Colonists - You can chat with them and have a nice conversation, beat them up and get them mad at you, and build a reputation among them! The colonists will also be of a race, and they will have different personalities depending on what race they are. They also interact with each other, generate quests, and have interesting facts to tell you, such as how to get an item, where to find this metal, stuff like that. I thought it would be really interesting to have people who can keep you company if you play single player! It could even involve multi player!
