Hi there! Introducing myself

Hello! nice to meet you all. I’m a Spanish biology student and speculative biology nerd, so of course I really love the concept of Thrive. I actually discovered it waaaaaay back when I was just looking for an alternative to Spore and Thrive was on one of its first releases. I rediscovered it a few days ago and I loved it, i’ve been playing it non-stop to try and replicate some of the organisms I study (My favourite build thus far is the euglenid build, just chloroplasts, two flagella and a lot of engulfing) and to explore some hipotetical ones. I’d love to contribute to the game’s development in some way, but I don’t have coding or artistic skills, so I’ll just sometimes propose some wacky (but scientifically based) ideas on the forum like haptonemas or digestive exosomes hehe.

And well, about me: I love cooking, plants, hard games and weird music. I hope we can get along well ^^

Yes, yes, there are many forum games on the thrive forums, most of them dead, but there are a few that are running currently, such as Immortal, and Oderhan. They are really fun to play, well, Oderhan hasn’t gotten past the first round yet so you could probably join.

You can always enter the first post of a forum game that caught your eye and is active and write that you can join and whoever writes can reply to you.
You can always ask others or create your own. It’s not an easy job to run a forum game, but it never hurts.
If this forum game is free to just write something according to their rules, then you are more welcome than ever.
Of course you can always ask questions, everyone here is nice (my last check)

Stay. Away. From the discord. If someone offers to add you to a game discord, refuse. Never join the main discord.

Edit: also hello Tunguska, nice username!

Good thing I found that out before I decided to look at it.

Wait, so how do I make a forum game and then run it? I have an idea for one.

Make a thread that explains the initial plot, the rules and how to join. Then, after enough people join, run the game. It’s preferable that the game be played in rounds but I don’t know what a free form system looks like so it’s up to you. Chances are if you make a game I’ll join it.
