1. I didnt added it yet. I will consider to add them at post-main release stage (when all races unique character portraits will be done). They are still present tho are not as dominant at pure form as others, this also connets to Maori and some other almost extinct bloodlines. Humans for sure are not final yet.
2. Blue League - i like this one, but i already done alot of texts and stuff and Pact also refers to the nature of it - it formed by mainly selfish, pragmatic and phlegmatic aquatic and ursidian races, Ylta, Ortain, Haakonish and few others. and i felt word Pact (something about self-centered forces uniting in order to have united front and protect their interests) fitting this alliance.
3. Thanks for great read. I will browse it and perhaps some stuff will born from this. Thanks :)
4. I am not sure mechanic and game wise it will be strong decision, there is few very trade-oriented races, one of them is hardcore trade which played with bet on private sector - Such-Oos. There is huge variety of them iand i not sure it will be boni to be forced to build spaceports in every place, i actually do not like this, i prefer to add to race some character system bonuses or some trader group. Try Such-Oos - they are monster traders, they play for that with their weakness though and with their slow building times. they use unique cargo module and their frieghters can haul much more, and they are diplomatic race with bonuses on diplomacy. In addition to this they have Iocho. With Iocho they are fastest race to reach the end of Hi-tech tree. If they played right on both fronts of diplo and hi-tech and trade they can be monster private sector trade race with actuallt same network you talking about, since they settle everywhere.
Each trade race have own way to play it trade, there will be Teekan release soon they will also offer some options with trade.
Once i will release all trade races Character systems (there alot and htey should be different) there will be need to find something new , or may be wont, because options to mix races with addition of diplomacy and character systems are quite wide. Thank you for idea though, i will surely will consider it once i am done with what i have on the table and will test it.
