  1. reference to civilisation games ↩︎

  2. pet:you dont eat it ↩︎

  3. Maybe there could be a feature where the game shows you lines eminating from your potential preys eyes and if you can follow a line you won’t be noticed until you come too close, by the way, how big is a typical blind spot? This is probably a terrible idea ↩︎

  4. like the car grille ↩︎

  5. that wouldn’t raise suspicions if that region(orbit) was where a previous battle took place and there were already stuff flying around, and they haven’t calculated that all those projectiles would converge on one spot ↩︎

have more mitochondria than any other part- Powerhouse

have 6 toxin vacuoles- A Toxic Friend, Not a Verry Good Snack

be the most Populus species in one patch for 5 cycles- Overrun and out done


evolve a simple heart- spread the love

evolve a complex heart- Lots of Love!

evolve to eat rotting things- Not exactly my taste

be a worm- LOOK MA! NO ARMS!


be a pack/herd animal- I finally have friends… but you don’t

build a nest- home sweet home


thats all i have for right now


as a mid note ive noticed that some of the acheivements might be a bit difficult to incorporate from a programing perspective (i have no actual experiance in programing, but when ditermining how achievents work i usely go by an if this than that) we as a community should try to make the acheivement suggestions as easy to implement whenever possible

aware pt2
Fill your hunger or stomach meter(whatever we call it)-EUGH SO…full

sleep (sleep is vital for things with fairly complex brains to function, i could see a debuff of sorts for not doing it, but it shouldnt be an issue that often as players will want to skip the night/day anyways, this might even be introduced in multicellular, as things like worms seem to have a sleep like state)- sweet dreams

sleep with full glocose-sweeter dreams

evolve fire, acid, or water breath- What! I thought this was suposed to be based in science!, badabingbadaboom

have both wings and fire breath- dragon

go extinct as a dragon- dragone, Fantasy

This thread is largely joke achievements I think, not meant to actually be serious implementation suggestions

As such suggestions don’t have to be necessarily realistic or feasible (such as suggestions for an achievement of being an underwater civilization that reaches space stage, which currently will be impossible as we have insufficient evidence to say that this would be possible)

Die 3 times in a row to a species, then kill one of that species.


as to what Twilight said, thankyou. iv noticed that some of these could be dificult and others reletivly easy to put in the game, so i was unsure if this was supposed to be a joke thread or serios.
i do like some of the ideas, like becoming a cosmic horror, and part of me wants a game which blends many fantasy elements with science(and i mean like solid rock creatures or something that cant be explained with current science). although i dont see this happening, maybe in a dlc or somethin. i know im getting a head of my self but just a thought.

some ideas that are more fantasy based
