Maybe you can choose the colors for specific parts.
Wheels - green
Armor panels - yellow
Missle - red

Just way more indepth.
-Just like Gaming Steve all of my ideas, suggestions, and comments are merely edjucated guesses. These are based on prior experience and current released info.-

There doesn't seem to be any coloration selection for 'specific parts' - it looked like he was going through whole-body textures.

That might have just been something for a demonstration, though. Since everything is probably procedurally generated, I wouldn't be suprised to find out about some sort of texture editor that starts with basic types (say, the wood from the boat) and lets you mess with it more and get it the way you like. Judging from what Wright's ninja programmers have done so far, I wouldn't think that would be out of reach at all.

Well, it would be easy to do, but the fact of the matter is that they are going for EASE OF USE. Meaning anything complicated is done AUTOMATICALLY. Assigning surface types seems pretty complicated.

Yet Will Wright demonstrated that he has a VERY complex game wrapped in a superb ease-of-use shell.

P.S. -- Yes, I spell it "color" because I speak in the American English dialect.
You mean the 'American CRAZY Dialect'

The American English Dialect is better because we have more nukes and guns than you.

it shouldn't.  We should all just be able to be content in the fact that there is little that differentiates us from one another (organically).  Weaponary does make one "civilization" more superior than the other, but I really wish people wouldn't think that way.

Yes, but people do think that way, mostly because the people with the most advanced weapons can kill everybody else. It's evolution. If there's another critter running around who has 10 mouths with 100 razor teeth in each one, you don't want to get on his bad side.

Simply on the basis that you can create a creature with 10 mouths with 100 teeth in each mouth and then evolve it and make it a super power when u reach modern civilization that has weapons that blow everyone else way who disagrees with u in this game yes we are talking about spore.
