unfortunately making the Right side model for certain parts has been a challenge for me... I intentionally replaced the "Trunky mouth" because it messes up any creature that uses it..

I might try to remake the "Nifty foot" too..

The problem with me making digitigrade feet (even though I love them so much) is the fact that I can't get my feet parts to stay on the ground.. They seem to sink into the ground after a certain point.

I know.. but somehow if my foot is too tall, it sinks into the ground within the game..
I only model the Foot part anyways because I know people can make digitigrade limbs.

This mod would be great if the textures weren't just black with whatever base color you choose.

It's not a bug. I didn't have the mod for long, so I just watched the showcased parts and noticed it.

The parts just appear black with base color, and I really don't like that. It's just so off-putting that I was hesitant to use them, especially when said black colors are just pure black. On the first mouth, the inside looked too pinkish to be natural, and then the rest were either normal or pure black as well.

It's a shame too, I actually liked how some of them are animated. I've never seen anyone capable of making a mouth that can shoot it's tongue out.

just letting you know that the black bits don't show up in Creature Stage or paint mode. It only appears in the editor.

Take your time, since you have already released the mod in (somewhat?) stable state and showed us how amazing it is. I suggest you to focus on fixing the current issues to make a stable version, then add new parts and release it as a "beta" version where people can test them and give feedback, but if they wish a bug-free mod, they can use the stable one.

Also, the mod that adds more parts is something every spore fan has been dreaming of. But everyone has been focusing on creature editor, I was wondering if I could make a mod that adds parts for vehicles, spaceships and buildings (and probably new outfits for tribal, civilization and colony). And because your mod inspires so much, may I ask, how do you exactly make the parts and test them in game? Do you use blender and SporeModder?

I tested out your mod now and its really cool, I was able to make this creature using some of your parts. The small spikes behind his head that move on their own is an amazing touch, and I like that a lot.
Image
However, I found some issues, figured out would be good to let you know about 'em so you can fix them in future:
-Seems to happen only to left one. It gave me an idea of similar wings with holes in them, that provide no flight and are purely cosmetic
Image
-Not symmetrical like rest of feet parts
Image
-These feet float above the ground and create a weird, wide gap between them
Image
-Wings seem broken. They are symmetric, but on opposite axis or something
Image
-I wouldn't call this a bug, but more of an anomaly, because I feel like the rotation ring should be in same axis/direction as the part, and not on side. It was somewhat tricky working with it, but I managed to place it upright, mainly using the directional sphere.
Image
And finally, most of part icons are replaced with either your mod's logo or with white square. As much as I understand, the icons are screenshots of the part models from a specific angle, right?
