Thrive easter egg idea

So, I have an idea for an Easter egg referencing Pandora horizon and Pandora without horizon in thrive. The idea is when you load a world in single-player (and if it happens, multiplayer) and name the planet Pandora Horizon then you will start in the creature editor with infinite points, after your done building your creature you will move on to the awakening, society, and industrial stages. During these stages you will encounter other races that do not necessarily have to be related to your own. You can befriend them, go to war with them, you know, the usual. In this world there would also (Hopefully) be magic and magical materials. You would be able to use the tool editor to create magic items and mechanisms, like, for example, you could attach a fire stone to the end of a stick and use it as a torch or a flaming spear, or use electrium to power robots. Space travel would not be possible, and the world would end after insufficient knowledge sacrifice. Each race in the world would be assigned a unit power for how much damage they would do to the end, and the one to last the longest wins.

this seems like another game ngl

Honestly agree with Knowledge, It’s a cool idea but doesn’t fit in with thrive.

Up until you started talking about potential magic tho, I might be able to see it as a potential path and branch off of Ascension stage someone could build if they want to (being able to design their creature and others how they want), but that would be up to the player not the devs

And magic… this wouldn’t quite fit in thrive, don’t you think? Why randomly throw in magic to a game that strives to be as scientifically accurate to evolution as it can be?

I appreciate the attempt to create an Easter egg based on the forums, especially off of a popular forum game, but as knowledge says this seems less of a fit for thrive than it’s own little game itself.

(Personally think that Easter Eggs should be on the much smaller side if added - for example, making it possible for a randomly generated world name to be Pandora’s Horizon, or the name of one of the other popular forum games)

I agree with the other replies so far, it started off like a plausible free build / ascension mode thing, but then quickly moved to mod territory, and then with all the magic and stuff shoved in, you are basically suggesting someone do a total conversion mod type of thing for Thrive.

I’d like having an Easter egg, but not a magic game mode. Maybe having every civ warship He in a secondary sense, or having a world ending random event always happen before you get to space stage, but no magic, mods exist for that.
