I didn't say it was an MMO, MMO's are multiplayer.

Sorry I meant MOG.

Well I wouldn't class it as a MOG as as far as I am aware there isn't an online option for playing only for uploading and downloading data so technically that doesn't make it an online game.

That's of course assuming MOG means what I think it does, Massive Online Game?  ;)

I don't know but uploading and downloading stuff constantly off of a large database sounds pretty online too me, atleast enough to classify it as an online game, it's certain massive, and a game...

You could have humans, humans who lay eggs. Like in the Mario Bro.'s movie, now let us never speak of it again. He made a Care Bear, I'm about 99% sure Care Bears don't lay eggs. I think they're born in sun-beams and jars of honey or something.

Humans laying eggs... :-\
That sounds pretty disturbing.
But since we won't see any difference between male and female(if there even is different sexes)I wouldn't make a human.

Has there been any words on different looks for males and females?

Not that I've heard of. In the picture of the two creatures mating they both looked the same, cept one was on the bottom.

I didn't know why people are saying they can't imagine expansion packs in this game.

This game has features that cross all the genres...  I think it was said in the podcast, perhaps in a reference to someith will wright said, "this isn't going to be simcity its going to be simcity lite... not a RTS an RTS lite."

My point is expansion packs filling out each of these areas.

Also the actual outer space part of it is limited in that you have a ship and you click on planets the end.  They could certianly add more content there, space battles or what have you.

There is PLENTY of room for them to milk this cow.

All we know of the outer space right now is you can use the SETI device to determine other inhabited plants that have reached the industrial age. He did talk about battling the one planet with his UFO and finally havign to retreat and nuke it. Any content they would add for the tribes and city eras would have to be purely mechanics, we create the objects. I can't imagine Maxis making an expansion just for game mechanics not when they could just upadate us. They've always been huge on adding more objects, and now that's our job.

"Can't imagine them making expansion packs when they could just update us"

I can think of a very good reason, MONEY.  Look at some of the early sims expansions like houseparty.  Besides some new items you got the ability to do some tasks with others and organise parties.  Thats it.  And it was an expansion pack.  People bought it.

We are talking about a business here, if they can profit, profit they shall.

The question is would you pay for an exapnsion? I know I would, hense it shall come.

Also consider that the server will require more maitenance then the other downloadable content oriented games they've had... more of an incentive to milk some cash now and then.

How would u like to get a GAME OVER! from a care bear race?

lol losing to care bears, that'd be both funny and sad.

If they did add an x-pack they'd prob add more phases cause tribal to modern is missing some stuff inbetween ain't it.

although you have a good point realise in the explaination of the game he "skipped ahead" in his demo a few times... so that filler might be in there.
