That's definitely a weird quote, aye...

I've also heard him quoted as saying "we've not had consistent feedback about what people like/hate about the game". Are you kidding me?

On the consistant front I would have to agree.

It seems there are lovers and haters of every phase of the game.

I would disagree, and agree with you, on that same point in regards to the apparent Space Issues.

I have NEVER gotten on those damn forums...the one linked at the top of the page.

Just stay here.

It's the same as any game. Stuff that you seldom see close will not have the same level of detail, to save CPU usage. In civ, there are so many things going on it would be stupid to have all that lush environment that you can only see when you zoom all the way in. Spore is supposed to be for all computers, and I'm thankful of that because mine isn't all that high-end anymore.  :)

True and remember I am not upset at all...not saying it needs a 'fix'!

Besides the hologram screens above seem to show that detail may still be there.  Regardless it is an amazing game. :)

WW: As it is now you have a starship, and usually within 20 or 30 stars distance out, you'll find some other species.

Looks like Will Wright is not playing the same version of Spore as we do.

Makes me wonder if our current aggressive neighbors really ARE a bug.

Ok with the Devs visiting this site often, relatively speaking for a Dev, why can't we get an answer as to wether space is working as intended or not?

Can't we all band together and get an answer on this?  Seriously...I mean I have had no problem yet but the fact that several professional reviews, people here ad hell even my roommate have complained about it makes you wonder why Maxis is being quiet about it....

Will's own comments in this article seem to support the whole 'Space is broken' concept.

Some of the comments to his blog posts are funny.

Real comedic gold there...damn this site will keep me busy for a few weeks!  Good for a laugh! ;)

This game seriously amazes me...

Hell it could be packaged as "Bad Ass Desktop Background Creator 1.0" and sell like hotcakes...

Wow, really beautiful shot

Thanks, I am fond of it!

Share some guys!  Come on!! :)

Take screenshots with freecam in creature/tribe and civ/space, also beam down to the planet and take a screenshot of how it looks :D

By freecam you mean the magnifying glass mode from the Esc screen?

And I do not have the hologram ability, just got to space.

So your saying I will see the old visuals if I do these things?  If so...I did the 'freecam' as you call it and could not get the old creature stage look...

And yes all settings are on high, the same setting through each stage. ;)

Let me start with: I am not complaining.

Now that that is out of the it just me or is there a drastic difference in the detail level between the Creature phase and the rest?  What I mean is that you cannot ever zoom in enough to get back to that detailed view of the world you have as a creature with the blurry distant structures, pollen in the air, trees with light streaming through the canopy...

Eample 1:

Note that in this example from the creature phase you have ground foliage and the gas giant is not completely visible due to the light of the sun through the atmosphere...

Example 2:

In this next example from the Creature phase we can again see both the moon of my home planet and the gas giant just above.  Due to the atmosphere they are hazy and details are not as clear...

Example 3:

In this example form the Civ phase we can clearly see the gas giant in all its glory.  Beautiful in its own right, but I could not get the old view no mater how much I zoomed into the surface...

Example 4:

For the final example, something simple: vehicles on the ground zoomed into.  Where is the foliage from the prior stages?  Where is the atmospheric effects?  Again it is great looking but not the same.

Now I have not spent much time experimenting so perhaps I am just not trying hard enough, but since I am at work and the idea just hit me, I thought I would bounce it off the forum! ;)

Clearly that's not abduction, it's reclaiming ;) it could be possible in game to run into another version of your own spacefaring race eh?

Jennifer is the person for whom Will Wright made Spore.  Good job!


This is why Spore will be played for the next decade!
