I know Dark Injection adds skinpaints, but I don't need everything else that comes with that. I think SporeModder can let you make new skinpaints. I would like at least 3 or 4 skinpaints, in any section(s). I'm really looking for different patterns, not colors.
Spoiler: show
Such as one of the example pictures from the SporeModder page:

So that's all I'm really looking for. New skinpaints, and possibly preview the skinpaints before you try them on, as in DI.
I'm sure everyone else would appreciate new skinpaints, too. :P

And before anyone says, "There's already a bunch of mods for that, bla bla bla, oh you can use DI for more skinpaints! Why don't you mod it yourself?" long story short, I found barely any decent working mods for skinpaints (no offense) and I don't need everything that comes with DI. I have absolutely no knowledge of how to mod in skinpaints, or any modding at all. Sorry if I sound hostile. :P

Is this some kind of sick joke?

Just turn "everything else" off. I've spent months of my time making sure that you can turn off any and/or all of Dark Injection's features, specifically to address problems exactly like this one.

Are you honestly telling me that a few CheckBoxes to untick is still too much "everything else" for your liking, or is there another problem here?

I meant the.. sigh.. Not.. that.. I meant the.. why is everything so hard to explain? I meant to say the other one by.. Davo..? I think..? the one that doesn't give those options, not the DI 9r, because that doesn't work for me, uh, the um.. Sorry. I'm kind of.. idiotic today. Yeah, so basically what I was trying to say-what I meant was the DI that was not by you, but if I remember correctly, it was by Davo, and it was regarded as not recommended, but I- (insert facepalm here) I think I'll try the newest version of DI 9r, since it says, and I quote, "Fixed game failure to start."

Sorry if I sound stupid, which I am -.-

Uh...Davo's last update, DI 9, isn't being distributed anymore. Hasn't been since 2016. It also didn't include any new skinpaints, only a few recycled from the cell and flora editors, while DI 9.r also includes a series of them ported over from Darkspore.

Don't you think it would have made more sense to post about that, rather than trying to ignore the elephant in the room?
