Is there a trick to the paint/textures that I'm not catching on to? I apply colors to the 3 different layers, but it never looks how I want it to - I know I can hold down the mouse click to expand the color swatch, but I can't figure out how to get the colors to show up where I want them on the creature. A good example is that peacock on the previous page. I'm not trying to go for a peacock - I'm not going for anything specific really - but once I create something the colors I have a pretty good idea what I want.

Anyone have some good tips on this? Building tips are also appreciated :D

You don't have to put legs on to go to land.. in a more recent video.. I think the TED Conference, Will Wright's creature was a spitting slug or something.

Spore: General / Re: DirectX 10 for spore ? (would be bad)

I would guess it will probably run on both, but probably designed for DX9, Given the timeframe it was primarily developed in, and how Vista has really yet to take hold. Maybe they'll have a patch at some point down the line to run with DX10, I'm no programmer, so I have no idea what that would take, but I'm pretty confident that we don't NEED it to run right out of the box. Like SporeforSure said, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they did that.

I'm glad someone did, I went on a year long hiadus from this site, and missed out on a lot of gems like this

Great game!

I didn't even know this game existed, so I'm glad it was necrobumped  :P

the crazy prices not withstanding, what about Dells XPS laptops? I was toying with the idea of scratching desktops for a couple of years and getting a DTR. Maybe the m1730. I can slap a new desktop together in a few years when the laptop is completely outdated, in the meantime - I'd really like a really high end gaming laptop/DTR

laptops tend to cost to much. plus you got no real option to upgrade anything, but thats your choice.
if you take the XPS one with the GF 8800M graphics chip then its a good choice, but i dont think the graphics power is worth the 2k+ dollars. the one with the 8700M sucks to be honest.
i bet its good enough for this title we're talking bout here.. i dont think you can play big titles of the next yr with it.
but thats just me. another one might say the oposit.

No I agree... it's that line of thinking that has kept me out of the laptop club to this point...the lack of upgradeablity and ridiculous prices. For that amount any one of us could build a desktop that'd blow everything else away... but there's the portability, which I sort of need nowadays. I want to get a top of the line DTR system that I can get a few years out of, rather than a cheaper laptop that can't really do what I want it to.. graphically anyways. Not just Spore, but other games that are spec heavy. So I was thinking of saving up for a maxed out m1730... with the dual 8800s.. it also has the Aegia PhysX card in it, I doubt it will have much effect in Spore, but a nice touch anyways for games that can use it.

Whatever I decide, I know I'll have a new system for Spore, I havn't been this excited for a game in a LONG time  ;D

I want to start completely from scratch, and really take my time evolving my creature in the first couple of stages. Probably on medium, and I'll play through again on hard later on when I'm ready for more challenge

Its handy, cos if you quite enjoy the 'cell' stage, then you can continue to gather DNA points to spend in the editor. Unless there is a limit...

Thats one of the things I'm wondering.. how long are you allowed to hang around and "evolve" in the beginning stages. I understand that the first stage you can probably only go so far before the complexity of your cell forces you out of the tidepool.. but in the creature stage, can we just keep evolving, (or changing if you prefer) trying to find whatever we like best? I hope we can stay in each stage as long as we wish.  ;D

Will Wright stated that you can remain in any stage for as long as you wished. I'm just wondering if there is a total limit to how many DNA points you can earn and have saved in each stage. I hope not.
I may be drunk one day after the pub, go onto cell stage and spend hours saving up during the 'sobering' process :D

Yeah much better said, thankyou! A max amount of points to allow for evolution. :)

and I feel your pain. I'm actually in the sobering process as we speak  ;)

I saw in the pic posted earlier there's an option in the tidepool, so likely you can just hang around in there indefinitely, but in the creature stage, can we just keep evolving, (or changing if you prefer) racking up the DNA points and trying to find whatever we like best?  ;D
