Playful, pesky and borderline obnoxious.

    Please refer to the included readme file.

    The Neki (pronounced "neh-kee") started appearing exclusively on Earth, causing a wide range of reactions - from passionate attraction to downright repugnance - but as their presence grew, they became as familiar as street cats are to most humans. Unlike cats however, Neki are remarkably sapient, being craftier and more resourceful than most of their human counterparts. This earned them, on one hand, strong resentment by some, but on the other - high regard among others and admission to numerous respectable and fundamental human institutions.
    One such body is the Terrene Protectorate Academy.

    You are one of the Neki.
    Your memories prior to your enrollment into the Academy seem vague at best.
    A feeling that there's more to your life than you are aware of, constantly haunts you.

    Opinions vary, but it is most widely believed that the Neki are the brainchild of a renowned and eccentric, if somewhat deranged, entrepreneur of old. Their virtually limitless resources allowed for an extensive research program which employed the brightest scientific minds of a generation and would go on well beyond their own lifetime; its' findings, however, remained largely unpublished. The project was later abruptly overtaken by the U.S.C.M, vanishing from the public eye practically overnight - with evidence of corporate espionage resulting in the Miniknog acquiring large swathes of it surfacing not long after.

    The Neki have a playful, pesky and borderline obnoxious nature, always looking to discover more things to eat, places to sleep and stuff to play with, even (and especially) if the stuff is opposed to the idea. They stand out among humans for having large ears, tails and lush fur in a variety of colors covering their bodies.

    The fragile Avians and Hylotl, having been constantly menaced by the Neki's inexplicable tendencies to smell, lick and even bite and tackle them without warning, are justifiably wary.
    The Glitch, being generally perceived by the Neki as large animated toys, find them to be mostly harmless and amusing, albeit oftentimes rather irritating.
    The Florans enjoy the rowdy nature of the Neki, with the occasional ruckus providing them the much-needed breaks from having to adhere to social norms devoid of casual violence.
    And the Apex? Well...

    1. Sleeves appear mis-aligned while sitting. Workarounds:
    • NekiSit, fixes by applying the Neki sitting pose to all races, or;
    • NekiNoSit, gives the Neki the vanilla sitting pose, and/or;
    • Using the Invisible Fabric clothes as cosmetic items.

    This mod is excellent, but there's also a version on Steam. Should I use this one or should I use the other one? And will Steam mods that effect the Neki also effect this one as well or will I have to also get those mods from here?

      Thank you! :3
      If you're already using the Steam version - you don't need this one, as it is simply an unpacked version of it. Any mod that affects the Steam version will affect this one in the exact same way :)

    You know my opinion on cat-girls, but that doesn't change the fact that you did good work! Have a 5 star for the effort. Note: Your racial traits for FR are vastly OP even with the penalties. (Way, waaaaay too powerful and breaks just about every limit rule we have in place. I hate it.) However, design, style and effort prove your skills and you deserve credit for the final product.
