Divergent Evolution: Community Challenge

So basically how this works is that I give you a sandbox setting with 4 starters. These starters will be the EXACT same EVERY time, except for their names. The starting island is Whale Island, but you have to leave Whale Island before or on 35 days and move onto the next island. You can leave as late as 40 days but must try to start moving by 35. The island you have to choose after this is randomly generated here. (Note: there are three difficulty settings for island randomization. If you change the setting you'll have to click 'generate again' to get your new island. Although the settings make some islands more or less likely, you may still get other islands, so it's possible to get killer islands on easy mode for example, just rarer.) If you fail and start again, you'll get a new randomly generated island. You CANNOT leave your new island until you have spent 100 days on that island.

The goal is to reach 100 days on your new, randomly generated island, and then see how different your Nichelings are compared to any other people who reached 100 days on a different or even the same island.

The only rules are moving to a new island before/when your founders die, and staying on the new island until 100 days on THAT island. Also, you CANNOT edit the sandbox settings. Other then that, do whatever you want! (Except use console majorly I guess, but even then, eh.)

If you do this, I'd love to see a playthrough, but if you choose not to make a playthrough, please at least take a screenshot of your tribe when they reach 100 days on their island!

Here's the sandbox:

DivergentEvolutionCC.sandbox

And here are some pictures of the settings. (Note: the females are meant to be sisters which is why their genes are similar! The males are unrelated to them and eachother, though.)

(Everything is unchanged in World Settings.)

 

GOOD LUCK!! ❤️

Edited a few things (tweaked ages and pregnancy, time to leave Whale Island, minor changes to the island generator).

I got Jungle Gate, good.

Have you started playing? I'm actually going to change the settings because I found they were a bit too hard (in my opinion)-

It won't be a super major change though (pregnancy will be 3 instead of 5, and slightly different rules on when to leave Whale Island)

I haven't had much progress, I'll just restart

How does this work? When you leave whale island do you have to migrate until you reach your randomly generated island?

Nope, you use the whale island port to go straight to it :) then stay there until you reach 100 days on that island, to give your creatures a chance to adapt to it! :D

Gen 3 has finally passed, so here they are:

Opal (Amethyst-Wire)

20210622142033_1.thumb.jpg.7a8c13e376b2732e695fd2dec24e2ea0.jpg

First child of Jungle Gate. Picked toxic berries. Was in a relationship.

 

Unknown (Ink-Rouge Male)

20210622142038_1.thumb.jpg.2df3af6d72e54e9c7279f25be6f2079f.jpg

Great name I know.

 

Leopard (Amethyst-Wire)

20210622142044_1.thumb.jpg.9e71e69bf60c29f3bad964393f86cc13.jpg

He literally just picked berries his entire life. He was killed by a bearyena while protecting his sons the same day his sister died.

 

Might (Ink-Wire)

20210622142052_1.thumb.jpg.dbc0dd4a29c49a8811bb49ec1025d894.jpg

(Yes, he has no attack strength) Became leader as a child because Ink died immediately. Died of stress.

 

Terra (Sparrow-Wire)

20210622142103_1.thumb.jpg.a1f83957ef5ebee64adc537e155f07e8.jpg

She existed, just like her mom.

 

The fake twins, Sunny and Lunar (Luz-Rouge Male2, Starlight-Rouge Male2)

20210622142122_1.thumb.jpg.d86f8d9505241c9b14042e63622b408d.jpg

20210622142117_1.thumb.jpg.0b1dca4908f7a690e7350621eece7f99.jpg

Didn't do much, but at least they died beside each other.

 

Flores (Luz-Rouge Male3)

20210622142128_1.thumb.jpg.29a7d532c7162c6e1b58f0c72c5613dd.jpg

Went looking for apes in her old age, found none and outlived a member of gen4. I hate this woman.

 

Gen 5 is so dead

Diamond (Opal-Unknown)

20210622151957_1.thumb.jpg.c669195089102a64b4cf1cfce86d979f.jpg

Gorgeous gal.

 

Candlewax, savior of the gene pool

20210622152010_1.thumb.jpg.e9f59d704536fcfb91037a82b43b8e7f.jpg

Old man with 2 wives.

 

Tiger (Terra-Sunny)

Shadowmask (Leopard-Flores)

20210622151948_1.thumb.jpg.78b90cf8f762fb250e85ab6c9ad9d313.jpg

Crescent (Lunar-Might)

20210622144417_1.thumb.jpg.04b25917911432108ca44a604f662afc.jpg

Goldilocks (Terra-Sunny)

20210622152016_1.thumb.jpg.92752daf6633badd898fc61d39dcebd5.jpg

My squirrel boi. Died peacefully.

 

Amber (Lunar-Might)

20210622151939_1.thumb.jpg.0c7dff759480eb148f41301effac679a.jpg

Panther (Flores-Leopard)

100 days have passed in Jungle Gate, these guys are very inbred

20210622163342_1.thumb.jpg.bc5e5ca66c01eb7c5dcfbfdcf75fea26.jpg

I feel like the adult stage was too brief, I had to make sure they had children immediately. At some point I gave up on remembering who was related to who, which is unusual for me. I don't know why I didn't breed nichelings of different gens. So yeah, surviving gen 7 and gen 8 are here. I had bad luck with immunities and gender ratio, though I also ignored wanderers since they mostly came when everyone was taken or a teen. Every single rouge male had K immunity I swear.

Yay! Great job!! :D

Yeah, I feel like adult stage is a bit brief (especially as pregnancy is at 3 days). Should I change it, or would you rather I don't since you've already finished? If I did, I would make it 29 days instead of 23.

Also; you have some pretty nichelings! :0 I really like the teen with violet eyes (violet eyes are my WEAKNESS) and the pregnant female :)

(Also, sorry for the late response. Busy writing chapter 3 in Those Who Remain!)

with pregnancy being 3 days I would make adults have at least 50

I would too normally, but I decided to make it this way so nichelings can have a max of 8 children; because this challenge is about evolving I wanted to make it trickier I guess? But I think it is a bit too hard (my attempt at doing it failed miserably haha...) so I'm likely going to lengthen it even more honestly. Maybe to 41 days? That would give an average of... Probably around 8? and max of 12 offspring per Nicheling.

41 sounds good! Though maybe you should expand the number of days till the challenge ends to be 120 or something like that since generations will be longer and you want more of them for adaptation. Or maybe just make it so you have to reach gen 10
