    If not marines, then atleast maybe survivor non-human? Doesn't have to be colonist, might be "guinea pig", or such. It would be cool to see "River Ghost" from "Predators". One better survivor won't crash balance.

    I'm cool with this as long is it doesn't turn into an excuse for putting furries in the game

    Unpopular opinion:
    The "C" in USCM should stand for "Catgirl". Change my mind.


    Jokes aside, I don't think we should add other species. Call me Arty is right, if other species were too be added then it should definitely be human variants. They should definitely have some sort of stat differences, because introducing cosmetic differences without stats is just letting people play dress up. But adding them at all would diverge from the tone that CM is trying to set.

    That's not too say I have a problem with servers that have other species. A server with all of the standard SS13 species in the game as marines sounds fun. The Corp heads off to fight some random enemies (maybe it rotates between a couple different antag options), commit warcrimes, & have some good LRP fun. That game sounds like it would be a blast, but it just doesn't sound like CM. I think any step we take towards that is a step in the wrong direction.

    Edit: The balance of the proposed human variants seems about right. I would consider removing -health from space adapted, but that really depends on what exactly toxin and gas resistance entail. Also, the mules not appearing through walls could be a bit too powerful.

    Typically plays: Adan Perez - A Charlie marine. Otherwise playing DZ-###-Y, the runner that's running around spinning like a 6 year old on a sugar high.

    No. Tell me MORE.
    Sometimes you try and compose where it was about the time and find yourself reading it has whenever it be.

    A lot of these things relate to gas, so I guess we could relate it it to boiler gas and air splash, but atmospherics is broken on CM.

    I know CM lore is a bit of meme at this point, but that would likely be the big gate keep for this. Even if one dark horse comic randomly referenced a species offhandedly, it is a hard sell to the general community to accept new races without being super memey about it.

    However, the idea of being born in space vs born planetside gives me huge The Expanse vibes, and is far more likely to fit with the canon.

    If any of this ended up in game, my money would be on a toned down version of them.

    this

    I don't really like the one where they can't see them through walls.

    That's asking for buckshot and slug ungas to all go as them just for that. Sight is EVERYTHING for xenos.

    But otherwise? Good stuff, maybe adapt it a bit better to fit with CM lore (wheeze).

    at this point an actual squad of chimps would probably outperform marine squads

    Furries bad
    Introducing furries leads to degenerate pseudo-RP that's often borderline ERP.
