Title: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 03, 2009, 05:15:23 pm
Welcome to my very own Spore game.  Bear with me, as my pictures may not be of the best quality.

In this game, we will start by choosing a starting cell, and then by voting and defending your option (in addition to the poll).

Here are our cell choices:

Cell 1:
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGame1.jpg)
A small cell with few adaptations.  They are the most populous, however, and can hunt in packs.


Cell 2:
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGame2.jpg)
A larger cell, which at this point preys upon Cell 1.  They, however, are much slower than Cell 1.


Cell 3:
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGame3-1.jpg)
Smaller than Cell 2, larger than Cell 1.  These cells can move in wave like movements with their cytoplasm, making them the fastest.

Would you mind telling me how you get the cells to look like that? Blur?
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 04, 2009, 05:53:11 am
I painted them using my Intuos tablet, Corel Painter Essentials 4, and Gimp.

To make them I made the basic shape with whatever paintbrush I felt like using for that particular cell, then I added in the nucleus with another paintbrush.  I then added some shading, varying between an airbrush and a paintbrush.  I then export it to Gimp, where I deleted the white and added a gradient.  The first two I just changed the white to alpha, but in the third one I used the magic wand to delete the white (which after that looked like crap, so I went over the edges with the eraser).


I'm glad to see some people have voted so far, I was worried I would be ignored since I'm not as good as Flisch.  :'(

Generation 0

(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration0.jpg)

This is the species of cell we will be following.  He does not like to be called by a number so we will be calling him Spuig for now.  Better names are appreciated.  Spuig is a simple fellow, who spends his time going about the ocean at mid depth, looking for floating cell parts to eat.  A bright future is in store for Spuig, if you can steer them in the right direction.

Now, what should Spuig do first?  (See Poll)

Edit: Changed the name to Spuig
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: UFO King on February 05, 2009, 04:59:06 pm
Mass reproduce, we want a bigger population. And I think Squig is a very good name.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: omegatripod on February 05, 2009, 08:33:32 pm
Mass reproduce, we need greater numbers if we are to survive.
Squig is the name of a pig-like enemy from Super Paper Mario. I'd suggest something else, like Arcian or Squim.

I decided to remove one of my two votes in the Mass Reproduce option.  So there was a tie between Mass Reproduce and Migrate to Deepsea, and everyone is happy.

Generation 1


(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration1.jpg)

Spuig underwent some major reproduction, and as such several new species appeared.  So, to avoid too much competition, this specific species of Spuig cells floated down to the ocean floor.  There is an abundance of minerals in the ocean sand.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6
Diet: Floating Cell Parts
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Floor
Size: Microscopic
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: omegatripod on February 06, 2009, 04:23:43 pm
Improve hunting, that will ensure that they get survival skills. If they just eat minerals, chances are they probably won't evolve much further.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Putspooza on February 07, 2009, 03:26:37 am
The downer the better I say, "Migrate into sand"(whatever that means) should be our next step,
that and finding a way to eat the sand(also, whatever that means)
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 07, 2009, 11:27:43 am
Improve hunting is the winner!

Generation 2


(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration2.jpg)

There were so many Spuig in the area that it inhabited, that a shortage of food developed.  So, a new food source came into being, each other.  Some developed an organelle that releases via exocytosis a chemical that breaks down the membranes of those Spuig that did not develop it.  They then can eat the cytoplasm within.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Other Spuig Without the Cellular Toxin
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Floor
Size: microscopic

As soon as we learn to eat the sand (like earthworms do I guess?), we should learn how to burrow.

Although if we are going to become sapient, we had better get eating something else sometimebecause sand/dirt only has so much nutrients in it.

For now, we can become terrors of the sandsphere, lol.

Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story

Find a way to eat the sand won!

Generation 3
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration3.jpg)

After a while, most of the Spuig without the toxin had died out, but not completely.  To make up for the food shortage, Spuig turned its sights on the sand.  It was difficult to to eat, but fortunately, there was already something that ate the sand.  It was a small blue bacteria that had slits on it.  They could eat the sand by rubbing against the sandy silt, releasing some particles, which the bacteria ate.  Spuig did a symbiosis with the cell, and after a while mutated to be part of the cell, attached at the front where Spuig rubs against the grains.  This new organelle can change the iron oxide into iron and oxygen.  It then utilizes the oxygen and excretes the iron.

Spuig became aerobic.  This will stay until it is no longer needed.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Other Spuig Without the Cellular Toxin
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Floor
Size: microscopic
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)



So no becoming silicon based.  That's just silly.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Yannick on February 08, 2009, 08:46:29 am
Erm, sand isn't made out of iron oxide.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: UFO King on February 08, 2009, 08:51:43 am
Even if it isn't, I demand that we migrate into the sand!
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 08, 2009, 08:52:36 am
Some parts of the sand are.  I said that the sand had lots of minerals in it. Though technically iron isn't, but there are some that do have iron in it, which broke down over many many years to become iron, which then oxidized because there are algae that produced the oxygen underneath the sand.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: smjjames on February 08, 2009, 08:52:45 am
Technically Eukaryotic cells (everything but bacteria) ARE anaerobic, they actually use the mitochondria for aerobic (oxygen using, not excercise) respiration. Learned all this in biology class last year. Remove the mitochondria and they can't utilize oxygen so well anymore.

So, basically, we just evolved our own version of the mitochondria, so I highly suggest that we keep this new organelle.

@Yannick: The sand doesn't have to be literally iron and its WE that are excreting iron oxide, not the other way around.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 08, 2009, 08:53:30 am
Read my explanation.

Edit: I changed it to Aerobic, I had it backwards in my head.

Yea, since that is what we are really doing with the new organelle. It can be a bit confusing at first.

Not really, at least I don't think we are actually breathing in Iron Oxide. Breathing isn't the right word since we aren't multicellular yet, but yea I get you.

Wouldn't a silicon based organism breathe in glass? Even though the cell may be carbon based, the metabolism is definetly heading fast towards something which goes in the category of 'life not as we know it.'
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Putspooza on February 08, 2009, 10:23:34 am
Call it "Cellular respiration"
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: smjjames on February 08, 2009, 10:26:52 am
Call it "Cellular respiration"

yep....

Anyways, considering the silicon based thing, I had read somewhere that silicon based organisms would likely breathe in or out glass (forget which way), but the point was that silicon based organisms aren't likely to utilize oxygen.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of metabolism evolves out of this.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Putspooza on February 08, 2009, 10:39:24 am

Ouch

Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 08, 2009, 10:41:06 am
We won't be doing that.  NO silicon based organisms are going to live on MY planet.

