>>>42465412Welcome to Deja Vu Evolution (final name pending). Basically this is a regular evo-game only it will last a few days. The idea is to, down the line, replay this evolution game with the same initial condition but see what goes differently that time.And now its Deja Vu Time, the second Evo Part 2How to play:• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species• Save as .PNG!• Post your new species in the thread with a description of what evolution you've added and whyNotes:• Unless stated explicitly, no species ever goes extinct. Old species can still evolve, even if they're not on the latest "chain"• Try to make your evolutions gradual and realistic• Have funThe setting is a planet similar to earth, currently mostly covered in oceans. The Planet has recently been struck with a cosmic event, randomly wiping out more than 90% of all life. The remaining species must now adapt.RED X - ExtinctBLUE SQUARE - Survived
Smaller version of surviving species. Now there is a pretty and naked lady in my bed calling me.
Also, don't take any extinctions personally. It was not a matter of preference. I rolled a 0 - 9 for each species and only the 0s survived.
>no mulus survivedCan't say I'm that angry
>tfw mulons will never evolvealso, bump
Aww yiss, been a while since we done one of these.
>no mulu>not even my vampire mulu I was working on becoming an organic jetplane dropped
>>42489556>Organic Jetplaneit was doomed from the start.
>Those sick armored swarming Bzads died.why even live, their art was off the chizain.
>>42489556I feel bad for you man. A lot of the people that created the really good stuff had their shit nuked. I would have preferred if OP had run a straw poll on which ones to keep.>keeping the shitty sand braf over the awesome one with glowing claws
>>42489626Oh and >No plant like AlgaeI suppose we're not getting to land in a little while.
>>42489185>armored braf doesn't have an X or a square on itWhich one is it OP?
With significantly reduced predators and their major food source (small algae) suddenly dominating the waters, the ancient bzols grow paddles and begin to swarm.
>>42489892Bzols are cute af
>>42489205Spined Bzols are left with little to compete against them, yet little to eat at the same time. The surviving develop jaws from their feelers, and now must compete with one another for mates and food alike. Leaping from the sandy floor to ambush passing creatures becomes a common practice.They also grew fat.
>>42489205Survival favors the fittest given a selected environment, hydrodynamics come into play with wiggling love handles that act similar to the "wings" of a ray.
With a sudden lack of competition, some algaehedrons move into niches one held by other plants. Those found in the shallows where waves dash them against the shore and rocks, those which had some vascular tissues growing out of their origin point could anchor themselves in place. In time, these begun spreading into deeper waters as well, loosing their internal gas bubble.
>>42490146Give them a thick, muscular tail that can help them leap faster
>>42490299Note to self: proofread before posting.
>>42489205Bloz find themselves in an environment with evolutionary movement both lateral and vertical. These bolz have specialized on feeding from the convenient detritus and carrion on the oceanic floors following the mass extinction.
>>42490306ASK AND YOU SHALT RECEIVESpined Bzols develop a tail built both for attracting Bzol Mates and to assist in quicker leaps when attacking prey fro their sand traps.Remember kids, it is the size of the tail that matters.
>>42489892>>42490146>>42490286>>42490472>>42490474This is a Bzol planet, bitches.
with such a massive gap in nearly all biological niches, it pays for creatures to be as adaptive as possible to make the most of it. some Bzol go down a "generalist" route, with longer legs and a small fin at their tail this allows them to take advantage of any number of habitats. as well some seem to show distinctive markings unique to the individuals, with their increased sight who knows if these will come into greater importance.
>>42490493Actually, a similar thing happened right after the Permian extinction. Lystrosaurus and derivative species made up 90% of land vertebrate biomass.
The braf, not having nearly as many predators as most species, due to not being on the ground(AKA where the hoard of ambush hunters are), has focused more on 'offensive' capabilities, gaining sharper, and harder claws meant to pierce through other shells, and to slam into the ground.With the decrease of ambush hunters to eat, the Braf has continued to evolve to swim better, and faster, gaining two fins across its back. A braf could normally be seen racing through the water, in order to pierce through groupings Bzals, and jetting off at high speeds.
>>42489804I just missed it when I was putting on blue squares. It's alive
WIth their main source of food greatly deminished, Cerar developed a serrated jaw for taking down larger prey>>42490965I lol'd
>all these extinct species.Damn....
>>42490299Some Algaehedron begin to develop stiffened vascular tissue that lift them off the bottom, away from non-swimming scavengers
>>42490286this species of bzol further develops its wings, enabling it to swim long distances without tiringit begins to subsist primarily on clouds of algae, while still eating the occasional small meal
>>42490529these Bozol develop a more universal mandible in order to widen their food base, a simple jaw + jawbone develops, its teeth are very simple and suited for a generalist diet. their back legs, largely redundant, fade away over time and their eyesight improves
>>42490472Thes Bzols grow largers and meatier as they must sometimes endure long periods of wandering in search of carrion to feed on
>all these bottomfeeder slugs
>everything in this picture is now deadWELP
>>42491247wew nice drawingwhat a waste only mudslugs now
>>42489892"Fancy Bzol" appear, using flashy eyespots to scare off sight based predators.
>>42491293>sight based predatorswhat sight based predators?
>>42491247>>42491278Pretty nice, it's sad that only my most pityful creation endures. ( >>42489205 blurry sandworm)
>>42491247Well look at the bright side, we get a snapshot of how life was before the great extinction event. The ancient Saturdia era, which now give way to the Mondia era.
>>42491303Like, uh...as of now, two species of Braf, but they lack a predators with eyes, so I doubt it'd do much anyway.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permian%E2%80%93Triassic_extinction_eventIt was a real thing though.But that doesn't me EvoM is not a huge Homosexual
Point made. The butthurt can stop. Next time whoever make the new thread can just be more sparing with extinction. Moving on.
>>42491457>Needing things that aren't BzolI don't even get it.
Bubble Algea adapt their gas bladder so that they can control bouyancy depending on conditions.
