Cute and Creepy sounds like not as good as I'd hoped it would be but far better than people feared. All in all, I'd say it is worth the money, and will definitely purchase it.

The expansion for Spring sounds very interesting as well. I'm disapointed that it's space only - while the space stage is the main meat of the game, I'd much rather earlier stages get fleshed out into full fledged games than the one stage that actually can stand on its own get better. But eh, still good. I'll probably get it, although will obviously wait for more specific details.

Hopefully the Flora editor will either be released as a free download or come in either the part pack or expansion - I'm quite distressed it hasn't yet be mentioned, as I'm getting progressively more and more sick of Maxis plants.

Thanks for the info!

Now where are the "over 100 new parts" they mentioned in the press release? Are they counting backgrounds and animations as "parts"? Or is EA completely full of Spoor at this point?


72 body parts plus 36 new ways of painting = 108 substantive "parts".

I'd consider ways of painting a creature a part, and so does apparently EA.

provides more than 100 new creature-building components


so yes: includes not only parts

Edit: this added info comes from the official German site

Das SPORE Süß & Schrecklich Ergänzungs-Pack beinhaltet mehr als 100 neue Komponenten, um deine Kreatur zu erstellen sowie Animationen zwei Stilrichtungen: knuffig/Cartoon und gruselig/Monster. Ähnlich wie in der Sims 2 Accessoires Pack-Serie soll das Teile-Pack kreativen Usern, die ihre Kreaturen weiter anpassen und die gruseligsten Monster oder knuffigsten Viecher überhaupt erschaffen möchten, neue Inhalte bieten.

Die neuen Körperteile können ab der Kreaturenphase verwendet werden. Das Resultat kann in die Sporepädie hochgeladen werden und anderen Spielern zur Verfügung gestellt werden, die das Ergänzungs-Pack installiert haben. SPORE Süß & Schrecklich Ergänzungs-Pack kann ent-weder auf dem Spore Labor oder auf dem Hauptspiel installiert werden.

Im Ergänzungs-Pack enthalten:

* 72 neue Körperteile - 12 pro Palette (Mund, Augen, Fühler, Füße, Körper & Details)
* 2 neue Hintergründe für das Spore Labor - 1 x gruselig & 1 x knuffig
* 36 neue Scripts (12 Grundierungen, 12 Oberflächen & 12 Details)
* 12 neue Bemalen-Motive
* 24 neue Testlauf-Animationen - 12 x gruselig & 12 knuffig

That is so totally the opposite of worth it.

12 new body parts per pallet? 12 new paint jobs? The rest is chaff; what do I need new backgrounds or test animations for? They don't add to gameplay.

Come to think of it, neither will these new parts; there's nothing in here about adding abilities, or giving certain part types abilities that only other part types had until now (like giving mouths the Spit ability). And since function most emphatically does NOT follow form in Cute Spore...

This isn't worth $20; it's barely worth $5. Don't be taken in by this garbage; it sounds impressive, but what are you really getting?

The problem is that Spore has become a coloring book instead of a chemistry set

Heh...that's what I said, only much more succinct and brief.

RocketGirl, for the target audience of Spore, people who want to create their own creature and tell their own story, this is indeed quite valuable. It lets you create whole new creatures that look far closer to what you envisioned. Anybody who spends any time at all on the Creator Corner boards should probably be drooling at the prospect.

Sometime you are just going to have to face that Spore isn't for you, and hasn't been for a long time, and your complaints aren't going to be heard because they aren't trying to please you. You certainly are free to continue voicing them, but you'd probably have more fun playing Masters of Orion 2 or the like.

Purely specuation on my part. But it looks like they were going to release a parts pack but pulled it back to address some of our issues before going forward.

I'm excited.

I'm happy it isn't just a parts pack and nothing more.

Making missions sounds pretty cool