Sorry to disappoint.

Edit: There are none, other than the unadapted Spuig and the bacteria that became our "mitochondria".  There may be stuff down beneath the sand, though.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: smjjames on February 08, 2009, 10:46:06 am
I never said that I wanted to have silicon based organisms on your planet. Just that the metabolism is definetly going to be unusual while the cells are still carbon based.

I was just discussing about silicon based organisms.

Btw, will we get a view of other life forms on the sea floor (if there are any)?

Probably after we get to multicellularity (is that even a word?), I think everything else is single celled at the moment like us.

One could say computers and robots are silicon based life forms since circuits are made from silicon, if that's what you're getting at.

We were talking about organic silicon organisms though.

A self replicating computer could repair itself indefinitely, as long as it had materials, it's programming didn't get corrupted, or something happens to cause so much damage that it can't recover.

As I said, it stretches our definition of alive.

Migrate into the sand is the winner!

Generation 4
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration4.jpg)

Spuig was soon finding it difficult to find enough iron oxide in the sand at the surface, so they decided it was best to slip in between the sand granules.  There is no shortage of oxides here, so they thrived.  There is also a new organism here, a type of algae that under goes a special type of synthesis.  Instead of light, it uses heat to activate chemicals on its "thermoplasts", so intead this is called "thermosynthesis.  It then produces oxygen from this reaction.  The sands here also have some biochemicals on their surfaces. which Spuig can scrape off, so there is no shortage of food here, even with the loss of the unadapted Spuig.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Biochemicals on Sand
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: microscopic
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)



I apologize if I caused anyone to not get in a vote since I updated so early.

Find a way to eat the Algae won!

Generation 5
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration5.jpg)

Pretty soon the biochemicals on the sand ran dry, so Spuig had to find a new source of food.  The thermal algae was abundant, so the decides it best to eat those.  To accomplish this, they gained a very primitive cytoskeleton, which they used to grow a small, but sharp, projection.  They use this to lyse the algae cells.  They are then easily eaten.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Thermal Algae
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: microscopic
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)


I will now add the option "Evolve better speed"

Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on February 10, 2009, 01:56:34 pm
You have it backwards.  An animal can be multicellular, but have almost no coordination between the cells.  Case in point, Sponges.  To have coordination, you need to have tissues, which first appeared in the phyla of Cnidarians (Jellyfish, Hydrozoans, etc.) and Ctenophora (Comb Jellies).

But we won't have to become sponges first, it'll be the same way it was for StG.  And Mass Reproduce adds a population point and adds to the extant species.  Mass Reproduce can also make us multicellular, but I won't reveal me and Flisch's secret(?) in that regard.

Generation 6
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration6.jpg)

The thermal algae did not take kindly to being hunted.  So, to avoid being eaten, they developed a flagella to propel themselves away from the Spuig.  Spuig did not sleep, and soon had rows of cilia on its sides to aid in its movement.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 2/6

Mass Reproduce is the winner!

Generation 7
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration7.jpg)

Due to the abundance of food, Spuig evolutionary line began to split.  One of the new lines was a large bloated version of Spuig.  It was much slower, and would prey on Spuig.  The other one underwent a rather strange change.  Its body became streamlined, and gained a flagella from a symbiosis with the thermal algae.  This new species can also prey upon Spuig, but they also get preyed upon by the large Spuig.


Stats for Spuig:
Population: 3/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Thermal Algae
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: microscopic
Speed: Slow
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)


Stats for Spuigiant:
Diet: Small Spuig, Spuidart, Thermal Algae
Reproduction: Mitosis
Size: microscopic
Speed: Very Slow
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)


Stats for Spuidart:
Diet: Cell Parts, Spuig
Reproduction: Mitosis
Size: microscopic
Speed: Medium
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)



I removed the option to go deeper, since I think it actually makes little sense at this stage.  Let's just say Spuig inhabits all levels of the sand.

Also, I made it so you could choose two options for a reason.  Think about what the combination of two options could lead to.

How about we call the streamlined one Spuidart, because it's directly descended from spuig, and looks and acts like a dart.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story

I'm glad you pointed that out.  I fixed it and changed the name of the fast one to Spuidart.


And about the two options, think, if we both improve our speed and our hunting, then we could eat Spuidart.  Ties could happen if people work together to make that happen.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: smjjames on February 13, 2009, 12:59:24 pm
If the tie says with those two current options, then maybe we can improve our hunting by hunting in swarms to take down bigger prey.

Those Gigantospuig aren't just slow herbivores however.

Quote from: Wikipedia
Binary fission is the form of asexual reproduction and cell division used by prokaryotic organisms

Since Spuig has a nucleus making him an Eukaryote, Binary Fission wouldn't be an appropriate mean of reproduction for it.
You should change it to Mitosis or Meiosis or something

Find a way to eat the Spuigiant won!

Generation 8
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration8.jpg)
After a generation of being hunted constantly by then Spuigiant, Spuig turned around and began to prey upon Spuigiant.  When one Spuig sticks the protrusion on its front into the Spuigiant, the organelles that produce the toxin that breaks down cell membranes changes its function to attract more Spuig.  They all ram into the Spuigiant with their protrusion, breaking down the membrane until it completely collapses.  Another thing that happened this generation was the arrival of a type of Spuig, called a Spuiglet, has floated down from the waters above.  It is a extremely atrophied Spuig that split off of Spuig after it gained the "mitochondria" in Generation 3.  It also lost the toxin organelle because it became to small for it.  It can enter the cell body of the Spuigiant, and eat it from the inside out.  It also is helpful to Spuig since it can aid in the breakdown of Spuigiant.

Spuig gained the ability "Hunt in Packs"

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 3/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Thermal Algae, Spuigiant
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: microscopic
Speed: Slow
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic), Hunt in Packs


Stats for Spuiglet:

Mass Reproduce is the winner!  (Sorry smjjames, I had already started making the picture when you posted that.)

Generation 9
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration9.jpg)

With the abundance of food, the area became filled with Spuig.  To prevent starvation, some joined up together with other Spuig in a elementary form of multicellularity.  Spuiglet remained unicellular.  Spuigiant and Spuidart joined up to form a new creature, the Spuijet.  Despite the added bulk, Spuijet is much faster than Spuidart.  Spuijet does not feed on Spuig, due to the added bulk of two new cells.  Instead it focuses exclusively on Spuidart and Spuigiant.  Due to a decrease in the number of Spuigiant, the Spuiglet began to feed upon Spuig.  This is met with limited success, however, since the two other Spuig can release a toxin into the third Spuig, with kills all the Spuiglet with, but it also kills the Spuig cell as a result.  Since Spuig is now three cells together, it need not call other Spuig to help take down Spuigiant, so it lost the ability "Hunt in Packs".

