I started walking over.
"Um... Sorry to be rude" i said "but, who are you?"
"Oh my goodness where are my manners!" he responded quickly "I am the one who created all this! Everything you see around you is because of me." he beamed with pride.
"You're lemurbouy?" I asked.
"What?" he said. "Oh no! Goodness no! Lemurbouy is just this game's game master. He set up these levels and such. There are other GameMasters there could be hundreds of games going on at any moment, It's very popular. Anyone who owns the game can set one up.  Still most games are done here in the company for a rental fee. Very expensive to buy your own. anyway, No I am not him. I am The one who made this possible. I am the one who set up the whole operating system this runs on. I programmed the possibilities the amazing ability given here to create such wonderful places with ease. Say, Have you ever heard of something called procedural anamation? Very intresting concept. Yes, one of the first people to truly implement its abilities was Will Wright. Changed the world. You know, I actually attened William Wright High School. But that's a compleately diffrent story. Besides, I was about to get you your tea. Please won't you excuse me."
"Wait" i said. This was a little hard for me to take in. "So this is a video game?"
"Well if you must use so primitive terms i suppose, Yes. A very popular one at that thank you very much." he responded.
"Why have i never heard of it?" I asked
"Well probably because it hasn't been invented where you come from." he said. "Wait a 75 years or so. If you're still alive, who knows, try this game out."
"Wait, Are you saying we're in the future?" I asked.
"Well technically speaking not physiclly. Your minds are. Your bodys are still back in your own time. Physical time travil so far is not do-able but mentally its an entirlly diffrent story. I say why can't a fun game be enjoyed by people of all time periods."
"Do all people 75 years into the future look like um..."
"Oh this? Its just my avitar. My favorite one actually."
"Well, how is this game possible? This whole thing must take up so much power! Even with Procedural anamation!" i said.
"The trick there is not keeping it all on one system. Any system my game is on is specially connected to the main supercomputer that runs it. I built it with my bear hands. Very powerful. Its a true real thinking computer. amazing. Nicknamed it 'Syphonbyte' It actually monotors all systems running the game. I got an automatic alert that this user was violating the user aggreement rules. Torturing his players rather then giving them a fun adventure. I can't have that happening now can I? The government still hasn't made a decission on how to handle this game. Time travil is a bit of a new and sticky subject. If anything were to go wrong they would have my neck. I decided to personally investagate. Actually i've been watching your party. Very nice job i must say, especially looking at what's been thrown your way here. Must do something about that." he finished
"Would you still like that tea?" he asked

"Yeah...Um sure." i replied
I started to let it all sink in. This whole thing was huge! Amazing! I couldn't believe the size of it. But there was something wrong. Something sticking in the back of my brain. I wasn't exactly sure what. I thought for a second. Procedural anamation...Mind Time Travil...Main Super computer. say...
"What did you call that supercomputer?" I asked as he was almost near what seemed to be a tea set that appeared out of nowhere.
"Oh Um.. Syphonbyte." he responded.

I decided to sit down on the sofa.

(It does fit.  ;))

true, but tamed creatures would have benifits for all also.

Spore: General / Re: Where can the maxis team go from here?
« on: July 08, 2005, 01:44:11 pm »
Hm, that's pretty strange. Maybe Im mixing up EA with Firaxis and something else....oh well, I was almost right about the SimCity thing.
yeah i actually remember the old maxis offical site. before EA owned them. It was really cool. they had a section for each game.
They could use the Spore engine to make lite games that are sold for cheap. An example would be using the vehicle editor as a full game. Instead of commanding the vehicles however, you could directly control them with a joystick. You could play in a variety of gametypes online in huge generated worlds. These lite games could be so cheap because of the content is free for the devs and all it would be is coding a bit.
That's a good idea.  :)

PC Games / Re: Poll: Best "Sim" Game
« on: July 08, 2005, 04:34:27 am »
cool but its from when sim city 3000 came out. The first sims still hasn't even come out for them. let alone sim city 4 or the sims 2.

though it does mention spore just not in so many words. Actually it mentions will wants to make a space colonization game and it mentions sim mars. their was a trailer for that in the livin large expantion i believe. but i don't know what happened to it. i believe it went the way of simsville. (who knows maybe sim mars could have been spore in the very early stages?)

