A link some may find interesting
« on: June 23, 2005, 03:54:50 am »
Here's a site I recently found. Not about Spore but about 'an interactive simulation of the solar system'.

http://vterrain.org/Packages/IUE/

Not sure if it hasn't posted already. It looks interesting and it would be very cool if Spore could look like that. Who knows in Spore 2...

I believe if Will wanted a more realistic looking game, he woulda made it. Obviously he wants it to be more cartoony than that simulated solar system. Look at the transition between the Sims and the Sims 2. It was more realistic, but still with Will's trademark cartooniness.

I think it has more to do with generalization. If it looked realistic, casural people would consider it 'too complex'. If it looks like a cartoon, people go 'Hey! I like cartoons! They're silly!', and will at least look at the game. I'd prefer realistic graphics as well, but I understand that a general audience is worth far more than a specialized one (something that you should remember in your evolutionary endevours as well.)

I actually think the spore graphics look nicer.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Spore's graphics look much more "clean" and easier on the eye than this.  No thanks, i want Spore the way it is.
