Sporenaissance: show your creations on EuroSpore!

Post by Ansje on Mon Dec 05, 2011 4:58 am




Please post your tips and tutorials on our new, seperate tutorial topic:




Post 1: Introduction of our team and the philosophy behind the Sporenaissance



Clickable links to the Sporum:

Post 2: Stay tuned for our new challenges for the year 2012!


Post 3: A sneak preview of our upcoming events!


Post 4: The recently featured Sporepedia highlights


Post 5: More inspiring threads on the Sporum!


Post 6: Archive of closed contests




General help link: How to post your creation/picture to a forum click

Some more information about posting clickable Spore png's/pictures on EuroSpore as it does work a bit different then on the Sporum:

It works when you paste between the URL brackets this kind of short link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia#qry=sast-500814728122

But within a picture it does NOT work with this kind of long link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia#qry=usr-Ansje|2265476012%3Asast-500814728122
You will need to remove the "red" username part: usr-Ansje|2265476012%3A , don't ask me why.



How to post your YouTube video
First click on "share" under the YouTube video. Then choose "options", after that for "long link". Now copy and paste this long link between the YouTube buttons of your message field.


How to share a creation without using the Sporepedia
When you want to share your creation without using the Sporepedia you need to upload the tiny png picture of your creation to a Photobucket, Imageshack or DeviantArt account. Then post a link to your png picture on this topic. You can find the tiny png pictures of your Spore creations when you open an explorer and look in "my documents" > "my Spore creations" > buildings (or creatures, or vehicles, just what it is). Creations entered this way still can be part of the upcoming contests as well, if needed I will re-share the creations myself, mentioning the original creator of course.



Introduction of our team:

Do you feel bored? Need a challenge? Help with creating an adventure? An advice to improve your skills? Or maybe a creation for your adventure?

We are here for you!

About us: we are a group of Spore veterans from around the globe with a very diverse background but one thing in common: we still love this game and we invite you to enjoy the game with us. We will use this topic to help you with advice, tips, and answer questions as our part of the effort to revive the community in what we hope will turn into an era of rebirth for our beloved Spore. We offer creations on request and we will challenge you to be creative with contests, some big and some small.

In addition to the team members mentioned above we are very pleased with the help of the UBD militia members IceInMyBlood and Rikyudoo, who assist us with creating "dark style" creatures and props on request. Thanks guys, highly appreciated.



The ideas behind this project cannot be better expressed then with the following quote of Slarti:
Spore is one of my greatest pleasures. I 'relax' in the editors. I enjoy the community.
Sadly our little game and community have been fractured for awhile now. However, one thing that has never changed is the passion people feel for this game, and for creating.
For some, the MPN has become a battle ground filled with drama. For others, the MPN matters not.
There has been a slowly widening crack in our little art community. Maxis has not closed the doors, and more than a few of us hang around...waiting, it seems.
I've long thought that it would be nice to see this game return to it's former glory, the chances of that happening are very slim.
It dawned on me one day, that it may be better now, with things as they are. We have a smaller list of active players who, in general, have a deep devotion for Spore. Making it possible to have a more personal and friendly environment in which to create and have fun.
...if only we had a meeting place to gather, band together, and bring the FUN back.
...a place that has a little of this, and a little of that...for EVERYONE.
...a place to hang out, ask questions, get feedback.
...a place to show your skills, your creations.
...a lounge for some, a club for others.

So, I asked a few of my friends if they'd like to help build such a place, to 'give back' to the Spore community which we love so much. Each one agreed, without hesitation.

The Sporenaissance thread is what we've come up with.

It is a work in progress, and your input and ideas will be greatly appreciated. You can help us finish the 'house' we are trying to build. :wink:

Welcome to the party, people. Let's take our game back.

Without further ado, I hope you're all ready for a lot of fun. Very Happy

Okay this message is not meant to be an articitic picture or something but to inform about some ways to show your creation without using the Sporepedia. The lady on the picture is made by soupfamily. I picked up the small ingame png that she uploaded to her DeviantArt account and opened the creation in my Spore game to make a picture in the editor.




