You've assimilated all dissenters. Your species is united for the first time in history. What are you to do? Expand to the stars, of course! Spore's Space Stage is easily the most complex part of the game. In fact, each element is so complex that BigDownload can't cover all of it in a single guide post! Therefore, the Space portion of this guide is to be spread out all next week to further cover each of the elements. However, they won't leave you hanging. That would be rude! Here's how to make your first steps into space.
The very first thing you should do when entering the Space Stage is to change around your outfit to fit your new technological age. You can do it at any time, but it's easiest immediately, so go ahead and do so! After you are done with your new outfit, you are ready to begin your travels through the depths of space. If you want, you can create new, more space-themed buildings for your colonies. It is, however, entirely optional. If you want to use a pre-existing building, just click on the 2x2 grid of squares at the bottom left of the building selection.
