*oh my where did all the different native alien species go... They must have just disappeared. No warcrimes detected at all!*

They've got to Bottons
Using a monolith on a T3 planet rather than colonizing it then using the zealotry ability on the resulting civilization can allow any planet you want to have a spice cap of 100. Purple, blue etc.
This video is the perfect embodiment of the phrase: ''You can’t truly call yourself “peaceful” unless you’re capable of great violence, if you’re not capable of violence you’re not peaceful, you’re harmless"
Andrew Tate said this too 🍒🍒
@Diver Down 144p-th 👍
@Asher Will. Barlage 111 👍
Yeah, lay off the Jordan Peterson vids bud.
The consumer of tea is unironically the coolest looking space ship i've seen in a spore video
Looks like a Reaper
@bpotato pataton nobody said he created it.
But he didn't create that ship, he took It from the sporopedia 👁️👄👁️
@Big 9 Thanks for mentioning Terashd I love watching his videos
It looks.... Vorlon, which terrifies me even more.
Can’t believe that it turns from a survival game to a space management game like stellaris.
@Frocco Thank EA for that, they killed Maxis, the production company that made Spore. They're not sorry and they'll do it again
@jam no i think he was doing a whataboutism. Like, you cant call this game bad because another bad game exists. Which is still wrong, but not comparing the two.
@BurningFyre did he just compare this game to battlefront 😭I been laughing for 20 minutes straight
@Stettafire yeah ill get right on that
@Bophades Modern warfare hardly counts. Awful corporate garbage
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.
I played this sooooooo much as a kid and I still have never gotten to the center of the galaxy without cheats
Use Omatic to set your "Staff of Life" permanently at 99, allowing you to instantly terraform all planets in the galaxy forever
@Springtrap’s Grin Enough to write a lil peep song.
How many licks did it take??
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.
Just like qu from all tomorrows
So glad I’m not the only one who loves the tribal stage. That and the civilization stage have always been my favorites, but I feel like everyone seems to hate them for some reason
Your creature was really good at penetrating enemy defenses. Even the most un-impregnable fortresses couldn't hold up to the true power of your creature.
@Ernesto Motta twgw)888ai
@B JAD I illviviiiivliviiviiii
@Ernesto Motta sometimes the best spots is right from the underside
There is always an easy spot to exploit
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.
@Joshua Spath 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
@Joshua Spath I'll look it up thanks, there's also a smaller game called adapt by slug disco (small indie studio) which is basically a newer version of the game
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)
@UtubefukU What is Omatic?
This man is single-handedly keeping the stock images industry alive.
Him and "I Go By A Lot Of Names" are doing god's work
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.
Honestly surprised you didn't start a campaign of climate warfare, terraforming Grox planets to destroy their colonies then claiming them for your own.
As a Fellow Tea Drinker I can confirm both Grimsby and Skegness are "biological Deadends". Had me howling.
Honestly it’s so true though 😂
Yeah, once you evolve Buttlins, it's all over.
@Billy Pollit Rotherham aswell
This game was just amazing. It was soo fun. The DLC was fun too. Too bad they don't remake this game. With a new plot etc. I'd love to play...
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.
@Ezekiel'sHorizon for space adventures
Wait what would charm do
9:30 seems like it's even teabagging the enemies. It's the power of tea.
"You are, consequentially, evolutionarilly going to die"That line was raw.
Him: you guys probably hate the tribal partMe in my mind: the 2nd stage and the tribal stage are my 2 fav stages
This game is actually so good! Definitely deserves a part or remake!
@czudntknw Awesome to hear that! Will check it out!
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 didn’t even know this game had other stages I always just go full aggressive the whole time
I want to point out something VERY funny Spiff glossed over: Allying with the Grox causes _every other empire in the entire galaxy_ to declare war on you, even the empires you haven't met.
@New Guy I think that may be a glitch, the wiki says the Grox should never attack you if you somehow manage to ally with them
@Osama Mahmmod apparently the Grox aren’t supposed to attack you if you ally with them according to the Spore wiki, so maybe it was a glitch
@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.
@AD Tillion Ah so you don't just gain their entire empire like what I understand of the other ones from this video?
@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.
Honestly when i played spore i thought the first 4 stages were my favorite and the space stage was annoying just because there was too much going on. I dont want to have to save planets from ecosystem destruction shits annoying
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.
Congrats Spiff, you have literally manifested an entire civilisation into the meme of "I am going to defeat you with the power of friendship and this gun I found."
@DataDemon Gaming or the "bomb" part of "friendship bomb"
That gun being the Grox lmao
This is absolutely terrifying and hilarious.
Angry alien: "You broke the convention!"Spiff: "Do you have any idea how little that narrows it down"
Wtf is this thread
@Zedix Remove what is between the commas and the sentence is still a grammatically correct sentence that conveys the same general, yet slightly less detailed, information. The parenthetical comma.
