Tamed creatures/Pets
« on: July 06, 2005, 07:30:07 pm »
If only one fully sentient race (yours) will appear on the planet, where does it leave the rest? After the Land and Water evolution stage and possibly tribal (Hunting for food) will you really need to deal with them too much?(unless they can attack your city or something) Sure their'll be a lot of fun stuff to do with genetic modification and abduction and stuff like that, but that doesn't seem like it'll really benifit your creatures in anyway.(Though it will be fun. lol.)

Why not be able to tame some of the wild creatures and keep them as pets or use them as alternate modes of transportation (like horses). If there were pets it would releve over all stress of your race of creatures probably. (if stress level is a factor in some way(Like the fun need in the sims))
If the creatures were used as transportation at the very least it would save energy and possibly money (since i'm guessing all those tanks cost something.)
It would turn them from an enemy compeating for survival to a much needed resource.

(unless they can attack your city or something)

Although there is only one sentient species there can be multiple tribes / cities of your spcies that will want to attack / trade with you on your own planet.

My feeling is that you have to conquer your own planet first before you venture into space, either thourgh trade / war or other means.

no, i know that, i just ment attack by some of the more giant creatures coming across the city and... never mind.

But what does venturing into space really have to do with my topic?

Well, like on Earth, they would be wild animals.

yes, so why not be able to tame them? or at least some of them. it would be pretty useful. (more useful to your race then blowing them up on a planet with no atmosphere. lol. Though less funny...)

Maybe the less aggressive ones could be tamed.

true, but tamed creatures would have benifits for all also.

I think that's a brilliant idea. I believe that tamed animals will be possible. Just go to the Spore official site.

The only thing that implies domestication there is the group of Hop Tarts near the hut.

I have a question. Do you get genetic manipulation before you go to the Galactic stage, and if so can you use it to raise another species to sentience (well I mean at that stage in the game would your genetic manipulation have that ability). If so you could artificially create 2 sentient species on your homeplanet.
