Description - 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.

Extraction - It is in .rar format, so you will need winrar or equivalent to unzip. Also you may notice the file explodes from 8mB to 190mB. This is normal. (Hence why I compressed it)

Installation
-Back up your Spore_Game.package in the ..spore/data folder. Back it up to a different folder.
-Extract Spore_Game.package from whichever version you downloaded and put it into the ..spore/data folder.
-Start a new game.

Un install
-Delete my mod
-Restore backup Spore_Game.package to ..spore\data.

Note - There are badges earned by preventing eco disasters, and defending your allies, so you may wish to refrain from downloading the bigger files, but it is your galaxy, play it how you wish.

Medium
Pirate - 1.5 hour
Ally pirate raid - 4 hr

Link - www.megaupload.com/?d=EURNW281

Enjoy.

I will offer any support here. IF you read the instructions first.

PS - To everyone following this project, and those enjoying all the problems with earlier versions, thank you for your patience. I have tested these, and they all work for me. Done. Finally. Now I can play too.

Under Construction - I am trying to get the empire attacks working properly, I have no idea why they aren't, the game is referencing the data differently than expected. Still working on it.

Thanx Duthos. By the way, what are the differences between these from the v.3 MOD in the other post of yours?

The v.3 was a plugin that waas supposed to only overwrite a small part of the spore_game.package. While it worked for most, I got enough feedback to decide that a complete spore_game.package would be more reliable.

Testing on my system showed this to be true, so hopefully this will resolve all problems.

hi, i just registered so that i could give you some feedback. ive tried all your patches so far but none of them have worked for me, ive tried starting a new game (at the space age) but i still get alien attacks too frequently and ecodisasters and what not. ill try this one and let you know how it goes... do i need to start a new game for this patch?

Yes, new game. No, diff should not matter.

This version was made because of how many people couldn't get the otehr one to. This version is much larger as it is a replacer rather than just a plug in, and doing so should be more compatable.

Let me know how this version works for you.

I hear that.

Which version? If you are using any one other than extreme it is possible, though unlikely, to have an attack in the first twenty minutes. If you get a second attack on twenty, unless you are using lite it didn't take.

In that case try this. It worked for one user. And me, once.

1. Delete all save games
2. Delete files inside C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Roaming\SPORE\Temp
Edit - 3. Use a new race. one from the library that wasn't created on your game.