>>42491495The Bzad, or best-zol as I call them, went extinct though.
>>42491247Man' i'm gonna miss the mammoth braf. I wanted to see giant crustacean men with glowing tusks someday.
>>42489205Some algae evolve to develop flower-like protuberances. However, those aren't used for reproduction; they rather serve a brainless communication purpose, mechanically changing color depending on the environmental conditions, and therefore indicating (through very simple photosensitive mechanisms) in which direction the colonies should grow and develop.
>>42489205Some Bite-Cerr, now Biecherr, have become more sensitive to heat. Over time, patches have developed on their flippers which are able to detect radiant heat. AKA primitive infrared vision
The Speedy Braf has evolved in order to use its larger fins to swim both faster, and with more maneuverability. Its eyes have evolved in order to discern colors better, although it has made its eye area more...colorful.This has caused their sense of smell to become less used, and isn't as powerful as before.
>>42491363that's more of an omnivore/scavenger
>>42491687do you use a pad/tablet to draw in paint?I still have a hard time with just my mouse or touchpad
>>42491739I thought that was a nose not an eye
>>42491830Holy shit, I think I made a huge mistake.
Cerrs become more elongated and agile to catch a widen variety of prey, as food has been scarse.>>42491814I hated using a tablet for the longest time myself, but it really does help with alot of thing.
>>42491851The Speedy Braf realizes "oh shit! I'm trying to see things with my nose" and comically crashes into a rock and dies.
>>42491293>>42491673Some fancy bzols start feeding on polyhemera algae in order to get more easily their colorful proteins. Soon they develop special appendages that let them pick the pigments directly in the heart of the plant, in a similar way to butterflies feeding on nectar.
The ambushing Braf develop a more independent mouth part to better reach and catch prey
I'm surprised no one has made an adaptation to get to the syrupy goop inside the algaehedron, or did that just go unnoticed.
With the introduction of non-seafloor based predators, the addition of simple light detecting organs become crucial to the survival of The Spiny BzolThey also got pink blood.That's not an evolutionary trait, that's just a thing that became.
>>42491814Mouse and a Paint-like program for linux. It'd be better if I was using my other computer with Paint.
>>42491946Some polyhemera algae evolve in way favorable to symbiotic bzols, producing more nectar and in a more accessible way, in exchange growing on their dejections and being protected from more agressive parasites.
>>42491980I think that was hex algae, not algaehedron.
>>42491205On their long migrations between algae fields, the refuse of a mass extinction can be found everywhere. To defend themselves from predators while out in the open underwater wasteland, some Bzols have taken to nesting inside the remains of the larger armored organisms that once flourished.Cuebzol's tuck themselves away when danger is near, and haul their skulls around as a equal parts shield, and grim trophy.Sorry to contribute to the bzol explosion. I promise i'll focus more on the others from here
>>42492192Don't be sorry, that's funny. Each geological period has its florishing families of living beings. On this world and in this time, the florishing family is bzols.
>>42489205The humble bolz has begun to swim in large swarns of flesh pickers.
>>42491868Some Cerrs start growing drastically in size, becoming more powerful predators and living longer, but needing a lot more energy. If it continues this way, they'll become the new behemoths of this ocean!
>>42492192Those are adorable.>>42491049New algaehedrons begin to sprout off of the root structures anchoring them to the shallows of the sea floor. Also growing a bit larger. They're at least clearly visible to the naked eye, if they weren't already.
>>42491951Some ambush braf begin growing extra pincers and develop a paralyzing venom.
>>42491951Some braf develop new eyes specially adapted to their ambushing activities. Most species escape them less easily, but fancy bzols finally find a use for their shiny eyespots!
>>42489205A strain of primitive algaehedron has emerged which sprout off the sides of older spheres without separating. Too small to be seen induvidually, they appear as green floating blobs.
>>42491895Oh crap that's funny.
>>42492128In order to make a better use of their colors, symbiotic algae's body become darker. Their skin also becomes more thick, discouraging predators and parasites while favorizing symbiots.
>>42491498The bubble algae develops several long tendrils to soak in detritus and minerals in water trailing behind it is it floats
>>42492443Some Cerrs get a camouflage in order to approach more easily their preys. They love to hide in algaehedron colonies of diverse species.
>>42489205The last remaining free swimming braf, now surrounded by an abundance of prey and and very little competition, is allowed to evolve in a way that lets it intake as much food as possible. It's jaws fuse together into a single scoop-like beak, and it's stomach becomes loose and fexible. The fucking hideous Ghoul Braf uses it's whiplike tail to propel itself as it searches for grazing herds of Bzol, then scoops as many as it can into it's gullet.Also it's the most freakish thing i've ever been responsible for and i kind of hope it goes extinct. I just wanted to introduce a jawbone.
>>42493149I hate to beak it to you but...>>42493149
>>42491946Some symbiotic bzols, following the path of hyper cerrs, get a camouflage too in order to avoid their predators. They still feed mainly on what symbiotic algaehedron give them 'willingly'.
>>42493171Fuck mean to say >>42491163
>>42493171>>42493197Oh cool. Either way maybe we can see things start to stray from breaks and pincers. I've noticed most evolution threads end up with giant insect even the few times they get to civilization stage. What we really need is an internal skeleton
The years of spring trapping and acting as a bottom feeder have not made for a good existence with all the competition.The Spined Bzol has taken to shuffling itself around the sea floor with its stubby little knees, and rips the bottom feeders right out of the sand with its powerful jaws. Moving around also helps it pick up plants of course.
>>42491205Some of the fattest species of bzol, finding themselves too often the easy prey of ferocious predators, start migrating in the abyss and adapting themselves to these cold places, getting even bigger and using their fat as a protection. Their legs become palms, and they now go close to the surface only occasionally to find food.
>>42493149The braf's jaw merely grows to collect more food.
>>42493599Jesus fucking christ.Why... why is it called Zack?
