At the least, this game showed that the forum isn't dead per say, its just lacking in content or anything to talk about.

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 4

Boisei are organized into raid-tribes while Ergaster are still family-unit hunter-gatherers. So it sounds like you're saying that the brain size difference (roughly 200cc worth), coupled with Ergaster's usage of ranged weapons, could easily overpower and defeat a Boisei raid, even if Boisei had lar...

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 4

3. I feel like Saharan Boisei are a threat to Ergaster, which are my favorite. If I can somehow hamper Saharan Boisei, you'd better believe I'll do it. Saharan Boisei are about as much threat to Ergaster as Chimpanzees are to humans. So you're saying that we need to prepare for the coming chimp rev...

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 4

I know this is your vote, but with how these Boisei seem to be evolving, losing depth perception in favor of long range sight seems to be detrimental. A couple of the previous votes (including one of mine) push them towards more of a combat and raiding focus, for which depth perception and field of...

Time to do the job nobody likes doing:

Saharan Paranthropus boisei have increases in brain mass.
Homo rudolfensis have increases in brain mass.
Australopithecus sediba have increases in brain mass.
You're the real hero

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 4

Some Rudolfensis spread north across the Bering Strait Sediba develop an intimidating scream to scare off predators Saharan Boisei tribes become more disciplined/structured to facilitate more effective raiding and defense. I'm hoping to speciate rudolfensis once they split into north american and as...

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 3

Rudolfensis start smoking meat/fish/fruit to preserve over the harsh winters Saharan Boisei become larger and stronger to better fight Sediba become nocturnal to avoid other hominids Rudolfensis should hopefully stabilize enough for me to get them over to the new world next turn Boisei have some sp...

Also should probably specify which population of Rudolfensis you are referring to as well.
There's only one left.

Is my Boisei vote enough for them to speciate?

Re: The Guiding Lights Turn 3

Sediba steal spears from neighboring hominids I'm not totally sure what sediba's issue is, but weapons help hunt and keep out other hominids so it'll probably help. From what I was aware, we are in the Oldowan and Acheulean stages of tools. Composite tools like spears, iirc, don't exist. They'd be ...
