These are the Quameno, a peaceful race of amphibians given to puzzle-solving, science and the study of galactic history and languages.
This is all the preview of each race I am hoping for. I wasn't expecting a portrait. I was thinking a copy and paste short sentence from the files or manual would be nice and appreciated. I like the styles of races in these games and the diplomatic relationships that play out during epic games.
Yeah, the portrait is very good.
If a little bit phallic
I don't see that. I see an alien, amphibian race(person).
I just hope the races are not cheesy stupid like in GC2.
Right. Because the races in MOO2 -- and at least half the space 4x games out there -- aren't "cheesy stupid" either....
Yeah, in these games, it seems that races often look silly. Some games have them look very good though.
It seems that Distant Worlds might have good looking portraits. I just hope that there is a wide variety of body shapes(not all humanoid) and biologies.
-a robotic/android race
-a cyborg race(part machine, part biological)
-a parasitic assimilating(absorbs and incorporates), bio-mass using race similiar to 'Zerg' of Starcraft, 'The Flood' of Halo, 'Tyranids' of Warhammer 40,000, or others similiar.
or others similiar.
-(one or more) insectoid race similiar to ants, wasps, mantis, and roaches
-a spider like race
-a crab like race
-an under water habitat race
-an ice habitat race
-a floater, gas giant planet dwelling race
-a scaled reptilian race
-a feathered avian race
-a furred mammalian race
-an amphibious race
-a tentacled race
I agree that Galactic Civilization 2 races are all very generic humanoid looking with little imagination used in design. I understand that it is good to have players be able to relate to aliens but to make them ALL humanoid(I think of Star Trek) is silly and boring to me.
