I added the Latex Foxes, practically Flexible's mascot. Go foxes!
I tweaked foraging so that your people will also look for interesting human artifacts while they're out and about, resulting in a trickle of science points. These precious starting points are what you'll want to boot strap your research efforts. Which means that assigning everyone directly to a job at the start is a bad idea, because no one will be available to go artifact hunting.
So, silly question, what should the item you interact with to actually spend your science points look like? It could be tribe specific, come to think of it... Thoughts?
