Introduction


Six billion years ago, as the rocky planetesimal that would eventually form the planet Kecantikan began to stabilize, icy fragments left over from the early stages of the system's formation moved into relatively stable orbits. The cycle of freezing and melting of the volatiles on the comet's surface by heat of their star, Kota, allowed complex molecules to form and reform, becoming more and more complex, eventually forming a mixture of molecules enclosed by a membrane that had the ability to reproduce a near-exact copy of itself. With the first seed of life planted and thriving, its evolution over the billions of years led to the formation of a complex biosphere based on photosynthesis, and the freezing and releasing of volatiles from the icy rocks that compose the belt, which shift from heated water and steam, to warm puddles, to small, ice-covered ponds. While the surface of Kecantikan is, in its 2.5 G gravity and tropical, humid climate, a thriving biosphere, it is through the challenges of living in a space-based environment that prompted the evolution of intelligence in the form of the Kosong.

The Kosong, founders of the Kota Coalition, are unique in their evolutionary history. Arising in an environment unfriendly to metallurgy, they have come to rely on complex biotechnology to support most of their needs, using metal in limited amounts, and only when necessary. Although they have not spread to other solar systems at present pre-contact times, they have, using large fauna specifically engineered for the task, created large clumpings of kuiper-belt objects in stable orbits around Kota, leaving most of the ring system to low development and wildlife parks(excluding their capital city, Mahata, the economic and political center of the system.), along with smaller colonies scattered throughout the system.

Technology I


Most of the Kosong's technology is biological, illustrated here by perhaps the most common of their ships. Mid-sized, this ship is mainly used to shuttle Kosong to the many different colonies that share their orbit around Kota with the home planet, Kecantikan. A combination of a genetically engineered fauna coupled with a fusion engine, much of the interior is filled with living quarters for the Kosong. Largely based off the basic Kecantikan body plan, the main superficial difference is the front cockpit, and multiple mouths that form a ring around front of the ship. Smaller, biological propulsion is used to steer the ship and provide some thrust, but most of the push comes from the fusion engine. A Kosong is included for comparison.

I assumed that was for starships. The Kosong have to physically drag these to their destination, which can take years. They'd be completely impractical for interstellar travel.

Everything is restricted. Dragging a near-instantaneous worm hole across the galaxy still creates a near-instantaneous connection between the two different sides. This is something we are avoiding for a while, until the technology becomes acceptable. How long until the technology becomes acceptable is generally going to be a while, until many RPs have passed.

Technology II

The most widespread of Kosong technology, farm biofilms feed the majority of the Kosong, and provide most, if not all, of the metals used to complement their biotech. Biofilms start as a mix of different cells all working individuals, grown in a lab. When introduced to the right conditions, they will organize themselves into the biofilm they were designed for, sometimes containing cells that function as sensors, cells that gather metals from their environment and emit weak radio waves, but in the case of the farm biofilm, most simply photosynthesize. Over the lifetime of that particular stretch of farm biofilm, excess nutrients and food from the biocells not dividing outward will be devoted to growing cells upwards. Once a "fruit" has grown to a specific height, it will begin to fill its center with "chum", the common nickname for the soup of nutrients used as a cooking feedstock, from which other foods to feed the populace are produced. Any excess metals from the ground will go in the tip of the fruit, to be set apart and processed separately.

The biofilm farms are not used in the ring system of Kecantickan, but outside of the colonies found in orbit around Kota. New kbos dragged out from the Kuiper Belt will be lined up so that the longest part of the axis is perpendicular to the elliptical, then given an extremely slight spin. A farm biofilm will be introduced(see above picture), which grows rapidly. In the light of Kota the biofilms grow rapidly, stopping at the point where the bulk of the comet blocks the light. The biofilm at the end, when the shadow reaches it, will die off, and at this point solid waste and water spiked with CO2 will be added from the colonies. Bacteria will turn the biofilm and waste, over the time it takes for sun to reach it again, into rich soil for the next growth cycle. Some of the rich soil eventually produced will transfered to new comets, to start a new biofilm farm.

Oh noez! Triple post!
Anatomy


1-Mouth) The Kosong mouth is flexible, spliting into three parts, being able to open up so that the entire mouth-chamber is exposed to the vacuum. At this point the esophagus is closed, leaving the mouth unconnected to the body. It consumes its food whole(In this case we'll assume the food is a Xangfu berry. The Xangfu plant produces fruit that is primarily oxygen, with some spores inside, surrounded by a nutritious membrane.), so as to not "pop" the food, because of the low pressure of space. Once its mouth has closed, carbon dioxide from the air-arteries(not shown), is shot out through angled holes, causing the air to spin rapidly. This lifts up small stones that the Kosong saves in its mouth, which, along with the sudden shift to a higher pressure, processes the food. The air, along with any food small enough to fit, is drained into the stomach. This cycle will repeat multiple times till most of the food is processed, with the Kosong eventually opening its mouth to let any indigestible parts out.

2-Stomach) The gas from the mouth, upon entering the stomach, is immediately pumped through the small intestine(3), and into the waste tank(5). The stomach then fills with gastric acid which breaks down the food.

