The UFO
« on: March 18, 2005, 07:37:17 am »
I was wondering what type of different things you could do with the UFO. I read that you could abduct other creatures, transport whole cities, wage war with other planets. But could you like abduct a creature and than edit it, kinda like performing experiments on it or something similar. Everyone else feel free crop up some ideas about the UFO.

Well I just wonder how you advance once you have the UFO. Is there a little research screen? Because on the Podcast he said Wright said something like, "Well at this stage...I have another weapon developed thats better than those other weapons I was using." Then he blew up the planet. So do you do all kinds of research in the UFO?

That's a good one. Maybe the level of your UFO depends on the the civilization of the planet including what types of weapons and other stuff it can do.

Yeah, that makes sense. You just have to spur your civilization on to greater research, then its all loaded up onto the UFO.

Having been at the session: Will Wright clearly said something about 'earning money to buy new technologies'.

How exactly do you earn money if your species is the dominant on the planet? Or is this when intergalactic diplomacy comes in?

I believe that you will need to upgrade and improve your UFO with new technologies. I also mentioned that in the presentation that he mentioned that eventually you will get the technology to teraform planets and build colonies. He also showed us the “Genesis Device” if you remember which transformed the planet from a pile of rock into a green, living world in a matter of seconds.

So yes you will need to continuously upgrade and improve your UFO with newer and newer technologies (i.e. the interstellar drive).

You can definitely loose the technology: we saw him unleash volcanic mountains and even BLOW UP a planet.

Or did you mean lose? I doubt it - none of his games to date have let you lose technology.

I can't believe I still don't have that word down. I have all these plaques and certificates on the wall claiming I am smart and yet I still can't spell lose. I have always misspelled it loose. I think when I was in 1st grade I got it right on a spelling test. That was only because it was luck. lol Sorry for the misspell.

When I first read it, I really thought you meant to use the word 'loose'. Too much 'loosing the dogs of war' on my part. :)

UFO is a content creation, collection and editing tool. Play the abduction game. Fly around sucking up content, on your own world, as well as from worlds made by other players. Abduct one of the creatures that was chasing us before, to get even. Perform genetic experiments on the life forms you pick up. Put them back or relocate them to other worlds.

As one report said, when you get into space-exploration it's possible to cross-breed aliens from other worlds with your own species (which was compared to the X-Files) or 'uplift' them (i.e turn non-sentient creatures into sentient ones, ala 2001: A Space Odyssey).

Oh, wow. Thanks for the input. Especially the "uplifting" that will be interesting!
