    [1.01] Introduction
    This is my first "guide" but I have done walkthroughs and FAQ's for other 
    games on my independent site.
    Spore is a game that has been many years in the making. For a while it was 
    thought to be abandon-ware, like Duke Nukem Forever. Thankfully Will Wright has
    come through with a game that is interesting, and replayable.
    This game includes Securom 7.35. If you are concerned about Securom, or just
    want to know more go to http://www.reclaimyourgame.com
    [1.02] Versions
    0.1 - Guide first created. 
    0.2 - Guide expanded.
    0.3 - Tribal Stage information added
    0.4 - Damage and skill tables added
    [2.01] Creature Creator
    (This creator is different to the one in gameplay)
    The in game creature creator allows you to make creatures to share and enjoy
    in your game. These creatures will appear in your game as other species from
    the creature stage and beyond.
    The creator gives you a good feel for the kind of things you can make in your
    game and have all parts accessible immediately. Normally during a game certain 
    features will be *locked* meaning you have to either befriend or kill another 
    species before you can adopt that feature.
    [2.02] Vehicle Creators
    (This creator is the same in or out of gameplay)
    During the Civilization stage you will need to have transport, the first one 
    will need is the land vehicle, with water and air following. The type of 
    vehicle you will need depends on the city it will be used for. The three types 
    are Religious, Economic and Military.
    There are 3 stats to each vehicle: speed, health and ability. So a religious 
    city would have a vehicle with a religious ability, which could be used to 
    convert rival cities.
    Religious Ability: These are items like harps and loud speakers, used to 
    convert rival cities to your team. The higher the religious ability, the 
    quicker the conversion. Health is probably more important than speed, as you 
    can be attacked by the rival cities turrets and defence, and may also be 
    attacked by their vehicles if they are a military city. Religious vehicles can
    also convert spice mines.
    Economic Ability: These items show that your city is all about the Sporebucks 
    baby. Diamonds and bling will adorn your vehicle. Economic vehicles can open 
    up trade routes, leading to the eventual option to purchase the city. In the 
    mean time, trade routes help bring in more Sporebucks. When you use an Economic
    vehicle to set up a trade route, that vehicle will commute between the 2 cities
    continually. Economic vehicles can also bribe spice mines to convert.
    Military Ability: Guns, guns, guns. Firepower is the big key. You convert the
    cities around you with might. Your vehicles can also be used to repel other 
    military and religious attacks. Pretty straight forward.
    Building your vehicle: There are no parts to unlock in this creator, so you can
    use a vehicle that you downloaded online or created earlier. For air, land and
    sea the each of the 3 main body parts will have a rating, so pick your hull, 
    cabin and engine with the health and speed stats in mind. Once you find a 
    combination that you like, add you ability item (religious, economic or 
    military) slap some paint on and you are off.
    NOTE: The space stage craft has no stats. It doesn't matter what you put on 
    there, the actual health, speed and weapons come via upgrades. It can be a 
    plain cube and still be functional. (Borg, anyone?)
    [2.03] Building Creators
    (This creator is the same in or out of gameplay)
    Buildings are used in the Civilization and Space stages of the game. There are
    3 building types: Town Halls, Housing, Entertainment and Factories. For these 
    buildings to be functional they need to have at least 3 pieces. There is also 
    an upper complexity limit controlling how many parts you can have. You do not 
    need to add any of the type specific features to the buildings for them to be
    [2.04] In game - Cell Creator
    The cell creator is the first tool you come across when you are playing a game 
    of spore from the very start. You are a blob with some defining features. When 
    you first start out there will not be much to choose from; mainly just your 
    mouth type (herbivore or carnivore). For the Cell to be able to survive it 
    must have at least a mouth, eyes and movement (flagella to start with). As you 
    progress you with unlock more features. Call your mate to re-enter the cell 
    creator to upgrade your Cell. 
    For more info see the Cell Stage.
    [2.05] In game - Creature Creator
    The creature creator in the second stage of Spore is very familiar to the one 
    you access from outside of gameplay with one important difference: Not 
    everything is unlocked. You will only have access to improvements that you
    have earned and that are suitable for your creature. If you are a herbivore 
    after the first stage, you won't find Omnivore or Carnivore mouths here. Find
    your nest and your mate (the one with the hearts) to re-enter the creator.