>>42492946Some of the bubble algae are carried into shallower water by ocean currents, and anchor themselves in the mud
>>42493651After Zack Braff, of course.
>>42493665Sorry my friend, I don't understand your meme, could you explain what you mean with words?
The braf, with very little predators has its shell once again weakened, although the decrease in weight caused the Braf to become even faster, while the fangs on its face continues to grow harder, and harder.Their eyes have improved in order to better see the ambush predators, while moving more, and more where the nose used to be, with the nose moving out to the sides.Due to the remergence of creatures either on the ground, or ambush predators, the Braf has gone back to its ways of swimming up into the air, and charging straight downward, using its hyperextended fangs in order to pierce through the creatures on the ground, while remaining out of range of their defenses.
>>42493707U cheeky cunt m8
>>42493711This is no meme.This is THE PUSSY BUSTER
>>42490299some of the smaller, weaker braf have evolved long thin proboscis's to pierce and drink the insides of algaehedrons.
>>42489205Some of the Finned Cerr, now called Finsser, have developed a wider-set mandible, allowing them to bring food into their mouths more easily.
>>42493066Living among luminous algaehedron, the cerrs develop a rudimentary flower mimic on one end of their thingies.
>>42493978michael cerr. Well played.
Alright, for fun lets stat some of these creatures. Here's some stats I just thought of(Aka just made up)Senses:(Sight/smell/taste/Hearing/Feeling, apply if they have it)Speed:Intelligence:Offensive Capability:Defensive Capability:Mate:(how many kids it creates)Life Expectancy:Cooperativism(how they work together same species)Social(with other species)
>>42493919The finsser's dorsal fin grows longer and sail-like, stabilizing it as it swims after prey.
>>42491051In pursuit of drifting algae floating atop or near the surface of the water like the bubble algae, few of these small ray-like bzol use their wings as floats. Thus allowing them to partially surface and glide across the water, skimming up their fill before returning underwater to hunt for another large bloom.With most predators looking toward the seabed, these bzol are relatively peaceful and secure.
>>42494221And one without the water level for easier editing
>>42494221>>42494228Finding reprieve from predators and abundance of algae on the surface of the water, these bzol begin to develop larger wing-like fins to float with minimal effort. At the same time, its legs shrink from less use.
>>42494205With increased focus on their tail for stability and speed, the Finsser's pectoral fins begin to shrink from decreased use. In addition the sail-fin grows deeper and thicker, providing a flexible support within the Finsser's body.
>>42493978Many of the extinct species of yester-eon had shells and mandibles. In the distant future, some Scientist will marvel at the keratin-rich layer of rock they will uncover in their studies, but for now, the species have a cornucopia of dead things to eat, such that even the most fierce of predators can venture to the sea-bed for a nibble.All those hard shells, spiky protuberances and mandibles it's been shoving down it's gullet has had a profound effect on the Cerr. Losing the bottom facing eye so as to re-align it's face-tacles downward, it's head has widened, accommodating an influx of hard, dense material to form the base of a skull.It slinks along the sea-bed, tail raised as a juicy lure, waiting for something to nibble it as it nibbles the corpses of those long past. When something draws close, it swings its heavy head upwards, grasping it's prey with the three face tentacles to drag it down and consume it.
Bumping this sweet thread
>>42492157>The Algae Orbs haev adapted to fill their hollow inside with gas to float to the surface away from many predators, and with nutrient rich slurry to feed the colony in dire straits.I remember cause I wrote it
>>42491247NIce, great art.I would say it wasnt futile.Its just like a picture in a history book or maybe a wallinfo scene in a museum.This is a snap shot of the Late Sundarium on this Evo-earth.
>>42491951The Ambush Braf gains musclemass and the smarts to bait, using it's tongue to simulate a small ambush hunter it lures other predators and when those get close enough to be detecter by their poorly placed photoreceptive patch they "spring to action" stretching up to 2 times their lenght to try and stab/bite at their prey. Doing this leaves parts of their body shell-les which leaves them vulnerable when their poor sight doesn't differenciate the number of predators in the area.
>>42495853Pic, because I'm a retard.
Daily remainder to not let this happen again
>>42492946Another bubble Algea strain sink to the bottom, where it the roots grow into the surface. While several bubbles grow longer, enable it while eaten the top drifts away, finding a new place to root.
>>42492946Other bubble Algea grow longer tendrils and get tougher fibers.They interwine and form big colonies with a dense web, which cant easily get sucked into herbivors mouths anymore.Since the biggest threat of Bzol cant eat them fully, many other Algeas can be found drifting in these colonies.
>>42495577Okay. I guess I just missed that part.>>42492511With the Probiscbrafs drinking their sap, many algaehedrons are left a bit deflated, and left without their sugar reserves. A previously rare trait has become commonplace through this species. Smaller orbs develop inside of each other. If an outer layer should be punctured, they won't loose all of their sugar, and if it is outright eaten, they'll still have a leaf.I image the layers still being quite translucent.
>>42496383The pillar algae roots itself further into the ground, while the air pocket stretches the algae much further into the sea, able to absorb more food, and growing into larger colonies.
>>42491163As they evolve the Bozol's jaws grow larger with more developed teeth. To support this heavier head section, they begin to develop a semi-rigid series of cartilage along their back. To accommodate this, their back legs move slightly farther back.
>>42493689Since the light is more intense some develope a sunreactive outer membrame to protect against too much sun and gettng dry.
>>42494228Come my son, join us in Bzoleaven, where the surface is wave-less and all the algae is that nice, stringy stuff, none of the rubbish clumps you find sometimes.
>>42496533Some of these colonies develop flat structures that are thinner and more efficient at photosynthesis. The central plant hardens up and acts as storage for excess sugar produced.
>>42496383other PillarAlgea grow longer and tougher tendrils.
Why the fuck did you render nearly everything extinct? Why are evo players these days so fucking afraid of splits in the evolutionary tree? Why do they want such linear games?
