BetterSpore Milestone: 10,000 downloads – Parts Pack on its way

Posted by ballightning on June 2, 2009

It is been 3 months since the stunning release of BetterSpore 1.5. Since the 14th of March, there has been over 10,000 downloads from our official server, and up to 20,000 from across the internet, making BetterSpore the most popular mod for Spore. It has been featured in magazines, and we even had Maxis talking to us about how we balanced the gameplay (I can’t really say to much more about that though 🙂 )

So what has been happening the last few months? I have been gathering bits and pieces from some of the other modding greats to start building BetterSpore 1.6. As celebration for passing the 10,000 download mark, we are going to be releasing 6 completely new fan made parts this month.

More details on the new parts later on, but where are we heading for BS 1.6?

Well first off all, here are some of the new mods to be incorporated (partially or fully) in:

  • Cell parts extended 
  • 43 new planet decoration mod 
  • Bigger Planets 
  • Popy’s Fantastic Voyage
  • ForceSave mod
  • Star Fleet Epic Battle Mod

That is not all;, BS1.6 will include many features made especially for it, new parts, a BetterSpore compatible Epic mod and much more! There is currently no release date for BS1.6, however it will be released after Galactic Adventures, and will be made to work with GA. 

We are always looking for new modders to help us out, and anyone is welcome, just send off an email to BalLightning@gmail.com, telling us how you can help make BetterSpore better, what skills you have (sporemaster, modeling etc) and a portfolio of your work.

Keep watch on Sporedum for more information.

    This should have some kind of food management system for the civ stage, like a 4th farm structure. It could be placed in range of entertainment and housing, but putting it in line with a factory would give negative food production score due to industrial contaminants.

  6. I knew the pack was going to be release after galactic adventures before you announced it

  15. 2fast(313) said

    WEll I do hawe GA. DO they fix those parts what dont work

  16. Spitfire said

    Will most of the glitches be fixed, such as Epic Warz not being able to buy?

  17. Spitfire said

    Or is it a mod for parts?

  18. h man said

    wer is it!!!!

  19. PreLynMax said

    This mod is perfect. Ok, not perfect, but pretty close. There’s one thing I utterly cringe at on this mod is the HP. Can’t you keep the mod as is but keep the default HP for the game?

  20. 2fast(313) said

    I started to make expansion mod (jurassic spore but spore master does bot work)I still going to plan the parts and other things

    so can someone good moder make that if spore master does not work when I am planed its parts

  21. 2fast(313) said

    sorry. not (I did say bot)

  22. 2fast(313) said

    I say if its even halfready tell me

  23. Viltord said

    I did read a bug, what is very important to fix it:
    “Creatures will not be featured on Spore.com with the parts package installed, also if you use any of the new parts, your creature will not upload to the sporepedia.”
    I wish fix it, could be share the creatures with the new parts too! Thank you. I think that can be in BetterSpore 1.6.

    Is there any way to make creatures bleed when injured/dead? I think that would add a necessary bit of grit to this game (maybe have it as an optional plugin so as not to horrify the kiddies?) xxx

  25. 2fast(313) said

    is there eny vay make to cretures more realistuc attacks like jumping to big animal like raptor, or take smaller to mouth and trhow to ground, or just eat when its enough small

  26. 2fast(313) said

    and see bones if bite

  27. 2fast(313) said

    why you wont make own game it would be maybe hard but fun

  28. 2fast(313) said

    horry up!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. raycat1996 said
