Quote from: Sig on February 09, 2018, 06:16:16 PMThank you for the ideas, I really appreciate them, after all it's the ideas what make things move forward, I have never programmed or modded before, but I wanted a race like this and since no one had done it yet I started this.
Quote from: Sig on February 09, 2018, 06:16:16 PMRelated to the cheap throw away upgrades, that is a very good idea, instead of bionic expensive parts, being able to grow specialized biological implants in an embryo or something (workstation) through crafting, implants that would substitute body parts and give special bonuses further than just increased performance. Using human meat to produce them or as stimulants as you propose would be an interesting idea. I think it is also possible to make some bodyparts show aditionally (or not show when missing) with the alien races framework, so it should perhaps allow the game to draw and actually see these bionic implants in their bodies.
Quote from: Sig on February 09, 2018, 06:16:16 PMTo be honest you are right about the clothes, one of the reasons I disallowed them to wear clothes was that I wanted to see their bodies rather than a megaspider head over a parka (they would always spawn with parkas due to their low cold tolerance lol). Instead of trying to make clothes that fit them, perhaps that time would be better spent making new more detailed bodies and heads, and tying them to backstories since the alien race framework seems to allow that, so each bacsktory would have a unique body, more bulky warriors, smaller gatherers, and so on, like it happens to some degree in nature.

Quote from: Harry_Dicks on February 11, 2018, 08:38:00 PMI ended up making a full post about my thoughts for a playable xenomorph (Alien, Aliens) race. Thought that you might like to take a look at it, maybe adapt some of the ideas. It is a little bit of a wall, I'll say. Only because I've been thinking about this for a couple of weeks. A lot of the ideas I had for that, I tried to adapt for your mantodeans as well. Anyway, of course I don't "own" any of these ideas, but thought that you might care to take a look, and see if anything would fit what you want for your mod https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=39028.0
