Mine will be giant flowting spheres thatare propelled by extremely strong magnets!
maybee even whole moving cities that move from place to place depending on temperature!

That's a pretty interesting idea.  How do you intend to do that?  Equally powerful magnets of the same charge directly under your cities on the ground/ocean that move with them?  Doesn't seem like it would work too well, as someone could just take that out to bring your whole city crashing down.  Is it possible to use the planet's magnetic field against itself?
Ho-hum.

From what we have heard, cities can't move.  There are no aerial cities.  As for the magnet thing, you can imagine any type of propulsion you want.  I doubt there is that level of complexity.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

Ill at least make it SEEM like it! ill add in little details for an effect...
As for the cities I'm not sure if there will be a way to manipulate them so they can move... But i can still try!

did you know they were called 'tanks' because the workers didn't even know what they were making?  The workers were told they were building special issue water tanks.  ;D

That's all the showing off for me... I'm now completely drained of trivia   ???

I was less asking about it within spore as an idea for something outside of the game.  It just seemed like a neat concept, since we do the whole thing with bullet trains and magnetic repulsion, although I realize it's pretty farfetched and probably impossible, as well as impractical. :P
Ho-hum.
