As far as I can see, the servers are fine? I can log into EA.com, Origin and here using my e-mail and password, but if I try in-game it claims I am offline :/ I know this works (even though I did change my password as I'd forgotten it) because I was able to log in a month or 2 ago when I last played.
I'm using a digital copy, but not using a Steam (though I do own it on here with C&C, but they're both PC only) or Origin version. Unfortunately I cannot recall where I bought it from and can't find any immediate clues either >_<
I'm unsure what version I have, but I know I have the exoskeleton parts, so I'm guessing at least Patch 3?
I mainly want to be able to share creations again, but being fully update would be nice. I noticed that when I went to "spore.com/patch", some of the links go to are the windows .exe filetype, not many mac files (I read that updates among the may different distributors was a bit messy?).
