well, my danglerfish finally work. turns out i had "don't eat creatures in danger of extinction" turned on. i thought it was keeping them from eating creatures with a low global population, when actually it was keeping them from eating creatures with a low LOCAL population, which meant they barely ever attacked anything.

now they worked though. i changed to "don't eat sleeping creatures" and added hibernation to keep my high karma. they maintain a stable population of around 3-6 on every screen they enter.

edit: aand, i am now in the top 5 for biomass, ahead of any other predator.

I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

it's on the continent near 0,0. it's the "danglerfish", a size 5 predator with tentacles.

also it hovers in te teens on the biomass list.

There's going to be at least 1000 posts like that on the offical board when spore comes out... :D
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

okay, i just reached #1, and the slot keeps shifting between me and busta rhymes :P

but i'm more than a little alarmed by the tiny multiplying mushroom things (not goombas)

Ok, I downloaded it, but it doesn't seem to let me log in.

It says, "Testing for Firewall capacity"

then "Initializing"

then "Trying to Reconnect"

what's wrong?

i had the same problem do you have a router if so go to the configure thing for it and go to gaming a applications and open up ports from 4008 to 4010 if that does not work i got the numbers wrong so just check the game web site if that does not work

I got on for awhile last night and couldn't make anything that lived for more than 10 minutes. They kept getting killed off by a blue cloud, Homer Simpson (?!?!?!) and Leng's fish.

The game looks really cool and everything, but I can't seem to play it, largely due to the fact that I can't even get the installer to open. As in: I open the installer, my computer sits there for a minute, and then I get one of them error support things. Does anyone have any idea as to what I should do?
Yeah, there's words there.

My creautre were idiots, they seemed to decide that killing a danglerfish would be a good idea. They didn't last


I have created a new herbivore:



The Rainbow Square! They actually seem to be doing pretty well.

Those hearts keep killing me, they eat all the green seeds before they can turn into goo. And my little guy needs his goo. Once they get on my screen I start swatting them, if that doesn't kill them I nuke it.  Evil death hearts.
