Spore crashes at startup

Forum rules
BEFORE YOU POST...

Remember that all mods available here REQUIRE Spore: Galactic Adventures AND patch 5.1. Patch 6\Bot Parts does NOT include Patch 5.1! (Some may work on other setups, but this is recommended)

Can't get a mod to work? Feel free to ask for help, there's always someone around to help out. Just make sure to include the following information:
a) Did you install Spore from Steam, Origin, or a Disk?
b) Is your game patched to the latest version?
c) Do you have Galactic Adventures?
d) If so, is it also patched to the latest version?
e) Where did you install the mod to?
f) What is the file's current name in the folder you installed it to?
This information is needed for us to help you!

At least the one I use, but lately I've been using SporeMaster because it organizes things better.

Started crashing again and it's really starting to get on my nerves >:( Here is my data folder after attempting to fix things up. I think it might have something to do with spore mod API but, I'm not sure what. When I add any .package files the game no longer functions even when the package files are removed the game still crashes afterwards (unless reinstalled). It's as if it's trying to stop me from using both .package and .sporemod files because only one at a time works. Also, should I contact the creator of the Spore mod API about this?

uhm your data folders seem to be fine what I can see. Does it crash both when using the normal Spore and ModAPI one or just one of them?

Any change to other applications running while trying to open the game? Try closing everything before opening Spore, see if that helps.

Reinstalled the game and found that whenever I use Spore mod API it permanently breaks the game until reinstalled. That's a shame, infinite colors was awesome :( .

Not sure what you mean. The install location I am using is just the default recommended install location.
