This mod will reduce the frequency of all space event for the purpose of allowing people to enjoy their universe, rather than babysitting their planets.
This is my second thread on this, and also my final one. This is my final version of these mods, and I am satisfied they work as promised PROVIDING you follow the instructions. They are simple, but NEED to be followed. I started this thread so all versions and install information is available on the first page. Plus these are all new versions.
Install - Download the file and COPY it into spore/data (the folder with spore_game.package in it). Copying it will make certain it's created date is newer than whatever else is in that directory so it will override the required data. Start a new game and enjoy (any phase is fine). Whenever you get an update you must reset the mods date by copying it to you spore/data folder again.
Be aware, this mod saves its tweaks to your savegame, so deleting the mod will not remove it from any game based on it. Also if playing in any language other than english the mod may not work. One tester had it running in russian fine, another in dutch did not.
This mod is a plugin only. It does not overwrite or change anything and can be deleted any time you like. Just remember the mod WILL still be active in any game started while it is installed.
As there is at least one badge depending on you stopping eco disasters so you may want to refrain from using the bigger ones, but it is your universe, choose one to fit your playing style/desires.

Did you need to delete your old save games in order to make this work? Or was that just some folks over at GameFaq?
I created my own mod based on the steps posted in the earlier thread, and it worked for me without deleting my old saves. I've been trying to spread the good news to frustrated folks out there, and I want to make sure that I give them the full scoop.
