Emergent Ecology

Posted September 20th, 2013 by Tynan Sylvester

I discovered some interesting emergent behavior in the game ecology today.

These Muffalo had been grazing in that closed-off area the whole game. So they’d largely denuded the area of grass. This left a lot of open space for the Saguaro cactus (which they don’t eat) to reproduce into, leading to a cactus boom. This isn’t something I ever thought of while creating the ecology, but it’s really interesting to see.

    That accidental feature sounds like it will be an awesome game changer
