Looking for all your C3 tips and tricks!

Currently, I'm trying to write an agent for Creatures 3 that shows you a 'tip of the day' when you start your game up (or when you click the agent). It's meant to be similar to the system that Creatures 2 has. The tips and tricks will either be helpful to new players or they'll just be fun to read once in a while.

For instance:Beware of sick Creatures! You can usually recognize them by a limping gait or other noteworthy symptoms like sneezing, coughing or shivering.

Creature diets consist of starch, fat and protein. Starch is primarily found in seeds, whereas fat is usually found in food. Fruits mainly consist of protein.

I was thinking of writing all the tips and tricks myself, but I don't want to miss out on any additions that you might have. So my question is: Do you have any tips and tricks (for new players) for Creatures 3? :D

This seems to be a fun thing to do.
I will try to think of something to help you.

What I'm thinking of now is:

For more tips and downloads, go to Creatures caves.com [nlaugh]

Or a tip to connect objects to make a machine?

Maybe a little jokeline here and there ,like in the Sims, can be an option too?


(funny to write this in my old school English, while you're Dutch too :) )

You might like to model some on the original tips or the C2 tips.

You could put something about the medical bay. Maybe a tip telling people what knowledge stones do?

Edit: I think there should also be a tip for C3 standalone explaining what power-ups are, do, and how to collect them. Make sure to mention that only Norns can activate them.

I've honestly never had the brainpower or patience to build any of the machinery in c3, so I feel like super simple pointers towards how to make some useful machines would be really cool to have!

For instance, I know that there's some kind of critter injector for the aquatic metaroom- I'm assuming there's a way to hook things up so that it will automatically replace critters that die off?

Or maybe hints on how to make a sludge gun fire at grendels?- I recently introduced a couple of friends to c3 and both of them were horrified and completely stumped by the 'mean grey and green things' beating up their Norns and couldn't think of any ways to stop them XD Sounds like a really nice thing to get hints on!

Edit: oh! Maybe you could put something like 'have you tried searching for the biome controls?' because I stumbled on those by accident back when, I had no idea they were there!

What is autokill might be a good one, too.

The Creatures 3 walkthrough at the Creatures Wiki might also spark some more ideas.

Maybe a mention of some of the "must have" agents, like vital bug fixes?

A tip how to heal creatures as they have a surtain desease ?
Like letting them eat/drink more vitamine c for example?

Or how to incourage your norns to push the vendor buttons themselves to get what they need?
