Ultimate Graphics Mod. Change the Spore Interface now!

Unread post by emd »

ULTIMATE GRAPHICS MOD

Tired of the monotonous and boring blue color of Spore? You like to change it to your favorite color? Now is the time!

What do this mod?

:*: Change creations that appear in the Spore menu for new ones of Sporepedia2.
:*: The most important thing, changes the color of the Spore GUI (Graphics User Interface). An example (Sorry, my Spore it's in spanish):

Image

How do I install the mod?

(I put this here because there are people who have not read how to install it and had problems. Please read this)
Alert of this installation, is a little different from a regular mod.
First, we must unpack the file. Inside, you'll see two files. We take and copy the Red_graphics.package (with the corresponding color, of course).
Now, locate the folder where you installed the Spore. Inside, you will see a folder called Data. Paste the file there.
Then copy the file Red_graphics_2. Locate the folder where you installed the Spore Galactic Adventures. Inside, you will see a folder called Data. Paste the file there.

Colors:

Pink

Yes, it refers to that. And now a list with pictures of all creations that I used:

The mods are completely secure. Well, this is it. Can you recommend colors, shapes, whatever you want: D Hope you like, when I can I will upload more. Goodbye and thank you! : bye

Something that's really bugging me about this is the name slot, its still grey. I know for a fact that it can be changed, because you can see here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n41GdUTbp0c. In this incomplete orange GUI, the naming slot has been changed. Just a recommendation, but overall the mod is good. Also, can I modify this for personal use, to make a darksporish theme? I just need the colors as refs to figure out all that I should change.

Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

Ive changed that box http://pdoogan.deviantart.com/art/quot- ... -158132693

I can't tell you the file name since there's like 20 boxes that look exactly like that, but can give you a list of the files I changed and you can compare it to the ones in this mod.

My problem with the creature on the civilization list doesn't really look like it came from the civilization stage, FYI.

Otherwise, nice job even if I don't really agree with the choice of some creatures on the cards.

I'm changing the name slot and the bottons background, xD
In DarkInjection v8.0 there is an improved DarkSpore GUI, you can modify that.

There is no need to say sorry because it's in Spanish. That's wrong. The fact that it isn't in English is what you should apologise for instead. I'm kidding of course. :lol:

Thanks for the mod, I was sick of the blue. Now I can change the colour to match my mood.

Peace.

Damn this is awesome, and doesn't look too bad either :p

I do have a personal request though, is there a way for other users to edit the colours and creation menu previews? Of course with credit to the author, I'd love to make a specialized interface for my YouTube channel but never thought it'd be possible until now
EDIT: Actually, I had forgotten. Is there also a way to change the background images within the editors? Sorry to bombard you with questions

Yes. The Red_graphics it's for editors and some buttons. The Red_graphics_2 it's for Sporepedia, and the menu. So, with SporeMaster, edit the Red_graphics_2. If you want it with the original graphics, edit Spore_EP1_Data(for the menu and Sporepedia) and Spore_Graphics.package (for the editors). But wait some days, I'm resolving some bugs.

Is it possible for it not to be a .rar file? I don't have WinRAR and I can't purchase it, and I've already used the trial. A ZIP file would work

Maybe change the thumbnails in Sporepedia so they fit better with the theme colors?

Oh, double post, but the mod doesn't change ALL elements of the UI. Check the top border.

Pro tip: If you need to be able to open .rar files, use 7zip, it's a free unzipper than can unzip .rar, .7z, and .zip archives.

@MarioBabyLuigi it's pretty difficult to get every single UI element in the game to properly use the custom UI, since it takes a long time to changed every different image needed. for something like this I'd say probably Emd is working on something better anyway :)

By that time, Mx3 hadn't discovered how to fully unpack Spore_EP1_Data, so I didn't have access to all files. This thread is really old, though. I haven't worked on the mod in forever, and doubt I'll do so again.
