does the EA downloader needs to be running all the time for the game to function?

That's why I didn't buy it.

They were going for $30 USD shipped but I have my doubts that the games will be American or even European copies. There have to be differences.

Also, some of the Indian sellers that are selling spore have pretty low ratings in the 96-97% range.

Anyone got any tips to stop these pesky aliens from attacking my homeworld?

i've somehow got myself involved in a war and the pricks raid my homeworld every 5 minutes. It sucks, i have to stop what i'm doing and run back there from whereever i am and fight them all off. Then rebuild all the stuff they've destroyed, and go back to my game - only to have to do it over again 5 minutes later.

I'd just go and smash up their colonies except i get my butt kicked every time i try, cause i only have 1 other ship in my fleet and despite being a fierce warrior creature who thrives on war - my weapons are teh gay.

I have the same problem. The constant attacks ruin the space stage in my opinion. I don't know how to make peace with the attackers, as they shoot on sight, and trying to upgrade my ship's weapons is a pain because everything is so pricey. I guess it makes up for the ridiculously easy earlier stages...

I think he meant to make peace with other races and then have them help you fight your enemy.

I don't have the game though so I could be wrong.

Use the commincator beside the mini map.

If they like you enough and if it's a shared enemy you should the option to ask for assistence.

The space stage actually sounds surprisingly deep from what you guys are talking about. I thought it'd be nothing more than roaming endless random planets with a space ship, terraforming, wiping out planets and making more colonies.
