Spore - the Hive by Monster-Man-08 Spore - the Hive by Monster-Man-08
Like the Zerg, Tyranids, Arachnids, and all their sister races, all members of this hive species are born into a specific role, and all obey a 'hive mind.'
It's a shame you can't 'group' species in Spore.

1) Emperor- outnumbering the Empress, the Emperors don't do much
2) Empress- the egg laying leader of the hive
3) Ambassador- checks if any newcomer to the hive is worthy/non-threat
4) Commander- leads the hive's fighting forces
5) Defender- blocks enemies, often in high numbers, enough to clog tunnels
6) Larvae- infant form of every hive member
7) Nursery- carries the hive's precious eggs on it's back
8) Tunneler- digs tunnels
9) Goliath- similar role as the Defender, but adapted for use outside the actual hive
10) Transporter- carries stuff, such as food or the limbless workers, on it's back
11) Lighting- it gets dark in the hives, and light can be a useful weapon against persistent foes
12) Storage- used to store food for lean months
13) Ravage- defends the hive by slashing/stabbing intruders
14) Acid- defends the hive by spitting acids; legs have been reduced to stubs
15) Infected- used to spread diseases, though this bug dies in the process
16) Scout- scouts for threats/food sources

My faves are the larva and the tunneler. I NEED the C&C pack!

would be nice if you could make eco-combos
or even save entire planets/ biospheres to your sporepedia for distribution... I've been a bit disapointed with some of the limitations on what is an isin't shared and how.
