Hello fellow spore lovers. Sadly we have moved on from this game. However we have made an index of all the content on this website for your easy convenience, though mods are no longer supported by us. We now also have a Youtube channel focusing on geek parody music videos including Doctor Who, The Hobbit and Game of Thrones videos. Check out this video, and if you enjoy, please subscribe!

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.
With 1.5.1, just replace your old package files with the new ones. Read the readme for more info.

How to Install BetterSpore safely
The next step is to install the mod as explained in the “How to Install Mods” section. Start up your game and start a new game. Make sure when using the mod you only use save games which you started when you had BetterSpore, and you remove the mod when playing any other saves.
Q: There were parts advertised in the trailer which never made it in, why so?
A: We removed the parts we made because it did not live up to our standards, and are not yet ready to be used. We decided not to delay BetterSpore to get these parts working. We will try to create an updated version of the BetterSpore_parts.package in the coming weeks for you to use these new parts.
Q: Why aren’t my creatures saving?
A: For some reason, some of the parts do not save. This is why we included the Spore Editor Hack (Made by RamonNZ), which allows you to “Force Save” your creations, for more on how to do it please read the Readme.
Q: What is Maxis’s position on mods, and will my online experience be affected?
A: Maxis is fine with the modding community existing, and we have talked a few times, however they do not provide support for mods. The only effect on your online experience is that all creatures which use the complexity packages or the new parts (grox/cell included) will not upload.
Q: I’m not to sure about using this mod, it could be dangerous, or contain viruses.
A: Wait a few days, come back on and see what the comments are (also look through the BetterSpore forum).
