I was digging around some of my older games when I came across 'WarZone 2100'. I had another go of it and thought that some of the features were pretty genius, so knowing you guys want to deviate as much from Spore as possible, I thought you'd probably benefit from this far superior 'civilization' gameplay style. Below is a link to a free singlelayer game with no sign up - it's pretty old, but a dev team is reviving it.

Just thought the tech and vehicle systems are worth pointing out. A brief overview is;
1) Research parts. (Chassis, turret, propulsion)
2) Create vehicle from said parts.
3) Manufacture vehicle.

A much more advanced version of this would be perfect for THRIVE. The parts could deviate from the WZ's template by adding other classes - armor, special equipment, additional parts (such as extra seats or a troop carrying part) etc.

Tell me what you guys think!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this what we have already? More complex, even?

Welcome to the project, Demongoat. You're completely right that that sort of tech advancement is perfect for Thrive- we're already using a system similar to what you suggested. Check out some thereads with the Tech Editor, Nation Editor, and Tech tree.

Remember our goals: simplicity, science, and playability. Keep them in mind always.

Oops! Sorry, obviously didn't look thoroughly enough.

Anyway, this is great news! Very glad to see that you guys are going for this approach.
Well, wish you guys the best of luck and see if I can help out in any way.
