+-------------------------------[ Introduction ][164D]-------------------------+

   Welcome to Spore! Or more accurately, my guide to the Spore Achievements and
 Badges. I'm not normally a guide writer, but I am a collector personality, so
 badges and achievements are one of my favorite hooks in a game (or my biggest
 nightmare; it depends how hard they are to get!).

   This guide will include the badges and achievements available in Spore, as
 well as how to get them. When possible, multiple ways to achieve something will
 be listed.


+--------------------[ A Note on Cheating ][164D][B56A]

   While the cheats available in the console window (Ctrl+Shift+C) look
 appealing for earning several achievements, DON'T CHEAT. If you do use one of
 the console commands that are considered "cheats", the save game you cheated
 on will no longer count towards *any* achievements (already earned achievements
 will remain).

   Cheats can earn you badges just fine (in fact, the Joker badge is awarded for
 cheating), but you will no longer earn achievement credit.


+----------------------[ Alphabetical Achievement List ][0C0D]-----------------+

   To view your achievements, open the Sporepedia at any time during the game,
 and select the Achievements button on the left side. All of the achievements
 will be listed, and the ones you have will be highlighted and in color.

   You can also view your achievements earned (or anyone else's) by visitng
 http://www.spore.com/view/achievements/YourNameHere

   This section will only be a reproduction of the list found in the Sporepedia
 in the game. For tips and tricks to earning them, see the Achievements By

+-------------------------[ Achievements by Category ][1D59]-------------------+

   Now I'll include tips and tricks to actually
 obtain the achievements. They'll be sorted like so:
   - General: These achievements can be earned in any stage, or must be earned
        through some actions in all of the stages. Note that while the "_____
        Stage Unlocked" achievements only require action in a single stage and
        can only be unlocked there, I include them in this section because these
        are the achievements allowing you to start new games further down the
        evolutionary ladder.
   - Cell: These are unlocked through actions in the Cell stage.
   - Creature: These are unlocked through actions in the Creature stage.
   - Tribe: These are unlocked through actions in the Tribe stage.
   - Civilization: These are unlocked through actions in the Civilization stage.
   - Space: These are unlocked through actions in the Space stage. Note that
        Badges, only availabe in Space, have their own section, and do not carry
        across game saves.

   Each section will have a division of tilde (~) characters to separate the
 "secret" achievements from the rest.


+--------------------[ General ][1D59][0CB3]

   The following achievements can be earned in any stage of Spore (or,
 alternatively, must be earned in all of them).

== Architect
Req: Create and share 50 buildings
== Automotive Engineer
Req: Make and share 50 vehicles
== Biologist
Req: Create and share 100 creatures
Tips:
   * If you like the creators, these should be simple
   * If you don't like the creators, you can throw random junk together,
     or alternatively, grab someone else's junk and modify it. Someone may
     notice the stunt and think less of you for it, but then they have to _find_
     your modification, first.

== Civilization Stage Unlocked
Req: Finish the Tribe stage
Tips:
   * Make babies as soon as you can, whenever you can
   * Domesticate strong animals (if you have creatures following you in Creature
     stage that were not your species, they'll automatically be domesticated) to
     help town defense
   * Leave one or two tibe members to gather food, and use *all* of the rest of
     them to attack or ally with another tribe. Come home to rest and eat
     between battles/serenades

== Creator
Req: Spend 50 hours in the creators
Tips:
   * You should be able to leave the game in the creator and go do something
     else, if you're not interested in actually _engaging_ in the creator

== Creature Stage Unlocked
Req: Finish the Cell stage
Tips:
   * Herbivores and Omnivores can eat (and grow) quickly by hanging around the
     large plant clusters - depending on how much you can get to before the AI
     does, you can often grow large enough to start eating the next tier of the
     same plant, so you don't have to even move
   * Omnivores are just cells which eat near-equal amounts of plant and meat.
     You can have two mouths!
   * Scale your skeleton up to max size, for more surface area to put your cell
     parts

== Deja Vu
Req: Discover something you created in another game
Tips:
   * Just explore until you find one of your own creations. I often run into
     my own species during the beginning of Space stage, on my home planet no
     less! And that counts

== Front Page News
Req: Have one of your creations or Sporecasts featured on www.spore.com
Tips:
   * Be ready to spend a lot of time in the creator making something that looks
     awesome
   * Give your creation relevant (and CORRECTLY SPELLED) tags to make it easier
     to find
   * Make friends, and ask them to rate up your creation(s)

== Galatic God
Req: Reach the Space stage in one game session
Tips:
   * If you don't have the time to do this, try leaving the game running, but
     paused. Even if your "session" happens to be 72 hours, it's still one
     session ;)
   * On the other hand, you may have no life like me, and get this one on
     accident the night you buy the game!

