Nice. I mean that your creature skips over a stage, maybe because aliens brought them technology.

Spelunker
Spend at least an hour of org mode play in a cave.

Caver
Create a civilization in a cave.

Some of these names don't really make sense to me...

How does the game know how many philosophers in a nation?

Not quite what i meant? What? What did you mean? I think a better name would be 'Ur doing it wrong!'

I suppose its sought of like someone saying "I want to do that again." and ending up starting the game over again. Mostly Harmless is a reference to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the Vogons destroy Earth, Ford Prefect then comments that 'Mostly Harmless' is pretty good for a pile of disintegrated rubble.

The Game would probably use the percentage of philosophical discoveries compared to other discoveries and outputs.

I still don't quite get it, but oh well. I understood Mostly Harmless, despite not having read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I like the first three names. And as for the Meaning of Life, well maybe it would be easiest to calculate what percentage of research is being dedicated to societal (governmental, religious, etc.) researches. A high enough percentage would result in getting the achievement.

The Dark Ages
Make no advances in technology for 1000 years
This number can be changed, but it seemed like a simple amount of time.

Nuclear Winter/Radiation Sickness
Finish a war by launching nuclear weapons
I understand that just using a nuclear weapon doesn't cause a nuclear winter.

That's one small step...
Land on (one of) your planet's moon(s).

What's the weather like up there!?
Build a town on the top of a mountain.
Are we able to deffine something like "THAT is a mountain."?

We come in peace
Discover an alien race on another planet

War of the worlds
Declare war on an alien civilisation.

You can't do that!
Discover FTL travel (if we implement it)

-Set foot/fin/hoove/whatever on a celestial body (aside from your home planet) for the first time.
Make sure that the achievements aren't too much of an in-joke. Hitchhiker's is okay, because it's fairly well known. But i don't know what that Parasites thing is about, and if you have to explain it, it isn't funny.

And you doubled up on one already, Zim. Read Poisson's post above yours.

Fixed. I dunno about the Veil one, though. Tell me if it makes sense. After I wrote it I realised I accidentally referenced again. But it's less "inside".

Careful with the descriptions. How would we define rodent? Developing subterrainian civs should be enough.
