Time Warp

#1
This game is mainly based on evolution and the problem with watching it is it takes a long time for creatures to even evolve using the natural selection so they can move around under control, so I think a time warp would be very useful to skip through evolution and see some proper creatures.

I've thought about this some too! It's a good idea, but tricky to implement because there's no way to predict the outcome other than letting everything play out. So it would be necessary to run all physics / AI /etc at higher speed, but for almost all PCs, it takes everything the CPU has just to keep it running smoothly in real-time. I'll keep it in mind though and there may be ways to run a sort of pocket universe, like a small population of a single species, in high speed.
