Answered

Type of Question: DS
Version of Creatures: Creatures Exodus from GOG
Install Directory: My Documents
Operating System: Windows 7
Remastered Patch Installed: Yes
Error Message: Either your computer or the Creature Labs server is not connected to the Internet. Please check your Internet connection is established and try again.

Full Question: Why can't I register a world? I can't play Docking Station otherwise.
Details and Other Information: I have tried to register a world numerous times, and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection. I am unable to load Docking Station at all because it wants me to play online. Can I play offline, and how?

Unfortunately, new registrations for the warp feature of Creatures Docking Station have been closed for years. This feature of the game has not been fully working for some time, which includes the online aspect. Luckily, there is a solution to play the game offline! Download the DS offline option and follow the installation instructions. Any newly created world can then be played offline, although the online option is still there should this functionality ever return in the future.

Hope you don't mind if I boost my own "no login patch" here: http://armaina.com/xan/creatures/patches.html

It *actually* disables the login screen (it doesn't come up when you make a world), doesn't require manually installing any sprites, and will allow re-auth of a world at any time in the event the server ever comes back online. (It also provides the option to disable the Welcome screen if you don't like it.)
I will marinate you in the GPL for 4 days and then I will roast and eat you.
