Cell stage UI is shifted/in pieces?

Unread postby Sigur » Wed Jan 18, 2017 1:51 pm

The entire UI of the entire Cell Stage (health bars, call mate button, progress bar, EVERYTHING) is completely wrecked. I'll have to screenshot it when I get home (I'm having a bit of leisure time at school right now, just long enough to post something) and while it isn't hindering my ability to COMPLETE cell stage, it is driving the OCD side of my brain up the wall. I'd have gotten to this report earlier, except I usually just "evoadvantage" and start out in Creature stage with my favorite creations.

Got the image. What do you make of this? I don't know what could possibly be wrong here...

EVERYTHING is glitching up lately, honestly. My favorite centaur creature suddenly had its mouth turn into a square and it might have something to do with me removing the Dark Genetics package because I think the mouth was one of the voiceless ones.

Doesn't mean it's automatically all DI's fault...not saying nothing is, but I know Dark Genetics is the cause of that Cell Stage UI issue...

Yeah that'd do it.


In any case, DI will (eventually .-. ) cover the Cell Stage's UI, so that won't be an issue forever :lol:

You're the best, rob. Making an awesome mod, doing awesome things, being an awesome tolerant person.

I gotta actually re-download Dark Genetics, though, I deleted it but I need it to recover all the creatures I messed up by deleting it...

...yeah this is why I usually just store my uninstalled mods in my "Origin Games" folder in case I need them later...that's why we still have DarksporeTemplate v2 floating around, actually.

Wait, if the UI is doing that WITHOUT Dark Genetics installed, maybe it WON'T do it once I DO install it?

No...uh, let me explain the issue. So in every version of Spore and GA prior to Patch 5, the Cell Stage's SPUI uses an atlas image laid out like this:
Image
But in Patch 5, for seemingly no reason at all, the SPUI was updated to use a completely different image, laid out like this:
Image
And both images use the same file name. The problem occurs because, again for seemingly no reason at all, Dark Genetics replaces the new image with the old one, but doesn't replace the SPUI, meaning that the new SPUI is now using the old image. But the SPUI is in charge of the UV coordinates, so it takes pieces of UI from the same places of the image as it otherwise would...except now the image doesn't line up with that anymore, creating this strange problem you've encountered. So uninstalling Dark Genetics would correct the issue, unless another mod you have installed has the same problem, but reinstalling Dark Genetics would cause the problem to reappear either way.

R.I.P. every creature I made using Dark Genetics. I liked that soundless mouths feature. It's fun to put a bird beak on something and give it the carnivore voice.

No need, just install this mod I just threw together a mod that does nothing but re-add the correct texture.
