Predators and Threats


Recommended Posts

I wish there is some species that may attack or threat human.

Abstract

The only threat of this game is starvation, starvation from food, from oxygen, from water, from heat (or coldness).
So overall it means if one don't seek for challenge, he cannot receive challenge.

Most creatures on this planet are only preys and they do no threats to the player.
 

 

There is a strange thing on this planet, there are creatures, but no ecosystem. 

Despite the duplicants (which is actually an alien species), there is no food chain, no predators and preys.

Drecko eat some plants and Paco eat algae and that's all. Others feed on minerals and have no predators.

So usually, if a native species has no predator, it itself should be a predator. (like the tigers in real life)

 

Some Ideas

1. A strong creature that may actively attack other citters and dups, and go back to its lair after fed.

2. A plant that grows vines indefinitely and, if ignored, may grow everywhere and eats up everything (can eat food in box), or grow organic mouth and deal damage to dups. It's vines can be removed, but will always regrow back. unless you find out its root somewhere in the world and wipe it out.

3. A plant (or fungal maybe) that spread spores everywhere. The spore cannot walk but may infect human, and can also root if it finds anywhere suitable. (Including empty pots and farm tiles), and will drain up oxygen quickly.

 

These creatures may hatch from eggs or grow from seeds, which is brought by the meteors.

There are some lore reasons on why the critters aren`t dangerous. The ecosystem isn`t actually "natural" but i won`t spoil it for you. You can find bits about it when inspecting certain objects.

While there were certain dangerous critters earlier in development the devs decided it not to add them.

Perhaps there'd be some Gravitas-made "Defect" critters that happen to be hostile?

Umm... no?

If you have a base population that's all herbivores, you're going to need a loooong time before you get any predators. Any point in the foodchain can be the top, even if it was just a plant.