Kind of surprised no one's mentioned this one but I thought of it not too long ago so I'll add: Furbies. Definately no furbies.

furbies remind me of "gremlins" when they're still cute.

*ponders what would happen if he let water get on one...

I don't want to see any kind of shock humor created creatures. Like body parts sticking out of places they should never (and i use the word never in the strongest terms) be, just because the creator things its funny. It really isn't. Though i know it'll probably get done.

I'd like to see a planet full of logos though. The Nbc Peacock and The CBS Eye. Who'll win out? lol.

World Peace or World War?

I carried Oviraptor out of the elevator and set him down. I heard a lound screech and looked up. I saw the sky. Which I was confused about a little. in the "sky" and saw something large coming towards us. Its wings seemed to span further then the width of my house. It looked like a large grey flying gargoyle. It was flying very far above our heads. It noticed us and started to come at us fast. I stood paralized in fear. Just staring.

I was a little confused when just before reaching us the Gargoyle melted away and so did the night sky. It seemed to turn into a daytime cloudless sky. I looked around. The elevators were still there and i looked down and saw the same tile i was standing on earlier. I then noticed that outside the area of tile that made up the huge room was what seemed to be a desert. I heard a Roar. I looked and saw a tiger right outside the tile on the desert. Suddenly that all melted away and the room was surrounded by trees. I could hear the sound of rushing water all around. It seemed like a rain forest. Then it all went away and regular walls and a cealing appared.

"Were you watching that?" A voice called from the other end of the room. "Sorry, i find TV Dreadfully boring at times."

yes, so why not be able to tame them? or at least some of them. it would be pretty useful. (more useful to your race then blowing them up on a planet with no atmosphere. lol. Though less funny...)

no, i know that, i just ment attack by some of the more giant creatures coming across the city and... never mind.

My feeling is that you have to conquer your own planet first before you venture into space, either thourgh trade / war or other means.
But what does venturing into space really have to do with my topic?

TV / Re: MSTIEs unite
« on: July 07, 2005, 04:44:09 am »
I used to watch it with my dad when i was younger and it was on the air. I liked it then and i'd probably like it more now that i'm able to understand the jokes more. I comment out loud on anything i watch now. (Execpt when i'm at movie theaters the i wisper. lol.) Not sure if i do that because of MST3000...

As I was walking into the elevator with oviraptor the lights went out. I picked him up and ran in fast. The lights on the buttons were on so that ment the power wasn't out. I hit the close door button fast and they closed. I don't know why but i felt we had just avoided something very dangerous. We started moving up to level 50. I looked around at the scared faces on everyone and knew I had the same face on myself.
"So Syphonbyte" I said. "Did you see what the sky looked like? Is it still light outside?"
It was light in the forest but this whole thing had been set up, according to the card. Who knows what time of day it was here.

(I know this is just imaginary but my heart litteraly has been racing and i've been scared stiff since we "entered" the hotel. With every letter i write i feel like i'm really walking through the halls in the dim and dark light...)

If only one fully sentient race (yours) will appear on the planet, where does it leave the rest? After the Land and Water evolution stage and possibly tribal (Hunting for food) will you really need to deal with them too much?(unless they can attack your city or something) Sure their'll be a lot of fun stuff to do with genetic modification and abduction and stuff like that, but that doesn't seem like it'll really benifit your creatures in anyway.(Though it will be fun. lol.)

Why not be able to tame some of the wild creatures and keep them as pets or use them as alternate modes of transportation (like horses). If there were pets it would releve over all stress of your race of creatures probably. (if stress level is a factor in some way(Like the fun need in the sims))
If the creatures were used as transportation at the very least it would save energy and possibly money (since i'm guessing all those tanks cost something.)
It would turn them from an enemy compeating for survival to a much needed resource.
