I don't know too much about any mods or config file tweaks for this, but I do know of a cheat that does this! Just type the following command in the cheat console:

Code: Select all

highrestexturelevel high

Unfortunately, it resets itself to default quality once you restart Spore, so you'll have to input it again every time, but it works.

you could try one of 2 things, but only if that command is also somewhere in a config file or is able to be used as a game state or something:
make a batch file that resets that config tweak and then starts spore
or
make the file that contains it read-only

otherwise, if it does only exist in the console as a cheat/command, then those won't work and I don't know.

Yeah I know, that's what the accompanying mod is for.

I linked to a Tweak and a Mod in the same post. The mod does what the Tweak doesn't. Install both for maximum effect.

there i found nothing -_-

let me be more specific
the only link you provided here in this post, leads to a post in the official spore forums
be that my configurations or what, it leads me to one page, where i cant find anything more than several answers featuring different conffigurations for the "tweak", and given it is literally, thousands of pages , i cant just "search" the entire place
if you could link directly the mod, or point me what page it is on, or anything, i would be very grateful, but as it is right now, i cand find it

The Davoonline link leads to a specific post on the Sporum, which in turn contains the mod in a link, and the tweak in a quote. Try reading that post and clicking the link.

I just checked the link you posted rob, I can't find the mod either. Mind posting the actual direct link to the mod?
