Star Control 2 + Master of Orion crossbreed?
« on: December 04, 2003, 01:35:12 am »

Hey, I babbled something like this to the always-empty IRC channel.  Tongue

232228 <Fsi-Dib> Alkari - Yehat; Bulrathi - Thraddash; Darlok - Utwig; Elerian - Syreen; Human - DOH!; Meklar - Mmrnmhrm; Psilon - Arilou; Silicoid - Chenjesu; Trilarian - Orz;...
232528 <Fsi-Dib> Alkari and Yehat are both avians. Bulrathi and Thraddash are both bullies and wrestler like. Darloks and Utwigs both wear masks. Elerian and Syreen are both female AND blue (weird). Meklars and Mmrnmhrm are both cybernetic. Psilon and Arilou are both humanoids without pupils. Silicoid and Chenjesu are both mineral. Trilarian and Orz both are underwat--... I mean underliquid beings.
232537 <Fsi-Dib> Cool.

There's quite a lot of similarities. Smiley

I left away from MOO: Gnolams, Klackon, Mrrshan, Sakkra
From SC2: Ilwrath, Umgah, Slylandro, Pkunk, Shofixti, Ur-Quans, Supox, Druuge, Mycon, VUX, Spathi, Androsynth (?), Zoq-Fot-Pik, Chmmr, Melnorme.

Oh and I don't count those Orions, Antarans, Taalo, Burvixese, *Nnngn*, Keel-Verezy, Yuli, Drall, Dnyarri, Faz, Gg (good game! har har har), Yuptar, Mael-Num ...

Eh, okay, maybe I was a little confusing, so I'll try again. Even though this whole idea might be a little off-topic, but it has SC2 somehow in it, so I guess it's okay. Cheesy

So I was wondering if anyone else had played master of Orion (2 or 3, I hate the third--... just like with Star controls!!) and made a race named eg. Arilou, took the Psilon portrait and made a Telepathic Trans Dimensional craprace.

Yes, I do assume most of you have played Master of Orion 1/2/3.

[OTT]I hate Master of Orion 3.[/OOT]

I'd equate the Gnolams with the Druuge or Melnorme.

Darloks might be visually similar to the Utwig, but their devious nature reminds me of the Ilwrath.

Maybe, but the Ilwrath don't exactly seem the type to keep a darlok's low profile. Of course, being spiders, perhaps they would... hmm...

Well you can't find a totally identical similarity. You have to choose physical appearance or attitudes and culture. Or both. Eg. Darloks and Utwig both fit to themselves since they both wear masks/other consealing outfit. Oh and do you find an extra-sneaky spying race from SC2? Wink

Ilwrath and Klackon would fit for only one reason; both are insectoids. But they don't have anything else in common. Heck, there's no race in SC2 that would be unificated... oh let's not count Mycon or some of those other weirdos.

I would really like to play a huge 8-player MOO2 game with SC2 races ... but I still find the IPX a huge problem, though I've heard Kali can convert IPX to TCP/IP ...
