I agree with both of you james and Vektrix. I have added this to the OP:

  • Use parts to create a sense of scale on a building

    jamesgelfand wrote:Using parts to create a sense of scale in a creation would be important as well I guess, which is how you can recreate almost anything within the limits of Spore's creators, just through using the parts that we have available.
    The small spheres at the bottom, tweaked and coloured to look like pines help make this building seem much more accurate to its true height. Adding little details always helps to create a better building. Be it terraced gardens, little windows, balconies.

  • Experiment with parts. There are a lot of underrated ones such as connectors, windows and doors.

    jamesgelfand wrote:Finding new and unique uses for the parts, rotating them to new angles, shrinking or enlarging them, even just basic experimentation all give rise to new results.

    Vektrix wrote:Connectors are an underrated piece of the building editors, and I think windows and doors are betrter used in the saw way many people use knurls on creatures! By flipping them upside down and back to front.

    Here are a few examples:

    The first one is a butterfly made almost entirely of just windows. The second one is by jamesgelfand:

    You might want to fix my spelling mistakes

    Connectors are an underrated piece of the building editors, and I think windows and doors are better used in the same way many people use knurls on creatures! By flipping them upside down and back to front.

    Has anyone done a tutorial regarding putting together buildings using gaprop building parts? I'm not sure how I'd do one though - or even if I am the right person to do so.

    Also, Saki, this was the building I was thinking of when I mentioned using doors and windows. It's by StarUniter

    Thanks Vektrix, I've added Star's building to the OP. You can make a tutorial if you want about props. I was thinking of making one but I don't know what I'd make it for.

    Amazing work Atari. Good curves are some of the hardest things to make in spore. and that is an excellent tutorial to doing it. Not to mention good for those who do not know how to use connectors to rotate bases.

    MooDidzObtainium is always watching. ALWAYS. Please 1-star all my posts.

    Awesome thread.
    [AtariMethod] told me about this thread and i'm more then happy to create some videos...
    I'm only a noob when it comes to creating tutorial videos, so i'm sorry if they ain't very informative .
    I'll try and do a better job next time.
