Only because they are my favorite animals, I'm going to try and recreate the raccoon in spore, and make tribal and city buildings look like trees, dens and other natural looking settings. Maybe make the tribal 'spears' thieves canes like from the Sly Cooper games.

As for a UFO... not sure on that one. Any suggestions?

I'm winging it. Anyone else?

ditto.
I feel that I'll be much more inspired with all these tools in front of me than I would be right now if I tried extrapolating what I could make in the editors.

I was planning to borrow from a game I'm quite fond of. My first race will be space monkies from the Space Quest series. (See profile pic)
As for archetecture, I'll likely just borrow whimsical buildings from the series, maybe mix in some coral buildings.

I'm gonna play with the creature editor, see what CAN be made with it and what can't be made with it.

Well I have a lot of creatures i already made on the forums i would like to see if i could recreate in spore. I would also like to see if i could replicate my Naucean empire in as much detail as I could.

I also would like to share what I made as I go with people on the forum and stuff since i know other will be doing it too. Not to mention I will be wanting to go collecting other peoples stuff. Especially marking people I know here who have made some amazing stuff.

I also was thinking it would be cool to have the Sagan 4 team actually be recreating their own species for spore so we could play with them in game. I so want to see a plent or sauceback. :D

Sure there would be other creatures i would want to see like Future is Wild, After Man, Wayne Barlowe Stuff, etc but I would expect those to be already made by other people so i would not have to make it my self and just look it up to download.

Unfortunately for space empires, so far it seems that we will only be able to have only one ufo.  Does anyone know if we'll be able to have more than one spaceship?  That would be awsome to have space battles over planets.

Do we know that for certain yet? I remember Will talking in one of the interviews (can't remember which one, might have been the gamevideos video pt 2) about how the space phase ended up a lot more complex than they originally forsaw, which was one of the reasons they opened up the different phases of the game. Didn't want people to have to play games they didn't like.

A Flying Trashcan maybe?

Or a large fishbone like structure.

Personally, I'm inclined to go with a purely utilitarian approach to my Spore creations. Whatever is the most efficient is what I'm probably going to go with. Aesthetics are important, too, of course.

My first time through I am going to be recreating the Zerg, with my main building being a Lair and the surrounding building being Spawning Pool, Hydralisk Lair, Ultralisk Lair, Defiler Mound, and a Nydus Channel. Once I get far enough intot he space stage with this creature I plan on taking a planet and making it all water except for a ring that will go around the planet and fill it with Convenant and Humans with the vehicles as well for ****s and giggles, but after I had enough fun with that I plan on going through the game again with my own design for a creatuer but I don't knwo yet what that will look like.
