    I actually wish that the races had more of a personality in terms of actions. That would actually help some races a lot, for example an Apex with a bulkier running animation, or a Floran that walks on quick feet. I'd love it if you could tell which race is running over there in thick armor only by investigating it's way of moving. Imagine a Novakid that always has it's hands on the hips like a western hero , ready to shoot their guns ( as long as they don't carry a weapon ofc. ( but we all know, who draws first, dies first)) . Back then ,when i saw the first avian art out there , i was really hoping for such unique behaviors , but instead, i had to realize.. that you can't even carry a shield with a spear. :chrono:[​IMG]

    Glitch necks, I never noticed anything about their necks (because they lack it?). And it's kind of a shame that glitch-specific armor is more often than not glitch-exclusive stuff.

    Their necks are so dark and tiny, it sometimes seems like they have none.

    I like penguins. Ther space-pirate-waterfowl! But my favorite is payable race is the novakid, because I like the cowboy theme.

    My three favorite are Novakid, Hyltol, Glitch.
    The Novakid are just the most aesthetically pleasing to me.
    I like these Japenese influence of the Hyltol the most.
    And the medieval style of the Glitch is also really nice.

    Apex are my favorite because they seem to have the most advanced and futuristic style of ship and armor, and I also like their style of stating what they mean.
    Note: my primary characters are all apex.
    Glitch second for the character only because I don't like the armor or ship, their style of text is helpful but not very interesting.
    Novakids third because the western style is not my thing, I do however love the character design.
    Humans next because I like their ship and armor but the characters comments and appearance are not my favorite.
    Hylotl next because I like their cultured ways but don't like their style of speech and find it needlessly complex.
    Avians because I like their jewel powered tech, though this cannot be acquired with the character and are mainly found in dungeons and villages, though it is still avian.
    Florans - Uncivilized, bad comments, primitive, dislike the character design.
    Florans are a disgrace to the space age travelers of starbound.

    Though I do find the aspect of teaching a floran to be civilized a rather interesting(and almost impossible) challenge.

    I feel like that's a bit unfair to call them uncivilized (and a little racist). They may seem uncivalized compared to western civilization, but they are very inteligent and have adopted and reverse engineered foreign technology to suit their needs, and figured out space travle in avery short amount of time compared to humans. And their "vicious" and canabalisticnature, is simply their culture.

    Floransss aren't ucivilized and premitve. They are jussst huntersss. Jewel-based tech is alwys cool. I aslo like Avian's egyptian culture. Humans are the worst. Apex're a bit rude nad gitch are barely programed.

    (If you can't tell from profile pic, it's Avian.)
    Despite their AWFUL starter clothing, the Avians get some pretty nice armor (Especially once you hit T2), and their lore is really fascinating to me.
    Also airship pirates. Airship pirates make them cool.
    Hylotls are a CLOSE second, because their starter clothing doesn't suck, and they also have a nice lore and cool looking weaponry.

    No way, those are my favourites too!
    My reasons: The glitch look a lot like a character I invented before I discovered this game. Also, I probably need to state my emotions before I speak as well (you haven't heard me talk) I always go for robots.
    I pretty much act like a Novakid (minus the cowboyspeak) I do wear a bandana though. I have a deep kinship with Novakids. The only difference is I'm extremely uncoordinated and have the aim like a cross-eyed Agaran (even in-game) so playing as them is difficult.
    Dunno, Hylotl just look cool (also, it's the only race I prefer to play as female)
    It's too bad that at the end of the day, no matter how interesting their lore is, they always end up being a human hardcore cosplayer gameplaywise. By default, humans are always my least favourite because they're everywhere and I get bored of seeing them in games where you can play as a non-human.
    Florans come in as a second, because they are just funny to read their comments. Apparently, the one true answer is ssstab.
    I like the Apex classic authoritarian society as a bit of cruel comedy and everyone's priceless reactions.
    The Avians tie with the Apex because their tech is really cool and I like airships. (Dev team, allow me a colander please)
    Overall, I am probably a weird oven person.

    As much as i love Glitch, i wish that they were wild west robots instead. My top 5 are Glitch, Novakid, Avian, Apex, and Hylotl. Floran is too primitive and dumb for my taste, and i HATE Humans. If i wanted to play a sci-fi game with unique races, why pick a human?

    okay, for the love of spaghetti monster, stop saying florans are stupid and primitive. I know it's a video game, and i'm kinda being a twt by posting this, but effing seriously its annoying. I'm not really trying to say that my opinion is more superior than yours, but come on, that's your reasoning for not liking florans. first, you need to actually read up on floran lore. florans are of course a race of carnivorous plant people with a culture like that of southern African tribes, that were able to reverse engineer alien technology. they were then able to develop space travel a lot quicker than other races. but wait, florans are just dumb and primitive, so how could a they actually figure out space travel? and also, how come people always call florans dumb, primitive brutes with no emotions and only use their predatory instincts? I swear this is so ffffffricking stupid I might actually have to make this into a topic itself. so, I guess my arguement is, if florans are so primitive and stupid, how could they already develop space travel, and have a complex culture?
    side note, just because a group of people (or in this case, aliens) isn't as advanced culturally, doesn't make them primitive. the Europeans had that same mentality and look what happened to everyone else on planet earth.

    Considering spaceships are meant for space and not atmosphere, does being aerodynamic actually matter in any way?
  20. Tet the Zoologist

    Tet the Zoologist Space Penguin Leader

    That's what I've been thinking! In a vacuum where their is no air resistance, Ther is no need for any aerodynamic shapes unless your ship goes into an atmosphere (which you don't in starbound).
