Drop a "Monolith " in that Planet. then come back later.

They will thank you for upgrading thier race.

It's for the Brain Surgeon badge it says to promote them from creature stage to tribal. Monolith makes them from tribal to civilized.

I think it'd be cool if you find an item in creature stage and that allows you to change to tribal stage then you find out a space ship gave it to you when you get to the space stage and then the race that helped you out there starts talking to you.

Actually the monolith will advance creatures to tribal, tribal to civ, and civ to space stage

The monolith can't be used on Civilizations, only creatures or tribes.

The tooltip is a mistake.

Ferret is quite wrong. I've used Monolith on a few planets in the Civ stage quite fine. I didn't think they could be used on those in creature stage though.

Ferret is quite wrong.

So I am, so I am.

I know I tried it on Civs in my first playthrough. And I know it didn't let me, for some reason...

Anyway, it definitely works on creatures. I have transformed about 15 wild planets so far.

I think that the Brain Surgeon badge description is erroneous because i have received the badge after promoting a civ to space age and not after promoting a creature to tribal. So basically, I think the badge if you advance any race to the next phase
