    Soo how are you guys doing?Let me get straight to the point what are your favorite races (you can put even modded races no problem) based on 3 different scales
    1. Esthetics
    Pretty self explanatory your order of races on how much you like the design for me this one would go
    1.Novakid-Literally cowboys....they cool boy
    2.Avians-I'm the Crow pretty self explanatory
    3.Blattra(modded)-Fallout Radroaches on two feet that can be friendly
    4.Lamia(modded)-Snake people...they are cool
    5.Hylotl-Eatern culture themed fish like people.... basically walking sushi

    Another self explanatory one.Based on the backstory of the race...but since I'm incultured in this detail I only have 2 spots
    1.Apex-Giving away looks for intelligence .....I'd give 1 one my lungs and 1 of my arms and my looks just to have their intelligence I mean boi
    2.Florans-They are carnivore plants...That is all I know

    more of race specific trait wich would be more logical if you had FrackinRaces since there are more traits with that mod soooo I'm basically gonna make this top based on that mod alone
    1.Humans-they have no distinguishable bonuses so they are great for anything
    2.Lamia(modded)-They are the best archer class type thing and they are good for me since I always use bows
    3.Orcana(modded)-OP underwater balanced above water,anything else?
    4.Vespoid(modded)-better agility in air less in water and sticky feet(could someone tell me what the sticky feet buff does,I just like them because of the sniper bonuses to crits)
    5.Novakid-versatile as hell with guns and also amazing in the sunlight

    Hope I didn't bore anybody since I want to be more active around the forums and I know there have been alot of these threads like this but hope I at least took a fresh take on it ...hope I don't start a race war

    I like the Apex and Floran races, their lore is great.

    For vanilla, I have to say humans because their scan dialogues are pretty humorous.
    For modded race Im kind of divided between Avali and Orcana. They both have fantastic blocks, furniture, and clothing that compliments their cultural pretty well.
    Dont even get me started on those awsome weapons!

    I love all the races, especially florans and hylotl due to aesthetic, also florans due to one of the codex's basically confirming that there are more socially acceptable ones like me.
  7. TheCrow7200

    TheCrow7200 Void-Bound Voyager

    Well florans are proven to be socially acceptable since the intro since there is that one floran that was proud to become part of the protectorate since most florans don't get the ability to get to that point...again most can't...but still they can be cool guys

    Yeah, Nuru is the best NPC in the game. :D

    Hands down my favorite race are Avians. not only are bird people a pretty cool concept, I also love the whole "future tech using ancient materials" thing.
    ships and computers made of stone and powered by crystals.
    They're awesome.

    theres actually a theory that their avolite crystals are made in blood rituals such as sacrifices, thats food for thought, certainly interesting(And kind of dark.)

    Given their structures, they and the Aztec have quite a bit in common it seems.

    Wow, you got me now......................hmmmmmmmmmmm...................... Well it really depends in what period of time you caught me:
    If I am again interested in 20th century, then I like Apex for their technologies, and their "socialistic" government or 1984's government. They somewhat remind me of 3rd German Reich, and the fact that they are military oriented with fancy uniforms truly helps them stand out when I am in period of liking World War II (rarely happens), still in many cases I love Apex for their natural looks, being apes with actual beards
    Then we have Hylotl, I like their Eastern/oriental feel, as I always prefered Orient over Occident. I like their clothing and their living space (being water;sea) which is my favorite thing on planet Earth, heck their superiority over seas is what made me truly love Britannia. Also with bows they could make for a race that is similar to Elves from Tolkien's Universe of Eä but also they are very similar to High Elves from Elder Scrolls universe, arrogant and superior in any aspect ;)
    And if I am in a period of Classical history then I like Orcana or Mantizi, for they have that Greek/Roman feeling. Especialy Orcana as they have that fancy, almost historicaly accurate roman armors, such as those worn by Roman Hastatus, the frontline infantry.
    If I am in a period of Fantasy loving, then we have Saturnians (my current profile picture) as they are Moth race of Wizards, with unique crafting station, armors, weapons, furniture, dyes, food and liquids (Lumen and nectar) and much more. They are extremely secretive without almost any lore, giving me freedom to write books in SB about their race and culture. They have that feeling of High Elves/Noldor from Arda (Eä) and the feeling of Altmer(Tamriel-Nirn-Mundus) being secretive, almost unseen, with beautiful architecture and much more.

    But from vanilla races I prefer Apex or Hylotl in any possible way of comparison. Especially Hylotl as historian (actually a chemist) as I am , I always like nation, countries and tribes that have beautiful and mysterious culture, architecture, government etc.

    I just wished there was a Victorian style race as it is my favorite historical period. And no I don't want Wild West as Novakids offer, but rather a proper European 19th century.
  19. Haliblossom

    Haliblossom Void-Bound Voyager

    Novakid, Novakid, and Novakid.
    I might have a Novakid problem. :unsure:
    Although there isn't much Novakid lore lol. So perhaps Floran for lore.

    1. For aesthetics, it's a tie between humans and florans for me. They both have a really nice ship and cool looking armor sets. They also both have a good variety of hair/foliage styles.

    2. For lore, I'd either have to go with the florans or the apex. The florans have the old war with the hylotl, cannibalism and tribalism and greenfingers who can reverse engineer technology. The apex have a tyrannical, big brother-esque government, rebel factions and the VEP that turned them into apex in the first place. There's just more interesting bits to these two races compared to the others in my opinion.

    3. I haven't used Frackin Races or any other racial traits mod so I have to hand the abilities award over to the novakids. In vanilla they have a brighter glow than everyone else.
