Is this still relevant information?

Thanks to the hints here, I found the Razorback and Bulbmoss, so I think I have them all now :-)

I'm still at 40 tasks, but I got more awards. I'm now at 12.

  • Score 95% or higher on your entrance exam
  • Invited a colleague to participate
  • Take your first panorama photo
  • Travel as far as light does in one microsecond (300m)
  • Take your first infrared photo
  • Tagged 3 different species in the same image
  • Travel as far as the Mars Spirit rover (7.73 km)
  • Scheduled a photo to be taken on Mae Jemisonís birthday (Oct. 17)
  • Travel as far as the Voyager 1 space probe does every second (17.043 km)
  • One of your photos was selected as a highlight by the science team
  • Scheduled a photo to be taken on Carl Saganís birthday (Nov. 9)
  • Tagged 5 distinct motile creatures

Are there any more birthdays? Do I have to play for 365 days to get them all?

How many am I missing?

I have a badge for Galileo's Birthday (Feb 15th)
Extrasolar / Extrasolar sounds as ringtone?

I really like the obelisk sounds and think they would make a cool ringtone or notification sound on a smartphone.

Could these be made available?

I was able to capture sequences the day before and the day after the conjunction.
Good work! Any links? It would be fun to see them. :)
Extrasolar / Game reset ?
« Last post by lovnlite on September 18, 2015, 08:59:54 PM »
Since there is no new games in the near future, Is it possible to reset the game so it can be played again ?
Or can a "randomizer" be put in place to give random mundane tasks to keep the game alive for hard core "Extrasolar" gamers ? Like a random plant or animal generator with the task of finding them or something like that. I long for more game !  :)
Cogs for Android / Cogs Crashes on LGL34C
« Last post by Shaunatate on September 07, 2015, 11:45:58 PM »
I have an LGL34C phone. And prior to purchasing Cogs, I downloaded its demo to see if I liked it. But it crashes every time I attempt to open it. I can't even make it to the title card screen, before the game immediately closes out, and crashes. I attempted this with another LG phone(same model), only for me to have the same results. I checked your Google Play reviews,  and filtered the results to show other players that downloaded Cogs, the result was only 1 player, they had the same issue.

What gives ?

This is a huge spoiler, be sure that you want to read it. also, dear lazy8 team, if this is too much information or anything wrong with it, feel free to reduce/correct/delete.

[spoiler]I talked about that with the team earlier, which kindly gave me some info on that. they are not animated in the sense of the word, but they are different in each picture.

if you take a picture, the server knows
- the place where you are and the direction you look in
- the population of that area
- the time
- the usual behaviour of the motos on that time (sleeping, walking, hunting...)
- the size/form/model of the moto itself
- points which are changeable (orientation of limbs, open/closed mouth, tongue...)

and then generates an image out of that info.


you take a picture in a bristletongue nest area in the morning.
the server knows that usually 2-5 bristletongues are there
also, they usually are awake and hunting (70%) or sleeping (30%), as you made the photo at a time bristletongues just stand up to go hunting
so it might generate an image with three bristletongues, two awake, one sleeping, one of the awake ones standing upright, one hiding.
or it might make an image with 5 sleeping bristletongues. or 2 which are awake. or any other combination. this is (sort of) random.

so, as you see, there is no need to actually animate the motos all the time - but it seems like they are animated.

also, this means that if you and someone else make a photo of the same area from the same viewpoint one second after each other, they might end up with entirely different situations, as one might have two motos and one might have zero.