== Photographer
Req: Send a photo or video to a friend from Test Drive mode
Tips:
   * Go into the creature creator. Create something (anything!). Send a picture
     of it to yourself from the Test Drive mode. If sending to your
     Spore-account email address does not work (I haven't tried it), look up
     mailinator.com - they accept any username for an email address as valid, so
     you can send your picture to literally AnyDarnThingYouWant@mailinator.com.
     The game does not attempt to check if the recipient read the mail, or even
     that the mail arrived, only that you sent it

== Rising Star
Req: Have 5 Sporecasts subscribed to by at least 10 people
Tips:
   * Make 5 sporecasts. I suggest putting 50 things in each, and if you look at
     the Social Engineer achievement, you'll know why. Now, make some friends.
     I can't help you with that last part

== Social Engineer
Req: Make 5 Sporecasts with 50 creations
Tips:
   * You can make a sporecast and populate it with absolutely anything. You're
     *supposed* to have a theme to it, but there's no requirement. Adding
     creations one-by-one can get tedious, though, especially since you need,
     ultimately, to add 250 creations to sporecasts.

== Space Stage Unlocked
Req: Finish the Civilization stage
Tips:
   * Create a couple vehicles instantly and go capture the geysers on your
     continent. The other civilizations will rarely attack your geysers (even
     on Hard mode after pissing everyone off), so there's no pressing need to
     defend them
   * Overwhelm your target cities with religious or military vehicles (if you're
     not going for economic victory), and if they start dying off, replace all
     the ones that have died with new ones from the nearest city
   * Enemies will usually only attack with one or two vehicles at a time; a
     compliment of turrets will be sufficient defense, even on Hard mode
   * The biggest danger you may face is an Epic creature taking interest in one
     of your cities, or being between your city and the next opposing one. And
     Epic can one-shot your vehicles, two-shot your turrets, and three-shot your
     buildings. Fortunately they cannot capture your city, but they can
     certainly soften you up for an opponent. Treat Epics near your cities as
     serious threats

== Spore Addict
Req: Spend 100 hours in your Spore galaxy
== Spore Fan
Req: Spend 50 hours in your Spore galaxy
Tips:
   * You could leave the game idle for 100 hours, but you'd succumb to eco
     disasters, and if you're at war you'd probably lose some colonies as well.
     You could save your game and then idle, and then quit without saving, but
     you might need to do the full 100 hours that way, as I'm not sure if
     credit for this achievement is stored in your game saves or on your
     account. It's probably best to just continue conquering the galaxy until,
     eventually, you get it

== Tribe Stage Unlocked
Req: Finish the Creature stage
Tips:
   * If you want to go the social route, it is critical get at least 1 in each
     of the social attributes ASAP. Getting values in the combat attributes is
     less critical - more of a "I want less downtime" than a "I need it to think
     of succeeding" thing
   * If you find a creature named "Rogue ____", befriend it IMMEDIATELY. Rogues
     are much more poerful than any other ally you can come accross, both in
     social and combat attributes. And since they're flying solo, having even
     one backup dancer means you're almost guaranteed to befriend them

== Universe in a Box
Req: Play in every stage and every creator
Tips:
   * I don't believe the creators accessible from the main menu count

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

== Bad Baby!
Req: Have one of your assets banned
Tips:
   * I assume this means someonebans your creation from their game, not that
     your creation was banned from the Sporepedia for rules violations. The
     latter would be rewarding behavior against the TOS, and the former would
     be rewarding people who offend the sensibilities of the prudes... or
     something

== Can't Win for Losing
Req: Die once in every stage
Tips:
   * This may actually be difficult to do in Tribal and Civilization, as you
     have multiple things that need to die to count as "dead". In Cell,
     Creature, and Space, you're almost guaranteed to die if you're on Hard mode
     (doubly so if you try invading the Grox territory in Space)
   * For Tribal, get all of your neighbors mad at you by attacking them. Don't
     make babies whenever a tribe member dies, and the raids should start
     swiftly
   * For Civilization, similar applies. Make your allies anrgy with some
     attacks, then turtle up, but drop the shell, as it were (remove all
     turrets)

