Super Comlpex creatures crashing game to desktop

Unread postby MrGodzilla445 » Thu Aug 14, 2014 4:23 pm

Every creature I make that's really complex cause the game to flat out close to desktop when I preview them. I really don't think it has anything to do with what my computer can handle because I can run Skyrim with Sharpahooters ENB no problem. If anyone can help, I'd very much appreciate it, thank you.

Are the creatures that are super complex freezing up in the editor after a while and playing no animations? Because at that point, any creature you save will be too complex for spore to handle.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

By super complex I mean above the standard limit. I'm not even capable of viewing it anymore. If I'm in the Sporepedia and click the preview ". . ." button it immediately crashes to desktop saying "SporeApp.exe has stopped working."

So, the game crashes at that point if you've exceeded normal complexity by a single Shellshard? If so, see if the problem continues if you uninstall Dark Injection and go crazy with the Freedom cheat.

It Doesn't do it with all my above limit creations, just two.

Well there goes everything I thought I'd figured out about this problem. I don't know why it would help, but my instincts are reccommending this. Make necessary backups and try it.

Turned out to be that I had my graphics cache set way too high, but sadly it only worked for the creation I showed you in the video, my Godzilla still crashes the game.
