How do you change the PNG of a creation?

You can find everything you need from tutorials to mods for Spore and Galactic Adventures. Hundreds of mods are stored here from the downfall of Sporedum.net, including a variety of mods that I have created. Also, you can discover ways to create creatures you thought were impossible using tutorials from DarkEdgeTV. If you need a place to store your mods, you've come to the right place!

How do you change the PNG of a creation?

I've seen deliberate changes of a PNG on Spore.com, as well as an accidental one, perhaps a glitch:

That thing you posted was a PNG rendering issue that was fixed in later patches.

I never tried changing PNGs of creations before, but you can do it in a picture editor. I highly recommend you use Paint.NET if you want to try it out.

That is something different I'm pretty sure, but anyway editing the png is pretty easy. Just open up editorsaves.package, find your creature png files, modify them, then save them. Then pack editorsaves as a new mod with only that file inside

So in essence there will be two EditorSaves.package....one untouched and one with the modified PNG?

Yes, but in the modified one you can use it Asa regular mod. Also before messing with it, make a backup. Anyway for the modified one you can delete any other file/folder you aren't using since its an override.
