Basically, you touch it and you get smarter. A LOT smarter. When you go back to the other creatures, you say "Dudes! You have to touch this thing!" and then they do and everyone's smarter. Or something.

It would be really fun watching a herd of willosaurs getting really excited, jumping up and down shrieking and then grabbing a bone...

Well we have been told we can set up garden worlds but I don't believe the game will evolve the creatures on that world.... Thats your job once you get the genetic manipulator with the UFO.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

I wonder... do you think you can populate a planet with creatures who actually become sentient, builds cities, and so on? It would be cool, but the time scales would be way off. Maybe a "civilization speeder" tool... :P

Once a race has reached the peak of technology I think in 20 million years they would probably just proceed to spread across the star systems. Or posible become extinct somehow.

I'd just want to completely become 'God' for a species: Terraform the planter, bring in plants, leave a monolith, and if possible, let the computer evolve a species on it. Will the game be able to do that, evolve new species?

What? Rise of Ledgends?... that doesnt really fit the fantasy setting...
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
