Lippy: since when has the moon become a planet ? LOL

I think the amount of life in spore is a bit too high.

I think a 25 to 50% chance of life in a solar system would be better.

Well just lower the percentage of life a bit that would not hurt.

I totally agree. I want to be able to find many planets without life!

Yeah, finding life on every planet would take away the point of terraforming and crafting your own there for making life.

That's been my mission when I get the game, craft a dead lifeless planet into a bountiful beautiful world of your own.

Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Yup.

Even better idea: Some areas are very populated and some are completely deserted!

Only things that would exist in those areas are nebular clouds, proto-stars and young planets waiting to be terraformed :D.

I'm kind of looking forward to finding other intelligent life.

One idea makes me think of a book I read a couple years back. (Learning the World, by Ken MacLeod.) A colony ship arrives in a new system only to find the one already habitable planet in the system is already occupied by a more primitive species. So they start to colonize the rest of the system around that planet, not thinking that the aliens might think of those planets as theirs despite being unable to reach them yet.

Anyway, I plan to redo that part of the scenario in Spore, just to see what happens when the local life gets a UFO.

I knew someone was going to nitpick that.   :D  I was just commenting that if there are still moons in the game and they are habitable, they would probably be counted in the "up to 5" planet number.  Like goober said, she was probably just speaking generally.

For once you have a point. Unfortunately you wrote "LOL" after it, all in capitals.

This nullifies all positive points you could have taken for actually saying something that was correct.

Yeah, finding life on every planet would take away the point of terraforming and crafting your own there for making life.

I'm pretty certain there will be more than enough dead planets.

See it this way: it is better to have too many than too little. It would be pretty weak if there were only 500 stars, for example. So with 500k stars you can expand or just be satisfied with what you have reached.

It basically allows the people with no friends to play forever without running out of stars.

Wright said in an article some time ago that if one were to play for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take more than 70-odd years to view everything that -ships- in Spore.  Not counting custom content.

2 million planets over 70 years leaves 28571 planets to explore per year, that makes 78 planets a day, 3 planets an hour which makes it 1 planet every 20 minutes.

I think this just shows that the gameplay of Spore in space will become repetive. If they are going to offer that much to explore you will probaly have everything in just under 250 planets.

Nobody is gonna be looking for a new planet every 20 minutes though, people usually find one they like and do something with it, when it pleases them they move on.
