Well, let's just say that ever since I started, I made a ton of mistakes to the point where I couldn't look at the whole thing properly anymore. My files are cluttered and I didn't fully plan things out. The real kicker and what made me stop is how brutal of a thing UGS was. I had to do so many tricks and exploits by hand is was tedious thing to do with each games having it's own rules and oddities to bypass, and after working on this for about three whole years of trail and error as well as repeats to get things perfect, that's saying something. The music is Spore is unlike anything out there, so to get thing perfect I had to break into the games code and do all sorts of tricks that I discovered myself, WITHOUT having anyone to help me.
The other reason for the hiatus is because of my decreasing interest in Spore, the constant frustration with the thing and moving into Five Nights at Freddy's and being active on Reddit. That's why I was absent from DAvoOnline for a very long time. As a mod, this isn't acceptable to be inactive, but to me it feels I should move on from being here due to my inactivity. one of the mods on here still kept me in touch, but that didn't fully sway me in coming back full force.
I still wish to put this all behind him so I don't need to worry about it anymore, but it's going to be hard. I lost all the music from Spore Creatures due to file corruption when I was backing up my computer and I need to redo the music in Spore Hero Arena to fully get rid of the pops and clicks, which is a tedious process, let alone crushing. Speaking of Reddit, I had some things that I needed to do, so that too got in the way.
I really want to finish UGS, but it's hard if you're the type of person that can easily lose interest and focus into things. I'll make that a priority once I'm done with the things on Reddit.
On the flipside, since UGS comes back, there will be changes happening. I planned to keep this as a surprise, but by now, I'll spill it. When UGS is done, I plan to release the music again as MP3's! EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.THEM! Initially, it was due to copyright fears from my parents, but now they don't care. So yep! You don't have to suffer from the things I've been through!
