Redirected from Modification

A modification (commonly referred to simply as a "Mod" for short) is a file or any set of files that will alter or modify the way Spore works or add or eliminate content. Spore handles mods as a "Package" file, similar to the Sims 2. Many major mods such as BetterSpore, Platinum spore, ForgottenSpore, and Orbit Spore bring in sweeping changes to Spore.

SporeMaster

Key Features:

  • You can make your own modification in it.
  • Unpacking and packing of .package files, with automatic conversion of .prop files to and from .xml. files.xml is no longer necessary.
  • Packing of .rw4 (RenderWare 4) model and texture files (from OGRE3D XML format and DDS format respectively) with packages, making part creation possible for the first time.
  • XML property files are more user-friendly than in previous mod tools, using names instead of hashes where possible. XML files are order-independent.
  • Full text indexing of .xml and .locale files in the unpacked package, to permit very fast incremental search. Search for keywords separated by spaces or “literal phrases”.
  • Side-by-side comparison of file tree in Spore and the mod under development. One-click execution of WinMerge to see and edit changes in an individual file.
  • Built in syntax highlighting editor.
  • Image and model viewers.
  • Tools for guessing the original names for hashes and for creating friendly aliases for hashes that can’t be guessed (or that were randomly generated by EA).

Another tool that can be used for XML file editing is Notepad ++.

Davo's Vocal Bot Mouths

Davo's Vocal Bot Mouths is a modification and a fan-made patch.

(From davoonline.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=94)

Normally, when you try to befriend a creature using the Dr. Pepper Bot Mouths, the game crashes because those parts do not have any social abilities. This mod fixes that by adding Sing to the parts.

(End of davoonline.com content)

This patch adds sing level 1 to the bot mouths. If you are going to share a creature with a bot mouth, and if the creature has no social parts (other then the patched bot mouth itself), it is recommended that you add a token social part to your creature before shearing it. In addition to fixing the aforementioned crashes, this should also fix another issue: some adventures (including Maxis made ones) will assume that your captain has at least sing level one, without sing you may not be able to complete those adventures.

While this patch will prevent your creature from crashing your copy of Spore, it will not prevent your creature from crashing other player's (un-patched) copies of Spore, the only way to prevent that is to add a social part to your creature.

Dark Injection

A mod created by a user named "Davo" that add parts from Darkspore into the creature creator, and aims to remove restrictions on editors. Creatures with the Darkspore parts cannot be shared, but they can be placed in adventures and viewed by others, though they will not appear in the Sporepedia. However, creatures with the Darkspore parts can be seen in-game when players are playing in any stage.

In the current version, players also can use all outfitter, captain, and even Grox parts. In addition to this, there are even silicon-like limbs that do not appear in game, making the creation of floating creatures much easier.

The mod also allows creatures to be edited in space stage, and removes the complexity limit allowing for infinitely complex creatures.

If the files are not added properly, all Darkspore parts will have their textures corrupted as well as all parts being completely devoid of animations.

The latest version of Dark Injection includes these features:

  • Plasma, Bio, Quantum, Cyber, and Necro-based limbs.
  • Heads, weapons, and body parts from the ingame characters, and ones that aren't used ingame at all.
  • Armor parts
  • Crogenitor masks.
  • Invisible limbs.
  • Invisible feet and graspers
  • Special abilities such as "Dual Blade Spin" and "Plasma Blast".
  • Mouths that makes sound.
  • Parts unlockable in Creature Stage.
  • Parts from all stages.
  • Parts do not use DNA points, nor do they take up complexity in the creature or cell creator.
  • In the building editor, roofs and main parts can be rotated in any direction if the player presses TAB.
  • Special effects taken throughout the Spore creators (including effects from Captain parts, building parts, Adventure special effects, and vehicle effects.)
  • 3D cell editor
  • Additional part handles to some creature parts.
  • Additional paint options.
  • Multiple additional charge abilities that can damage and stun.
  • Grox parts.
  • Genetic modifier, which allows the creatures themselves to be edited in the tribal, civilization, and space stages.
  • Additional parts found on cells, but normally cannot be acquired.
  • Creatures have unlimited height.

Forgotten Spore

CELL STAGE

More DNA for Eating Quicker Cell Stage Better AI Cell Stage Spine

Cell Stage Ideas for Later Versions (Delete this Entire Stage and Create the impossible Water Stage)

The Goal for this stage is to add Sea creatures and make this more like the water stage. Cell stage is the only stage that does not connect with the other stages and seems like its a side mini game. Not much can be done with this stage but we're taking ideas...

AQUATIC STAGE

The Only known development of the Aquatic stage or editor is being done by the Forgotten Spore team. The Editor seems more loose, has more space and feels much better. To access the editor you can download the Mod and go to the normal creature editor. The Mod features the Creature Creator and the Early Creator mixed along with cell parts and a Brand New GUI. Link is currently in the Youtube Description. You can find out more about its development at ForgottenSpore.com.
