I think they need to add another line to the cards for the 'scientific name'. It would add a bit of character. If you've ever seen a Road Runner cartoon you'll know what I'm talking about.

Road Runner
Acceleratti Incredibilus
Velocitus Tremenjus
Hot-Roddicus Supersonicus
Speedipus Rex
Velocitus Delectibus
Delicius-Delicius
Dig-Outius Tid-Bittius
Tastyus Supersonicus
Birdibus Zippibus
Birdius High-Ballius
Burnius-Roadibus
Digoutius-Unbelieveus
Super-Sonicus Baduouticus
Velocitus Incalculus
Speedipus-Rex
Digoutius-Hot-Rodis
Fastius Tasty-us
Tid-Bittius Velocitus
Disappearialis Quickius
Burn-em Upus Asphaltus
Semper Food-Ellus
Ultra-Sonicus Ad Infinitium
Boulevardius Burnupius

Coyote:
Carnivorous Vulgaris
Road-Runnerus Digestus
Eatibus Anythingus
Famishus-Famishus
Eatibus Almost Anythingus
Eatius Birdius
Famishius Fantasticus
Eternalii Famishiis
Famishus Vulgaris
Famishius Vulgaris Ingeniusi
Famishius-Famishius
Eatius-Slobbius
Famishius-Famishius
Hardheadipus Delirius
Carnivorous Slobbius
Hard-Headipus Ravenus
Evereadii Eatibus
Apetitius Giganticus
Hungrii Flea-Bagius
Overconfidentii Vulgaris
Caninus Nervous Rex
Grotesques Appetitus
Nemesis Ridiculii
Dogius Ignoramius

And so forth.

ok a question about sporepedia.

we know that the game automaticly updates your game with other creatures/buildings/plants/etc and tries to addapt to your style but what if you have a friend who plays spore (say your friend lives next door) and you would like to have his creature on your world or in your universe, is there a way to get his specific creature?

Some people here may say "easy just buy it from the downloaded content" but the thing is there is a good chance that there will be hundreds or thousands of creatures to sort through. so what I was thinking was, is there a way sporepedia cards can be used outside the game? e.g. export a card to your desktop or a specific sporepedia folder. then trade this online (through MSN or e-mail) and this card holds the data for your creature (Will already said the data for files would be tiny) and then your friend could put that card into their game and their sporepedia.

There is going to be a 'friends list'. Free choice of download might be limited to after to clear the UFO stage (in my opinion)

I think when Spore comes out there'll be kind of a "space race" going on - which gamer can get to Space age the quickest so they can check out other planets for user created creatures.

there's a friend's list as lego said, you can also search the creator's name or send creatures by e-mail or disk.  I'm assuming you could also search the creature's name.

Also they have a little apple which looks like it shows if it s a good thing to eat. The pink pig thing has a green apple while most of the rest have an apple core. Which means they probbly are not so good to eat.

Or that might not be an apple core or apple and just show if they if they are a carnivore (red) or herbivore (green).

No, your wrong, its either an apple or a piece of meat depending on if your creture is a herbivore or a carnivore respectively.

Looks like a fruit and a drumstick to me -- carnivore vs. herbivore.

Actually, the pink one is a piece of meat with a bite out it if, those icons are herbivore and carnivore.

Though here's an interesting question. What about creatures with the same name.

Or your computer will overheat trying to solve the problem and melt through to the center of the Earth.

Seriously though, why would that be a problem?  We call ourselves humans, say some other species does the same, does that mean one of us aren't humans?  No it just means we both have the same name.  It might mean you have 3 or 4 names to search through in an encyclopedia but thats no worst than the average phone book (a lot of people have the same name).
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

CGW claims that the first five stages of the game can probably be comepleted in well under 10 hours if somebody's rushing through it. I'm sure some people will reach the Space stage on day one.
Looks like even I was being optimistic with a March 07 release date...

So i was not sure. Though eatting carnivores cannot be all that good to eat. Fat herbivores i bet give more food.

or maybe only sentient creatures have the extra stats?
I doubt it...it's more likely that you see the last two stats when you view the card in detail.
I agree.

Anyone thought that our creatures will be save in 5KB files to a respective folder for creatures? you don't need to "export sporepedia card" in order to send your friend a criature, just to to the criature folder and copy the files with the creatures you want (assuming the files are named with the name of the creature).
