Spore: Sporepedia Exchange / Gandysampras' Creatures
« on: June 15, 2008, 06:34:04 pm »
Well I'm back after a loooooooong time for those who remember me so i thought i should post a bit of info on my first creature - The Grekken.

They are a tree dwelling civilisation with extremely powerful arms, gained from travel through the treetop canopy. However due to a lack of use throughout their evolutionary life their legs have become very weak and almost vestigial in nature. For those that remember the grekken from a thread way back, the idea behind them has changed over time, I've made them less and less ape like but the idea of vestigial legs remains.

Spore: Creation Corner / Gandysampras' Creatures: The Grekken

The Grekken are a tree dwelling, ape-like species that as a result of living in the treetops have gradually lost the use of their legs. By the time the Grekken have become sentient what remains of their legs is purely vestigal. They swing through th treetops in their Canopy cities, and when on the ground walk on their knuckles like most other apes.

Everything Else / The Official Game Creation Topic!
« on: June 08, 2005, 05:21:05 pm »
This can be the base for all the ideas and communication for the proposed creation of some kind of game by the forum members, even though this wasn't my idea (you have Borogove to thank for that) i felt we needed a seperate post instead of hijacking others!

So anyway, post your ideas, and intrest if you want to help us out or join the team!(that is if theres enough intrest for this to go ahead!)

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Forum RPG
« on: June 06, 2005, 05:43:19 am »
Standard forum RPG rules apply here folks, one person posts, then another continues the story....anyway, let us begin


On a dark, bitterly cold night, three heroes huddle around a fire, sheltering inside a cave from the fierce winds. They are beginning an adventure, who knows where it may take them, but they each know that they wont have experienced anything like it. One hero stands up after hearing a sharp 'clink' from outside the cave, unsheaths his dagger and slinks into the shadows to ambush whatever it may be. He steps out of the cav to find.......

Spore: General / Exoskeletons anyone?
« on: June 05, 2005, 12:11:06 pm »
Just wondering if we can create creatures that have an exoskeleton like some insects, etc.
And before you say it, i know we have to have a spine, but will an exoskeleton type thing be possible?

How about defensive mechamnisms suh as spines or quills?

Console Games / E.V.O.
« on: June 04, 2005, 02:18:11 pm »
Man, after seeing someone post about this game (snes) i had to pull out the old snes and start playing! I really forgot how great this game was!Definately one to play until Spore comes out, its like a really really stripped down version of spore, but only going from fish to human stages!

What can i say, an awesome game!

Spore: General / Other UFO Tools?
« on: June 02, 2005, 05:36:57 pm »
Just wondering if anyone wants to hazard a guess at what the other 20ish tools on the UFO could be?

Seems like we know possibly 6 of them

1)Genesis Device
2)Volcano Creator
3)Regular weapons
4)Super weapon - (a.k.a.  planet destroying ray)
5)The abduction Beam
6)The communication thingy - (The musical whatsajig)

Im thinkin that some of the others might be:

Land raise or lower - like in the sims
Stronger weapons, but not as massively devastating as the planet destroing ray
Something that affects the climate of the planet
Some kind of gravity ray type device

Anyo other ideas?Post yours here!