    For more info see the Creature Stage.
    [3.0] Cell Stage
    [3.01] Welcome to the tidal pool.
    IMPORTANT: This game has no autosave feature! REMEMBER TO SAVE!
    While this stage seems quiet simple it will set you up for the rest of the 
    game. Here you start out in the tidal pool. First decide if you are going to 
    begin as a herbivore or a carnivore. This can be changed later during this 
    stage with a bit of effort.
    As you swim around the tidal pool, you earn DNA points by feeding on your 
    respective food. This also advances the game meter. Soon you will see that 
    some of the other cells have the golden shields which give you part upgrades. 
    The only way to unlock these upgrades is by killing them. Carnivores simply
    need to bite them 2 to 3 times.
    Herbivore hint: If you have started out as a herbivore, invest in a set of 
    spikes, if you have enough DNA points, grab 2. The only way you are going to
    get part upgrades are by killing the other cells. A pair of spikes near your 
    filter mouth work well, better if they are long. You can bump into the other 
    cells that have unlockables (shown by the mini gold shield in their name tags
    when you hover your mouse over them) and if you bump them 2 to 3 times, they 
    will pop and you will unlock the part. The second set is for your tail area,
    particularly if you don't have jets. You can be chased quite often and this 
    way they will hit your spikes instead of you. 
    Omnivore tips: If you want to be an omni, there are two ways to do this. Pick 
    a mouth to start with, and eat to build DNA points, but try to keep a tally of
    how many you have eaten. You can then either add the other type of mouth, 
    close to your existing mouth or aim to unlock the omni mouth: the proboscis. 
    This is a tricky mouth to find, it's a long needle like mouth and you really
    have to look for the cell to be able to find it. Then eat the opposite type 
    of food until you have eaten equal amounts. If you eat too much of one type,
    you will end up starting the creature stage as that type, missing out on 
    being an Omnivore.
    Further down the line you will unlock the poison and electric abilities. These
    tend to make it easier to kill other cells, and help you to be left alone by 
    predators. Spikes, poison and electric emitters all follow you to the next 
    stage. Poison and electric emitters will make you immune to all other poison
    or electric attacks, so they are a must if you have the dna points to spend.
    Eventually your cell with grow a brain and become sentient. Time to move to 
    the next stage. You will now have the opportunity to remove your fins and 
    add legs. All the legs have the same speed rating and are worth 50 DNA points
    in the next level.
    Enjoy the cutscene of your Creature making landfall!

    [4] Creature Stage
    [4.01] Overview
    IMPORTANT: What ever parts/features you have at the end of this stage is with
    you for the rest of the game. You do not physically evolve after completion of
    this level. Choose wisely!
    This stage is harder than the Cell Stage, but you have legs now, what did you
    You have a health and hunger meter to keep an eye on (health is green, hunger 
    is orange). If you are a herbivore, you will eat the fruit that is found on 
    the trees and shrubs. This is also shown on your mini map by the little apple 
    with a bite out of it. If you are a carnivore, you eat the other creatures, no
    free food there. Omnivores can eat either, but you must eat more to make up 
    for the choice.
    To earn DNA points you must complete the little mini-missions that pop up on 
    the upper left and corner. These will differ depending on what your Social 
    Stance is. Red is combative, green is friendly. Your actions will determine 
    your Consequence abilities. 
    Consequence abilities earned at this stage and how to get them:
    Predator - Kills most other creatures, makes them extinct.
    Social - You earn almost all your DNA points by making friends and allies.
    Adaptable - You have a fairly even split of allies and extinctions.
    Depending on what Consequences you earned in the last stage, you will have 
    one of the following abilities:
    Carnivore -> Raging Roar: Makes other creature run in fear for short amount 
    of time.
    Herbivore -> Siren Song: Makes other creatures enchanted, increases Social 
    Omnivore -> Summon Flock: Summon creatures to help you socialise or fight 
    for a limited time.
    Once you fill your progress bar, it will be time to build a tribe.
    [4.02] Befriending Others
    To befriend another creature either double click it or right click it while 
    your social stance is set on green. This will start the social interaction. 
    Your creature needs to mimic the other creature’s actions. There are 4 types of
    actions, with 5 levels each.
    Sing: This is the first action you can do. Singing level is determined by your 
    creature’s mouth. The better the mouth, the better your singing. This is a 
    fairly easy interaction to spot.