>>42497783Because one time on earth 90% of everything went extinct, so now every 100-1000 years everything must go extinct
>>42497797OP is a faggot who ruined a perfectly fine and interesting evo game. I hope he's happy.
>>42497489The ones with stronger legs can walk faster and climb better, the species gets frontlegs with more muscles.
>>42493718>Their eyesThose aren't eyes, it's a nose. They are sightless, relying entirely on super acute smell, hearing and touch.
>>42491687Some biecherr grow more acclimated to the deep oceans and their jaws reflect their change in diet - rooting around in the nutrient rich vents provides them a steady died of shells (which they can crack open) but also a steady died of smaller unnamed pressure-resistant organisms.The albino Biecherr is not still very resistant to high pressure, however.
>>42497783>>42497831yes, im sad that some interesting species are gone.But we have less branches to look after and can grow new branches. So we can now say last thread Sundarium, this thread is now the Monarium peroid.
>>42493532The larger bzol develop larger mouths and a long, abrasive tongue in order to grab large clusters of bubble algae that have woven together, and eat whole clusters at a time.>>42497831ok
>>42489185Some Bronf (that's the proper name for the armored braf descendant, but everyone forgot that) in this new era are also armored, similar to their long-lost relatives. But this form of armoring is different. It is a light segmented armor under a layer of soft flesh. Durable, but lighter and more flexible.The start of a skeleton.
>>42498004first skeleton?!damn*deletes pic*
Guys, what if we correct the whole 'Braf have eyes' mistakes by making their noses into a weird sensory organ that is basically a weird form of 'sight' via a mix of smell and vibration sense. So from now on all Braf species have this. It's probably not as good as actual sight overall, but it's very specialized.Not sure how that would work, however.
>>42493503Since Bzol couldnt have scale and be fast enough to survive.Now the stronger legs let them with more armour survive. A new branch with scales and harder spines (thorns) evolved.
>>42498004>>42494426First Contenders for this planets upcoming Skeleton War.Someone develop a bovine species so we can get milk.
>>42497865To support even stronger legs the Bozol develop extensions on the cartilage in their back. Developing a primitive rib-cage to support the increased muscle mass. They're front limbs too begin to grow primitive cartilage to reinforce them, further adding power.
>>42492313Some Bolz specialized hunting between roots and tendrils develope grabbing fingers like we know from chameleons.
>>42497887The albino cherr seems to develop more advanced heat-sensing capacities (ie: more dots) in the deep oceans.
>>42498246The cartilage favors the muscle legs. Over time next generations grew round cartilage for the muscles. This results into strong legs which they can use to leap away if a enemy comes near them and swim away.
>>42498646Over time, some Albino Cherr grow some hard tissue. Through to selection these can survive the pressure in the deep which let them develope a tissue exo skeleton for the deep sea.
>>42498902>>42498646The missing picture
>>42495864The abundance of rotting carcasses provides the nutrients for the muscles of the Ambush Braf to keep developing.But the diminished variety and quantity of prey forces them to develop locomotive ablilities anew, the result is the ablility to jump and "glide" with their new fins to controll their path.They glide far and borrow again evaluating if there is food in the area, if not, they jump randomly again.They are still swimming practically blind tho.
>>42498234>What is >>42493532 >>42497999
>>42498234exoskeletons you meanmore bugs as always
>>42498234This guy is gonna be the first with a skeleton.>>42498652Speaking of which.The Bozol's cartiliaginous spine calcifies, becoming the very first bone. It also develops a proper skull and jaw.It's rear limbs develop into strong paddles to increase hopping distance and allow it swim more effectively close to the bottom.
>>42499507Nah, skeleton has started evolving.
>>42494341>>42496533>>42497607With free floating algae becoming more difficult to filter, often choking the newly born Bwaal schools to death, the creatures have developed a few methods of adapting. Still having few predators so high up, the Bwaal have gone further inland to the muddy riverbanks where rooted bubble algae grow in abundance; having nothing there to feed on them. After generations of living on the muddy banks, the Bwaal's large, gliding fins have narrowed down into thick flippers it uses to flop itself through the mud. Today, most Bwaal live their entire life with part of their body above water, using vegetation to shield them from the direct sunlight.Though not all Bwaal have them (since it's not much of a concern with shallow bubble algae), some that still feed on the rooted tangles of the webbed variety have developed simple grinding teeth out of hardened tissue. This helps break up the tangled roots and helps them from choking to death. The shovels it once used to catch drifting algae have gone unused, and become mostly vestigial, or a decoration used to compete for mates.
>>42498004In time, the crude internal skeleton of the Bronf complexifies itself.
we need more lower orders of life here, its just algae at the bottom as is.
>>42499857Too good to Bottom Feed like the rest of us?
>>42500000bottom feed on what?there needs to be some lower orders like plankton
>>42500000Oh my, Quips.
>>42500011Other Bottom Feeders!
>>42500011That stuff generally goes un-described but exists.
>>42494341>>42497632>>42499694Meanwhile, out in the open ocean, a different variety of Bwaal adapts to the difficult to swallow, thick clusters of bubble algae. It ignores the problem completely. With little competition and predation, the Bwaal thrive near the surface. Combined with the abundance of new oxygen in the atmosphere from all the emerging plant life near or above sea level, the Bwaal are allowed to grow to increasingly monstrous sizes. A series of fatty, rib-like “supports” even form to keep the enormous sea slug from collapsing on itself. The Colossus Bwaal is a titan the size of a minivan, that uses it’s wings to glide slowly across the surface, expending little energy compared to the amount of algae it can intake. With such a large mouth and throat, the colonial bubble algae is swallowed and digested with relative ease. However it may be a short lived branch, as over-grazing algae blooms can cause great distances between meals for the amount of energy and oxygen the creature would need to intake.(i'm not totally sure my biology checks out on this one, but i thought it was a neat idea. If no one likes it just ret-con it i guess.)
