    Um, mayhaps there is a little bias in knowing human history, as opposed to the snippets of history from the other races. The Miniknog took control of a interplanetary society and turned them all into apes inside of 10 years.

    Environmentalists care about the environment so much because A: We live on this planet, so harming it harms us and B: They believe that life is precious and rare in the universe and should be protected.

    Once humans could travel to other planets they no longer had to suffer for their mishap on earth, and when they discovered that 99% of planets have life on them they realized that life isn't so special. It's mundane and common, screw animals and nature.

    Yes we may ruin entire planets, turn their oceans into poison. But then we can move on. There is no limit of planets to use. No one will miss that planet, it is so un-unique. Let's be realistic here guys, Earth wasn't worth saving.

    Concerned. What is all of this fuss against humankind over accidental consequences that they probably dealt with about 500 years ago?
    If Humans did something wrong, so have the Floran, the Avian and the Apex's people with power. Blaming a whole species for the choices of the specific groups of individuals that have the actual dangerous power makes little sense for my fabulously advanced robotic mind.

    How about some other Species treat YOU that way & decide you're not special & screw you. Karma dude, Karma. :down:

    Glitch > Humans.

    Wow so much hate for humans...

    Which is what I voted for(Florans and Novakids are close seconds though).

    I feel many people don't like them because, on the surface, they are mundane. Everyone is a human irl and everyone knows their history. But we don't know the history of odd plant lifeforms or mysterious star beings, the two most "alien" species on that poll. This is the reason I believe they are there favorite. Apex, Humans, and Glitch fall to the back of the list because it is something people are all familiar with: gorillas, people, and robots. People don't feel the same to 3 eyed tentacled fish, Mesoamerican birds, gas bag people, or sentient man-eating plants.

    Another point: lets all remember humans have always warred with each other. That's how their nature is. And they all aren't the same, as some people have mentioned. Heck, none of the species are all the same. Apex have Big Ape followers and rebels. Florans have cannibals and "friendly" villagers. Glitch have those hostile fortresses and the cute feudalistic villages. Hylotl have outcast samurai and peaceful television-obsessed underwater villages. I can go on for ages.

    Personally I like humans for a few reasons. Their ship is nice and sleek, and even though the earlier Apex ship is sleeker, it turns into a rhombus in it's final form...

    Another reason is I can re create fictional and real life characters in game :p

    Have you seen these planets? You hop down, only wanting a little ore and the Wildlife is SAVAGE! They will rip you apart without a second though. We're doing people a favour destroying these planets. Those creatures are the bad karma. If they were docile like this cute PopTop I just picked up, then I'd leave 'em alone.

    Now excuse me, my adorable lil' PopTop seems hungry.

    I'd be savage too if somebody irradiated my home and poisoned my water supply, hah. Reminds me of "Feral Ghouls" in a sense. They were average people once, but due to the actions of others they have degraded into mindless monsters.

    Of course, capture pods seem to pacify nearly everything. I should know, I have a mosh pit of Moontants. I haven't even fed them a single bandit and they still play nice!

    Glitch aren't as harmful as humans because they never had the technology to become that way.
    Be reminded of what happened to the other simulations.

    Wild Animals will be Wild Animals. So, because of that, ya will be a Wild Animal too despite the fact that ya DO have more Intellectual Potential then that? I'm sure there's a USCM Prison out there somewhere with room for another Inmate. :p

    Also, not all Animals are bad. I've never seen any Fluffalo, Chickens, or Robot Chickens do anything bad. :)

    Counterpoint. The 'other Simulations' had a chance to become good Civilizations, but they blew it through their own actions. The Glitch are showing potential to better themselves, albeit slowly. The Glitch (The ones that found Self-Awareness & didn't get killed afterwards...) have differentiated themselves from the other Simulations. That's Achievement. Whether or not they will be able to power up their Civilizedness further is up to them.

    Why is everyone assuming humans radiated the water on toxic planets? 85% chance it was one of the other seven races. Could also be another species that did that to their home planet. And yes, even though we pollute a lot of waste, it is nowhere NEAR the amount where it is raining toxic rain every day and the waters are lime green.

    ...except maybe in Rio :rofl:

    I guess people assume it's humans because of the furniture, structures and backgrounds etc all look like it was built by humans. And then there's all the toxic barrels at the bottom of the ocean.

    Floran, not advanced enough to do it. Hylotl, care too much about the environment to do it. Avian, get power from crystals and don't have factories. Novakid, probably didn't, if they did they don't remember. Glitch, not advanced enough to do it.

    Apex and Humans are most likely to have done it. Strange no one thought to blame Apex though.

    I pondered the Apex as possible culprits till I found the Wiki Info for Toxic Items that said they had the "Human" Tag, then there was no more mystery left. Colony Tag's pretty much a Signed Sealed Confession imho. :p Also, to be fair, Apex have stronger Tech then Humans so I would assume that'd include stuff like Recycling & Trash Disposal Tech.

    Glitch Lore: Sometimes Glitch are built by their Parents & turn out to have Glitches of their own... these Glitches can easily end up being in their Head. :p