3-Small intestine) A long tube arranged in a spiral-shape, any processed food from the stomach is drained of its nutrients, which are redistributed throughout the organism.

4-Brain) The Kosong brain is arranged in a torus, encircling the small intestine.

5-Waste Tank) Storage space for solid waste, CO2, and Hydrogen. Surrounded by an exoskeleton similar to the one that surrounds the body of the Kosong, waste products are compressed into the tank by the small intestine and air arteries.

6-Reproductive organ) Found next to the air-tube in each front arm, these control the reproduction of the Kosong. To reproduce, a male and a female will press front-arms together, locking them by intertwining the tentacles found surrounding the central organism. The air-artery connecting the arm to the waste tube will contract just below the reproductive organ, sealing off the waste tank, while the one connecting the reproductive artery to the main one. The male will release fluid containing haploid cells, produced in the reproductive organ, which will travel between the two air-tubes and be received by the female reproductive organ. When two different genders of haploid cells meet, they will join and become a diploid cell, and start multiplying at a furious rate. Once an embryo has become large enough, it will cling to the side of the womb and receive nutrients directly. The smaller embryos will die off, leaving a single one. During pregnancy time, the three reproductive organs will bloat, becoming twice their original size. Embryos grow long and thin, curling into a loose spiral. Once they have grown an exoskeleton, each embryo will uncoil and be pushed out of the airtubes.

7-Front-arms) The three front-arms are long with three manipulator tentacles ate each end. Air tubes extend through the arms which connect to the waste tank, using the mainly air-based waste to provide some thrust, steer, and slow down.

8-Heart) Like the brain, the heart is torus-shaped. It controls movement of air through the air arteries, compressing and releasing to push the different gases and liquids through the organism.

9-Oxygen tank) Stores compressed oxygen pumped into it via heart. Is surrounded by exoskeleton like the waste tank.

10-Back-arms) The three back-arms are similar in structure and function to the front-arms, but are only used to provide thrust and for limited steering.

Not shown:

Air arteries) Arteries that coat the body, pumping gases and small amounts of water and nutrients through the organism.

Skin) Flexible exoskeleton. Most remarkable is the harnessing of light to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, via a modified skin pigment. The gases are pushed into air-arteries, making the skin the major source of oxygen in a natural state.

Flash-shell) Shown in first post, the flash-shell is used in the Kosong to communicate. Divided into four sections(see first post), hydrogen and oxygen combining in different combinations of chambers produce letters, and combinations produce words. Flashes are extremely brief, and would appear as a single "flash" to the human eye.

Various other organs, most analogues to human organs. Many are toroid shaped like heart and brain.

Thanks! I want to flesh out there present state first(including that generation ship!) before I do the history. To tell the truth, though, it isn't that complex. As soon as they discovered stone tools, some were used to kill other Kosong. Because of low pressures in the vacuum of space, a single puncture in their exoskeleton would cause a Kosong's internal organs to instantly burst out. Massive losses in war led to natural selection favoring more passive Kosong, which means most of their history is rather dull. Their technological progress quickly hit a wall after basic stone tools, so they've been around for a long time, much more than humans. Eventually, after the discovery of the microscope(probably just a lens made out of glass or ice at first)coupled with their advanced eyes allowed them to see at the microscopic level, which led to an increased interest in biology(life was already a large part of their religious beliefs). Eventually with the discovery of DNA and the manipulation and mapping of the genomes of the native life, the Kosong were able to use surplus oxygen for metal smelting, which led to an increase in biotechnology, which led to an upward spiral to their present-day tech level.

Government

The Kosong government is based on a tiered system. The different bodies that make up the Coalition are called Federations, underneath Federations colonies, colonies into city-states, and city-states to communities. Each community directly votes upon a number of representatives based on the size of the community, representatives from communities vote on representatives for the colony, and so on. Any group can separate itself from any level, but groups almost always stick to their specific group because of lower amount of representation, most minority secession groups are unable to gather enough supporters to elect even one official in the level higher up, much less the level after that. Corporations generally do not form, with most industries dominated by loose co-ops, or larger jobs either handled by the government directly or contracted to groups of co-ops.
There are three main federations present at pre-contact times, the Kecantikan Federation, the Mira Federation, and the Outer Federation.

Kecantikan Federation: By far the largest in population, the Kecantikan Federation encompasses the rings of Kecantikan, and all colonies in orbits similar to Kecantikan's. Colonies consist of groups of KBO's dragged in from the Kuiper belt by Outer Federation-based co-ops.

Mira Federation: The industrial center of the system, the Mira Federation controls the colonies surrounding the planet Mira, as well as the trojans located at L4 and L5(though these have a tiny population). Mira is the only jovian in the Kotan system, located approximately 30 AU from Kota, having roughly 1 Jupiter masses. The massive ring system of Mira has been lit up by "sun lamps", large clumps of fusion generators that maintain orbit just inside Mira's atmosphere. A close proximity to the Kuiper Belt, as well as large amounts of light provided by the sun-lamps, ensure Mira's place as the industrial powerhouse of the system.

