Spore: General / Where is difficulty level of a saved game shown?
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:26:16 pm »
Maybe I'm just missing the obvious, but I cannot seem to find where in a saved game (after you start up in that game) it says what difficulty level it is (easy, normal, hard).   Knowing from looking at the galaxy view would be nice also, but not my main quest in this thread.   Thanks!

Spore: General / How do YOU kill pirates?
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:20:00 pm »
No, not talking about copyright breakers, but those pesky spice thieves.

I'm wondering if anyone found an attack type that gets them when they run, because it seems like my torpedoes cannot get to catch up to them fast enough, and once they get some distance then they do a quick-heal.   I have the better weapon levels in one game, so if anyone has suggestions I'd appreciate it!

Spore: General / Spore Space Stage Guide at GameSpy (*spoilers*)

Thanks to Wydraz for posting on his site (http://sporemonkey.planets.gamespy.com/index.html) that gamespy just posted a 10 page guide.

http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/spore/908134p1.html

It has some possible spoilers (for some people), but generally covers the basics of space stage with what seem like reasonable suggestions.   I like the way the author points out some better things to acquire or use, and will keep that in mind when I (eventually) get my copy of the game.

Spore: General / Simphoni video demo (8-29-08)
« on: August 29, 2008, 05:32:44 pm »
If you haven't seen it yet, the site Simphoni.net has a video from the community day.   Its about the demo that Caryl Shaw gave the website admins before they started their hands-on.   Note that the audio for this has been available for a while.   Having the video seems to help me a bit in understanding it.

One of the interesting moments in it was where she scrolled through the apparently very long list of accomplishments that one can achieve in the game.   Should add motivation to continue on with it and try new things, just to get them, for those who like to get their 'badges' (note the actual badges are space stage awards per game).

Spore: General / Training for space missions
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:14:47 pm »
I'm training for space missions by reading, er, um, comics.   Like this one.

I started reading this series just a few days ago, and its got lots of topical humor relevant to Spore space action (or at least, hope so).

What're you doing to prepare? ;D

Spore: General / Vehicle ideas
« on: August 17, 2008, 11:02:50 am »
So what's your first vehicle (land attack vehicle in Civ stage) going to look like?

I'm considering making something, perhaps using this silly list of poorly named cars as a source (one or two of them look like they came FROM Spore).

It'll depend upon which civ type I end up starting with as my species evolves, I'm sure.

Oh, and hi, I'm new here. ;)
