What is BetterSpore?

BetterSpore is a community made mod which improves many aspects of Spore. There are many features in this mod all of which are optional. This is not a Maxis made mod, it is made by the community using SporeMaster, and will be used at your own risk, we describe later on how to minimize problems. We have extensively tested BetterSpore on a variety of spore gaming platforms, and we have reduced out many of the problems. Go to the Bugs page to see all the current know bugs, and to post new ones. 




1.5 is a overhaul of the old BetterSpore with many new features, here are the highlights:


          46 New Parts


          Over 20 new space tools


          Overhaul of the Creature and Space stages


          Changes to the Tribal  and Civilization stage


          A complete GUI (Graphics User Interface) change


For more on these features download and read the Readme.

    It doesn’t work for me. Could the issue be that my game is a Dutch version?

    so you could now stop developing and removing bugs from BS(Better Spore)and try to make more versions in some other languages,but that will be in the future…

    Umm.. I found a bug. I was playing on a previous save game. I began to collect parts to see if it works, and it stopped showing the collected part sign on the left of the screen. I kept collecting and it would only show it for eye/face parts. When I mated and went into the creator, the unknown collected parts were there. Also, none of the “new” parts ever showed, and only 2 grox parts showed. One was that helmet thingy and the other, I can’t remember, but it is the one with the yellow light and is kind of like a rectangle.
    NOTE: This was on a save that was made BEFORE I installed BetterSpore 1.5..

      Well it is most likely a problem due to you playing an old save. Many things may go wrong when that happens which is why we strongly advise to start a new game.