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Cell Parts, Thermal Algae, Spuigiant
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: microscopic
Speed: Slow
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)

When I planned it out in pencil, the Spuijet looked much better.  And the Spuidarts are supposed to be underneath the Spuigiant, although I could not for the life of me make it look like they were attached.  As for the Spuigs, they are supposed to be in a row.

Grow many more cells is the winner!

Generation 10
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration10-SpuigAlgae.jpg)
After Spuig had grow to three cells, it just kept on growing more cells.  Now it has 10 cells to a creature, arranged in a semi-hexagonal shape.  The very shape of Spuig changed as well, to better facilitate its new multicellularity.  It also lost its proboscis protuberance since it can eat by wrapping its body around its prey.  The thermal algae developed a partial defense to it by becoming multicellular itself.

(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration10-Spuiblimp.jpg)
A new creature also split off of the Spuijet line.  It is now so dissimilar to Spuig, we can drop that from the nomenclature altogether.  This new species is called a Flageplane.  It can move through the water by using the flagella on the 5 cells at the back, and the one on the top front.  The front bottom four moves food into the cell bodies for consumption.

Lost 'Cell Parts' from diet as it is now too large to eat those.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Thermal Algae, Spuigiant
Reproduction: Mitosis
Habitat: Ocean Sand
Size: .4 mm
Speed: Slow
Ability: Can get oxygen from Iron Oxide (Aerobic)

Improve Speed and Migrate out of sand both won!

Generation 11
(http://i440.photobucket.com/albums/qq123/Kenobro/SporeGameGeneration11.jpg)
After growing to a new size, Spuig found it difficult to fit in between the grains of sand.  As such, he simple moved out of it.  Conditions in the ocean changed since he was last in open water.  The water was much rougher, so his speed increased.  As a result, he also became a little larger.  He can use his two fins and tail to move.  His mouth on the top/front is where he can move sand bits of cells into his body.  In fact, his body is hollow on the inside.  This is so that all body cells can receive iron oxide and food.  Spuiglet also became multicellular since we last saw them.  They are now known as Croshats, which Spuig can eat.  There is also two new thermal algae species.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6

Spuig soon found it difficult to locate the sand now that it was out of it.  So, to compensate it gained chemo sensors on the end of its tail, the tips of its fins, and around its "mouth".  Also, the Croshats have evolved since last time.  One of the new species is the Sand Cone.  It is a sessile organism that draws water into the hole on the tube into its body cavity, where it can then be digested.  On the bottom of the cone sticking into the sand is a layer of cells that break down the sand for the body to use.  Another descendant of the Croshat is the Sand Filter.  It to has a sand breaking down layer, but the top is different.  It is a thin sheet of cells with "holes" in it.  In fact, these holes have a net like structure that can trap floating plant matter.  And speaking of plant matter, the two types of algae have now grown to even bigger sizes.  The single stranded algae is now attached to the ocean floor, whilst the three pointed algae floats around.

Spuig gained a sense, and got much bigger.  However, it is too big to eat Croshats now.

As the thermal algae grew much larger, Spuig had to do so in kind.  Spuig is now massive compared to its previous evolution.  Its shape changed as well.  There is also a new species to evolve.  It is called the Iron Puffer.  As a larva, it swims around, filling primitive blood vessels with iron oxide particles, if it survives, that is.  Adult Puffers incidentally prey on their larvae.  Once it settles and becomes a stationary adult, it spews the elemental iron it produces into the water.  It then is oxidized by the oxygen that the thermal algae produces.  When it falls back to the ground, it might diffuse through the walls of the blood vessels, providing it with oxygen.  It is somewhat symbiotic with Spuig, since Spuig can swim through the "smoke" and pick up iron oxides.

Spuig got larger, but also a little slower.

Migrate south (Deep Sea Trench) won!

Generation 14
(http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/5393/sporegamegeneration14.png)
Spuig decided it was best to move to another area of the sea.  in the end, they migrated south.  Here, at the convergence boundary, it is a lot hotter due to the magma.  As such there is an abundance of thermal algae.  There is the typical strands of algae, but no tripointed ones.  There is a sheet of algae growing on the sides of the trench, and floating particles of algae.  There is also green cells descendants here.

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/5464/sporegamegeneration14cr.png)
In the top left corner we have the Rockpedo.  It is a streamlined fish of sorts, with bands of hardened secretions.  I eats by ramming into a creature from above, piercing itself through the prey's flesh when it hits the sand. 

In the bottom left we have the Blood Balloon.  Descendants of the green cell have a primitive cardiovascular system, which pumps when they move.  Incidentally, this means that these creatures breathe oxygen on its own, without having to break down any compounds to get it.  The Blood Balloon can use its singular tooth to suck the blood of its prey.
 
In the bottom right, we have the Thin Razormouth.  It is fast, and deadly.  When it catches up to you, it will bit on and keep swimming forward, forcing its forward facing teeth into your flesh. 

And finally, in the upper right, we have the Finned Razormouth.  It is the direct descendant to green cell, and the most dangerous of them all.  It hunts in a similar fashion to the Thin Razormouth, but it doesn't tire as fast, due to its advanced respiratory system.

That choice has a long way to go before it can catch up with the top one.

Also, we should develop some kind of respiratory system now that we are leaving an area that we had a semi-symbiotic relationship with a creature that supplied the required element.

What element do the blood balloons (or any of the green cells descendants) use in thier blood? If it's iron, we should be able to use that.

Although, I really don't think any of us intend to turn the Spuig into some kind of alien vampire.

Green cell's descendants all use oxygen that is dissolved in the water.  They have gill cells in the balloon at the top of their bodies.  Or if you meant what their hemoglobin is made of, they use copper, which turns their blood blue.  And don't worry about Spuig not being able to breath.  There is still plenty of sand here, Spuig just has to scoop it up into its body cavity now, versus swimming through the smoke.  Although some Spuig descendants will be migrating here eventually, just not for a couple generations.

Apparently there were lots of dangerous creatures in the trenches, so Spuig had zero choice in the matter, all who failed to do the next thing died.  Spuig gained several hard nodules on its body, which serve to deflect teeth and Rockpedo dives alike.  These weigh him down majorly, so he is almost completely sessile!  Also, a new Spuig descendant moved in from the north.

