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.

Hey, great Mod!
I love the new parts, but run into a small bug where I have a second page of all the same parts for each tab. I'm not sure what would cause this.

Also, the GUI needs some fine tuning, but overall the mod is a definite improvement on the game!

Keep up the awesome work!

It would be not recommended, we will have an official press release about that soon, but it is advised that you do not have the mod installed when installing GA, and not using it until we create a GA version.
