Genetic Modification with UFO
« on: July 28, 2005, 04:00:03 pm »
I looked for similar threads, but I couldn't find any. So...

With the UFO's genetic modifier, will I be able to make any creature I want without the "evolution points" aspect? If I abduct a chicken herbivore, would I be able to make a carnivorous whale from it? Also, will I be able to affect the brain of the creature? If it's smart, can I make it dumber, and if it's dumb, can I make it smarter? Thanks.

EDIT: Also, will you be able to create the "actual" creature that you made in the editor and drop it on planets?

EDIT2: Another quick question about the UFO. Does it cost money to do something every time, or do you buy the tool and then whatever you do is free? For example, with the genesis device, would you pay 2,000 units of money for the device, and then use it as much as you wish for free, would you pay 200 units each time you use it, or would you pay 1,000 units for the device and pay 100 units each time you use it? Sorry if that doesn't make sense, I've never been one for words.

EDIT3: Will I be able to program robots to do my bidding? Say, program an army of giant robots to destroy civilizations, and then wait while I swing by and pick them up?

Yeh, Will said after you get that tech, you pretty much have free acess to all the editors. This will let you do whatever you devious mind may want, from cross-breeding to crazy alterations etc. etc.  :D

I think he also said that you could upgrade other creatures with robotic parts (robots can be made), but I'm not sure about it. It'd sure be cool if so.

Just to let you know, most of these topics are going to get reeeaally slow until we get some "fresh meat." (unless you're a vegetarian, but "fresh vegetables just doesn't sound as cool)

Although if you could say create a tank that walks (ala star wars AT-ATs or AT-STs) and then genrally design it so it looks like your own creature you could theroetically have robots early in the civ stage as all seeing whats to define a tank from a robot.

That would really be more of a mech. I'm thinking the robots aren't significant in that they're metallic walking creatures, but rather that they are creatures able to create, get a civilization and so on, a la SimEarth.
Riot grrrrl!
