I would like to know if we get told when one of our creature gets used in someone else world.

Anyway... Today we are still exploring around the nest. Found a Spice vent (they exist in creature stage and are at the same spot later in Civ)
But Geez it's a lot of wind coming out of there.



Some fruit is too high in trees and you have to jump.



I eventually died of hunger because it's so hard to find food when you are blind.
Time to Evolve some eyes and Legs.
NOTE: the migration track in the minimap. This is the second nest out of three.



Glorious Sight!
Now I can see the enemies. Here are the Bullsquids (WeatherMAN23) and Ookguh (Maxis)
The brown-green spots things are not creatures just some tree trunks.



We (I have a mate following me) found a nest of Trumpet-Peibis (Parkaboy)



Lets see if we can Impress them.
NOTE: I had the cursor on a Baby (less DNA) and each nest also has an Alpha creature with more DNA than the normal ones.
NOTE 2: Notice the nice trees in the background.

You might be able to see all the pictures in the slideshow (if it works)

Cool, the Trumpet-Peibi is one of my earliest creations. I was going for a less powerful creature at the time, I hope it didn't give you trouble.

Edit: That screenshot is on the Blog. Later I'll add links for the creatures! The link for the blog is in my sig.

This session we first went to see an Omic (Hydromancerx) nest.



When the fruit stay on the ground for too long they go rotten and are inedible.




Found some Canabiena (Parkaboy) on a hill side. 40 DNA reward for Impressing them.



Gliosan Gladiators (Parkaboy) Permanently Hostile and nasty. We will have to come back later with some heavy weaponry. (monster fodders)



I was trying to breed in the nest but some unwelcome visitors arrived.
Bullsquids (WeatherMAN23) are permanently Hostile.



I was admiring the Night Sky wondering how many stars there are. And you can see them slowly moving around.



OOOPS... this star is moving a lot faster than the others.



That was a really big meteor. All the creatures around are frightened.



A whole shower of them.




Next morning we go swimming.
But I learned to stay close enough to the edge.
There are some huge sea monsters in the deep.
Note the red water on my planet.



I met a Rogue Gark and managed to impress it. Although not as large as an Epic the rogues are still worth 250 DNAs



A Stinger Antoid's nest. Note the Spice Vent in the background.



Oh! Look! It's raining now...



Time to Impress a rogue Troglor for another helpful ally.



All the Wutans creatures scatter away in fear. What's happening?



It's an unknown UFO abducting the Wutans.



Just some time left to visit another creature nest. The Magpings.




And a look at the Moon Rise. Quite fast moving.
It probably takes a minute to cross the screen.



Next session we evolve to Tribal stage.


 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Can you later remove buddies?  I would be surprised if you couldn't.  Could you add me for a couple of minutes and tell me if you see any of mine?

it's probably going to take more than a few minutes for that to happen because there are so many other creatures.

How come that screen a couple posts back only show 117 of my creatures bieng under me on the buddy list? is that just what had been loaded up at that moment? just wondering.

I meant for one generation, if applicable.  I doubt anyone would want mine because some of them were done by my brother before I made an account for him.  I just would like to see when my various creations would show up.

You can add and remove buddies from one click.

And also see a special user page for each buddy showing their game Badges. (none yet 'cause you didn't play yet)

@smjjames
It shows only the number that was downloaded at the time. Since I added 4 or 5 buddies at the same time it slowly downloads each creature (and buildings, ufo etc.. if you have them saved)
I took the screenshot while it was still updating.
By the way, this all happens in the background so you can play while it's updating.

One feature I found in Options that will be good is that you can choose the date span of the buddies downloads .ie date of creation from 1 to 60 days old.
And also purge old creatures if unused for longer than 1 to 60 days. They are then saved in a backup folder if you want. Neat. It keeps the content fresh and avoids meeting the same old creatures in every game.

Also I would suggest adding a collection of at least a dozen buddies to get a good spread of creatures and different styles.

The Sporecast functions are getting setup by Maxis so that will also add more capabilities.

@Pietoro

Those Magpings were spore-atic  >:(

@ kenotai
done.

I hope you all will add me as well. I know my creatures are not the top of the range but most of them "work" well enough.
And I found it a lot more interesting when you run into something created by someone you know from gamingsteve.
"Oh look there. It a Magping from Pietoro"  sounds better than "I just killed a Asfgdh from nooby256"

Next Episode will be the Tribe Stage - coming soon to a forum thread near you.....

I said ..
 

... as Demo for other family members or visitors.

meaning I made them myself but while showing off to other people.


Odd, considering the one in the middle of the last row on page one is MINE -- and a featured one at that...

Sorry about that.
Probably one I downloaded as an example but I can assure you I didn't edit it and repost it.
I just grabbed all the pictures in my folder to upload to photobucket.

I think the Magpings were friendly enough. Hard to remember all those names.

While back at the nest and pondering on all that DNA stuff... I picked up a stick and started drumming up. Then threw it up in the air...

What goes up must come down..

IDEA..



And with sticks you can also make fire...



And cook meals and play games... Let's start a new Tribe



Well now we will need houses and weapons and what else...???

I enjoyed this but I'm going to have to stop reading since your going into tribal stage. You might want to add that to your title, *Tribal Stage* so others know but then again, if they read, they'll know.

This would be a good storytelling thread. I've thought about doing that with my first adventure.
