I just realized that "miasma"is a homophone for "my asthma."

Thanks, brain.

By the way I still intend to sketch some rules for the cavedork phase but I'm gonna be super busy this weekend running a dance festival so it'll have to wait a bit.

Wanted to bring this back up. Anyone else want to get in on this? I know I wanna have an ear in the room, at least.

I'll let you guys handle the game mechanics, but here is my brief idea for an outline.



Era of Prehistory

Age of Terraforming

The landforms and environment of the world are created.

Age of Proliferation

An age spanning from the dawn of the anatomically modern human to the beginning of settlement. Age lasts from 200,000 years ago until about 15,000 years ago. During this phase, players will be spreading humans across the planet while simultaneously developing various races, eventually coming to the point of the planets first settlements.

Age of Domestication

Spans the time from the beginning of settlements about 15,000 years ago until the development of writing (alternatively, the development of bronze working, as these things happened at about the same time) about 5,000 years ago. During this phase, players will be developing settlements, starting with isolated villages, domestication various animals and plants, and eventually leading to the beginnings of multi-city civilizations.



None of the names here are final and we can go into better detail once we nail down for sure what we want to do. We've just completed the "Age of Terraforming" and are about to enter the "Age of Proliferation." One thing to remember about the ages, they are defined by the most advanced people of the age. There will still be plenty of peoples that are technologically still within previous ages. Even to this day, we have peoples that are still in what I've called here the "Age of Proliferation." [see: Sentinelese]

Thoughts, everybody?

I like it, it all looks good to me.

For the age of proliferation, since we're covering a span of 185,000 years, how do you want to break it up into chunks for gameplay purposes? 20,000 years? 10,000 years? Less? More?

Update on the Livestock Maps

Added:
  • Chuckwalla (More reptiles, yay.)
  • Red Fox
  • Otter (Due to popular demand aka Inkling :P )
  • Spotted Hyena
  • Plains Zebra (Includes the Quagga!)
  • Common Pheasant
  • Bison (Both American and European)
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

They are large flightless birds that live in South America that are taking over Germany:

That video was taken in Germany, by the way. Dinosaurs walk among us!

Germany looks like a hellscape... I can't believe we sent our troops there to liberate it from the Japanese.

I completely forgot that rheas existed.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I think I got all the things filled in. Got a version with lines and a version without lines.





When you find something I missed, screencap it and circle the mistake or something. I guess I can still do more work on those forests along the rivers.

Found a spot I missed on the large Mediterranean island. Fixed it!
