Sporedum has just posted a trailer preview of their Better Spore v1.5 Mod to make Spore more enjoyable!  With the mod all of the hidden cell parts are able to be accessed in the creature stage, grox parts can be used, 10 new custom parts have been created, 10 new items have been created and changes have been made to just about all of the stages!

I have to applaud all of the modders and creators involved in the project!  These are the folks who help make Spore much more enjoyable.  I do feel bad though that once Spore Galactic Adventures drops in May that this mod will probably end up having to be re-programmed due to conflicts with the expansion :/
