  • Will Wright's spinning head

    Click on the galaxy to view it. Zoom out and begin spinning the galaxy. After a few seconds, Will Wrights' head will spin out of it.

  • Growing in Cell stage

    When you emerge from the meteor, eat meat or plants to complete the "Eat" mission. You should grow in size. Keep eating until a cell eats another and reveals a gold shield. Swim into it, and keep eating. Mate to equip the part in the gold shield. After you grow, find a "Booster" (red and have more than two eyes), and defeat it. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it, and keep eating. After you grow again, find a cell that is leaving a pink trail. Defeat it, and stay out of the trail. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. Keep eating until you grow. Find a pink cell named "Pinky" or "Punky", and defeat it. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. After you grow two times, find a "Buzzy" (orange). This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. Keep eating until you finish the Cell stage.

  • Becoming an omnivore in Cell stage

    Use the following trick to become an omnivore, even if your Cell stage development chart makes you a carnivore or herbivore. Explore in the Cell stage until you find a cell with an omnivore mouth, which looks like a tube, and acquire it. Once you have it, evolve into the Creature stage normally, but do not delete the mouth. Shrink it and hide it behind another part. Then, even if the mouths you are allowed to select from are not omnivore mouths, you still have the omnivore mouth from the Cell stage. This is useful in a variety of ways. For example, if you are a carnivore all the way through the Cell stage but you want to make friends in the Creature stage, you normally cannot. You have to eat at least some creatures to survive.

  • Easy impressing in Creature stage

    During the Creature stage (right out of the tidal pool), you can get additional parts for your creature by impressing the alpha versions of the fellow inhabitants of your world. When you first approach them, sometimes others of their species will join in the game. The more of them there are, the more difficult it can become. Push the alpha away from the nest, and try to solo it out so that you only have to deal with him dancing, singing, etc. against your crew of followers.

  • Conquering planets in Space stage

    Note: This trick will start a war. Enable the "setConsequenceTrait space_zealot" code. A new tool called "Fanatical Frenzy" will appear in your "Socialization" tools. If you already had it, it will instantly be recharged. Use it on a planet, and it will automatically become yours. This also works on home worlds. However, unless you have over 35 points in your relationship with another empire or are far away from the other empire, they will most likely go to war with you. To determine your relationship (and the positive and negative factors affecting it), move the pointer over the image of the planet owner when over or on a plane. Continually use this trick against enemy home worlds while using your normal weapons on the rest of their planets until there are no other empires that are at war against you. You should now be in control of a large portion of the galaxy.

  • Start with domesticated animals in Tribal stage

    Have members of other tribes in your pack before completing the Creature stage. When you advance to the Tribal stage, they will be transformed into domesticated animals in your tribe's pen.

  • Easy "Epic Killer" achievement

    The only sure way to get this achievement is to lure an Epic into another Epic. Note: Save your game before you get to the battle with the Epics. An Epic creature is much bigger than the usual species. It can one-shot almost anything, even though its attack range of 3-7 is not very powerful to you. Epic creatures have 1,000 health. First, get a Spit weapon with at least 4+ Spit. Spit will lure the Epic towards you, but be careful so you do not get killed. Next, have two or three Pack members (Rogue recommended). Rogues are more powerful than a normal creature, but weaker than an Epic. Rogues have 250 health and do massive damage. Spit at an Epic creature, and make it follow you. Stay at a distance, and lure it to another. Find the two you want to battle. Once they start, find the one that will probably win. Start attacking the one that is about to win. This will increase your chances of getting the achievement. Once the Epic battle is over, the Epic that won and the one you attacked should be down to about 200 health or less. If not, quit to the main menu and restart. Constantly Spit until it is down to less than 10 health. Charge it, then Strike or Bite, and you will win and get the "Epic Killer" achievement. -From: Brian Pken
