Spore: General / Re: Content Seeding Oddities

when you get that last move to new nest quest, just before you move to tribal phase, the path splits three ways (might be more as i haven't really paid attention to that particular feature of the game) all of them ending at a nest that you can make your own.

I think you've discovered those alternate locations for the new nest while you we're not having that particular quest.

Spore: General / Content Seeding Oddities

Played a game from Cell to Space stage and made three odd discoveries during early space stage.

First was when I looked around my homeworld in my newly designed spaceship and noticed that one of the creatures inhabiting my homeworld was the creature phase version of a spacefaring race I made earlier in the opposite end of the galaxy.

This was not entirely unexpected but what happened soon after sure was.

Second discovery was when I discovered MY OWN RACE complete with the same space phase clothing and color running around the woods of my homeworld like any regular creature. That was nice because now I could seed my own worlds with "ecotourists". I now also could seed independent empires of my own creature by uplifting them. Beamed a couple into my cargohold for safekeeping.

Third discovery was when I left out to look for my first neighboring empire, I found them and to my surprise I encountered myself again as an independent empire. I quickly allied with them. Now I could simulate space phase civil wars if I wanted to.

By now I had in less than 10 minutes encountered my own race twice in two different contexts.

Anyone else had these kinds of oddities happen to them?

speaking of destroying earth, i had an idea on how to get the achievement without actually having to lose earth.

what if you saved your game and then planetbusted earth, thus getting the achievement after which you quit without saving.

I've done this and though i didn't save my progress i still have the achievement.

I haven't yet revisited earth so i can't really tell you if it worked though in theory it should, will give an answer later when i've revisited.

just finished preloading spore through EA download manager and according to it, spore is released in 3 days and 5 hours from now. That would mean that it can be played the night between the third and fourth of september for those of you downloading the game through EAdm.

I have one concept: "Mobile Oppression Palace".

I have no idea how it's going to look on editor but i'm imagining a giant walker with a fortress city on its back, complete with industrial plants and gunturrets.

Basically mobile colonies that deploy to stripmine an area of it's resources and then rise on it's 8 giant legs to walk to the next target area. If any natives are encountered they are given the choice to leave the area or be forcibly removed.

This idea depends entirely on how freely we can use the vehicle editor and i do realize i'm going to have to use a lot of imagination to make it "work"

Spore: General / Questions about description
« on: June 19, 2008, 08:59:50 am »
I'd like to know the community (if someone knows, might as well throw in EAs policy on it as well) opinion on writing descriptions for a creature.

Personally i like to write descriptions for creatures as i think it adds a lot more content-wise than just sharing a creature without any description at all, though both approaches have their merits.

1. My question is, that considering the game is made for people of all ages, does mildly profane language ever have a home in creature descriptions if it was censored and potentially made the description more entertaining to read?

2. In addition, anyone else think that the size limitations on descriptions are way too restrictive?
I know i do.
