    I remember as a tween spending months curating the perfect specimen in spore. Then grudgingly campaigned against the grox just to get to the center of a Tootsie pop. Only to now witness a true master at play lol.

      @Limulus polyphemus Speedrunning to the center is actually kinda easy. If you stay as a military species, your ship will have enhanced HP and energy. Just buy a few recharges and some repair kits and once you get access to like 2 of the upgrades for your travel distance, you can just click your way to the end. Doing it the intended way is the hardest part. You were meant to have several planets and several different types of spices generating income for the empire and you were supposed to do a bunch of other things, but why bother when you can just click to the end.

    Back in the early 2010s I was super into Spore and completed the game legitimately. I had to max out my stats and badges, but as a result I had a fleet large enough to take on the Grox and destroy their planets on the way to the center of the galaxy.
    Never got around to using the Staff of Life, I don't remember if that was a later edition or if I missed something about it.
    Wish they would give Spore a re-release.

      Elysian Eclipse.
      Also, take a look on "Thrive". It's an open source free game. Since it is developed by volunteer programmers for free, up to now it still only has the cell stage - but oh ho boy, what a cell stage it is. Give it a try, you wont regreat it, it brings the cell stage to a hole new level of evolution

      Look up eclisian eclipse. Not sure if I got the name right. But it’s on steam and it’s a game that aims to be “the spiritual successor to spore”. No where near done but it looks good thus far.

      @Anthony Ortiz
      Omatic? Well, consider it the "Cheat Engine" of the 1990's. Buy hey, it still works perfectly, and it's far easier to use.
      It's a cheat program, just download it from Google. Im... Im old. I used to use it for cheating very, very old games. You just put the value you wanna cheat, for example, Staff of Life (42), change the value, for example using 2 or 3 of it, type the new value some 3 times and voilá, you can type in the new value you want it to have. So, just set it to 99 (and click in a small buttom to lock it).
      By the time you get the Staff of Life, I dont even consider it cheating at all, since there's nothing really to do in the game anymore, so I just use it to fool around, seed tons of planets and upbring new space civs from Monoliths just for fun, and then I ally them and fund their new emperial expansions... At that stage I like to play the "Precursor race" of the galaxy.
      Give it a try!
      (Or you can also use Cheat Engine, your call. But Omatic is so much easier)

    The tribal stage was (to my own personal surprise) my favourite. As for the space phase, what I really wanted to do was become a race of esoteric genetic engineers. Unfortunately I encountered a bug in my game in which using the creature editor on a life-form in the space phase would, upon exiting the editor, cause the planet I was visiting to immediately explode. I mean, free planetary destruction for a civilisation archetype that lacks it, but my dozens of friends and allies would invariably declare war on me and my new and wonderful new life-forms would go extinct in their first minute of existence.

      The original creators have been working on a new game, without Maxis/EA this time. They're still working on the first phase though, so it'll take a while before it'll be finished. It's called 'Thrive', available in early access on Steam.

    I beat Spore once ages ago. I took the full military route. God was it painful. I got planet destroying weapon and auto guns that would shoot enemies attacking me while travelling. I went into every single Grox planet between me and the core and dropped the planet killer on them. It took ages and was not rewarding at all.

    You did well by giving yourself good wings and feet before tribe but missed some stuff. Basically your only goal before tribal stage is to get best feet and wings, random omnivore mouth, most charms possible and charge and spit. Should also attempt to befriend some strong species to get 3 apex party members, as they will become your pets in tribal.

  • TheOrangeGalen
    TheOrangeGalen Month ago +4

    Technically have beaten Spore before. Found a wormhole that took me pretty close to the core, but straight in the middle of Grox territory. Couldn’t do the 1 mission they offered me because I had to go through their territory and they started blasting. Eventually had to cut a swath through the Grox until I could make a mad dash to the center. So I just need to find Earth and kill the Grox.

    • AD Tillion
      AD Tillion 19 days ago +1

      @Paul-Stelian Olaru No, if you want to conquer them, you have to manually take over every single planet. Otherwise you have to keep doing alliance activities to keep them from falling back into hating you.
      However, if you do conquer their last remaining planet, they disappear from your entire game, so best to not save afterwards, or else your future games will not include any Grox quests.

    • Paul-Stelian Olaru
      Paul-Stelian Olaru 19 days ago

    • AD Tillion
      AD Tillion 19 days ago +2

      @Paul-Stelian Olaru It’s usually the planet closest to the centre. However, there’s nothing special about it in terms of diplomacy/conquest. Anything you do on any of their planets will work. Once you take the homeworld over, the next closest planet becomes the new one, just like with any other species.

      @Adrobiel I tried that and it turns out the planet it retains it ‘civ stage style’ cities which produce much less spice. Only when you find an empire already there and its the capital do they have more than 3 ‘space stage’ cities, and even they produce less spice.

    • Empress Davrox

    I always thought becoming allies with the Grox was impossible, they always seemed to completely ignore any attempts. Thank you for showing me the true path becoming a vengeful and truly malicious God.

      @Abe Buckingham Before I met them, I had done a ton just expanding and learning about the space stage. Fought some hostile empires, and I found an easy strategy to beat them. I can't recall too much, but I either used bombs or pulse cannon in a driveby on each city on a planet. Of course, it turned out even easier to do it to the Grox. However, the sheer amount of planets and their recolonizing power made it take a dedicated day or two just to going to each system to make sure they were wiped out. I did end up achieving it, and then the next time I allied up with them.

      @Eric Lamb yeah, that's what I and probably pretty much everyone did.

      @Curtis Alcock I forgot to mention, they can also give you an ally ship to help you fight, but they aren't particularly stronger than any other ship so not really. Actually, just jumping through their planets quickly is much easier than trying to befriend them, but it does mean having to grind for the strongest ship. You can also terraform a few of their planets and take them for yourself to give you refueling bases, but at that point you may as well just befriend them.

      The Grox will start to hate you more the moment you meet them so it's important to choose that moment for when you're ready to ally them. The easiest way to get them to like you is breaking the Galactic Code but it's not required. You can bribe them and do mission just be sure you're ready to start them the first time you encounter the Grox!

    Alas, Spiff, you haven't finished Spore until you also wipe the Grox from the galaxy. 😏

    I've allied the Grox, I've went to the center of the Galaxy by fighting them thooth and nail, I did it all.
    I once began the ultimate purge of the Grox. But they have thousands of planets, and I didnt have as much patience.
    Use the simple cheater O'matic to turn your 42 Staff of Life into permanent 99. After that, just simply Terraform every single one of the Grox worlds (they die instantly).
    But it's so boring to keep receiving distress signals from your worlds suffering ecological disasters or being attacked by the Grox (or others) when you are thousands of parsecs away.
    But anyway, I created a massive galactic empire spamming thousands of planets, and with hundreds of allied subject species - all of which I "enlightned" myself (using Monoliths, I never allied with anyone that I didnt upbring myself).
    I became the powerful precursor race of the galaxy, the seeder of life, terraforming every single floating rock around.
