'Pokedex' For Spore
« on: January 17, 2006, 02:26:12 am »
How about this idea? It is an in-game 'sporeopedia' that tracks all creatures you have encountered. It would include the creature's name, and any bio info the creator wanted to stick in, as well as a picture of it. Perhaps also a button to warp you to the closest one of these creatures on the game-map or somthing?

This sporeopedia of course, would be fully custumizable. For example, if you encounter the Phallostrich on some far-off planet, you can either rename it and change the explicit bio, or even kick the creature from the 'dex. Thoughts?

Yes, I was hoping for something along those lines.
Even if it isn't in the game, I do plan on cataloguing a few notable creatures on my own (picture, behavior, habitat, other info if possible).

I do like the idea of going on sort of a galactic data collection; it would be endless, which means plenty of collecting.

Thats such a brilliant idea that i dont have any doubts that is one of the many Space medi games you can do at the UFO stage.

Definately, I'd love this. And hopefully you'd be able to let it walk around like in the presentation when Will was showcasing his creatures. That would be alot more fun than a picture :) Also, this very well may make it in, because we will be able to genetically alter other races.

When you're advanced enough, the Sporepedia could also hold DNA samples of the creatures you've abducted...

My very own hitchikers guide :) We'll record their existence right before we blow up the planet to build a highway. Yay.

Fantastic idea, Caltrop!
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

Wow, that would be nice... A floating representation of it, so you can see it from all sides.

Or how about a tiny zoo inside your UFO? That you float through, showing the different kinds of animals...

This could be used to see what kind of effects different aliens can be subjected to, like different climates, different predators, etc.
XYZZY!

if only one idea from this forum ever makes it into the dev's heads, this is it

Yeah, a Wikipedia type of thing would be great. It would be great if some people started to draft a site for it.
I need a sig because the lack of one annoys me.

I'd perfer the term "Biosphedia" (biosphere encyclopedia -- or Sporipedia).

Anyway, I'm pretty sure there'll be an index of some kind where you can view everyone's creatures, or just your own. A database is pretty customizable in that you can select just about anything you want.

i think it would make the perfect excuse to buy a psp.

if they had a pocket sized spore that could be used via wireless to earn EP/$ during ones commute.

add a "Magnus Sporidium"/"Grimorum Sporidium" index to it to actually be able to browse and perfect creatures would be so awesome.

it would revive the digipet craze all over again.

Kind of like the civilopedia from Civilization?  I'm personally all for it.  I loved that thing in that game.
