Your nightmare Creatures features

Awhile ago I made a thread asking what people want to see in Creatures. This is the opposite of that. Suggest the worst features you can think of for a new Creatures game. (Posted in Strangeo because this is more of a forum game than a serious discussion.)

Biomass comes back. It generates slowly over time up to a certain limit and there is no other way to "earn" biomass. There is also no way to bypass the biomass requirement for agents. You can increase both the rate of generation and the maximum amount you can have at a time... via microtransations exclusively.

Multiple virtual ingame currencies known as Norn Points, Grendel Gold and Ettin Crystals. You need varying amounts of each to perform even the most basic ingame functions. NP must be purchased with real-world money. There is no way to earn GG apart from watching un-mutable, bandwidth-intensive ads for horrendous mobile games and their even more horrendous knockoffs. EC are gained by playing demos of said mobile games. Each time you perform an action (feeding a creature, hatching an egg) it becomes more expensive. Eventually the game becomes unplayable due to the decillions of NP, GG and EC required to do anything.

Edit: You can also reset the game to earn legacy points that make the game marginally more playable. Doing this will wipe out your entire population, and there's no way to export creatures or save their genomes. [nevil]

Wait timers, loot boxes, micro-transactions, bloated spying DRM that prevents mods from functioning at all and requires an always online connection! Honestly, this all just applies to any game at all...

Creatures visibly and audibly go to the bathroom. This has no impact on gameplay, you just have to watch your creatures pee and poop now.

The game occurs in real time, meaning that you have to constantly check on your creatures otherwise they will die.

To mess with creatures, you have to control a shee avatar and walk to them. Then you have to manual control your hand to pet or slap them. Also the command line cannot be used and you cannot teleport anywhere. You don't have an inventory and can only carry 2 things at once.

You know...wait...nevermind.

It's always online, and other players can sabotage your world and get rewarded for doing so. You could just suck it up and deal with your favorite creature being dead or the hyper-aggressive grendels that were released into your population, or you could pay a fee to reverse the damage...

There's a really nice breed you can only unlock by giving the game (or "game";) a five star review

There's a linear story mode that gets far more dev time and attention than the sandbox mode. The story mode gets just about all of the lore wrong and really only exists to emotionally manipulate you into buying microtransactions so you don't have to see the poor norns' sad faces

Overpriced DLC for something simple, like enabling your norns to swim. It's a bit similar to what ylukyun said about in-game purchases.

Creatures still talk, but no longer have speech bubbles; you have to be able to translate their bibble sounds on the fly to know what they're saying.

And they can't be muted.
