Are there going to be any tutorials on how to use this thing?

Technically SporeMaster and SpView can already be used to import creations into a 3D Modeling tool, but SporeModder will be less of a hassle to use for this porpose.

If all else fails, I plan to write a few tutorials, in the hopes of reducing the odds of aspiring developers being discouraged early on by the confusing, counterintuitive process. It gets easier with practice...and with SporeModder :lol:

Now, as for your mention of porting Spore Creatures to the Source engine...

Sorry, I just had to :lol:

You don't happen to have spent any effort modding...Super Mario Galaxy 2, have you? *Blankly staring at the pathetically low odds of meeting a fellow SMG2 hacker in a context of Spore*

WHAT THE... How did you put a spore creature into TF2 like that?

Colladaexport + a few too many hours spent messing around in Blender + Blender Source Tools + CrowBar = The answer to your question :lol:

I don't mod Super Mario Galaxy 2. :/ It feels like every game is a new language to learn, so getting into them is hard. I don't even know programming; I just follow tutorials by other people. :oops: Especially the console ones. I'm not that interested in modding Galaxy 2 UNLESS you can replace enemies and stuff with Spore creatures and hack the music! :lol:

Oh, those look hilarious, lol! Creatures from an all-you-can-create game into another all-you-can-create game (and Team Fortress 2)! My intention was to turn my old favorite creatures into ragdolls (even the crappy earlier creations) and pose them (and my Spore Mario creatures) next to the "original" Mario ragdolls. Yes, I have talent to create functional ragdolls with face-posing and fingerposing and all. But Spore Creatures would also be perfect for Left 4 Dead 2, where I will probably have no problem to port into either.

Just imagine all those props and ragdolls and NPCs and player models I can wrangle from Spore to Garry's Mod. *drools*

And if SporeModder makes it so much easier, then count me in the hype train.

That's one of the reasons it's easier. It can also import other things than just creatures. In fact, for creatures it's better to use colladaexport, as it exports the skeleton too.

But MarioBabyLuigi can't use colladaexport, because he can't get patch 5.1 without messing up his game .-.

I just want the mesh, though. It's no problem if I have to create bones and rig those.

Also, a long time ago, when I *could* use colladaexport, importing creatures crashed my 3DS max, so I had to open Blender and remove the bones and then reimport them to 3DS Max.

Ok, thanks
Also, it seems like most of the features are for part making, is that all it can do? (Don't mean to make it sound not awesome, I just don't know a better way to phrase that>)

I know, but what about other content modification, like space tools, and other things that can be changed in sporemaster. Will this be a parts only modder, or would it be like an updated sporemaster, with a more user friendly UI

The latter. There is functionality for stuff beyond parts planned, but (AFAIK) work on that hasn't started yet.

I'm not sure. It's written in Java, which is multiplatform, so, it should.

I just wonder some what this modder will contain...

what I know is that you will easy put models in to the mods?
I guess spore modder will be able to do the same things as sporemaster?
will you be able to view dds files in the program and also do not need to open it in any editor before put it in the mod?

It can do what SporeMaster can do, but also more thinks (it wouldn't make sense otherwise xD), for example:
- More flexibilty when exporting models, which is made using an addon for Blender (which is faster and supports the latest version of Blender)
- Being able to import rw4, gmdl and gmsh models.
- Being able to convert more textures into dds.
- Effect editor

Etc. You can see its main functions in the OP.