@Richard Brooks Shnee I believe you have made a small grammatical error in your comment - the comma should be behind 'that' rather than in front of it.Thank you for understanding. Have a joyful day.
Spiff: "Is it a crime if no one told me it was? And why is it really all that wrong? Let me just test it on you, and then you can tell me how you feel about it afterwards. You're perfectly fine with it? Great! A gift of tea? For me? Oh how kind."
@MawDaws your mom
every time i watch one of your videos i feel like i’m in a stanley parable simulation. thank you for the content.
I remember playing this 7 years ago, this brand back so many memories
I feel like every spore video I have watched has a British narrator witch makes it 1000 times better
This is of the first pc games i played like 18-19 years ago still love it wish they wold make a new one
I spent weeks trying to defeat the groxs completely to realize that you had to download a mod to be able to get to one of the star systems it was unreachable so I never completely killed them off but I almost did
Heya, I don't know if this is true, but I somewhat remember befriending an alpha and finding an epic of the same race; that was green relations as well. So after some dancing, I had an Epic and an Alpha following me. Might have been a dream but who knows!
Played Spore when it first came out... Made it to the Space Stage and almost immediately lost interest. Didn't know there was a true ending.
I loved this game, I even made a gryphon once, but I had to finish the cell phase as omnivore to get the beaks later.Maybe I'll get it again once it's on sale.
Fyi its on sale right now on steam for 2 dollars :)
I remember the hype of this game, and when i bought it and played it, i was so disappointed in myself. I kept playing and playing, hoping that maybe the last stage was where the game really began, and it never it, it just ended.
Yeah, EA buying Maxis bascally killed this game. You can see the detail being removed as you go through the stages. Maxis had several games and when Sims took off EA said dump everything.
I beat Spore once by buying a bunch of heals and just brute forcing my way past the Grox.
i've beaten spore ages ago.Used the same save & exit to reset cooldowns glitch, but with another ability. Electromagnetic wave or so it was called. Disabled all defenses on a planet.What can i say, i just enjoyed bombing some cities.
of all the horrific glitches like ghost ships or infinite eggs in tribal stage in this game you chose...resetting cooldowns
I've playied SPORE for 15 years none stop and thats the freacking first time I see the actual endding!
Easiest way to win the space stage is to beeline for the galactic centre just ignoring any ships that may try to attack
When I played this I thought it ended with the space civilization somehow cause I couldn't progress further
when I saw the spaceship I almost spit my drink and thought it was another evolution and The Spiffing Brit just became a eldritch horror
I Didnt Knew Reaching To The Galactic Core Was The End Of Spore. I Just Rushed To The Core While Grox Was Attacking Me And I Made It Out Alive
The moment spiff said "name it something to encourage evolution" I immediately thought about Chernobyl...
I remember doing a religion run the first time and exploiting it in the same way.First run I ended up getting the "Rolling Thunder" Achievement and asking myself "Isn't that how you're supposed to do it?"I finished it in like under 20 minutes
@CoolTemmie99 It’s an achievement for beating the civ stage MUCH faster than was intended.
What does rolling thunder do?
I love how as you said “don’t ask what we did with the other species that lived here” your captain gave a creepy little smile lmao 24:20
Spore was my childhood, glad to see you coming around to break it
Pretty sure it was your mom that broke your childhood
@Stoneworks! Fancy seeing you here.
@Michael Simao Mine was Echelon and Labyrinth on Commadore 64
I use the same stratege, but to dominate the grox. But the randoms events are a pain in the ASS. They sometime happens in the otherside of the galaxy
I never allied with the Grox in order to reach the center of the galaxy. I just got as close as I could, and using the fastest ships I could build, and hauled ass before the Grox could attack me enough to destroy me.
I honestly didn’t even know spore had more than the tribal stage. I’m shook
This proves that there must be God, you had to literally control the creature for it to evolve.
The most evil part of this plan, The Didgeri Doing! 🤣
Now give a try to the hardcore mode, exterminate the Grox. Quite fun when you go for full aggressive route
Then there's super hardcore, maintain an outpost in every possible solar system.
24:14 Lets call it.. The Great Replacement. The game simply timelapsed the decades of new rockets ariving and reproducing at a higher rate.
Oh, I already knew about the clothing in tribal age. And yes, carnivore, predator, pacifist and religious, it's the most OP set for the space era.In the Cell Era, keep the initial "tube" mouth all the way - that way you can keep eating fruits despite being a carnivore cell and predatory creature! You basically remain as an onivore! And the tribal stage gets even easier, with your tribe being able to collect fruits or hunt/fish. Be sure to take the best mouth, best feet and so on to maximize your attributes - all of them, poison, claws, mouth, for attack, but also the best for all the social attributes. And the tribal clothes will slighthly increase those.
