2nd place: have a sapient being develop on your planet before you


This is originally from the Joke Achievement thread, but i decided it wasn’t wacky enough for that thread. Here is that thread: The new joke achievement thread
4/13: have your society create Sburb and consequently have your planet bombarded with meteors to the point of uninhabitability, while at the same time you gain control of 13 sessions, each with four players in it, each with a random class and aspect.
Doomed: fail to win all of said Sburb sessions, and thus in creating a new universe.
ReGenesis: succeed at least once, but not in all sessions, in winning Sburb and creating a universe.
Omniversal Broodmother: succeed in getting all 13 sessions of Sburb to win, and thus create a baker’s dozen new universes.

  • Yummy silicon: (cell/multicell/aware) Start as a water/carbon based organism, but evolve silicon oils* and store your energy in that (a predetory species not capable of digesting that would be less interested in you) (cell/multicell/aware)
  • Chiral ambidexterity: Use both types of a chiral molecule (cell/multicell/aware)
  • Closing in: When having a pilus fight, (because the enviroment is implied to be 3d, the piluses can’t just hit each other unless they are at an angle, and there would be an overlap in the 2d view) approach the other cell by doing an envelopement** and poke its membrane

  • Crisp 'em deader: Evolve crispr
  • Swiss army crispr*: Evolve a crispr that works against a wide array of viruses
  • Espionage induced aneuploidy: Enter a cell that is having an anaphase but you maxed your chemical stealth so you dont get detected. A microtubule connects to you and pulls you to where the future nucleus of one of the daughter cells will be
  • Chromosome missile: Attach flagellas and metabolosomes to chromosomes and send them out of your body like a rocket while reproducing
  • Capitalist chromosomes: Let chromosome missile chose which cell they move to during anaphase, instead of being pulled by the microtubules
  • Virus magnet: Send a chromosome missile out of your body(you are a cell) which attracts viruses, allowing you to escape in a virus free direction
  • Housing giants: Have an organelle that has a more genes than you
  • Shadow cooperation: Make an endosymbiosis with a cell that has a different type of translating dna to rna(could be from a shadow biosphere(descendents of a second luca) or from different planet in the same solar system). This makes horisontal gene transfer (and merging the dna’s) impossible[1]
  • Kleptoplastic assasination: Pretend that you would be a great endosymbiote, enter another species, and then kill it
  • Flagellaplast: Take a species with a flagella and mitochondria as an endosymbiote and turn it into a flagella organelle that uses glucose instead of atp

  • Plasmid overlord: Gain an organelle with endosymbiosis but you are a prokaryote
  • Mitochondrian kingdom: The only dna that exists in your cell is in mitochondria. (add metabolosomes to your nucleus or carry your genes to mitochondria)
  • Adding complexity faster than removing complexity: Create an organelle manually sooner another cell does that with endosymbiosis. Do this for every type of two membraned organelle at least once, not necessarily on the same game.

  • Planetary doom avoided: You get this achivement if you change your planet in cell stage but your orginal plnate became lifeless
  • Mucilage harpoon: Make mucilage powered harpoons, not guided unfortunately

  • Anti amoeboid weapon: Hit a cell that does ameoboid movement with a harpoon, inject it with a chemical that dissolves the cytoskeleton, and stun it
  • Divide and conquer: Aproach a cell much larger than you and tie it with your cellular rope. Then squeese that rope, forcing a cytokinesis. You are now facing two smaller cells.
  • Cellular blackmail: Do the thing above and threaten that cell that you would force it to divide prematurely, and use this blackmail to make it to give you compounds
  • Shortsword[2] pilus: Connect the side of your pilus that is touching the membrane to the other side of your membrane using a cellular rope, through the cytoplasm. Shorten the rope, the whole membrane acts like a three dimensional bow. When you see an enemy cell, release the rope, the sword moves forward and hits the enemy cell with high speed
  • Digestive hazard: Puncture a lysosome with a pilus, spreading digestive enzymes around
  • Nucleic ejection seat: Have two cell membranes, have organelles/proteins between them and inside the inner one. When a virus enters the outer membrane, put the outer membrane on exocytose mode and make whatever is inside the inner membrane exit the outer membrane using mucilage throwers before the viruses enter the inner membrane
  • Double castle: Have two layers of cell membranes that aren’t oil (cellulose, glass, etc)
  • Love hotel: Reproduce inside another cell (you are a cell)
  • Unwanted guest: After a cell enters you, merge your outer membrane with the inner (or only) membrane of it, and by exocytosing it, throw its cytoplasm to the outside enviroment, probably an instant kill

