    The Hylotls are pretty much that conceptually.

    Well, I have essentially created a functioning mod for this now.

    Some more eye colours maybe? Or make the eye all one colour but a bit smaller, or with multiple colours instead of just the white and the pupil

    tbh sentient vomit is better than a lot of other suggestions

    Sorry for the inactivity, life is busy as you all know.
    I really would like to see that.
    We actually did get some interest from the devs early on, although a few of the contributors kind of got burnt out by the long wait for 1.0. The header picture and one other were both made by artists on the team.
    I wove the mentions of rebels at various points into the overall narrative to allow for multiple possible reasons for the playable Oscura's motivations. Anything from a scientist who stumbled onto forbidden truth to a factory worker who attempted to unionize would all be possible reasons behind the need for flight. Not sure what you mean by overall description though.

    This is truly amazing. It's about the best idea I've seen from the forums so far.
    We need this as a mod. It would beat just about all the other races.

    Literally the only thing I can think of that could be even close to an idea to improve is maybe throw in brightened or darker splotches on the bodies as maybe slight imperfections or deviations in the body.
    Other than that 10/10!

    Honestly gotta say man, that is impressive, and kind of frightening. I had just recently came up with damn near the exact same concept without even seeing any of this and then I was told someone beat me to the punch like years ago

    But hey, I gotta give credit where credit is due, Its really a great idea if more than one person came up with it almost to a T :)

    I came up with a similar idea, but I was going to use any of the game's liquids and not just oil. Industrial and oily guys are more specific and fleshed out though. Either way, some form of liquid race would be sweet.

    Woah, why the sudden necroposts?

    Because discussion of the Fenerox has brought up the need for unique races, and this one really fits the bill...

    For the ship it should be like an old mafia car you see in the movies and then progress into a giant limo
  15. Relten

    Relten The Waste of Time

    They already have a ship of their own :D
  16. Clint Kero

    Clint Kero Void-Bound Voyager

    Well thats coo
    Well thats looks great but maybe it should have a slightly darker color.

    That and if chucklefish was to add this it would need to have a hovercraft and mech plus a boss to fight

    Why would it need a Hoverbike and a mech? Racial vehicles have been apparently scrapped, as only what used to be Human hoverbikes are in the game, while Mechs are dummied out.

    K then but that doesnt change the fact that a boss fight is needed

    Maybe like a big oscura crime boss.

    The novakid have set a precedent for not needing all those things for every race. The oscura could be implemented as just another race, like the novakid.

    The only thing required is the race itself, a ship, a backstory and race specific flavor text when inspecting objects.
