    I'm glad to hear they have furry and feathery textures. Makes me wonder why those never made it into any of the screen shots. All I've seen are either smooth or scaly. And will, you may be right, but I spent an hour searching collections of Spore screenshots, and I couldn't find anything that wasn't smooth or scaly (I'm not counting wings, tail feathers, etc since I'm talking about whole-creature texture).

    Still kinda wish they'd actual model feathers and fur. Textured lion's manes, for example, are gonna suck. I guess now they have their first expansion pack:

    :p

    I thought that the older spore previews, that AFAIK had slightly better graphics, allowed for really hairy monsters inc style creatures. I think the graphics have been scaled down a bit though, or it might be my memory playing tricks on me.

    Do you think they'll market the creature creation software separately, for programs like Maya or Flame? Having stock models of creatures would make my life a lot easier.

    Well, the creature creation stuff is going to be available before the game in some form. I also spoke to EA and exporting to Maya and so on is one of the extra tools they are looking at adding in later expansion packs.
