An turret editor.
Like the vehicle creator but only balacing between attack force and hit points.

Yes! Or even just for looks, like with the building and UFO editors.
It's annoying to be able to make all your buildings and vehicles to a certain theme but then have the turrets pre-set with a certain look.

- The ability to set a house, entertainment building, and factory for my entire race.

- A small shrine or something in the Space phase that is located on your homeworld, where you arose from the water.

- A "recently used" tab in the Sporepedia, so I don't have to slightly tweak someone's thing so that it shows up as "mine" so I can find it easilly. (So if you see one of your things with the name of MisterBibs, I mean no offense.)

Make the creature phase look a bit more like real life.

Yea I know, all animals do is sit by their nest and dance, growl, or both.

6. The ability to delete content from within the game without "banning" it.

I know that this is already possible. I go through my Sporepedia on a regular basis deleting all buildings and vehicles that are not painted. I just go to the everything tab, select the card I want to delete, and hit the trashcan icon. >_>

But you can't delete it while playing. Like you can't come across an unpainted building while in the Civ stage and just delete it right then and there. Or am I missing something?

I don't think you can while playing. And I don't want to delete content everyday that will get uploaded again after a while.

Actually, you're right. I ran across this today. I flew down to visit an alien empire and sprinkle them with my super happy ray to find that one of their buildings was 3 white boxes stacked on top of each other with no other features whatsoever, while another of their buildings was some obscene content. Couldn't get rid of either of them without hitting the ban button. Ended up leaving the white boxes because I don't want anyone getting in trouble over something silly like that.  :-\

Exactly. They obviously have the technology in the game to remove a piece of content and replace it with something else (it'd be nice if it wasn't always Maxis made, though). They just need to remove the reporting part.

I would very much like to be able to tilt building pieces 3 ways without first attaching them to a connector, tilting and then taking off.

I really like the idea of having an ingame chat feature, so you could talk with other people on your buddy list who are playing.

Third"ed"

At least we should get a message while playing that one of our creatures got a comment to approve. 
Then you could have a basic messaging system using comments.

It would also be nice to have a way of leaving a comment on a person's profile itself rather than on a particular creation.

  • Picking up smaller creatures (i.e., a small, slender vermiform creature) and eating them.
  • Stealing eggs from nests by grabbing them.
  • A MMO-type feature similar to say, Second Life, where you get to choose any creature of your choice and enter any rooms Maxis created. A fully-fledged MMO game wouldn't necessarily be a good idea, as there will be people blowing up cities and planets everywhere and basically ruining others' game experience.
  • For the Water Phase, there should be epic creatures too. A Kraken would make a good epic.
  • A longer, more in-depth cell phase, for instance, new parts (those from the secret Cell Editor), longer gameplay, and the chlorplast idea suggested by Ittiz is great!
  • What are we going to do with all that squandered food in the Tribal Phase? You could maybe feed your pets with it.
  • Whatever creatures you have domesticated, I think it would be neat seeing them in the city.