    Dance - Feet control your dance skill. Also an easy interaction to spot.
    Pose - Pose is controlled by your hands/graspers. If you don't have hands, your 
    not going to be able to pose. Graspers/hands can be put on to legs, but this
    essentially turns them into arms. You can run on all fours with graspers/hands
    on. Pose can look really similar to charm, but is more of a bow with arms out 
    depending on what your creature looks like) they do have slightly different 
    sounds to them though.
    Charm - Charm level is controlled by your details, the cute-ish little bits 
    that you can add on. Charm looks like a little spin around with a small 
    flourish (which is why it looks similar to pose). My creature did a bit
    of a spin with a wiggle and flap of its wings.
    For non-alpha creatures you normally get 3 interactions to fill the friendship
    bar. If you get one of them wrong, or your level in that action isn't high 
    enough, it won't fill. The other creature will only fill the bar to half way,
    you however, can go beyond that if your actions are impressive enough.
    Alpha creatures normally have the unlockable items. Befriending them is 
    normally 4 or 5 actions long and they are not as impressed by your actions
    as non-alphas or babies.
    A good trick is to have an ally creature in your pack. It can be one of your
    own species, which can be better once you have high level parts. If there are
    2 or 3 of you, it is much more impressive and easier to make friends.
    [4.03] Combat and Extinction
    Your other option is combat. When upgrading your parts you are looking for 
    high levels in bite, charge, spit and strike. Again these are available from
    level 1 to 5, depending on the level of your parts. If you have graspers, 
    you can throw things at the other creatures.
    Attacking a creature will lower your score with that entire species.
    Bite - Controlled by your mouth. Quick to recharge, but doesn't do as much 
    Charge - Controlled by weapons and feet. Will stun your enemies.
    Spit - Controlled by weapons. Excellent for long range attack.
    Strike - Controlled by weapons and hands/graspers. Will damage enemies around
             and behind the main target. Very slow to recharge, but best option
             when dealing with a whole tribe attacking.
    Again, killing Alpha Creatures will be harder, but will unlock parts for you.
    IMPORTANT: These combat abilities also come in handy in the Tribal phase. My
    creature would use the spitter on it's tail when fighting other tribes.

    Level 5 Strike -   9 damage - 2.3 area damage
    [4.04] Unlocking Upgrades
    There are 2 ways of unlocking upgrades, social/combat interactions and 
    searching bones. You will see piles of glowing bones scattered across the land,
    and normally around carnivore/omnivore nests. Clicking on these will give you 
    an unlock. The bigger the bones, the better the unlock in general. You will 
    not be able to get all the unlocks this way though, you will still need to 
    unlock via interacting with an Alpha.
    Unlocking via Creatures: As you go though this stage you will see the number 
    of Alpha creatures increase. You can tell how many there are by the number on
    the top left corner of their info panel when you hover over them. Aim to 
    interact with the Alphas first to ensure you get the most unlocks possible. 
    Sometimes you may not be able to find the 3rd Alpha as they are off wandering.
    Other stats not specifically for combat or social include:
    Jump - Allows you to jump up over terrain.
    Glide - Allows you to float above the terrain for a short time.
    Sneak - Allows you to sneak through dangerous areas or retreat from combat.
    Sprint - Allows you to run at high speed.  
    Health - Increases your hit points:
    Level 1 - +10 HP
    Level 2 - +15 HP
    Level 3 - +25 HP
    Level 4 - +40 HP
    Level 5 - +100 HP
    [4.05] Moving Nests
    Through out this stage your species will migrate to different nests. This 
    happens approximately every 2 times you enter creature creator. You must make
    a cross country trek to the new nest, frequently going past nests of creatures
    who don't like you and may attack, or going past epic creatures which attack 
    pretty much everything. Watch your hunger and health during this time.
    There is a dotted trail on the mini-map which gives you a path to follow, 
    and also a dark black trail on the landscape where your brethren have walked
    before you. Once you reach the new nest, clicking on it will claim it.
    [4.06] Parts List
    Note: The stats do not stack. Adding 2 pairs of Dance 5 feet will still only
          give you Dance 5.

