Spore: General / Re: Simple Space Phase Question
« on: September 19, 2008, 12:31:22 pm »
I uplifted a species and they started with one colony/star system.  I allied them and had them attack people.  I basically went in and did all the hard work (took out turrets, ships, etc.) and then would leave so they could take the system for themselves. 

They started with 1 star and after having 30-40 systems, it never changed.  So I have no idea what that refers.

Maybe I'm seeing things, because its really hard to see the animations at the city level.

Whenever I grab a sentient being and drop him by one of my colonies, they at first run panicked into the city. 

My colonists gather around the being, seem to try and comfort him, then he walked into one of the houses with one of my colonists and disappeared.

Something that I would like instead of Sporecast would be Buddy Groups.  These could be groups that contain a list of "buddies" that they can share on sporepedia so other people can use it.

Someone here on Gaming Steve (I forgot who) has a long list of buddies from Gaming Steve.  It would be nice if they could just put everyone in the group and say "Go here for everyone on Gaming Steve".

I have a small empire, four star systems.  I have a mixture of spices in all the systems and can make millions of dollars in no time selling to my own colonies.

I am not expanding my own empire, but I am having a bit of fun expanding an empire that I uplifted.  I pay them to attack someone, then I swoop in and take out the turrets and spaceships for them, and its easy pickings for them!

I've grown his 1 star system empire to about 30.

Spore: General / Re: The Grox (Spoilers)
« on: September 19, 2008, 11:15:48 am »
Has anyone allied with the Grox yet?  I've started the process trying to do missions for them, gifts, using the happy ray, and not firing back at them.  I have the Yellow Face and am about 10 points away from the next Face (Green I think?). and quit last night after dying for the 5th time while trying do missions for them.

Its really frustating that they attack you even when you are in the middle of trying to do missions for them to improve the relationship.

Spore: General / Re: How do YOU kill pirates?
« on: September 15, 2008, 04:20:06 pm »
Once you have the pirate ships targeted you can just hold down the right mouse button and it follows them.  I'm able to easily follow the pirates and track them down when they try to run.

At least it works for me.

Spore: General / Attributes for Creatures
« on: May 21, 2006, 08:33:14 pm »
I've heard a few people discussing the different attributes and I think of two should be added, Quickness and Stamina.

Quickness is different than speed, and there are example in our animal kingdom of creatures that have one or both.

An example of animals that have speed but not quickness are bears, rhinos, elephants, etc.  Basically creatures that are larger and can't turn fast because of their size.

Many small animals such as different rodents are quick but not fast, meaning that they don't outrun their predators but are quicker than them.  I think this would allow you to build small herbivores that could survive against a fast large predator. 

I also think stamina is an important attribute because some animals can also make quick attacks, such as a alligator.  You should be able to have a creature that has a powerful quick attack using stealth but won't be able to chase after creatures if it doesn't kill on the first strike.

Spore: General / Re: Floating, not Flying.

Maybe because I see it flying my mind went to how something like that could fly.  I imagined an animal that had an air sac that it could fill with helium to float through the air.
When I first saw this guy I thought of a flying... well floating creature too, still to me now it looks like a creature that would be in the sky not the water.  But... if you guys all think is a water creature whatever I guess.

By the way Elyas nice name, I'm guessing since you have a wolf you got that out of The Wheel of Time series?

Sure is.  Thanks for noticing.

Spore: General / Re: Will there be Earth?
« on: February 22, 2006, 03:00:30 pm »
I think an Earth on Spore would look pretty sparse to us.  I don't think Spore will able to simulate all the different life that exists on Earth.

If you look at the picture with all of the different creatures, I think one of them might be a floating creature. It certainly doesn't like like it relies solely on those wings to fly.



yea but it looks more like fish or a manatee

i agree, when i saw that creature i immediately thought it was a water creature.

Maybe because I see it flying my mind went to how something like that could fly.  I imagined an animal that had an air sac that it could fill with helium to float through the air.

All you have to do is check the box under options:

{X}  No lame creatures

« on: February 22, 2006, 02:16:05 pm »
I can see where they might have races that are subjugated by your species, like the Native-Americans in American history, but outright slavery might cause some troubles.  I just don't think it would be in good taste.

Spore: General / Re: An easter egg idea
« on: February 22, 2006, 02:13:06 pm »
I think that the funniest easter eggs would be when you are searching using the SETI-like signal.  The radio tranmissions you could receive could be really funny.  Can you imagine if you were using that over a planet and you heard something like, "Nobody here but us chickens!"

I'm sure that the first of seven expansion packs will be for space.