(http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/7535/sporegamegeneration15cr.png)
It is a descendant of the Iron Puffer, though it is much larger.  It is called the Smoke Bowl, and is spews out massive amounts of iron particles in its smoke.  Its larvae are small and fast cell clusters that look similar to its ancestor, the Croshats.  It is one of the species Spuig will never hunt, since it is so beneficial to its existence.  It gets iron oxide by spinning its tails in the sand or againts the side of the trench.  This motion also causes its "blood", which is almost mud, to pump.

We definetly should evolve our senses as smell (which IS a chemical sense) and touch alone won't cut it down here.

I don't think eyes have evolved yet, but even though there is very little light, it would still be an advantage. So, we could develop primitive eyes.

We are going to have to develop an advanced respiratory system if we are ever to go onto land....

Well, due to the extreme pressures in the depths of the trench, it would take a LOT of evolving to do in order to reach sentience. If Spuig migrated to just off the coast, in shallow waters, then there wouldn't be so many extremities and dangers lurking about. Spuig could build small, scattered villages of one or two-story dwellings made out of coral or rock. Then when Spuig discovered the technologies, Spuig could build some sort of reverse deep sea exploration submersible, like a wheeled pod that could go onto land. Then Spuig would build dome cities on the surface and discover the wonders of astronomy, where Spuigkind would eventually put a Spuig on the moon(s) and build moon colonies! Then colonies on other planets, and eventually other star systems! Spuigs would conquer the final frontier! And join the USSS! And conquer the Crimson Empire! And take over all of space and time! SPUIG WOULD BE THE MASTER OF EVERYTHING THERE IS!!!
Or Spuig could just evolve to be some primitive, semi-sentient, deep-sea bottomfeeder. Bleh.

To help better coordinate itself, Spuig gained some nerve clusters underneath its "stones".  They are sensitive to touch, specifically pressure, and are coordinated with one another.  They can't feel pain, but they will know if they are being bitten.  The nerves connecting the clusters are sensitive to stretch, so it will know if it is dragging itself against bare rock, which is harmful to its body.  "How can it know anything?", you might ask.  Because it now has a coordinated nerve system, it became slightly more intelligent.  Also, there is a new species of thermal plant here.  It is descended from the free floating three stranded algae, but the strands have grown much thicker and fused, creating holes in it.

Generation 17

(http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/2958/sporegamegeneration17.png)
Due to the pressures on Spuig by the fast predators, the slow Spuig died out.  The determining factor in those that lived was the pattern of their armor.  Some Spuig had more streamlined armor, like a Rockpedo.  This proved beneficial, so those were able to reproduce.  Those with longer fins and tail also reproduced a lot.  Soon, this combination of characteristics led to the rise of this new Spuig.  Also, Spuig is now way too big to reproduce by budding.  Instead, some of the cells lining the mouth produce sex cells.  It will reproduce by by "kissing" a viable partner.

We should also develop that tail into a more proper propulsion organ. Still, we are already starting to look like those early jawless fishes which were armored in a similar way. That's really not a bad thing to look fishlike as it's still an efficient way of making themselves streamlined.

Once we get to the coast, our next priority should be to develop some kind of optical organ, especially if other things evolved eyes already.

Due to limited success at the trench, Spuig went all the way...
To the coast, that is.  Because they were so fast, the journey was easy, but many challenges await them.  For example, there is an abundance of algae, but not thermal algae.  These are true blue photosynthetic algae.  There is a multitude of colors, but which color will win out in the end?  There are some animals, but Spuig shall have a feast first.

Yea, I think he meant it as in 'the real McCoy'.

There are blue-green algae, but thats more of a pigment and its still green. There are green algae, brown algae, and red algae, so I don't think it neccesarily matters whether any particlar one wins out in the end. Unless you mean the evolution of land plants.

Edit: I don't get what this poll is suppoused to determine, what becomes the land plants?

Edit2: In going with what UFO King said, Cyan, which is blue, can't be a viable option. So you should change that, maybe to green?

Quote from: Wikipedia
No photosynthetic plants would be blue-colored, because blue light provides some of the highest photosynthetic yields in the light spectrum (therefore it is important for blue light to be absorbed rather than reflected).
AHEM!

I don't care.   This is MY game, and I'll run it however I please.  Anyway, if I wanted blue, I would have put it.  Instead, it's cyan, which, if you know current color theory, is in fact a very different color:

Yea, I think he meant it as in 'the real McCoy'.

There are blue-green algae, but that's more of a pigment and its still green. There are green algae, brown algae, and red algae, so I don't think it necessarily matters whether any particular one wins out in the end. Unless you mean the evolution of land plants.

Edit: I don't get what this poll is supposed to determine, what becomes the land plants?

Edit2: In going with what UFO King said, Cyan, which is blue, can't be a viable option. So you should change that, maybe to green?

See above.  Anyway, this is what will become the plant colors, but I had no way of doing it until now.

Post by: smjjames on March 06, 2009, 05:10:37 am
Yellow is also a perfectly legitimate color, simply look at leaves in the fall.

If a tie does happen, maybe we can choose something in between? Since light pink isn't all that different a color from magenta, we could use that as a starting point if that comes out as a tie. Or maybe use red as the starting point for light pink. So, if a tie does happen between yellow and those two, maybe we can do red orange or yellow orange? If cyan somehow surges forward and a tie happens there, then we could end up with the standard terran green.

Honestly though, I think that color wheel is actually a really good idea since we can easily make a compromise if neccesary.

This one's taking me a while to do, since Spuig has so much detail (and I'm doing multiple ones, as well as the other critters living at the coast), not to mention that the shape is hard to do at different angles (and if you noticed I have yet to do him in a non-front view pose).

Yellow won!

Generation 19
(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/7109/sporegamegeneration19.png)

Spuig soon had eaten all of the non-yellow algae in the area of the coast, several years passed by, and yellow was the dominant, and only color in the area.   The surviving color was also a distinct shape, long and super thin, almost hair like, named Hair Weed.  New creatures have now become apparent.