== Pathological Cheater
Req: Earn 50 Joker badges
Tips:
   * The descrition says cheat 50 times; this is false, as granting yourself 1
     billion sporebucks requires 100. This achievement actually requires
     cheating 50 times /in separate games/, earning you the Joker badge, proving
     that you've cheated
   * PLEASE NOTE: USING A CHEAT WILL PREVENT YOU FROM EARNING ANY FURTHER
     ACHIEVEMENTS ON THAT GAME SAVE
   * I'm going to say it again, just to make sure we're clear on this:

   ===   PLEASE NOTE:   ===
    CHEATING PREVENTS YOU FROM EARNING FURTHER ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE SAME SAVE

   * In order to cheat, open the console menu with Ctrl+Shift+C
   * Not all console commands are cheats. Specifically, the ones which grant you
     an in-game advantage will give you the Joker badge, and count as cheats:
     - setConsequenceTrait 
     - evoadvantage
     - moreMoney
     - refillMotives
     - unlockSuperWeapons
     - spaceCreate


+--------------------[ Cell Stage ][1D59][1FAE]

== Aluminum Cell
Req: Complete Cell stage on Hard setting
Tips:
   * Exploit the fact that death has no real penalty. You get a (skippable)
     animation/cutscene, and are back to before you died (without whatever
     ate you looming over your shoulder). Since the Cell stage is completed by
     gaining enough DNA, so long as you can get at least 1 DNA between deaths,
     you're making progress. The only way you can fail is if you simply give up

== Cell Addict
Req: Finish the Cell Stage 25 times
Tips:
   * Fairly self-explanatory. If you're good enough to get Speedfreak, this
     should take ~3hr, 20min of cell stage playing. If you're not good enough
     to get Speedfreak, I hope you like fl0w :)

== Completist
Req: Unlock all parts in the cell stage
Tips:
   * As soon as you see a part you do not have being used by another cell, avoid
     gaining DNA until you kill one of them for their cell part. Several parts
     (especially the Probiscus mouth and the Electrode weapon) are only possible
     to find in a narrow size range, and can be difficult to find

== Landfall
Req: Finish the Cell stage and clamber onto the planet's surface
Tips:
   * Herbivores and Omnivores can eat (and grow) quickly by hanging around the
     large plant clusters - depending on how much you can get to before the AI
     does, you can often grow large enough to start eating the next tier of the
     same plant, so you don't have to even move
   * Omnivores are just cells which eat near-equal amounts of plant and meat.
     You can have two mouths!
   * Scale your skeleton up to max size, for more surface area to put your cell
     parts

== Pacifist
Req: Finish the Cell stage without killing another creature
Tips:
   * Use an Herbivore mouth (Carnivore and Omnivore mouths can both harm other
     cells)
   * Do not add any weapons to your cell (5 flagella is perfectly fine, though)

== Speedfreak
Req: Finish the Cell stage in under 8 minutes
Tips:
   * ???

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are no scret achievements for the Cell stage


+--------------------[ Creature Stage ][1D59][14FD]

== Bestial
Req: Play the Creature stage 10 times
Tips:
   * Self explanatory. ~10hrs if you can get Speed Demon

== Devourer
Req: Eat 50 different species
Tips:
   * On a carnivore or omnivore, eat each time you extinct a race. Depending on
     how many races you extinct, this would probably take 3 playthroughs (this
     achievement allows what you eat in several games to count)

== Epic Killer
Req: Kill an epic in Creature stage
Tips:
   * Get Spit 5
   * Get Jump 5 and Glide 5, or alternatively Speed 5 (or all 3)
   * Recruit 3 Rogues
   * Find an Epic and start spitting. Your Rogue friends probably won't attack
     (and if they do anything but Spit, they're gonna die), but they should be
     able to fend off any other creatures that try to interrupt you.
   * This is going to take some time, and you will get hungry. Be an omnivore so
     you can eat anything you come across
   * I've had people claim that while spitting at the Epic, the epic would not
     attack any other target; so they dragged the Epic to their home nest, where
     the other members of their species attacked the Epic, accelerating the
     damage output
   * Do *NOT* let the Epic get out of your line of sight; if you have to search
     for the Epic again, the game may have despawned/respawned it, healing it
     back to full. If you don't lose LoS, the Epic will never get despawned

