Much has been afoot recently about a rumored parts pack named various variations on Cute and Creepy and the like. Many seem upset about an expansion that would be just a parts pack, but putting that aside for the moment, what sort of parts would you like to see? There are definitely some gaps in Spore, so what sort of physical parts would most excite you if they were included, even if you don't like the idea of a parts pack to begin with?

Personally, I would really like to see mammalian carnivore mouths. Bears, canines, felines, and mustelids I think would make a nice row. Although many of these eat various amounts of plant matter, they are all primarily meat eaters - plus they make up the family , after all, so they really would have to be carnivores, I think.

Filter feeding mouths would be cool too. Things like anteaters, aardvarks, armadillos, and baleen whales. The main issue with these is, of course, that they might require whole new mechanics to work... so perhaps for a more content heavy expansion.

Chameleon eyes would be neat, but I don't really know what other sorts of eyes would be added with them. The eyes as they are are kind of repetitive, with lots of similar choices.

Finally, they should have tentacle graspers. We can already basically make tentacles, even if they rarely move well, but there is no way to make a tentacle grasper right now. Just a few simple hands that are basically the ends of tentacles that could wrap around stuff would be all we would need. Like, maybe one that was the end of an octopus arm without suckers, one that is an octopus arm with suckers, one that was the end of a squid tentacle (the longer ones that end in diamond shaped graspers), and maybe something like a squid tentacle with a claw at the tip of the diamond.

Anyone else have any ideas for cool part additions?

One final reminder - if you hate part packs, don't bring it up here. There are plenty of other places to complain. This is for brain-storming new parts only.

Non-creature parts welcome, too, of course.

I want things like hoods for cobras and lizards. Something that lies flat most of the time, but sort of frills up when you get in a fight or something. Also, along those lines, add mouths with fangs and the ability to have a poisonous bite, instead of just spitting poison.

Also, more leg types and the ability to actually manipulate them in the vehicle editor.

Umm... maybe allow for floating creatures without using a glitch. Those glitch creatures move so weirdly... maybe allow something like methane sacks or a mild telekinesis to float.

The ability to make realistic snakes would be nice. Snakes don't move like inchworms, they sort of move in S shapes. Presently, that's not possible in the game.

Oh, I forgot to add MORE CLOTHING PARTS PLEASE KTHANXBYE

He already said take that to another thread. Please do so.

We already know they are making a part pack, it's pretty much confirmed at this point, but we are brainstorming on what could be in it. That's all.

Did you read any of the first post?


I'd like to see actual tenteculs, half of the mouths are bird mouths so more
insect mouths would be nice. Better eyes, I only like 4 of them. A "head" option
that lets you place a "Head" blob on a part of the body would be neat.

That'd be cool

I think there should be like a special human mouth in place of one of the ape ones that you can manipulate the skull, or just add the entire skeleton to manipulate like in the 2005 version where it showed the ribs.

I can only honestly think of 3 things that can't already be done that I find myself ever running into:

Fluff: Like, little placeable tufts to give the illusion of fur. Though a dev said they may be able to implement actual fur effects likeyou see in black and white in future based on stuff that was in the prototype.

Cleft lipped mouth: Basiclly a mouthpiece with a gap instead of a philtrum (sp) and blulbous upper lip; basiclly like you see in most felines, canines etc. It's near impossible to construct a working one out of parts that looks any good

Blob'o'flesh: Turning parts like noses inside out is great for building up facial structures, but the backs of them are flat textured; some kind of purpose-made "blob of flesh" which picked up the texturemapping would be nice.


But 3 parts do not make an expansion pack


like in the 2005 version where it showed the ribs.


Argh, people keep citing the ribs. The ribs were just a visual cue. The mouse wheel controls the same function as the ribs did in 2005, theres just no longer a rib graphic applied, instead it simply scales the meat.

I know the ribs were just visual, but I was just saying an example.(Also the ribs looked cool )
I mean like, you mouse over ams, it shows bones for easier manipulation and more advanced.

I think the head would work if it was like a human head, with a manipulative skull.

Dude, seriously, we already said we don't want that in this thread. This thread is just for brainstorming, okay? Put that other stuff somewhere else.