(http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/3436/sporegamegeneration19cr.png)

At the bottom, we have a Spuig descendant from generation 11, called Sand Nerves.  Its colors have changed to match the sand color, and it has yellow tentacles coming off of the top of its body.  It gets its name from the fact that if Spuig, or any other animal not immune to it, touches one of them, it gets a nasty sting, which is especially lethal to Spuig because its nerves are exposed.  They can swim around, with the tentacles hanging downward.  In the upper left, a blue cell descendant, called the Rock Ring Worm.  It is immune to Sand Nerves' attacks, and will usually break off a few tentacles to eat, although it will eat its young whole.  It has an effective predator, in the lower right, which it cannot eat.  It is a green cell descendant, called Spike Vase, from the same line as Rockpedos, but from very early on.  As you can see, from the outside it appears like a poriferan, but on the inside it has a nasty spike that will lunge into its victims.  It will do this at random, you can touch it more than one hundred times, when it just goes off.  It will then retract the spike, hopefully with some flesh attached.  It can't eat Sand Nerves, but they will eat them.

Spuig's diet changed to hair weed.  (also, I'm revamping the stat sheets)

Thanks for this.  I never thought too much about what the side view looks like, except to know that Spuig is much flatter than that.  And the back is almost exactly like the front, except the large one goes up farther to fill up the space where the mouth would have been.

Down is where our armor drags and our chemo senses go haywire.  And we should be seeing some puffers soon, it just takes them a couple generations more to migrate to where we are.  Also, I will be using your suggestion, since it makes the most aesthetic and physiological sense.

((Images will be bigger from now on.))

It happened that some Spuig had a defect in their nerve cells that caused iron to accumulate into fine filaments within them.  This allows it to detect magnetic and electric fields, but only of a high magnitude, because it is such a weak sense.  The advantage to this new sense is that it is the first sense developed that does not require direct contact with Spuig, so they were able to reproduce better, and with so much food around, and its intelligence grew a little too to analyze the information.  Spuig also grew the complementary size increase, but its speed decreased.


Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Hair Weed
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 24 cm

I agree on not developing intelligence, Spuig is still at a 'primitive' stage. If this were Earth, we would still be in the Cambrian, I think. We still have a VERY LONG way to go, and so there is plenty of time to develop intelligence.

(http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/237/sporegamegeneration21.png)
After Spuig got larger before, the green cell descendant responded in kind.  It grew to a massive size, dwarfing Spuig.  After the size increase, its body structure changed.  It was no longer just two holes, but instead it had a large end hole where a huge barbed spike came out, which immobilized its prey.  Afterward, they prey usually stops moving, and sinks.  Hollow feeding spikes then come out of the smaller holes, which sucks away some flesh.  Spuig responded to this by growing much larger than before, although it got slower.  However, the Spike Tower's main barbed spike can crack and break Spuig's armor.

The pictures take me a while to make and I have not received ONE compliment or thank you.  Honestly, I can easily see why Flisch is the way he is.  After so many difficult drawings, and no thank yous or compliments, you begin to feel like some, machine, for producing updates.  I got lots of compliments over on Sagan 4, even from of the better ones.  Unless something drastic changes, I'm not sure I'll continue.

Post by: smjjames on April 07, 2009, 04:50:43 pm
At least they have a more proper hydrodynamic tail.

I'm still picturing something fishlike as that is just the most efficient form of swimming in nature. I think we still have the plates, so a cross between a trilobyte and a primitive fish.

Its going to be wierd when we develop true jaws and we still have our...er...genitals, in the mouth area.

Although the Snaiad creatures evolved jaws and or ate with the second 'head' which is actually the genetalia for them, I think.

I wouldn't blame him, I looked down (didn't read the posts before it) and thought "Why is he posting a drawn penis?".....

It does look a bit like a penis, lol, but so would anything long and thin if you imagine deeply enough.

Improve Speed won!

Generation 22
(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/6471/sporegamegeneration22.png)
Since Spuig grew in size, most predators would keep their distance, except for the Spike Tower, which was immobile and had no choice.  However, a new predator came into being.  It was a quick and small descendant of the Sand Nerves, called Hair Nerves.  They are covered in small hair-like tentacles which can deliver fatal toxins into its victims.  They swim together, and will attack en mass any creature, no matter how big.  To cope with this potential threat, Spuig did everything it could to get faster.  First, its body shape became longer and thinner.  It then grew extra pairs of swimming arms on its front, with membranes to stabilize them.  And finally the tail grew longer, and uses it by coiling it up, and then quickly unwinding, propelling it forward.  However, its defenses have diminished.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Hair Weed
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 45 cm
Speed: Fast
Senses: Chemical (Weak), Touch (Weak), Electromagnetic (Weak)
Brain: 2/10
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none

Stats for Hair Nerves:
Diet: Rock Ring Worm, Spike Tower, Spuig
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 3 cm
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Ability: none
Current Edibility: No


Now, BE HAPPY!!!

It looks strangely humanoid in that position. Probably the two arms and two legs thing that defines vaguely humanoid.

Is it the side or the belly that we are viewing there? just wondering.

The new form looks pretty good really. :)

Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Oblivion2007 on April 11, 2009, 09:43:33 am
Whatever else is chosen improving senses is probably the most important. This is especially important if speed keeps being improved, if the creature doesn't have very good senses yet it travels rather quickly then there is a high chance it will start running into things. Overall though senses is a good choice just because it gives us and the creature more information about our surroundings, and it's well known that the more information you have about a situation before going into it (and especially during the thick of it) the better off you are.

The second choice, for me at least, was a toss up between improving hunting or improving defenses. I chose hunting because we already have an acceptable level of defense (for now) but our methods for getting ourselves nutrients frankly sucks right now.

Anyways, I like the artwork and the creature seems to be going great right now. Keep up the good work Kenotai!

Well, assuming hunting/feeding is the one that we are doing. Perhaps start the proccess of evolving jaws of some kind? Since they don't have gills, Terran style jaws are out. Maybe develop tentacles of some sort in the way Cyto did?

Also get our 'reproductive tissues' out of the way because we don't want to damage it while feeding.

