Spore: General / You begin with 100 DNA points in Creature Stage...
« on: September 01, 2008, 04:50:57 pm »
According to the Prima Spore guide (link on my site) you finish the Cell stage with 100 DNA points (35 from start of Cell, plus 65 earned throughout the stage). So I tried making a 100-point creature, and it's not possible. Of course, that's because there are no Cell parts, which are cheaper.

The best I could do is 110: a mouth (75) and 2 legs (35). Not much you can do with that. Eyes are usually considered essential (but not really), for another 10. And throw in 5 points for variation.

So, how about a 125 point creature challenge? I had done a 200 point challenge at the EA forums, and that's going well. But it's hard to imagine making any good 125 point creatures. Here is my pathetic attempt...

I had a sudden urge to re-create my pet dog in the Spore CC. Here she is... Soleil

Her paws really are that big.  ;D

Post your pets here!

Spore: General / Spore creature tags
« on: June 09, 2008, 08:36:03 am »
When I watched the latest video on building a creature, the point where he puts in the search tags, "brown, goofy, claws", I thought... that's it? If I really wanted to find that creature in the sporepedia, it would probably be among thousands of others.

I realize this was just a demo, but maybe we should think about some standardized tags, at least for us forum members. Kind of a classification system...

Some universal tags that almost all creatures should include, like
main weapon type

Then again, I don't imagine everyone would want to spend ten minutes figuring out which tags to enter.  ???

Spore: General / Time for a Sticky Post Update
« on: June 02, 2008, 05:03:33 pm »
I'd just like to point out how old some of the sticky threads are, and maybe we should think about letting them go...

Spore Guide (Jan 07!)
Spore Forum Index - Over 150 Threads Catergorized (Jan 07!)
The Spore Omnibus and New FAQ Project (Dec 06!!)
Important Spore Threads (Sep 06!!)

If not, they need some serious updating.

Spore: General / Vehicle Creator
« on: May 01, 2008, 01:54:41 pm »
I can't wait for the Creature Creator. But I am just as interested in the Vehicle/UFO creators. If only...

Well, I got tired of waiting, did a little research, and found my own Vehicle Creator.

Like Spore, this program uses parts that you combine and texture to make your own designs. It's from DOGA, and it's free. So if you're like me, download this and get some practice in! Post your creations here.

Spore: General / Cannibal creatures?
« on: October 02, 2007, 05:28:27 pm »
I'm thinking if you make a carnivore, it would not be able to attack its own kind. Or could it? This is self-destructive behaviour in terms of evolution, but it does happen here on Earth under dire circumstances. Do you think it's in the game? Should it be?

I think it should, but I seriously doubt it will, considering the mass-market appeal they're shooting for.

Spore: General / UFO vs. UFO
« on: August 22, 2007, 05:52:51 pm »
Anyone else notice the UFO battle in the Leipzig GC trailer2?

At about 2:02 (near the end) there is a UFO with some sort of red lightning ray attacking and blowing up something else. It seems to be an enemy UFO. At that instant, a popup says "Enemy UFO Destroyed!" And something else *garbled text*. Anyone care to translate the rest?

Just thought some of you might be interested in my little Flash game called Microbe Arena. You can play it here.

Spore: General / Earth/Sol system
« on: April 01, 2007, 07:25:37 pm »
I wonder if our solar system will be hidden somewhere in the Spore galaxy, like as an easter egg. And if it were, would there just be monkeys on Earth, or an advanced civilization?

If I don't find it, I will use the terraforming tools and see if I can reproduce it! I wonder if we can move planets... or make them out of asteroid belts. Wow... that would be a powerful tool. From what I've seen, though, Spore star systems don't seem to have as many planets as our system.
