Giant Bomb Content Sharing

#1 Edited by iMiles (42 posts) -

So, all us sporites know that the game will have a user content subscribe feature, so that you can populate your universe with other user's creations. How about we have a GiantBomb content sharing... THANG?

Basically, once the game is released, post your usernames here and we'll subscribe to your content. If it's good. If it's not, we'll shun you. Don't take it personally.

Think of this as a pre-emptive community creation.

Anyone interested?

I'm interested, because I'm a manly man.

I should be called Jecrell on the Spore community site. I had the HP version of the Creature Creator so I had like 50% of the creature parts when building some of my creatures.

I like the sound of that but who will make the little bomb people first?

Testing
See if this PNG I uploaded works in the Sporepedia maybe.
#10 Posted by iMiles (42 posts) -

I'm iMiles08. Spent the day fretting because they fucked up the GE activation codes.

#11 Posted by Moridin (714 posts) -

My Spore account is Moridin9.

I didn't feel like spending the 10 dollars on the creature creator, but I've been mucking around with the free trial for a day or so.

I plan on deleting everything I currently have so I can start fresh with all the parts. Tomorrow I plan on installing and starting fresh with a new cell, playing for a bit, and then going into the creator and making a bunch of stuff to share out. I really dig the community aspect of this game, and while I may not be the best creator, I think some of the stuff I've made in the trial is pretty neat.

My username is bradx0r if anyone wants to add me as a friend. (That's a zero.) I'm in the tribal stage right now. Just domesticated one of Kevin Van Ord's creatures!

This game is neat.

#13 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

Certainly is! I'm keeping TomasBa by the way, add if you wish.

#14 Posted by GiantGUS (399 posts) -

I tried to add Brad, but it didn't find him :( nor did it find Moridin.

my spore name is GUSLanzetta, I am already exploring space.

#15 Posted by VoidPresence (53 posts) -

also tried to add Brad, but it couldn't find him, guess we have to wait for him to upload some of his creations?

#16 Posted by CarpetRemnant (375 posts) -

My name is Leakster, feel free to add me.

I made a yellow penguin man :)

#17 Edited by Moridin (714 posts) -

I don't think the search tool finds folks that haven't created anything yet. I got rid of all my 50% Creature Creator things tonight, so it should show me again tomorrow morning after I make some stuff. Also, make sure you hit the "share (or whatever it says)" button after you make a creation.

I'll go through and add folks tomorrow when I get back with the game.

#18 Edited by iMiles (42 posts) -

Seems to be minor issues actually adding people. Tried to add 3 of you last night and only got through to voidpresence. Though, as Moridin says, probably down to creations.

Also, seeing as I had to start my game offline due to EA screw ups (see the tech forum if you're lucky enough to not have issues) it looks like I'm still stuck with Maxis creations.

At any rate, give it a week or so and this game will probably reach it's potential. I only just realised on like, my fourth colony, that you didn't have to keep redesigning houses. Idiot moment.

We should checkout a GiantBomb sporecast.

Good idea, that will be dope to have a GiantBomb subscriber spore thing.

#20 Posted by iMiles (42 posts) -
Liking your buildings SuperMooseman XD ...inventive?

Can't add Moridin9, Leakster, Brad and TomasBa.
#21 Edited by krazychris (210 posts) -

I'm called krazuchris (mispelled my username :( ) I've got a few things up and if no one has made a giantbomb sporecast I'll go do it the now.

Edit: It seems that making the sporecast isn't as easy as just naming it and joining up. I acually had to manually add creature which would be annoying if I was to get everyones creatures and other creations on. I thought once you signed up all your stuff went upautomatically. Add me as a friend anyway. I plan on adding everyone here

I'd wait until we have more users and more unique content. No point just haphazardly throwing one together.

coakroach be me name
feel free to browse whatever I manage to spin up
;)

#24 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

Yeah I am having trouble adding people. There has been server trouble so I will wait a bit.

#25 Edited by Moridin (714 posts) -

As said before, my username is Moridin9. I guess the first thing I'll do is whip something up and share it so you all can find me when you search to add me. I'll add everyone I can, as well.

All right, started adding buddies and was unable to add Brad, TomasBa, Leakster and krazuchris. Got the rest of you added, I do believe.

Now... to create!

Edit: Hurray, got my Plodstomper up there. You should all be able to add me now.

#26 Posted by VoidPresence (53 posts) -

still don't have it quite yet.. (T-minus 73 minutes!!), but i've had a Spore account for a couple of months and i have a dozen or so creatures up already from the Creature Creator (full) shareable, so again, my Spore account is VoidPresence


#27 Posted by CarpetRemnant (375 posts) -

darn, I dunno why that is, I'm having trouble adding people. I managed to add voidpresence, GUSLanzetta, SuperMooseman and Moridin9.

GUSLanzetta made some angry little blue men that killed my duck :(

#28 Posted by VoidPresence (53 posts) -

i think its because people have to specifically upload a creation to the Sporepedia webpage (not just enable sharing)..in other words, have creations up at the website, for people to be able to go see it and thus 'add as buddy';
if they have no creation(s) on the site, there's no way for us to search via name.  So for those who have not been added yet, upload some stuff already so that you're 'seekable' (if you wish to be of course).

on a side note, once everyone's been playing for some time, lets keep some threads for mentioning notable landmark encounters with other GiantBombers' species  :)

#29 Posted by iMiles (42 posts) -

Still can't add the aforementioned. OOOOODDDDDDDDDD.

Thanks, Bloid was my first in-game creation, I miss him.

Wel, I did not make him angry... MAYBE YOU DID!

I went up to him and did a funny dance and he bit me.

#32 Posted by iMiles (42 posts) -

Has anyone come into empires with Stephen Hawking voices? I actually couldn't stop laughing. Nothing will ever be as funny as a talking shoe with a Stephen Hawking voice.

Well, who are YOU to judge the funnyness of YOUR dance? Also, he could just be laughing and you got too close.
#34 Posted by Moridin (714 posts) -

Think I've got everyone added now, Brad and the others I was having trouble with finally showed up.

#35 Posted by CarpetRemnant (375 posts) -

Yeah I managed to add all the people I was having trouble with. People also seem to be able to add me now, enjoy my sheep-ship and my frog astronaut :)

#37 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

I'm still getting all of my creations online. not all are linked to my account. Having trouble linking with some of you guys too.

#38 Edited by Kyle (2323 posts) -

screen name - 19letterslong

got to the space stage last night.

i dont have very much and almost half of my creatures are just iterations on my original creature. I really like the way it looks, but the only bad thing is that it's name is "teh shiz" cause i made it with the intention of deleting it haha. but i didn't. oh well.

#39 Posted by Driadon (2998 posts) -

Username is the same one I use for (more or less) everything: Driadon.
Gotten to space stage about 3 times now, but have yet to really dig into it a whole lot.

thanks  :D, the Elde Draconi is mine  :D

i hope it comes over as an Epic in someone's game as it would be very keen to see that thing large  :D

#41 Posted by Moridin (714 posts) -

I had an epic MOOSE! from Mooseman the other day. It came out of nowhere and freaked me out. Haha.

#42 Posted by Kyle (2323 posts) -

Hahaha I'm thinking there must be some kind of bias the game has towards content you've looked at in the sporepedia. I was just looking at Leakster's Sheep UFO thinking it look really cool, then I jumped back into my game. Not a minute later, the very first alien race i encoutner in space - four sheep ships trying to kill me. Not so cool anymore!! haha.

My mooseman is awesome. I've added you all atm. I'm probably gonna do another run through and see what comes up and maybe post a shot or two.
