yeah, you're right, maybe the scale should be changed so it's not as biased towards humans, but more concentrated on comparing aliens with Earth creatures in general...

Crazen, I think they would be a seven. They have recognizable features and developments, but they are not humanoid.
I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

well, I guess I should take into account that I dont have the picture desighned fully yet.

I'll just wait for now, but there should be different scales for human inspired and earth creature inspired

Well my orginal intention was to have most familiar (human) to less familiar. Which means even earth animals could seem alien to us. Such as an insects is more alien than say a mammal, etc.

That scale should only be used for humanoid creatures.

Sure! Sounds good, but ti will be extremely hard to do. I wonder if anyone could even get past a 9.

//I acctually have designs for a level 9 creature, but I was going to save them for a movie I plan to do during/after uni...//


I have a vauge idea for a level 10, though. I assume it can still be level to whilst still using cells, if not all cells...

I wonder if it'd be better posted as a new creature...

you want 10?  I've got 10.  A brown cube.  It's completley solid and has the consistency of like, hard chocolate, but it can move around and it grows.  That could be potentially 10.  It's like a living rock.

What i'm working on now is rather 10, and i'm working on it biologically (so that, to an un-probing mind, it makes scientific sence). And I started with a made up element, Carbogen, which has similar properties to carbon, but difference enough to decrease the aging ammount of the creatures based on and change what life is able to do with it. That's about the vaugest explination i've got XD

Hmm, well see, it's really tough to make a 10 that's still realistic simply because we don't know how life started, and therefore cannot easily come up with completly new scenarios.
