The main problem is the loss of any companions in creature phase, which can take time to regain; especially if you're taking other species with you.

According to the post below, the servers were taken down for maintenance a few weeks ago. http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/83392.page It seems as though they are still performing maintenance.

In all my playthroughs, I've never found a penalty to dying in the early stages. However, I am emotional attached to a creature, so don't often die. There are in-game awards/achievements, so it could be possible there is one for a certain number of deaths or playing through the game with no deaths, but I have never gotten one nor am very into these awards, ...

No. The Creature Creator was released as a quasi-demo shortly before the actual game. Even though it is something you have to pay for, it was released with the intention of users buying it to play with while they waited for the final game - with most stores offering rebates on the purchase price of this "demo". While it contains many of the options for body ...

At the creature stage (on land) I'm afraid adding duplicate parts doesn't help you out. Essentially your skill level (charm, melee, etc.) is determined by the part with the highest level (for that skill). I've experimented with this a fair bit, and does appear to be only be available for aesthetic reasons.

The way to check your history before evolving is to hit the t button. This brings up the species history. Once you are done looking, hit the t button again. This is the only way not to be locked in to evolving. However, if you like the current arrangement, you can go ahead and evolve.

There are only two death based achievements in spore, and only one of them is in the creature stage: General Custer: Lead 30 posse members to their deaths. The other is part of the tribal stage: Watchful Parent: Complete the tribal stage without the death of a tribe member Other than those, death is pretty meaningless. You get a mark on ...

You can both ally with them, or utterly defeat them. Allying with the Grox is not taken lightly in the Galactic Community, and will result in upsetting all spacefaring nations. To be able to utterly defeat them, you will need an official mod/patch (use save-as) and have gained secret at the center of the universe. Also, This will take some time, as they ...

This glitch may sometimes be fixed by saving and exiting to the main menu, then re-entering the game. The symbol may also just disappear with time, so it effectively seems to mean "you tried to capture this system somewhat recently", rather than "you are trying to capture this system right now". The above quote is from the Spore Wiki.

T0 planets have various hazards depending on their climate - rock/fire/ice/water geysers, storms and meteor showers make an appearance. In your particular circumstance, I think the storms are to blame, since they only manifest on high atmosphere planets.

No. Spore only plays when you play it.

If you don't already have an Origin account, go to http://www.ea.com/ to make one. This will let you request help from the EA staff. Next, go to http://help.ea.com/. Click on the "Help with a Game" button. Search for Spore, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Contact Us". Click your platform, click next and pick Billing/Purchasing from the ...

There are 4 achievements related to you (or your allies) dying, and Raven Dreamer said 2 of them. He forgot to mention Survivor: Finish the Creature Stage without dying. as well as Can't Win for Losing: Die at least once in every stage in spore. :)

Hey all! Thank you for your efforts! I searched around other websites and found a soltion 2 my problem! It appears that after being uninstalled, Spore lives a "Preferences"-folder behind which can't be spotted by App uninstall apps such as "AppDelete" which i used to uninstall Spore. After deleting that folder, the game gave me a chance to try my luck ...

There is nothing preventing you from saving, evolving to the next phase, and, if you got a dissatisfaction result, reload your save game.

Their personalities is the main factor in deciding who they war with. An empire that starts off distrusting you (the -30 for 'we don't like strangers') will be much more likely to be at war with other empires. Now this is just a theory, I don't know of any way to confirm it. You also cant stop warring empires from going at it, even if they are a part of ...

whenever you are near the surface of a T0 planet, you will take damage, you dont need to be near a geyser.

Planets with a lot of atmosphere have lightning storms. The damage you get is probably from these.

Won't they still be able to take over the rest of their planets? Yes. Would I basically lose work in one file while I progress in another? Only if, while playing the other file, something happens to undo progress in the other. If you don't directly attack your existing save file empires, and they never get into any trouble of their own accord, they'...

You'll notice that the little yellow indicator is way on the left side; that means it's too cold to build any more cities. You'll need to find some terraforming tools to raise the temperature. If you can buy some Volcanoes or Asteroid Call items, you can use them to increase the temperature, while raising and lowering the atmosphere at the same time. ...

They give you extra supplies and resources and like you said you can have them attack people. You might be able to request assistance from them also if you are attacked, its been a while since I played that. Very sure you get resources though.

In addition to the save files in ...\AppData\Roaming\SPORE, you also have to copy the files from the "My Spore Creations" folder from your documents folder. In Windows, that's most likely at C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\My Spore Creations.

If the game is crashing the network, it is possible that the drivers are out of date OR the software used in the game is conflicting with his native drivers and causing a crash. My PC crashes a certain program whenever I plug my headphones in, as an example. Things to try would include: Updating drivers for the networking device = check the manufacturers ...

Well taken from SPORE wiki The Happiness Booster keeps colonists happy and can prevent an uprising As for Loyalty Booster. This tool prevents colony planets with unhappy cities from striking, allowing you to max out a planet's spice-mining efficiency. So in conclusion both high Happiness and Loyalty doesn't let your colonies to start riot and uprising ...

There are too many combinations to explain but I can touch a few. Multiple movement parts increase speed, each one giving reducing benefit Multiple mouths give more surface area to attack from. Also, if you have carnivorous mouth at the front and herbivore at the side, then you are effectively an omnivore. and so on. But this is just early on in the ...

There can be a downside for dieing in creature stage--- it can trigger a migration event. A migration can range from a minor inconvenience for a herbie or omni, to a significant hazard to continuing the game for a carnie. Carnies can only get food from dead creatures, and if you died and lost all your pack mates at the same time, you may not have sufficent ...

The colour of your tribe/country/empire is mainly based on your creature's Coat colour (second layer). I do not believe it will change if you alter your creature afterwards, but at least you can control it before you enter the Tribal stage.

Exploring creates the AI empires. Being near an AI empire causes them to be active. AI empires that are far enough away from you will go dormant until you get close to their territory again. In Spore, I find it fairly easy to just outrun non-Grox enemy empires--- as long as I don't have any ally empires. Allies drag you into all sorts of trouble, like ...

I am making peace with the Grox right now. I am a Zealot, so it is easier for me, but Planet Busters also break the Galactic Code. Break the Galactic Code, do missions, and gifts will just barely allow you to reach the blue face level. It is faster if you have the greeting super power that gives an initial +10. After blue face, I am making trade routes. This ...
