I thought it was worth a shot. I mean this game has basically been dead for even longer than 4 years, yet we are still here. Or in my case, I started when there was only the trial version back in 2008 and my version of the game corrupted before GA was released. Then I came back when my son gave me the Steam version of the game as a father's day present in 2015.

Back before GA, the Sporum was very different. There were many "clubs" and we all had to make up our own version of GA using the Sporum to post creations to carry the storyline. If you look way back into the Sporum around 2008-09, you would see that the Pirates of the Solar Winds was as a fun group before my game corrupted. The big groups I remember were the Pirates, the Cyplox, and the Agents.

If you ever want to try mods it is possible to convert the Steam version into the origin version. However you will likely lose your save data.

Just something to consider.


As for it being dead. Technically its been abandoned by EA. But as far as I'm conserned a game is only dead when A: Its online only and the server is shut down or B: Most of its player base has abandoned it.

Looking at the player base Spore still seems to be going pretty well.


Also that's a pretty cool story.

He's actually the man that lives in Trump's finger.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders lives in Trump's backside. I'm trying to imply that Sanders is a smelly brown thing. Please don't ban me for it.

Ghostofillusion blogpost #1:

I'm gonna start doing these since I don't post here a lot anymore. Back in 2010 to around early 2012, there was a humungous dislike for the use of Spore renders. As in, people didn't like using Spore creations in their signatures. Why? It was always due to the side restriction of how small signatures were allowed to be on the Sporum. Posing creatures was always super difficult as well.




I personally never had a problem with them. If the creations were good, I'd take it into the editor and figure out the best way to pose it with flow. Ideas would start coming to me there. Imo, some of my absolutely favorite sigs I ever made were from Spore renders.




So don't let certain resources restrict your creativity or job... if anything, it should expand it, and help you think of different styles you could apply. I stopped seeing it as "a low quality render you had to work around" and started thinking of Spore renders as "creatures you could model and add a whole abstract scenery around". That was one of the most exciting parts to me.

If you have any questions on how I made any of these, feel free to ask.

So Ghost, think you could hook me up with a sig using the pirate I posted above and carrying the same text?

I have a lot of Pirate ships to if you wanted to work that into the background. Or if you could just feature the hat emblem in a sig, I would be stoked with that too. I just feel like the odd man out around here without any sig.
