Spore: General / Re: Procedural Pooping

I personally think it would get in the way and just be too silly and extraneous. It's like... taking Command & Conquer and having to build a Toilet building otherwise your infantry will slow down and get less effective every 10 minutes.

I think it would be awesome if they didn't release even one more screenshot untill the day it was released, just to spite you.

That's like using a nuke to get rid of an anthill...

Eh, I think it'd add a kind of extraneous and uncontributory element to the game personally. I mean I played digimon on the PS at one point (stop laughing) and in that your creature has to take a crap every so often - but it's often in really out-of-the-way places with no toilets around, so often they just crapped themselves and you got penalised for it since they'd be mad at you and have lower chances of evolving into something good. It just seemed to serve as some dumb arbitrary factor that didn't really mean or contribute anything other than penalising you.

I was thinking about that the other day myself, procedural music would certainly be interesting if you could get the logic of music down in the algorithms so it isnt just belting out a randomly generated cacophony.

Difficult question, given the procedural mechanics. I'd imagine the creature would resort to using whichever is most convenient at the time.

Spore: General / Re: Spore Expansion Ideas
« on: July 10, 2006, 06:13:35 pm »

What i'd personally like to see in expansions if they come along is a total focus on features - little raw content. I mean, the purpose of the game is that we make the raw content and thereby save Will's wallet, but by the same turn if expansions just had raw content in it would defeat the purpose and be disappointing. So say.. for expansions, put in things that give us more possibilities to make stuff of.

Spore: Extraordinary Creatures - adds features such as fire breathing, psychics (prays a certain KS doesnt see this post), and other jazz like that.

Spore: Space Colonisation - adds features such as space stations (orbital and deep-space), dyson spheres, artificial/wandering planets, etc.

They should SO branch that into plushies, too. An xx figurine would be nice, but a super-cute xx plushie? I'd be all over that.

I am extremely disappointed. I read through this entire thread and not once did any of my ytmnds crop up. I'm doomed to mediocrity! DOOOOMED!
