I changed it to 50% of all species in the galaxy in the game because half of all life also applies to bacteria and cells and that would take way too long (also plants applies ) so to make sure you don’t spend a lifetime i put half of all species (lets say sentients perhaps ) this achievement is meant to be the half way point to the Eternal Doctrine one which has you wipe out all sentients in the galaxy except your own species or relatives of your species

EDIT: read back the other posts before our recent ones and i have SO many suggestions for alternate names for their achievements and or critiques but a reply isn’t a small self contained area to one single comment and it pops to the bottom like a full message and i don’t want to construct the great wall of Xeno

Technically yes, but for the gameplay purposes I personally would keep it on the planet scale. But on the other hand yeah, we need some hard-to-get achievements.

Here’s my achievement idea
Dipiction of God

Find one of your old species on other planets depicted by the locals as Gods

Requirements : have 1 space faring civilization
Visit a planet in the early tribal stage
Must been playing with the specie’s that you encountered before
Old space faring civilization must have died or won the game

A also made a icon but it’s bad
But I don’t care I like it!

My next icon (I hope) will be better

Moar achievements

“Kirov Reporting” - create your first Zeppelin Bomber

“Mortal Kombat” - Get a soldier to fist fight with another soldier and win in one of the future stages when hand to hand combat has been mostly phased out

“Fully operational” - Construct a Super weapon

“this ain’t Spore 2” - have a creature die instantaneously from structural instability due to too many legs or not enough proper support from leg structure

“Battleaxe 500K” - create a race similar to a warhammer 40k one (maybe multiple similar factors is how the achievement is dictated or it could just be imperium of man only)

“Self-Insert” - Find a species with one of the devs names on it

“the path of now and forever” - Enslave half of all species in your galaxy

In my opinion, this should be changed to “Actual Ghandi”

it could also be referred to as “Civilized Ghandi” as a reference to the OG game its based on