== Everyone's BFF
Req: Befriend 20 other species in Creature stage
Tips:
   * To befriend, match the actions of the creature you're trying to impress.
     Impressing enough creatures (usually 3) of a single species will befriend
     that species. Herbivores get a special power that makes impressing a
     creature easier
   * Sing: musical notes appear above the creature's head
     Dance: the creature hops around on its feet while a fast beat plays
     Charm: the creature does some action (usually a pirouette and ending with a
            shake of the butt) with the sound of chiming bells
     Pose: the creature spreads its arms and bows, with the sound of trumpeting
           fanfare
   * You can get this achievement after filling your progress bar to go to
     tribal. Just gon't click the blue button in the corner
   * Getting level 5 in all of the social abilities (Sing, Dance, Charm, Pose)
     helps immensely, as does recruiting Rogue creatures to your pack
   * Impressing Alpha creatures will give you a new body part

== Evolver
Req: Finish Creature Stage
Tips:
   * If you want to go the social route, it is critical get at least 1 in each
     of the social attributes ASAP. Getting values in the combat attributes is
     less critical - more of a "I want less downtime" than a "I need it to think
     of succeeding" thing
   * If you find a creature named "Rogue ____", befriend it IMMEDIATELY. Rogues
     are much more poerful than any other ally you can come accross, both in
     social and combat attributes. And since they're flying solo, having even
     one backup dancer means you're almost guaranteed to befriend them

== Flight of the Bumblebee
Req: Fly for 200 meters
Tips:
   * Glide 5 and Jump 5 are basically required
   * Spice geysers and volcanoes give you an updraft while flying
   * Don't fly over deep water
   * Epics are able to pick you up and throw you. Just be careful they don't
     stomp on you instead!

== Foe
Req: Extinct 20 species in Creature stage
Tips:
   * Make sure your pack is filled with strong allies (eg: Alpha creatures),
     with Rogues being better than any other option
   * Exploit the fact that death has very little consequence - you're just sent
     back to your nest (and if you die before your pack members, they'll spawn
     back at your nest with you)

== Iron Creature
Req: Complete Creature stage on Hard
Tips:
   * Exploit the lack of a death penalty
   * Being social means less frequent deaths, as you're allying with everyone
     rather than fighting

== Max Power
Req: Max out 4 stats in Creature
Tips:
   * You can complete this even after your progress bar has filled and you're
     ready to advance to Tribal
   * Socialize with or defeat Alpha creatures for new parts
   * Examine piles of bones (esp. large bones) for new parts
   * Any 4 stats are acceptable

== Socialite
Req: Meet 200 creatures made by other players
Tips:
   * Since Everyone's BFF and Foe both need 20 species, and you'll rarely get
     the same species in two games, expect 10 playthroughs of Creature for this
     one. (Note: I'm uncertain whether two creatures from the same player count
     as separate creatures, or whether Maxis counts as a player)

== Speed Demon
Req: Finish Creature stage within an hour
Tips:
   * Give yourself some decent movement speed. Sprint wouldn't hurt, either
   * I found that being an aggressive species (such as achieveing Foe) was
     quicker overall than trying to be social or balanced, even on Hard mode.
     Recruit Alphas from your own pack until you find Rogues to replace them
     with, and go to town. Don't worry about how much you're outclassed unless
     you're /far/ outclassed, especially if you have Rogue backup

== Survivor
Req: Finish Creature stage without dying
Tips:
   * A social creature will do best at this, since you have little fighting. A
     social herbivore doubly so, since you don't need to kill to eat (and if you
     went through Cell, an herbivore gives you a consequence ability to help
     socialize with angry species)
   * Stay far, far away from Epics
   * Stay out of the water
   * You can eat egs out of someone else's nest without getting them angry or
     doing any fighting

== Village Folks
Req: Have three different posse members
Tips:
   * This requires having some of the social skills, possibly all of them,
     depending on what you run into in your game
   * Rogues are guaranteed to be a different species from anyone else, so
     they're always a safe bet for adding to your pack

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

== Cerberus
Req: Evolve a creature with three heads
Tips:
   * "Head" in this case actually means "Mouth"
   * You can have three identical mouths, but you need to have *three* of them
   * You need three *actual* mouths, not one mouth and one mouth duplicated due
     to bilateral symmetry. It's fine if all three mouths are duplicated by the
     symmetry

== General Custer
Req: Lead 30 posse members to their death
Tips:
   * I believe this needs to be actual members you've recruited to your pack
     (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
   * This can be across multiple games
   * Epics are the easiest way to get a posse member killed