  • Defensoplast: Have an immune system in cell stage
  • Skinoplast: Have an organelle that regenerates your membrane
  • Micro balloon: Have a holdfast organelle but be less dense than water
  • Exoplasmic reticulum: After placing every protein or organelle you might need either inside your nucleus or endoplasmic rediculum, get rid of your membrane or the cell wall. You now have no membrane, or rather, you have a reticulum membrane.

  • Reverse xenobot: Evolve 3 robotic parts (cell/multicelluular/aware)
  • Unredundant: Remove your junk dna to below 5%

  • Ectosymbiosis: Gain an external organelle, it is sticked to you with binding agents. But it isn’t multicellular (yet), because you only control one cell
  • I don’t want you anymore: Play as a symbiotic algea and produce toxins so that your multicellular host releases you
  • A dragons sneeze: Play as a bacteria or a small creature and survive and spread inside fires

mobile genetic elements and viruses

[3] “genes are the smallest evolvable entities competing in what darwin called the struggle for existance” and it would be fun to see them in the game

  • Selfish gene: As a mobile genetic element, jump from species to species and cause 3 species to go extinct
  • Genenome conquest: Play as a mobile genetic element spread, spread in species patches and make 90% of the species have a copy of you in their genomes

  • Gene monarch: Play as a gene and gain unilateral dominance in the parliment of genes*
  • Policing full time: Don’t code for anthing, only fill the genetic nieche of supressing the selfist tendencies of other genes
  • Exiting a sinking titanic: In a diploid or poliploid creature, evolve the ability of comparing the different chromosomes to find out about the genetic diversity in the population based on how much repeating parts exists on those chromosomes. If it is low (implying a reduced population and inbreeding), activate a gene that increases the oppurtinities for a horisontal gene transfer happening for you (such as making the creature spend more time in water*)
  • Champion rose from the ashes: Enter another cell and be digested. But that’s no the end, because all of your dna can jump like transposons and they are good at fighting. They migrated to the nucleus of that cell, fought the dna there (there can be a fighting minigame) and defeated it. You took control of this bigger cell. It will slowly turn into your cell, if you want to keep the new organelles (making new ones after reproducing) you can make a horisontal gene transfer, turning yourself into a hybrid between your previous self and this other cell
  • Genetic fatality: Do an endosymbiosis with an online player, defeat them in a dna war minigame, take control of the resulting merged species. Give someone in a server a defeat screen this way.
  • Corrosive essence: Use oxytoxy during a fight between two genes
  • Primordial warfare: While playing as a viroid, make a dna war minigame with another viroid
  • Bad apple: As a virus, hide yourself on bilipid layers like a membrane protein so that any cell looking for an easy way to increse its surface area would be infected by you
  • Viric trap: Find or create an empty membrane. It should have dna inside like a cell but not ribosomes. Get that membrane infected with viruses, you may carry around the membrane with a cellular rope in order to not not get close the viruses while that happens. Since it doesn’t have ribosome, the viruses can’t synthesise anything to make the cell autolyse, no matter how much they reproduce. Leave that virus infested bag as a hunting trap and wait until a cell looking to feast to turn into compound clouds, though the compound cloud would be infected with viruses as well, requiring a virus cleaning tool
  • Virogin mary: Do the thing above but surround yourself with these virus bags like the cumulus oophorus. If anyone tries to pilus you deadly viruses are released to the environment and engulfing you results in that cell receiving viruses
  • Careful pilus: Evolve a predatory or straw pilus that can target a virogen mary without damaging the virus bags

