Spore would've been, meh, if it weren't for Dark Injections and the rest of the Davoonline crew, especially the mind behind it all (of course, referring to your Davo). I've used various versions of Dark Injections since 2013 and was mesmerized how you could pull off what Maxis hasn't. It's disappointing to see Maxis going down to drain with each and every business decision EA takes to somehow "improve" their image and revenue. Lastly I know at this point I'm reiterating (we're all victims of this sometimes, lol
), but without these mods, Spore would've felt more empty and restricted in terms of creativity and functionality. You pretty much accomplished it, along with everyone else.
I know it's a long message, but I'm still surprised that you could accomplish this Davo. Happy B-day.
