Okay, so I was playing in Spore which I just got for my birthday just this last August 31st, and I noticed that there were creatures with extended tails and more than one neck. I noticed, when I brought the said creatures into the creature creator, that the tails and even extra necks was another peice sorta like the limbs peices except it had more spheres in it and you coud make it curve. Nowhere have I discovered where this is actually located and I noticed both creatures were only made with Spore, no expansion packs.

Can anyone help me to figure out how to do this? Here's some pics of two creatures I noticed this on:

Extended tail: (Also, on this one, in addition to knowing what that extended tail piece is, I would like to know how to make it seamless like it is on this creature. When I detached the tail in editor and then tried to reattach it it never reattached quite the same.

Extra neck:

Also, as you all would know, neither of these are my creatures nor do I claim them to be.

Use limbs.

That doesn't work. They don't have near enough spheres or "joints" plus, I can't make those curve. They like to go in straight lines between the spheres/joints. Believe me, I tried.

Isn't it obvious?
You have to shrink the spheres.
Then, make another limb, while holding CONTROL, drag it onto the previous one, shrink to size, repeat.

Hmm no, it doesn't work, I can't add a limb to the end of another limb. Also, on the sunlung, the extended tail is all one piece, at least, when I play with it, that's how the tail comes off and it has a large number of spheres in it. Also, as I've said, with the limbs, you can't make it curve, it only makes a straight piece between each sphere. =s

Well then use many spheres to create a perfect tail.

How? The limb pieces only have 3-4 spheres. =x

Again. How? This is why I am asking how to do this because I don't know. Either way, the limbs still only put a straight piece between spheres so it won't help if it won't curve between them. Also, on the sun Lung, the extended tail is all one piece, believe me, I tried tearing it apart, it only comes off at the base of the tail. =s

How about you look in the built in manual in your game. And by curves, do you mean asymmetry.

Ok:
Step 1:Mouse over a part of the limb between two spheres.
Step 2:Hit "alt" on your keyboard.
Step 3:While holding CONTROL OR "ctrl", drag the copied limb price to the end of the limb until it clicks in.
Step 4:Repeat

I have, it doesn't seem to cover this. Also, perhaps you should download the creature and see what I mean. I'm so confused. I know it's not a limb piece since the tail is all one length and with limbs, they are bigger or smaller depending on where muscles go and no matter of resizing changes that. It's so perplexing. o.O

I can do that but it doesn't change the size issue stated above, nor the problem with the pieces being straight between joints. =x
