No Point to make Civilization Outfits?
« on: September 15, 2008, 03:17:32 am »
Think about it.
You don't encounter any different races in the civilization stage, and your only gonna see the other aliens in civilized outfits if you zoom in really close to see them. I Don't get what the point of making civilized outfits is.

What's the point in making creatures shaped like lemmings?  What's the point in creating a vehicle that isn't just a big box with guns?

I like playing dress-up with my creatures. =P
Also, if people see them in Space, they will be all decorated and stuff. =)

Exactly, the entire point is to have fun customizing your creature.  If you're going for functionality your creature would be a grey blob with all the best parts while everything else would be untextured boxes.

I would love MORE clothing choices!!  So far the ones there are good and with some creativity you can make some cool outfits.

I would be happier making even more though. :P

Don't forget the communication screen. Others can see the outfits there too. >_>

Yeah, I'd love more outfit options. I'd love some more simplistic shapes, even, that you could fashion into highly customized clothes. Instead of dropping that adorable top hat on my creature, I would like to place a few flexible shapes down to craft my OWN hat.

As it stands, though, I love putting clothes on my creatures. Especially in tribal phase. I love taking a bird creature that already has a crest and giving them a full feather headdress. It's pointless and I love it!  ;D

Yeah, i generally try to make the costume accent whatever outstanding physical features the creature has.  Sometimes its a real challenge finding ways to make the "clothing" go on a creature.

I just think of it as great way to flex the creative muscles even more. It's fun finding different uses for the items they give you. Make kneepads from masks and shoes out of pauldrons.  ;D

The point is to make it look good. What's the point of amking a ship, then, rather then putting on a bunch of cubes?

"What is the point?" threads always result in an increase of my therapy bills.

I mean really, why do I wake up in the morning?  I'm pretty sure I'm not going to develop immortality, the theory of everything, a great book, or a way to improve Ziti, and we all know these are the only things that really matter.



So when it comes to costumes I'm willing to let people say the point is "They enjoy it." 

Now I need a drink.
