Spore: General / Regarding creature height.
« on: August 22, 2008, 02:29:16 am »
Does anyone know if there is a way to determine the height of your creature? I'm curious, partly since one of mine is intended to be around 2.5 m tall, but there isn't a reference on hand, besides "Max Size= Elephant, Min Size= Mouse".

Spore: General / Idea for representing warfare in Spore
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:48:00 pm »
You know, I've been thinking on how to best represent warfare, land, sea and air, in Spore. In my view, sea warfare will be easiest, given RL fleets generally don't number anything above a few hundred. But even in ancient times, battles with tens of thousands of men took place. So, I think I've come up with a simplified, but reasonable model.

Military units are placed into categories. Main, Support and Elite, all of which have variations in size. The size is represented by tiered "levels", higher ones of which can be unlocked by advancement of technology and population. The sizes would go, roughly:

Infantry- Main:

Size Tier 1: 100
Size Tier 2: 1000
Size Tier 3: 5000
Size Tier 4: 10,000
Size Tier 5: 100,000

Infantry- Support:

Size Tier 1: 50
Size Tier 2: 250
Size Tier 3: 1000
Size Tier 4: 10,000
Size Tier 5: 50,000

Infantry- Elite:

Size Tier 1: 10
Size Tier 2: 100
Size Tier 3: 500
Size Tier 4: 1000
Size Tier 5: 10,000

Land Vehicle- Main:

Size Tier 1: 5
Size Tier 2: 20
Size Tier 3: 100
Size Tier 4: 500
Size Tier 5: 1000

Land Vehicle- Support:

Size Tier 1: 5
Size Tier 2: 15
Size Tier 3: 50
Size Tier 4: 100
Size Tier 5: 500

Land Vehicle- Elite:

Size Tier 1: 1
Size Tier 2: 5
Size Tier 3: 10
Size Tier 4: 50
Size Tier 5: 100

Air Vehicle- Main:
Size Tier 1: 2
Size Tier 2: 10
Size Tier 3: 50
Size Tier 4: 100
Size Tier 5: 250

Air Vehicle- Support:
Size Tier 1: 1
Size Tier 2: 5
Size Tier 3: 10
Size Tier 4: 50
Size Tier 5: 100

Air Vehicle- Elite:
Size Tier 1: 1
Size Tier 2: 2
Size Tier 3: 5
Size Tier 4: 10
Size Tier 5: 20

Battle would be handled in a way akin to the Heroes of Might and Magic series:


Though it would be on a real time world map, with stacks attacking and moving around. That way, you can stay within the technical limits of the game while offering realistic numbers and large-scale warfare, even at levels like that of planetary occupation. Any thoughts?

Spore: Creation Corner / Looking for nation-state detailing system
« on: June 27, 2008, 07:53:26 pm »
Hello. I am currently looking, after having searched through the Creature Making Resources sticky, for a useful format/tool for detailing a nation-state. My race, the Praetyrians, possess an enormous amount of nation-states, and I am going to be detailing the 9 major powers on their world. I would ordinarily use the Civilization PDF found in the sticky, but I do not possess the editing version of Adobe Acrobat, only version 8 of Adobe Reader. I am looking to detail them in areas such as government (not only fairly basic elements like "Technocratic Oligarchy" or "Fascist Federation" or "Ecotheocratic Matriarchic Constitutional Monarchy, but more advanced areas like the head of state, head of government, that position(s) powers..), economy (not only areas like capitalism, liberal mixed economy, moderate mixed economy, authoritarian mixed economy, socialism, communism etc, but also areas like primary products, exports/imports and so forth) and military (not only the head or governing body of the military, but a way to detail the individual branches, ranks, and examples of the most common munitions used).

Homeworld:

Gehtranus IV is a superterrestrial planet, 4th from the main sequence star Gehtranus, located approximately 8783 light years away from Sol. 36,789 kilometres in diameter, it is orbited by three satellites, Ruruak, Mantak and Eiryun. 68.3% of the planet is covered by water, though many of it's oceans have isolated pockets of islands of varying sizes, like miniature tropical archipelagoes. While it has gone through many geographic changes, due both to terrestrial, extraterrestrial and sapientmade factors, it's current landmasses have stood for 139,000,000 years. It's major continents are:

Tamaggun: Located in the southern hemisphere of the planet, this southeastern continent is made up of two distinct landmasses, Futugran, which is circular, with spikes jutting out like an ancient crown, and Tutusan, shaped like a distorted teardrop. Futugran is largely mountanious and volcanic with occasional woodlands and swamps dotting the landscape, the volcanoes being most prominent in the spiked landmasses. Tutusan is a vast grassland, with sinkholes and lakes present, partly caused by heavily industrial operations near geological strata.

Rinas: A large, singular landmass often divided along northern and southern lines due to the presence of the Three Rivers, Risi, Ama and Mut, which cross the vast equator of the landscape. Areas closer to the southern-centre of the continent are generally more mountainious, and several mesa-fields are present close to the continental centre. Ironically, places near the Three Rivers tend to be drier, due to an unknown leeching phenomena and the presence of the Federation of River States. The northern areas are known for their beautiful lakes, popular tourist destinations and the subject of fishing industry alike.

Wynios: South of Rinas and east of Tutusan, this landmass, shaped almost like a bulging letter l, is dominated by rainforests and vast stretches of desert, created by the ancient Empire of Urdus. The coasts tend to be highly rocky, sandy sections being as rare as oasis. A range of mountains dominates the north, worshipped by elements of the theocratic nation of Wyriolz.

Sudul: One of the largest landmasses and located in the southwestern hemisphere, this continent is snowy at it's southern tip and lined by savannah at it's north. This progression is broken only by the marshlands of the mideast, which are thin in air and operate at a temperature unknown to geology.

Birith: Far to the midnorthwest and similar in shape, though thinner, than Wynios, grasslands and peninsulae dominate this area, like the Mediterranean of Earth. Far north, the great Dam of Yingul is a pilgrimage sight used by religious followers from the nation of Braig to observe the natural environment in praise of their deity.

Arrop: Named for it's major nation and slightly north of the equator, this continent is shaped slightly like Africa on Earth, and largely temperate with swamps in the east and woodland in the west. At it's southeast point lies the great Hynr Point, where a giant, triple layered mesa stands among the great plains.

Zellun: A northwestern continent that, despite it's proximity to the northern pole, has a baked, lake-ridden landscape due to a variety of geological phenomena, among them undersea volcanoes to the east. A tiny artificial island is located in the mid-north, created by nearby industrial activities.

Merithia: Not strictly a continent but a gigantic archipelago, Merithia is the coldest and northmost inhabited landmass in all of Gehtranus IV. Originally an enormous Iceland-like continent split off from the northern pole, it was long ago broken up by an undersea supervolcano, which had effects as far as Arrop. Not much is known about the landscape itself, save that it is tundralike and closeknit in geopolitical terms.
