Is there a way to have featured creations but filter it so only UFO's are shown?

Use this RSS feed:
http://www.spore.com/atom/assets/view/FEATURED/0/10

Then get all the assets with this modelType
<modelType> 0x98e03c0d </modelType>

those are all the featured UFOs.

Some notes:
1) The REST version of the FEATURED etc. views doesn't have modeltype in it.. we'll look into adding that.
2) For more info on modelTypes refer to this post:
http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/17803.page
3) For an example of parsing the RSS (and displaying modeltype among other things) check out this post:

When are you going to make another version for spore that we can update to (like the last one with the extra limbs)? :?:

Where can we pull a user's achievements list? I wrote a small app that parses the web content, but using the API would be much better.


= Profiles: ( NecroBones | NecroBones0 | NecroBones00 ) ----- ( Sporecasts | Creatures )

We are working on an achievements API method. It should be available in the near future.

I am currently coding a USER FRIENDLY way of sharing saved games online, but I do not know where the saved game file is on the computer. Can anyone point me in the direction?

This tells you how to get to it:

http://www.sporemods.org/forum/index.php/topic,576.0.html


since i dont use vista i do believe that this stuff is found under these files
someone who uses vista send me a message and ill add that in!

For mac users it's
User/Library/Preferences/SPORE Preferences/p_drive/User/Application Data/SPORE/Games
for mac users you must download a file run it to get hidden files to show up
search "show hidden files on mac in google"

on vista
it is C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\SPORE\Games

on xp
C:\Documents and Settings\(Username)\Application Data\SPORE\Games
this file is hidden
so you may have to open any folder
step 1 >> click tools
step 2 >> folder options
step 3 >> find the view tab
step 4 >> find the hidden files and folders
check to see if its set to do not show hidden files or folders
if so continue to step 5 or if it is set to show your finished
step 5 >> click on the one below it that states show hidden files or folders
step 6 >> at the top click the button that says apply to all folders
step 7 >> click the apply at the bottom then click cancel
this above can be done from any folder just dont forget to do step 6!

the below steps are for windows vista
Follow these steps to display hidden files and folders.
1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
2. Click the View tab.
3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.


The "Game0" folder is your galaxy.

Ok, one last question:

Are the files cross-platform? Such as if you try and open a file on the mac when it was created on a PC, will it open?

This will let my app become cross-platform.

EDIT: Also, can .zip files or other compressed files be uploaded just like the .png files onto Spore.com?

Do not triple post. Spamming the thread will not get you an answer.
