To tell you the truth, I've only seen one creature, EVER, that sucked.

Was it Not-The-Momma?

Seriously though, what creature was that? Do you remember the video/screenshot?

I seriously can't wait to get my hands on the CC and Spore. 26 more days until the CC is out.. Soooo long... -_-

I actually agree with you. The only creature i seen that sucked was one where the guy made a long rod under its legs and proceeded to do a childish giggle. Yes the creature that had a penis.

I don't think any other creature has sucked ever. Its all a matter of individual opinion and perspective.

I was not implying that we both disliked the same creature TTT. I actually kinda like that one (its the first time i ever seen it.)

Am I the only one here who wanted to fix the bad placement of the limbs as I was watching the video?  :D Seriously, at first it was an extremely ugly creature, but as he got more familiar with it, it looked awesome.

That was actually a pretty long demo...

It's pretty sweet seeing what a completely uninitiated person can do with the editor. He also seems to be the kind of guy who figures games out pretty quick too, which earns my respect.

It was cool seeing what he came up with as a complete newbie. Imagine what people will be able to come up with after some experience with it. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

he's very informative "you can move stuff around very easily, *mouses over something and the guide circles appear* apparently there are these little guides to help you out. *goes into test mode* he has no eyes. He has a mouth, look at him. And I don't know how he's standing up." yup, we definitely couldn't see that he has no eyes. How helpful for us to know that you don't know how he's standing up.  He had to inform us of things as he's figuring them out.

It does show that Maxis succeeded in making an editor so easy to use that anyone can use it, even if you have no idea what your doing.

my fear is that the creatures we create are generally going to be the same
x amount of legs
x amount of arms
x amount of eyes

so far all of the creatures i've seen are pretty bland imo
too many bipeds
maybe we'll see something truely unique once the cc comes out
I have my doubts tho

Also, when he was talking about it defying physics, if he wanted it to be a bit more "realistic" he could just bulk up the legs a bit and add a tail.
