Something I've been wondering for a long time
« on: January 20, 2007, 07:26:18 am »
So as we all have known for years, content is pulled from other people's creations onto your own gaming experience.

My question is what will happen when the game first comes out, before anyone has made anything?

Then the game will use pre-made content from the disk. It is said the disk comes with a lot of premade stuff from the devs so you can play the game fine offline if you want to. So I should think everything will be supplemented by dev creations until players start adding stuff.

Unless you happen to be the absolute FIRST person to create a creature and go into your world, I doubt it would be all dev creatures.

To be honest, I doubt that. During the GDC05 Will mentioned that "the computer could play with these settings too" which at that point sounded a lot like they would try to implement that feature. However, later I think they mentioned that content can only be added by players. I might also be wrong about this, anyone here who remembers what they said?

My guess is that there will be enough content in the game to get you started... and probably last for a long time. Since it is so easy to create things in the game the developers can create a creature in 3 minutes and do so for a few yours every day they will have alot of creatures. Some devs might create alot of different models for houses and planes, cars and so on so my guess you will get enough on the DVD to last you troughout the game.

Yeah its been stated that there is LOTS of content on the CD so if you either dont want to share/download or dont have internet you can still play.

Ahem. But yes, the omnibus was created for the reason of disseminating all currently known info. Use it well.

That's a nicer way of putting it, Luminar.  ;D Thank you.

Well, in either case, I've always been pleased that Maxis are going to ship out some content on the disc; to me, that's kind of like a back-up in case the unthinkable happens and everyone else's stuff is rubbish and/or vulgar.

That's a very pessimistc view of course. But then, isn't that what this forum is all about?  ;)

Actually, no matter what time you get the game, there will probably be someone else playing, so you will almost always have content. And if there isn't, there IS going to be content on the disc.

Right now all EA employees can play spore from begginning to end so when Spore is released to the world you will have all of their content on the servers as well as any that the devs made.
