It's online at http://www.sporebadges.com, so anyone can use it in their signatures and get an auto-updating image. You can see it in action in my signature right now. I also plan on adding another script to generate an image of your latest creations.


Oh mann!!!
This is most excellent.
Great job.

Hi folks,
I made a new app

Creature Battle!
http://www.sporeapi.com

This is a simple creature fighting game that battles two creatures based on a random selection of stats.
I used the following feeds to get creatures:
http://www.spore.com/rest/assets/search/FEATURED/0/5/CREATURE
http://www.spore.com/rest/assets/search/TOP_RATED/0/5/CREATURE
http://www.spore.com/rest/assets/search/TOP_RATED_NEW/0/5/CREATURE
and this to get stats:

Also, I made my first app: Spore Aquarium
http://www.spore.com/comm/fishtank


This little fishtank app pulls in some of my favorite fishy creations made by community members from some Sporecasts I've already set up.

Swap Fish to get a random new set of aquatic creations.

See some of the Sporecasts this pulls from here.

Upcoming Improvements:
- Rollover text for Creation/Creator name
- Bubbles (for MaxisDangerousYams)
- Spore logo and a link back to Spore.com
- Truncate x spawn range for fishes, occasionally they come in too far to the right

Please send feedback on other ideas you have that might make this a better app.

Also, it can be easily reskinned with another background image in case you want to use the sample code to turn this into a scene from space, or any other cool diorama. Just reroute the Sporecasts it pulls from to your own collections.

Lastly, special thanks to Himmelslaub and Need2Win for creating SO many creations perfect for an alien fishtank.

Hi MaxisCactus! I have a suggestion for that app.... Maybe making a list of "Fish" creations, and letting users be able to add their own fish and underwater "Props" to the aquarium? That would be very interesting... I would use it alot more if it had that feature.
Also, I was thinking of making an app that has a list of your buddies, their subsribers, their most recent creations, and creation count. Any idea on how-to?

Each major fan made app should have its own thread.

There are more great apps that have not been posted in the gallery yet because we're still waiting on email responses from their authors.

Update: We've got a couple new additions to the gallery up today! Hirnsausen and BugSquash thanks for your replies.

Great idea, I definitely want to open this up to users to enter their own content.

One problem I ran into is that the images are not always centered in the png.

For example, there were several snail creatures that were too high, so you could see the base of the house/castle beneath them. There were also several that were too low on the png, and occluded the black bar at the base of the aquarium.

Because of this, I had to cull a lot of great creations that just weren't working. For now, it's necessary to hand pick creations that will work with the scene.

In the mean time, I was inspired by your idea to have users get their own content in, so I made a contest using the aquarium! Check it out here: http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/21829.page

I'm curious to see if other users integrate their apps into mini contests and challenges.
