You just KNOW the Forerunners were all smilingly mysterious about it, too. "Why, yes, it iS interesting that we look the same, isn't it? How remarkable. What a mystery! Good luck working it out!"

We all know it's just an alternate version of Interstellar.

"No, we don't look like you, you look like us. We came first."

And then Earth hosed them up for being a bunch of smug pricks.

As a white American, it is my civic duty to kill my racist father, mother and any other family members, including myself.
That way people of color can finally be safe from white people.

Not as strong as you'd expect.

If I remember my Star Trek, the space babes WERE the space pirates, and the men were fronts.

Is there any worthwhile mod that adds Star Control 2 races as portraits?

You're right, that wouldn't be very heroic of me. It's a good thing I never called myself a hero!



Baronjutter posted:

Really? I noticed the same-portrait thing but never the same type. So like a human xenophobe will be less xenophobic against space elves than they will be against space birds?

At least I think so. There's definitely a couple of degrees of xenophobia. You also get a slight malus if you're a xenophobe and have gene-modded pops living together with un-modded or differently modded pops.

Well, I think I might start a new LP once cherryh is released? I lost interest in the one I'm doing due to these major version updates.

Seems like animations do exist in that open source sc2 project. Or are they video clips? Either way it seems like someone could rip those out and convert them to a compatible format.

That is actually a really nice addition because it means there are now optimal habitat positions while previously they were basically the same wherever.

Would it be possible to have stars add a bonus/malus to energy output on habs too? As they use solar arrays?

Yeah definitally possible. Good idea too since I do have star modifiers.

I also have periodic star output cycles now. Happens randomly on a few stars every 10 years, some stars have reduced output (-10% energy for entire solar system) and some have increased (+10% energy).
Works well and is very dynamic. I plan to add more stuff for stars that way too so the universe feels a bit less static.

I do like the events that come from some of the planet modifiers, really nice having a bit of dynamism in the galaxy.
