I say we dump fully fledged humans into the oceans and make them turn into mer-men and develop nuclear weapons for our amusement
That's it. I'm lobbying for robopolarbears.
Since we melt the ice caps will they need to be PirateRobotPolarBears?

If we do that (and I don't want to), we'd need to make them ninjas and zombies as well. At minimum.


Oh, and seeding life will probably disable terrain controls like making the life-planet disabled systemic controls.

Why not get some bigger plants up and running? Like... Huge plants. But not elfy huge plants, but like, beer trees. With intoxicating fruit.

Create a continent under the northern ice-sheet, extending southwards as a tundra, then connecting with forests to the large eastern continent, the landmass having a shape roughly like this:

You talk, I act.

Create some mats of sargasso-like plants, but silicon-based, so big and thick they can function as small islands when creatures come along. Give them floating, juicy fruits. Also create some sort of animal to eat these fruits and spread the seeds within.

This.
Unfortunately, you lack the ability to create large landmasses of defined shapes from nothing. You may attempt to extend land along those lines, should you wish to. Be aware that tectonic movement coupled with erosion will eventually make any and all shaped landmasses moot.




Warning, Creating life will end geologic simulation.
No further direct modifications will be possible to rock formations. No further landmass will be added. No further geologic-scale additions will be considered. Timescale will slow to a evolutionary timescale. If environment proves inhospitable to life, simulation will end. If player interference proves inhospitable to life, simulation will end. Early life is fragile.

Ho hum. Continental drift works in this world, right?

Create some plants like silicon-based algae*, and some sponges*, and some silicon-based bacteria* living in various places, and some silicon-based fungi*, and silicon-based diatons*, and silicon-based protists* of various sorts, and a single species of carbon-based bacteria which lives by the hydrothermal vents.

Long-term goal:

Because Great Wyrm always has the best ideas.

I just realized how old this is....

No wonder it looked so familiar.

+1 GWG's idea.

Also, create some non-silicone based creatures, to serve as another caste (like plant/animal/fungus, we currently have one kingdom)

I'm thinking something based on a Noble Gas, or Lithium. Because Lithium and H2O just looove each other.

Our long term goal is now to create peaceful squid-people called the Boron.
