Understanding natives is an important part of the game. More so for races
like the privateers and rebels. But all races benefit from the use of
If the planet’s natives like you they will move into your base
but if another base is built on that planet and the natives like the
other race more than your own the natives will leave your base and join
the other race's base.

Big and very hungry. They can be very dangerous.
They are attracted to bases that have a stock pile of Lerchin
Spices in storage. However, they will not join bases of
races that have over 80 PSI. Once in a base they will produce
1 kt of Lerchin
Spices per 500 amorphous in the base. But on a planet it
takes 1000 Amorphous to produce 1 spice.
They will attack and eat colonists, crew and troops living
in a base on a planet. The Amorphous in the base will attack
if there are any Amorphous on the planet attacking. If there
are just Amorphous living in the base and no Amorphous living
in the wild on the planet's surface no attack will take place.
Every 300 Amorphous will eat 1 colonist per turn. Crystals are
immune to this attack.
If all the colonists, crew and troops are completely eaten

onto the planet's surface.

types every turn. Most of the time it is only 1.
For each 200,000 Amphibians present, up to 8 weapons can be
made of each successivly higher weapon type. Max would be at
4 million Amphibians, then you can possibly get 16 weapons of
all weapon types. I think it is better to have then in 50k boundless.

It is tricky to get Chupanoids into a native pod. If their
happiness is under 70% they will not get into the pod at all.
If they are more than 70% happy there is still a 30% chance
they will escape the pod before it takes off.
The ship device known as the Eye
of Madagon will increase their happiness level to 300% and
cause Chupanoids to instantly join with any base on the planet.
Also if you self destruct a pod full of Chupanoids, you will
find them randomly on planets in a 350 ly circle, and they wont
be happy, eating even more food.
If your colonists run out of food and start starving to death
the Chupanoids will begin eating your dead and rapidly grow
in number and happiness.
Never put Chupanoids on a pod with other natives, the other
natives will turn into Chupanoids.

back if they are not happy.