    [4.07] Consequences
    Consquences earned from this level:
    Preditor -> Fire Bombs - Chieftain throws fire bombs at creatures and structures
    Social -> Fireworks - Chieftain creates fireworks that increase relationship 
                          with those nearby
    Adaptable -> Beastmaster - Chieftain can enchant nearby animals for a limited 
    [4.08] Strategy
    *If you finished the cell stage as a herbivore, use the Siren Song ability when
     trying to befriend a nest of angry creatures, it will stop them from attacking
    *If you get outnumbered in a fight, run to your nest. Often the attacking 
     creature will follow and your nest-mates will finish them off.
    *The game will give you one last chance to enter the Creature Creator before 
     you evolve to the tribal stage. **THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO EVOLVE** What
     ever parts you have at the end of this level is it!
    [5.0] Tribal Stage
    [5.1] Overview
    You have now advanced enough to have developed a tribe mentality. Your creature
    becomes chieftain of the tribe, and you start with 2 followers. Ability 
    upgrades in this level are via tribal clothing. You are also able to unlock
    crafting stations to kit out your tribe members. To advance through this level
    you must ally or destroy competing tribes as they appear. The hut and
    population upgrades come at first and 3rd tribal allies/destruction.
    The currency for this level is the food you gather. This is simple for all 
    types of creatures. I have had my herbivores gather fruit / tree materials and
    fish without it being an issue.
    You add new tribe members via your tribal hut. To increase your population cap 
    you need to have allied/destroyed some tribes.
    Don't forget to set your Social Stance again. It won't automatically keep the 
    same setting as the Creature Stage.
    [5.02] Befriending Tribes
    This will earn you the friendly consequence. The first tribe that appears will 
    be neutral to you, and easy to befriend. Make sure you have your chieftain and
    2x instrument players for the same instrument. Go over and either double click
    or right click on the other tribes chieftain to begin the social interaction.
    Click on the green instrument button when you see the matching thought bubble
    over the tribe members. If you don't have the instrument they want to see, 
    click on another one anyway, you will still get a small boost for it. It will
    normally take 4 to 5 "performances" of an instrument to fill the bar. The more
    players of that instrument you have, the bigger the relationship boost.
    Each successful fill of the relationship bar will take you up a friendship 
    point. It takes 2 completions of the performance interaction to take a neutral
    tribe to ally.
    If the tribe dislikes you, that is if the face is orange or red, you will need
    to give them a food gift before you can perform for them. A food gift will 
    normally make them neutral, you may have to gift twice if they are really 
    angry with you. 
    Also the fireworks ability will normally raise them up, but will not make them
    Ally tribes will bring you gift baskets from time to time as well.
    [5.03] Attacking Tribes
    To get either the agressive or industrious consequence you will need to attack
    a number of tribes. Attacking is simple, outfit your tribe members with a 
    weapon and take your chieftain and go raid the offending tribe. You can also
    steal from another tribes food stash. 
    Fire sticks are not an effective weapon against individual tribe members, 
    but they are good against huts.
    Make sure that you take out the main hut as soon as you can, as it will stop
    them from creating new tribe members to attack you with. 
    If your creature had an weapon from the previous stage - such as a spitter - 
    they will use this as well as the hand held weapon to attack other tribes,
    giving you a little evolutionary boost to your quest for domination.
    [5.04] Upgrades
    In tribal stage, you earn upgrades by making allies or destroying competing 
    tribes. The food you gather turns into the currency used to by new tribal
    clothing or crafting structures. Once unlocked, the amount of food you have 
    gathered influences how much you can spend on your clothes and huts.
    [5.05] Clothing List
    You can have more than one of a item type on at the same time, but the best
    stat will be the one that counts. Level 5 is the highest in all stats.

    [5.08] Strategy
    *Fire sticks are great to destroy huts, but are not so good against actual
     tribe members. Use spears or stone axes for this.
    *The more instrument players you have, the bigger the boost to the relationship
     bar. Aim for at least 5; 2x maraca, 2x didgeridoo, 1x wind.
    *Wild animals will steal your food, keep someone at the tribal base at all times
     for protection.
    *Domesticating other creatures will give you a food source. You can keep up to
     3, only one of each species. You can then get a gatherer to "harvest" your
    *When you start out, you will be alone. The first tribe that pops up will 
     be an "easy" tribe to befriend or attack. This will give you your first set of
     upgrades. After that other tribes will begin to appear quite quickly.