Improve Feeding/Hunting won.  Also, due to oblivions awesome suggestion, senses have also improved (yes, if you back up your reasons good, I will put it in the update, even if it didn't win)

Generation 23
(http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/7949/sporegamegeneration23.png)

Spuig was finding it difficult to get food into its body cavity.  A small opening was not beneficial, so the pressure was on to change.  A minor flaw in some Spuig caused them to have "lips".  Now, sometimes these would get hurt, and because Spuig cells all act like muscle cells, these could act like short stubby tentacles.  As time went on, Spuig got longer and longer lips, and some even had them split once they grow.  This led to the arise of Spuig's new oral tentacles.  Spuig has four thick tentacles on its back for holding its food, and three short ones in the front to guide it into its mouth.  This could not have been timed better, for a new species has almost replaced the Hair Weed.  It is the Split-Ends, a much thicker and larger variant of its ancestor.  Also, the tentacles caused the surface area of its chemo sense to increase.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Hair Weed, Split-Ends
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 45 cm
Speed: Fast
Senses: Chemical (Average), Touch (Weak), Electromagnetic (Weak)
Brain: 2/10
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none

Post by: Oblivion2007 on April 27, 2009, 07:44:44 pm
Well, for this update I'll advocate either evolving a new sense or improving speed. The sense I way thinking to evolve would be a node in our brain that detects the planet's magnetic field. This would give us good sense of direction, especially if we put more into this. I've seen a lot of games like this, and even some where this evolutions was available and picked as well. I've never seen a spore game where this sense was gotten and also focused on though.

Improving speed is pretty self-explanatory, but also I've been toying with an idea for awhile and in order for it to start working we would need lot's of speed. Specifically we start developing a water-jet like method of propulsion in addition to our wing/fin things.

The idea I had would involve an amphibian-like creature. I say Amphibian-like because while it can survive in water or out it can't live on land very well, no it will be in the air. Early stages would sort of be like a flying fish where we would build up speed underwater to shoot out into the air to attack creatures flying over the surface of the water, then glide for short while if we wanted before re-submerging into the water. From their we would eventually develop into being able to breath both in and out of water and fly around for awhile after leaving the water. This means we could have a creature that spends most of it's time underwater but can feed on the flying creatures that prey on fish that swim near the surface.

Is anyone interested in this at all? If not then that's alright, I'm not specifically attached to it or anything I just thought it might be interesting. One way or another however speed isn't a bad thing.

Well, for this update I'll advocate either evolving a new sense or improving speed. The sense I way thinking to evolve would be a node in our brain that detects the planet's magnetic field. This would give us good sense of direction, especially if we put more into this. I've seen a lot of games like this, and even some where this evolutions was available and picked as well. I've never seen a spore game where this sense was gotten and also focused on though.

Improving speed is pretty self-explanatory, but also I've been toying with an idea for awhile and in order for it to start working we would need lot's of speed. Specifically we start developing a water-jet like method of propulsion in addition to our wing/fin things.

The idea I had would involve an amphibian-like creature. I say Amphibian-like because while it can survive in water or out it can't live on land very well, no it will be in the air. Early stages would sort of be like a flying fish where we would build up speed underwater to shoot out into the air to attack creatures flying over the surface of the water, then glide for short while if we wanted before re-submerging into the water. From their we would eventually develop into being able to breath both in and out of water and fly around for awhile after leaving the water. This means we could have a creature that spends most of it's time underwater but can feed on the flying creatures that prey on fish that swim near the surface.

Is anyone interested in this at all? If not then that's alright, I'm not specifically attached to it or anything I just thought it might be interesting. One way or another however speed isn't a bad thing.
love all of your ideas, finally a man that knows a thing or two about style

Unfortunately the pressures to evolve flight are non-existent.  It is too early for flight to have evolved.


And if the current results hold, DoctorZ will be getting his tentacles.

Post by: Oblivion2007 on April 28, 2009, 12:38:35 pm
I wasn't asking for flight this update. I meant that as a long term goal to try and head towards. This specific update I mentioned trying to get a water-jet type of propulsion added on. Something that takes in water to a sort of primitive water bladder, then we can contract the bladder to increase the water pressure inside before releasing it in a powerful stream behind us. That will give us a short but massive boost in speed.

Also, how would a flying creature work underwater?  If it swims it would need water to breathe, I suppose.  Not sure though.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Oblivion2007 on May 03, 2009, 09:43:11 am
I'm sure we could make a creature that had a respiratory system that would let it either breath in both air and underwater or would allow us to hold our breath in the air. I already posted an idea for such a creature earlier on this topic, though it wasn't a 50/50 air/water creature it was a mostly water creature that could launch out of the water and fly for a short while in order to catch prey in the air or escape underwater predators.

Does it really matter? I mean a lot of stuff done in these sort of games are a bit iffy scientifically. That's because a lot of the cooler things people want to do are things we haven't seen any organisms on Earth do. Personally I don't think a more robust respiratory system is that far out there compared to some things, and so having a flying/swimming creature is entirely possible.

i second that,
i have to agree with that oblivion guy often lately...

oh yea, id suggest we'd upgrade the chemical sense(i suppose its a nose like organ) as this could aid later on when we can fly

Sometimes it's difficult for me to think of evolutions and splits.  So, a la Snaiad, I'm willing to accept ideas and concept arts for evolutions via PM only, and I may incorporate them.  Hopefully this should make my job a bit easier, and make updates come faster.  But keep in mind ideas may not be included at all or may be drastically altered.

Evolve/improve senses won!

Generation 24
(http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/5610/sporegamegeneration24.png)


Sometimes, Spuig had a hard time finding where he was.  The chemo and touch senses would only work when touching the ground, and the electromagnetic sense was very weak.  So, it improved upon it.  Sometimes, either by injury or a mutation, some Spuig had holes in their head plates.  This exposed their "brain" and as such some nerves poked out.  As it happened, this improved their electromagnetic sense.  As this favorable trait was passed down, the nerves became longer, thicker.  It no longer could be used for just orientation, they could control them and touch an object to get information on it.  Spuig was not the only thing to evolve, several species evolved, some new, other from old rivals.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Hair Weed, Split-Ends, Thermo Weed, Hairnet
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 45 cm
Speed: Fast
Senses: Chemical (Average), Touch (Basic), Electromagnetic (Basic)
Brain: 2/10
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none


(http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/8893/sporegamegeneration24cr.png)
*Not to Scale
Plants:

First, we have the reintroduction of the thermal algae, in the form of a symbiosis.  It is descended from the three pronged algae, and it wrapped itself around Split-Ends.  The thermal algae makes oxygen for the Split-Ends, which diffuses into the Split-Ends, while a modified photosynthetic process makes a lot of heat, fueling the thermal algae.  The water prevents it from catching on fire, but where the two touch it is burnt black.

On the other side we have another new plant, the Hairnet.  It is a much larger Split-Ends with the endings having split many times with a round growth encompassing them.  This increases their photosynthesizing area.  As such, the very simple Hair Weed's numbers are very low due to competition.  Spuig can eat the net parts.

