More complex foodweb/more animals


  • More complex foodweb with new animals having environmental roles such as pest species. For example adding more insects such as locusts (if there are too many locusts crops would be damaged. too little and carnivore numbers would decline, not enough vegetation in an area to feed the locusts and swarms would form which would damage buildings and objects).Other additions to the game could include specialised predators eg spiders, flower pollination by bees creating honey to sell. Thanks for reading

    I always thought that was kind of a neat idea, personally I would also like see animals that are dangers like poison snakes so forth a lot of species got hunted too extinction of species in some states here in USA due to fact that they where harm full to people and live stock or crops.

    cities here in WI even gave out rewards for hunting animals out like water snakes, and rattle snakes for example. even provide rewards on wolfs here in this state assumption that something is deadly or dangerous plays a role in real life and if your going for realism that should be included in game a lot of these creatures got hunted out also played role in like you put above pest control even bears got hit hard in usa.

    I agree animals such as the wolf should pose a significant threat to the player in the game as they would in life which inturn would force the player to kill more wolves. These wolves should be given set territories in which they hunt, in doing this if the player were to kill some wolves in an area then inturn the territory they were in would become safe for a period of time until new ones spawned. This would make killing predators actually reward the player more than just some meat which inturn would add more depth to Eco's gameplay.
    The main thing I'd like to see in Eco, is a proper food web of different species of animals like in real life which sometimes have hundreds of different species, instead of the incredibly basic food chain which is in Eco at the moment which could have been made by a child in primary school.
    Anyway pretty much the main reason people preserve the ecosystem in real life is to protect the thousands of species of animals in the world and honestly being able to count all Eco's animal types on one hand is definately not a good thing for an ecosystem simulator, even if it's in alpha. Plus the animals are so GENERIC and boring, if those were the only animals in the real world I honestly wouldn't even care if the environment was healthy or not.

    I think they have plans for some of this stuff - t least in some of the videos they show whales and more stuff, I would think they would have sharks and jelly fish stuff like that in oceans along with I hope boats and deep sea fishing whale hunting so forth.

    before OIL was discovered and electricity in the people used whale oil for heat lights lamps so forth and it is main reason whales almost went way of dinos.

    so like you said its a lot of things that happened and animals that disappeared its not all greed it was due to logic and the need at those times for those resources and also fear that caused it.

    and those things effected how planet evolved big time and those reasons are still in play right now, i would also love to see them implement city state governments so people in same game can have multiple governments and groups that could have different laws which would better reflect world we live in now and way world works with laws.

    some things may have to be add with expansions or DLC but who knows.

    Hope they don't add DLC's this game is expensive enough for what it is. Haven't bought the game yet cause i'm a bit sceptical of games in alpha (still have ptsd from buying cube world years ago) but i have been looking into this game quite a bit cause i think it has potential to be a really good game.
