I'm not sure what you're referring to. As I said, if you want to uninstall the Dark Injections editor background, you gotta use ModAPI's Easy Uninstaller. Again, you'd be better off asking in the Dark Injections thread, as this thread is for a different mod entirely.

Anyway, here's a video of my current progress on Paranoid_Modder's request!

Yes, they are only testdrive backgrounds. they surely would be usable for build and paint mode as well but this mod doesn't allow that.

Ooookay so! I've decided to go and pretty much overhaul the space/nebulae background I've been working on. I've ditched the use of Spore textures for this one because they have a nauseatingly small resolution and looked like a mess sorta haphazardly strewn about the scenery. Instead, I've gone the cheap route and used ~stock images~ from a couple of different free CC0 image sites. I've found that this way I get much higher-resolution images that don't look abysmal in my background, and my result much more closely resembles Paranoid Modder's example images!

Paranoid, you did seem to really like the original version I did, and I feel a bit like a dummy for not saving a copy of that version, but I hope this version works better for you or at least as good as the first. :)
(I can redo the first version if you prefer that though! I still have the texture files I used for it.)

Oooh it’s no problem at all! I actually like this one much better. You did well by using other textures then the spore ones. Really nice job!

These are awesome!
If you're open to suggestions, how about making the nest from Spore creatures?

Ohhh I like this idea a lot! Especially since I played Spore Creatures for DS before I got the main game. It would be great if I could find ripped assets from the game somewhere but I doubt it, and recreating it myself will likely be no problem at all.

Hello everyone! It's been a while and I really should've finished this update long ago, but I lose interest in this project every now and then. But, I know I'll always come back to it later. Today I've updated this mod, coincidentally on the first anniversary of it being posted here!

Here is a link to the updated mod, now on Google Drive instead of Mediafire at the request of Enderjed.

Thank you dearly, beacause mediafire typicly sends me scareware, and Using google drive prevents me having a panic attack, so thank you

Oh I am sorry to hear that! I haven't encountered this issue myself, but that may likely be because I am using an ad blocker. Are you using an ad blocker? Malware and scareware can in fact be transmitted through adverts simply loading on a page, unfortunately. This has happened to me in the past, even on reputable websites.

If you're still taking suggestions, I'd love to see some of the areas from Spore Hero. It was my introduction to the series and it has a very special space in my heart.
I'd specifically really like to see Moonlight Stoneway or Creature Beach, but any work!

I had a couple of ideas for some new backgrounds, if you don't mind me sharing them ^^
My first idea is a very small scene - or even shrink a copy of the original vanilla background, with the idea of making the creature in test drive feel larger/like an epic.
Another idea is some kind of graveyard setup - I'm imagining something like the elephant graveyard in The Lion King, dark and spooky.
Something more on the abstract side - Perhaps something taken out from the galaxy ascension cut-scene you experience when meeting Steve.

Heh...that sounds kinda like the trick I used to visually differentiate the three Plant Editor variants in Branching Evolution...

Hi, I was just wondering if there's a version of this mod that only includes official Spore backgrounds or unused ones? I think you did a great job on the custom backgrounds, but I'm more of a vanilla Spore kinda guy!
