Spore is a lovely game, what, you don't like my creature? No need to diss the poor thing, it was made that way, by me. I think you hurt its feelings

Reasons people don't watch Star Trek:
60% - It’s for nerds.
39% - The show’s stupid.
01% - My parents were killed by Klingons and it's still too painful.

Certainly, and in the process I've also reinforced Jim's point about Spore

Your critter is quite lovely, one of the best I've seen. If only everyone showed such restraint in building Spore creatures.
I made the mistake of following some of the links on the news sites, and now my dreams will be haunted by X-rated demons. Now Will Wright will be known as the guy who made such things possible.

I'm sure that 99% of the reason for the creature editor coming out a couple months early is to weed out all the lowest common denominator crap and probably beef up a content filtering system to prevent idiots from spoiling the full launch with this kind of junk...
I don't watch commercials.

I like your critter made with Spore and would love to design my own, but my older Mac (OS 10.2.8) won't support it.
I did design an alien named Flit in Strata 3D, if you're curious to see it go my link below, then click on page 2 and enlarge the thumbnails.

Spore is not shipped as a Universal Binary, rather it's an Intel-only Mac application. I believe the developer just took their Windows application CD and "wrapped it in CIDER" so it looks like a Mac app. Expect a lot more Mac games via that route.

I see you like to model things that fly. Flit is charming. And your Space Shuttle render is amazing. You have a gift and expect you'd do well in the computer gaming industry

Jim - With all the work you have put into the 'mechanics' of MA3 will this in turn help when you tackle the freshwater aquarium again?

A marine aquarium, freshwater aquarium, reptile aquarium, bird "aquarium", butterfly aquarium - Jim, you'll need two or three lifetimes for this.
How about throwing in a duck tank?
