2D to 3D
« on: June 11, 2005, 03:21:13 am »
All the 'phases' of development from evo to ufo can touch each other... but can we have ufo's sucking up protists?

What you are saying is that the UFO stage can interact with any other stage. Flying to worlds where there are still simple tribes, or cities, or it can fly around and interact with the creatures from the evolution stage, and what you want to know is if the UFO can interact with the amoeba stage? You know, I've kind of wondered that myself.

To tell you the truth, the single celled stage kind of baffles me. What impact on your creature do your choices in the amoeba stage have at all? I'm almost starting to think that the amoeba stage is kind of a tutorial or starter to get you into the action and teach you the basics of the world, and the creature editor.

Either way, I don't see how the UFO can really interact with the single celled stage. Perhaps once you get the genetic engineering technology you can create a simple organism and drop it down on some world, then go in and play as said organism, advancing it to any stage you see fit.

Oh and can creatures on different planets evolve on their own?

Wil repeatedly mentioned an "uplift-scenario", where your UFO drops a monolith and comes back later to see how it developed from there on.

How species develop when you're not doing that is unknown, maybe it's linked to the continous evolution in that players world if he plays? I don' think they are evolving before you met them personally, since that would mean lots and lots of spacefaring species (everyone) and only new ones woudld be animal or tribal phase.

Maybe you can buy shrinking technology to take your UFO to the microscopic level in a Fantastic Voyage type thing.
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.

What about a microscope? With microscopic "hands." Seems to me to be the simplest way to do it.

But then your UFO can't get attacked by mean amoebas!

Oh , so you want to eat me Mr. Amoeba.  Enjoy it while you can.

Well, its different for different kinds of cells... Cell walls are rigid. Amoebas arn't rigid at all. That's why I found it humorous. :)

Unless you're trying to destroy plants, you won't get cell walls...
It's... I think it's the cell membrane... it's been such a long time ago when I had studied this kind of stuff...
