Spore: General / Time Concept
« on: July 14, 2006, 08:27:16 pm »
After some thinking, I started to wonder something. Will there be a concept of time in Spore? I think that a concept of time would be useful to have in the Civilization Stage, for development time and such, but it would also hinder the content pollination. If a creature was created two hundred million years in the future, then how would it appear in my time era in the game, unless each creature is marked with a game time and uploaded in an order to games that have passed that time era, but then what about people that play and play, and other creatures haven't reached that time yet, would it have to start using the database on the disk? Or, it could just totally ignore time and upload any creature whenever.

However, another thing I remember, is during the GDC '05 presentation of Spore, Will Wright mentioned when he zoomed into the galaxy view, that time is actually passing by millions of years a second, and that other creatures will evolve in time.

So, what do you guys think?
