Jesus Mech! ... and other abominations.
« on: April 05, 2008, 12:44:44 am »


For those of you who thought battlfish was cool, i bring you JESUS MECH! (upper left corner)

On a serious note what kind of vehicle abominations do you think the community will make? It has been discussed what kind of creatures people will make from the annoying pokemon or penis creature but what havoc will the vehicle editors have?

For instance would having a UFO of a giant Jewish dradle driven by lobster-pigs be offensive or funny? Or if you had a Mohammad-mobile shaped in the likeness of the profit Mohammad would fanatical Islamic groups threaten to bombing EA/Maxis because of it?

I could see spore content not only become sexually offensive but offensive to religions, races or any other group that takes offense from these things. This seems like it could be worse than copyright infringement. What will EA do to cover its butt on the matter?

Well, being a huge mecha fan i'd probably create things out of the mechwarrior universe, and even the Command and conquer universe. A tank pic that was posted a while back, the one with the 6 barrels, gave me an idea for something similar to the C&C3 juggernaught. i.e. an artillery battery with legs although the abomination that i'd really love to make...... i'm sure if there are any other MW fans on the board, they too, would make a madcat mk2

The things i'd make in order of preference though:
Madcat


Cant remember name, from macross saga


Juggernaught (old concept art, not c&c3)
Sitting quietly waiting for spore's release....... for 2 years and counting T_T.

I don't think EA will do much about it.

Why would they? The more commotion Spore makes the higher the hit rates and sales will be.
Even bad publicity is publicity.

But honestly this is 1 side of the Spore picture i never took time to notice.
Nice one!

From all crazy scenario's i didn't think of the fanatics taking offense over a religious ''blasphemes'' vehicle/sporean. But it does prove we can make Battlemech's ....thats gooood news. Remember the old screenies, with that one 4 legged vehicle....they really improved the pieces i think.

That second pic is a Konic Monster. It transforms into a space shuttle and fires ICBMs.


Hehehe... I've got an idea! Let's build mechs that look like they're made of spare parts! The "Recycled", they shall be called.


For me, I'd build a maximized version of my creature.


EDIT:

New idea! We should make giant robots and name our cities Tokyo! Epic robot-monster fights FTW! ;D

Metal Gear???

If my creature goes to war against a civilization that has those, I'll just create a snake creature to defend myself. Snakes seem to be superior to Metal Gears.

Slightly off topic, but the one labeled "my SPACE W..." is actually purty cool. With a name like that, who would've thought? :P
