Seeking Help for with Recovering Old Creations

Unread postby aharttsx » Tue Apr 16, 2019 11:52 pm

Greetings,
So its been several years since I've played this game and decided to reinstall it to mess around with again. I had back ups of the "My Spore Creations" folder and Games and whatnot that were originally on other older systems. However, when I boot up the game, there are a number of my creations that do not show up in "My Creations" tab. Some of them do show up in "Recent Downloads", though still others - including several of my main captains, do not show up anywhere at all.

When I check 'My Spore Creations' folder, I see the .png's/.gifs for all of them, but they just won't show up in-game at all. Anyone have any ideas on how I can at least get my captains and stuff back, and if possible, to get the creations present only in "Recent Downloads" as My Creations? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you still have the old systems? If so, transfer Pollination.package and EditorSaves.package from %appdata%\ from the old system to the new system
Creator of Solar Spore, Adventure Water and Spaceplanes.

My main account broke a while ago, so I created this alt.

This worked, thank you! Thankfully I do still have the harddrives from those old systems along with a docking station to access them. I completely forgot about files being hidden in appdata lol.
