Would it be possible to implement like a slide of some sort that would determine how many percent of the galaxy the Grox do actually occupy? This could have lots of potential for roleplay. Imagine you are this last civilization that the Grox had not yet wiped out and your purpose is to restore all sentinent life in galaxy to rebuild its' former self
Or what if you are the civilization that is watching the Grox expansion and tries to stop them before it's too late? Or maybe YOU want to wipe out all the organic life to leave only yourself on the board? And the Grox are only a weak, disgusting plague of the universe, that would be nothing without their technology?
Also, I think a cool idea might be the building technology. The lazy solution of this weird purple magnetic field (or whatever it is) has always bothered me. What if some stats to the buildings were introduced, like size and the used materials (which might be unlocked and chosen for some kind of points at the in-game editor) to limit the possibilities of erecting buildings in the colonies?
This might be a temporar creativity limitation, that could be bypassed by buying technology and implementing it in the colonies (for instance earthquake-resistant building substructures, so they could be built taller, or water and oxygen treatment devices to increase the population or some UV-resistant coatings, that would overcome the lack of the planet's magnetic field). This could open the potential for even more modded content like planet statistics that could determine the needed technology for initial colonization on the T0 ttypes and the direction of future terraforming till the planet is T3.
I know it is a lot and the possibilities of modding Spore are limited (really, screw u EA
), but I am full of random stuff that I'd like to share
Btw, I'm kinda new to the forum. Could you give me any clue on why I cannot acquire some files? Do I have to overcome a number of posts threshold or something... I don't have any access to some of the mod files that that are posted on davo...
