Yes I have a Steam version. No, I'm not going to switch it over to an Origin install, if you can't program the thing to work with every legal version then that is on you. I have both expansion packs. And I'm running Win10. The thing randomly works. Right after I originally posted this it worked again. But after I closed out the game we where back to the same old spam of errors.

Actually no, it's not "on us" that the DRM used by Steam Spore interferes with the process. I've been looking for potential ways to overcome this since the problems first became known, and I'm still looking for such a solution...though at this point, the likelihood of that ever happening seems to grow slimmer with every passing day. Reality is, if you want this to work right now, you shouldn't be using the Steam version of the game. I don't like it any more than you do, but at least for the time being, that's how it is...in spite of our best efforts.

We don't support piracy. Go buy the game.

EDIT: I'd recommend not buying it on Steam if you want any of this to actually work.

Is there a version that doesn't require Galactic Adventures?

It implies you have to dispatch the game utilizing the Spore ModAPI launcher rather than from steam. web designer in sharjah The reason being Dark infusion's fresher variants utilizes ModAPI to do some stuff so it can't work without it.

Ever since the March 2017 patch, we've needed GA to modify certain files.
So unfortunately, that will never happen unless EA releases a patch to remove this weird behaviour.

Vanilla, none of that has anything to do with the Spore ModAPI. Please check your facts before responding.

Reality is, the necessary research to create the Spore ModAPI Development Kit is and continues to be a massive undertaking. Supporting Core Spore would double this workload. That just isn't fair to Emd, especially considering how small the market for Core Spore-compatible mods is. As such, he decided to only support GA, and I'm completely with him on that decision. Without Core Spore support from the Spore ModAPI Development Kit, the Spore ModAPI Launcher is incapable of being made compatible with Core Spore, and as such, there's really no reason for the Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit as a whole to provide mod installation support for Core Spore either. If you want to use mods, you'd be best off to just buy GA. (But not on Steam)
