I have both Spore and GA on disk and I bought them + CC on Steam a while ago because I thought I lost my copies in a move, but it turned out I didn't xD. Unfortunately I couldn't sync it up with my Origin account OR my Spore account. Can't even log into the official forum with my Spore account (they say it doesn't really exist, which is a bummer). I guess it's only offline spore for me. And no, EA Help is of, well, no help for me. Live Chat literally doesn't work (it just searches endlessly for someone to talk to me), and the help forums weren't useful and just redirected me to a FAQ which didn't even have an answer for my problem.
Anyway, now that I'm coming back to it I'm tempted to get mods, but as I found out they don't work with Steam because of the way Steam installs files. So I looked at the steam version of the Spore files and how they're arranged differently and I got an idea: What if I rearrange the files so that they're precisely like the way the disk and Origin installs them? Would the mods work out that way?
Well, I wanna know if anyone has tried it and if it worked or just corrupted everything. Also if anyone would like to help I'd like prints of how the files are organized, for those of you who have it installed through disk/Origin, so I can mimick them ^^
I need images of the main folder and images of the files inside each folder. You can blur out everything on the address tab if you feel like it, but leave out the names of the spore folders so i don't have to play guessing game hahaha
Thanks in advance!
also I have this weird urge to bold-out key info in my posts so that people can skim through it easier x.x

Go to Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Spore > DataEP1, you should drop your mods in the DataEP1 folder, not their parent .zip files, but the .package files.
Also, rearranging the files will break your game, so don't actually do it. And Steam works with mods just as fine as Origin does.

That having been said, we've fairly recently learned how to update mods to work on both, so as time goes on, that will change.

Well then that's a bummer :/ Do you have a list of which mods already work on Steam? Other than that, I guess I'll just wait a while until everything is up to date ^^