  • Don’t you remember me?: As a virus, enter an ally cell’s nucleus or dna carrying cytoplasm and report a virus that is trying to place its own genes but the crispr attacks you instead
  • Viruvore*: Only consume viruses
  • Anti endosymbyosis: Play as a virus, add yourself to the dna of an organelle, take control of that organelle and make it independent from its host, start playing as a cell
multicellular or polynucleate
  • Eating the multi’s: As a polynucleote like a slime mold, consume a multicellular creature that is at least 1 meter long, start consuming it while it is alive

  • Sweeping blood: Have a structure like a waving fish tail inside your blood veins that is used to help pump blood
  • Opener circulation: Make a polinucliate instead of a multicellular species. There is no difference between the cytoplasm and the interstitial fluid. The nucleuses are evenly distributed in the organism so that there can still build stuff or help with regenerating tissues. They can either float around in brownian motion or kept in a fixed place using cytoskeleton or a cage like cell wall (has large gaps)
  • Quasi cell[4]: Be a cell and get bigger than you could’ve get normally by eating a deceased multicellular colony. There is no time to make an excretion vacuole, you keep growing polynucleary, engulfing and packaging everything around you with membranes and if they are no use to you, they will stay in that forever. When your size reaches the size of the organism, pull your nucleuses and nutrient storing organelles to the outer cell wall using the cytoskeleton, form new cells and send them away like spores for them to eat other corpses (you are a scavenger), leaving the wastes and not easily digestable material behind
  • Kleptoplastic circulatory system: The energy carrying molecules you have in your blood are packaged in membranes, the leucoplastic red blood cells enter the cells like oxygen and depleted ones exit the cell like carbon dioxideZeroploid: 80% or more of your cells dont have any genes. You have "mobile genome"s in your blood, they are cells that act like nucleuses to other cells. They enter other cells, the messenger rna reads their genes during transcription and then they leave. You have way less apoptosis or cancer, the mobile genomes are discarded like red blood cells and remade in the bone marrow, which is protected from radiation by the bone*. But some of your tissues can turn into other tissues if the epigenetic information gets corrupted. (multicellular/aware)
  • Zeroploid: 80% or more of your cells dont have any genes. You have "mobile genome"s in your blood, they are cells that act like nucleuses to other cells. They enter other cells, the messenger rna reads their genes during transcription and then they leave. You have way less apoptosis or cancer, the mobile genomes are discarded like red blood cells and remade in the bone marrow, which is protected from radiation by the bone*.

  1. it can happen, but it wouldn’t happen because what the genes code would be gibberish when they don’t use their own ribosomes ↩︎

  2. like in terraria ↩︎

  3. quoting stated clearly ↩︎

  4. like quasi star ↩︎

  5. one could say this is already what sperms do, they swim to the egg and only the fastest one passes on its genes, but there is no possibility of each gene coming from a different sperm ↩︎

  6. their fighting strength wouldn’t be corralated to how much they would be beneficial to the organism when it grows up. but just like with the sperm, random mutations are likely to reduce the fighting strength and the ones which have mutated the least one would be selected,(or the ones that increase fighting strength, like the speed for sperm) and the child would carry less mutations ↩︎

  7. "Sometimes the female is left with only a tiny fragment of her old shell, but she constructs a new one around it, incorporating the broken piece" ↩︎

  8. for example, you are an aquatic creature with both gills and a lung, the water has dissolved oygen but too much salt, the atmosphere doesn’t have any oxygen but too much water ↩︎

  9. 5% the length of your planets equator ↩︎

  10. the larva may have a large air sac ↩︎

  11. or rather, the short term selection isn’t the same as the long term selection ↩︎

  12. like omnipresent ↩︎

Please do not double or even worse triple post. Edit your post instead to have everything in one post. You managed to edit your first of 3 posts, but still made 2 unnecessary posts. (I’m pretty sure all 3 of your posts don’t hit the single post character limit)

Yea, i never double post.
Instead i edit the same post over and over again until someone else posts.

Okay, fine it was a legit triple post then, but you could have said something in the first post that you are splitting it due to max character limit. Or maybe reaching the character limit might be a sign that the achievements are getting a bit out of hand.

seems like a dlc or maybe just a mod. the whole point is to be scientifcally acurate
