We have had a massive amount of feedback from last weekend when we released BetterSpore 1.5.0. Much of it was positive, but with any game or mod there are bugs, and we have done our best to get rid of all the bugs we can. For some of the bugs in BetterSpore, we could not fix them as it was a game issue which came from having the mod. These are issues like the ones in the tribal stage where you can’t get food. This is why we have made 4 version of the Gameplay package.

- BetterSpore Gameplay - This contains all the gameplay changes, there are no new weapons or parts.

- BetterSpore Gameplay NoCreature - This removes all gameplay changes to the creature stage.

- BetterSpore Gameplay NoTribal - This removes all gameplay changes to the tribal stage.

- BetterSpore Gameplay NoCreatureAndTribal - This removes all gameplay changes to the creature and tribal stage.

*sigh* EpicWarz is still a little off. I can buy it from a shop, but it doesnt appear in my tool box. So I cant use it.

EDIT: I also have a question for BL/FF - Bit off topic, but were you ever able to get "Start With Everything" mod to work? If so, Could you explain how exactly? Ty, That would make the perfect game for me

Seems it still doesn't like it... I'll try and fix it up.

You would need to start a new game, and make sure you do the training missions (the ones where you go through rings at the beginning), however it may not work with BetterSpore.

They're still at 40, alphas are at 50, and babies are at 20.

- 4 needed for socalize bonus

These are not working, they are still at what I assume are the original settings for 1.5.
FutureFilms wrote:- Now when playing Cell2Creature, all parts cost 25 DNA points, and you have 180 to spend.

They are still at their original prices, and the amount of DNA to start with is the same.

These are the only things fixed (though I wouldn't say "fixed" for that first change), so was the NoTribal package not updated?

Can you make a "lite" version of the mod that includes just the new parts? Because the parts are interesting, but I don't want the gameplay changes.

We've got one fish, two fish, red fish, dead fish! EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

recently, I've been making new creations. Rejoice!

That's already in there, follow the link to the Better Spore page. There are seperate package files in the download, so that you can mix and match them.

EA constantly delays them, plus mods are easy to install and free. I doubt that Maxis would make an expansion with systems that have 30 planets, or unlock the hidden cell and Grox parts, or turn level 5 spit into fireballs.
But if you like the game the way it is, that's fine.

If you had followed the link FutureFilms provided, you would have known that earlier:
Better Spore Homepage wrote:Q: What is Maxis’s position on mods, and will my online experience be affected?

A: Maxis is fine with the modding community existing, and we have talked a few times, however they do not provide support for mods. The only effect on your online experience is that all creatures which use the complexity packages or the new parts (grox/cell included) will not upload.

Since I havent been able to find an answer to this after some searching by myself, I'm hoping someone here can answer this for me - if I decide I want to uninstall any part of this mod, is it as simple as deleting the .package file from the Data folder? Will there be issues with my existing save games if I used any part of the mod in, with or on them?

Basically I want to try this thing out, but what I DONT want is to have to uninstall/reinstall Spore to get it back to normal if I don't like the mods. Installing this game is consistenly a nightmare for me... Anyway! Thanks in advance
