I'm with legion on this one. This whole JC = jerk, JC says "I don't care" is getting really really old.

About the size of the creature files I'm almost positive I heard mention of 8KB... was it in that interview by Gaming Steve with Caryl Shaw (I think it was her?).
There's going to be loads on launch, no doubt, but I really hope for the stuff they put on the disc, that they're going to be very picky about it and examine it - not just load everything with a good rating from the pedia.
I'd like to be really optimistic and say they'd achieved their goal as well but to frank, no I don't think all the creatures I've seen so far are great. In fact a fair amount of the ones not created by the spore team have been specifically a bit crap - in MY oppinion. Not all of them, but some of them I would definately NOT want in my game.

Didn't read the whole 4 pages but :

Quote
Given all the user-generated content coming even before the full game comes out I asked Hutchinson if Maxis was going to create any creatures to ship the game with. He said they would create a “few thousand” to ship with, for people who want to play the game offline, without a connection to the game’s content-rich servers. But a few thousand is a small drop. He said they are expecting “millions” of creatures to be created and available by users on day one of the game’s launch.

I read it all and advise everyone else to as well.  Nothing really new but it did mention an 'Epic' beasty.

Oh, I meant I didn't read this thread from the beggining. These articles I read.

No Demo Creatures ?

BUT.... I wanna see Robin William's creature in the game, it was so awesome.

Any creature that can do coke from a mile away HAS to be cool.

That, an' gotta see how long it lasts before it gets eaten.

I should think there'd be several million by September.

At least I tried to be on topic xD.

Perhaps, if we take a survey about how many creatures each of us expect to make before release we could get a rough estimate?

Oh, I'm sorry.  I think you're missing the fact that I could care less what you think.  There has to be at least one negative voice around here.  I'm sorry for the fact that reading negativity puts a dent in your day.  There needs to be someone to bring you Spore spankers back down to earth that is over-hype.

Wake up Jake, this is the world we live in, what you're doing is the equivalent of walking into a crowd of black people with guns and screaming "white power", you're just asking to get killed.

Don't even bother with him, this is the same guy who said he'd pirate the CC, so he's a Hypocrite at best.

P. S. And yes, several million by Sept.

Please stay on topic and don't make personal attacks on each other.

All off topic chatter removed.

If you don't like what someone says... ignore them! If they say something against the rules... report them! but don't respond to them there by throwing more logs in the fire.

Thank you! :)

On topic:  I will be giddy as all get out if there are a million + creatures at launch!!  That would be amazing, there would be a selection beyond any game in the market already. (Content selection that is)

I doubt it will get that high though.

Well, I'm going to end up making more than 10 by the end of the week!

If we take 20 per pre-order atm it's 1mill aready. Add the people who are going to get it on the day. Several million creatures will be then within weeks!

I'm not saying they all be high quality though.

As soon as I delete all of the 750,000 creatures that will look the same..........

I highly doubt it will be that bad...but to avoid the thread again derailing:

I will be extremely excited if it breaks 1 million at launch.

Since I'm not likely to se more than a few thousands ever playing that game, I will be happy if it just breaks 100k by launch time ;)

Really?  You don't think you will visit a thousand worlds?

1000 worlds x 10 critters each = 10,0000

...and there could easily be over 10 creatures on a world.

Considering there are 6 tribes (I think?) and if each tribe is a different species you still need to have enough species that don't evolve sapience so I'd say around 15 per planet.
