Creatures instead of Plants?

Unread postby Dzekin_ » Fri Jan 24, 2020 4:44 am

Hey guys, so I was thinking... you probably know this living statue glitch that many of us use in GA? Yeah, the one, where you camouflage gate in to building, but then you go to change it in the editor and thru it you can go to edit creatures etc.

If this works because of the way that you can see Sporepedia in any editor, then maybe if you could go in to flora editor, when choosing the plant, you should theoretically be able to use the same glitch? The only problem is, that you can't go and edit plants...
Is there possibly a way to force game to allow us to go edit plants to do this glitch?

Also, would there be a way to make this glitch occur in the game thru mod?
For instance, creatures, even buildings with tag "flora","small"/"medium"/"big" could be rendered as possibilities to populate with? something similar to how "gaprop" stops certain creations from being randomly generated on planet as animals/plants and in cities as buildings/vehicles.

What do you think about it?



p.s About the fruits on fruit plants... Uh... didn't think this part thru... maybe fruits would grow there, where the creature plant has hands? Or could theoretically just add a fruit as a creature part??... I dunno

You can already do that if you have Branching Evolution installed. Just double-click the flora instead of pressing the Edit button.

My main account broke a while ago, so I created this alt.
