Realistic Creature Stage AI?

Post your mod requests/ideas here, not in with the actual mods.
NOTE: We can't add "new" functionality, so if there's nothing in Spore that can already do it, we probably can't do it either. That's a bit of an overgeneralization, but still a valid rule of thumb...

Realistic Creature Stage AI?

Unread postby NathanielRD » Mon Dec 04, 2017 6:10 pm

So I am new here, some of you may know me from the Sporum, I am not here to introduce myself, I just have an idea for a mod.

So I was just thinking, a lot of people called the earlier version of the creature stage "more realistic" because of the wandering hoppers that would roam around the planet. And I heard that this type of AI was never really removed, and still exists in things like rogues, migrating creatures, and epics. I feel like if we can just put that AI into like groups of creature that are just big enough to extinct/ally, then that would make the creature stage a whole lot more realistic.

I mean, then there comes the issue of eggs, and I have a few ideas for it. One is that you can simply remove them and have them spawn off-screen at a certain distance. Another idea is that they lay the egg on the ground and surround it until it hatches. A slight variation of this is that they hatch the egg on the ground and just leave it there, kind of like the the cell stage. The last one is kind of similar to the second one, you can have them set up a small temporary nest (You can use the animation from the migration scene) and have them guard the nest until the egg hatches.

I have more ideas for a more realistic creature stage but this is just really my first big one.

I like the idea. Leaving eggs behind would also allow for multiple packs to form--which would mean more would have to be killed to drive them to extinction, but heck, deer didn't go extinct when wolves killed a lot more than three of them, so it would probably present more realistic food resources for carnivores.

You could also use the early gameplay prototypes like GonzagoGL or SPUG as a reference for how the creature stage would play out with free-roaming creatures as those were developed for fleshing out and testing ideas for the creature stage during the development of the game.

Sorry for the late reply (and also for replying on another account because my old one is broken), but I think I did it.
!!!NoNests.package

To be honest, it was really easy. All I had to do was add "<bool name="HasNest">false</bool>" to a couple of .prop files.
I think I'm going to make this part of Solar Spore, by the way.

I hate to admit it but your mod is actually way more professional than the version I made a year ago viewtopic.php?t=6314
I just removed a lot of stuff in creature_nest0.prop.xml and the others to make them i guess invisible and not have any hit box while you figured out how to actually tell the game not to use them in the first place :lol: .
