Where are all of the animals?

If I recall there were quite a few organisms from the old terrarium.  Where did they all go?  The current terrarium doesn't have any plants and I wasn't able to find any descriptiong of how to create plants.  I may have missed it so if I did could someone point me to it?


BTW - big ups for getting this thing rolling again.  I always thought it was a shame that it fizzled out.

Yea, I didn't find any plant too. So my poor creatures are all starved to death, yea, they're really dead.
I noticed there are some sentences in the doc named Advanced Develop Guide said that "Plant Eats Sunlight"?!
And I tried write some plant, but it doesn't work at all.
So can you give us some hints about the plant problem

Plants are boring and have very little capabilties (other than to breed). Sorry but the advanced developer guide was written by Microsoft and I haven't had a change to go through and either a) remove anything they wrote that they didn't implement or b) implement what they spec'd out.

There is a plan to make plants more interesting and useful. Right now just create one using the guide (there are samples on the wiki too) and plop a few in your Terrarium to keep your animals happy. Remember that you need plants to feed the herbivores, and herbivores to feed the carnivores in order to get a full cycle going and keep the animals alive.
