So what does everyone think about the genetic engineering. I really want to make my own planet with everything on it made by me. Then i want to leave a monolith so they will worship me. Just think anything you dont make originally u can make later with the genetic engineering, thats just cool. You could like make a pet species for your creatures. I think right now the genetic engineering just sounds awesome. So what do you guys think about and what will you do with it (ideas thoughts opinions)

I'm going to make weapons out of them. Giant boil covered troll monsters whose mouths are on their stomachs and eyes are on their head, with  five humongous arms and six powerful legs! Eight feet tall!

I think this is one of the coolest aspects of the ability to make more creatures at the space age. I mean, I could design a race of collossal world-killing brutes, load as many as I can into my U.F.O. and everytime I attack a city, dump them onto the citizens for maximum terror.

Would be pretty sweet to watch.

i was thinking about having my creature (monkey top, spider bottom) Make all these normal looking spiders to use as pets (or close as possible to pets). I then would also make all these other animals with spider bottoms. then i will form a spider alliance. muhhahahahaahha.

I was also thinking it would just be fun to come some desolate moon and make it habitable for life and fill it up. That concept of the game is just awesome.

I'm going to go all out in the creature editor and create creatures that have quirks. Basically, I will experiment until I get a creature that walks in circles, or can't dance, or does something odd and out of the ordinary. I will exploit the algorithms and make them do something they weren't supposed to do. It'll be a long road, but it'll be worth it. One developer said that the scripts will work 80% of the time, so I will try to find that 20%

Yea, this basically allows for an endless game... I'm also hoping that you'll be able to start these creatures from scratch - in terms of starting from the tribal stage!

Remember the genetic editor isn't any different than the creature editor and as such will have the same limitations.  I doubt we will suddenly be able to make an uber creature.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

Yeah you could make these strong destructive monsters and drop them off on planets you hate to clear them out for you to colonize and refill with something you like.

I don't know... it kinda looks like a big blob....  j/k

That'd be cool... I wonder if the editor will allow us to make tongues like that ... or allow more than one tongue per mouth?

Imagine that, only 100 of them, converging on your city. Do you need a change of underwear?

Behold! Groknash! Tewor of da seas!



What would be perfect if robotic parts do get put in the game as a future tech. That eye could be turned into a lazey beam.

I think he meant in terms of brain limitations.
