  1. [BRAINSTORM] Let's have faith and talk about it!

    We already implemented the ability to construct buildings by using the telekinesis god power. So similar to how in black and white you could grab trees etc and use the resources to build buildings, we have the same approach. So initially you will have for example Telekenesis, Le Cupidon + Rejuvenile god powers unlocked. As you will get stronger, you will get the ability to unlock powers that will allow you to create oceans, plot trees etc.

    This is coming. As your civilization progress forward, they will do more and more stuff autonomously. I like some of ideas here. What do you guys think if we will be unlocking god powers based on your actions ? For example as you do more actions people will be getting faith in you, or they will hate you. Obviously, as more people have faith in you, the more temples they will build and pray to you. As they pray, you will be getting stronger and stronger and you will unlock new god powers this way or another option is obviously way easier and as it was mentioned above - "develop faith through the research tree". Unfortunately, this is one of the reason why we did, what we did

    Currently we consider removing it and use it as one of the prayers that nuggets will still build. This is something that is pretty sad to remove, but it was correctly said, that it breaks an immersion too much.

    Hey guys, sorry for the delay. We just returned from E3. I will be checking all the feedback over the weekend. I have to catch up here with some things today!

    So I will briefly let you know what were our thoughts. 1) Move away from the good / bad good. Keep one system which is belief. Based on that system, have god powers unlock. Some of them will be unlocked immediately, but not all of them. 2) We thought about creating sacrifice altar and altar where people can pray to you in order to increase the speed of points regeneration. Again, this is just some of our thoughts. We are open to other things.

    I pinned his topic. It should be easily noticed now

    Kerby can you please drop your ideas & suggestions to the specific topic that threeheaded monkey created. This topic is for the research and we are moving away from it right now with the faith system. As you mentioned, there were a lot of ideas, but a lot of them didn't have any restrictions. Like I mentioned before, ideas are great, but now we need ideas that have boundaries and restrictions. We all can probably write a book. Maybe it won't be professional, but we still can let our mind flow. The issue is to keep it small, sweet and interesting. So as I mentioned before, lets concentrate on the 2 things: Organic approach and not overkill AI and the system. It should be intuitive, easy to understand and interesting. Later today, I will move all the ideas in regards to the FAITH system from the topic that you mentioned above, to the threeheaded monkey topic. Please, let move to that topic and not dump everything in one place, since it will get lost.

    Do it Just do it !

    We would like to provide the information shortly about the faith / believe system. As I mentioned before, we would like to start working on it mid June. What we would like to achieve with the Faith / Believe system is a natural feeling. Our goal is to make it work without research. If you guys would like to, create a separate topic and drop ideas about the Faith/ believe system there.Just keep in mind 2 things: Organic and not to overkill. You know from first hand experience, that people would like to get the content fast and if it is not fast, everyone is upset and says that it takes too long. I would love to see extra interesting ideas about the system.

    Thank you for the ideas. I will see what I can do with it. Meantime, you can continue just dumping ideas here. As for animations, it will be a little bit tough, just because we don't have man power right now to do them properly, but I really like that idea, so if in the future we will have an ability to get a proper person for that specifс task, I think we will go that route. Meantime, we will concentrate on improving the research and it's progression. As I am changing / adding new things to the research, I will be updating everyone on its progression as we go. I can't promise that it will be every single day, since some things require more time then others, but I will do my best to do it once or twice per week.
  11. Ask Us:

    Is there now, or will there ever be a way to edit the names the nuggets are given... as in, with The Sims, there is a file you can add names to, for those randomly named Sims to take from. Currently we did not think about it. It is a good idea and we might implement it to the game
  12. Research Prototype Panel

    Dump all ideas here with in mind of something that we can add quickly. I see your idea about the clothes. I like it. Also, keep in mind that currently the research is still being worked on, so a lot of other perks will be added and some things might change. So I encourage everyone to drop everything right now about the research.

    you don't have tool mechanics in the game as well. it's more a "you need to invent it to unlock the next visual effect". before the invention of fire there simply is no fire in the world. a dark night and no houses can be built of course if the nuggets don't have the knowledge. This is something that we considered to tie to the temperature when it will be ready. The only issue with just visuals that take effect during particular time , is that you won't see the effect from the researched perk immediately. This is something that might confuse or do not bring any satisfaction to the player. So we should consider that as well. Note: I am not saying that this is a bad idea, just need some development, but I do appreciate your contribution. I will think what we can do here.
  14. Ask Us:

    With the News piece on the addition of electricity production, can you use more than one of these modes? Can we, say, make wind turbines, and the "Nugget Wheels" to produce power? No, this is where the choice will play a huge difference. You will be able to influence the inventor mind and persuade his mind towards inventing one or another technology, but not both. Each technology will influence the way your civilization will develop and you will have to deal with consequences based on that technology. Are god powers always going to be fixed from the start, or are you planning to have an unlock/upgrade system for them in the future? We are considering unlock / upgrade god powers system in the future. Since this way we can teach people how to use them and provide a goal to unlock them in different ways if they wish to do so.
  15. Ask Us:

    Since you have been hinting at the nugget customizer just recently, I wonder what are your plans regarding the planet editor and the object editor which both were features of the original concept? We definitely would like to add all those features to the game but only after we will finish with the core eras which are stone age, medieval age, modern age and space age. The process might go way faster based on how steam will go. If it will go well, then obviously we will expand our crew for the Universim and we will try to deliver the final project with all the features way sooner then expected.
