Spore: General / Procedural naming-system?
« on: January 16, 2007, 12:11:28 pm »
Procedural naming-system?

a couple of weeks ago a question came into my mind: how will the non-player-based naming-system be handled/working?
we all know that we, the player, can name our species (cool would be to name our creature in the creature-stage btw ;) ), planet, vehicles etc. etc. (but generally, what about cities/colonies, nations, lakes, mountains and mountainranges? do anyone know something about this?)
BUT: if we can name for example our city, how will the computer-player (can) handle this and name his city/ies? will the naming-system be based uppon our own choosen names and try to get as close as it could (possible?), or will it just be generated "on the fly" (procedurally), or (worsed case) due to a predefined file with (fantasy-)names?

i know there are some name-generators out in the net, but some results are somewhat strange....so i have a little bit of a skepticism of how the spore-team will handle this...

what do you think or what exactly do we know about that at this time?


/edit: another idea that came just in my mind: can we name stars or will they have no name until we arrive or also generated on some point of the game? it would be cool, if you could in creature or tribe stage look up into the sky at night, name some constellations and stars and several thousand years later, visit that stars with your spaceship....

Spore: General / every time same galaxy?
« on: March 01, 2006, 02:17:30 am »
I've just thought of that:
when i start a new creature - or game - will it be in the same galaxy as in my first one and can i meet my first creatures on their homeplanet (and their colonies)?
that could become interesting....so you can enslave the population of your first game or wipe it out.....or using for crossbreeding

and if it's always the same galaxy, will i getting bigger every time i start a new game/creature?

questions over questions  ::) (can't wait until testing it ingame ;D)

Spore: Creation Corner / your creatures you're imagine now
« on: February 27, 2006, 07:23:03 am »
are you going to do your creatures which you have now in mind or which you have now painted later in spore?
i mean, are you going step by step until you get your creature that you have painted/imagined some time ago?

i ask, because i ask me the same. i haven't painted a creature yet, but think nearly every time like "that would be a cool creature for/in spore...", but i then ask me that question above.
it's like a someone says "make a creature that you imagine.." and a another says "no no, let's see what you can do with the tools and let's *decide out from the stomach" (as dem bauch heraus entscheiden) (don't know a better english translation for this german saying... :))

i really don't know what way i will chose.... :-\