Stats for Thermo Weed:
Size: 29 cm
Reproduction: Parts broken off grow into whole plants
Eaten by: Spuig
Current Edibility: Yes

Stats for Hairnet:
Size: 50 cm
Reproduction: Parts broken off grow into whole plants
Eaten by: Spuig
Current Edibility: Yes



Trench Creatures:
The Blood Balloon's descendant is a nasty creature.  Its singular mouth has become three and each has lengthened to an incredible length.  Due to Abyssal Gigantism, this creature is huge!  Spuig is in for a very rough ride with these bad boys around, almost nothing dares to eat them, except the: Spike Vase, Spike Tower, and our next creature.

The Rockpedo was an annoyance before, and its descendant is even more so.  It now has spikes on its inside which expand out once it pierces another creature after one of its characteristic dives.

Stats for Trailing Blood Balloon:
Diet: Rock Ring Worm, Hair Nerves, Nery, Nerve Feeder, Glig, Duig, Spuig
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 70 cm
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Sea Water
Blood: Copper
Ability: none
Current Edibility: No

Stats for Spike Pedo:
Diet: Rock Ring Worm, Hair Nerves, Nery, Nerve Feeder, Glig, Duig, Spuig, Trailing Blood Balloon, Spike Vase, Spike Tower
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 15 cm
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Sea Water
Blood: none
Ability: none
Current Edibility: No

Hair Nerves:
The Hair Nerves have diversified.  While one stayed carnivorous, the other (one on top) began to eat some of the plants.  Its toxin in its hairs is now a weak form of cellulase, which dissolves the plant on contact, making it soupy.  It then will eat the resulting mass.

The other descendant uses its protuberance after it downs a prey with its toxin.  It will repeatedly stab at its prey with the snout part, taking along any bits of flesh that it then sucks up.

Stats for Nery:
Diet: Rock Ring Worm, Spike Tower, Spuig, Glig, Duig
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 6 cm
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Ability: none
Current Edibility: No

Stats for Nerve Feeder:
Diet: Thermo Weed, Hairnet, Split-Ends, Hair Weed
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 6 cm
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Ability: none
Current Edibility: No

(http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/5656/sporegamegeneration24crj.png)

Spuig also diversified.  There is a burrowing descendant, which looks like a horseshoe crab.  There is also a flying descendant, which looks unlike anything on Earth.

Stats for Glig:
Diet: Hair Weed, Split-Ends, Thermo Weed, Hairnet
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Size: 35 cm
Speed: Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none

Stats for Duig:
Diet: Hair Weed, Split-Ends, Thermo Weed, Hairnet
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Size: 35 cm
Speed: Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none

Two letters: N and O.

Also logically, by now, plants would have ventured onto to land and that bring plenty of herbivores and carnivores.  And we won't do well there, unless we keep going for defenses and speed until it's good.

Either way, I really want an underwater utopian civilization.

Yeah, it's bad that it stuck, but it stuck, so we pretty much call saganmaineiac sagan, and when we mention the ACTUAL sagan (Not carl sagan, the project) we say sagan 4

An update will happen when I become "in the mood".  Right now a disaster is about to happen on Sagan 4, and I'm currently drawing things from my lineages that I want to be saved.  Also, if you want an update faster, do like what Badger did and pm me any suggestions you have, no matter how erroneous.

Gain Intelligence Won!

Generation 25
(http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/8294/sporegamegeneration25co.png)

Spuig's brain, underneath the main armor plating, has grown in size.  In addition, two of the sensory nerves have thickened to form large brain extensions.  This not only increased Spuig's intelligence, but his electromagnetic and touch senses have been improved as well.  As a part of its new found intelligence, it now has the ability to recognize things it has touched before, sowing the seeds for future abilities, because this is the beginning of its ability to remember past events.

Three new species of plants have evolved, there is the Lumpp, which photosynthesizes, as well as feed off of soil nutrients and dead matter, almost like a truffle.  It is a migrant species, coming from the lagoon, and it reproduces by budding.  Spuig cannot eat it due to the smooth surface.  Next is a descendant of the Hairnet, the Shoo.  It's nets have been filled in, and they have been turned to the sun.  It was more successful, so there are no more Hairnets.  Spuig can eat this species.  Next is the Thick, which out competed the Split-Ends.

Two new animals species are also present.  There is a descendant of the Rock Ring Worm.  Unlike its ancestor, which stopped being able to eat Spuig at around generation 21, has finally evolved into a different enough form, and size, to be a threat to Spuig.  It is called the Vuum, for its vacuum like appearance.  Indeed, that is how it feeds, by latching on, and sucking on them until a bit of flesh comes off, or suck them in entirely, in the case of smaller animals.  The other animal is the Krisk, a descendant of the Spike Tower.  It has a much more powerful spike launching, enough to break through any armor, or pierce through Spuig's brain.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Thick, Thermo Weed, Shoo
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 45 cm
Speed: Fast
Senses: Chemical (Average), Touch (Average), Electromagnetic (Average)

Reproduction: Parts broken off grow into whole plants
Eaten by: Spuig, Nerve Feeder
Current Edibility: Yes

Stats for Thick:

Reproduction:  Parts broken off grow into whole plants
Eaten by: Spuig, Nerve Feeder
Current Edibility: Yes


Stats for Vuum:
Diet: Spuig, Krisk, Nerve Feeder, Nery
Reproduction:
Size: 60
Speed: Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from bubbles
Blood: None
Ability: None
Current Edibility: No

Stats for Krisk:
Diet: Vuum, Spuig, Nerve Feeder, Nery

I think we should improve our feeding so we can eat the lumpp. I think maybe primitive claws formed from the shell could grow on two or three tentacles. And grow larger. We must be scariest and eat all.

Suggestions for evolution: Spuigs tentacles grow larger and more agile, this makes it possible for spuig to grab things. Because of the heightened food income it grows in size...

the vuum could then become a symbiont to spuig, feeding of smaller spuigdwellers

We really need something to let us prey on things besides plants.

We seem to have everything else needed to hunt:

We are rather fast, so we can catch our prey easily.
We have great senses(at least compared to most organisms) so we can find prey.
Our defenses should be capable of protecting us if our prey fights back.

The only things we don't have are a means to kill and digest any significant prey. What we really need right now is some sort of horn above our mouths that we can ram things with, taking advantage of our speed. Ultimately teeth and some sort of jaw are needed, but that will probably take another update or two to get at a decent enough level. All that needs to be done for a horn is have some Spiugs armor have mutated to form a spike on the front, generations later those with longer and sharper spikes would be more successful and BAM, you have a horn.

Well, yours isn't exactly bursting with contents either...

Also, jaws are boring.

