COOL! spice geysers add height! I love how long you can fly to. very good in stategic get-aways or "death-from-above" style attacks... though since it's so good, I bet alot of people will be adding wings to thier creatures.... and I really dislike how wings look. especially since most people just slap em' on and make no attempt to blend the,... :'(
The mind is a terrible thing to waste...

I was flapping about as fast as I could.
it takes a moment for the skill to recharge between flaps.
My creature was about as big as the editor would let me make him. I'm not sure if smaller creatures will be able to fly more easily.
If you're worried about how the wings look on your creature, remember that you can make them very small and they'll still work just as well. You could probably even hide them under some other object.

Flying is better than I thought it might be. I was expecting just moving Parallel to the ground but even with the basic insect wings you can still have plenty of control. From what I gather the better the wings the longer you can stay up. In fact I found especially late in the creature stage where you have to travel further to find new creatures travelling with out wings can be a right pain.

With wings you can evade predators even epics with much more ease instead of having them chase you constantly and you hoping you can out run them wings can take you instantly out of range and naturally allow you to move much faster. Still I tested and found you can't fly across oceans in the same way you can't swim when you get to far out you just fall from the sky and are eaten.

Wow, that was fantastic!
I wonder if you can use fly and then combine it with another attack like charge to dive-bomb an enemy?

If your creature can fly, then a lot of the times when you use charge it actually jumps up into the air and charges through the air at the enemy.

I tried flying across the water to get to an island that I saw in the distance, but when I was about halfway there a cutscene happened of my creature falling out fo the sky and getting eaten by a big sea creature. Same as what happens if you try to walk too far into the water.

Maybe they really want you to make a boat to get there first.

This is gliding people!

I have to disagree, gliding is just falling with style. This is just relatively limited flying

And seeing how you can flap your wings for height that is flying.

Couple of questions

Can you fly? I have seen spores actually flying. Also, what does it mean by level 5 glide? Does that mean you have to have 5 things on your spore that can glide?

If you add wings to your creature that gives you the flight trait you can press Space to fly. Tapping it is supposed to make you fly all the time, but I haven't been able to. If you mouse over the fly icon on the bottom center of the screen you should see what key to press to make it happen.

The glide 5, means it have the rank 5, which should let you glide longer. It works the same way as bite 5, dance 5 and such. Stronger ranks which is needed to fight/socilalize stronger creatures.
