every time same galaxy?
« on: March 01, 2006, 02:17:30 am »
I've just thought of that:
when i start a new creature - or game - will it be in the same galaxy as in my first one and can i meet my first creatures on their homeplanet (and their colonies)?
that could become interesting....so you can enslave the population of your first game or wipe it out.....or using for crossbreeding

and if it's always the same galaxy, will i getting bigger every time i start a new game/creature?

questions over questions  ::) (can't wait until testing it ingame ;D)

If you ever found them then it's very possible. Your planet is uploaded to the server and downloaded to your new game. Finding it would be nearly impossible., of course.

That's actually a pretty good question. Will it be the same galaxy for every game, or will a new one be randomly generated for you every time you start fresh? If it is the same one every time it makes at least some sense that your previous creation should already exist there, and in theory you could eventually find it in the next game. But then assuming you advanced your last species to the galactic stage that'd mean a race exists that's more advanced than your new one, and from what I gathered that's regretably not supposed to be possible.
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

I dont think anyone has thought of meeting their former creations before,

However, it is pretty definate and I think it might have been confirmed,
that everyone's galaxy is randomly generated.

You could still maybe find your creature, maybe even change all your filters so that
it would put your old creature on lots of planets so it would be easier to find.

Or maybe a "ping creature* addition for your UFO.

It would be awsome to actually find your own creation in there!
Then you could change them culturally or mix up with them.
Or you could take two samplecreatures and then blow the planet to smithereens
or you could just let them be.
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

I would really really want this to make up my own full world of creatures and plants as such, that would be awesome.
So a big variety of filter selections would definately be a big wish for me.

Although there is the option to create new life at the UFO stage...but then it wouldn't start from the cell stage, or will it?

I seriously doubt it will be the same galaxy.
If you build up a huge empire of ruthless killing machines, you new creatures gonna have some real trouble once he comes to town.

Well seeing it from that if your previous one didn't conquer the galaxy as whole. As explained that you probably won't see all the planets in your lifetime. There would be way enough planets in your personal galaxy to safely start from.

I would think that each galaxy would be different, content wise, as your game will be filled with content based on how you play.

I bet that each galaxy will be different but I would love to see that your previously made creatures how up around your new galaxy at various stages of development.  It might be hard to figure out if the creature was yours or not simply because we don't know how often the game uploads your information.  It might be everytime you evolve the creature or it might be semi-periodic.  If that is the case, you might see 100 creatures that all resemble yours from different stages of development.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

OR, this would be absolutely cool if it was, you each and everytime would have the same galaxy but then you would start at a totally different place and your previous creatures start at null of their sentient life at their homeplanet. And seeing everything moves and because of it's sheer bigness, you would just know your other creature is out there but you can't find him.

Ridiculous, I know, but if we would have ALL the information about the game and nothing to speculate and dream about this board wouldn't even exist.

I remember once that Will said that your galaxy will be unique to you.  And that the planets around there will also be unique to how you make your creature, so if you make a water creature then more water planets will "form" around you, so that you see more water planets, same difference if your a land creature.  Which means it can't be the same galaxy the same time if its ever changing can it?

Also I can find the quote if need be... :)

Ug, I got a stupid pink unicorn, hope next is better.

That's actually a pretty good question. Will it be the same galaxy for every game, or will a new one be randomly generated for you every time you start fresh?


???? There are, by current estimates, 100 billion stars in the milky way galaxy! This number, pulled from one of my textbooks (published in 2000) doesn't even take into account the several billion recently discovered stars in the galactic interior.

The model they're using is far larger than they could ever hope to fill. My vote is a single galaxy. I'd imagine this galaxy (regarding placement of planets, types and the life on them) would be randomly generated each time (but content from the servers would be used to populate this singular galaxy to the full)..

Now, if they have multiple planet types that effect gameplay in some fashion (i.e. iceworlds or lavaworlds encouraging various different types of evolutionary development) it would be interesting to see my Fwaggle, which originally was created for a temperate plains kind of existence, evolving slightly differently when placed by the computer on an artic world (etc). I would doubt spore will be this sophisticated, however.
