I should admit to two things. Firstly; I've been so busy I've not posted in a while. Secondly; I've been playing with Spore's Creature Creator for about an hour.
In the process of making a whole host of test monsters I've created...
Not only was Yahoo Slurp the first spider I created - it looks like the best. I don't know why both MSNBot and Googlebot went so dark! The good news is that I figured out I can use the scroll wheel to re-size limbs.
I may call these 1.0, release them into the wild and then try again...
