We have taken 20 screenshots from the latest Galactic Adventure’s Video and compile a fact file from what we saw during it. We also go back to some of the old videos and have a look through them to see what we missed, here is a summary of this post.
There are many quirky things that we found, and also the discovery of over 400 maxis made objects. We have a closer look at how adventures are layed out, and we show that complexity will not be an issue for you when you create your adventures. We also screenshot some new tools, including sword fighting, rocket launchers and more. Also from what we have seen it is possible to interact with objects, and you can give missions to retrieve or destroy them.
So here is the first image. What we can tell from this are 2 different things:
1: We now know that we can teleport down to a planet and what it looks like.
2: Buildings/Vehicles can be submerged into the ground, just look at that vehicle in the top left of the screenshot.
Well here is another screenshot. As we can see the main creature has a jetpack, but also has some sort of head gear and some type of weapons coming out of its hands.
We also see many creatures of the same type which all have Galactic Adventure parts (including some special eye gear) which means it is not just the heroes which can have the new equipment.
Well this is an example of 2 different types of scaling. We can see the large (well, massive) epic creature, and if you look hard enough you’ll see a small creature at its foot. Also the buildings seem to have better textures then in normal Spore and can be made much bigger.
Also is it just me or is that cape new…. (plus those jet like things on the creature’s back?)
A very nice scenery picture, this shows of some of the new Maxis created flora.
There have been many questions over how complex a mission can be, but by just looking at this picture it is clear that there is a huge amount of stuff you can place in each adventure.
And not only that but this screenshot shows that it is possible to “paint” paths and hopefully textures onto a planet.
So here is the sporepedia screen for Galactic Adventures. Here are some observations:
- Ratings picture (yellow face)
- Amount of plays, probably how many people have played that adventure
- A “?”, this could indicate what you have played or not
There are also some filters, however it seems maxis have not fleshed out the icons yet.
First of all… Rockets… And they look good. Here are some other observations:
- The mini map is much more like a FPS/RTS which gives us hope that we may be able to create massive battles and have alot of strategy.
- Abilities: Seems there will be 12 abilities: 4 social, 4 aggressive and 4 passive ones.
- Multiple objective missions, from here it looks like you need to talk to “Davian Captain” and/or destroy the house keepers.
- 5 acts, and each with more then 1 mission.
- Easy video camera/screenshot buttons
Just another battle scene with another type of weapon, and once again with huge epics!
First we realize that their are “objects” for example the barrels, and if we look at the “mission area” it tells you to destroy a Giant Reactor, so it looks like objects are interact-able. Another thing i have noticed is that you can split your acts into certain parts, which we have seen it split into 3 parts so far.
Another Battle scene screenshot.
Some more effects (green one on the left), also you can see that there are corpses lying around.
Well it looks like it is possible to create sophisticated castles, and not only that but it looks like there are doors for the walls to.
Ninjas??? This is better viewed using the video but it looks like a sword fight. And there are also a lot of different types of objects in the background to.
Another look at the beaming down the your creature to a planet.
Maori Statues? Campfires? The objects get more and more interesting. Also in this picture you have one of the companions you can get.
This really made me want to get the game. It looks really good with multiple ground textures and the scenery looks stunning.
It is unclear what this is, however it looks really like the effect from Creepy and Cute.
Getting stomped by a monster? And an evil looking one at that? We like it
Well that is all from that video here are some highlights from the other older videos, and some of this you may have missed.
Here is the Adventures Creator. Some things I’ve noticed:
- Only seems to be 10 creatures, not sure why this is. (I have been informed by Gaming Steve that in fact you can have more, it just adds arrows)
- Item categories, including objects and music
- Posse member additions
So the other side of the Adventure editor, the planet creator, here you can make your planets however you want, add flora, change colours and change the weather. Observations:
- Lots of different types of tools, my favourite being “roads”
- 2 paint options?
- Flora area to put plants in
- Weather area where you can change the weather and where the sun is.
Well here are some of the 455 objects which Maxis have made. Some interesting ones include the stonehenge and the chests.
And that is all for now, I’ll post some more up later but I’m out of time.
