Spore: General / Re: Question about other races and UFOs

yes, but he said that they wont have ufos! if they did then they would jus be able to blow your planet out of the sky. would that be fun? i didnt say that hey wouldnt have battleship or something, but the UFOs are just to powerful for a computer. you have to agree on that. mabe they would have intersellar war machines, but UFOs are just WAY too powerful for a computer to have. and  that was the question.

What are you talking about? He never said that computer players can't get UFOs. It's the planet-destroying weapon which he said they could keep the computers from getting. Furthermore, he didn't actually say whether or not they were going to keep the computer players from getting the planet-destroying weapon, he said they COULD keep the computer players from getting it. Look at the last sentence here:

"WW: Oh you see, we control the computer so we can tell it not to do that. So we can allow you to eventually earn that weapon but not let the computer ever earn it. Or only if you blow up their star, and it’s a race … now they're really pissed off at you."

In that sentence, he said that another approach they could take would be to only allow the computer to get planet or star destroying weapons iff you blow up their star.

These aren't set in stone, he was presenting possible ways to prevent "the AI is spoiling my fun by blowing my colonies to smithereens! I haven't done anything to them why are they killing me WTF DAMNIT THIS SUCKS." (And obviously it would be even worse if an AI came around and blew your homeworld up before you even had spaceflight)

This is essentially my point, which is why I was so confused with aname's reticence.

Also, nice quote.

I think its more likely that you have the option of disabling that particular UFO weapon, especially since he has given no indication that there are any other types of space vehicles such as the aforementioned battleships.

If they cant get UFOs and there doesnt seem to be any kind of interstellar vehicle BUT the UFO, then how can an alien species engage in the interstellar war that WW indicated?

they dont et UFOs goodbye the end period.

(Srry if im mean) will himself says that the other races, "wont be in your galaxy" "wont get UFOs" "and wont come and blow up your planet"
(not exact quotes but, its the same point) :)

So, what do you think he meant with the following:

"WW: I think the player has to opt in to interstellar war. And if they opt into it and they want to play an interstellar war….

GS: And then will the computer…

CT: It will have repercussions. Like if you take out a colony on one planet and they're allied with someone else then -- you'll hear from them."

They wont attack you without a reason?  That seems odd.  Its perfectly feasible that we, as a player, would do that, so why shouldnt the comp?

It wasnt really clear to me whether other races would be coming to your planet with their own UFOs.  I think I read that no other race would get a UFO until you do, but does this mean that you can count on other races dropping by your planet, attacking, befriending or perchance just colonizing?