Outer Federation: A loose collection of colonies inhabiting the Kuiper Belt, their economy relying mainly on the export of KBO's to the inner system and Mira. Most of the federation's power and food come from fusion powered by fuel mined from the comets. Biofilms grow in large tubes, which form a spiral shape away from a main fusion reactor. The water is cycled into the biofilm spiral, where the heat provides energy needed for the biofilm to produce fruit and maintain itself. The cool water at the end of the spiral is harvested for oxygen, waste products are pumped into the spiral, and the mixture is passed again near the fusion reactor, to gain heat.

Technology won! I've reset vote count, added option for history and religion/philosophy.
Technology III

Computers:
Like the majority of their technology, Kosong computers are primarily biological. Complex webs of neuron-like cells grow over meshes of carbon, which are then absorbed into the cells. Specialty computers are transplanted into a variety of organisms, and different computers can be removed or added relatively easily. This is generally not necessary, however, because of the biological computer's ability to "learn". Virtually all Kosong have a small computer implanted just after decanted, although usually Neo-Luddites (see society and culture) use traditional birthing methods, and as such refuse the implants. The computers do not directly expand the brain size, but instead act as a virtual interface, "overlaying" images over regular senses. Larger computers also remain separate, and have a specially designed organisms that act like a terminal, facilitating their use.

Non-Biological Machinery:
Not surprisingly, non biological items (such as engine parts or lenses), are almost always prepared through biological means. Organisms bathed in a nutrient-rich bath are designed to form specific shapes rapidly. Large concentrations are specific minerals are introduced, and used by the individual cells to strengthen and begin to replace cell walls. Starting in the interior cells, this process will spread throughout the entire organism, until all that remains is a thin layer of a few hundred cells feeding nutrients to those in the interior. Larger components are assembled in sections.

Establish your main race first, then see how it goes from there. Really, it gets a bit tedious and annoying to have more than one race in the galaxy, especially if they are both involved in the same RP. Base it by need. Play through a few RPs with your main race before deciding. If you feel that these guys would fit in, and you could actually have a use for them then bring them along. If you're doing just fine without them, then don't bother.

No, the Cluster does have the satellite Galaxy, Gec said as much. And "failure?" You seem a little negative.  By Crossover Arc I mean.

That doesn't mean it's an excact copy. Many galaxies have similar formations.

And Kosmosis isn't a fresh start if you just use the same organisms. That would be just creating a board, and copy and pasting all of the stuff from this board onto it.

No, that makes it an Ultimate Universe. Straight up redos have failed very time or have your forgotten the New Galaxy and the Novus Cluster*

This isn't a retstart its a reBOOT, we're keeping both of the sites, and just using another for a new direction; if you want to leave the RG fine, but don't push it on us to do the same.

Those failed for other reasons than forcing people to be creative. In fact, I do believe recycled species were allowed near the end.

As Gec has said, Kosmosis is an attempt to bring back the pre-spore days. While I wasn't a member of this site at the time, I still followed spire and the creation corner closely. Wahat you may not realize is that the most successful(OG) had people focusing on and detailing to extreme llevels their organisms, and roleplaying was a mere afterthought. To truly bring those days back, we need to detail ou creatures, not simply throw up half a paragraph and start RPing, or reuse one and not update at all.

This is an RP board,rping as an afterthought, no matter how "traditional" isnot the way we do things here. Kosmosis is an RP board as well, you can't just plop down a creature and leave.


The Kosmosis board is an alternate GS board, thus its satellite galaxy is an alternate Novus Cluster.

I'm fairly certain with everyone joining the new board and making new creatures with it, most of them with the intent to RP, including the heavy hitters like Hydro and josasa, chances are no-one will ever, ever, ever use the dead old OG again.

I didn't say that. But part of what made the [OG] such a success was the amount of effort people put in their creations. Rping may be the largest component, but its no good RPing with someone who's creature consists of a paragraph of text.

And its not an alternate anything, I wish you'd realize that. Its completely new, a fresh start.

Its obvious that this debate is getting us nowhere. So let's call it a draw and talk about the actual subjects of the threads we post in.

Thought I might as well re-post the original Technology I Razo made me take down.

Technology IIII



The use of interfaces is one of the defining characteristics of Kosong technology. Created by enlarging wormholes and propping them up with struts of exotic matter, their use was the primary factor that led to the opening up and colonization of the outer solar system. Allowing crops to be grown even in the farthest reaches of interstelar space, it also allows KBO's to be dragged into Kecantikan orbit, and for Kosong to rapidly trade with their interstellar colonies. The Kota Coalition also has a history of establishing Interfaces in other specie's systems, creating a system of interstellar "highways"(with tollbooths, of course) in their interstellar neighborhood. It can take decades to establish a pair of interfaces connecting two star systems, however, as the receiving end has to be transfered to the area, and hyperspace travel with a bond in tow always ends with disastrous results.

Edit: By the way, the bright orange lights seen on the asteroid aren't the star layer showing through, they're Kosong working the crops.

By the way, anyone who can tell me where I got this from gets a cookie.

No. Don't ever use acronyms without explaining them first, ever. Regardless of how common knowledge they seem to you.

EVER.