>>42500031pretty much, >>42499694 feeds on algae, dies and is feed for the bottom scratchers.
>>42494426A rare subspecies of Cerr has developed the skull further, developing a sort of shield for the back of the skull, and a bone spear coming from the mouth, where once prey has been impaled, the three face tentacles then take the prey off of the spear. Sometimes it will go after larger prey, only taking a chunk of flesh then running off with its meaty prize.
>>42500011I don't really see how we need more than we have. So far the algae covers a range from sand rooted slimes to giant floating colonies. From there you have the small herbivores like the basic wandering bzol like here >>42492192 >>42493203 >>42491205 , the things that eat them, and the things that eat those. So far our food chain checks out okay for as small as it is. If anything we need more top predators now that our lass batch was wiped out. Everything currently lives in a middle area of eating migrating slugs.
The Bozol, now Bazal, have evolved a proper, if rudimentary, skeleton. They're jaw has also developed out of their skull, primitive teeth have been replaced by a bone/tooth hybrid in the form of shearing jaws. Their front limbs are even more powerful and they've developed large pads to aid in walking and hopping. Their back limbs develop bones as well.These prove to be massive boons when hunting.
>>42500274getting pretty swozole there
>>42500291https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrY2_4XoWnoYou fucking know it.
>>42500011>>42499857i see it more like this >>42500148but mostly what we dont describe here are eggs and larves in the zooplankton.But we dont have a pure filter species for zooplankton thats right.
>>42500371I imagine we have a bunch of Phytoplankton that just goes un-described..
>>42494364With the increasing number of hard skeletons, the cartilaginous Finsser adapt a new form of mouth, one whose mandibles are on the inside, capable of crushing bones, meat, and plant-matter alike. This makes it easier for the Finsser to digest a wider variety of foods.
>>42493599The Ghoul Braf has difficulty raising it's head without expending excessive amounts of energy. It's soft body and poor locomotion make it easy prey for hunting cerr or the spring loaded ambush braf.While a spine and muscular system would easily rectify this dilemma, the Braf is a naturally born rebel, and rejects the notion because it's what all the cool kids are doing. Instead it develops two fatty lobe fins it uses to leisurely drag itself along the sea floor, saving energy for quick bursts of speed when necessary.
>>42498192Spined Bzol develop shelling on their underbellies in defense against Spring Braf >>42498985The Creatures as a whole develops thick legs to drag that fat body around.
>>42500502Bozol did skeletons first.I'd really love it if someone updated the plants that have started growing on land.
>>42500371>>42500393>>42500011>>42499857Heres an idea, if we're missing something, make it.The planktocerr diverged greatly from their predatory cousins, they have shrunk considerably, slightly larger than algae. They have a bulbous back to contain nutrients, and have developed six small legs for crawling round on the large nets of algae. Their pincers have become more broad, to be better suited for an herbivore's diet.
Anyone got any idea of when the next Evolution Chart will be up?
>>42500658When you make it bitch
>>42492611Since There are so many preying predators, One branch evolves a tounge that resemblance a big juicy Algea
>>42500697I ain't the OP, Slut.
>>42500047>Giant corpses makes way for generation booms of scavengers and the things that eat them>large enough that pretty much anything can evolve to parasite them>Species of algae start growing on their back as the first plants with exposure to open air So much potential that i won't have any part of because i can't draw it for shit.
>>42500723What is this, a Braf for ants?
>>42492611Other Poison Braf developes a thin membran between the fangs to capture small larves, eggs and other small species. Trapped in this membrane he releases poison to numb the prey
>>42500393yes right, phytoplankton includes algea, so i had only Aldgea on my mind.>>42500502Is this a filter species? Reading back posts i would suggest it collects everything that fits in it?
>>42500854It's omnivorous. It drags it's jaw along the seabed and scoops up algae and small bzol, then expels the sand out it's gills. Less of a filter species and more of a pelican or gulper eel.
>>42500646>Heres an idea, if we're missing something, make it.I do it, since friday.But we can discuss evo stuff. Or cant we?>>42500760Silly on Evo Planet there are no ants.Naa, the picture was this small, but you can see what its about.Thats adequate enough for me.
>>42496643Algaehedrons develop shore-side colonies of reserves, both for the collection of sunlight, and to avoid the sea dwelling sap-drinkers from killing off their whole sugar reserve.
>>42498985The new armor ( >>42500574 ) and low deeps of their prey ( >>42500047 ) favor the selection of the springiest and maneuverable of them, resulting in a stronger Spring Braf that can, if the water is not THAT deep, break the surface, this leads to some of them striking and taking bites of the Colossi Bwaal.
>>42496822Algae towers can increasingly be found in the deeper oceans, where they cluster around magma vents that are not overly shallow. An apparent mutation has allowed chemical synthesis to occur. The truly deep oceans and effective chemical synthesis are still beyond reach.
>>42500951oh, ok thx>>42493599Since the ability like the Ghoul Braf to develope fat cells, other sport big fat lumps which helps them to float higher.
>>42501261>>42500574Gonna be one Fat Ocean.I'm glad.
>>42501110>>42499694Big steps like these are always exciting. Finally getting to land bitches!
>>42501324Except for swole bozol.
>>42501388Baby Steps!>>42501405They're fat in their own special way.
>>42498915The deep chair evolves a fork; forgoing some of the capacity to snap and break shells and root, it has developed simple beak-molars to grind and chew the nutritious algae now found in the deeper parts of the ocean. It is effectively omnivorous, eating anything that it can sense and milling around in larger numbers.
>>42501615Looks nice and spoopy.
>>42496822The ones with bigger umbrella tops get more sun and grow bigger and quicker,
>>42496822Other Algeas develope the ability that the outer membrane hardens as protection.
>>42501719It's a "random and quirky" way to say spooky
>>42497607Because of the tide and the herbivores, some Shallow Algea coolects in the air bubble cell water.Now this species is able to life in tide zones and on land without draining.
