OH HELLO THERE
So, i've got some suggestions. I think, you shall recreate custom abilities, because honsetly they look dumb. Seriously? Beam? Bubble gun? Monster coming from ground? I know that spore got limited number of effects and animations, but still. Make something interesting and balanced. For example, fireballs. Yea, fireballs. Simple but nice. Take animations from GA (shaman weapon animations is best for this imo) and "campfire" effect.
Really. It's simple, possible and nice. And better than waterfall coming straightly on enemy or giant rocket coming from small creature, creating nuke explosion.
