2 comments by BalLightning on Jun 2nd, 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?

We 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 or Sporemods for more information. And there will be some images coming soon.
