Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit

Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit

The Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit is a toolkit which allows mods to influence Spore's code, granting mod developers greater control over Spore and its behaviour.

It requires legally-purchased versions of both Spore and Spore Galactic Adventures and atleast Patch 1.5.1 to be installed.

Installing mods

  1. Open the Spore ModAPI Easy Installer
  2. Locate your desired mod:
  3. Click "Open"
  4. Profit

Uninstalling mods

  1. Open the Spore ModAPI Easy Uninstaller
  2. Select your undesired mod(s):
  3. Click "Uninstall Selected"
  4. Profit


As with any software, you should only download mods from trustworthy sources. If unsure, ask around.

Notice to Steam Spore users

The Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit has, on numerous occasions, proven extremely unreliable with the Steam version of Spore. As such, if you're thinking of buying Spore, it is strongly recommended to buy it either from Origin, GOG instead of Steam. Even the retail version is preferable if you don't mind being locked out of online features. If you already own the game on Steam, it is recommended to transfer your Steam Spore keys to Origin (which is free), then backup your creations and save data, uninstall the Steam version of Spore, and then install the Origin version in its place. I'm sorry I don't have a better solution to offer.

Investigation into a proper fix is ongoing, though remains fruitless thus far. Don't hold your breath.
