In Spore, there isn't a cheat code to instantly unlock all parts, but there is a cheat involving the freecam command that allows you to repeatedly collect the same pile of bones over and over again, which allows you to unlock all parts very quickly.
This cheat involves using the console, commands are typed into the console and sent by pressing ENTER. To open the console:
- On Windows (PC): CTRL + SHIFT + C
- On Mac: COMMAND + SHIFT + C
You'll first want to find a pile of bones but don't click on them. Make sure you are very close to the bones - so that you wouldn't have to move to claim them. If you are too far away from from the bones, this cheat won't work. After finding the pile of bones, activate the freecam cheat by typing freecam into the console and hitting ENTER:
After activating the freecam cheat, click the bones and pause the game (at the bottom of the screen) as soon as you are notified that you've unlocked a new part. See the below image for more help:
Note that in the above screenshot we have already paused the game, so the play button is showing (if the game isn't paused the pause button will show where the arrow is pointing). Once you've paused the game using the pause button, zoom out as far as possible. Your game should look something like this:
After zooming out, you're going to need to zoom all the way back in. Then, unpause the game, and the bones that you just clicked on and received parts from will still be there!
Repeat this process as many times as you'd like, or until you unlock all parts in Spore for the creature creator. If this cheat didn't work for you, check the common issues below.
Below are some common issues that might help you if the bones aren't respawning for you, or if you aren't able to claim them.
Not Being Close Enough to the Bones
When the freecam cheat is activated, your creature can't move. This means, if you aren't close enough to the bones to claim them when you have the freecam cheat activated, this cheat won't work.
To fix this, make sure you are essentially standing on top of the bones - get as close to them as you possibly can before activating freecam and clicking on them.
Not Pausing at the Correct Time
There are two times when people pause that cause issues:
- Pausing too early: If you are pausing before the parts unlocked icon appears (the bones will have almost fully faded out), the bones will still respawn when you pause and zoom in/out, but you won't unlock any parts. Make sure you wait long enough before pausing the game.
- Pausing too late: If you pause too late and the bones have already faded out, zooming in and out won't make them renew. To pause sooner, get your mouse ready over the pause button as soon as you click the bones, and click as soon as the icon appears letting you know that you've unlocked some parts.
Pausing Using ESC
You need to pause the game using the pause button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen - not with the ESC key. If you pause using the ESC key, this cheat won't work.
Not Zooming Out Far Enough
If you don't zoom out far enough, this cheat won't work. You need to zoom out as far as you possibly can (i.e. when the game stops letting you zoom out further).
Also, if the game isn't letting you zoom out very far, you probably don't have the freecam cheat activated. Have a re-read of the part of this guide that explains how to activate that.
Unpausing Before Zooming Back In
You should zoom all the way back in before unpausing. If you're unpausing after zooming out, and then zooming back in, this cheat might not work.
