Spore 2? Better ideas?

Post your mod requests/ideas here, not in with the actual mods.
NOTE: We can't add "new" functionality, so if there's nothing in Spore that can already do it, we probably can't do it either. That's a bit of an overgeneralization, but still a valid rule of thumb...

Spore 2? Better ideas?

Unread postby Troz » Wed Jul 06, 2016 1:45 pm

What should be added in spore.
1. Climbing on tree mode? It would be more realistic and fun than only jumping on them.
2. In old spore, twe were able to move killed prey.
3. Better graphics/shading?
4. More realistic running and sounds.
5. Water stage ( probally was on spore beta ).
6. Better flying mode ( can go auto up or down when pressing buttons )
7. Online! :D

Are at least some of them possible?

Nope

In theory, yes. But in practice, there is currently no way of doing it - Spore's shader format is incredibly complicated. To this day, it has even Emd stumped D:

In theory yes. Good luck finding the sounds to replace and ones to replace them with, though.

No. Unless you count TitanMods's attempt at reworking the creature stage into some crude likeness of it, but I doubt that would really do it. It isn't really the aquatic stage, it's just a creature stage with some major cosmetic tweaks.

Not happening

...what do you mean? .-.

Just imagining.. Since spore is using OpenGL

Can't we somehow make the graphics engine of spore READ glsl code and replicate it sort of virtually into the graphics engine?
Just another fellow user.

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

No it doesn't, it uses DirectX.

Well in theory maybe, but in practice? Probably not. Given the amount of RE needed, I think it'd be easier to convert to Spore's native shader format, and that's beyond even Emd.

Spore doesn't use OpenGL, it uses DirectX (and so it doesn't use GLSL, but HLSL instead). The shaders themselves are just in shader assembly (a format that lots of programs can decode). The problem is that all shaders are put in one single file which we don't know how to read, and so we don't know how to extract them and put our own shaders.

Anyways, usually graphics improvements need to pass new parameters to the shaders, and for that the entire game has to be modified.

ideas:
Multiplayer,
modes for different stages, like (epic mode for creature stage),
more abilities, for example the ability to go under water as a creature
