He mentioned conquest via economic and cultural means, as well. Remember, all the cities on your home planet are inhabited by the same RACE, just different CULTURES of it.

I see. But that doesn't mean that multiple races can inhabit your planet, does it?

There is athe chance u can have 15 other cities and a chance of 0.

Unless the Spore engine puts u on a planet that will get other cities.

I'll bet that it'll put you on a planet with at least one other culture.

There were definitely other cultures, but NOT other races. That said, once we start engineering our own races... :)

I'll form alliances with the tougher and smarter nations. Then when they least expect it.... KABOOM!

Ah.. Someone's preferring the benefits of 'Realpolitik'..  ;D Yep.. That's probably going to be my strategy as well.. Choose my allies carefully, use them to fight a war against a less advanced species/empire, observe their strategies, then build up my armies/technology to match or outgrow theirs and.. when they least expect it: BANG! It's nice to have powerful allies, but there's always the potential that they might take you out.. And I'm not going to sit around and wait for that..  :D

I'd guess not until late city or even UFO stage.

If it's even possible.

pah! Screw 'em all. The moment they fail to recognize the glory of my empire, I'm pushing the big red planet destroying button.(The one that says do not push, not the other one). BOOOOOM. So what if we share the same planet, my people will understand the necesity of nuclear winter, we'll just evolve and adapt to something better.
