A bit of a far-fetched idea, and something low priority, but it would be cool if you add some sort of “possess” option, to be able to control one of the beings, and act as one of them. Possibly if you ever introduce medieval weaponry, you could possess a sapien and fight either other players with an army behind you or just npcs for food like those chickens you introduced a while ago.
Possess a sapien planning on cutting down a tree.
Press W to make the sapien sprint/run instead of run/walk.
Time left-clicks with axe swings to double the reward or speed up the process.
Example War Scenario:
Possess a Knight figure to make him the general.
Entire army behind you.
Approach enemy civilization.
New set of interaction icons since you are “at war”
Command your army to break/scale walls, fire arrows at the opposing army, etc.
You help them, or fight 1 on 1 with another player-controlled knight.
