The Yellow Stamina Circle

Stamina allows the ability to perform actions and is part of the vitality of a hominid.


Stamina is depicted on the HUD at the bottom of the screen by the yellow circle that appears when all Energy has been depleted. Seeing the yellow circle indicates that your Hominid is getting tired. When this happens, the Hominid will be trudging very heavily and moving quite slowly.


Stamina is determined by the Life Expectancy level.

When the hominid runs out of Energy, Stamina will be spent to perform actions. At this point, it is heavily advised to stop and rest at the first chance you get. This will allow the green Energy circle to refill.

If the Hominid uses more than 50% of his/her Energy reserves at once, some Stamina will be depleted but can be regained by resting for a moment.

If for some reason it is not possible to rest and restore Energy, it is possible to perform actions with Stamina but there is a cost. Overall Stamina will be reduced until it is restored by Eat ico.png eating, Drink ico.png drinking, and MindIcon SleepSpot.pngsleeping. The Energy reserve will be temporarily be lower until Stamina can be restored.

If the hominid is pushed past tired and depletes all of the Stamina, the red Life Expectancy circle will appear and will begin to drain. This is trading overall life to perform actions. Only in the most dire situations should this be done! If the hominid stops and rests, some stamina and energy will be regained, but the Life Expectancy that was drained will not regenerate.

Learning specific neurons reduces the negative impacts to stamina usage and increases positive benefits with respect to stamina.

Restoring Stamina and Energy[]

Restoring Stamina

Stamina and Energy can be replenished by eating, drinking, and sleeping.

There is a special pulsing yellow indicator that appears over the Vitality circle when restoring Stamina and Energy. This pulsating circle will indicate the need to (or not to) continue doing those activities. The pulsing yellow circle will flash to green when enough of that activity has been completed and is fully restored.

The green Energy circle will also increase in size while the pulsing yellow indicator is happening indicating that restoration is taking place.
