INFINITE COLORS: Enhanced Color Picker

Does Spore not have that one color you wanted? Tired of having awkwardly-grouped brightness/saturation variants? This mod is for you!

Image

The numbers are clear:



SPORE 735 colors
THIS MOD 16777216 colors


That’s 22826 times more colors -> Image



This mod uses the new modding tool, Spore ModAPI. Therefore, it requires:

  • Image: Galactic Adventures.
  • Image: 1.05.0001 Patch (aka asymmetry patch) or greater.

INSTALLATION



Using this mod is very simple, just follow some steps:

  1. Download the Spore ModAPI.
  2. Download this mod here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/t37t0coy1 ... r.sporemod
  3. In the “Spore ModAPI Launcher” folder you downloaded, execute the Image Easy Installer.
  4. A file chooser dialog will be shown. Find the “SPORE MOD – Enhanced Color Picker.sporemod” file you downloaded, select it, and click OK.

And we’re done! Now, to use the mod, don’t forget you have to run the Image Spore ModAPI Launcher!

Attempted to install it the first time around, messed up my UI/performance and had to reinstall. Does this conflict with any mods by any chance?

Not as far as I know. I'm really sorry it broke your game. Did it still happen if you opened the game normally (without using the launcher)?

This actually help me not just adding custom colors, but to be able to play spore in 1920x1080 because I have a huge Monitor, without this mod, the Color palettes are cut off in the editors and if I lower the resolution it makes the Color palettes normal but makes the game look like crap, now thanks with this mod, now i'm able to play spore in high def without running into problems with the color palettes, Thank you!

You should make it so that you can use the color picker with the space stage paint tools. Then I can get the exact color for my homeworld.

Maybe You Should Stop Capitalising The Start Of Every Word.

In all seriousness, it's not correct grammar.
Just another fellow user.

It's possible to improve Spore's graphics using Reshade. I'm planning a V0.2 public release soon

Extremely impressive mod, I know a lot of modders would never have thought this was possible. Wonder why Maxis didn't include it in the first place, really; they did it for Sims 3.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

I installed this after installing Dark Injection and when I went to edit colors, the paint mode's name was listed as "***" and it lagged really hard with a delay of about 30 seconds. I quickly switched back to edit mode and tried to save my creation. My game froze for several minutes before saving, even though the creation wasn't especially part-heavy. Even beginning to load colors takes an unreasonably long time--in vanilla spore the beginning of the colors loading is signaled by the creature turning into the base color, and this also did not happen for several minutes--in fact, I'm still waiting.

EDIT: Trying to enter test mode crashed the game.

EDIT2: Maybe unrelated, but the creature did not actually save even though the game said it did

Odd. I and many others have used it, with and without DI, with no issues... :thonk:

You probably just forgot to give it a name before saving.

I did name the creature, on further investigation I found out it had corrupted while saving.

Although other creatures have not corrupted, it's still taking much longer than usual to save creatures of ordinary complexity levels. It's making me very nervous.

I'm not entirely sure what to suggest at this point...that having been said, I've mentioned it to Emd, so hopefully he'll be able to help you out soon enough.

I use a Mac and can not use the Spore API for this mod, do you have a .package file I could download?

No, you have to use the Spore ModAPI Launcher. Mods like this one cannot take the form of an isolated .package file.
