oh ok, so if i uninstall and reinstall spore, put in my mods, and THEN move over saves and creations, i should be fine?

Should be, just be sure to make a copy of your creations and saves before uninstalling. You never know when the installer might screw up and delete those even though you said not to. (Happened to me once, and I've heard I'm not the only one...)

i have my old disc with all my backups, so no worries there >:) one last question, should i transfer over the GraphisCache.package file from my old spore directory? I know its not needed as the game can easily recreate all the 3d models from png, but i was unsure with the modded creations.

I don't really know how to properly answer a question based on such a false assumption, so instead, just do this:
Once you have the game, DLCs, and mods installed successfully, load your creations in, then run the game once. Then close it and swap out the newly-generated Galaxy for your old Galaxy. You should be good to go at that point.

Why would I know of a fix for a problem that, to the best of my awareness, doesn't exist?

use the DI Configurator. It's accessible via the ModAPI Easy Uninstaller.

If you upgraded from a previous build of DI, the installer probably just maintained your previous configuration. Install 2.1.6 again, but this time, click "Default Configuration" before clicking "Install". Let me know if that does it.

Everything else works fine (i think. I havent tested it thouroughly) but I really miss the infinite complexity

Okay I'm on a terrible network right now, part of me is wondering if the page only half loaded. In any case, sorry about that.

In any case, DI isn't even installed, going off of those screenshots...

...did you previously have Spore installed in another location, perhaps?

It seems to only install the Arenas packages and not the mod itself. I will attempt to do the manual install with all the individual files. Unless of course I am overlooking something terribly obvious.
