Species shuffler tool for wanderer?

Unread postby Skeith » Sat Jun 30, 2018 3:04 am

So I assume most of you are aware that the wanderer archetype in space stage (Acquired by immediately starting space stage) was supposed to have a species shuffler that would change ALL creatures on a planet to a different creature. I'm not sure how possible it is, but I had a few ideas on how to make this work (At least partially!)

-Would it be possible to copy the species eradicator, and change it to instead of removing the entire species to picking out a random creature from sporepedia and replacing the original creature with the new one?
-Otherwise, maybe a tool that places down a random creature picked out from the sporepedia? Then combine it with the species eradicator into one tool or just leave them as two seperate tools!

This would particularly be nice for the strange habit of your home planet housing your own race as a wild animal, alongside making terraforming a lot easier by not having to go everywhere to pick up a variety of creatures or having to make new creatures on the spot!

I'm not a modder by any means, and I fully respect those that do know the craft So hopefully my ideas might work, and if not maybe in the future they'll work!
