Ondaderthad's Oddities (Minor SPOILERS)
« on: August 28, 2008, 09:36:25 pm »
Since most forum members have a thread to post their creatures I thought I might as well start one too.
I am not looking for votes/ratings.
Most of those creatures were created as experiments or as Demo for other family members or visitors.

In no particular order.... apart from my photobucket pages.

I think I have about 109 shared at the moment.
See them all:

Most of them were just for fun with the CC until I know more about the Sporecasts and the full game.

After having tried a couple of games on both Hard and Easy settings now is the time to try Normal.
I didn't remember to take screen shots on those early trials.
All I remember in the middle of the excitement of finally having Spore in my hands is that I first wanted to test the Hard setting to see how difficult it would be.
.. not for noobies.. I played the Onda Complexus up to the start of Tribal stage.
I managed to finish the cell stage as an omnivore. Tricky to balance the diet.
In creature stage I found quite a lot of Parkaboy's creatures as Epics. Scary.. and deadly.

Next game was the opposite. I started a carnivore on Easy mode. No problems. Just kill and eat.
That was Onda Simplex and they look like T-rex of course.

Now for my third run I wanted something different. And Parkaboy reminded me to take pictures and make a story.
So...

Here is the Story of the Onda Vulgaris.

Planet Landfall:


As a cell I sacrificed vision for speed. sell the eyes and get extra flagellas. Note the field of vision is reduced to a circle.
But that's not as bad as it may look. When other cells kill each others and drop a new part this part is visible in a small circle even on the edge of the screen. Much easier to notice than playing with eyes.



After a short 10 million years we emarged out of the primordial soup.
When you don't have eyes you want to keep a low profile.



Around the nest there was a few basic Maxis animals. Low DNA stuff.



And also..



As a herbivore we gained the Siren Song Ability. Nice FX even in black and white.



Here is a handy little screen that shows your collection of stuff.



After a while the others decided to leave and migrate to a new nest. I had to walk alone along the trail to find it.
NOTE the video sequences are in full colours unlike the play area.



The creatures around the new nest are a lot tougher. I did find a few creatures from LadyM and Parkaboy but they were too hostile to approach.
Then I tried to Impress the Equpsitta (hydromancerx) but I didn't have much success.



No luck with the Armstrongs (hydromancerx) either.



Now it's lunch time. I noticed a fruit just rolled down the hill from those trees.
Gravity works as it should. (also some huge logs on the beach can be pushed around and into the water)



Oh yes... I found the Galactic Center and marked it on my map. I had 6 planets to chose from at the start. After using 3 of them there are still 6 available. This means that each time you start a game a new planet is opened up.



Here is part of the Maxis collection of plants and trees. Note the button at the top to select small medium or large.
But only 163 Flora on disc so I guess the expension is not too far away.
Also the Buddy list on the left. On the printed manual it also shows the Sporecast list under that.
Guess it will be activated soon.
The Download of Buddies creature is automatic (after selecting their names) and live. ie. if some saves and shares a creature it becomes instantly available in my game. You can also add or delete single creatures.



And here is the screen of my Achievements so far. A list of those also appear when you look at any member's Sporepedia page along with small thumbnails and comments.



For a full view of these creatures in Sporepedia see:

Loved the screenshots! I'm really curious about other people's adventures, hope more GSers post theirs in the forum.

Since you already have the game, there's one doubt that's consuming me right now, and I wish you helped me. In civ stage, can we choose the pattern/color of the "ground" of your city? And how about the walls design? It's just that in many screenshots I've seen the designs don't match very well with the buildings...

Thanks for adding me to your sporecast list as well :)

It's more like 6 days until I get the game because of the preorder shipping delay. Spore should be shipping to the US soon though.

@ WeatherMAN23

I don't mean to boast. I spend more time on the forum than playing  :-\  because I know too well how it feels.
I remember when Neverwinter Nights was released one month later in Australai (I had been following these forum for at least 2 years before)
These pix and stories are mostly to help you (and myself) understand the game better.
You will find it was well worth the long wait.

@ Parkaboy

You are welcome to take those pix for your Blog. (copy the photobucket link)

re: Cities
I'll take a screenshot later.

I know that you can add a lots of dodads between the buildings. Trees, statues, fountains etc.. They cost very little and do-nothing. Just visuals.

In the city planner there is a whole screen of those small add-ons and a number of empty spots on the ground. But I don't think you can change the walls. But I could have missed that.

Also the Music is saved in your Sporepedia as well as in your "My Documents" folder.
There is also a Plants subfolder in My Documents. Indicating they will release a plant editor to add to those 153 existing Maxis trees.
There might be a problem with the Space missions asking you to collect specific plants. They would need to add a provision for user created plants.

Oh it's fine, just a little ribbing that you have it and I am sitting here, looking at a torrent for the game and am trying my best to control my urge to download it and then buy it on Sunday morning... I am glad you enjoy the game and (if I can withstand temptation) I will play it Sunday morn!