>>42502244Holy Fuck! What are we getting ourselves into.
>>42502244>>42502264>>42502269Cherrfag hereThis was not intended and any resemblance to creatures fictional is entirely coincidence
>>42494364In a curious development, the pectoral fins of some Finsser develop into lobes on either side of the head. These Fan-Head Finsser Now called Fansser, have an appearance similar to a flatworm, with their body now flapping its membrane like the wings of a ray to swim through the water.
>>42500081The Cerr undergo a sensory revolution. The primitive electro-sense nodes that line their body remain unchanged, but the large trio on their head become enhanced, purple points housing far more sensitive cells to afford a more refined form of their electro-vision.Accompanying this sharper view of the world around them is an exploit to help them stay hidden. Bony ridges form that allow more of their pseudo-flowers to be displayed, affording them even more camouflage among the algaehedron.
>>42502607Are we going to get flower snakes/lizards? :D
>>42501779These Algae soon outgrow the need for the air bubbles to lift them, the hardened membrane providing more than enough support. This allows them to stay above water when the tides in shallow waters run low, providing them more exposure to sun, causing them to begin growing much bigger than before.
>>42501110Algaehedrons completely remove their main reserves fro the water, to the predator-less world of dry land. They root against the sandy shoes, yet still leave tendrils to dip into the ocean and filter in water. Vast networks of these stretch crossed anywhere that there sits loose soil or sand.
>>42503784from* Shores*Damn ye keyboard.
>>42502244I heard there was evolution going on here.
>>42503967Maybe we should go back in the water.
A group of Colossal Bwaal have developed a way of farming net bubble algae they do this by allowing the algea to grow on special spots of extremly soft tissue. The algae then feeds it's new protector by growing small balls full of sugar, and fiber then shoots them off their main body via pressure build up. By having a small constant supply of food, the "Farmer Bwall have become smaller and developed smaller mouths as they don't eat as much free roaming bubble algea.
Pic for new bubble algae.
>>42489205Algehedrox developed a darker pigment to better assist in photosynthesis. It also happened to be that the pigment was toxic. The short lived algae reproduced, died, thrives in shallow coastal waters. the bodies of dead aquatic life will no doubt sustain the bottom feeders.
>>42501186The newest generation of Spring Braf learn to orientate themselves by smelling the water with their tongues, this coupled with the steady development of fins gives them the versatility to either ambush fast creatures or chase-hunt the ones slower than them.
>>42504192>was literally drawing something like this when this was posted.Well alright then never mind. Here's the art anyway so i don't feel like i wasted my time.Was going to be a new strand of bubble algae that used it's webs to stick to Bwaal backs, that way they can spread more via seeding as the animal swamBut it's alright, i can play with this.
>>42500491In addition to a random change in fin shape, the Finsser's enhanced diet has allowed it to produce more advanced eye-spots that can sense heat and light, allowing it a better chance at evading predators, and tracking prey and plants.
>>42503139Algea trees develop deeper, stronger, and more complex root systems over time.
>>42504598You know, even if both ideas are close to each other, they can cohabit without fusionning. There are lots of different species ressembling each other in the real world. There's convergent evolution, too.
>>42498487Bolzmeleon continues to adapt to it's environment.
Man I've always been a bitch for stuff like this, but I can't draw for shit. Eagerly reading, friends. Only been through a couple evolution threads before, still coming to terms with keeping track of all the big contenders. Personally, I'm rooting for >>42504554 muh springtraps.
Thread saved for charts later
>>42500574The Spined Bzol brings itself closer to the shoreline, its tail shrinking as it's no longer needed for swimming, their eyes doing the same as the shallower waters allow more sunlight to beam into them, thus the smaller eyed are less likely to suffer loss of sight or irritation.A slight alteration is made to their jaws, those once accustomed for scooping and pinching now becoming better for cutting as plants such as >>42504637 >>42503784 become more primary sources of food. Occasional dips into the surface world are made to cut the stems of Algaehedrons and drag them back into the ocean, though the Bzol cannot breath open air.
>>42501234Despite the marginal increase in predation, the deep towers develop their chemical synthesis capacities and grow much larger. They can now be found at many areas in the deep oceans.
>>42504505Some shores become breeding grounds for Septic Algaehedrox. Beds of decaying algae from previous generation feed bacteria that is dangerous to many herbavores.
>>42504637With stronger roots, these Algae Tree can devote more energy to grow taller instead of wider.
>>42504775anyone ready to make another 12 with little to no difference but the specific kind of algae they eat?>>42504821Thanks, have a tiny timeline, the red line is The Doom. the only not present there is the original Braf>>42504821thanks
>>42503967Shoo, shoo. Go away Yu-mel.
>>42503967What's the story behind that one?
>>42501718The umbrella top algae form long whispy tendrils from the bottom of these caps, each with weak toxin stingers along them. These kill microscopic creatures that come in contact with them, drifting upwards into the caps where they are dissolved into nutrients. These caps thus have small pools of liquid creatures, lighter than water, near the top of the cap, and is slowly absorbed into the "stem" from there.
>>42501615Some of the deep cherr have branched off and asserted some of their more predatory genetic information; they have developed partially serrated beaks in keeping with their fellows that dwell in the shallower areas. They are opportunistic cannibals and use their increasingly effective thermal sight to hunt.
>>42499762The Bronf becomes more articulated, in most fins and its body.
>>42504609In a bizarrely random mutation, some Finsser begin to produce an oily coat. This offer little advantage, except that its strange reflective properties can confuse some predators with weak eyesight.
>>42505231http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/18434333/It appears in its final form in this part. There are 2 earlier parts though.
>>42502502Fanssers become more horizontally ridgid, reducing their agility but increasing their top speed.
>>42505301Whoever is doing this, thank you, I made the unoriginal dropping Bronf, and can't draw for shit, so it was mostly just lines and bucket tools.
