Well, Earth rocks aren't typically all one element or compound for that matter...and there are waaaay more compounds than there are elements.  There's lots of possibilities, but since I'm no chemist/geologist I'd have probably just gone with Earth stuff too :)

Could do different distributions tho.  Like maybe your planet has unusually high concentrations of heavier elements due to something weird during its formation and rocks are mostly lead, copper is nowhere to be found, uranium is everywhere, and habitats exist floating on pools of mercury.
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

would that be impossible/ improbable in nature/ or highly reactive "Explosive"
of course the whole life that can produce explosives thing would be pretty cool
then again who can say the range of possibility is as limited as we think
I'd like to see what range of habitation certain types of life could have particularly the extreme-phoebes
If Carbon based (CHON) life likes a certain range then other life systems could have widely differing needs
I hope we can change the pallet of Textures and colors for our life making them different:
Red stars with cold volcanic worlds and sulfuric life
Violet blue stars with life clinging to the myriad of tiny rocks in its orbit
i just hope the life properties of the whole steller zoo can be exploited not just our own terran worlds

awsome Borogove my thoughts exactly

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

Here is a River Tribe plantation owner in the new world with a Jungle Tribe slave. This is during the Industrial Age but slavery has been going on since the Imperial Age. As you can see this slave is picking the red fang berry shown before in the Naucean food list. These are extremely hard to pick because they berry has a poisonous stinger on the end. Sadly over worked Jungle Tribe slaves die all the time from this berry due to their small size. However their dexterous tentacles are small enough and carefull enough to avoid the stinger alot more than any of the larger Naucean races.

The Jungle Tribe have been shipped by the boat load but not all make it to the new world. Only the deepest Jungle tribes have escaped slavery. But slavery is not forever, for in the future there has been anti-slavery wars which eventually lead to freedom and equal right for all Nauceans.

Hydromancerx , I just view the Naucean Evolution Video and it rocks!  love your choice in music it gets my vote  ;D

these Naucean pictures have gotten even better, do you have any concepts for the future age?

Also, there could be materials that are not on Earth due to maybe a mixing of elements making a different stone or mineral on other planets by maybe a climate change or such.

Well any planet will still have the same elements on the periodic table. I don't think we will find a new metal unless it is alien made.


I didn't mean new elements but, I meant new materials because fusion of some elements are unstable to be made on Earth, or they just never happened. Or maybe something like mercury on a cold planet could be used as currency, but here it's basically useless unless on thermometers, maybe even a vacummed steam can be worth something, or a liquid. Still, I can't believe there can only be those elements, I mean we (humans) don't know what the universe literally looks like, or any other sentient planet (if there are any).

Yes. but this will be the last age that follows human history. We had world wars 1 and 2. The anuceans do not have such a war yet. They will start their transtion into electronics and computers.

You will just have to stay tuned to find out ;)

Yes, but put a few together and you get... KNaO, Potassium Sodroxide! (which, due to its improbability would be very valuble, *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

I'm afraid thats chemically impossible, sorry.

Materials which would be brand new on every planet would be stuff like proteins and their equivalents. Scientists can synthesize quite a few but they still have to look for them in the wild before they can do that just because of the number of combinations.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Those nasty Nauceans... glad you're trying to go for your own twist of history, Hydro. After all, the probabilty that a certain Naucean assasinates a prince of the Desert Tribe isn't very big, and without Sarajevo, the world would have looked different. I'll stay tuned.

and NaOH is sodium hydroxide? I know the Na is sodium and the OH stands for oxygen and Hydrogen respectively.

Poor little Jungle Naucean, his head is bleeding. He will be dead before he can pick all the berries  :'(

Yes, so you get an OH group ion, and an Na ion

K(ONa) is the same, but with the H replaced with an Na, and the Na replaced with a K (and they are all in the same group, so I don't see why it wouldn't work)

WWI would have occured with or without the assasination of Archduke Ferdinand.
