In an effort to keep the Spore community connected after the Sporum shutdown, here are some of the most popular Spore communities in 2018.
APRIL 2018 UPDATE: For the latest updates to this list, visit the Sporum Discord. This website will be updated soon.
EA Answers HQ
NEW OFFICIAL FORUM
EA Answers HQ is home to the new official Spore forum. While small, there are new sections for discussing Spore, sharing creations, and finding announcements and help for Spore.
The following four communities are Discord servers. Discord is a chat service that can be accessed from any web browser, computer, or mobile device. Each “server” has multiple instant text channels, plus some have voice channels if you choose to use them. The Discord service and these servers are not maintained or endorsed by EA or Maxis.
This Discord server is maintained by myself and SporeMaster Doom. This Discord server will not primarily focus around chatting about Spore – rather, it is intended to serve as a “hub”, keeping Sporumers connected after the shutdown. This will be the place to meet up with other Sporumers and find new Spore communities. It will include links to other Discord servers (listed below), as well as some other projects that we are working on.
CREATION SHARING AND SPORE DISCUSSION
Sporechives is one of the best places for sharing Spore creations and discussing the creative side of the game. You can share your creations, including modded creations, learn from top creators, learn about community-made part packs and editor mods, and participate in a wide variety of contests.
CRASH – Creator Reviewed Adventure Sharing Hub
ADVENTURE SHARING AND REVIEWING
CRASH is a group of creators dedicated to finding, creating, sharing, and reviewing each other’s adventures, and helping each other find and make high quality adventures for others to enjoy. They host a number of activities, including bi-monthly contests, and a shared roleplaying universe for adventures.
SHARED-GALAXY/MULTIPLAYER SPORE GAMES
Project Multispore is about playing Spore in a galaxy that is shared with other players, in the form of a turn-based multiplayer game. No mods are required, and there are multiple galaxies, each with its own theme and rules. Some galaxies even have a roleplaying focus! This is also a good place to chat about Spore and its gameplay.
FANSITES, FORUMS, AND OTHER WEBSITES
These websites are not maintained or endorsed by EA or Maxis.
The Spore subreddit is a semi-active place to share creations, screenshots, and discuss Spore gameplay. The Reddit format makes it easy to share images and links, and vote on them.
SPORE DISCUSSION AND MODDING FORUM
One of, if not the largest Spore modding communities ever. The best place to find all sorts of Spore mods, learn about them, get help with them, and even learn how to create your own mods.
Amino Spore Community
SPORE DISCUSSION AND CHAT
Here, you can enter chats with other people, post blogs about Spore, show off videos to other people in real time, as well as vote and favorite posts you like.
More communities may be added. If you have suggestions, please post them on the Sporum discord – note that we will only include reputable websites and communities, that have an active Spore community. They can be Discord servers or websites.