Anyway, I fail to see why a jaw has to be boring. I mean, after all a jaw is merely "any opposable articulated structure at the entrance of the mouth, typically used for grasping and manipulating food." (Source: Wikipedia. :P)

So you could do almost ANYTHING, I mean think of radial mouthes, double-mouthes (xenomorphs) etc. I actually think that non-jaw mouthes are more boring, because there is only so much variation to them. (Fly-like suckers and probosci are the only things that come to my mind. Not to mention, that these become kinda useless with increasing size. >_>)

He deliberately mentioned sagan to try and convince people that they aren't the same person, but that only makes it glaringly obvious that he is sagan.

I can report you for this.
I am 11 years old. You are, what? 14? 15? 16? 17?
I first saw this site BEFORE sagan got kicked off.
HE GOT BANNED!
I hate his profile picture.
I think he's stupid.
I think he's lame.
You DO know that GUESTS can read forum posts, right? I first heard that sagan was gonna be banned by putpooza
Do you know IP adress? NO! Do you know mine? NO! Therefore, there is absolutly no proof I could even have been HACKED by sagan.
So go try and get some other new member banned by saying "oh he's saganmanic's alt! Ban him!"
If I ask a mod, they can track saganmanic's IP address. Then mine. And they WILL be diferent unless he snuck in my house and used my laptop.
SO THERE! NOW QUIT FLAMING ME JUST BECAUSE I'M A NEW MEMBER AND JOINED AFTER SAGANMANIC GOT BANNED!

You're arguments might not quite be as convincing as you'd think. Even if you were telling the truth (And I'm not saying I think you're sagan, cause I'd prefer to stay neutral) , you'll still be accused. We recently had an alt of an old troll on, so people still might be a bit paranoid.

I never said I think you are sagan, I said I hope you aren't sagan, because there were certain people who were under that impression.
Fine you aren't sagan, but first I want you to explain why in the world did you, out of nowhere, start saying "I'm not sagan I hate him"

putpooza, let me clarify: I read somebody posting that to flame sagan, beofre I joined this forum website, AND before sgan left, apparently.
He got banned, didn't he? serves that spammer right! with his stupid "pangolin" this, and "pangolin" that.
edit: oh crap, i just realized that was Crazen. And Crazen isn't THAT bad.

 I just noticed this. what the hell?

I mentioned the pangolin thing once or twice in the spore: the game thing. thats a bit overstated

 and it wasnt my stupid pangolin thing. it was actualy malt's stupid "disscusion over!", thing that I posted over and over again, stupidly. that is all. I realy dont care for these evolution games anymore.

Generation 26
(http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/5762/sporegamegeneration26co.png)
Many years had passed.  The Lumpp were very invasive, and Spuig was unable to take advantage of this huge food source.  But, some of the smarter ones rubbed their shells to some effect.  This stimulated growth on their undersides, and those with greater growth was able to feed on these better.  Their tentacles on the bottom part now are covered with shell.  Another thing to grow is the Llong, a descendant of the Thick.  They grow much taller, and have almost leaf like growths were the branches of the Thick were.  They are eaten by a new Nerve Feeder descendant, the Nerve Rasper.  They have three hard protrusions on the top and bottom, which can and do act  like primitive jaws, where they can grab and take off pieces of Llong.

Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Thick, Thermo Weed, Shoo, Lumpp, Llong
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 50 cm
Speed: Fast
Senses: Chemical (Average), Touch (Average), Electromagnetic (Average)
Brain: 3/10
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none



Stats for Llong:
Size: 80 cm
Reproduction: Parts broken off grow into whole plants
Eaten by: Spuig, Nerve Rasper
Current Edibility: Yes


Stats for Nerve Rasper:
Diet: Llong
Reproduction: Spawning, Asexual
Size: 20
Speed: Extremely Fast
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: None
Ability: None
Current Edibility: No


Definitely going to update more often.  This style is so much easier.

It's just that people here don't consider this section as related to Spore anymore, ever since the game deviated from it's original mechanics and the forum itself became more diverse and detailed than the game will ever be.

It finally happened, that a smoking type creature has finally made its way to the beach.  This was very swell for Spuig.  However, instead of simply swimming through them, it will wrap its tentacles around it and breath from it, like a bong, earning it the name Iron Bong.  There is also a Trailing Blood Balloon descendant.  One of the tentacles has gone away, and the other two specialized for piercing, and one for cutting.  It is rather large as well, but Spuig's armor gives it protection, but certainly not all the way.

I am making a wiki for my own reference, as well as anyone else who doesn't care to dig through pages of the thread.  Help is nice.  It is private, so you will need to join first.

I'd like to do an update soon, but I'd like a few more votes, since the result can change with just a couple more.

Kenotai, this is awesome.  Thank you for continuing.  I think you have enough votes, though.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on July 28, 2010, 08:53:05 am
I try to update at 25, unless the few extra wouldn't change the winner.  However, in this case it can.  However, if someone votes for one that isn't at 5, I will update then.

I think you've got about all the people who are going to vote already, but you're the author.

Okay, two things.

1.  PLEASE, please, please help with the wikispaces page I set up.  It will make updating so much easier since I'll have an easy reference.  You will have to join, but it's real simple.  Here's the link again: http://journeyofacell.wikispaces.com/

2.  Since senses are going to win, what should we evolve or improve?  Only one.

Evolve the ability to hear soundwaves.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Gnoll on July 28, 2010, 01:23:39 pm
Evolve EYES!!!
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Rysworld on July 28, 2010, 03:30:40 pm
Must we evolve things similar to what we have on earth?

I say evolve echolocation, or tactile sense, if the people insist on something from earth.

Rys, can you not read?  I said ONE, not any "or" statements.

Eyes are the most common organ in multicelluar life; they evolved seperatlt like five times over.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story

This is not our life.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Lush City on July 28, 2010, 08:56:04 pm
I'm saying that if we had anything in common with aliens, it would be eyes.

Fine.

We can see ultraviolet, or at least part of that. Maybe part ultraviolet spectrum and part visible?
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Yuu on July 29, 2010, 01:48:41 am
How about everything between green and ultraviolet? That gives us a somewhat familiar color range to work with.
Title: Re: The Journey of a Cell - A Spore Story
Post by: Kenotai on July 29, 2010, 07:30:12 am
Um, so that's evolve sense (vision) then?

Okay, a third point I forgot to mention earlier is to send me PMs for suggestions on any new, non-Spuig creatures and plants.

The sense isn't vision
Its X-ray vision