Some more information about posting clickable Spore png's/pictures on EuroSpore as it does work a bit different then on the Sporum:

It works when you paste between the URL brackets this kind of short link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia#qry=sast-500814728122

But within a picture it does NOT work with this kind of long link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia#qry=usr-Ansje|2265476012%3Asast-500814728122
You will need to remove the "red" username part: usr-Ansje|2265476012%3A , don't ask me why.




Another test, this is not shared on the Sporepedia but on my Photobucket only. Do try to download it to your game to test the way this works:



To save it to your Spore game you have to right click on the small png, save it under "my" documents --> Spore creations --> creatures. AFTER that, start up your Spore game and look under "new downloads".


Showing a YouTube video:
Click the share option below your YouTube video and choose for options --> long link. Then copy and paste this long link between the "YouTube" buttons above your message field.




Remark to new members registered to EuroSpore: to post an external link, you need to be registered for a week. You can however add a signature and an avatar picture to your profile right away.

The Title say show off my stuff so here's some of my latest



You know, the pngs generally look better against a dark background, I wonder what made EA think a white background was a good idea.

The retarded genes in their collective corporate brain, no doubt.

Kudos for those two, though-and I've just started meddling in your collection of buildings btw- and am getting more impressed by the minute.

Also, I'm back peeps. Hope you had a good holiday! Very Happy

@ GrandPeep: That purple creature is very funny but I really love that steampunk style robot! Indeed they look good against the dark background, I will show something soon here as well, haven't been very active with the Spore editors for a while but it's time to shake things up a bit Smile

@ MK: welcome back from holiday!

@ GrandPeep: very beautiful set of buildings! The colours, cupolas and towers somehow give an eastern palace "feeling".

I finally made some religious air "vehicles" for my "Realm of Death" set on the Sporum World Builders Thread:




Hmm.... somehow posting clickable Spore png's or pictures works different then on the Sporum.

It works when you paste between the URL brackets this kind of short link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia#qry=sast-500814728122

Better mention it here for other folks who want to post here, added this information in the 1st post and test message as well.

@ GrandPeep: they are absolutely great: all of them. Most of them I have seen in the editor: I really admire your original use of outfitter parts, especially what you do with hats.

Not much to show myself ATM, but I am very busy with the editors. Working on setting up two small adventures: one with the Muppet characters of MadEyeJude and one with that awesome skull gate of IceInMyBlood. Ice is a very nice guy with awesome darkstyle props, quite a challenge to combine them with my own stuff LOL. I did before though, with creations he made for the "hilarious say cheese" contest on his previous username The-Cold-Lord.

Post by Serevanth on Sat Jan 21, 2012 5:49 am

I just released my second adventure, the next chapter in the Kuuhrduronian story line. It is called "A Blight on the Summit" It has guest appearances by several of the World Builders Thread empires. I had more complexity left than I thought so I was able to include several more than the four I thought I would be able to. I chose those that had diplomats or ambassador characters I could use, I apologize if your empire didn't get a slot in this adventure. I do hope you enjoy playing it!



Adventure Description:

After your impressive success in winning the favor of Ambassador Kusek and the Kuuhrduronian Empire during your assignment on Luchel 3 you received a nice promotion from your council, and found yourself assigned to attend the Quadrant Summit as a delegate for your empire. Specifically you have been directed to open talks with the Nassonex Empire on establishing a trade route with them to help develop some of your outlying colonies and expedite your empire’s ability to expand. After a slow start you found a Nattonian Ambassador willing to discuss the issue with you and have developed a professional friendship with her over the course of several meetings. The two of you are meeting again negotiating the few last details of the agreement when suddenly the Ambassador’s speech starts to slur and she stumbles nearly collapsing to the floor…*Created By Serevanth* With appearances by empires from the World Builders Thread including:
-The Nattonians [Nassonex Empire] by T3hPiti
-The Aquala Empire by GodisCrying
-The Leopods by G1s26
-The Makookopoden by Meee1
-The Muhda Empire by DragonKal
-The Raasav Empire by Scorpio314
-The Touani by Driekbok
-The Ursikani by G1s26
-The Vekarran by Vektrix
-The Zaretian Empire by LoneStar45
-and The Zathellu Empire by MjrGlory
-You can find the World Builders Thread at: http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/75921.page