>>42505558some of us are sill there.In mys desesperation I even used Character Maker Studio and Photoshop CS4!
>>42505301The Bronf gains Piercing fang-things on its mandibles so as to ensure prey cannot escape.>>42505558Thanks! I would recommend that if you use MS Paint, to zoom in and use the pencil tool instead of the line tool.
>>42505656>tfw when you buy a drawpad for evo threads
>>42505699I use MS PaintGet on my level
>>42505336Some of the Oily Finsser (now-dubbed Slicsser), have begun to move closer to the coast, using their fins to prop themselves up along the seabed around Algae Tree forests.With their protective oily coating, they can leave the water for short periods of time, and travel overland from one tidal pool to another, allowing them to reproduce and lay eggs in these safe areas.
>>42505916I can only begin to imagine what that thing would look like sloshing its way through skummy, stagnant tide pools
>>42504598>>42504192When the Farmer Bwaal die, the "garden" algae that's colonized on it's back often survive the journey back down to the sea floor. Over the years, these colonies of bubble algae have begun to retake the seabed as they're forced to relocate. They continue growing off the decomposing animal and into the sand, using the complex of tendrils to anchor the plant. Pockets of spores also appear in the place of the bubble algae's bubbles, and it's body grows long and thinner as to sway with the ocean currents without being uprooted.The colonies of "Graveyard" algae, have begun to spread via spore along the sea bed, not only near the corpses of the Bwaal. Covering parts of the mostly barren seabed in a primitive seagrass.
>>42504851The Spined Bzol's shelling becomes more articulated, allowing better maneuverability.
>>42489205>>42489205In a bizarre turn of events, a divergent group of the free-swimming brafs take to developing an appetite for the abundance of plant life available in the oceans, and become more omnivorous.The new Brafipods, not much larger than 3-4cm beginning feeding off of the many algae plants in the oceans. They're mandible shrink and become claw-like, as well as serrated for tearing apart small bits of plant matters, and ripping flesh on other organisms. They also grow two smaller mandibles that guide food into the mouth. Brafipods grow a primitive spine in their tail, with fin-like chitin protruding from the sides. They also develop two pairs of adhesive stickers to climb on large algae plants with.Among all these changes they also develop the first complex internal circulatory system for better metabolism and gas exchange, giving them lots of room to adapt to new environments, and proliferate.
>>42505073Since its harder to get water and nutrition up to the top, the Algea has to alter its chemical composition in the upper part.Algeas which could deposit transport and waste material in the membran could improve the nutrition/waterflow.If a deposit is too full, it will just fall down. This has a sideeffect to attract other species which fertilize the earth around the algeas.
>>42502502Some Fanssers start to detach their main head section from their fin, they also develop a small ridge, on their backs to help with turning.
>>42505297The Deep Cher gains an additional back pair of fins that make movement better.
>>42505968Probably pretty terrifying, depending on how large these things actually are.
>>42505916Overtime some Slicssers mutate and sport ceratin deposit at the fins base. These mutated ones can travel over land better now, avoid obstacles and have a better body densitiy while using their fins.
>>42506477More like Algae poop I'd say
>>42489185Is there an archive?
>>42505694The Bronf gains a Rather large, yet weak-sighted thermal sensor. The fins become jointed (this includes the internal skeleton of course.
>>42504192The "Garden" Algea on the Farmer Bwaal has developed new nutrient pods, they now have air pockets close to the membrane of the pod allowing them to float to the surface of the water making it easier for the Farmer Bwaals to consume them.
>>42505405Because of competitive pressure Fanssers move deeper, where they feed as one of few on the deep sea Algeas. Over time, while moving deeper, grown body carapace and tail shells help them against pressure. As a result its also a protection against Deep Cher >>42506248 and even helps to swim faster than the predator.
>>42506586I don't know about an archive on the cloud or anything public, but I've saved everything to disc
>>42500646Some Planktocerr in the search of more food sources found the wast product of the Algae Trees this group quickly adapted they grew a thin membrane covering their tow small pincers and a set of small grabbing teeth on the rim, their nutrient stores became smaller to make way for organs more capable of breaking down the wast better
>>42506477>>42506507yes its kinda poop.didnt thought about it while i made it.Its a full circle "eat my poop and i eat you poop".Now i wonder about myself.
Sorry here is the image
>>42507184Meh, plenty of animals feed off poop.
>>42506468Other Slicssers begin to return to deeper water, using there new adaptatons to scour the sea floor for food. Their eyes and mouths begin to migrate the bottom of their heads.
>>42507022Looks like something you could buy at staples.I like it.
>>42491247>>42495836These are really nice, reminds me of images such as this. One thing that most evo threads generally lack is a sense of scientific realism. This thread is a magnificent example of the opposite. I hope this thread is still active tomorrow morning after I wake up.Sorry for increasing the image limit, but I think it's pretty cool and suiting.
>>42507277It looks like something that you would plug into a USB for power, but that does something mundane that could easily be powered from the wall.
>>42507308Those are burgress shale fossil creatures exactly like I was talking aboutAlso, if and when the thread dies, it will probably go back up at least once or twice more from the begining. That was sort of the point to begin with when the first dude posted it.
>>42506632The primitive brain of the Bronf develop and grow larger and more complex in order to support it's primitive heat detection mixed with it's super acute sense of smell and vibration.
>>42507247Top kek,damn you anon, i had to laugh for about 5 minutes.
why can't we go straight from the ocean, to flying again?
>>42507146Mite b cool to start some wiki. Maybe some additional rules?
>>42507437These threads are too common for a wiki. It'd be forgotten almost immediately As for rules i personally try to avoid touching anything i already had a part in. At least directly. Setting yourself up with an animal you have in mind then running away with it on your own with no one else contributing kind of defeats the purpose of the game.
>>42507273In a bizarre case of convergant evolution, the bottom dwelling Slicssers begin to return to swallow water and ever venturing out on to dry land, using newly developed mandible muscles to drag themselves along by their teeth.
>>42507437I've thought about how more rules would work myself, and in theory it would be great, but more then likely in practice it would suck. More rules would probably either just be ignored, ruin the fun, or turn to many players off from the game.I think it'd be more effective to just to let the players figure it out over time. This game has been alot cooler then the end of the last one, and the next might work even better.
>>42507433Because no evo thread is the sameAnd none of the species supported it. We even dont have anythinf like a crab or insekt this time, We have more Tardigrades and Fish like creatures.
>>42501234Despite predation and an increase in fauna in the deep oceans, the deep tower algae flourishes. It seems to cover nearly every vent or heated area of the deep oceans.
>>42507584Those fucking things are going to plug up all the volcanic vents on the damn planet and blow it up, just you watch.
>>42507575Hypothetically the bubble algae could have taken flight, but then I was fun to generous with extinction and they moved back into the deep to fill niches
>>42507633>far too generous*
>>42507494I had figured something like a wiki would be hard to manage.This is a very interesting game. I might lurk these threads gathering ideas for further implementation. A robot that scrapes threads and helps me compile evolutionary timelines and displays them somewhere shouldn't be too terribly difficult...
>>42507437>>42507494There was a time where it got kinda collected. but after a certain time its impossible to collect it.Too many ideas to sort.>>42507564>This game has been alot cooler then the end of the last one, and the next might work even better.I believe it was saturday and some beer involved. And for my its canon, that the Mulu destroyed all and only the primiteves species survived, aka our starting species.
>>42507633the extinction was a dumb idea anyway.Look at >>42495836The swimming insects on the top left are directly related to the gross pig slug on the bottom left, and the armored fish is directly related to the one in the sand. Things had already fanned out into tons of unique looking shit who's lineage would surprise you. But now it's just slug generation with the occasional chompy eel thrown into the mix. Everything's just too similar right now.
>>42507768Hopefully in time we'll see more biodiversity, assuming we A) have more threads and B) OP isn't an extinction-happy faggot.
>>42507755I disagree. The robot could comb the thread and look for tags in posts. For instance something like:Robot searches for an open bracket, and a close bracket.[Evolution Name]Then it would digest whatever text came next, and spit it back out as a description of the evolution.
>>42507390The creatures in the seas was becoming more and more deep and buried in the ground. And over time, the Bronf adapted do life on land.
>>42507633>bubble algeaSure it could, didnt thought it that way, So the previous old evo quest with the flying jellyfish and jet whales will be a highlight forever.
>>42507768>But now it's just slug generation with the occasional chompy eel thrown into the mix. Everything's just too similar right now.To be fair, purely out of dumb luck, the only thing to get wiped out were the Mulu and everything was equally distributed.
Seeing how this thread is quickly approaching the 300 post mark, I feel it would be a good idea to discuss extinction events. I know it bothered a few people. Myself even a little in the beginning. Seeing this thread, it can be a good thing if done occasionally. If we do one again, some changes need to be made. Maybe roll to see if one actually happens, determine what would be guaranteed to survive, and then roll for the rest?
>>42507833im not a programmer, so i relate to humans working.Sure a programm could work. Maybe even use the tag for related posts. The trickiest would be to differ "ancestors" or "related food"/"reason why".
>>42504554The Spring Braf, again thanks to their barely funtional senses end up washing in the shores embarrasingly often. This resulted in the development of a stronger exoskelleton and tiny legs, that let them return to water, for they tonge-smell is confused in air (it's also unbreathable for them) and they have no damn reason to leave water yet..
>>42507923I think if it had to be done, we should just have a straw poll on which creatures no one's interested in so there aren't as many offshoots that go nowhereBut still all it would do it limit possible outcomes even further. If there are a hundred useless nameless mutations floating around, no one's going to be constantly building off them anyway. So they might as well be extinct.So i really don't see the point.
>>42499619Countless generations (and missing links) later, the Bozol have fully formed (mostly) internal skeleton and a more complex biology. These are Vozol.
>>42492313A variation of bolz have appeared. Rather than picking, they stab and drink blood. Or whatever comes out. Xenobiologists dubs this the vampire bolz.
>>42508003Forgot to add:That said, i'm noticing this thread looks like it has a lot of one person just doing their own thing. There are at least two or three chains that look like one person setting up their baby and just going with it. Like i said here >>42507494 it feels like it really misses the point of the game. So i don't know maybe a few select extinctions can fix that a little. Still doesn't seem to have much point to it though.
>>42506632A new form of Bronf got rid of it's fins and replaced them with 3 sets of legs, the now crawl around on the ocean floor looking for their close relative the >>42506074 Brafipods to then catch and eat them they decreased in size, and have smaller mandibles to make it easier to catch their prey. Possibly called Bronstirs
>>42508073No image since the limit was reached :(
>>42508126Thus tolls the bell that calls for a new thread. A shame, I had a pretty spoopy evolution in the works.
>>42508070>i'm noticing this thread looks like it has a lot of one person just doing their own thingWhile it does LOOK like that, I don't think that happening as much as you'd think. I know at least a few of the long chains I had a hand in and people seamed to run with it.I just had a thought, maybe next thread we include a gimmick that if the post ends in a certain number or duobles or something, then the sepcies didn't make it.
>>42508183The evolution thread evolves
>>42508197I'm so meta even this acronym
*finishes image* >>42508126Damn...
>>42508285New thread I guess
Is there a new thread?
>>42508296I thought we'd continue this one a bit more.
>>42508070>>42508183>own thingI think yes, maybe not fully. For example, im kinda sort of this guy. The algea kinda get not much developement. But for me there should be a varying flora, for hiding, lurking or herbivores more than just "evolve to prevent predators"So i kinda pushed some specie evolves to a certain degree. But some anons cared for them too so i guess its about 50% me pushing them a long series.But i try to add several other species non-algea too.
>>42505727I remember this thread
