we should try to actually try do this

we should probably get permission from every user in the ice burg

Viva la disco mode

In an earlier version of Thrive, there was glitch where the cell nucleus flashed which was dubbed the disco mode. The feature was given its own theme song in the april fools update of 0.4.0. It is decided that in the final game, while using cheats in microbe stage, the cell will turn into a disco ball.

The banana biome

Going with the thrive memes, there was another glitch which turned the background into a yellow “banana” biome. This paranormal event has resulted in the formation of cults worshipping the banana gods, which had 13 followers and 2 also followers. Unfortunately, anti banana activists convinced the moderators to persecute all cult activities and silence their threads. The true number of the cult today is unknown.

The helicopter build

Before rotation speed was added, colonies could spin at infinite speed, and this creature was made

50 gens writes 10 achievements a day for the last few months

I suggest other people to write achievements too. For me, writing lots of small ideas is easier than making a single long post.

Robotrannic madness
In the achievement thread in the old forum, a lot of unviable achievements were started to be posted.

[Oliveriver]how would the game even know your creature was hexagonal or your economy was based on toothbrushes? but they’re fun to speculate on so create as many as you want.

robotrannic was one of the earliest posters. when he saw what was going on, he decided to do the same.some of his achievements were really weird
  • the cake is a lie: play a entire playthrough of thrive without encountering cake
  • a angry sassauge: create a worm thats extremly agressive
  • raw raw ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahh: make eating raw meat a priority
  • the most nnoying creature in the universe:only know one word and itss hooplah
  • this fern is very important: stare at a plant for 4 hours
  • absolute territory: nice legs (secret achievement have legs that are extremely large compared to your body)
he was a frequent poster, he would post an achievement right after someone else posts

(Aquos posts 4 achievements after 4 days of silence)

  • [TheGraveKnight]And cue the obligatory RoboTrannic achievement after every single post :stuck_out_tongue:
  • [RoboTrannic] I INVENTED IT FIRST READ YOUR BIBLE I DID IT: invent something already invented
  • [TheGraveKnight]Saw that coming a mile away.
  • [RoboTrannic] actually it was 1.6 km: fly 1.6 km in one continues flight
  • [RoboTrannic] isolation: go where no animal can go before going to space
the other users decided that he was a big contributer to the madness on the achievement tread
  • [TheGraveKnight]Ok no offense Robo but I am now dubbing you the “Crash Bandicoot” of the forums.
  • [RoboTrannic] thats a compliment since the n.sane trilogy outsold any 3d mario game

He has posted in the new forum, but nothing in the achievement thread. After some time, he became inactive, and didn’t respond to my intrusive pinging. I feel very sad for never meeting you, robo. I hope the world brings you joy, like you brought to it.

Baby related achievements
In the old forum, a user posted an achievement about killing babies

[TheGraveKnight]Going Too Far?: Kill 20 babies (Aware).

it was not long before there were a lot of achievements about killing babies
  • [RoboTrannic] HOW DARE YOU:kill a baby
  • [StealthStyleL] Do You Think Killing Babies Is Funny? - Kill 10 babies
  • [Aquos] you… you monster…: kill 100 baby’s
  • [Aquos] it’s not even human anymore…: kill 1000 baby’s
  • [StealthStyleL] Hasta La Vista, Baby: Kill a baby with a Terminator. Invent robots.
and its opposite, feeding babies
  • [Aquos]how nice: feed a baby
  • [Aquos]so nice?: feed 20 babies
  • [Aquos]you must really like feeding babies: feed 10 babies
  • [Aquos]nicest person on the planet: feed 100 babies
  • [Aquos]too good to be human !: feed 1000 babies
  • [Aquos]a rather good person: do not kill or feed a baby til Ascension
there was the general feeling that there were too many achievements about babies

[The_Wayward_Admiral]Not Sure How I feel About This…: Complete all baby related achievements.

Repeating achievements

With a very long list of achievements, some achievements were thought of more than once, or some names were used for different achievements. here are some examples

achievements about creatures with wheels
  • [Aquos]cyclotorians: have a species with organic wheels
  • [Aquos]Cyclods: Make a species with organic 3 organic weels. [Hidden Achievement]

  • [RoboTrannic]organic wheels are possible: through engineering create a creature with wheels
  • [Blast]Aware Stage: Wheely : Create a fully rotating Joint/Wheel
