Gender is an evolutionary option on Earth. It happened here, but doesn't necessarily have to happen enywhere else. There are still creatures on Earth that have no gender, such as the snail. Any two snails can mate. (Technically they are hermaphrodites, being both sexes at once). Some creatures just divide in two. Others bud. Go figure.

Eh might wanna fix number 2 my friend.

Split limbs are actually 100% confirmed with video proof.
I have clarified #2 in my sig. Prepare for a big "I told you so" on June 17th. Either that or me admitting I was wrong. Should be a fun day.

My predictions for Spore.

1) No water creatures at initial release. I was right about this even when the fanboys were denying it.
2) No composite limbs at initial release. eg. Buttface; attaching a limb to a limb to... Update: Prediction was incorrect. Buttface is in!
3) Spore will outsell the Sims and be the best selling game of all time until something better comes along.

We've seen screenshots of limbs with 5 segments and I haven't seen any of those in the list so it must 2 limbs together, just add another one and then split them.

hmm? wasnt there that one creature that looked a bit like a stretched pumpkin, and they put a limb on his head, and then they pick the last joint and it suddenly has a junkction.

Yes, but the limb was in the center of the creature, that's why it split. We don't know if we can split them when they are on the sides or if we can put limbs on other limbs, although the evidence we have so far points towards a yes.

Unfixed, reasons:

1. Screenshot with a creature that has a limb with 5 segments (none of the standart limbs do).
2. Recent in-game screenshot of a creature with split legs (like buttface).
3. Very Recent video of a limb being split into 2 half-way accross it.

Hope that clears it up.

I'd imagine that once CC is out and/or the full game is out, there will be mods like editing the ini to increase the number of vertabre, add custom parts, etc.

I hadn't given much thought to modding.....

Cybernetic implant creature parts mod? Yes please!
If you peruse my things, you get POINTS!

Only trouble is, they're Whose Line Is It Anyway points, which are infamously not worth anything.

It's been mentioned before, but modding won't work if you want to share what you make. The sporepedia checks the validity of shared creations, and rejects them if they are "tweaked".

According to this image, the higher your brain level, the more access you have to limbs with more joints:



i'm a fan of the GDC 2005 Spore video on Google Videos...

How is the size of the creature controlled?  Is it relative to the size of the creature blob in the editor or is there some type of slider or selector?
