. Support Fire means nothing if your enemy has armor too, and they're STILL gonna hit you because you're massive and they're probably smaller.

Can't I just say that their armour is like tank armor? It only wrecks when under heavy fire? I was kind of hoping that the Gigans with armor would be the Tank creatures of our Spore universe. They are very slow moving, are weak against heavy weaponary but make lots of damage...

Afraid not. Y'see, a tank has something called Stability. You do not. A Tank has a REALLY low center of gravity and slanted plating. The Gigans (Which are coincidentally a Godzilla creature) are vertical, have no stability, and have flat plating. That means that, instead of deflecting the force, they take it right on. You go from being an armored beast to a wall of slow moving, easily shot meat. Fire in the hole!

So if they were more horizontal like godzilla 1998, they'd have more stabitlity? ??? I would've thought the opposite. :P What about the padding between the armor and the skin? Wouldn't that absorb the shock?
