Re: Emegency

Let's make a summary post for our learning fellow ant lover. 1. Check no more than once a week for a few moments at a time. The dark makes ants feel safe since they live subterranean lifestyles. 2. Get the ants identified. You won't know what to do with them if you don't get them identified, as you ...

AntRush!

I have recently discovered that a small game once thought lost to the depths of the endlessly growing internet has been dragged back to the surface by its creator. I wish to share it with fellow ant lovers so that it might see the light of day again. AntRush is a top-down RTS where the player takes ...

Re: Fun Concepts for an Imaginary Game

No it's fine, but I'll certainly figure out the logistics of it when I have the time. Right now, I need ideas for those traits if I'm going to make this a thing.

Re: Fun Concepts for an Imaginary Game

Well, Evolution does have a trait exchanging system so maybe I can do that for the needing to evolve. Hummm, interesting idea...Either way, I'd need a massive list of traits for each kind of insect before I could consider it. Bees won't exactly have any need for the ant's hooked jaws trait, nor will...

Fun Concepts for an Imaginary Game

A while back, I was randomly thinking about how amazing it would be if RTS games could become Massively Multiplayer. This is next to impossible to do of course, since it would have to utilize a system like the Total War games of recruiting armies in an overworld and only battling with them when they...

Re: OH-KY-IN-IL-MI Nuptial Flight Sightings

Haven't been able to find anything in the past few days. I've only seen two queens this summer and on both occasions I was not able to capture them. I just went out after the rain we had a few days ago and even then still nothing. Anyone having better luck recently?

Re: Camponotus tragedy!

I agree but these two were on death's door step. One was stuck in a literal loop and the other was nearly torn in two. I just helped the inevitable.

Re: Feeding new queens?

There are two types of queens: caudal and semi-caudal. Caudal queens are fed as much protein and carbs as they can be fed and sent off to mate. They can be recognized by their large thoraxes. After mating, they find a spot to nest, dig a hole, and never come to the surface again unless moving nests....
