People are complaining about creatures dissapearing. Will that happen to me when I download the new version?

Move them out of the creature file to another folder if you're worried about it, but it should not overwrite them.

Couldn't you just re-download them from your own sporeapedia page? Or have you not uploaded all of your creations?

 Just go into your MyDocuments, MySpore and take your animals out of the creature folder before you reinstall. Wala, safe as can be.

I made a folder called temp under there and place copies of my creatures there just in case.

So it's something like this - My Documents \ My Spore Creations \ Temp -

And in Temp is backups of my creatures natch.

Thank you. I haven't tried uploading any of my creatures yet, but I can't wait, I really want to show them off.
