Thanks :-)

<EDIT>
Just started reading it,and it looks brilliant!
Especially for someone like me whose 'current' computer can't run the demo  >:(
Should be able to get a new one around early September though  ;)

theres some good information about the game in there, it mentions flying and how you will need good jumping ability to make good use of your ability to glide.

Very interesting that the first page has a beautiful picture with creatures on it and one has a Fur like substance on it! Uh, where IS that at in the creature creator?
I guess I'll have to keep reading it.

Thanks for posting this by the way!

I was just going to comment on that. I wonder if that will be an advanced texture you can add in real spore.

Good question Hydro! I thought the full creature creator was supposed to have everything though, I guess I could be wrong.

In some of the recent videos there are actually 5 pages of the base and detail textures instead of 3... I wonder where they went :\

Really? Do you remember what videos that was in? Maybe they left some out to have stuff for the full game.

On Page 25 ..

I have been thinking for some time that most of the creatures made so far won't be usable in the full game because of complexity. (although they look cool)

Note that in the current editor the Health is set at Level 40 and is what you would expect towards the end of the Creature stage while fully evolved. But you will need to get there first.

I believe they usually make these Prima guides from early builds and therefore they don't match up exactly with the final builds.

actually, for some references in the text and the lowest icons, looks like a chapter of the full guide of Spore :D

Check out the parts on Space Ranger Vonclumpy (page 26). I'm assuming those are clothing and not robotic parts, but they still look cool.

If some of the older discoveries still stand, they're 'cyber bits' that you can add on somewhere around the space stage, much in the same way you add 'clothing bits' in tribal/civ.
