How do I unlock more animals, plants and minerals?

Post by Xain » Tue May 21, 2013 3:30 am

I've just unlocked the third era (120min) and i've played a game on it, but there are still quite a bit of sources that remain locked to me. How do I unlock them? Say, whales for example, how do I unlock them?

And if I may add to that, it's a bit frustrating to get projects from the villages that you just can't actually do because you don't have good enough ressources unlocked (I'm talking about projects like the castle or the factory).

From what I've seen, you have to do as best as you can and at the end of that game several new sources are unlocked.

Whales for instance, probably requires you to do something like create a fishing village with over x prosperity.

Go to the unlock menu. There you can see all the challenges. Each challenge you accomplish unlocks a certain plant, animal or mineral... Unfortunetly, there is now way yet to know, what challenges unlocks what plant/animal/mineral...

To me, achievements do not unlock specific plants or animals. There are 3 levels.

You have to unlock a certain number of challenges in order to have the level 2 plants,animals and minerals (but your giants still need to have the required ambassadors to be able to create them in game).

In the same way, you'll have to complete other challenges to have the level 3 plants, animals and minerals that you can find on the wiki.

I don't think you have to worry about projects. In my opinion, you can't complete some projets until you're level 3. So start with the easiest challenges and then you'll be able to develop any project you want with the correct symbiosis.

I don't think thats how it works. You need X challenges done to unlock each era but the sources have a specific challenge attached to them and you must do exactly that challenge to get that source. Which is why it is basically impossible(or at least very difficult) to get utopia(6500 prosperity) completed on your first third era play through because you will not have any level 3 sources.

You could try doing mass production first,(6, 500 props villages) you don't want level 3 sources for that.

I started a 120 min era a little too soon. It's smarter to unlock a few things through 30 min era's. As a bonus, this teaches you effectivity of building up well for a longer age
