Longtime Spore player. Recently had a major life event giving me much more 'free' time then I've had for years. As such I've started playing a lot more and have found these mods to be awesome. I look to take up a new hobby in life like modding and have two that come to mind with Spore.
1. I would like to be able to have a mod or ability to 'choose' which location starting systems are. Ex. want to be in the core? or near the farthest reaches (outer rim type thing). Essentially the ability to choose where a species save game starts.
2. The ability to 'purchase' ally ship slots, including the ability to purchase allied ships from ones 'own' race from colonies. With this mod it would be worthwhile increasing the size of the allied fleet as well. Shocked this wasn't just in the vanilla game. Or maybe this could be implemented by altering the 'mini u' attribute Knights get in space.
Would love to see how/ if this is implemented. Spore has so much potential as a 'political' and 'combat' game alongside the 'artsy' style. I'm sure the game itself has limitations.
Pardon if I am ranting on meds that make me feel a lot different lol.
