[REQUEST GRANTED] Adding Legs to the Early Creature Editor?

Unread postby pacguy64 » Fri Dec 05, 2014 1:21 pm

The Early Creature editor is amazing IMO, it has all my favorite parts and is the editor I'm sure I use most often. However, there's' an issue that always bugged me; it only has 3 kinds of legs. Even though most early creatures can be made, shared, and properly pollinated and recognized as early creatures with other core spore legs, they don't appear in the menu, limiting the creative options, and forcing the player to either A. make them from scratch using the "ctrl" key (which never looks right), or B. make an early creature, load it in the main creature editor, add your custom legs, then hope that you didn't use up too much money and make the game fail to consider it as an early creature. I can't imagine this being too difficult to accomplish, the Early creature editor parts pallet has been altered before, and the parts I want it to have already have a defined parts panel.

The ctrl think looks fine when I do it. Are you insulting my modeling skills?

Obviously not. He was criticizing spore's lack of diversity in the cell-to-creature leg selection.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

pacguy said that the ctrl key thing never turns out looking ok. I think that fall under that catagory.

That is in regard to MY SKILLS, not yours. Keep in mind that this was my personal mod request.
