Re: How to create new Spore part models (animated parts!)

I made a good spore part, but it's not importing into the project properly. I triangulated the mesh, normalized all weights, added keyframes to each bone in each frame (though that really intuitively doesn't at all seem like what I should do, are you sure you can't phrase it better?), added material...

Re: How to create new Spore part models (animated parts!)

Okay...I still have no remote idea what to do once I have a rw4 file because the SporeModder only opens package files and for some reason there's 0 instructions anywhere on how to write a properties file for this spore, it's not something you can just randomly guess at and hope to get right, not th...

Re: How should I rig something so it both animates in the game but also allows morphs in the creature editor?

Part models don't have idle animations. Feet do, however, have an animation for bending as the creature walks, so...there's that. No idea what the hash is for that animation though. (Good news though: that animation is optional...heck, limbs are the only type of model which needs any kind of animat...

How should I rig something so it both animates in the game but also allows morphs in the creature editor?

I have a foot I'm designing in blender and I'm just about ready to rig it. But, I figured that to make it truly suitable for spore that I should include morph options to change the shape and size in the creature editor. Most of what I want to change is just the length of the claws and toe length, bu...

Re: Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

Another thing too: how does the game smooth the models? Because in blender, I can subdivide the surface a few times to make something look smooth like it does in the game, or I can use the "smooth shading" option in object view. Will spore automatically apply its own smooth shading or do I...

Re: Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

For some reason the page that had all the information I was looking for somehow vanished from the website. It had nearly all the instructions but now there's just a mostly vague page that only gives the basic installation process. I have no idea how to make it so that a model has those morph arrows ...

Re: How to create new Spore part models (animated parts!)

What do I do with a part after I've exported it from blender? There's no .rw4 file extension in any of the spore folders.

Re: Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

Alright, and for the UV maps, does it need to be that really basic smoothly connected UV map like in the tutorial or can I define the seams and have different parts scattered about? As far as I know, Spore uses a package file format to install new parts, but I do not see the addon exporting as a pac...

Re: Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

Steam isn't letting me add you, so you can add me at Chenjesu or the account name Melenorme. I'm not optimistic though, you're not doing anything "for me" you're doing it for the community because it's unrealistic to expect to pump out a wide variety of parts if there's only one person doi...

Re: Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

Wow. That was completely un-called for.. What's uncalled for is when you disrespect a random person you've never met. Give a man a fish? That's so condescending for someone who just said they would make models, rig them, animate them and texture them for free, that's a line you give to someone who'...

Anyone wanna work with me to create a new set of public/custom parts?

I do 3D modeling for engineering purposes, but I was glancing over my old games and I found one of my favorites: you guessed it. I remember that I really liked how (almost) smoothly dark spore injection installed and doubled or trippled the amount of parts available, so I thought something fun to wo...
