What does not
When the window loses focus, terrain gets glitched. This not just a visual bug, this can affect gameplay.
(I suggest that you put Wings or at least a Jump ability on your creature, to traverse glitched terrain)
I recommend going to winecfg and enabling virtual desktop, that way Spore will always be focused inside the desktop. This will reduce the likelihood of terrain glitches.
What was not tested
Creating my own Adventure.
Spore is notoriously glitchy on Windows as well as Linux. You may experience random crashes, this is normal. The only bug that's Wine-specific is the terrain glitch, at least on my machine.
