Category Suggestion: Alien Zoo
United States

I was inspired by this Skyrim "Master Chef" run:

Although it's not on the skyrim leader boards because it's a silly category, I think this could be a potentially fun run category.

Basically the objective is to build a "zoo" with every piece of (movable) alien fauna and/or flora in it. It could either include or exclude sea emperor eggs. I would exclude them as it would then basically just be an Any% run without the rocket and sea emperor eggs aren't placeable in alien containment anyway.

AFAIK this would be: Eggs:

  • Ampeel
  • Boneshark
  • Crabsnake
  • Crabsquid
  • Crashfish
  • Cuddlefish
  • Gasopod
  • Jellyray
  • Lava Lizard
  • Mesmer
  • Rabbit ray
  • Sand Shark
  • Spadefish
  • Stalker

Grabbable Fauna:

  • Bladderfish
  • Boomerang
  • Eyeye
  • Garryfish
  • Holefish
  • Hoopfish
  • Hoverfish
  • Magmarang
  • Oculus
  • Peeper
  • Red Eyeye
  • Reginald
  • Spadefish
  • Spinefish
  • Floater

Plantable Flora:

  • Acid Mushroom
  • Bloodvine
  • Blue Palm
  • Brain Coral
  • Bulb Bush
  • Cave Bush
  • Creepvine
  • Deep Shroom
  • Eyestalk
  • Furled Papyrus
  • Gabe's Feather
  • Gel Sack
  • Ghostweed
  • Jellyshroom
  • Membrain
  • Pygmy Fan
  • Redwort
  • Rogue Cradle
  • Sea Crown
  • Spiked Horn Grass
  • Spotted Dockleaf
  • Tiger Plant
  • Veined Nettle
  • Violet Beau
  • Writhing Weed

Land Based Plants:

  • Bulbo Tree
  • Chinese Potato
  • Fern Palm
  • Grub Basket
  • Jaffa Cup
  • Lattern Tree
  • Marblemelon Plant
  • Pinkcap
  • Speckled Rattler
  • Voxel Shrub

I'm not talented enough to do an interesting speedrun of this, but it could be a unique challenge as you'd need to scan alien containment, exterior/interior growbeds and bring them all to a single location. I'd have the caveat that the "zoo" must all be located in a single base, and everything must be alive at the end of the run (tiger plant will kill your fish).
