It looks very interesting! Good job!
Would you mind adding me as a friend in Steam (I have the same name as here)? I'd like to talk with you about this :)

I have very little time, and I almost did not appear in Steam.
And my English is horrible :c
But we can discuss the mod here.

P.S. A new kind of specular-texture c:

Okay, let's see...

...I want to contribute to this, but I'm a terrible modeller, and a terrible texture artist...


...oh, I know - I can replace 7 categories with just 1, which saves valuable space.

I don't think words are very effective in this case, so here, have 1,000 of them in a picture:

See what I'm doing? Unfortunately, the category has to be on the right for this to work, and the camera doesn't really like that, but if you think it's a worthwhile tradeoff, then great.

Without further stuff, here's the files: Palette Download.

Honestly, that palette is fairly useless because it obstructs the view of the creature and leaves a huge empty space with nothing in it. That's why I ditched it after playing around with it for a bit :/
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.

Well I solved that problem with CTRL H. Besides, once Emd cracks open SPUIs (yeah, that's gonna happen eventually), we can fix that issue, so this is rather temporary.

I apologize for my long absence. I think I will be able to collect on one part of the day, and to release the first alpha version by Sunday (08.02.15).

And little preview of new foot-part:

I like this template, but now I'm busy assembling the models. I'll come back to it after the release of the mod.

I tried the mod, and it seems like a good start but I have 1 complaint: the black or brownish bases on the parts never math to my creatures. My suggestion is to duplicate the parts onto a new page and have them recolor like the creature, so we have the option of black ones and ones that texture like the creature

Yes, do this!

Yeah, I colorized parts in next update (but I will leave only colorized parts, not old-black).

May I also suggest fixing the bug that prevents eyes from being placed on the heads/mouths? It makes them rather difficult to use, but I was able to fix it quite easily, so it shouldn't take you long.

Eyes can not be placed on your parts. Please fix that. It is easy to fix.