== Slugger
Req: NEVER put legs on your creature in Creature stage
Tips:
   * The in-game text for this achievement says "finish". The achievement
     actually requires that your creature never has legs at all. Even putting on
     legs and removing them before leaving the creator is not good enough for
     this one. When going for this achievement, just don't touch legs or feet at
     all, ever
   * You can, however, sprint, jump, and glide. I believe sprinting is only
     available from feet and the jet squirter from the Cell stage, and if you
     remove the Jet after the first Creature modification, it's gone for good.
     High jump values come from feet as well, but the wings all have smaller
     jump values

+--------------------[ Tribe Stage ][1D59][FA26]

== Domestic Bliss
Req: Domesticate three different species
Tips:
   * Any pack members that aren't members of your own species at the end of the
     Creature stage will automatically be domesticated in Tribe stage. So if you
     got Village Folks without using your own race, you'll get this one
     automatically
   * Otherwise, set your stance to social and interact with a wild animal in
     Tribal - you'll give the creature some food, and they'll follow you back
     to your tribe. To this for 3 different species

== Ergonomically Terrific
Req: Complete the Tribal stage in less than an hour
Tips:
   * As with Creature, I found this achievement much easier with an aggressive
     race, going for Vicious. Predators have an advantage with their Fire Bomb
     ability, destroying things faster. Socialites' fireworks will let your
     orchestra finish sooner
   * Your movement ability does affect your speed in this stage. A
     speed 5/jump 5/glide 5 race will reach the other tribes more quickly than a
     race used to get Slugger
   * The Combat stat gained from tribal outfits will help you kill faster. The
     Social stat will help you appease your audience efficiently
   * Only one or two tribe members need to be set to food gathering, while the
     rest go to outnumber the other tribe

== Founder
Req: Complete the Tribal stage and build a city
Tips:
   * Make babies as soon as you can, whenever you can
   * Domesticate strong animals (if you have creatures following you in Creature
     stage that were not your species, they'll automatically be domesticated) to
     help town defense
   * Leave one or two tibe members to gather food, and use *all* of the rest of
     them to attack or ally with another tribe. Come home to rest and eat
     between battles/serenades

== Steel Tribe
Req: Complete Tribe stage on Hard setting
Tips:
   * This is when you start having an actual penalty to losing badly - you start
     the entire stage over, rather than just where you left off. But only if
     every member of your tribe dies. So, make sure one or two members are
     always gathering food, and make babies whenever you're able to
   * Again, being a peaceful friendly sing-song hippie (I jest!) should result
     in less death in this stage. But watch out for the Epics!

== Tribal
Req: Complete the Tribal stage 10 times
Tips:
   * Self explanatory. If you're going for Cell Addict, Bestial, and Relentless,
     why not go for this at the same time?

== Tribal Socialite
Req:  Convert all 5 opposing tribes
Tips:
   * Take all the tribe members you can afford and equip them evenly with all of
     the instruments you have available. Grab them and your chief, and head to a
     village to sing a song and be happy. Note that you must ally with *all*
     other tribes in this stage to get the achievement, thus precluding the
     achievement of both this and Vicious in the same game

== Vicious
Req: Destroy all 5 oppsing tribes
Tips:
   * The best combat strategy I've found is as follows:
     - Gather all but one or two of your tribe members (and your chief) to form
       your raiding party.
     - If you have healing staves, equip two of them
     - For everyone without a healing staff, equip axes if you have them,
       otherwise spears, otherwise nothing (yes, ignore the torches)
     - Advance your raiding party to the opposing tribe, and attack their
       /members/
     - Once all the tribe members are dead, steal their food
     - As soon as you have the food picked up, attack their hut
   * Taking their food and then attacking their hut will cause you to drop the
     food on the ground. But it's also not in their storage, which hinders (or
     outright stops, depending on difficulty) their production of babies, so
     you'll be free to destroy their hut virtually unmolested. I say to use axes
     or spears for your offense, because axes are most effective against units,
     and spears are generally useful. Torches are only useful against buildings,
     but since you're attacking the hut practically for free, there's no need
     for them.

== Watchful Parent
Req: Complete Tribal stage without the death of a tribe member
Tips:
   * Peaceful is really the only way to go with this. If you try to fight, at
     least one member will inevitably die
   * Hover your mouse over each new tribe as they appear, to check how they like
     you. If any tribe is orange or red, send them a gift IMMEDIATELY, so they
     don't try to attack you. An attack can easily lose you a tribe member, as
     well

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

== Medic
Req: Heal a tribe member to full health 5x
Tips:
   * This must be done in a single game
   * Best way to achieve this is to get several healers following a torchbearer
     around as they try to whck some wild Alpha creatures
