My creature is frozen? Help!

Unread postby HumbleYumble » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:33 pm

I was editing my creature in creature editor and all of the sudden i noticed my creature stopped moving. I then decided that it would be a good idea to save my work. I saved then clicked on test drive mode and then my entire game just froze. I couldnt click on anything and i ended up alt-tab end program. I rebooted Spore GA and went to my creations tab; i then noticed that the creature i saved had a invisible thumb nail. I still went and proceeded to loading my creature, when i loaded my creature it was still frozen and whenever i go into test drive mode it would freeze up my entire game. Please someone help?

Yeah thats a easy simple fix but its already happened twice. I am not about to let it happen it the third time; so i was just wondering if it was some sort of bug, or even better something i can avoid/fix?

It's happened to me before when I overloaded my creature with colored knurl downs. It's probably just the complexity of the creature being too high.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.

I see, i had a feeling that was the reason. I just didnt really believe it since i had the unlimited complexity mod which to my knowledge was integrated into Dark Injection 8.0; as well as seeing other people's creatures that had hundreds of parts still be perfectly fine (except the loading time). Is there a special workaround you know CamBen? A method that you would use to create a creature with many-extreme amount of parts? For now I just try to save as frequently as possible.

My advice is: make your creature, then take off some of the less important parts that are not as noticeable. Also you can make your creature on a smaller scale, which uses less parts.

any chance you started a game using the creature?
the quality of creatures drop in game compared to the editors.
