I tried to find this in the forum but couldn’t, so I apologize if this has been covered and I missed it.
I love the 4 races in the game, but one of the things focusing on the combat will do is to drive the desire to have more visual content. I see we have an insectoid looking race with pointy ships a race full of circular scaffold ships and the other two which are pretty much standard sci fi-ish delta shapes.
What about cube/rectangular ships… big ugly purple/red blocks with stuff sticking out of them (the concept art is in my head already lol).
Or what about another totally organic looking species with greenish/yellow looks to them, but less pointy than the current race more with a salvador dali feel to them, flowing and slimy looking: like the ships were grown in vats.
And then also possibly an extremely sharp delta shaped race with deep green and blue coloring and fighters inspired by the mospaeda Alphas.
Also some ships with an offset verpine inspired look to them would be fun, where they aren’t bilaterally symmetrical but jut in different directions but still have a nice curve.
