I've Found The solution to the Patch 2 Staff of Life Bug!

OMG! It was so simple!, you simply have to log out of the EADM, exit it (right click it on the toolbar), and then start your game! You don't need to Uninstall the EADM or your game!

Uhh, what exactly was the problem in the first place? I just got the staff around 2 minutes ago (post second patch)

When it got a planet to the T2-T3 Border, the game crashed.

But why would EADM make the game crash at that point?  I'm actually intrigued.  Does it mean something gets downloaded at that time?

IDK, Unless It happened every time I used the SoL at the same T-Stage each time

For me most crashes happen in the first 10 or 20 minutes after I load the game. If I manage to get past that then it plays fine for hours with no crash.

This makes me think that crashes are related with the downloads of new creatures, etc.. that you get when you first login.

Um....for some reason, The SoL is doing this for me, and I tried doing what you said with the EADM, but it still crashes.....any hints?

Wait, The Staff Of Life broke in patch 2? I don't use The Staff Of Life  Much, but I don't think mine broke, I'll check and get back to you. Also you might want to mark this thread as possible spoilers just to let people that haven't reached the center of the galaxy figure it out for them self ::)

I've only gotten it recently, after I installed the 2nd patch, so I don't know if it would have broken before or not, but it certainly is now, and its doing it pretty much exactly how Mighdas says it does for him: just after it gets the planet to T2, the game crashes.  It really stinks, cause I really want to use it!!!

I just, also, found out that my game crashes at the exact moment the Staff of Life reaches T3.
I just got Patch 2 to install yesterday... I had to uninstall the game to install that dumb patch, now this?

I'm getting really annoyed at Maxis's incompetence. >:(

It shouldn't be that hard to actually FIX things, rather than just breaking them.... isn't that what a patch is for? :-\

I'm not sure if I'm going to play Spore anymore unless the next patch actually fixes things... and hopefully it fixes a lot.
