Sporecasts!
« on: September 06, 2008, 10:16:20 am »
It seems random picking from the whole database is down or not functioning - hopefully, Maxis will sort this one soon - however, in the mean time, Sporecasts DO work (although you have to subscribe through the US site because the EU one is down at the moment).

Post your recommended Sporecasts here! (No Sporon please ;) )

Personally, I'm enjoying the PC Gamer ones. (search: PC Gamer)

What do you mean that random picking is down?

Well if you want some great epics in your game search Godzilla it contains almost every Godzilla character I can think of.If you want some detailed,unique,and realistic designs then search realistic.... there are some great sporecasts that include content from me,Parkaboy,and MindMuncher.

If you are interested in unique, well-made alien creature, i managed to pull together a Sporecast while that function was working:

the Quality, Plausible Aliens Sporecast

It has nearly 600 creatures, many from gamingsteve members, and a large helping of creatures i've found elsewhere.  I've avoided joke, gimmick, object, excessively cute, robotic etc. creature, and focused on alien weirdness in the tradition of Wayne Douglas Barlow, or Snaiad.

I'm trying to be pretty selective with what's included, so when i get a chance to see everything in-game, I'll cull any that don't animate well, or have other issues.  There are a very few post creature-stage creatures, but i will certainly add more as they become available.

Huh?  There are 2 "Gaming Steve" Sporecasts i can find on Sporepedia. One has about 50 creatures and the other 30.

While i think it would be cool if there was a Sporecast that included much of the Gaming Steve member content, such a sporecast does not currently exist.

i must be stupid or dumb today, but i can't figure out how to add creatures to a sporecast. (not one i made) can you add stuff to a sporecast someone lese started, or is that person the only person who can add/remove content from the sporecast?

i'm confused:'(

May I suggest that we try to have just 1 gaming steve sporecast?

Or at least just one that is a catch-all for ALL content of any type made by Gaming Steve players?

can we still just tell the game to get stuff the the gamingsteve tag? because if we cn, we don't really need an everything gamingsteve sprecast with like 20,000 things in it.

They have disabled the Sporecast making feature of the website for now... it had problems.  Currently you need the game to make one.

I started one but I can't add to it yet because the feature is down off the website. It would be nice if we could make one that would pick up creatures from the tags.

I don't like that the game lets you choose only one sporecast as your theme for a particular play.  I would like the option to draw from multiple sporecasts on each game.  That way, some of those 6 creature sporecasts would make sense. 

As it is, even the gamingsteve spore cast (currently with 46 creatures) is not really enough.  That's especially true since they are mostly advanced creatures -- you would hardly see any of them at the beginning of the game.
