Wow. It has felt forever since I have played this game. I have rediscovered some old login credentials that I thought were completely lost and once i logged into my old account I was immediately flooded with old memories, some good and some bad. When spore first came out, I immediately bought it, around this time i was a kid/preteen. It was one of the most fun games, comparable to Garry'smod, that i have ever played. I loved that i could share my creativity to others and whatnot. One major problem however, is that not much people were paying attention to my creations. I never really been able to get popular on spore let alone get a single creature highly votes/liked. I did not know what the problem was because I felt that some of the things I made looked really good. I was best at making creatures, sometimes I struggled with buildings and vehicles, creating entirely original and complex looking adventures as well as the scenery was hard for me. Now back then, I got really jealous and insecure of how popular other spore players have become, especially one named Parkaboy, and being the cringey child that I was back then, I even made creations, specifically designed to make fun of such creators and their creations, which often led to me getting hate as well. Though I do understand that I was young back then and didnt know better, That experience kinda soured the memories I have had with this game, despite having so much fun with the game itself. I am now 25 years old, struggling with depression, anxiety, and whatnot, and i am an amateur artist and writer. I sometimes post on deviantart and most of the time my artwork and stories don't get much attention. Sometimes it makes me questions wether my creative skills have improved at all over the years, which sometimes makes me depressed, but i am trying to improve my artwork (since i have started getting back into drawing a year ago). Besides all of this however, spore has earned itself a special place in my heart and I am one of those people who desperately want a sequel of some kind to this game. I am now back with playing spore via Steam. I have deleted most of my cringe creations to make way for new ones. Though i do not know how to get more popular there, I know its 2021 and the game's playerbase isnt as big as it once was, but better late than never am i right? Anyone know how to get creature likes and stuff?
Honestly dont know why I have made a post like this. Maybe its because I feel nostalgic? Maybe it reminds me that my creativity still doesnt get noticed? Im not sure. Back then I wish my creativity was recognized by many, and today in 2021, I kinda still wish the same thing.
Edit: I have now looked at more of my past creations and some of them are terrible lol while others are actually edits of other people's creations(possibly for personal use). There are still some tho that i have made that i still think are really good however. My conclusion is that i didnt try hard enough to get popular back then and that i mostly made creatures for my own enjoyment rather than to get likes.
NOTE: I also made a post like this on the ea forums of spore but im not sure how active those are so i also posted here
