Need help! Can't convert tribal to creature!
« on: June 04, 2009, 03:22:58 pm »
How can I take a tribal creation, and demote it to the creature editor? I've tried everything I can think of; I even tried stripping the creature and then dragging it into the creature editor! I want to make a few changes, I don't mind having to rework the clothes!


I think fish drown when they are knocked unconscious or pierced through the lung.

It's impossible.

Don't ask. Mods, lock this thread. Also, reported.

EDIT: Why don't you just modify the creature editor version of a creature and promote it to tribal? I think that works, but you have to make your changes BEFORE you dress the creature. Also, scratch the report of this, but lock it. Question answered.

Pie. Don't report posts when someone asks a question you know to be impossible. Read the rules.

Actualy its not impossible. But I have no idea how I done it. My "Snork" Creature is wearing tribal clothing but he can be seen in creature stage some how.

It gets worse when your space creatures have some of their own kind walking outside of their own cities and are classified as wild animals.

But what's really strange is that they're wearing tribal clothing despite the fact that it's stated in-game that they're actually in creature stage.

If you're really desperate to bring a clothed creature back into the creature editor, there's a program called SporeHack (Downloadable here, as "Spore editor Hack) that can force a creation into a specific editor. Also nice for putting vehicle parts on creatures :D

Thank you, Darth Grievi.

Unthank you, Pie. Like, negative thanks.

Well it's not exactly unthinkable. Animals, Tribals, Civs, and Spaces are all the same kind of "thing", the outfit parts are still just parts. It's hardly unlikely that it's possible to "unbind" a file or muck around with the categorisation thing causing the game to think it's from another stage. Apparently Flora are just classed as a different set of creatures by the game also, cells are also possibly of this nature.

DG, your suggestion worked perfectly! Thanks a ton! I haven't tried sharing it, but even if I can't that is a small price to pay! Thanks a ton!
