actually title should be biting hand hypothesis (testable prediction).

But it isnt testable. At least, not untill the game comes out.

then it isnt either a hypothesis or a theory, just conjecture.

course you may not have ment a scientific hypothesis ^_^

I'm getting a headache...  :-[ ;) :D

Oh, man, I think I'm going to bed.  :D

I'm still trying to forget a topic about the nature of knowledge and now I have to fight between thesis, synthesis, theories, conjetures, talks, "runruns", supositions, wishes, and "the mother who paired all of them"  ;D :D ;D :D ;D :D ;D :D

I think i'd prefer to just make the creature with no arms and watch what happens when they hit tribal stage...

Well, I've got another theory 8) about it. By the moment, in the editor exist the Social bar (as the Speed, Hervibore, etc. bars) and the way to full it is to add hands to your creatures.
But, Social could work just to improve comunication between other creatures of your same specie, a necesary hability to reach the Tribal stage,... or both... or none.

In the IGN video, in the baby-part, Will teams up with another creature by some sort of shout. So to form a tribe, you wouldn't even need manipulators, just some way to make a 'grouping' sound

But you might need them for holding spears or fire.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

You wouldn't need to hold spears if the species is herbivorous and friendly by nature, they wouldn't have any use for weapons. And fire isn't needed if it's a warm planet, or if they are cold-blooded.

Even peaceful creatures need to protect themselves and a whole planet can't be warm. :-P

Well then they need hands to use their hot suits and tanning lotion.

No, because they'd be naturally adapted to that environment :)

A lot of the hands you can put on your creature seem to be defensive in nature. If you watch the G4 video, the guy making the creature puts those big spike balls on as hands, which makes me wonder if your creature has builtin weapons for hands, would it ever need to carry a spear or other weapon? It does seem like it would be weird to have a creature at the civ stage that walks on all fours and looks like an animal though. I'd hope you need at least one appendage that can grasp things before you can go civilized.

Well, I'm not so sure. They were not a "tribe", but a "pack", "pride", or whatever it's called. So they are social like bees or coyotes, but no like humans.

They would need the hability to handle tools, in some way.

I wonder if you can use a mouth as your gripper if worst came to worst.
