spore HUD (heads up display)
« on: November 11, 2006, 09:00:44 pm »
http://www.xspore.com/spore_screenshots.html (scroll down till u get to teh more spore whoo section and its the bottom lef

lets talk about teh hud seen as this is a fairly receant pic and im preaty sure its safe to say it wont change much if it changes at all
you'll have to full screen the ic to get a good look at the hud:
mi interpretations of the hud:
- the very top left icon i the options
-the very botom left icon is the pause gameplay button
- the next icon is your brain meter (how many parts of the brin you've unlocked) so far in this pic he has unlocked 2 levels (u can get a better look at the at the brain meter in the battle fish editor pic  which is the 3rd pic down to the very riht of the 1st set of pics.) also you will notice a quater ring around the brain meter im preatty dure this is like an exp meter but instead of leveling up it to the next brain level unlock.
- the next meter is the DNA meter which as far as i no to get DNA points you will have to eat others eggs but the is probably more which we havent been showen yet.
- the next seems to be a love meter of some kind im guessing wen u call out and get a reply from another creature ready to love it fills up depending on how close she is. but thats only a guess so and sguggestions would b great
- obviously the next is hunger and then life
- i dunno if the lighting bolt at teh end is a metter for a special move of sumfin or just an icon like to let you no ur in the mood menu or wateva.

any other suggestions would be great

I'm just going to cheat and quote myself:

3.5 Interface



The interface consists of a status bar in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.  From left to right we have:
 - Current Brain Size – a small picture representing the size of brain your creature has along with a slider (brain points?)
 - DNA Points – In the E3 Spore Demo this number increased from 0 to 100 after Will Wright’s creature started eating an egg.
 - Possibly Mating Points – Judging by the two little heart symbols, we can imagine that this is some sort of Mating Points Meter.  When this is full, your creature is able to mate.  Appears to go up after eating.
 - Hunger Level – This goes up after eating of course.
 - Health Point – Goes down when attacked.  Presumably gradually recovers over time.
 - Energy – Probably goes up after eating and gradually decreases over time.  It may be used to determine the limitation of your creature’s movement. (e.g. you can’t run whilst your energy is low).

Translation: But when Wills creature ate the egg, he said it gave him DNA points that allowed him to mate.

Maybe the "mating metre" is a sort of biological clock thingy? When it reaches a certain point in its cycle, you get to mate, for eksample.

- the next meter is the DNA meter which as far as i no to get DNA points you will have to eat others eggs but the is probably more which we havent been showen yet

For heavnes sake why did people keeps saying only eggs give you DNA points, with clearly seen that in videos anything you eat gives you DNA points just not egs.

Like in one video we see the screeble eat the little pink thing and gets DNA points and the guy playing even points out that he gets DNA points from eating the creature.

Now its just a waiting game until next year

Damn'it you noob. You correct his spelling only to spell example wrong in the next sentance. "Gees" If your gonna bitch about other people's spelling at least learn to spell better than they can.

You seem very fond of the word "noob." :lol:

So you mean to say that my spelling, even though I got a little Norwegian mixed into there, wasnt easier to read than his? Because if thats what you are suggesting, then you, my friend, are an ass. :D

In adition, Id like to add that English is my second language, and though I hate to see it raped I too make the occasional mistake. ;)

Either take the time to spell your posts properly or expect to be ignored. Nuff said.
