copulation is almost required because it is the main cause of diversity, therefore natural selection. otherwise, since EVERYTHING would be asexual, evolution would happen at a MUCH slower rate. The Habitat you are in may become unsustainable after a while given that much time.

EDIT: BTW, that is your 200th post

before we put unblured mating in the game remember that no parent is going to let their child play a game with images like that in it

It's that or we get telly-tubby baby-making.

'Then the daddy gives the mummy a special kiss, and they get an egg. Then they get a baby and they live happily ever after.'

We really don't want that, that's the sort of we we want to avoid, aka Spore.

In short, this game is nature, and nature includes mating.

Copulation is not sexual reproduction. For example, most aquatic animals release their eggs and sperm into the water, as do amphibians. Copulation is only when it is internal.

Put it into the options box with a password to enable it and disable its blurring.

Simple.

Hold one, can I make one final post? Please? Pleease? To ask some questions? Please?

What password? How can we let players know what the password is? How do we stop younger players knowing the password?

Nope, it isn't, not from the coding site. If something will be used in mating by the game, we can easily detect it. The same applies for timing (For technical details look at my first post in the topic).

Unless you think the problem is in unfinished concept, then I agree.

QFT. Customizable "parental" controls also agreed. Perhaps by method of mating, if that wouldn't be too difficult. I wouldn't mind watching my fish spawn, but I'd rather not watch my aliens "going at it."

Edit: read date of last post. Sorry, scio, but I do think that's somewhat important. ^

No suicide button, if the player is intent on killing themselves, they can jump off a cliff, or shoot themselves, or become a criminal and get the death penalty. That way, they really will have to be serious, and they get more enjoyment from destroying themselves.

Far-future edit: Uteen of the far-past, surely you mean lack of enjoyment?

Erm... Why not just add a SKIP button when the mating is occuring?
Like a button that looks like this:

You're assuming kids are going to skip it just because that's what their parents would want them to do. I'm afraid it's not that easy... Maybe a 'view mating' button would work better, it won't be shown by default... But we might as well put an 'alien pornography' button if we're going to do that... And then there's the problem of how the computer knows what forms of mating would need censoring...

Scio, did you really forget to lock this thread after all that 'Let this thread die!' stuff?
