I've been trying to get the Socialite achievement recently. But i've clicked way past 200 no Maxis creations, in multiple games, and it doesn't unlock. Has there been any change to this achievement? Has anyone get it recently?

In my understanding those are the creatures that count towards this achievement:

1) Creatures by other players (not Maxis), even if I have encountered this same creation in other planet.
2) My creatures, not including the one I'm playin in the current Planet, even if I have encountered this same creation in other planet.

Is that correct?

Ok, to the maths. Considering:

Number of Valid Creatures = Total Number of Encounters in Creature Stage - (Number of Maxis Creations Encountered + Your Active Creature + Non-Maxis Vehicles Enconutered)

Now let's count for every creature I played in creature stage in my current galaxy:

1) Walvas
28 - (10 + 1) = 17
2) Fania
41 - (30 + 1) = 10
3) Jaceloásta
60 - (18 + 1 + 1) = 40
4) Simnu
28 - (20 + 1 + 1) = 6
5) Thosália
112 - (84 + 1 + 1) = 26
6) Auberistói
126 - (47 + 1) = 78
7) Gabaris
25 - (14 + 1) = 10
8 ) Radina
24 - (2 + 1) = 21 PAST 200 HERE
9) Cavina
65 - (34 + 1) = 30
10) Julcio
22 - (0 + 1) = 21
11) Crix
109 - (102 + 1) = 6
12) Perda
33 - (12 + 1 + 1) = 19
13) Deolixa
74 - (43 + 1 + 1) = 29
14) Clívi
30 - (7 + 1) = 22
15) Riline
25 - (4 + 1) = 20
16) Mecarce
31 - (10 + 1) = 20
17) Melian
25 - (0 + 1) = 24
18 ) Lobitias
71 - (58 + 1) = 12

TOTAL: 391 valid creatures encountered. I guess something is broken...

Make sure you're logged in when you're playing in the creature stage, the game logs you out every-time you finish editing a creature because of a bug.

I usually am and usually log back in when I finish editing.
But anyway, does the achievement not appear if you're logged out? Or the creatures don't count?
Because I got achievements while playing offline before and just had to log back in for the achievement to register online, but this one never even appeared.

Did you use cheats? If yes, that's the reason. If you use cheats while playing Spore, it will stop you from getting achievements.

Some achievements only trigger online, for example, Maxis featuring a creation of yours (however unlikely) requires the online Sporepedia to reach your client (for it to appear), this is probably the same for other achievements, although I don't know the list of online only achievements, it's most likely recording only instances of your online interactions in the game.

As for the console menu, I wouldn't even open it. People have claimed things like Freecam can disable achievements too.

No cheats used. Just today unlocked Architect, and it list in My Spore page. I use Dark Injection, tho, but don't think it would have anything to do with it.

Hmm, that's awkward then. It is probably SPORE's glitch or you've got corrupted/broken files. Well, if you find a solution (or the reason for this bug) then tell us, maybe others will have the same problem in the future, looking for a solution

Yeah, I will.
I may uninstall and install it later so the game starts counting all the achievements again.

I also believe there's a glitch where if you do play in offline mode, and you get an achievement during it, it doesn't update to your achievements section because you weren't logged into your account when it happened, thus it doesn't know where to put the achievement.

I believe this can be fixed by reinstalling (a fresh client) and logging into the game while playing. Just remember, it always logs you out after you finish editing something in the game, so always log back in.
