not sure if this has been mentioned before, but Sporepedia already has more creatures than the Sims 2 exchange has people, lots, pets

 :D

Although EA does clear house on the exchange every few months and deletes most of the inactive stuff.  Even then I'm sure Spore will surpass it quickly.  Depending on the amount of detail and care it's possible to pump out a creature every 10 minutes to an hour.  Sims always took me much longer.  As well, we have no game to play right now so the only thing we have to do is pump out creatures.

We'll break 1,000,000 within a week. Within another week we'll break 2,000,000. It'll take 2 more weeks to reach 3,000,000, and probably nearly a month after that before we break 4,000,000. My reasoning for this is that there's currently a massive influx in popularity for it - this will soon die down, and there'll be mainly only the hardcore fans left. This is also good, because it means better quality creatures will be pumped out by them.

Consider this - there will be more than 500,000 stars in the game, if I remember correctly. Around most of the stars there will probably be AT LEAST one planet with life on it. On that one planet there will be AT LEAST 10 different species. We need to start cranking out more creatures.

It'll be 3/4 million by tomorrow.  Or do you mean 3-4 million?  Which is -1 million.  Or do you mean between 3,000,000 and 4,000,000?

Hee!

There will be no problem populating any planet, even if there are 5 million planets, since they get the creatures when you visit the planet.  It would take FOREVER to populate every single planet in the galaxy at the start of the game.

If in every game there are 2,000,000 planets with an average of 12 creatures each, and the game needs enough creatures so that 3 people can play completely unique games without any of the same creatures, so that it stays varied that means we'll need 7,200,000 creatures on the sporepedia, considering the current number of creatures and the fact that the game has been out two days we can assume a rate of 300,000 creatures a day so far, if we continue this for another week that makes 2,700,000 creatures total. Then if we go at half that rate for 2 weeks extra that makes 4,800,000 total if for the rest of the time up to the rerlease, and assuming a 1 week period for most gamers to reach the space stage, that makes a total of 11,600,000 creatures by the time we need 7,200,000, which should maintain a much lower growth rate of demand, than content uploads. And we can also assume that 1/4 of the content on the sporepedia is undesirable, and this still leves plenty of creatures.

This shows we'll have probably enough creatures through a plausable model, the other content will always meet it's demand due to the fact that only the amount of sentient races already created by players will apear in your galaxy, and they will already have their own content.

Also something wich many people haven't taken into account, it will take you roughly 64 years to explore the whole galaxy, so therefore what is on the sporepedia now would probably tide you over for several years.

(I'm sorry if some of this is outdated by other posts in the thread, or if some of it doesn't make sense, i started typing half an hour ago and i'm tierd)

The part to look forward to, is to see how many times your creature populated another person's planet, how many times it went extinct, how many times it became sentient, etc.

Once people are able to fond earth, they will put up an FAQ, and then everyone will be able to find it.

They should have a contest, to see who the first person to find Earth is.
