I've been thinking about this concept and, I've read about how you can be domesticated or domesticate an organism, but if you/they are large enouph could the things that domesticated you ride you, and vise versa.

Sounds good, saddles should currently be possible with the TE section with the organism dummies, and would allow you to select the riding position, though might be a bit harder to implement in earlier stages with no tech (it requires collision programming, if any managed to catch wheatley in portal 2, you can move from under him with no friction - so friction would have to be programmed in to work).

An intriguing thought.

Thankfully, the way we've planned our technology editor should allow a range of freedom big enough that you may just be able to do just what you describe. I'm not certain where this would serve much benefit, but if the player can ride a beast I see no reason a beast could not ride the player. The only issue I'd foresee would being correctly tagging the thing, so that the player gets it to act as they desire.

What i meant by vise versa is that you were a domesticated organism.

That can happen. It's a smart evolutionary move for you to make, since it ensures your species' survival.

If they did ride you, how would you control it. Would on screen directions tell you which way to go, or would you have no control what so ever.

On-screen directions would probably be better than being controlled, at least initially. If you fail to follow the directions, you can 'fail to be domesticated' and so not head down that evolutionary route. If you do enough, you could get an 'auto-direction' toggle when being ridden. The on-screen directions (non-auto) can then just provide the player with gameplay.

So say if your domesticated already, since you have control you can be that annoying one that let's no one ride him...
