Cybertronians are created through at least two methods, they are either "Forged" or "Constructed Cold." 塞伯坦人通过两种途径被创造出来（出生），不是神铸，就是冷组建——这名字真的很给力
Forging was the natural way for Cybertronians to be created. 神铸是塞伯坦人最自然的出生方式
An energy pulse from Vector Sigma would flash across the world, igniting a hot spot where new sparks would emerge from the planet.
There would be great rejoicing and ceremony, and the sparks and base substance would be sought out and harvested from the living metal of Cybertron or its moons. 这就像个伟大的庆典和仪式一样，火种和基本物质会从塞伯坦或者其卫星上活的金属中找到并收获。
Cold Construction was a method created later when Nova Prime learned natural spark creation was slowing.
He created it as a way of bolstering the population. 他创造的冷组建的方法获得了广大人民的支持。
The general population was told that it functioned through splitting a Forged spark to create a new life.
That's the official story. 当然这是官方的说法（官谣？）
Actually, Nova realised that soon there would be no new pulsewaves and panicked: no new sparks means not enough Transformers to create a grand galactic empire.
Under the "spark splicing" cover story, Nova's scientists (headed by Tyrest) tapped into the Matrix itself and bleed it to create new sparks.
Thousands of sparks a day were created, with cold-constructed bodies to house them. This only stopped after the Matrix was pinched.
The initial result of cold construction was apartheid against "knock offs", with some city-states 'proving' that they were substandard. 冷组建变形金刚最初作为被某些市民认为是不合格品拒之门外，对他们采取“仿制品”种族隔离制度
Religion was brought into it: the fact that many of the best medics were forged (due to the fluidity and dexterity of their hands) was taken as proof of the god Adaptus.
By the time Megatron was first arrested, the apartheid was officially considered a thing of the past.
Ironfist and Chromedome were constructed cold before the war while Fulcrum was forged after it began, during the Decepticon's height.
Whirl, Ratchet and Pharma are pre-war forged.
Some naturally-born sparks are "point one percenters" (about 0.01% of the population), with abilities greater than than the average Transformer. 某些自然出生的火种有“百里挑一”的机会（大约占变形金刚总人口的0.01%）自身能力强于变形金刚的平均水平。
Known "Point One Percenters" include Overlord, Minimus Ambus, Impactor, and Roller , while Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Scorponok, and Shockwave are implied to be.
Insecticons Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback are created by Decepticon scientists after many failed attempts.
The failed attempts lived on and were collectively known as "the swarm".