I want to point out that in the animal stage, if you gather different species then progress, you'll start with pets in the tribe stage. You can start with the max pets immediately
as a challenge i like to try to gather the rogues and have them as my bodygaurds/pets in the next stage
@Damien McGirl right. It's been a while since I last played Spore.
@TentaclesMod actually they don't revive if they die, they revive with you when you die. So it's best to gather 3 rogue creatures (that 250 HP is god tier even in tribal stage)
@Jed Bex Whenever you befriend a species, you can invite them to join your pack. They even revive with you if you all get killed.
How do you gather other species?
I’ve only watched the first 2 minutes but I’m gonna guess you’re gonna go zealot. I love how OP that archetype is, and it’s my go-to, especially when the cooldown on fanatical frenzy resets when you save and reload. The amount of spice you can get from converting T3 homeworlds is insane.
I will say Diplomat is better than Zealot in some scenarioZealot is the better Offensive Build due to the Red and Green ConsequencesWhile Diplomat is more Support oriented build since you need Green and Blue Consequences
Never even played spore. Just watch anything you put out.
Why have I never picked this game up? I’m going to have to play this now.
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.
@Mister Incognito you also have to do 9t near them, but not on them
@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!
A brit talking about religion: *cries in athiesm*Me, a religious person: here we go again
I did many things but never tried the insta religion thingie... the planet burster was too epic haha
I love how the first few minutes of game play every species around looks like they're part of the stabby Boi series
Well they're the strongest for a reason
Spore is one of those games that is just burned into my brain.Ever since I played spore for the first time as a child I have to play it at least once a year, usually around summer or Christmas. Its been like this for over 10 years, and I will probably keep doing this into my elderly days.Spore is love spore is life
spore is forever
My favorite thing to do in the space stage was to visit alien planets and raise the water level up to max, then lower it again. It wipes all the life off and you can take over freely. You get those terraforming abilities before any of the super offensive abilities.
@Empress Davrox that’s interesting. Too bad it doesn’t matter. Spore is dead, and we’ll never see another game so ambitious (got my eyes on that new game based on spore, but with all of the development hell it’s gone through, hopes are tempered.)
@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.
@Brody Cities on capital planets actually produce less, so it ends up rounding to almost the same production. You DO get more storage however!
@Adrobiel What I often do is find empires with purple spice home planets, then buy their home planet. Combine this with archetype ability refreshing and cash injection and you can take over a good chunk of the galaxy very quickly.
@findout and generous
youre legally required to keep making spore videos
I have beaten spore, once, and it took me way more than 5 days
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.
Definitely ran this strat back in the day
I almost want to go back and play this again. Almost!
The "Gym lad" part killed me
The Scientologist Civilization: grants you access to the Lawyer Hut and allows you to subjugate rival tribes by means of the Bizarre Exploitative Contract tool.
Thank you Spiff I was battling suicide until you posted another Spore video
@Yekomp Gaming Ofc yes.
Yo was this a joke?
i like the spamton music playing in the background as you slowly become spikier and spikier, really shows that you’re gonna be a big shot 8^)
This is the VERY FIRST game in the 2000's that everyone left in the draw
So the Kett from Mass Effect Andromeda had the winning strategy all along.
I've beaten it multiple ways, enemy of grox and ally.
Wow.. just wow. I learned so much from this! Damn.
1:19 this joke feels in really poor taste, considering how much of an issue it is that people don’t trust nuclear power, using fossil fuels instead, and how by making fun of Chernobyl you’re really kicking Ukraine while it’s down
6:12RCE:"The strongest shape"
Now... its time for Spore II
This had such British empire vibes🤣
"this is a friendly abduction" 🤣 that's the beginning of slavery.
I literally used to play exactly like this when i was 10
Alas, Spiff, you haven't finished Spore until you also wipe the Grox from the galaxy. 😏I've done it. I'm stupider for it. Ask me anything.
I only finished Spore once, despite playing it hundreds of times, the space stage is a real grind.
“Chernobyl” - WHEEZE… 😂 man took 90 seconds to get my funny bone. Well done sir. Well done.
amazing video i have never finished the game
i've only gotten to the space age and got immediately bored. never ever seen the ending before
Yes I beat spore once by planet busting my way to the core. I did a spice trade empire until I had the money to just start nuking the grox I came across
I actually have completed it before, I just bum rushed the center of the universe and that was that lol
"Religion is overpowered" History in a nutshell
Glad to see someone covering spore. Thought everyone had forgotten about it
Yeah, I wonder why nobody make new Spore game with current technology.

“The previous owners no longer exist. What a shame.” Sounds British enough
"meanwhile our tribe is all going to equip themselves with didgeridos"
