Yeah its not as noticeable in cell as it is in creature phase with no eyes.

Does that mean that eyes actually mean something in Creature phase?

Yes. You have a limited "sight" range and its all black and white colors.

thats a pretty awesome simulation of seeing via sound - obviously tinkered for gameplay value over realism value

yeah or based on simple eye photo receptor or something.  Anyhow, I've been hinding eyes on any "eyeless" creature I make because I figured this would be included :)  I only have one blind and it needed to be for it's story

They really should expand the senses (I can see that being an expansion pack). i.e., anywhere from echo location (which is technically done with a specialized mouth), to certain colors only being visible, and maybe to outlines.

Hmm...if you keep your creature blind throughout the whole game, are the later phases distorted too?  Like tribal, civ, space etc?

i'd think tribal stage would be, but after that, i don't really know. i guess in space stage they would already have the technology to make up for that, but i don't know about civ.

Hydromancerx do you go to Heavengames?

No.

Thought so.

Why?

Dunno, seemed like a lame place for you to be. I really don't see much point in a Spore heavengame, other than exploiting the popularity andd stuff.

Well the more people playing Spore the more content there will be. So i am all for more people playing it. Cause even if most of it sucks there will be a % of it that is good which we can collect and use in our games.

The no-eye effect is pretty cool.
I wish they had taken it a little further and expanded the sight range as more or better eyes were added.

I'd think that after Creature there wouldn't be any effects, because cell and creature is you controlling an individual being, and the rest is like a 3rd party unit-commanding role, not from the view of an individual creature.

Holy crap, the sweetest thing just happened on the stream- the guy tried to escape from some predators by gliding over a pond. He couldn't glide the whole way though, so he fell in the water and a giant green mouth came up out of the water and ate him.

well... not to rain on anyones parade, but this is how most games create boundaries.... invisible boundaries. You can't get past the monster, but it eats you if you go in the water type of thing. sounds funny in the video, but it'll suck in the game if tentacles and mouths eat us whenever we try to swim... I kinda wanted to be able to go into some ponds and rivers... :'(
The mind is a terrible thing to waste...
You gonna eat that part?
