How would that hurt the community? On other games can you print out cards? No. Then why should they HAVE to let you print out cards in Spore?
It limits the creative freedom of the user. I'm might want to print out card with extra text or modify them in a other way.

The community get hurt actually in several ways. First we you must understand that a community may potential to grow and express new ideas is what i value. So anything that limits any of this thing accrual hurt the community in depend of want other community's allready have. But i can somewhat understand if you do no like to express you self creatively. You might find you think you ar not good enough or simply to lazy to do anything. That OK. But i do no think that is should have any effect on how other want to use Spore.

And even if you can not print your own card from the game it would just be a artificial limitation. Print Screen could easily be use as a work around the no print limitation. So in the end it would only hurt the majority of players that do no know that mush about computers.

For me the biggest reason why i do not like the idea of a "EA printing monopoly" is that it conveys the message that you are not smart enough or trustworth enough to use this tool.

Yes but what I'm saying is that not being able to print doesn't take away any creative freedom, you never had any creative freedom to print anything in other games. If Spore didn't have the creature editor then there would be no creativity involved whatsoever so dont think of not being able to print creatures as a limit to creative freedom, but think of the ability too print them as a way to enhance your creative freedom. Face it too, most people would not be able to make quality prints of the cards.

I think your missing the point. It wouldn't be to have every card out there. Just imagine, your collection of cards would be completely different from the collection of cards that the person your playing has.

Sorry YoktO.

But this topic isn't really about the 3D models at all!

Yokta: Umm right. What would you want to use SPORE models for in other things? The only thing I think they should be able to be used for if they can be exported is to make movies with.

mrrodgers: While I haven't spent time with any of those things, think of how many stupid people abuse things and ruin them for other people.

But anyways, BACK ON TOPIC.

Well lets just pretend what your saying is true. Then look how these models would make artists lazy. Every game mod that would come out would look like it was made in Spore which would get on everybodys nerves.

Well i hope they do not try to limit my ability to print cards or export 3D models. I think that this could severally limit the creativity of the users. Is OK to have some "official" printworks or something but it should not limit the user to do want ever he wish with his contante. I see all ready today a dangerous trend bought on by micro transactions and other interstests that try to limit modding simply because they feel that they can not make money out of it. I do not want a society where all Art and Culture is produse by a elite of copyright holders. To withhold a simple feature like card printing i think is very bad.

They probably WONT let you do that. They could let you print the cards, or even have them print them, or package the cards and sell them in stores, but not export 3D models. Why? Because that is a tool that would need to be licenced, and if they didn't, then companies who sell their software that makes 3D models and costs thousands of dollars could possibly sue Maxis for monopolising the 3D modelling industry.

If you took off the legs then when you go back in the world I think you would be underwater. Because I'm pretty sure that each generation represents thousands of years.

Yeah because computer ink isn't made for that sort of thing.

Console Games / Re: Laugh at Halo 3 noobs
« on: May 12, 2006, 12:21:00 pm »
This here is supposed to be an intelligent discussion site, so if you do dislike Halo 2 for any viable reasons, why don't you actually say why, instead of giving the generic fanboy response #27.

I've played the game. I just dont see it as innovative or anything. I don't see why people would fuss over the series so much, its just like any other FPS and when a stupid "feature" is announced like dual weilding, Halo fans think that its the most innovative thing ever.

Yeah a card game. That would be fun and unique because there would literaly be millions of creatures, you would never be able to catch them all like pokemon and the game could sort of be based on that fact. Then one day when you find your creature you would be like OMG or something. But maybe you could request your own creature to be printed professionally from Maxis for a fee.

Yeah instead of talking about how its the same creature as the demo last year (why wouldn't they use it, that is the creature everyone recignises from last years E3 screenshots), lets talk about how awesome the trailer is. I also really like the music in the trailer, especially right when the UFO goes into space and the drums kick in  ;D

Yes. If they made us print them ourselves, then they would be so inconsistent and "unofficial". You literally wouldn't be able to stack them in a deck because nobody would follow a standard card format. Some people would print on one side only, nobody wants to spend over a hundred dollars so they can print trading cards. That would be as lame as printing Pokemon cards, imagine everyone was playing with pokemon cards they bought then some moron comes in with some he printed on a piece of paper and cut out into a rectangle? It would just be easier if they made a monthly printing or something with updates from the database and printed them and shipped them in little packages to stores at random.

Okay it doesn't even matter, you guys are just pointlessly looking for things to talk about for no reason.
