Well, I guess this explains why Tom Cruise is so crazy. :-\ (He's a scientologist, if someone didn't happen to know that.)

Ugh... ever since I saw that I was afraid of imaginary things outside dark windows.

At nights I fear to open the curtains, because there could be someone staring at me. :o
And I also fear tripping in the stairs. :o

When I have school, I usually go to bed between 10 and 11. But now it's summer and here it's 1:37 am already... Even me dad didn't say anything, when I walked right past him in the kitchen. So... who cares? ;D

Always trying to be (a crazy woman, to be clearer). ;) Edit: Ah, you changed it.

But it's 1:20 at night (in here at least), so I guess it's all you can expect. ;)

My real name is Elina, I'm a girl and thirteen, and I'm from Finland. That's all you need to know. ;)

Edit: It was so stupid, I changed it. :P

Now 13, turning 14 on 15th July 2006.

I always hate becoming one year older. It feels like clock is ticking, tick, tick, tick... Now you're 13, soon 15, then 18 and 23, and before you even notice you're 82 and wondering, what the hell did you do your whole life. And a day after you die the scientists will find a way to stop aging. :P

Im from Sweden... the snow never melts away, I hate it  >:(

You should never go to Sweden or you will get cold

I feel your pain... Thank goodness, it's summer already. But now it's too hot. :-\ No matter how it is, it is always the wrong way.

WTF?? Bastardman registered 4 days after me, and he has like 360 more posts than I do!!! :o

Oh well, I guess I'm really not that active poster anyway. Or maybe I just have a life. Wait a minute... *going through notebooks* "Ah, there it is!"
Yesterday I spent the whole day reading Formula 1 forums. A day before yesterday I... What day was it? Oh yes, Monday. On Monday I used Artpad all day long. On Sunday I watched Formula 1, it was a very boring race indeed, and on Saturday I had to clean up the house a bit. And the whole last week from Monday to Friday I played The Sims 2...

The Question_Asking_and_Answer_Telling_Guy(:P):  And the answer is.................. No, she does not have a life!


Edit: Ehm... Sorry for that. :-\

What? So the other one isn't? (Just kidding. It wasn't actually even supposed to be that great.  :P)

But thanks. ;D Why don't you try making one, too?

Well, the UFO thing you can make can also be damaged. Eventually you might just take on too much and have it destroyed, and need to build a new one. They cant exactly be cheap either. In the videos we've seen, even advanced civilisations with laser technology and odd sort of scatter-flak cannons, they had trouble worrying the UFO. You do however have to realise this was a demo of the game, and it wouldnt look very good if it got destroyed when WW was trying to show us around the game, would it? The presentations skip from section to section, so its likely that that everything was already unlocked. A starting UFO isnt likely to survive as well as a 100% researched and upgraded UFO, maxed out with a maxed out civ behind it.
Then again, saying "maxed out" makes me shiver. There should be no "maxing out" in Spore, damnit!   xD

I agree. You can't just get the UFO and think that now you're unstoppable. It has to be upgraded a lot first or you won't stand a chance against those ultimate (okay, advanced) civilizations with their fancy defence systems and laser weapons. And upgrading the UFO will also cost you. It just won't be that easy. But hopefully not too hard, either.

I agree it would be nice if they included different kinds of UFOs. Like
Quote from: slugfly
The Commander (swiss army knife) includes all the nicest weaponry, laser, planet buster, etc.  Includes tractor beam and the ability to abduct from 5 to 10 creatures (depending on size).  Includes the ability to make First Contact

The Explorer (scout) moves very quickly and is very resilient to damage.  Has minimal weapons and is difficult to spot.  Doesn't include the ability to make First Contact

The Carrier =  multiple versions including commercial, resources and war.  Has a huge capacity for cargo (carries vehicles, 20 to 100 creatures) but moves slowly and has weaker defenses.  Includes only basic weaponry (lasers, rockets).  Includes tractor beam and the ability to abduct creatures or vehicles.  Can initiate First Contact.

It would also be great if you could design all the UFO types by yourself. (Not only the way they look.) You could put weapons on this one and terraforming tools on that one. Also make them bigger or smaller for different cargo sizes. This way you could make whatever is fit for you. And of course these things would also cost you some resources. But I wouldn't really mind if there was only the basic UFO. As long as you could have more than one.

Maybe there will be a way to "click" away from the UFO. I only say this because there has to be a way to do other things like manage your colonies and make them bigger and better (to get more money to make the ufo better) so maybe there will be a button you push and your ufo just hovers in the air and you can go off and do other things on that planet.

Yes, there definitely will. It just wouldn't be a very wise move from WW to make the players be trapped in the UFO once they've bought it. I think the space stage is more like an extension of the city stage, since you just buy the UFO. So being in the space stage wouldn't rule out the city management, and you would still be able to use all the vehicles you used in the city stage.
So you would most likely be also able to transport all the tanks and creatures to where ever you want and start a war. Or you could make a colony to an already populated planet and try defeating it with vehicles made in that colony, like darkstar said.

I would assume that since the vehical editor becomes freely available in the UFO stage that vehicals will have some use at that time as well (say making a city on the planet your invading and pumping out vehicals from there)

Hey, that's actually a nice idea!; the only problem is will the vehicles rival the power of the UFO? I wonder when we get to see what becomes of spore.

And to answer (or at least try to answer) Chaosenigma's question, I think it depends on the level and number of them. If you'd have for example 100 top-class vehicles and one crappy UFO, guess who'd win. ;) And I believe there could be other powerful vehicles than the UFO.

Problem solved? 8)

You guys have some nice ads there.  :) But anyway, here's mine:

http://artpad.art.com/?j0ur1r13sc9w

I spent almost two hours making it, so you'd better respect it.  ;)

(In the beginning it tries to be a bit like in the creature editor, then the finished creature moves to the game. Just to be clear.   ;D)

Oh come on, just let the thread die. There's no reason to keep going on about this.

Oh no, now I'm doing it too. NOOO!! :o

But this is going to be the last post in this thread. Please, do not post anymore. There's nothing to see here.

Edit: Stupid post.

But now it's gone. ;D
