Having some weird issues with eye textures on some of the core parts.
I'm using the default DI Textures (not Core textures) and Dark Genetics.
However both versions of the same eye it seems will have strange colouring, missing pupils or irises etc.
Is there a way to correct these?

First question: did you move and rename all the files properly, as said in the dark genetics description?

the DI textures are in one of the BP folders. renamed as ZZZ in the front like the Genetics instructions state.

Try renaming your dark genetics mod package to be over the load order of dark injection. Add some _s, a's, or 0's to the front of the mod name and sort files by name until DG is prioritized before DI.

So I'm trying to do what I proposed earlier and have no idea how to do it.

I'm trying to keep the core Spore parts untouched (no DS positioning/textures, icons in tact) and having seperate pages for the DS versions after the normal ones. Any idea how to do that?

Also thanks Rob for the DS tip! Now I have to remake all my heros. Bellbottoms are sooooooooooo out this year.

Wait, in spore or darkspore? Because dark genetics paired with dark injection does pretty much just that.

In Spore. I mean just the DS parts alongside the core untouched Spore parts. No abilities or anything.

EMD has a tutorial on how to repack .rw4 files.

you would need to rename the DS model folder and recall all models from a whole new set of parts...

i did the mouths and then said screw this.
too many files and not enough time in my life...

DI is too big for its own good...
and with our lack of a proper naming system, it just blows my mind everytime...
it was to the point i sighed everytime i opened it...

i love the mod and where it was going, but it is just a cluster...

What I did for dark genetics:
Import all of the core spore part files and textures
Copied the part files again
I used a bulk renamer tool on all of the core spore part files that I imported, and added the prefix DG_ and removed Copy of
Search for all .txt files in the texture folders and deleted them
Notepad++ to find and replace in files, removed the cached name setting and added the dg_ prefix onto left and right files.
Manually renamed all the parts
Copied over core spore part pages, renamed them, manually put in all the part names
Manually changed part texture files on unchanged parts in photoshop

Dark coloration parts finished.

Get the original copy of the spore texture files I originally imported
Moved them all to part_skin_textures_2
Move all original part files to a temporary folder
Used notepad++ to change all references of part_skin_textures~ to part_skin_textures_2

Normal coloration parts finished

No I already did that. What I was doing was giving them the special personalized names they have in the final mod.

I suppose this was answered but I am quite new to this and looked everywhere, the glitch is noticeable a lot and I haven't found an answer, and I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but how do you fix the camera centering glitch? I can't find it anywhere, and if you do, thanks.

After a long hiatus I'm getting back into Spore again, largely in part to discovering Dark Genetics recently.
However I'm finding that although I love each mod individually, they aren't interacting as nicely as I'd like. :(

So I'm trying to make an attempt to tweak and combine the few mods I'm using, and I'm having some trouble identifying files. I'm starting with Dark Injection itself right now, trying to make my own middle-ground with all the functional features like unlimited complexity and extended bounds in the NC version, but strip out the alternate editor styles and return those editor backgrounds back to their default appearance.

Made one attempt so far, but somehow did the exact opposite. >_< All the files that I found were different all seemed to have to do with parts instead of the editor backgrounds. I was using MOBZync to compare the two versions after unpacking them with SporeMaster 2.0 beta.

I'm not asking anyone to do it for me (but I did see some of you might be planning on making your own editions of DI), but if anyone can help point me in the right direction of which files I'm looking for, I'd be extremely grateful. :oops:
