Copied from slack: One thing I’ve been thinking about lately is how we provide , for example species name information to the player (once we get around to re-implementing the scientific name generator we had in about version 3.1 or 3.2 ) should the player know the species that likes eating them is called a “Primum Toxispikeum” or not?
Does it help with immersion to be provide this information?
Does it not?
if it does where do we display it before we add the thrive-pedia. As it’s not very fun to have to open a new screen and search in it for specific species names.
I can see it helping with immersion because you can know a species evolved from another by its genus. And ithe information would be right there.
Do we do it with tooltips? Do we have a little windows with a list of all species currently on screen on it?
Do we only tell the player when they kill one or get killed by one or an event happens? (That species being “devestated by disease” for example. )
So many options.
