New Race/Factions with DLC?

Post by Gunner6000 » Thu Dec 08, 2011 3:25 pm

NOTE: *THIS IS COMPLETE SPECULATION*

I've scowered the internets and have not come up with any info on this so im just going to ask...

If(and thats a big IF) Kerb were to add another race/faction into SOTS II with later DLC.... What kind do you think it would be or would like to see?? Im thinking towards a Feline type species kinda like the Khajiit from the Elder Scroll franchise.

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Khajiit

They could be a highly scientific adaptive species... New upstarts from some other corner of the universe. 1st contact would be with Zuul who enslaved their 1st off world colony. Saddend by the loss of their Litters(Cats have litters of kittens) and fearing the fate of their colony may be coming home... the clans unite and become 1 for the first time in their history.... you see where this COULD go... just wondering if anyone else had simiar ideas for other factions... maybe something less.... carbon based??...

Personally I am more interested in something along the lines of a large herbivorous mammal - like an elephant or giraffe. :D

How about a truly alien life form? As in, something that is not so obviously evolved from life on earth that you can say "Hey, it's a giant evolved lizard/bug/opossum/dolphin/bird"
Plebeian. Adj.
1. Of, belonging to, or characteristic of commoners.
2. Unrefined or coarse in nature or manner; common or vulgar: plebeian tastes.

Unwashed. Adj.
1. Unclean
2. Plebeian: the unwashed masses.

I'm hoping for Gas Giant Balloon People. I've always liked balloon people, one of my favourite Iain Banks was Algebra, even if they were more accurately Gas Giant Wheely Balloon Avuncular People.

All we know is that it's a race that will incorporate/introduce ground combat, so it's probably not gas giant people. Although gas giants in the game have been giving me a foreshadowing vibe from the get-go.

Well since most biological lifeforms must follow some basic rules regarding function and structure, and since there have been a few documented examples of extra-planetary forms of bacteria - which are recognizable *as* bacteria, I would imagine that life on other planets would follow similar patterns of development. Obviously there would be chemical and physical differences, but the principle of "similar function leads to similar design" would result in alien organisms that have some similarity to earth organisms. Therefore, we would naturally make the analogous comparisons like "They're three-legged space monkeys" or "Giant Wingless Bumblebees". There really is no conceivable form that we could not find some sort of comparison on earth (even if it *is* psychic rocks).

That being said, I'd really like to see Moles with their subservient Gopher slaves flying giant rock ships and invading lawns everywhere.

Um... Nope. Not a one. Nada. Zilch. The only life we have yet found is on Earth.

Have those martian rocks been placed on the 'not actually the case' list now then?

Its very hard for the scientific community to acknowledge or accept the findings of others.. there have been studies that have proven and disproven it from independent universities around the US and Europe.. thats not a bad thing at all though.. I wouldent want to live in a world where everything is accepted without people asking questions 1st..... but i wouldent recommend becoming a scientist if you cant handle constructvie critisim for decades :D.
