Hello everyone! I have some THRIVE suggestions. This game is really like Spore, yes? Spore… It was one of my favourite games, and still it is. And I know many fan-made “Spore 2”, “Spore copies”, “New Spores” and more. And THRIVE is best of them all, I think. For me, THRIVE is Spore 2. And sequel… MUST be better than prequel. And my ideas for it… And yes, I am russian, so sorry for my english.
1. A little more Spore-resembling game. I know, THRIVE is more realistic than Spore, but I like Spore’s atmosphere. It is cute and funny. Real animals CAN also be cute and funny (remember cats?). And I want to see THRIVE’s atmosphere like Spore’s one. At first, good thing is music… In Spore, and even more in Spore’s Cell stage, it’s very good and sounds “cutely chaotic”, and it fits Cell stage, because cells are super-cute, and the primordial soup is super-chaotic. Creatures in Spore are cartoony and cute, and in THRIVE thay are realistic and - sadly - not too cute. Concept arts make me remember Xenomorphs and old dinosaur reconstructions. But they can be realistic and cute.
- Some more creature details.
For example, thermoregulation. Warm-blooded (endotherm and homeotherm) creatures can survive in cold climate and don’t need heating on sun, also they can run faster and are protected from some infections (mostly fungi ones). But they have problems in hot places, can run only for few time (low stamina) and have high metabolism (need more food). Cold-blooded (poikilotherm and ectotherm) creatures can live only in warm places, run slower and can be infected by fungi, but they can survive in extreme heat, need less food and have high stamina.
Body cover. Feathers, scales, fur, just skin, protofeathers and more. Feathers, protofeathers and fur protect from freezing, slimy frog-like skin let you breathe with it…
Inside editor. Now you can’t become sentient without four-chambered heart, because your large brain will not get enough oxygen. Also four heart chambers let you became warm-blooded) Also you can change your digestive system to change metabolism, endocrine system and nervous system to change behavior, etc.
Infections. Creatures can be infected with different ones. Bacterias, viruses, parasites, fungi… Infections may kill you, and you need to evolve your immunity to survive it. Also they will be in tribes, cities, civilizations and empires, and you need to create medications.
Many new feeding types. For example… Entomophagy, Hematophagy, Ichthyophagy (on land), and more…
I have much more, later I will add them.
