They seem to be able to use the aircraft to get spice from sea derricks anyway.

Also, I don't see much of a point of having a port on that particular planet when its a frozen sea and conventional ships aren't going anywhere on that.

Besides the really big round space of flat land that it adds to any colony is ugly.

I have a world with a sea port colony the onyl way I managed it though was I set down the colony pack while in T1 and while lifting to T3 the seas rose up causing a sea port.

I was trying to feed food to an animal in the tribal stage. When the tribe member put it down, the animal walked over to him and hugged him. It kept hugging until I moved my tribe members. It was so cute!

I saw a piece of fruit fall off a tree, roll down a steep hill and hit a creature.
The creature responded with the "!@#*" type word bubble.

It seems like there's a fair amount of interesting interactions that you can't really do anything with or predict.

Was your critter a social herbivore? I'd really want to see that. :)

It was an agressive herbivore that likes pets. It looked more like a glitch than anything but it was still cute!

Speaking of that bubble. I saw that once when I was playing a flying insectoid species, and a very good predator at that. I was flying towards a group of creatures when I saw one of them give that bubble over them right before I attacked. It was sort of like they spotted me and one of them went 'oh s**t!!' *gets stabbed by a reapermantis (the part)*

I've also gotten the question mark when doing social with some creature and the particular creature I was doing was legless and the other was doing a dance animation. Thats just an example as I've seen it in other instances.

The '!$%@' type word bubble also comes up when one of your packmates spots (or perhaps hears) an epic, which can actually help when you didn't see it.

two things I noticed yesterday while playing a new species and just hitting spacestage.

The first planet the 'tutorial' missions asks you to terraform i did to T1, and left. When I came back a few minutes later, it had an epic on it. (One of the types I put in, so I guess epics can randomly happen?)

2nd was same game, just hitting space, when u have to 'buy' the first star drive, there was an object in there, that was *** (name and description was ***) and it cost 1 spore buck... so I bought it. Still dont know what it did or what it was.

lol! It looked more like it was trying to hump your creature though.

Edit: oh yea, while its probably more of a glitch, but I've been getting the unhappy face for systems that aren't even inhabited. Just thought it was a little wierd for that to happen in a system that nobody lives in.

I had a funny momment today.I was in cell stage and I was hunting down a tiny cell.Out of no where came 3 different epic cells.They were all around me and the tiny cell.They were coming at me and the little guy at full speed because they were riding a flow.The little cell started glitching,turning in all directions,not knowing who to swim away from.The flows converged on each other and it was massive micro chaos.I ended up getting the little cell and escaped the dog pile.

The second funny thing about the same situation was that the epic cells got stuck to each other and were also glitching and crying out in pain.I was laughing so hard and wasnt paying attention,so I swam straight into the mouth of another epic cell.

LOL  anew one today. Stacked colonies.

First happened when I tried to drop a colony while a large plant was behind my ship(U know the bug where it seems to want to lock onto the tree and sends whatever your beaming down across the planet)

So i tried to test it, dropping a tree and clicking the same spot on that said tree, and yippie, I stacked 3 colonies ontop of each other, then dropped all the colony extra's(loyalty booster, spice storage, etc) ontop of them. problem is.. it takes a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time. (U drop colony and it orbits the planet a few times before it lands or something, and while it's in flight, u can't do anything else....lol)

Unfortunately... u are able to grab the buildings from 1 city while in the editor of another.. and if u place said building down inside the editor of the one u are building, the game crashes.

But at least if u know how to place the buildings, u never have to move any.got 3-4 planets that way before I 'moved' a factory(and crashed)

Pretty funny though, wonder how good of a defense that would be, 24 turrets all shooting at the same ship, while said ship tries to kill the spice storage(which always seems to be the priority target for attack ships)
