Spore: General / Spore -- Creating The Ultimate Species?
« on: March 16, 2005, 12:49:01 pm »
One of the most intriguing things I've heard about Spore is that the species you create will be uploaded to a main content server, and everyone who plays Spore will have a copy of your creatures on their own machine. This made me wonder two things:

1) Are your creatures going to be relatively passive while sitting on other people's computers? In the demo it sounds like Will's creatures explored the universe, but it wasn't clear whether or not his own home planet would someday receive a visit from other interstellar travelers, or whether or not they'd pass other UFOs from other people while flying around.

2) If your creatures are relatively active on other people's machines (they colonize and explore around also), I wonder if anyone will be able to create a dominant species? One that masterfully colonizes many solar systems on other people's computers as well?  Or a type of creature that is warlike by nature and attempts to conquer all that it comes in contact with?

I just love the idea that my little Spore offspring could be on other people's computers wreaking havoc. I'm guessing they'll build in some kind of balance or control mechanisms that would prevent this, but it's fun to speculate until we get more details.
